Refurbish, redecorate, small electrics Restoration & Refurbishment
Excellent. Michael and his team did an excellent job of refurbishing a room in our house, this included fitting brick slips to two walls (which look excellent), painting, electrics, some plumbing work and damp works. He and his team were always there on time, very polite and hard working as well as great attention to detail. At the end they tidied up and took away all the excess building debris. I am very pleased and would 100% recommend them.

French doors, flooring and general refurb Restoration & Refurbishment
We engaged Home Services to repair and update the entire flat. Works carried out:
Prep'd, repaired (lots of repairs) and decorated the whole flat
Fitted new laminate flooring throughout the whole flat
Fitted new skirting throughout
Installed new radiators throughout
Installed new gas hob and serviced the boiler
Installed new toilet and basin and laid new tiled flooring, and tanked the walls
Renovated a rotting french door
Repaired cracked masonry and applied weather proof sealant
The standard of work was very good and we are pleased with the transformation.
Both Theo and Dan (who did most of the work) were professional and thorough, and Michael was always on hand to pick up any issues. Considering the amount of work needed there were very few issues that came up, and when they did they were easily resolved.
Home Services provide a wide breadth of trades and services and each is carried out to a high standard. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and would definitely use again.

Michael and team were great throughout whole job. Competitive in price but great in quality. A few bumps as expected due to lack of materials because of COVID which delayed job by 1 week - but overcame this and the work was finished with great quality and really pleased with job.

Painting and decorating Painting & Decorating
We hired Michael Brebe and his team from Home Services to decorate our bedroom and ensuite bathroom, cut to size and replace a bath side panel and replaster and redecorate a section of wall in the kitchen. This involved repairing cracks in the ceiling and sanding and repairing the windows before repainting.I was impressed with the care the team took to protect our existing carpeting. Leo and Dan, and later Michael, worked hard, carefully and skilfully without causing any noise, dust or disruption. They cleared up after themselves every night and did an excellent job. The job took a day longer than they estimated but they worked until late into the last evening to get the job finished. When we discovered on Whit Sunday that we could not close one of the newly painted windows, Dan and a colleague came round promptly to fix the problem.
I found all members of the team polite, honest and a pleasure to have around. They have done an excellent job which I am very pleased with. I will not hesitate to use them again for other projects and thoroughly recommend them to other clients for general home services.An excellent job at a good price Home Services. Thank you very much.

Bathroom refit Bathroom Fitting
We hired Michael and his team (Niko and Jonny) for complete refurbishment of our Bathroom and Kitchen. Niko and Jonny have done a great work for both the bathroom and the kitchen. They were very professional throughout, kept an eye on every little detail and many a times they came out with a better idea. This is what I liked most about them - they treated as if they are working on their own projects and every little detail was taken care of. Though the refurbishment took a lot longer than expected but it was not their fault at all. I will highly recommend Michael and his team to anyone who is interested.
Thanks Michael, Jonny and Niko for a great work!!!

We hired Home Services to undertake our kitchen refurbishment and we couldn't be more delighted with our decision. Michael and his team were very professional throughout. They adhered to the quote and didn't push us for any extras. The attention to every detail in the finish was impeccable. When we encountered any issues they came up with alternative solutions for us. We also really liked that they were very mindful about maintaining our property in good order. We will almost certainly use Kingston Home Services next time we need some work done and would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them to others.

Having recently migrated out of London, I needed a trustworthy and reliable tradesman who would complete a job to a professional standard and use his initiative to address any hidden issues they encounter. After struggling for a few months and being disappointed by some tradesmen, I came across Michael.
Job completed whilst I was abroad with no issues. Went above and beyond of what was requested and look forward to using his team again in the future.

I posted a job for a plasterer at £200 a day . Michel left me with a guy that did not speak English which caused some communication problems immediately. The worker proceeded to apply bonding coat to the walls. Day one was ok and the quality of the work was just passable as a base coat.
Day two was a disaster . The guy supplied to me whome I left on site made a total screw up of the skimming work. Absolutely appalling.
In Michels favour he did respond and attend with two guys for several hours as they sanded and applied polyfiller to areas. The repair work was a fail I'm sad to say. I have been a plasterer / Builder for 30 years and have never seen such a poor job done .Even after the repair effort I have had to fully 're skim several areas before we could decorate.
I would not hire again for any job.
Beware of the Romanian plasterer !!
stephen_crowe - 8th Jan, 2018 Negative feedback
Home Services's reply:
I’m sorry about your frustration Stephen and the fact that it made you leave this unfair feedback. Although I understand you were under pressure in terms of timings and the state of your job was when we got involved.
The initial agreement was to try to get as much bonding and skimming done as we can in a day’s work and the rest would be done by Stephen. So we step in to do work for a competitor builder making sure the job is done in a day without needing any more instructions and we are being criticised that the worker doesn’t speak proper English. Why does that matter when you are in a situation that you are delaying your project? I though you needed a man to work and not a man to chat with.
After the first day, Stephen was surprised of how much my worker has done and tried his best to convince us to come back the next day which I then agreed to even though the work had to be carried out on a Sunday. Again, we did an exception and a favor he clearly did not deserve.
After the 2nd day he come up with complaints of minor marks on plaster and insisted to return, so we did and we made some extra plastering and repairs free of charge but all Stephen wanted was to come back for a 3rd day and to try to finish his project when he clearly knew we are unable to continue as we had other commitments.
I’m happy to provide the client as a reference as he appreciated the job we did!
We always endeavour to look after our clients and go the extra mile as part of our commitment!

Removal of wallpaper, painting and fitting new lights Painting & Decorating
John and team were excellent. Their quote was market average. We were on a relatively tight timeline and they managed to complete all the work within the agreed schedules. There were some delays with materials from our side but John came back at a convenient time to finish the work. Our only negative experience was dealing with Michael himself, who was singularly unpleasant to deal with - he took 3 days to give us a quote despite knowing that we are on a tight schedule, never responded to messages on time, never returned calls, (but would expect me to drop everything to respond ASAP to his attempts to increase the price post-quote for things like "removing and replacing radiators" - for a plaster and paint job!), would talk over me and not listen, & above all, had the most unnecessarily rude, brusque and aggressive manner of talking regarding the smallest of issues (perhaps not used to a woman client calling the shots?). After about a week of tolerating this, I strongly told him off, at which point he handed over to John in a huff - best result ever, because John is an absolute pleasure to deal with - professional, efficient, polite and good at his work. The work was completed to a good standard and any niggles were efficiently attended to. John communicates well - he kept us informed at all times. All in all, job well done, in spite of Michael who truly lets his excellent team down. We would certainly hire John and team again for future jobs, and recommend these guys.

John and his team were fantastic. We had most of our 2 story flat in Richmond painted (all except bedrooms/bathrooms). Caulking was also part of the job.

Quick reply from them (I posted the job at 1-30 pm, they called me at 2-30 pm and they agreed to come to my house later in the afternoon for a quote). Price was good so job started on the same day by Ovi. He needed extra equipment during the job so drove back to his office but adequately only charged for the time he was at the flat. Ovi also clearly announced what the cost of the materials would be. I rate him with good standards of work and good presentation/professional behaviour also (a proper invoice was sent by email later on the same day). I will hire them again if the need arises.

Fit shed door, fix small garden wall Handyman
Michael and Ovi were both very pleasant and professional in their communication and their work.
They estimated the job would take between 1 1/2 to 2 hours, and it took Ovi 2 1/2 hours to complete the work. If I had known that I would actually be charged for 3 hours I would have asked him to stay and complete the paintwork on the door, and perhaps some other odd jobs since I have paid for this time.
I was slightly disappointed that Ovi only glued the brickwork on the wall, rather than cement it as was agreed. I am also worried that the quality of the shed door he chose to fit is not good enough to withstand the weather without warping. Unfortunately Ovi arrived an hour later than we had agreed to start the work.
However, Ovi was very helpful in fitting a lampshade upstairs which was not part of the job, and I felt very comfortable with him working in my home. He also kindly left a paint brush and palette so that I could finish the paintwork.

Home Services's reply:
I was surprised for this feedback as client was happy at the end of the job, sometimes people are very strange anyway:
1."The client" knew that we charge on hourly basis, we Did Informed Before that we will charge 3 hour labour just to avoid this.
Just to add that we spent over an hour of our time to get the materials which we did not charge like others.
But having this said after 2.1/2 hour "The client" said that needs to go out and we could not finish the painting on the back side of the door.
2.Job Was Done by gluing the bricks with adhesive we had, where was the problem?
After seeing this feedback we actually went back to please "The client" another hour at no charge.
We are focused on providing good customer service.

We were out when work was done but the two guys appeared very hard working and were very keen to get the job done. Overall would recommend for all types of small jobs.

Overall positive - score 7/10
Michael sent one of his guys to help me out on this job.
I orginally had the job schdeuled in for a Wednesday but Michael asked to change to a Friday (as he had a bigger job on) so being a flexible / reasonable person I rescheduled all heavy machinery, plant equipment and the expert installer I had commissioned to fit his schedule..
The chap was keen to work and got stuck into the simple jobs I asked him to do. The standard of work was ok but not tip top (i.e. he is not a perfectionist), for example, Ovi installed some guttering and he did a reasonable job. I asked him to cut up a desk for the skip which he could have done in the time but didn't for some reason.
Positives: hard working, affable, adapted quite well to doing work he hadn't done before (Rainwater Harvesting System Install) & eager to learn.
Negatives: a bit of an attitiude on him, turned up with no tools, turned up a 15 minutes late, didn't want to do more than his 'contracted' 8 hour day. £180 daily rate was too much for what he was able to do on this job.
I will be happy to use again but I will be clearer on what I expect next time.

Re-tiling bathroom area Tiling
Michael's workman arrived promptly at 9am on Monday. Work was carried to a very satisfactory standard, and at a price that was very reasonable (which I kept apprised off throughout the job). I particularly appreciated workman's creative suggestion to overcome problem of some missing tiles that couldn't be sourced in any local shops. Michael checked in periodically to make sure work was proceeding well. I will certainly be using Michael's business again
An extremely satisfied customer in TW1

Fitting wooden bath panel Handyman
It was very easy to fix up this job, with Mike being available to communicate and discuss it with and he was able to book it up nice and quickly at a time that suited me. He gave an accurate quote, both in terms of the time it would take and the pricing.
Ovi arrived exactly when he arranged and was well informed and made suggestions. He did a very neat, professional job- exactly how I'd pictured it. He tidied up once he'd finished. My flat now looks much better! It seems excellent value and I'll certainly use KHS next time I need a handyman.

Mike responded very quickly to my enquiry and sent round his colleague Adrian within an hour. It was a fiddly little job but Adrian was polite, efficient and got the job done quickly. I'd recommend using them.

Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder Painting & Decorating
We asked Michael to decorate a house which was in a very poor state as the previous owner was a heavy smoker and owned a few dogs. The KHS team planned the project and managed it very efficiently. They were very proactive and helpful sorting unplanned improvements that the house required which was great. We are now moving into the house which looks much better, the finish is great too. A decorating and plumbing job very well done. Will be contacting them again!

I have used Michael on several occasions for a variety of handyman jobs and I have nothing but praise for him. He is extremely helpful and polite and is always conscious of budget and will try and resolve problems using his initiative and skills rather than looking for an expensive solution. He is extremely reliable, practical and a perfectionist with his work.
