I first became a client of David Frith some 16 years ago when I was trying to arrange installation of portable gas heating in my then terrace at Paddington.
The Gas Company representative who came to advise on the possibilities, shook his head at the likelihood of being able to extend the gas service to an important part of the rear living area, because it would involve finding a route under multi layers of concrete in a side courtyard.
Finally he said I only know of one fellow who might be able to do it and he gave me David’s name
David, after a long morning and not knowing until the very last moment whether his efforts would work, achieved it.
In the ensuing years he has done many and varied jobs for me and for each of my 3 children, on a number of properties.
Another memorable job was his achievement in putting in a new and separate sewer line at Paddington in circumstances where the Board’s sewer was at twice the depth shown on plans and involved digging through solid sandstone.
Whatever the problem we have presented David with, he has found a good and speedy solution.
