Andrew Potter

Plumbing and decorating

We've used M J Burt for several jobs, plumbing and decorating, and have always been very happy with the service provided both at home and in our rental property. Martin and Lewis are polite, take care of our home when they're here, and their work is always completed to an excellent standard. The business is run professionally and they're a pleasure to deal with.

Robert Greenberg

Chimney repointing

Great local company which I've used on several occasions. Recently had the chimney repointed, all works completed on time and to a high standard. Nice & friendly and would thoroughly recommend.


Refurbishment and decorating

Absolutely fantastic service repairing and painting our junior doctor rest facilities (bedrooms and bathrooms) at Poole Hospital on the doctors accommodation floor. Martin was so obliging, his team were extremely friendly and the work they produced was outstanding given the busy corridor in which they had to work. I would thoroughly recommend Martin and his team - no job is too small and their attention to detail is superb. We are so grateful that they were able to make our vision a reality.

Laura Croucher, Poole Hospital 

External house repair

Reliable, courteous, helpful, efficient and most professional. Wouldn't hesitate to use again M J Property Maintenance in the future should the need arise.

Agnes Bennett, Poole 

Balcony repair

Very delighted with the work done to my balcony. I moved recently and inherited a rotten balcony covered with fake grass. I now have a repaired balcony covered with lovely decking. They worked in freezing weather with no complaints! Work started and finished on time.

Lynne Grace

Boiler work

I have used  M J Burt Property Maintenance LTD for my plumbing needs for 8 yrs and have always felt pleased with the service provided. Lewis who is my plumber is very pleasant, clean and tidy with his work. I cannot say anything negative.

Anneliese Winslade, Poole 

Redecorate hallway

Martin and his team came to redecorate the hallway, stairs and landing at the beginning of March 2019. They were genuinely lovely people who I was completely at ease with in my home. They did an excellent job, were clean and tidy and the work completed was of a very high standard. I even asked Martin if they could source and fix a new bit of skirting board in the hallway at the last minute - which was no problem at all. The quote for the work was competitive and had no hidden extras and they completed the work earlier than I expected. Overall we were really pleased with them and would not hesitate in recommending them or having them back to help us with other jobs.

Seal leak

The work was to seal leak between window frame & wall. Work was done to good standard, completed on time and to quotation. Martin was at all times informative, helpful & polite. I would have no hesitation of using him again or giving high recommendation.

Boiler service and annual gas safety check

Lewis at M J Burt has been servicing our boiler and doing our annual gas safety check for the last 6 or so years. Lewis has always been punctual, pleasant and professional. He has been available when other plumbers have let us down. I would not hesitate in recommending his service to others. Keep up the good work.

Dudley Poole

Once again M J Burt applied themselves over and above what is required with their promptness and attention to detail. Thank you

Stuart Cooper

Gas maintenance

As a landlord I have used M J Burt for a number of years for gas maintenance and safety certificates. They are reliable, trustworthy and great value. I would highly recommend.

Mat Rawlings

Interior and exterior decorating

Claudio has done a fantastic job. The wall we wanted painted originally had 2 supports for kayaks stuck to it. When we removed them from the wall it left lots of holes and was a complete mess. Claudio made it good as new! You wouldn't even know! He was courteous, professional but above all, a warm and friendly person to have in the house. I would thoroughly recommend this company.

Mr & Mrs Brereton, Bournemouth

Outside painting of bungalow

The work carried out was of excellent standard and more than I expected. The men doing the work cleared up at the end of the day and left the site clean and tidy.

Mrs Ashton, Lychett Matravers, Poole

Very professional and very pleased with work done.

Mr Foote, Oakdale, Poole

New water softener fitted

They are very busy so a little delay in getting started, but once started he was very quick and efficient with a lot of good advice. He didn't just fit the water softener, he also improved the pipework in and out of the softener. The whole unit is much neater and works well and the pipework is much tidier now.

Mr Foster, Poole

Complete internal redecoration

Their work was of the highest order and I would recommend them wholeheartedly.

Mr Holloway, Canford Cliffs, Poole

A variety of trades were assembled and well co-ordinated. Work was completed to high standard. Used Martin Burt before and will definitely use again.

Excellent job! Very efficient, good planning, extremely tidy clearing up and vacuuming during and after job completion. I was given the recommendation and now it's my turn, I would definitely recommend M J Burt.

Excellent service, very tidy and courteous

Mr Patterson Bournemouth

Replaced shower and serviced boiler

Excellent work, we are very pleased with the new shower. Feel very fortunate to have found a plumber who turns up when he says he will (or lets me know) and then tidies up afterwards!

Mrs Mantle

New door handles fitted and large amount of painting work both inside and out

The work was completed to a high standard and to our complete satisfaction. The men involved were trustworthy and tidy and disruption was kept to a minimum.

Mr Winborn, Bournemouth

Complete internal redecoration and refurbishment of a 3 storey townhouse

From the first day until the last Martin Burt and his team were without exception punctual, polite, clean and considerate and that was just in their attitude and approach, added to that was the very high standard of workmanship that was produced and the quality of materials used. Nothing was ever an issue or too much trouble even on those occasions when I was inclined to change my mind about paint colours etc, patience and a sense of humour always prevailed!! All that at really competitive rates too, I can highly recommend them.

Mrs Redford, Poole

Boiler repair

I asked Lewis to look at my boiler which had rumbled for 2 months, and a previous heating engineer had been unable to diagnose. He rapidly found the problem and fixed it with minimal fuss, and for a reasonable price. Very nice guy and I will use his company again.
