    It seems someone had my last review deleted so I'll say it again: AVOID COLIN BARKER AT ALL COSTS. If I could give this man no stars I would. When he first came round to give me a quote he appeared to be very friendly and knowledgeable but he did a total botch job on the work I got him to do. He destroyed brickwork, some of his plastering failed after a few months and there's damp still showing on another wall.
    He also avoided my calls when I tried to ring him up and get it fixed. I had to use different phones just to get him to answer! When he did, all I got was excuses and tales of how he had hurt his knee and he had to go to hospital. Of course the guarantee he promised never materialised either. If you do decide to employ him then please please make sure you get his full contact details and get guarantees and receipts for everything BEFORE you pay him.
    He commented on my last review saying that he was angry that people can write reviews like this. Well I'm angry that people like him continue to rip homeowners off with shoddy work and false promises. It's now going to cost me double to get this work done properly. Satisfaction guaranteed? I don't think so!

    Colin was the cheapest quote I got but his work was awful. He came over as a nice man but when he finished the place was a mess. The plaster he put up started getting damp again after a few days and now its cracking and moves when you push it. A lump of it fell off the other day! I thought I could trust him to do a good job but I was wrong. I treid calling him but he never answers his phone and I can't afford to get someone else to finish it. I don't know what to do now, I'm left living in a house with damp and my health is suffering. People like him shouldn't be allowed to get away with this kind of thing.
