Charles Bell Refurbishments

  • replace mixer/shower hose/shower head

    An easy 5-star review. Charles communicated well, came on time, did the job in an hour at a very reasonable price and then cleaned up afterwards. Job very well done.

    Would easily recommend.

    I am so pleased with Charles and his work. Everything was great from the start. He was prompt in replying to my shortlist invite. He is honest, friendly, and reliable. His work is excellent and my toilet blockage problems have finally been resolved. Communication was good and I now seem to know a lot more about stack drainage systems than I did before. Charles also went out of his way to fix an extra problem I had of a leaking shower hose. He kindly purchased a new shower hose and installed it for me even though this wasn't part of the job I posted. The total cost was extremely reasonable. Charles is definitely a good guy and deserves all of the great reviews he gets! I highly recommend him!

  • Toilet cistern constantly running water

    Charles arrived promptly on a Sunday morning as arranged. As my toilet cistern is concealed, Charles pre warned me, during our phone conversation,that some of the tiles may break in order for him to access the cistern. However, he managed to carefully lift off the tiles without causing damage to them. He completed the job in one hour. This included replacing the tiles and placing the sealant.

    I shortlisted Charles after reading the excellent feedback from previous clients and Charles definitely lived up to that feedback. He was courteous, professional and efficient. He was very neat and tidy and quietly completed the work to a very high standard. His pricing for the job was very reasonable. After having a couple of bad experiences with other professionals, it is such a relief to find someone like Charles. I would not hesitate to ask Charles to do other jobs for me again and I highly recommend him.

We were very impressed and his quote was spot on and great value.
    As we were not living at home while the work was ongoing, Charles sent us photos of the progress of the works on a daily basis and kept in constart communication with us. The end result in the bathroom was just stunning and although we had an idea of how good it would look in our heads, seeing Charles' work in reality was incredible. The tiling on both the wall and floor is perfect.
    As we were so impressed with his work, we had other jobs that needed doing; extract fan pipe put up and boxed in, skirting boards and plywood in the bedroom and living room and new doors throughout, last minute tilling of our kitchen splash back and installing under cabinet lighting. Charles' quotes for those works was very reasonable and the quality of the finish was fantastic.

  • Victorian flat bathroom refit post July

    We are so pleased we hired Charles to take on our complete bathroom refit, he was professional, diligent and despite encountering several unexpected problems still managed to deliver on schedule. Charles tore out the existing bathroom suite, removed plasterboard dividers, installed a new suite, built a housing for the new shower plus lowering the ceiling and tiling the walls and floors to an excellent standard of finish.
    Our flat is Victorian with a variety of inherited problems that were only apparent when work started. Charles worked through all the issues calmly and carefully and still delivered on time. With the exception of the plasterwork he handled the entire project himself, to ensure quality and timing commitments were met.
    This was our first major overhaul and we were feeling nervous but we had Charles' sole focus the whole time and were very reassured by his thoughtful and diligent approach. We really appreciated his expertise, professional manner and consideration, minimising dust and mess in the rest of the flat. We are extremely happy with the results and would not hesitate to recommend Charles to anyone needing his expertise.

  • Bathroom pipe unblocking

    My flat is in a 1930s building with non-standard historic pipes and when he uncovered protruding pipes he whatsapp'ed a photo to highlight the challenge, arranged for the building water to be turned off and managed to remove them so all the pipe work could be hidden below the flooring and in the walls. His tiling was excellent.

    Charles refurbished our bathroom and from start to finish was fantastic.

We didn't have much of a design concept and Charles made suggestions on what kind of tiles to get and where to get them and gave us all the measurements and weights of the materials that would be required. In my experience, this is above and beyond what other builders offer. When the sink arrived and was bigger than we had expected, due to the style of that particular model, Charles accommodated us without the slightest hint of a problem, moving our toilet over to make room for the sink. The skill and professionalism of his work has made my wife and I extremely happy. Charles was extremely courteous, trustworthy, diligent and affable in his work. He also cleaned up thoroughly after himself. The finished job looks immaculate and has far exceeded our expectations. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Charles to anybody who wants a quality job done by an unusually skilled and affable man.

  • Bathroom & en-suite rennovation

    Charles recently completed the renovation of our two bathrooms, involving a reconfiguring of the adjoining walls. It was logistically tricky, as we have a young family and needed to always have the use of one of the bathrooms. His careful planning and flexibility made sure of this.

    Throughout the project he was always offering us solutions and alternatives and worked some long hours to make sure the 1st bathroom was complete for when we returned from a week's holiday.

    With such a big job, it's often difficult to plan down to the smallest detail, but when we expressed dissatisfaction with a small element of the finish, Charles was prepared to re-do it for us. The job took longer than expected but this was primarily down to problems with underfloor leaking and the time required to dry out, tile delivery issues etc.

    We are absolutely delighted with our bathrooms and the quality of the work, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Charles to anyone.

I experienced Charles to be a trustworthy, reliable and flexible person. I was worried about a deadline but he worked over the weekend and bank holiday to get the job done on time. I am very satisfied with his service which is both competitively priced and professionally done. l would definitely use Charles again and recommend him to my family and friends.

  • Bathroom refit

    Charles and his team were very professional, trustworthy and polite, fitted the work in around my tight deadline, work was delivered to a high standard and clean, even came back after the job was finished to make further improvements without being asked. I am very happy with the end result, would definitely use his service again and would highly recommend him to anyone.

  • Replace broken shower tray and small damp patch

  • New taps and shower head fitting for bath

    Prompt, tidy and efficient

  • Kithcen tap replacement

    I am very happy with the kitchen tap replacement, Charles was very quick and professional, he was able to replace the tap that had a very awkward access - not easy at all, but that was not a problem for Charles! I would definitely recommend him - he is nice, knows what he is doing, is punctual and left the place tidy. I was so happy with his work, that have arranged for him to fix a shower in my flat as well. Thank you, Charles!

    I was exceptionally happy with the work done by Charles.

    He arrived on time, provided a quote in a timely manner and explained exactly what was wrong in my kitchen and bathroom, as well as the steps he was going to take to fix it. All of these things contributed to a feeling of confidence about the process and an understanding of the costs, in advance of choosing to hire him.

    The work carried out was done to a very high standard and was done at a reasonable cost. Charles finished the work efficiently, with minimal mess and hassle and the finish on the work was excellent.

  • Replace toilet pan connector, add rodent barrier valve

    Charles was very quick to respond to the job posting. Eventhough it was more of a complicated and lengthy job than originally imagined (due to some problems with how my toilet had been fitted) and involved coming 2 days in a row, he did not charge more than the price quoted beforehand. Reasonably priced and good service. I would recommend him.

  • Resecure Toilet / stop leak

    Charles was extremely Punctual... his workmanship was of a very high professionalism! would recommend / use Charles again for sure!

  • Unblock toilet

    Although Chris could not solve the issue I had with my blocked toilet. He was punctual, polite and respectful. He attempted everything he could to resolve my issue. But Once he had established the problem being the macerator,he advised me to post the job out again as this wasn't his area of expertise.

    Great work and returned multiple times to check if everything was working.

    We were happy with the work that Charles did on our bathroom. He was competitively priced and we found him reliable and trustworthy. He worked hard and finished fitting our new bathroom within the timeframe he set out. His work is of a good standard and we would happily use Charles for any work in the future.

  • rebuild the shower

    We are super happy we chose Charles to build our shower. He was very quick in all correspondence, his quote was reasonable, he was flexible about timigs and didn't mind although I changed some specs in the job. The finish was very professional and we love our new shower. We have now asked Charles to quote for other jobs as well. He is so trustworthy and a very nice person to deal with.

  • Tile a small fireplace

    Charles was quick to reply and quick to prioritize the work. He completed the work on time and to a very high standard with no mess.
    We received a very high standard of service from Charles and we will use him again.

  • Investigate and Fix 'Damp' Smell in Bathroom

    Came round to quote for a job, investigated it and reassured me that there was no work required (rather than pretending there was problem and charging me lots of money to fix it). Trustworthy.

  • re-configeration of downstairs bathroom/utility room

    Charles re-configured our kitchen/utility/bathroom layout, including removing a shower and some structural work to keep the stairs standing.

    He did a great job - high quality work and good communication throughout.

    I have recommended him to some friends, and will use him again

  • Installation of Integrated Dishwasher

    Great work, and reasonable price, thanks Charles

  • Ikea Kitchen fitter required in North London!

  • sink and WCreplacement

    Generally well pleased with the job. Charles was reliable, efficient and polite. There were a few loose ends, but when I contacted him about the main one, he was extremely helpful and did not delay in sorting it out, which is a big plus. My only real gripe was that, although they were very tidy throughout the job, they left the bathroom floor very dirty and messy at the end of the day. But apart from that, it was a good job well done and I think for a very fair price. Thanks -- would recommend to others.

  • Pathway tiles, re-pointing, new coping stones

    I hired Charles to smarten up the front of our Victorian house. He relaid our path tiles, cleaned and repointed the brick wall and replaced the coping stones. The quality of work was excellent and he clearly takes pride in what he does. Charles was punctual, very easy going and I felt completely happy leaving him with my house keys. It's also worth noting that Charles confirmed appointments ahead of time and turned up when he said he would - a huge plus in my book. Recommended.

  • Install a Garden tap to outside wall

    Excellent work, fast freindly and good standard.
    Couldn't be happier

  • Towel rail leaking

    Very good, small job but done quickly and well

  • Hanging 2 x 42" plasma screens + whiteboards

    Charles was fantastic. He was able to do the work on short notice, worked independently in our confusing offices and was neat and efficient.

    Good and perfect.. Will call again!

  • Sink blocked

    Very professional, quick and thorough job - would recommend Charles as a great plumber.

  • Isolating valve replacement

    Fantastic Person to deal with and a Job well done. highly recommend Charles and will use again for sure.

  • Bathroom refit

    Charles did a great job fitting and retiling our bathroom. There were problems along the way, due to our antique plumbing system and a defective pump, but he dealt with them with good humour and excellent problem-solving skills. The job cost more than originally quoted but the reasons for this were clear and we were kept informed throughout. Charles came up with creative solutions, and was flexible and reliable throughout. He's very easy to deal with, and we've asked him back to do more work elsewhere in the house.

  • Bathroom refit

    Charles was easy-going and pleasant to deal with, he did a really nice job on my bathroom, he took care over the finishing details and I would definitely recommend him.

  • Removing old tiles/retiling bathroom

    Charles re-tiled and refitted our bathroom. We were very pleased with the work. His quote was higher than many others but we decided to go with Charles due to the positive feedback on this site. I don't regret that decision. He did most of the work while we were on holiday and even organised a new bath for us when the one we bought wasn't suitable. Did so within the quote without asking extra. A couple of the minor final detals could have been improved (eg as some grouting left on the face of the tiles and Walls). However, I didn't raise them with Charles because of their very minor mature so perhaps that's really my fault. I would recommend Charles.

  • Bathroom refit

    We hired Charles to refit our bathroom. This involved gutting the room, and fitting all units / tiles etc.

    Charles was quick, diligent and professional in his approach. He was able to advise of issues and solutions when giving the quote, as well as during the completion of the work. Throughout the work Charles gave me regular updates of his progress, and we are delighted with the quality of work now that it has been completed.

    During the installation we encountered several problems with receiving delivery of tiles / units for Charles to install. In fact at times we wondered if anything else could go wrong! However, throughout this Charles was very understanding of the problems we were having and was flexible enough to adapt his work to ensure the job was completed in the best time possible.

    With the problems we had, having a builder we could trust and rely on was greatly appreciated. Charles also comes across a genuinely nice bloke. Thanks for your work.

  • repair/replace leaking shower trap

    Did a really thorough job + also resealed a portion of the shower tray. Lovely chap - thanks ever so much. Would have no problem at all recommending.

  • New bathroom installation

    Charles installed my new bathroom, helpfully suggesting design solutions that enhanced its overall look and function. He was always on time and was happy to stay late to finish the job to a high standard. He and his team were always careful to clean up and keep the rest of the house separate from dust and rubble. Overall, it was the most stress-free building experience I've had to date; I now have a stunning, new designer bathroom and would recommend Charles without reservation.

  • Refurbish bathroom

    Charles redecorated my bathroom, including re-tiling the walls and floor, re-painting and hanging some wallpaper. He was very polite and easy to work with. He finished the job to a good standard (coming back to finish off a couple of things when I asked him) and completed some tricky tiling extremely well. I would definitely recommend him.

  • High Flowerbed wall moved (bed made smaller)

    Charles'work was excellent and he completed the job with extreme efficiency on time and on budget. He was polite, friendly and incredibly tidy. In addition to the building/painting work in my garden, he also painted 2 rooms. Again his work here was immaculate. He was extremely proactive with matching paints in the garden as I had left him the wrong sample. He did not complain but just got on with the job at hand. His quotes were extremely competitive. He did some additional work on garden fencing and fixing a leak at another property I own. This experience has been completely different to my recent experiences with builders not turning up,not completing within time nor on budget. Charles is currently quoting me for other work. I would highly recommend him.

Time will tell for the tiles as we've discovered, but he's a nice guy who delivered well, tidied up and did as he said he would up front. I would definitely recommend him.

  • Overflowing cistern

    Charles did an execellant job on my overflowing cisterns. Having worked as a Procurement Professional in the construction Industry for over 25 years I quickly realized that Charles was one of those rare builders who I would have no problem in recommending to friends and familiy. His communication was excellent as was his work, time keeping, consideration and tidiness. I was impressed to the extent that I subsequently employed Charles to carry out some more substantial contstruction works which he completed in the same manner. I will certainly be looking to use Charles again.

    I cannot recommend Charles highly enough. He spent 3 days decorating my kitchen to a high standard. He did exactly what he said he would in the time he said it would take. His work is finished to a high standard and he is clean and tidy. I am thrilled to have found such a reliable builder who I will definitely use again.

  • Flashing on flat roof (to be done this week) Kentish Tn

    Charles was very flexible with dates: when the weather kept on messing us around at short notice he was able to arrange and rearrange dates to do the work so that was helpful.

    I let him in, went away, he did the work, I came and checked the work, he had done the flashing and patched the cracks in the brickwork too.

    Most importantly - there has been a huge amount of rain in the last few days and it has not leaked!

    I would recommend working with Charles.

    Perfect. Very professional. Will definitely be using again (and again)!

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    We needed our bathroom extending, shower installing, bath replacement, and a whole new bathroom fitted into an existing bedroom and several other extra fittings round the house. Charles did an excellent job and was really friendly and charming as well. several times the job changed and he took it in his stride and got everything done to a really high standard. He also stepped in to help when some of the other works that he wasn't involved in were in trouble and saved us from a lot of additional hassle. thoroughly recommended!

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Charles did a fantastic job on my bathroom. It involved ripping out the whole of the previous bathroom and refitting from scratch. He was totally reliable and was there every day till the work was finished, which was completed in the time he allocated. He was also very honest and cost minded and gave many good suggestions on making the project more efficient with excellent results. I would definitely use him again for any future building work I need. He has an excellent all round knowledge of building and oversaw the work carried out when we had to bring in another tradesman (i.e. electrician).

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Charles has done a few jobs for me, one which was a complete refurbishment of a flat and on top of that he's also done a kitchen, a bathroom and some work in the basement too. I will keep using Charles in the future and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. He always comes back to fix any snagging problems, I've always been happy with his prices and he turns up when he says he's going to turn up. The quality of his finish is great and he arranges for qualified people such as Corgi if needed and he makes sure that things are signed off properly. Highly recommended.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Charles has done 4 or 5 full refurbishments for me which includes all aspects of building work from kitchens, bathrooms, decorating, landscaping, extensions etc. He's very good and very knowledgeable of the planning process. We've always had a good working relationship and we've come to be friends over the years as well. He's very reliable and trustworthy and I do recommend him quite frequently. I'm a property developer but due to the current climate I've had to go back to my 'normal' work but when things start to pick up I hope that Charles can start helping me again.
