Excellent Quality Building Work
Customer Service
During March & April 2021 George and his team carried out a significant renovation job on our London flat in a Georgian Mansion Block. The work included reconditioning and redecorating all walls and ceilings, new engineered wooden floors, and a number of other repair jobs including full gas and electrical safety certification. George and team were punctual, reliable and really focussed on doing an excellent job. I was very happy with the results, they exceeded my expectation in many areas and without doubt made the flat much more attractive for the subsequent sale. George is a very good communicator and kept me fully appraised of progress and any issues throughout via WhatsApp, video calls and direct interaction when I was in London. George was very good at explaining issues and additional scope items (inevitable during a large job) - it was easy to keep track and to resolve these issues. To round it all off George and his team are all really nice people, a pleasure to do business with. I would not hesitate to use Bhakta Builders again and can 100% recommend them.

Hi, It was a pleasure to work for you. Similar "yoga" and "vegetarian" interests helped the super flow. From the beginning we were on the same wave. Hope your sale went well and all the best to Devon Best Regards George
Excellent work by a honest and competent team
Customer Service
Bhakta Builders saved our home, our kitchen renovations, and our sanity after a torturous experience with the original builder who was FMB registered. The previous builders did not complete the works they were contracted for and paid to do. As a result of their negligence (verified by independent, certified assessors), our home was left in an unsafe condition. Much of the work carried out by the rogue firm had to be redone. The first builder started work during the first and second wave of lockdown, during which we were lucky to get builders on-site on average for 3 days a week - we experienced botched work, haphazard attendance and no kitchen - but gained an immense amount of upheaval and stress. A great deal of research was undertaken to find a new building contractor. We were stressed -with very low morale, uncomfortable, unwell, anxious and wary. After a great deal of research - made more difficult as the 2nd lockdown was now in force, George and Team Bhakta took over. The work ethos was obvious from day one! Bhakta Builders were competent, diligent, honest, transparent and communicative, they worked 6 days a week on-site to ensure we had a weather-protected home and a completed kitchen for Christmas. They restored our home to a safe, comfortable living space and alleviated the stress which was greatly impacting on our wellbeing. Thank you so much George I am very, very grateful to you and your excellent Team

Dear Susan, Thank you very much for the detailed and exhausting review which speaks by itself. Your previous builders brought your home to a very hazardous, not easy life situation. But we are really glad that we could help you live again normally and your nightmare "flew away" with our presence and results of our work. We are looking forward to working with you again on your next project. Thank you very much and good luck with the court and claiming back your money from your previous builder. Best Wishes George
Bhakti Builders
Customer Service
A structural repair under difficult circumstances above a public road was undertaken with efficiency and the minimum of fuss. George Vanek (partner of Bhakti Builders) supervised and managed the project in a most professional manner.

Dear Dennis, Thank you very much for your review. Your structural project was very challenging due location, arch shape and subsiding/collapsing of building, but "nothing is impossible" for us. It surprise us 4 star due your highest satisfaction and invitation for other work, I presume it was by mistake. We are looking forward working with you again. Best Regards George
Render Repairs
Customer Service
Bhakta Builders did an excellent job repairing an area of loose and damaged render on the porch overhang in front of our block of flats. George visited first to discuss the work and the materials that would be used, such as the toupret filler, and provided a clear and detailed quotation. He also gave us good advice on the best time to carry out the repairs, taking weather and temperatures into account. George and his team prepared the site well to protect the path and windows from paint etc and kept us up to date on progress and any issues that arose, which were quickly resolved. The work was completed in a total of about six days spread over two weeks and disruption to residents was kept to a minimum. The porch overhang now looks great, with a smooth finish and three coats of white paint. George also arranged for two new exterior lights to be fitted, which also look very smart. All in all, we would be very happy to recommend Bhakta Builders.

Dear Graham, with bated breath, we read your detailed beautiful review. We really appreciate your honest description of our work and satisfaction with us. We look forward to more cooperation as Simon was talking about the roof repairs. Please send our big “thank you" to your wife for lovely treats she was making for us every day tea, coffees and biscuits! All the best and hope maybe see you again soon. Best Wishes George
Quality driven, reliable and honest builders
Customer Service
This is the first time I have encountered builders who are both driven by quality and are honest and reliable. Having had several very bad experiences with builders I found Bhakta Builders through Which . The building company I had engaged to do the work had left me high and dry having stripped the bathroom but not coming back to complete the job. I contacted Bhakta builders and they agreed to pick up the mess that I had been left with. The workers always came according to schedule and completed the work leaving me with a beautiful bathroom. I am extremely happy with their work and keen to engage them for future projects.

Excellent building firm
Customer Service
We wanted a very competent building firm for a loft extension, bathroom modernisation and (future) ground floor extension of our late Victorian house. We chose Bhakta Builders after weighing up alternative estimates, the credibility of managers, and positive ‘Which Trusted Traders’ reviews. It turned out we chose extremely well - George, Vladimir and all the Bhakta team have delivered a first class service throughout. We’re delighted with the outcome- a lovely spacious loft room and two new bathrooms. Bhakta consulted us carefully at every stage, they found creative solutions when problems arose, and they were always thoughtful about our needs as a family living in situ during the work. They were also helpful on sourcing quality materials for us at competitive prices. We plan to use Bhakta Builders for our further work, and we would unhesitatingly recommend them to other ‘Which’ readers.

Let us know the time which suits you and we will fit there. Best Wishes George
A difficult job well done – we hope to work with Bhakta Builders again
Customer Service
After reading positive reviews we contacted Bhakta Builders who were able to provide a free quote for extensive refurbishment and repairs to a building exterior- guttering, window frames, re-pointing and roof of a residential and commercial property. George was able to provide a reasonable quote, whilst also alerting us to the likelihood of further work necessary than we had anticipated. As the job evolved, George was able to keep us informed of works necessary with pictures and communication via WhatsApp and phone calls. He was extremely dedicated in his approach to the job, which was complicated as it involved him liaising with our surveyor and tenants and providing required paperwork in a timely fashion, as well as managing the changing work on site. The quality of the work is excellent, as is George’s ability to manage his business whilst thinking of our interests and seeking to save us money where possible. We highly recommend him and his helpful team.

New sash windows
Customer Service
Bhakta Builders removed old aluminium sash window that was 30 years old and replaced them with new bespoke wood sash windows in a bedroom and bathroom. They were excellent and did a very high-quality job. We had other quotes that were cheaper but George (the business owner) and his team were by far better value overall. The windows were beautifully crafted and finished, and the sash mechanisms very smooth with high-quality brass fittings. His team are very skilled, work to high standards, and were very hard working. The windows were very well fitted and installed. George was very clear about what we could expect particularly working on a 100-year-old Edwardian house and needing to cut into bathroom tiles, alerting us to potential problems in advance, and promptly attended to and resolved our concerns. The results were great and I would highly recommend Bhakta Builders.

Removal of Internal Wall
Customer Service
We worked with Bhakta Builders and an independent structural engineer to remove an internal wall on the ground floor. Vladimir coordinated the original work and helped confirm that the wall was non-load bearing. Once that was confirmed, George finalised the scope of work and provided us with the fee quote. Bhakta then removed the wall, painted and redecorated to leave the ground floor looking in excellent condition. We felt the price was reasonable, the work was carried out as swiftly as possible (given the circumstances) and we felt at each stage as though they really listened to us and helped us achieve the best outcome. We would highly recommend their service.

Build front wall
Customer Service
We needed to have the wall at the front of our property rebuilt after a bad experience with a previous builder left us with our wall demolished and no wall between our property and the pavement. Bhakta Builders were willing to help quickly, however, due to my ill-health the work was postponed till I had recovered. We asked them to build a brick wall topped with our original coping stones, which they agreed to clean, fill and paint. The work was done professionally and we are very happy with the completed work. There was no overrun on the budget, and the price was reasonable. The pavement was always left clean and tidy after each working day. Bhakta Builders were polite, helpful and professional. Communication has been by WhatsApp, email and phone and we have always been kept fully informed, as well as regularly consulted as to whether the work is proceeding satisfactorily. We are happy to recommend Bhakta Builders.
