  • Full house inside and out

    We took this builder on and paid him £10000 upfront and he failed to complete the work and what work he did complete re windows and doors was poor workmanship. The windows are too small and there are gaps down the sides of the doors and windows that cause wind rain and snow to enter the property, a wall was knocked down and not secured causing further damage, he damaged a glass unit and failed to return to repair it. He requested money upfront for goods to do the job and has failed to supply them all to me and failed to provide the receipts. I have had to take him to court, after 12mths I today found that I have won the case and he now owes me £4800, court costs and a charge of 8% interest on that money since October last year and until he pays it. The stress arguements and upsets it has caused between me and my partner I would not wish on anyone else so please be warned about this Company. He is fine on small jobs but do not pay anything to him upfront till the work is finished to your satisfaction. He now has a judgement against him that will affect his and his wife's credit rating. For me I went without running water downstairs and no kitchen sink for 10mths as i was not allowed to do anyhting whilst court proceedings went on. I have found a really good builder now and am having to pay out more money to complete the work even having to buy new double glazed units and front door. I can show pictures of his poor workmanship if anyone wants to contact me.

  • Fascia & gutter repair

    Krystoff did a great job. Would use him again.

  • Driveway paving

  • Decorate, repair woodwork and replace kitchen window

    Good time keeping, polite manner and flexible. Slight problem with finishing touches on decoration work, but overall okay!

  • 2 sinks and 2 toilets fitted

    Krzysztof arrived promptly and got the job done despite some unforseen difficulties. He is a conscientious worker and can be relied on to finish the task. Many thanks.

  • replacement of cast iron down pipe and re-pointing

    Krzysztof from Renovation Scotland carried out the required work for us in the freezing snow and winds. He visited twice to explain fully what work he was going to carry out and provided his guarantee and work itemised in writing after the job. Very pleasant man to deal with and we would have no hesitation recommending him, a very hard worker.


  • replace missing roof tiles, check felt roof and gutters

    Job was completed quickly and efficiently.

  • Repair to small leak in flat roof

  • Faicas, Sofits, Gutters and Downpipes

    Fantastic workmanship. I am very impressed with the job he has done, he has made the appearance of my property look so much better. Very dedicated and works incredibly hard to get the job done. I would have no hesitation in contacting him for any future work or recommending him to other people. I am so happy that I hired Krzysztof to replace my gutters, fascias and sofits. Thank you.

  • Fascias / Soffits / Cladding

    Ref: Replacing Fascia,soffit, gutter with uPVC and dry verge system

    From start to finish the experience of dealing with Renovation Scotland and Krzysztof was a pleasure.

    > Renovation Scotland provided a quote for work required very quickly and included all options discussed. Krzysztof listened to my requirements but also offered advice and guidance when required with no hard sell unlike some of the firms that came to quote.

    > Whilst work was in progress we were very impressed with Krzysztofs work ethic. Work was carried out in all weather conditions and he did not stop until a full days work was done.

    > For the work a contract was drawn up giving details of work to be carried out, costs and estimated dates for completion. We found this very reassuring together with fact that Renovation Scotland has full liability insurance.

    > Quality of work was excellent.

    In summary I would highly recommend Renovation Scotland both from a customer experience point of view and for the quality of service.

  • Felt roofing

    Very nice man he replaced felt on our summer house and garden hut.
    we would definately use him again.

  • Flat roof, chimney and a couple of slates

  • Plaster skimming of 2 bedrooms (approx 10 x10)

    Really nice guy. Landed up doing a completely different job - painting my fascias and soffits and made a very good job. Would definitely hire again.

  • Water leaking into room from roof

  • Roof repair

    Very professional, helpful man. Job done quickly and perfectly and some advice was also given. Very impressed. Thank you!

  • Tiles replaced, facings replaced

    Reliable, got job done, would hire again.

  • Garden and Driveway and Double Glazing of house

    Krzysztof is a very personable person and certainly knows his stuff. He works through whatever the weather throws at him and turns up early and leaves late and even works weekends if needed. He took on a massive job which included Fencing, Walls, New Double Glazing and a very large area to monobloc. However it is the small extra touches that he provides which puts him above others offering the same service, in fact he has already done some roof work for my parents as well. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Please ask him to show you the photos of the work carried out here, you will be very impressed.

  • Replace kitchen roof after water damage from upstairs

    I can't give enough praise. Came out next day for quote and even did job over weekend as I need job done quickly. I would highly reccomend and would diffinitly use again. A very big thankyou :-).

  • Insurance quote reqd to replace rainwater guttering

  • Residential roofing job.

    We cannot recommend Mr. Wydra highly enough. He was extremely personable, pleasant to deal with and polite. The job ended up being to completely replace our roof, install new guttering, new cladding boards on the side of the house and to install a new Velux window in the bathroom. All of this work was completed to a very high standard, with a minimum of hassle and disruption and we couldn't be more pleased with it. Mr Wydra is a completely reliable and enormously hard worker - can be relied on to turn up on time and work until the job is done, with a minimum of fuss and mess.

  • Replace water-damaged floor, fix shower leak etc

    Krzysztof stripped out and refitted a whole bathroom and floor/substructure for me and did an extremely high quality job. He is a conscientious, thorough and hard-working All Trades contractor who refuses to stop until the job is completed to perfection. I would recommend him highly to anyone.

  • Hut/Shed Felt Roof Repair - 4m x 3m

    A very good guy. Krzysztof turned up when he said he would, did a lovely job and even cleaned up afterwards. To be recommended.

  • Gable end coping stone/cement cast cracked/burst

  • Decking

    Very reliable person, hard working and did a very good job. I would hire him again for any further works I need done.

  • Plastering repairs

    Many thanks for your help

  • external woodwork of house needs painting

  • Checking tiled roof for leaks, replacing wooden fascia

  • Concrete steps damaged by frost need repair

    Overall very happy with the work and the reliability and attention to detail of the work. He did what he said he would do, on time and in a very professional manner. Only slight downside was the fact that the original quote was not based on a site visit - and therefore it went up due to the serious nature of the damage. Would certainly recommend Krzyzstof to any of my friends but would ensure that he comes first to see the job. I would recommend this for all quotes now on Mybuilder as it is not really possible to give accurate quote through pictures alone. Hope this helps

  • out door joinery work

    Krzysztof arrived at the time and day he had stated and completed the job to my satisfaction with the minimum of fuss.I would use him again.

  • Concrete garage floor laid

    Did a good job at a good price. Turned up when he said he would. I would certainly recommend him for work.

  • Fencing

    Fence was constructed very well as I wanted it. Will hire again for any further works. Hardworking and reliable person.

  • Bathroom tiling

    The job turned out to be bigger than we originally thought which required the whole floor and wall being replaced. Krzys again completed the job to perfection and I would have no hesitation in employing him again

  • bathroom refurbishment

    Hi Krzys, is very capable and finishes the jobs off completely. He is good at giving an assessment of what needs done and the timelines it would take to complete. I would have no hesitation in employing him again.

  • roofing

  • Reroofing ex forestry cottage

    Krzysztof has a done a superb and thorough job on my roof. I am very pleased with his workmanship. He is a very reliable and an honest, hard worker. I have no hesitation in recommending him.

  • Roof check in Fife

    Krzysztof is a pleasant man who showed up on time and completed all the work in a few hours at a reasonable price. I'm very satisfied and would use him again.
    Thanks Krzysztof.


    Krzyzstof did a very thorough, neat and tidy job of our guttering - it looks a million dollars now compared to before. He arrived when he said, did what he said, and was very accomodating and keen to please in terms of making his recommendations but listening carefully to our preferences. Would recommend him for sure.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    He is very precise, he's on time, he pays great attention to detail, he's a pleasant man and he's also very reasonable. He's very open minded and he was very willing to discuss the project and was very flexible through-out. I would recommend him to my absolute best friends, that's all I can say.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    I'm very happy to provide a reference for Krzysztof. He did an exceptionally good job for me. It was fairly priced, he brought it in on time, to budget and I was very pleased with the end result. In fact, he effectively re-tiled my whole roof!

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    He was extremely hard-working, he did the work very well and even my neighbours were extremely impressed! He did a variety of things for me. I got him in because my roof was leaking but when I saw how well he worked, I mentioned my other projects to him. He put in a drive way for me and he laid a lawn. He's very good, I was certainly impressed. I needed some electrical work doing but Krzysztof was very honest and explained that he did not have the certificates and qualifications needed to carry out electrical work. I would have no hesitation in recommending him, he's a very competent workman.
