• We had a gable end that was in dire need of repair. We actually thought that sections of it would need rebuilding. But in the end Michael did a fantastic job of re-pointing it. It now looks like the day it was built. Michael is a real master craftsman who we would highly recommend.

  • Thanks to Trowelworks for bringing my old farm house back to life. A beautiful and sympathetic job inside and out. I've learned so much about my home in the process.

  • We would like to thank Michael for the excellent job he did for us over the summer. We have an 18th century sandstone cottage which required re-pointing we chose Trowelworks because of their expertise with lime mortars and we were not disappointed. They were obviously knowledgeable in restoration of period properties and showed our home great respect. In addition to this they were friendly, professional and competitively priced. The house looks wonderful we're thrilled with a great job. We would recommend Trowelworks to anyone without hesitation.

  • Claire and i are really pleased with both jobs you have done for us, stairs and landing and dinning room re-plastering, you have achieved an excellent finish both in Lime Plaster and Gypsum, and you and your team were a pleasure to have in our home, courteous and tidy. Thanks again Mike.

  • " Personal recommendation beats paid-for advertising every time. The father and son Higgins team were recommended to us for the replacement of the old cement render with a lime-based render on the exposed external wall of our house, 900 feet up in the Welsh hills. Mike and Harry were courteous, competent and tidy workers, and we have no hesitation in recommending them."

    John and Sue Hopkinson Llanfihangel 2016

  • "Trowelworks have given us the high standard of finish we expected. Mike and the team provide a courteous and professional service. They arrive promptly on the agreed days of work, are respectful of the home environment and clean up before they leave each day. A pleasure to have working in the house."

  • "I have recently renovated a 15th century house which had been empty for at least 20 years, and i awarded the contract for the lime plastering of the entire house to Trowelworks ( Michael Higgins) on recommendation. I have been absolutely delighted with the result. The difference between ordinary plaster and lime plaster is noteworthy, but the expertise in the work carried out on this project, has raised it to another level. It has provoked comment and praise from tradesmen, conservation people and ordinary visitors who have never given a thought to plaster in their lives before. I have many years experience of renovations, Trowelworks is totally professional, with the added benefit of respect and good manners shown by Mr Higgins and his team."

    Miss A.E.M.Jones, F.C.A. 2015

  • " Hi Mike (and Harry),Thank you, now that the scaffolding has come down we can really appreciate what a brilliant job you have done replacing the render on our cottage, we are only sorry we didn't have it done sooner when the cracks first began to appear. From the first time we met you it was obvious you really knew what you were talking about and we were so grateful for all the good advice you gave us when we knew absolutely nothing about plastering ! Thank you as well for always treating our home as our home not just a house to be fixed or a job to get done, both you and Harry were so respectful (even when i was wittering on about my precious plants) Please feel free to use us as a reference if prospective customers want to come and look at your work or want to chat to two very satisfied customers" Thanks again, best wishes,

  • "Trowelworks have completed two jobs for me in the past year, one large and one small, in both the results are excellent. The first entailed removing all the render from a large wall and then re-rendering it. They accomplished this in a clean, efficient and professional manner and although outside they ensured any mess was kept to a minimum and the site tidied each evening. The final results were excellent. A job well done which will last for many years. The second job was to cut out a piece of damaged plaster from inside the bedroom. This again was accomplished without any fuss and the finished result blends in perfectly with the existing plaster and since painting has become invisible! Just what I wanted. All in all I can heartily recommend Mike and the Guys from Trowelworks for any rendering or plastering work."

    Lea Leach 2012/13

  • " I can without hesitation recommend Trowelworks. It was clear from the outset that they were genuinely interested in the property and wanted to ensure that the finished product was sympathetic to the fabric and style of the Building. Mike and the team worked hard, arrived when they said they would and worked in a tidy manner. They were constructive and helpful at all times. The quality of the finished work is exceptional, thanks to their meticulous attention to detail and is a credit to them"

    Nancy Lees 2012/13

  • "Very Happy with the work done by Mike and his son. Punctual and professional, they had the job done to a high standard in half a day. Thanks for your work and would definitely recommend"

    A. McDowell March 2012

  • " Trowelworks provided great service, listened to what we wanted and provided honest advice. Their work was completed to the highest standard, we have used them on many occassions."

    Doug Daley 2011/12

  • " Regularly use Trowelworks, always pleased with the work, can't recommend enough. Infact their coming back in 2012 to do some more work for me...says it all!"

    Brian Parry 2011

  • "Trowelworks carried out a very thorough job on our 19th century stone house. They took pride in bringing out the character of the property using traditional materials and skills"

    David Evans & Jennifer Brake 2011

  • "Great work, reliable guys! Really impressed and pleased with the job, would definitely recommend Trowelworks"

    Jon Smith 2010/11

  • "Trowelworks completed a major lime plastering project for us, our property is a Georgian town house but its origins date back much further. We were concerned about the scale of this project and finding someone to complete it whilst being sympathetic to the character of the house. Trowelworks had the knowledge and skills to bring our property back to its former glory. We cannot recommend them highly enough."
