CB1 undertook the complete replacement of 4 bathrooms at my property during the summer of 2017. A substantial 3 month project.
Ali and his team were great to deal with and I highly recommend them.
As you can imagine, there are a lot of decisions that need to be made on fixtures & fittings and design and Ali was incredibly helpful the whole way through the process.
The level of finishing was great and any minor snagging items that we encountered, Ali was straight back to fix them without delay.
Ali and his team continue to be useful for any building type work that I need doing around the house and are a team that I will always go to.
When I first got in contact with Alistaire he saw the proposed project incredibly quickly and provided me with a quote similarly quickly.
When the work started the team worked very hard, minimising any damage to any period features and spoke to me every other day to discuss anything that may have cropped up during the works.
I seriously can’t recommend these guys enough. Awesome job, very patient with any questions I had and went above and beyond to help.
I can’t fault Ali and his team. 10/10!
I asked Alistaire from CB1 Property Services to carry out a full survey of the electrics and produce a report , for my Grade 2 listed cottage.
Both Alistaire and his right hand man, Craig were polite, friendly, helpful and most importantly, trustworthy.
They go the extra mile. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to all my friends.
An absolute gem of a company that I’ll be using again soon (just as soon as they can fit me in!).
Thanks so much
Alistaire and his team worked on several projects at our house in January 2018.
They redesigned and renovated a guest wing, bathroom and utility area and also built a deck off our master bedroom.
Their workmanship was exemplary and they were extremely professional.
They started and finished exactly as they predicted and more importantly the house looks wonderful.
Many Thanks Alistaire
We are extremely happy with our bathroom and WC. Alistaire and his team have been brilliant.
Alistaire is approachable, open and committed to his work. We valued being able to talk through our projects every step of the way, Alistaire always made time to help sort the details. The end results are just what we wanted.
A fantastic company, we are already thinking about what we can get them to do for us next!!
CB1 Property Services completely rebuilt three bathrooms for us.
They are extremely professional and very reliable.
The project went smoothly, was completed on time and we are delighted with the results.
Alistaire and his team understood what needed to be done to sort out a difficult problem.
We were very impressed with the communication and planning as well as the range and quality of materials provided.
The job was carried out very professionally and to a high standard. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to our friends and hope to work with him again soon.
Consistently first rate, excellent service with quality outcomes from CB1 Property Sevices. I highly recommend Alistaire as he is honest, reliable and very experienced.
I hired CB1 Property Services to fit a bidet in my bathroom.
Alistaire and his team did an excellent job. Everything was neatly done, even if it wasn’t going to be visible.
The end result was attractive and works well. They were careful not to make a mess outside the room and cleared up completely after they had finished.
It’s rare to find builders who take such care in their work. I would use them again and recommend them.
Very pleased with the work Alistaire and his team carried out, friendly and reliable.
Their quotes are very professional as well as the work carried out, would use again.
We wanted a sturdy new base for 2 sheds in our back garden to fit round an old apple tree. We contacted Alistaire of CB1 Property Services having found their impressive website – which includes a range of different types of jobs carried out, all with very positive feedback.
From the outset Alistaire was very helpful and professional and arranged to visit to see the work required. Alistaire promptly followed this up with a quote for the work and offered a suggested date to carry out the work.
The work was agreed in advance and scheduled, then carried out as agreed even in bad weather. Alistaire, and colleagues Craig and Billy, all worked hard and conscientiously and delivered an excellent job.
Alistaire also came back to carry out a small indoor maintenance job we wanted doing.
The quality of the work was to a high standard and the service was excellent and courteous throughout. From our perspective the whole thing was trouble free, and all at a fair price.
We are very pleased with the outcome.
Thank you very much.
We got in touch with CB1 Property Services with a view to removing our old flooring in our lounge, under stairs cupboard, and hallway, and replacing it with wood. From the outset, things were (strangely enough) actually a pleasure! Alistaire replied promptly, politely, made suggestions, and answered numerous questions from us.
Also, once we’d gotten the relevant details to him, he was able to provide us with, what turned out to be, a very accurate quote — which was great because there were then no cost surprises at all.
On the first day of work, it turned out we had bought some wrong materials for preparing the floor. This could have been a worry for us, but it needn’t have been. Alistaire was very pro-active, phoned local businesses (around Royston), drove to one of them only to discover the quality of their product was not so good (and expensive); and so fetched some from a reliable provider in Cambridge. This was completed without any bother to us, as was the case with the rest of the installation.
Throughout the work, Alistaire and his colleague were communicative and clear and kept us up-to-date with things that might have needed running past us, making sure that there were no surprises, which we were very appreciative of.
Sounds strange to say this (and we thought only people on telly adverts say this kind of thing), but we now are really looking forward to enjoying the rooms much more, and we love the high quality workmanship that was carried out.
In brief, we wouldn’t hesitate to book CB1 Property Services again. They’re just really good.
I recently moved to Cambridge and the previous owner of my house recommended that I contact Alistaire if I needed anything done as I settled in.
Alistaire helped me with changes in lighting, bathroom extractors and decoration, he was always reliable and helpful and I was very pleased with the results. This time he worked with his team from CB1 Property Services and put in a kitchenette to a room so that I could rent it out.
Alistaire has the skill of looking at a problem and finding a way of solving it. He and his team had to bring water and electricity to that area of the house, change doors and then put in the kitchenette producing a good, clean and high quality finish.
I would highly recommend his work.
We asked Alistaire to carry out the refurbishment work on our house after the wonderful job he did of my mum’s bathroom. I’m so glad he did. He was punctual, polite and did an brilliant job, his attention to detail was amazing and ensured we were pleased with everything along the way.
I am thrilled with the work he has done and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. Thank you Alistaire
We hired CB1 Property Services to install a new kitchen in spring, while installing the kitchen we discovered we needed to replace a large area of damaged flooring caused by a historic leak and fix a few other things around the house. It was not an easy job because Alistaire had to identify and fix an historic leak, move heavy and large materials around an awkward access route and work around noisy and dry dehumidifying equipment. Alistaire and his team were completely reliable. They problem-solved at every juncture and were always professional, resourceful and considerate. I’ve recommended CB1 Property Services to friends and wouldn’t hesitate to hire Alistaire again.
I had an unattractive job, restoring the walls under the worktop in a corner of the kitchen, and rear lobby, after a washing machine had slowly leaked for some time. During the dehumidifier treatment, Alistaire kept up email checks and advice, then treated the walls with an antifungal agent before restoring the area to the highest standard, replacing old piping and using waterproof paint.
First let me start by saying that the level of service I received from Alistaire and his team at CB1 Property Services was second to none. The work carried out was done so in a tidy and respectful manner, the likes of which I have not encountered previously from other tradesmen. Alistaire takes real pride in his work and was always happy to answer any queries I had, offering experienced advice where appropriate. There were a couple of times during the installation of the wet room where I changed my mind and Alistaire proved to be extremely adaptable; nothing was too much trouble. The standard of tiling, grouting, plastering, plumbing and electrics is all equally high and attention to detail excellent (I challenge you to find anyone more enthusiastic at applying silicone sealant). I would recommend the services of CB1 to anyone looking to improve on any aspect of their home and can wholeheartedly assure that you will not be disappointed
Alistaire, from CB1 Property Services could not have been more thorough, helpful and professional. The estimate he provided was very detailed and left me feeling confident about exactly what was going to be done and the quality of the materials he would be using.
The standard of Alistaire’s work was superb. His attention to detail was great and the finished bathroom looks amazing. He offered me sound advice about what did and didn’t need replacing and I think CB1 Property Services offered great value for money. I highly recommend Alistaire to everyone.
Alistaire and his team at CB1 Property Services have now completed two projects for us. The first was designing and installing a “built in” wardrobe, complete with sliding doors and fitted shelving. Alistaire was also able to add fitted shelves to one of the walls. This has transformed the bedroom allowing for extra storage and as a consequence considerable more space.
The second project involved a kitchen “revamp”. Alistaire was not only very helpful in advising on the updating of the kitchen appliances, but also reworking existing materials such as the cabinet doors to ensure a consistent finish.
I would highly recommend Alistaire and his team. They provide an efficient and professional service. Work has been completed on time and within budget. Alistaire displays a commendable attention to detail, as well as an impressive range of skills.
CB1 Property Services have just completed the restoration of an Edwardian floor at St Mark’s Church in Cambridge.This involved building scaffolding inside a large organ motor pit, boarding over and tiling.The work was carried out on time and within budget. The craftsmanship and supervision were excellent. We are extremely satisfied with the result
We have just had our bathroom completely demolished and rebuilt by CB1 property Services. The transformation has been superb and we are absolutely delighted with the results, which were achieved on time and on budget. Alistaire and Adam were really helpful in designing and choosing the colour scheme as well as advising on small, but important details. Their workmanship was of the highest standard and they were both a pleasure to have in the house.
We would have no hesitation in recommending them to you.
Alistaire and the team at CB1 Property Services have now carried out work at two properties for me. In all cases it is clear that what separates them from other companies is their personal service and pride in their work. They are fully professional in their quotes, giving extremely useful and practical advice. Work is carried out with complete care and consideration as if the property were their own, always cleaning up fully.
The efficiency in quoting, invoicing and flexibility in making appointments are other great reasons to go with CB1. If you have a busy lifestyle they can work around you and the communication is second to none.
The team have upgraded my heating and are soon to fit a new shower and decorate the lounge. They will certainly be who I call whenever future work needs doing. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them to you
Alistaire has just carried out work to repair damage caused by a leak from the water tank in our loft. Alistaire responded quickly to any communications either by email or phone. We are extremely happy with the work he and his colleagues have carried out and would not hesitate to recommend him to family and friends
CB1 Property Services recently fitted a new bathroom for us and the work was completed to a very high standard. They also completely removed the old one beforehand and made excellent recommendations where changes from the plans were necessary, for example when we discovered that several walls were made of straw! As a result of their skill, depth of knowledge, expertise and attention to detail, we’ve ended up with a beautiful bathroom – much better than the one we’d originally envisaged.
They were also very flexible and happy to carry out the plethora of small jobs around the rest of the house which needed doing, either completing them on the spot or getting them done very soon after.
In addition to the practical side, they were always very prompt when quoting for work and the quotes were very clear, straightforward and very reasonable.
They were also very personable and considerate and created a really pleasant atmosphere during the entire time they were in the house. In addition, they were really really helpful, completely trustworthy, always turned up exactly when they said they would and always cleared up after themselves. Throughout the duration of the works, the disruption was also minimal. Completely professional in all respects.
Overall, I’d have no hesitation in recommending them for any work that needs doing and you should certainly look no further. I’ll definitely be using them for all of my future work.
Alistaire from CB1 Property Services has just finished installing a new bathroom for me. I was most impressed with his professionalism and attention to detail. Completely trustworthy and very considerate, they always cleaned up at the end of the day. I am thrilled with my new bathroom and would not hesitate recommending him and his team to anyone.
Alistaire recently fitted some utility cabinets for us and we found him to be extremely professional, timely, very tidy and the work done was brilliant. He went well beyond the call of duty when the worksurface turned out to be damaged. He communicated with us, helped to find us alternatives and then went and collected the emergency replacement and fitted it in the same day! He also fitted in a couple of other little bits and bobs that needed doing while he was in the house. I would not hesitate to recommend him and we’re planning to work with him again later in the summer.
Alistaire has recently completed a large job for us in Cambridge. He has proved to be an extremely personable, reliable and conscientious worker. He seems to be able to turn his hand to anything whether it’s plumbing, electrical or decorating.. All with considerable skill.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. He is always punctual and clean and tidy, making sure that he leaves everything as he found it. A rarity these days! He works to a very high standard and it was a pleasure to employ him.
Others will testify to CB1’s workmanship, I wish to add to that: Alistaire was responsive to emails and phone calls throughout the weekends – very accommodating to working professionals who cannot be reached during the working day. He was patient during the design process, thoughtful to our concerns and respectful to the house they were working in (bringing their own carpet protector, hoover and removed their shoes to leave the house clean and tidy). Very happy to recommend.
Alistaire at CB1 Property Services did some maintenance work in our kitchen, bathroom and living room in February 2014. After two rather mixed experiences with other craftsman we found ourselves 100% satisfied with the quality of the work as well as Alistaire’s tidyness, punctuality and accuracy in quoting and planning. Five out of five!

I have used Alistaire from CB1 Property Services several times for electrical jobs recently and have been very impressed with his attention to detail. He communicates well and is reliable – something that a lot of builders seem to find difficult. He does a good job for a fare price and I would not hesitate to recommend him. He is also very professional and prompt with the paperwork. He has the whole package and deserves to be successful.
I used to teach Alistaire from CB1 Property Services on his Electrical Installations Apprenticeship Course and for the whole duration of his studies he always strived for excellence. His hands on work and understanding was always very advanced compared to other students at his stage. He has continued to carry on his excellent work and I have seen this as his teacher, a work colleague as an Electrician on Electrical contracts around Cambridge and now as a customer at my Company premises in Sawston, where he did joinery work and Electrical work for me. I will continue to contact Alistaire in the future for any general building services and also recommend him to friends and family.
CB1 Property Services are very reliable especially with dates and times. They are not only pleasant to deal with but exceptionally foresighted, bringing all the necessary materials and re-touching paintwork after electrical work was carried out, they also considered and discussed installations to suit myself personally due to height and age restrictions.
Alistaire from CB1 Property Services has worked with Redmayne Arnold & Harris for the last 12 months. In this time he has proven himself to be friendly, reliable and honest and always completes his work to the highest standards. As an agent, this is exactly what we are looking for. Not only this, he endeavours to improve his service and thinks about what would help us, introducing a diary so we can see when he is available to work. It is incredibly competitive to gain work from a Lettings agent with limited second chances. Alistaire has proven himself time and time again. I would strongly recommend his services and would be happy to talk to anyone considering using him.
CB1 Property Services has done a fantastic job on our bathroom refit. Attention to detail is one of my hobbies and Alistaire coped with this superbly.

Alistaire from CB1 Property Services has completed a series of jobs for us; wiring and lighting work, decorating and maintenance tasks. He has never failed to deliver the highest quality workmanship, he is utterly reliable, and we have no hesitation in recommending him as the best small contractor we have ever used.
CB1 Property Services responded promptly and efficiently when we approached them for electrical work. They listened carefully when we explained what we wanted, offered several suggestions about how to carry out the work, and helped us to decide exactly how to implement it. They did an excellent job, and made a point of minimising the disturbance to our business.
CB1 Property Services has undertaken a number of projects for us in our listed cottage. These have included interior and exterior painting & decorating, leveling a large sitting room floor and boxing in large sections of radiator pipes.

CB1 Property Services has now done a lot of practical work for me, in my shop and my house; Complex joinery, painting and decorating, electrical and most recently the planning and installation of the whole bathroom. All the projects have been completed to the highest standard and cost effectively. The main reason I’ve used Alistaire apart from his unusual level of practical skill and speed is communication, he is willing to patiently work through to the final solution without creating unnecessary stress. He’s born ‘do-er’ and I have no hesitation in recommending his work. You’ll get a good job if you have this fella doing it.
We have worked with Alistaire from CB1 Property Services quite frequently in recent weeks, and have found his work to be of the highest standard. He is extremely responsive, resourceful, and his attention to detail is very impressive. He has also provided us with very complete, well-documented reports outlining the repairs that have been required. We have been extremely pleased with his work.
Planning to have a major floor tiling job done on a large kitchen and downstairs toilet area can be a nervous step when it comes to choosing the right company but from day one when CB1 Property Services started, our concerns quickly evaporated. Alistaire works tirelessly and with great attention to detail to produce a tiled floor of the highest standard after giving us some sound advice and providing much of the materials needed to complete. We couldn’t be more pleased with the result – A stunning kitchen floor to be proud of. Alistaire went on to custom fit and paint a bi – fold door to replace the previous hinged door in the newly tiled toilet, fixed taps, added new lighting features along with a wall heater and made and fitted a sliding door bath panel for extra storage in our bathroom when it became clear there is not much this young man can’t do and do with great skill when it comes to home improvements. We are now able to plan future projects (laminate flooring in our sons bedroom being one of them) with total confidence in their end result.
