people say the nicest things

We met with Stephen to view a property we had seen on the internet in Dolceaqua. Myself and Ann found him so helpful and gave us an idea of the costs in renovating the apartment. It was so good to deal with someone that speaks English and actually understood our needs. Once we do find a place that's within our budget we will be asking Stephen to sort things out for us.

Terry & Ann Howard, Hertfordshire

We decided to employ English builder services on personal recommendations and have not once regretted our decision. Steve is extremely professional and efficient, he and Giuliano offer an excellent service and sound advice. All work has been completed on time, in budget and of an excellent standard. We could not have managed without them and their assistance in all aspects of setting up our lives in Italy. We could not recommend them more highly

Mr N Dove, Cambridge

After dealing with other Italian Builders it was a relief to find EBS all communication were dealt with rapidly and in a language with understood. Guiliano lead his team with professionalism and an exceptional standard, the work was always completed to deadline and its quality exemplary.

Reynould Fangetto, Amsterdam

Steve and English Builder Service carried out a fantastic job for us at our home last year, we couldn’t speak highly enough of Steve and Giuliano, they arrived when they said they would, carried out the work without any stress for us. They cleaned as they went and made us feel like we could trust them to get on with it whilst we were away.

He kept to his price and promises throughout the job and held our hands from start to finish.

The final result is amazing and we would definitely use Steve and English Builder Services again.

Jay and Helen Tindle, Chester UK

We are exceptionally happy with the work Steve and Guiliano carried out in our place. The job was completed efficiently, on budget, with minimal fuss and in English. They were professional, polite and very tidy. You get a fair price, great advice and excellent work. We plan to live here for many years to come, and we can finally say we have found 'our man'.
