Building a skirting around a park home Bricklaying
Stephen is an absolute star!!!! He worked so hard... doesn't seem to stop for a moment, certainly not to stop and chat. My job took about 5 days, it was somewhat tricky in parts but he just got on and did what needed doing. He was here early and left late. It was left so tidy afterwards, and the work is excellent. I love what he has done. I will definitely be using him for all of my jobs that need doing as his prices are fair and he's totally reliable and trustworthy.

Stephen Coyle did an excellent job. From start to finish he delivered what he promised. The quote was the best value received, the job was scheduled for the time requested and the work started and finished on time. The quality of the job is very good and on finishing Stephen left the site as tidy and clean as when he arrived. Stephen also passed on some savings he was able to make. Would highly recommend.

Stephen did a fantastic job staying within the quote he gave. He got all materials and disposed of the rubbish, leaving the workplace neatly. Work quality, as far as I can tell as a layman, is exceptional.
He has very high standards, and leaves a perfect job. I liked working with him as he gave good insight and reasons or choice of material.
Would hire again.

French drain installation. Groundwork & Foundations
We had a problem with damp coming through an external wall. Stephen provided us with an estimate on a Saturday morning and told us the work would take 2-3 days and was true to his word. We arranged our own skip and the work was carried out on time and to the agreed cost. Stephen explained clearly what he was doing and why he needed to do this at each stage of the work; he was quiet and tidy. I would highly recommend Stephen as he is very professional, efficient and reliable. We have additional work that we will be looking to do in the new year and we will be in touch with Stephen when we are ready to do this.

Prepare ground floor, pour concrete and lay insulation Groundwork & Foundations
Excellent work and 25% below budget
Stephen and his assistant did an excellent job of preparing the 70m2 ground floor of a Victorian house for a concrete slab. They cleared out the joists, bricked and mortared the joist voids and then compacted eight tons of hardcore (ready for the concrete pour) - all in three days. They arrived early each day and worked diligently and thoroughly. Whenever they encountered problems with the house (there were several in a house of this age) they came up with practical solutions and got on with it. They did the job in three days rather than the four days I had budgeted for it and only charged me for the three days. I won’t hesitate to hire them again.

He is polite, hard working and his attention to detail really shows – we have had so many positive comments on our new wall already.

Stephen was professional, talented, responded quickly, and did a five star job, neat and tidy, rebuilding a pillar to match others along an avenue of 1920s houses. His communication was very friendly, quick, and we were informed of every stage along the way. I was worried that this job was too small, despite taking a whole day to complete, and Stephen was really willing to take it on. Already we have had compliments from the neighbours who thanked us for making a dangerous pillar safe and beautiful. I would 1000% recommend him!

Pointing a sandstone paved patio Bricklaying
I had a sandstone patio installed 2.5 years ago but the pointing was badly done and failed. I chopped out the old mortar and advertised for a builder from MyBuilder to do a professional job of repointing. Only one builder was interested - Stephen Coyle. He said this was probably because it was such a small job (20 square metres - about half a day) I had quotes from elsewhere but Stephen's was best and I was also impressed with his response time and professional manner. He arrived about 15 minutes earlier than scheduled and spent the time outside preparing his materials. He knocked up the mixes in a mixer mounted on his trailer - no mess on my premises (or indeed on the road). He explained the ingredients of the mix and his reasons for it. He was very methodical and after the job was completed, he made sure that everything was left clean and tidy. It was only a small job and time will tell how well it lasts but he has guaranteed it for one year so I don't expect any problems. I was very impressed and would have no hesitation in recommending him. If his attention to detail in a large job is as good as for my little job, you can't go wrong.

joeb_78 - 29th Jun, 2014 Waiting for feedback
I was very happy with the job Stephen did on mine then my parents drive, totalling just over 100m2.
This included clearing the existing garden of hedges, walls and old block work. Building new boundary walls. Rendering and fitting coping stones. Then preparing then fitting the driveway blocks including the drainage.
Stephen knew exactly what was required and I felt he was very knowledgeable with all aspects of ground works. He started early around 7 - 8 am and worked all day till 5 or 6.
Stephen did a great job and I was happy to recommend him to my parents who are quite elderly as I felt I could trust him to do a good job without me being there. He even volunteered to seal the driveway afterwards for my parents as he knew they would not be able to manage it.

Stephen carried out this task very quickly and did a great job at a very competitive price.
The jobs was to excavate my driveway, remove the waste and lay block paving. He talked me through the materials he was going to use and the method until I was satisfied. We then worked together to get the best price on materials. He provided a very detailed break down on his quotation which increased my confidence levels.
When he conducted the job, he was extremely polite and cleaned as he went to make sure the front of my house was always tidy.

Stephen built blockwork for an extension, he built a brick feature wall, screeded floors, relaid a patio and built new front steps. He is a really hard worker and his brickwork is to the highest standard that I have seen. Visitors and even the Building Inspector commented on how good the brickwork is. I could recommend Stephen as very punctual, dedicated, and his workmanship is of the highest order. We are over the moon with his work - we couldn't be happier. I would 100% recommend him.
