We would like to say a big thank Tony Turner for the wonderful work he has done for us over the past few months. We started with an emergency call to get some water going and the toilets to flush, as English-speaking new owners in France we were concerned on how to get started on the house repairs. Tony stepped up to the mark from day 1 and with reasonable costings got us up and running.

Then took on the major work of rewiring the house in the worst pandemic of our life time. When another contractor let us down, Tony stepped upto the mark again and put a french drain in for us and all the guttering. Then found us a builder for changing a pillar in the downstairs room. He let us know about a leak in the roof and downstairs wall. Nothing was too much trouble and the drive way was done and then the walls all treated and lagged.

All reasonably priced and we always felt that Tony was a trust worthy, honest person with immense integrity. We would recommend him to anyone.

Tony and his team responded very quickly to our need for urgent repairs to two chimney stacks. They were cheerful and expert in working so high up and did the work in double quick time thank goodness. We will certainly call them back to do the remaining three in the Spring.

Bonjour a tous. Je viens de faire renover une toiture par la societe Ouirenovate (M Turner). Tres satisfait du travail effectue, je recommande cet artisant. Vous pouvez lui faire confiance.


Our roof had developed some leaks during summer 2019, so we arranged for Tony to visit the property and prepare a Devis for replacement tiles and addition of a waterproof membrane. He suggested that we consider interlocking tiles as they are not easily disturbed by high winds, and would not expose the roof structure to further risk of water damage.

He was due to start work in early January 2020, but was continuously held back by long periods of heavy rain, then to make matters worse, the Covid19 lockdown was enforced. Finally when he was able to start work he discovered a number of rotten timbers which had to be replaced, creating much extra work and time needed.

Tony was in very regular touch with us, sending many photographs to explain the extent of the damage and work required. He and his team worked regularly, often for many hours until the job was complete, and now the roof is both dry and structurally sound once again, and looks great as well.

Certainly the work cost more than we had anticipated, but Tony was honest and open at all times, and the final cost has still been very reasonable, considering the extra work and materials required. We have been very happy with his work and would be very happy to recommend him.

Oui Renovate has been fantastic with our ongoing renovation projects for our house in the Vienne. We recently had our barn roof replaced and shutters installed. The barn was an especially challenging job, which required thorough planning, skills and experience.

Tony and his team did a beautiful job and kept us informed every step of the way. I would highly recommend Oui Renovate for all of your projects!

We were looking to find a reliable plumber. Tony was introduced to us by friends who had been pleased with the work he carried out for them.

He identified our drainage problem and efficiently solved it. He is a clean and tidy worker and came on the day and time arranged.

A friendly chap. Great service.

Having experienced the extreme heatwave and unable to sleep plus our dogs suffering too, We decided we needed Air Conditioning ASAP.

I searched the Web for a local registered English speaking Tradesman and contacted Tony who came out the following day, Measured up, Quoted and Devis in place

We now have Fitted working Air Con Enabling a good nights sleep and our 2 dogs can CHILL.

Coupled with that he is also taking care of our Rewire and Radiators moved as an add on.

Very Competitively priced and a good guy to do business with helpful and a Fast Response plus covers multi trades


Tony Turner has done four jobs for us on our holiday home in St Romain:-

  • Woodworm treatment of our bedroom ceiling, beams and stairway
  • Fitted a New hot water tank
  • Fitted velux windows in the roof of our barn
  • Put up a partition wall also in the barn

We have found him very reliable and his work is of a high standard. He has a friendly manner and communicates well, in a timely manner.

He has dealt with the Maurie on our behalf to obtain the relevant planning permission when required.

The fitting of the new tank started as a plumbing emergency when our old one was leaking. He came out the same day to isolate and stop the leak, and the following week to fit a new tank.

Good reliable tradesmen are not easily found in France or the UK. I would highly recommend Tony Turner.

Having contacted Tony at Oui Renovate et Chauffage, we were really pleased with how quickly he responded, provided a Devis and agreed a date to commence the work. The work was completed quickly and to a very high standard and we are very happy with the result ....would, and do recommend him for plumbing work to our friends and customers

Thank you so much Tony for completing our plumbing work so quickly and to a result we are both really happy with. We have passed your name on to our friends and customers....we'll definitely be using you again....

Amazing work by Oui Renovate. I recently bought a house in the Vienne and had a variety of things that needed consultation and fixing. Tony and his team thoroughly assessed the issues - they took copious notes and put a cost effective and smart plan in place.

They finished the work ahead of time and did a wonderful job. They also identified a serious issue with my bathroom plumbing and have done a brilliant job in getting it sorted and working again. Additionally, we have decided to renovate another part of the property and Tony has been fantastic with the plans and knowledgeable about dealing with an old house.

Tony and his team know exactly what they’re doing and are so helpful and kind. They have made moving to France so much easier.
