My first post, so firstly a big HI to everyone.

Can anyone recommend a reliable builder/joiner/decorator to undertake some internal refurbishment work to include erecting internal stud walls, bathroom tiling and some small plumbling work.

Unfortunately, any builder I have contacted has either not bothered to return calls or turn up for a prearranged viewing of the property. One builder did eventually come to the property after two no shows, but then did not send the estimate and was uncontactable thereafter.

I would really appreciate any recommendations. The property is in the Bermondsey Street area.

Thanks in advance

Otherwise try Phil of InsideOut. He is an excellent builder and does a lot of work in the area. 07812079922. He is SE1 based.

Jac's man (who is actually "mine") is Mariusz, Tel: 07919-037194. He and his team are trained by ME (always good) in terms of work, time keeping, cleanliness etc., and he came to me already with very good decorating and papering skills, plus tiling and so on. He and some of my other chaps got together (they worked for me when I had my building firm) when I retired and regrouped, and they are really excellent. They will NOT overcharge you and are scrupulously honest and decent. If you say Jackie recommended you you will get extra special treatment!
