Excellent work - unmatched quality in bathroom build
Customer Service
We had the pleasure of working with Balance & Company Essex Limited in May for our bathroom renovation, and we couldn't be more thrilled with the results. From start to finish, the experience was nothing short of exceptional. Garry, the owner, was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. He is a pleasant person to deal with, always approachable and ready to address any concerns or questions we had. What truly set Garry apart was his flexibility. Among all the builders we contacted, he was the only one who agreed to take on our project before the birth of our baby. Without his commitment and willingness to accommodate our timeline, we would still be without a proper bathroom. The team from Balance & Company demonstrated the utmost respect for our home. They worked diligently without causing any disruptions and ensured that they did not leave any mess behind. Their attention to detail extended to their cleanup efforts, leaving our home just as tidy as it was before they began. One of the most impressive aspects of working with Balance & Company was the accuracy of their invoicing. There were no unexpected charges or added extras; the final invoice was exactly as quoted. This transparency and honesty in their dealings are highly commendable and gave us great peace of mind. We highly recommend Balance & Company Essex Limited to anyone in need of a reliable and quality builder. Their professionalism, dedication, and quality of work are unmatched.

Repairing Garage Inspection Pit
Customer Service
The work was to fill in the inspection pit that had partially collapsed. They professionally reviewed the damaged pit and detailed the required work (draining the pit, filling it with hardcore and topping with concrete). The work was carried out in a professional manner and the site was left tidy. The staff were amiable and fitted into our situation. This was the second time that we had used them and were not disappointed.

Very satisfactory experience
Customer Service
We were very pleased with the work carried out by Balance & Co. We had a detailed quote before the job commenced and once accepted the work started without delay. The work was carried out in a professional and efficient manner, the builders were competent and friendly, and the site was left in a tidy condition when the job was completed. Any small problems were dealt with immediately and satisfactorily.

Great job
I contacted Gary about a potentially tricky job of replacing a wooden wall plate above my kitchen window which was thoroughly rotten. Gary assessed the job and told me what to expect from the start. His team were polite and courteous, pin-pointed exactly what needed doing (we weren't 100% sure of what to expect until facia and tiles had been removed) and completed the job professionally (taking photo's from start to finish). Can highly recommend.

Various work carried out. Brilliant Company.
Customer Service
We have used this Company from approx 2018 initially 1 new floor (I could see the air bricks from inside, as floor had dropped ). His knowledge and straight talking put my mind at rest now recently 2 x New Floors, Electrical works, Room decoration, External work to house and just recently 1 x large flat roof re felted. This company has never let us down. All of his workmen very polite, know their stuff. Are on time. Always tidy up after works completed. We have never had any issues with work carried out. After using him for first time, he said any problems after work carried out, is his problem not ours!! Would definitely recommend his Company. Brilliant.

Excellent Job
Customer Service
Had them out before and they put in a window previously which was excellent. This time round was to put some wallpaper in for me in a real tight spot in the downstairs toilet, and also did the bedroom wall which was completed fantastically. Not an easy job and other traders didn't want to do it but they completed to satisfaction.
