Sundew Builders Limited

  • Looking to renovate a two-bed flat (708 sqf/65 sqm) in

  • Bathroom and bedroom refurb and other bits

  • Fitting new front door and understair cloakroom, odd jobs

  • Moving kitchen and other renovations

    I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Sundew Builders.
    Krzysztof and his team pulled out all the stops to try and complete my renovation in as quick a time frame as possible so we could get the property on the market. The team hold themselves to a high standard, with the estate agents commenting that the renovations have been done to a high quality.
    Apart from doing a great job, all of his team of workers I encountered were courteous, pleasant and extremely helpful.
    His communication is also excellent, I felt very informed throughout the process.
    Next time I need to do another renovation, Sundew Builders would be the first company I would contact.

  • Redecorate House

    DO NOT USE - all started well and Krzysztof was very efficient and promised the world. It started off great and the job progressed smoothly and I was so happy with the work being done. I then went away on holdiday for 2 weeks and it all went downhill. Almost all the guys were sent to other jobs, Krzysztof would never respond to messages, no updates given. Told the house would be finished for carpets. Carpet guys arrive to building site. No communication with anyone, terrible expectation management, poor finance skills, horrific time management. I paid £25,000 of the agreed £31,000 and the job is nowhere near finished. Arrived today and equipment taken off site. No response to any of my calls and messages. Also, sold him my oven and dishwasher which I was going to claim back from final invoice. So essentially stolen this. I also had someone buy my fridge and give him the cash, no sign of this. Builders were messy with no regard for the items we purchased in the house. Broken an expensive light fitting, got told we could claim off his insurance, this obviously not happening. Left with a Dirty, dusty house, that is unfinished and no money! Cannot stress how awful this experinace has been and would 1000% not recommend him or his company.

    Sundew Builders Limited's reply:

    Mrs. Laura Hau passes by very seriously with the truth. I always with all clients keep in constant contact on WhatsApp or skype
    After the first one, during the renovation she bring 2huge containers (TIR) with furniture which she left in house difficulties at work Another thing is Mrs. Laura Hau never hires me as a supervisor to keep control on her project she had a female designer responsible for it, next curiosity you found that some parts of the work are too expensive and, for example, she will do it with her husband and the effect was deplorable for example when it comes to removal of kitchen furniture she flooded the kitchen, this lady thought that £ 600 for removing furniture and plumbing and electric is too expensive and in the end I had to pay extra for a plumber and electrician and remove other furniture which Mrs. Laura's husband could not dismantle…
    Another it was very annoying to prepare the floor in the kitchen … (this fragment is suitable for the movie on YouTube) In the end, she paid only for the materials and she did not want to pay for additional work of my employees due to the fact that she was causing confusion.
    Why I was forced to give up this project. after a phone call from her husband in which he used a vulgar language and demanded me to leave the project immediately, there was nothing left but to leave
    (... woman called the police - the police were at my home as it turned out I did not steal anything - but she owes me 5k 4 additional work )

  • Major refurb - Victorian terraced house in Vauxhall

  • Repair water damage to kitchen ceiling and floor

    Krzystof and his team did an excellent job. They were fast and efficient and stayed within their budget, completing the work to a very high standard. We were particularly impressed by the way Krzystof kept us updated on the progress of the work throughout with photos and regular messages. Would highly recommend.

    The work was first class and communication throughout was excellent.

  • Refurbishment of one bed flat in Queens Park/Maida Hill

  • Painting/Decorating + Lights/Electrics

    Excellent standard of work, very nice builders and I was pleased with the job.

    All of the estate agents who saw the property after the refurbishment said how impressive the decoration looks.

  • Refurb 2 bed flat, new floor, kitchen and paint etc

    Krzysztof and his team did a top job. He was easy to work with, professional and open. Also, flexible and keen to do a good job. I would happily recommend him and will definitely be using his services again. Very pleased.

  • A 'selection box' of jobs in a lower ground floor flat

    Krzysztof and his team did an excellent job. Great communication throughout, the team turned up on time, worked quickly and efficiently and left the place looking great. A big thanks for all the effort to resolve the issue with the WC. I would happily recommend Krysztof and Sundew Builders

  • Refurbishing a bedroom + tasks in bathroom/hallway

    Krzysztof and his team did a good job overall but there were unresolved issues left at the end, which is the reason I am not leaving positive feedback.

    - Very good at keeping informed about the progress, responsive to any questions
    - Reasonable pricing
    - Generally the specialists he works with do a good quality job, and results of most tasks (painting, electric works, furniture assembly, constructing the sliding door) I am happy with.

    - completing the job took longer than I expected (and provisionally agreed) due to staff often prioritising other projects
    - no receipts were provided for materials purchased (although originally agreed)
    - Finally, the most disappointing part was the fact the shower was assembled incorrectly which resulted in leaking. I've pointed it out to Krzysztof, contacted the shower manufacturer to confirm the assembly process, reordered the parts required for assembly. Then, Krzysztof's guys did exactly the same thing they did the first time which, obviously, resulted in the same issue. When I said I cannot accept the job as complete and ask to redo once again, Krzysztof stopped responding and I had to find another specialist to do the job (which turned out really simple and was done within a couple of hours; everything has been working perfectly since then).

  • Knock down liv room wall + close door to adjoining wall

    They kept to the quote and even added on a small unrelated job whilst they were here.
    Very pleased!

  • Shop refurbishment

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Full refurbishment of 4,100 sq. ft. house in Richmond, Surrey. Krzy and his team did a fantastic job from start to finish, I cannot fault their professionalism or workmanship. I cannot recommend Krzy and his team enough.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Krzysztof & his team fixed the roof which involved repainting, resealing and some refitting of the lead. Some Victorian tiles were also refitted to the roof and internal decoration. All the work was carried out to a high standard and I was pleased with the quote was in my opinion very reasonable and did not increase as the job progressed. They were always punctual and polite and tolerated a dog & two small children frequently interrupting!
