Builder recommendations needed

We are in the process of buying a house that needs a lot of work doing on it - extension, new electrics, plumbing, plastering, decorating etc.

Can anybody recommend some good builders and other tradesmen in the area so that I can request some quotes.

Thanks in advance.

Plumber (bathrooms etc) then try Mick Ward, 07941095809. He had done various projects and jobs for people on this web site. Got good reviews.

For all decorating jobs and much more http://www.cargobikehandyman.co.uk/aboutus.html  is an absolute must.

If you need a fabulous new kitchen or bespoke furniture try this fella http://www.cunninghamfurniture.com/

Hi,

My brother can do the painting and decorating, he has been doing that for over 20 years, and he is local. You can reach him (James) on 07984 646 351 or via his website at http://paintersanddecorators.co.cc/.

Thanks

Hi

We had a side return extension and a complete house refurb, including plumbing and electrics.  We used Martin Rachon from Keypoint Construction.  http://www.keypoint-construction.com/index.php

If you do get a quote from Martin and would like to take a look a what he has done to our house then please email me.

Hi

Dulwich Construction rebuilt our bathrooms earlier this year and did an excellent job, with a lot of care and attention to detail, their website is http://www.dulwichconstruction.com/  they do all size jobs and were professional and good to work with.

We are also in process of buying in Herne Hill (fingers crossed after earlier disappointments), so hope to soon be southlondongal :-).

Need work done on rather smaller scale than the OP and hopefully relatively inexpensively. If anyone can recommend a more small time reliable local builder and maybe local double glazing firm (the two above sound great but quite upmarket) I would be grateful.

Re: Builder recommendations needed

I have had lots of refurbishment done with Colin and Nick - excellent builders/tradesmen - i

They have done painting/decorating/built in cupboards/knock through walls/electrics/bathrooms etc..

I originally got them from the owner La Gastronomia (half moon lane) - they did the extension at the back there.

Colin - 07748 873873

Nick - 07960 036705

Hi

If you are looking for special trades, Yen Lin (07798530265) is an excellent local plumber and has been working in the area for many years, and Sunny (07958919179) is a excellent local electrician, and  can also take on larger building projects. Both have done a lot of work for us over the years and I'm sure other HHF readers have used them and been happy customers.

Re: Builder recommendations needed

Any more builder recommendations? Surely many Herne Hillers have had building work done in the last few years?

Hoping you haven't mostly ended up with bad builders who you wouldn't want to recommend?

If you have please post warnings on 'builders' to avoid too!!

Hello,

I am a local handyman and would love to help with any of the smaller jobs you may have.  I can do many things including major building work but would prefer to leave that to others as my attention wanes after about 5 days.  A friend of mine however, Shannon Huntley, is a master builder and works to a very high standard. He would be able to sort out all of the major work and organize electricians, plumbers, etc. so you would have one point of contact.  Please email me with your number and I will pass it to him.

Re: Builder recommendations needed

Have you tried the 'services' listed on the site? For instance TJ Builders Herne Hill. We built the extension at the back of The Florence when it was Ganleys. Smile

Thanks to all who have replied. Our flat purchase now delayed but hopefully will still come to completion, eventually.

A note of warning on using TJ

A note of warning on using TJ Builders (who we found through the HH forum) - we had a terrible experience with them: they abandoned our bathroom job half finished having pestered us for money throughout the job, which hadn't been agreed in advance. Fortunately we had only paid about 70% when they walked out, but it has taken months to get other firms in to fix and redo their work. 

They botched the tiling (many chips up the edging of the metro tiles - clearly cut using the wrong tools) and we had to get a plumber in to redo some of the piping as it was so bad (visible sink feeds set at totally different levels, wobbly sink...). They also failed to consult us before tiling the floor, though we had discussed talking it over before they did it - so tiles are now the wrong way around. Plus they set the shower so low it touched our heads!  (I'm 5"8.)
