  • Load bearing internal wall removal

    John & Nick did a fantastic job at removing our existing wall while keeping the kitchen usable, the work was completed to a very high standard and kept extremely clean and tidy at the end of every day. Would highly recommend and would use them for any future projects.

  • Convert 2 rooms into 1 large space for new kitchen.

    Really pleased with my new kitchen. John, Nick and Mitch make a great team. I had a wall removed between two rooms and the position of an interior door moved. The kitchen was completely refitted including units, appliances, lighting and flooring. Efficient and clean workers. I'm so happy with the job done I am about to have John and his team back soon to refit my bathroom.

  • Garage conversion project

  • Repair leaking ceiling of outbuilding

    I was very pleased with Answers Now. They turned up on time each time and did a full days work each time. They were courteous and professional. They tidied up afterwards. The cost was quite reasonable and they met the challenges of the work head on and did a great job. I recommend them.

  • Refit kitchen and bathroom and new boiler

    My kitchen was quite a big job as it involved knocking a supporting wall through to the dining room. We discussed a plan and I was given good guidance and advice throughout as to what was needed and the best goods and suppliers. The building regs were all sorted on my behalf and the 2 main tradesmen, Nick and Mitch, were easy to get on with. The finished job looks great and I am very happy with it. I am happy to get John to quote for my next job, the bathroom.

  • New Kitchen installation and wall removal

    I engaged the services of John and his company as I wanted to renovate and modernise the kitchen. The work included removing a partition wall to the utility room to enlarge the kitchen space, floor tiling, installing cabinets, fitting new appliances, painting and electrical work. Out of the 3 quotes, although johns was not the cheapest I felt that he had taken more care in giving me a detailed quote (which still seemed reasonable) and seemed to be reasonable and straightforward in his interactions. The whole team worked very well and I am very pleased with the results and so is my other half whose opinion was taken into account all throughout the project. The one thing that was also pleasing was that if we had a dispute or disagreement, John made an effort to resolve it to our satisfaction rather than ignore it or create any convoluted arguments and create an unpleasant atmosphere. John also helped with some other ad-hoc jobs too around the house which was a bonus. A big well done for John and his team for making our plans come into reality.

  • Wall tile removal and create serving hatch in stud wall

    We had a new kitchen with a large hatch into the lounge. It was a fantastic transformation! John , Nick and Mitch were great. Very professional and knowledgeable. We had an leak in our bathroom while they were working and they sorted that out. Can’t speak highly enough. For all the work carried out to complete the transformation it was reasonable. The work agreed was itemised in a contract and any extras agreed along the way. Will use again and recommend.

  • Door widening for wheelchair access and new door fitted

    Job proceeding well, halted due to Coronavirus

  • Home Kitchen and Diner Refurbishment

    John and the team where quick and finished our ceiling to a very high standard. They installed new down lights and left the kitchen tidy as can be. They will be coming for the second fix later in the year.

  • Damp patch on inside of ground floor toilet

    John will be starting the work possibly next week commencing 9th March. He has had the flu and kept us well informed and the reason is obvious that he could not start immediately. He has assured us that we will be notified when he has fully recovered and the weather is appropriate for this type of work. Maggie Trahar

  • Kitchen refurbishment

    Happy with the kitchen.
    Builders were friendly and informative helping with few indecision and changes throughout the process.

    Would employ them in the future.

  • Fit kitchen worktop


    John and his team did a great job for us - could not be happier. Very professional, courteous and right on time. When we encountered an issue they found a work around that actually saved us a chunk from the original costing. They have a wide range of skills, so I still call upon John for honest advice for other jobs every time we have something to get done!

  • Kitchen alteration

    I cannot recommend this company high enough. The work was done with total efficiency. The tradespeople were total gentlemen. They will certainly have my business again. The work was done to a very high standard.

  • gap between house/conservatory/Rotten wood

    Great professional service. John and the team left the property clean and rhe finish on my conservatory exceeded expectation. Would recommend John to anyone.

  • Installation of few kitchen units

    John and his team had been fantastic from the beginning. There were few hurdles from the kitchen unit companies in delivering the goods and John had been quite flexible in his dates. He made sure things were completed on time. Thoroughly professional!!!A+++

  • Kitchen Flood - insurance job

  • Steel beam installation

    John and his team were excellent throughout although the job did not go as planned - on opening the ceiling fully they found the beam did not need replacing at all but that the plaster board on the ceiling had not been screwed in sufficiently. Despite having already bought materials for the original job (as we obviously didn't want a massive hole in our kitchen ceiling for a long time) and having booked his team in for a much longer/bigger job, John advised me of this and arranged for a structural engineer to confirm it (and at a much better price than the original structural engineer who had - wrongly - said the beam was needed.....). All work was carried out quickly and cleanly, and communication was excellent. We are now discussing our next project with Answers Now : )

  • Removal of wall, bathroom and possible kitchen install.

    John, Nick and Mitch were great. Simple as. Our project was to knock down a fake chimney, various walls and refurbish our downstairs. The team demolished all we asked for, then fitted a shower room, kitchen, Windows, a new boiler and various other bits. As the project went on we asked for various other things, which the John and Nick were more than happy to accommodate.
    In terms of quotes, John was very upfront with deposits, payment schedules and additional costs following our requests. The guys were as tidy as possible and always considerate. This is the first time we'd ever taken on a project of this scale and John made it as easy as possible to carry it out.
    I'd definitely recommend John again. Thank you so much, our house has been transformed!

  • Damp conservatory

    I had received quotes from 2 other companies but John was the most professional. I immediately felt confident that job would be done to a good standard and it was. I would definitely use Answers Now Ltd again.

  • sorting out my extention

    John and his team are very personable, each with an easy demeanour and all approachable and helpful in sorting questions or hiccups on the way. John helped us to clarify our vision of what we wanted by talking us through options leaving the choices to us. He gave us a complete breakdown of the work to be done with his estimate. He also gave us a running order for the work.
    The work took a little bit longer than anticipated but the quality of the work and the final outcome is very, very good and we are extremely pleased with it. The work came in on estimate and the site was left cleared. I would recommend John and his team wholeheartedly and we will use him again if we want work doing.
    Thank you to John, Mitch, Nick, Dan and Arden and not forgetting George who came along in his holiday to give his dad a hand.

  • Integrating a detached garage

  • Damp proofing, floor-leveling, windows, WC

    John and his team at Answers Now were contracted to renovate the kitchen area of our new home. John was always approachable, clear and professional from the start considering our lack of knowledge in regards to the work required. John's career experience relating to damp proofing and his friendly, honest attitude was immediately evident. He provided a thorough contract with a step by step breakdown of work required and costs. Additional work was eventually needed in the process alongside a separate builder who was helping us. John and his team happily worked around this and were always available with impartial advice if necessary on any issues. Due to unforeseen circumstances with materials, some of the work was delayed. Answers Now accommodated for additional costs (a specially cut glass shower door). A minor leak occurred towards the end of the work and John and his team were immediately at hand to solve the problem. We now have a beautiful new kitchen area with additional shower in our bathroom. We couldn't be more happy with the finish and would highly recommend Answers Now to anyone who requires professional work at a reasonable price. We will definitely use them again for future work. Our daughter was born during the work contracted and John and his team were hugely supportive during a challenging time in a new home. Thank you John, Nick, Mitch and all the Answers Now team. Keep up the great work.

  • Front Porch

    John is the sort of builder who you can discuss the job with in a very friendly fashion. A few last minute modifications were required such as a different floor and I'm pleased I took John's advice since the laminated floor looks far better than the option I had planned. Good team effort !

  • Garage conversion

    From start to finish, John, Nick and Mitch from Answers Now Ltd have been fantastic - thank you so much guys!

    With a small baby onsite throughout the build/conversion, we were never left with no running water, no warm water and had full use of the washing machine throughout the entirety.

    It was hard work as the boiler had to relocated which required new pipework, a roof lantern was installed and a some kitchen units had to be installed - Nick and Mitch stepped up to do this work brilliantly.

    We (my wife and I) were so impressed that we actually got Answers Now Ltd to revamp our driveway, and Mitch even built us a bespoke TV cabinet exactly to our specification.

    No task was too small or big for Answers Now Ltd - being local, they were on hand for any questions/queries or concerns, and they were answered and we were reassured immediately.

    After the work was completed, snagging was not a problem, and anything which needed to be rectified was done promptly and efficiently

    Now, when anybody ask about recommendations for a builder, I would not hesitate to recommend Answers Now Ltd.

  • Covert small window into a big window

    Excellent family run business. They gave me great advice re: extending windows and I went for bifolds doors which John (Directir) recommended. A decision I do not regret and I'm
    Very happy with. They also fitted my new kitchen. Nick and Mitch were the most delightful work men, I felt totally safe with them in my home whether I was there or not- really trustworthy and being a female customer this was important and very reassuring.
    They listened and gave me sound advice re: decisions about lights and radiators - nothing was too much trouble. I never felt patronised by my lack of building knowledge and I felt they always went the extra mile with explaining things to me and looking at different options if there was a problem. I have already recommended them to others and would not hesitate in using them again :-)

  • Basement

  • Wall removal

    I could not ask for better builders. Very clean and tidy and always early would definitely use again
    Highly recommended

  • Shed repairs

    We were very impressed by John and his team who were extremely friendly, helpful, efficient, and reliable. The work they carried out on our two sheds was of a very high standard, and as a result they both look like new!

    Thank you for your hard work, and we would definitely use you again and would also highly recommend you to anyone else. Jackie.

  • Flat roof, damp proofing, gutters

    A fantastic job done from start to finish. Trustworthy, reliable and professional. Great price quote and very honest. Tidied up after the job.

    Would hire again.
    Lovely tradesmen and very helpful/accommodating.

    I needed my job done ASAP and it was done and done really well.

  • I need my bathroom wall extended into the back bedroom

  • Replacing asbestos garage roof

    I met John through Mybuilder, and as most customers was interested to know how he compared with the other traders that are around. Whether it was plumbers or electricians or builders, John, as the point of contact is upfront, honest and wants to take the time to understand your needs. Rather than costs, I was looking at the type of builder who I can talk to and work with. I was prepared to pay more for people like this. As it turns out John offered good fair comparable quotes to all the others and even better in some places.

    His team work extremely well. On the first day all issues had been discussed, resolved and managed. If my wife or I noticed anything, John would address it and help out straight away. He has also offered to help with a difficult retailer by providing good alternatives.

    We are very happy customers and trust John and his team. So much so that we have decided to continue our relationship and ask him to install a new garage door to the conversion.

  • Fixing plaster following a leak, and damp in vestibule

    John and Nick have undertaken three separate pieces of work for us, and each has been completed to an extremely high standard and finish. John has taken time to assess and discuss options with me, and I have a lot of trust in his opinion. In a couple of cases he advised against undertaking work as unnecessary, and he made sure that the sources of the problems were fully identified and rectified. Both are extremely professional and have kept me updated throughout. I would have no hesitation in recommending them, from initial consultation through to completition of the job. Knowlegable, professional and hard working.

  • Knocking through part of kitchen wall, re-floor kitchen

    This job soon morphed into a completely new kitchen and dining room, including the creation of a large opening into the living room and knocking out a chimney to make more space (requiring two RSJs). Essentially John and Nick have transformed our downstairs, bringing light and space to the main living area. They made every effort to understand what we were looking for and continued to do so throughout the process – their level of communication was outstanding. Given the level of disruption such a project entails, it was a pleasure to have John and Nick in our house. In many ways they went beyond the call of duty, and the quality of their work is reflected in the gasps of amazement when visitors behold the transformation. If you are looking for cowboys who will cut corners to cut costs, Answers Now is not for you. But if you’re looking for men of great all-round skill and integrity, who will work closely with you to create exactly what you want for a fair price, then it’s a no-brainer.

  • kitchen fit, new toilet and room partition

    John and his team have recently completed our project.
    This comprised of partitioning a bedroom into 2, adding a new window, radiator, doors etc, plus refitting our kitchen and converting an understairs cupboard into a toilet for us. They also did some general refurbishing, such as re-plastering, skimming artexed walls etc.
    We are very pleased with the work John has done for us and everyone who has visited comments on what a great job he and his team have done.
    John looked after and managed every aspect of the project, liaising with the Buildings inspector as required, and managing the specialist trades people required for some of the tasks.
    He listened to all of my many queries and questions, helped me to make decisions and generally put me at ease with his professionalism and friendly personality throughout the entire project.
    He often gave me little bits of free decorating advice for things we decided to tackle ourselves.
    I was clueless and very nervous at the start of the project and dreaded the disruption but they did all they could to put us at ease and make things easier for me and my family during the work.
    John happily went along with any changes we wanted to make along the way and was very fair with his pricing and any adjustments.
    He was with us for around 6 weeks and completely transformed our house.
    I would recommend him to anyone considering a project of any kind, big or small, especially if, like me, you have no idea what you are doing!

It was a long job, but they were a pleasure to have in the house, and kept it as tidy and easy to live in as possible. We have recommended them to several family members and would not hesitate to use them again.

    Highly recommended, great service and great value. John worked hard and was very clean throughout the house. Very pleased with his work! I will just have to wait for the walls to dry out to see if the problem is solved.

  • Ceiling water damage

    Would not recommend, job done very well, but guy in charge seemed over worked and was not pleasant to deal with. He had very poor communication skills, a lot of calling/e-mailing was required to sort the payment out.

    Answers Now Ltd's reply:

They were delighted with the work but then didn't want to pay the original figure they'd agreed. Amazing !

I would not hesitate to recommend John to anyone who is looking for a builder to carry out their home improvements. Very many thanks, John!

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    John's company recently undertook damp course treatment works on behalf of our company at two separate properties. John initially undertook site surveys at both properties and provided written reports on his findings, together with recommendations and quotations to rectify the problems. The quality of their workmanship was first class, together with their housekeeping and attitude to health and safety. Both projects were completed within programme and budget. We found John very knowledgeable, informative, conscientious, honest and reliable. We cannot recommend him highly enough.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    We needed someone to repair and decorate the front of our three storey Victorian house and I was recommended Answers Now by a friend. I found them great to deal with as nothing was too much trouble, they seemed to really want to do the best possible job, they were helpful when we kept changing our minds and were always very friendly and a pleasure to have around. We were very happy with the completed work which was finished on time and on budget.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    I would recommend John O'Sullivan to any person who requires a good builder. He did a great job of my new conservatory. The job came in on time and the guys who worked with him were polite, punctual and tidy. The work was great and if we had a problem it was dealt with promptly. There were no add-on extra charges, and the most important thing was we could always get hold of John on the phone if he was not on-site and if decisions needed to be made.
