I purchased my first property in 2020 which needed a lot of work to be brought up to date. I had not hired a builder before and was finding it a little difficult. However Ray turned up promptly and advised me on the project, telling me what I needed to consider before an accurate quote could be produced. Based on his feedback I put together a more detailed plan and asked him to come back. He produced a quote which was fair and detailed and committed to getting the work started quickly. A lockdown was announced on the evening the work started which was unfortunate as the old kitchen had been removed that morning! Ray kept the team separated from the rest of the property, organised their own routes in and out and handled all their own refreshments. He also managed the procedures and bubbles for other trades who were needed so everyone felt secure. I was very grateful that this was managed professionally so that work could continue and my family wasn't left without a kitchen for months. I am very happy with the finished work, any extras were discussed and agreed as they arose and so the final bill contained no surprises. I was especially pleased that the work was done so quickly and that Ray project managed everything from unexpected issues with the kitchen supplier, to the additional trades and Covid restriction.

After doing a great job for us on some small internal alterations a few years ago we asked Ray and his team to complete a big project for us this year. We had our conservatory knocked down and a single-storey extension built in its place, plus a significant number of internal alterations which required numerous steel beams and associated construction. Once again, we are delighted with our finished renovation. Ray and his team worked with us for four months and were extremely thoughtful with regards to our living conditions and of those around us. They left the house spotless every day and our neighbours all commented on how considerate they were on the street throughout. They completed the project within the time scales they’d estimated and even completed a few extra bits that we’d identified along the way. Ray, Roy and Liam are a pleasure to have around the house. They are genuinely nice guys who take real pride in what they do which is demonstrated in the quality of their work. Their pricing is very fair for the quality of work they produce and we wouldn’t hesitate to use them again for any future projects.

I needed two boundary walls built with bespoke fencing, I had general ideas of what I wanted, but had great advice From Ray, which gave us a Far better result. Being happy with the first project I asked the team to lay a difficult patterned slate patio, again really pleased. They listened to what I said, and gave me what I wanted. Happy to send photos if needed.

Following a great job building our extension (reviewed at the beginning of the year), Ray and his team have completed an en-suite shower room for us. The work was once again carried out to a high standard, and we are delighted with the result.

Too busy to quote for my job.
I contacted Alderson Building Company on the 12th of June 2020 and booked an appointment for the following Monday for a visit. The gentleman turned up and even called before he came out which I appreciated. I spent around 45 minutes discussing my needs and the access issues and measuring up was then done. I was advised it would be around a week for a quote which I was okay with however, after waiting over a week I received a text message advising me that they had had an influx of work and were unable to even provide me with a quote. I deliberately searched for a company through the Which? site and made an effort to look at reviews to get a decent company however I am disappointed and am no further forward than I was 2 weeks ago.

Ray and his 2 sons, did a fantastic job building our kitchen extension. We are delighted with the quality and standard of their work. They kept to the schedule, and despite some bad weather finished when they said they would. They were also very thoughtful and practical in offering solutions to any problems which arose. Their qualities were also reflected in the trades they used, and their friendliness and ease of approach meant the 3 months of disruption to our kitchen were as pleasant as they could be. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them.

After using Ray and the team on my extension, I was pleased that they were chosen for our extension at preschool. They built an extension to house toilets, sinks, a cupboard and washing machine. We are so pleased with the outcome. Ray also donated a kids size dumper truck and digger for the children to play with. Thank you.

Ray and his team built our single storey extension which also included a new sideway access and garden boundary upgrade. The work was carried out on time and on budget. The team were on site every day and the quality of work was excellent. We have also used their services for smaller renovations to other parts of our property and their quality of service and workmanship are first-rate.

Ray and his team built an extension and fitted my kitchen. They were reliable and worked efficiently. They always tidied up after themselves and I was able to trust them to do the job as expected. Ray communicated well and talked to me about decisions that needed to be made. There were no hidden costs. I would recommend him and his team.
