Howard and the team have been fantastic for our build, from the moment that we were going through quotes with him we found he and the team quick and responsive.
We under took some major structural changes to our original house taking out a chimney and moving room sizes as well as a loft extension and ground floor extension. This level of work would have taken most teams at least 6 months however Howard’s team had an average of 10 men on the job almost everyday and the work was completed in 20weeks.
When problems arose as they tend too on site when you uncover things they were quick to notify us and good at coming up with efficient solutions. This is true even of the smaller problems.
We had never undertaken any work of this magnitude before and felt even in the most stressful parts for us that we were fully supported by Howard and the team.khosa8, HornseyAugust 2017
We would publicly like to thank and recommend Howard Gold and his team of builders, plumbers, electricians, tilers, floor layers and all at HPS (UK). At all times, they carried out their duties with impressive skill, with total dependability and friendliness. They were also very tidy and courteous – just ask the neighbours. Equally important they kept in touch after the completion of the work to ensure that any last requests on our part were addressed.Sandra and Steven Katz, HendonJuly 2017
Howard came very highly recommended by close friends.
The work to be undertaken was somewhat complex as it involved converting the ground floor of our townhouse, including the integral garage, into living quarters for ageing parents. The garage was reconstructed into a wet room with disabled access and a bedroom. The rooms behind were converted into a kitchen diner and living area, allowing direct access into the garden.
Complications which needed to be overcome included bringing water into the garage as well as drainage and sewerage. The same problems were dealt with in the kitchen area in the back of the house.
All work was carried out to a very high standard and every effort was made to ensure that the most appropriate appliances and fittings were installed to make the lives of our parents as comfortable as possible.
The work was completed in just 5 weeks and any snagging was dealt with as it occurred. All stops were pulled out by Howard and his team to get the job completed without cutting any corners and Howard was always at the end of the phone should anything need to be discussed.
As a whole the project went very smoothly and the team were a pleasure to work with.Jeff & Liz, StanmoreJuly 2017
Howard Gold and team at HPS completed a 13-week full refurbishment and reconfiguration of our two-bed ground floor garden flat. The works included a full rewire and re-plaster. The existing kitchen was stripped to be transformed into the second bedroom, while the old dining room/second bedroom was opened out to create the new kitchen. Plumbing and drainage were moved and added. The built-in wardrobe was turned into a fridge/freezer cavity and cupboard. These were nicely finished in the same materials as the kitchen units for a custom-made look.
The walk-in hall closet, previously used for overflow storage, was transformed into a very stylish wet room.
The oak bedroom floors were well-fitted and the carpenter made and installed new wardrobes to a good standard.
Overall we are pleased with the new spacious and light look of our flat and with the finish of the tiling, plastering and painting works. All boiler works, plumbing and electrics were newly installed, all certified with a completion certificate from building control.
Communication between us was excellent and all costs were transparent and explained well. We would absolutely recommend HPS for any future projectsVera & Frazer. CricklewoodRenovation, Restoration & Refurbishment of a 2 bedroom flat, July 2017
I went for Howard and his team through recommendations on this site when I was let down with another firm at the last moment with my bathroom refurbishment.
Howard was extremely helpful during the estimation visit – outlining ideas which could improve the proposed bathroom project. When the estimation was finalised a few days later, it was concise and clear. I was happy for HPS to go ahead. The project was scheduled for 10 days and started when I was abroad – basically I was entrusting my home to HPS!
Howard helped me to purchase the bathroom supplies from his trusted suppliers (With his useful trade discount). Again, he was great in giving advice what items to purchase.
He reported the progress of the refurbishment every few days with photos which was very reassuring whilst I was abroad. I was back in the last few days of the project and Howard met most mornings to assess the progress of the project to try to snag any problems with his team. With any project this size, there were bound to be a few niggly problems. Howard and his team rectified these very swiftly and without any fuss.
I am extremely pleased with my new bathroom and it a real showcase in my home. It is refreshing to use a trustworthy organisation such as HPS when there are so many cowboy builders out there. I was impressed with Howard for his support and his professionalism of his team. I will certainly use HPS in the future and highly recommend them! Many thanks to Howard and his team!Alexander Man, EdgwareMay 2017
Howard and his team carried out a small internal refurbishment for us. Both Howard and Nelu were full of knowledgeable and innovative proposals for us to consider, which ideas we wouldn’t have come up with on our own. His team always arrived when they said they would. Howard was regularly on site and always available and approachable to provide answers and solutions to our numerous queries.
The quality of workmanship is exemplary and we are delighted with the end product. Although this was a relatively small project, the highest compliment is that Howard and his team treated it with the same care and attention that we are sure he also invests in much larger contracts.
We would unreservedly recommend Howard’s company and have already done so on several occasions.Gill & BarryFebruary 2017
To say Howard and his team went above and beyond would be an understatement. We hired HPS to completely gut our new flat and kit it out with a new kitchen, new bathroom, create an archway through two walls, flip a few doors round and completely block on door off, building a new wall. There was also minor electrics in our brief.
As first time buyers, we were obviously on a very tight budget, and Howard completely understood this and how this affected our needs and requirements. He knew we wanted something lovely to live in, but it wasn’t a forever home and we wouldn’t be spending more than five years in the flat. He also completely understood that time was of the essence, as we were sofa surfing and needed to be able to move in quickly.
Howard and his team got into the flat within 24 hours of completion. Within the first few days it looked like a completely different flat, and less than four weeks later, the job was done. It looks amazing and has totally transformed the space.
HPS and his team will do everything they can to deliver to your budget and time-scale. We weren’t up-sold anything silly, and Howard took us to his trade shops to buy cheap but decent kitchen and bathroom units.
I will 100% be using HPS again for any future works, and would whole heartily recommend them to my friends and family. 10/10 for service and 10/10 for effort. They are most certainly not the cowboy builders we expected.Sophie ChurchMarch 2017
We had a whole flat to gut and Howard and his team did a wonderful job and made the process so easy. They were professional and thoughtful and easy to work with, even accommodating us with small last minute changes which made a big difference to us.
Howard has great contacts in the supply world and helped us through the maze of possibilities for kitchens and bathrooms with ease. We hadn’t expected them to do fitted wardrobes for us, but they whisked some up at the last minute and they are wonderful.
The attention to detail was fabulous and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Would definitely use them again.Carol ShamashDecember 2016
Howard, Nelu and their absolutely superb team performed nothing short of a miracle on our new house. In fact, if it wasn’t for Howard and his team, we wouldn’t have been brave enough to buy our then very run down and dated house.
Howard took complete control with all the different trades we needed. Anything we requested Howard, Nelu and his team provided. We undertook a huge renovation project needing Architect structural engineers, Building control massive steel beams, new plumbing, electrics etc…. and we completely gutted the house. It could have been a very nerve wracking process, but we never once felt stressed due to the excellence of Howard, Nelu and their team of supreme builders.
This job should have taken 5 months, they did it in 10 weeks!!! It was absolutely remarkable what they achieved and we couldn’t be happier with the results.
We felt completely looked after and the finish is pure excellence. We miss the whole team. They were all a joy to work with and I would highly recommend them.
Many thanks Howard, Nelu and the team, you have created a dream home for us!!Bibi & ColinRenovation Project - September 2016
Your first refurbishing projects can be daunting. We had been let down by some contractors who simply showed no interest in the project or were blatantly over promising. We felt that Howard and his team were very pragmatic from day one and helped us through the process with suggestions that highlighted their experience. We also appreciated the fact that they were reachable whenever we had to contact them and that they were proactive in keeping us up to date. Everyone around me was surprised when I told them that the project was completed on time and on budget as that was not their experience with other contractors. We were very satisfied with the result and we are already planning the works for next year which we will do with the same team again.PaulBathroom refurbishment - August 2016
We were very fortunate to have worked with Howard, Nelu and the crew at HPS for the renovation of our flat. They undertook major works, including structural changes, with a hardworking, professional and committed attitude, and very calmly and helpfully dealt with any unexpected issues that rose during the course of the project. It was clear that the team had a wealth of experience in the field, and were always friendly and approachable in using this to aid us in making decisions as the project progressed, as well as being honest, reliable and flexible in regards to changes made to the original plan. The work was very structured, with checkpoints throughout, and the team encouraged us to be as involved as we desired, but also maintained excellent communication while we were away. In the end, they delivered a beautiful flat on time, finished to a very high standard, and were a pleasure to deal with. Many thanks!Cyrus and AmruthaFlat Refurbishment – July 2016
Howard and his team completely refurbished our bathroom. We were very happy with the quality of their work, planning and flexibility, and especially their overall friendly, reliable and professional approach. They listened, came up with ideas, and in particular showed a no-fuss attitude to all the “small” matters at the end that really made a difference to our high level of satisfaction.Ross BaranbyBathroom Refurbishment - Jan 2016
Project was complete refurbishment of 700 sq ft two-bedroom apartment including new kitchen, bathroom, plumbing, electrics, flooring, ceilings, plastering and painting. HPS completed the entire project within 6 weeks, came in on budget, were very adept in working with old Victorian structure and kept god communication with me throughout. Highly recommend.Rowern WongHouse Refurbishment - Dec 2015
Howard and his team did a fantastic job and exceeded every expectation I had for a new bathroom. Thanks to Howards years of experience and vision I now have a bathroom out of this world. Howard and his team worked tirelessly arriving at work punctually everyday. They spent great time and detail to make sure that the results were flawless whilst also respecting my property and cleaning up at every opportunity. Howard has a team of professionals that covers every aspect of a renovation and this made a huge difference rather then having to sub-contract to other professionals. Howard has a amazing list of contacts which we were able to see first hand to ensure that we were sourced the best products and services at great prices. I would like to thank Howard for his dedication and commitment and for his passion which clearly gets displayed in the quaility of his work. Howard is always on hand to make sure that he gets the best out of his workers and that the quality of his work is first class and this was displayed when Howard went on holiday during the project however, he was in daily communication with us and his workers to ensure that the project was running smoothly and we were happy, which is unheard of these days. I would recommend HPS to anyone that wants a reliable, trustworthy company that delivers fantastic results. I have already hired HPS for the next project. Thank you HPS.MazBathroom Refurbishment - Aug 2015
We hired HPS to do an extensive refurbishment of our 1100 sq ft flat in North West London. It was a complex refurbishment needing a strip back to the property’s bare bones and a full internal rebuild. We also extended a roof dormer and created a new roof dormer on the upper floor of the duplex property which was technically challenging as a large portion of the roof on the property had to be removed while the works were taking place during the winter months. This was done with great precision and with no problems. The rest of the build included full plumbing (including a new boiler and radiators to every room) and wiring throughout as well as installing three new bathrooms and a kitchen. HPS kept us updated regularly as to the progress of the build as well as were innovative and efficient in resolving problems when they arose. As our build was planned in lots of detail from the start, we had very few problems along the way. We are very happy with the finish and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for this sort of work to be done in the future.Lee BaliExtensive Flat Refurbishment - Jul 2015
Howard responded quickly and gave a detailed very competitive quote compared to others. The team arrived on time and were hardworking. They were skilled and the standard of finish was excellent. They gave good advice and design ideas when we were unsure. The job slightly overran due to satisfying Building Control regulations. Very happy with the end result it looks great. Howard and his team were easy to work with especially as I have very high expectations ! Would highly recommendCelia DonnellyGarage Conversion - Jul 2015
From our very first meeting I knew we were in safe hands! Mr Gold and his team were incredibly efficient, effective and had excellent ideas! My flat has an awkward lay out, it certainly wasn’t a straightforward build, but Mr Gold and his team tackled each and every obstacle with clarity, speed and skill. I couldn’t be happier with the work they have done and wouldn’t hesitate in using and recommending them.Bibi ShrouroBathroom and Kitchen Refurbishment - Jul 2015
HPS were excellent and I highly recommend them. The team have a strong work ethic and high standards. Howard and his team particularly understand the importance of excellent communication and are highly concerned to make sure the client is happy in every respect. They are continually willing to go ‘above and beyond’ the original conception. One thing I particularly appreciated was their willingness and ability to get involved in the planning and design, as I had no ‘architect’ or ‘designer’ and having their input on how to solve various problems in configuration and design was invaluable. The team itself is hard-working, early-rising, dedicated to results and standards, and courteous and a pleasure to have around. Aspects of this project were more difficult than anticipated and they were exceedingly patient with the inevitable intractable problems. The skills involved in the project were: plumbing, electrical work, tiling, construction of walls, lighting, plastering, decoration, construction of features; and included the installation of a wet room, steam room, whirlpool bath, and other unusual features. They were the best I’ve dealt with and I would happily engage them again or recommend them to my best friend!Gwen Griffith-DicksonComplete Bathroom Refurbishment - Jun 2015
We required informed advice on a residential property purchase in NW6. As the prospective buyer are looking for a builder to attend the site of a major residential renovation asap in order to provide price indications for remedial works suggested in a homebuyer’s survey. Howard provided prompt, informative, creative and courteous advice. Thank you.Rob MarshallRestoration & Refurbishment Advice - May 2015
We hired HPS to renovate and refit our bathroom based on their good reviews. The bathroom was completed as designed. Communication between Howard and his team was very good, Howard was always available to discuss progress. Any issues or fitting mistakes that arose were dealt with quickly. Overall we were happy with HPS.Sam WhiteBathroom Installation - May 2015
