character construction



John & Joy Clark

"Andrei and his specialist team recently transformed our 1980's duplex lakeside apartment .
A complete renovation took place including the kitchen , bathrooms and original plumbing and electrics . All new flooring , windows ,doors , plaster and electrics resulting in a fabulous open plan home that we just love .  A total "turn key" service including bespoke fitted wardrobes with amazing attention to detail on all materials and accessories.  The whole process was totally stress free from our side and it was so professionally handled , completing on time and to our original budget.  We would not hesitate to recommend Andrei and Character Construction to any one for their building needs.

"Working on this project was a real joy and this was mainly due to the “can do” attitude of Andrei. From start to finish Andrei was quick and efficient. He had good advice and his prices were very competitive. His team worked exceptionally hard to get the job done on time and the finishings are first class. I am very proud of this project and extremely grateful to Andrei and his team."

"Andrei and his team did a magnificent job at refurbishing and extending our villa in Quinta do Lago. Andrei is reliable, enthusiastic and true to his word. He completed our refurbishment to the highest of standards on the exact day promised and he fulfilled all works according to budget. Most importantly, Andrei was constantly on hand to support with any additional requests and adjustments once the project was complete. He is a true gentleman in the building industry. I cannot recommend him any more highly."

"Andrei (Character Building) was excellent.  He refurbished our 2 bedroom apartment.  It was clear he had several projects (on much bigger properties than ours) and he ensured our project had equal attention.  He was very good to deal with and his advice was very helpful both in relation to design issues of the refurbishment and the selection of materials.  The workmanship was of a very high quality and changes in the plan were readily altered.  After completion small snags were sorted without difficulty. We were delighted with the finished apartment, which looks fantastic.  Andrei and his team did a wonderful job and we would have no hesitation in availing of his services for a future project."

"Character did a comprehensive refurb/rebuild of our villa in 2009 and the workmanship and quality of finish was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble to Andrei and his team. Since that time whenever any issues have arisen Andrei has responded promptly and overcome the problem without any fuss or difficulty. I have no hesitation in highly recommend Andrei and Character for any building plans you may have."

"It was a very demanding project with a lot of technical challenges.  Character Construction was able to overcome these challenges and deliver the project on a very short timeline without any compromise on quality. They were a pleasure to work with."
