John, Jack and team did a restoration project on my 1760 cottage in Inkberrow. It’s not a listed building, but I wanted to restore it in a way appropriate to its heritage. The job involved stripping the old part of the cottage back to the original stone and brick; replastering; exposing and repointing a wonderful 260-year-old internal stone wall; and repointing external walls (all of the above being done with lime plaster and mortar) as well as rediscovering original flagstone and quarry tile floors that had been covered with concrete screed. My choice of Cootes was clear from the beginning - I’d had so many recommendations from friends in the village, all of which I can now confirm too. I wasn’t on site, nor am I a construction expert, so I needed a team I could trust to work with me as a partner. The workmanship was excellent but more importantly they cared about the building as much as I do. They are experienced in dealing with old properties, “engaged their brains” and consulted at every stage, were flexible enough to change course depending on what the old house threw at them and made proactive recommendations without just blindly doing what was on the job list. I am really happy with the work. Thank you.
