Lime Mortar Re-pointing
Customer Service
Darren undertook the re-pointing of the exterior elevations of our house and the clearance of one of the cavity walls. Darren provided helpful and clear advice relating to the work and kept us updated on progress throughout. Darren went out of his way to clear the working area at the end of each day including engaging with our neighbors. We are pleased with the end result and would have no hesitation in recommending Darren.

Helpful, punctual & tidy
Customer Service
Landscaping & brickwork for front garden. Had previously done some brickwork for us & was so impressed we used him again. I can't recommend him too highly. Helpful, punctual, tidy & liaised throughout the job. Kept us informed of each stage. Both Darren and his sidekick Dan worked so hard, hardly stopping. Cleaned up each day & kept to schedule. Reasonable price & would not hesitate to recommend this trader.

Groundwork and general building
Customer Service
I called Darren a month ago on a Wednesday morning asking if he could repair or replace a broken manhole cover on my drive into which either me or my car was likely to fall into. He promised to have a look that afternoon. I returned from work on Thursday to find that the job had already been completed and I was the proud owner of a much more robust and correctly fitted manhole cover. Very fast, very efficient and extremely reasonable - I could not recommend the Honest Builder more highly.

Pleasant & dependable
Customer Service
I have used this builder on three occasions and have always found him to be most helpful in discussing the work to be done. The work has always been completed on time and to a high standard, with the area cleaned and tidied at the completion. The price charged for these jobs has been reasonable.
