I will definitely use him again in the future.

    Genty and his team did a great job tiling our bathroom. We really wanted a high quality finish as we had purchased some expensive tiles and wanted the bathroom to look perfect. We were not disappointed. Genty was very easy to communicate with, his rates were very reasonable and the quality of the work very good.

    Subsequent to having the tiles in our bathroom fitted we also organised for Genty and his team to convert a cupboard into a WC and he also completed this job to a high standard and at a very reasonable price. Throughout the work he kept me up to date with progress and was happy to discuss my requirements and share ideas with me.

    I will use Genty again in the future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

  • Laminate flooring installation

    Genty was brilliant from start to efficient. Came the day after I called him to do my floor and was friendly, fast and efficient. I highly recommend him and his team as they very much take pride in their work.

  • Repaint bedroom/bathroom ceiling

    I had initially left good feedback for this job - Genty attended my property on time to paint my bedroom walls and ceiling, and en-suite bathroom ceiling in a single day.

    So it is with regret that upon further inspection, and with respect to my further experience with Genty, I have been forced to ask MyBuilder to withdraw my review, and to replaced it.

    Despite clearly stating it in the title of my advert, Genty painted my walls and bathroom ceiling, but not my bedroom ceiling. Perhaps it should have been made more clear during our initial meeting, but Genty had responded to my advert (which stated it as part of the job) with a quote which he then repeated upon meeting.

    The quality of the work, once dry, was not as we had expected. Despite 'numerous coats' some parts looked as though they had been painted only once, and Genty was called to do some touch-ups. This he did, and stayed for about 20 minutes.

    Additionally, there are numerous paint smears on my cupboards, radiators, curtains and blinds – the curtains and blinds will have to be replaced. My wooden floor has innumerate white specks of paint which while understandably hard to avoid, could have at least been remedied. My personal experience with dealing with Genty was initially quite positive, but when he attended my property to do touch-ups I really felt uncomfortable with him, and it is for this reason I have decided not to ask him to once again return, and leave this review.

  • Decking wpc

  • exterior painting

    Genty has done a great job of painting our sash windows,everything was done on time and to a good standard.

  • Attach curtain pole to concrete lintel

    Work completed to good standard.

  • Paint a kitchen

    This was my first time using My Builder. I liked the reviews left for Genty and invited him round for a quote. He turned up on time and gave me a very fair quote for the work and offered advice for which type of paint to get. He is very polite and punctual.The work he did for us is of a very high standard and we are very impressed. My husband is particularly fussy about paintwork, and even he is very happy. Genty and his team left no mess at all, tidying and cleaning up before they left. I won't hesitate to recommend him to anyone and will definitely be using him again.

  • Paint 5 rooms & ceilings in 2 bed flat Mill Hill

    Got Genty in to quote for painting but decided to go for flooring first. I booked him to remove carpets and put down laminate in 2 bedrooms. Very pleased with the job. Good communication, confirmed in advance, turned up on time, fast worker, good finish, made good and cleaned up. Gave some good advice and saved me some money. Straight talking and professional. Highly recommended.

  • Help to hang cupboards, shelves and large mirror!

    Genty was brilliant. He had clear communication from our first contact and arrived exactly when he said he would.
    We had struggled to hang a very heavy mirror but Genty did it with ease, as well as hanging some wall cabinets and floating shelves (which were challenging due to wonky walls!)
    Very quick, neat and friendly. I would recommend him to anyone and will gladly use again.

    This was the best builder experience I've had. He was efficient, tidy, polite, worked hard and did a great job. The rooms he painted look fantastic and he sorted out lots of little things that had been annoying me for months. I wholly recommend him and will be using him for anything else that comes up

  • Living room-materials provided

    Genty is an excellent decorator. Worked incredibly efficiently and to a high standard over 3 days repainting our living room. Highly recommended!

  • hallway doors/bathroom mirror/ installing wire wool

  • To tile a small ensuite bathroom

    I originally hired Genty to tile my small ensuite bathroom but then the job turned into a much bigger job including decorating my newly converted loft room including the ensuite and stripping the old wallpaper, replastering the walls and decorating my hallway, lounge and front room.
    Genty is polite and hard working and got the job finished relatively quickly. After he had finished I noticed some hair line cracks appear in the paint work where the walls had been plastered. I think they had been painted too quickly before the plaster had had dried properly. Anyway, Genty has come back and refilled and repainted the cracks and all looks perfect now. He also finished off painting a missed skirting board.
    Overall I am pleased with the job.

    Genty did a really great job at our flat. He re-hung some doors in one of our bedrooms and the living room so that they opened outwards and made the rooms look bigger.

He was quite good in accommodating this change in scope and requoted the price which we accepted. He finished the work within two and half days spanning four days which meant the disruption to our lives was kept at minimal.
    He has strong work ethics, arrives on time in the morning and works really hard and sometimes until late in the evening without taking any breaks apart from lunch. He ensured there was minimal waste whilst installing wooden floor. He did not change his costs in between and ensured all of the agreed scope was delivered to our satisfaction. We will definitely hire him again in the future.

He even went the extra step of tidying up a few bits and pieces of dust and chippings that he had made when carrying out the work (which was totally unnecessary and he didn't have to do it!) In total, well priced, hard working and a nice bloke. Couldn't recommend him enough. Will hire him again without hesitation.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Genty was employed by me to undertake a project including painting of walls, doors, windows and ceilings, some of the windows also required extensive repairs. He wallpapered three feature walls with what is very expensive wallpaper and completely fitted oak floors throughout. I am in fact a perfectionist and his work was of the highest standard. Everything was completed within the time scale agreed and in fact was slightly under budget. Genty is a very professional tradesman and very clean and tidy. Ensuring the least amount of disruption to my home. I found Genty on his website and was impressed with his feedback from other satisfied customers. This work was carried out in August this year. Genty is a tradesman who takes pride in his workmanship and i would have no hesitation employing him again. I wish him every success.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    I recently employed Top Decorator to paint two rooms in my house. I was pleased with their work, found them fast, clean and reasonably priced. They were a pleasure to have in the house. They also fitted laminate flooring - again they did a good job at a good price. I would happily recommend them to anyone looking for reliable, skilled workmen.
