A satisfied customer

Gilesgate Builders have done extensive roof and brickwork repairs on our 1920’s house. They are our local builder. I have found (I’m a retired tradesman) that they take a pride in their work and do a job I can be proud of too. I recommend them.


Excellent building services

As promised, as soon as the coronavirus lockdown was over, Michael organised the scaffolder and his team replaced two windows and the shiplap cladding on the front of our dormer. All the installation work was done to a high standard and the dormer now looks excellent! The scaffolding was removed within two days of completion of these works and the team then replaced an area of old concrete between the patio and the drive. The new concrete, incorporating a drain, was also done to a high standard. All waste materials were removed daily and the relevant areas left clean and tidy. The works were completed within ten days and within the budget price (including some additional pinning works on the sides of the dormer). The team was professional and pleasant throughout and I would thoroughly recommend them for this sort of work.


Highly recommended

We are very pleased with our new roof. The firm gave us a competitive quote, their work was excellent and took less than a week from start to finish. We would use the firm again.



Outstanding work in fixing our firebreak wall, providing loft insulation, strengthening the loft and a new ladder


They transformed my 1970s bungalow into a 21st century show-home!

The work included full re-wiring, re-plumbing, re-flooring, creating & fitting a new kitchen diner, fitting a new bathroom, loft work, external upgrading & a full redecoration.

They gave me outstanding service and high quality workmanship.

ü Provided estimates & regular invoices so I was in full control.
ü Throughout the 12 weeks, I was fully updated & consulted I was often shown better & cheaper solutions.
ü Every single trade specialist they linked me with was a consummate professional, electrician, tiler, heating engineer, plasterer, carpet fitter, and decorator. People they worked with on a regular basis. Local!!! And first class.
ü Organised the inspections, visits and certification of the building work effortlessly.

I was able to hand over keys, my home was always secure & contents totally safe.

When I requested some additional pointing and tidying up of some patio tiles, the boss reminded me, “I put that patio in for your parents forty years ago!!”
