From the quote I got on the phone the price went up £700, and they wanted an addition £200 on that. They wanted cash in hand and requested money there and then per day, they made some rediculous excuse about the information on the website about paying once the job was complete was only valid if you received a 15% discount when you got a quote? ? Actually stood there and made me cry until I paid them more money so they would leave. Told me I was trying to get loads of work done for nothing and I would know that they were a good price if I'd got more quotes (which I did, before the £700 increase they were the cheapest, however in the end they were not, kept saying they were doing me favours, but then used the "favours" to try to get more money out of me. I got multiple complaints from my neighbours about them. I could not wait for them to be out of my life, it's not been at all good for my mental health. I thought the work they'd done was fine at the time, but on closer inspection it is very uneven so I am going to have to get someone else in to finish the job properly once I have saved up some more money. They needed a lot of direction for the work to be carried out correctly. I wouldn't recommend this company, but if you do use them, ensure you get a written quote at the begining detailing exactly what that quote includes and make sure you are there to watch the work they do and ensure it is alright. They wanted me to pay per day, but then one of the days they only worked 3 hours. At least I've learnt a lesson from this experience. More...

They were really friendly and helpful. They knew what they were doing and came when they said they would to concrete our drive. It looks great so far and I’m very excited to see the finished result. Thank you so much More...

Worst company ever. Work not completed correctly. After first day they wanted half of the money. We said will send a bankers draft when completed. They insisted they wanted cash to be able to complete the project the next day. On their web site it states no monies will be asked for until work complete. Artificial grass not laid correctly, block paving not laid correctly. New guttering laid but when we tested it. It's been laid at an angle where the water goes upwards!! Complete shambles. They are aware of the above. More...

Burt came round and gave us a quote. The quote was really reasonable and he gave us sound advice. We were going to use him but our friend who previously didn’t have time rung and said he could fit us in. I would definitely use this company though and will be contacting them when we want our driveway doing later in the year. More...

Roof Repair

Requested a price for a leak in my roof, got put through to a guy called Bert. He was extremely helpful and keen to do the job. He informed me of a standard day price which was reasonably cheep. The reply time was extremely quick and Bert wanted to get the job done ASAP. He also made me aware that they would beat any quote by 15% this month which is very good too. Thanks for your time.

The work ended up being almost a grand over budget. Extra costs all over the place. I had to pester him to come back to actually finish the gate because it was left flapping in the wind with no latch. The workers had total disregard for my neighbours property, damaged their garden furniture and left it on the grass. One of the workers was caught peeing in my neighbours garden despite me explicit telling them to use my toilet or get water/drinks whenever they need to. They helped themselves into and 80 year old ladies property down the row and hooked up a hose without even asking, leaving the gate open when they have a dog. I was getting several messages or phone calls a day from various neighbours with complaints. It was the most stressful job I’ve ever had to witness and took all of the enjoyment out of the project. At least one of the workers was drinking several bottles of alcohol on the job. They didn’t even hid it, they left the bottles on the wall and several others on my front garden under the window. With regards to the job, despite sending pictures, videos and 3D drawings of the plans he still insisted I asked for something different to what was done and refused to finish the edge of the paving unless I paid another 200 quid. He also turned up to my property when I was out and took my left over Indian stone slabs which I’d paid well over budget for. The fencing guy arrived without a drill, I leant him mine only for it to get left outside in the rain and my case of drill bits rusted. This is where it gets interesting. They came back to do some work on my neighbours roof a week later. The workers spilled black gutter paint on my brand new Indian paving which THEY had laid the week before. Instead of telling me they covered it up with their jacket so I wouldn’t notice. They also splashed paint all over my wall when they painted the neighbours drain pipe. To add insult to injury, they were working in the roof whilst drinking JD and coke and bottles of ale. Bert didn’t give a damn, ignored my messages for hours, endangered my safety and the safety of my neighbours. The next day I was contacted by a local business owner around the corner because he had seen the workers carrying sacks of rubble from my property and dumping it behind a community centre. I was absolutely mortified and went to check. Sure enough, there was a huge pile of roof tiles, bits of paving off-cuts, empty sealant bottles and drinks cans. I had even paid for a skip! They work drunk, they sit around doing nothing most of the time, have no respect for anyone else’s property, have a mostly absent manager and even had the cheek to make me write out my own receipts and keep tabs of what I’d paid. He also wanted an extra 60 quid for painting the drainpipe that NOBODY asked him to paint, and as previously mentioned, the painting of said drainpipe resulted in my brand new sandstone patio being covered in oil based black paint! The two workers that did it couldn’t understand me when I told them because they didn’t speak English. The only words I got out of them were “sorry Bro” as they saw me on my hands and knees scrubbing the paving with white spirit. They didn’t offer to help, they just left and never saw them again. Needless to say, I took pictures of everything, including the illegal fly tipped waste and the council were made aware. My neighbours were also mortified when I told them half their chimney stack was currently behind the local community centre. Hire this company if you want to ruin relations with neighbours, potentially open up a lawsuit against yourself for illegal waste disposal or want to be hit with hidden costs. Glad the ordeal is over and they’ll never step foot on my property again. Half the street were making comments about me because they saw people coming from my property dumping rubbish in a community area. It’s a close community and I HATE the thought of people assuming I am a lowlife with disregard for social etiquette. Not worth the stress of hiring this company. A few reviews below also seem to draw on some of these points too. Goodbye. Stay away! (All opinions above are my own.

He was hardly ever there to give guidance to the team and he botched the stairs and used my pebbles for concrete and we had to pay for the materials when Hardcores delivered it. I cannot in good conscience recommend them. More...

Patio Services

He demanded extra payment way over his quote -
apparently the quote for materials for a patio doesn't cover sand and cement! He tried to charge for a second day's labour for what he said would be done in one day because his men couldn't contact him and sat around for a couple of hours waiting for some materials. Following several requests he finally returned after we told him we were not satisfied with the uneven paving slabs. These were rectified a bit but some chipped slabs resulted. We've accepted the job as done as we really don't want to see him again but I would not recommend this company and we found Albert's attitude rather intimidating. More...
