Mike General Building

  • Entire house to be painted inside

  • 4 bedroom house needs painting and some walls filling

    Razvan and his team were outstanding! It is so difficult to find a trusted,reliable, professional and honest tradesman. We can confidently say - we have found one of the best! Nothing was too much trouble for him. We had to wait a few weeks as he was busy, but we can see why.
    Our newly purchased 4 bedroom house needed a makeover and he was able to work through each room whilst we were working from home with such competency and atunement to the noise and interruptions throughout the day. We have already booked more jobs and will be certainly returning back to Razvan as our 'go - to' Handyman! Highly recommended if you want a professional finish.

  • Swap bathroom to bedroom, make new bathroom in study

  • Internal and external decoration/snagging-type works

  • Paint wall and ceiling

    Amazing work completed. Excellent communication throughout. Takes time to do an excellent job. I am pleased with his work and hope to call again in the future

  • Paint walls and ceilings

    Razvan and Costelo did an excellent, professional job of painting our walls and ceilings and were reliable, tidy and good company.

  • Front of house repairs and redecoration

    The work done by Mike General Building is great. The workmanship is good quality and it is nice to see him taking pride in his work. The front of our house looks lovely now with all the rotten woodwork replaced, a nice finish on the painting and quality repairs. Very happy customer!

  • Bathroom refit to make life easier.

    Mike and his team worked to provide excellent customer. They took all our needs on board especially looking after my husband who has special needs. They patiently put in place all the aids needed for him to shower safely. They were at all times polite, leaving the site clean and tidy everyday. We would have no hesitation in recommending them and indeed would like to know they would be available for us if the need should arise. Mike helped to get the supplies from Victoriaplum when they failed to deliver many
    items which relieved our worries greatly. Thank you to all of them. Charlotte Andrews.

  • Conversion of ground floor flat

    Mike has been absolutely fantastic in our ground floor conversion. Communication is brilliant with regular updates on progress - especially as we have been living away from the property. I completely trust Mike and his team and would definitely recommend and use him again for future work.

  • New bathroom and toilet

    Mike and Tommy were super friendly, extremely good at their trade, honest, and fairly priced - he did a whole bathroom and toilet refit to PERFECTION. So much hard work went into this job as we had new plumbing and new electrics put in, and Mike always found solutions to any problems and was always focused on delivering the results that we wanted. Mike communicated at all times, involving us in all decisions and asking questions to clarify his understanding of our plans. He also kept on good terms with our neighbours during the work too. Mike and Tommy are really nice guys too who love a laugh, we had fun chatting to them - in summary, a great tradesman that we are happy to know, and one that we will continue to recommend to our friends and family. Thank you Mike + Tommy!!

  • 1930s house refurbishment

  • Repaint house, bathroom + kitchen fitting + some repair

    I selected Razvan of Mike General Building for my refurb project which included full semi detached house renovation, ensuite bathrooms, kitchen, tiling, rendering etc! The house was left in a mess by previous tenants!

    Razvan had a professional approach and competitive pricing . I am really pleased with the work. The work was carried out to very high standards, the team was always at site on time and Razvan was also always on site. Any additional work was discussed in advance and quoted reasonably.

    The work was completed in time. I highly recommend him for those looking for honest and hard working builders that get the job done with good standards and in a timely manner. A+ to Raz and his team!

  • Refurbishment of 4 bed house inc bathrooms and kitchen

    We used Mike and the team to refurbish our house, the biggest part of which was knocking down a supporting wall between the kitchen and dining room and installing a new kitchen. There were also various other bits of refurbishment around the house.

    The whole team were very hard working, professional and the quality is excellent. The price was fair for the work done. We would recommend them to anyone.

  • Flat: relocate kitchen/build bedroom/renovate bathroom

    We had a large amount of renovation work done to the entirety of our quite small flat. Mike and his team always arrived promptly in the mornings and cleaned up at the end of each day. They were also mindful of the neighbours and we did not receive complaints, which was a relief. Everything was priced honestly and with the minimum of fuss. We sourced a lot of fixings and fittings ourselves, and Mike helpfully advised us on exactly which ones to buy. Because of the size of our place, we had to improvise quite a lot to make everything fit and sometimes that meant making last-minute changes to the layout. Work would sometimes have to be redone but Mike and Andrew were always willing to facilitate our requests and often came up with good suggestions for how to implement the changes. I accept this was probably not the easiest of projects for Mike and his team but we're very happy with the end result, and we would definitely not hesitate to recommend him.

  • Renovate 3 bedroom house

    ***The Quote***
    I did my research and requested for quotes from 6 different companies. Mike was first to respond and first to come out. He was thorough and promised to send a quote back which he did within a day or so. Mike was very competitive with his quotes and had a small team quoting 10-12 weeks but in the end it wasn't the costs that won it was Mike's quick turnaround in getting back to me and his polite nature.

    ****The team***
    Mike's team consists of 4 of them, they all have their different specialities and we got to know them very well. They are one of the most hard working team out there, monday-saturday starting before 8 and leaving late.

    ***The work***
    Although there are 4 of them only, the days and hours they worked made up the time and makes it seem like there's an army of them.

    ***The communication***
    Communication is second to none, Mike would get back to you ASAP on anything and at anytime too. He would meticulously let you know when and what things need to be bought too, so the works went very smoothly.

    I could not be happier picking Mike and his team. Normally I would only go by recommendation as it's an important choice but I trusted my gut instincts and it has paid off. I really would recommend Mike to anyone and I would be asking him to quote for jobs we want done in the near future too. He is always polite to us and our neighbours and likes cracking the odd joke too, very entertaining!

  • New Bathroom to be Fitted ASAP

    Mike has been an absolute star since first contact through to finishing our bathroom refurb. No job was too small or too big. The thing about Mike is he tells you exactly how it is, what it will cost you and why producing receipts along the way for any additional materials needed like grout or filler.

    We live in a 1930s house and I know that this made the job a lot tougher than Mike originally thought. For instance the pipework was like spaghetti junction underneath the floorboards, however even though this may have been frustrating Mike always managed to find a solution when problems arose.

    The team that Mike works with are fantastic as well. Very courteous, work VERY VERY hard (not taking tea breaks every 5 minutes) the quality of the finish and tiling is second to none and we will definitely be using Mike and his team when the loft conversion is done.

    Highly recommended and look forward to using your services again. Thank you Mike the bathroom is amazing

  • Complete refurb and renovation

    Mike and his team have been excellent. They work extraordinarily hard undertaking long hours. They pay attention to detail. They have found solution to problems that have arisen with an old house that has not been modernised. They have made positive suggestions. They have always been friendly and they are very responsive. Really good on email and WhatsApp so you don’t have to take calls all the time. Equally when I ring him he answers promptly.

    They also only work on one project at a time so there’s no sub-contracting and Mike does all the project management as a single point of contact.

    We found mike from another project he did with local neighbours in Wimbledon. I’ve offered to provide a reference too and bring clients along to the house.

  • New bathroom

    Mike and his team work hard, arriving promptly in the mornings at the agreed times and they put in a full days work including sometimes at the weekends.
    I had a complete bathroom refurb and the finish all round is excellent.
    Mike also did the decorating of two bedrooms and the landing for me and the finish of the walls and ceilings are of a very high standard.
    I wholeheartedly recommend this company.

  • New bathroom to refit and laminate in room

    Best team i ever had.i highly recomend to anyone who needs the bath to be fix in time and good price for labour.i could see the lads they w’got long experience in tiles fixing.they are very professional. Best regards Cristian

  • Refurb of flat

    Mike and his team is very punctual, and reliable. He refurbished 3 bathrooms, and painted the the flat, and also some smaller jobs. He has finished the job in good time and left the flat clean. He is easy to work with and we will be inviting him back for further jobs. Thank you

  • Flat Refurbishment

    Mike was hired to do a complete refurbishment for our flat, ready for new tenants. Overall, I found Mike to be very good. Specifically:

    1) At the start of the job, Mike was happy to provide an itemised quotation and was happy to be negotiable on price. His pricing was clear
    2) Mike was good in suggesting things that needed doing and did not need doing in the flat and throughout the job he was happy to suggest additional items that he felt would improve the overall flats image
    3) He was very kind in letting prospective tenants in the flat as we were away and showing them around which was a huge help
    4) He was very communicative and was always happy to speak about the job
    5) The quality of his work was very good and the finish was of a very high standard

    Overall I would highly recommend Mike and his team to complete your next job


  • Decoration and refurbishment of Victorian terrace

    Appointing Mike was one of the best decisions we have ever made. His team have done an excellent job fully refurbishing our property. They were polite, hard working, always punctual and reliable, tidy, and performed everything to a high standard and for a very reasonable price. Mike is extremely knowledgeable and was always on hand to offer good advice and insight, keeping us fully informed at all times, and became something of a trusted adviser for the whole project. We were so impressed with his work that we also ended up getting him to do all of our electrics (fully certified), and to finish off our plumbing work after our original plumber made a mess of things. Costing was always honest and straightforward and agreed upfront, with any additional materials fully receipted with no extra mark-up. Mike clearly takes great pride in what he does and went above and beyond what I would have expected to ensure everything was done to meet his high standards. There were a number of issues he identified as the work progressed that I would have expected him to charge extra to resolve but he simply fixed them no questions asked - a clear indication of his commitment to the project. Above all Mike is a lovely guy and a pleasure to work with, and we will definitely be using him and his team again for any further work in the future.

  • Renovation of kitchen and adjoining living area

    I used Mike and his colleagues who were very hard working and helpful for a refurb of kitchen/living area and hallway. There was demolition of a chimney which was done pretty quickly and safely. I am a woman who lives on my own and never felt intimidated.. They were friendly and were open to my feedback. The work that has been done so far in a good time frame. Took a little longer than expected due to some delivery issues. But Mike was flexible about this. There were some extra costs, but Mike was upfront and clear about them. Gave good advice and guidance of what was possible. The quality has been good. Mike will be led by you so you need to be clear about you want.
    The job is almost finished and he has been happy to come back and do some finishing touches that need doing.
    I would recommend Mike. He is approachable and will try and make sure you get what you want. But will be honest about what can and can't be done.
    I generally sourced my own materials so do remember this when you are budgeting and for timings.
    I would use him again and plan to do so for future jobs. I felt the cost was reasonable and quality good.

  • Refurb, electrics & plumb - Raynes Park

    Mike and his team did a very professional job for our 2 bed flat full refurb including new electrics, plumbing, kitchen, bathrooms and full plaster/paint/tile. They are all honest, friendly, polite and very hard working, at the property consistently 8am-6pm everyday and even Saturday and Sunday when needed, to finish on time. The quality of work is high and his team are skilled - Mike takes a lot of pride in this and is willing to keep going until you are fully satisfied (changing things if needed). Throughout the project he communicated with us daily and was open to our feedback and requests. We are really pleased with our new home and would highly recommend him & use him and his team again.

    One thing to be aware of : building materials are sourced, but if you want specific fittings you will need to source yourself and allow time / budget for this.

  • Painting 2 bed semi detached house

  • 2 Storey extension with plans

  • Several restoration work

    Razvan and his colleague did several works in our kitchen and the living room. They have surprised me with their professional service. Everything looks great and after the work they´ve cleaned everything. Highly recommended!

  • Refurb House

    I found Mike General building through my ‘Mybuilder’ and I’m glad I did!

    Mike and Andrew have done an excellent job on our 3 bed house which needed a complete renovation. This included new electrics, central heating & plumbing, knocking walls out, fitting a new kitchen and new bathroom, installing an additional toilet as well as full plastering through. A number of issues were found along the way (it was an old house) and they were dealt with without impacting the timescales of the build.
    This was all completed in an astonishing 10 weeks!

    They also managed to resolve the on-going issues we had with our windows.
    We had new windows installed (through a separate window installation company) and we had to get Mike to fix the faulty installation as they were leaking due to the poor original installation.

    Mike updated us regularly with progress of the work and any decisions that needed to be made were agreed by us before he went ahead. Both Mike and Andrew were willing to give advice and help with suggestions on design and suggested fixtures and fittings that would be suitable.

    They are hardworking and trustworthy.

    They worked on the one job and were at our house between 7.30 -18.00 Monday - Saturday and at times have been there earlier and working till late.

    I would highly recommend Mike and will definitely be using him again for other work we have lined up in the future. The only reason we didn’t get more work done at the time we ran out of money.

  • Refitting bathroom

    Mike has done an amazing job, I got him in just to take out the bathroom and replace everything new at first, because he did such a good job I also got him to re paint the whole inside of the house and rip up the old flooring and lay the new one down in the kitchen, dining room and hallway. He takes care with his work and made sure everything was finished to a high standard. He kept me informed every step of the way and always checked before going out and buying any materials. He would leave the house very clean and tidy and the end of each day. I would highly recommend him and would use him again myself.

  • Flat Renovation for sale (*1bedroom masonette flat)

  • Refurb 4bed house

    Mike and his team have beautifully refurbished our 4 bedroom house which needed a complete overhaul. Mike and his partner Andrew were very hard working starting each day at 7:30 thus managing to complete the entire job in 7 weeks. We had bathrooms changed and tiled. Kitchen ripped out and installed and new flooring put in across the entire house in addition to regular painting/decorating. The team showed a great amount of pride in their work and had a very close attention to detail. Andrew in particular was always able to find solutions to do trickier tasks. I would without a doubt recommend Mike and his team to anyone looking to get work conducted in their house. I expect I will be using them again for future extension / expansion projects as well. They were very reliable and efficient. All in all very satisfied and glad I chose Mike to do the work.

  • Exterior and interior work

    Mike has been very reliable with starting job as agreed and completed within the week. The exterior painting has been done to a very high standard and with excellent attention to detail. Mike and his team worked hard and were friendly and obliging. I would definitely recommend Mike for quality and fair pricing for the work.

  • Simple painting/decorating for 1 bed flat

    Mike was business like and keen. Completed the works ahead of the schedule he provided & was happy to take on some additional works I added. Standard of works was satisfactory

  • Redecorating flat

  • Restore and refurbish a 3 bed house

    We thought our refurbishment job site is the worst in our life, but Mike told us it is the second worst he has seen! This shows how experienced Mike is!

    Our previous tenants had left the house in a terrible status with many things broken and dirty, so the job was to restore and redecorate the whole house. We are very lucky and fortunate to have hired Mike to help us. We find Mike honest, helpful, hard-working and proactive.

    Mike and his team stayed on site during the entire project period, which was very important as we needed to finish it ASAP to get the next tenancy going. This was a huge advantage compared to our previous experience with the builder not turning up everyday which meant a small project could last for months!

    He and his team always arrive on time, work hard, give a lot of advice, go extra mile to help with smaller tasks, such as changing bulbs, replacing shower hose/head, checking fire alarms, fixing pop up plug, cleaning outside drain, etc. He is very good at explaining and giving practical advice on the things that we are not at all familiar with. After project, Mike left the site clean and tidy.

    We'd like to thank him very much for a great job done and I'd ask him to do any other building work I may have in the future!

  • Painting and decorating of 3 bedroom 1930s house.

    I am very happy to recommend Mike and his team. They were to paint and decorate our four bed 30s house. This included two bathrooms, which were completely tiled, with new art deco style suites installed, the bathrooms look absolutely amazing, there were no half measures, all waterproofing etc was done properly. Advice was given at each stage so we could make informed decisions about what to do. The walls were stripped and re plastered where necessary, satin white on the wood, which was sanded down to an acceptable level before the new paint, white matt on the walls and ceilings. The top extension room floor was re laid with 100 year old pine floorboards, the rest of the house also had some floor boards replaced. Mike and his team then sanded stained and varnished all of the floorboards including the stairs to our specification, they came out amazing, the contrast to the white walls and dark floors looks beautiful. All light switches were replaced, door knobs, new skirting boards were fitted to many rooms, cast iron radiators were fitted to each room. Mike and his team were courteous, friendly, clean and respectful, punctual and hard workers. So much so that I have now hired Mike and his team to do our garden, decking, landscaping, and the front driveway, and plan to hire them for a planned side return extension.

    I would highly recommend Mike General Building. He was able to start within a few days of the job posting which was a huge plus as anyone else I got a quote from wouldn't be able to start for weeks.

  • Remove old and fit new bathroom suite (small bathroom)

    Mike and Tomas worked incredibly hard on our small bathroom project, quoting a very competitive rate, with flexibility on start date. Despite a number of unexpected set backs during the project due to the previous poor workmanship, they professionally tackled every new issue and left us with a result we are delighted with. They were clean & tidy throughout the build, cleaning floors and washing up afterwards, and always contactable via text and on the phone. Our bathroom has been finished to an excellent standard, with considerable attention to detail on their part. We would highly recommend Mike GB.

  • Bathroom fitting

    Mike and his team did a great job. The job involved completely refitting a bathroom and toilet, replacing all tiles, installing extractor fans and removing the horrible artex ceilings. Mike offered suggestions and kept me well informed throughout the process. The job was completed in just over a week and I couldn't be happier with the results. They left the area exceptionally tidy at the end of each day.

    I would not hesitate to hire Mike and his team again.

    Mike was great. he turned up on time, worked very hard with his team. Did some extra jobs as I needed.

He understood this property was for a rental and he would minimise costs where possible and save money with his clever ideas. His price was very competitive. I would definitely like him to come and work for me again.

    Mike and his friend were reliable and hard working and came back when I spotted something. Will use again.

    We requested for Mike and his colleague to strip out all of the old carpet and laminate flooring throughout the entire house. Then required repainting of all internal walls, ceilings and woodwork including the existing kitchen cupboards.

    Mike and his colleague were very professional, punctual and hardworking. Overall we are extremely satisfied with the work completed. The job was finished to a high standard within the agreed timescale and original quoted amount even though we requested for a few additional small tasks to be added during the job. He was happy to collect our paint from the hardware store and even offered to paint the walls in two additional external areas for no extra charge.

    Would definitely use again and recommend highly.

  • Painting 6 bedrooms + 2 down stairs room + kitchen

    Mike and Christiano did an excellent job. They are very pleasant guys and work hard all day.

    Mike and Christopher did a very good job. They are very punctual with time and very hard working. They completed the job as per schedule and always work to achieve the best standard of work. I would recommend them.

  • Renovate hallway

  • external and internal redecoration including repointing

  • Painting in a two-bed flat

    Painting work completed to a really good standard, would use again.

  • Flat Painting

    Mike is very friendly and a good plasterer. The finish on the walls and ceiling was also very good. Unfortunately on the detail he failed terribly. The woodwork only had one coat applied and there were missed gaps everywhere. I had to spend 4 hours redoing it. On the windows, some parts of the frame were missed on the painting side altogether. Some of the windows were not opened to be painted either, so once you managed to open the windows you had to completely re-do them. The biggest problem however was my brand new wooden flooring. He did not cover it during the works and after consulting with a professional floor cleaning company the only option I have to get someone in to sand and varnish it.

    Mike General Building's reply:

    The skirting was done by previous builder and had 2 cm gaps everywhere, metal windows was 100 years old and most of them blocked already. All the floors was coverd with plastic sheets and dust sheets, and before finish we mop all the floors in the flat.
    Very shocked at this feed back as throughout job customer was very happy and not once mentioned a problem.

  • painting 3 rooms +/-15 by 15 ft

    Mike and his mate did a lovely job plasterboarding the ceiling, skimming, painting, removing a brick fire surround, rendering the inside of the opened up fireplace. Three rooms in the house are now perfectly finished and ready for us to move into. On time, good communicators, precise, tidy. Job well done. Highly recommend. Will employ again.

  • Re-painting of windowsills

    This tradesman (I use that word loosely) discredits other hard-working, honest professionals. If you hire him you may as well be throwing your money away. I hired him in good faith to fix our front window sill, and after reassuring my husband that the paint work would last 10 years, it lasted two weeks. The sill is bubbling, rusting and cracking. Three times I have tried to contact him to come and rectify the sub-standard job, to which he was reluctantly going to fix it when the weather dried up. The latest response this morning was, however, via text: "the job was done properly. I have pictures to prove that is not my fault the sill is rotten and collapsing soon. I done what u ask me to. Don't waste my time with that sill anymore is not worth it. There are more important things in life to worry". We are very disappointed with the bad practice of this man, and feel completely ripped off. I urge you to stay away from this tradesman, we are kicking ourselves that we did not take the other negative comments more seriously. I've asked for a refund also, to which he now does not respond. He will no doubt reply defending his work, but do not trust him.

    Mike General Building's reply:

    This customer have zero knowledge what building means!
    First they want a cheap job paying £100 for labour and materials painting a window sill which is nearly collapsing and damage by rain which was need fully restoration costing around £800. Preparation and painting with special outside materials was done and picture was taken to prove that. For painting no one will never give you warranty is not a product you buy from store dear customers.
    Next time if you want a long lasting result you spend more money and ask tradesman for best advice.
    About my ratings they are all perfect and people using our company 10 years ago why they are still using as for huge projects still using our company???????

  • Internally redecorate small cottage

    We chose Mike and his team for this job, because they gave us a good price and confidence that they could do the job well. They worked hard and completed the job quickly (more quickly than we would have imagined!) and we felt that we got good value for money. We had a few requests at the end and Mike attended to these immediately. Overall we were happy with the service.

  • Urgent painter needed to paint my living room

  • Painting Flat in W8

    Mike and his team worked really hard redecorating my flat in Kensington. Painting and finishing was completed to a high standard. Mike provided a very competitive quote and completed the job on time and to budget.

  • Paint and decoration of renovation project

  • House Renovation

    Mike will do the work, albeit below par in areas- but when anything goes wrong unfortunately you're never be able to get in contact with Mike again. I am extremely disappointed in Mike and the way he has behaved. I feel his knowledge in some areas is limited. He fit new pipes for shower valves which immediately started leaking through the walls. When we showed him, he said he had fixed it, to which we later found out that he just painted the walls again to cover the wet stains. After he hurriedly finished the renovation job and left he was never to be seen or heard from again. But what really upset me was that his pipe work was now leaking everywhere, and despite me emailing/ calling & texting for almost 7 weeks Mike did a good job of ignoring us- to which we found out that he had blocked us as he simply did not want to fix his work. I had plumbers in who confirmed that the leaks were attributed to his workmanship but despite myself and my husband asking Mike nicely to correct this - he continued to ignore us. The alarming thing was that we simply wanted him just to fix the leaks he created- we never asked for him to correct the patchy paint/dire sealant/lumpy walls (supposedly skimmed) or even the waterproof plastering he did, that is now damp again. I think it's safe to say that we really would have liked this to be amicable because he is a nice guy when he's not complaining but he's handled this situation in such an unprofessional way that it overshadowed everything else.

  • Redecoration empty house and carpentry repairs/renewals

  • Decorate 2 bedroom flat

    Mike arrived on time and his competitive quote secured him the job. He is very experienced and a great pleasure to deal with. I have very high standards and his workmanship is first class. He is highly recommended, professional, polite and completed the job on time.

  • Painting a gym and dining room area in a primary school

  • Painter

    Mike did a great job and quick one too. I'm now getting him to do more work for me. I'm very happy with the service!

  • Internal painting

    Needed an urgent interior decoration for a Student Let.
    Job done on time and at a good price.
    Would use again


    Mike did a great job of redecorating our hallway, and replaced some of the old wallpaper which he matched very well. He also fixed a section of ceiling which needed re-plastering, and repainted our front door and front gate, our entrance is now as good as new. He came back to tidy up the front door and gate which had somehow got a bit scuffed and left us some left over paint just in case we should need it. I would definitely recommend Mike and his team, they were courteous, polite, hardworking and helpful and I will be using their services again in the near future.

  • Internal painting. Loft room & hall, stairs and landing

    I would highly recommend mike general building.
    They turned up on time everyday and were friendly and tidy.
    They completed all the work we requested and were really helpful and flexible when we asked for extra work.
    They completed the job on time and for a fair price.
    We're really pleased with the work they did and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them or use them again.

  • Interior painting of 2 bedroom house

  • Paint 3 bed flat

    Friendly, reliable and professional.

  • Redo bathroom

    Mike and his partner Vlad were extremely efficient and committed. We had a newly bought flat to be renovated and very little time. They completed an enormous amount of work in 15 days. The last few days they worked until very late and even brought their friends along in order to finish the job on time. The price was fair too I think. Lovely, friendly guys who know what they are doing. I absolutely recommend them to anybody looking to have any home improvement/ repair done.

  • Staines: Repaint walls of 3 bed house

  • Paint and decorate 3 bedroom house

    Mike has just finished painting and decorating our 3 three bedroom house. The work required Mike and his team had to strip layers of ancient wallpaper,smooth and sand all the walls in the house which was quite a job. He has painted our house from to bottom and it looks amazing. His multi skilled team also hung blinds, mounted our tv to the wall and fitted 2 doors aswell as boxing in hideous pipework running up the interior wall. We were on a tight budget and really should have had the ceiling replastered which we just could'nt afford at the moment. Mike and his team done an amazing job of patching up the 1930's ceiling for a fraction of the cost of replacing it.

    I cannot praise Mike Gernal Building enough, they turned up when expected and worked into the evening to ensure our house was ready for the carpet fitters.

    I will be contacting these guys again for any other jobs I need doing around the house.

  • Flat painting and tiling

    Mike and team painted the entirety of my two bed flat including addressing some significant water damaged areas (now invisible) and retiled the bathroom and kitchen. Electrics and plumbing work where included and all skillfully addressed. Attributes that where particularly impressive where: (1) Hard work. Mike and team (2-4 as each stage needed) where ready to go by 8am (or earlier) every day for 2 weeks including weekends which they volunteered to get the job done as promptly as they could; (2) Job management was good. Mike communicated immediately if he had a question/problem and agreed a plan. Mike stuck to the estimate and used the MyBuilder site to propose/agree revised estimates where I asked him to do additional work. Both Mike and I knew where we were at every point. (3) Personal touch: I felt Mike and all team members where very consciensous, supported my decisions as to what I wanted to do and thought laterally about problems they came across. Overall: Professional, intelligent, hardworking, proud of the end result - and friendly to boot!

  • Painting and decorating

    Mike decorated my Mum's living room walls, ceiling and woodwork. He was able to do the work quickly and at reasonable price. I wasnt satisfied with the coverage on the woodwork and he arranged to come back and give it another coat. Happy with the final result.

  • Painting 4 rooms

    Mike has done an amazing job on our house. Originally we started off just wanting to get 4 rooms painted but we ended up asking him on to re-paint the whole house inside. He and his team painted 3 bedrooms, all hallways, living/dining room, bathroom and kitchen. He's taken off several layers of ancient wallpaper, stripped and sanded walls multiple times, replastered in places and left everything with a finish we did not think was achievable, given the state the walls were in to start with. He's also removed carpets from the whole house, replaced lights, removed fitted wardrobes, painted stairs, doors etc.

    He's done an outstanding job and must have worked ridiculously hard to get it all done in 8 days, exactly as he promised.

    Mike left everything very tidy, and was in the house working whilst we were on holiday. Was very trustworthy and he gave us several calls to update us on the progress and to ask about any questions that arose throughout the job. Everything came in on time and on budget. Have found him extremely reliable and he is also a very nice guy. We'd use him again and recommend him highly!

  • Remove old wardrobe and repaint 2 rooms

    I am really happy with the work mike did for me. The job involved removing an old wardrobe and repainting two rooms. He was on time, tidy and professional and did the work to a very high standard. He also helped me by doing a few additional jobs whilst working on the two rooms. His price was very good also. I will be using him again for other jobs and would highly recommend him.

  • Room and hallway to be redecorated & new wallpaper

    Michael and his colleague acquitted themselves very well with the task at hand .
    Job involved the painting & decorating of a hallway and a living room as well (including the woodwork)
    Also , the previous wallpaper needed to be stripped down as well (and a new one to be put in place)- which in turn needed the replacement of some radiators .
    Michael and his work colleague came in timely and proceeded with the task very diligently and professionally .
    They have offered various valuable pieces of advice and also managed to execute some ad-hoc tasks
    that needed to be completed as well.
    Pleased with the result ; would recommend them to other people and would hire them again if need be.
