Ernest Sergy Building Services LTD

  • Knock-through + ceiling replacement + tiling

    Sergy, Ernest and their team have done an amazing job renovating our kitchen and dining area.

    They progressed very fast with the initial stage of knocking through the wall and tearing down false ceilings, old tiles, kitchen etc. Sergy was quick to point out that my structural engineer's drawings were incorrect (and would have resulted in much more work than needed) and this was confirmed by the building inspector. He ended up recommending another engineer who made correct drawings and the work was subsequently signed off by the council.

    Once that was done, the new ceiling and plasterboards went up quickly, and the skimmers did a great job giving the walls and ceiling a smooth finish. Following that spotlights were installed, the walls were painted, flooring was laid, skirtboards added and new radiators installed. Finally they unpacked the new kitchen, assembled and installed the units and fitted appliances.

    Sergy kept us informed at every stage and asked clarifying questions whenever needed rather than making assumptions.

    We particularly appreciated his flexibility when at some point when we asked for the work to be stopped for a few days due to family illness.

    We are very pleased with the end result and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sergy and his company to anyone we know.

  • New door and window

    Ernest and Sergy got the job completed in one day and did an excellent job. Really happy with their work - would definitely recommend. Thank you both.

  • Putting in partition wall and moving radiator

  • Chimney breasts removal

    Ernest Sergy Building Services Ltd is definitely a superb company and I would not hesitate to recommend them. I was having problems finding a builder who could read the handwriting of the structural engineer’s calculations plus the drawings did not have much details it failed to mention a stud wall between the two bedrooms. Sergy sent me pictures of how he planned to undertake the task which he asked me to show the Building Officer for his approval. The removal of the two chimneys was done by Ernest and Sergy to a high standard and the debris cleared away. I look forward to working with them on my next project.

  • moving windows

    I was massively impressed by the quality of work, the attention to detail and the tidiness of Sergy and his mate.

The price quoted was very reasonable.
    On installation, the team was very efficient and tidy (all dirt was swept up and tools put neatly away overnight). The door itself is beautiful and was fitted and painted very neatly to a high standard - we are very pleased with the quality of the door and frame as well as with the quality of work. We have had many compliments, are very glad that we chose Sergy for this job and (having had some negative experiences with builders) wouldn't hesitate to hire him for other jobs.

    I hired Sergi, to install 12 sash windows. I had made a mistake with the measurements and they were incredibly difficult to fit.

    Overall I could not be happier with the service and have already hired him again for another two jobs in the house.

    We were delighted with the work done and windows are fabulous.

  • two external doors

    The job was to produce and install two sets of wood exterior doors, replacing the previous cheap PVC ones. We showed Sergy photos of what we wanted - a 1930s style solid oak doors with classic aged stained glass - and he was up for the challenge! Before he started, he drew up detailed measurements, and send them to us for approval.

    There was an extended debate around the style of the stained glass, and he asked the glass maker to come to our house to show us an example - which allowed us to conclude on the discussion. This was very helpful.

    The execution was very precise, and despite carpentry being Sergy's forte, he certainly has skills in other trades which allow the finished product to integrate into the environment. We've now had the doors installed for two weeks and they look phenomenal - they certainly turn heads on our street. We hope they will serve us for years, if not decades to come.

    Highly recommended!

    Excellent work. Highly recommend these guys. The scope of my works expanded quite a lot as I realised that they can be trusted to deliver a quality solution in a reasonable time, so asked them to fix a number of long standing problems in the house which other builders failed at. We discussed the appropriate level of repair in each case and that was exactly what they delivered each time, no "at the last moment i thought this was better, so now pay extra £500" nonsense, which i really appreciated. All the solutions they proposed were sensible and durable, so I am impressed and will be inviting them to other jobs in future.

    I am very pleased with the job that Ernest and Sergy did on this. They were always on time and worked to a high standard.

I had to leave them in the house several times with a key to lock up once they had finished. They were very trust worthy and always left the house in a good condition once they left for the day.

  • Install Internal Flat Front Door

    Excellent job, completed to a great standard and on time.

  • Velux window

    I was very pleased with the work done. They fitted a new shower room, fixed the gutters, painted the outside paintwork, and fixed a damp problem due to a leaking mains pipe under my hall. The shower room part of the job turned out to be bigger than expected because they found quite a few rotting joists under the floor, but they checked with me at each stage what extras I wanted them to do. The quality of their workmanship was good. They arrived punctually and worked all day. They paid attention to detail - for example they laid protective floor coverings to protect the floor in my hall and living room. I would definitely recommend Ernest and Sergy.


    I found Ernest easy to work with - he always called back very quickly on the odd occasion I wanted to speak to him. All the men were polite.

    The job was to redecorate a hall and the second bedroom following a water leak from the flat above. They stripped the wallpaper and redecorated / repainted to a good standard. They were also well priced compared to the other quote I got and turned up on time unlike the other builder so I was glad Ernest was cheaper.

    The work took a little longer than expected but I would prefer it was done properly as was the case.

    I would recommend.

    Ernest & Sergy completed a ceiling and bathroom restoration after a water leak.

  • Installing stud walls to make additional bedroom

    I can highly recommend Ernestas and his team. Our refurbishment inclued installation of stud walls and Velux windows, new radiators, doors and associated electrical/plumbing work. They were punctual, tidy, organized, polite and the quality of their work was very high. I would not hesitate to hire them again.

(This was a big carpentry job and they did well to work around a myriad of electrical cable) Breaking a 2 x 1.5 meter kitchen hatch and supporting with a concrete lintel. Cutting out a 6 meter rotten joist from within a wall and replacing with brick work. Replacing a 5 x 5 meter ceiling and adding new solid insulation. Replastering 150sq meters.

They went above and beyond with helping me move the contents of my flat around, tidied up at the end of each day, and worked hard from start to finish, Monday to Saturday.

    i shall be using them for my next job creating a new bathroom and installing an ensuite and have already got Ernest round for a quote.

    I was very satisfied with the building services offered. Finding a builder was a bit of a stab in the dark and scary as i am new to London but i could see from their previous feedback other customers were equally satisfied. E&S were always punctual and professional in terms of costing and worked industriously throughout the day and the finished job was to an excellent standard. They even obliged our offers of cups and tea and biscuits!!

    if you are in any doubt about hiring E&S then please refer to previous feedback as they are a testament to the level of service offered.

We decided not to hang the pictures in the end (which he adjusted for in the quote) but we did ask for a quote to do some other work. We were impressed by his honesty (questioning why we wanted bespoke built wardrobes as opposed to buying ones to fit) and also his straightforwardness. We will definitely be keeping his details to use again.

He is quiet and courteous, arrives promptly and works steadily (sometimes 10hrs per day) with no coffee breaks (only drinks water - which he brings himself), leaving the area clean at the end of each day. All rubble was promptly removed.
    He was invaluable in helping to choose the units for this small bathroom, and collected the units and tiles himself (saving on delivery charges and ensuring they were available ASAP)
    His workmanship was first class, his price was fair (and did not alter during the job) and he finished ahead of schedule
    I will most certainly use him in the future.

Before the job, the door was sticking and rubbing and the lock wasn't working properly. There was a gap at the bottom and the kick board had become loose and the door was generally in poor shape.

    Afterwards it's immaculate. The door is now re-hung with new hinges. The dents have gone and the warped mouldings and sides are now are precise and true. Ernest recommended and fitted a new high specification lock. The door now fits perfectly and there are no gaps at the top and bottom. Ernest finished the job with a high spec. paint. Looks great.

I will certainly be asking Ernest to do more for me.

  • Hang interior door the other way round

    I have no hesitation in recommending Ernestas. He replied to my post and phone call very promptly and came the next day as arranged. It was a small job to hang a door the opposite way round. He did a neat and tidy job with a terrible door and wonky doorframe and all for a very reasonable price. I will definitely use his services again. Many thanks, Ernestas.
