It really is quite nerve racking to move to a new area and have to choose contractors. In the case of Hodgson’s, there really isn’t any need to worry. I have met five of their staff, all of whom are extremely nice to deal with. From my very first meeting with Louise, I had full confidence that the deadlines would be met, and the work would be done to a very high standard. I was not disappointed.
