Latest Reviews and Feedback

We used Paul when we need to replace the felt on our flat roof. Paul was happy to discuss our exact requirements and advised on improvements to the brickwork and parapet surrounding the flat roof. He has a wealth of building knowledge and is careful to make sure that all the angles are considered. By way of recommendation I need only say that we plan to use Paul for other work that we need doing on our home!

I have used Paul, from Buildform, for several years on numerous different projects on my house. He recently fitted a velux dome roof window and a new kitchen complete with new flooring, ceiling etc. I was extremely satisfied with the quality and professionalism of his work. His attention to detail is "2nd to none" and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.

My second time of using this company in as many months, this time for work to main roof and dormer window both leaking badly also did some work to remedy an ongoing damp problem very straightforward and explains problems and solutions before work started happy to recommend.

Used Buildform to repair leaking flat roof that was badly done by previous builders.  Very punctual and professional, wasn’t the cheapest quote but came recommended, so went with it and so far so good.

Excellent piece of remedial work carried out on roof. Previous contractor had not fixed any tiles contrary to recommendations of roof tile manufacturer. Several other issues were found and remedied along with guttering improvements. Paul gave links to manufacturer's website and provided copious details explaining what needed to be done and why. The demonstration when he lifted one tile up and the whole roof moved as if a sheet was very persuasive! I have no hesitation in recommending Paul for the work he carried out.

I used Paul at Buildform to cure an old ongoing damp/dry rot problem at my property. After 3 years of painting over walls and struggling with wet and damp floors everything is cured now with new plastering, tanking and a damp proof course. Paul also installed vented bricks under the floor space. Very good job would certainly use again.

Paul carried out significant repairs to an old Victorian wall which was in danger of collapsing but a feature of the property. He partially rebuilt the wall in keeping with the original style and character of the house but making it safe. He even uncovered some hidden wrought iron railings and brought them back to life! Paul's expertise and workmanship was excellent and his experience and skill with period properties ensured a great job. I've used Paul a number of times over the last 6 years and would recommend his workmanship and customer service to anyone.

Paul has done several jobs for us, most recently refitting a bathroom. His work has proved always to be of the highest standard, with great attention to detail and pride in his work. He is punctual and reliable and always kept us well informed of the progress of the job in hand. Can highly recommend.

This is the second time we have used Paul and once again he has delivered an excellent service. I have no hesitation in recommending him as reliable and dependable. Work has been carried out as promised, on time and to a high standard.

We had a bad case of dry rot in two of our ground floor rooms which necessitated replacing all supporting joists and damp proofing both the floors and walls. Paul carried out the work immaculately. He was always cheerful, nothing was too much trouble and any problems that arose he happily dealt with. He was a pleasure to have around. He even sorted out a couple of other little jobs around the house for me. I can’t recommend him highly enough.

Paul has recently dealt very well with a damp problem in our house that has been apparent for some years. He cleaned out the cavity in an outer wall and fitted a new window to provide better ventilation to the area concerned. He came when he said he would and kept us informed of any problems. We would be pleased to employ him again.

We engaged Mr Paul Davey to replace our mothers bathroom. He did an excellent job, was punctual and reliable and we were particularly impressed with his handling of our Mother who suffers from mild dementia. He was also very considerate of any possible inconvenience that the work might cause to neighbours. We have no hesitation in recommending him for anyone seeking similar work to be undertaken.

We used Buildform to fit kitchen and tile floor after a recommendation from a friend and we were so pleased we did as we have have had a lot of problems with so called builders in the past but these guys did what they said they would, in the timescale and also had time to fit some French doors overall very happy.

I have always found Paul to be extremely hardworking, honest and trustworthy. Paul communicates clearly, is very reliable and most importantly work is always carried out on time and to a very high standard. Paul’s workmanship as excellent and he is very accommodating and considerate of the fact he is working in someone’s home, taking time to minimise disruption and to clean up every day. I have been consulted and kept informed of progress of the jobs carried out every step of the way. Paul is extremely professional and it is very refreshing to find such a good company. 

The work Paul has undertaken has been fairly extensive and includes a kitchen extension (conversion from an old conservatory); a complete kitchen refit including flooring and new units and a bathroom refurb which included a separate shower and all tiling including the floor. I am extremely pleased with results of all of the work carried out and it has all been carried out with the least disruption possible.

Paul completed work to replace gutters and fascias at the front of our house and we were pleased with the work carried out.

I called Paul from Buildform Services after I experienced a burst pipe upstairs in my house. Paul arrived quickly and immediately got to work and repaired the pipe and then carried out work to fix the the ceiling. I was very impressed by the quick response to my phone call and how quickly Paul arrived to carry out the repairs. The quality of his workmanship was excellent and I was extremely impressed by both the work and service I received. Highly recommend to anyone. Great company.
