"Paul Glenister and his team were contacted by our company to complete an upgrade and general refurbishment of our office in Hitchin. The response we received was quick and efficient. A reasonably priced estimate was produced within a short time. An order was then placed with Glenister Building Services to complete the work. The internal upgrade, which involved replacement of a door and electrical fittings was completed professionally with ongoing reports of progress given to us. The redecoration of the office then took place, which again was well organised and professionally undertaken. We would definitley consider using Paul and his team at Glenister Building Services Limited for future work."

GBS built a substantial extension on our home. From the very first meeting through to the last carpets being laid we were totally satisfied with the professional advice, quality of work and commitment to fulfilling our requests. We had virtually no disruption to our daily lives and every member of staff was a pleasure to deal with.
I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone.

"To Glenister Building Services. Our bathroom is still looking fine and we are very pleased with it. I have recommended you several times and would do so without reservation."

Peter Warren Cedar Avenue, Ickleford

Glenister Building Services gave excellent support and friendly advice throughout the whole building project. We wanted something a little different and GBS helped us to achieve our vision when others said it couldn't be done.  From the initial design phase to the finished building we received both professional and creative ideas on what we could achieve. During the construction phase the schedule ran like clock-work, the site was always left clean and the builders were all craftsmen in their own right. The finished extension speaks for itself and we have had amazing feedback from everyone who sees it, even other builders. I know that we can be pretty pedantic about things but that is only because we are both artistic by nature and don’t just look at a building as simply functional. You made our vision happen so thanks for that.

Ned Lawton Silsoe

"Paul and his team at GBS carried out two substantial building works for us. The first was a flat roof kitchen extension that needed some careful design work to incorporate the differences in level required by fitting round existing windows, and the second an emergency reconstruction after a large old chimney was struck by lightening and fell through the roof. On both occasions he was prompt, efficient and both pieces of work were carried out to a high technical standard. Each separate transaction was project managed efficiently and his team were always good-humoured, constructive and helpful. After the test of time both have remained structurally sound and attractive. I am pleased to recommend his services to anybody."

Brian M Old Rectory, Lt Brickhill

"Dear Paul and Team. Just to thank you and all your team for the great job you did on our loft and house. Everyone was so good."

"I am retired now but I used to run a firm of Chartered Surveyors in Bedford called Robinson & Hall. We managed property for clients throughout the home counties and East Anglia. Glenister Building Services have a good reputation, but I can personally speak for Paul Glenister, as he renovated a Grade 2 listed old stone farm house for me. He did a superb job for us, which is still admired by visiting friends. Paul also helped me get planning consent for 2 further listed stone and thatch barns nearby. He is a talented and likeable young man and I wish him the very best in the future."

M. Robinson RICS

"I contacted Glenister Building Services to enquire about re-plastering the ceilings in the upstairs of my property. They responded very quickly and came out within 2 days of me contacting them to make an assessment of what needing doing, in order to prepare a quote. Work started 2 weeks later and it was completed within the exact time frame given in the quote. I was very happy with the quality of the work carried out and I was given regular updates on how things were progressing. Glenister Building Services are friendly, honest and trustworthy and I would have no hesitation about contacting them again."

Andrew Hammond Ampthill

"We ‘S J Murphy’ manufacture and install all types of architectural glazing for many builders throughout the south of England and I have to say that Glenister Building are one of the most professional we work for both in terms of the quality of their work and cleanliness and order on site. We would have no hesitation in recommending them."

Steve Firth SJ Murphy Group

"Glenister Building Services have carried out a couple of contracts for me and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them. Paul Glenister's attitude is one of putting the customer first, which in my opinion puts him way ahead of most of his competitors. He does exactly what he says he's going to do, there are no hidden extras and the quality of his work is excellent. A good all round egg, Paul is excellent value for money. A breath of fresh air in cowboy country!"

Allan Taylor Greenwich Developments

"Glenister Building Services won a competitive bid tender in June 2009 to construct a new kitchen, together with the refurbishment of disabled and unisex toilet facilities for Shillington Congregational Church. The work was completed to the exact Architects Specification both on time and within the budget. The workforce were clean and tidy and very sympathetic to working within a church environment. We would have no hesitation in recommending this company for their high standards of workmanship and ability to meet agreed schedules."  

Peter Stapleton Shillington Congregational Church

"I have worked as an architect with Glenister Building Services on many occasions and will continue to do so on future projects. All of the employees and tradesmen are friendly and helpful and their work is undertaken to an excellent level headed up by Paul Glenister, who himself offers friendly and yet professional management."

"Dear Paul & All at GBS. We’re writing to say a huge thank you for our superb extension. We are delighted with how it has turned out and are well settled in all the extra space! We have been extremely impressed with the standard of finish and how efficiently and smoothly everything went. It was a stress-free experience and we will recommend GBS to anyone who asks! Please pass on our thanks to everyone who worked on the project. Our very best wishes for the future."

T, J & E Millar Swift Close, Letchworth

"I have worked with Glenister Building Services on several commercial jobs both small and large with two separate employers. In every instance they have been prompt, professional and courteous in all communication, and have always had the customers best interests in mind even when recommending changes or solutions and always ensuring that the concepts we had have been developed in accordance with budgets and best building practice. Work has always been carried out to a high standard and within time constraints. I would not hesitate to recommend them to carry out work if asked."

P N Frosts Willington Garden Centre

"We are more than happy to recommend Paul Glenister and his team of builders at GBS and have actually recommended them to a number of our friends, who have gone on to use him and also been extremely happy with his work. Paul and his team at GBS are reliable, trustworthy, very clean and tidy workers and work to an exact timetable. Paul is also very easy to talk to, very knowledgeable and we never felt anything was too much trouble for him. Once the job was finished the attention to finishing details was fantastic, so to find all this in a building team is a great asset."

Kate & Andrew Rowland Hitchin

"Paul Glenister is a friendly and conscientious builder who treats your house as he would his home.
