I called Dave on a Thusday and he came around on a Sunday to see the work we wanted doing. Despite being busy with other jobs, he offered to come round the following Saturday as we had a tight deadline to get work done. He called in the week to suggest he could bring his brother Mickey on the day to get twice the work done in the same time. Dave and Mickey are as friendly, professional and ultra-efficient as they come and we didn't think twice about leaving them in the house to get on with the work while we went out for most of the day. Between them, they stripped and re-hung an outside door, fitted light switches, a bathroom cabinet, a large and heavy hall mirror, filled and painted a tired, wooden bathroom floor and re-attached bathroom cupboard doors, amongst other things. Nothing phased them, they picked up all the materials at the start of the day and gave me a receipt and were generally a pleasure to have around. The standard and finish of all work was of as a good a standard as i've known and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

Sam did a tricky restoration job on my staircase, which had been mutilated by the previous owner, and I was completely bowled over by the standard of his work. His price was very reasonable, he was quick, and to be honest I couldn't have wished for better. I'd recommend Sam to anyone.

A fast, professional service. Some problems with contacting, receiving estimate and invoice(not all materials itemised) but the initial inspection and subsequent work was to a high standard. I would use them again

Knowing Dave from various previous jobs he has done for me, I asked him and his brother Mickey to rennovate my old and boring bathroom. There were a lot of jobs involved: retiling, installing 5 new led downlights, moving position of heated tower rail, fitting new toilet, tap, shower mixer and shower screen. Since we only have 1 bathroom in the flat, Dave and Micky planned very carefully to make sure the job did not affect our daily routines. Beside, they kept the whole flat tidy and clean and communicated to me on a daily basis to update on progress as well as giving advice on tricky situation. I absolutely love the new bathroom and will ask them to fit the new kitchen next year. If you want to have a proper job done, Dave and Micky are the ones to go for!

Bruce Ruggles and his team carried out extensive work on our house through summer/autumn of 2014, including replacement of a flat roof with a pitched roof, associated structural work, reconstituting the two rooms beneath the roof, rewiring, bathroom refurbishment, redecorating, ceiling lining, flooring repairs and improvements, and carport renovation. I was impressed with the positive input at meetings with the structural engineer and with the organisation of this aspect of the work. Particular features were tackled, including intersection with some varying pitch in the existing main roof, and making good, virtually invisibly, to externally insulated walls. The standard of finish in the bathroom was also very good and, overall, we were impressed with the quality of the work. There was good communication and positive input throughout (and tidying up).

Tony West treated some rising damp in our house in October this year. I was pleased with the work carried out. Experienced, friendly and value for money service, and left the house clean and tidy after work completed.

In short, Matt provided a good, efficient, punctual service for a very reasonable price. And in Central London! Matt arranged to come out for the initial quote at a time which was most convenient for me (at 08:30, before I left for work). He was bang on time, as were his workers who came out to do the actual job later. His recommendation for the new boiler has left me very happy, and does just the job I wanted it to. I just had Matt out again to quote for another job. I was hoping to get the job done quickly, and when Matt said he wasn't available, I did try two other builders first. Since one builder answered both my calls but never called back, and the other builder didn't return my call at all (these builders were recommended by an estate agent who will be managing the rental of my property) I decided to wait a little longer and get Matt in, because I know he is reliable and reasonably priced. Matt tells me that he got into the building trade when he had a shocking experience himself: most builders start in the industry and have little or no project management experience. Matt started with the management side and now runs his own building firm. It really shows in the customer service.

Andy refurbished a flat I bought with my partner Rosy in Autumn 2014. It involved pulling down walls, re-plastering, pulling out and replacing the kitchen and the bathroom with bespoke units, pulling up and replacing flooring throughout, re-decorating throughout, adding in new cupboards, shelving, insulation, running pipework, and re-working the electrics. Andy got the job done to a high quality at a good price, and would have been comfortably on time had we not added things to the job, which he took in his stride. He was quite happy to do things as we asked for them to be done, even when they were a bit unconventional. He had a great team working for him, especially his carpenter Gary, and his decorator Darren, who did things just as we asked for them to be done. They were also very good with the neighbours, and kept the place tidy and clean. We would definitely use Andy again.

We have been very pleased with trader s and I would not hesitate to recommend their service. Jujhar was very patient and professional with us all the way along understanding our priorities clearly. They have repaired a crumbling outside wall, re-built our front door way (wood work, plastering, door fitting), re-built our window cills and re-paint our external windows. I will definitely use their service again. Laurent and family

Used Dubel for a major house refurbishment. They carried out all the flooring work, carpentry (apart from our bedroom cupboards - see BWS review for that), wall removal, bathroom and kitchen fit-out. Overall, an excellent quality of work. Richard and Maik are very nice people to deal with, and have real attention to detail. Occasionally that falters, but in general it was there throughout. They are adaptable, and particularly skilled on the carpentry side. Particular highlights were the quality of finish they achieved on stripping back to our floorboards, the cupboards they built and installed in our lounge and dining room and the bespoke bike tray we had them build into our hall floor. My one criticism is timing - there was vague initial talk of the job finishing by end March/early April. In reality that finally became late July, although the key work was finished by later June.
