  • Reseting of crown chimney pots

    Barry has just completed re-flaunching our chimney and re-pointing some areas of the chimney to. Where shall I begin?

    Firstly, Barry accepted the invite to give me a quote for the job within minutes, and called me to arrange a visit to assess what needed to be done within an hour of posting the job on my builder, impressive! Non of the other invites were even accepted, or tried to contact me.

    As soon as I met Barry I knew he was the builder for us. Polite, timely, professional, friendly, and definitely trustworthy. It was so refreshing to meet a tradesman that I instantly had 100% confidence in to not only complete the work to a high standard, but also complete the work for a fair price and not try and rip you off as can be the case with some trades people.

    Barry completed the work and the chimney has now had a new lease of life and looks great.

    Would I recommend Barry the builder? 100%, you bet I would and as soon as I get some more money he will undoubtedly be getting a call from me to do some more work for us. If you live in the Leicester area and need an excellently skilled and trustworthy builder then you can have 100% confidence in Barry to get the job done for you.

    We all know that there is so many cowboys out there these days and it is always worrying when you have to pick a tradesman to carry out a job that you can not do yourself. Barry is NO cowboy, he is the real McCoy, a top builder and a nice guy.

    Thanks Barry.

  • Installing lintels in a single skin wall

    I hired Barry to put lintels into a wall where a previous botched DIY job (not me!) had caused damage to the wall structure.

  • Repair exterior wall

    I used Barry to rebuild my wall after it was knocked down by a lorry. Barry is a top guy and very professional and carried the work out to a very high standard and was competitively priced.

  • Lintel required over uPVC door

    A great guy. Very helpful, accommodating, and lots of advice. Neat work and tidied up perfectly afterwards. Price quoted was price paid.

  • New installation of lintel over front door

    Barry is an absolute gem of a find. He contacted me promptly and gave me a very competitive quote for the work I required and when the start date was arranged he turned up right on time and commenced work. Throughout the whole process despite many niggling obstacles due to the age and build of my property Barry completed the work cheerfully and without fuss to a high standard. He is very knowledgeable and gave me some sound kindly advice on future works that I was aware needed doing and he was generally very helpful. I have had some horrific experiences with builders in the past but Barry has totally restored my faith as he took very great care of my property whilst working and laid down protective sheets (even though he was working outdoors) and when he had finished he swept, washed down and tidied up to leave my home looking clean and neat. He is a lovely cheerful man and I will definitely be using Barry again for planned future works as I have finally found a builder I can truly trust. With Barry you cannot go wrong, Brilliant.

  • New Garage

    We asked Barry to take over the build of our garage after realising our previous builder was not up to the job. He came and not only did a great job for us, but put us in touch with other contractors (roofer, carpenter, door man etc.) all who have given us very competitive prices and again are very competent workers. The garage is not totally finished, but certainly the work carried out by Barry is and we are really thrilled with his quality of work and the pleasant nature in which it was done.
    Would we recommend Barry to others, Yes without doubt, in fact we still have jobs that we will be asking him to do for us.

  • Roof brickwork - end of terrace

    After months of constantly being let down by builders we came across Barry on this website; can't believe our luck.
    Barry is a personable guy who just cracks on; no fuss and no mess.
    He called when he said he would which was a victory in itself.
    We agreed a price; no quibble or fuss.
    He completed the replacement of a parapet wall on the roof and the neighbours say it look great.
    So we asked Barry if he would re-seat a couple of chimney pots and open up two others; day, time and price agreed and low and behold - job done.
    Then we thought, why not build a patio wall if Barry has a day to spare; job done.
    Barry was extremely flexible working around weekends and weather; can't fault his commitment at all.
    Adrian & Angie

    We needed a scaffolder to accommodate Barry's availability very quickly.
    Craig of cpscaffoldingltd@yahoo.co.uk is worth a call; he helped enormously.

  • Boundary wall

    Very helpful, top local builder would recommend and good contact to have.

  • Bricking up external doorways and plastering

    Barry has completed the job to a good standard.
    The work was 3 different small jobs for a builder, bricking up a garage side door, bricking, blocking up and plastering an unused external doorway and fitting 3 airbricks but Barry gave me a fair price, ensured we got matching brickwork to our existing building which required a special order.
    Barry kept us informed of progress towards the job start and confirmed our requirements as he progressed. He is also tidy and surprised us with how little dust we experienced whilst he cut out the existing brickwork, not always making it easy for himself.
    Barry is friendly, polite, professional and considerate, I would certainly use his services again and happily recommend him.
