Ensuite Bathroom Rebuild
Customer Service

I was unfortunate enough to have a flood in my ensuite bathroom last year. I called Chris round to give me a quote for the work that needed to be done. When he arrived, he was really reassuring and we discussed everything that needed to be carried out at the property and how long it would take. Chris and Nick arrived promptly when they said they would and completed all the work within the time frame agreed. I can't thank Chris enough, the quality of the work was amazing, and he even came up with better solutions to what was installed before. Great communication throughout, arrived when he said he would and completed the project on time. I think this is the first time I've ever had a builder do this. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Chris is an absolute professional. He treated our home with the utmost respect while converting our loft into a laundry space. He was full of creative ideas to get the best out of the space. He was friendly and easy to communicate with. He was reliable, worked hard and at pace, and went out of his way to accommodate our personal circumstances, squeezing in additional work at short notice when our other contractors let us down, and finishing ahead of schedule. He knows the regulations, is qualified in multiple areas, and does things properly. He stuck to the estimate – no easy feat in this age of fluctuating prices. Above all, his work is very high quality, attentive to detail, and we have every faith that it will be long lasting. He is customer focused: any minor misunderstandings – inevitable on a job of this size - were quickly cleared up by him and it is that which counts. We have had a couple of troublesome contractors previously and it is clear that in an industry blighted by reputational issues, Chris is a cut above the rest. He brings peace of mind. We hope to use him again and would recommend him unreservedly, as one of the best contractors we have ever hired. Thanks Chris!

Garage conversion to the highest standard, reasonable cost, exceeded expectations.

My garage was converted from scratch to a wonderful ensuite bedroom/living room with large ramp outside, so my elderly and infirm mother can move in with us. Chris was a great communicator from the start and in every aspect of the build he has been reliable and helpful. He is thoughtful and checked every detail of the build carefully with me. Chris was very knowledgeable regarding what features could be included in the build which could help my mother meet her mobility needs; so we have a far better room than I could have ever envisaged. He gave care and consideration to everything, including careful costing and I am especially grateful for the changes he made to improve the drainage to the new ensuite shower and toilet at no extra cost although it was extra work. At every stage I was kept informed and consulted and every day there was a feeling of progression. I felt we were his top priority throughout the 7 week build and his calm manner helped smooth out and overcome all the issues which can arise as a project comes together. Chris was also considerate to the fact that we were living and working at home most of the time he was here together with his team. He managed to minimise the noise, dust and disruption that accompanies such a build and left us with a truly splendid room which exceeded out expectations and was well worth the money. I think we were fortunate to have had his expertise and would definitely engage him again.

Excellent work replacing our kitchen
Customer Service
Quality
Value
Our experience of Woody's Building Services was excellent in all respects. They undertook a complete kitchen refurbishment for us. This included gutting the old kitchen completely, stripping and replastering the walls and ceiling, rewiring the electrics including installing a new fuse box and additional sockets, installing a new rubber flooring with new sub-base, replumbing sink, washing machine and radiators, building and installing bespoke plywood wall cabinets to our spec, plus tiling and painting. Woody's workmanship was top notch. Chris is very skilled, paid close attention to details and clearly takes pride in doing great work. Chris was a pleasure to deal with. He was very prompt in responding to our initial query, listened to the requirements, and responded with a detail cost estimate picking up everything we had discussed. He was communicative and helpful throughout the refurb. We were living in the flat while the works were being done and he was sensitive to that, taking care to try to keep things tidy as possible. The cost was kept within budget. There was a small overrun (4 days) against the original schedule but this was outside of Chris's control (some old layers of paint proved very difficult to remove ahead of plastering). Chris put in extra hours to try to offset further delay, which we greatly appreciated. We would definitely use Woody's services again in the future, and have no hesitation about recommending them for similar projects.

We found Chris initially through the which trusted traders website and are very glad we did! From the off he was really helpful in being upfront with the quotes and evening helping us plan and cost some aspects of the project (even before we had confirmed him taking on the project). His quality of work is great and given that he is a certified plumber and electrician too it makes life so much simpler when you find extra issues. He even managed to increase the water pressure - an unexpected bonus! Although not the cheapest around (we ended up nearly doubling our initial estimates through issues we found in the flat) he was more than accommodating and went above and beyond in helping us when suppliers sent over the incorrect materials / products. At the end of the project we did feel like he rushed the process slightly - potentially a keeness to move onto the next planned project but Chris happily came back to finish off small jobs (even months later to refit a radiator after delays caused by our decorator) All in all he was a great hire and we've already given word of mouth recommendations to friends and neighbours.

Front room refurb & new patio
Customer Service
Quality
Value
What should have been a fairly straightforward front room refurb evolved into a more complicated job as Chris identified legitimate problems with our drainage and patio that required more work than we originally anticipated. But Chris was reliable and methodical throughout, always explaining what needed to be done and why (and what it would cost). His expertise across a number of areas - construction, joinery, electrics and plumbing – was massively helpful and he was always very conscientious that everything was done properly. Most importantly though he is trustworthy and responsive –he turns up when he says he will turn up and always gets back to you ASAP if you have any concerns or queries (not always the case with builders in my experience). I would definitely recommend.

Consistently exquisite work.

I have the dubious privilege of having owned a seven bedroom Victorian villa of some 5,000sq ft since 2006. It's high maintenance indeed and over the years I've had many tradesmen work on the house and have dabbled with electrics, plastering, joinery, and a dash of plumbing myself. I also know enough about the English legal system to know my way around a courtroom. Enough of the bragging. For two reasons; aside from being slightly obnoxious, my building knowledge paled into utter insignificance when I first encountered Christopher Wood a couple of years ago. I haven't met a tradesman who measures up to Christopher! His work is absolutely outstanding. As he is a master of many trades and has a trusted band of tradesmen for the others, you can trust him to attain an absolutely exemplary finish at a price that will not deviate from the agreed contract. Sure, unexpected things will crop up and both parties need to make reasonable judgements when they do crop up. He has refitted 3 bathrooms for us from scratch, restored two staircases, moved internal walls, installed a bespoke drawing room window, rewired the top floor, replumbed, repaired walls, and so on and so on. I am lining him up for future projects.

Chris completed our bathroom renovation and we are incredibly happy and impressed with his work. Punctual, trustworthy, polite, with timely advice when needed. Commenced and finished the work on the time schedule outlined and kept us updated with budget/invoices. He completed most of the work himself as he is qualified in most trades and was always on site. Great attention to detail and executed our design perfectly. Would highly recommend.

Christopher put right some issues that I had in the bathroom, in particular re-grouting some tiles in the shower, adding new tiles to an untidy section of the wall and removing & re-siliconing the shower tray. Christopher was meticulous in his work, he covered the stairs & bedroom before starting and left the place spotless unlike other tradesmen I’ve hired. He is a professional and I wouldn’t hesitate hiring him again.

Total kitchen removal and refit

He is an amazing tradesman. He is fully accredited in 4 different trades, plumbing, joinery, gas engineer and electrician. Unlike other builds I've had done there was no messing about with co-ordinating the other trades because he did them all. The original job was to remove the old kitchen and replace it with the new. When the old units were removed it revealed water and mould damage that wasn't anticipated. He set about stripping the walls back to bare brick, treating the damage, rebuilding and reinforcing the walls in preparation for the new kitchen and units, which were installed immaculately. He even suggested a few ideas that enhanced the kitchen like remote control under unit smart lighting, which was of little extra cost. I am over the moon with his work and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to my friends. He arrived at 7.30 and worked, non stop till 5 most days, with a 40 minute lunch break. Everyone of my friends have loved the finished product. He even recommended the where I should buy the kitchen as he has relationships with suppliers. There were no snagging issues.
