  • laying foundation blocks

    Many Thanks to Paul and KDBS for his help in this project.

    I needed a new self build house constructing and contacted Paul. He said these foundation workings was not his specialty and instead of fobbing me off he gave me the contact details of someone he recommended.

    Since this Stephen and his team from S and G Brickwork have done brilliant service for my project. Much praise to Paul and his network of contacts in the building trade. A true expert and professional.

  • Replace current roof on upstairs bay window

    On time with quality fitting and finish. Paul is a true craftsman and will recommend unreservedly

    Quick response. Very helpful.
    Found the problem and fixed straight away.
    Follow up calls to check as was OK.
    I would recommend KDBS to all.

  • Remove conservatory and build extension

  • Garage conversion and kitchen alteration

    Paul did a great job in converting our tired old garage into a really nice room with WC. The slight alterations to the kitchen turned out great, and we've now got loads more really usable space that we didn't have before. All came in on budget, and he explained the bill at the end which was a nice touch to clarify everything that had been done.

    Despite decisions from me and building control to change some of the requirements during the project, he did them without issue and was really helpful in helping us to understand what was being done as he was working on it.

    Would absolutely recommend for any work!

  • garage conversion

    Paul and his team have done a good job. Finished within the timescale and price quoted. Very happy with work and have pencilled Paul in to do more work in the near future

  • Floor replacement

    First class job, done within time at reasonable price. Also very patient with our delays etc. No hesitation in recommending.

  • Chimney Stack lean-to

    Good quote, explained different options and costs. came as soon as he could and neighbours commented on the neat work.

    Thanks for the good work, we'll be in touch for more!

  • Removal of internal wall and chimney breast, + others

  • Boxing in pipes

    I hired Paul to do a job, Whilst he was here I talked about other work I needed doing,we decided just to get it all done at once. His joiner, Stuart, put a nail through our oak bannister he lied to me & said it was already there. My bf phoned Paul who said Stuart had fired the wrong size pin in. It took 6 weeks to get replaced. Paul took the criticism personally,it soured the next job of the fireplace he said he would come over & he didn't, no text/calls. We were left with a hole. When he did board it out, it was wonky. Paul set the step (at a slant) didn't come back as promised, when I got home from work 2 days later he was doing a job 2 doors up. We argued Paul was shouting and swearing at me in the street in front of my toddler. He told my bf he wouldn't come back,leaving the job unfinished. He sent a joiner round to finish the skirting (he had now sacked Stuart and hired Terry) whilst Terry was there, I asked him for his number 2 fit 2 doors he said he was self employed and gave me his number. We agreed a price, time and day for the doors. when Terry didn't come, my bf phoned him and Was Told Paul had taken him to do another job when he said he was doing ours & Paul puts work his way. Paul told him not to fit out doors out of spite & told us his other sub-contractors that worked for him wouldn't be coming to do any work we had without his say so. Paul is a coward and a cowboy. He takes on too much, makes promises he can't keep, he lacks communication & professionalism!

  • leaking gutter

    Paul was punctual very helpful with his advice and done a good job. i would recommend him and would use him again.

  • Darras Hall

  • Window into double French doors

    Paul did a great job with the doors he was very professional and did everything to it high standard. We also got extra work done and got a stud wall taken down and a old fireplace reopened up. The finished job looks great.
    Also really good price and Paul was the best price around.
    We are getting more work done and are hiring Paul again as we know we will get a great job done to a high standard.
    Would recommend Paul to anyone thinking of getting work done as he is honest and will tell you the best option.

  • Replace broken / missing roof slates

    Good communication, turned up on time etc.

    Carried out work to a good standard, and came in at the price quoted.

    Would definitely use again in the future.

  • Garage conversion and more

    KDBS was great from start to finish. The build took place in December January so was not ideal weather wise but he pushed really hard to get everything secure for Christmas. He managed our garage conversion to living space adding a pitched roof over the garage and along the front of the house and fitted a downstairs toilet . He came up with some great ideas and accepted things we didn't want to change. Always on time and brought in some good contractors where needed. It looks better than we could have hoped for, we will be in contact for the next project. I would definitely recommend him.

  • Leaking Roof

    A very obliging man. Paul spent a considerable time discussing our roof leakage and repaired it carefully, despite having a painful knee.
    His rate was reasonable; he didn't attempt to hasten the work and drive off to another job as quickly as possible, as so many builders seem to do. And best of all, he explained in detail what he was doing and the reasons for it.
    I myself will unhesitatingly contact him again when another task requires attention at this house. It's so pleasing to find a tradesman who takes an active interest in his customers and wants them to be satisfied with his work.

  • Driveway wall

    A man of his word, work done to schedule. He dealt with a difficult situation with great grace. And he was extremely conscientious - even coming over in the rain to cover the bricks. I would definitely ask him to work for me again, and in fact, I have.

  • Bathroom window

    Very efficient company.
    Great communication every step of the way.
    Very pleased with the work Paul did for us.
    A big thank you.

  • garage conversion

    Paul from Kdbs completed our garage conversation . We are very pleased at the end result and with the help in the planning of the layout . He was very professional, punctual, friendly, accommodating and hard working.
    We would have no hesitation in recommending him.

  • Garage repair

    I had to wait nearly two months for any signs of work beginning. Paul appeared professional and knowledgable, but continually delayed the work saying he would contact me nearer the time he was able to start. At the beginning of December after 2 months my patience ran out and I told him I didn't want him doing the work. I advertised beginning of October hoping to have the work done before the winter weather set in, and ended up withd visions of being left with a garage wall half pulled down and 2 ft of snow delaying work yet again. Disappointing because other feedback was impressive.

    KDBS's reply:

    Hi Carole,
    I need to point out you posted the job 2 months ago,but did not hire myself until 4 weeks ago,as you stated you could not afford to pay for all the work and your path as well, once you where ready to proceed financially I emailed you and stated it would be approximately 2 weeks to start time,unfortunately the job before yours in Morpeth required additional work as the client never got
    A survey done 1st,with 2 young children in the house and no kitchen I felt I could not leave,as the building work had to be completed prior to kitchen being fitted. I've apologised more than once for my delay and feel that a negative comment for running late is a bit harsh. Paul KDBS.

  • Yard wall drop / rebuild with new gate

    All good - good comms, decent price and turned up on time etc.

    Cheers.

  • wall removal

    We hired KDBS to remove a wall to create a kitchen diner. The job turned out to be more complicated than originally anticipated, meaning that Paul had to work on our job longer than planned. Paul brought in the right people at the right time in order to finish the work and to make sure that my family and I had a kitchen with as little disruption as possible. All of the tradesmen turned up on time and did a good job.

  • Door bricked up. Window and wall taken out.

    I would not hesitate to hire KDBS. He was very proficient, diligent and he made sure that he checked in with you all the way through the job. If you want a reliable, honest and trustworthy builder, use KDBS! I would highly recommend Paul and I wouldn't heaitate to use his company services again!

  • Repointing, replace fascia & guttering - South Gosforth

    Couldn't recommend Paul enough - he was helpful in recommending work that needed to be carried out and dealing with neighbours, kept in touch and was priced much more competitively than others.

  • Checking flat roof for leak and repair if needed

    Great job completed, speedily and professionally. Very happy. Would definitely hire again.

  • Roof repair, gutter replacement and low fence

    Second time I've used KDBS for a range of work and impressed again. Really efficient, professional and helpful. Good communication and great work. Would recommend.

  • garden wall

    a good job,very good brickwork I am pleased with the result and would use Paul again

    Paul was great, communication and flexibility top rate and cost for work very reasonable. Would hire again

  • Repointing of house.

    Paul did a good job repointing the brickwork.
    He was reliable, friendly, and worked hard to get it done in good time.
    I am happy to give him a recommendation.

  • Home improvement

    Just had my job finished off Paul from KDBS my wife and i are over the moon with the standard of work that has been carried out and would not hesitate to recommend Paul to any one on top of that he is a gentleman and professional thanks again paul from me and kath

  • replace tiles

    Paul completed the job service was excellent would recommend. Would use this company again

  • Garage Conversion

    Paul from day 1 recommended what was best for the job, but was also conscious of my budget, which I appreciated. The job had some challenges but Paul pereservered to finish the conversion to a good standard. His work ethic was great, and he never stopped. Already recommended Paul, so happy to do so again.

  • Quote for extension and new kitchen installation

    We have just had 3x5 metre extension to the rear of our property completed by Paul at KBDS. Paul has project managed (and been hands-on) throughout the build over the past 12 weeks.

    Paul was punctual, polite and professional throughout; managing and sourcing various tradesmen throughout the build.

    Paul has a vast amount of knowledge and skill across the multiple trades but crucially knows when to get the right people to complete more specialist jobs (electrics, plumbing, welding, steels, etc).

    We changed various aspects as the build progressed, and credit to Paul, he was accommodating and patient with us; making sure we were happy with progress throughout.

    From screw-caps to steel beams, Paul's knowledge in the industry proved invaluable throughout the build and helped us to source products cheaper and better than we could ourselves.

    Negatives? I'm always wary of a tradesman who doesn't accept a cup of tea; 7:30am starts took a bit of getting used to and one or two days I thought a bomb had gone off in the garden; but nothing unexpected or unreasonable given the size and extent of the job.

    Not the cheapest quote, but we are delighted with the standard of work and professionalism of Paul and his wider team.

  • Stud wall

  • Inserting a couple of additional air bricks

  • roof renovation/tile repair

    Paul was excellent in his attention to the job and flexible. Tidy too.Would definitely recommend and will use again

  • Loft boarding and hatch

  • small roofing repair

    Paul's estimate was very competitive, he arrived when he said he would and talked me through what he intended to do.
    He arrived to do the work on time and was concientious he took photographs of work he did. Obviously wont know if leak has been cured until we have a proper downpour but I am sure if there are any problems Paul will sort it. Thank you, Margaret

  • Leaking roof (flat not tiled)

    Couldn't recommend highly enough. Paul responded quickly and arrived exactly when he said he would. He took photos of the roof and showed me on the phone so I could see for myself what needed doing. His price was very reasonable and I felt no pressure at all to go ahead with the work after the quote (which I often do feel). Will definately use him again for any other roofing work needed.

  • Extension to rear of bungalow, approx 12ft x6ft.

  • Removing dry verge and remortar

    Paul came on time and worked over 3 days doing a good job. He also did a bit of pointing and put in new joist beside front door as floor was bouncy - this was because there was NO joist there at all!
    Thanks Paul for a good job which has prevented us having accidents from previous faulty building work.
    Overall: Fair price, clean finish and left tidy.

  • Knock internal wall down

    We would have no hesitation in hiring Paul again. Quote was delivered quickly. All work completed to time and price and Paul was very helpful in making suggestions about finish. He even took the time to give us a lesson on how to put up coving 😊. All sub contractors were also very good including the cleanest plasterer we've ever had! Great job done !

  • New roof tile

    2nd time Paul's carried out work for me now, really pleased with the job and the time taken to turn it around, also a big thanks to Ben. Would highly recommend.

  • Loft boarding out, moving/installing boiler, plastering

    We hired Paul to carry out/manage various jobs including boarding out our loft, removing a built in cupboard and boarding/plastering the hole, fitting a new bannister, boxing in some pipes and moving/installing a new boiler. The quote was very reasonable and Paul was available more or less straight away to do the work (while we were away on holiday, in fact). The work was completed by Paul and his team both on time and to a very good standard. Since carrying out the work Paul has also been an extremely helpful sounding board (we are DIY novices!), with useful tips and advice for other parts of the house. We'll definitely use KDBS again.

  • Repair or rebuild a back wall with wooden door

    Paul has done an excellent job and has been very patient during some delays on our part. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Paul for any work you need doing. The estimate we received was very detailed and the job was a very good price compared to other companies. We felt that this was because Paul is very honest and explained to us exactly how he could carry out the repair, whereas others advised a complete rebuild was needed.

  • Back yard wall and gate replacement

    Work completed to our satisfaction. All the tradesmen were very professional and completed work in a timely manner. The brickies did leave a bit of a mess in the yard - perhaps a polythene sheet underneath the waste would have helped but all in all we are pleased with the work. Thanks Paul.

  • Build Garden brick wall

    We had a garden wall built by KDBS. The quality of the work was exemplary.

  • Roofing Repairs

    Paul was very flexible in taking a look at our various roofing requirements and came by when I was held up elsewhere but still took stock of what needed to be done to give me a competitive quote. His is professional in both his work and communication which enabled me to schedule the work in around our household diaries. He was also very helpful in providing advice and recommendations for remedial courses of action on our repairs. I would highly recommend Paul.

  • Domestic chimney repair

  • New Garden Wall

    When looking for a builder that could build a large quality garden wall I searched for competent builders on my builder I found KDBS.
    Paul is a tradesman who really knows his trade.
    Prompt efficient and reliable.
    From the initial enquiry to the finished result Paul and his team have been proficient at all times.
    The bricklaying team are extremely skilled and were happy to give advice and suggest changes if required.
    Quality of build, Speed, Cleanliness and Reliable are the watchwords for the team.
    Would I recommend KDBS .... Absolutely I already have further projects lined up for Paul and his team.
    Finding reliable quality tradesmen is sometimes difficult and when found are worth their weight in gold. KDBS is definitely solid gold

  • Leaking roof (possibly beneath skylight glass)

    We're very happy with all the work undertaken by Paul and his team. He's proven to be a friendly, punctual tradesman, happy to offer advice on our projects. Recommended without hesitation.

  • Demolition of internal (non load bearing wall)

    We employed Paul to knock down and rebuild an internal wall to increase the size of our living room. Paul offered a realistic price and convenient starting date. Paul got held up on another job because of bad weather and was excellent at keeping us informed about the revised date so this was not a problem.

    On the whole a very good job was done. Paul brought in some excellent tradesmen for electrics, joinery and plastering.

    There were a couple of issues along the way which did delay things. The main problem was that the door frame was built to the wrong size. This meant that we had to change to a smaller door. as all the plastering etc had already been done and it would have meant a huge upheaval. We took time out of our own working days to collect the new door in order to limit delays but it all worked out Ok in the end as it's a tight space and the new door is slimmer.

    One piece of constructive criticism:If I have employed a builder who subcontracts to other trades with particular expertise, I do expect the overseeing builder to come back at the end and inspect the work and attend to any snagging. We had to politely ask Paul to do this before we paid him as there were a few things to finish off. He did come promptly and carried out the things we asked (screwing in light switches, removing rubbish) to our satisfaction but he was resentful and grumpy about it. Cheer up Paul! We are very pleased with the work and would certainly employ you again. Many thanks.

  • Fix Floor Board - Very small job

    Small floorboard fix performed well, friendly helpful advice given.

  • Leaking Roof

    Paul was very quick to respond and give an initial quote. There was excellent communication every step of the way, and I'm very happy with the completed work.

    I would definitely recommend Paul to anyone and I will use him again in the future.

    Cheers

  • Building repair

    Excellent service. Great communication throughout. Arrived when he said he would. No messing around just got the job done to a very high standard. Would definitely recommend. Thanks very much!

  • Gateshead leaking roof, flashing needs to be replaced

    Very fast initial response, then prompt communication at each stage.

    I was grateful Paul could do the job so quickly for me - I posted the job on Sunday night, received the quote on Monday, work was done on Tuesday.

    Very happy that work came with 2year guarantee.

    Would definitely recommend Paul and will be inviting him to do additional internal jobs I have.

    Thank you.

  • Leaking roof

    Quick turnaround to complete the job, Paul took the time explain what the problems were with my roof and how he was going to repair them. He remained in contact Throughout. Would highly recommend Paul and would definitely use him again if anything else comes up in the future.

  • Soffit needs replacing and loose tile replacing

    This is the third time I've used KDBS for repairs to my roof. Paul was able to give a quote for the job very quickly and fit in the work when he was able. I like how he takes 'before and after' photos so you can see what needs doing and the finished results without having to go up a ladder! Overall very pleased with the job and the price.

  • Remove supporting wall (and potentially further work)

    Paul carried out some internal renovations and work on my roof.

    He went out of his way to help me out, even when my plans changed at the last minute.

    He was generous with his time and even taught me a few things that will come in useful with future DIY.

    I am really happy with the result and know I will use KDBS for future work.

  • find the leaks!

    Paul really considered the problem I was having with damp and gave me the most honest appraisal of the three tradespeople I consulted. It was also considerably cheaper! Did a great job in replacing not only my guttering, but also attending to the real problem which was in the neighbours roof. Neither of the other tradespeople picked this up. Most impressed. Thank you sooooo much.

  • Kitchel Lintel move

  • Roofing work and re-pointing

    I am very happy with the work that Paul did for me. I appreciated the fact that he explained to me what he was doing, and took on both the jobs I needed doing, the bigger and the smaller one.

  • Missing slates from roof causing leak

    Really happy with the job, because of the weather the job was put on hold for a week, but he then did tile replacement jobs for free, the best thing about this company is they give you a guarantee, so if the leak returns, they will come back and fix it for free. Would definitely recommend, and I would use Paul again.

  • Fixing two leaks on house roof

    About Paul Coulson: Good communication. Inspected thoroughly before job start. Pleasant to deal with. Did work carefully and conscientiously. Gave 5 year written guarantee on work done. Will ask him again if I have more roofing problems.

  • Roof repair, gutter check and possible chimney repair

    I'd definitely recommend Paul, he's an honest, efficient and hardworking bloke. He talked me through all aspects of the job and his communication was always good, letting me know when he planned to visit the house and complete the job. Although we ran into a few problems during the chimney work (the job became much larger than we'd initially planned) he dealt with it all and kept me informed. I'll be requesting his services for future roofing/building work and would recommend him to others.

  • Fix Leak in roof

    Job completed with no hassle always kept in contact about about progress and done to a high standard. Would def hire again.

  • Conversion from Old Garage to Study and Utility Room

  • slate roof repair (4-5 tiles)

    From the start I was particularly impressed with Paul's professionalism and customer service. He arrived promptly in order to give us a quote and his thorough inspection of the roof found a number of issues that needed some attention. Paul provided us photos and talked us through the work that was required, making it very clear what was urgent and what we could leave a little longer. In the end we decided to get everything done as the quote Paul had given us was very reasonable. He delivered as promised finishing the work on time, on budget and to a very high standard again showing us photos at every stage. I highly recommend Paul and will definitely consider using him again if I need any building work done in the future.

  • Suspected leaking roof

    I initially posted job and received correspondence from Paul after this initial consultation he liaised with me regularly sent pictures of the before and after work and stated to me that if the job had not remedied the situation to let him know he was in touch throughout and was willing to offer advice and guidance so as to get the job done without any undue cost. So far a good and re assuring service which I would happily recommend. Cheers Paul.

  • Leak in Roof.

    We hired Paul because we had water coming in through the bedroom wall, from the roof. On inspection, Paul discovered several cracks in the tiles, underneath our Solar panels.... not the most easy of jobs!!! However, Paul proceeded to tackle it, with the help of Tony. Tony was very approachable, polite and knuckled down to the task in hand. It was evident that he really wanted this resolved for us!
    What I liked about Paul was that when he said he would ring us back, he did. He kept to his word about everything he said he would do. I'm afraid that cannot be said about many in this type of industry .
    I have no hesitation in saying that he is the best and most reliable person in his field, that we have ever come across! You would agree, that says it all.

I highly recommend Paul and Tony and will certainly use him again for any future work.

  • Leak from guttering above bay window

    Paul sent Tony along to complete the work to my roof. He was very thorough in identifying the cause of the problems I was having and the work was carried out very quickly and efficiently.

    Nothing was a problem for Tony and communication throughout the job was fantastic at every point. Each stage of the job was completed as agreed and expected.

    My property also has a very high roof, which has caused other roofers to be reluctant to undertake work in the past. This was not a problem for him.

    I'll definitely be using both Paul and Tony again should I have any roofing issues in the future.

  • Remove gutter from around flat roof

    Job well done and at a very reasonable price.

I would not hesitate at all in recommending Paul and all work undertaken was guaranteed for 5 years.

  • Roof replacement conservatory

    Paul replaced a leaking and rotting polycarbonate conservatory roof with a

  • Replace Lintel on exterior door

    It's been a great experience from start to finish. Paul didn't seem phased by the work initially, talked me through exactly how he would do it and kept me updated throughout the job.

    Paul was on site when he said he would be and made sure the joiner had everything he needed.

    Paul went the extra mile to ensure the brickwork was made good and it looks fantastic. I'm chuffed. Fantastic work.

  • four feet wide french doors

    A reliable hard working man in Paul, I can't praise him enough and have arranged to speak to him in the new year to decorate 3 rooms for me once my new kitchen is fitted in January. I would recommend him without hesitation.

  • Interior wall

    KDBS, (Paul Coulson) is a reliable builder, who was able to accommodate our internal partition wall job, within a few days of receiving his very reasonable quotation. He was a good communicator, and happy to return to our job after completion, to attend to a couple of minor cracks that appeared, after the plaster had dried out completely a few days later. He seemed generally very knowledgeable and experienced in his trade, and keen to offer advice to me.

  • repoint chimney

    I chose KDBS to repoint my chimney and Jamie's work looks neat and clean, according to the finished photos. I liked the fact he ground-out the old cement first before infilling with new. Jamie was polite and friendly and replaced three broken roof tiles for free, using my spares. I would recommend KDBS to family and friends.

  • Roofing and water penetration from the chimney

    All good. Nice to talk. Done what's been needed. Many thanks!

  • Rear store roof replacement

    Paul turned up when he said, completed job on time and to budget and only requested for payment once had fully completed. He also provided helpful advice and assistance with other jobs which he needn't have done. All in all very impressed and would not hesitate to recommend / use again.

    Paul got back to us extremely fast and had been out to the house within days with a quote.Upon accepting the job he was really patient with my boyfriend who was asking advice on how to renovate our first house.Paul took down a supporting wall and put an RSJ in for us initially and due to the reasonable prices and patience we asked him to carry out some repairs to our roof all of which were completed to a high standard. We have kept all of his contact details for when we next need a job doing and would highly recommend.

  • Roof and wall

    Paul was consistently helpful and courteous. He completed the work which he said he would do in the time that he had agreed to do it. He also suggested some additional work which he thought would make the job more effective and he only charged for the materials, he also made some suggestions for some work we were doing ourselves. Paul turned up when he said he would and kept in contact to let us know if the weather, for example was going to delay the job for an hour or two.
    Altogether a satisfactory job.

  • Repair slipped slates

    Paul was in touch same day, visited to give quote and completed work within the week. Happy to recommend KDBS to others.

  • pointing ands steel support.

    Fantastic!
    After getting ripped off recently by another trader I was weary about getting anyone else into the house to carry out work. Paul but my mind at rest immediately and spent over an hour talking to me about the options open to me.
    He worked well with other tradesmen and kept us well informed of any changes to schedule. Very good work, good price and thoroughly nice guy, I wouldn't hesitate to employ him again. In fact he will be getting the job of repointing our chimney next year.

  • Remove wall between kitchen and dining room

    Paul is honest, reliable and a hard worker. He does exactly what he promises in his estimate, arrives on time, keeps you informed, works with you to produce what you want and cleans up at the end of every day. I would strongly recommend his work.

  • Chimney stack (roof) - leaking through flashing

    Well done.
    Good job! Photos taken to show progress of work.
    Very pleasant to deal with.
    Recommended

  • Chimney pointing, flashing, lead guttering and tiling

    All work was carried out quickly, professionally and to a very high standard. I would definitely recommend Paul to anyone requiring roofing/chimney work. He explained everything that needed done very clearly and laid out the different options we had and the prices for each. He then got on with the job without any hassle. All-in-all, a very positive experience.

  • 1. Repair leak in loft 2. Repair leak in kitchen

    Paul responded to the enquiry quickly, assessed the problem and performed the job within 7 days. The results are excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommnding Paul for any other building work necessary. I hope that Paul can resolve my other problem of a leaking waste pipe in the loft.

  • New Roof

    Paul was very helpful at running through the roof and giving his assessment. He advised us that he didn't think we needed a new roof but would be better off doing some repairs for now.
    He was quick and responsive and did the work in time with no hassle. We would recommend him to others.

  • Roof check and Guttering and drain pipe repair

    Paul responded to my job quickly and came at a convenient time to quote for the work. Paul cleared and repaired my guttering and repaired my roof at a great price, even coming out to do the job when I was at work. Highly recommend.

  • Kitchen extension into rear of existing garage

  • painting outside door and windows

    Paul was very conscientious. He picked up all the material which was very helpful. The windows and door look great. He was also able to do the extra joinery work when it was discovered that some parts of the windows were rotten. This was extremely useful. I would definitely hire Paul again.

  • repair to flat roof

    paul contacted me and came out straight away, we discussed different options and he covered all sorts of roofing, I agreed for Grp Fibreglass, now complete looks great and a 25 warranty as well for piece of mind.
    thanks to KDBS.

  • Facia repairs and external painting

    Highly recommended. Kept us updated all the way through job. Gave a really reasonable quote. When they came to do the work the wood was in a worse state than we realised. Some of it just crumbled away. We were expecting a massive increase in the final bill due to the additional work. The final bill was barely any different to quote.
    Good honest workers, excellent quality finish and good price. Also the work is guaranteed as well. Couldn't ask for anything else.

  • guttering/tiles

  • Room and en-suite

    One of the best builders I have had the pleasure of meeting and work was done to high standard as well as other people that were involved were friendly,approachable, and honest
    Thank you once again Paul and associates for all the hard work.

  • Replace roof tiles

    This is the third time I've used KDBS, and I've always been happy with the cost, and the quality of the work. I would be happy to recommend to others.

  • Check roof inside and out, possible repair or replace

    This is the second time i have had Paul come out to my house to check my property due to damp in my walls and ceiling. On both occaisions paul got in touch with me very quickly after posting my job and came out to my house within 2 days of getting in touch with him. before he came out he rang and texted me at regular intervals to arrange times and to inform me if he had been held up. On both occaisions he was very prompt. Paul was very friendly and chatted to me at length about the problems and answered any questions i had. He spent a good amount of time at my property checking inside and out and gave me excellent and honest advice. In fact his advice was so good that once he had identified the problem i was able to do something about it myself and fortunately i didn't need any actual building work done, although paul did fix a couple of my roof tiles which had come loose. While i have not actually had to have any building work done i would have no hesitation in hiring Paul to undertake any building job i may have in the future and i have no hesitation in recommending him to others. Thanks again paul for your help and advice.

  • Fix Leaking Gutter

    Paul was great from the first. Told me the issues how they could be sorted even when there was an unexpected problem he came back ASAP to fix it.
    I will certainly use his services again.

  • Flat garage felt roof repair

    STOP LOOKING FOR ANYBODY ELSE AND HIRE PAUL
    He took on a job of sorting out faults and numerous water leaks on my garage roof which had resulted from bad workmanship by another "Roofer" when replacing the felt roof only 1 year ago. He is a straight forward and honest tradesman who insists on showing you what the problems are and then invites you to watch him resolving them.
    He is proud of his work, charges very fair rates and does not mind doing the extra small job which may present itself.
    I CAN'T RECOMMEND HIM TOO HIGHLY - JUST BOOK HIM!

  • Roof storm damaged

    Paul was hired to do roofing storm damage which included ridge tiles and lead valleys and slates.He put himself out to explain what needed doing and show us what materials he would be using. Paul is a great guy and brought Mick to help who worked hard and were grateful for a hot cuppa as it was very cold. We will definitely use them again and recommend Paul as he is very professional and left no cleaning for us to do.

  • new flat roof on bay window, main roof re-pointing

    Paul has helped us with various jobs on our roof - helping us to investigate leakage through the bay window and through our other flat roof. He has helped us save money because in the end he found out that the problems we had did not require replacement roofs, but just modification of the current ones. He is very reliable and hard working and was even working in the windy and rainy weather. He has been helping us not only with the jobs hired for but with other concerns we had in our house - he does a lot with no charge. He has very useful suggestions for our own DIY work too - we really appreciate the guidance.
    We would recommend Paul to everybody and hopefully he will work with us again to knock through a wall in the house and move the kitchen.

  • Replace doorway lintel

    Paul and his team were great! He came and assessed the job on the same day I posted it and gave me a really quick and reasonable quote. The work was done to a high quality and I was kept informed of everything he was doing. He was punctual and incredibly helpful, I would definitely recommend KDBS to anyone!

  • Roof repairs

    Paul and an amazing job with my ridge tiles and chimney stack. When I bought my property the ridge tiles were all over the place, missing and had no pointing in places. Within a day of coming to see me Paul had made my roof and chimney water tight. He also did a great job of repointing some of my brick work and replaced my missing flashing above the front door. He is a great guy and goes above and beyond what I expected of him! Will definitely be using Paul again when I put my log burner in and look to get my loft converted! Cheers again Paul!

  • Replace tiles and drainpipe after heavy winds

    Very pleased with Paul's work. Responded fast. Competitive quote. Work completed quickly and excellent communication throughout. Highly recommended.

  • Flat roof leaking

    Paul was excellent, communicated openly and honestly with me from the very start, managed to quote and complete the work for me the next day and also fit in another repair at another property for me at the same time. Quotes were very reasonable and Paul did not overcharge me or try to charge me for any unnecessary work. I will definitely be hanging onto his number and using him again.
    Thanks again Paul.

  • Kitchen refurb

    Paul was very punctual, friendly and helpful. We hired him to create two new doorways and a window and are very happy with the work he has done. We would definately use Paul again as we continue to refurbish our house!

  • Remove 2 load-bearing walls, brick up 2 doorways...

    Paul (from KDMS) came out and gave us a very reasonable quote for knocking down two internal walls, installing external French doors and blocking off an internal wall, he inspected our property exactly on time and provided his quote the next day, hired!

    Paul arrived bright and early on the agreed start date and got straight to-it. Paul was very informative throughout the project, informing us of all potential problems so we could agree a solution before work commenced in that area. Paul and his team worked tirelessly throughout and left the house nice and clean at the end of each day.

    Paul really went beyond what was expected, he even made and installed custom skirting boards to match the rest of the dining room and installed coving to the ceiling, for free!

    We paid exactly what was quoted after the job was finished.

    Paul is easy to talk to and very friendly but knows when to ‘crack-on’. If you want a professional then look no further than KDMS, highly recommend!!

    Thanks Paul.

  • Roof repairs

    Very pleased with the service I received from KDBS. The quote was detailed and accurate, and Paul kept me informed throughout the day's work as to what he was doing and why. Would recommend and use again.

  • Repointing gable end and chimney

    Paul carried out all work as agreed and on time. Very reliable! Would recommend.

  • Chimney cap needed (I think)

    Spot on job carried out by Paul. He was prompt, kept me updated, very tidy and an all round polite and courteous man. Cheers!

  • chimney stack repair

    I found Paul to be friendly and efficient,having assessed the problem he very quickly gave me a favourable quote and before long he was all done and dusted! He was very professional,on time and even though the job was more involed than anticipated I wasn't charged any more. Highly reccomended.

  • New chimney pot, repair 1 small section of guttering

    Excellent job done by Paul. Turned up on time, kept to schedule, and offered some advice on future work having talked through exactly what he'd done. Would have no hesitation in using again.

  • Overflowing gutter needs fixing

    This is the second time I've used KDBS, this time for fixing some guttering. The job was urgent, which I explained to Paul, and he came to give a quote the next day. He rang me with the quote and offered to do the job straight away, which I accepted as the quote was very reasonable. Paul's work solved the problem, and again I'm very staisfied with the job done.

  • Open up fireplace for range cooker and insert lintel

    This is the second time I've used Paul. Once again, he has done a tidy job, I'm very happy. The building inspector was equally happy with the RSJs put in the chimney breast.

  • Remove Soil vent pipe and replace surrounding tiles

    Great service and quality of work from a top bloke, would not hesitate to contact again and reccommend 100%

  • Chimney Flashing Repairs & Repointing

    Everything done very professionally done from initial contact right through to the on time and within budget completion of the work. He identified the problems including some that previous "tradesmen" hadn't. I have already asked for a quote for the next job.

  • remove air bricks

    The removal of the air bricks themselves was very good, I can hardly see where they used to be on the outside, as you were able to source matching bricks. We should have discussed more the process of removing the vent inside and filling and making good the interior wall. Although the job has again ended up quite nicely done, it took longer than I expected.

  • leaking roof repairs

    Paul successfully diagnosed and made good a long standing defect on our 100+ year old home that 2 previous companies missed and undertook bodged repairs that never resolved the problem. We've got a 5 year guarantee on the work undertaken which happens to look good as well as having solved the problem. Tidy, timely and in my opinion excellent value for money.

  • Rebuild front garden wall.

    Paul is very reliable and does his best to make sure the job is finished to a high standard.
    Very good communication with me at all times.
    I would highly recommend Paul.

  • Small roof on a bay window is letting in rain

    I'm very pleased with the work Paul of KDBS has done on the bay window roof and pointing the house. The work was finished on time even though the jobs presented difficulties due to inheriting old problems from the previous occupant.

  • Replacing wooden floor boards after rubble clean up

    We're pleased with the job that Paul has done. He also helped us fix small work outside of our contract and didn't charge us for it. Paul worked over the weekends to finish the job and we highly appreciate his effort to deliver on time despite the issue with the pine flooring that was ordered. We recommend Paul to anyone looking for a builder they can trust.

  • Tiles need replacing

    First class service, Paul kept in touch to let me know what was going on and even started and finished the job earlier than he said he could. He also pointed out a couple of other things which may need doing but put absolutely no pressure on me to do them straight away or to get him to do them.

    Once the job was completed Paul sent me photographs (this was a rental property) and didn't ask for payment until I was happy with the job (which I was straight away).

    I'm that happy with the work Paul did I've asked him to come and quote for a couple of jobs at my home address.

    In summary - great communication, photos of work provided, advice but no pressure on other jobs required and no payment until work complete and checked - GREAT WORK, I'D HIGHLY RECOMMEND PAUL TO ANYONE.

  • Roof repairs, flashings and dismantle and cap chimney.

    Paul has done a fantastic job. All work was completed when stated and to a high standard. The pointing and partial rebuild on the chimneys looks great and old broken slates have been replaced with new ones, giving my old, tired roof an extra few years of life. Paul is a trustworthy guy and very knowledgable in a number of areas. Communication was great and Paul sent pictures detailing some of the work he undertook. I will definitely use Paul again and will definitely recommend. Thanks for a good job well done.

  • guttering quotes

    Excellent and very prompt service. Upon installation of the gutter support trays it appeared our roof needed more attention than initially thought - batons had rotted away and the felt had receded quite a bit and needed urgent attention. Very happy with Paul's service, very thorough, reliable and trustworthy as well as being very reasonably priced compared to other businesses in the area. Paul kept us informed of the job all the way through and even worked til 7.30 at night after finishing another job to look into the problem areas. Would definitely use again in the future and recommend to friends and family.

  • Flat roof repair

    Paul was great - he came when he said he would, explained the job, made me feel comfortable about what it would entail and did a first class repair to my roof. Best of all he didn't want payment until he was sure it was fixed which demonstrated a confidence and a pride in his work.

  • fix leak

    Job done. Cant ask for more than that.

  • Front of house

    KDBS are a trustworthy company who take pride in their work, Paul is very professional turns up when he says and does a very good job guaranteed. My gutter was full of leaves which had blocked the drain pipe causing water to pour over top like a waterfall. Paul found problem in two minutes and while on the roof he found a tile had come loose and he fixed that. I did not expect the blocked gutter to be part of the guarantee but he did not charge me for what he said was a small job. I recommend KDBS to everyone 100% Thanks :)

  • Inspect and repair roof

    We were very happy with Paul. He has been very professional with everything and explained things well. He was also very good at providing evidence of the work done with photographs on his phone. Over all we have faith in Paul and would definitely recommend and use his company again. We have additional comfort in the 5 year guarantee on his work.

  • Repair slate roof

    Paul did a great job for us and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

    Good work. Thank you.

  • Fix Leaky Roof

    I asked KDBS to come and assess a leaky roof, and quote for fixing the problem and any other work that looked like it needed doing while they were there. Paul gave a fair quote for the neccesary work. He was mindful of completing the job before the weather turned and would not accept payment until I was happy that the problem had been fixed. I would definitely use KDBS again and recommend them to others.

  • gable end needs some pointing and then covered with PVC

    Many thanks for a very professional job done. For forty years our gable end has been a concern to us with various builders simply filling in the damage that appeared and not really providing a satisfactory solution. Thanks to your advice and quality workmanship at a very reasonable price we feel reassured that whatever climate changes come our way our gable end will be watertight. The fact that you gave a 5 year warranty on your work is also very helpful.

  • Full roof replacement

    Carl (and Paul) from KDBS did a great job on our roof. Invited quotes for full roof replacement but they honestly told us that it wasn't needed, and instead did thorough repairs.

Thanks!

  • damp

    Paul arrived right on time as we agreed. He quickly put me at ease that he knew exactly what he was looking at and he took the time to look over all the possibilities of what my problem might be. While he was doing this he noticed that one of my windows hadn't been silicone sealed and he immediately did this for me. After looking over the damp problems for a good half an hour Paul advised me that it could be resolved very easily by myself at a very small cost. After all this, Paul refused to take any payment for the time spent, the advise given and the silicone job that he did for me.
    Really impressed by Paul's attitude/professionalism. Would definately recommend him for any roofing/building work you may need doing.

  • repair bay window

    We hired Paul to repair our bay window roof after reading the reviews left by his other customers. Very good job done, neat and tidy work and on a freezing Good Friday afternoon. Would'nt hesitate to use him again for any work we need doing in future.

    Very happy with the service KDBS provided from initial quote through to completion of the work. I would definitely use Paul and his team again for any future work needed on the house and would certainly recommend KDBS to others.

  • Remove floating ceiling and other jobs

    Work completed to a very high standard. Customer care exceptional. No job to big or small and advice given when needed. Due to the nature of the job additional trades brought in (ie plumber and joiner) all worked to the same high standard and completed the work quickly efficiently. All kept the house as clean as possible and tidied up every day before they left.

  • Re-pointing wall

    Great job from Paul. Excellent price and no waiting around for the job to be done. He came form one job straight round to do mine ( and it was bitterly cold ! ) he came round the day after seeing the job. Smashing lad and I will be hiring Paul for other work . Advise you do the same ..Cheers Paul

  • Flashing and Pointing

    Fast and efficient in their response with a fantastic attitude that is sadly rare elsewhere. Great job, great price.

  • Damp / Flashing Repair

    Paul was very efficient, prompt and friendly in responding to our job and offered a free, no obligation quote. Despite both bad weather and our incredibly hectic schedules, his patience and perseverance was much appreciated and the job was completed, weather permitting, in no time at all and to an excellent standard. Paul is a lovely, friendly yet professional guy and took great care and attention to ensure that the job was completed to a good standard with a guarantee to provide additional customer security. We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him and would use him again in the future.

  • Chimney/roof leak leading to a wet chimney breast

    Paul has been great from the beginning, coming out at a time arranged to assess the problem and to provide a quote and work plan within a few days. On hiring Paul, a time was promptly arranged, but the awful weather meant it had to be re-arranged, he returned with no interuptions to my plans to begin and complete the job.
    Would definately look to using Paul again for any building repairs.

  • Roof check & repair

    Friendly, efficient and cost effective service.
    Paul was very honest in his appraisal of the work to be done & was proactive in advising me of things I didn't need to do rather than just doing everything I mentioned & charging me more. I'd happily recommend him.

  • Repointing chimney, clearing guttering

    Paul and his team of guys are fantastic! Quick to get the job done, fair prices, genuine honest and reliable (words usually not associated with builders!).

    I 100% recommend them to anyone who's after a good builder/roofer to do an even better job.

    Thanks Paul and all your guys, you made moving into and fixing up our first home easy peasy!

    Sarah

  • Various repointing & garage wall replacement

  • Fixing Roof

    Paul is very helpful and honest, answering all my questions ( some of them silly) about building works with patience and understanding. He did the work very efficiently and took time to advise me on further repairs, bearing my budget in mind. The roof looks great and I will be trouble free now for years! I am looking forward to working with them again on other parts of the house. Highly recommended professional and a great guy.

  • Upstairs flat gutter repair/replacement

    Excellent communication, fast completion of work and he came out 3x to check work and complete minor paintwork to improve the overall finish. Paul even turned up in person once the job was completed to discuss the finish to make sure I was happy with it. He did all of this for only a £400.00 job and I cannot recommend him more highly.

  • roofing repairs

    Excellent Service. Very happy with the work done. Even came in slighlty cheaper than quoted which was a very welcome surprise. Have now hired him to do some work on my conervatory roof on the back of this job.

  • Leak linked to our chimney stack

    Paul did a great job from the outset, coming out promptly to review the job and getting up to the roof to actually look at the extent of the issue so he could provide an accurate quote. Karl then came to make the repairs and did an excellent job - arrived on time, did the job thoroughly and cleaned up afterwards too. A very fair quote for an excellent service - will contact Paul for any future work we need doing!

  • replace fascia & Guttering

    Agree with all the other positive comments posted.

    Paul is extremely professional and always kept me informed throughout the process. I didn't know where to look for someone to repair my roof but was glad to find this site and come across this building company. Will use again and happy to recommend. First class service.

  • Leak from chimney stack

    Very friendly and efficient service. The weather hampered progress but work was completed as soon possible. Asked for advice about second chimney stack and Paul sorted it at no extra cost. Very happy, would recommend.

  • Repair ridge tiles, broken tile, lead, some new felting

    Although I never got to meet Paul in person due to my shift work I was very happy with the information that I received either by phone or through this site. Paul was very easy to communicate with and gave a clear and fair quote with a complete break down of the work to be done, a day was arranged that was good for me and Paul sent one of his roofers. Karl arrived early and got straight on with the work without any fuss on a very cold morning and completed the work in good time and to a very high standard. KDBS is a good family run business with a good work force, I will not hesitate in using them again for future work.

  • New flashing on chimney stack

    We were impressed with Paul, particularly as he took time to talk us through what work was required on our chimney - using photos he had taken - and he responded quickly to our call. We've had the work done now and whilst we cannot see the finished job we trust it's in good order and would recommend Paul to others.

  • Replace missing tiles

    After having a few tiles missing from our roof, Paul found there was 16 missing and our secondary chimney needed some cement on it and Paul did that for free! The quote was cheaper than most and he even gave us a price breakdown. Upfront and honest. If your looking for a trustworthy company choose KDBS! - thank you Paul

  • Pointing

    Paul took on a number of jobs to prepare my house for renting. He and his team were prompt, efficient and clean. They did everything I asked of them to a high standard and on time. Where I had believed major work was required Paul didn't simply agree and charge for the most expensive work but was honest, probably to his detriment financially.

    Paul also gave advice on other work I was considering and how to complete it in the most cost effective way.

    It is so refreshing to find a straight-talking, no nonsense, honest builder and I couldn't recommend him highly enough.

  • Roofer needed to fix leaking roof

    I agree with previous comments posted here. Paul took a decent amount of time finding out what the problem with our roof was and giving advice about what repair would be most effective. He was quick to keep in touch to arrange a day to visit and was easy to contact. Karl did the work and seemed to do a good job. Guarantee of his work arrived a couple of days later, hopefully next time it rains the water won't be getting in!

  • Leak from chimney into loft.

    Very happy with the service. Paul sorted out everything as he said and made a thorough inspection to try and determine the problem and Karl did an excellent job on the work. Will be using them again in the future!

  • Some of roof concrete is knocked off by the storm

    More than satisfied, I consented to the price over the phone, but when job was completed I was told this is still under guarantee from previous work done. Thanks Paul and thanks for the extra care.

  • Ridge tiles

    Paul has done a very good job on our roof, after a bad experience with other builders. He assessed the job whilst i was at work, so did not need to be in. Job was done over christmas week. Paul showed photos on his phone what was wrong and explained what he was doing. Job done in an afternoon and left looking tidy and roof how it should, level! Not had wet weather but it comes with 5 year warranty, so very happy with service provided and would recommend 100%.

  • Damp due to ?leaking roof

    Paul responded quickly to my request for a roofer. He came to assess the situation straight away, communicated clearly and promptly about what work needed to be done and got the job done really quickly. As I could not be there when he did the work he took photos on his phone and came over later to explain and show me what he had done. I would definitely recommend Paul to others!

  • garage roof leak

    Thanks Paul for the work. My leak was a difficult one to trace but Paul returned a number of times including when it was raining to make sure he found it. Good at keeping in touch and not leaving you wondering whats going to happen. Excellant service and very pleased with the work.

  • Flat Roof Leak

    Paul did a great job on our roof. Good communication from initial contact to job completion, would highly recommend.

  • small roofing job

    Thanks Karl
    The work was done efficiently with no fuss or mess and as per the quote.

  • Lead flashing chimney, felt on bay window, brickwork

    Being new to the home owning game I had no idea what to expect re prices etc when I had leaks from my chimney and bay window so thought my first quote from another builder was the norm until Paul at KDBS offered to do the work for a much better price. Paul did a great job which has certainly been tested due to the dodgy weather we've had of late. He gets the job done quick but also took time to explain exactly what was being done and gave me advice about other diy projects I had around the house. I would definitely recommend him for roofing/building work and have saved his number in my phone book should my house decide to cost me any more money.

  • Condition of roofs and gutters

    Paul came out quickly, and gave us a very competitive quote. Highly recommended!

  • Leaky roof

    I am so pleased to have a guaranteed water proof roof for the next five years Paul is professional and I would recommend KDBS. Karl worked all day Friday until it got it dark he came back Saturday morning to finish off. I asked him if he would remove two old tv cables that were loose and banged against my roof, he very kindly did this even though it was not part of the original job one of my neighbours was present and was also very impressed and took their phone number for future use.

  • broken slate tile on roof

    Paul has been very helpful from the first contact. Probably the best thing was that he communicated everything very clearly - a message for when Carl would come around and inspect the roof problem, a reasonable quote, a message about when they would start the job and how long it would take. As a customer you want clarity about the quote and timing of the work and honest people to do the job. They have been professional and pleasant to work with, job done without any problems. Would def. use them again.

  • Repairations to front guttering and bay window

    Paul did a good quality, professional job at a very reasonable price. I would recommend him!

  • Replace external downpipe

    Prompt response from Paul with details of an extremely reasonable quote.

    Couldn't recommend him highly enough

  • Guttering Repairs

    Good communications and efficently resolved my issue. Many thanks and highly recommended.

  • Re-pointing of ridge tiles on roof

    Very impressed. Paul replied straight away to the job I'd posted, came around to assess the work quickly and advised on the repair needed. We thought the quote for the work to be done was excellent and included a 5 year guarantee. The work was carried out the following week very efficiently and to very high standard. Was a pleasure to be able to hire Paul for the job and will be recommending to family and friends if they need any roofing work carried out.

    Absolutely delighted, Paul came out and sorted the problem straight away with no fuss, he was very very reasonably priced and i would not hesitate to recommend him to any of my family and friends.

  • Repair chimney flashing and guttering

    Good quality work on our minor roof repairs and, while I doubt we'll need it, the reassurance of a long guarantee. Particularly useful to discuss the methods of repair to the chimney flashing as this prompted me to reject a considerably cheaper quotation on the grounds that I suspected the cheaper guy's work wouldn't stay fixed for very long. Thank you.

  • cap chimley

    Excellent service. On time and answers your calls, clean and tidy work to a top notch standard. Takes the time to explain the work needed and is easy to get on with. There was a lot more work to do than was actually quoted for, but Paul kindly worked this into the quote and kept to the price. I am happy to recomend him to anyone and will use him again.

  • Damage to roof below ridge tiles; possible ingress.

    I recently sent positive feedback which, it seems, may not have been received. However, I am pleased to confirm, once again, that I was more than satisfied with the work undertaken.

    Paul provided clear, helpful and useful advice at every stage of the job. This was particularly important as the work required turned out to be more extensive than originally anticipated by the insurance company.

    Paul kept in close contact at all times and arranged to complete the work at my convenience. His charges were very reasonable, the work completed to a high standard and was fully guaranteed for materials and labour.

  • Repairs to roof after storm on 28 June

    It was very tricky to work out what was wrong with our roof, which was leaking at a spot that was awkward to see. Most people we approached wouldn't even take the effort to try and find the cause of the problem but Paul was very thorough in locating the problem, visiting us a number of times before doing the job to make sure he'd got it right. His pricing was very reasonable too, and he discussed the different options with us and how much each one would cost. It's too early to tell if the problem's been fixed completely as we need to wait for some very heavy rain, but I've no doubt that if the problem does persist, Paul will get to the bottom of it.

  • Guttering replacement

    Paul came out very quickly and gave me a competitive quote. Work was carried out to a high standard. I'm very happy and would definitely recommend and would use again. Thank you!

    Efficient and swift all work done to excellent level .

  • replace flashing and need pointing at front of property

    Paul did a great job for me with my roof. He diagnosed the problem to be different to what I initially thought, saving me huge amounts of money and also took the time to explain things to me. He charged an extremely reasonable fee and didn't even take payment for weeks until I was certain that the problem was fixed! On top of that, when he arrived to collect the due payment he also carried out further work on the problem area (despite the fact that I had no problems since initial work was carried out and completed) so that he could give me a long term guarantee - without incurring any additional costs. It really gave me peace of mind and I would not hesitate to recommend Paul in the future. He values the customer and he ensures that the customer is happy with the job.

  • Leaking gutter

    Speedy response and very reasonable quote. Job well done, I would definitely recommend KDBS and certainly use again. Thank you.

    Having used Paul before for numerous smaller jobs(Roof repairs, Chimney Work, External Painting, Flat Felt roof replacement) his work ethic was a known quantity. This job although bigger than previous jobs was approached in the same proffesional manner. His attention to detail is good and he is open to discussion regarding the finishing touches that make all the difference. We are both really pleased with the finished conversion and I would recommend Paul to anybody.

He then came to do the work very promptly and had his own water and power so meant I didn't need to wait in. As well as the roof work and guttering, I had 2 missing ridge tiles which Paul quoted to replace. He found out that these tiles weren't available any more so sourced new tiles at cost and came back and replaced all the ridge tiles at no extra charge which was very good of him.

    I was realy pleased with Paul's work. His fully detailed tender was very reassuring and he carried out the work perfectly.

Throughout the time he was here he was cheerful and helpful and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

He has offered advice on other work that we are hoping to do ourselves, all of which takes up his time.

    Richard, Gosforth.

  • exterior brickwork repairs

    Very pleased with the work that Paul and his team carried out, I would definitely consider employing KDBS in the future.

  • Roofing quotation

    I hired Paul to do some work on my guttering and potentially sort out a leak into my dining room. Paul gave a very reasonable quote for the work but was only able to complete some of the job due to access issues on the building and concerns over safety. I have no complaints over the work that was done or the price.

    KDBS's reply:

    Well shocked, i done some roof & gutter work and Neil was pleased as he said in feedback, the problem was i was supposed to do a small bit of pointing above a timber framed conservatory, on further inspection i noticed the timber joists where rotted, as Neil did not want to pay for scaffolding i thought it was to dangerous to climb above, we agreed to each other to leave the pointing. if Neil had no complaints as he has stated he should of rated me positive,
    i work so hard to keep my ratings at 100 per cent, i thought Neutral was unfair.

Everything was restored to pre decorating state( better than in fact) at the end of the day and Trudie is a demon with the hoover. I am very happy with my newly painted bathroom toilet and bedroom and will definitly reccommend KDBS to others. I already have a list of other Jobs for Paul to do for us in the future.

    Paul from KDBS was very friendly and accommodating. I'm very hard to get in touch with at times as I work long and sometimes late hours and Paul was very patient especially considering so many others said they wouldn't get out of bed for such a small job.

    I would definitely recommend Paul and KDBS and will use them again in future for the many more repairs I need doing on my property.

  • Ridge tiles on garage roof need resetting

    Paul did an excellent job and we would definitely use him again.
    Very efficient and thorough when assessing the work to be done. His attention to detail far exceeded that of any other builder we had to look at the job. Communicated effectively throughout and took pride in his work. He came when he said he would and did not make false promises about when he could do the job. He is respectful of the property and clears/cleans the site when the job is finished. A builder you can rely on.
    Thanks Paul.

  • New Tiled Roof

    Paul replied to my message very quickly. He came out very early the next morning which was the only time I could be home to show him the troubles we have had. He then came back at a later time, completed the works to a very high standard and even took before and after shots with his camera to show me the work he had completed. Paul give me an invoice and full guarantee so I knew then I hadn’t hired a cowboy. Over all Paul done an excellent job. I am so pleased with the work completed and I have already passed his name and number on to a friend. I would highly recommend Paul and his business to anyone I know and most of all anyone using this site. This is the first time I have used my builder and it did not let me down. Thanks again for all your help.

  • Broken/Missing Guttering

    We needed our gutter repairing after it was damaged by snow. Had no problems at all with KDBS - got a very reasonable quote quickly, work was completed on time to a very high standard. Had a very minor problem Paul came out again very quickly for and was rectified with no fuss. Very highly recommended.

  • guttering needs replacing

  • Roofing - Water Through Back of House

    Paul was extremely helpful and honest, being from down south I felt most of the quotes had a London tax added! Paul took time to find and solve the problem, which in the end wasn’t actually my roof. He gave me an affordable quote and even took pictures of the problems so I could see.

    Not only did he fix the water coming through the back of my flat which was worrying me, he took time to help and give me advice on DIY. I have several more jobs to be done, which I will definitely be calling Paul for and have recommended him to friends & family.

  • Felt roof repair on outhouse

    I'm over the moon to have found KDBS and will recommend them to all. I've just had Trudy fix my toilet and can honestly say what a pleasure it was to have such a lovely lady working in my home. I'm ashamed to say she left my bathroom cleaner than when she started. Very professional, prompt and efficient service.

  • guttering

    I found Paul to be very helpful and honest, i was very worried about being ripped off but the opposite was true. He repaired the gutter very quickly, telling me what the problem was and even showed me it worked by pouring water down it. I will be recomending him to all my friends

  • Plaster downstairs cloakroom walls and ceiling

    Excellent work, in particular the plastering and the overall management by Paul. Would certainly use again and recommend to anyone. Cheers, GK

  • Guttering

    Paul came and did the job with no fuss and even did a few other things that needed doing for no extra charge. We also needed a particular part to complete the job, not only did he travel considerable distance to find it he wouldn't take any payment for the work he had already completed until the said part had been aquired, he returned when the part had been aquired and finished the job off perfectly. I would recommend Paul to anyone, not only is he friendly, he is efficient and clearly good at what he does. I would not hesitate to contact him again should the need arise.

  • Roof tiles, Guttering & Electrics

    After what seemed a series of unfortunate events due to the bad weather, and endless let downs from other companies, I stumbled across this site, thinking nothing more than 'it's worth a shot'. I got a few interested builders, and requested quotes. Paul come out within a couple of hours to give me a quote.

    After given the go-ahead from the insurance company, Paul came back the next day to do the work. He supplied new gutter and fascia to the front, put back roof slates, sorted the pointing on gable and fixed my leaking gutter at the rear plus to top it all off a lovely new external wall light... move over the Jones's!

    Additionaly Paul fixed my leaking bathroom sink and uncloseable garden gate - Fantastic!

    All the work was carried out in the same day and the price was very reasonable. I would certainly recommend KDBS and re-use their services for other jobs about the house.

    I would like to thank Paul personally for his hard work - you're bloomin marvelous and went above and beyond the call of duty! First class service! Thank you x

  • fascia board + guttering replaced at rear of house.

    Paul responded to our job request very promptly. He gave us a reasonable price and sound advice. He turned up on the day of the job even in the difficult winter weather conditions. The work was completed to an excellent standard. I would not hesitate to hire Paul again, he was true professional and went the extra mile for us.

    Job well done, many thanks to Paul.

    Heather Corbett .

  • Re-felting flat garage roof

    Excellent job done. Paul worked very hard to sort out several unforeseen problems. I liked the way that he took the time to keep me informed. Also impressed by the fact that he guarantees his work for 5 years. Thoroughly recommended.

  • Replace roof

    Paul's assessment of the problem with my roof was first rate, with him providing a clear breakdown of the problem and giving alternative solutions so I could pick the most appropriate for my needs.

    Due to being a popular builder, I knew I would have to wait for Paul to start the work, but I was prepared to wait. Unfortunately bad weather delayed things further, but Paul kept me informed at all times. Finally when a week with good weather was finally forecast, Paul seemed able to re-jig his schedule and work extra hours and days to fit my roofing job in and ensure as much of the work as possible could be done in the dry.

    Paul sent me photos throughout the course of the job to keep me up to date with progress (I am a landlord and do not live local to the property so this was invaluable) and at when he had finished to check I was happy with the work completed.

    Paul took the time to contact me when he noticed a problem with the chimney whilst working on the roof. Thanks to his observation and quick thinking he was able to fix this problem too for a very reasonable sum whist the scaffolding was already in place, easily saving me over £300 in future expense.

    I am incredibly pleased with the finish and quality of the work carried out. Paul is a true professional, who takes great pride in his work.

    In future, should I have any further maintenance issues in this geographical area, Paul will be the first person I contact.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Paul converted my garage into a utility and garden lounge room. He's very efficient, hard working and finished everything off beautifully. I'm very, very pleased I used Paul for this project, I couldn't be happier. Paul had some really good ideas for the conversion and he quoted a very realistic price so I was happy to use him. He didn't disappoint me and I would definitely recommend him.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Paul altered our garage extension, he lifted the roof and converted it into a laundry and study area. We got a long with Paul just fine, he's excellent. He finished off the job by painting and decorating it so there was no cleaning up to do after-wards. It was spot budget too. His time-keeping was good, Paul's perfectionist and I sometimes had to tell him to go home at the end of the day. We've had no problems at all. His Price was reasonable, I'd definitely use him again, I really can't fault him.
