Steve was recommended to me by a friend and I have been really so happy to have found someone at last who is honest and does a really brilliant job. I have a house in Hanover in Brighton and Steve is doing all my renovations. I would recommend him most highly.

Lesley, Hanover

Steve has done several jobs for me over the last 18 months, ranging from small (putting a lock in a door) to large (fixing my roof). He has always been very polite, diligent, hard working and reliable. His costs are very reasonable and he has been very helpful with information and advice i.e. about materials or coming up with ideas for projects. He has also always tidied up afterwards, and treated me and my house with respect!

I recommend him to anyone looking for a high standard of work from a friendly and honest builder!

Steve did some excellent plastering work for me in two rooms in my flat. He is friendly, cheerful, punctual and easy to communicate with. He was also able to give advice on further building projects I have in mind. I will definitely be asking him to do more work for me in the future.

Karen, Kemptown

A friend recommended steve to me, and as a property renovator, I have used him on the last couple of projects. He turns up on time and gets on with the job, which is what I need in a plasterer. His pricing is fair, his work is of a high standard, and he is generally a good chap to have around. I would certainly recommend him and will continue to use him in the future.

Steve showed up on time, was efficient, paid attention to detail, did a great job and cleaned up after himself. He also charges reasonable rates. I am very pleased with the work he has done. having recently moved into a new place I have many jobs that need doing. I will definitely be asking Steve back to sort those out.

James, Hove

I was introduced to Steve Cansdale by a close friend who has known him for several years. I needed some help with small repairs in my flat and Steve came along to look at the list I had made and agreed to start on them the following week and we settled on a day.

He has been twice now and I am delighted with the standard of his work and attention to detail.

He has a very pleasant outgoing personality and I have no hesitation in recommending his work.

Jane, Hove

I can highly recommend Steve, who did a fantastic job of redecorating my bathroom. Steve was extremely helpful & always provided me with frequent updates whilst the work was in progress. Steve completed the work on time, within budget, to a high standard & with the minimum of stress. I was particularly impressed with Steve’s knowledge, work ethic and his courteous & friendly manner. Steve was nothing short of excellent & I will definitely be using his services again.

Sharon, Brighton

Steve has done various jobs in my house, including painting a room, making a step, cleaning out guttering, fixing my toilet, replastering my fireplace and he will shortly do some plumbing work. In other words he can turn his hand to most things.

  • I’ve found him to be very capable, doing a thorough job
  • He is cheerful and tactful and his charges are competitive
  • He leaves everything clean and tidy
  • He’s a nice man to have around
  • He doesn’t smoke
  • He isn’t constantly on the phone to his friends
  • He doesn’t play pop music
  • He doesn’t grumble about anything

I would unhesitatingly recommend Steve.
