    Thomas and Team are great! My Mum was struggling with taps, arthritis and forgetting to turn taps off - it's a minor dementia complication, but means big energy costs. Thomas discussed with me and Mum and we got a simple solution: taps that cut off after 30 seconds...fantastic! Thomas took only 1 hour to fit all the new taps. We are very grateful, and Thomas is a very nice person.

    Tom and his team were fantastic and crucial in getting our kitchen completed. Prior to and during the works all questions were answered quickly and telephone calls, emails and text messages were responded to.

    They got the walls plastered, prepared and painted on time with electrics changed and in new places. They provided sound advice for a new floor and fitted the flooring that we purchased.

    They worked with the kitchen fitters from the kitchen company that we bought the new kitchen from to ensure that the installation went smoothly and new sink and dishwasher were plumbed in correctly.

    I had a damp problem in the bathroom of my rental property. Someone came last year and just painted over the ceiling in a quick botch job. Thankfully, tom and his team were completely the opposite. They took their time, stripped the walls completely, repainted it in a specialist paint, replaced the old extractor fans and made sure the wiring was up to date with current regulations. My tenants and I are really pleased with the job. Not only is it high quality, Tom was also prompt at responding to my work request, and at contacting me with updates and sending photos of the work on request. Would definitely recommend.

  • renovation of a bathroom, and changing shower

    Tom and his team are fantastic.
    Great people who certainly have the work ethic and are enthusiastic in getting the best possible result.
    They are unobtrusive, such that we did not feel that our home was invaded and always cleaned up after each day so that the house did not become a building site.
    Most importantly of all we now have a fantastic new bathroom which exceeds our expectations and is exactly what we wanted. There was some snagging and teething troubles which were attended to without question and very promptly.

  • Fixing kitchen sink

    Tom was extremely efficient - both in his communication as well as in the proceedings and execution of the repair I needed done. Oberlall an extremely positive experience. I would hire Tom again in a heartbeat.

    Tom was very quick to respond to our urgent needs and came around to do the job in two days. The finished job looks professional, especially when compared to the previous workman whose quality of work let us down. He is knowledgeable and friendly. He made the whole process easy and efficient. We would use him again in the future.

  • Kitchen update ASAP!

    To be honest RMPTrades saved my flat where I needed the kitchen turned around quickly.

    Tom was great to work with, prompt to get in touch and arrange a viewing of the work to be done when I listed the job, with great communication throughout - even when I changed my mind a couple of times Tom was very accommodating and patient, and was still able to complete in the short time frame requested. Also very upfront and transparent with costs, and helpful in helping me source materials at competitive rates!
    I couldn't ask for more in terms of quality and service from Tom and his son. Thomas really knows what he's talking about and goes above and beyond and takes great pride in his work, offering solutions to problems and recommendations to improve the design which work. The kitchen looks stunning, the fitting, finishing and tiling second to none, it's a shame I can't upload pictures... it's received praise from estate agents and everyone that has come to see it. I will certainly be using RPMTrades again in future, I've no need to go anywhere else for all building and renovation needs - I would highly recommend!

Many thanks.

  • Kitchen Fitting & Flooring whole flat

    Hello Tom

    Its Jason from Shrubbery Road. You did my Kitchen and bathroom last year. The tenants downstairs are still waiting for you to finish plastering and repainting their ceiling after the 4 leaks from the bathroom. I've tried calling, emailing you but to no avail. I believe you did repaint one of their rooms but you never returned the next day to fix the other one as promised. If you could pop round to them and finish of the job you promised to that would be great. Cheers

    RPMTrades's reply:

    Thank you J for reaching me on my builder I don't understand why you couldn't reach me on my numbers however I have been working in and out of the country also and I'm back in the UK please contact me as you wish so I can arrange to sort out your tenants so sorry for any inconvenience. Thomas Rpmtrades
    Ps I have sent you a text when you left your contact number

  • Reseal bath, tile floors and walls, plaster walls, fan

    Thomas was absolutely excellent. Polite, well priced and knowledgeable about the work needed and most economical solutions for what we required. Not only did he organise fair prices on materials but he also was exceptionally trustworthy in terms of having to leave our property in his hands whilst we were at work.

    He worked well into the late evening in order to get the job finished the same day, as he had guaranteed. In terms of professional integrity - excellent.

    I would absolutely not hesitate to hire RPM again and certainly any future work needed (which will be soon) Thomas will be doing.

    I met maybe 5 different tradesmen from mybuilder.com to discuss the work needed and Thomas was by far the most informed and honest of the lot.

    If you need a job doing hire him. Professional, efficient, knowledgeable and someone who will do the job properly. Bravo indeed Thomas, and thank you.

  • Painting master bedroom / entranceway and landing

    We hired Tom to restore our wood floors (upstairs and entranceway) and paint our master bedroom / hallway. Tom was responsive (e.g. made contact within an hour of us posting the job) and communicative throughout the process. The renovations were completed within our desired timeframe and quoted budget (minor adjustments due to requested changes during the job).

  • Partial bathroom refurb

    RPM are the best builders in town!

    I'm so happy with my bathroom refurb. Tom and his men have far exceeded my expectations. I would do it all over again with them and will surely ask them to do my floors in the future.

    Just one advice : book 'em quick!

  • inspect leaky radiator and loose door handles

  • small repair - outside light to be fixed to EWI

    Very happy and we would recommend Tom to others.

    Thomas responded really quickly to my posting and did a great job for a fair price. I was really pleased with the end result.

    I'd thoroughly recommed him to others.

  • Bath panels and sink

    Completed the job quivkly and efficiently, especially as we had been let down my our previous tradesman. Was reasonable with price, friendly and enthusiastic. We even got some life advice thrown in for free! Would recommend!

  • Kitchen worktop, hob and tap replacement

    I would highly recommend Thomas. He was punctual on all occasions that he visited. On viewing the job he made helpful suggestions. He did the work very quickly and to a high standard. I cannot fault him or the work he did and I definitely intend to use him again.

  • Putting roller blinds up

    Fantastic job. Every time there was a problem with the blinds, Thomas solved it. Real attention detail and I will definitely hire him again. Excellent experience all round.

  • Changing my worktop

    I have read the comment written on Thomas and there was one negative comment which I have read, as it helps me make the decision to still go ahead and use his service for: There is a difference in doing wrong & being wrong. He had given the clearest responded based on that I am delighted to have used Thomas to complete the work. My experience with Thomas is that his number will never leave my phone as I appreciate a tradesman with great energy & do great work, he gives off this feeling like we know each other for years. He's now on my next work..👍🏾

  • Bathroom Extractor

    Fast, professional, effective. When unplanned challenges came up he provided experienced solutions. At no time did I feel he didn't know what he was doing and he proved himself. Will definitely be hiring Thomas again and will not hesitate to recommend him to others.

  • Decorate small toilet

    Not a massive job, but a job well done and we are really pleased with the end result. Would definitely recommend Thomas. Friendly, helpful and reliable and his son is a plumber.

  • fitting new units in en-suite, odd jobs in en-suite

  • Fitting new toilet, retiling walls floor and bath

    I am so pleased with the amazing job Tom did refitting our bathroom.
    He went the extra mile to ensure it was finished on time and to a high standard.
    He has completely transformed our once horrible bathroom into a truly lovely place to be, the end result is great!
    I would highly recommend Tom and he will be the first person I call for any future work that needs doing in our flat.

  • Plaster a small room

    We deeply regret hiring Tom & would not recommend him to anyone.

    Tom was hired to complete 8 jobs. Circumstances out of our control occurred, affecting the works timeline, but our overall experience was negative.

    We feel Tom accumulated more work than could be reasonably completed in good time- this took its toll on the quality and progress of our job.

    We terminated our relationship with Tom following the unacceptable amount of time for work to progress; and threats to walk away if we continued requesting completion estimates.

    At the point of termination, no jobs were complete; surprising given Tom’s description of himself as an ‘award winning finisher’. Furthermore, Tom claimed he was owed for the incomplete work!

    Tom received payment (half upfront) for work he never started as well as for the work he never completed.

    We analysed Tom’s work post-termination (and took pictures as evidence) , in order to settle the finances. It became clear Tom received payment for more than he did.

    We know terminating the relationship was the right action: Tom perpetually made us feel like such an inconvenience, and was disrespectful and rude (particularly to me).

    We felt an overwhelming peace after Tom left. Completing and rectifying the mistakes in his workmanship cost us money, but it was worth it to be free of empty promises, sub-standard workmanship, inefficient time management and threats.

    RPMTrades's reply:

    Hi would like to say sometimes no matter how hard you try to please some people it's like it's never enough and although when you put such people first over established customers which are more than happy with the levale of workmanship that's been done for them and continue to use us that I believe speaks volumes and then you got some people which simply have no full understanding of wat it takes to get the end product however I'm not here to put anyone down so all I can say anyone who reeds the one negative things said buy this one person please take time and reed the feedback from our other customers and you decide wat you believe thank you all

We are very pleased, we have ended up with just what we wanted! And they helped us in finding a plumber when our boiler broke down!!

  • Boiler cupboard dismantling

  • Repair garden wall and replace garage roof

  • replaster wall and clean gutters

    Mr Defreitas really helped us out at short notice, just before new tenants moved into the flat. A number of jobs were carried out ranging from stripping back a section of "blown" lime plaster and making good to electrical repairs and replacements. All these were carried out to a high standard, on time, the flat being left clean and tidy and at a reasonable price.
    Mr Defreitus, is very likeable and conscientious, I am a craftsman myself and will use Tom again in the future and would recommend him to others.
    Gary and Sarah, Clapham.

  • Putting up four shelves and a cabinet

    Responded quickly, very friendly, punctual, very reasonably priced and would definitely use again. Thanks Tom

  • Paint

    We hired RPM to fix some water damage in our ceiling in a few different places in our flat. Tom and his team did a fantastic job from start to finish. We rent the flat out and don't live in London so dealt with Tom via phone and email. Communication was good throughout with Tom reviewing and quoting for the work promptly. The work was performed to a high standard and Tom and his team came back a week later to paint over some plaster that needed to dry. Tom happily dealt directly with our tenants too which was perfect for us.

    We’d definitely recommend RPM to anyone.

He did a great job and I am extremely happy with the result. I would definitely recommend him for any job you have!!

    Tom did a great job with filling and repainting the front bay window of the house ready for sale. Very good price and very professional. Tom even came back a few days after completion to touch up where the really heavy storm had made a mess. Would always recommend to anyone. Thanks.

  • plastering asap

    Tom is a genuinely great guy with a passion for what he does, along with the skill to do the job better than most. He was not the cheapest quote originally but went out of his way to align himself to suit my needs and budget. His attention to detail and his willingness to go so far over and above the requirements for the quoted job made it the most cost effective decision I could have made.

    As a property developer, I wouldn't hesitate to use Tom again in the future- in fact, I intend to!

  • I need a local painter

    Tom did a FANTASTIC job, really happy with him he really went the extra mile and was very quick but at the same time made sure that everything was perfect and while painting my hallway he even made extra touches to make sure the paint job was to the best standard I felt that he was really reasonable priced all I can do is shout out his praise!

Tom also shared my attention to detail with the end result, so I am very pleased about that.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Thomas did a complete refurbishment in a town house that I ended up selling for 40k more than the original surveyors price. He laid new floors, did all the painting and decorating, refurbished the loft conversion and put a shower in it. Everyone who saw it commented on what a good job he did, my mum, my sister, my friends, everybody. He really knows what he's doing, he charges a little more for it but you definitely get what you pay for. I had no problems with his knowledge or advice or anything like that, I think he's been doing it for over 20 years now, he knows his stuff. I couldn't be happier with the job he did for me.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Thomas ripped out the old shower in my en-suite and installed a new one. He also retiled the room. He did an excellent job, I've had no problems with him or his work. He told me what he was going to do and even stayed late some days to get it finished on schedule.
