Guildford Builders Testimonials


I wanted to express my satisfaction with the level of service and workmanship following the plastering job that Nigel of Guildown undertook. His team took extra care in the preparation of the room to ensure that there was no damage and the work was carried to an extremely high standard.

Upon returning to the room after work I found it in a clean and in spotless condition and I could see that the work was carried out with the utmost care and with a high attention to detail. I would have no hesitation to recommend their complete services to anyone looking for an expert to carry out their plastering needs.

Guildown give an expert, personal service and 'go the extra mile'. Once we are finished this project I will definitely use them again.

Alastair Lyon, Woking

We have been consistently delighted with the results from Nigel at Guildown, showing attention to detail and a reliable quality result. We would not hesitate to recommend Guildown.

John Ballington, Guildford

Guildown carried out renovation works to my property including the removal and replacement of 2 ceilings, plastering and decorating as required. They also carried out interior and exterior redecorating.

At all times their work was of an exceptionally high standard. I found them to be punctual, reliable and trustworthy. It was a pleasure having them working at my house and I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Mrs G Longdon, Guildford

Thank you so much for the work you have done on our Kitchen, Dining Room and Bathroom. As we were promised, the workmanship is of a very high standard. We are really pleased with the work you have done for us. Thank you so much for tidying up after each day, making the inevitable disruption minimal.

We were impressed with the way you managed the job, ensuring that all of the trades were on hand when needed. This really helped in preventing the delays we were dreading and ensured you finished the job on time!

Tim and Val Hort, Guildford

I have used the services of Nigel Careys company for 20 years at both Regency Lettings & Property Management and at GA Property Services. Nigel and his team have carried out full refurbishments, major insurance works as well as general property management repairs and redecorations.

Nigel can be relied upon to get work done even on a tight deadline.

I used Guildown for the installation of new heating boiler in November 2013. The work was not straightforward due to the close proximity of neighbouring properties and other issues that arose as the work progressed. Nigel and his team were highly professional in their approach and completed the work quickly and to the highest standards.

Guildown's strength is its customer focus and great communications. This was further underlined when some technical issues arose with the boiler supplied by the manufacturer which were dealt with quickly and with good customer care. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Jeff Taylor, Guildford

Thank you for the very successful total refurbishment carried out on our house in Guildford. This involved both inrernal and external work which was all completed to a very high professional standard. The end result was most impressive and even better than expected.

We appreciated the time taken to discuss the work before and during the build and we were regularly kept informed of progress. You and the team were always courteous and very trustworthy. We appreciated the way you worked with our neighbours to allow work to progress smoothly.

The administration of the project was well organised and efficient, invoicing was prompt and accurate and all necessary certificates were provided for the completed work. We have no hesitation in recommending Guildown and will use you for any future building work. Thank you for all you have done.

Mr and Mrs L Smith, Leatherhead

We had a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom flat that needed a substantial refurbishment. After looking at three quotes from recommended contractors, we decided to go with Nigel Carey and Guildown Limited. This quote seemed more comprehensive and cognisant of our quality/value/money situation than the others. Additionally we needed complete confidence in the contractor and his communication skills as we would not be in Guildford during the work.

This has turned out to be an excellent decision. The work has been delivered on budget to a high standard. The (inevitable) problem solving was imaginative and flexible.  The courtesy and communication from Nigel and his colleagues were pretty exemplary. The team were clean, thorough and friendly. As one would expect in any substantial project, we did hit a few bumps along the road and these were managed professionally and in the spirit of partnership.

I cannot recommend Guildown Ltd more highly for their work on this project.
