Single storey extention Extensions
Lewis and his team have been fantastic from start to finish. Lewis was quick to respond, visit and provide a competitive quote – he and Dave, put us at ease on the first visit and remained visible and offered us advice and support throughout the project.
It was unbelievable how quickly Lewis’ team worked – and yet, with this speed they were mindful that we had a young family and did whatever they could to ensure we could still function as a family. This was greatly appreciated. The team were professional and trustworthy, and we are very happy with the extension and the quality of their work.
It was refreshing to deal with builders who not only kept to their word, i.e. no hidden extras, but were sensitive to our family situation and also finished 2 weeks ahead of schedule! I have already recommended Lewis to friends and family and would not hesitate to use Lewis again. Thanks again to all involved – the twins and my wife and I are extremely happy with our new space!

Rear extension + other works Extensions
Lewis and his team were professional from the very start. They completed within the timeframe agreed and within the budget we had set. We had most walls in the house re-plastered, a new bathroom put in and a rear extension built. Lewis was able to advise us on several changes to our house layout due to his extensive experience in the building trade. Lewis was always available to talk to, and we found him to be honest, hardworking and very genuine as a person and as a tradesman.
The work was completed to a very high standard, and we have since recommended lewis and his team to several people who have come to visit us and seen the quality of his work.
We would definitely recommend Lewis and his team to anyone looking for an honest and reliable builder, we will definitely be keeping in contact with him for future works.
Also just to mention Dave the Architect that works with Lewis, he was extremely helpful and also always available to offer advice when we needed it. Dave very kindly managed all our paperwork and dealt with all the legal issues.

We had been thinking about extending our house for a long time but were very anxious about the whole process. Once we had decided to take the plunge, we posted our job, and Lewis responded very quickly. Lewis and his team made the whole process very easy and inspired us with confidence.
Lewis put together a great team for both extension and loft conversion. Everyone worked really hard, were professional and highly skilled. Lewis was always around to oversee the work and keep things on track. The whole project was completed on time and within budget.
We are extremely pleased with the result and would not hesitate to recommend Lewis and his team to anyone looking to renovate or extend their property. A big thank you to everyone involved!

2 Bed Terrace House Refurb, Owner, immediate start Restoration & Refurbishment
I hired Lewis to refurb my 2 bed terrace house. He gave me a competitive quote and had people to start straight away. Tony and Des who carried out most if the work did a great job. As an architect myself I have subsequently noticed a few minor quality issues but overall a good job.
My biggest negative comment is that despite having the whole house rewired I'm left with light fittings that the electrician wanted extra to fit, despite Lewis assuring me he'd get them fitted at No cost. (Im still waiting) Additionally while the guys were trying to get the heating working, they managed to break the boiler casing hinge, which I now need to get repaired.
Notwithstanding the two negatives above I would still recommend Lewis and his team.

Dorma loft conversion in terraced house in romford Loft Conversions
After shopping around, getting quotes and talking to various builders about our loft conversion we decided to give the job to Lewis of UPS home improvements. On first meeting Lewis he came across as likeable but more importantly very knowledgeable. We agreed a price, which was very competitive, and apart from a few extra things that I added, that is the price we paid at the end. Tony and Danny were our main 2 guys, again likeable lads and knew their stuff. The job went as smoothly as a loft conversion in an occupied property could do, even though they were often fighting the elements including a week of snow. They also renewed a small flat roof and pointed my chimney with no charge. The end product was good and my wife and I are very happy with their work. I own my own decorating company that refurbishes 5 star London hotels and I am not easily pleased!! We would highly recommend Lewis and the lads at UPS home improvements

Complete refurbishment to a 3 bed semi Restoration & Refurbishment
Phew! What a whirlwind refurbishment completed on time (6 weeks) and on budget thanks to Lewis Sage and his team from Ups Home Improvments. The house we bought for our return to the UK (we live in the USA at present) was in desperate need of a complete rewire, re-plaster, new bathroom and kitchen. As the house had also been empty for 2 years the back garden was shoulder high with brambles and the front also needed a complete overhaul including a new driveway. What looked like an overwhelming project, Lewis and his team took in their stride and produced a wonderful home for us to return to. I had been dreading managing this project alone, but it turned out I didn’t have to with Lewis’s leadership and his dedicated team. I’m one very, very happy customer.

Unfortunately we couldn't use Lewis as our budgetary constraints prevented us from using his services. But he was very helpful and gave us lots of great advice during our free consultation and further phone conversations. Being newbies we were greatful for his patience and he was happy to explain to us all aspects of the process. As far as tradesmen go his knowledge and experience are second to none.

Kitchen, hallway and living room refurbishment Restoration & Refurbishment
If there was a regulating body to rate this team, they would be graded “outstanding”.
I needed a multi skilled team, as the renovation involved rewiring 3 rooms, knocking down ceilings, plastering, fitting tiles, flooring, kitchen fitting removing/changing skirting boards, door linings, architrails and decorating.
When I found Lewis and his team, I was relieved that he accepted to take on the project within the budget I set myself.
I knew I was lucky when I read and recognised Lewis, who has been interviewed a month before building work was to start as “The tradesman of the month”:https://www.mybuilder.com/blog/tradesman-of-the-month-lewis-sage/
It was not the kind of project where I could stay inside my home, so I was away with no apprehensions of leaving my keys to complete strangers 😉 Thanks to the many positive previous reviews.
Lewis and the team were easy to get on, highly communicative so no major mistakes or anything that couldn’t be corrected on the spot. The team worked hard and fast, but didn’t cut any corners. They are happy people,motivated to work, all team players and complement each other. They bared with my ideas, I knew exactly what I wanted and the finishing is just what I dreamed for the last 5 years, it's not a granny flat anymore.
The payment system was in installments agreed from the beginning so no panic there (deposit + installments and final payment once I was completely happy. It’s been a great experience.A big “merci” to Lewis and his team.

Side and rear single storey extension Extensions
We hired Lewis and his team to carry out our rear and side extension, with knock through of the existing dining room and kitchen to create an open plan kitchen/Diner/Lounge, along with separate utility room and bathroom.
We could not be happier with the high quality of work and the timeline in which this was carried out in, due to our deadline with the arrival of our baby. Lewis was always contactable and communicated throughout the project.
Each stage of the project had specialist individuals, always working together in unison. All the guys were very friendly and we managed to build up a good relation during the project. The team's were always on-site early until late, and were very respectful of us and our neighbours.
I have already recommended Lewis and would not hesitate to use in the future. We feel lucky to have found Lewis and the team.

Dormer Loft conversion Loft Conversions
Lewis and his team have been great. We were at work for the majority of the build and so lewis organised everything. Tony (the main builder) kept us informed of all the progress and any problems that they faced. We were unfortunate not to have a roof during some horrendous weather and Tony came out late to make sure we were water tight for the night! Any snags we had were dealt with quickly and without question. I think we ended only 1 week behind the initial time scale having been held up by weather and asking for some extra work to be done.

Victorian house refurbishment Restoration & Refurbishment
We've just come to the end of our first project with Lewis' team and we're absolutely delighted with the results. In little over 7 weeks, our house has been completely transformed - re-plastering and redecorating throughout, damp proofing, all doors and radiators replaced, new bathroom, built-in cupboards and reconfiguration of upstairs layout. The team worked incredibly hard to make sure we met our goal of being ready in time for Christmas, working quickly but never at the expense of quality of workmanship, which has been excellent.
Throughout the process we found the team to be responsive, flexible, honest and proactive. It's clear that their first priority is to please their client. It also helps that Lewis and Jonny are both very nice guys - easy to deal with and always at the end of the phone. As for the wider team, all of the lads who worked on site day-to-day were friendly and courteous.
All in all, it's been a really positive experience - we'll certainly be using Lewis' team in the future, and we'd highly recommend them to others.

We could not be happier with the new kitchen, it has transformed the ground floor of our townhouse and means we can spend more time together as a family, with space for our baby to play too!

Loft conversion and Full house refurbishment in Romford Loft Conversions
We feel very lucky to have found Lewis and his team to work on our larger than usual project. The job includes converting the loft into 3 beds and a bathroom, open plan kitchen, whole house refurbishment, re-flooring, re-skimming / painting, re-wiring, re-installing central heating system…
Lewis’s team did a wonderful job on everything a very beautiful finish on all the tiny details. A few things we’d like to highlight:
1. The project is completed on time: Lewis manages the whole project very efficiently to make sure things are progressing smoothly, that we, as his client, never had to worry about or chase what should have been done and will be done next
2. The project is completed on budget: given the fact that this is a quite a large project, our job has been completed strictly within the budget and the final cost is unbelievably close to what has been quoted in the beginning
3. The quote is very competitive: Lewis' quote was very reasonable. We also appreciate a lot that even we had a couple of extra things added during the course of project, the prices quoted were also very reasonable
4. The materials provided and used are all in good quality: Lewis tried his best to make sure all the materials they provided or used were in good quality
5. The final product our new house is in top quality: we now have a beautiful new house thanks to Lewis and his team (Jonny and lads, Simon, Chris and all)
It’s been a superb experience working with Lewis and everyone in his team!

Project management / refurbishment job Restoration & Refurbishment
We hired Lewis to renovate our two bedroom flat, which we imagined would be a quick renovation job. However, after peeling back the top layers of the building, this ended up being a far bigger project than any of us expected. It was an incredibly demanding and consuming project for us, with many obstacles and delays along the way - most of which I should add were created by us. However, Lewis was always incredibly patient and supportive, and most importantly the job was finished really well. We're super happy with the completed work and I'd definitely recommend.

Loft conversion with dormer Loft Conversions
Lewis has just finished a big job for us, including a loft conversion with en suite bathroom and dormer, lowering ceilings on existing 1st floor, refurbishing current bathroom, and redecorating entire house. Lewis has been a pleasure to work with. He's always made himself available on the phone and in person, and dealt quickly and professionally with any issues or changes by us. His team (Tom & Dan in particular) are polite, friendly and also very tidy, and they really have taken the stress out of what has been a messy and disruptive job. Most importantly, the quality of the work is top notch, and the original quote + added extras was very fair. Inevitably with this type of job, extra work becomes necessary, but Lewis never tried to rip us off and he always provided a quick and fair quote before starting on any extra work. All in all, we are extremely happy with the quality of the work and would highly recommend Lewis and his team.

House Renovation Restoration & Refurbishment
We chose Lewis and his team to undertake a full renovation of our Victorian terrace, including a side return extension. It was a big job and had a few hick ups in terms of a planning permission issue which meant a three month delay in the build (council related not Lewis). Lewis stuck with us and even though it was then challenging to fit our build in with others, he got the job done. As first time renovators we were often quite indecisive but Lewis was patient and would make suggestions to help us. Highly communicative and if he can't answer the phone he gets straight back to you. The team were awesome. All very friendly and polite and good at what they do. We had a few snagging points at the end (to be expected) but these were dealt with quickly and easily. I recommend Lewis and his team for future work!

Lewis, Toby and Mike did a brilliant job with the loft conversion. They have transformed it in a very enjoyable room with its en suite and they exceeded our expectations in creating additional storage within the remaining space under the roof. They even managed to bring more natural light into the staircase by revisiting the architect plan.
A very big thanks to Toby's team for their hard work.
The extension and refurbishment was a really challenging stage for our family as we were living in the house while the work was happening. Lewis and his team were really understanding and done their best to accommodate us.
Everyone who worked on the project were very nice people, hardworking, trustworthy and reliable workers.
We highly recommend Lewis' services if you are planning similar size project and that you have very specific design requirements.
A special thanks to James who has been key in delivering high quality carpentry work and who has built our fantastic new decking, Michael who has decorated the whole house, Eusebio and Antone who have been brilliant in building our extension, Johnny who managed the ground work in speedy manner, Tomek and Adam who were very professional in redesigning our entire plumbing system, Joe who has done a wonderful job with our bathrooms tiling, Lewis for being my crying shoulder when the pressure was becoming too high and keeping the project going, Rey, Chris, Craig, Lee, Shaun and all the others who put their effort into our project.

Comprehensive works on 2-bed terraced house Restoration & Refurbishment
We needed a complete renovation of a 2 bedroom mid-terrace house, including: new windows, changing wall configuration, new kitchen and bathroom, plastering, central heating installation, rewiring, and fitting of new laminate flooring.
Lewis and his team did an absolutely fantastic job on renovating our house. From the very beginning, he put us at ease about the work that we needed to have done which immediately made us feel very confident about his capacity to deliver. Lewis was always ready to answer questions, very communicative with any updates or changes, and very flexible with any changes from our side. The work was finished to a high standard in a very short timeframe, and at a reasonable cost.
Lewis even provided some advice on modifications that could improve our plans for the house such as an open landing area. His team were very professional and friendly, and on many occasions we had a direct line to them so we could track daily progress. We would not hesitate to recommend Lewis and his team to anyone for future jobs (and have already done so), and we would contact him first if we need more work done in the future.

5 Bed Detached House - Damp Proofing Damp Proofing
Very highly recommend Daniel from UPS Home Improvements. I had another so called well reviewed "damp proofing specialist" from My Builder come in and quote unnecessary damp proofing work running into thousands of pounds. Daniel carries professional equipment to detect damp as opposed to those hand held devices, which are not built to detect rising damp. Not only did he advise no damp proofing work was required, he was kind enough to explain what remedial work was required directly to my decorator and gave me an indicative costs as well so I know what to expect. This is truly going over and beyond his role despite making no income from this specific job he was shortlisted for. I believe this sort of professionalism, whilst may hurt his short term prospects, places him in good stead in the long run and if you are ever in need of damp inspection, please do give him a call!

Damp problem in semi-detached bungalow Damp Proofing
Can't recommend enough. Daniel came round, didn't charge the survey fee as my nan is 87 and gave us a completely honest opinion. He told us it wasn't a structural/damp problem, it's actually just condensation and should be sorted by just ventilating the room. He could've quite easily told us it was a rising damp problem, as that's what we thought, and had himself a nice little job and a few quid out of it. But he was very honest and I'm very grateful for that.

Refurbishment of 2 Bedroom Victorian Flat, Romford Restoration & Refurbishment
Lewis and his team have recently completed the renovation and refurbishment of my 2 bedroom Victorian maisonette. At short notice, Lewis was able to get tradesmen on site as soon as I said go.
Lewis' team are friendly and professional and work quickly but diligently to produce a high standard of finish. Our project has included the replacement of all windows, removal of structural walls, new stud walls, fitting of kitchen and 2 new bathrooms, installation of new boiler, rewiring, laying new floors, plastering and painting of all walls as well as the fitting of new skirting and coving throughout. Lewis has co-ordinated the team well, ensuring that works are carried out in a logical order with multiple tradesmen on site to speed up the process where possible.
The works have been carried out in accordance with the agreed price, and any extras which I have requested along the way have been reasonably priced. We believe we have received excellent value for money.
The high levels of competence from Lewis and his team has enabled me to relax and focus on my own work on a day to day basis, without worrying about what is taking place in my home.
We have been so impressed with the work Lewis has carried out, that we have already passed his number to a friend. We wouldn’t hesitate in asking Lewis to carry out future works to our property.
Big thanks to Lewis and the team – you really have transformed what was a neglected and run down space into a beautiful new home.

regia - 4th Dec, 2014 Waiting for feedback
Dan and Matt were fantastic.
We needed most rooms in our victorian london terrace plastered after a full re-wire a lot of renovation.
Needless to say the other tradesmen had done their work but the place looked like a building site.
Dan and Matt were able to make the place look like new, they were exceptionally clean and professional leaving a finish on our walls/ceilings I didn't think was possible.
It's important to note that squaring up a 100 year old victorian in london is damn near impossible. Very impressive.
Many thanks to them. They've already been recommended twice by me. Keep up the good work lads i'll be in touch with the next job soon.

Modernising property Restoration & Refurbishment
Our home required extensive modernisation and renovation throughout the property which included; knocking down walls, rebuilding walls, building an understairs toilet, new kitchen and bathroom, remodelling the staircase, new flooring, re-decorating, re-plumbing and re-wiring of our home and modernising our shed. It was a big task and we interviewed 6 companies before deciding whom to go with.
Lewis was very professional from the beginning, gave us a price for the work [which was in the middle range of quotes we had received]; an estimated timeline of the works and he completed the work to the pre-agreed deadline. Any problems that arose during and after the project he promptly arranged for one of his team to fix.
My wife had a clear vision of how our home would look once completed and Lewis really has impressed us with the management, the hardwork of his team and the finishing. My wife has gotten her dream home and is very much in love with all that has been done to our home because Lewis truly listened to what we wanted to achieve. Everyone that comes to our home compliments the works completed on our home.
We would highly recommend the services of UPS Home Improvements to family and friends and several friends have asked for his details so as to initiate enquiries about works to their own homes.

Decorating 3 bedroom house Painting & Decorating
We asked Lewis and his team to redecorate our three bed house, including the main rooms on both floors, hallway and bathroom. They have done an absolutely fantastic job and the end results are superb. From the outset Lewis provided a quote straight away and organised his team very well with minimum disruption. Micky and the lads were great, they did a brilliant job throughout the whole house, plastering, painting and papering the bedrooms, front room and hallway to a very high standard. The team were always early and worked very hard throughout the whole time and a pleasure to work with. Lewis, as project manager, was great to deal with, took on board all our requirements, and was always on the end of the phone at all times to co-ordinate everything to deal with our many requests. Fantastic job, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends, colleagues and family. Thank you Lewis and the team.

House Refurbishment in Plumstead Restoration & Refurbishment
We completed the purchase of our Victorian house on 12th January. On the 13th we met Lewis on site and by the end of the week a second skip was full. This remained the pace of the project. The team is fantastic! We found them to be multi-skilled and very hard working. Some Saturdays and Sundays we turned up at the house to discover it full of workmen! We always found them very courteous and we knew we could trust them to do an excellent job. We had quite a few of the windows replaced and all the house was re-plastered. The original plaster mouldings in the hallway were lovingly restored just because the painters were doing their job, not because we had specially asked them to do it. It’s this attention to detail and dedicated teamwork that has made what was a very dark building with terrible rising damp, no central heating and requiring re-wiring in to a beautiful, light and warm high-spec house. We are over the moon! We have never had such a good experience with a team of builders. It was the first time we’ve ever done such a major building project and it actually ended up being fun because they were easy to communicate with and very responsive when we had any queries. We are now looking around for another project so that we can do the same again with Lewis and the team. We have already been recommending them to all our friends.

2 bedroom ground floor period flat make over Restoration & Refurbishment
We hired Lewis and his team to take on our 2 bedroom garden flat just before our baby was born. It was a big job, a whole refurbishment for the flat with a deadline. Lewis was very fast to respond and was able to start very quickly to make sure everything was complete before our little one arrived.
Lewis, true to his word, got all of his boys onto our flat pretty much seven days a week working really long hours to get the job done (sometimes 8am till 11pm!). They finished off 99% of the work before my wife was due. The work that was done was not rushed, but done to a high standard through long hours and hard work and looks fantastic. About two months after our baby was born we had his boys over to finish the last few jobs which he promised he'd do when we were settled and ready.
Some issues came up along the way, but with a job as big as ours it had to be expected. No matter what it was, Lewis was always there to sort things out for us without taking short cuts. He came through with everything and delivered 120% of what was agreed. Never complained or avoided issues that arose. Always willing to work out the best solution with us if anything came up.
He's got a personal team of great guys who all have their specialties, all who did a great job and were friendly and on board with myself and Lewis and were able to work around problems and come up with excellent solutions along the way.
Our home looks amazing now! Highly recommend Lewis and his team! Thanks Lewis!

Two flats, 50sqm and 80sqm need painting Painting & Decorating
We were getting redecorated two flats in Canary Wharf, a one-bedroom and a two-bedroom. In the 2 bedroom, the jobs included painting the walls/ ceilings, designing/ installing a kitchen and putting in wooden floor . The one bedroom was just painted and had some kitchen appliances swapped. Lewis managed the project well and execution was to a high standard, so would use him again. In terms of constructive feedback: it took a bit longer than we originally thought, but then again, that this is not unusual with these type of projects. Worth checking everything at the end of the projects as we found a few small things that needed fixing, which Lewis however did very quickly.

Refurbishment of 2-bedroom flat Restoration & Refurbishment
I hired Lewis to completely refurbish a run-down two bedroom flat, including re-wiring, installing a new boiler and radiators, re-plastering, installing new flooring, fitting a new kitchen and bathroom, replacing all joinery and redecorating throughout.
After agreeing a price Lewis was able to be flexible regarding the start date, which was very helpful for me as I was yet to complete the purchase of the property at the time (in fact his team were able to start immediately following completion - saving me both time and money). Lewis himself is affable and was generally responsive throughout the project, and the tradesmen he sent round were helpful and approachable, particularly his plumber, Lee.
Towards the end of the project I did feel the need to keep a closer eye on things and make a list of issues that needed addressing. To his credit Lewis ensured that those issues were seen to where necessary (albeit he seemed under some pressure to get his guys out of the property, so there were still a few jobs for me to see to after handover) and, overall, the property has been transformed into a stylish modern home that is a pleasure to live in. Furthermore, the project was completed within a reasonable timeframe, for the agreed price (with some extras being negotiated as the project went on) and all the necessary certifications/paperwork were provided as promised. Thank you Lewis.

Property refurbishment and decoration Painting & Decorating
I hired Lewis for the refurbishment of a 3 storey Victorian terraced house which I intend to let. He responded quickly to my post and started work as soon as we had agreed on terms. Lewis is professional, honest, helpful and always on hand to help sort out problems and give advice. Without exception, every tradesman Lewis has sent to my house has been friendly, courteous and hardworking, often working very long days and even coming in at weekends to ensure that things get finished. I was very impressed by their commitment to the job. The work on the house included stripping back the whole house, including bringing down and redoing the ceiling on the upstairs landing and knocking down a wall in the kitchen. The entire house was replastered. New skirtings, floorboards and some new doors and windows were required. A new bathroom was created in a different part of the house and a new kitchen was installed. Tiling included hall and kitchen floors, bathroom and kitchen walls. An engineered wooden floor was laid. The house was redecorated throughout - both inside and out. A number of rental agents have been to see the property and all of them commented on the high standard of work. I would definitely recommend Lewis and his team. It has been a pleasure working with them.

Refurb on Victorian Terrace house Restoration & Refurbishment
I hired Lewis and his team to complete a refurb on a 2 bed property in Catford. Lewis delivered on all of his promises and then some. Once we agreed terms, the team set about the work and finished within the agreed time frame despite an unforeseen case of damp in the kitchen which was fixed.
All of the tradesman from the team were friendly and completed their work to a high standard.
As we were awaiting new tenants and no longer live in the area, I needed a builder who could go in and get on with the job without me having to travel back and forth from Bristol to check. Lewis was always available when needed and communicated throughout the process so it made no difference that I wasn’t there. Due to his vast experience, Lewis made sensible and practical suggestions in order to keep cost down and provide a better finish.
My wife and I were delighted with the results when we visited the property at the end.
Definitely one of the best experiences I have had when dealing with builders. Lewis is friendly, knowledgeable and I would definitely recommend to friends and family. Fantastic job!

Victorian terrace, new bathroom/kitchen/decorating Restoration & Refurbishment
Lew and the team transformed my house over the summer. It was bought as a Victorian 5 bedroom house, untouched for 30+ years and in desperate need of a complete renovation. Lew was incredibly proactive right from the start of the project, no job became too little or too big for him to sort out. I'm a girl in my early 30's with no experience of renovations. The team was so patient with me, really really lovely guys that took care of me during the whole project, especially as I was living there during the work. They even looked after the cat whilst I was away. It lasted 3 months but every wall, window and floor board was replaced in some form. It was re-piped, the heating replaced, full electric upgrade, a new bathroom which was moved from the old location, a new kitchen, walls knocked out and new in/out flow created to the garden. All was done at a really high standard, I'm so pleased with how it has turned out and couldn't be happier to call it home now. Was a fixed price which made budgeting easy, no additions or hidden costs at all. Have recommended Lew and the team to friends, neighbours and colleagues already, happy to speak or show pictures to anyone that would like more details. Great guys and very professional.

He has an extensive team of tradesmen ranging from carpenters to plasterers and decorators.

Lewis swiftly stepped in and fixed the problems and the end result is fantastic. He was always available on the phone to talk through updates and next steps and always willing to go the extra mile.

We needed a complete refurbishment on a very “tired” property we recently purchased, and were stretched for cash. This included plastering, tiling, painting (including ceilings, doors, walls and radiators, ), bathroom installation, wall papering and a general update. Lewis worked hard to accommodate my finical restrictions, he was patient whilst the sale of my house went through and then started as promised with a clear schedule to meet a deadline we had tied him too. I had a six tradesmen attending various aspects of the work. Every single one of them was tidy, well mannered, attentive, punctual, reliable and most of all brilliant at what they do. The house had not been worked on for over forty years which presented several problems, all of which they overcame by simply applying more effort and time to ensure that I was still able to move in by the date required, and all without a grumble (well until I was out of earshot anyway!).Every step of the way I was made to feel that what I was trying to achieve was as important to them as it was and has been to me. After dreaming of my silly little place and how I wanted it to look for so long, I am quite overwhelmed with the results, and recommend UPS without hesitation.

General decoration & other of 2 bed flat Painting & Decorating
I hired UPS Home Improvements to re-decorate my two bed flat, replace a bath & some vinyl flooring and fit some dimmers. Whilst they were the most expensive quote I received, Lewis, the Project Manager, was very personable and professional from the outset and along with that and the reviews I had already read, I knew I would get a great job done. I was not disappointed. The guys had to remove a dado rail and some wooden panelling in all rooms. The walls were then skimmed and painted. The job they did is amazing. I fully expected to see parts of the walls where the panelling had been but you can hardly see it in some rooms and in the lounge area in particular you would never even know what state the walls had been in before. A really superb job and finish. The workers were also very personable and trustworthy and I had no hesitation in effectively moving out for a week and handing over my keys. They really went the extra mile, including doing some other odd jobs like fixing some lighting in my kitchen. As you would expect there have been a few snagging bits to sort out and Lewis has been really great in helping to resolve those.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for pretty much any job and there is only one very extremely minor thing I would say is that it's probably worth getting your own paint to ensure there is not mix up on colours or finishes. Overall, money well spent and am really pleased with the outcome.

I don't normally get round to writing reviews but I have to say that I have been thoroughly impressed with Lewis and his team from start to finish. Going with Ups Home improvements was one of the best decisions we’ve made in our renovation work. From the beginning they gave us good and honest advice about what they would recommend doing with certain parts of our renovations and were thorough when going through the work that we were asking them to do.
The team were extremely flexible - we had a tight deadline before Christmas and they did everything that they could to get stuff done. We were really happy with everyone we met and Lewis kept things ticking over brilliantly. Everyone was very friendly and answered all of our questions (of which there were many!). We had a number of things done in the first phase of our renovation and each one was done to a high standard (my Dad is an architect with over 30 years experience and he was also impressed with the quality of the work). The work included: Plastering (incl skimming ceilings), Tiling (looks great), installation of engineered wooden floor, skirting boards, installation of bath, shower, sink. This was all done in a short space of time and we are really happy with the work. Will be using them again, highly recommend.

Redecorate bedroom, small kitchen & two small hallways Painting & Decorating
Lewis and his team have just completed the redecoration of our flat and done an amazing job. We hired him to paint a number of rooms and adjoining spaces that included a few tricky areas to navigate. This was no problem, including removing and reattaching a large shelving unit. He provided sound advice and was always flexible.
Aside from the excellent level of finish, what made this job special was that it was completed whilst we were on holiday in America. This was our first time using MyBuilder and were understandably cautious in our approach. Lewis always made us feel at ease and reassured us that our property would be in safe hands. During our holiday we slept well having every confidence in Lewis.
Overall he was prompt, competitive and kept to his word. It was a genuine pleasure to work with him. We will be recommending him to our friends too.

Painting and decorating in SE4 Painting & Decorating
We needed our new home redecorated from top to bottom and hired Lewis and the guys at UPS to do the work based on the positive feedback they have received. I have to say, they more than justify the praise. They quality of their work is top notch, they are extremely polite and attentive to detail, and they go above and beyond to make sure you are happy with their work.
Lewis is complete gentleman and totally trustworthy - his word is his bond. If he says he will sort something out, rest assured he will do it. The boys worked nearly round the clock to ensure everything was ready for us when we moved in. We were very, very pleased with the result and will definitely work with them again. We can't recommend UPS highly enough. Whether it's plastering, painting, plumbing or anything in between, UPS delivers. A big thank you to Lewis and the boys!

Garage conversion Conversions - General
I have decided to hire Lewis and his team to convert my garage into another bedroom after reading a plethora of positive reviews submitted by other homeowners commenting on the efficiency and reliability of his team. I have not been dissapointed. The conversion looks splendid, I am very happy with it and the process that got it there! The builders were punctual and very polite and always cleaned after themselves. I have been always informed in advance on whom and when to expect. We kept to the budget and to the time frame. Lewis was very responsive if I had any queries or needed advice on any building issues. The disruption to the rest of the house was kept to a minimum and the decorator even helped with some finishing touches. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you for the great job done.

Painting a new refurbished flat, East London Painting & Decorating
I had a tricky decorating job on a newly renovated flat with new plastering and joinery done by other tradesmen. There were a lot of loose ends and imperfections that needed tidying up with the carpentry and plaster, it wasn't a straight forward job. Right from the start, Lewis was extremely positive and solution orientated. Other tradesmen I have dealt with always wanted to um and ah and tell me why the work I needed was so very tricky, making obscure statements and baffling me with trade specific language. Not Lewis, he just told me he could sort it - simple as that. He promised to make the flat look beautiful and he stuck to his word. The place looks fantastic. Along the way, there were issues that cropped up as is always the case, but Lewis was always on hand to help and advise with an enthusiastic and personable manner that exuded confidence and gave peace of mind. I really enjoyed dealing with Lewis on this job.

Interior painting 1000sq ft 2 bed flat to F&B spec Painting & Decorating
After I waited weeks for another painter to start and was eventually let down, Lewis stepped in and offered to start the job the following week - which was only a few days away. His team arrived on time Monday morning, efficiently captured the plan and even collected the paint for me from the local F&B showroom.
The Farrow and Bell colour specification involved a lot of detailed cutting in of contrasting colours on built-in shelving. Nizar, the architect/decorator, spent days of concentrating in silence doing this cutting in by hand and the result looks fantastic! He was a total perfectionist and even worked a weekend to do it to his self-imposed high standards.
The overall finish as well as other detailing in and around cupboards, doors, skirting has also been done to a really high standard and I'm really impressed.
The team were always polite, courteous, flexible when necessary and extremely professional. I would definitely recommend to others - if you have a detailed or complex job that needs to be done well, these are the guys.

Two bad flat needs painting and touching up Painting & Decorating
Lewis came in to help me finish this job after another builder failed to complete the job. In doing this he really helped me out. So much so that he ended up doing a second flat for me as well.
Both flats needed full decorations with plastering, painting, tiling, plumbing, carpentry, window fitting, garden landscaping, electrical works and we even ended up fitting a new roof! The work on both properties was complete to a high standard.
As is often the case with these projects, as we progressed we found that more things needed to be done or that things needed to be done in a different way. Lewis and his team were flexible all along and accommodated requests immediately which really helped.
Lewis and his team are honest and hard working. I would recommend them to anyone getting working done and will give them first refusal on any work i have done in the future.

Plaster front room and hallway Plastering
Lewis from UPS helped from start to finish. I had been let down by another plasterer and Lewis was able to be flexable and accomodate my needs. Lewis was explained how his standards were high and that his tradesmen working for him were of the highest standard.
Lewis met his workman on the day and explained what was required and made sure that they know what was expected. At the end of the project Lewis would come around and make sure that the work done was completed to a high standard.
The work was so good that me and my wife asked for painting to be done as well. Again Lewis made sure that from start to finish every thing was done to an high standard.
I will be using Lewis again in the future as we need more plastering done and I would recommend using him to my family and friends.

Daniel inspired confidence when he came to do the quote and made sure the work was done to my satisfaction when he returned to remove the waste left by the plasterer.
The only thing I would say is be clear about your requirements and make sure the plasterer is too. I had specified the exact size of hole to be left for the fireplace and the plasterer was unaware of this. To be fair it was quite a while after the quote that I was ready for the work to be done.
Would use again.

Need painter asap, 4 bedrooms Painting & Decorating
We've hired Lewis and his team after our previous contractor disappeared a week before commencing job. I am glad we did. Lewis was in touch nearly everyday checking status of the work and taking constant feedback as we were progressing, as well as taking on additional jobs that emerged in the process. We probably had 6 different people working on our house at different stages but all of them were pleasure to have around and as non disruptive as possible whilst we were going on with our everyday life. We are happy with the quality of the workmanship, and felt at all times that we are in good hands. Will be keen on using their services in the future when/if needed.

Lay engineered wood flooring, paint flat, and misc Painting & Decorating
We have so much to say about Lewis and his team, and it's all positive!
Lewis came back to us with a quote faster than any other tradesman we've dealt with, literally a couple of hours after we had met. He was very transparent about how much each job would cost us and gave a very fair quote.
The work started soon after and we can't say enough about how great the guys were. They completed our painting and decorating to a very high standard. The decorator was a perfectionist and it shows in the way he'd touch up areas and look at the wall from different angles to ensure it looked great all round. We used really bold colors like dark red and a glossy purple and where the color met a white edge, the lines were immaculate!
As for the carpenter and his team who installed our wooden flooring and a new sink/tap and completed the plumbing for our dishwasher. Again, lovely trustworthy guys with an impressive attention to detail. Everything was completed to a very high standard and they took special care to look after our furniture and everything was as we had left it at the end of each day.
Will definitely call on Lewis and his fantastic team should we ever require any further work done and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to family and friends.
Thank you so much for making our home beautiful :)

Our experience with Lewis and all his tradesmen has been fantastic. Lewis has been a star, guiding us through every step (not knowing much about DIY!), helping source material, advising, being flexible and just general a nice guy! It was great to find someone who could manage every aspect of the work we needed. Lewis and his tradesmen were all really lovely people which is what we were so particularly happy with, we have been able to trust them, leaving them in our new home to get on with the work.
We requested a quote months ago thinking we were just about to exchange/complete, Lewis responded on the same day i posted the quote and immediate came across as friendly, honest and someone that feels that high quality (and value) is important. We were delayed, and delayed on our move in date and Lewis was extremely flexible and understanding. Once moved they started work straight away.
We had plastering of 6 artex ceilings and 2 full bedrooms by the lovely Marcus, Decorating of 3 bedrooms, including some wallpapering, landing, stairs, hallway and porch by Paul (in the main) and carpentry of new wooden floors in the bedrooms by Moussa. All the work was done to a very high standard and they all made a huge effort to keep the house as tidy as possible, Paul even mopped up after himself! They also worked weekends to fit the work in.
Our new home is looking so lovely and we are really very happy with the work and the choice we made in using Lewis and his team. Thank you Lewis.

I posted the job on this site and received a call from the lovely Lewis who was prompt with providing me a quote. I was a little daunted as a single parent my funds are limited but I still wanted a quality finish. A quote was provided and I advised Lewis I would come back to him (as he was not the cheapest) but he was friendly understanding and approachable and that meant more to me than the cost.
Due the a typical English summer there was a brief rain delay but I was promised the team would return Sunday morning to complete the agreed work at 8 am and they did. I happiness with the work was important to them and that meant a lot.
The team were prompt professional and done a great job. The outside looked horrid to me but has been completely transformed by their hard work. I now have a sense of pride about my home I am so pleased I hired this firm for the job.

LEWIS AND HIS TEAM DELIVERED A TRULY OUTSTANDING QUALITY OF SERVICE AND WORKMANSHIP WITH VERY COMPETITIVE PRICES. We had a few quotes, but we went with Lewis because of his experience in this trade, his great reviews on mybuilder.com and the feeling that we could trust him. We had a full refurbishment project consisting of decorating by stripping, skimming and painting; carpentry with new doors throughout, engineered wood flooring and new skirting boards; we had to refresh the bathroom by re-grouting and resealing; the garage floor and door repaired. The quality of work is amazing; even the estate agents who came to revalue our property commented on the quality of work, they said the place had been done by professionals at very high standard. Throughout Lewis gave us advice and also saved us money by purchasing some materials on his traders accounts, therefore passing the discounts to us as we only reimbursed him on the amount paid. Lewis was always on call or email whenever we needed to contact him and always responded within minutes of leaving him messages. His builders, decorators and carpenters always cleaned up after themselves each evening as we were still living in the property while the work was being done. Every evening we came back it was just to put the kids to bed without having to clean up. They kept the outside of the property very clean too. Our neighbours told us how courteous and polite they were too. Our friends and family have already asked for his contact.

Really happy with the job; got a fair few quotes in but Lewis’s offer seemed the best value. Key thing was the amount of time they spent to make sure they did a QUALITY JOB. Others offered to do the job in 3/4 days whereas these guys spent two weeks making sure it was a top job rather than rushing it. Only a little bit pricier than the other offers but when you look at the ROI for spend Vs. time/quality of work I'm really happy I chose them rather than one of the alternatives.

I would also not hesitate to highly recommend him to any of my family or friends. Thank you once again to both of you for all your hard work and help.

Hall and stairway and landing area skimmed Plastering
Really happy with the job. Danny and Ben (?) both turned up each day bang on time and left the place tidy after. Standard of work is great and will be using then again in the future. Unlike other people they worked when it was convenient for the customer which is a great trait. Price was good and even when I wanted a couple of extra bits done it didnt cost the earth, nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended.

Plaster walls and ceiling Plastering
Daniel came round promptly to quote the job, giving a friendly and professional first impression. There were some slight changes but Daniel gave an immediate re-quote which was highly competitive. A date was arranged and the work completed on time, cleanly and to good standard. Skylight Plasteres will now be my first port of call for any similar work. I only used Mybuilder out of desperation having been let down by someone else but I would now wholeheartedly recommend it.

Hi, I posted job on sunday, as I was working Danny arranged to meet me after my shift to view kitchen & do quote that evening. I gave Danny a rough idea of what I wanted to be done & what I hoped to achive. I asked for his feedback & advice. Danny was very honest (no bullshit) & you could tell he knew what he was talking about. Danny contacted me with a quote the next day as promised & I agreed to get the work done as I was pleased with the quote which was very reasonable & he said it would take 2 1/2 days.
I arranged with Danny to start the following Tuesday.
Danny arrived prompt the tues morning sheeted up the whole area, prepped & worked solidly the whole day. I popped out for a couple of hours & was really suprised at how much work he had got done whilst I was out. Danny is a hard working grafter & very professional . He worked solidly the whole time he was here. Now my kitchen is not an averge sized kitchen it is quite large, Danny plastered the whole room top to bottom as well as the ceiling. I am so pleased with what Danny has done, his standard of work is very high. You can tell Danny really enjoys & takes pride in his work. He was just as excited as me with the finished results. I would recommend Danny to anyone & am definately going to call him back to do some more plastering work in the future. Once again thanks Danny for a great job & all the hard work we are so pleased. Regards Jas.

Plaster rooms 11ft x 11ft and 6ft x 6ft Plastering
Excellent service throughout.
He was quick to get in touch after I posted the job to plaster a couple of rooms and came to provide a quote. He came across as honest and genuinely knowledgeable and offered a number of suggestions on how to approach the job.
He provided some quotes for the different options by SMS that same evening. His was competitive and by far the best qualified of the bunch so I accepted the quote and Danny sent me a formal one by email.
We agreed a start date and confirmed the duration (4 days).
Danny and Ben turned up on time, were very neat and tidy laying dust sheets to protect surfaces and cleaned up each night (my wife was very impressed having seen a number of builders come and go over the years). He finished with time to spare and the quality of the work was excellent.
I can’t recommend Danny highly enough. Many thanks!

Wonderful service from start to finish.
Contact was very prompt
Arrived on time and got straight on with the job.
Left no mess at all.
There really is nothing to fault at all.
A genuinely nice person. I would definitely recommend Danny and I'm sure I will use him again if I need anything plastered in the future.

Dan has just finished plastering my entire house - all walls and ceilings and did an excellent job. I'll definitely use him again.
His work was very neat and precise, giving a high quality finish; however, since I don't know much about plastering I asked my brother-in-law who is a builder (and knows his stuff) to inspect Dan's handy work. He confirmed that Dan had done a fantastic job.
What was more impressive was the price. I had a number of quotes from various tradesmen and Dan's was the best by far. VERY competitive. And, the price he quoted for me did not change even though a few extra bits and pieces cropped up whilst he was doing the job. So no nasty surprises.
In terms of his work, Dan was professional from the start. He turned up on time every day and cleaned up after he had finished. During the job he kept the place tidy, covering everything up with dust sheets and kept the mess to a minimum.
Additionally, Dan went out of his way to plaster my entire bathroom - even though I hadn't originally wanted it done (but later found out that it needed to be done). Even though my request was very last minute, Dan managed to squeeze me in and finished it to a brilliant standard, working on his day off so that my walls would dry on time for the decorators.
On top of all that i found him to be a really nice guy. Friendly, reliable and honest. Highly recommended!!

DC Building was very prompt in replying to my post and responded with clear information and a very competitive and honest quote.
Danny was very happy to discuss the job and provide details of the work involved. He provided a range of possible dates to complete the work, making himself available as soon as possible.
Danny offered to arrive early on the day so that we could meet and we could talk through what was required. It was all made very easy and before I had left for work 15 mins later he was already progressing with preparing the room. Tea, coffee etc was offered but he was much happier to start the work. Before starting anything he made sure that there were dust sheets down in any place he may step, making sure the house was still clean and tidy once he had finished.
I was very happy with the quality of work completed by Danny. The ceiling and all of the walls look great. We certainly have more projects to do in the future and I will be more than happy asking Danny to come back and make our other rooms look as nice as the one he has just finished.

Skimming bedroom 4m x 3m Plastering
Danny and Del were professional, friendly and did a sterling job plastering our bedroom. Their quote was competitive and they even fixed some broken skirting in the room at no additional cost. They tidied up after they had finished and helpfully told me how to apply the first coat of paint onto new plaster even though I hadn't asked - to be honest I wouldn't have known if they hadn't thought to advise me. I am really happy with the job they have done and how efficiently they worked. I happily recommend Danny and Del and I will definitely use them again in future.

I can only say good things about Dan and the team the plastered my property. He was very helpful with both advise on plastering and other aspects of refurbishment my property. He explained how the process would work and worked around my needs.
The plastering was done to a very high standard. All the walls and ceilings we left clean and smooth the touch.
I would have no hesitation in highly recommending or using Dan again.
