Reviews and remarks

Here are a few of our customers’ kind comments:

“I would highly recommend Nico, who has done a considerable amount of work for us over the years. His prices are competitive and his standards are very high. His team are very pleasant and hardworking. The finished job is always excellent.”
Hilary Bennett, N5

“Nico and his team completed a top to bottom 6 bedroom house renovation for me in 2016, including: a new roof, loft conversion, kitchen extension, downstairs remodeling and steel work, new wiring, new plumbing, three new bathrooms and complete redecoration. They did an absolutely incredible job and I could not be happier with them. All his team work so hard and completed the job in less than 5 months, which given the state of the house is nothing short of a miracle. The main thing about Nico that separates him from many builders is just how conscientious he is, he never cuts corners, can’t stand sub-standard or imperfect work and is very respectful of budget. All his team are polite and with a high skill level, and without him there is no way we would have achieved our dream home. Highly recommended.”
James Anderson, N4

“Nico created two new bathrooms for us, refurbished and installed several new windows and decorated inside and out. Nico and his team are friendly, reliable and trustworthy, working to a very high standard – the bathroom tiling is perfection! The dusty work of removing old lath and plaster walls and ceiling was carefully undertaken to minimise disruption to us. Nico’s excellent links with local suppliers helped us greatly when we were choosing showers, fittings, tiles, radiators, etc. At the end of the initial project, we were so pleased with Nico’s work that we immediately asked him to take on additional work – and we would definitely use him again.”
Evelyn Thomas, N7

“Nico has been involved in decorating and renovating our home in North London for the last 10 years. Quite simply, he and his team are outstanding. They perform their work to the highest professional standards. Equally, they are courteous, friendly and incredibly tidy. Nico always gives very competitive quotes and delivers exactly what he promises. Frankly, we now wouldn’t use anyone else. I can thoroughly recommend Nico from the smallest decoration job up to the most complex building work.”
Charlie Davie, N1

“We have used Nico and his team for many years now, and have always been pleased with their work. He is very reliable, his men work hard and are pleasant to have around and clean up at the end of the day. We can thoroughly recommend them.”
Vanni and Angela Treves, N1

“Nico and his team have carried out all manner of work on our house and we’ve never had better workmen. Nico himself is a skilled carpenter as well as being able to turn his hand to virtually all other trades. He built us a great ceiling high bookshelf, constructed a new shower area in our bathroom, replaced rotten windows and decorated inside and out. Best of all he is always willing to come back to sort out any little problems. His team are polite and easy to have in the house. They come when they say they are going to come and stay for as long as necessary. We couldn’t recommend them all highly enough.”
Mark and Antonia Easton, N1

“After hiring Nico and his team to take our home from the mid 70s into the present day, we can’t imagine working with anyone else again. Calm, swift, endlessly helpful and with the perfectionist’s eye for detail, Nico betrays none of the builder stereotypes. He’s always on time, he understands what we want, and his team are polite and incredibly hard working. The finished product is far better than we could have imagined, and his quote was incredibly competitive. Little wonder he’s become Islington’s builder of choice.”
Will Anderson, N1

“We had an excellent experience with Nico and his team. Nico is very creative when it comes to problem solving and, given Nico’s obvious knowledge and experience of the area, we always felt we were in safe hands. The guys on his team are very courteous and always tidied up after themselves. They also work incredibly hard and have a real pride in their work. Nico is extremely responsive and even came out on a Sunday to fix an emergency leak! Excellent value for money, we will definitely be using Nico again in the future and I would wholeheartedly recommend Nico to others.”
Richard Essex, N1

“Nico and his team have done numerous jobs for us over the past 7/8 years. Having been recommended by a neighbour as a decorator, Nico has decorated inside and out, while we are home and while away on holiday, done plumbing and electrical work and some building work. He is totally reliable and trustworthy and a good communicator. He comes when he says he will, fits in small emergencies, sticks to his estimates and makes modest charges for necessary add-ons. He produces work of a high standard and makes sensible, practical recommendations when appropriate, including cost conscious solutions. He has become part of the firmament of Highbury and I am very happy to recommend him and his team. They are nice people to deal with and to have about the house. Nico himself takes all the strain out of maintaining a 150-year old property for me.”
Barry, N5

“Nico is an excellent painter and decorator who is very thorough, pays attention to detail and leaves the place tidy. We’ve always been very pleased with the work he has done on our house. He has come round to fix things at very short notice on a number of occasions and is always willing to help if he can.”
Sam and Tess Neaman, N5

“This summer was particularly wet, which really exacerbated some existing problems with our roof. Many slates needed replacing and as Nico discovered, slates were required where they didn’t exist to start with. He was quick to come and have a look, flexible about his availability and more explorative than any surveyor ever was. I promptly received a very reasonable quote. When he came to do the roof replacement job in August, Nico and his team were most professional. They managed to erect scaffolding where we hadn’t thought possible despite tricky access points, and were clean and efficient. They worked hard over a ten day period to get the job completed to spec and left no mess, always respecting our personal space. The end product was a new slate roof, finished very nicely including some pointing and guttering replaced/added. It’s hard to find people these days who seem to go the extra mile and Nico was that. I will certainly use him again and have recommended him to my friends.”
