We would like to thank you for the recent house extension and garage conversion work you carried out for us. From the Beginning of the project, we were impressed with you and all of the MCK Construction staff and contractors. We were especially pleased to see that the quotations provided for the work took account of extras not mentioned on the architect’s drawings, such as replacement and relocation of the heating and hot water boiler, and that MCK Construction ensured this work was undertaken first to minimise disruption. The Construction phase of the project began on schedule and progressed quickly. We were especially grateful for your willingness to come out and discuss the works even during evening and weekends. Building went smoothly, all of the workmen involved were friendly and were happy to discuss modification to the plans as the project progressed. Internal finishing’s were immaculate, and the house was well cleaned at completion. Snagging was dealt with almost immediately. The quote provided was not only competitive but was received promptly and with a full breakdown of works to be undertaken and their costs. Additional Items that we requested were fully costed and explained to us. We would have no hesitation in contracting MCK Construction again and would highly recommend your company to others seeking building work. - Mr R

MCK Construction carried out extensive work on our home over the summer of 2018. A small extension was built, a replacement flat roof installed, internal modifications made, and a new kitchen and bathroom installed. The work was carried out to a high standard and completed on schedule and we are very pleased with the result. The tradesman who worked on the house were all skilled, experienced journeymen who, as well as being proficient, were all cheerful and friendly. They paid attention to details and took an obvious pride in their work. The site was well managed with materials and equipment being delivered as and when they were required. Debris and detritus were cleared regularly. Tom McCrank set out a detailed specification and timetable for the work, kept in touch regularly to review progress and was always available to discuss the work as it proceeded. He was energetic and enthusiastic, ensuring his company delivered the project to a very high standard. We are very happy to recommend MCK Construction to others. - Mr and Mrs F

From Start to finish Tom and his team showed flexibility, reliability and commitment to do a great job. The quote given was competitive and was tailored to work with our plan. Each tradesman showed reliability, working in the snow, evenings and weekends to ensure the end date was met. Everyone was extremely approachable and friendly and had no issue with changing plans at short notice. Tom was in touch with us on a regular basis and we were clear about what was happening at each stage and who would be involved. Tom and his team made the build easy for us from start to finish. Whilst on holiday the team knocked through to our existing home which from all accounts from our family who were checking on the house involved a lot of dust and debris. However, on our return form holiday the house was immaculate which really sums up the work carried out by MCK Construction. We definitely feel that the customer is at the forefront of the MCK Construction team’s mind. Even after the job was complete tom and his team worked out of hours to lay a floor for us that we weren’t managing to get done. The end result for us is a home that we love which has been finished to an extremely high standard. It is exactly what we wanted It was a pleasure working with the MCK Construction team and would highly recommend them to those who are considering giving them work. - Mr and Mrs M

MCK Construction did a full kitchen refurbishment for us as well as sliding wardrobe doors, underfloor sound insulation and plastering. We discussed all our requirements with Tom beforehand and he was very helpful. We were happy with the quote and were assured that there wouldn’t be any surprise extras. The men who did the work were friendly and skilled and overcame any problems that came up (and there were a few) with no fuss. The old kitchen was taken out and the whole layout changed around. Because it is an old property there was a lot of unforeseen extra work that needed to be done. This was all dealt with at no extra cost to us. What Tom Quoted is what we paid. Also, a few weeks after work was finished, we had a small problem with one of the kitchen appliances it turned out to be nothing to do with the installation, but Tom dealt with it willingly at no extra cost. We are very happy with all the work carried out and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend MCK Construction to anyone needing any sort of building work done. We will definitely use them again. - Mrs N

On Behalf of the board and management of Dorward house I would like to commend you on the thoroughly professional job your company MCK Construction has done in building our new garden pavilion. From our very first information meeting to discuss our proposed project I felt that you wanted to do your best for us the client and aim to deliver exactly what we wanted and within our budget. You worked with us to get the price within our budget by making recommendations to use alternative materials other than the specified materials the architect had requested. This allowed us to still have a high quality of finish and all the features were requested in our new Garden Pavilion. The plans and work schedule were fully discussed before the job started and you kept us well informed about the progress throughout the job. Any request we had during the work being done were dealt with and confirmed by your promptly without any problem. It was reassuring that you paid particular attention to the even the smallest attention to detail from the start to finish. The work was completed within the timescale with minimum disruption to the main house and gardens as the site was kept tidy and fenced off for safety. The quality of the finished job is first-class, and I would have no hesitation using or recommending your company MCK Construction in the future. - Mr G

This was a major project for both the scout group and the local community and was financed by a mixture of fund raising, grants and substantial donation and had to be managed to a tight budget. MCK Construction carried out the all the work on the new hall from demolition of the existing building right through to the finished hall. Throughout the project Tom McCrank and his team demonstrated a high level of organisation, skill and professionalism which resulted in a quality building which meets all our requirements. The work team recognised the importance of the new hall to the scout group and took noticeable pride in the completed job. As with any large project there were the usual problems and issues to be dealt with but Tom and his team were always positive an supportive in coming up with suggestions and proposals to resolve issues in a cost effective way which resulted in the build being completed on time and within budget. The Hall Committee responsible for the project are of the view that MCK Construction did a first-Class job at a competitive price and would have no hesitation in recommend them to prospective clients. - Mr F

My husband and I can only say good words about Tom and his work on our extensions / sunroom. From the minute he was given the opportunity to quote for the project, he has shown a passion for the work that was unparalleled by any other builder that we approached. Throughout the build, he has shown what a consummate professional he is ensuring that no matter was too small for him to give his full attention. He was extremely conscientious. When suppliers let us down, Tom Worked diligently to find an alternative solution. His work ethic throughout was outstanding, for example, he came around to check that the tarpaulin covering out exposed house was I place over the weekend when the rain was torrential and the wind gusting. The final job far exceeded the quality and finish that we had hoped for and we are thoroughly enjoying putting our extension / sunroom to good use. Tom took all the stress out of the process and we have no reservation in highly recommending him to anyone. - Mr and Mrs M

MCK Construction built an extension to our house comprising of: a boot room, laundry, dining-room and decking. Internally alterations were also carried out to form a larger third bedroom and a media room. From Firstt contact, the proprietor, Mr McCrank, was very professional and personable. He explained the services offered and after receiving our architect’s drawings, promptly gave us a detailed, competitive quote, payment schedule, start date and build duration. MCK Construction offered a full project management service, dealing with everything from planning authority paperwork to organising all trades. Work Began on schedule and progressed rapidly, finishing ahead of schedule, despite it being a winter build. The unavoidable disruption was kept to a minimum by an impressively well-organised team of tradesman, all of whom were very pleasant and hard-working, without fail, the men turned up at the end of each day. Although we’re reluctant to single-out any one member of the highly professional outfit, special mention must to given to Steven Grant, plumber and heating engineer, who put in the extra hours ensuring we were not without heating and hot water much appreciated in the middle of winter. Throughout the build, Mr McCrank was very communicative and readily available whenever we had any questions. As for the few inevitable snagging issues, they have been dealt with quickly and comprehensively. We are very happy with our house extension, alterations and the overall standard of work from MCK Construction. We have already used them for additional work on our house, will do so in the future and would recommend MCK Construction to anyone. - Mrs F

The build: Started on the agreed date. Progress was made at a good pace, and Tom kept us informed about which parts of the build would be carried out in which order. He even scheduled specific parts of the build at times to suit us. The only time the build stopped (even for a day) was when the weather took over! The quality of the materials used during the build were excellent (even down to the door handles complementing those elsewhere in the house). Both internal and external finishes are for a very high quality. Several problems occurred during the build, but Tom managed all aspects of this and ensured we were aware of any changes. The building Control officer passed all works on his first visit. Post-Build: The house and garden were cleared of debris once the job was completed. We had a couple of minor issues after starting to use the extension, but in both cases, Tom Remedied the problems very quickly. Price: Tom’s quote was competitive, thorough and included all the specific points we had discussed during his initial visit by the end of the build, the only additional costs to us were for 3 items that had been changed by the building control office during the approval process. Upon request, Tom provided a breakdown of payments for use prior to the start of the build. We are very happy with the extension. Both the quality of work and design choices are as good as we expected (and we had high hopes). Tom, Personally, was excellent. From his initial Visit, through the build and beyond h has always made himself personally available to us. He ensured minimal delays during the build and pushed the tradesman he used to be available to suit his build schedule. In summary, I would not hesitate to recommend Tom to anyone looking for someone to manage their build or undertake general joinery work. I would be happy to provide a further verbal reference if required. - Mr M
