Large house extension and complete renovation
Customer Service
Quality

We bought our new home with the plan to completely renovate it and do a large two storey side and large single storey rear extension. After getting the plans drawn up and planning permission granted we spoke with 6 builders and we quickly narrowed it down to Dave as the one we wanted to go with. We felt comfortable with him, he seemed honest, straight forward and easy to talk to. The major work started in December , they worked through the snow that Christmas navigated all the problems with covid and building supplies. It was pretty much finished in the summer of 2021. We couldn’t be happier with the way it finished and it was just what we wanted. Dave was able to solve quite a few problems along the way simply through his years of experience but always kept us informed. He even managed to save us several thousand pounds after speaking with the planning officer (in person) and agreeing to a minor change to the depth of the foundations. Top man. I would highly recommend him and all of the guys that work for him. Definite five stars

We needed help from Dave and his team following some issues we had with our local council and the building inspector we had engaged from Assent Building Control. Dave went above and beyond to help us - and all at his own expense and also while he was on holiday. We have only positive things to say about Bush Builders and we really couldn’t have negotiated with the council without his help.

You really cannot go wrong when choosing Bush Builders for your project. Quality, price, responsiveness, friendliness of the team and ability to deliver on schedule are all first class. It's nearly 4 years since Dave and his excellent team completed a 2 storey home extension for us but the ongoing support and help Dave has and continues to provide since completing the job is worthy of another review. The quality of Bush Builders work is top class and you can rest assured that once the job is completed Dave will not walk away. Having that comfort and support from knowing he is there on hand should you need anything related to the job, really is invaluable. During the job, Dave was the most responsive tradesperson I've ever dealt with and that has continued even now during COVID and incredibly busy periods. He always returns calls 4 years later even though he really has zero obligation to do so, which cannot be said for many builders. He often arranges for the original team to return should we need any additional work and it's always great to see old faces once again! We will continue to use Bush Builders for any work going forward and have strongly recommended Dave to friends and family.

I just completed a house renovation with Bush Builders. It included everything from kitchen to bathrooms, to removing walls, new flooring, painting, etc. Upfront, I was provided with an itemised budget for each piece of work we wanted completed. We were still on budget at the end of the project. The communication from the team was great. Throughout the process they called/messaged regularly with updates and to ask questions before completing work if they were unclear of what I wanted. Overall, it was a great experience, the house looks great, and I would recommend them.

Bush Builders have been a pleasure to work with and their work is outstanding. They managed our single story extension and fitted our new kitchen whilst re-decorating our home as well. Having building work on such a large scale was scary for me and my wife however Dave, Ricky, Dan, Julian, George, Vern, Sam and Phil (sure I am missing a lot of the team) made the experience effortless. They were always on hand to help and were very professional. With a 12month old son they also worked around our needs and made sure our day to day living was not impacted. The finishing on the work was fantastic and I could not highly recommend them enough. Truly an honest team that is rare to find.

Happy home renovation

Bush builders helped with our house renovation. We needed a new plumbing system, boiler and radiators, new electrics and electrical board, all walls and ceilings plastered, a new bathroom, kitchen, a hatch for our loft and all new carpentry. Bush builders were very reliable and easy to get hold of. They contacted us within a day when we enquired about the job and came to our house to give us a quote very quickly. Dave and his brother were very honest about what work was needed and what would be best for now and for the future as we would like to extend in a year or so. When they started the work, they were very quick and the work was completed in the time scale they told us. If anything needed to be changed during the work, the team were quick to change things for us to make sure we were happy. If decisions hadn’t been made by us, they checked with us before doing the job, which we really appreciated. The tiling, plastering and carpentry work has been done to a very high standard. We’re really pleased with how the house has come together. Definitely recommend them!

We are so pleased we chose Dave and his team to complete our work. We had an extension built to house a new kitchen and then our old kitchen was converted into a separate downstairs loo and utility room. From start to finish the team have been excellent and the quality of work is very high. We were quite apprehensive about starting the project but any concerns or questions we had were dealt with quickly and it has been very straightforward. The whole team are very skilled and take real care in what they doing. Special mention though to Dan, George & Julian who did the kitchen fitting and internal work - it looks so good. I would say also that the quote for the work we had was both competitive and clearly set out so we knew exactly what we were paying for. If we need a builder in the future we know where to come !

Great Experience

When we first obtained planning permission back in January 2020, we contacted builders to get quotes as per normal. However, actually getting a builder to be interested in the work was almost impossible. We had only had two builders who feigned interest and one disappeared from radar and the other didn’t seem to want to stick to the plans. We gave up for a while because we couldn’t find anybody to quote. We asked neighbours for advice and we were given Dave Bush’s details. From that moment, things Improved beyond our expectations. He was on time, he listened and was honest about our expectations and we immediately felt that we could trust him. He was very helpful also when the person who drew our plans didn’t want to do building reg drawings. Dave helped us to find a new architect. We hadn’t had building work done for many years and based on that experience, we were not sure what to expect. We need not have worried. Dave’s team were excellent. Dan and George worked very hard and the standard of their work is very high. The rest of the team including the plasterers, electricians and roofers were all polite, hard working and tidy - and their workmanship is of the same high standard. From the first meeting with Dave until the last day of working, they impressed us with their punctuality, attendance and most importantly, the standard of their work. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Thank you Bush Builders for creating our wonderful kitchen diner extension - this is our first home and our first project and having these guys help us along the way has been invaluable - every single trade has been nothing but polite, friendly and helpful and finished jobs to a high standard! Shout out to Rickie, George, Vern, Pete, Sam, Phil, Dan, Dave and everyone else along the way! We love our new space and will see you again when its time to do the bathroom :)

Had single-storey extension and internal alterations. Had the usual cowboys give me prices and chit chat and then found Bush Builders. The Covid-19 emergency delayed the completion but still very pleased with the timetable of works. All the trades were well skilled. The chippy Tom, who did the timber for the flat roof, was known as millimetre he was so good. Can't complain about any aspect of the work and Dave made sure we were totally happy with everything the team completed. Would highly recommend Bush Builders for a quality finish on your building/alteration project. We would use them again without hesitation.
