Good reasonably priced repair work on garden wall and roof parapet
Customer Service
Quality
Value
Keith, Ben and the other two family members did a good job repairing our garden wall, which had lost much of top few layers and coping stones. It took them a few hours one day and the whole of the next. They were able to reuse many of the bricks and stones that had come off, which I appreciated, and finished it well. They also did good repair work on the roof parapet wall where rendering had come off. Cost was reasonable. They were reliable turning up to quote and start the work. Communication was generally good, and friendly. We had to wait quite a while until they quoted, and then until they could do the job when had a gap between larger jobs. But that was understood from the beginning, and I preferred that they were realistic about timing. They were generally quick at replying to emails about the quote and work.

K Barnard did really good work on the back of our house and garden. There was re-pointing and painting of walls, installation of a fence and trellises and work on paving stones. The communication was good throughout. The whole team seemed reliable and trustworthy.

Rebuilding Gate Post
Customer Service
Quality
Value
Just before Xmas 2020 my neighbour's car accidentally went into one of the 7 brick piers (posts) in my front garden wall. I collected a number of quotations from various local brick layers. All came in at around £950. But none were known or reputable. I got K Barnard off here. They provided a written quotation within a day. 5 weeks later they came and rebuilt the pier using the same old bricks. They meticulously cut the 60 or so bricks out of the knocked over pier and got rid of the concrete centre. It took around 9 hours to do the job. No break, all three working very hard. The pier restored and looking better than before it was knocked over. The quality of workmanship is top notch. The 3 guys are really good - no mess, they kept clear of the garden bushes, cleared up all the dust from cutting etc. Washed the road and path where they worked. They also made sure that the iron gate could be hung - all fitted and measured very nicely. I would definitely use K Barnard again. Great work, tidy, polite, quiet, job done with minimum of fuss. And they reused ALL the old bricks, so no waste at all. My neighbour paid up. In the end, K Barnard came in at £250 cheaper than the other 7 quotations, so his pain was not as bad as it could have been.

Repair and rebuild bay window piers and arches and repoint where needed.

Keith and Ben stood out from the rest of the builders who came to quote for the work as it was obvious from the start that they are craftsmen who know their craft inside-out. We were not disappointed when the work began as Keith and Ben, joined by Gary and Justin worked like Trojans, fuelled by cups of coffee, biscuits and Pot Noodles! They were a real pleasure to have around - always polite, and careful if they had to come into the flat. They have an old-school approach to their work and obviously take pride in what they do - a rare quality these days. They completed the work on time and on budget and we are so glad that we chose them for the job. We were actually sad to see them go when they finished and have already recommended them to two neighbours who have asked for quotes.

Re-instating of Victorian Bay window, and restoration of front of house
Customer Service
Quality
Value
Keith and Ben oversaw a big project at our property, re-instating a Victorian bay window which had been completely removed in the 60s. This involved rebuilding the bay from scratch to match the others on the street, commissioning stone masons to match exactly the designs of the period, replacing all windows to the front of the house and cleaning/repointing all brickwork. Also they completely renovated the front garden, building a new London stock brick wall with York stone coping stones, laid a victorian mosaic path, and put down reclaimed York stone flagstones. This was a huge project and we struggled to find people who had the skills and confidence to oversee everything. From the outset Ben and Keith made us feel that they could manage the project and that proved to be the case. The quality of their work is excellent and they were also a pleasure to have in the house, we missed them after they were gone to be honest. There may well be slicker and bigger contractors out there, but the personable way Ben and Keith handled us throughout the project was so valued and the end result looks absolutely great. All work was completed on agreed budget. We can't recommend them highly enough.

Honest advice and excellent work

We contacted Keith and Ben after reading the reviews here and are very glad we did. We thought a lot of our terraced house needed repointing, but when they came to inspect they said most of it was in good condition and only needed patching. They also noticed that one of our gutters was too short, potentially damaging the brickwork. We also wanted repairs done to several cracked stone windowsills and to have our patio repointed. Gary and Sean did most of the work and did so meticulously, finishing it all in three days. We are delighted with the results, which included a new gutter and redoing some previous repair work that wasn't up to their high standards. Keith, Ben, Sean and Gary were all very pleasant to deal with, and as well as doing a great job of work, did a fantastic job clearing up afterwards.

We had Keith, Ben, Gary and Sean working on our house, doing extensive repointing as well as removing a defective chimney stack. We were extremely impressed with their knowledge and skills, they were fully versed in the appropriate techniques and materials for conversation of old victorian houses like ours. When we got quotes from other builders they had various concerns of 'this could go wrong', 'that could go wrong', but with Keith and team, their attitude was much more refreshing. They were clear on what the challenges could be, but had the attitude of just knuckling down and getting the job done. I would highly recommend them for any brickwork, repointing jobs big or small. These proper skills are hard to come by and if I learnt anything, it's that people who have learnt these skills over decades really know their stuff.

Quick Advice
I had to make a journey from Oxfordshire to London to visit my property and Keith was able to meet me at my required time, though I understand he was busy. No work needed on this occasion but Keith gave me his advice freely and seems knowledgeable.

Rebuild pier supporting garden gate

Keith and his mate completed the rebuilding and strengthening of a brick pier partly displaced by the roots of a holly tree to a very high standard and in less than the allotted time, and on budget. They left everything neat and tidy both overnight and upon completion. They were a pleasure to deal with, and my neighbours commented unasked on how friendly and polite they were. They were helpful and communication was the optimum.
