    Very professional, lovely service and my windows have never looked so clean. It's nice to wake up in the morning to a brighter room!

    Gary carried out render cleaning for a client on my behalf, and was punctual, thorough and courteous at all times. Highly recommended!

    I had the stonework cleaned at the front of the house and the finished effect is really excellent, even better than I could have hoped as the stonework is quite delicate. Gary Elford was prompt and always courteous, and his prior advice … More was very helpful and reassuring. In all very good value and very pleased.

    Extremely happy with the results that took the
    … More colour back to original, but had almost no effect on the surface of the stone facade. He was also able to restore a statue that looked like a black and green lump, back to full glory.

    Elfords did a fantastic job, booked to clean the exterior of a rendered house (after we'd tried ourselves 4 days to clean 1/8 and hired a tower) should have booked professionals to start with!
    Would highly recommend to family and
    … More friend 😁
