Over the last 3 years we have used Derek and his team for a major house renovation project which has included 2 large extension re-builds, a complete renovation throughout the interior of the house with a new kitchen, new en-suites and main bathroom, windows, doors, stairs and more. We have been absolutely delighted with the approach, the quality and finish, the general workmanship and Derek’s interaction with us throughout the whole process. We would unfailingly recommend Derek and his team.
Derek is an extremely knowledgeable builder and his expertise has guided us through the requirements, the things to consider, regularly reporting on status, recommendations, budgets and costs and what was to come at each stage of the build(s). The whole process was more challenging as, during the build, we lived 300 miles away. However Derek was always available, responded to any queries as they arose and as commitments were made they were always met. His unfailing good humour and bonhomie helped throughout the process and made Derek and his team a real pleasure to deal with. As the work progressed we built very high levels of confidence in quality of all the work that was undertaken.
Derek employs a top class team of builders and workmen together with a network of related trades (like plumbers, electricians) which he can engage as required. Without exception everyone we interacted with was a delight, their attention to detail, pride in what they were doing and the finish they produced was professional and always top class.
Derek is just about to start the final stage of the work on the house and build a large cantilevered patio area in the garden – and we had no hesitation in ensuring that Derek and his team were engaged for the work.
