Small job, great work!
Customer Service
The end piece of our roof guttering fell off in the recent storms. I found Tony Ward's name (and reviews) on this website and called him. He quickly gave me a quote and arranged for someone (a very friendly person) to come and do the work a few days later. The job was done to the agreed budget fast and well, and we're very pleased with it. Communication was excellent throughout. I will contact them in the future for other jobs I have in mind. Highly recommended!

Great help as always
Customer Service
I had a blocked sink and thought it was a major job but they soon resolved the problem by connecting the outside pipe back to the drain. This is the second small job they have helped me with recently and plan to get their help in the summer with my outside paintwork. Always helpful and friendly.

Excellent work and highly professional.
Customer Service
Very happy to recommend Tony Ward. This was my first ever property purchase and never used a building contractor before. Mine is a Victorian terraced house and work included a knock-through between living and dining rooms; almost whole house being re-plastered; rewiring most rooms; new radiators, architrave, coving, skirting boards, painting ceilings and so on. An intimidating prospect for a first timer like me (and someone who can't put up a shelf). As a member, found Tony's details and previous recommendations on Which? and very glad too. Tony and his first class team did a fantastic job with lots of high quality work. He's also very good and patient about adjusting the job if I changed my mind about my initial ideas, which I did occasionally. And most helpfully, he ensured I was regularly kept fully briefed about running costs and budget so there were no unexpected surprises at the end. A very professional job all round. And a great team of guys to work with.

A tricky job delivered very professionally by a very reliable team
Customer Service
A waste pipe leaking from our upstairs bathroom was in a difficult position to access for repair - so much so that we had been let down by several contractors including one recommended by our Insurance company! After many months we began to wonder if it would ever be fixed. Then I finally found Tony's company via Which Trusted Traders - he came round, assessed what had to be done and within a week had arranged for scaffold to be set up along the side of the house and had the necessary repair done to a very high standard. Then other members of his team completed the redecorating work required inside the house due to the original water damage - again to a very high standard and our agreed specification. Tony would visit during the work and on completion of each phase to ensure everything was going to plan and to our satisfaction. Price was as agreed in advance and the work was done with as little disruption as possible, very clean and tidy. We would recommend him for any general building/maintenance work and will certainly be using him again.

Quick service and a pleasure to deal with
Customer Service
I needed some guttering repairs. Tony and his team provided a quotation quickly, and the work was completed efficiently. During the work, Stuart took loads of pictures so I could clearly see what work had been done, and what the problems were. I would certainly use A P Ward building services again. Recommended.

Thank you Chris for your review.
No job too big or small
Customer Service
AP Ward fitted a new bathroom for us in Sep 2018 and we were very happy with their work. This morning, a screw within the shower door came loose and a glass panel was hanging off precariously. I called Tony and within 2 hours he had someone come round to fix it, which was great service and much appreciated.

Excellent work, stress free for us
Customer Service
We have used A P Ward on two recent occasions for work on our bathroom. The first was an insurance job to replace a leak-damaged floor and install a new cistern and tiles. We were very pleased with the friendly and efficient handling of the job by Tony and the high quality workmanship by his colleague Martin. We were impressed enough to commission some further work, re-sealing a shower tray and basin. Pricing was fair and open for both jobs. Promises on timescales were kept and everything was left clean and tidy. Definitely our go-to builder for future projects and I have no hesitation in recommending the company.

Excellent work - efficient and tidy
Customer Service
I had some remedial work required on a porch and Tony's team proved an excellent choice to undertake it. Quality of work was excellent and they turned up on time and left the impacted area clean and tidy when they left. Communication was excellent and I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Reliable, polite and super efficient.
Customer Service
Once again AP Ward has come to the rescue. I cannot recommend Tony and his team highly enough. I have had repairs carried out on one of my chimney stacks and surrounding roof area and air bricks installed in bedrooms. No time wasting or mess. Very fair prices and no hidden costs. I will continue to use AP Ward. An extremely helpful, friendly and honest company.

Honest, reliable, highly capable and friendly.
Customer Service
We had used Tony and his team a few years ago for a couple of jobs and were highly satisfied. Over the past 2-3 months we needed a few more jobs done ranging from gas fire maintenance/checking, carpet fitting, plumbing and tiling and again we were definitely NOT disappointed with them. No job was too small. They discussed and explained everything before proceeding - helpful and transparent. They met our timing requests with ease. Everything was done really well and all finished before Xmas. We are extremely happy with all the work done. In particular I would like to thank Tony and all his team as they were great with my elderly mother and she felt at ease with them all. Definitely highly recommend.
