Dear Greg, Over the last couple of years Alderson’s has done a lot of work on my house, including adding an en suite bathroom, French windows and a Juliet balcony to the 4th bedroom, completely re-modelling the main bathroom, boarding out the loft, re-roofing and adding a remote-controlled Velux window. In a second project, you built a side extension comprising an office, downstairs toilet and utility room, patio, driveway, fence, new boiler and added a bespoke hybrid sun room/conservatory that I designed myself. I am completely satisfied with your firm’s work on these projects. The great improvement in convenience and comfort that my family is now enjoying is proof of the excellence of your advice and the high standard of work your firm delivers. Throughout the projects I greatly appreciated your own punctual reliability and keeping me informed of the time-scale of work without burdening me with unnecessary trivia. I particularly appreciated being able to keep in touch with you via WhatsApp and the very quick replies I always got to my messages. This was especially convenient when I was abroad or on the road. I was very pleased with excellent standard of work delivered by your staff. Their work was skilled, and any criticisms I made were immediately remedied without quibble. Everyone struck a good balance between following my suggestions but at the same time giving me courteous professional advice where their experienced suggested a better way. They worked in a disciplined and professional way, were all good humoured and cheerful throughout the job (a continuous flow of tea and coffee oiled the wheels) and obliged any request I made. The suppliers and auxiliary firms you recommended to provide the flooring, doors, utility room design and fittings, and cobbles and slabs for the driveway and patio were all excellent and provided a good and suitable choice and balance between cost and quality. - Gillian

Hi Greg and Ian, What began as an idea back in March of this year and then suddenly turned unnervingly real in September as our house began to be dismantled and then water invaded has come to a happy end with everything turning out just the way we envisaged, and better. We chose Alderson because of your good reputation and recommendation by other satisfied customers, and we were not disappointed. Everyone has been professional, courteous and respectful around the house, worked very tidily and cleaned up which was refreshing, and nothing ever seemed too much trouble. The sub-contractors were all pleasant and very efficient as well. So, to Paul, Bob, Ian, Derek, Gavin, big foot Ben, Steve, Derek, Jeff, Ian and those whom we will know by face even if we never formally met and those whom I may inadvertently have missed out with apology, a big thank you for maximising the job and minimising the personal disruption to ourselves. Ian Dunn is a wizard at pulling everything together so efficiently and the operation ran like a well-oiled machine. On top of it all you finished ahead of schedule and if not for the Chicken it could have been even earlier. You deserve congratulations! We have no hesitation in recommending you as a company from bottom to top. Have a few beers on us and merry Christmas. Thank you again for giving us such an amazing extension and so much more.

We live in Belmont, Durham City and we recently made some major alterations to our house. When deciding which building company to use we got some really good recommendations for Aldersons of Ushaw Moor so we decided to use them. We are so glad we did, it turned out to be a great decision. Right from the start Greg was involved in helping us to plan what we wanted to do and advising us every step of the way. His team of workmen were a pleasure to work with, every single one of them was very professional, courteous and couldn’t have been more helpful. The quality and standard of the workmanship has turned out to be outstanding and Greg project managed the job all the way through so we had nothing to worry about. The job was finished within the scheduled time and within budget and we are so pleased with the finished article and the job that Greg and his team did for us. If anyone out there is looking for a first class building company then look no further than Aldersons, I would heartily recommend them and would have no hesitation in using them again.
