Paul took the time to fully assess the issues that my 1890's Victorian Cottage was facing.
He helped me prioritise the maintenance and repair jobs that were needed to resolve the signs of damp that were evident in one of the rooms.
Paul repaired the roof and recommended guttering with a greater capacity, he also sympathetically restored other areas of my period property.
He kept me fully informed with progress updates, which also included a video of the work he'd done (to help me understand the extent of any works required) and to provide assurance.
I've allowed a few weeks and heavy rain to pass before completing this review so that I can fairly say that these jobs have made a world of difference.
I found Paul to be reliable, trust worthy, professional & helpful.

I have used Paul, from Buildform for several projects on my house over the last few years. The most recent being a velux dome roof window installation along with new fitted kitchen, flooring, ceiling etc.
I was extremely happy with the quality and professionalism of his work. His attention to detail and willingness to "go that extra mile" to achieve a first rate job is commendable. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone. (Reviewed May 2019)
This is the second time I've used Paul in 3 months this time it is to repair my main roof I had tiles slipping and fascia board coming loose happy to recommend paul always does a fine job and pleasant to deal with will use again (Reviewed April 2019)
Roof repaired in emergency over extension within 2 days of making urgent phone call with water leaking onto electrics around boiler they came and stopped leak the same day then came back 2 weeks later and did a more permanent re-roofing job completely.
After it was done I had them replace some lead flashing as well overall very pleased if slightly expensive. (Reviewed April 2019)
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. (Reviewed December 2018)
Excellent service in every respect. Good initial advice and constant updates provided. Paul, the proprietor was reliable and exceeded our expectations for commencement and completion of the remedial plastering and maintenance job.
Great value for money. (Reviewed September 2018)
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. (Reviewed September 2018)
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. (Reviewed July 2018)
I used buildform to repair my roof and treat some rising damp they also fitted some gutter and fascias to the repaired roof more than happy with work used them on more than one ocasion now. (Reviewed March 2018)
Paul carried out the replacement of mine and my neighbours car port. He was very efficient and also repaired my neighbours roof and the down pipe of another without making any fuss and at a very reasonable price would definitely recommend him and in fact have to a couple of friends (Reviewed September 2017)
Used Paul for the last 4-5 years trustworthy reliable gets job done no fuss (Reviewed August 2017)
Over the years plaster in a bedroom had cracked round a flue liner. Paul explained why the plaster had cracked and reassured me it was not due to subsidence. Throughout the repair process Paul explained what he was doing and why. He took great care throughout; stressing the importance of slow drying to avoid hairline cracks in the new plaster. After he had finished, he gave telephone advice during the critical drying stage.
Paul's wasn't the cheapest quote, but I think I made the right decision in selecting him to do the work. (Reviewed June 2017)
Paul is professional and someone who you can trust. He will carry out the job with the same care and attention as if it was his own home. All work was carried out on time and to the agreed cost. (Reviewed February 2017)
We are very pleased that we found Paul through our neighbour after recently moving house and discovering numerous jobs needed doing straight away! He has done an excellent job replastering walls, knocking out fireplaces, repairing fascia , exterior rendering Etc He was also very helpful when we had an emergency mains water leak and saved the day!
He has a wealth of experience which includes working with period properties and has a good eye for making suggestions that you may not have thought of. He always arrived early and worked a full day consistently. We will definitely be using him again. (Reviewed December 2016)
The work that Paul has completed on our house has included:
Replacing broken and/or cracked roof tiles and repairing faulty valleys and verges
Completing work on the soffits that was left unfinished by previous builders
Removing the ineffective drainage channels on the driveway and installing a new system. This also involved replacing broken drain pipes
Lifting and re-laying an area of block paving on the driveway that had sunk
In the ensuite bathroom lifting loose floor tiles and then re-laying having prepared the floor to prevent future problems
Boarding a section of the loft to provide increased storage area.
We have found Paul to be a conscientious and skilled craftsman. An example - with the driveway drainage he took care to ensure that where the new system was connected to the existing drains that the original drains were undamaged and if they were then cutting back until sound.
Paul takes photos to show the problem(s) and the completed work where his finished work would not be visible - the drains.
Paul takes pride in his work and he is always willing to provide clear information about how he will undertake a task. With the roof valleys, he proposed two solutions and prices and left the decision to us.
In the future when we need building work done we will be calling on his services. (Reviewed October 2016)

Paul Davey himself carried out the work on both mine and my neighbours property between 16/03/2015 and 27/03/2015. At all times he was helpful, informative, friendly and concientious. Both my neighbour and myself were very pleased with the work when completed. I would recommend Paul to friend and collegues and will certainly use him again myself in the future.

I had a complete refurbishment/replacement bathroom/shower/toilet/tiling. The work carried out has transformed an old bathroom in terraced house into a room that is light, bright and spacious. Paul suggested expanding the shower space which has made the shower a real feature. The works were all carried out to a very high standard and carried in a timely manner. I was consulted at every stage of the process and everything was explained thoroughly to me. I would definitely recommend. (Reviewed February 2015)
