A-Z refurbished our new period property creating a kitchen/diner (by removing a wall with a chimney breast), utility room and toilet downstairs, and 3 bedrooms and an en-suite shower room upstairs. Due to the condition of the property every room had to be stripped back to the bricks but Nicholas and his team were able to turn what looked like a warzone into a masterpiece.
We had a scary moment when Nicholas informed us that due to previous water damage hidden from view but exposed due to the work that was being done, the back wall of the house could have collapsed. Fortunately, due to his skill he came up with an ingenious solution thereby averting what could have been a catastrophe.
Nicholas was extremely meticulous and we were amazed on his final day when he checked every door and drawer of the units in the kitchen to ensure that they were working as they should!
we are so thankful that we found a builder we could trust in Nicholas and we can’t recommend him enough.
Work was carried out to the agreed schedule to a high degree of satisfaction. Problems encountered during the work were explained clearly by Nicholas Olteanu and the solution to the problem agreed between us. A-Z staff were polite at all times and found to be punctual every day working hard between 08.00hrs and 18.00hrs for five and a half days per week. I have no hesitation in recommending A-Z Home Improvements and welcomed the good working relationship that was established between myself and Nicholas Olteanu.
We appointed A-Z to carry out a loft conversion and two storey side extension, as well as some internal renovation and new rear deck. From the initial meeting Nicholas was very helpful and really took an interest helping finalise the plans before we started work. He employs all his own staff and we had the same team all the way through the build. They are extremely hard working and very reliable, whilst respecting that our family were still living at the house during the works. Nicholas was fully involved all the way through and he has a high attention to detail. The overall build was finished 1 week earlier than planned to a very high quality finish. We are extremely pleased with every aspect of the build and have recommended A-Z to a number of friends and are already planning to get Nicholas and his team back for further works.
In 2009 we wanted a major over-hall of our home: an internal wall & chimney breast removed, new kitchen & bathroom fitted, new doors fitted, floors sanded, some plumbing & electrical work & decorating throughout. After extensive research we decided to ask Nicholas to do the whole job. We signed a contract with him and the work began on time. Nicholas & his team worked six days a week and completed all the work on time and on budget and to a brilliant standard. We were very pleased and so later asked Nicholas to install an extensive patio area for us. This was a particularly difficult job because of a lack of access but Nicholas and his team managed to find ways of overcoming all the challenges and doing an outstanding job. Six years later our house still looks great and A-Z's work has really stood the test of time. Since then family & friends have had Nicholas work for them and everyone has been very satisfied. We have no hesitation in recommending Nicholas and his team.
A-Z Home Improvements built a large rear extension for our friends in Wimbledon and came highly recommended. We have a three bedroom house and we asked Nicholas to build rear and side extensions, a single dormer loft conversion with Juliet balcony and then completely renovate the property. It's difficult to describe our experience with this guys and not seem to be exaggerating a bit. Nicholas treated our home like his own and he treated us like we were his own family; awesome. And good God, they are fast; they work ten hours a day, six days a week and the progress of the work is amazing. The quality of the end product? You really have to see it to believe it. It was a real joy to work with Nicholas and his lovely team. They completed the project within the time frame and budget agreed and Nicholas has been calling us from time to time to make sure that everything is OK. Yes, this is a very unique business that offers a very unique, personal service. We can't recommend them enough.
Efficient, timely, good work ethic, great standard of work
Nicholas & his team completed my project which consisted of substantial two storey L shape extension, Loft conversion,creation of five x 1 bed self-contained flats and 1 x 2 beds self-contained flat, fitted kitchens, electricals, plumbing, tiling, painting, patios all round. It was a rather complex development which required an experienced and professional builder. It was a great comfort having the support of Nicholas to overcome many unforeseen challenges. From the beginning to the end of the project, this construction team delivered high standard of workmanship and paid particular attention to detail. They were polite, respectful, tidy and pleasant. He would always consult before he would proceed with any extra work. He was always positive in his approach and proud of his work. He showed most of the good qualities one would hope from a respectable builder. As managing director of my Company I would have no hesitation to recommend Nicholas and his team to his prospective clients.
Our complicated home improvement project, teamed with a complete electrical re-wire, was handled with care and expertise by A-Z Home Improvements. The level of workmanship was very good and the project was managed with a can-do attitude when any unforeseen complications or requirements arose. The end was result matched expectation and we are very pleased. Having used A-Z Home Improvements on two different occasions now, we know that their aftercare is also exceptional.
We were worried about choosing the right builders, as heard bad experiences. The team were focused and hard working (8-6 Mon to Fri and Sat am 8-1). We were included in all discussions. Nicolas gave his views whenever required, given his experience. His attention to detail meant it was as if he was working on his own home, which gave us comfort. Work was completed to a very high standard. Team worked extremely hard, completing the work before expected. They left the drive and area they worked in clean. We missed their presence when they left, a lovely bunch. We definitely recommend A-Z Builders.
After a recommendation from a friend, Nicholas and his team created a new kitchen diner, laundry room and wc for us in 2013. We were really impressed with their work ethic (they worked 6 days a week to ensure the job was completed within schedule) and the standard of their finish. The team was reliable, efficient and very friendly with our children. They also made sure noise and mess was kept to a minimum and we didn't start off on the wrong foot with our new neighbours! We had a gas leak a few months later which was probably not connected to their work but Nicholas immediately came and remedied the problem and wouldn't accept any payment. He also straightaway fixed another snagging issue with the dishwasher later still. We were very happy with the company and have already recommended them to local friends
He is excellent. I already recommended him.
A-Z completed a double storey extension for me in 2018, installing a new kitchen and 2 bathrooms. Nicholas and his team are fantastic. They work so hard, completing my extension on time (actually a bit quicker) and to a very high standard. There were no hidden extras - the quote is what I paid. Nicholas is on site every day and always contactable to answer questions and offer advice, based on his many years experience. With the number of decisions you have to make, being given options and pros and otherwise I found hugely helpful. Nicholas checks every detail to ensure the client gets exactly the room/s they picture. The project was as stress-free as it could possibly have been. When I decided to embark on phase 2 of my house refurbishment a few months after the extension, I wouldn't have asked anyone else to do it, and Nicholas and his team did a great job for me again. I would be very happy to recommend A-Z - thank you for my lovely new home!
Nicholas and his team built our extension, loft conversion and refurbished our whole house in 5,5 months (before the agreed deadline). We are overall extremely happy with the outputs and the quality. A very committed builder who worked to an excellent standard and at times went over and beyond. He also gave us some good ideas and suggestions. His team is very well balanced including highly skilled members, they were on site 5 days a week 8-6pm and Sat 8-1pm working extremely hard. Nicholas is a great project manager who is very independent and needed minimum involvement from us.
Excellent service, from the beginning with obtaining a quote all the way through to the last finishing touches. Very hard working team working 8am-6pm weekdays and 8am-1pm on a Saturday. Never leaving the site, bringing their lunch with them. Not like some builders who disappear for 2 hours for lunch break! Quoted 8 weeks and were pretty much bang on, which was unbelievable considering the amount of work. This is mainly due to the fact that they commit to the job by putting enough men on site.
Friendly, professional and took into consideration the impact that the work was having on the family. Did not cut corners and assured if there was any problems then he was available at any time of day or night to deal with anything.
It is very stressful going through extensions and building work on your home and it requires you to be motivated and to inspect the build as it develops. Nicholas is the perfect person to do this with, and his attention to perfection admirable.
I had my house extended recently (May to July 2015).
Neculai was slick and enthousiastic, the team excellent. The work was complex as it involved extending the house back and sidewards meaning the main back and side walls had to be changed. Throughout the work, there needed to be excellent understanding between us (client) and the manager alongsisde his team. Neculai was all the time reassuring and provided expertise and more importantly good easy to understand explanation about stages of the building. There was time pressure as we had to work to be completed on schedule (8 weeks) as we were expecting a disabled visitor from the USA and we would neither cancel the trip nor halt the building. Neculai made sure the schedule was adhered to by tirelessly working and supervising the work. We are proud of our kitchen and extension. Neculai has made follow up calls and has visited to make sure all is going well.
Brilliant team. They always go an extra mile to provide an outstanding servuce
Nicholas and his team are fantastic. They work so hard, completing my extension on time (actually early) and to a very high standard. There were no hidden extras - the quote is what I paid. Nicholas is on site daily and always contactable to answer questions and offer advice, based on his years of experience. With the number of decisions you have to make, being given options and pros and otherwise is so helpful. Nicholas checks every detail to ensure you get exactly the room/s you picture. The project was as stress-free as it could possibly have been. I would very happily recommend A-Z.
Nicholas and his team at A-Z carried out a complete kitchen refurbishment for me in 2010. He was the first builder who I had approached who had a 'can do' attitude and provided me with lots of creative ideas as to how best to utilise the, rather awkward, room. Nicholas is a perfectionist and the standard of work provided by the company is of the highest quality. All the staff are punctual, polite, hardworking (6 days a week) and share the same attention to detail. I was kept up to date with progress and any queries were dealt with quickly and professionally. I was so pleased with the initial project that I have since used A-Z on at least 3 more occasions, both inside and outside my house, and each time the work has been completed with the same high quality of workmanship that so impressed me initially - and again within the timeframe and on budget. Nicholas' customer service is excellent and I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a builder.
Hardworking , very friendly , got the work done on time and on budget
