  • Bathroom and Kitchen Renovation

  • Partial Kitchen Refit

    Guy did an excellent job on this refit. He responded very quickly to my request for a quote and once this was accepted, we were very pleased he was able to fit the job in at short notice. The standard of work and finish is excellent, and Guy explained clearly the details of what he was planning at each stage. The job involved getting a couple of extra parts I hadn't ordered, which Guy managed to source and fit inside the original quote. The overall experience, and the standard of work, was excellent, and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Guy.

  • Install a new Kitchen

    Very dissapointed in Guy Gumbley and his workmanship. We took him on to do a simple refurbishment job.
    He was very very slow - estimated that job at 6-8 weeks and after 23 weeks still not completed.
    He made no attempt to get the job finished in a timely fashion and unfortunately I had no alternative other than to cancel his contract before works completed.
    His work is of a very shoddy nature and I believe he under quoted and under estimated the time the job would take to secure a contract. He then kept reminding me that he was making a loss on the job - not what I would call professional and not my fault.
    I would not reccoment Guy to anyone for even the most simplest of work.
    Beware of this builder!

    guy gumbley's reply:

    The feedback i consider to be misleading and derogatory. The job was terminated by the customer 3 days prior to completion with £5000 outstanding for works and materials , which to this day remains unpaid.
    The original quote was accurate in terms of both time scale and price, however the scope of work constantly increased at the customers request, which led to an increase in time and price all of which was agreed with the customer prior to any additional works being undertaken.
    The criticism of the work standard is a complete fabrication to try and justify the non payment of the outstanding monies and my work standards always remained at the highest level as can clearly be seen by all my previous feedback.

  • Install washing machine and dishwasher

    Gave quote beforehand, fast to respond, helpful

  • Batheroom and kitchen fitting

    good job

  • Decorating & Installing whole 1 bed flat

  • Dishwasher installation

    I was very happy with Guy's work. His initial quote to the job post was not only the lowest but the only one that was simple and fixed (no loopholes for materials, or minimum charges or VAT additions). He came on time and although he discovered that I'll need some additional parts and had to come on the next day again, he charged me exactly as originally quoted. Would highly recommend!

  • New bannister and removal

    Excellent communication, turned up bang on time and completed the job quickly and efficiently. Very happy customer and will defiantly be using Guy again.
    Thank you :)

  • Fit inlet hose to existing pipework

    Turned up bang on time. Friendly, helpful and quick. No problems. Definitely use again. Thanks

  • Fit integrated washing machine into kitchen cupboard

    Guy and his team replaced a kitchen cupboard with a larger one, then fitted and plumbed in an integrated washing machine, with a few days notice!! They were punctual and reliable. It is also obvious that Guy knows about kitchen fitting inside out and has a helpful attitude and can find a ready solution to a problem. Needless to say, the work itself is of a very high standard (Guy also mentioned that he had worked for many years for a well known, high spec kitchen supplier). I would not hesitate to recommend him.
