New patio laid and front garden path renovated
Customer Service

Darren created a new patio area for me and renovated my front garden path. This involved removing the old paving, laying new stone paving with a brick edge, digging out the old path, putting down membrane on the path and covering it with new chippings. I'm extremely pleased with the work he and Dan have done. It has transformed my garden. Darren's work is excellent, as I know from previous jobs he's done for me. He's always very helpful and courteous, and makes sure to let me know how things are progressing. The work was done in the time frame he estimated and cost what he quoted.

This is the second time Darren has done work for me and I can unhesitatingly recommend him. He is very expert at what he does and does not hang about on a job. The work was carried out to a very high standard and all spoil removed.

Darren did a great repair job on our flint walls. He is highly skilled and experienced, and he manages client expectations with care. He and Dan worked well as a team, were punctual and courteous, and left the site tidy. I have no hesitation in recommending the Honest Builder.

1 year ago Darren and his team laid land drains under, and then replaced our drive. We were very happy with the quality, price and experience, despite the inevitable disruption caused by such a job. Subsequently, after prolonged or heavy rain, we noticed that water pooled at one point in the drive and drained very slowly. Darren regularly uses the lane on which we live, saw what was happening and approached us to say he wasn't happy with it and wanted to lay another land drain to solve the problem, at his expense. He completed the job last week. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Worked carried out at Swanmore Methodist Church. Re-pointing was required to parts of the brickwork. Darren listened to our requirements, advised and did a professional job. Work was carried out during the school holidays as requested to minimise disruption to activities. The work area was left clean and tidy at the end of each working day.
