They are awesome.
Robert and his team repainted the front of my house and did some work on the guttering and bay window roof. Excellent work. The level of preparation before painting was very impressive and the final result excellent. Good vale for money; very tidy, cooperative and friendly. Highly recommended

Ben did a top job working alongside Mac Building solutions to do all the plumbing for two bathroom renovations. He was very helpful in explaining the options available for shower units/power, advising what products to buy and the contraints of our property. Certainly the quality of his work was exceedingly high and enjoyable to work with too.

At different times, Pawel has tiled a bathroom floor, also installing a new radiator there. He has fitted an outside tap. He has ripped out damaged carpeting and replaced, so that you do not see that there was a problem. He has fitted new outside lighting as well as improving the lighting arrangements in the garage. He is efficient and versatile, always asking the right questions to ensure he does each job to your satisfaction. First class.

I contacted them on a Monday, they came to see the site Tuesday, discussed some particularly taxing problems and immediately gave a reasonable quote which we agreed. Start and completion dates were agreed with arrangements on furniture shifting and cat boarding. All was done as agreed - minimal dust and inconvenience - on time and exceeding expectation. They have subsequently done 2 neighbours on our recommendation.

Max was very good. At first I thought he might be unreliable because he didn't come on the agreed date to lay a wooden floor - but he had genuinely hurt his shoulder and made extra time to come the next working day.
He and his mate finished the job very professionally in double time, and we have yet to tire of looking at his handiwork. Would certainly use him again.

Pawel is a gem! He redecorated my flat and did a fantastic job - delivered on time and to a very high standard. I also really appreciated his reliable advice, kindness and punctuality. Really impressed.

We moved house this year and asked Terry to fit parquet wood blocks to the entire ground floor area of our new home. The work was done in the same efficient way as their last job for us in 2010 and I noticed that most of his employees have been with the company for many years. They did a first class job on time and on budget.

I bought a house last year and this year wanted to replace the carpets with wood/laminate flooring. It can be quite a daunting task trying to find a company you can trust to do this without getting ripped off as there are so many in London and it's difficult to know who to choose between - there weren't even many reviews on the Internet. However, I took a look on Which? Local and came across trader in my area. Based on the glowing reviews below, I checked out their website and went along to the store to take a look. Anthony was very welcoming and helpful. He spent time to get to know what it was I was looking for and advised accordingly. He explained clearly the advantages and disadvantages of different materials. I also wanted to have a carpet put down on the stairs and he gave great advice about this too. He brought some samples round to my house so I could make the final decision and booked the job in for the following week. I thought I would have had to wait much longer, so was very pleased with this. It took 3 days to do, due to the complexity of the job, and the end result was amazing - it has really changed the look of the place. Every consideration was made to getting the best end result with the finishing done to perfection. The guys who fitted it did a fantastic job and on the one occasion I saw them, were very pleasant. They even replaced some of the skirting boards which had to be removed to get the old flooring up, which I hadn't expected. The place was left clean and tidy after they left. There were a couple of boards that had been scratched somewhere along the line that they hadn't spotted - the floor is quite dark, so the scratches were difficult to see in certain light. I spoke to Anthony about this and he didn't hesitate in offering to change them for free. He even gave me a very large off-cut of the stair carpet which they received due to it being the end of the roll.
If you want quality flooring for a good price expertly put down with service that goes the extra mile, go to Thorowgoods!

Since the very beginning of our renovation project, back in December 2012 when we first moved into our flat.
Pawel helped us to put in a new kitchen, bathroom plus a small cloakroom (including setting up new appliances), general decoration such as painting and wallpapering.
Back then we had to move in before the construction started, and the team managed to complete everything with maximum speed and minimal interruption to our daily routines.
We also appreciate how some of the nudging issues are solved in a timely and professional manner – Pawel really takes pride in delivering quality and professionalism.
More recently we had Pawel over to lay new floor boards in the loft and replaced all the radiators, all done quickly and neatly. The flat feels better insulated than before.
In between these jobs, Pawel also helped us on several ‘emergencies’ when we have no one to turn to (leaking sink pipes, broken boilder…when no one in the area could come out with a short notice).
Really appreciate all the work and help so far and would recommend Pawel and his wide network of professionals highly to everyone.

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.

My daughter commissioned the trader to renovate her whole 3 bedroom home from scratch. Everything we had read about them prior to this turned out to be true, they stripped it back to the bare bones, and put it back together with skill and attention that most would only reserve for their own homes. Nothing was too much trouble, and the finish was excellent. The only slightly negative comment she can make is that it took a while longer than they had suggested, but in the end it was definitely well worth waiting for.”
