Two porcelain tiled patios Landscaping
Joe and his team laid two porcelain patios for us, one a replacement for an existing one, and the other a smaller new one, complete with brick walls to deal with sloping ground. They have done a great job. Very good workmanship, good communication, and they dealt with one or two issues very quickly. It would be fair to describe the site as fiddly - access was poor, lots of cuts and awkward levels, but Joe and his team dealt with all this very well. A particular shout out to Dave and Clint who did most of the work. I will happily recommend Joe and his team to my friends.

They started on the Monday and finished on the Friday, from the very beginning Joe was professional, friendly and honest! A quote was given with no hidden costs.

New block paving Landscaping
Superb service! Professional, open and honest. The job entailed putting in SBP into our side access with new drainage. Joe did a great job with this and was also able to keep the job tidy all the way throughout; on both our property and our neighbours. Price we agreed at the start was honoured. We will have no hesitation using Joe again and would recommend him to our friends.

Landscaping - Porcelain tiling/indian sandstone Landscaping
Joe and his team have literally rescued me from 2 extremely bad experiences with cowboy builders who botched up my garden, from the moment he came he expediated a quote to me which was very reasonable considering the amount of work required, he was true to his word and the quality of material he used was prestige, added in so many freebies such as shingle/soil and even took time to scrub my patio doors for dirt and cement the previous builders had made, he scrubbed my bricks with acid, cleaned my drains which were covered in cement, he even came back to meet with my family to sign a contract
On the work front, from start to finish joe kept me in the loop on any changes or small snags, the level of workmanship has completely exceeded my expectations, the team (Dave & Clint) just didnt stop working all day, and i found myself wandering into the garden more and more getting excited to see the final project, they were extremely tidy and for the majority of the time I didnt even know they were working, they really took care with the material i had purchased and i didnt have a single wastage.
They worked extremely long hours and even sundays to finish my garden as they were so sympathetic with the stress i had been through. Genuine tradesmen are so hard to come by and Joe and his team are truly lovely kind hearted guys
I can now finally enjoy my garden amid all the previous stress, you will not regret hiring joe he is a true professional.
Thank you Joe, Dave & Clint

Rear Garden Landscaping Landscaping
Joe & his team were nothing short of professional. I have had a large amount of renovations done & often you can lock horn with builders but Joe, Dave & Clint were nothing but a pleasure to have on board.
The quote was received quickly & reasonable. Joe visited numerous times before we started work to go through all the stages & designs. During the job we made a huge change to our design & the plan was changed with zero hassle & completed to a very high standard.
We have had artificial grass installed with a new porcelain patio and cladded our old retaining walls and a very modern and sleek design. The team paid great attention to detail as they knew this was important to me & if the smallest item was not perfect they changed it even without me knowing as they knew the vision we were trying to accomplish. They honestly treated this job as if it were their own property!
The team arrived promptly every day, put in a full days shift & made sure every night we were happy with the days progress before they left.
I'm very thankful to have now found a landscaper that I can rely on for all future jobs & we have already booked Joe & his team for additional work.
The kids absolutely love their new garden, my partner & I are over the moon with the outcome & this is all down to the passion Joe, Dave & Clint showed whilst doing the job.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this company to anyone! Great company, with great people with great work ethic.

Garden & Landscaping Landscaping
They did the astroturf job last year. Within a few months weeds starting coming and by summer my front yard had quite a few of them. I was promised by them that they will come and fix it but no one came. Lots of promises of 'this shouldn't have happened and we will fix it' but 6 weeks of waiting and no one has come to investigate what's wrong and fix it. I cleared out the weeds myself but they have come back. Very disappointed and highly unreliable.

New Deck and Patio Intalled Landscaping
The quote given was very reasonable and comprehensive, they arrived on the agreed date and started within minutes. The team put in full days and didn’t seem to take breaks, they just kept working. Overall they’ve done a fantastic job within the timescale and price quoted. We’re very happy customers and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Joe, David and Clint to anyone. They even helped placing our heavy pots and platters back onto the deck and patio once they’d completed and were ready to head home. At this very difficult time when the country is in lockdown it’s good to know that there are people and trades who will go the extra mile to help and not abuse the situation.
Thank you Joe and James, your blokes were brilliant.

New Patio Landscaping
I was very happy with the service I recieved, from Joe and his team. Following my posting of the job to have a new patio laid, Joe was in contact with me to book an initial visit, to advise and carry out measurements. He took on board all I requested and came back to me with a competitive price. Upon confirming, Joe began the work on the day stated. The team he had come in were fantastic. They worked hard all the way through the job and were very approachable. The overall look and standard of the work completed were above my expectation. Joe was always keeping me updated throughout the work days. He even came back in to put another level on the sleepers, the next day, when I asked, after job completion. The hardest thing can be finding a company that you can trust and rely on, to complete the project you have. I most certainly did in this this instance and will certainly look at using Joe and his team for future projects, as well as passing his details on to friends and family. Thanks again Joe. One happy customer.

Remove hedge & lay new patio Landscaping
Joe and his team did an excellent job of removing an old beech hedge and laying a new patio in its place, and seamlessly joining it into the existing patio. He also thoroughly jet-washed the old patio and re-pointed it so it looked as good as new, and enabled him to match the stone with the new patio. He also fitted a new fence along the length of the garden, replacing a decrepit old fence.
Joe worked really hard, and the finished job was excellent, and looked as good as we could have hoped it would. When he encountered a snag along the way (the beech hedge had a tree stump that was way bigger and deeper than we were expecting) he dealt with it well, and meant that the job finished on time.
The work was done to a very high standard, and his experience really helped with the final result.The site was tidied, and all waste material was removed. He was helpful and sensitive to our neighbours throughout the project.
I have no hesitation at all in recommending Joe for similar projects.

Excellent work on transforming my small patio into a beautiful space by Joe and his team. Quality of work was excellent and they managed to get all the work of laying a new surface for artificial grass, painting all the fences and garden walls and installing a new gate within 2 days. Not the cheapest but competitively priced, so am really hoping I have got my money well spent to enjoy the summers for the next few years.

Joe and his team were selected from 3 other quotes and was hired because of his previous feedback and also Joes professionalism and friendliness when calling and quoting for the job. Although he was not the cheapest I felt he would do the best job and he itemised all the work prior to agreeing the work so no added extras or surprises as the job progressed. Punctuality was unfaulted from the quote to doing the actual job and Joe and his team done a great job above and beyond our expectations within the time scale they stated. Would have no hesitation in recommending Joe and would state that his work is first class with the use of top class materials. A true Profesional tradesman 10/10

Joe and the team did a great job, turning our unkempt garden into a really nice usable area. We had some conversations about budget and possibilities and as I had an unknown weak fence and some drainage problems that proved to be more challenging than expected. He kept us involved every step of the way and did the job for the agreed cost (a bit more for the fence but agreed in advance) They did a great job with the drainage and were really flexible and considerate at every step, getting the right people to do each part of the job. It seemed to begin a little slowly, but that was just part of the preparation, they finished on time as expected. We would highly recommend Joe and team and do plan to have them back to do some more work for us. He has been in touch since completing the job, to check up that we were happy.

We found it very easy to discuss the job and what options we had with Joe without feeling pressured into going with any of his suggestions.
Joe and his team removed a tier of our garden, turfed the space that was left, put in a 4m x 4m concrete base, put in a new fence and 2 new gates.
He said that his team would manage to complete the work within 5 days, and managed to deliver in 4.
Our garden now looks transformed and we would recommend Joe to other customers who need their garden landscaped.
Even after they finished the work, Joe has been helpful and has lent us his hose for us to water the new turf, until the hose we have ordered arrives.

Front driveway 8x8meters And back patio Driveways (Paved & Loose Surface)
It is always difficult finding a reliable builder. After looking on my builder I came across St. Albans & Herts Property Maintenance and after looking at there feedback and reviews. I decide to go with them , we arrange appointment. Joe came around and I found him to be friendly and polite. Joe knew exactly want was required to overcome any problems (levels of back patio) Joe listen to want we wanted and want design we had in mind. Joe very kindly gave me some address of jobs he had done in the area. We visited some address and saw a drive and patio how we envisaged ours would look like. And after speaking to some very happy customer we decide to go ahead with the drive and patio done at the same time. When choosing colours and patterns it is not easy off a catalogue. So seeing the jobs in person was a great help. Joe and his team work very hard and long hours in all types of weather. The works was done to a very high standard and was done quickly and efficiently and on time. The driveway (paving) and back patio (Indian sandstone slabs) look awesome. I would highly recommend St. Albans & Herts Property Maintenance.It is east to see why they have 100 % feedback. First class true professionals.

Drive way Driveways (Paved & Loose Surface)
-Joe was quick to respond to job posted on mybuilder.com.
-I had few quotes from other builders and Joe was happy to match. We were taken to various sites to see different aspects of work.
-Job commenced immdly next day and through out the period Joe was helpful with suggestions, ideas, and providing space for us to express our needs.
-All team members onsite were soft spoken and hard working.
-The team highlighted problem of uneven surface after dig that eventually increased my cost by 30%. I am little disappointed by this - as uneven surface was not something unknown and Joe could have highlighted this upfront while negotiating the cost. After all they have been doing this type of work for 15+ years?
-During the initial discussion I was told that a soak-away is mandatory since the slope is towards house; however I later found that no soak-away dig-up were carried out. When highlighted, after some resistance Joe agreed to soak-away.
-I caught a worker peeing on fence. Honestly, there was no need to do that, as we never said not to use toilets!!
Good team, hardworking, supportive and also helped in concluding what we want. Definitely needs to be much better in cost estimation and sticking to what was committed /agreed while winning the job.
Would I hire them again?
Yes, as the overall outcome was good. However, I will certainly be very cautious about cost and ensure it’s actually done without ‘pissing’ around.

I hired S&H PM to carry out a major roof repair. The felt underlay had holes in it and was leaking during rain.
Joe visited to have a look at the problem and recommended that 5-6 rows of roof tiles would need to be lifted to allow the felt to be replaced with a modern breathable underlay. He quickly identified how this could be done given the specific design of the roof, and was also happy to accommodate an additional request to replace/repair the soffit/fascia/guttering at the same time. He explained how he would work, including taking photos during the work and would let me know if any problems arose that would require additional work.
Joe provided an initial written quote by email and then when I decided to hire him he visited again and provided a fully itemised written quote that covered all the tasks that he would undertake. He also provided an estimated start date - just over a week later. He also gave me the details of other roofing jobs he was currently doing in the area so that I could take a look if I wanted to.
Joe and his colleagues started work when promised, and completed the task in one day. The scaffolding was removed promptly and was up for a total of only 5 days. The quality of the work was very good and they were neat, tidy and polite on site. Joe returned afterwards to explain the work he'd done (showing me photos) and to provide the invoice.
I would definitely recommend S&H PM for roofing work, and I will be happy to hire them again in the future.

Soffit, fascias, bargeboard & guttering replacement Roofing (Pitched)
The decision to use St. Albans & Herts Property & Maintenance for the roofing work at my house was based on the excellent feedback I’d read and the knowledge & professionalism shown by Joe Stanley when he visited. I could not be more delighted with the finished work!
Joe and his team worked during extremely hot weather conditions with efficiency and good humour, solving problems such as a dormant bird’s nest and live wasps’ nest. They arrived on time (early in fact) and finished the job within 3 days, all rubbish removed and areas swept and tidied. Their work was of a very high standard; I’m 100% satisfied and would recommend to anyone.

Roof repairs Roofing (Pitched)
From start to finish Joe provided excellent customer service. He was punctual for all arranged appointments and, if there was any hold up, kept us fully informed.
The original job quoted for was to provide birdguard to stop birds and squirrels getting into the loft. We were aware there would be other work required and as the job progressed Joe gave us advice, information and further quotes. At no time did he make us feel pressured into having any extra work done beyond the original quote and the decision was ours alone. Work done included new drip felt, fascia boards, soffit boards, guttering and down pipes (plus waterbut) birdguard and new dry verge gables.
Joe, Clint & Mark worked extremely hard and were always very polite and friendly. Every day they cleaned, tidied and removed the rubbish. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were happy to go that extra mile.
The standard of their workmanship is excellent and we cannot fault anything. We are really pleased with the work they have done.
They left the house and garden looking immaculate.
We would definitely use them again and would not hesitate to recommend them to others.

Widen driveway and replace wall/fencing Landscaping
I would usually try and find a tradesman through personal recommendation, however despite several attempts I was unable to find one who returned my calls or took the time to provide me a quote after calling round to look at the job.
It was at this point I decided to post the job on mybuilder.com and I'm incredibly glad that I did. Joe contacted me quickly, came round to take a look at the job and provided me with a detailed and reasonable quote within a couple of days.
He was then able to start the following week - testament to his ability to source great quality materials (Marshalls) very quickly.
Joe and James were on site early on the first day with a team of 6 and completely cleared the site on day one. They worked quickly, cleanly and effectively and were polite to my neighbours. The job was completed fast but to a great standard; James and Joe are clearly very experienced and made some great suggestions to improve the design of the project.
Throughout the 2 weeks it took to complete the job, I was kept up to date and consulted if at any point the team had questions. Joe always called me exactly when he said he would which was great.
I must admit I was slightly nervous when I first decided to employ someone through mybuilder who hadn't been personally recommended to me, but I cannot thank Joe, James and the team enough for the job they've done and have no hesitation in fully recommending them. It's easy to see why they have a 100% positive record.

Move shed, remove greenhouse & replace patio Landscaping
Joe, James & the team have transformed my back garden. I originally hired them to remove an old greenhouse plus concrete base, dismantle my shed and replace the old patio, to replace and extend in Indian Sandstone. They did a fantastic job, so much so, I asked them to install sleepers around the garden to create a contemporary border to complement the stunning new look patio.
The team worked tirelessly, and completed everything within three days - this could easily have been a five day job for most companies but they put the hours in each day. The price was fair, communication was first class, and the quality of workmanship was of a very high standard.
I can't thank the guys enough, and whole-heartedly recommend them.

Jo then arranged everything, each tradesman arrived and carried out their part of the project to my specification. There was a team on hand to ensure supplies were delivered and all rubbish quickly taken away. During each stage of the project I was consulted to ensure I was happy.

Replace loose slates on old property Roofing (Pitched)
Joe and his team replaced two sections of a roof on our old property.
The job included neat scaffolding, with the roof stripped and cleared tidily. New breathable felt, batons and Spanish slate supplied and fitted along with new lead where required. All rubbish taken away and ridge and edges cemented.
Joe was quick to respond and visit following our request on MyBuilder. He clearly explained what he proposed to do, and why, and gave a fair quote.
His team arrived promptly on the agreed day with all materials arriving in good time for the work to be done. His friendly team made good progress despite freezing cold, wind and rain but took care to work safely. They worked by torchlight to ensure the roof was protected overnight and went above and beyond by repairing some fencing they spotted had been damaged by the wind. I wonder if he may have even organised the sunshine on the final day to complete the cement work! Everything was left tidy at the end of each working day and he provided us with photos of the work in progress and of the completed job.
Payment was on completion and the work comes with a 10 year guarantee.
We have no hesitation in recommending him to others and have asked him to quote on another job already.

One of the reasons we gave the job to Joe - along with his competitive quote - was the positive feedback he'd received here. And I have to say, I can only add to the praise that's been heaped upon him... Joe, John and their team of workmen laboured their muddy socks off the entire time they were here. Often turning up at 7.00 am and not leaving until 6.00 pm. Hugely impressive. They've completely redone our patio, rebuilding a brick wall (3,000 bricks worth) filling in the old steps down to the garden, building a new set somewhere more convenient and repaving some of the garden area. It all looks fantastic. And they stripped our ancient front drive and laid a new one. We're delighted with the work and are very happy to add our endorsement to everyone else's. We'd definitely use them again.

Joe, John and their team have just completely renovating my neglected patio. This was a large area originally laid with very heavy York stone with some slabs measuring 100 millimetres. Joe and his team did a fantastic job and renovated the whole patio in less than a week. All the very heavy slabs were lifted, pressure washed and stored in piles of similar dimensions ready for relaying. The ground beneath the old slabs was excavated and provided with an appropriate sub base. The slabs were then relayed with an improved random pattern. in addition the project included the renovation of the garden pond. This was excavated further to give additional depth and decorative circular stones and feature edging provided. the team came early in the morning and on most days did not leave until quite late. They also worked on Saturday and Sunday to complete the job without delay. Everything was left clean and tidy on completion of the job. the overall experience was excellent and I can highly recommend St Albans Herts property maintenance for this type of specialist garden patio renovation and associated garden landscaping.

They did the job well within the timescale. They went over budget but only because I changed my mind about moving a tree which I originally wanted retained. They immediately provided a revised quote which was reasonable.
Most of all I (and my neighbours) were very impressed with the quality. The attention to detail was first class and turned a straightforward job into something that really enhances the quality of my house and garden. The workmen Joe uses were experts in their task, from the digger to the tree removal guy to the paver. I also appreciated the way they constantly clearly communicated with me during the project.

Joe and his team dug out and installed block paving driveway, replaced all fencing and laid new patio and blocks on the front and rear gardens. I would not hesitate to recommend Joe and his team. They were friendly, quick to respond and gave a good price. I ll be asking them to quote on any work I need doing moving forwards. Matt st albans.

flat roofing and guttering Roofing (Flat)
A very efficient and hard working team took care of much renovations to the outside of the house. Joe's men worked very fast and efficiently- again powered by tea and buiscuits! Completely satisfied with not only the results but the politeness and courtesy of all the men. Thanks guys.

Patio steps to garden +Front Garden paved over Landscaping
After asking several other builders for quotes and their opinons on the work,it was a very easy decision to make.
1/ they were realistic,but not to expensive.
2/they were happy to give written quotes and guarantees.
3/they were happy to give the names and addresses of past clients and to view the work.
4/ they did not want any money"up front" unlike other builders.
5/ they arrived early, polite, not to noisy,finished late and cleaned up afterwards.
6/ as it was dark when they finished,they came back the next day,to make sure I was happy with the job.
As I have quite a lot of other work to be done,I will definatly be calling them agian.

Replace Guttering and Barge Board Roofing (Pitched)
Job completed on schedule and for the agreed price. All rubbish cleared away and minimal disruption while work was carried out. Waiting on rain before I could comment on effectiveness of replacement guttering, but looks good to my untrained eye and they took the time to test joints with water to ensure sealing and run off should be good.

Replacement slate roof Roofing (Pitched)
Joe was very easily contactable at all times before and after the jobs completion. He was friendly, knowledgable and very flexible in terms of dates, managed to replace the whole roof (slate tiles, new batons and breathable felt - front and back, re-pointing where required) in under a week. Pricing was also very competitive, with the 10 year gurantee that his company offers as a huge selling point.
All in all, I would recommend Joe highly, and will be asking him first to quote for any maintanence work in the future.

homeowner - 19th Nov, 2012 Waiting for feedback
Joe and his team replaced my fences in my garden. They did a fantastic job, arriving early and working hard to ensure that my job(s) were finished on time, working well even after it became dark.
It is obvious the whole group feel very passionately about the work they do, they kept me informed at all times of any issues that could possibly arise and also explained reasons why they needed to put fences a certain way. They were very easy to talk to and explained everything clearly and concisely.
I was particularly pleased that they could give me a reasonable quote for the job straight away and not beat around the bush like some builders or ask for more money before completing the job.
Overall the wife and I are extremely happy with the quality of the work and would have no hesitation in recommending this company or using them again.

Fencing for a small garden Fencing
Just like a SWAT team (Special Weapons and Tactics team), St Albans & Herts Maintenance took on the replacement of my garden fencing and won!
When the job was due to start, they arrived on time, cleared away the old fencing quickly, installed the new and ensured that they tidied up. Fuelled by tea (strong with 2 sugars), the guys did a great job.
If you need a reliable team, you need look no further.

Re-do gutter -possibly more Roofing (Pitched)
When we bought our new house there was a long list of things to do. I posted only one item on the site and after reading feedback invited Jo to quote. And very happy I am too. Not only did Jo come round very quickly , he broke down the quote so we knew exactly what was what. He also discussed solutions and options and was always upfront about costs. I couldn't get over how hard he and his team worked, the amount they achieved in such a short time has meant we have been able to move in without any delay. Their work ethic was fantastic. Quality too is high as Jo seems to employ a range of skilled tradesmen which was so reassuring to hear people recount their carpentry training it gave me great faith that the right people were doing the right thing. Best of all Jo was totally open and upfront, we agreed a price and he stuck to it. He and his team really were a joy to work with, couldn't recomend them more.

Rear garden boundary wall - removal and rebuild Bricklaying
Hired to rescue a dilapidated boundary wall, with 3 separate parties involved. Joe and his team were flexible from the start, working with all three parties to offer different solutions at various very competitive pricing levels. Professional from start to finish, the job was completed quickly, and most importantly to a high standard. Would highly recommend.

Entire Drive way needs replacing Driveways (Paved & Loose Surface)
Joe came to see me to explain the work that they will do on my drive way, the different stages involved, materials utilised and the timescales involved. Once discussed and I was satisfied we agreed on a price (which was reasonable) and confirmed a start date. Joe arrived to start the work on Monday morning with a strong (at least 6 people) team that literally dug up my drive within one day, and I was impressed with the efficiency of their work. On day 2 they laid the foundations, fixed the drains and compacted the surface so it was primed for the block paving. The paving was then laid (Marshall Bricks) and by day 3 the drive was complete and looked fantastic. Joe has a large team meaning they can get the work done quickly, but not at the cost of quality which was important to me as I wanted my drive way done to a high standard, within a reasonable time frame and one that would last for numerous years. What I was particularly pleased about as well was that Joe and his team, on a daily basis, cleared all the rubbish away from the property, so there was no SKIP left behind etc but everything cleared before they left the property. I found Joe to be an approachable and accommodating individual. He is respectful and polite and clearly has numerous years of experience doing this kind of work. Overall I am happy with the drive way I now have and the quality of the work done. My thanks to Joe, and I will be using him again in the near future.

Small Garden needs to be cleared Landscaping
Joe is a good guy. When we arranged an initial viewing, he showed up on time and gave a reasonable quote. When I finally decided to hire him, he went out of his way to find the time to get the job done (effectively the job was completed with 24 hours of my call).
Joe and his team showed up on time for the job. They were professional, considerate and attentive to my requests.

Garden wall re-build and drainpipe replacement. Bricklaying
Joe and his team were professional and effective despite what we thought was a small job turning into something much bigger. Dave and Alex in particular stayed with the job throughout to see it done as quickly as possible. The final result looks good and should last a good long time. I would request quotations from Joe for any further work I may have in future.

Resize Driveway Wall Bricklaying
John and his team arrived promptly, and got to work straight away. When they told me it would take around 3 hours, I didn't really believe them.. How wrong I was, no less than 4 men got straight to it, whipped down my old wall, replaced the foundations with new driveway bricks, and build new column and column toppers and finished dead on the 3 hours promised..
Friendly, professional team that leave no stone unturned. Very impressed and would recommend to anyone..
Thanks again guys..

Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder Roofing (Pitched)
Joe Stanley came round to give me a quote for some roofing work and I found the quote to be very reasonable. The work was promptly completed on the day in question to a very high standard and the work men and Joe Stanley were very polite and well mannered.
After the work was completed they left my property very nicely cleaned. I would employ St Albans and Herts property maintenance again.
