Matthew of did a large extension, complete ground floor alteration and bedroom and bathroom renovation for our house. The work included rear extension to open up the ground floor for open plan kitchen/living/dining room with under floor heating, bifolds, skylight, new toilet, new utilities room, new plumbing and electrics, Plastering and painting and decorating. We then got the team back to do other projects like removing of chimney stack, chimney breast and new bathroom and bedroom refurbishment. He is very helpful and knowledgeable and a great asset to have when doing any kind of building work. Matthew and his team are an absolute pro! Come rain or shine they work above and beyond to deliver a high end finish, Matthew has been professional throughout and kept us well informed throughout the process. Highly recommend and will continue to work with them on future projects. - Bodrul

We commissioned Abbey Building Contractors to build a rear extension to our 1930s semi. The extension resulted in a new open plan family room totalling nearly 60 sq. m utilising the kitchen and part of our lounge/diner in the existing house and knocking through the rear wall across the width of the house into a new ground floor extension with pitched roof and underfloor heating throughout. We lived in the house during the works, which lasted 16 weeks. We are absolutely delighted with the finished extension and could tell Matt, Chris and all the Abbey team take a lot of pride in their work. Overall, the experience was a lot less stressful than we expected, which is saying something as a family of five with a two year old! It has completely transformed the ground floor of our house and we have no hesitation in being able to recommend Abbey. We now spend all our time in the new family room and absolutely love it! Thank you Matt, Chris and all the Abbey team! - Mr. & Mrs. Walsh, Chelmsford

The two storey rear extension was completed to very high standards as expected. The workers were very good, punctual and always tidied the place at the end of the working day. The work was very tidy and to a high quality finish. - Pooneeta
