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.

I used Bush Builders to carry out an extension to my property. Prior to using Bush Builders I invited others builders some promised the world, some priced the job really cheap and others far too high. Having found Dave through Which? I felt reassured of their credentials and asked him to come and visit. He came on the day and time we agreed and from our initial conversation I had a very good feeling about his company. As I have never undertaken any building projects before I had loads of questions which Dave went through with me in detail. The quote he provided was very reasonable, the quote included a breakdown of where the money was being spent. After agreeing with the quote and a start date for the work, he got his team started on the work. Every single person who worked on the extension was really helpful and nice. The standard of work was very high. Whenever any problems occurred Dave was always on hand to help without fuss and without asking for extra money!! There was always a solution to a problem. The build was completed on budget and on time. Based on my experience I also asked Dave to fit out the kitchen - again this was done at a very reasonable cost and at a good standard, whenever I changed my design plan or alterations the guys Dave used never got annoyed or angry unlike some other builders who are just in a rush to finish a job and move onto the next. Even up to now I still contact Dave for various different house work small or big he has never let me down.

Had a Velux loft conversion done. The work was done to schedule and of high standard. Very pleased with the outcome! David gained my trust in using BB because he listened, understood, showed genuine care relieving me of the anxiety and stress I went through trying to get a builder to cater to my individual need. He's been a 'Godsent ' making a long awaited dream real. The team were brilliant, polite and friendly. They arrived on time each day and cleaned up after every task. BB are for keeps! Highly recommended!

We knew what we wanted in our heads but explaining this must have been confusing to Dave. The finished project was way beyond our expectations and can not thank Dave and his team enough for bringing to life our dream bookshelves. This was a small job compared to what Dave and his team usually do but nonetheless they were prepared to take us on and made a fantastic job. We will certainly use them again and would recommend to anyone who is looking for a good and reliable builder. Thank you Bush Builders.

I feel extremely lucky finding Bush Builders. They were professional, prompt and open throughout the seven month process. I was always consulted and informed of any issues. The estimated cost rose as I kept adding quality fitments and changed the goalposts relating to the build. Dave the principle was easy to communicate with and always replied within the day to Any text messages or calls I made. Dave’s team were excellent and worked in harmony with each other. A big thanks to Ricky, Dan, Vern, Peter, Julian, George, Henry, Sam, Chris, Dean and Brad. All true professionals in their respective trades. I would definitely use and recommend Bush Builders to anyone looking for an extension or even a larger job.

A huge thanks to Dave, Julian, George, Vern and everyone involved in building our extension. They have created us a large 50 square metre open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area and we look forward to enjoying it as a family for many years to come. The job was started exactly when agreed and the quality of workmanship has been first rate throughout the build. Communication was excellent and we could always contact someone if we needed to. There were some unforeseen issues with the existing part of the house and the way it was dealt with by Dave and the team is a true testament to the sheer professionalism of this firm. I would not hesitate to recommend Bush Builders and we will definitely be using them for further projects.

We asked Dave to build a single storey rear extension and we are very pleased with the end product. We found Dave's team professional, approachable and helpful. They were always happy to answer questions and explained each step of the process. We had our extension started in January and regardless of the weather they always worked tirelessly and at the end of each day they cleaned up after themselves. We would definitely use Bush Builders again and would recommend them to anyone considering having work done.

Brilliant builders, highly recommend! Bush Builders renovated the the ground floor of my house to make it open plan and fitted a large kitchen/utility area. I couldn’t be happier with the result. We were warned of potential issues before the build started and found them to be completely upfront and honest during the entire build. There were no hidden costs and the final bill was as expected. I will definitely use them for further projects.
