To whom it may concern,

 David O’Halleran

David has completed several works on my house to a good standard.  He has a range of skills, is hard-working and takes minimum breaks.  He communicates effectively by email, uses his initiative when necessary and always leaves the site tidy  I have found him to be trustworthy and reliable, often taking responsibility on my behalf for payment to other contractors and making sure that when he is working during my absence the house is left secure.I have particularly appreciated that on the rare occasions when factors such as unsuitable weather have resulted in a job not being completed on the days planned, David has always let me know promptly and finished the work at the earliest opportunity.  He has a range of contacts across various trades and acts as an effective liaison when needed.  He has always been willing to go the extra mile.

 

Client Simon Weeden. 

 REFERENCE:   David O’Halleran

My name is Simon Weeden and I have a house near Brantome which I purchased in 2010.

The house needed fully re-pointing, along the front elevation and down one side of the house as well.

I o obtained number of quotes for the work and eventually settled on the one prepared by Mr. O’Halleran. It was not the cheapest quote but likewise not the most expensive. However I was impressed with the time and effort he took in evaluating the work and discussing with me potential issues and problems due to the lack of care by the previous owner.

David started the work in spring 2011 and completed it by the end of July to my total satisfaction and on budget.

Following on from that I contracted David to build a pergola at the back of my house and a new patio area and carport at the side of the house.

This work was quite complicated due to the various levels of the land and other complications but the work was completed to my satisfaction by the end of August 2012.

Everyone in the village has commented on the quality of the work and they (like me) are pleased with the results.

The costs came in within 10% of estimates – which I had anticipated and planned for due to the potential time consuming complications.

David has also during this time carried out various remedial works inside my house including tiling and window maintenance etc – again to my total satisfaction.

I would not hesitate to recommend him to other Clients.

When it comes to deciding on a builder to undertake work on your behalf when you own a house in France, but live in the UK. Requires a high degree of confidence in not just their ability, skills and professionalism to get the job done, but also their trust. Dave has undertaken 3 projects on my behalf over the past 2 years and in all 4 aspects of what I look for, has delivered.
