I didn't progress with a quote with Onyx due to reasons outside their control so cannot comment on quality & value. However Azur was very approachable & I was impressed by his flexibility & swift communication.
We live in a ground floor flat of a victorian house and have an original narrow coal cellar which requires some work to convert into a more practical useable space. The ceiling is very low (exposed beams) and the electrics needs addressing. The staircase needs replacing, and we would like to build in some under-staircase bespoke storage. The walls are the original brick and have just been painted so would need plastering/ painting (and checking for damp/ whether dry lining required -although we don't think there is any damp currently) There would also be some repairs required where there are currently gaps in the wall. We have a macerator for our washing machine along with a tumble dryer which is stored down there at the moment. We would ideally like to relocate this to a more convenient location down there and additionally build in a worktop so one can sit on top of the other and save some room.
Delighted with the work that has been carried out by David's team -polite, hard working but most importrantly delivered an excellent finish on the job.
Updated : Modification to our flat: we need to remove a stud wall about 8" long and also two door frames to change two rooms into one large living room. We then need to reposition one of the door frames. There should be limited wiring work to do, and then after the wall is removed and repositioned we'll need to plaster and make good the gaps. I am no professional but I'm hoping it might only take 2-3 days. Original : There is a stud wall to make a third bedroom in the front of our flat and we want to take it out and move the wall/doorway to make it one large room. There are no radiators on the walls, but there might be a light switch.
Rob was quick to come and see us and give a quote, and the builders Ziggy and Ted have done a great job of turning the two rooms in the front of our flat into one lovely living room. They were reliable and the quality of the work is great. They did various jobs for us, and will be fitting our new kitchen soon as well. We would certainly recommend them.
The kitchen and lounge are set on a split level which is divided by a traditional style spindle bannister. We would like quotes to remove the existing bannister and replace with the build of a 70cm high by 10cm thick wall. The length of the wall is probably no more than 200cm. I imagine the build of the wall will require a timber frame with a plaster board finish and insulated so as not to sound hollow. I'm not sure if this the work for a joiner, builder or plasterer.
This really was a 5 star professional service from start to finish with no complications.
Provided a written quote, always arrived at time agreed, polite and respectful builder who I felt confident to leave in my own home. Listened carefully to my requirements and delivered as specified completing the job in minimal time to a high standard.
The are was cleaned afterwards with all debris from job removed.
In his closing line I was invited to call if I had any problems with the work once it had settled.
Really couldn't have asked for more. Best builder I've worked with to date and higly recommended.
New kitchen due to be installed soon and I need a new duct installed in the roof space for a new ceiling extractor (including flue).
Ged came and delivered exactly what was asked of him to a high standard. It was done within 2-3 hours and the price was reasonable. He assessed the job thoroughly including an in depth look in the ceiling space and also went off and purchased the required materials. It was only a small job, but a job well done. Thanks Ged.
Small room in basement flat has damp problems following work to underpin the building. I'd like to find and solve the root of the problem and redecorate. The room is approx. 6' x 10'. I'd also like to investigate a partition wall at the end of the room and look at repairing the floor where it is has dropped.
Job quickly agreed, he arrived on time and completed the agreed work on budget
Knock down internal wall approx 3.5m. Thin - non-load bearing. + plastering, painting etc. to neaten up afterwards.
It was only a small job (to knock down a non-load bearing internal wall) but it was done quickly and to good quality leaving the minimum mess to clear up afterwards. Ralph and his team were professional and helpful throughout.
We have a victorian house with a manhole in the front garden. Two walls of the manhole are falling apart. The hole will need to be hand dug and 2 x walls re-built. Care will need to be taken to prevent collapse of the earth behind walls so as to maintain intengrity of foundations / earth. Estimated time = 1 week of work. I will arrange a skip.
I was contacted shortly after posting the job. I was given clear advice on the telephone about the work required and within in few days had conducted a site inspection. The job was carried out to an IMMACULATE standard, with WB and his team thoughtfully finding a workable solution to our drainage/manhole problem. The work was completed swiftly, neatly, to a very high standard, and at a fair price. I would urge people to use this company. Many thanks.
Extension to back of terraced house which will contain the kitchen. Changing current kitchen to utility room / downstairs bathroom. We already have planning permission.
We are so pleased with our new extension which comprises a brand new kitchen, dining area, utility room and bathroom. Max and Frank worked closely with us throughout the whole process and made sure we got everything exactly as we wanted it. The work is of a very high standard and we've had lots of complements from friends. The brickwork is beautiful as are the roof and huge wooden doors. The new wooden floor is totally in keeping with the style of the rest of the house and looks great. They cared about the quality and finish of the work as much as we did and kept to budget. We are really glad we went with them to extend our home and are very happy with the result.

Water problems in basement arising from some recent damp-proof work. Worsening daily and would appreciate an urgent response.
Unsold lead, updated details: We would like work to commenced on 9th Nov 2013 Original: The rear gable end of two adjoining first floor maisonettes is bowing out and there is a crack in the party wall between the two properties. The gable end needs rebuilding. Specifically the structural engineer who reviewed the building has recommended that "the gables of both properties be rebuilt above eaves level, fully bonding the new brickwork internally into the end of the Party Wall. [I would] also recommend that stainless steel bed-joint reinforcement is built into every third bed joint, extending over the full lengths of the joints between roof slopes.

Hello. I would like my staircase looked at to stop some steps from rattling. I have noticed that the stairs look like they have moved away from the side skirting boards so there may be more to deal with than simply planking the steps back on. I have photos to send if required but would appreciate some professional help. Many thanks.
