Having spent most of my working life checking the work of builders I have seen much to make me wary of employing anyone to work in my house. However, advancing years and other interests, together with the sheer scale of the work required to renovate my bathroom led me to search Which? Local. There, the many positive recommendations for the work of trader helped me overcome my reservations. Roman came around on the same day that I phoned him, made helpful suggestions and soon produced an estimate. His friendly and constructive manner and evident experience gave me still more confidence to go ahead. With the work now completed I have no regrets about choosing this contractor and I am very pleased with the quality of the work – particularly the wall and floor tiling. Of course there are a few minor things that could have been done even better but overall the work has more than met my expectations. Roman discussed every stage of the work with me as it proceeded, making suggestions but always being prepared to achieve the end result that I wanted. This included some extra work that neither of us had anticipated – arising from inadequacies in the original house construction. At the end of the job we agreed a reasonable extra payment for this work, although Roman was prepared to stick to his original price if we had not reached an agreement. I have no hesitation in recommending the work of trader and would confidently use them for similar work in the future.

Like other reviewers, I have had an extremely positive experience and was thoroughly impressed with the quality of Igor’s work. Igor completely refurbished my studio flat – including fitting and plumbing the kitchen and bathroom, and fitting an engineered wood floor. To say that I am pleased with the results is an understatement - Igor works methodically without taking shortcuts, and it shows in the high quality, showroom-like finish. Igor is trustworthy, very reliable, reasonably priced and above all extremely competent. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I am delighted with my new living room ceiling and the speed and efficiency with which Zoltan’s men removed my 150 + year old collapsing Victorian ceiling in an open plan space before re-plastering and painting, while creating almost no dust elsewhere in my 2 floored flat. When another company did similar work to my bedroom ceiling, dust penetrated throughout the flat taking months to properly remove. Zoltan’s team continuously and expertly vacumed falling debri and dust with an electric extraction machine as they progressed and repeatedly hoovered the floor below, which was protected with plastic film - together with windows, two entry spaces etc. This company has good communication skills. I have used them before and will do so again.

I would echo the positive comments made by other users: Roman is quiet, polite and quick to come up with suggestions for seemingly tricky jobs. His two men were efficient and trustworthy - important if you have to entrust your keys to them.

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.

trader boarded out my loft and installed a window in January 2015. They did a great job in the agreed time. Not the cheapest of three quotes I received but I am very happy with the results. Can now use much more space in the loft. Happy to recommend this company and will ask them to quote for more painting and decorating jobs required this year.

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.

Last October trader decorated our kitchen, utility room & bathroom on the ground floor and our first floor bathroom. Roman was recovering from an operation so it was his two workers who did an excellent job throughout. They were always punctual, friendly, tidied up very day and also fixed lights that weren't working, cupboard doors that needed rehanging and replaced an extractor fan in the bathroom. I have lost count of the number of times that we have used Roman and we would never go anywhere else as he always does such excellent work and he is always a pleasure to deal with
