Andy Hobson Building Services

  • Replacement fence and some landscaping

    Right from first meeting Andy I knew I had made the right choice. He was obviously very experienced , knowledgeable and friendly. He explained what options were available for extending my rear garden fence in easy to understand language. I had a very tight deadline to get the work completed. Andy said if I was happy with the quote once received he could get it done before the deadline (despite being extremely busy).
    He arrived promptly on the agreed date and worked tirelessly in the blazing sun removing the old fencing, extending the posts to fit a 6ft fence. He also made a large gate at the bottom of the garden. He was very careful and ensured the neighbour's side of the fence looked as good as my side. The end result was fantastic!! It put the existing fencing on the rest of the estate to shame... We also discussed some landscaping ideas for the garden which is quite large.
    Since the new fence went up I have spent every day sat outside. It has provided far more privacy than before.( I never sat in the garden prior to Andy doing the fence...).
    A quality job completed to an excellent standard by a tradesman and a gent!
    I will definitely be booking him again!!

  • Repointing 70m2 of crazy paving and jet washing

    Andy was great! He was upfront about the cost of the job and was accurate to his quotes. He works exceptionally hard and grafts all day! We are a young couple who have had previous bad experiences with builders and tradesman. Andy was very thorough and we have had nothing but a good experience with him. Would recommended to anybody he’s fantastic!

  • Levelling slope in Garden

    This was a huge job and Andy has been absolutely amazing throughout. His knowledge, professionalism and sheer determination on this job has been commendable.
    There were so many challenges with this job (28 tonnes of soil to dig out and remove by hand with no access, the worst snow in years, a dry stone wall that needed preserving, retaining walls to be built and delivery’s cranes into site from a neighbours property to name a few!! ) and I am by far probably one of the fussiest customers he has encountered but Andy was here day in and day out and always polite, respectful and reassuring.
    Andy will always take the time to understand what a customer wants and is able to use his vision to make suggestions too.
    I can not recommend Andy enough no mater what job you need doing he is more than capable.
    Ask him to show his portfolio of photos and specifically the before, during and after photos of this job - it speaks volumes!

  • Slot Drain Installation

    Andy is probably the best workman we have ever used. His punctuality is second to none. It was the first time we didn't need to anxiously wait for a workman to turn up because Andy even arrived before us! He is polite, hard working, helpful, tidy and efficient. We are very happy with the result and we are going to ask Andy to come again to do tiling for us!

  • Redo front yard

    Would highly recommend Andy to anyone his work is first class and he is such a lovely man .

  • Digging out and making drive

    Andy did a fantastic job on installing a ramp for my disabled partner, so much so I also got him to remove a chimney breast from the back bedroom, make a flagged base for my garden shed and also pave a seating area at the bottom of the garden. He is friendly, approachable and will bend over backwards to help with anything. Would highly recommend Andy to anyone needing work done, in fact I already have and he is doing a small job for my mum. Thanks Andy.

  • Flagstones

    Andy was honest and reliable. He did a grew job on my front garden and hope to use him again for future jobs.

  • Driveway/outdoor area work

    Great service from Andy! Quoting was prompt and very well priced. We were kept informed every step of the way and Andy took great care in ensuring we achieved not only the fix we required but a much more aesthetically pleasing result than we had before. Andy's attention to detail was second to none and we couldn't be happier with the result. We've already had two people request his details for work of their own after seeing the results! If we need anything else doing we will be straight on the phone for a quote before anyone else from now on!

  • Extend and surface current off road gravel parking area

    Very happy with the work Andy did. He turned up when he said he would, worked hard and transformed the drive and garden. Happy to recommend his services, and he's a very pleasant bloke as well.

  • Stripping garden of shrubs and trees.

    Andy is the best find ever! We thought we would have to get at least one other tradesman to do the work we wanted doing but no he did the lot and had so many ideas that we went for. He fenced the whole of the garden in despite a naughty neighbour he kept going. He's taken an old hut down, put some walls up that have been admired by many people, taken all the big shrubs out, taken a small lawn up and put a round stone circle in and many more things that haven't been easy in a sloping garden. I don't think there is anything he couldn't do including putting our curtain rails up and helping to put together a large cupboard.
    He is the most pleasant, conscientious, tidy, and hardworking workman and now friend we have have ever come across.

  • Garden Landscaping

    Quick Review: Hire Andy, you will NOT regret it.
    Long Review: I had almost given up on getting my garden upgraded this year before the summer holidays. I knew what I wanted doing, and had specific materials I wanted to buy, but still needed advice in some areas. Andy immediately knew the best way to work would be for me to act as Project Manager and buy materials and just pay him labour. However he advised me on what and how much to buy whenever needed. He worked long and hard, including the warmest day for a decade at 30 degrees centigrade, to make sure the project was completed as soon as possible. His work was of the highest calibre and I am delighted with the end result. I had a strong vision of what this project would look like once it was completed and thanks to Andy I can now enjoy this for this summer and many more to come. Not only is Andy an excellent builder, you could not wish to meet a nicer person and it will be a pleasure to have him working for you.
