Side return extension in sw17 - Extensions job in Tooting, South London

Job description

I am looking for an owner-proprietor builder to carry out a side return extension in Balham. The work will require the removal of lower half of rear wall, digging of 3 steel footings, fitting of three steel horizontal beams, a new party wall as well as drainage for a downstairs shower/toilet.

In addition, significant plumbing and electrical work, including new boiler.

A new utility room shower/toilet, a store room and the new kitchen can also be tendered for, but are secondary to the principal build.

Planning consent, party wall agreements, structural engineer's calculations exist for this project, which requires a January start.

A contractually binding completion clause will be part of any contract.

This is a job for an established builder and references will be required for similar jobs.


Feedback for Aztec Builders & Decorators Division

I agreed with Milosz Kazmierczak in November last year to build a side return extension with a start date of July 6. We had repeated contacts up to that date with him repeatedly agreeing to do the work. One week off, and suddenly he won't answer the phone or emails. A colleague did answer his phone today, but said he was back in 10 minutes. repeated failure to communicate ever since.

This is very unprofessional behaviour, but the good news for me is that work did not start and I have been spared messing around half-way through the job.

I am afraid Milosz is yet another self-employed builder who probably would be better off as an employee. His references were good, but you simply cannot deal with people who behave like this.
