One of the biggest stresses of being part of a renovation is trying to pick skilled workers. We're repeatedly asked in Relics who we recommend for various jobs. Our houses, rightly, mean so much and the thought of all our hard-earned cash being wasted on a rip-off merchant is painful.
Yes, there's the Yellow Pages, and various other directories that list local trades people but wouldn't it be great if there was a list that you could know was full of tried and trusted sources?
In Relics of Witney, we have years and years of experience of working with the very best of the best. Here is the pick of our favourites. These are people and companies that we have worked with over a long time, who we have found to be tirelessly hard-working, skilled and trustworthy.
