what our clients say

It's really hard nowday's to find true gentlemen especially when you have to trust someone being in your home. Mark and his team did an amazing job and perfection is second nature to this man. I paid exactly what was quoted and this was a lot less than I exspected for a true master tradesman. I can not recommend Mark and his team more highly just make sure you have plenty of coffee and biscuits in store.
I would recommend B.G. to anybody, Mark came to advise us on what we would need to decorate a tired old bedroom ( no pun intended) this was most helpful and he saved us money as well as giving a discount for the job. As an older person I have some experience of tradespeople, and can only say it was a pleaseure to have Mark in my home, an efficiant clean worker, arrived on time on the day I chose. In my opinion the best person I could have picked to do the work.
I have recently had my bedroom decorated and a bi-folding wardrobe built in. I was really impressed with the personal level of service I received. My personal needs and budget were taken into account and understood. The end product was great value for money and of a very high standard. I will be using Brownsgunner again and would highly recommend them to friends and family.
I have recently had a new kitchen fitted by Mark and he did a fantastic job. He helped me in both the design and planning as well as fitting it for me. Very reasonably priced and professional job.
We had issues with the paintwork on our front door, the door wasn't old but paint a little flat, my wife decided for me to paint it !, she made a big mistake and i totally messed up. Mark in passing out the blue offered his services, how he made it look so easy, very frustrating when i am a bit of a perfectionist myself mind. I must say "What a lovely job". better than the day when the house was first built and even went out of his way to add the final polished and new fittings. Makes me wonder why i even thought about carrying out the paintwork in the first place when you have a clean and tidy decent genuine tradesman like Mark. Perfect job, many thanks again.
Extremely high level of work from a very professional and friendly company. Would highly recommend and we will be using them again in the near future. Thanks Mark for making the girls rooms look lovely.
Thanks to mark my garden looks great again, after the recent windy weather, I had several fence panels down, and a few other bits and pieces damaged, mark was very professional, was reasonably priced and works efficiently! Mark carried out the work in hand and  done a great job treating and painting our old shed, ready for the winter months ahead! One of the best people I've used and I highly recommend! No job to big or small, he is sure to do a great job with a personal touch! :)
I used Mark to decorate my house and I will never try and decorate myself again, the job was finished to such a high standard and at a very reasonable price would strongly recommend Brownsgunner to anyone.
Brownsgunner have been managing all the maintenance/decoration requirements for all my rental properties under the direction of Mark for many years now. Their very reasonably priced, loyal and provide a 1st class service. Over the years brownsgunner have saved me a vast amount of money and always complete the work without delay which ensures I avoid vacant tenancy periods.
One of life's gems, can literally do anything! Thorough, conscientious, hard working and punctual. Called upon these guys many times now for various property maintenance work including fencing, decorating, damp rectifying, roofing, fixing windows, installing a new bathroom and kitchen, so pretty much renovated my entire property! Not many tradesmen have the honesty that Mark has, you will never be 'ripped off' One criticism however, he will drink you out of coffee.
I cannot give Brownsgunner enough praise. Being on the cautious side and having been stung in the past, I am always wary having trades people in my home. But I can honestly say that Mark and his team are fantastic and do exactly what it says on the tin. They will arrive on time and complete the work to an incredibly high standard. The price was actually less than I expected, with absolutely no sacrifice in quality. If you choose this firm, I can personally guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
Browngunner painted my garden fence and front door and changed the door furniture. Mark is a complete perfectionist and was more fussy than I was, he ensured that I was happy with the job, cleaned up after himself and was very friendly and straight forward. I have no problem in recommending Browngunner - a great job!
As a private landlord with several properties having Mark in my address book is of massive advantage to me. I can make one phone call to Mark regarding any maintenance requirements and he takes care of the rest. He's polite, prompt, reliable and courteous to not only myself but my tenants. A superb service.
Really pleased with the service received and work was completed to a high standard in a very clean & tidy manner at a reasonable price. Mark always friendly, very helpful and informative. Would definitely use this business again in the future and would highly recommend.
After searching for someone we felt I could trust as we would not always be at home we asked Mark to complete the work we wanted done. Which included fitting a new bathroom, decorating our bedroom, hallway, lounge and extending the kitchen. Mark and his team completed the work just as we agreed. Every evening after work Mark would inform us of progress and finished the work to a very high standard. I must add even when the kitchen was re-done disruption was kept to a minimum. I on arriving home the house was extremely tidy every day. Highly recommended and a easy person to deal with.
Superb quality! Just had our house exterior, doors and trim done by Brownsgunner (Mark) and we can definitely say they did an outstanding job. Not only were they courteous and clean, but also showed great attention to detail, even to the point where it must have cost them money in order to get the job done right! All at a very reasonable, up front price. Would highly recommend them to anyone.
We chose Mark to re-decorate some rooms in our house and paint the exterior having seen the exceptionally high standard of his work on a neighbour’s house. It was the best decision we could have made. The thorough attention given to stripping wallpaper and preparing painted surfaces far exceeded our expectations as did the filling of deep settlement cracks in the exterior render. All guttering and drainpipes were removed, cleaned and repairs carried out to them. We also had a number of outstanding maintenance problems that had not been dealt with as we had been unable to find local craftsmen with the necessary skills. It quickly became apparent that no job was beyond Mark and his team. These included jet washing the patio and paths, fitting new radiators, stabilising and re-sealing baths, repairing a faulty tap, filling gaps around a window and replacing mortar where heavy rain had got into the house above the front door and to a brick wall that was in danger of collapsing. There were times when the work carried out looked perfectly good to our eyes but, if it didn’t meet Mark’s exacting standards, he would insist in starting again or improving what had been done until he was satisfied that a truly professional job had been done. Each day the areas where work had taken place were left immaculate. The team were polite, considerate and good company to be with. This was a real bonus as it can be inhibiting to have strangers in your home all day with lots of activity going on. We have no hesitation in recommending Mark and his team to carry out work, whether on a small or large job, to the highest, most professional standard and at reasonable charges.
Had several quotes for the work, kitchen overhaul including knocking through a wall to extend the kitchen. Brownsgunner gave the most comprehensive and in depth quote! Mark and his team were very well organised and carried out all the work to a very high standard and were able to call on every tradesman we needed from electrician to plumbers and even got a carpet fitter and the taps and tiles at a far better price than we had been quoted. Can't recommend them highly enough.
Excellent service, good job done at great price. Finished in good time and no complaints what-so-ever. Would recommend Mark and his team to everyone.
Mark and Dave redecorated our three bed house during July 2014. We are extremely happy with the high quality painting they done. All the color and wood wook was done to a very high standard. We also had an under the stairs cupboard done, and Mark exceeded our expectations there. On his own initiative he made sure we maximised the space. We highly recommend Mark and team and will give him a ring without hesitation for our future decorating needs. 
If you have work required to be done to/on your property, I would recommend Brownsgunner without hesitation. Very professional workmanship by very friendly people. They did the work as agreed before hand, were careful, considerate and tidied up after themselves. We will certainly be using them again in the future when and where necessary.
We recently used the services of Brownsgunner to paint the exterior of our house. They did a fantastic job. Mark and his team were always punctual from the time of coming over to provide a quote and when carrying out the work. The price quoted was the price charged – there were no hidden costs and they even did a couple of things which were not originally quoted for eg fixing the loose wiring to our house, correcting our loose front door lock etc. Their attention to detail was exceptional such as removing the lock and letter box on our front door to ensure that the door was correctly sanded down before painting and removing the guttering to clean behind there and make good and each day everything was left tidy. Mark always kept me up to date with what work they were carrying out, what still needed to be done and how it was going to be done and all in layman’s terms! If you have children, you will feel very safe with Mark doing jobs around your home. We have an inquisitive 4 year old who was always asking questions and Mark was patient and kind to talk to him and even let my son do one of the small jobs with his toy tool box. Needless to say my son felt very happy that he had a part to play with the painting of our house. While Mark was doing our house, we discovered that he had a vast portfolio of jobs he had carried out and we have already booked him in next year to come and refurbish our entire bathroom complete with tiling, painting, furniture, fixtures, plumbing flooring etc. Over the next few years, we have a few jobs which require doing around our home. We will definitely be using Brownsgunner for each one of these as we know they will do the job correctly and to a very high standard
Exceptional service from this Polite, professional and friendly team. The quality of their work is exceptional. Reasonably priced, the team arrived on time each day. Work was completed within the time period given and at all times, they were extremely professional. They genuinely wanted to ensure we were happy with their work before they left the job. We've had several tradesmen on this property over the last 2 years. This company I would have back in a heartbeat. I highly recommend them to you as a professional company who take great pride in their work. You will NOT be disappointed.
