Testimonials

We have had the pleasure of working with some fantastic clients, see what they have to say about us!

Julian did a lot of work for us in the spring of 2014 during the building of three en-suite bathrooms. The work was of a very high standard, carried out with a minimum of fuss and we were extremely pleased with the results. He also has the un-canny knack of calmly finding his way around any un- foreseen problems that may arise. He also removed an old fireplace and installed a log burner for us. I would highly recommend his work to anyone.

CRISIS, WHAT CRISIS? Julian has provided excellent services for our holiday home for the last four years and has always kept the property spick and span. Crises are no problem either! Issues with the septic tank (twice), roofing and hornets have all been dealt with quickly and efficiently. Many thanks - keep up the good work!

In March 2014 we were let down by the firm, who the architect handling our kitchen extension, had contracted to screed our kitchen floor of approx 25 sq metres and then tile it. Julian undertook the tiling job at a competitive rate and I ended up with a first rate product made even better by the addition of underfloor heating. I was so impressed I asked him to tile the kitchen walls and again we are very happy with the end result. Julian is reliable, hard working, professional and a genuinely nice bloke. I have no hesitation or concerns in recommending him to anyone needing a building project undertaken.

We have dealt with Gale Force Property Services for over four years, during which time they have provided us with excellent support in relation to our property and garden maintenance, building work and, most importantly for us the knowledge that we have someone trustworthy and efficient that we can rely on when we are not at the house. In particular the recent work undertaken with us, including the laying of the electric underfloor heating, tile laying and grouting on the ground floor has been very successful and we are very pleased with the result. We are very happy to recommend Gale Force Property Services.

We are more than happy to write a reference for Julian Evans who has managed and carried out a number of building projects at our property in France. He has a wide range of skills that he is able to put to good use. The first job that Julian did for us was to plumb in two new sinks, one in the kitchen & one in the bathroom, Julian re modelled the entrance to our barn / garage creating beautiful, cleverly constructed bespoke wooden doors that open to allow either a large vehicle to enter or a person through a smaller insert door. The next job that we asked Julian to consider was creating a new bathroom in a very small space on a landing area. We initially thought that this would be an impossible task but Julian was able to plan out the area to make a workable and delightful bathroom. We cannot emphasis that the planning required to complete this room was outstanding. Julian completed the task from creating the walls, to plumbing in the fixtures, wiring in the lighting and fan as well as completely tiling the room to an exceptional finish, he even managed to create more storage both in the bathroom and in the void that was created in the landing area. From the landing the new room looked as if it had always been there. The latest job that Julian has done for us was to create a new fireplace in the lounge. From an uninteresting alcove he has created a stunning fire place complete with log burner and lighting. He sourced the materials for us and completed the job with speed and efficiency. Julian listened very carefully to our ideas and then has gone on to improve them in a way that we had not initially thought possible. He works very hard and likes to complete jobs within the stated time frame and always at a very fair price. We can highly recommend Julian as someone who has fantastic skills and great vision.
