Customer Review
 
We contacted AKA Building Services to investigate a leak around a Velux window in our roof; we have had several attempts at resolving the problem but without success. Andrew attended very promptly and arranged a further visit to identify the problem. AKA arrived on time and found the problem within 15 minutes. They made a temporary repair to prevent any further water damage and provided us with options on how we wanted to proceed. On deciding to replace the Velux window, Andrew provided a full quote for the work and booked the job in. Andrew found a suitable replacement conservation Velux and window replaced the window the following week. They made good all plasterwork, including some damage that we had done in our own attempts to locate the problem, tidied away all rubbish and left the room spotless. Throughout Andrew and his colleague were professional, polite and approachable.
 
Cost: £1600
 

"We were delighted with the service that AKA provided. They were professional and informative and always a pleasure to deal with.
Their work was of a very high standard and they completed it on time and within budget.
They respected our home and cleaned and tidied away all debris that was created."

Sun tunnel installation.
 
Cost: £857
 

"AKA Building Services were very quick to survey for the work and were always informative and friendly. They then came the following week for the installation which we were incredibly impressed with! The installation was very professional and they took a lot of care to finish it off. They even included removing an old light fitting and filling the gap at no extra cost. Things like that go a long way with me. Price was very competitive with excellent turnaround times and friendly service. Would highly reckon AKA and we shall certainty use again for future work where applicable."

Removal of old roof light, installation of a new Velux roof light and making good interior plaster.
 
Cost: £1450
 

"We selected AKA from the Velux web site as they were the fitter for our local area.
We consider ourselves to be very fortunate to have found such an excellent team. At all time Andrew and his colleague were very professional in their approach, extremely helpful and considerate. The finish fo the plastering was superb. They were the cleanest, tidiest team we have ever come across.
We would highly recommend them."

Velux window replaced Roof retiled

"AkA replaced my Velux bathroom window and I was so impressed with the work and their attitude that when part of my roof needed retiling I had no hesitation in asking them to do the job.
Despite the dreadful weather they came on every day it was possible to be on the roof and removed solar panels, refelted and retiled the roof and replaced panels.
They were always cheerful, worked hard and were very professional, leaving everything clean and tidy and taking all rubbish away.
I can't recommend them enough and will certainly use them again in future."

conservatory build and extra groundworks to patio and garden steps.

"I hired AKA build for a conservatory & re-work of existing patio and garden steps. They are a very professional, knowledgeable and friendly team. Arrive on time and are clean & tidy workers. Kept me up to date with the progress and easy to deal with on a daily basis. They completed a first class job at a competitive price and accommodated slight job changes along the way with minimal fuss. I would definately recommend them to friends and family."

AKA Building Services have completed two jobs for my elderly mother: 1. Replacement of garden fencing and gate; 2. Repair of roof.
 
Cost: £1718
 

"AKA Building Services have carried out two separate jobs in relation to my elderly mother's property. The first job was the replacement of fencing in the back garden and the second job was repairs to the roof.
On both occasions I have found Andrew and his team to be reliable, trustworthy and their work has been completed to a high standard. Andrew and his workers are polite, respectful, knowledgeable and professional. I live at a distance from my mother, so it has been important to be able to trust AKA Building Services to carry out the works to a high standard and also to communicate with me in regards to their progress and any arising issues. Andrew kept me informed by email and with photos of work in progress/completed works. I was also able to inspect all works to ensure satisfaction prior to payment.
Andrew is the sort of person you always hope to be able to engage for building works. He is honest and fair, and I have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone. It's a relief these days to find good people, and Andrew is one of those."

AKA Building services have now done two jobs for us. One was replacing a motor on an electric Velux window and the other was the conversion of 4 Velux windows to solar powered and installation of Velux Active.

"We had really struggled to find someone local who could deal with the issues we had with the broken motor, despite using the Velux list of contractors. Velux gave us Andrew's details at AKA and we have been delighted.
From the outset he has been professional, given us quotes and came when he said he would and on time. He works very tidily and also works closely with Velux to produce the best result.
We could not be more delighted."

Installation of 2 large Velux top opening windows and removal of internal wall partitions.
 
Cost: £5000
 

"Andrew and his team are a delight to have in your house. They kept us fully informed throughout the project and involved us in those inevitable decisions that need making as the work progresses. They were very professional, thorough, accommodating and tidy and always turned up when agreed. Once started, they completed the project in the shortest possible time, not working on multiple projects as is common in the building trade. I cannot recommend them too highly."

All aspects of building work including, plan drawings, foundations,drains,brickwork,roofing,windows,electrics,plumbing, kitchen installation and laying of large patio/terrace.

"Sat down with Andrew on 3 or 4 occasions, discussing our project, including design, planning process and the experience/qualifications of Andrew and his team at AKA Building Services. Having received a detailed and competitive quote, we agreed the start date and weather permitting, a timescale for each section of the project. From the outset we knew we had made the right choice, by the excellent time keeping of Andrew and his team, and their strong professional and polite work ethic, which helped avoid the stress we have felt in the past, when we have had work carried out on our home. We were consulted and advised by Andrew and his tradesmen at all times, to ensure the work carried out was meeting our expectations. Where problems arose, as you might expect on a building project of this size, Andrew referred to them as 'snags' and each was dealt with and overcome to our complete satisfaction. On completion we both commented that the finished project was even better than we had imagined and that we would include AKA Building Services when considering any future projects we might have."

The work was completed inside the initially stated timescale.
They were clean and tidy work team.

Job completed to a high standard - very pleased."
