Testimonials

John was recommended to me for the organisation and overseeing of contractors carrying out renovations to my property following water ingress. John handled everything from start to finish in the most professional manner and to the highest of standards. John also uses the best contractors who also have very high standards and are very skilled and trustworthy. It was a privelage having a John as my surveyor and I would definitely recommend him too. Thanks John.

After my house suffered damage arising from a vehicle crash (caused by an uninsured driver), I made a claim through my buildings insurance. The claim was disputed from the outset by my insurers. Eventually (and to make matters worse) the problems were compounded by my insurer’s appointed builder carrying out unsatisfactory remediation work, without any regard for care and attention.

I called in Evalue8 to obtain an independent, professional opinion on the workmanship. Mr Gillott was very reassuring at such a stressful time. He inspected the affected areas thoroughly and provided a report of clear and sensible advice, itemising the deficiencies couched in terms a lay person could understand.

This was particularly helpful and enabled me to present a coherent case to the Ombudsman and my insurer.

We were badly hit by the Boxing Day floods of 2015. We had no idea what to do with regard to our insurance let alone contract out the repair work. Fortunately, Barb found John's website online and made contact with him.

We are so grateful to John for his attention, expertise and bulldog attitude in dealings with our insurer. He was a wonderful ally and always had our best interests at heart. We honestly do not know how we we would have managed without him. He saved us thousands of pounds and ensured all work was done to the highest standard.

We could not recommend him highly enough. Thank you so much John.

Our home was flooded on Boxing Day and we were devastated. We are in a development of 16 homes and as such were part of a group insurance. However we were not happy with how the claim was being handled by our property management company so we opted out of the group claim and went to John for his professional help. Needless to say we were one of the first to settle and we are satisfied he maximised our claim to be able to reinstate our home properly and to a good standard.

Since our payment arrived we have had several neighbours asking for Johns contact details who are struggling with the loss adjuster and still haven't been able to settle their claims. Thank you for all your help John.

Eastwood Spiritualist Church was let down with rogue builders taking all the money and leaving us with nowhere to Worship. Mr John Gillott MRICS MCIOB was contacted and in no time we were in the building taking services. We immediately felt trust in Mr Gillott and it has proved to be the best outcome for the community of Eastwood Spiritualist. Mr Gillott works professionally, knowledgeably with calmness and I would recommend him for any project.

Mrs Hibbert

Professional, knowledgable and courteous service, from initial assessment of damage caused by flooding, right through to overseeing the completion of remedial work by the contractors.

Mr Mcclory

I would have still been trying to fight my corner without your assistance and experience. My home was flooded and you came along and managed the whole process including negotiating with the Loss Adjuster, managing the building contract, and ensuring that I was also fully compensated for my loss.

Mr A Cameron

I was at a complete loss of what to do when I recently started a loft conversion. Halfway through construction I found out I needed a party wall agreement, which I had never heard of before!
Fortunately I was recommend John by another landlord when I explained my plight.

John was the consummate professional from beginning to end and I would no hesitation in using his services again or recommending him to other people.
