Maciej (and Lucas) have been with us for 6 months doing a whole house renovation including a side return extension; 2 bathrooms, repairing a flat roof, carpentry, re-doing both gardens, and painting from top to bottom. The finish is excellent - he treats the house as though its his own - is fussy in a good way - and all the way through he and his team worked hard, and cleaned up as best they could to enable us to stay in the house. His prices we reasonable, he stuck to them and when problems arose we worked through them with no drama. He's a good man, and importantly is completely trustworthy. I recommend him very highly.

We wanted to sort out the kitchen/dining area in our Edwardian terrace house, including a new floor, re-plastering and installing a new fireplace. Previous owners had removed the dividing wall but it still left a small, awkwardly-shaped kitchen space. We got a number of quotes and, although Corsair were not the cheapest, we decided that they offered us the help we needed. Rather than just work to our orders they met us beforehand and helped us come up with sensible solutions. Liam and Kate had a morning with us at IKEA and made sure that the bits ordered were correct and sufficient for the job. Liam is a craftsman and his work is of a high quality while Kate was endlessly patient in helping to make the right design decisions, with Liam's help. We found them very easy to work with, and the whole team were polite, friendly and helpful. We are very pleased that we decided to pay a bit more as we now have an area that exceeds our expectations and should last for a long time. We have no hesitation in recommending Corsair if you are undertaking a large project.

Ali quoted for repair, plastering and painting of cracked ceilings; repairing and painting coving and painting doors. The work was done by Louis and Danny who I can highly recommend. All the work was done to an excellent standard, especially the plastering. They covered and sealed the carpets and furniture and left everywhere perfectly clean, clearing up any mess at the end of each day. They are a great team, very professional and did a brilliant job.

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.

Adrian has done several jobs in recent months including laying Firestone rubber membranes on flat roofs, installing a domed skylight over a leaking original flat glass unit and replacing a plasterboard ceiling caused by the leak, then papering and painting it. On each occasion he has done a good job for a fair price and left the site clean and tidy. I have found him reliable, as well as polite and helpful.

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 

My wife and I had a problem in the bathroom over summer where a leak was causing the floorboards to rot. To replace the rotting floorboards meant the bathtub needed to come out. We came across trader on Which Local and were impressed with the number of positive reviews. We spoke with Fatlum to take out the bathtub, replace the floorboards, and install a shower. He quoted a very reasonable price, explained what the work would entail and what difficulties he may encounter once work start, and how long the work would take. Fatlum and his team came across as very professional. He explained what he was doing and why as the work progressed. His work was thorough and to a high standard. He started and finished the work when he said he would. I would have no hesitation in recommending Fatlum and his team. In fact, I have asked Fatlum to come back for a few odd jobs around the house over the last 3 months, including a plumbing issue in the kitchen.

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.
