Let our previous and existing clients do the talking

All too often a builder is hired and then, for various reasons, it all goes horribly wrong and the poor homeowner has to bring in another builder to sort out the mess. Emily from Chiswick describes her experience:

“I hired Emil and his team on recommendation from two other local residents who I believe to have exacting standards after my first builders proved incompetent. Hammerhead came in and not only remedied the previous work, completed the project to a very high standard but also stuck to the budget and deadline. Throughout the job the whole team were very personable, friendly and trustworthy. They worked extremely hard, cleanly and liaised well with the architects and structural engineers to ensure a smooth and timely build process.

Emil was on site almost every day, answered emails and phone calls promptly and it felt very much like a partnership. Being my first build project, I'm sure I was frustrating to deal with at times, but Emil was always patient and helpful, discussing matters thoroughly and giving his expertise so that I was happy that the decisions we made were right. The only time something wasn't quite right (my downstairs loo wasn't quite big enough) - he rectified it immediately even though I'm sure it took more effort than he told me.

The work was completed to a very high standard and even my neighbours who are in international building were impressed with their work and work ethic. Since finishing the build, he has always remedied any snagging promptly and efficiently.”

A similar tale of woe and timely rescue by Emil’s team is told by Simon of Haart Estate Agents:

“Emil, I just wanted to thank you and your amazing team at Hammerhead for rescuing us from the disaster that the previous builder left behind. I was impressed by your honesty, efficiency and value for money.

However, what made the difference was the fact that you were very approachable, your attention to detail and even improved our design with your ideas and solutions to problems, no mean feat considering my wife is an architect.

The regular feedback on progress and discussion on the upcoming works allowed us to manage our daily life and the quality of your work far exceeded our expectations. We are over the moon with our extension and refurbished home. I will be telling all my friends and clients about you. Thank you.”

Another complete home refurbishment is described by Lizzie and Tim:

“Many thanks for the great job you did on our house. You transformed it, installing a hot water system, central heating and safe electrics as well as redoing 3 bathrooms and re-plastering the entire house. We will continue to recommend you to all our friends and look forward to working with you again soon.”

And in a similar vein Frederike from Tooting, London says:

“Emil was recommended to us by some friends shortly after buying an Edwardian property that needed complete renovation. We were unlucky with a previous builder so when we contacted Emil we were on the cautious side. We immediately realised that Emil and his team knew exactly what they were doing. Their commitment to the project, their hard work and professionalism is turning the building site into our soon to be family home. Emil has taken everything we asked for on board and we appreciate his open-mindedness to all our demands. In addition, his team is extremely clean, friendly and polite. The workplace and site is always left spotless. We would definitely recommend 'Hammerhead' to anyone who needs building work to be done and we will surely use them again in the near future when doing our loft extension."

But Hammerhead’s not just there for big contracts and troubleshooting, they undertake smaller projects with equal dedication and professionalism. Christian, University Lecturer explains:

“I was very happy with the bathroom that Hammerhead installed for me. They are friendly, reliable and efficient.”

A residential refurbishment led Alix & Nick to say:

“We were really pleased with the work done by Emil and his team, and were particularly impressed by their speed and efficiency throughout, as well as their dedication to doing a good job. Emil kept us well informed of progress and we felt that we were able to have input throughout which helped us to achieve the finished product that we wanted."
