GK Builders

  • Kitchen Refurbishment

    The work was good but their attitude was not. As soon as they started they requested money which was not agreed but I Reluctantly agreed to pay for sum of the materials and then a week went by and they requested more but I refused. The contract was with GK builders but they sub-contracted the work to somebody else and I refused to pay as the agreement was to pay once the work was complete. Once the work was complete some snagging was left I withheld some money but then the problems started to happen, firstly the waste pipe joint opened and flooded the kitchen unit, secondly noticed a gas leak to the hob and had to get a gas sure engineer to repair the fault as they did not answer their phone. The most important was the worktop joint which started to swell and I advised them by SMS because they would not pick up the phone. They eventually sent somebody around to do the snagging and he came and installed a pipe the ventillation fan but did not fit an external vent or filled in the hole on the outside and left in a hurry. Although I have some money to pay them but the damage to the worktops has caused me substantial loss has I have to get two more worktops and employ a joiner to fit the new worktops. They took a lot of time to complete the works and I would not recommend them to any one. I requested a receipt as this was my guarantee for two years but its not worth the paper its written on. Pure cowboys

  • Flat refurbishment

    I was very pleased with the work carried out by Kris and Gregor. They completed the work on time and on budget to a very good standard. They were helpful with suggestions throughout the build and polite and very hard working. I would definitely recommend them for any project and will use them again for any future works. A very positive experience with no problems or delays. A satisfied customer.

  • flat Glasgow

    Chris and Greg hold 40 years of experience between each other and honestly you can tell. The quality of their work is outstanding with attention to smallest details. There was no delay or any major problems . They have completed full refurbishment of one bedroom apartment in George Square Glasgow: suspended ceilings, led lighting lithing throughout, plastering and painting, new wooden floors, build-in wardrobes, brand new fitted kitchen, tiling the batroom, plumbing, rewiring all in 4 weeks . Working to the budget . Very rare to find such a talented professional. Couldnt recommend them enough.

  • Internal convertion work

  • Changes in a new house / Refurbishment

    Kris & Gregor contact us with professionalism and when they came to our house they continued providing a professional approach to all matters in change. They are smart and have the expertise needed to do the job which is the perfect combination to have excellent results. They looked carefully all areas that they need to work on, they examined all wiring, piping etc carefully and they provided very satisfactory answers and opinions to all subjects. The work is still in progress but I felt confident with them from the beginning due to their professionalism and their quotation allowed us to hire them since they provided reasonable prices for the whole project.

  • Full flat refurbishment

    We hired Kris and Gregor based on the 100% positive feedback they had on the MyBuilder site; the impression we had of them on their quotation visit and their pricing which was competitive.

    Kris, Gregor and the team managed what was quite a large and complex project exceptionally well. Over the 12 weeks of the complete flat refurbishment they worked tirelessly and professionally – keeping us updated and discussing any issues with us quickly and very amicably.

    The team stripped our Victorian flat back to bare bones and then rebuilt and modernised it to our plans – offering advice and making real improvements to our initial ideas. Work included covered: full re-wire, installation of central heating system and new pipework throughout, structural and layout changes, installation of a new kitchen and appliances, installation of a new bathroom, joinery and woodwork, and decoration throughout.

    Every job was carried out to a very high standard and to agreed timescales.

    We cannot recommend them highly enough and we will use Kris again should we ever require a builder (and have recommended to numerous friends already) – terrific and much appreciated.

  • Paster 4 rooms

    Kris and Gregor completed the plastering of four rooms and a large hall stairs and landing as well as tiling and installing two bathrooms. The quality of their skimming and tiling is excellent and they were always willing to be flexible with their schedule to accommodate any changes that I needed. I recommend them and intend to use them again in the near future for further work - thanks Zelikbud!

  • Kitchen Remodelling

    We were unfortunately let down by a different company on the day the remodelling of the kitchen in our tenement flat was supposed to start. This actually turned out to be a stroke of good luck as Kris, Gregor and the Zelikbud team visited at short notice, gave us a very competitive quote and were available to start our within the week. Given the delay from the first builders, the Zelikbud team had less than three weeks to complete the work but they were positive they could meet the timescales. The work included rewiring, replumbing, installing a whole new kitchen and appliances, installing new radiators, building a new partition, plastering all walls and ceiling, installing skirtings, tiling – the works! On top of all this, we were extremely fussy clients with a very clear design objective for the room, and despite additional tasks being required at various times throughout the programme, nothing was too much hassle for Gregor and the team. The work was completed on time and within the agreed budget. We would whole-heartedly recommend Zelikbud to anyone considering remodelling/refurbishment works – they are incredibly hard working, they maintained communication throughout the project and their attention to detail across all the trades was unbelievably high. Keep up the good work!

  • Laminate Flooring

    I hired Kris to fit laminate in my entire flat of 4 bedrooms, living room, and hall plus vinyl in kitchen and bathroom.

    It was a tough decision to hire the right builder as you can't change laminate everyday and have to live with the quality whatever it is for a long time.

    In terms of workmanship and quality of work, overall it was 'OKish' but by no means top rated at all. It looks good overall but their are imperfections. They are not experienced in fitting vinyl and they should have been upfront about it. Some edges are cut short.
    Laminate makes squeaky noise in some areas and some planks have clear visible gaps where the planks have not been pushed all the way in. Part of the problem is my floor is not level but this is not the only reason and no floor in any house is perfectly level anyway.

    In terms of listening to customer and overall dealing I would give 10 out of 10 for that. The boys working on site were very punctual, never said no and were very approachable. They tried their best but at the end of the day we have to live with the imperfections. I called Kris to come have a look at the issues, he promised to come back but never did.
    Overall Kris and co are better than many Builders I have used in the past but still their are imperfections.

  • Property renovation

    We asked Kris, Gregor and the team to completely renovate out conversion in the west end. This included stripping the house back to a bare she'll and completely renovating . I cannot recommend them highly enough. Their price was superb value and the quality of there work was second to none. The finish is outstanding . I have already have them lined up for some more work in the house

  • Knocking through internal tenement masonry wall

    We commissioned Kris and his team to do full refurb of our tenement flat. We took their advice on not knocking down the internal wall and it's the best decision we made.

    This started with ripping out the old units, fittings etc. The next phases included extensive plastering, painting, installing a new kitchen and bathroom, wooden flooring etc.

    The guys were thoroughly professional, accommodating when we made errors on design and the many mistakes from BandQ.

    Although there was some language barriers it was easily overcome and the guys always sent images to explain.

    Great job and a as a result an amazing looking flat.

    Thanks to Kris and all.


  • painting

    Excellent service, turned up on time as arranged and carried out the agreed works to a good standard. Would recommend and would use again

  • Flat renovation

    I can only say that the quality of the work was only matched by the fact that they finished nearly 2 weeks Early. The estate agent who sold my property was amazed by the quality and look of my flat, thank you very much.

  • stripping wallpaper,skimming,tiling bathroom floor etc

    Excellent work. Completed quicker than planned. I asked for more jobs to be done as work was almost completed. Will use for future work and very good estimates for work given with no additional charges added. I was able to go to work and leave guys with keys. Very happy overall 😀

  • Kitchen fitting, bathroom(s) renewal,flooring, painting

    Job was done as per agreement. Few extra jobs carried out at reasonable cost. Definitely would recommend Kris and Slaw as competent providers...

  • Fitting a small kitchen 3m X 2m size, ~9 cabinets

    Overall the work was done to a good standard and very quickly, despite a few setbacks that caused the job to run slightly over the originally planned time. Would use again for future work.

  • Small extension and kitchen installation

  • 3 bed flat refurb in Glasgow Southside

    Kris and the Zelikbud team did a fantastic job in transforming our dingy wee ex-rental flat into a warm, bright home with lovely finishing touches. The team were very good at helping us to find ways to make the most of awkward spaces, create more storage and hide away all the utilities and plumbing, giving us a sense of space in what had been a cramped flat.

    The job included fitting new kitchen and bathroom, plastering, rewiring, laying wood floors, tiling, joinery and decorating. The job was completed on budget and on time, finishes were of a very high standard and the pricing was transparent throughout. Zelikbud were able to accommodate requested changes to the job spec without issue. Snags were minor and were quickly taken care of. The team were also professional, friendly and helpful and tidied up after themselves! I would recommend Zelikbud and would use them again.

  • Bathroom tilling & fitting

    Bathroom was done to a very high standard.

  • Paint garage externally

    Great job, waited until the weather was more suitable for painting and then painted at first oppourtunity. Very good communication all the way through.

  • Plastering and painting

    Very good job. Basically gave them the keys and left them to it as I went on holiday - all done when I came back. Didn't mind when I asked them to do extra things as well. One thing that I think is great is their commumication. Marek made sure that I knew whem they were coming what they were planning on doing etc. Highly recommend

  • Renovations

    We hired Kris and Mark for a series of several renovations in a 1930's home.

    First impression was that they were extremely meticulous when estimating the work to be done, asking a lot of questions and carefully gathering our requirements. It was this attention to detail that led us to choosing them in the first place.

    It was undoubtedly quite an unusual request in that we needed a small prayer room built out of what was previously a cupboard, but this was no problem at all.

    The builders took exactly the estimated 10 days to complete the work and on viewing it afterwards, we can say it has been done to a very high standard. Note we did increase the scope slightly (thus increasing the cost) but this was still completed within the 10 days.

    There were a couple of minor mishaps around the windows but these were quickly resolved to our complete satisfaction and we are still very happy with the results.

    Perhaps not as extensive as the previous job, but we are already coming up with a few more items for a scope for a new job and full intend to hire these builders again


  • Put up plaster ceiling in box room, plaster in Kitchen.

  • General building work

    These people were amazing on the job. They have been nothing but hard working and very very helpful. They have renovated 99,9% of our house and have done an excellent job. They finished everything to a very high standard. Extreme value for money and even reimbursed us for materials not used. I would highly recommend them for any job big or small. Will not use any other builder. If you are looking for the perfect builder, your search has stopped, DO NOT LOOK ANY FURTHER. I RECOMMEND THEM FOR ANYTHING ASAP. Thank you Zelikbud for everything. Hope you enjoyed the bbq.

  • Plastering and door fitting

    Job well done and and on time. Plastering carried out to high standard, much better smooth finish then previous experience with other companies. Few snagging items were rectified before work completion. Would recommend.

  • Plaster 2 walls 12x9, 5x9 + some patching

    Krzysztof did an excellent job skimming two walls for a new bedroom. He was very prompt in arranging a time to view the job and also to set a date for work to be carried out. His work was done to a high standard and I would happily recommend him to anyone requiring a plasterer.

  • Strip/Plaster(skim)/Paint

    decent job done. we had a couple of differnet crews out. cannot sing the praises of the plasterers enough. Good job and good blokes. One of the 2 painters, however, soured things. But, got to remember every big job is going to have somethings not go quite right. The 2 bosses of Zelicbud, Mario & Krzystof, put it right without hassle. Indeed, Mario was onsite every day at some point or another which was always reassuring. Would hire again.

  • Full renovation of a victorian house in Oban

  • Two double bedrroms to be painted

    A reasonable job done on painting the walls and ceiling white - much better than I would manage myself! Turned up on time, worked hard all day, reasonably priced for the work done.

I cannot recommend them highly enough, really genuine guys too. I will 100% be using them again for any jobs that come up. The one thing I really liked was the advice they gave when fitting the kitchen.. I had a set plan in my head but the guys thought some things would look better differently.. and helped me decide to change a few bits for the better. The end result is brilliant. Thanks again Mariusz and Kris, brilliant job.

  • Paint bathroom and frames of new PVC windows

    Mariusz and Krzysztof were really quick to come round and see my job, took a careful interest in what I needed and arranged to do the job at my convenience very quickly for an excellent price. There were a few minor issues I had with the paint work but when I rang them to discuss they were extremely nice about that and Krzysztof was around the next day, apologetic, to get things exactly the way I wanted them.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    I confirm that I have dealt with Mr Krzysztof Rutkiewicz in May 2012, during which time he provided a high quality service in the area of home improvements. Mr Rutkiewicz did a great job in our kitchen where he put tiles on the floor. It looks really amazing. He also put tiles on the walls and floor in our small downstairs toilet using his own ideas to make it look bigger. Both me and my wife are impressed with his work and the final result. It took him exactly the amount of time as he said in the beginning and you can see the results from the photos. He gave us lots of advice regarding trade products that helped to save a bit of money. I can confidently recommend Mr Rutkiewicz as a solid, reliable, hard-working and honest expert in this field. Thank You Krzysztof and hope to see you soon on our next project.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Krzysztof Rutkiewicz from Zelikbud fitted Stoneware tiles to my kitchen floor. Krzysztof turned up on time and complete the job on schedule. He was always clean & tidy. He was fast and efficient and the quality of his work was to a good standard. I would recommend him to friends and family if they needed work. Krzysztof also offers a very reasonable price.
