Guy has been very helpful and professional towards his client - prompt correspondence and competitive pricing with excellent service. A+!!
Guy is dedicated to providing an outstanding service level and is extremely patient and client focused. Given the worries we also had over choosing a reputable builder, Guy was also able to recommend a trusted builder contact who was also excellent, hard working and I must say very reasonably priced with an excellent standard of finish and work quality. I would not hesitate to use GBS again for my next renovation project - it just isn't worth taking the very real risk with a different Designer or Builder when Guy and his team score 10/10.
Guy provides a friendly and personal service. He combines this with a high level of technical knowledge. Highly recommended.
