  • Hip to Gable loft conversion/dormer

    When I first hired Marius to do my loft I was very nervous however I looked at the reviews met him and thought lets go with it. Marius and his team are professional, friendly, tidy and he kept me updated all the time. Its so nice to hire a builder who is not a cowboy, no nonsense and gets the job done. I was really impressed in the time they finished the job which was earlier than expected even my neighbours were commenting on how quickly they finished. I just want to say thank you Marius and the team and look forward to working on more of my projects in the near future.

  • Repair/ replace roof tiles

    Excellent responsiveness, easy to deal with, got the work done quickly and to quote.

  • Single story rear extension in Tooting London

    Go Gondolier constructed our single storey rear extension and made substantial internal changes including installation of our kitchen and bathroom.

    Simon and his team promised to complete all works within 6 weeks which was half the time we were quoted by all other contractors we spoke to. We were amazed when he met this deadline and we were very impressed with the standard of his work too.

    Simon was always incredibly quick to respond to calls and texts which saved us tons of stress throughout the build. He also kept our neighbour's onside throughout the process which was a huge plus.

    His straightforward and direct approach is exactly what we were after and it meant that decision were made very quickly.

    Simon whole team worked incredibly hard and we are extremely happy with them and the finished product

  • Rear extension

    Was very happy with the work - single storey extension. Was quoted 5 to 6 weeks to build and it was built in 3.5 weeks. They worked late many times and all of the team were good to deal with. They went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with the result. Would definitely recommend.

  • New 2 bed 2 bath L shaped loft extension

    Simon and his guys did a very good job on our quite complicated loft extension in an incredibly quick time to an excellent standard. Overall we are very happy with the job he did but the down side to the speed that Simon expected the job to be completed in was that he was very inflexible to any alterations at all once something was done (even when they weren't done as per drawings supplied.) I would recommend gogondolier as Simon demands a high standard from his team, but make sure you're ready with exact layout details, bathroom equipment and important decisions at a moment's notice!

  • Single storey 3m extension on our 1920s home

    Simon & his team built us a new kitchen-diner, utility, wc & patio. We won't be the first to marvel when Simon quoted us a 6 wk build time (all others quoting min. 12 wks for same price). Naturally, he completed it even quicker.

    The pace Simon & his team work & the quality of his workmanship are remarkable - but it is these guys' work ethic that really blew us away.

    Simon provided a quote early, arrived on time to initial meetings & during build he & his team (up to 8 guys) would be started by 8.20. He was always at the end of the phone in case of query - even post-build, when we had a glitch with a radiator - someone was with us to sort it within an hour.

    One warning - whilst Go Gondolier works incredibly quickly, a lot of suppliers don't! We're still waiting on our bi-folds & it was touch-&-go that our flooring would arrive in time. So - be prepared. There are no checklists for a 6 week build so make sure you've thought everything out beforehand (including lighting etc) as you'll need fast turnarounds on decisions. That said, it was well worth it in the end :)

    I shared our build progress on Social Media as we went along & friends were absolutely astounded at the rate of progress - we are no experts in the build trade, but are now convinced we got incredibly lucky with Go Gondolier. Our resulting extension is beautifully built & better than we ever imagined.

    We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Simon & his team (so long as you don't need him when we do!).

  • Kitchen extension & loft conversion

    Simon & his team have done a rear extension & loft conversion for us. The work has been carried out to a high standard and was completed ahead of schedule. Simon has been professional throughout and we had a very positive working relationship. He gave us good advice & suggestions throughout the project which improved on the plans from our architect. He also listened to our ideas and was always willing to add in extra bespoke details, for example, a bar in our kitchen based off a Pinterest picture. His team are all polite & hard working. Overall a very positive experience!

  • Groundworks for Extension required to build up to Dpc

    Hired Simon to do our extension after doing a loft conversion 2 years ago.
    Once again Simon did a great job.
    Best thing about working with Simon is that he sticks to deadlines unlike a lot of other builders I've worked with and the quality is very good.
    He's easy to talk to and communicate with, always picks up his phone and flexible on changes.
    We had a few issues on the build but we quickly managed to resolve them.
    His team and also very polite, courteous and hard working.
    Couldn't recommend Simon highly enough.

  • Loft, double side and rear return

    In 27 years, undoubtedly the best builder that I have ever employed. High standards, professional, clean and tidy, extremely quick! Simon is very pleasant, easy going, very hardworking and even kept the neighbours happy. I no longer would use anybody else. Loft, double side extension, upper 3 metre bedroom extension and 6 metre back extension all completed in 4 months. Amazing!

  • Loft Extension, New Kitchen and General Renovation

    We used Simon and Go Gondolier to carry out fairly extensive renovations – extending our loft, removing an internal wall, swapping two rooms around and installing a new kitchen, along with completing a general renovation work – installing new bathrooms, new floors, replastering etc etc. This is our first building project and it was great to have a professional who clearly has knowledge and experience. We were extremely happy with their work – they worked exceptionally efficiently and completed the job in the time frame they initially committed to. Throughout the process, Simon was always on the other end of the phone. We have no hesitation in recommending them for building work, and would be happy for potential clients to ask Simon for my details to speak to me and look at our property.

  • Removal of brick wall

    Simon and the team were excellent. Clear communication from the start on the price, timing and process.

    The team are efficient, tidy and did a great job.

    I'll be using Go Gondolier again in other areas of my house refurb and would highly recommend them.

  • Removal of Partician Walls and kitchen installation

  • Removal of two walls - not sure if they're load bearing

    I cannot praise this company enough, their work is great and their work ethic even better. They would turn up at 8.30 every morning and work through till 7.30 every night. They were polite, knowledgeable, nothing was too much trouble and I would, without hesitation use them again and recommend them to anyone that I know. Great job.

  • Loft conversion and 1st floor bathroom refurb

    Recently finished Loft conversion that Go Gondolier completed in SW19. Great finish all the works were completed a week earlier than planned from start to finish 6 weeks which is far quicker than others quoted!

    Simons team were all tidy, polite and hard working. Would highly recommend them for any builders works, decorating, plastering etc.

    Really happy with finish and the works that Simon completed for us, 5 star service.

  • 4.3 x 6m single storey extension

    Simon was extremely efficient in the way his team go about the work. He completed the extension in under 5 weeks (whereas others were quoting 3 months). The speed at which his team go is by no means to the detriment of the quality of the build. Undertook variations to the build during the course of works and didn't try to rip me off on costs for these. Would HIGHLY recommend to all!!!!

  • Loft Conversion required for 30's semi

    We hired Goal gondolier to do our hip to Gable loft conversion. We are very happy with the finished job and couldn’t recommend go gondolier highly enough.The job was done to a very high standard, Simon promised to finish within six weeks and he finished early which also included decoration as a favour that wasn’t in the original quote.
    Simon is a very nice guy and very honest and his team are very pleasant, they work very hard and they were work very long hours. They are also very tidy and cleaned up every day.
    Simon is the best builder I have ever worked with and will be sure to hire him to do our kitchen extension.
    Payment terms are also very fair, weekly payments as opposed to other competitors that charged a large amount upfront.
    Simon has a very keen eye for detail and Advised us on improvements on the original drawings done by the architect which made a big difference to the finish.
    His communication skills are also excellent, he always picks up his phone and always responds to emails the same day.
    We are absolutely delighted with our loft conversion and can’t recommend go gondolier highly enough.

  • Loft extension

  • 1 Bed Flat Refurb

    I had originally overlooked this company, as I was looking at builders with a minimum of 100 positive feedback. I then came across them on the Federation of Master Builders, so decided to invite them to quote. From my first meeting with Simon his honesty and experience was apparent and decided to hire Go Gondolier Ltd for this job.

    The work was originally estimates to take 14 working days it was completed in just 10 days! Simon and his team worked long days and weekends to get the job completed ahead of time. He was a great project manager and a pleasure to deal with. They always left the place clean and tidy.

    As with all building work there were hiccups along the way (wrong toilet delivered), which meant Simon had to come back and finish the job. Simon was true to his words and came back!

    In my opinion, Simon's unique selling point is his attention to detail and high standards. He thought of all the little details that I had missed on my schedule of work. He puts himself in the clients position and thinks of what they need.

    I am really pleased with the standard of work and will definitely be getting Simon back to do the kitchen and any future projects that I may have.

    I highly recommend Simon and his team, you are in safe hands.

  • Loft Conversion - plans and building regs available

    Great job A+++++++++++++

  • Loft conversion

    We contacted Simon about taking over our loft conversion after being let down by a builder who in 2 months had only just begun to lay the joists.
    We are more than pleased with the rapid transformation of our old loft space into two new rooms and beautifully tiled bathroom in just six weeks by Simon and his hardworking team.
    They accomplished this by putting in long days, often 8-6, working solidly in all weathers and with minimal disruption to our household.
    The builders were polite and considerate and tidied up well at the end of each day.
    Simon was happy to accomodate several additions and alterations as the build progressed.
    We've been impressed with the standard of work and all done within a very reasonable budget.
    We'd readily recommend Go Gondolier to anyone planning on doing a loft conversion, or doing other building works.

  • Garage Conversion and 3m Single Storey Extension

    Simon has done a great job - done effectively a full ground renovation in just under 10 weeks as agreed. We now have a new extension with new floor, kitchen, underfloor heating etc, and also the garage conversion has been completed giving us some smart new rooms and some breathing space!

    We have since hired him again to do the cladding on the front of the house and would recommend him.

  • Bedroom refurbishment

    Simon and his team were hired to replace a ceiling, plaster the walls, add spotlights and new electric sockets in our bedroom. We added a few things last minute and they were happy to accommodate us. They were professional and easy to communicate with. I would definitely recommend them and will hire them again when we're ready to refurbish the master bedroom.

  • Loft Ladder-in need of repair

    Mine was a simple job but required professional attention.

    Simon turned up with his team earlier than expected and waited for me to get home.

    He came equipped with parts and a good team who had the work assessed, estimated and completed in less than half hour.

    Straight forward job, professional service, very reasonable fee, no fuss and left premises clean and tidy with a one and half years warranty.

    I couldn't have asked for more and thank Simon & team for a job well done.


  • Putney balcony

    Simon and his team were reliable, on time, courteous, clean and completed the job on time and on budget. When have you ever heard that about a building company? I would have no hesitation recommending their services or using them again. Fantastic job!

  • Demolishing plasterboard wardrobe and building a new wa

    Simion and his team were extremely efficient and did the job to a very high standard. Next time I need any work done I'll be sure to use their services again. Highly recommended.

  • Door repairs and restoration

    I was really pleased with the work done to repair and restore the original doors in our Victorian house. Simon came out to give me a quote the next day after I shortlisted him, and the job was completed within a week. He and his team were highly efficient and I am pleased with the final result. I would not hesitate to use them again and recommend them to others.

  • loft extension

  • Kitchen Extension

    Simon and his team carried out a full kitchen extension for me, including removing the rear structural wall, installing a new downstairs WC, new stud wall and full floor and kitchen installation. They were good value (not the cheapest, not the most expensive); did a good job; and worked very hard to complete the build in the shortest time-frame possible (6 weeks all in, including kitchen fitting).

    Any changes were discussed before they went ahead and they brought some good ideas to the table too.

    I would be happy to recommend Simon and his team and happy to send through photos of the build as it progressed to anyone who is interested.

  • 2 storey extension

    I hired Marius and his team to carry out my two storey extension, I can honestly say these are the best builders I have come across. From the minute I met him and he gave me my initial quote which was very reasonable I knew I would hire him. From the start to finish I was totally at ease. I never had any delays, they showed up when they said they would and on time everytime. Their work rate is second to none aswell I had quotes saying it would take 12-14 weeks from other builders whereas Marius completed mine in 8 weeks even though I added a couple of other improvements while the job was ongoing. My friends in the trade were gobsmacked how quick they were. All in all I wouldn't have any doubts about employing them to carry out any building work for me in the future.

  • Garden Shed repair

    Simon and his team removed our old broken shed and replaced it with a new shed - the job was completed very well, on time and overall handled very professionally. Also, he did the job within the quote he gave, which was very reasonable. I would highly recommend Simon and his team and certainly plan to use them again.

  • Skirting board and door frame removal and replacement

    The skirting boards were replaced but some corners were not at right angles. The guys faffed about removing two doors but never actually did anything with the door frames while still having the confidence to ask for half of the door frame fee. £40 to remove two doors (which I could have done myself )is a rip off.
    The skirting boards were done to a satisfactory level and the price was good.

    iGo Victorian's reply:

    i feel very sorry to hear you are not 100% satisfied with the work done by us which from my point of view has been done right . we have discussed all the time during the project you should mention if there is something you are not happy with , my job is to make sure the client is always happy no matter what,he is the one who keeps us alive, also we have done some extra small things which wasn't in our agreement it could cover those 40 pounds very easy,probably you were in a bad mood when you left the review on this site,i understand that everyone is working hard for the money same as we do but think twice before leave a feedback this might affect our image in front of others clients which is not fare and i think we deserved more than that,it is up to every client to appreciate the quality of work and to expect to get exactly what they paid for, nothing more,construction industry is a very tricky world,some of the clients wants the highest standard at the lowest price which is not possibile this is where you as a client you need to be prepared what to choose and know exactly what you want.
    appologise again if you think we caused any troubles and i would recommend next time when you consider there is things which can be done by yourself and saves you money ,just do it and probably you will understand us better
    we offer proffesionals services only and never trying to cut corners
    our pleased clients and the positive feedbacks can confirm that

  • Moving doorway & studwall and painting room

    Simon and his team were fantastic. I was amazed by their efficiency at completing the job to such a high spec in just 2 days. They were polite, courteous and accommodating to our needs throughout. Highly recommend, and will be using them in the future.

  • Home Extension

  • Tile Kitchen Floor and corridor

    The work was done swiftly and competently within the agreed time. Although there is a small portion to be completed due to other works, we are sure Simon and his team will be back.

  • Hip to Gable Loft Conversion, 1 bedroom and a bathroom

    Simon is currently doing our loft conversion and he is doing a great job as per the previous jobs he did ( saw one of his other jobs before hiring him).

    I can highly recommend him, he is on schedule with all the works, reliable, timing and workmanship is great.

    Will definitely work with him again.

    If you need to talk to me for a reference, you can get my details from Simon, I'll be happy to answer any questions.

  • To supply and fit a staircase handrails

    Simon and his mate turned up on time, they worked away until the job was finished cleaning up as they went with a final clean up at the end. They were very organised and finished the job in good time. I'm going to use them again soon. One very happy customer.

  • Fitting a door frame and door in a beadroom

  • Existing porch to be re-built

    Really impressed with Simon and his team - quick,prompt, friendly and I'm happy with the end result. I would happily recommend to anyone considering using them.

  • Grove House - Bathroom

    The Go Gondolier team did a very good job in my bathroom. The bathroom was by no means straight forward using a variety of tiles including mosaics and had to cut to a number of different angles but it wasn't a problem. They are considerate to your property and neighbours alike. Trustworthy and I would recommend to others.

  • stud work for loft conversion

    Simon was very easy to work with and didn't waste any time catching up after previous team fell very behind schedule. He is fair and his team is hard working.

  • Replacement of skirting boards

    Simon responded very quickly for the job and came round the next day to provide a quote. He arrived on time to do the work and did a very good job indeed, in half the time we were expecting. We will definitely be using Simon and his team again.

  • Bathroom floor and wall tiling

    Fast and reliable. Very pleased with the work done. Would defiantly recommend.

  • Re-Hang 2 Doors

  • Install a fire door

    Very good and would go to again.

  • Tile repairs and other misc jobs

    Part of the job - bathroom resealing - didn't last. This is despite having to ask them to come over second time and them applying much thicker layer of sealant. We mentioned that it might be better to remove old sealant before applying the new, but were reassured that shouldn't matter. We'll be asking someone else to re-do it.

  • Tile + paint bathroom

    My job consisted of re-painting the bathroom, changing the tiles, and fitting new accessories around the bath. Everything was done so well that I can't think of anything bad to say. All tradesmen should work this way: turn up on time, take tremendous care to leave your home clean and tidy, be polite and friendly at every moment, do everything exactly as agreed, and complete the job to a very high standard. I'd be happy to recommend this tradesman to anyone.

  • Hang internal bedroom doors

    Absolutely the worst team ever, not only did they ruin one door but the handles soon fell off all the others would never use these people again

    iGo Victorian's reply:

    Dear Lisa,
    Thank you for your feedback.

    We are very surprised that you have written a negative Review after 3 years +, regarding the internal door that we fitted for you.
    If someone is not satisfied with the work done it should get in touch with us first and discuss the issue I think this is a normal way to do it,but you haven’t said anything about it suddenly you left a negative feedback which is gonna have an impact on our reputation for no reason
    We are working very hard to keep everyone happy and clients can confirm that anyway it was your choice

    As you are aware, myself and my colleague have just contacted you to offer to replace and upgrade the door for you at no cost to yourself and have also offered compensation, both of which you have refused.

    As you can see from our record, we have a 100% positive customer satisfaction rate from all of our clients to date and so it is a shame to suddenly hear that you now feel unsatisfied after 3 years.

    All the best, Go-Gondolier


  • Change doors

  • Tiling bathroom floor and windowsill

    Simon and his team were absolutely brilliant from the moment we met and talked about the his, to the very end . His time keeping was impeccable the whole way through the job - when he said he was going to be here, he was here on the dot! His workmanship was first class and he cut absolutely no corners in getting the job done to the highest quality. Bearing in mind his price was very competitive I was really impressed (and so grateful) for his care and high expectations. They were so clean and tidy that when I came home it was extremely difficult to know they had even been there. I cannot recommend Simon highly enough - I have already asked him to do some more work for me! You will be in very good hands!

    Marius did a great job mending our broken lock. He responded very quickly to my post and was prepared to come out same day over the weekend. He managed to avoid us having to get a new door, which would have been much more expensive, and it's just like new now. Good job at a good price.
