We have never had any problems with our flat before so struggling to know where to start with finding a reliable builder - can anyone recommend a good firm? We are looking for someone who can do an emergency job in our bathroom (leak has caused a load of rot and damp), most of the builders with good reviews on Checkatrade etc seem to be all booked out but there must be someone good who can do a fast response....?

Mme, I can't recommend someone great AND fast. Have just finished a major build and our builders were excellent, but they are booked up until at least Easter next year...

@hettie Would be great to hear their name even if they are booked up.

I would also be keen to know any recommendations, starting an extension build in the spring and need a reliable, but reasonably priced builder (if such a thing exists!)

It's really hard get builders in Bristol. We just waited 10 months for our builder to be free to do a project for us

Hi everyone, I'd love it if someone could provide the details of a tried and tested, reliable builder. I'd like to have some renovation work carried out on our flat next October but I know how quickly they get booked up so I'm trying to plan ahead.

Feel free to pm me for details of a very good builder I have used.

I’d also love any recommendations for the Bristol area. Looking for a new bathroom and kitchen to be fitted as well as knocking through to create a kitchen/diner.
Thanks smile

Am happy to provide a recommendation if you send me a pm but it's likely that they won't be available for the next 6 months possibly longer.

Hi we are doing up our house in Bristol and have found a life saver! You just post on your job and you can see photos and work previously done and reviews from potential tradesmen! Everyone we have picked and used have been ace!

They only do big jobs, but we used C&A Johnson and they were excellent. Really superb
