Local Conversations in Coles Green

Kitchen Fitter

Recommendations in Chattisham

SuffolkBoy1956
Can anyone recommend a kitchen fitter to replace an existing kitchen. We need someone that can manage the whole caboodle - fitting, flooring, plastering, electricals etc. Preferably local to Capel St Mary.
