We have a lovely villa in the Gulpinar area of Dalyan, Turkey. Last year we decided it was time for a change with regards to our maintenance company. Yusuf & Amy Toprak came highly recommended to us & they took over our maintenance in June 2016. This consists of (the up keep of the Garden, cutting the lawn/pruning the trees, sweeping & up keep of driveways. Daily Pool maintenance. Organising cleaning the villa & monthly internal inspections.
We find them to be very professional, friendly & trustworthy. I have no hesitation in recommending them. Rest assured your second home is in good hands and the worry is definitely taken away!
The owners of the Fire Opal complex in Dalyan put out a tender for a quote to three local companies on painting the perimeter wall inside and out and the small bedding walls inside the complex (see pictures). We also asked for the decking to be rubbed downed and vanished twice with high quality Hickson vanish. Yusuf and his team at Toprak Services got the contract after being highly recommended by other expats living in Dalyan.
We were not disappointed they did a great job. The owners of the apartments were very happy with the quality of his work and how reasonable and fair his price was. Some of the owners even had the exterior and interior walls on their own apartments painted and varnished. We wish them all the success in the future and would not hesitate in giving them work in the future.
Yusuf and his brothers did some external work to our house and our neighbours' property after they were recommended to us by a friend. They patched and repaired our neighbours' property and painted both buildings. They were very friendly, efficient and worked hard. The finished job looks great and we are all very pleased. We would most definitely recommend Toprak Services.
Fantastic job!! Yusuf and his brother painted throughout our home. They were efficient, reliable, & took great care, using dust sheets throughout and clearing everything away at the end of the job. Nothing was too much trouble. They worked hard. We are really pleased with their workmanship and would highly recommend their services.
Last year I had my villa exterior and grillwork repainted and the woodwork revarnished by Toprak Services. The work started on the day requested and was done quickly and efficiently. The price was very reasonable and I would not hesitate to recommend Yusuf and his team.
Debbie and Kirk would like to thank Yusuf and his brothers for the work they do around our villa. They have painted, installed new metal railings and tended to the trees. I am a perfectionist and like things done right. They do a fantastic job, use the best products, NO cheap paint, NO spills of paint, and always clean and tidy. NO bodging, trustworthy and very competitive on prices. If you want a job doing right Yusuf is the man. I would not use anyone else. Thank you for all the good work you have done. I would highly recommend them and will continue to use them in the future.
Firstly, I must state that Yusuf Toprak is married to my daughter Amy of Amy's bar fame. Having said that, since we all moved into my villa in Gulpinar in April 2015, he has transformed my garden. It was in a very neglected state when we moved in as the previous owner lived in England and was not there to make sure it was looked after. The garden consisted of small pebbles which may have looked good when new but weeds had penetrated the membrane underneath and the whole thing was starting to look shabby and overgrown.
I am delighted to say that Yusuf eagerly took it in hand and when I had a pool installed the following year he carefully kept oversight of the project. I now have a garden to be proud of. I have one of the best lawns that I have seen in the town which is not surprising given the amount of mowing and spraying that he does. He has put in fruit trees such as lime, cherry, and orange to go with the traditional olive, pomegranate and lemon trees that were already there and he is constantly tending and pruning them. He and Amy have for some time now been maintaining my pool and I know if I think of anything that needs doing that they have already anticipated it and it is well in hand.
Finally I can echo what others have said about his painting skills as he has decorated in and out for me and always uses good quality materials. He has bricked over an outside door to make the sitting room more user friendly and I have never seen plastering done so quickly and accurately. He can call on his brothers if he needs help with bigger projects and they are lovely hard-working, respectful, and highly skilled builders, plasterers, and decorators who are capable of very high quality workmanship.
Yusuf speaks and understands English very well and my daughter, Amy, is fluent in Turkish which means she can quickly explain any finer points when communicating with people from the UK. Of course I am biased, but my house and garden is evidence enough to enable me to recommend Yusuf, and of course Amy, without reservation to anyone who needs anything from the simplest to the trickiest work on their home and garden.
