The House Doctor

  • Removing earth from flowerbed on first floor terrace

    Following a discussion about this job, two of Leon's team - Mark and Jamie - came to do the work. I couldn't recommend them highly enough. They arrived on time, did exactly what they said they would do - and more. When they'd finished (which involved carrying bags of earth and rubble through a flat with white carpets ...) they also hoovered, swept and retouched without being asked. They were both extremely personable and highly professional. Great job. Many thanks!

  • Re furnish a closet

    Leon and his team provided a swift and well thought out answer to my storage needs. The work was carried out in a timely manner, cleanly and efficiently.
    As well as building a bespoke built in wardrobe Leon replaced and mended items which would have been more costly and time consuming had I needed to call on other trades. I think the name House Doctor is perfect for his enterprise. I’ll certainly be contacting him again.

  • Wooden frame on fireplace surround

  • New garden wall + repointing

  • Drilling holes and laying cable down

    I was thoroughly impressed with Leon from the get go. He is so approachable and easy to talk to. From the initial meeting where he helped me by sharing his wealth of knowledge, to the day he arrived to do the work. The work was done to a meticulously high standard and completed on time and I am highly satisfied with it. Definitely someone I will be calling on again and raving about to family and friends alike. Thanks!

  • Re sealing bath tub and bedroom window

    Work carried out was to a high standard, both Leon and his son where both polite and friendly.

  • Scan for wires and install wall-mounting furniture

    Leon came with his son straight away for a site visit and sent a quote same night, started the job with short notice, very thorough and gave good advice. Will invite back for more work.

  • Removal of a built in cupboard

    Leon was absolutely fantastic and a pleasure to have around. His work is very good and both Leon and his son work tirelessly to minimise mess which was quite considerable with the job he was doing!

    I would not hesitate to recommend him, and in fact he has been back and already done another job for us. My only issue was I had to go to work most days they were here so couldn't get to chat to Leon more.

  • box in exterior cables outside garage

    Leon and his partner are neat and tidy, unobtrusive and efficient. My work was completed in one day and then bits and bobs that arose during the project they returned to complete this week.

    The site was left tidy after work had been finished and they worked diligently.

    I would definitely recommend and they are coming back to do some more work too on our drains (smell).

  • Hanging heavy wall mirror

    Leon did a great job hanging a very heavy mirror plus he undertook several other jobs around my home. He's not the cheapest but he's very skilled and worth the extra money. Definitely recommend.

  • Repair squeaky floorboards - possibly a joist problem

    Seemed knowledgeable, helpful and professional. Highly recommended.

  • brick wall long

  • chimney stack

    Leon Winter did a good job of rebuilding a corner of my chimney stack that had become unsafe. He came to view the work at short notice and successfully completed the work the next day. His Pointing is very good. The result is that the chimney stack is now stronger than ever. Leon was communicative, friendly and reliable through out the whole process. I can recommend him.

  • Camden repointing

    This was our first experience of using MyBuilder and we really could not have been more impressed.

    Last week we needed some repointing done urgently. We weren't sure about using MyBuilder but we were fairly desperate and we had our doubts that the one builder who had quoted for the work knew what he was doing.

    Leon was a breath of fresh air. The day after we posted our advertisement he came to our house to see the problem and provided a very reasonable quote. He correctly identified the site of the water ingress (which noone else had done) and remedied the problem within 48 hours at a very reasonable cost. He obviously knew his stuff and was very reassuring. His brickwork is first class. He left everything immaculately tidy and fixed.

    This evening my husband and I have been discussing all the other projects we might ask Leon to help with. I really can't recommend him highly enough - if you have the chance, snap him up!

  • Repointing garden wall

    I contacted Leon to repoint my garden wall. He kept me informed of when he was coming to estimate the job and then he made an appointment to do the work at short notice. He was very friendly and knowledgeable and I would definitely use him again for repair work.

  • Replace garage door with brick wall + window

    Leon worked hard and always arrived on time. The quote was reasonable and the quality of work was excellent. He even did some bits and pieces that I hadn't asked for at no extra cost, which improved the final design. Would definitely use again and happy to provide a references.

  • Carpenter

    My wife and and I had two very nice experiences recently.The first was finding 'My Builder' on the Internet.The next was being put in touch with 'The House Docter' Leon Winter.He came to see us and straight away agreed to do the job, which involved putting a roof over a walkway connecting the conservatory to the garage. We straight away had rapport with Leon and agreed a price. Having previously viewed his reviews and photographs of work done.It was a pleasure to observe Leon through the various stages of the project.There was attention to detail all the way.We were so impressed with his work that he did another pointing job for us which he indicated required attention. He has also agreed some other work shortly.Would highly recommend Leon and am completely satisfied.

  • Cat flap installation to exterior wall

    Leon was incredibly helpful fitting this job in at short notice. He did the work quickly and professionally and I was impressed how tidy he was when knocking out the wall. He provided advice for a couple of other jobs we have for the future and we'll use him again for these.

  • reinstate joists

    Leon really came to my rescue last week. My conservatory floor was in a terrible state and I had another company in to lay a new one. But they discovered that the joists would not support a new floor and so could not proceed. So I was desperate to get this sorted out and went on to MyBuilder. I'm really glad that I did as Leon was on site within a couple of hours. His investigation quickly uncovered several genuine issues that really needed to be addressed before a new floor is laid. Despite having his own personal building project scheduled that week he understood my predicament and agreed to start the work the very next day. And by the end of the first day it was clear that Leon is a highly skilled craftsman. I couldn't believe what he managed to achieve in just one day and by the last day (day 4) I couldn't have been any happier with the results. Simply, his work was life-changing (not only are we now in a position to have the floor laid, we can be reassured that all the 'nasties' that had been concealed under the original floor (inadequate pipework, debris, holes, open drains, damp, etc.) have been properly taken care of. As Leon himself says, he's not the cheapest out there, but when you consider the standard of his work he is actually very good value. And he's also a very nice person to deal with and very, very tidy. I can confidently recommend Leon's work. Thank you again Leon !!

  • Tile a 3sqm bathroom floor with mosaic tiles

  • repair leak in flat terrace

    Leon is a superb builder. He came and fixed the problem with no hassle and to the specification quoted. No hidden surprises and a pleasure to work with!

  • Utility room in bungalow

    Excellent. Professional, reliable and hardworking.

  • laminate flooring installation and measurement

    Excellent work, done quickly, skillfully, and in good humour. Thank you. Judy Hough

  • greehouse repair

    Leon made a beautiful job of restoring/rebuilding a wooden Victorian greenhouse that everyone else thought beyond repair.( We thought it worth saving because of its association with the writer Thomas Hardy, who lived there.) Leon has high standards and the skills to match: this job called for intricate carpentry & wood restoration, leadwork, glazing, brick and stone work, decorating and electrics. It also needed imagination and good judgment. Leon was punctilious about security and tidiness, kept us informed on costs, and took pride in doing a good job. Highly recommended.

  • Removing kitchen island

    Leon did an amazing job in my kitchen. He removed an island from the middle of the floor and fixed the wooden flooring so that you would never know it was ever there. This was great as wedidn't think that was possible. He also hung some kitchen cupboards for us which looked perfect and helped us out with a few other bits and bobs like mounting out tv to the wall. Leon was always early, upfron about costs and did a really great job. I will definitely be calling Leon again when I next need a builder. Finally Leon was a real pleasure to have around the flat. Very nice, friendly and clean (even tidying up sections of my flat which were a mess!). All in all Leon is great and I would highly reccommend him.

  • looking to create entrance into roof void from bedroom

    leon plans well in stages that are very useful for work required, gives accurate assessments of work to be done - and delivers what he promises-

  • barbecue

    Very good. Arrived on time. Did what he said he would. Flexible. Conscientious.

  • External gate

    Leon did an excellent job – he turned up on time, provided a quote for me to consider and then returned on the agreed date to carry out the work. His work was of a very high standard and was extremely tidy, returning the next day to add an extra coat of paint to the gate. It is clear Leon takes pride in his work and was very pleasant to deal with and I will not hesitate to use him in the future.

  • Replace rotting floor, replace back door and fit locks

    We have been very happy with Leon's work. Everything we asked for was done to a very high standard. We actually extended the scope of this work as Leon advised us on some extra steps that would prevent the dampness issue from reoccurring and generally make the whole area more secure and usable. Leon was happy to advise us and give us options for how things could be improved. Everything was left very clean and tidy. We have already hired Leon to do some additional work for us as we were so pleased with his work.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Leon undertook a complete and major refurbishment of my roof. He is extremely thorough, takes pride in his work and is a real, craftsman. He takes before and after photos which I found really helpful as I could see what he was going to do and he explained everything in great detail as I know nothing about roofing work whatsoever. He gave a very accurate quote with a margin for possible extras in case he uncovered anything terrible. There were no surprises and he carried out the work efficiently over the time he said he would. He even kept my son busy over the half term with some labouring work and my son now says that he has so much respect for roofers - he never realised what a specialised job it was. I found it quite safe for him to help Leon. I am about to get him to do work in the garden. He is very honest, very reliable and you do get a job at the end of it. He also repointed quite a lot of two exterior walls and a couple of neighbours commented on the quality. I would and have recommended him.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    He has done lots of work for us over they years (refurbishment of my office, new roof on the house, drainage) the most recent job was a bathroom fit. He did the tiling, replacement of units, decorating etc. He also did the whole outside of the house - painting, guttering and windows etc. The thing that marks Leon out from others is the quality of the work - it is the best work that anybody has ever done for me. I trust him to be in the house when I'm not there away on business. My wife is comfortable around him and he more than happy to help if anything should need fixing when I am not around.
