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.

Ray and his team are hardworking and don't stop until the job is done. They built our driveway to schedule and on budget. I was given guidance on material choices and options. They are so tidy! Cleaning the road after every day's work to ensure the neighbours were kept happy! Would always use these guys and recommend to everyone I know.

Ray Aloderson converted a large bedroom into a smaller bedroom & office. He gave excellent advice regarding design and lighting and the work was completed to a very high standard. I am delighted with the results. Also they were clean, courteous & hardworking. Pleasant to be around & prompt. No qualms about leaving them in your house while you are at work. I will definitely be using them again. Can't recommend them highly enough.

Over the last 5 years Ray, his two sons, and the handful of trusted partners they work with for specialist jobs, have completed a full renovation of our house- extension, demolition, kitchen, bathrooms, plastering, tiling, electrics, joinery...there isn’t much they done! Completely trustworthy, they get the job done consulting you every step of the way. The quality of their work is second to none and they work in an efficient and considerate way- making living through the work as comfortable as possible. I wouldn’t use anyone else, and as result of the work on our house I know they have had enquiries from several neighbours

From receiving the initial competitive quote to the competition of the work, Ray, Roy and Liam have been polite and professional. Throughout the job, they arrived on time and managed the other trades well, ensuring that the work progressed as planned. When unexpected jobs cropped up, Ray discussed the necessary work and agreed a price before proceeding, written quotes were always provided for my records. They kept the area as tidy and ensured not to inconvenience us. The work was completed to a high standard. My neighbours have been pleased with their approach, with one contacting them to quote for work. I would not hesitate to use ABC again for any future work and recommend them wholeheartedly.

We contracted Alderson Building Company for an extension to our church, I would highly recommend them anyone. They are a credit to the industry, they finished ahead of schedule and to an extremely high standard. When submitting their quote they did'nt hide any costs. Even when we did have additional costs they worked with us to get the best possible result. Helpful, polite, clean and tidy and a joy to have on the premises. The other tradesmen they brought to sight were top class.

We have used ABC builders for several building jobs, including a rear extension, new guttering and a garden wall. Most recently they have re-pointed our chimney. They always arrive on time, are friendly, but not demanding and use good quality products. They clear up every day without fail. We would certainly recommend them to anyone.
