Testimonials from CorePro Clients | High-end residential building project management for London
Flat full refurbishment

First class organisation and reliability. Minimum of stress. Questions answered promptly and concerns attended to immediately. Without hesitation would employ CorePro again. Employed them on two jobs – complete refurbishment of two bedroom central London flat – faultless work and polite, hard-working employees taking pride in their work. Also conservatory roof repair – excellent work on very difficult job on one of the coldest days of the year. I look forward to employing CorePro again.

James Norman, Herne Hill, London
Wonderful Side and back Extension

We were very happy with the work that Loft, Sergiu and their team did on our extension. They delivered on time and to a high standard, they worked weekends/long hours to ensure the work progressed on schedule and also paid close attention to detail, to ensure everything was addressed and that the finish was excellent quality. They were very responsive to any requests we made to changes from the original plans and often provided helpful suggestions for improvements. The team were very professional and friendly and considerate, for example tidying up regularly. Would highly recommend!

Mr Sam Gale, Forest Hill, London
Loft Conversion

CorePro are a dedicated, professional and trustworthy team, whose quality of work and attention to detail sets them apart.

Our project involved a flat conversion in a Victorian house to create a new bedroom as well as a full renovation. From the initial meeting with director Ion, I was impressed with the ideas put forward for the new layout as well as the detail within the scope of work, which made it easy for me to see how the budget broke down. There were details which we had not considered previously and Ion was direct but honest about what would be required.

Ion offered informative advice throughout the planning process and once we’d been granted our planning permissions, the building project was expertly handled by Sergiu.

The project ran to schedule and any problems/issues along the way were resolved quickly by Sergiu and his team. Sergiu’s attention to detail is very impressive and as well as managing each trade, he ensures that the work done is of a high quality.

They had an additional headache with their client (yours truly!) being onsite most days working in order to save on the budget. Their team were not only good to work with, but offered helpful advice for the work we were carrying out, with us being novices in the DIY world!

Overall they did a great job, we’d highly recommend them.

Olga and Neil Mcmurdo, Kennington, London
Rear dormer loft conversion, truss roof

High-quality build with some skilled and enthusiastic craftsmen, especially on joinery. Able to work professionally with detailed architectural plans. Contract management a little fiddly at times. But overall, excellent professional work at a competitive price.

Mrs Gascoyne, Clapham South, London
Ripping out old bathroom and refitting

Our space was very irregular and awkward and required some creative thinking and problem solving. Project management was fantastic and thorough and good at communicating progress with us. All work done was done to a high standard and we’re very happy with the result.

Mrs Kate Clough, London
Full refurbishment

Ion’s team have just completed a kitchen refurbishment project for us, and we are delighted at how quickly the work was done and to such a high standard. The work involved knocking down a wall between the old kitchen and dining room, replacing the boiler, re-plastering and painting, and installing new kitchen units, as well as removing all the old fixtures, fittings and units. Val the foreman and his team worked all the hours they could to get the work done quickly, and it was completed in two weeks. They were respectful of the house and minimised the disruption to us.

Nick Norvell, Morden, London
Loft conversion, Full Refurbishment

I am very happy with the outcome of this job. It was quite complex in the sense that a whole structure of steel beams was needed to support the loft because the existing structure was wood. So not having done this before, I was concerned – I had to have confidence that this would go smoothly – otherwise with two neighbours either side, I would have a problem to deal with. The end results are excellent. I like Ion’s precision in tracking the budget, and details of the job, even advising me to alter the plan early on to give better roof space. The finish is a very high standard too. Overall, would recommend Corepro and happy to answer queries from potential clients.

Julie Wales, Clapham Junction, London
Flat refurbishment, new wall and new opening

CorePro Ltd offer an intelligent, attentive and totally reliable service. I employed them to carry out major refurbishments at my new flat – which involved totally rewiring the electrics, extensive plumbing works and demolishing and relocating walls. They also helped me to realise my plans to install a new kitchen and bathroom, build new cupboards, instate oak flooring and to paint and decorate throughout.

After a thoughtful first meeting with Ion, Artiom took over the project management of the entire works – which evolved somewhat over three months! Despite which, Artiom was good humoured and patient in helping achieve my particular brief and it was always a pleasure to talk things through.

I have no hesitation in highly recommending CorePro. I know them to be an ambitious and savvy company who fully understand that customer satisfaction is key to their continued success. Their attention to detail and the final finish achieved were down to a genuine pride in their workmanship and a sincere commitment to delivering a great job. They deserve to do well.


Ms S Ward, Tower Bridge, London
Redecorating and refurbish of 2 bed flat after substantial plumbing and electrical works

First class.

Mrs Chiara Mortarino Bowie, Balham, London
Two chimney breasts removed, Kitchen and bathroom fully refurbished

Work was carried out to a good standard. Most of the Workmen were reliable, courteous and professional.

Mr & Mrs Anna & Simon Clarke, Forest Hill, London
Full 2 bed flat refurbishment

Ion and Artiom did a fantastic job with our refurbishment. Initially we requested a quote only for our bathroom renovation – but ended up asking Ion to quote for the full top to toe works in our 2 bed flat. We also had some work done outside including installation of a drain, fixing a roof tile and some re pointing of brick work. Everything has truly exceeded our expectations. It was quite an overwhelming job with so much to consider, but Ion and Artiom’s management, consultation and advice was spot on. We look forward to having them back to quote for our future extension and kitchen makeover!

Mrs Cook
Renovation of 2 bed flat

Ion and Sergiu did a fantastic job of renovating our flat. They removed two walls to create a kitchen diner, replaced the kitchen to an excellent standard with all appliances. The bathroom and toilet room was refurbished. The tiling and wallpaper is excellent. The plumbing is great too. We had a macerator toilet installed and it’s been great. Sergiu and Ion are fantastic to work with. They have a lot of time for their clients. They are innovative, offer ideas and solutions. I will be getting them to do our bedrooms next year!

Tess Meredith Hardy, SW8

Ion and Artiom have just completed my kitchen refurbishment job in a small top floor flat. I couldn’t fault their work throughout the job – they were reliable, trustworthy and recommended the best options for me. They carried out quite significant gas, plumbing and electrical work. The job took slightly longer than both of us anticipated, but was done with care and attention to detail – even working weekends to get it done. I was living in the flat at the time, and they were as tidy as possible. Ion was incredibly helpful in the initial stages – he went to Howdens on my behalf after our initial meeting and managed the design process. I made a lot of improvements to designs etc. and Ion could not have been more patient with my requests. Ion stuck to the cost that he quoted, and made me aware when there were extra things that would cost more & that I requested. Would definitely recommend Ion and his talented team. I am delighted with my new kitchen.

Ms Endean, SW12
Kitchen remodel.
Great job. From the first time I met ion right through to the finish I felt confident I could trust them with the kitchen build in my home. Detailed quotes, innovative problem solving, ion listened and understood I had a limited budget and helped me find ways to make the most of the money I had. Artiom and his team worked really hard and long hours in a confined space to get the kitchen finished. I was delighted with the finished work and would recommend CorePro Ltd absolutely!

Mrs Nikki Pinnington, SW2
Full house renovation.
They came back and rectified any issues. Honest and reliable, if you want a decent builder you will not find better.

Mr John Shipman, SW12
They work very hard and we are very happy. It has been a good experience.

Mr Fergus Barnett, SW12
New kitchen and bathroom installed. Floor leveled. Painting and decorating. Steel supports added.
Ion and Artiom did a great job on my building works and, as I joke with them, I’m quite a difficult customer! They were a pleasure to work with and were always willing to advise me and help me buying suitable materials. Work was completed to a good standard without any major problems along the way. Specialists tiler /plasterers /electricians /plumbers /painters etc were used throughout. I would definitely recommend them.

Mr John Roadnight, SW1
Garage conversion into dining room.
They were always on time, came up with some excellent ideas and added more than was expected.
Core was recommended to me by a neighbor in early 2008, and I used them to convert a garage floor into a bedroom, living area and shower room. I subsequently used them to design and install a new kitchen. I have been satisfied with every aspect of their work: the quality, value for money, reliability, attention to detail and their readiness to address any snagging problems swiftly and cheerfully. On my recommendation they have done kitchen and bathroom replacements for a number of my friends, and, without exception, all were very pleased with the finished job.

Mrs Harriet Smith, SW16
Interior works – painting and decoration, bathroom renovation.
Their work is fantastic, and I will be using them again.
Vishal Mehta, SE13

Ion and his team undertook complete Kitchen refurbishment project for us. Their team is professional and completed the work with good attention to details. I was pleased with the work they did and also would be happy to recommend them.


Caitlin Holland, SW2

Ion and his team provided a professional and thorough quote and service. The work was good quality, the team efficient and any problems were quickly rectified. There was good communication throughout and the team worked hard to complete the project. I would reccommend them.

Myron Agiry, Surrey CR4

Excellent workmanship and extremely professional, job was completed on time and to a very high standard i would definitely recommend them and have to friends and family

Steven Wooley, Waping

Core Property Maintenance have done extensive work for me over the past year on two properties. In both cases this involved re-building 4 bathrooms and 2 kitchens, remodeling listing rooms and bedrooms, making bespoke cupboard and wardrobes, laying flooring and carpeting, plumbing, electrics and painting throughout. I cannot fault them. Their advice was always accurate and the work they carried out was completed to very high standards. Above all they were reliable and considerate. They did the ordering, received the goods, installed and made good after them with minimum fuss and little involvement from myself. I shall have no hesitation in using them again in the future.

 Keith Speakes

Core Property Maintenance have over a period completed some very extensive building works in my house: Alteration of a garage into a utility room and larger bedroom, Renovation of a shower room with installation of all new bathroom furniture, Renovation of a kitchen with installation of all new kitchen units and white goods, etc.

All this work including removal and building of walls etc. and with all the related difficulties and supply problems that arise in such works have all been done to a very high standard, in a very clean modern professional and trustworthy manner – all on time with total commitment and great advice from such building knowledge along the way.

I have no hesitation in recommending Core Property Maintenance to all who require such building works and services.

Graeme MacMillan & Celia Bowers

You and your team worked diligently to get the job done to a high level, including your willingness to work on weekends. The decorating work you did, including paintwork in very non-user-friendly chalky matt paints was second to none and looks amazing. With all-white walls, high ceilings and shutters a perfect finish was essential. The carpentry work is exactly what was needed in a difficult space. As we were living at home whilst the work was carried out, the fact you always left the place clean and tidy and the end of the day helped a lot! I would not hesitate in recommending you to any potential clients.

Nisar Nair

Thanks for completing our extension. It seemed to be a bigger job than I anticipated and run a lot smoother and faster than we could ever imagine. It would be great if all businesses had your integrity. We will always recommend you highly to family and friends.

Tom Gravett

I had three quotes for a major refurbishment to my property (new bathroom, new kitchen, flooring, heating, plastering, doors, windows; the works). Core Property Maintenance has provided an exceptional standard of customer services. Throughout the whole project the service and the standard of the work was beyond my expectations, and John were happy to be in constant text and phone consultation with me. I would not consider using any other company in the future. I almost missed them at the end of the project!

Simon Kennedy, Vauxhall

Core Property Maintenance is a wonderful company that is lead by John Chifiac. John is extremely professional and knowledge in all aspects of building and maintenance. I have recently updated my flat with a new kitchen and bathroom and John was as helpful in the whole overall process as I had never attempted an update before. John has creative ideas and solutions for problems that arise and also has strong links with suppliers to ensure that all new products are high quality. John and his team work to a very high standard and are cost effective compared to other quotes that I received. I would recommended to all friends and family.
