Great wotk on Shower and Kitchen
Customer Service
I have used A P Ward a number of times over the last 5 years including redecorating of bedroom, modern loft access installation and re-roofing of house. The most recent job being re-damp-proofing the shower and placing an airbrick in the kitchen. I can say that all jobs have been done really well and AP Ward are a pleasure to interact with. Simply put, they are my go-to builder when I need something done.

Range of handyman tasks
Customer Service
I have used AP Ward's services for several years for a range of work. It is fairly priced to reflect the quality and professionalism of the work, which is very important to me and provides peace of mind. I was delighted with Karl's work; it was like magic to have these jobs that had been building up cleared so well so quickly! I would not hesitate to recommend AP Ward and was thrilled that Tony was able to arrange for Karl to carry the work out so soon.

Best builders in Beckenham!
Customer Service
We had been in touch with Tony throughout the process of purchasing our house asking his advice about possible future building plans. Even before taking him on for the jobs he was so helpful, knowledgeable and generous with his time and expertise. Once we met Tony and discussed the project (turning a two-bedroom back into a three-bedroom along with installing a fitted wardrobe and all associated decorating and electrical works) we were in no doubt his company was the best in the business and we were so delighted with the works once completed. Tony, Paul and David were extremely courteous and professional and took great care of our home whilst we were away and works were conducted. We would recommend AP Ward to anyone and everyone! A professional, highly skilled building firm who turned our house back into a three-bedroom again and created beautiful bedrooms for us and our two young children. Any future works needed, we know who to call.

Install Electric Shower
Customer Service
A P Ward installed a new electric shower for me when mine stopped working. Kieron arrived on time and carried out the work quickly and efficiently; and left the work area clean and tidy. I have used A P Ward for a number of jobs and would not hesitate to recommend them.

Installation of patio (drainage, dampproof course, substrata and tiling works)
Customer Service
Tony made a very good impression at the first meeting. He listened carefully to my requirements, which required special handling of the tiling in particular. Unglazed terracotta is very porous and needs special, longwinded, applications for grouting and protection. The old patio had to be removed, damp proof course installed, hardcore reinstalled, some drainage replaced and the manhole repaired. The concrete was reinforced with metal mesh and metal fibres to provide a long-lasting base for tiling that should avoid water ingress from the ground as much as possible. There was a lag between base installation and tiling because of the approaching winter and then rain, but also because I became ill and cancelled twice at very short notice. The latter should ideally not be done because it will likely be a serious inconvenience for the builder's planning. Tony was very understanding and helpful, and we managed to get the job done eventually. The tiling itself was complicated because the tiles were of a different hue, and needed extra care with placing. They were also 2 cm thick and required several applications of protector with extra drying time in between. Tony and his team, Karl, Martin and Kieron are very pleasant people. Even hitches were easy to resolve. They have been absolutely reliable. I was impressed with how tidy they left the place, not just at the end but in between. A.P. Ward is definitely the go to builder in my address book.

Bathroom works
Customer Service
I had some work done in my bathroom, new shower screen, new bath panel, sealant removed and replaced, new shower accessories. Karl and Kieron did a great job and I am delighted with the result. This is the first time I have used Tony and his team and have now asked Tony to do two other jobs for me. Communication is excellent and the final cost was as quoted.

Extremely competent and high standard of work
Customer Service
We have used AP Ward extensively over the past few years for jobs ranging from the large (completely redoing kitchen and bathroom), medium (soundproofing small bedroom), to small (removing rubbish and fixing gutters). At each turn, we have been impressed by Tony and team's high standard of work and dedication to resolving any issues that arose during or after completion. Tony is extremely approachable and knowledgeable and gave us great insights for all aspects of the various projects. He has provided very thorough and fair quotes for the standard of work and during/ aftercare service. Timelines were very tightly stuck to. As first homeowners, we don't know where we would have been without Tony and the team having been stung a couple of times with sub-standard work from other traders. Thanks a lot, Tony!

Fixed guttering
Customer Service
I was extremely pleased with the work done to fix my guttering. It is sometimes difficult to get anyone to come for the ‘smaller jobs’ so was thrilled with the speed of service offered. The workmen were prompt and courteous. I have used this company before and fully intend to use again.
