Recommendation for Scott Wilson: Some time ago, I read a recommendation concerning SPW Construction Services in which the author said that she wished to “sing the praises of Scott Wilson,” the man who founded and runs the company.
We hired Scott in June of this year to help resolve a major rising damp problem in our home. The result was amazing and I wrote a very positive recommendation myself on how satisfied my wife and I were, concluding with: “What better way to express our satisfaction with Scott and his team would be to announce that we had hired them for another major job?”
This job was recently completed again to our entire satisfaction, so once again we can recommend the only builder we’ve encountered in our five years in Spain whose prices are right, is totally qualified, honest and a perfectionist. See Scott advertisement here on Digamextra and call him at: 622938440.

SPW Construction’s contact info is in the Sponsor’s Section at the bottom of every issue.
