    Internal Walls

    We saved for 3 years to be able to afford a full downstairs refurb including a garden refurb. Graeme Broodryk and his team started work in mid oct 2019 and promised to be finished within 6 weeks. Following constant false promises and substandard work which had to be redone numerous times, the project was finally finished in mid march 2020. During this time Graeme had stomach problems, knee problems, his wife, child, and mother in law was sick, his van's clutch went and there were a couple of other excuses. He stopped work for 3 weeks during Christmas and then didn't start until 29th January as his van had been broken into. He is hugely wasteful with materials - our living room floor had to be redone 3 times as it was uneven, so skirting boards were thrown away twice. He did not consult us enough during the kitchen refit so the extractor he ordered was completely wrong- this also ended up in a skip. These are just 2 examples of his wastefulness. When I confronted him about his poor work, he cried and shouted as a way of defending himself. At the time of writing this review (20/04/20) we have still not received all our paperwork even though work was finished over a month ago - excuses include AOL software being down and being ill. After he has left the property we have noticed numerous issues with his work including damp which was "fixed" twice still coming through, flooring not secured and coming loose, holes in the ceiling around light fixtures, plus a few more issues. We have found Graeme to be thoroughly dishonest, work shy and generally a very unpleasant individual. Work with him at your peril!

    GLA Building reply: Dear Gerard, Thank you for your recent feedback. We always aim to deliver a great experience. I am absolutely amazed by your negative review and at total loss for words to be very honest. I've taken my time to respond to your review to reflect true events and full facts. Firstly, I am terribly sorry you feel let down by us. At Gla Building we pride ourselves in our workmanship, service and honesty. You hired us based on these principles and our 100% feedback, this I can remember. After reading your full review, I strongly believe we have gone the extra mile with you to ensure we have listened and worked with you on your project untill the very end with your satisfaction. Whenever you asked us to do extra bits or last minute changes made we were always accommodating. We have truly tried to work with you amid difficult circumstances. We all knew, refurbishing your mid terrace home with a family living in it is at best of times will be a very difficult due to parking issues, logistical material movement issues, material storage plus working around you guys but we prevailed and completed your project. We worked with you on your snaglists too untill we departed from your home. I cleary remember shaking your hand on departure. Our workmanship, I understand Gerard, In areas where you were not entirely happy we worked with you until you were happy and satisfied. I have what's app conversations and photographic evidence detailing this. Our communication has been good. Your refurbishment has not been straight forward due to the extent of the work, changes in construction, materials , logistics, parking etc.... I will hold my hands up and say your refurbishment has been one of our most difficult and hugely challenging experiences we have had work on and sometimes extremely difficult to understand you and your requiresments thus we had to redo some work until you were fully satisfied. I Furthermore agree Yes, some cosmetical materials had to be wasted to ensure you were happy at the end. This is more important to us as honest builders. This is why we go the extra mile for our clients. I really could not re-use the old materials in a new refurbishment it would have look so ugly. The cost of the wasted and new materials were covered by us and not by yourself. Gerard, I furthermore agree with you the project took abit longer than initially anticipated due to some logistical issues, supplier delays, A lot of bad weather, my personal family issues for a few days and Me myself being hospitalised with severe concrete burns to my knees whilst working in the rain to complete your project, I recall. However these are not here or there as your project has been completed now. a "GESTURE OF GOODWILL" was agreed with yourself to cover delays and we done over £4800 free work - free of charge which was not quoted for originally to show you we were sorry. Paperwork, We all know paper work at best of times take time to complete, but you have now received all paperwork, certificates etc. As these were issued by third parties which we had to wait for. To conclude, we always aim to deliver a great experience. We are gutted when we miss the mark with you even though we went the extra mile and apologised with a "Gesture of goodwill" and free work . We will most definitely use the feedback to make us better and to ensure this doesn’t happen again. Yours sincerely.

    Damp Proofing

    Graeme was great, the job was quoted for and completed to my satisfaction within a week which was great. He even offered other bits of advise to help solve my condensation/damp issue. Will keep his number saved for any other jobs I need doing.

    Scope of work: full refurbishment of 5 bedroom house, including installation of new kitchen, shower room, WC, electrics, GCH, LVT flooring throughout and complete re-decoration. Graeme offered a competitive quote for the required work. Not the cheapest but I felt comfortable with him and his team. A deposit was paid upfront and stage payments agreed through to completion. Overall, the work was completed to a good standard and finish. Communication was excellent and Graeme freely offered helpful technical advice and suggestions throughout the project. The budget was slightly exceeded largely due to some changes to the agreed works but I found Graeme and his team to be flexible and accommodating the entire time. The agreed time frame for completion was also slightly exceeded but within an acceptable level given the nature of the works and the additional work items. In summary, Graeme and his team are honest, hard working gentlemen who take pride in their work and treat their customer with the utmost respect. Sadly, these qualities are often missing in the building trade. I have no hesitation in recommending GLA. Given the success and painless experience on this project, they are currently fully refurbishing 2 shower rooms for me and are lined up to fully refurbish a 3 bedroom flat in the coming weeks.

    Bathroom Installation

    I wanted a complete transformation from bathroom to a fabulous wet room and Graeme (GLA) was the perfect ‘can do’ contractor. Graeme has a wealth of expertise and was able to foresee issues and sort them at my project plan stage. From initial meeting through to completion, Graeme has been highly professional and I would not hesitate to recommend him. So much so, I have just appointed him to replace my roof and install a Victorian skylight and refit my kitchen - that really is the highest recommendation.
