We had our 'problem' patio re- laid. Darren did a very professional job to a high standard. We are very pleased with the result. Darren takes pride in his work, and manages his time and his staff well. He kept us informed of progress, and dealt with an issues that arose without a fuss. He is technically very knowledgeable.

Darren carried out lime repointing work for a flint wall and repaired a crack on my house. Darren came very quickly to look at the work and took time to talk through what needed to be done. Darren was very accommodating in picking up extra bits that needed doing whilst on site. The work was of a very high standard and left areas clean and tidy. I would highly recommend Darren.

This Gentleman and his helper did a superb job doing a pointing and refresh job on my garden wall in and outside to a very high standard. They worked very hard and left the premises on completion as good as new, by ensuring the area was clean and all tools and equipment removed. The work was of a high standard. Darren , the boss was a happy and helpful man.

Repointing in Lime

Darren was one of a number of people we approached to quote for undertaking the lime pointing for the exposed NW-facing side of our house. Darren came over within the week and gave a really competitive quote. Upon being instructed to deliver the works, Darren had to put up with delays to works for quite a few weeks while terrible weather and other issues prevented scaffolding (which we arranged separately) from being erected. He was understanding throughout and did not change his quote. From day one, Darren and Joe were punctual, polite, and delivered works to a really high standard - they even went so far as to clear up mess left by a previous contractor who had done roofing work. A number of neighbours commented on the exceptional work they were doing. We were so impressed with the work that we asked Darren to extend the work to the face of the house, which he did at another very competitive price. For each package of work, Darren involved the same amount as quoted even when works took longer than expected due to terrible weather and some delays to access due to some neighbours being absent. During works Darren also found that the cavity walls were filled wit 2-3 feet of debris and old lime mortar at their base. This was causing damp across the ground floor. On showing me the issue, Darren was able to clear all the cavities along our wall in a couple of days. We would not hesitate to recommend Darren to anyone who needs work done to an older property.

This is the second time we have used The Honest Builder and would not hesitate to recommend. Darren's conscientious approach ensured that the job was completed to a high standard of workmanship, and thanks to Darren an unrecognisable flint panel has been skillfully restored to its former glory.

The Honest Builders mended a garden wall which had a 3 meter gap caused by a speeding car! Their attention to detail in reclaiming all the Victorian bricks they could and matching the ones they couldn’t was exceptional - including sourcing hard to find feature bricks. They communicated well and were on site when they said they would be. The quality of work was excellent, perfectly following the curve of the wall and blending really well into the existing weathered wall. They were clean and tidy and protected the rest of the garden. Passers by have commented that they can’t tell that it’s been mended! Invoice was as expected with no surprise extras. We highly recommend using the Honest builder (Darren)

The Honest Builder was contracted to extend my driveway, install edgings and construct a ramp into my garage. The job was completed with care and to a very high standard, including relaying part of the existing drive so as to blend old and new seamlessly. The finished result is first class. Very pleased with the result.
