Balham Builders are an exemplary building firm; keeping to both budget and brief. They worked quickly and neatly redecorating a 5-bedroom house, building a garden room and remodelling the bathroom. Not only do I recommend using them (as my architect friend did for me) I am also happy to provide a verbal reference if useful. Alex Mawer (Hither Green, London)

Wojciech Abbas undertook work on the rear wall of our home in June 2015. The work consisted of fitting a large lintel, removing the wall below,
and finishing in preparation for a large sliding patio door to be fitted. He was very knowledgeable, organised the temporary support required while the lintel was being fitted, and offered much sound advice which has benefitted the project. Wojciech worked very hard to complete his contract, finishing before schedule. The quality of his work is very high – he has a real drive to get things right, and with a quality finish. He was careful to protect our home from damage, and very thorough to minimise mess, clearing up at the end of each day. I have no hesitation in recommending him.

Wojciech Abbas undertook two large renovation projects in two of our homes from August-September 2015 and then from June-August 2016. Our first project with Wojciech consisted of a total refurbishment of our 1 bedroom flat, including new flooring, new bathroom, new central heating with radiators and boiler, new kitchen installation and plasteringOur second project in a 2 bedroom victorian flat consisted of newkitchen installation, wall repairs, floor sanding and finishing, fireplace installation and decoration including new covings and full painting being carried out. Wojciech was a pleasure to work with from the beginning, he provided a lot of time up front to finalise the quote and talk me through all possible options before beginning. He highlighted a few areas of potential problems which I wasn’t aware of from the beginning and we planned around these to ensure the budget could be maintained in the timeline. Wojciech kept us updated regularly throughout the project and was fantastic at communicating his process. He worked hard to provide a quality finish within our budget and provided a variety of options for us to select from to help control our spend. Overall we were very happy with the finished quality and would recommend to work with him again and plan to work with him again ourselves in the future.
