Robert & Co

  • Bathroom refit

    I used this site after I had been let down by my regular plumber of many years due to illness. I employ staff for a living and I have to say that having read all the reviews, and examined Roberts Profile I was reasonably happy to have him tender for the work.
    However his negative feedback from one customer did leave me with an element of concern as we always see the negative posts.
    Despite this he offered to visit me promptly and when I met him to tender he did offer me significant reassurance. He was knowledgeable, professional, and understanding of our needs even solving another issue we faced before the job started at this time for a fraction of the cost of the initial plan with results that to be honest are fantastic. All in all I opted for him to do the job after comparing his knowledge as much as his quote which was fair. Not too cheap and not over the top.
    Potential clients I need not have worried. Immediately on starting the job Robert and his team ( Dad and uncle) were punctual professional, neat and tidy. The job they did is fantastic. If you are reading Roberts profile and that single negative review is causing you concern, please believe me. Don’t let it worry you. You will not be disappointed. My only concern is that I simcerely hope this review doesn’t cause me delays in getting my other bathrooms done because Robert gets too booked up.
    In short, finish of the highest quality at a price that is fair by likeable and professional tradesmen. Highly recommended.

  • Full bathroom install etc

  • New Bathroom x 2

  • Property refurb

    Robert and his team were fantastic! He’s done a complete renovation on my house and everything is perfect. He was polite and courteous and managed the renovation himself from start to finish. The before and after results are fantastic. I couldn’t of asked for more. He wasn’t the cheapest quote I had however I’m so pleased I decided to pay a little more and go with someone I trusted. The house looks brand new and I am so excited to move in.

  • replacement of bathroom floor and replacement of shower

    A first class service in all respects.

    Robert came and gave me a quote for a fair price came and did the job at a time that suited me.

    What a job he did, came in and didn't stop until the job was done rectified all the faults of the last tradesman, replaced the floor and refitted the bathroom, replaced and rerouted faulty pipework, replaced tiling. All work to a very high standard, seeing Roberts work next to the work of the previous person just shows how good Roberts is.

    I am very pleased because not only did Robert do an excellent job on time for a good price but also because I now have a go to builder for any other work.

    If you need any building work doing Robert is the man you need to use.

  • Bathroom fitting

    Robert has just completed my bathroom installation and I am absolutely delighted with it - the service was excellent, they left the house immaculate every night, and were so friendly and accommodating. The job included a complete overhaul, from removal of the old bathroom suite, tiles & floor to fitting the new suite, plumbing, tiling, electrics and painting and every aspect of the work is perfect. Thankyou so much Robert (and your Dad!) First class work. I would not hesitate to use you again and would highly recommend you. Julie Gordon

  • New bathroom

    Robert & his Dad have been amazing! The bathroom fitting was arranged at a time which worked well for us & Robert was on hand through text when we asked for help while purchasing items which really helped! The new bathroom has been completed to a really high standard & Robert has kept us up to date throughout the process. I would definitely recommend this company!

  • Full bathroom installation

    What can I say?! From start to finish Robert and his Dad were punctual, polite, honest and neat. They delivered a bathroom to the highest standard, Robert is nothing but a perfectionist and is extremely skilled at what he does. We are already talking about hiring Robert and co for our next job- a downstairs toilet! Thankyou so much to you and your team- we are so happy to have found a tradesman we like and trust.

  • New Bathroom Fitted

  • Small bathroom refurb

    Robert Rizoiu & Co refurbished my bathroom earlier this year; he was polite and easy to work with and the finished job looked good. I quickly realised there was a fault with the electric shower, but when I contacted Robert he was not interested. When it was independently examined the unit was plumbed into the hot water feed.

    Meanwhile, the bathroom hot taps ran cold water, and vice versa. When the bath panel was removed an old pipe joined with mastic had been used to take the waste from the new basin. A woodworm infested batten was screwed to the floorboards - and there was a part-filled bag of expanded filler was under the bath.

    I found a tradesperson who understands the value of customer service to correct the plumbing. I could have called Robert again, but during my first call it was crystal clear a meaningful discussion leading to a mutual resolution was not an option.

    From experience:
    1. Make double-sure all the work is acceptable before writing a review
    2. Have a low threshold for resolving any problems yourself
    3. Good luck!

    Robert & Co's reply:

    Hello Mrs Yvonne,

    1st thing : when you contacted me ,I was in holliday, not how you mentioned in the "red feedback" .. NOT INTERESTED
    2nd thing : I don't think it's good for anybody to distroy the reputation for maybe a mistake or maybe not ! in that case you had to contact me and wait to come back from holidays to resolve the problem or to see if what I done it's right or not .. you can say anything on here .. but how to explain ?! after 7 months have you notice that error ??? Also , I am fully insured .. why you didn't contacted me for claim on my insurance to wait them to inspect the problems ??? Also , I seen you left some more negative feedbacks on MyBuilder , everyone is making mistakes ??? anyway..

    Thanks!

    P.S. Make sure that next time you will contact the insurance company for claim and wait for them to inspect any errors !
    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    part of the message from Mrs Yvonne Rex :

    "I am requesting compensation for the expense of correcting your work, for the added inconvenience of having the work done and the inconvenience of using a bathroom that did not work properly after completion. Please note my claim does not include the new shower unit.

    Many thanks,

    Yvonne Rex"

  • New bathroom fitting

    Robert & Co are trustworthy and hard working. Robert drove over immediately to assess the project and priced it up the following day. Work began within 2 days, 7 days a week until the job was done. I would use and recommend Robert & Co again.

    The project was a bathroom fitting job and floor / wall tiling. All completed on time and on budget. Robert even drove to London to pick up our floor tiles and only charged fuel. Over all very helpful and if we have any other projects in the near future (which I am sure we would) I'll be giving Robert a call. Thanks again.

  • Refit bathroom suite

    I shortlisted Robert to re fit my old bathroom suite and do a couple of other little jobs around the house. Within a couple of hours of contacting me on Sunday he was at my house quoting me for the work. He was very punctual and knew exactly what he was talking about and he quoted me within an hour a very reasonable price. The quote was emailed to me and there was a full breakdown of costs which I thought was very professional. I agreed to the quote and to my delight he said he could start the next day. One of his colleagues did the work and he started at 8am and worked tirelessly through the day to finish the job as he wanted to get it done in one day which suited me. He didn't even stop for a break and finished at 11pm at night! The work he has done is to an exceptional standard and I can't thank Robert and his colleague enough. Robert is also coming back on Saturday to do some decorating as well and I'm sure this will be to the same standard. Overall I'm very happy with the work so far and would recommend him to anyone.

  • Painting internal semi detached

  • Painting 4 rooms + stairway

    Robert & Co have just finished redecorating our house and we are delighted with the result.
    Robert e-mailed us the quote only a few hours after he had been round to look at what needed doing, and we agreed a start date for a couple of weeks later.
    Robert and his dad are punctual, reliable and very hard-working, and I would be happy to use them again in the future.
    Highly recommended!

  • Partial Bathroom Re-Fitting

    We were really pleased with the work Robert did for us. He replaced our sink and toilet, re-tiled part of the wall and replaced the bathroom floor. Our bathroom is really small so can't have been the easiest to work in but Robert did an excellent job - everything is as we wanted it and the finish is great. We were particularly impressed with how hard Robert & his colleague worked. They stayed late to get the job done and didn't rush anything - they put in the extra time and effort to make sure everything was done properly. Robert was very professional and easy to deal with. We'll definitely be hiring him again.

  • Painting & decorating / electrics/ plumbing /handyman

    Very happy with Robert and his dad, fast workers, good job done painting several ceilings and fitting oven hob and numerous light fittings, they stayed late in order to complete the job that day !
    Would recommend them !!

  • Painting stairway + 2 rooms - to start 5th/6th May!

    Great work, brilliant job, very professional and reliable

  • Paint lounge, hall and landing

    Robert and his father did an excellent job painting my lounge and various other walls and ceilings. As others have said, they arrived when they said they would and worked until the job was done - including tidying up after themselves!

  • Paint and decorate hall and lounge

    Robert and his father were extremely punctual and hard working. They always came on the day they said they would and worked throughout the day - no tea breaks! They completed the job to a good standard given the state of the walls which was quite poor in places. In a couple of places the finishing was a little careless due to the speed at which they worked. Laminate floor was good. Make sure that Robert knows exactly what you want done there were a couple of bits that we thought were happening that nearly didn't. Overall a good job given the poor state of the walls and ceilings.

  • Hall stairs and landing and living room painter needed

    Robert and his father painted the majority of our house over 5 days and they have done a fantastic job. They were on time every morning worked continuously throughout the day and even done an extra job. Will definitely be hiring Robert again and would happily recommend him to anyone!

  • Wallpapering

    Accepted the job very short notice and wallpapered to a very high standard.

  • Lay hardwood floor

    Very quick response to advert, quotation done very quickly. Arrived at 8am and worked through the day without a break to 7.20pm. Incredibly hard worker. Happy with all work done. Even did a couple of extra jobs on the day for no charge. Would recommend to anyone. Very reasonable prices.

  • Internal decorating

    Helpful, noting is too much trouble.

  • laminate flooring

    Robert and his father did an amazing job of my living room floor. He turned up exactly on time and was happy to do any extra jobs I needed doing. He was polite and courteous and I will be happy to hire him again

  • Painting, wallpapering, laying wooden floors, etc

    Robert and his father came to redecorate our new home before we move in. They painted 4 rooms, entrance hall, stairs, landing, bannister and lounge ceiling; wallpapered a feature wall and laid wooden floors in three rooms. His quality of work is to such a high standard and everything was finished off beautifully. Over and above that he was so helpful receiving deliveries for me, giving colour advice for my son's room (which now looks awesome) and doing a number of extra jobs. I highly recommend Robert and will definitely ask him to do any work I need done in the future. A genuinely nice person who works very hard and does fantastic, professional work. Thanks!

  • Painting walls & woodwork 3 (maybe 4 rooms)

    Robert & Co did an outstanding job of decorating my mum's new sheltered flat at a very reasonable price. They were professional, punctual, worked extremely hard and finished on time. The standard of work was excellent, and nothing was too much trouble. Robert even offered to put up new curtain poles and re-seal around the kithen worktop at no extra charge. I recommend them 100% and will definitely use their services again.

  • Painting 3 x rooms and hall and stairs

    Robert came out to quote the job the same day I posted it and was able to start the followng day. He was clean and tidy and worked at times that suited us. He and his Dad worked from 7am-5pm and competed the job in under 5 days. I woud recommend Robert and would use him again. The quote was very reasonable and we are happy with the finish.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Robert painted my hallway, stairs and landing. The job took just about 5 days. He worked cleanly, put down dust sheets everywhere and there was no issues with the quality of his work. I will get him back when I need more decorating doing.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Outside painting - stone walls, window surrounds, pipework etc. Robert provided detailed quotations describing fully the costs and materials to be used. Completed the job quickly and efficiently and to a high standard. Always turned up when he said he would, always polite and cheerful. We were very pleased with all aspects of the work carried out and with his attitude and professionalism.
