Existing concrete slab to entrance needs to be relaid. Groundwork & Foundations
So we took a leap - got a tradesman of the net. He was damn good. We had a specific issue and Liviu came with deep and extensive knowledge. He dug up and investigated with precision and care and was prepared to work with us but also tells us gently if we were wrong. We paid him more than he asked for because he was dutiful and reliable. He went the extra mile and we were a bit shocked. If this review reads to good to be true, it isn’t. Despite his busy diary, he fitted our project in at relative short notice. We will be using him again.

Break up concrete foundation and remove (prep for lawn) Groundwork & Foundations
Liviu was my absolute saviour after I was left with a half dug concrete mass in my garden after a gardener quit after a day! Liviu and his brother drilled up and removed around 6 tonnes of concrete in half a day and came back the next morning to put it all in a skip (and in record time!!). They were so considerate of my neighbours, worked really quickly and kept things tidy. On top of all that they are both very friendly, polite guys. Would definitely recommend Liviu!

Slab for shed. Frame&ground work is done Groundwork & Foundations
Liviu did a 3 meter x 2 meter foundation slab for me. It’s for a shed. He replied within minutes after a left an advert. His pricing was very competitive compare to others. They did the slab for me the very next day. He arrived promptly at the agreed time. He is and labourer had all the equipment with them. They were finished within 2 hours. They clean up after themselves and they left my back garden in a perfect condition. Liviu and his labourer were very quiet and my neighbours did not even realise that they were mixing concrete and laying the foundation. I write this review a few weeks after the job was completed because I wanted to make sure the foundation did not crack. It’s solid and there is no signs of nat cracks. The foundation is level and square. I can not fault Liviu on any aspect of the job. They were very professional, competitive, respectful, helpful, the did not leave a mess. Liviu can be trusted. His work ethics is of the highest standards! I plan to lay a concrete pathway in my back garden and I will definitely use Liviu again. Thank you for the excellent service Liviu.

Hole for foundation to be dug. Groundwork & Foundations
Liviu Afloarei and his team were excellent. They worked hard, when they said they would. The work done was of good quality. I felt I completely trusted Liviu. He was very well-organised, and he and his men were polite and efficient. They also cleaned up afterwards and left things very nicely. So, it is a 10 out of 10 from me, and I would recommend him without any reservation.

Liviu is a great guy, he came round the next day and quoted very competitively, even said he could do the job that day.
Did a good job of laying a small patio and fixing some guttering drainage issue.
Would recommend him, very hard fast worker, cleaned up and a pleasure to have around 👍

Relaying concrete in Bin Area Groundwork & Foundations
Liviu was very pleasant to deal with from the start of the job through to the end making sure that I was happy with the job. He was very quick to quote for the job and quoted a very good price. Once given the go ahead he was able to do the job the very next day and complete it. All the rubbish was cleared away that day too. I was not on site but he was able to send me pictures of the completed job and had no issues making some amendments to make sure that the job was completed to my satisfaction and that I was happy with it. Definitely recommend him and will use him again in the future.

Liviu is friendly, organised, efficient, and communicates well (in less than 10 days from posting, he visited, quoted, planned, delivered supplies for, and did the job). I wanted more room for plants in my garden: he worked hard and fast to break up and remove three areas of concrete (and the rubble underneath them), including cutting one area very precisely along a boundary fence to preserve the surface on the neighbour’s side. We discussed pros and cons of removing or retaining a badly cracked concrete path in a fourth area above a very shallow drain: Liviu’s attention to detail and sensible questions gave me confidence in his ability to clear this area with the care it needed. He and his team laid a replacement concrete path here, neatly aligning the surface to match the differing levels (and gradients) of the paths at either end of it and the drain cover within it. Everything was kept tidy during the work, and Liviu had all the waste taken away in a skip. I am very pleased with how the work all went, and with the new path.

Remove concrete to plant tree Groundwork & Foundations
Liviu was absolutely brilliant - best experience I have had on my builder. We needed concrete removing from our courtyard to plant a tree. this was a much bigger job than I had anticipated and because I only had an hour free liviu came back the next day to finish the job. He was helpful, polite, fast and left everything so clean including removal of the rubbish, will definitely hire again - thank you!

Levelling ground and pouring concrete for a shed base Groundwork & Foundations
Liviu was absolutely incredible! His team worked exceptionally hard to get (a really difficult) job done to an exceptional standard. He was friendly and hard-working throughout the whole process and I would not hesitate to hire him for any other works needed on my home. He honestly made the whole process effortless and truly went out of his way to make sure I was happy. He really goes over and above to make the client experience tremendous. Thank you so much for your work and I would recommend Liviu to anyone looking to have work done at your home. My job required a lot of back-breaking long hours and Liviu didn't complain or take breaks all day long. He just gets the job done!! THANK YOU!!!

COncrete base for garden shed Groundwork & Foundations
The boys did a fantastic hob, they worked really quickly, sticked to the plan and everything that we had agreed upon. Very friendly and professional. I have dealt with many but never seen this level of keenness, speed and quality before. Just to help you all, don’t bother looking through reviews of other builders, these guys will make your life easier, take the stress of building works away and do so with a smile and at reasonable prices. You simply can’t go wrong.

Liviu and Marius were absolutely fantastic. The communication was clear throughout, they arrived on time and did a great job of laying a large concrete base for a garden building.

Liviu is friendly, communicates well and did a good job. He was punctual and kept to what he said. The concrete base he put down looks really solid and we are also asking him to do a few other jobs in the garden following this one.

Prepare Foundations For New Shed Groundwork & Foundations
Before agreeing to take the job, Liviu asked many questions to make sure we both understood the job and what I was trying to achieve. He worked very hard, and was polite, tidy and thoughtful. He laid down protective sheets for the lawn and driveway and went to the effort to ensure the garden was left tidy. He was flexible and offered various solutions which enabled me to make a decision based on my budget too. I'd definitely recommend Liviu. I will most definitely be offering more jobs in my property to him and hope he has time to take them on!

Dig and fill in trench Handyman
Liviu dug a trench outside my house to replace a lead pipe with a wider non-lead pipe and connect it to the supplier mains.
He gave the most cost effective quote, turned up at the appointed time, did the job professionally, left no mess and was very pleasant and conscientious.
I recommend Liviu.

Levelling of small area of garden for climbing frame Groundwork & Foundations
Liviu arranged to come round one evening to look at the job and give me a quote. He agreed to do it for a good price. I told him that I needed it doing asap so Liviu went to his car, got all his tools and cracked on with it!! It was 33 degrees that day but that didn't slow him down one bit and he got the job done in 2 hours by himself! Other builders told me it would take 2 men 2 days and wanted to charge 6 times the amount. Job done to a high standard and liviu was always making sure that I was happy with the progress. I was so happy that I got Liviu to do a similar job at my allotment the following evening which again was done in 2 hours for same price and no issues. A proper grafter with a real 'can do' attitude. Highly recommended.
