I am delighted with the work Paul has done.
Having been let down by another roofer I contacted Paul with only 2 weeks to go before Christmas. He came round the next day to have a look at the leaking roof. Within 5 days he had the scaffolding up and was fixing the problem. He took a video to show me exactly what the problem was (extensive squirrel damage to chimney flashing and roofing felt as well as penetrating damp) and what needed to be done. When he had finished he explained the repair in detail - a quality job with extra-thick materials to make it more squirrel proof.
Paul was always on time, upfront with the cost and worked very hard despite the weather. He is clearly a very experienced roofing professional who went the extra mile to fix the problem.
(Reviewed January 2024)
Paul was very helpful in advising on our damp issue and what he could do to remedy the problem. He was reliable, punctual and pleasant.... He will also be returning in a couple of months to monitor the work carried out and possibly check other areas if required. (Reviewed January 2024)
Paul did excellent work cheerfully and was able to cope with a number of problems and deal with them. We still have work to be done but he pointed out we needed to wait for good weather rather than crack on and cause problems long term. He will be working on my other house also as he really knows his roofs and gutters.
It has been a pleasure employing him. (Reviewed November 2022)
Paul offers a very professional and friendly service. He's just finished renovating the roof on our 1930s semi-detached house (fixing shot chimney bricks, re-fixing roof tiles, restoring the wooden fascia and soffits, resolving a long-standing guttering problem and tidying up lead-flashing). He's very experienced and finishes his work to a high standard. (Reviewed September 2022)
Paul has completed a range of recent projects for us ranging from fascia / gutter replacement and tile / chimney repairs to current work on re-roofing our outdoor utility area and carrying out much wider refurbishment work that includes integrating an outdoor toilet and replacing flooring and erecting a doorway. Paul's work is always to a very high professional quality and he has extremely extensive and diverse experience around general building / repairs work (in addition to roofing), which is super helpful. Good guy to work with, transparent on costs, good advice and strong attention to detail as the job progresses. Will for sure be continuing to use Paul's services and highly recommend. (Reviewed April 2022)
Paul is hard working and very thorough. He provided feedback and videos throughout the work so I could see the problems. He took pains to explain what was required and why and used quality materials to ensure the work would last (Reviewed August 2021)
I had some tricky brickwork that needed replacing and Paul was excellent. I am very pleased with the end result. (Reviewed July 2021)
Truly excellent all round (Reviewed July 2021)
Highly recommended indeed. Paul is very conscientious and has an eye for detail. He is also a very experienced builder of many years. Trustworthy, friendly, easy to talk too and discuss all aspects of what we needed doing. Great ideas and all his work carried out is absolutely brilliant, could not be better.
Clean and tidy and arrived on time - a great pleasure to have around. His attention to detail is amazing. Thank you Paul. (Reviewed June 2021)
Paul Davey started repointing part of our original cottage back in October 2020 as an emergency then continued on a different section this year.
The work is excellent and Paul explained what was happening every step of the way.
He also did some work on a flat roof and repairing slipped tiles.
Very pleased with all jobs and his care and attention to the surrounding plants and property.
Booked him to look at some internal damp problems. (Reviewed May 2021)
Having asked lots of people about our damp problem and not really getting anywhere I searched our local green directory and found Paul. After the initial conversation he gave me more confidence than anyone I had asked. Paul came round for a no obligation survey. Pretty sure it was debris in the cavity. Two days later and a bucket of debris out of a small corner section feeling confident the problem is solved. Paul even fixed a damaged brick for us. Paul is super knowledgeable and took his time to do a proper job. Would not hesitate to recommend him and would certainly use him again. (Reviewed April 2021)
Paul had previously worked on the house so when the garage roof started leaking I immediately called him for advice. He came to the property on the same day and fixed the leak. He then returned and made more extensive repairs after giving me all the options and associated costs.
The work was first class and the service as usual was brilliant. I would have no hesitation in recommending Paul to anyone. You will be told all your options which will be explained thoroughly and the prices are fair. If in the future I needed more work to be done I would call Paul. (Reviewed April 2021)
Paul has been very helpful and considerate with his work. He has observed social distancing and lockdown rules whilst he was here. We are very pleased with the work he has down and it has been done to a very high standard and completed in line with all the building regulations. We would absolutely recommend Paul to anyone looking to have work done. (Reviewed November 2020)
Exceptional attention to detail and quality of work on what was a complex set of reasons for water leaks and damage in an existing extension. Paul ensured all issues were identified and came up with solutions that were creative, esthetically pleasing - and worked! Not the cheapest route I could have gone down, but well worth it. (Reviewed October 2020)
Paul has now done 2 lots of work on our house and would recommend. He takes a pride in his workmanship is very approachable ensuring that you are happy with all work carried out.
Work includes insulating a roof space over a very cold kitchen.
Refurbished old cast iron gutters fixing leaks as necessary, repaired/replaced lead flashings where required, re-bedded or re-pointed ridge tiles as necessary and replaced broken roof tiles.
(Reviewed September 2020)
Superb and professional from start to finish. All work explained before and after. All completed on time. Any changes to plan were communicated. Standard of work as brilliant. Would 100% recommend to anyone and will definitely use again. (Reviewed July 2020)
Paul has done extensive work on our Edwardian house including re-pointing, emergency roof repair, window fitting, chimney rebuild and general maintenance. From the outset he provided clear informative advice on what was needed, gave accurate estimates, kept us up to date on what he was doing explaining the various methods used and completed the job to a very high degree in which we have complete confidence. He was always reliable in working when he said he would and continued on Saturdays to make the most of the weather. During the virus he was stringent in his safety measures. Paul applies the highest standards to his work and takes a thoroughly professional pride in what he does. His experience is profound and we will use him again. (Reviewed June 2020)
Paul Davey of Buildform has now done two extensive repairs on our property. The first was rectification of previous work that had been poorly carried out by a different tradesman. The second was extensive repairs to gutters, valleys, gable-end verges and chimney flashing. Paul has done a quality job each time, and the roof has since held up perfectly and remained fully watertight in severe weather. Paul has given full quotations and has always advised on options to keep costs within budget, without compromising on quality. If there were any variations to the original quote, these were fully and clearly costed and explained beforehand with photographic evidence or visual demonstration. I have found Paul to be extremely trustworthy, reliable and his work to be of high quality. Recommended. (Reviewed May 2020)
Used Paul Davey of Buildform Construction to repair/renew 3 lead valleys to my main roof, plus renewal of 3 gable end verges, guttering and chimney flashing.
Work completed diligently and reliably, and at all times, Paul kept me fully informed of progress.
Have used Paul a couple of times now and would definitely recommend him. (Reviewed April 2020)
This is the fourth of fifth big project I have used Paul for. In this instance, it was another roofing project where I asked him to put a rubber roof on one of my outbuildings, very similar to the one he installed over my kitchen extension last year.
As expected, I was very satisfied with his standard of work and am happy to recommend him to carry out work on a very varied range of projects. (Reviewed March 2020)
We found our garage roof leaking recently and I contacted Paul for a quote. He replied straight away and came round to look and give us a quote as soon as he could. He was very honest and up front about what he could do and how he was going to do it and got the work done very promptly. An overall excellent service and we will definitely be using his services again. (Reviewed December 2019)
Paul Davey has carried out restoration & repair work to the side wall of my 1807 end terrace house, alongside structural repairs to a flint stone & brick garden wall and damp proofing of the side wall. Paul has communicated very well from the outset and has proved to be efficient, industrious and highly competent. The work has been carried out well within the predicted timescale and to a very high standard, including the use of sand & lime mortar and other heritage style techniques. I am extremely grateful to him for the level of care shown throughout, as are the owners of the neighbouring land (from whose property much of the work to my house had to be carried out).
I would have no hesitation in employing Paul again and would happily recommend his services & skills to others. (Reviewed November 2019)
Paul Davey did several jobs on our property recently and has been brilliant. Nothing has been too much trouble for him. He worked long and hard and left everything tidy for us. Very pleased. (Reviewed August 2019)
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.
(Reviewed June 2019)
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)
