Full refurbishment for the whole flat Restoration & Refurbishment
Octavian is a really great guy, very reliable, never disappoint, maintained good communication with us all the time.
As a customer, obviously the most important part is great craftmanship, we have used other teams before and you can easily tell the difference between his work and the others. From things such as painting (you can tell they have paint and sand multiple times to provide such great finishing), tile installation (the gap between each tile is tiny, and they are very flat), Octavian’s team can get them all done.
This job involves a full flat refurbishment, so the flat was completely stripped, knocked down a few walls, install new pipes / wire etc. During his work he has spotted many things that we have not noticed before. Unlike some other contractors who do not care, they will just finish what they were asked to do and leave. Octavian spotted it and recommend us the best solution for it, to provide the best outcome for the project. It is important to find someone who do care about the customer and the project. We will use him again for our future projects. Thanks. Tommy

3 bed Flat Refurb in East London Conversions - General
External Works and Repairs on Large House for Freeholder
We had hired Chiro to complete External Works and Repairs on the Exterior of a building that comprised 2 flats on behalf of the Freeholder. From the outset Octavian and his crew were very professional to deal with in terms of negotiating the price, start date and the works to be completed. The project involved repairing brickwork, roof tiles, ridge tiles, parapet walls, pointing, facia, plaster work, fixing windows/sills and finally sanding and painting etc and required a comprehensive repair of the exterior of the building.
Much of the work was quite intricate and required careful repair of damaged areas and often coming up with creative solutions to get a good finish. The workmanship and attention to detail was very impressive and even involved them doing online research to find an alternative to old ridge tiles that were no longer available. Any issues or additional requests that arose were favourably received and dealt with immediately. The project started and was completed on the agreed dates and the site was left clean and looking well. Overall I would highly recommend Octavian and his crew to other clients.

general refurb of 3-bed flat Restoration & Refurbishment
Octavian and his team undertook a top-to-bottom renovation of my previously-decrepit three-bedroom maisonette. This involved doing pretty much everything -- replastering throughout, new flooring throughout, some re-plumbing, re-wiring throughout, new central heating, new boiler, new kitchen, new bathroom, knocking through walls, creating a new toilet room out of a cupboard, new woodwork throughout, new built-in shelving, repainting, and more besides.
Octavian was extremely helpful in all of this. The quality of work was excellent; I'm very happy. He also kept to his initially estimated time, getting several of his team at the property at the same time in order to get the work done quickly (the only delays were on my side, when I couldn't get the freeholder to give consents in an expeditious manner; Octavian was admirably patient about this delay from me!).
On price, Octavian provided a reasonable "all in" quote for labour, which he kept to without any quibble whatsoever (despite the odd area ending up being more work than expected, and my requests for minor bits of additional work).
In summary, I'm very happy with every aspect of the work and service.

Complete renovation of two bed flat in Leyton Restoration & Refurbishment
Octavian and his team have been absolutely fantastic. They have completely renovated the flat, adding a dormer loft, rewiring and re-plumbing the entire building and all this work has been done to the highest quality.
He has been as good as his word at every step of the way and I could not recommend him highly enough.
If and when we start another project we will definitely be contacting Octavian and his team again.

Refurbishment of 4 bedroom house Restoration & Refurbishment
We hired Octavian and his team for a renovation of our 4 bedroom house. This involved structural work, installing new kitchen/bathrooms and new flooring throughout.
Octavian was helpful to work with and proactive in completing the work. His team were accommodating as we amended plans as the work progressed and went above and beyond to get the work completed by our moving date.
They did a brilliant job and would certainly look to Octavian and his team again for future work.

3-bed house renovation incl. new plumbing and electric Restoration & Refurbishment
Hi Last year we have hired Octavian and his team for the complete renovation of our newly purchased 3 bedroom house. The scope of work was really extensive. Guys removed some of the internal walls, did new openings, and installed the steelwork accordingly to the structural engineer’s specification. They also put the new solid insulated subfloor and wet underfloor heating on the entire ground floor. We asked them to re-build the old chimney breast in the living room. Octavian’s team also did the completely new re-wiring and plumbing in all house, installed new boiler and intelligent central heating. All the ceilings and floors ware removed and replaced. They renovated the old staircase, applied the fibre glass mesh to all the walls. Guys also installed new kitchen units, kitchen appliances and bathroom.
We are truly grateful for Octavians’s team excellent work and for converting our dated house into lovely, bright and cosy home. Aurelius, Daniel, John, Kosmin and rest of the team are professional, hard working, trustworthy builders and very friendly and polite guys. Daniel, carpenter is an exceptionally skilled craftsman with real passion for his work. Octavian’s team really went the extra mile and the finish is of a very high standard.
The project was completed within an agreed budget and on time.
We already recommend Octavian to friends so they are currently working in our friends’ property.
We would use this team again in a heartbeat.

knocking through internal wall Conversions - General
I can't praise these guys enough.
Their quote was one of the most reasonable of the many people i saw, plus their time frame was shorter than all the other quotes.
They were professional, considerate to the neighbours and kept the place very tidy.
The team was super helpful- suggesting improvements on the original spec, pointing out potential issues with my design and were flexible with changes i made to the plan later on.
They are very honest (something i think should be highlighted and praised in an industry that is sadly not known for such things)- there were times when they could have ignored or worked around potential future issues, and would have been within the brief that i gave them, but instead they went above and beyond to ensure that they did the best job possible.
They are perfectionists and it really does show through in the work that they do.
I honestly don't have a bad word to say about them. i've already told them that i hope to hire them again in the future to work on my parents house!
i have no hesitations in recommending these guys!

victorian mid terrace refurb including some structural Restoration & Refurbishment
Absolutely fantastic in every way!
Octavian was one of 4 builders to quote for my project to have my victorian terraced house rennovated from top to bottom (structural layout changes, re-wire, central htg, the works); he came in joint lowest price and quoted to complete it in 7 weeks, compared to the others stating 12-13 weeks... and he delivered!
From start to finish, Octavian and his team were brilliant. They worked exceptionally hard, were clean and tidy, went above and beyond, suggesting improvements to my original plan, doing extra boxing in around the boiler etc. The quality of the work is excellent too.
Genuinely nothing was too much trouble and Octavian was available to speak to any time. His team are lovely and skilled, so friendly, polite and helpful.
I cannot recommend them enough and have done already to all of my friends and family!

Refurbishment (inc electrics, plumbing, plastering) Restoration & Refurbishment
We hired Octavian's team to carry out rewiring, central heating installation, plastering, and a few odd jobs in a refurbishment. Octavian was very friendly and considerate and gave a good value for money price, throwing in some things for free. The job took six weeks instead of the estimated five, but the delay was more down to discovering more repairs that needed to be done, rather that the way the team worked. Octavian was very good at responding to calls or emails in a timely way. The team didn't always get the detail right or do things exactly as we expected (so best to discuss detailed plans in advance and write them down!), but did correct quite a few things we pointed out. Octavian arranged a structural engineer to inspect the necessary aspects of the job on our request.

We were quoted 6 weeks for the job (others quoted longer) and Octavian and his team finished in time. They are honest, reliable (Octavian was always on time and available to speak at all hours on the phone) and incredibly friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone and hope that we will be able to use their services again in the future.
Thank you, Octavian.

House Refurb in East London Restoration & Refurbishment
An excellent job in every way.
We bought a two storey terraced house that was completely unsuitable to live in. Octavian and his team did a complete renovation, turning it into our dream house in just 8 weeks. Originally the house was ridden with damp, dodgy extensions and the garden was creating flooding problems underneath the house. Starting from scratch, demolition was provided and all the structural problems were fixed & the gardens re-done. New plumbing & gas works were installed as well as a re-haul of the electrical infrastructure.
Every element of the house was renovated to the highest standard, from floorboards to tiling, carpets, re-plastering of all walls, interior and exterior painting, brand new kitchen, two beautiful bathrooms and much more, turning it into a beautiful 3 bedroom family house. From start to finish, Octavian managed the project with professionalism, expertise, integrity and ease. The experience was smoother than we could have imagined. Remaining in close contact, he and his team went out of their way for us on multiple occasions, providing solutions we’d have never expected. The shocking part was they completed everything within the timeline specified – 8 weeks. The job was enormous and the finishings were beautiful.
It is very hard to find honest builders with the craftmanship, integrity and total focus on the project at hand.
We’re recommending Octavian and his team to all our friends and family.
Outstanding work guys! Thank you

Very friendly, polite, and conscientious. Aurel and the team made sure the rest of the house was properly protected and completed the work to a very high standard. Aurel was also helpful in suggesting alternatives to the original plan, that wasn't necessarily an increase in cost. Overall, a very good service from some very pleasant people. Would definitely recommend Aurel and the team again.

Refurbishment of flat Restoration & Refurbishment
We are extremely pleased with the work that Octavian and team have done for us. We have recommended them to friends already and would definitely work with them again.
We had quite a few quotes for the works and Octavian offers a very competitive price, while providing a service of excellent quality. The whole refurbishment was completed for exceptional value for money, in our opinion. The sale of the flat took much longer than expected and the start of the work was therefore significantly delayed – but Octavian was ready to start once we received the keys without any further delay, as he has a large team.
First of all, the general attitude, friendly approach and good communication skills were really important to us as it really means that the whole process of a full flat refurbishment is far less stressful.
Second of all, the quality of all the work was excellent - our job included a full rewiring of the flat, demolition of a few walls, plastering and painting, installation of floors, new heating system, bathroom and kitchen from scratch, installation of a vapourmist and a smart home control system (Nest). At the end the flat was thoroughly cleaned and handed over ready to move in. Certificates for gas work and electrical were also provided upon completion. We asked him to come over for some final touch-ups after the work was finalised (as you would expect from such a comprehensive job) – this was not a problem and all issues were quickly resolved.

Painting and carpet removing from a house / N15 Painting & Decorating
Very happy with Octavian and Sammy and the work they did on our property. Octavian was a pleasure to deal with - polite, helpful, on time, hard working, positive. Nothing was too much trouble. He was good at communicating - answered calls and emails in timely manner. He was conscientious (wanted us to be happy with the work, called to check things if he was unsure what we'd want when things cropped up along the way).
The word we had done: engineered floors sanded and oiled (2 coats). Carpets ripped up and floorboards sanded and oiled (3 coats). Front door fitted, painted, and accessories fitted. I added more to the job and it was no problem (oiled garden decking and all garden fencing). He also added shelves into a cupboard and helped put up garden furniture at no cost. I would 100% recommend them and will be using again.

Find and fit kitchen (electric/gas skills needed) Kitchen Fitting
Pretty much a dream from start to finish. Basically, if you can hire him, do, and get him to buy all the materials if you can - you'll save buckets.
I've got an ex-council flat that needed a complete refurbishment.
Octavian not only provided the best value quote - he understood from the outset the quality of finish I was expecting. From flooring to kitchens he pointed me in the right direction for affordable quality materials when I was buying my own and negotiated hard for me when he was getting things (I'm pretty sure I now have the best value kitchen in London!). He also took me through all receipts and costs to ensure I was happy at every stage before invoicing.
His team fitted floors and skirting throughout, removed 3 plasterboard cupboards and replastered all ceilings and walls that needed it, knocked through a loo and bathroom, and removed and refitted the kitchen and bathroom, all in the space of 6 weeks. His price also included all of the little things that make a difference in a property like mine - removing old/unnecessary switches, new electricity casings, rehousing wires, smoothing out swirled ceilings - and the things that make it easy to finish the bits I wanted to do myself, like mist-coating all the new plaster for painting.
He also took last minute changes (including me deciding to put a new bathroom in 2 weeks into the works) and personal whims (my kitchen tiles are laid out in a very specific pattern) in his stride.

One bedroom flat refurbishment Restoration & Refurbishment
I used CHIRO Alliance for the complete refurbishment of my flat and I must say that I was very impressed with the level of service and standard of work. The project was mainly managed by Octavian as I was away from the property for the majority of the time. He was happy to receive and sign for goods ordered and also to go out and collect items that had been missed or needed replacing. When problems arose he was quick to communicate the issues to me and offer solutions to the problems encountered. He would send picture updates and offered a convenient and fair payment plan. I'm very satisfied with the standard of work and for the couple of slight snags I had, he returned quickly to the property without issue. Since this major project I have used his service again for smaller jobs and these have also been completed quickly and efficiently. The feedback from my tenants was also extremely positive commenting how professional and polite they were ! I would have no hesitation in recommending him and his team.

It's a pleasure to work with Octavian from the start. He is polite and communicates very well. His quote was the best among the 4 builders we interviewed. He took us to shop for materials at B&Q, Wickes and other stores so that we are totally satisfied with the materials used. After that he went to the stores many times himself when some items were missing. During the project we changed the plan and added bits of extra work, but he accepted them with a smile and completed them without charging more.
He was efficient and finished the project on time. He also cleaned our flat after finishing the works. We are very happy with the quality of the work done. We would work with Octavian again with any future project, and would recommend him to anyone.

Mr. Anthony Carfantan,
Why you don't describe the plumbing issues? You bought a cheap back to wall toilet cistern that broke after 3 months of use!!! We did it right first time but we won't do it second time for free just because you wanted to save money!! The other hand we haven't done any finishing work as painting or similar,you painted the flat and now you're sorry?? Don't blame us for that please!
We did everything at high standards and also a lot of extra work which Mr. Anthony didn't paid for! Shame!
This problems happens only with stingy customers who wants to save money with all costs,pay right money for right materials!
All the best,

Re-plaster ceiling, walls, paint and general uplift Restoration & Refurbishment
Best builders I've worked with in over 12 years of property renovations.
WHAT THEY DID: full refurbishment of a 2-bedroom flat in London, including a complete redesign and build of an ultra luxury designer bathroom. The refurbishment included new walls, ceiling, doors, electrics and paintwork.
HOW LONG IT TOOK: 4 weeks exactly, as quoted. They worked perfectly to schedule and they were never late, not even once.
HOW THEY DID IT: absolutely perfectly well!
WHY THEY STOOD OUT: I've been refurbishing properties for over 12 years, and these guys have been the best builders I have had the pleasure to work with.
Their attention to detail was impeccable. Every single corner of the flat was finished to extremely high specs (even higher than the ones I had requested).
They were incredibly proactive. For example, when I was in a crisis towards the end of the works (because the delivery of my doors was going to be late), they drove 600 miles to go pick up the doors themselves and install them all in one day. Other builders would have simply told me "bad luck, hire us again when you get your doors".
ABOUT THE BAD REVIEW THEY HAD BEFORE: I don't know what that customer complained about. My toilet, which has a complicated in-wall system, was installed perfectly. It works flawlessly and these guys knew what they were doing all along.
PLUS: they came back weeks after the job was done to fix a small issue! No charge!
AND THEY ARE JUST GREAT!!!

refurbishment of 2 bedrooms and other minor works Restoration & Refurbishment
We hired CHIRO to do a general cosmetic overhaul of our 2 bed home and were incredibly impressed with the results. Octavian and his brothers came to:
*Paint all rooms, doors, ceilings upstairs and downstairs
*Fix plaster where necessary
*remove carpets and strip original floorboards then stain them in all upstairs rooms and staircase
*in addition we wanted the stairs to have a painted front with stained step on top (it looks really cool!)
*expose brickwork in main bedroom and add a piece of plaster board to the middle of it to cover where the old chimney was
*route all visible wires under the floor boards, add extra power points
Not only was the standard of the work exceptional it was the extra mile that Octavian went that really impressed us, they found some rotten floorboards, so they burnt and stained some new floorboards to blend them in. They left the house incredibly tidy after they had finished and touched up a couple of final points when they came round to check everything was ok. All this work was carried out whilst we were away on holiday but we trusted them with keys to our home and came back to a stunning new look.
We wouldn't hesitate to hire Octavian, Aurelian and Florian again and are already talking to them about installing a slate patio.

Painting 90m2 flat Painting & Decorating
We would definitely recommend CHIRO Alliance. The job was done on time, for a fair price and it was completed to high standards. But most important was the flexibility: last minute additions were accomodated at no or little extra cost, and always with a can-do attitude. We would work again with them without hesitation!

We're absolutely delighted with every aspect of the work delivered by Octavian and his team. The price was competitive, the quality of the work is first rate and both the time and money estimates were 100% accurate.
Thank you again :)

Painting/decorating of 1st floor and loft in a 4 bed Restoration & Refurbishment
I was lucky enough to hire these 3 brothers for a painting and decorating job.
The old house proved problematic and team Chiro helped me undertake a refurb and restoration of a 4 bedroom house.
They were patient and advised every step of the way. They needed to be as I had only planned for a painting and redecorating job. They were even able to recommend trusted electricians to rewire the house an plumbers to redo all the radiators and fix the old boiler.
-The first floor was completely gutted, plastered, internal walls rebuilt and then decorated to a high standard including bespoke wardrobes.
-Old floorboards were made good and looked good.
-The original parquet flooring was made to look 1960s again.
-Leaks were fixed, roof tiles were fixed, windows re-aligned.
-Custom door frames were made for period doors
-The painting, 3 colours in each of the rooms, was done to a very high standard.
-Building waste (lots of it) disposed of.
I would and will use Octavian, Aurel and Florin again.
Very serious, kind hearted and funny hard working people who I miss dearly.
Happy to recommend so contact me if a reference is required.

Various Restoration & Refurbishment
They put in new ceilings and spotlights in my hall and bathroom, painted walls and woodwork in bathroom, replastered walls and painted everything in the hallway and sanded and varnish the wooden floor. Also put down new carpets in living room and bedroom and sanded down and painted my balcony door. Fixed a couple of 'niggles' for me as well; a bathroom window which didn't close properly and a dimmer switch which didn't work. They were polite, friendly, reasonably priced, worked to a good standard and cleaned up at the end. I would highly recommend them.

Octavian and his brother, Aurelian worked on our flat with speed and efficiency. We were happy to leave them to get on with things and often progressed the job much further than our expectations.
The overall quality of their work was fantastic and of a high standard, we are so pleased with the results
They have even promised to come back and finish the minor bits that have gone over time.
Very polite and friendly we would love for them to do more work for us in the future and we will definitely recommend them to all our friends. We will miss them being there on time everyday :)

Octavian and his brother have done an excellent job of retiling our terrace. They were punctual, polite, hard working and good at communicating, ringing up the day before to confirm and letting us know when they were going to be half an hour late due to heave traffic. Not only was the tiling well done, but they were also incredibly tidy, cleaning up brilliantly at the end of each day. I have no reservations about recommending them and would definately use them again if we needed similar work doing else where in our property.
