Exactly what I wanted
Customer Service
I’d approached a couple of companies who didn’t want to quote. Then I saw Balance & Co in a trustedtraders leaflet so called them. Gary said he’d quote and came out the next day. He booked me in for 6 weeks time but then had a window straightaway. Job done well. No fuss. Exactly what I wanted. Really happy. Good to know they do all types of building works. Would use again.

Fencing work
Customer Service
We have used this company before and the quality of work is excellent.This time it was to demolish and replace 10 fence panels with concrete posts and gravel boards. Work was completed to very high standard, on time and on budget. Would not hessitate to recommend company to others and we will be using again when occasion arises.

Good value work completed well and very quickly
Customer Service
Contacted Ray at Balance via email to ask for a quote for some electrical sockets to be supplied and installed in our garage. Got a quote the same day and the work was completed in a socially distanced, safe way two days later. The electrician was friendly, considerate, efficient and left no mess. Ray was happy to invoice for the work following completion, and made sure that we had contact details and a clear invitation to get in touch if there were any problems with the work at any future time. Balance will definitely get a call from us for any future projects, big or small that we need taken care of at home

Extremely professional builder
Customer Service
I called in Balance and co for an emergency repair to my main roof, which they promptly made safe. Gary then took me through my options and I decided the best option was a complete new roof. The work was carried out very professionally and the workmanship was of excellent quality. Because of this I then asked Gary to quote for a tiled roof over my porch, garage & utility room which was also completed with the same quality as the main house roof. The guys were excellent turned up when they said & always tidied up before they left. All in all I can highly recommend Balance & co.

Another Quality Repair Professionally Completed
Customer Service
We have used Balance and Company twice previously and have been delighted with their work. This repair was quite extensive involving the exterior of our house including replacing rotten timber, render repairs, new guttering, roof repairs and and full exterior repaint. At the outset Gary provided us with a very detailed, itemised quote. As the house is old we expected further work to arise during the repairs which when it did Gary again provided us with very prompt quotes and a detailed explanation of what was needed to carry out the repairs. The builders always arrived early and worked to a very high and tidy standard. We are very pleased with the final result and would thoroughly recommend Balance and Company.

Gave emergency advice (and practical help) after neighbour had a water leak.
Customer Service
In December 2019, one of my neighbours had a water leak which had penetrated into the Freeholder's main exterior wall (and also into my bathroom). I thought that the fault was with Balance & Company's new bathroom window (which they had installed in June 2018). I was wrong. Called Gary Mitchell and explained the situation. After seeing the photographs of the damp, he said that the fault was with the neighbour's plumbing and visited my home to prove it. The Leaseholder of that (leaky) flat was informed and he arranged for a plumber to rectify the cause of the problem in his bathroom. Gary suggested removing the existing plastic beading surrounding the bathroom window to allow the water in the exterior wall (and surrounding the window) to dry out over a three month period. Today, three months later (11th March 2020), the neighbour's plumbing is fixed, the walls are dry and the plastic beading has been replaced by Balance and Company. Both visits (in December 2019 and in March 2020) were free. Thank you, Gary Mitchell and your team, for your advice, and for helping me out of a messy situation.
