We hired Marcel to modernise a three bedroom semi after a recommendation from a colleague. We had a lengthy list of specific wants and desires, without any real knowledge of how to make our dream come to life. We were a little apprehensive after some unpleasant experience with other builders in our previous house. We can honestly say that from our first meeting with Marcel we were thoroughly impressed with the quality of his workmanship, professionalism and integrity. The list of work he done for us include repartition of downstairs rooms and changing the lay out, fitting a new kitchen and installing all appliances, replaster all walls, refit a new bathroom, create a new toilet downstairs, fit floorings and ceiling including under floor heating for the kitchen. It was a real pleasure having the opportunity to work with Marcel. He is a very caring and dedicated individual whose work is nothing less than outstanding. As both of us are working and with a young family we were fortunate to have him as a builder we could rely on. We would be pleased to answer any queries you have and you can get our contact details from Marcel.

Marcel installed a completely new bathroom for us at the end of 2013. We are thrilled with it and would like to recommend his work to anyone needing this sort of job to be carried out to the highest standards and at a good price. He came highly recommended to us and we now know why. As well as being highly experienced in all the different aspects of such work - plumbing, plastering, related electrics, related heating, decorating, tiling, fitting etc - he has a very good eye for the aesthetics and kept coming up with great ideas to make what we had chosen look even better. Fortunately for us, Marcel is also very resourceful. He encountered many problems with our old walls and with the units we had chosen. He solved all these and often turned the problems into opportunities to make the finished product even better. Best of all, we enjoyed having Marcel and his team in our home. They were amazingly hard-working and also kept their good humour and professionalism whatever the problems our bathroom threw at them. We will be asking them back in 2014 to decorate large and awkward areas of our house. We are happy to talk to anyone wanting more information over the phone or who would like to see the finished work.

In October2013, Marcel carried out some work for me. He redecorated our living room, installed a downstairs toilet and basin (including the painting, radiator and tiling etc) and created a cupboard under the stairs. Marcel carried out the work to a very high standard. If any issues came up through the job he would always suggest a solution, which was great and gave me confidence that my house was in safe hands. He does not cut corners, but at the same time he is very careful with the materials that he uses and he makes sure there is no wastage and therefore no extra cost. He always came early and hardly stopped throughout the day, in order for the work to be completed as quickly as possible with literally no disruption to us. I felt totally confident that Marcel knew what he was doing and that I did not have to worry about anything, unlike some builders I have had in the past. He went out of his way to make sure that the completed work looked exactly how I wanted it. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. In fact I shall be having him back to do more work for me very soon.

We first used Marcel when we bought our house in 2012. He built some cupboards and shelving to an excellent standard. We have used him again since when he has helped us restore our hardwood windows to a much better standard, as well as a number of other small jobs. He is hardworking, trustworthy, diligent, and in my experience carries his work out to a high standard. We would recommend him without reservation.

I felt that I had to write to you and say Thank You for my lovely bathroom. I also want to thank you for the excellent work you & your partners carried out, the long hours put in & for the clean & efficient way the work was carried out. I have had no complaints, only pure satisfaction in all that you have done.If you wish to use this letter as a recommendation please do so with my very best wishes and should you wish to give my telephone number as a reference I have no objection.
Mrs. L.Halliday - Rickmansworth
I have known Marcel since 2006, during which time he has carried out a variety of building, maintenance and decorations works on my house. Marcel is a skilled man who is impressively diligent and reliable. I am happy to confirm that he is wholly trustworthy and unfailingly conscientious. I anticipate being a very satisfied customer of his for many years to come.

I would, without reservation, recommend Ideal Place Construction for any work around the home. From assessing the job to its completion, Marcel has been exceptionally thorough and painstaking in his attention to detail. Marcel carried out a number of jobs, including tiling and the repair of warped windows, at my flat. All of the work was carried out to a very high standard and the work area was immaculately left at the end of the day. As a female living on my own I always felt comfortable having Marcel and his team around the flat and I can happily say that they were the least intrusive tradesmen I have ever encountered.
Ms. N.Dalby - Northwood
I have known Marcel since 2005 when he built a new kitchen for me in my home totally from scratch. he worked for me for approximately two weeks at that time but has since helped me with other work on numerous occasions. I have always found him to be honest, reliable, hard working, conscientious and courteous.
Ms. B.Cooper - Hatch End
We know Marcel since August 2000 as a building contractor. He undertook major renovation in our home in Edgware, Middlesex. The work that was carried out included: removal of chimney stacks, re-plastering, flooring, installation of 2 new bathroom suites, tiling, electrical and plumbing work. The workmanship was to a high standard and to a tight deadline. Since this time, we have used his services over and over again and have been extremely satisfied with the results. The work that he has done over the years include: part replacement of a roof, fencing, reconstruction of brick wall and flower bed in the drive, complete tiling of cloakroom. We have recommended Maricel to a number of friends and family members who have all been pleased with the work that has been undertaken. We look forward to engaging Marcel for our next big project!! We have no hesitation in recommending Marcel to anybody requiring building work and will be happy to talk to them regarding our experiences.
