Having just paid the final bill, let me say choosing Thomson Bros was definitely the right decision. We have appreciated the professionalism, detailed knowledge, creativity and attention to detail you have demonstrated throughout. You are nice people to deal with too, and your employees have been consistently friendly and courteous. Please pass on our thanks to all – and certainly not forgetting Andrew, who worked so hard on the many iterations in the early stages.

We just wanted to let you know that we’ve been more than delighted with the new sun blinds – talk about good timing – definitely couldn’t have predicted this weather when the flat was being refurbished at Easter and it was snowing!! We are still finishing off bits and pieces – furniture etc but when recently flying back after a holiday, we both said how much we were looking forward to getting back to our lovely “new” flat – we loved it before & even more so now you’ve helped us do all the things on our wish list. Thank you!

Dear Luke,

Thank you for your letter received this morning regarding the completion of works in our block. Whilst this did not affect us at all, I did want to provide feedback to you, as requested.

We appreciate very much the courtesy of your providing information about ongoing works. Thank you!

All your team are extremely polite when we meet them in the lifts and at 01 and are a real credit to Thomson Brothers.

May we wish you all a very Happy Christmas!

It is now eight months since I moved back into my very much improved flat in the Barbican. You transformed an unusable bathroom into a wonderful warm and light space with great shower, another lavatory, airing cupboard and more – just miraculous. The bonus was that all of your workmen were polite and helpful.

Thank you so much.

I am really pleased with the transformation the work has brought about.  Many thanks to all involved.

Dear Luke and Team,

I want to say a huge thank you for the refurbishment of my flat.

I am really enjoying being back in the new and vastly improved Brandon Mews with all its mod cons, everyone in the Thomson Brothers team that I’ve come into contact with from start to finish has been friendly, “can-do” and genuinely keen to help.  It’s clear that all that work with Thomson Brothers take pride in their work and really want to do a great job.

Saluting you and all the fine folk at Thomson Brothers.

Thanks again for your help.

Ms F, August 2017, Brandon Mews


Hi Luke,

Yesterday, two of your team were really helpful to M and me.

Two of your guys saw us struggling to move two large dining room doors. They each picked up a door and carried them via Beech Street to our flat. They offered to hang the doors as well.  We are very grateful for this self-less help. Great team.

Dear Luke,

Just a note to thank you for responding so promptly to my “cri de coeur” about the shower.  Having followed your advice, all is now working perfectly.  Excellent service!

Ms S, July 2017, Thomas More House


Dear Luke,

I can hardly believe that I have inhabited this flat for already, over a year!  This has been a trouble-free period – everything perfect (apart from the problem with the blind which was so quickly resolved.) My delight is reflected in the many friends who have visited me here –  they are all enthusiastic.  I realise that I am very lucky in having quite the best flat in the whole Barbican.

However, I do now have a small problem about which i need your advice.  Something is faulty with the shower head in the bathroom. It sends jets of water up to the ceiling as well as downwards!  I can’t seem to improve it myself, and suspect a new shower head may be necessary.  Can you please help me with this?

It may interest you to know that only this morning a representative from a local estate agent on admiring the flat interior asked me who had done the work.  He was not surprised when I told him it was Thomson Brothers as “Their work is always quite excellent” he responded!

NB  Luke’s advice was that the nozzles just needed to be rubbed over with fingers to dislodge the usual build-up of limescale.  This should be carried out frequently.

Ms S, July 2017, Thomas More House


Dear Luke,

You are my hero and the best contractors I have EVER worked with.  Thank you.  It’s all going to look wonderful.

Ms J, July 2017, Shakespeare Tower


Dear Luke,

Thanks so much for clearing the flat last week prior to our arrival.  Thomson Brothers have really done a magnificent job and I commend your firm for its truly outstanding professionalism.

Thanks for your prompt attention to this. In all of my dealings with Thomson Brothers, you have always been very professional.

Mr M, March 2017, Shakespeare Tower


Dear Luke,

Many thanks for the work – all great as usual.  We’re very pleased.  Service standards all very good. Thanks.

Ms W, Wallside, February 2017


Dear Luke,

We absolutely love the flat and Chris and the guys were fantastic in the week before Christmas coming in       and sorting out the urgent snags.  Mrs L thought it was fabulous too (and she’s not easy to impress!).  Overall it’s brilliant and we can’t thank you enough for getting it all finished so quickly.

Thanks again for your help.

Ms R, January 2017, Lauderdale Tower


Dear Luke and Damian

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to your and all of your crew for the fantastic work you have done with our flat.  I haven’t stopped smiling since I saw it last night and I am completely blown away by how amazing it looks! I am in absolute awe of the skill and craftsmanship of your team and feel very lucky to be able to enjoy the fruits of their labour.  Everyone I have spoken to from your team throughout this whole process has been nothing but helpful, thoughtful and most of all incredibly patient!  Please could you pass on our sincere thanks to them all and wish them a very happy Christmas.  It really is incredible what they have achieved in such a short space of time.

Massive thanks of course to both of you as well, for your unending help and oversight.  It has been so reassuring to know that the project was safe in your hands and I really have appreciated your guidance as we have moved through the whole process from design to the end result.  You are both so generous with your time and were so available whenever I needed to ask anything that the process all felt amazingly stress free!

Ms R, December 2016, Wallside
