Darren and his team did a great job laying a patio in our back garden. He had great ideas to get the most out of the space. He was punctual, tidy and really did a quality job.

Repointing garden wall

We asked Darren to quote for the repointing of a large garden wall. He arrived at the appointed time and spent some time explaining the work he would recommend carrying out. Gladly the wall did not need totally rebuilding. At start date was agreed but had to be rescheduled due to the terrible weather at the beginning of November. Darren communicated this delay to us in good time so no plans were disrupted as a result. Darren and Dan were very clean, tidy, considerate and Covid aware which was comforting. When invoice time came, there were no surprises and I was more than happy with the service received.

Darren did some repointing work on our house using traditional lime mortar. He replaced several bricks using almost identical old bricks so they remain fully in keeping with the wall. The finished work looks great. I would be happy to use Darren again and would recommend him to friends.

We have a listed 1780 cottage. The Honest Builder was empathetic to this, knowledgable about lime mortar and blended the colour well. Great work. Great value. Went the extra mile.

Darren was invited to provide quotation for he replacement of a garden wall which had been damaged in a recent storm. He provide a quote extremely quickly at a competitive price. He started on time, worked extremely hard and offered constructive suggestions which improved the finished job. He was polite, timely and was excellent throughout. The result is a wall that is considerably better in construction and appearance than the one that was damaged. The work took just over two days and the the elapsed time from making initial contact to completion was one month. I will definitely use him again if I need a builder/bricklayer and would recommend him without reservation.

New patio laid and front garden path renovated

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.
