"Guildown carried out renovation works to my property including the removal and replacement of 2 ceilings, plastering and decorating as required. They also carried out interior and exterior redecorating. At all times their work was of an exceptionally high standard. I found them to be punctual, reliable and trustworthy. It was a pleasure having them working at my house and I have no hesitation in recommending them."
