  • "Cooper Surfacing did an excellent job on surfacing The Croft School’s car park. They delivered an excellent level of service on all aspects of work. The pre-sales visits were precise and accurate, Cooper Surfacing offered the best solution to our drainage issues and at a highly competitive price. The work was carried out to a high standard within the specified timeline. I can’t comment on the aftercare service, as we had no need to ask for any extra work, as the job was so good originally. I would very happily recommend Cooper Surfacing."
