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.

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.

Steve And Giuliano

When I moved to Italy 8 years ago I was unaware of the many problems I would encounter when renovating a property.

Steve and Giuliano

I found myself on the hunt for a good reliable builder. I searched high and low for a builder that could offer me a high quality of work and who would deliver on his promises. After numerous builders and many disappointments I found Giuliano.

Giuliano is a reliable, honest and an exceptionally skilled worker, familiar with all the local techniques and contacts.

During my time here in Italy I discovered other people who were in a similar position to the one I had been in. I decided to start a business with Giuliano, offering people the same peace of mind and quality of service that I had sought myself.

After working together for several years I like to think we have become a family, achieving a perfect mix of both Italian and English views and values. We not only serve the Italian & French market but also offer a building solution for foreign buyers. We understand the diverse views of different nationalities and are able to communicate them clearly in a common language without costly misunderstandings.

We offer a reputable business covering all aspects of the building & home improvement trade: masonry, roofing, tiling, flooring, painting, plastering, ceilings, kitchen and bathroom refurbishment, full renovations, dry stone and cement walling, cement & resurfacing, wooden decking & much more.

We have enlisted and vetted key sub contractors for major plumbing, electrical and other specific trade work. People who are based along the Italian and French Riviera and work to a standard, which allows our excellent reputation to continue growing.

The sub contractors are all managed and engaged by English Builder Service, therefore reducing your risk.
