Latest Reviews and Feedback

Mark assisted with fitting some air bricks in a rental property of mine. Tenant pleased with results. Mark offered additional advice on damp treatment and recommended products to use to keep on top of it. Honest and conscientious. Pleased with the job.

Mark and his son have recently completed works on our house. Mark was prompt to respond to my initial enquiry and survey the work that was required. He offered sound advice and was able to complete the work quickly before a minor damp problem became a bigger issue. We had a French drain dug, down pipe unblocked, unnecessary air bricks removed, repointing and well thought out, bespoke solution to a guttering issue. Great job, highly recommend both.

JW 12 20

Mark and his son recently applied PVCu to our unfinished exterior porch, replaced the overflowing gutter at the correct angle, and repaired and repainted the wooden frame of our garage door. They were prompt, professional, very friendly and easy to talk to, and offered us good advice, which was much appreciated. We will be asking them to do further work for us in the future and highly recommend them.

Mark Hart visited us about a damp problem.  No work needed but he gave us advice as to what to do to cure it . No charge, very helpful we shall certainly contact him again if needed.

Mark has recently completed a range of work on a terraced Victorian house. He used a variety of skills to deal with a number of jobs that needed fixing, including creating a French drain at the front, repairing and redecorating a stone windowsill, resealing window frames, cleaning guttering, sealing window frames, re-roofing a shed, taking away an old fence and repairing a crumbling path. He was always polite and punctual, both with me and the tenant in the house. I was very pleased with the work done and would not hesitate to use Mark again myself, or to recommend him to any friends needing an excellent skilled trades person.

JH 11 20

Very pleased indeed with every aspect of the work Mark has done. He has fixed the leaking gutter (where the neighbour's metric met my imperial). To deal with water soaking into the corner of my garage he extended and buried the drain downpipe and connected to a soakaway that he created. A really neat and professional job and I would most definitely recommend Mark's work.

JD 11 20

Mark and his son have just done an amazing job of repairing a brick pier at my property. They removed the damaged brick and fitted new matching bricks and repointed it all. I am so thrilled, it looks like new again. They were also such lovely, genuine people it really restores my faith in using trades.

VT 10 20

It was reassuring to have someone so knowledgeable, experienced, polite, friendly and reliable to do the repointing and some re-sealing our house needed as well as checking the gutters and soakaways. Mark and Jake did a sterling job at a good price and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the business.

DS 10 20

Mark recently replaced a crumbling brick, resealed a window and door and repointed around the back door. He and Jake were willing to work on a Saturday to fit us in. The work looks great. We used Mark years ago for minor roofing problems. He later worked on our fascia boards and guttering. We have always been pleased with the work completed and will continue to use him.

LD 09 20

Once again a great job done by Mark & Jake on an extension roof that had leaked during the recent downpours. Really tidy job and prompt service, why use anyone else for this type of work.

TM 09 20

Mark recently re-pointed around a window, where there had been damp issues. He did a great job, would definitely recommend him.

MM 09 20

Mark was extremely prompt in contacting me, cycling to meet me at my convenience. He and his son were extremely helpful, very honest and professional and no job was too small. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you Mark and Jake.

Mark has done a fantastic job repairing a stone windowsill and repointing. He went over and above and left everything clean and tidy. Would recommend.

NM 09 20

We are extremely happy with a number of jobs that Mark and his son have done for us to correct damp issues resolved by repointing and also creating a French drain. He is polite and respectful and has worked efficiently and tidily. I wouldn’t hesitate to ask him to do further work and would highly recommend his services.

LK 09 20

I have recently used Mark to complete some repointing work on my house including some work on my roof verge.This is the second time I have used Mark.The work on both occasions was completed very promptly after my initial contact and to a high standard. He is very thorough and professional. He also conducted some repair to my guttering. I would recommend him for work of this nature and would definitely use him again.

KA 09 20

Extremely pleased with the works recently carried out by Mark Hart Services which included clearing blocked gutters, resetting gutters and resealing leaking joints, replacing damaged bricks and repointing old brickwork, repairing rotting porch canopy and re-roofing, rebedding roof hip tiles and rebuilding a damaged garden brick wall. It was a pleasure to work with Mark and Jake who quoted a fair price for the job, were polite, reliable and took pride in their work which was finished to a high standard, leaving the job clean and tidy and ensuring that we were totally satisfied with works done. Would definitely recommend and use again.

SM 07 20

I’ve recently had some roofing work done and I cannot fault the quality and workmanship provided by Mark Hart Services. They installed for me new soffits, bargeboard and reset some loose roof tiles. These guys are professional, reliable and competitive providing a level of service rarely seen in this modern age. I cannot recommend Mark Hart Services enough for all types of roof work.

MC 07 20

Mark took care of a damp problem for my tenants and did the work promptly and at a reasonable price. Happy to recommend him to other readers.

PL 07 20

Mark very kindly returned to my home today Saturday 4th July 20; to fix a water Butt; post the excellent work he carried out with his Son Jake a few weeks ago on a damp issue;. Mark cycled over an hour to my home from another job! He is truly dedicated to his clientele and always smiling, no matter the job! He is.very skilled, always very professional & certainly knows his work inside out.. Thank you Mark.

TD 07 20

I immediately warmed to Mark Hart on meeting; due to his politeness and obvious great knowledge of his expertise and, he very kindly without charge made several site visits to my home regarding penetrating damp. Mark quoted very reasonably and thus he and his son Jake attended to the penetrating damp issue at my home several weeks ago. Both Mark and Jake were upbeat, professional and went 'the extra mile' to help me and, move 2 large pieces of furniture.! Certainly no easy job! The work of Mark and Jake is of sheer excellence, they are obvious experts in their field and very neat and tidy...they are simply a pleasure to know and I will not hesitate to ask their help in the future when needs be. Thank you so much Mark and Jake.

TD 07 20

We have been really delighted by the work Mark and Jake completed on our property - it was a real variety including repointing a whole wall, repairing pebble dash damaged by ivy, then re-painting the wall, replacing guttering, soffits and fascias across whole house. All work was completed professionally and they tidied up each day, clearly respecting our property. Always turned up when they said they would. They had some great ideas to make our soffits fit in better with the style of the property and we are really pleased with the end results - wholeheartedly recommended business.

AH 03 20

We had a hole in the external wall of our 1970's house where an old gas fire and flue was taken out. Mark managed to source matching bricks and did a neat tidy job filling it in so that the new work blends in very well. He and his son were courteous and friendly and the job was priced fairly.

MS 03 20

We noticed a leak coming through the coving in our dining room from our flat roof. I spoke to Mark, who came out the next day to assess and then fixed the next day, along with his son. He was extremely helpful, very honest and very professional. His quote from the assessment was very reasonable and they carried out the works as promised. I highly recommend Mark.

VK 12 19

ED 12 19

I had a leak issue in my rental flat caused by an exterior porch problem. Mark was very quick at coming back to me, friendly, polite and really helpful. I would certainly contact him again should any other roofing/exterior problems occur and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him to others.

LS 11 19

Mark was happy to come and oversee the work required and offer his expertise on the best way forward. I needed a section of brickwork to be bonded and some repointing of an area worn by an ongoing overflow of water. He was polite, efficient and obviously cared about the work undertaken. I’d have no hesitation in contacting him again if I required similar input.

PH 11 19

Another great job from Mark and Jake on our house. Repairing holes in the roof and boarding out the loft for us.  Always reliable and an excellent job.  Also honest advice as to what needs to be done and just as importantly what does not need to be done.

I had a requirement for someone to re-point our patio and also to make repairs to a brick wall: Mark called around to view the work and made some very practical suggestions as to how the work should be done. The work was carried out with a lot of care and attention, despite the weather being wet. Mark is both friendly and efficient, and we recommend him to future customers.

IP 08 17

Mark was one of the first to respond to my inquiry for re pointing my Victorian terrace and he turned up promptly to give me a quote. His quote came through quickly and was clearly set out for what I had asked for. He wasn't the cheapest but the most personable and quick to respond with quotes etc. His price was in the middle of the 3 quotes I had. He suggested that we wait for the Spring to do the work as better weather. We had a few delays due to his work load but Mark always responded to calls and texts. The work was completed last month and took a week to finish. Mark and his son Jake were polite and courteous at all times and happy to discuss the work along the way. They were clean and tidy and always brushed up at the end of the day. The re pointing is excellent and the work well finished. Two slate roof tiles on my extension did get damaged and they were quick to sort this out and make sure everything was finished as found.They also completed some extra roof work, some ridge tile replacement and some slipped tiles fixed. Great job thanks Mark and Jake. I would highly recommend them. 

RW 08 17

Friendly, efficient and reliable sums up my opinion of Mark and his excellent work. Mark did exactly what he said he would, was on time, to budget and was courteous, tidy and a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Thank you Mark and I heartily recommend Mark and his re-pointing service - Five stars!

SD 05 17

Mark and his son, Jake carried out some repairs to our roof and replaced guttering and facias to the front and back of the house. They also repaired and repointed some crumbling brickwork on our front porch. Mark responded to my initial enquiry very quickly and was very helpful in explaining what he would do. Their quote was very fair and all work carried out to a high standard. They also sourced and fixed another potential problem in the roof. They were clean and tidy in their work and a delight to have around. I would certainly have them to work for me again and would not hesitate in recommending them to others. 

JS 04 17

Mark and his Son did some roof repairs including repairing a rotten bargeboard and identifying the cause of damp in an upstairs bedroom. They have done a great job and were a pleasure to deal with. The task was a little more problematic than they first thought but they did not charge any more for this, they were honest and made sure that they did the job properly. They even repaired some of the broken filler which was allowing birds to access the roof space, something which I had not even been aware of. They did the work for a reasonable price and in good timing from my initial contact. I would happily recommend Mark to anyone looking for roofing work.

MM 03 17

We had a number of roof and guttering problems that needed fixing. Mark and his son Jake did a great job. They were friendly, professional and left everything clean and tidy. I would fully recommend them if you have any roofing work that needs doing.

MC 03 17

I recently had a new garage built (6m x 4.5m) but the roof was suffering leaks and excessive condensation within weeks of it being built which made it unusable. Mark and his son inspected the poor quality work and created a plan to resolve all the issues while re-using what was good about the current structure. They were polite, tidy, fairly priced, and timely in their work. The new roof is perfect not only no condensation or leaks but safer and very smart looking. I'm very pleased and highly recommend Mark.

TR 01 17

Great company. They were the first to respond to my contacts. Came exactly on time and diagnosed the problem, explained it to me clearly, offered a very fair price and fixed the tiling issue right then and there. They also unblocked a gutter and fixed another small potential issue free of charge. I will definitely use them again. They were very polite and friendly. Thank you.

TS 11 16

Mark and Jake did a repointing job for me in July. They spent about a week patiently and meticulously repointing many patio slabs. I was very pleased with their work, attitude and timeliness. Great work guys.

SL 07 16

We have had Mark and his son Jake do two jobs for us recently. They explained everything they were going to do and why. All works was done professionally and we are delighted.
