Latest Reviews and Feedback
Dominic and his team have just finished renovation work on our house. He has been excellent. He has managed his team of tradesman who are all highly skilled very well. I can recommend DW Murphy Builders & Developers (RDG) Ltd. I would use them again.
We would thoroughly recommend Ian for plastering work. Ian has provided us with high quality plastering work and a prompt service. Ian is polite and gave us clear information 're pricing and when he was available to complete our plastering work. Ian arrived exactly when he said he would and finished the work when he said he would and tidied up afterwards! I would highly recommend him.
If you are looking for an intelligent, practical, reliable and honest builder and project manager then Dominic is the man. Having used him twice before (over the last 15 years) we have recently engaged him on a complete refurbishment of a 5 bedroom house carried out over five months including structural work (new steels), incorporating a garage into the living accommodation, complete renewal of all carpentry, electrics and plumbing, significant external works including renewing all drains, major landscaping, a new timber garage, etc. Dominic is a thoroughly decent man who is always thinking ahead and solving problems. He has a team of seriously good trades who work with him and you can tell by the loyalty they show to him that he's a good boss. We worked with him on a "cost-plus" basis which went very well - the transparency worked really well for both of us. If you decide to engage Dominic then he likes milk and one sugar in his coffee. You may get to meet his Jack Russell called Toby who enjoys nothing more than chasing a digger bucket. If you'd like to speak to me for an oral reference then ask Dominic to put you in touch with me.
The best reference I can give for Dominic is the fact that I am using him again for three separate projects on our new house without seeking competitive quotes. He first did work for us about 8 years ago when he carried out a large amount of block paving when laying a driveway and path around our garden. He subsequently built a single story extension on to our kitchen, and accrued out a conversion of our garage into a living room. We lived at the house for a further 6 years after that work and never experienced any problems.I have always found Dominic's quotes to be accurate, and his work to be timely. On any occasions when he has not been able to meet previously agreed timescales (usually due to adverse weather conditions), he has always been quick to communicate this to me. Individuals working for him have been courteous and, on the whole, tidy. Where there have been concerns, I have raised these to Dominic and they have been dealt with swiftly and without fuss. As such, based on my experience, I have no hesitation in providing a positive reference for Dominic.
D.W Murphy Ltd have completed two large jobs for us. The first was a substantial extension to our last house, here he also built a the wall at the back property. We started out with a dilapidated two bed brick and flint cottage so quite a transformation. More recently, between March and May this year, they have carried out substantial works to the entrance to our new house including widening it by several feet, constructing at least forty foot of retaining walls, new electric gates, new patio, etc. I'd certainly recommend D.W Murphy Ltd. They a very organised builder/project manager and has provided huge amounts of input into the design and construction methods used in the projects that we've worked on. They take the architects plans and says - wouldn't it be better to do it this way? Keeps the site tidy and the men are all very pleasant.
