Plastering and painting after water damage

Verified Review

I would highly recommend and use Grahame again in the future. Grahame's very helpful, accommodating, conscientious, passionate about his work and cares about his customers. On his initial visit Grahame did a thorough inspection of the damage and advised exactly what needed to be done and explained the reasons why and what would happen if it wasn't. As the property is in the process of being sold the work was planned to be done as a priority as soon as the walls had dried out and was.

Rendering the outside of the house. Replacing windows. Gutter cleaning and soffits.

Verified Review

I had booked the building work in March2021, the weather prevented this from happening and was promised it would commence in Spring 2022. As regards this job, I had to chase for the whole of 2022 and when it started in November only parts of the job were completed, and some of the jobs were half done and I was left with a mess in the garden and on the house. I was forced by December to sack the builder and I had to find another company to finish the work at greater expense to myself. It was a shame because other work he did was very good. Don't know what went wrong.

Repointing, renewing flashing and painting exterior doors and windows, making good inside the property

Verified Review

Grahame came round to look at work needed to be completed, he told me the issue and how it would be rectified. His team were clean and tidy, he made a small repair to my neighbours chimney as it would impact on my work if he didn’t at no extra cost (my neighbour was out and couldn’t be contacted). I was away and he held a key whist he was completing the work and kept me informed of the work being done. Due to being poorly the work ran slightly over, this didn’t impact me or the work being done. Would highly recommend

Repairs to internal chimney breast and internal brickwork. Elimination of damp in walls and floor,

Verified Review

I have rarely seen such thorough and careful assessment, and then outstanding attention to detail in every complexity of the problem. I saw some work done and I feel very secure that Grahame has correctly identified all the causes of the damp and that I will not be having any more problems in the long term. He informed me at every stage and the generosity of him and his colleagues show people who enjoy their work and really care about their clients. As a newcomer to Norwich, I was very nervous of finding a trustworthy builder - Grahame and his team will be my first port of call every time!
