From the Client:

"We believe Phil's customer service to be second to none in the building trade.  From the first time we met Phil at the early stage of developing the project and working with us on the pricing, his attention to detail was tremendous.  He visited site nearly every day, responded to 'phone calls and text messages by return and was flexible enough to work with us to achieve exactly what we wanted and more.  We could not recommend Phil and his team highly enough."

Dear Phil,

Well, now that the dust has settled and we are beginning to get back to a “normal” routine in the house I thought I should write to you. I don't mind telling you that I approached this project with more than a little trepidation – the disruption generally and living without a kitchen in particular. That and having a lot of strangers wandering around wasn't an experience I looked forward to. However the reality has been that your team were absolutely excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed their company – particularly Gary, Robin and Mike who were here for most of the project. I would be grateful if you could pass them my thanks. They and the sub-contractors (Eddy, Tom and Chris and the plasterers) made the whole experience easy to bear.

The quality of the structural work is of a high order and the complicated plumbing and electrics are working as intended. I am very pleased with the final result.

Of course all of this has had to be carefully managed and I know that is not an easy task. So my thanks to you in particular for turning the drawings into reality for us. I have appreciated your helpful can-do approach, frankness and friendship. I would certainly be happy to recommend your company to others contemplating refurbishment and/or extension work or indeed new-build. I wish you and your business well for the future.

In 2008 we had major project work carried out with the construction of a large Oak framed Garden room located within a very difficult position to our property. We chose Calcott Construction Ltd as we have used them previously on smaller jobs: – internal walls knocked out, windows and doors replaced roof repairs, and we have always been very happy with the quality of their work – no job seems too small.

The Garden room took over six months and came in on budget and on time. The site was always tidy, clean and safe as each night the workmen always tided up, which having two small children was absolutely vital for us.

Calcott Construction Ltd always did what they said they were going to do and due to the nature of the project we had many additions/extras which we requested as the project progressed. With some of these additional extras having once discussed them with Calcott Construction Ltd they came up with alternatives which were considerably cheaper and in hindsight ultimately a better solution.

In addition to the Garden room construction, the project required a considerable landscaping of the main garden, lawn and driveways.

Everyone who has seen our additions have been very impressed with the quality and finish of the work. As far as we are concerned, Calcott Construction Ltd exceeded our expectations and we would have no hesitation in either using them in the future or recommending them to other prospective customers.

Dear Phil

We are delighted to let you know how please we are with the patio and lawn you and your team have completed for us. What a transformation it has made to the house and conservatory you did for us earlier, and also to ourselves.
Please pass on our thanks to Mike, his workmanship and pride in the job was a pleasure to watch. A well deserved pat on the back please!

Thanks Judy and Barry
