“We had put up with a rather dilapidated kitchen, full of old units and cramped conditions, for years. Ray and his team transformed this dingy, depressing area into a light, bright, open space, making a modern, state-of-the art and streamlined kitchen in the process.
Throughout, Ray was not only an exemplary builder – knocking down walls, putting in new windows and evening floor levels – he was also a master-artist. His eye for sympathetic detail, and his vision for the most efficient use of the area, puts him in a class of his own as a craftsperson. In particular, Ray was able masterfully to conceal supporting beams, blend in old bricks and keep everything in tune with the house’s period features.
The kitchen, as it now is, accommodates technical gadgetry and smooth surfaces, making it a delight to eat in, relax in and generally experience. As overseer of the entire project, Ray consulted at every stage, advising on tiles, décor, lighting and woodwork, and showing himself a consummate professional.”

“We were looking to have a complete bathroom refurbishment and found Ray on Fixingrooms.com. He came to the house, took measurements and photos of the bathroom then sat with us and explained what could be done.
He called back again with drawings of the new layout and catalogues of bathrooms to choose from.
From start to finish, everything was of a very high standard and nothing was too much bother for Ray. If you want a first class job and a beautiful bathroom, then look no further than Ray Hesketh and Fixingrooms.com.”
Ronnie & Pat Baird, Belfast
We had a vision for our new bathrooms and cloakroom facilities. We also wanted to upgrade our bedroom flooring. Ray was very helpful in discussing our ideas and also creative in his design and layout of our rooms. He presented us with an excellent project plan, with realistic timeline which was fully met.
Ray was reliable, courteous and a tidy worker. He supervised all of the subcontract work, checking all work was carried out to his standard. His workmanship was excellent. His attention to detail made all the difference to a good job being completed.
We were delighted with the transformation of our bathrooms and had no problems throughout the project. We would have no hesitation in recommending Ray and the Fixingrooms team to anyone and would engage in any future work.

“I found Ray through his Fixingrooms website.
From the moment he met with myself and wife-to-be we had a good feeling that here was a guy who was honest and could be counted upon to do a professional job and see it right through to completion.
We were certainly not disappointed with our new kitchen he constructed. Built exactly how we wanted.
Ray also removed the old ensuite bathroom and what has replaced them can only be described as stunning. I can 100% recommend Ray for the high quality of workmanship, his professionalism and generally for being an all round nice guy!”
Steve McVarnock, Crumlin
“ Rays work is of an excellent standard.
Ray has some good ideas on what to do with an existing bathroom and he gave us some good advice. He is a perfectionist, and he spends a lot of time planning the job before he starts, so you will know exactly what will happen. He kept us very well informed and was reliable.
We would have no hesitation in recommending him to other customers, as we know the job will be done properly, and if we in the future ever need similar work done, we will certainly be giving Ray a call. ”
David and Claire Monteith Stranmillis, Belfast
Ray handled every aspect of our projects in the most professional manner, and ensured that due process in terms of planning and building control was adhered to whilst ensuring that other tradesmen were onsite as and when needed.
Despite the challenges associated with any project, he never let us down completing every aspect of every job to the highest standard. We did not think twice about asking him to undertake further work for us and continue to call on him for advice. We would have no hesitation in recommending Ray to others. “

“Ray paid great attention to detail leaving an excellent finish. They discussed our plans with us and provided useful advice on materials and fittings.
We found an impressive customer service including a post-completion visit to ensure our complete customer satisfaction. Our plans were well discussed beforehand with them to ensure complete understanding on both sides. We would definitely recommend Ray and Fixingrooms and call upon their services again. It was a pleasure to find workmen with such a good attitude and who pay such attention to detail.”
