A down-pipe from our roof was directed onto our conservatory roof which meant the conservatory gutters could not cope when there was heavy rain. Adrian came at the appointed time, cleared the gutter and suggested diverting the down-pipe onto another down-pipe. He carried out the work on time at the agreed price to our satisfaction. He even inspected our main roof and told us it did not need to be replaced (as recommended by another roofer). We found him to be very helpful and courteous.

We found Charles through this website when we were looking to renovate a house we had recently bought. It was required a fair bit of work - it had no heating, needed completely rewiring, needed new windows throughout and we wanted to convert the loft as well as add an extension to the kitchen and dining room. From the several quotes we received, Charles was certainly not the most expensive, nor was he the cheapest, but what was clear from his very detailed quote was that he didn't cut corners, used the best materials and had an eye for detail. Everything we had asked for was quoted in detail - unlike some of the 'cheaper' quotes where lots of things were missing, inevitably leading to the price rising throughout the job. We were confident Charles would manage the job proficiently from the start, and he helped us decide the details of the work and get the necessary plans and building regs. He was able to communicate clearly and really managed the entire project well. Because his quote was clear we were able to keep tabs on the costs, and Charles kept within the budget - letting us know if we changed anything (as we inevitably did!) what the cost implications were. Any extra costs were reasonable and in line with the costs he had quoted already. Unlike most builders Charles was always willing to our ideas about what we wanted and helped advise us the best way to achieve it rather than tutting and shaking his head! He certainly is not someone who looks for the easiest solution for him. We also liked the fact that we had the same team working throughout the project - this meant that each tradesman knew the project and we could talk to them direct if we wanted about details of the project. We were not able to be on site every day, but this was not a problem with Charles overseeing the project. He did this really well, and kept us in the loop and was a pleasure to deal with. The loft space he created is really fantastic - he manage to create a large room (larger than other quotes we received) and the finishing and craftsmanship was first class. The best thing is, it really feels like part of the house rather than added on. The same is true of the extension. It has transformed the downstairs of the house and again is really nicely done. There were several potentially tricky things in the design and layout, but Charles was so patient in helping us get it right. Inevitably there are hiccups in any job of this size, but Charles was never anything but a joy to deal with - polite, conscientious, very patient and always willing to go the extra mile and find a solution without breaking the bank. We have recommended Charles to a number of people who have also said how great Charles was and been more than happy with his work. We would always ask Charles to do any building work for us in the future - in fact it was such a positive experience we wouldn't use anyone else. We still stay in touch with Charles and he has really made the difference to the house, and we couldn't recommend him highly enough.

I picked Arnold and his partner, Roland to refurbish my bathroom, based on the excellent recommendations from fellow Which subscribers. I was not disappointed. They gutted my bathroom, removing the old cast iron bath, wc, wash basin and the half-tiled plasterboard from the stud partition walls. They reinstalled a new metal bath with a hinged shower screen, wc and washbasin. In addition, they installed a water softener, which was tucked neatly away under the wash basin. New plumbing for the softener included breaking into the cold water pipe feeding the header tank, as well as connections to the drain and the overflow pipe, all of which were very neatly done. New plasterboard was installed on all walls and half tiled again with the top half either painted or wall papered. The walls, ceiling and door were prepared and redecorated to a high standard. Finally, the old vinyl floor tiles were removed and a new floor covering laid over a plywood base. Both workman have a "can do" attitude, are polite and courteous, and respected the fact, that we were still living in the house whilst the work was being carried out. Everything was tidied up at the end of each day and all the rubbish was removed and disposed of properly at the end of the job. The result was a transformation, achieved in only 8 days, and I can't recommend Arnold and Roland highly enough.

I contacted Arnold on the basis of the great reviews in ‘Which local’ and I’m very glad to report back that I was not disappointed. Arnold and Roland worked together on gutting my bathroom, replacing ceiling and walls, flooring, installing new bath and shower suite and Tiling, also replacing hallway ceiling and painting all in 9 days. The standard of work was high throughout, they worked together efficiently and were always polite and courteous, kept the work area’s tidy and cleared up at the end of each day. I am so very pleased with my super new bathroom/hallway and I have no hesitation at all in recommending Arnold and team for any future works. Thank you guys 

We used AW in June 2014 and have been very pleased with the final job. The work included rendering a tall chimney, repairing cracks in the render to the front walls and painting the whole of the front of the house both masonry and wood. We also had one room that had suffered damp from leaks completely re-plastered and painted so that it is like new.The external work required scaffolding for access and it went up when planned and came down as soon as it was no longer needed. The work was done on time and to quote. Any extras that we asked for were quoted promptly. AW was very keen to go over any last minute snagging and solved unforeseen minor problems without any extra charge.

Fatmul, who is currently managing Leka responded promptly to my first phone call. He came to give me a quote when he said he would and did the work when he said he would. He and a colleague repaired my guttering, built a step and painted the front wall and porch. They worked to a high standard, were courteous, explained what they were doing and tidied everything away when they had finished. Fatmul fixed some guttering problems I had not noticed but charged no more than the agreed price. They fitted me into a weekend at short notice. I would use them again if I need them and my neighbour is interested in using them from observing them in action.

Used Wittick Building for a plastering job - making good a wall and ceiling after removing a built-in boiler cupboard. I was very happy both with the work and with the level of communication throughout the process. The job was carried out within the promised time frame, well prepared and executed, cleaned up afterwards and all for a fair price. I would use them again without hesitation.

We used Valmir Lekka to carry out the refurbishment of a very tired one bed rental. We picked his name up on Which Local and were hesitant at first as he hadn’t come as a personal referral. We really shouldn’t have worried! Valmir was professional from the outset. He has a good eye for detail and sets high standards for himself and his team. Valmir and his team stripped out the old paper from the entire property, chased in new pipe work for a new heating system, including fitting a new and boiler, rewired the entire property, replaced badly damaged ceilings in all rooms, re-plastered throughout, fitted a new kitchen, tiled and lay a new floor in the kitchen and painted throughout the property. The end result far out weighed what we had expected and has created a fabulous top end rental property. During the build we uncovered a structural problem in the communal roof space, this entailed 9 months of negotiation with freeholders and residents association, putting our refurbishment on hold for that period. Valmir was incredibly understanding and even re-juggled his work schedule to finish off our refurbishment 10 months after he started, with the help of his right-hand man Ben. Ben by the way is a whizz with kitchen fitting. We would have no hesitation in recommending his services.

I have used this company twice now. First to re-pebbledash my house and paint the roof soffits, and now they have relaid my driveway (concrete) - digging it out and creating a new base. Clad the frame round my garage door with PVC and replaced a gate-post that had rotted. I have found Tony Fox to be friendly and accommodating. His prices are reasonable and the work is done to a high standard. I would happily recommend him for building and maintenance work. He has been in business since 1983.

We had the the gable end of our house re-rendered and painted by Leka Builders - Fatlum and his team did a great job at a price we were happy with, and we are very pleased with the results. The site was extremely well cleared up after the work was done. We would highly recommend Leka Builders to anyone. Thank you, Fatlum!

I have used the business to update two bathrooms The work included fitting new units, tiling some electrical work. Arnold provided reasonable quotes for both jobs. The jobs were not as straightforward as they first seemed, but were able to be completed to a high standard. He and his colleagues were polite, tidy and punctual. The two jobs were finished within a reasonable amount of time.I would highly recommend them as I'm really happy with the finished rooms.

Arnold and his team did a great job for me tiling my bathroom, at a great price. Arnold was prompt and very professional at every stage. I have already recommended him to many friends and would definitely use him again.
