~ Louise

Martin completed some structural repairs that I was very pleased with. They were done to a very good standard and have corrected the problems we had. He also identified that the metal fire escape had been badly installed and was causing damage to both my property and my neighbours. This he corrected, also to a high standard of workmanship.

~ Nick

We have no hesitation in recommending Martin Hillstead. His work is of the highest standard. He came to completely refurbish our kitchen – putting in a new window, new floor, ceiling, worktops, wiring and new kitchen units. We were very impressed by the professionalism and care that he took. Indeed, he said that he aims to take as much care on a client's room as he would on his own house – and so he does. We were very pleased with our kitchen when it was all finished – it went from a dark and dingy room to one that was full of light and texture and was much admired by our friends.

~ Ian & Julie

When it comes to structural work, and where attention to detail is required, Martin is your man. You cannot fault his knowledge or the passion for his trade. Very reliable and very informative. Great job.

~ Mr M

We used Steadfast Structural Engineering Services Ltd in February 2017 to carry out external repair work to my property and garage. Martin, (Managing Director) spent some considerable time with us explaining the work that was needed and had some suggestions as to what we should do. He followed this up with an itemized quotation and began work. He worked within the agreed time frame and kept up good communication with us as to the progress of the jobs. Martin turned up early, worked efficiently, and always cleaned up afterward. The work he did was to a very high standard and were very happy with what he did. We would have no hesitation in recommending this company and will use them again in the future.

~ Mr & Mrs C. G

Martin, Thank you for the report. I am happy with the content. I shall forward this to my Insurers and await their reply. I shall let you know the outcome. Many thanks to you for such a prompt, helpful, and courteous service. Kind regards

~ David H

I'm really impressed by the new fence and the standard of workmanship. Excellent job! Pity you don't live closer to Harrogate. We'd recommend you for some work in Yorkshire. I am away in Manchester today so will pay the balance tomorrow when back in Harrogate. Best regards
