W&L Building Services

  • 2 Story side extension & single story extension to rear

  • Refurbishment and Extension of 3 bed semi in Cheltenham

    A difficult job as a comprehensive extension and renovation of a 3 bed 1 bath semi, turned into a 4 bed 2 bath.
    All done without supervision and limited instruction.
    A few issues around completion with some outstanding works which took the shine of a generally professional and high standard renovation job.

  • Extend into sideway to build downstairs shower room

    Wes and Lee did a fantastic job on our extension and it was refreshing to have a Builder that keeps you informed and up-to-date every step of the way. Would definitely recommend them to anyone needing building work done.

  • Re-instate fireplace, party wall & doorway to hall

    An unqualified recommendation for Lee, Wes and their colleagues Dave (carpenter) and Andy (plasterer). The job was completed on time, on budget and to an excellent standard. They were flexible enough to deal with minor changes along the way and cleaned up every part of their work area at the end of each day. I would not hesitate to use them again.

  • Renovation of Victorian semi rear extension

    W&L are the most considerate builders I've ever encountered. They minimised the impact of these major works on our hectic family life (adding work for themselves, but not cost to us!) and were absolutely trustworthy. The house was cleared out at the end of each day and the whole site cleared and cleaned on their final day with us. Over 10 weeks, totally rebuilding an old rear extension containing the kitchen and bathroom, we were always able to cook hot meals and there were only 2 days (agreed in advance) when we didn't have a bath. W&L arrived at an agreed time every day and worked full days, sometimes more when agreed. The quality of build and finish has been very good; but most importantly we couldn't get rid of them until we were happy with every aspect of the build and finish!
    I recommend W&L very highly on cost (we got 4 quotes) and quality (I used to work in the industry) and will be using them for all future works.

  • Floor Slab on new Extension

    Work Carried out to high standard, Clean and tidy and kept me up to date on when work was going to be carried out and progress, Would use again and recommend to friends and family.

  • Single storey rear extension

    Lee and Wes built an orangery at the rear of my house on Ashford Road. I have nothing but praise for the outstanding job they did, and the excellent build quality completed.
    Wes's brickwork was even noted as of exceptional quality by a family member who is a quantity surveyor for a large multinational company.
    They updated me continually throughout the build and always remained extremely professional and easy to deal with.
    Without a doubt I will use their services again and have already recommended them to a number of friends and family.
    Every aspect of the build was completed to the highest of standards.
    Lee estimated a build time of four weeks which was marginal delayed due to adverse weather conditions. Despite this he and Wes worked throughout the weekend to get the project back on track, despite me not even raising it as an issue.
    All subcontractors used were extremely professional and pleasant to deal with.
    My girl friend works from home and commented how considerate they were throughout the build, whilst she was working.
    Despite me ordering a set of doors, that unbeknown to be came dismantled, Wes immediately assisted and orchastrated there fitting.
    I will happily allow anyone who wishes to use the services of Wes and Lee to visit my address and see the quality of their work.

  • Above garage extension

    W&L Building Services have recently completed an above garage extension for us. They have helped from day one by putting me in touch with an architect, digging holes to see how far the existing foundations went down and making suggestions on how to proceed. Nothing has been too much trouble for them, including evening visits prior to the start of the project to make sure we were happy with everything. They also have a great team of tradesmen on hand who have all completed their work to a high standard. They have put us at ease from day one, so much that we were even able to go on holiday during the build. We have been impressed that they have been able to match the bricks and mortar so well that it’s very difficult to tell the old from the new. Already had people knocking at the door asking for their details! We would recommend them to anyone.

  • Ground work and block work

    Good guys to deal with but job dragged on a bit.

  • Footings for outside stairs

    Thanks Lee - nice to find someone who turns up when agreed & does a good job with no hassle or issues - even though it was a small job. Definitely happy to use you guys again.

  • Build 2m outdoor supporting wall, render. Repointing.

    Work was done exactly as agreed. All members of the team came over as extremely pleasant. Communications were generally good - on a few occasions people left without telling us and we were uncertain if they were returning later the same day (and we therefore needed to stay in) or if they were coming the next day but phone queries were answered efficiently. Would certainly consider using again.

  • Dig Foundations.

    Fantastic work carried out. Excellent communication. We were extremely pleased with how tidy and polite all of the workmen were. We will be using again. Would recommend to family and friends.

  • extension/convertion

    lee and the gang were very friendly and approachable. took on board every query/ idea given to them and supplied an excellent, if not impeccable service. I have been scared of tasking builders on in the past but with lee, I would more than happily recommend him to everybody, including family and friends.

  • External repair to victorian red brick house

    Lee and Wes provided a first class service throughout the completion of the work on our house. The job comprised repointing (including replacing spalled bricks), chimney reconstruction, window replacement, dormer window recladding, soil pipe and drainage reworking, and replacement of broken tiles.
    The job was completed to time and to budget - when inclement weather slowed progress, Lee brought in extra labour in order to keep on track. For those jobs outside Lee and Wes' specific skills - e.g.replacement windows and recladding - Lee sourced good quality people who were managed in order to fit in with the overall job timelines.
    Lee showed excellent communication skills throughout, via e-mail, text or phone call as appropriate. From his initial expression of interest in our job, he kept us continuously updated on the progress of the job, and was very quick to answer my queries. As snags were encountered, Lee made us aware and offered advice as to the options and his view of the best course of action.
    All aspects of the job were completed to a high standard and the premises were left clean and tidy after completion.
    We would have no hesitation in hiring Lee and Wes for any future work on our property, and would be happy to recommend them to friends.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    W&L built and fitted out a substantial extension at the rear of our Edwardian semi-detached house, above an existing single-storey extension. We were delighted with the quality of the workmanship and the consideration shown by the builders. Lee and Wesley were very reliable, showing up on time every day and carefully explaining the progress of the work and dealing with any issues as they arose. The work proceeded smoothly and on time and budget. We are pleased with all areas of their work, particularly with the quality of the finish in the new bathroom. We were very impressed with the cleaning up which took place at the end of each days work enabling us to continue life as normal. I would be delighted to use their services again and to recommend them to other people.
