If I could give Steve and the Belverdale team more stars simply put I would. Belverdale rescued me when another builder went awol leaving me with a leaking roof and half finished loft conversion. From the moment o contacted them via the FMB website, they were Amazing. Steve came out swiftly when contacted and immediately sprung his whole team into action. Each person that has come on site over the last few weeks has done an amazing job picking up and sorting out the mess left by the previous builders, going above and beyond to help get me to the point of completion - all in under 5 weeks. Belverdale are honestly my guardian angels and I will be recommending them to everyone. I can’t thank Steve and the team enough 👏🏻👏🏻 - Fast and caring service

We were recommended to Belverdale by a colleague of my husband's. We were initially impressed by the professionalism and knowledge of Steve Scudder but as time went on we began to realise that this is a "family business".  With any large building project you come across problems due in part to the unknown. We had a problem with our foundations, Steve managed to make design changes which kept the project "thankfully" within budget. Even though the foundations were to prove much costlier with his changes the actual cost was no different.  We were very grateful to him for this. We also needed help with the fit out, sourcing wooden flooring, fitted bedrooms etc. Steve has many contacts and was able to source things for us at extremely competitive prices. We now have a beautiful family home which is very elegant, and has been much admired. We also made other design changes because although things look good on a plan when it takes shape it isn't always the best idea, Steve gave us his suggestions and made the changes, however he never changed his pricing. I know he did include things for us that were not part of the original specification being beautiful oak internal doors as he too wanted the house to be right. As a family business "young Steve Scudder" is a very talented joinery and was able to retain and replicate some of the period features which I so loved. He was able to interpret our ideas. Going back to price Steve's son is the company accountant and produces very detailed costings. The only item we did go over the estimated costing was with the electrical fit out and to be fair Steve did warn us that this was a common over spend for most people. I opted for polished chrome sockets through out and we asked requested far more sockets and down lighters, also my husband wanted an AV system and a high end security system. However, Reece was very good and was always able to produce spread sheets to advise us as to ho - Mr & Mrs Saint

Steve and the team at Belverdale were contracted by us to build a new home. We cannot speak highly enough of them – they assisted us on the entire project, planning, design, build and finishing touches for the property. We have worked with several contractors over the past 30 years and found Steve to be the best we have ever worked with. Steve has a good eye for detail and will always cast a valued opinion if he thinks your build specification/material choices will not suit the project. We liked this approach. We did change a few specifications on the house build along the way {enhancements at our request} that Belverdale accommodated without any major drama. We have already recommended Belverdale to our friends and family. - A.Roylance

When Steve at Belverdale finished my extension, I was so pleased with everything they had done I had said that I’d be more than happy to recommend them as often you hear nightmare builders and not the good ones! The reason why I was so delighted with the work they did and would recommend them is because 1) they absolutely stuck to the schedule of work, so week on week I knew what would be happening and I could plan accordingly 2) Steve, before during and after (even after I had paid the outstanding balance!) has always been contactable and reliable. I was nervous that once they had my money – they would be gone. But that has not been the case. I’ve needed to call Steve once or twice (just for small things, may I add) and he’s always responded really quickly. I would definitely use them again – for simply the reason is I found them to be reliable and competitive. - Sonia
