“Ensuite Bathroom Transformed”

Written on: 07/07/2015 by ColinCRichardson (1 review written)

Great job, couldn't be happier with the whole process from quote to completion. Not the easiest of jobs, I'm sure, with walls to be knocked down and re-plastered, and quite a bit of rewiring and plumbing, but the finished job with the wide open shower and marble tiles looks stunning. The staff were extremely helpful and clearly knew what they were doing. Can't talk more highly of our fitter who was always thinking one step ahead, discussing the issues that he could foresee in advance and… Read Full Review

“Great job - thank you!”

Written on: 30/04/2015 by CandSDavis (1 review written)

We have just had our bathroom completely gutted and converted to a shower room and at the same time an existing shower room transformed into a bathroom. The whole job from start to finish was carried out professionally and with high quality workmanship. We were given lots of helpful advice at the design stage, the job started on the date requested and was finished on target. The two fitters worked really hard, arriving at 8.00 am each day and leaving at about 5pm or later if they were in the… Read Full Review

“Kitchen Improvement feedback”

Written on: 18/04/2015 by IanBratton (1 review written)

I normally dread salesman coming to my house (as they typically overstay their welcome) however John arrived and was informative, knowledgeable and not at all pushy. John agreed to prepare some detailed plans and send them to us within a short period. The detailed plans arrived in the timescale agreed and were professionally presented. To be fair to Barras we changed our minds over the layout several times and on each occasion they were redesigned without any fuss and all the amended plans… Read Full Review

“Excellent,Quality Kitchen, Value for money”

Written on: 07/03/2015 by Hatch369 (1 review written)

The service was first class from getting the survey and quote to getting the kitchen fitted. Barras listened to what we wanted, then made suggestions on how our plans could be improved. Some of these suggestions we thought were great, and their years of experience shone through and decided to go with them, whilst others we realised would not fit into our lifestyles, so we stuck with original plans, which was fully understood. The staff were great and didn't mind when we kept changing our… Read Full Review

“Another great job”

Written on: 10/12/2014 by MiWhi (2 reviews written)

We had no hesitation in getting Barras in to replace our kitchen worktops, having seen the excellent work they did previously for us. The quality of service, from initial discussions to the installation, came up to the very highest standards of workmanship and time-keeping that we now associate with this company. The "extras" we'd mention are 1 Through attention to detail Barras discovered that the supplier of the worktops was likely to miss the deadline they had promised which would have… Read Full Review

“Kitchen Refubishment”

Written on: 08/02/2014

I am very pleased with my kitchen. It took 3 weeks to complete from start to finish but with all the work required the time passed very quickly. We decided on renwewing the kitchen in August 2013. The designer called out to our home at a convenient time, took the measurements, and a few days later we went to the shop to view the design on the computer, in all I think we must have changed the designs three or four times before I settled with the final design. I would like to thank all… Read Full Review

“USE THESE GUYS!”

Written on: 18/10/2013 by MiWhi (2 reviews written)

We have used several home improvement companies in Coventry, and Barras is undoubtedly one of the very best. At all times we felt that top priority at Barras was customer satisfaction ensured by very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff in the office and showroom, and highly skilled, reliable, honest and efficient tradesmen. Things happened when scheduled and tradesmen were receptive to suggestions for minor tweaks to the plans. We had no reservations about leaving tradesmen to get on… Read Full Review

“Fantastic Wetroom (2010) and Kitchen (2013)”

Written on: 29/09/2013 by AnotherCoventryDave (1 review written)

Our first encounter with Barras Home Improvements (BHI) was in 2010, when we wanted to overhaul our bathroom. We did the circuit of the usual D-I-Y stores and plumber’s merchants but just found some tiles that we liked. Working through bathroom suppliers in Coventry, we visited BHI’s showrooms. There we found no hard pressure selling but simply advice and suggestions. They patiently reassured us as we finally agreed to dispense with a bath and switch to a shower room, and their range of… Read Full Review

“Happy Customer Me!”

Written on: 30/07/2013 by wobble2 (1 review written)

A breath of fresh air after being lead from Electrolux website to Debenhams and around the houses by Debenhams Plus - their online site. Debenhams Plus is actually Buyitdirect and they sent us an old model completely different from anything on the Electrolux website. Eventually got a refund less transport costs. Barras checked the design with Electrolux for us and arranged direct delivery within the week. (In contrast Debenhams and Electrolux both failed even to answer emails and messages… Read Full Review

“HIGHLY RECOMMENDED”

Written on: 01/04/2013 by memusicmad (1 review written)

The team were faced with a very difficult and challenging job, due to the angles in my room and the walls not running true. They have managed to tile the room in such a way that they have minimised any wastage of tiles and I am left with a superb job. The fitters were very friendly, professional and trustworthy and I was happy to leave them in my home when I wasn't there. I even gave them a let to let themselves in and out as required. The office support, James Spencer was very accommodating… Read Full Review

“All Contact has been VERY Positive”

Written on: 01/11/2012

Found an oven (just what we were looking for). Good price and although we were many miles away (nearly 200), the contact and offers of service were very positive. The oven was ex-display with all manuals etc., but with no packaging, so they offered to send it in their own van. We decided to have it fitted by them, so they delivered it by their fitter, who installed it very carefully. All contacts were very nice people - a pleasure to do business with them. Would recommend… Read Full Review

“Great on price, great on service”

Written on: 14/09/2012

I ordered an AEG Freezer. They had the best price I could find. Barras were very easy to deal with a really personal level of service for an on-line company. The freezer I wanted was out of stock at AEG, but they gave me a 2-3 week delay. This proved very accurate and it was delivered on time exactly as arranged. They also gave me a 5 year warranty free of charge and £10 off my next purchase. A really excellent service… Read Full Review

“Atag gas/induction hob”

Written on: 30/08/2012 by oxfordpeeps (1 review written)

We chose Barras after spending a while looking around for the best price on this product. We weren't disappointed - telephone ordering was courteous and simple, James kept us informed about delivery dates, and the goods arrived on time exactly as advertised. This was "supply only" so we can't comment on the design and installation service from Barras, but based on this experience we would certainly deal with them again. Only four stars for "value for money" because this was a rather… Read Full Review

“Very Very Good service.”

Written on: 04/06/2012 by Roberte (1 review written)

I ordered an AEG washing machine and not only was it considerably cheaper than other appliance sites the service could not be faulted. Kept informed of a delivery date by Barras and then the delivery company gave me a four hour delivery slot with the driver phoning half an hour to arriving. Excellent all round sevice and cannot fault it on any level Would certainly recommend it to friends… Read Full Review

“New kitchen appliances”

Written on: 02/06/2012 by humphri1 (0 reviews written)

I bought a new AEG dishwasher,AEG designer hood and an AEG fridge freezer. Barras were cheapest by far for all three items and did not charge delivery to Scotland. Almost a miracle. I was kept informed at all times about possible delays but none occurred. Delivery was as expected with a courtesy call the next day to ensure I was completely happy with the service I had had. Barras were fantastic in handling my order, prompt efficient and courteous, a pleasure to do business with. Definitely a… Read Full Review
