We value feedback from all our customers. These are some comments made by our satisfied customers.
The first building project Luiz undertook for us at our property in Jete, was to advise and build our water deposit, which was completed as promised and at a competitive price. We then became desperate, having been badly let down after the start of our log house build, by a local English ” builder”! We approached Luiz who agreed to take on and finish the bulk of our house, at an acceptable price, but was honest enough to admit he was not experienced in log house builds!
However he was enthusiastic and suggested many improvements, for which we are very grateful, and after encountering several problems, he overcame them in his usual “no worries” way, including struggling to obtain the completion of materials due for the house. He was also a great help with the connection of services, and installing a sceptic tank. He has advised on several other matters including problems encountered after last season’s storms, concreted our drive and turning platform, and built a series of retaining walls.
He has become a good and helpful friend, trustworthy and reliable, yet also, together with his wife, business-like with his estimates and invoices etc. It’s a comfort to know he will be his cheerful self at the other end of the ‘phone if we have a problem and will do his best to help.
Our thanks to all at Furtado Construccion.Chris & Pat Brocklesby
We bought a plot of 7500m2 with a small house 25m2. As Furtado Construcción / Luiz had built for the seller, it was too small, so it grew to 55m2 with the help of Luiz. The following year we added a swimming pool, and again Luiz was the cheapest and best. Our swimming pool complete with pump filter was ready for summer 2007 thanks Furtado Construcción.
In 2008, we wanted to build an additional 105m2 so the house would be a total of 155m2 – the offer from Luiz was again absolutely the cheapest and best. The house is now completely finished, Luiz is a patient guy, and we have changed the plans without significant expense. We can only recommend Furtado Construcción for anyone seeking planning and building in this area of Spain.

Furtado Construccion renovated and rebuilt our town-house in Itrabo from more or less a ruin to a nice 3-floor all-year-house in only one year. Working together with them, coming up with ideas and finding good solutions, has been a pleasure. They’re skilled, helpful and reliable and provide an excellent service. We can highly recommend Luiz Furtado and his team and will continue to work with them on future projects.Rita & Tore Liverod
Luiz has worked with us on several projects over the past couple of years, including building a new cortijo in Jete and renovating a large village house in Itrabo with a self-contained apartment. The work is always of the highest standard and we appreciate his positive attitude and creative input to design and build options. We will continue working with Luiz and his team in the years ahead and would not hesitate to recommend him.Jane & Iain Stevenson
Renovation of village house (Jete). Luiz was recommended to me by friends who had been renovating a cortijo within the Costa Tropical since 2006. I have a small village house situated within the plaza of Jete which required considerable renovation work. Luiz has provided excellent support from the initial planning and design stage to the point of completion. Luiz has considerable knowledge and experience of local planning requirements and was pivotal to securing all the necessary licenses before commencing work.
As a result of the renovations the house has become a really pleasant living space. Luiz has provided innovative space saving solutions; ensuring the finished design is both practical and aesthetically pleasing. I am very impressed with the standard of work and the excellent level of service I have received during this project.
Many thanks.Nigel Brough
Furtado Construccion built our house to our specified requirements and for a reasonable price. They are also in the process of doing more work for us at the moment and we will definitely use them again in the future.Linda RaneProyect: Casa Montana
They are reliable and the work completed is of a good standard.
My Wife and I first met Luiz in June 2006 and he has been doing work for us ever since. Before this we had experienced both English and Spanish builders locally and found Luiz to have one of the most competitive rates and the most reliable.
One of the first things he did was take us around other properties in the Almunecar area he had been building/working on to show us his standard of work and idea of costs etc which was great and a rare thing in the building trade we have found, we even met with his family. He has already completed a conversion, reform and terrace/pergola for us and we are very pleased with his work. At present he is building a kitchen extension for us before moving on to build us a pool, garage and extend our terrace.
We are very pleased to have met Luiz as his knowledge is invaluable and he is exceptionally helpful with other areas such as building requirements, materials, visits to Jete Town Hall, and a fantastic help with the language!!! Which is making our move out to Spain much easier. We will also be working much more with Luiz in the future on new builds in the area, so look forward to that.
We would like to conclude by saying Luiz and Luiz Furtado Construction are trustworthy, reliable, skilled and provide an excellent service and value so we highly recommend them and thank Luiz and his family.Simon & Christianne MullierProyect: Casa Jardin
Furtado Construction did work for us in the UK putting in a new kitchen and new bathrooms, paving our garden and putting up fencing. Also put in new gutters, soffits and drainage. They also converted a spare room into a study and moved the kitchen plumbing around. Since then he has built us a house in Spain to our requirements and we are extremely happy with all the work he has done so far.Linda RaneProyect: Mossnook & Casa Montana
Luiz Furtado was introduced to us by a property developer in Jete/Otívar who recommended him as a good builder and we were very grateful for this encounter. He took us to see similar projects which he had built so that we had a good idea of what was possible. His prices are very competitive. Luiz solved our request to have a conservatory on the front of our cortijo which we could use throughout the year. He re-modelled the existing structure so that the project wasn t too costly and it is perfect.
He gets really involved with his customers and makes many helpful suggestions, including various methods and price options. He keeps within budget and timescale and always cleans up beautifully at the end of the day.
Because we were very impressed by the personal service that Luiz gave us, we then asked for a number of other additions and alterations new beautified bathrooms, garden steps, a wall adjoining our land with the road, carpentry, deposito etc. All of which were expertly carried out. He is always so cheerful and nothing is too much trouble. His workers too are honest, friendly, skilful and unobtrusive. I would recommend Luiz to you as his attributes are: Honest, reliable, a problem solver, friendly, hardworking.
Thank you Luiz.Jenny & MikeProyect: Casa Águila
