Some repointing and insertion of 1-2 helibars Bricklaying
I was having real difficulties finding a builder who'd take on the small job that needed doing. However, Terry responded first and phoned; then he turned up when he said he would, and completed the work on the agreed day. He explained how the treatment my bricks needed worked, and then worked to the professional standards he'd been telling me about. (He also put a patch on a brick that had got bashed by the local youth for me. Now it looks just like the other bricks and won't be of further interest to the little horrors.)
The quoted price was exactly within the range suggested by the surveyor, which was reassuring.
Definitely recommend Collins Brickwork highly, I shall be back to Terry soon to get the side of my house sorted. Thanks Terry!

Replace a collapsed boundary wall. Bricklaying
Terry promptly visited us and gave a reasonable quote. The day before the job he knocked down the remaining wall and cleared up all the bricks and rubble. He rebuilt the wall to an extremely high standard of workmanship. The wall looks several times better than the original one. He also cleared up after himself, leaving the place spotless.
Terry is a pleasant, very friendly, honest and hardworking man. I am glad I found Terry via ‘My Builder’. I will definitely hire him again and highly recommend him for any type of building work as he is extremely talented and knowledgeable.

GARAGE WALL AND SIDE WALL TO,BE,BUILT Bricklaying
I have been extremely pleased that I hired Terry Collins to rebuild my garage wall,which was falling into my next door neighbour's garden,due to a previously bad D.I.Y. job. Terry had to knock down an existing wall,which was falling down,and put up fencing all round my garden,also.Terry,and his mate Bruce,arrived every day on time,they just got on with the job,they didn't keep stopping for tea.Terry is an excellent bricklayer,and he is very skilled at his job.He cleared up after himself at the end of each day.I found Terry,and Bruce,to be very cheerful and amiable,also very honest,trustworthy and reliable.
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Terry Collins,he is an excellent,multi-skilled tradesman.
You just could not go wrong,if you hired Terry Collins,I feel so lucky in finding him on "My Builder".He has very good communication skills,and will be very fair and honest, at all times.Terry is a very likeable,pleasant,hard working,and trustworthy man.

Brick & block laying. Bricklaying
Terry has set out and built our extension brick work and blockwork to a high standard, he has been very reliable throughout, always being on site as arranged, and has a wealth of building experience to call on and will suggest ways to save money where possible, so I can easily recommend his services to the mybuilder community.

Re-build front garden wall Bricklaying
Terry has done a great job of re-building our front garden wall, we're very happy with his work.
He came out promptly to give us a quote, which we received by email in writing. When we decided to extend the scope of the work to having the standalone pier re-built and having a tile creasing course, he responded to emails promptly and gave us a revised quote.
He wasn't quite the cheapest quote we had but there wasn't much in it - one person told us we couldn't have a creasing course on a 4" wall, so I can only assume Terry has built ours out of scotch mist. ;)
Within a week of accepting the job he and a labourer turned up to demolish the existing wall, with all waste carted away and the site left clean and tidy. He returned the following week to build the wall.
Terry arrived promptly each morning and got straight on with work, was polite and friendly and cleared up after himself at the end of each day. The end result looks great.
It seems I may have started a trend down our way of having old, dilapidated walls being rebuilt because he had three enquiries while he was here from neighbours. I can happily recommend him.

Leaking Flat Roof Roofing
We hired Collins for our roof repairs. They did the job OK but if you use these guys beware as they want immediate payment. This is a problem if you are a commercial company and before we knew it we had and extra £60 in court costs added to our bill without them even chasing payment. Do not hire if you are company as these people are not set up for pay on invoice.

john_rawson - 13th Jul, 2010 Waiting for feedback
Terry is a great guy,
he came round and give us a quote cheaper than the rest.
his quote included some extra bits and pieceis that other tradesmen didnt.
we arranged a start date.
he arrived on time, and cracked on with the job, left him the door keys and went off to work.
when we came back, we couldnt believe that the work had been carried out, the place was spotless.
upon investigation of the work, he has ovioulsy taken time and care to do a great job, blending in the bricks to match, perfecting the finnish to match the wall, and securing the window and door,
he also has reinforced the door so it opens and closes like a dream, gave advice on window sills, and plastered to a high standard.
to be honest, for the price given, i expected it to be to a lower standard than it was, i expected to have to clean up and tidy it up myself, but i cant find a single flaw in this guy.
i will definetly be using him again.

Small Wall Needed Bricklaying
Fast, efficient and a no nonsense approach to the job.
Explained exactly what was required when he came to quote, provided a number of options/solutions to choose from, turned up on time on the day, and (equally importantly) no hidden extras or unexplained increases to the agreed price.
Very obviously a professional in his field and someone others should seriously consider using.
