Leaking bathroom pipe - some of kitchen ceiling down. Plumbing all mended but still ceiling needed repair. We had Paul who fitted us in one afternoon but found the job a little more complicated than he had been led to believe. There was stippling involved which he had never done before. Nevertheless he set to and by the end of the afternoon the hole was repaired with stippled plastering of really great quality. He was very clean and tidy - no mess left behind - and a very reasonable charge. A very pleasant and polite person most concerned to do the best job possible at a very reasonable cost. Would most certainly recommend this firm highly.

We had problems with our kitchen taps, and also some damp in our conservatory. Found trader on Which Local, where they had several good reviews, so I thought I'd try them. On the phone, Jez, was very friendly, courteous and took time to explain the possible causes of both problems. He came to the house 2 days later to look at the problems. Was very thorough and again was good at explaining what the causes were and what the options were. He fixed the taps, and suggested what to do about the damp. By then I felt I could trust him and asked him about a problem with our garage door; he suggested a fairly simple solution. He charged us a very reasonable amount and we will get him back in to tackle the damp and garage door; will then put another review in. He never put any pressure on us to engage him, and didn't suggest doing more than was necessary. He really did seem knowledgeable. Very pleased.

A very dependable building contractor. I used them 15 years ago to build an extension to our house which involved converting our integral garage to a kitchen and building new integral garage. They promised that when they came on site they would be there every day until they finished. They were true to their word and we were very pleased with the quality of their work but also their employees. We used them again recently to dismantle an old limestone wall and to rebuild it in a new position; build and render a new breeze block wall; lay a patio consisting of 65 sq metres of paving stones on 3 inch concrete slab. Very high standard especially with the stone work and getting levels perfect. They used the same employees that we had 15 years ago who came every day until the job was finished.

Jez and his team fitted a patio double glazed door into a garage for us. The work involved cutting away the wall, inserting a lintel and fitting the door, and then re-plastering and making good around the door. All work was completed within two days and all the rubbish collected and removed immediately. A good clean job and considering the door was ordered by Jez and made to fit the space, it was a good price too. Would use this team again.

I used Which?local to find a builder to build a conservatory which I intended to use as a utility room. Dave's quote was competitive, he demonstrated his considerable experience and expertise, and used no 'hard sell' tactics, unlike the larger companies. The work was carried out to a very high standard and I am delighted with the finished project. Dave was easy to work with, conscientious and trustworthy. I would have no hesitation in employing him for another project or recommending him to others.

One hell of an accent! He turned up on two Saturdays and worked flat out. He made helpful and cost effective suggestions. Bring him out, show him what you want done and leave him to get on with it. He fixed the doors, relaid some of the paving stones, fixed some of the windows. I will be calling on his services again

I used Which? local to find a recommended builder and asked Dave at trader to come to discuss a problem I had with a garden wall which was cracking and falling down. He made several suggestions and after some discussion we decided on a good low cost solution and he gave me an estimate. This compared very favourably with another builder's estimate, so I asked him to do the work. He was able to do it at fairly short notice and managed to complete the job quicker than he estimated. The result is excellent and he charged less than expected by quite a lot. The overall finish is excellent and I'm certain the work has stabilised what was a botched construction job from the previous owners of my house. He was punctual, kept me fully up to date with how the work was progressing and I found him very easy to work with. I would thoroughly recommend him.

The outside of our detached bungalow was in need of a new coat of paint. We had a lot of green algal growth. Our guttering was blocked and broken in several places too. John washed the outside with bleach to remove the algae, and painted the bungalow beautifully, with 2 coats. He fixed all the guttering, and made other minor but essential repairs, including our bollard on the driveway. He did a superb job and the payment matched the quote. I highly recommend him to anyone. He's also qualified in a number of trades and we are going to ask him to do some more work for us next year. A true craftsman with a real pride in his work.

We had a porch renewed and the facia around our garage. He managed to make some savings on the garage and reduced his charge. David was careful to keep us updated on timings and accommodate our slight alterations. He also gave an insurance backed guarantee. His price was far less than some well known firms

One couldn't ask for more. At about the original appointed time, he rang to say he would be half an hour late. He duly arrived at the new time. Did the job (mending a leak on the loo) quickly and cleanly and charged a fraction of what the well advertised emergency plumbers seem to charge. We are glad to have met him.

Only firm of builders I have used more than once. Would highly reccomend them. House Jobs   Fit new bathroom Fit new kitchen Replacement of car port and new fencing Fitting of New UPVC facias and guttering   Shop Jobs   Construction of disabled access ramp with replacement widened doorway and new window. Conversion of garage into new store room / staff room with kitchen area and toilet.   On all of these jobs they have gone the extra mile to ensure we were happy both during the process and afterwards.  Another builder we used to knock a wall down between two rooms didn't include replacing some skirting board because it wasn't included in the specification. My wife and I wrongly just assumed that making good would be part of the job.  We have never had that problem with Cowley's, they always ask such questions before they price the job.
