Removing two internal walls Conversions - General
Fantastic work and service.
Adam and Julie were able to come and quote at short notice, what made them stand out from other builders was the amount of detail they went in to. They were the only ones that noticed that there was a chimney in the wall. They went through what that would mean for building and structure. It all made me feel very reassured.
The quote was provided within a couple of days. I've had experience of quotes taking weeks. This was produced quickly and in detail.
They organised for a structural engineer to come out and sign off their plans, Plans which were shared with me, and in such detail that I could send them off to my kitchen designer.
The speed at which the team worked was excellent. Walls were removed and the floors were swept within a day. They went above and beyond when they tried to find a new radiator after my existing one wouldn't fit in its new location.
Fast, Professional, well priced.

Qualified Builder with insurance Conversions - General
met Julian on first day she went through what was going to happen. Adam was so good with communicating and made me feel at ease. The only issue was I wish they used more of a curtain to protect the lounge as rubble was flying everywhere, even when Julian did her best to clean it up also another builder said Adam could have used a better supporting block to hold the lintel more securely though the work was passed so other than that they was fine. Adam did want to leave my door (to another doorway not the large opening) lintel in as it was a old wooden one but the inspector said no. I also wanted to leave it in but it wouldnt have passed building regulations. Other than that thanks for your work adam

Removal of internal wall between kitchen and diner Conversions - General
From the start, Adam and his team have been amazing! Adam really knew his stuff, giving clear advice and a great value quote. Chris, and Lee (plus Julia) were such a pleasure to have in the house to do the work- they were tidy, great to chat to, knowledgeable and worked really hard to get the work completed and to an excellent standard. They were considerate about all the detailing and talked me through all the stages. Couldn't recommend highly enough. They even helped out an elderly neighbour get home safely! 10/10 top tier lads and a 10/10 job.

Load bearing wall-I want it gone! Conversions - General
Adam and his team were outstanding in removal of chimney breast and knocking down load bearing wall to open kitchen/dinner.
Adam provided quote on a spot and explained all the proccess in detail, didn't feel pressured at any point.
Team has a 'can do' attitude and ensured they discussed everything before proceeded to work each day. Very punctual, hardworking with great communication. Also, unlike other contractors Seb and Chris didn't have tendency to cut corners and completed extra jobs without having to ask.
Will trust no-one else to complete future projects around the house! Look no further and go ahead and book your quote today.

Remove load bearing wall Conversions - General
I invited Adam to quote for the job after reading all the good feedback on My Builder.
Upon meeting Adam he explained simply the entire process and put my mind at ease that he knew what he was doing. His competitive quote was the clincher and I hired him for the job.
I am so glad I did as the whole process was hastle free and simple. Adam and Seb turned up when they said they would and completed the work over two days. They cleared up after themselves and all waste was removed from site as agreed. I was pleasantly surprised that even though an internal brick wall was removed there was minimal dust created.
The building inspector from the Local Council came round and passed the work saying that it was a very good job.
I think that says it all about this building company. Their communication is first class and work is done to a high standard.
I am so glad I hired this company and would have no hesitation on using them on future projects or recommending them to family and friends.

Chimney Breast Removal Conversions - General
Adam and the team were great throughout this job. Prior to us even booking in with them we were slightly nervous about aspects of the job, as it was the first time we were getting builders in our new house, and Adam came around one evening after finishing another job to go through our questions about the chimney breast removal. He explained everything in simple terms and we made the decision to go with Guardian Developments. From booking in with them they started within a week. Before they began we had a few issues we uncovered and Adam told us ‘they deal in solutions’ and helped us work through them.
Seb and Kris were there for the duration of the job, with Adam joining for the plastering. They communicated really well while they were here, letting us know how they were getting on and where they were up to on the schedule. I managed to maintain working from home while they progressed with the job. The works overran slightly, mainly due to lack of light in the rooms being worked on, but this was just a couple of hours mainly for tidying up.
I am glad we went with Guardian developments and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to carry out similar work.

Renovation to form an open living /kitchen diner Conversions - General
I am very grateful to Adam and his team for their overall excellence in completing my project. They carried out extensive renovation to the rear of the property, including removal of a load-bearing wall and an entire chimney breast, rebuilding an external wall, replacing a floor and levelling a floor. Adam and Seb were a pleasure to work with. They invested a lot of time and effort early on in the planning and quotation stage of the project, which I found especially valuable and helped build confidence in the project. The work was completed to the agreed time frame, and to a high standard. The whole team were polite and considerate and enabled us to live in the house during the work while minimising disruption. Their communication was especially good, and I felt completely involved in all decision making and problem-solving. With the scale of this project and the nature of the property, it was inevitable that additional work would be required, and when it was I had confidence in Adam and the team to offer practical and effective solutions. Overall I can recommend Adam for his delivery of the completed job, as well as the highly personable and empathetic way he goes about his work.

Chimney breast removal Restoration & Refurbishment
Highly recommended building team!
Chimney Breast removal - very dusty job, they helped me keep two rooms in the house virtually dust free so I was as least able to continue some normal life for the 4 days that the job took.
Communication was clear throughout.
Very tidy and respectful whilst working.
Super finish on the job itself.
Wore masks and were Covid aware.
Due to Adam having to rest up doctors orders Seb & Kris worked until 7PM on a Friday to get the boarding and skimming of the plaster finished on the date promised!! You cannot ask for more. Great price too.

Removal of load bearing wall Conversions - General
Throughout the process Adam and the team were hard working, reliable and trustworthy. We had an internal load bearing wall removed alongside other work to create a kitchen dining space and we are delighted with the way it has turned out. Adam could not have been more helpful and was punctual whilst keeping us updated with the ongoing work. He was always happy to answer questions and checked in with us regularly to ensure we were happy. If anything cropped up (as things inevitably do during building work) he took the time to talk to us and set out options whilst ensuring that we did not feel pressured into anything. On top of great work, Adam and the team are approachable and polite and cleaned up regularly after their visits. Having work done to your house can be stressful but Guardian Developments made it a pleasure.

Internal wall removal Conversions - General
Adam and his team were honest and professional from start to finish. He contacted me and after taking the relevant information from me was able to give me a ball-park figure so I could decide if I wanted to continue. He then arranged a time to come and view the site, and from there was able to give an accurate quote but also took into account any potential problems and was able to tell me what might need to be done and how much that would cost.
They were able to book us in very quickly (within 2 weeks) compared with every other builder I contacted. On the first day he checked that the plans were correct from the structural engineer and discovered that the engineer had over estimated the wall thickness and therefore the weight of the wall. He contacted the engineer and was able to get them to correct their plan accordingly within the day: this new plan meant a substantial saving for us. Adam could have arranged for plans to have been drawn had there been an issue with our engineer.
On the job, Adam and his team worked hard to get the job completed in the time they estimated and in fact finished a day early. Throughout the job, Adam was honest and kept the place as clean as is possible.
Overall an exceptional team who made what seemed like a slightly daunting prospect a simple, clear and well constructed job.

Block doorway, remove structural wall, open doorway Conversions - General
Adam and team were an excellent hire. Saying I'd happily go out for a beer with all of them says a lot. Polite, cheerful and very easy to deal with. And there to knowledgeably answer questions whenever needed - they definitely know what they are doing.
Before and throughout the works, Adam was fast to answer all my far-too-many questions, which is a definite confidence builder and certainly not a trade norm. When our door/window order was delayed by 8 weeks, due to Covid backlog, Adam was very helpful finding other, trusted suppliers we could get these in time from, before the due date for our first baby.
Internally, we had a wall removed. And various structural supports added, external door blocked up, and a new, studwork false ceiling. All structual calcs/building regs followed correctly and knowledgeably throughout. And extra jobs done without question, to get what we needed done, such as move some copper pipework so a new part-suspended ceiling could be as high up as possible.
On our external kitchen walls, we had a window opening enlarged, brickwork removed below a window/the width of the opening reduced for our new doorway, brickwork completed for the blocked up side door, an old, defunct window bricked up and a porch removed. The new brickwork matches extremely well, perfectly keyed and pointed. Very skilled bricklaying. New window and door fitted perfectly.
All works neat and tidy, completed to a very high standard. Highly recommended. Thanks Adam, Seb and Tom.

Demolish a wall and fit a patio door Conversions - General
The moment I spoke to Adam on the phone to discuss my project I knew from my gut feel that I found someone who I could trust. He was polite, well spoken, knowledgable with tons of experience & was someone who I thought I will get on with which was important to me. Originally, the project involved knocking down an external wall to fit a patio door. Due to the lockdown, it gave me the perfect opportunity to renovate the whole ground floor of my house. I had this idea since I moved in to my house 15 yrs ago to have an open plan living room & kitchen. To do this, I had to change the plan by repositioning the patio door to the other side of the room, moving the kitchen area, block up the back door & knock down the internal load bearing brick wall between kitchen & living room by approx. 4m. Adam was very accommodating of this change of plan & completely put my mind at ease by reassuring me with his knowledge & experience in structural modifications & wall removal. He also planned the project from start to finish. What I was most impressed about is that Adam & his team were more than capable to remove the walls and install the RSJ beams to support the upper floor of the house, the team under his employ covered all the trades/skills needed to put the house back together - bricklaying, plumbing and electric work to name a few. The project was completed on time and in budget. I would highly recommend Guardian Developments specially to anyone who needs structural work & wall removal.

Knock out kitchen wall, fit 2 x UB Conversions - General
We were delighted with the quality of the work from Guardian.
Adam recommended we make small changes to our initial plans which enabled the job to be completed to the same end result but much cheaper. The work was delivered on time and to the budget agreed. Without this knowledge I am sure the job would have taken longer and been more expensive.
Adam and his team really grafted on what was a difficult job. As well as being hard workers, they are easy to get on with which is important when they're spending so much time in your house!
Any extras not in the initial spec were clearly communicated in a transparent way, and it never felt like they were trying to upsell additional work; rather it was a collaborative effort to find the most cost effective way to get the job done.
They left the house clean and tidy at the end of each working day.
Overall, I have found it difficult to find quality, reliable tradespeople but Guardian were excellent. I would highly recommend them for any structural work you may be undertaking.

He knew what he was talking about and was very professional so I hired him. The job is top quality. His van broke down throughout the process though he didnt let this stop him. He moved heaven and earth to get the job done, even working weekends and staying late. He has got a good vision of how the final project will look due to his knowledge of many different trades and can therefore foresee any snags but more importantly how he is going to overcome those snags. 100% would recommend Guardian!

Guardian Developments's reply:
Thank you for the feedback. I am sorry you feel like this and although I am surprised by this bad review 4 months later as in your own words we came to an agreement which left us out of pocket and you with a job which was 95% completed with only paying 70%. This should highlight the manor in which we handle these situations and shows we always put the customer first.
I could counter everyone of your statements but I don't want to go down that route. I would just like to take this opportunity to respond to this review as I can only respond to negative feedback which is so rare.
I would like to encourage who ever is reading this to read all the other reviews and this confirm that we are still a very highly rated company and this is review is just circumstantial. I can not even say you were a difficult customer which is why we came to an agreement. You said you where happy with the terms and told us to leave the rubbish and fit the door handles your self as you would use the remaining money to complete the project yet you felt the need to leave a bad review months later and have blocked all points of contact.

Kitchen knocking through, windows supplied and fitted. Conversions - General
We have recently hired Adam of Guardian Developments.The Job was to knock through from our lounge dining room to the small gallee kitchen, to brick up existing back door, install a window and create a new doorway with french windows onto the patio, After receiving 5 quotes, 3 of which were from My Builder. we decided to go with Guardian Developments.
Adam was decent genuine person, he gave us a good idea from the beginning of what was possible, with a lot of flexibility with regards to the job, and with accurate pricing.
The job itself was quite complicated as it involved replacing and adding additional steel work. The job required opening out our existing double room, knocked through into the Kitchen. Adam was very easy to work with, he priced up different aspects of the job, which gave us confidence in his ability to deliver on our budget. He was always quick to come back to us with any questions or alterations to plans we discussed.
The structural work and installation of Double glazed french windows and additional window was completed prior to lockdown. It has been a really difficult time for most of us. Adam was in constant communication with regards to finishing the job, and even offered to do extras to help get the job completed. In such a trying time Adam has shown his true colours, going out of his way to ensure we were happy.
I can thoroughly recommend Guardian Developments, and would not hesitate in hiring them again.

Knock down non-load bearing wall Conversions - General
I can highly recommend Guardian developments. When I found out that the wall was actually load bearing, I almost gave up due to exorbitant quotes I got from several builders, however Adam and his team were able to complete the job skillfully to a high standard at a fair price. They removed the load bearing wall and put RSJ steel beams in place. Adam fully explained what he was doing to address the specific requirements of the job - including regulations and party wall agreement - and made an excellent and tidy job of protecting the floor, the existing furniture and other rooms from dust and damage and also tidying everything up after each working day. His expertise with building regulations and his good relationship with builder controls were key to succeed on the builder control's inspection which made this job completed earlier than expected. Once the inspection was successfully done, Adam and his team plastered everything up very quickly at a very high standard and they also hoovered and cleaned everything up - inside and outside. For my convenience and piece of mind, they took care of hiring a skip and also protected the floor to avoid damaging the driveway flags. Definitely their job stands out among all builders I've hired. My neighbours and I are very pleased with their service, courtesy, punctuality and tidiness.

Plastering was top notch as is drying beautifully as I type.
Great man, great team, first class service.

Install longer beams to load bearing walls Conversions - General
We had two 4m steel beams installed between our house and a new extension and we're very happy with the work completed. From the initial quote to the day the work was done, Adam turned up when he said he would and delivered what he promised, arranging the structural calculations and building regulations for the new beams within a short time frame too. Adam and Seb were a good team and completed the installation in a day, even staying until 6:30pm to finish that day! They were professional and friendly throughout and know what they are doing; I would use them again. Cheers, Chris.

Adam agreed to come & look at a job for me, quite a distance away, knowing there wouldn't be any work for him at the end of it as I just wanted a second opinion. He only charged £20 to cover petrol & gave us some really helpful advice. A pleasant helpful guy - would definitely go back to him if we have a suitable job needs doing. Thank you!

Please be very careful if you employ this builder.. my life has been a nightmare since employing this man.. I did pay him in advance £4456 after he convinced me he was ordering byfolding doors & window .. the window & door as never materialised .. also my outside brick work remains unfinished after Adam making arrangements to send Builder to my house, the builders never turned up.!!. on the first day Adam was due to start work 26th June he didn’t turn up.. this was also the day my brother was taken into St Gemma hospice dying of cancer , I manage to get in touch with Adam in the late afternoon .. the excuse he gave me was he had taken sleeping tablets & had slept in!! Because I was trying to be with my brother I did believe this man!! Adam was always fully aware my brother was in the hospice I give him a house key .. Adam lost the key & he never apologised I have had to have my door locked changed .. my brother died in the middle of all of this Adam is also aware of this !! Adam promised he would return £750 to me by the 3rd september & also send someone to finish the outside brick work.. this has not happened I am now having to pursue a claim against him through the small claims court & I am also writing to trading standard so they are aware of this company

Guardian Developments's reply:
Although I think this feedback is unfair and far from the truth I appreciate it was an difficult time. I asked Karen if we could put the job back due to the current job we were on asked for extras and I prefer to complete one job before starting another, her exact words were yes whenever your ready I have my brother to worry about. The same night I got a text saying she expects us there tomorrow and was enraged that I said I can’t now because of what we had agreed. Following this she said she didn’t have the money so would have to pay on her credit card. This is the reason I asked for the money up front because this was a red flag for me. She was convinced we was trying to con her from this point and became a very difficult customer constantly changed her mind and creating delays. We decided to stop the job and return her money which My builder can confirm I have done.
In my other reviews there are comments like Best builder I’ve met in 25 years, absolute dream team, polite professional, ect. I also have a perfect score on a similar site.
I admit that this situation could have been handled better on both sides and wish her all the best in the future.

Bathroom fitting Bathroom Fitting
We are very pleased with the design and installation of our new bathroom by Adam and his team. Unlike many traders (who frequently try to 'convince' you of particular design solutions and usually premised upon what they find easier and more cost effective to pursue), Adam genuinely listened to what we wanted in terms of design and quality of finish. From start to finish there was good communication, diligence to the project as a whole and real attention to detail. Adam leads a great team, and particularly he worked alongside Jake throughout the installation. They clearly work well together and were always very positive and considerate. A really important strength is Adam's mastery of a wide range of trades, enabling a fully joined-up approach. He was able to fully transform our bathroom!

From initial contact through to Job completion, Adam was highly professional, polite, on time, kept us informed and did an amazing job. Adam installed RSJs into my Victorian house which has got 2 foot minimum walls - his great experience/ knowledge meant this was done with ease and nothing too much trouble. The quality of the work that Adam and his team did was amazing - all deadlines met, tidy work and hard working. I would not hesitate to recommend Adam in fact he is the best builder I have had in 25 years that we have been in the property.
