Steve Squibb is the kind of builder you hope to find but so often don’t. He knows his stuff, does what he says he will do and with professionalism and attention to detail. He and his team were polite and friendly and as well as respecting my property, respected that of my neighbours too, conscientiously cleaning up at the end of each day. Highly recommended.

H.W. SW17 | December 2020

Steve and his team did a superb job of renovating my home office. I was really impressed by his knowledge and expertise, and by the way he communicated with me at all stages. The work was of fantastic quality. I would highly recommend him.

M. SW13 | October 2020

Steve and his team carried out a fantastic refurbishment of the exterior of our house. They did a top job on the repair of the render and woodwork which were in a very poor condition. Every day and on completion, they cleaned up leaving the place tidy and clear. They were always on time, worked continuously on this job and kept to a convenient daily schedule. The team were knowledgeable of multiple trades, with years of experience and provided useful advice to us for tackling other jobs. All of the team were friendly and a pleasure to have around. We would recommend them having had such a good experience.

M&N SW13 | September 2020

Steve and team redecorated our house inside and outside. With all his experience, Steve spots everything! He was great at pointing out what could be done, then helping to prioritise what should be done within the constraints of time and budget. The work was carried out to a very high standard and the guys clearly take pride in everything they do. Our house is completely transformed. Thank you!”

Mr.& Mrs H, SW13 | July 2020

I have known Steve Squibbs and his work for around 10 years. His work Is excellent and prices realistic. Importantly he is reliable, if he says he can do the work, he will and within the time scale he says. He is loyal to his customers and a good time keeper. I trust him and his work, which today is so reassuring. I have never had any problem with any work he has done and nothing is too much for him, in fact he is a perfectionist. He has a friendly and cheerful personality.

Steve Squibb re-pointed the rear wall of our house in May 2020. He organised and carried out the work very professionally. He was punctual and handled the interface well with the neighbouring property. Additionally, because the work was carried out during the COVID epidemic, he carried out the responsibilities of  distancing and access restrictions.

Mr. H SW13 | May2020

“Steve was happy to tackle a variety of issues and was extremely helpful in providing practical, high quality and cost effective solutions. He was always realistic about timescales, dealt with matters at short notice if at all possible and was thoroughly reliable. I was lucky to find him and would not hesitate to recommend him for all forms of building projects and property maintenance.”

Steve did a great job refurbishing our shower. He is quite a perfectionist and took time to explain any issues as they came up. He was prompt and very tidy and we would definitely recommend him. Mrs R, SW13


“Steve’s expertise and hard work transformed my house and I’m delighted with the results.  He fixed some serious structural issues [and] restored the brickwork to its Victorian glory.  I was also very pleased with the internal decoration.  Steve is a pleasure to work with.  He takes great trouble to talk through issues and discuss the options.  He is an excellent problem solver and pricing is transparent and great value.  I can’t recommend him highly enough.”

A.G. SW13 |

Priory Lodge School - SW15 |

Steve has done several small carpentry and plumbing jobs for me and he has always been prompt, helpful, and courteous.

Mrs E. - Barnes, SW13 |

My first floor dormer window was damaged and leaking. Steve made time to come round in between other jobs and actually climbed up onto the roof to inspect properly rather than just looking up from the street. He accurately diagnosed the problem and successfully fixed it a few days later. The price was very reasonable. I am very pleased to have found a competent local builder and handyman who does what he says he’ll do when he says he’ll do it. I would certainly use Steve again.

Mr. J - SW15 |

Steve has always been so helpful to us, from giving advice over the phone to fixing many varied issues around our property.  He is honest and reliable and thorough.  We now rent our property out and live away from London but feel confident in asking for Steve’s help and advice for any problems in our abscence as he knows the property well.  We would recommend him.

Just to let you know that I am delighted with your very professional and high standard of work in my bathroom. The new grouting and decorating looks wonderful and your meticulous attention to detail and first class
workmanship have really given the ‘Wow’ factor to what previously was a rather ordinary room. Thank you for putting in so much effort to this job and for being such a pleasant and trustworthy person to have working in the house.

A.M | February 2013

My daughter and I have known Steve for 12 years now since he first did some work when we first moved into a new home. He has done repairs, decoration and landscaped my garden and since employing him to do this work it has never occurred to us to ask anyone else to undertake these kind of tasks. Over the years, he has become a friend as much as our handyman. We’ve always found him prompt, honest and very respectful of our home and ourselves.

Miss W. |

Steve is a very competent all round builder and household repairer who is only too willing to take on that sort of job that all householders get sooner or later but is too big or too difficult to do for themselves. He has been helping the upkeep of the repair of my old father’s home for a good dozen years.
he is reliable, cheerful, presentable and honest and tells you what is happening as he goes along, what more could you ask for.

Dr. M.W. |

Steve has been maintaining my home property and my rented property for a number of years. He is a reliable, likeable and trustworthy person who approaches work tasks thoughtfully and with a view to economy. He is competent, careful and thorough in his work. He charges fair prices.
