Latest Reviews and Feedback

Having recently moved, I decided that a few jobs needed doing in the front and back garden. I contacted a few Tradesman for quotes and decided to go with Darren as he was professional and competitive. In January Darren laid a hardcore base for some decking tiles, built a new step from the decking area up to the shed and replaced all the engineering bricks that had cracked on the low-level wall in the back garden. Then he moved to the front garden where he installed new side gate, built a new porch step, built a new corner pillar and re-pointed the front garden wall and extended a corner of the driveway with block paving. Darren is an excellent tradesman with great communication skills, very punctual and tidy. I am very pleased with all the jobs he has completed and would highly recommend him.

We've used Darren for several projects now and every time he comes round I am reminded why! This time Darren came to build a side wall with an arch and gate on our property. Affable and conscientious (he noted my initial reason for the wall - security - and from the get-go he made sure to restrict access across the side with pallets/bricks etc), he goes above and beyond to ensure that he builds something we are proud of, that fits with our original brief and that he is tidy and communicates what he is doing with us. I particularly like that during the build he asked us at various points for our opinion on (for example) which way we wanted the gate to swing etc rather than just fitting it. In order to ensure that he could time the job as he'd intended, he even came round on an earlier Saturday to lay the foundations so that he could start on time, since the weather would have held him back otherwise. Finally I very much like that I deal with Darren from start to finish as I like knowing that nothing gets lost along the way or that the workmanship could be different from promised (as sometimes can occur with larger operations). Very much recommended!

Darren laid a patio for me and created a wall. I had a lot of reclaimed flint stones, red brick and other material which I wanted to use. He was very flexible about using the reclaimed material, incorporating it very successfully with grey Indian sandstone paving.

I was really impressed with his work and felt he achieved a better result than I had hoped for.

In terms of his work ethic and integrity, he arrived when he said he would, worked hard and didn’t mess me about at all. He was transparent about the cost of materials and I felt he was fair with his charge.

All visitors to my house have commented on the work - it’s not planted yet but still looks good.

After moving in to a new house, we decided the brick wall at the front of the property required demolishing and re-building.

After several quotations and meeting several different builders, Darren (who was recommended to us) provided a professional and competitive quotation for the demolition and re build of the front 14 Metre length wall.

Darren’s professional approach could not be questioned, he turned up early every day, organised a port-a-loo to ensure he didn’t trouble us in using our facilities. After each day Darren would clean down the driveway and tidy all materials to ensure the driveway was left in a tidy manner.

Darren was hugely respectful and trustworthy, due to our trust in Darren we often asked him to assist with accepting deliveries on our behalf or with other tradesman visiting site whilst we were out. Nothing was ever too much trouble.

We are hugely impressed with the quality of work and attention to detail, so much so in fact that both of our neighbours have requested Darren’s details for future work that they may require.

We first had Darren round to re-point a long garden wall, and he did a great job so we then had him lay a patio and landscape the garden, including adding a winding path and steps.

The next job was to build a new garden wall on the other side to the one he had re-pointed, including adding buttresses and having it sloping at one point to cater for the change in height of our garden as you move away from the house.

With the back garden done, we then employed him to sort out our front garden as it was a complete state. He laid a new wall, fixed into place new railings, and laid a new set of paving. It all looks lovely and we're very happy with it.

Darren is very punctual and polite, and you can discuss any of the details of the job with him. He's open to your input and will keep you informed as to progress too. Having had him do so many jobs for us, I can heartily recommend him.
