Some Of The Commendations From Satisfied Customers of The Builders SW

Project at Studio Cottage
“Hi Dominic, We were talking at dinner tonight about how Pip may be about to get the next bit of money to finish the house, and I said, “I can’t wait. And once we have it, I’m calling Dominic and he’ll be over here the next day tearing the roof off. He’s been wanting to finish this 

IMAG0056And Poppy said, “That’s why he’s a very good builder – he wants to get things done on time.”

And I agree with her.
I hope you’re well and that we see you very soon, socially as well as commercially.

New Extension
“Dear Dominic,
The work that your did on my extension is amazing ! The very day that you finished the roof, the house felt much warmer, and once the walls were insulated, the extension became a comfortable part of the house for the first time in winter. The work was finished off well, and is exactly what I wanted. I would also like to thank you for your swift response when I had a problem 7 months after you finished. This is good service, and I would recommend ‘The Builders’ to other customers.

IMAG0024“Hi Dominic,
A colleague of mine at Schumacher is looking for a builder for a small project she and her partner want to do, in Brixham I think.
Needless to say, I heartily recommended you, to the point where I was hardly able to believe myself that I wasn’t related to you or in some way getting a commission! Her name is Julie Richardson, and she may be contacting you in the next few days (if she believed me… )

Hope to see you soon. xo

P.S. What’s the news on Pinewood Lodge?! Will we be seeing a lot more of you in the near future? –

Extension, Smithfields, Totnes
“Hi Josh, I’ve just checked the weather and apparently it gets better this afternoon. But definitely not good to work with power tools. Looks better for tomorrow though -thanks for all the hard work. We’re all very excited to see our new extension coming along. Cheers”

Dear Dominic,

Congratulations – you’ve just got a fantastic rating! IMG_3007
You have been rated by Sean:
Dominic and his team had a difficult time with very, very challenging weather conditions an awkward site to access and a tight budget!
However the job was done to an excellent standard and within the budget we had and that was in light of the problems that Dominic effectively and professionally overcame.
We would recommend this team – they were absolutely brilliant we are really, really pleased!
Thank you The Builders

Hi Dominic,
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I just wanted to say thanks for the work you have done for us. Can I request that we have the drawings and guarantees sent to us ASAP for our records. At the time of e-mailing the wind is “blowing a hoolley” and the rain has flooded the roads. I wish you luck with Jo’s and hope that it provides you with further work. I have had many people ask about your work and how we found your firm. I have told them all that you were like Ronseal, you done exactly what you said and you are someone of integrity – which is rare today. We appreciate your offer of the window in Elsie’s room for £400.00 all in and we will be trying to get the money together in time for when you are at Jo’s. We are also looking to have a new wood burner installed which may need lining as well as some hot water for upstairs. We will be in touch and perhaps I will have some spare sausages for you to try. Please let me know if there are any problems with the guarantees for the windows and the drawings as we cannot get any response from Mr C.

Refurbishment of Victorian house in Teignmouth.
“Dominic’s team of workmen were friendly and polite and respectful of my property. They cleaned up after themselves at the end of each day and I was very happy with their work. Dominic and I agreed on the work to be done, stage by stage, and he instructed his workforce who carried out the work well. Dominic visited the site regularly and was always available at the end of the phone. Any problems which cropped up, as they are bound to do in this type of project, were dealt with effectively after discussing all possible options with me. Dominic’s experience was invaluable as he advised and offered options in all areas of the refurbishment, which proved to be effective. I was happy to leave the team in the house when I was not around and they all proved trustworthy and reliable. I wouldn’t hesitate to use this firm again.

Building Job In TQ10
“Dominic does what he says, and he does it when he says he will do it. We were never left stranded, and Dominic was either on site or in touch with us during the entire build. His crew are efficient, hard-working, and pleasant, and the work is impeccable. We truly could not be happier with the Builders SW!”

Project At Studio Cottage
“Dominic, I was once told by a builder that building work has three components – quality, economy, and speed – and that you really could only get two out of three. E.g. if you want a top-notch job done at a reasonable price, you have to sacrifice speed; or if you want things done fast and economically, you would sacrifice quality. In my experience with previous builders, that has always been true. I am extremely pleased to report that this is not true with The Builders SW. I really can’t emphasize this enough! Everyone on your crew is efficient, friendly, polite, tidy, competent, and – best of all – reliable. You and your team are a pleasure to work with, and Pip and I are delighted with the skill and speed with which our extension is going up. We have been recommending you unreservedly to everyone who says they might have a building project in the future. We are just so happy – and from someone in the midst of a building project, that is something!”
Tara Vaughan-Hughes

“Hi Dominic,
We are happy to say that we would like to hire you to build our extension, and hopefully the rest of the house as the budget allows, though as you know, this last part won’t be immediate. In addition to your apparent experience and expertise, we very much like the fact that you are sensitive to our budget constraints and are willing to be flexible in your timetables and work.
Please let us know the next steps, and then we can get started!
All the best, Tara & Pip ”

Roofing job in TQ1
“The quote started off for leaking chimney flashing, but a number of other things were found to need attention. Dominic was upfront and honest as we worked through all the issues to find the right cost effective solution, which turned out to be a full roof, fascias and soffits, ventilation and insulation. The schedule was good despite extras being commissioned to replace large rotten gable rafters front and rear and disposal of asbestos. I was kept informed right through the 7wk project, 5 star service.”

Building job in TQ4
“From start to finish Dominic was always available for advice and updates on the job. We are thrilled with the transformation of our home and very impressed with Dominic and his team. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.”

Building job in TQ12
“Extremely pleased with the standard of work, the attitude and the overall level of service. Dominic never short of spotting an opportunity but an absolute star. Informative, fair and a wicked sense of humour. Smallish job grew over the weeks but no suggestion unreasonable or forced. I’ll be using mulberry again when needed and I recommend others do the same.”

Building job in TQ2
“The job was done efficiently. I was kept informed all the way through the job as to the progress. I was even informed that some work didn’t need to be carried out and that I would have a reduction on the quote. I am very happy with the work and will be using them again in the future.”

Decorative Cornicing / Plasterwork in Totnes Town
“Very efficient, easy to deal with team.”

Flat Roofs in Teignmouth Central
“Polite, hard working and well supervised team. No swearing, radio played at low volume. Made their own tea and coffee. Initiative showed when problems were encountered during the job. All extra materials and work fully explained and justified. Team appeared experienced and skilful. Logistics good, no waiting for materials. Cost as per quotation. Extra had to be paid as a lot of the roof wood was found to be rotten. Paper work a little sparse. I would like to see labour costs separated from material costs. A good job completed very quickly. We wait for rain for a final confirmation of the work. I would use this company again.”

Kitchen Installation in Frogmore
“I chose them to carry out the work I required because they were the only company that actually listened to what my requirements were.
