Lewis and Nick were obsessive about removing the dirt and dust of the two Victorian lath & plaster ceilings they took down, and keeping the rest of the house free from dust and mess. They were working in two very small rooms with high ceilings and the floor obstructed by bath, loo,basins - I don't know how they managed it. Results are faultless.

While the cupboard they built was good, their customer service I thought was terrible. A simple two day job took a week to complete as they failed to return when promised. I was going to give them another chance to install some electrics, but they didn't got back to me, due to having too much work on. Reliability is an issue with them!

We recently used Peter and his team to fix an ingress damp problem followed by interior decorating of most of our home. Having had other firms in to look at the work I found Peter to provide the best and clearest information. All works were carried out to a very high standard and his team clearly take pride in what they do. I would certainly go back to them for any future works.

First class builder, with vast experience and skills as an electrician and plumber. He is extremely reasonably priced, talks through projects with you, does what you want; he's skilful, a craftsman, very pleasant, hard-working, and tidy. He has converted a room into a workshop, refitted both our bathroom and kitchen, made a loft into an accessible storage space, rebuilt garden walls, laid paths, and much more mundane stuff. Not surprisingly, he's much in demand. The date below is for the latest job he has done for us - refitting the kitchen.

Can I particularly recommend Marc Simmons of Booker and Best. He acted as contract manager over different specialist companies renovating our Victorian building in Warrior Square. He is knowledgeable about building solutions that will work. He remained courteous and patient despite atrocious weather conditions and treats the client with respect.

Left a question on voice mail for Mr Chapman concerning a wall he'd put up as part of building an extension for us more than 10 years ago, in 2001. Although he was on holiday, he gave the reply to his son who phoned me with it. Absolutely amazing after-sales service!

...And here's a picture of the loft they did for us. Our camera's not that great so you can't see all of it! Really lovely space though. Still can't believe they finished so quickly.

Trustworthy, reliable, experienced and fun! I had a very different impression of builders after Cocoon did work for me and my family. We were very apprehensive about having so many people working in our home and for so long. A loft conversion and a kitchen extension happening at the same time seemed like a really silly idea as we imagined most of the house would be out of bounds for most of the time. How wrong one can be. We didn't even noticed them working in the loft until a week before they finished and the temporary kitchen they installed in the rear of the front room meant we could almost carrying on as usual while the work continued. Cocoon are brilliant. A nicer bunch of people you could not imagine. Polite, hard working, sensitive and great fun too. And nothing is too much trouble. Dominic has this real 'can do' attitude and things get done very quickly! 8 weeks for both jobs running consecutively, no problems whatsoever and an amazing result. We won't be moving for a long while now. I've enclosed a picture of their 'cocoon'. It's what we're getting next to help working from home a bit easier.

Mr Byard did plastering work in the toilet/bathroom and have to say the finish was excellent, very smooth. Plastering is his speciality. He also did rendering of the roof fire walls, replace lead flashings, stabilized chimney pots etc. Lewis is pleasant, friendly, easy to get on with, is a good listener and explained in detail the work involved on the roof. His work is neat and tidy. If you feel something is not right he will always listen and put things right to your satisfaction. I will use his services in future.

This company are the 'main contractor' on our new build and have met or exceeded our expectations on all counts. They have helped develop an excellent relationship with their client (me) and they, their employees and the subcontractors they employ, all have the same 'solution-based' mentality. The quality of their work is top class.

trader Builders totally refurbished my house and did a fantastic job. Work undertaken included repairs to the roof and drainage, totally new plumbing, shower room, kitchen and electrics, the creation of an additional room, replastering and all redecoration, lighting, flooring etc. They were real craftsmen who took pride in their work and went the extra mile to ensure everything was completed to the highest standard.
