What our customers say...

Summit performed a large renovation on our home, designed by Space group architects, building a side and rear extension, loft extension, large outhouse and garden landscaping.

Julian has impeccable design skills and suggested some really nice features, such as the detailed brickwork surrounding the extension to match the external loft wall, a large entrance space, giving our home a bright open feel as you walk in the front door, plenty of useful, bespoke carpentry throughout and a beautifully designed garden with a sunken trampoline for the children and tree slide, not to mention the most fantastic outdoor kitchen area which we cannot wait to take advantage of this summer.

Summit offer a bespoke mural service which we used for our daughters bedroom. After being given the theme of “Space Jam,” Angelina, Summit’s artist drew a mock up of her design for us to approve before getting to work on the wall. Our girls were over the moon with the outcome and we love having something a bit different to the standard wall paper or paint.

From start to finish the entire Summit team were outstanding, they were always so punctual, hardworking, tidy and respectful and were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Julian coordinated each of his individual tradespeople seamlessly, making the whole process really simple for us as clients which was worth its weight in gold. Being perfectionists, we were concerned about the finished article, but we couldn’t be happier. The quality of their work is excellent and each and every member of staff took great pride in their high standard of workmanship.

Our quote from Summit wasn’t the cheapest that we received during the tender process, however we believe that we paid for a quality outcome and that’s exactly what we received, with minimal stress throughout the process.

All in all, we cannot fault Summit as a company, and recommend them to everyone that needs any major renovations.

Summit were recommended to us by our neighbours who had previously used them for their own project. Whilst Summit were not the cheapest firm to provide a quote we were reassured following our initial meeting with Julian and it was clear that he understood our expectation and high standards and gave us the confidence he could deliver the project that we had in mind.

The team at Summit carried out the building and refurbishment work at our property which included demolishing an existing single story extension and replacing with a larger structure which would include the laying of herringbone flooring throughout the sitting and dining room areas and traditional floor tiles to the hallway area and complete redecoration of the completed areas. Being in a mid terrace property we were conscious that all materials would need to be brought though the property and were concerned about the levels of dirt and potential damage to areas not included in the building work. We were also concerned about the containment and safety of our pets as they would be present in the house throughout the build. The Summit team fully respected and understood all of these concerns and were very accommodating and respectful of this throughout. The team on site were always polite and respectful and completely approachable when we had questions or needed to discuss elements of the build and they were also very courteous and respectful to our neighbours.

As with all building projects there were unexpected challenges and problems that needed to be tackled and Julian was always responsive and on hand to discuss and address as needed. Julian also liaised extensively with our glazing contractors who provided the glazed roof, external and internal doors. Overall we are extremely happy with the work the team delivered and the finished works surpassed even our expectations!

We would highly recommend Summit for any building project as Julian and the team were excellent!

Summit did a single storey ground floor extension with garage conversion on our 1920’s semi-detached property in South Woodford. To source our builder we asked for input from our local Facebook group, Summit had 100% positive reviews from the local community, we also visited a local property they had renovated and were really impressed with the finish. Summit were punctual, tidy, informative, considerate and diligent. The team work so hard. Our foreman Bogdan was fantastic, always willing to go the extra mile to make our project the best it could be. We were greatly appreciative of all their design ideas, and input into how things could best work.

We had some complicated design ideas (particularly my larder) but they approach everything with enthusiasm and a can-do attitude. The quality of the finish is brilliant, and we really appreciated the full service approach from tearing down to painting the rooms. We’re very happy with their work and we’d recommend them highly to others.

Julian and the Summit team were recommended to us by our friends – I think it is fair to say that it is uncommon to receive builder recommendations but following our experience with Summit – we would highly recommend them to anyone! We are so happy with the work completed at our property – it is better than we could have imagined. We had a single storey extension, full refurbishment and drive way completed at our home.

Julian coordinated the entire project and was always on hand if we had questions. Julian never came to us with issues or problems – only with solutions and ideas of how to improve the space. If there was stress involved in the project, we wouldn’t know, as Julian dealt with this behind the scenes so that we could enjoy the process and focus on choosing finishings. The quality of the finish is extremely high and the cost was exactly what was quoted with all extras quoted upfront.

Our work was completed during the second COVID lockdown, we experienced no delays in building work or materials and Julian’s team were reliable and professional throughout. The Summit team were very respectful of our property and space. It was a pleasure to have them working on our property.

If we move home in the future, I can’t see us ever undertaking building work again without Summit on board.

Summit helped us to complete a whole-house renovation including a front, rear extension, and garage conversion. We researched a number of builders before deciding on Summit as we connected with Julian immediately and Summit's reputation in the area proceeds them, giving us assurance that we were in safe hands.

Having first-hand experience of the Summit team, we can only echo the feedback of clients before us and concur that the whole team are the most hard-working, professional, skilled, attentive throughout. We were very particular with certain aspects of the job - Julian and team were always accommodating and made great suggestions to help us achieve what we had in mind. It is also the little things like the way they tidy up each day, respected our home like their own and always greeted us with a smile.

We liked the fact that Summit had their own electrician, plumber, plasterer, painter, carpenter etc who all contributed and produced an amazing final product (many visitors have commented on the quality of the finish!).

We felt so lucky to have the Summit team complete the initial planned works that we decided midway through to make use of the skills at our disposal and extend the scope of work to include the front and back gardens for a complete renovation which turned out the right decision. We have no regrets at all and would recommend Summit without hesitation.

Thank you to Julian and team for creating this amazing space where we can now call home, a place to work and a social hub to host family and friends.

Julian was great from start to finish and helped with suggestions of things to do. I worked from home every day of the six month build due to the pandemic, but there were no complaints about working around me. I was impressed by the attention to detail (and subsequent high quality finish) by the plasterers and painters. SGBC went above and beyond what was agreed where required and our neighbours found them to be very considerate. We’re looking forward to having SGBC back for phase two!

Vadym and the Summit team were recommended to us by a neighbour who had done a roof extension – ours was a bigger task as we were remodelling the whole ground floor including building two extensions and knocking out the side wall, but Vadym took it in his stride.

We were particularly grateful that as the building work progressed, whenever a minor problem cropped up or we realised that our architect’s plans were ambiguous, Vadym was on hand with an ingenious solution to resolve the issue. When we needed to make choices about the right approach, he would talk us through the potential options allowing us to make our decisions with confidence. His vigilance and professionalism were hugely reassuring, as we had no experience of taking on a task of this magnitude ourselves.

Vadym and his colleagues took care of all the main tasks – from masonry to plastering, carpentry, electrics, plumbing and decorating. They even transformed the garden at the end. We are delighted with the end result, and look forward to working again with Summit in the future.
Home Owner
We are delighted with the building work Summit have done on the whole of the downstairs of our house, which has completely transformed the space and the way we live.

The team were really professional and we were impressed by their work ethic. They showed up punctually every morning without fail and heeded all of our requests with a smile. Even when we changed our mind during the build, which we did several times, they made the alterations straight away at no additional cost. This really reassured us that we were going to get exactly what we wanted, which we found extremely comforting as we had no prior experience of renovation.

We loved the fact that Julian ordered all the materials and coordinated the entire project behind the scenes, so we did not have to worry about orders and deliveries of materials or anything else really.

The entire team were very friendly, polite and respectful as we carried on living on site throughout the build. They moved our old kitchen around the house several times, so we could continue to cook before the new kitchen was installed. This made a real difference to us as we were able to continue living fairly comfortably with our baby boy despite the build.

The builders got themselves organised on site without having to ask us for anything and were happy to try and explain to us when we had queries or questions. The quality of the work is excellent and the builders are very hard-working and efficient. They got on with the work and got things done according to schedule. All the minor snags were promptly taken care of.

We wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend Summit to anyone considering doing any construction work on their property!

We had Summit Builders round for a quote and immediately wanted them to do our extension! We had seen their previous work and had spoken to other people who have used them that said, they have the best finish and couldn’t fault them.

My partner and I were both quite particular about how we wanted things and were also worried about the mess of having builders in and living there at the same time. We needn’t have worried, as they were the tidiest, cleanest, most professional company! Each and every builder was polite and friendly and made us feel at ease throughout the entire process, especially Andrew, Victor and Andre. We actually missed them when they had gone!

Julian helped us come up with several design ideas throughout the process which we wouldn’t have thought of ourselves and we now love!

After the extension had finished, they came back after Christmas to touch up any bits and pieces that needed doing, without even being asked to. Everyone who sees our home now asks who did our extension as the finish is exceptional! We cannot wait to start the 2nd part of our extension upstairs and would only have Summit Builders do it.  We couldn’t recommend them enough.

Choosing the right builder in London is incredibly difficult given the vast number offering their services, and it’s very easy to feel overwhelmed. My wife and I certainly did, and when we bought our flat that needed total renovation, we first picked the wrong builders. After 3 months we realised we had made a mistake, and asked them to leave. After some research and word of mouth we were introduced to Vadym and his team at Summit Group Building Company.

Throughout the entire process of quoting, to building and after-care they have been professional, efficient and helpful. The results speak for themselves, the flat was finished within the timeline, with no budget overruns and finished to an exceptionally high standard throughout.

What my wife and I particularly appreciated was that Vadym was not simply a “yes man”, building to a spec and adding nothing more. During the renovation, Vadym would suggest alternatives or improvements that my wife and I hadn’t considered but with hindsight proved to be the right call. My wife and I highly recommend the team at Summit Group Building Company, and have already suggested them to friends and family.
Home Owner
As we were planning a substantial extension and renovation of our family home, we spent a great length of time searching for the right building company. While Summit did not provide the cheapest quote, we really liked that they don’t use any contractors and could do all the work in house (including decorating, tiling and the garden). From the beginning Julian and the team made a very good impression, they were knowledgeable, understood our requirements and came up with good solutions for the queries we had. Also, between the companies we considered Summit had by far the best reputation and so we decided to proceed with them, and we must say that they did not disappoint.

They were a great pleasure to work with, showed great patience and accommodated all of our additional requests. Unlike other builders who use any extra requests for work to make a quick extra buck, Summit often agreed to do small extra items without any additional costs and for the larger items they charged a fair price. They used the highest quality materials throughout and were very quick to rectify any imperfections that we found, even if it was not their fault. Summit worked hard to source supplies and continue construction during the Spring 2020 lockdown, even when most other building companies had stopped any works. When it was time to move back into our house, they worked early morning and late night shifts to get the construction to a level that enabled us to live in the house.

Summit consulted us about very little detail in the design to make sure we were happy with the work throughout. At the same time, they had a lot of building and design suggestions which we found extremely useful. After finishing the works, Summit were very happy to rectify any small niggles that we pointed out.

In summary, Summit group exceeded our expectations and we did not regret our choice at any point. Any extra money spent compared to other building companies was well worth it and we can unreservedly recommend Summit to anyone looking for top quality work and peace of mind doing a large domestic project.

We spent quite a bit of time looking at builders for our new house extension but as fate would have it, I had previously noticed whilst on my daily walks, a house just around the corner from our property, where Summit Group were currently working. I'd never seen or heard of Summit Group before but the newly updated front of the property made such an impression on me that I made a note of the company name. That was almost a couple of years ago now.

After meeting with various different builders, we decided that we really wanted to work with a company that would manage the whole build for us. We didn't want to have to source and manage other contractors such as plumbers, electricians or decorators separately, so when we met with Julian from Summit Group for the first time, he let us know that Summit Group had its own group of plumbers, electricians and decorators who all work together under the one umbrella. Summit Group would coordinate and manage the whole build. That to us was a huge factor in us choosing Summit Group, as the last thing we wanted, was to have a contractor finish their part and pretty much walk off site without the job being fully completed with gas, electricity and all. We really didn't want to have to project-manage various separate contractors ourselves.

When we met Julian for the first time, he was friendly and he gave us some other very helpful ideas with regard to our new extension. After much deliberation (another very well-respected builder was coming out a bit cheaper) we decided to go with Summit Group for the build and we are extremely pleased that we did.

Very soon after accepting Summit Group's quote they started to move their equipment onsite and it wasn't long before they'd completely taken down the rear of the property. Throughout the build, we found the team to be very professional, friendly, hard-working and punctual and we found their work (and their work ethic) to be of an extremely high standard. Julian provided a constant presence throughout the life-cycle of the build and he was really very helpful indeed in suggesting suitable ideas when we were faced with certain challenges along the way.

Much of our build took place during the Coronavirus pandemic and it is a credit to Summit Group that they were able to finish our project during such difficult circumstances.

We are extremely pleased with the extension, the new upstairs bathroom, the heating solution, the electrics and all of the decoration that Summit Group have provided and we have, as a result, ended up with a fantastic extension that far exceeds what we could ever have dreamed of!

Thank you very much indeed to all at Summit Group. We will miss seeing the team, we will miss our weekly catch-ups with Julian and we will certainly miss his contagious laughter.

Summit converted the loft, reconfigured the 1st floor, installed 3 bathrooms, bespoke cabinetry throughout, rewired and plumbed everywhere, built an extension, re-rendered, landscaped the garden, built a garden room, installed a new driveway and built the kids a climbing frame! There isn’t anything of the original house left.

Summit were an absolute pleasure to work with, they went above and beyond to accommodate our requests (which often meant changing things). Their team were always here, always worked a full day and took a real pride in the work they did.

We did our works in two phases and where possible Julian used the same team for both. Vasili is now part of the family! We lived in the house for Phase 2 and Julian and the team made us a comfortable kitchen/lounge space and planned all of the works around us being in the house at the same time as them.

The quality of Summit’s work is excellent, they take pride in their finishing and high standard of workmanship. I would highly recommend them for any large project. We will defiantly be working with them again in the future, but for now we get to enjoy the finished product!

We’d heard lots of positive things about Summit Building Group company. Right from the initial meeting with Julian we knew they would be a trusted and safe choice to undertake the ground floor renovation of our Victorian terrace, including a side return extension.

Being a bit of a perfectionist, we loved their approach of using high quality materials and their commitment to completing works to the highest standard. They also came up with great ideas to enhance the architect plans and provided solutions to ensure the end result was as aesthetically pleasing as possible.

Every single team member was punctual, polite and most importantly were all highly skilled tradespeople. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend SGBC. They’ve definitely left a lasting impression in our house, as our young son now likes to play builders, he’s ‘Big Julian’ and I’m ‘Julian Jnr’

We were looking to get our ground floor extended along with our loft converted into an ensuite bedroom. As part of the project we also had all of the ground floor flooring redone.

We decided to undertake the work at the same time as our neighbours, who wanted to do similar things to their house. We met a lot of builders and ultimately decided on Summit based on the strength of their reputation. I received so many overwhelmingly positive reviews about them, and saw the high quality finish of their work,  that I knew the process would  be far less stressful than choosing another building company, which might have been cheaper.

Indeed, very early on in the process, we went into lockdown and the team did everything they could to continue the project, safely, despite supply issues. We knew that we were in the best hands possible given the unprecedented situation we were in. The team were very diligent, always starting work at 8am and finishing at 5pm, ensuring good progress was made every day. The team were friendly.

We also received some good design ideas and feedback from Julian, which ultimately made the end result of our project much better than what we started off with.
Simone and Stuart
Home Owner
Summit performed a large renovation on our house, essentially knocking down the original house (other than a few external walls) and doing a complete rebuild. We chose Summit as we had watched them do a similar project around the corner from our house and noticed how hard they had worked and how quickly the project had been completed. The owner, also kindly let us into the completed house and we were very impressed with the quality of finish. We were therefore pleased that the quote we received for the work was competitive and we decided to proceed with Summit.

We had never done a house renovation before and were therefore apprehensive about the horror stories that you hear. We can honestly say that Julian and the team at Summit were exceptional and we very quickly knew that we had 100% made the right choice. All the builders were extremely polite, friendly, always on time, extremely hard working and clearly very good at what they do! Julian managed the whole project from start to finish (we didn’t have an architect to project manage) and I think it was probably as stress free as it could have been. Julian was very open to our ideas and also had plenty of great ideas himself. We never got the impression that things were too much trouble and all the builders took pride in the work they were doing.

The very limited number of other trades that visited the house (windows / carpets) all commented, without prompting, about how impressed they were with the quality of the work and that no corners had been cut. The quality of the finish was exceptional and Summit went above and beyond…one example was a bespoke bar that we had built in the main room, which has opening and slide away doors, which proved technically tricky to design and install but Julian and the team delivered, and there are many other examples - the main carpenter we had on site was a genius!

Other than add-ons which we decided on during the build, Summit stuck to the original quote which we were really impressed with as I’m sure that some items were a bit trickier / took longer than they had originally quoted for. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Summit to family / friends and we were really impressed with the service they provided from start to finish

Thank you and keep up the excellent work!

We’re extremely happy with the work completed by Summit at our home. Our house was practically demolished and re-built.

From start to finish, we have always been able to communicate well with Julian and his team. They have always gone above and beyond to ensure that we were happy with the work as it was progressing, nothing was ever a problem. If you're looking for builders who are trustworthy, reliable and efficient then look no further - we will definitely be using these guys again!

After much research into local building companies, we chose Summit to carry out a large renovation project on our family home.

We couldn’t be more happy with the service we received over the months that they were with us. We remained living in the house with our three children and dog. The team were incredibly hard working, tidy and polite at all times. Julian, Summit’s co-owner managed the build and would visit most days to discuss our ongoing project and answer any questions we may have.

Each tradesperson needed throughout the build were employed by Summit. This meant that there were never any delays waiting for subcontractors which seems to be pretty rare in the building industry.

Julian is not only a great communicator, he also has fantastic design skills and we actually made a few amendments to our architects plans because of his suggestions. We had lots of bespoke carpentry built throughout, from wardrobes, to cupboards and our entire utility room. Julian designed it all, drawing his plans on the wall for his talented carpenters to build. It was truly amazing!

Overall we cannot fault Summit as a company, and recommend them to everyone that needs any major renovations. Their craftsmanship and high quality finish is second to none and we can't thank them enough for building our dream home.

We 100% made the right choice entrusting Summit with the extension and refurbishment of our home.

Julian and his team made the process smooth, even in the face of the COVID-19 lockdown.

Every member of the team is hardworking and committed to achieving an excellent quality finish. Importantly also in sharing our home for several months, they were always friendly, tidy and patient with us being around too! Our boys also loved Julian’s signature wicked laugh!!

Thank you Summit, we look forward to lots of fun family times in our beautiful reconfigured home!

“Summit do a lot of construction in this area, and having seen examples of their work, they were a fairly obvious choice of contractor to be added to the tender process.

They were not necessarily the cheapest quote, however they insisted on doing the work within their own team so they could ensure quality, and they manage the build process from start to finish. All Summit staff attending site were extremely polite, tidied up after themselves and nothing seemed to much trouble for them to minimise our inconvenience.

We had a couple of surprises thrown in along the way (anyone embarking on a construction project should be in no doubt that this will happen!) and I was impressed by the way Summit (particularly Julian) dealt with it. I think a good measure of a contractor is how they deal with such unplanned events. Some see it as an opportunity to squeeze money out of the client, some offer little help as it wasn’t in the original plans. Summit were very pragmatic in their approach to such problems, offering sound advice and absorbing as much cost as they reasonably could.

In terms of the quality of the product, their level of finishing is excellent. The carpenter we had undertaking second fix was more of an artist than a tradesperson!

Thank you to Julian and the team, we are very happy with the end product and wouldn’t hesitate to use Summit again.

“I have used Summit Group on a number of projects that I’ve done over the past 10 years. Ever since the first project in Notting Hill Gate they have been my go to contractor.

Vadym and the team are professional, personable and extremely trustworthy. That trust and the relationship that we have built up over the past decade is invaluable. Their finish and attention to detail is spot on as is their problem solving ability.

I cannot speak highly enough of the Summit Group.”

We had heard nothing but rave reviews about Summit from friends and neighbours, and they were absolutely right.

Julian and his team are incredibly competent and hard working. Nothing is too much trouble, and Julian was always kind and patient in the face of our indecision. The whole process was smooth from start to finish, and we couldn’t be more thankful for our dream home. We love it!

Summit have recently completed a kitchen extension for us and we are very happy with the result. The team were on site 6 days a week, here before 8am, going above and beyond keep the project on target. 

The team were lovely to work with and very respectful while we continued to live with our young kids in the house. They were committed to getting the project completed and took pride in their work. Julian made site visits on a regular basis and we talked through any concerns open and honestly.   

Costing was fair and alterations to these were always discussed first so there were no surprises and snagging issues have been addressed since completion. We would be happy to recommend Julian and the Summit team and we are planning to use them again for our attic renovations in the future.

Summit have just completed a full refurbishment of our house and we are delighted with the result. Their team of experienced trades have transformed our tired victorian house into a wonderful light filled space.

We have been so impressed with their exacting standards and refusal to make compromises. We moved back into the house 4 weeks ago and the few snagging issues have been swiftly addressed.

We cannot recommend Vadym and his team enough. Should we ever need to do a similar project in another property It would be Summit who we would call. The project was completed on time and in budget, despite the fact that we asked for additional work which was outside the scope of the original tender. Visitors to our house who have seen the results have already contacted the company with a view to obtaining quotes for their own projects. I have no doubt there will be many others to follow.

We engaged Summit to greatly extend and rebuild our house with a completely different layout. Only 3 walls and the staircase remained at the commencement of the project. We had met with other building companies but based on price, advice, ideas and Julian himself we decided to move forward with Summit. We gave the project a 6 month deadline, and snagging aside; Summit met this. The team worked 6 days a week and were always onsite before 8am – in the summer often staying well into the evening to complete tasks.

The team were an absolute pleasure to deal with – nothing was ever too much trouble. Everyone was respectful, committed and took pride in their work. The team were lovely with our children, taking the time to explain things, listen to their wish lists and even treated them to sweets! The scale of our renovation was extensive and yet the house was always kept in immaculate condition plus we had no complaints from neighbours. The team went to great lengths to deliver total satisfaction and things like digging up daffodils and replanting them, and rehoming nesting birds stick in my mind show the level of detail the Summit crew observe.

Julian made site visits on a daily basis and addressed any concerns immediately. He made suggestions that altered the course of the build for the better and was totally transparent on costs throughout. The end result was spectacular and we were delighted with our choice of building company. We would have no hesitation in recommending Summit

“My wife and I decided to use SGBC for our basement works after a tender process involving several high quality contractors. SGBC’s pricing was reasonable compared to the others, and given it is very unlikely we will ever do works of this scale ever again, the choice of contractor was so important – the difference between the process being difficult, stressful and draining and exciting.

Bottom line is, we couldn’t have got it more right. Vadym and literally every single one of his team that came to site were delightful. From the ground-works crew, to the bricklayers, the electricians, the plumbers, the decorators, the tilers, the joiner (who is a literally one of the most skilled craftsmen I’ve ever seen work) and of course Vadym himself….they were all very polite, unbelievably hard working, respectful and talented.

We’ve reflected on how the process could have gone (the team were with us 15 months) and my wife and I literally can’t fault these guys. They did what they said they would do, they kept to budget and most importantly, the quality of the workmanship that we have been left with is outstanding. The finish is just exceptional. If you have a big job that you are hoping will turn your home into your dream home but that whole notion makes you feel nervous that it may all go wrong along the way, then you need to call SGBC. If your journey with them is half as good as ours…..you’ll be left very pleased indeed and will probably end up writing a testimonial like this one.”

I have now worked with Summit on four projects in various parts of London. I was first introduced to Julian, working in Wanstead on a large house renovation which included the complete reconfiguration of the existing property, adding a very large extension to the rear, the side and the roof space. Throughout the project Julian was accommodating and easy to work with. His team were very hard-working and the final product that they produced was of an excellent quality. I know that the property owner is also very happy with their newly refurbished home.

After working with Julian I was introduced to his business partner Vadym who works mainly in South London. He first completed a project for us in Clapham Junction where we added a new basement to a property as well as extending and completely refurbishing the existing dwelling. This project was actually published in Grand Designs Magazine and recognised in the Don’t Move Improve Awards, 2019, which identifies the best extensions in London of the year. We were very happy with the quality of the work produced and Vadym’s team showed a full range of skills being able to complete everything from basement construction through to the finer finishing details that we asked for.

The following project that they completed for us was actually my own house. I think it speaks highly when an architect uses a builder on their own house. I am incredibly happy with the result of this build.

The last project is a new build development in East Dulwich. We introduced some very complicated brick detailing into this building which Vadym and his team embraced. The building is nearing completion and is looking excellent.

We definitely test the builders that we work with and ask them to produce bespoke details that are different from typical housing projects. Each time both Vadym and Julian have stepped up and delivered in all cases and the products they have produced have met our very high expectation. We hope to work with them again soon.

We used Summit for a major two storey modernisation, extension and garden renovation project and we absolutely love our new house!

The Summit team worked so hard, and maintained an impressive momentum throughout the project. I have no doubt that we were difficult clients to work with at times, as we were looking for such a high standard of finish, but Julian and his team were absolutely up to the job, meeting and often surpassing our expectations.

Most importantly, the team were always friendly, professional, offered great advice throughout the project and were determined to ensure we were happy with the end results – which we absolutely are. I would 100% use Summit again, and plan to soon!

This was the first major building project I have undertaken (two storey rear extension, entire renovation over 6 months) and I really struck gold by securing Julian and team’s services. They came with a glowing recommendation from my architect, whose house they were simultaneously working on, which instantly filled me with confidence.  

I have to say, Julian and team have far exceeded my expectations. All work has been completed to the highest standard (almost every visitor comments on the quality of the tiling / paintwork), on budget and on time, despite starting in the middle of Winter. Just as importantly, the team have been an absolute pleasure to deal with and neighbours have commended the clean and respectful way in which they go about their work.

Julian is a top bloke and throughout the process made a number of clever design suggestions which greatly improved the overall finish (the glass floor was a touch of genius). None of my requests were ever a problem and Julian showed great patience throughout, despite my lack of project experience. There is a clear cohesion and camaraderie amongst the team of specialist builders, bricklayers, electricians, plumbers, carpenters and tilers who work together seamlessly and tirelessly.  I shall genuinely miss our Saturday morning catch ups. If I decide to push the boat out on a loft extension there is no question who I will call. Cannot speak highly enough of these guys. Top class.

“We are very pleased with the work Summit did to build our family house for life! We selected Summit based on all the incredible feedback we got from their previous clients – and now we can see why.

The work comprised of a 4 meter rear extension involving lots of steel creating a stunning Open Plan Kitchen, Diner and Living Room, a loft conversion, remodelling and a full refurbishment. Not only was their work done to a very high standard, but they took all the stress out of what would normally be a very stressful process.

Julian is a great communicator, and they have assembled an impressive team who are very skilled, professional and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they had solutions for all our requests, plus many great suggestions of their own.

Overall the proof is in the beauty of the house they built for us and how happy we are!”

From day one the Summit team worked extremely hard every day until completion. Each Summit team member- builder, electrician, decorator, tiler, plumber, carpenter, is meticulous, with an excellent standard of skill and talent.

We are thrilled with the result because of this. Julian helped us to plan and make decisions as we went along with his expertise; eye for interior and exterior detail; and great knowledge of the best suppliers. The guys couldn’t be nicer to have around- always so polite and friendly.

“We chose Summit for our project (house refurb/extension/loft conversion) because their reputation in Aldersbrook and Wanstead is second to none. Julian and his team were fantastic from start to finish; the work was completed on time and carried out to a very high quality.

We were impressed by how much Julian was involved closely on the project, making helpful, practical and cost-conscious suggestions along the way.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Julian and Summit to others - their excellent reputation is very well deserved.”

“Summit created a single story rear extension for us last summer and we couldn’t be happier with the end result. The team were so friendly, very punctual and considerate of the fact we had a 6-month old baby! There was never an issue of working late if the build needed to be kept on track.

Julian was very good at keeping us up to date on the progress of the build, and giving us suggestions on potential finishes. We would highly recommend Julian and his team and will be using them for future building work on our property”.

“We chose Summit to renovate and extend our basement in 2017 because they were competitively priced and we were impressed by the appearance of other jobs they had completed in the area.

During the build we found the workers to be punctual, extremely hard working, always polite and friendly and resourceful. They turned up on time every day regardless of the weather, always put in a full day’s work and kept the site as tidy as possible.

The build involved a huge amount of manual effort as there was no rear access to our property to enable them to use machinery. Julian visited us regularly throughout the build to discuss progress and the project kept to schedule. Considering the scale of the work, we had relatively little snagging and what we did have was addressed quickly and without any fuss.

We were delighted with the work Summit undertook for us and would not hesitate to use them again. They have proved to be very reliable and we would thoroughly recommend them.”

I am super happy with the work that Summit did for me. The team was very friendly and professional - even my neighbours were impressed! I was worried how it would feel having them in my house all the time, but they were always very respectful of the fact that it was my home and I was still living there, and left everything really tidy. They didn’t even complain when I accidentally left the chain on the door and they wasted 3/4 of an hour waiting for me to get up and let them in.

One of my other concerns was that costs would mount up, but actually everything cost exactly what was quoted, and anything extra that I had them do was quoted for upfront so that that everything was clear and transparent. They even did a few extra things free of charge which was really appreciated.

The communication throughout was excellent, and I’m really thrilled with the end result. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

What a relief to have contracted Summit to do the building works on our home. From the very first phone call to enquire through to them handing back our keys last week, everything was stress free, professional and expertly done.

Julian, Andrew and the rest of the team were a breath of fresh air - builders who know their job, can problem solve, work quickly and cleanly! They restored our faith in builders - would wholeheartedly recommend them. Thank you Summit
