Replacement of two Velux windows which were over 27 years old. The price below is the price of the new windows and installation costs.
 
Cost: £2136
 

"Andrew Konieczny of AKA Building Services and his two men team did an excellent professional job and worked tirelessly throughout the day to complete the work, which was more complicated than I had anticipated. They went to a great deal of trouble to provide dust sheets where they were working and passing through and they did a thorough job of cleaning d outside before they left. I was pleased to find that there was hardly any disturbance to the interior surroundings of the windows and no further re-decorating was necessary.

When the work had been completed Andrew took time to show me the work they had done and how to use the windows and look after them.

I was pleased that the team all wore face masks to prevent Covid when talking to me and when passing in and out of the house."

Replacement of two large old Velux Sky Light Windows

"It was the most hassle free experience from beginning to completion I ever had of getting organised to replace our leaky large Velux Sky light Windows.
I got a quick quotation from Velux Window Ltd through their Web site and then the firm put us in touch with one of their certified installers. Installation fee was agreed.
The Velux certified Installer (AKA building Services from Burnley) contacted us a couple of days later to arrange for an installation date.
Andrew of AKA building Service confirmed the date 2 days before the installation date by phone. The Team arrived promptly to start work in the morning. Andrew and his two helpers were most courteous, tidy, helpful and great professionalism in their work.
I would definitely recommend AKA Building Service to anyone who need similar work done to their home or premises"

Repair and replacement of the solar kit on bedroom Velux window.
 
Cost: £360
 

"Andrew returned my call very promptly and asked all about the problems we were having with the window. He called round the next day to assess the problem.
Advised us it needed the solar kit replacing. He ordered the part and fitted it as soon as it arrived at the suppliers. The price was exactly as discussed.

Andrew was very knowledgable, professional and helpful. He was honest and trustworthy and I would recommend his company and service to anyone.

Thank you very much, Andrew went out of his way to help fix the problem."

Installation of 2 new Velux Windows to replace old windows in dormer room, and installation of 1 Velux sun-tunnel in the music room to give light over the piano. Velux gave me the details of 3 registered firms who carried out their work in the area. This firm responded promptly and gave me an estimate and made an advisory visit. The second firm responded but could not make an advisory visit for 6 weeks. The third firm did mot respond, until some time later, by which time I had made my choice.
 
Cost: £2775
 

"Excellent work.

All services were carried out on time, and with great care to my home, so that nothing was disturbed,and all debris and rubbish was removed. The installers were very professional, and considerate,and consulted me at all points about the finer details of their work.

It is good to find a firm who take pride in the quality of their work, and to whom you are happy to give access to your home.
I would be happy to recommend them.

New kitchen fitted. Kitchen ordered from Howdens and Andrew and team helped us make necessary adjustments to our plan. Work was done on time and to a very satifactory high standard.

"Andrew and team are professional, efficient and friendly. We had a sun tunnel fitted in our kitchen last year and when we decided to have a new kitchen installed they were our first choice to do the job. Their work is to a very high standard and everything is left clean and tidy afterwards. We certainly have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone needing their services."

Supply and fit 2 off Velux sun tunnels + clean and repoint 2 off roof valleys
 
Cost: £1500
 

"AKA Building services from start to finish is the best contracting company that I have ever dealt with all my domestic and working life. I had to ask for job quotes from various contractors many times, different trades and supervise work in my latter years of employment.

AKA building services I would rate as the best contractor out of all the many contractors I had used both at home and my place of work.

From the intial phone call to AKA building services asking for a home visit, which was prompt the next day, it was explained in detail and in a very courteous and trustying manner.

A detailed work quote soon followed, outlining all materials and cost.
Work was scheduled in a timely manner.

On the day of installation and valley repoint, AKA building services arrived promptly at the time agreed and explaned all aspects of the work to be carried out.They also used dust sheets to cover all exposed walking areas without being asked to do so.

After the works were completed I was shown how the sun tunnel difusser could be taken off for cleaning if needed and the loft sun tunnel's how they were installed.

They left the inside and outside of the property spotlessly clean after completion of work.

AKA building services even stayed after completion 20 mins or so, to make sure everthing was up to there very high standards very pleased with that.

I received my AKA building services paid in full invoice soon after with AKA building services 3year warranty for there workmanship.

The extra mile from AKA building services was a follow up phone call a week later of completion of work, asking if we were happy with all his work. I have never had a follow up phone call or visit from any other contractor, very pleased about that.

It shows that AKA crea"

Install new velux window and blind
 
Cost: £1966
 

"We have had a lot of building work carried out at our house and due to bad previous experiences I was dreading having the window replaced. All I can say is AKA Building Services have restored my faith in tradesmen! From the beginning Andrew was excellent, he responded to our enquiry promptly, came to quote for the job when he said he would and was so polite and professional. He completed the work exactly on the day he said he would come and did an absolute first class job. He and his men were so polite, tidy, and really knew what they were doing. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Fantastic job xx"

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."
