Would give 0 stars if there was an option! We feel totally ripped off. Ben took £800 from us as a deposit for the job. Due to renovations Building Regs required us to have fire doors fitted. We specified the make and style to Ben. After taking a week of annual leave from work he wasted 2 of those days by making pathetic excuses not to turn up. When he eventually did arrive he brought cheap, nasty flimsy doors which obviously weren't fire doors although he insisted they were. He fitted a couple of doors appallingly. ....packed out the hinges with folded cardboard, screws were wonky, etc. Googled the code on the doors to find that they were £25 doors (not fire doors). We've lost our £800 with no chance of getting it back. Ben should be ashamed of himself. He is a conman! So much for vetted, reputable tradespeople on My Builder! Looking at various review sites on the internet he's done this to numerous people, all hard working families who can ill afford to lose this money.
We learnt the hard way that Ben Gallagher, who lives in North Leeds, is a con artist and a cow boy builder, please avoid him at all costs. Ben took over £1000 from me and my wife as a deposit for a joinery job on our house. The deposit, we were told, was to pay for materials but after seeing him trying to use recycled wood I contacted the supplier he was using myself who informed us that Ben had not paid them. Ben lied to us repeatedly, didn't turn up when he said he would and tried to con us out of further money in the process. When it came to light he wasn't going to do the work he stopped answering his phone and is now trying to seek a IVA so it is unlikely we will ever get our money back in full. We are a young family and he has stolen our hard earned savings as well as countless other families.
