Builder Can anyone recommend reasonably priced good, reliable builder locally? Tweet Comments Showing 10 of 10 Michelle 9 months, 4 weeks ago Was told about this website today - worth checking out as it includes testimonials: http://www.mybuilder.com Nina 9 months, 4 weeks ago Yes! Thomas - 07944 405 451 - think he's based in Wimbledon. He just finished a small job for me and was excellent: punctual, reliable, neat and tidy, personable, hard working, thorough, and calm in an unexpected concrete lintel crisis. Please tell him I recommended him. victoria c 9 months, 4 weeks ago May I recommend Herman Jiminez - just finished our drive - laying it with Indian sandstone as well as a 5 m Victorian black and white tiled path.He has also moved a bathroom from the back of a property to the front - no mean feat!Honest,reliable, well priced and a pleasure to have around.Welcome to look at the drive and path - cant show the bathroom as the flat is rented out.private message me for my address.Herman's number is 07949 481798 Frances 9 months, 4 weeks ago Thanks everyone for your kind feedback. I have used the Mybuilder website but have recently found that builders are charged as soon as you ask for a quote so I feel bad if I don't give them the work! I have also found the builders from this site generally charge extra because of this now and can be quite pushy in getting the job. Therefore, I prefer to go by local recommendations and would be interested in hearing from people who have consistently found a particular builder to be good. I have given the two builders mentioned a call so thanks and I will keep you updated as to how I get on. Suat C 9 months, 1 week ago Hi. Have you found anyone? I am looking for a local builder for my kitchen. Rina M 8 months, 3 weeks ago Hi Victoria,On your recommendation I contacted Herman and he came round to inspect and gave me a reasonable quote (I have a couple of leaks). We arranged for him to come yesterday but didn't show up. Left three messages but hasn't responded. Thought he was reliable. Maybe I should try Thomas as recommended by Nina. On previous threads Stan Jones and Alan Jones (not related) were recommended too. victoria c 8 months, 3 weeks ago Hi Rina - sorry to hear that. I found Herman to be very reliable .Obviously one can only go on ones experience... you try to help these tradesmen and then they let people down and then they wonder why they don't get any business. Shame the building industry is not run by women, would be a far better organisation! Good luck with Thomas Rina M 8 months, 3 weeks ago Hi Victoria,Thanks for your message. I was a bit hasty here as Herman has just called me and had loads of problems yesterday including a broken phone so couldn't call me. He's made amends and is coming on Monday now. Shall mention your name to him as sounds as though he did a great job for you. Rina M 8 months, 3 weeks ago By the way, agree, the country SHOULD be run by women. We're more reliable, flexible, multi-taskable and level headed. victoria c 8 months, 3 weeks ago Good I am pleased that all has worked out.Yes he did a wonderful job for us, I am VERY pleased with the drive and the Victorian tiled path he did. Nice man, great job! Comments are closed. Why not start a new conversation?
