Under his company name of Charleswood Property Developments, Mark Wood project manages a team of carefully chosen labourers and craftsmen (plumber, electrician, bricklayer, plasterer, joiner, decorator, etc.). The company’s work is of an excellent standard, as I discovered when they worked on my house over a period of about 5 weeks in the spring. Any problems are quickly sorted out with Mark, a totally honest person who genuinely cares about customer satisfaction. It’s wonderful to have one person to speak to about any aspect of the job. I have no hesitation in recommending Charleswood.
