Description  Installed my Bathroom furniture.

Feedback  Calistus and his team installed my bathroom furniture. I as not home when the installation was done, Calistus didn't have the tools to cut one of the lower boards and he only told me after the job was done that they was extra costs, would have preferred to be told in advance. Otherwise everything else was fine.

Cost  R 250 for a call out for a quote that never happened

Description  Absolutely nothing

Feedback  Paid the R250. A whatsup group was set up. We asked what time and day they would come. we heard nothing and the guy left the group. I was told I would be contacted within 48 hours. I had to phone Leroy Merlin 4 days later to find out what was happening. Disgusting service - don't make promises you can't keep.

Description  Fix a leakage

Feedback  After many failed attempts to repair a leakage, for a period of over 4 months of trial and error, he never fixed the problem, so much money wasted. He can't even honor his commitment to come and finish, nor be humble enough to recommend, as I suggested, someone who can actually fix the leakage.

Description  Isolated source of leak which was seeping through floor and then proceeded to fix it by replacing Valve and all piping around it.

Feedback  Calistus isolated the cause of my issue very quickly and also did the work well. Sadly, the replacement valve was faulty so the work had to be re-done. The faulty valve is not his fault. I have to commend Calistus for seeing the job through the end and coming on separate occasions to be sure the issue was truly resolved. Definitely keeping his number in my address book for future plumbing issues I may encounter.

Description  Plumbing in the kitchen

Feedback  Calistus had to do some plumbing work in my kitchen, replacing pipes and fixing the sink. It seemed as though he had done a good job but one the pipes started leaking and I asked him to come back to fix it and I tried for 2 weeks to get hold of him with no real luck. In the end I fixed the leak myself. The price he charged was very expensive for the work done and especially since the workmanship wasn't up to standard I'm not pleased with his service.
