PW solutions worked for us from December 2012 to May 2013. The work involved a complete refurbishment of a tired 1920’s property and also a loft conversion.
The house started life as a 5 bedroomed, 3 bathroomed property and is now a 5000 square foot property with 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. Many internal walls were either removed or relocated. Numerous steels were inserted to cater for the structural changes. The work involved a completely new plumbing system including mega-flows, radiators, underfloor heating and all new pipework. A major overhaul of the electrics was also carried out. The whole house was re-plastered with new doors, architraves and skirtings thoughout. A new solid oak floor was installed in the dining hall and vintage flagstones to the kitchen, family room, conservatory, playroom, utility and back hallway. All new bathrooms were installed with new tiling.
The kitchen was fitted by Fired Earth but PWS provided all the plumbing and electrics. The whole house was redecorated internally and externally. New stairs from the ground floor and also up to the new second floor were installed. The loft conversion provided two new bedrooms and a shared bathroom. A new Chesneys fireplace was installed in the drawing room. A new porch/veranda was also built to enhance the front.
Paul is an extremely likable and very capable builder. He has an enormously positive ‘can-do’ attitude which is extremely refreshing. He likes to do the job right and doesn’t cut corners.
The work ethic of him and his team cannot be faulted. He is an honest individual and one who I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or use again myself. His team of hand-picked people reflect his own abilities and attitude. Our project was on a tight timeline as we had to vacate our rental property by May. Paul was undaunted by this and he and his team worked weekends (including the whole of the Easter weekend) and often late into the night to get the job done. He was always looking for ways to save us money and it truly felt like we were all one team with one goal.
The standard of the finish he has achieved speaks for itself but has been commented on by the building inspector from Chiltern Borough Council and also Hamptons and Knight Franks estate agents who valued the property for us after the work was completed. Their valuation increased the value of the property by 35%.

PW Solutions have carried out several large contracts for us over the last 10yrs including a double storey extension to our previous property which had a crucial deadline due to our 3rd daughter’s birth, which I am pleased to say was finished with 2 weeks to spare.
Paul also carried out extensive works to my care home, which had to follow a strict schedule, tight budgets and carry out the works in a very sympathetic and discreet manner. Due to the residents still living in the home there were massive health and safety issues, I can honestly say the day to day running of the home, the safety and residents/staff and also meeting all requirements from CQC and Social services were never compromised due to the professionalism, dedication and fantastic communication from Paul and every member of his team.
PW Solutions worked as our main contractor with us to carry out the renovation to our grade 2 listed farmhouse. This was a probably a 2yr job squeezed in to 6 month job. The standard of work never dropped even due to the pressure applied from us, I think Paul even thrives on it, his dedication and tenacity shone through once again. My wife and I including the children visited site almost on a daily basis, Paul even came in on his day off to erect a children’s play area, which our girls were over the moon with. That’s just one example of many of Paul making our lives just that little bit easier of what can be a very stressful time. Yet again the job was completed on time with no major hiccups along the way.
I would highly recommend PW Solutions without reservation to anyone contemplating undertaking a building project, not only are they an extremely professional company but Paul is honest, hardworking, completely transparent, has an exceptional attention to detail and will do everything within his powers to complete the job on time, within budget and to a very high standard.
