Good professional work.
Customer Service
We had some re-rendering undertaken in an awkward to reach position. Gary Mitchell of Balance and Co has considerable experience of building trades and coordinated the scaffolding and rendering well and ensured that the workmen took care to protect other parts of the building and were respectful of our home. Gary was helpful and easily contactable throughout. We might have got a cheaper price to complete the work from elsewhere but I am pleased that we chose him for this work because of the knowledge, experience and integrity that he demonstrated.

Bedroom renovation - very pleased with the results
Customer Service
Balance and Co quoted to totally re-plaster a bedroom, moving/replacing electrical sockets, boarding, plastering a new ceiling and securing and boarding over the old floorboards. They also replaced coving and skirting boards and fully painted the room. All work was carried out to a high spec. All trades turned up exactly as expected on time and worked straight through. As an example, when we were expecting the plasterer at 09:00, a plumber turned up 15 minutes earlier to disconnect the radiator. Very good project planning, especially as they had to work around a bedroom wardrobe fitting companies work schedule. Gary turned up regularly to inspect the work. It was good to have that point of contact. Gary would also respond promptly to any query we encountered - normally our decision to add to the initial project. We have several other projects planned and will definitely be using Balance and Co. Highly recommended.

Retaining Garden Wall
Customer Service
Our front garden retaining wall had cracked and was starting to lean forward. When the company attended to give the estimate they advised us what needed to be done, and why, and answered any questions relating to this. Balance & Co took down the existing wall, removed bushes and excavated to below the existing foundation to provide room for another concrete block reinforcement wall. Then built new concrete block wall and rebuilt brick wall with drainage points. All this work was carried out to a high standard and every day all debris was taken away and the site left safe. We are very pleased with the finished result. The wall looks as good as new (in fact better) and the site was left clean and tidy. The final invoice was as per the written quote. All tradesmen involved were professional, polite and obviously experienced. I would definitely recommend this company.

Building a garden wall including footings and final rendering.
Customer Service
An excellent service provided by Gary and his team. We could not be happier from the installation of the footings, building the wall, through to the final rendering all of which matches our neighbour's walls perfectly. We will definitely be contacting Balance & Company for any future work we may need and would highly recommend.

New utility room
Customer Service
We have just had our old garage made into a utility room by BALANCE and Company. We couldn't be happier with the way the work was carried out. The price was agreed and stuck to. We had electricians, builders, heating engineers and plasterers attend and all were polite and very professional. They started on time at 8.30am and did a full days work, taking away all rubbish and leaving area tidy when leaving. The finished work was of a very high quality and we will be using this company for future works.

Replacement Patio
Customer Service
We have just had our decrepit old patio replace by this company. This is the third time we have used them and find them reliable, honest, cost-effective and pleasant to deal with. When finding a good builder like this, why go elsewhere. He helped us chose the paving, surrounding wall materials and coping stones and his men completed the job efficiently and were more than helpful in shifting benches and pot plants to other locations whilst they carried out the work, clearing up perfectly after they finished each day ending in a perfect new patio.

Once again excellent work.
Customer Service
This was the 4th time we have employed this company & as usual they have done a first class job, it is always a pleasure to have them at our property. This time it was to repair the roof & install new gutters & facias plus install a new step.

Seamless quality
Customer Service
I highly recommend Balance and Co. and would happily use them in the future. Gary Miller has an exceptional team which he deploys so efficiently that no time is wasted and all aspects are dovetailed ; skip,electrics, gas,deliveries,plasterer,painter,aftercare ! Work is high quality and his team are friendly and professional. Each day they arrived on time and in good humour. They just got on with the job and worked extremely hard. Despite the tricky bits they never complained and used their expertise to resolve snags. They consult during the works and will go that extra to ensure customer satisfaction. My kitchen was finished on schedule and after each task along the way they tidied up ! I was most impressed.

Renovation of bedroom, bedroom cupboard including door, and replacing 4 doors and frames upstairs
Customer Service
Renovation of daughter's bedroom removing existing units, plasterboard to ceiling, plastering all walls and ceiling, painting, fitting of fanlight, and putting shelving in the cupboard. Also, removal of 4 doors and frames upstairs and refitting new doors and frameworks which were then painted. Work was carried out on schedule and at the agreed quote. All tradespersons were friendly with good communication and very efficient. and professional. All work was carried out and completed to our satisfaction as we envisaged it. We are planning for this company to undertake more work at our home once the current climate is under control. The company promised our daughter would be in her bedroom before Christmas, which promise was kept.
