Recommendation for SPW Construction Services:
On 21st August, we read a recommendation for SPW Construction Services,
submitted by Jenny of Torrox.
As we required similar work to that carried out for Jenny, plus rejas & metal doors painted, we phoned Scott, who came , saw the work & quoted for it. We were happy with the price so agreed for him to do the work. However, after a couple of days, seeing how the team worked, the preparation of the work, the quality of the materials used & the results, we asked him for a quote to sort out the balustrades surrounding the terrace. Again the quote was more that acceptable They are completed & look ” fab “. Scott then quoted to paint 5metal doors, 2 exterior, 3 within the downstairs terrace. The additional work was requested based on the quality of work we had seen, which speaks for itself.
We would not hesitate to use SPW Construction Services again or to recommend
this efficient team to anybody.
The day SPW completed the work & before Scott left us, he said to us ( an elderly
couple living in the campo) ” If you are in trouble or need help- not building work – but anything, do not hesitate to call us. We live 5-6 minutes away from you & would come to your assistance.
This speaks multitude, as far as I am concerned, as to the nature of Scott.
A big thank you to Scott , his 2 assistants, but also to Jenny of Torrox, for posting her recommendation

Old Scam Returns: Beware of the fake water, gas, power and other inspectors who show up unannounced and request entry to your home. Hidralia, the company that manages the supply network in Estepona is alerting townspeople and residents further afield on the Costa del Sol, saying its workers do not enter people’s homes, either to repair leaks or make inspections.
However, it has had reports of people wearing similar clothing approaching householders. People should not let ‘water inspectors’, into their homes and should notify police, the statement concluded.
