General Builders

Dave and team have completed a fantastic refurbishment of my downstairs 1920s house taking an old long alley kitchen and separate living room into one open-plan space with large glass sliding doors, sky lights and installing new kitchen with island. From start to finish I was quoted a fair amount (I had several quotes) and they worked closely with my architect and structural engineer to ensure the project would go smoothly. It was delivered on time and to budget. What really impressed me was that everything they said they would do they did, and anything they thought I could source cheaper they were honest about. They never over-promised and were there every day until the job was done, rain or shine! I ordered a very tricky to install kitchen and they took their time ensuring it was fitted correctly. Cannot fault them and would highly recommend. Whole project took 6 weeks! Very impressed. More...

We are delighted with our new extension which is exactly as we wanted and looks beautiful. There were challenges along the way - undertaking a building project during a COVID pandemic was at times difficult, with delays in supplies and deliveries - but we got there in the end. Happily enjoying the new kitchen now. More...

I'm delighted with the internal renovations that have just been completed, David took the time to listen to what I wanted to achieve and took my ideas on board. The guys always tidied up on a daily basis and that was very important to me as I work from home, I'm delighted with my new living space and would definately use the company again. More...

Initially recommended this company based on initial interactions. Had a couple of discrepancies with the plans which eventually over time got sorted. Submitted the plans which have been rejected because they overhang the boundary line with our next door neighbour. Have then asked if this can be altered so the plans can be resubmitted to be told NO because an alteration has already been done. This was after being told alterations came at no extra cost. This was of course after they had gotten their £700! Conveniently the mobile number doesn’t work, the 0800 number is hung up when answered or rings out and when emailing the company I get the reply “I’m on holiday” and “We’ve done alterations and cannot do anymore”. I strongly recommend that everyone avoids this company AT ALL COSTS if you want to save yourself time, money and stress. I made a mistake, anyone reading this PLEASE DO NIT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE!!!

Hi Jamie, Thanks for your response. I would like to reply with the following. As you have already stated we did do everything you asked for and altered the plans at no extra cost. However when you requested another alteration where you wanted the extension to meet your neighbours we advised aganst it becuase of the potential backlash you may recive from the planners, however you insisted that this is what you wanted, so we made those alterations. if you would like us to redraw the plans back to the original,or similar we would be more than happy to do this for a small nominal fee, I would put a small cost of £150 for this work. Please let me know how you would like to proceed. PS I have been on holiday recently and do not think it is unreasonable to wait for my return to the UK. Dave

Hasn’t completed the work he was contracted to do and has left the site unsafe.

Contracted to knock through from the living room to kitchen, install an RSJ and make good the brickwork beneath the supporting beam. Hasn’t finished this work - brickwork falling out beneath the RSJ, with poor support for the floor above and exterior wall. Has left the site unsafe. We paid him for the work (upon the condition he’d return to complete the job). He then refused to return to finish the job. Has left us in a difficult position, unable to move back into the house with a young kid.

Won’t be recommending him to anyone else and will be reporting him to trading standards. We have asked for a refund.

Hi Beth. Thats not quite correct is it. Your husband asked us to do a partial build as he wanted to keep the costs down and wanted to do a large section of the works himself. He asked us daily what he could do to reduce the bill. Your husband simply tried every excuse possible to not pay. In the end we gave up i believe you cant get blood out of a stone. Some people just dont want to pay for goods and services they order. You still have an outstanding amount of £800 plus. Dave, Andy.Pete and Dion.

Hi Marie. Thank you for your review. Time scale noted, we did complete a lot of extras for you, which you paid for thank you. But extras dont just cause extra payments, they cause extra time. Thanks again. Dave.

Responded first at weekend and before anyone else. Some declined and didn’t respond at all. Sent me quotes within minutes at the weekend. Booked a time slot and came back to me ASAP when I wanted to move forward. Confirmed the appointment and turned up on time and for the time they expected to be here for. Told me I would get the plans within a certain timeframe and delivered. Answered all questions I had and in timely manner too. We’re really chatty, helpful and informative and answered questions when came to quite too. Would definitely recommend. More...

Extremely pleased customer in South Manchester – honest builder and competitively priced.

We found Dave and his team to be honest, reliable, hard-working and a real pleasure to work with on out garage conversion.

We were impressed with the level of communication from Dave and his team throughout the job and also his willingness to go that the extra mile to ensure the job was exactly to our specifications. In the build up to the job commencing Dave was readily available to answer any query we had and was flexible when we changed our designs.

We were so happy with Dave's work and prices that he is commencing on a Sun Room extension to our house in February 2021.

Dave was fantastic to work with, he came round to the house quickly to take measurements and to discuss our requirements. The plans were drawn up and any amendments needed were changed promptly . We are now awaiting for the plans to be approved by the council, but from our experience so far, I would definitely recommend 😀 More...

From start to finish the service was professional and quick and I was extremely happy with the service

Q&As

A full 10 year guarantee comes with our work, and this is not a guarantee where the customer has to pay and then claim back from an insurance company. Its completed and paid for by us.

Completing a project for a customer who has been previously told by others, " that project can not be done" then we go and do it just how they wanted it.

I was annoyed at bosses ignoring customers wishes.

Becuase we are extremely hard working, reliable and very very competant builders.

I can provide advise and Architectural plans remotely,

I myself wear all relevant PPE when viewing projects and so do my employees.
