Hextable‐based Builder Becomes Kent’s Number One Tradesperson

Originally from from the Outer Hebrides in Scotland, at the age of 20 years old Neil of NMW Building Services moved down to London looking for building work. “I got my apprenticeship and came down to London for work.” said Neil.

Neil joined MyBuilder.com in 2012 and hasn’t looked back since. The site has helped him win over 30 large jobs including extensions, loft conversions, general conversions as well as lots of smaller kitchen fitting and roofing jobs. Furthermore, he has also built ten houses from scratch in Scotland ‐ a fact many can’t believe here in London.

What has made him such a success in the area is his professionalism and quality of work. He is happy to have detailed and long conversations with homeowners to understand their needs and wants, and to advise them on areas such as planning permission and regulations. “I write a very detailed quote at the beginning of every job. I price everything myself so it’s listed out where all the money goes from start to finish. From footings to the initial build, costs are broken down to the last screw. It takes me roughly two weeks to price a big job for a quote. There is a lot of work involved, but if you do it properly and honestly, you won’t lose money. The customer will not be surprised with any hidden costs later on which can cause distrust. A homeowner just wants to know where their money is going.” said Neil.

It is important for a homeowner to understand who they are hiring and the quality of work they will produce. Neil goes to this extent to ensure the homeowner’s peace of mind and at the end of the day make something everyone is happy with. He even carries this determination through to the smallest project, like fitting the occasional cat flap.
