John Nicoll trained as a joiner and carpenter in St Andrew's, Fife. For over 30 years, he has been operating in the London area - setting up 5 Ways Carpentry 10 years ago.

He takes personal responsibility for his teams and his jobs and personal references are available in abundance. His Scottish attitude results in a no-nonsense approach and he takes personal pride in leaving all his building sites clean and dust free - wherever possible!

No fuss, no mess, no hidden costs - one customer's father described John's transparent invoicing policy as the best builder's invoice he had seen in 40 years in the property industry.

Great work, trustworthy and professional

John replaced the wooden balcony on my Edwardian flat, it looks gorgeous and is the envy of all my neighbours! Would totally recommend working with John, he sticks to budget and timescales and does a really great, professional job.

I'll definitely want to use John for further work at my home. He gave good advice and kept a close eye on the work which was done to a good standard with minimal disruption following a detailed and accurate estimate.

Fixed door after hinges broke
Customer Service
I called John 24 hours ago as the hinges on my very old bedroom door broke. John asked me to purchase the hinges and he'd pop by to fit them. I didn't get quite the right ones, but John worked with them and did a great job. Very reasonable and I'm glad I called him.

Ticked every box
Customer Service
John put right some doors we previously had installed. He was professional in all aspects of his work. He delivered to time, cost, and scope; we couldn't have been more pleased and will definitely be looking to re-engage him. Thank you John, and thank you Which?

Very pleased
Customer Service
In February 2013 we needed a complete house refurbishment, new central heating system put in and a new stair case, and John Nicoll did an excellent job. As my wife was expecting soon, all work was completed swiftly and I was very pleased with the new staircase which involved a lot of work. We also had new electrics in the front of the house and a new downstairs toilet. I was pleased with all of the work. Definitely recommended!
