Ed works for me as and when I need him on a sub contract basis. I’d say he’s done work for me over the last 2 years now. Not once has he let me down. He always turns up on time and he’s a really hardworking guy. He’s helped me out a lot. On some occasions he’s brought other guys in with him when I’ve been trouble on a job. Ed actually learned how to tile in Italy and that’s were tiling originates from so the quality of his work is to a really high standard. I can also leave Ed to work unsupervised, he’s trustworthy and honest. He’s a polite and friendly guy, I’d definitely continue to use him. In fact I’ve got another job coming up for him in a weeks time.

I had 10 sqm that needed tiling and I had 600 x 600 quartz tiles – which mostly needed cutting. Simon’s workers pulled it off, they did a good job, they had good machinery, were all nice and friendly, worked hard and even cleaned up after they finished. I would recommend them to everyone and I look forward in working with them again in the future on another project. Thank you Simon.


Ed tiled 9 bathrooms for the apartments I own. He came in evenly priced, and he is a small outfit which i preferred to work with as I had more confidence that he would be available and I would know it was him that would be working for me and not some other stranger a contractor would have got in. I prefer it that way, so you know who your dealing with. His attention to detail, along with the quality of the products he used was very good. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.


I can confirm that we have worked with Ed Simon and Simon A Contractors for over six months.
They have carried out a number of projects for us including a hotel in Putney, retail projects including Body Shop stores and most recently a large project at Gatwick Airport. The project at Gatwick Airport was particularly challenging as it involved the fit-out of a new restaurant/bar, Airside in the South Terminal. This involved going through Airport security on a daily basis to get to the work area. The project spanned an 8 week period on site and included a large floor area with an intricate pattern laid in 200x200mm tiles. There was also a large quantity of wall tiling to complete. Ed and team completed the works to a very high standard and the feedback from our client was very positive. Ed has always been a joy to deal with and has gone the extra mile for us when required. He has also always provided requested documentation efficiently. We would have no issues with using them on future projects.
