Our Testimonials

Outstanding workmanship (Tracey Tait)

Following major building work we’ve been left with lots of joinery to do, some of it quite tricky! Ray came and looked at the work, was incredibly helpful and professional when assessing the jobs that need doing and very positive about getting them completed.

The day Ray was at the house he arrived bright and early, incredibly well prepared and set to work. With diligence and precision Ray crafted a new newel post for the stairs, hung doors and shelved out cupboards. We honestly couldn’t be happier with all of the work and very much look forward to Ray coming back to finish the numerous jobs which we have on our list for him!

Highly recommended, 5 stars!!!

Excellent service and standard of work (Mandy Stapleton)

Ray was recommend to us as we were looking to have extra storage built into our bedroom but was unsure what we could do. Ray offered us a very professional service resulting in him designing and building a built in wardrobe and also changing an existing wardrobe so to get a sleek and professional finish. We also had shelving put into a very awkward alcove.

As we were so impressed with the work standards Ray had provided us with Ray also took on repairs that a previous “joiner” had bodged, removing skirting boards and flooring in the hall and relaying and replacing to a high standard, he also built and fitted a new back gate to replace a very poorly fitted gate that offered no security or privacy.

Ray was reliable and nothing was a bother. I would highly recommend him and will be the only joiner to do any work in our home from now on.

Thanks Ray.

New fencing (Paul Coates)

Ray built a sixty foot fence on my property the quality of which was excellent and his attention to detail was more than i expected. Whilst working for me Ray was well mannered and polite with my neighbour and myself, always leaving the work area clean and tidy. Above all else he was honest and trustworthy, the price he quoted was the price I paid even though Ray had to purchase some extra materials to complete the job. Recommended

Exceptional work (Albert and Vera Peacock)

Ray Cook Carpentry and Joinery have just fitted our new kitchen, which is beautiful and very professionally done. We are over the moon with it, from the units, flooring tiling etc. everything is perfect.

Ray also fitted UPVC windows in our kitchen, lowered the ceiling and fitted laminate flooring.

Ray has some very good ideas, which are very useful, he also has a great skill and expertise which are second to none.

Always on time, very friendly and hardworking. Wouldn’t look anywhere else to have work done, they are highly recommended by us no problem!

Thank you Ray we are very happy with everything you have done for us.

Very good work (Mrs Suggett)

Ray came promptly when he said he would. He worked hard with a cheerful manner, fitted new doors and other jobs for us. He ensured that the work was a high standard and completed as we wanted. He tidied up afterwards and checked that we were satisfied. I am happy to recommend him.

Fabulous new kitchen (Bev Dutchburn)

Ray Cook carpentry and joinery have just finished fitting our new kitchen. We are delighted with the finished product. Installed to a very high standard. Ray and Gary always arrived on time and worked long hours to finish the kitchen in one week. They also laid the new flooring. As with all old properties there were a few problems along the way but Ray managed to solve these without any trouble. Big thank you to Ray. Would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone. Mr and Mrs Dutchburn.

Quality workmanship (Gill Petty)

We had Ray build us a new fence in our back garden, the quality of his work is excellent he really pays attention to detail.

We were so impressed with the fence that we had done that we have asked Ray to come back to build and fit a new gate to the side of our house. Ray is very competitively priced and we would not hesitate in recommending his services.

Two new doors - Fantastic job! (Katie Williamson)

Ray came he was very punctual, honest and organised. He made an excellent job in hanging two new doors, his attention to detail was fantastic and he ensured the job was finished to an impeccable standard. He kept us informed throughout the day on how the job was progressing and never made a decision without consulting us first (even down to where I would like the door handle to be situated). Ray will be completing any further joinery jobs for me in the future and I could not recommend him enough. Katie

Sliding wardrobe doors (Mark Boanson)

Ray came at 8.00 every day and finished at 6.00, he cleaned up every night before he left and was very friendly. Great job, we will certainly be using Ray again 100%.

Fencing (Sarah Hughs)

Our fence blew down in the recent wind. I phoned Ray and he came to look at the job the same day. The fence he built for us is very sturdy and it won’t be falling over again! Ray and his workmate were very friendly and polite, he kept us informed about what he was doing all the way along, turned up on time and worked very hard. Highly recommended. Thanks! (He likes his tea milky!)

Thank you (Pat Smedley)

Well Ray I have to say big thank you for the doors you hung for me I’m like the cat that got the cream I would recommend you every time and you did a good job cleaning up after yourself thanks again

Gate & Fence (Michaela Fraser)

Wow. Outstanding workmanship, Treated wood and thick .Love the style of my gate & fence with the curve appeal . Will use in the future and recommend to friends and family. Thanks Ray

Excellent Workmanship (Dave Petty)

Ray had previously done our fence in our back garden and we got him back to make and fit gates to the side of our house, which we are really pleased with.

We were having a patio laid at the time he was at our property, which had been laid incorrectly. Ray took time out of his schedule to find someone else to put the work right. We are extremely pleased with the finished job. We couldn’t recommend him enough.

New Roof Install (Marjorie Todd)

We got Ray in to put a new roof on our house, there were 24 trusses that needed to be craned, tied and strapped to the drawing specification. We were under a lot of pressure to get the roof on in two days so Ray worked Saturday and Sunday to achieve this.

We are that happy with the work that was carried out that we are using Ray Cook Carpentry and Joinery to undertake all the internal work.

Quality finish (Denise Pattinson)

We got Ray Cook Carpentry and Joinery in after the last joiner, if you can call him that made a mess of our doors and skirting boards.

Ray managed to sort some of the doors but unfortunately had to replace a couple. His approach was very professional and his work is second to none, we would certainly recommend Ray if you want a quality finish.

Thanks Ray.

Outstanding work (Mrs Swainston)

Ray has just renewed a pitched roof on our garage, we are very pleased with his workmanship. It’s actually nice to have a tradesman that we can trust to do the job properly.

We went away for the night and left Ray our house keys, we normally wouldn’t do that, but went felt very comfortable leaving him to lock up and set our alarm.

We would highly recommend to anybody looking to have any work done. Thank you Ray :-)

Very good job done (Tony Watson)

Very outstanding craftsman very satisfied with the work done, Ray is a very quality minded worker.

New floor (Robert Hall)

Ray Cook Carpentry and Joinery laid a new floor for us, Ray also put new skirting board on which we are very pleased with.

Ray has some very good ideas and won’t cut corners to save time, his attention to detail is second to none, If your looking for a top quality job then we can’t recommend Ray enough.

Many thanks.

Very satisfied (Elizabeth Walker)

Ray put a price in to lay some flooring for us, the price seemed very reasonable. We where desperate to get the flooring done as soon as possible before we went on holiday, Ray went out of his way to help us and worked until late on a night to get the job finished.

We wouldn’t look anywhere else now to get any work done, he was very professional and on time which is very rare these days. If you looking to get any work done we can’t recommend Ray Cook Carpentry and Joinery enough!

Good value for money (Donna Ferris)

I got Ray in to alter some doors that had been badly hung. Ray was here for half a day and his price was very reasonable compared to others, I will certainly recommend him to friends and family looking to have work done. If you’re looking for a trustworthy and professional tradesman look no further.

Job well done (Barry Foster)

We got Ray in to do some repairs to our floor joists, Ray was recommended by a friend after we were let down by another Joiner. I must say that his approach was very professional and we are delighted with the work carried out. We will certainly be using him again.

Thanks again.

Came highly recommended (Sue Porter)

We are very happy with Ray’s work, we would definitely use him again. Originally we had another company to do our decking and some other jobs around the house, unfortunately we asked them to leave due to poor workmanship. Ray came and stripped the decking and started from the beginning, I must say that we are very happy with it now and would have no problems with recommending him to other people.

Thanks for a great job!

Reliable service (Dave Swinbank)

We got this company in to do our fence and some decking, they were always on time and very friendly. We had an idea of what we wanted the decking to look like but Ray suggested some other ideas which we went with.

I would have no issues with using this company again in the future.

Professional approach and service. (Marilyn Fowler)

We found Ray Cook Carpentry and Joinery to be very professional. We had the misfortune to wake up one morning to a flood. A good friend recommended this company so we contacted them. They came out the same day to take a look, we also got another quote to compare, I must state that Rays quote was significantly cheaper than the other company. We had to get the walls plastered and the floor needed re levelling before the wooden floor could be laid. I must say they did a fantastic job. I will definitely recommend this company.

Many thanks.

Excellent (Holly McMichael)

Great work done by Ray, turns up ready to work bright and early, highly recommend him to anyone looking to get a good job done, we will be having him back for further wo

Double doors (Mark Hutchinson)

From the first visit to quote through to completion of the doors Ray showed a top level of professionalism. Workmanship second to none, if you are looking for a carpenter/joiner read these reviews. I would be happy to recommend to anyone.

Dining room transformed (Sara Wray)

Ray has built us some wonderful floating MDF shelves in our dining room alcoves. We found him really easy to work with and appreciated his experienced eye and recommendations. Would definitely recommend!

Doors a plenty (Martin Miller)

I have a great deal of work going on right now and I needed a quality, dependable joiner to tackle the task. Ray cook came, saw and conquered. The job dished a few problems out but they were tackled with ease and the whole experience was completed ahead of schedule with his team mate. Job well done and the list of new work is being prepared. 100% satisfied. Cheers.

Fitted Wardrobes (Dawn Mather)

The walls, ceiling an floor were all out. A new frame was fitted an doors then fitted. Ray did a brilliant job. The wardrobes look fantastic. A great job done Ray. Thank you very much. Will be in touch when we are ready for new doors to be fitted downstairs. Highly recommended

New kitchen (Amanda Criddle)

Another brilliant job done by Ray and his team! Fitted a new kitchen which was a bigger job then expected after ripping the old one out but they got it done and we couldn’t be happier with the results. We will defiently be using him again and would recommend to everyone :)

Diane’s doors (Diane Wood)

At last we have doors that actually close. They have been beautifully fitted and we are delighted with the finished result. Can’t wait for the other six to be fitted. A happy customer.

We cannot recommend Ray highly enough (Sophie Elizabeth)

We cannot recommend Ray highly enough! We have recently had a new fence built which looks fantastic. Ray pays attention to detail and his work is of an extremely high standard. Everything was left clean and tidy too (which is always very much appreciated!) Thank you for your hard work.

Highly recommended (Ian Sturrock)

Ray has recently fitted wardrobes into alcoves in our bedroom. He has posted the pictures. Excellent workmanship , great quality and good price. Will use again and recommend.

Meticulous care and attention to detail (Debra Farrell)

From the minute Ray arrived, first thing on a Bank Holiday, he worked on our Ensuite with meticulous care and attention to detail. I cannot recommend Ray Cook Joinery enough. Ray knew exactly what I was trying to achieve and came up with ideas to improve the original design. Ray works on your project as though it was in his own home. Ray has a work ethic that is seldom found today. If you have to wait 12 months for Ray, it will be worth it.

Beyond pleased (Corrine Brown)

Beyond pleased with the shelves I've had built into my dining room alcoves. I would recommend Ray to anyone looking for high quality workmanship. Thanks again!

Ray came out to do some fence work in my back and front garden. He was very professional in his manner and work. I'm extremely pleased with the job he did. His attention to detail is second to non. I will be getting him back again to do some more work for me soon. I highly recommend him to anyone needing a joiner.

Excellent at his job (Amanda Criddle)

I would highly recommend ray he is excellent at his job! He's fitted double doors in our living/dining room which are amazing! He fitted our new kitchen from scratch, even after finding problems under the old kitchen he still got the job done and the kitchen looks amazing! he is defiently a guy that won't leave a job until he is 100% happy with it.
