The level of communication prior to the job was also very good – overall very well coordinated- very happy, would definitely use his services again worth the wait.”

Mrs S-Reading

Mr S – Wokingham

“Chris’s work was outstanding. Extremely pleased with the bathroom and how modern it now looks. We will be using Chris again shortly for the cloakroom and have requested him again to quote for further work on Stairs, doors and flooring. A hard worker who is good at all trades, flexible, prompt, tidy and very friendly.”

Mrs H – Caversham

“We couldn’t be happier with the our garage conversion / extension. Right from when we first met Chris we felt very confident that we wanted Chris Thomas Carpentry to carry out the work. We found his advice on materials, fixtures and fittings very helpful in our decision making. Throughout the project we felt that Chris was treating our job as if it was his own house he was working on. His attention to detail, quality of workmanship and how he managed to keep everything so neat and tidy was outstanding. We will certainly be using Chris Thomas Carpentry again in the near future.”

Mr & Mrs E – Earley

“Just want to say that Chris and his team are the best! Our utility room, kitchen/dining room, hall and cupboard in the hall are just WOW! It’s been an amazing time and it has gone very quickly. We will miss them. We will be in touch again but just wanted to say a huge thank you to them and to Michaela who has kept us all and the project together – communication is very important and thank you for that!”

Mr & Mrs E – Southcote

“Chris has pretty much rebuilt most of our house. He’s put new wooden floors down in two rooms (not as easy as it sounds, as the existing extension was a different height) and he put in a lovely new kitchen after knocking through into the old utility room. He was always friendly and well-organised, always turned up on time, and does really high quality work and his attention to the little details is always really good – if you ask for something in the middle of the wall that’s exactly where it will be, to the millimetre. He also managed to organise the kitchen refit to leave us with a functional kitchen for all but a few days and he finished when he said he would (even though we changed some of the spec half way through and put another skylight in). Lovely, high quality work. Highly recommended.”

Mr & Mrs B – Tilehurst

“I have used Chris Thomas more than once for the reason that he provides a fantastic service, amazing attention to detail, value for money and most importantly delivers a very high quality standard of craftsmanship and end result. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.”

Mr & Mrs C – Earley

“We had lovely new oak doors installed and also a new oak handrail and balustrades. Overall, we are really happy with the end results and would highly recommend Chris to others considering local trusted trades.”

Mr & Mrs H – Earley

“Chris has done loads of work for us, always excellent and to a high standard. He’s fitted a new kitchen and bathroom and removed a fireplace and re-laid flooring. Would highly recommend.”

Mr & Mrs M – Woodley

“Some of the best carpentry work I have seen and worked on, it is always a pleasure to work with this company because every finish is at its highest standard.”

Mr & Mrs M, Pangbourne

“We employed Chris to transform our kitchen dining room into an open plan kitchen diner and from start to finish it was a pleasure to have Chris doing the job. They both work very professionally and the attention to detail is second to none. As the work progressed we changed our minds about a number of aspects of the job but nothing was too much trouble. We are delighted with the new rooms we have and it has transformed our downstairs. We love it, the work is of the highest quality and I would definitely recommend Chris to anyone looking for work to be done on their house.”

Mr L, Purley

“We are absolutely delighted with our new kitchen, and very impressed with Chris and his team. Couldn’t fault them actually – turned up early every day, finished on time and cleared up every day. Would definitely use you again, and recommend you to anyone.”

Mrs D, Tilehurst

Everything was nicely tidied up when I got home and Chris had even done an extra small job I’d mentioned which was really appreciated. I’ll certainly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a quality, professional carpenter.

Mr H, Reading

“We are delighted with the new fitted wardrobes.  Chris did an excellent job.  Our house was left clean and tidy at the end of each day and the work was completed well within the estimated time.”

Mr Shah – Wokingham

“I just wanted to say how pleased I am with the work done last week on our staircase, it has far exceeded our expectations and looks considerably better than it ever has. I might have to break some more things in the house just to get Chris to come over and improve them! I will definitely be recommending you, and will be in touch for the next piece of work.”

Mr R Pike – Reading

“Thanks again for the work done this week, the finish is to a high standard and I’d be happy to contact you again in the future for more work.”

Mr Harrold – Woodley

“Chris recently fitted a new kitchen worktop for us. We’re really pleased with the results, and the work was done quickly, with attention to detail and a very clean and tidy job. I would definitely recommend Chris!”

Mr B Heatley – Wokingham

“Chris did an excellent job. He came for the first time to do the quote and talk about our requirements for the built in wardrobe. He gave us good ideas of what he thought would be best and what he could do to achieve it. He got back to us very quickly with the quotes, each detailing what it entailed. We found his quotes generally reasonable and even provided us with a solution of making it cheaper by doing the work differently. When we made slight changes to the design he had the thought of mind to come back to do another review of the job to ensure he could do what we were asking. I thought this was really good, he was thorough and he wanted to ensure he understood the job. He provided us a couple of dates within a 6 week timeframe to do the job. We thought this was reasonable but picked a later date due to our own requirements. Chris came and did the job in the time he said and was not required to come back and do any further work (have had this problem in the past with some tradesmen). The quality of the work was very good and he tweaked the design to look even better than we originally thought. We are very happy with the quality, how he worked, that he was prompt with his communication and the end result of the work. We will definitely be recommending Chris to everyone we know.”

Miss K Millard – Reading 

“We are really pleased with the work done on our bathroom by Chris Thomas, the work is very neat and has a great finish. Chris was great at overcoming any problems we had along the way and accommodating any changes I had too. Everyday our house was left clean and tidy after work. Would definitely recommend to a friend.”
