College Town Construction

  • Pointing a side wall to house

  • Lay slabs 10x2.5m

  • Block paving for a footpath

  • Replace sloping shingled drive

  • Replace decking with stone patio

    Easy to work with, lovely job, completed within a week. Thoroughly recommend.

  • New patio

    Very happy with our new patio. Charlie turned up to quote for the job when he said he would, unlike others we had asked to quote for it. He offered advice as to how it could be done. And best of all, he started on the job a week later. All done for the Friday evening beers! His team worked hard to clear the area and then had the unenviable task of getting all the materials into our garden, which hasn't got the best access. We highly recommend Charlie and would happily use his services again.

  • removal of asbestos roof of shed and new roof

    Charlie Sheen and his team made a very good job of shed roof. They worked really hard and I was informed of progress all the time. The job was finished to a high standard and I would certainly recommend this firm. He is currently replacing shed floor and paving the garden. I will leave feedback when these jobs are finished.Thanks for finding me a reliable builder so quickly.

  • New Patio and Wall + Path

  • Patio

  • Paving path side of drive

    We were very pleased by the quote and the ideas for our drive. We needed a path to enable us to pull a wheelie bin rather than on the gravel. They did an excellent job and we are delighted with the result. They worked very hard and we're no trouble at all. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

  • Paving a courtyard garden

    The guys have done a great job in our back garden. Completed quickly over 3 days,friendly and knowledgeable. Would happily employ them to do other similar work.

  • Lay charcoal block paved drive

    Sid and his team were very polite and considerate about their work. They were not the cheapest but the price was fair. The weather did hamper smooth progress of the driveway as it rained and snowed unfortunately. However, Sid did keep me informed of when he would be turning up and eventually all was completed in about a month due to the inclement weather. The finished product we are happy with and I would recommend Sid and his team to all. Andy

  • 5 x 5 m drive way

    Very nice people. Gave practical advice and completed the job in good time.

  • Patio & Retaining Wall

    We had a retaining wall and patio built. Charlie did a fantastic job. The price was competitive and he acted very quickly and efficiently, offering advice and samples for different types of stone we could have. The work was done quickly and completely hassle free from our perspective.

    The final product is great. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting similar work done.

  • Repair work to front driveway & new patio required.

    A real challenge faced this team right from the onset. No problem would seem too small for their attention or too big for the teams abiliy to overcome. The outcome from Sid and Charlie’s hard work, not forgetting their back up labour force, is a beautiful patio, smart fence, puddle free driveway and a very happy customer. Thank you😊

  • new driveway

    Sorry for the belated review.

    Charlie and his team carried out the work in a very efficient and no fuss manner. Started the work earlier than i expected him to be available which was a bonus and finished super quick also.
    His quote was one of the best we received and we had around 5 other quotes to look at. He also stuck to his quote so there were no surprises.
    His team were polite, on time very morning and happy to communicate what was going on with the job.

    I would certainly recommend him to others and would not hesitate to hire Charlie and his team for other work.

  • Drop kerb & driveway

    Sid & Charlie (father & son) did a great job of digging up an old pathway & laying a new block paving driveway. They gave me a very competitive price but without pressure & their team all worked really hard, non-stop, so the was job was done in less than 48hrs. No long breaks leaning on shovels here!
    They were polite, courteous, tidy & helpful, explaining things as they went. They even returned the next week to add more sand after heavy rain had shifted some the night it was laid, before it had a chance to settle. I would use College Town Construction again.

  • Additional Block herringbone paving 16 sqm

    College Town Construction is a small family business with a very professional approach. The quote was knowledgeable and very prompt. They came on time and finished the job in two days as promised and to a high standard. The pricing was very reasonable being the median quote. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

  • Block Pave Driveway

    Highly recommended. Very impressed with result, it exceeded my expectations and was delivered at a very reasonable price.

    Job was completed within time, budget and to a high standard. Team was professional, hard working, focussed, worked constantly; no idleness and the work supervised throughout. The site was left in a clean and tidy state. Once the work was completed, Sid and Charlie returned to apply some finishing touches and check the work in the daylight.

    Work is guaranteed for 5 years for peace of mind but with such thorough ground preparation work I doubt I will need the guarantee but it is a 'nice to have'. Will definitely use again in summer as have some other garden work i.e. shed roof that needs to be repaired.

    College Town Construction's work ethic and workmanship are outstanding. I definitely chose the right contractor on MyBuilder to sort out my block paved driveway and have already recommended them to my friends at work.

    I want to add a photo to show just how fabulous the results are but am unsure how to do this.....

    Thank you Charlie, Sid and team.

  • sort out garden for sale of house

    Charlie and Sid, put in a new lawn, and an addition to my patio, which they edged with sleepers. They were friendly, fast and a reasonable price, I would definitely use this company again

  • Driveway paving and other pathways

  • Levelling of garden

    This is a very late review of the work completed by College Town Construction.

    The quote was very clear for the work I wanted to be done, which was essentially removing all the brick work, levelling the garden (which had a slope by about 1m), building a retaining wall.

    After the work commenced, Charlie suggested a few more things to be done, and we also agreed that he would remove some of the pavement slabs for block paving.

    The team working arrived punctually each day, and worked quite solidly with very few breaks throughout the day. All the workmen (I can't remember there may have been up to four different ones throughout the whole time the work was being done) were courteous and polite.

    The work required a fence to be removed for easier access, which College Town removed and completely replaced at the end of the work.

    The work was completed now one year ago, and so I've had the opportunity to see if there are any problems, any issues with the work, any errors, etc. Would I use them again? Yes, without any hesitation. I've been extremely pleased with the work (I see on their website they have a couple of images taken of the garden before and during the work - you can see for yourselves - the standard of workmanship).

    Sid, Charlie and the team did a FANTASTIC job with our fence, driveway and the design and build of the beds for our plants in the front garden. They are simply THE BEST professionals we have come across since renovating our house. From the honest advice on the design and competitive quotation, they really did everything they said they would, on time and in a way that has made us very very happy. EVERYONE gives us positive comments on our front drive, saying that it is EXCELLENT - this includes other tradesmen. Definitely the nicest people, great family firm and certainly know what they are doing. If only everyone was as BRILLIANT as this...No hesitation to recommend them. 10/10.

    They solved the damp issue. There are other issues on that wall and I would hire them again. It was a father/son team that came to the house, both friendly and did a good job. After the job was completed, they tidied up and explained in detail what they did.

    Thanks
