Gareth it was a pleasure to work with you on the remodelling of this house. A very big project for us but you were terrific throughout and employ top quality tradesmen. Standards of workmanship and finish are excellent and we couldn't be happier. Many thanks Stephen and Sancha. - S c
Gareth and his crew came highly recommended to us, they took on our extension and right from day 1 they hit the ground running. The pace of progress was astounding, the crew always turned up on time and were cheerful and friendly. Contact from Gareth was excellent with regular updates, and if they weren't going to be on site for a day or 2 he would let us know. A few extra things were needed as the build progressed but Gareth always managed to find a spare pound or 2 in the budget. Project finished on time, to budget and most importantly to an excellent standard, so we would happily recommend them to anyone thinking about a big building project. Neil Armour - N A
"We had a disastrous oil spill in 2016, necessitating demolition, site clearance and rebuild of both our semi-detached house, and our neighbour's. Gareth and his team were professional, friendly and efficient throughout the works. The site was very tight, and the building work had the potential to impact on local business if lorries/diggers/deliveries obstructed access. This was never a problem, and I was delighted with the friendly way both neighbours and customers were handled on every occasion there was even a brief problem. Highly, highly recommended."

Gareth Roddy is an outstanding builder. He came in half way through our project and provided a first class service, completing our house to a very high standard in an exemplary manner. He proved very easy to work with and has given us a house of which we are very proud. We have already and would again highly recommend him for any building work. Jonathan and Christine Rea - j R
My project was the renovation of a stone cottage built around 1900 which I wanted kept in traditional style with the addition of a modern barn on the side. The old cottage was always going to present some challenges due to its age but Gareth and his team dealt with any issues thoroughly in a very professional manner. Gareth understood the importance to me of keeping the integrity of the old building and we were able to expose some of the original stonework and reuse original stone to build a garden wall. Most of all I found Gareth very approachable, easy to work with and trustworthy. Contrary to what I might have expected from builders they stayed consistently on the job, often putting in more hours than expected and kept a very good level of communication throughout. I found the whole project extremely satisfying and I am eager to find another project to work on in the future! I thoroughly recommend Gareth and his team for any kind of building work. - R I
