Jim Coleman, Polmont said on 01/08/2022:
First time used Kevin and would do so again. Fairly simple job as in putting up kitchen unit and planing a couple of doors but came when he said he would and very personable so would recommend.

Lynn Hunter, Grangemouth said on 13/05/2022:
Complete bathroom refit at one of my rentals. The boys did a fantastic job at a very competitive price once again.

Lesley McIntyre, Grangemouth said on 24/04/2022:
Kevin and his son came to fit new internal doors, replace door facings, skirtings and also replace a loft ladder and hatch.  They arrived on Tuesday morning and set to work straight away. They both worked away only stopping for their lunch, and by Friday all 10 doors etc and loft ladder were fitted.  The standard of their work was 1st class, so much so they are coming back to replace skirting in my living room. Would recommend this company 100%.

Vicky, Polmont said on 31/10/2021:

The personal door to my garage was stuck due to the winter damp. Through Trustys I got K M Joiners details and I telephoned Kevin about 10 am. He agreed to have a look at the job later in the afternoon. He arrived about 4.00 pm, had a look and said he could do the necessary there and then. Within the hour the door had been planed, the door furniture cleaned and lubricated, and the site cleaned up. Kevin made a very reasonable charge. for a very professional job.

Kevin McElroy (KM Joinery) has completed yet another job for me, small though it may have been, in his usual professional, thorough and efficient manner with the minimum of fuss.  Kevin came out to assess the required work within a day of my request – and at the time he said, a work ethic that is always appreciated!  He also literally “went the extra mile” in going to get a part for the job that he didn’t have straightaway, after quickly identifying the solution to a problem that he wasn’t previously aware of so that he could finish the job on the same day.

Kevin was part of the team of Trustys who recently ripped out the old wet room in one of my rentals and replaced it with a beautiful new shower room.  Completely painless process from start to finish.  Nothing was a problem.  Left it immaculate and finished ahead of schedule.  Once again, a huge thank you to Kevin and team for another superb job. 😊
