TWO STOREY EXTENSION AND GARAGE CONVERSION WITH INTERNAL ALTERATION WORKS Following an architect’s recommendation, we approached Stuart to quote for a two-storey extension (with a large extension to the roof), a garage conversion into a kitchen, bathroom re-location, extending of a porch area with a large vaulted ceiling, and other major structural alteration works. We were impressed with Stuart’s quote, which was competitive and was the only quote which was backed up by a written analysis of all the works, on a room by room basis, that were included in his price. We didn’t get this from any of the other builders that quoted, and this detailed and professional approach was largely the reason we appointed Wise Builders to do the work. Throughout the building works, which was approximately 6 months, Stuart and his team were punctual, reliable and considerate. Stuart managed the whole project including organising all required building works inspections. We were kept well informed of the plan of works for each week and if changes were required, due to bad weather. In addition, his team were considerate, polite and tidied up at the end of each day, ensuring that all areas were left safe and secure overnight. This was important, as we lived in the house (with young children) for the whole time the project was ongoing. Furthermore, Stuart was very helpful in putting us in touch with a structural engineer and a decorator in addition to recommending places from which we could obtain quotes (e.g. for new kitchen / bifold doors). As the project progressed, various changes to the original plan were made. Stuart happily accommodated these changes, the pricing impact agreed, with works carried out as a continuation of the original project. We are really pleased with the high-quality work that Stuart and his team have done for us, thank-you very much! We would highly recommend him to anyone considering future building work. - Karen

Garage Conversion & New Driveway We approached Stuart after seeing his work elsewhere in the village, and after gaining “vague”quotes from other builders found him to be the most professional, and importantly someone we could definitely work with. Work commenced on time and started initially with the demolition of an old party wall and removal of a dilapidated asphalt drive; we were very impressed with the speed of work and a new driveway/boundary fence was soon in situ during some of the hottest days of the year. Extension of a partial garage conversion followed, and Stuart kept us fully informed on the project and talked us through every detail of the works. The job was completed on time to the highest standard, and we were impressed with the tidiness and minimal disruption to our family life whilst work was being carried out. I would not hesitate in recommending Stuart and his team, they are a credit to the building profession and we look forward to working with them again. - Steve

Wise builders gave us a competitive quote to tile and fit a shower and screen in our bathroom. They filled an old vent hole and plastered the walls ready for tiling, some water pipes also needed repositioning under our sink. We also asked at short notice for some new taps to be fitted which they also did. They arrived on time everyday and cleaned up after themselves,they were very friendly and offered advice and were keen to listen to what we asked. We were very happy with the end result and would definitely recommend Wise builders. - Andrew

" Following a recommendation from an acquaintance we approached Stuart Wise to quote for a large extension and conversion project which had complicated aspects surrounding knocking down internal load bearing walls as well as extending. From the moment we met Stuart we found him to be professional, thorough and proactive and when we received his quote it was the most comprehensive of the 3 builders we had approached. Once we had appointed Stuart and agreed a start date we found him and his team to be reliable, punctual, polite and considerate for all the time that they were working on our project. This was especially important as we had to live in the house during the 4 months of the work so there was an extra burden on the team to tidy and leave everything in a habitable state at the end of each day. There were challenges along the way as you would expect, but because of his approach we had a great deal of confidence that the solutions we discussed and agreed we're in all our best interests before any action was taken. There was a fair amount of mission creep and our plans then extended to bathroom renovations and garden landscaping but even with the additional work added Stuart was flexible, rates were agreed and the work was carried out as a continuation of the original project. All the work of Stuart and his team was to a high standard and we would have no hesitation in recommending Wise Builders." - GT

We had a 5m rear extension, outbuilding conversion, major internal structural alteration work, plumbing and kitchen fitting done by Wise Builders. They have done a excellent job and we would not hesitate to recommend Stuart and his team. From the very start Stuart was very clear and always helpful. Throughout the project he has made everything very smooth and if we had any questions, he was always available to happily discuss any queries. The whole team was extremely efficient and always on time, worked really hard to finish the project on time and not to inconvenience us in any form. The job was done to the highest standards and with attention paid to every little detail. All of the team are trustworthy and reliable, and we are very happy with the completed works. We would always choose Stuart and his team to do any building works, and also would not hesitate to recommend Wise Builders to any potential customers. We can not thank him enough for what he has done. Wise Builders are definitely worthy of the Federation of Master builders status. Thank you Mr and Mrs Longfoot - Tom
