  • Review & repair of cracking on existing extension

    Donald provided some really excellent advice and also put me in touch with a specialist surveyor.

  • Full bathroom refit

    Did an excellent job at transforming our bathroom. Went out and sourced all materials, answered any questions we had and did it within the timescale he said.

    We are giving him other jobs to do in our home as he was so good.

    Would definitely recommend.

  • Build an extension

    Don and Dan converted our conservatory into an extension of the living room, laid a new floor, installed velux windows in the roof, repositioned radiators and provided new lighting and sockets. They were both punctual and polite and it was a pleasure to have Don and Dan undertake the work for us. They always involved us in any decisions regarding the work and offered very helpful suggestions about planning and buying materials.
    Their knowledge and the quality of their workmanship was second to none and we would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone wanting any home improvements carried out.

  • Replace existing shower room

    Don and Dan are polite, kind, efficient and resourceful. They fulfilled all the criteria requested and I am delighted with the results. They were both so helpful and attentive, ensuring that each and every task was complete, watertight and beautiful. I would recommend them without hesitation.

  • Remove & Replace Bathroom

    I'm so happy with the planning, management, execution & finish of this job. Don & Dan are both very friendly, knowledgeable, trustworthy, prompt, tidy, hard-working and highly skilled professionals.

    They finished a complete removal and refurb of a very old period bathroom within the timescales estimated and without any hassle at all. They were happy to accept deliveries and venture out to get other accessories that were not on site. Their ingenuity in finding solutions to tricky problems was impressive and their attention to detail shows in the finish of this bathroom.

    Highly recommended, I can't thank the guys of HBBC enough and I'm already making a list of jobs for them to complete elsewhere within the house!

  • Renovation/ updating

    If you are looking at this feedback you are probably looking for a good builder. Well I can save you time because Don ticks all the boxes. He has a great team who he uses, Electrician, Plumber and Plasterer all of whom are top tradesmen. Don sets high standards for himself and his team, he is also open to changes during the job without throwing the teddy out. You will find that if you use Don you will have a pleasant experience without the worry of if you have chosen the right man.

I give them 10 out of 10, and they clean your kitchen too, they didn't leave a mess they cleared away everything. Thanks Guys!!

  • Create a simple storage loft

    Don and Dan were friendly and highly competent. They did exactly what they said they would do for the agreed fee in the time agreed. Very careful and respectful of the house - despite working in a really black and dusty attic they did not leave a mark in the rest of the house. Very sensitive to the needs of my partner and I who were working from home during the 3-day job. Extremely pleasant to have around. Full of highly original and creative solutions regarding how to make the most of the house. Highly recommend - I will use them again.

    Don and the entire team were a pleasure to work with.

  • Single storey extension

  • Refurbishment of kitchen/attic/stairs

    Don and his team did a great job of the work on our house and we're really pleased with the results. We had a few useful discussions with Don before the work started, which helped us decide exactly what we wanted, and Don was great in terms of identifying and contacting different suppliers. The work was done in the timescale and to the budget that we were expecting, and Don was really good at checking we were happy with things throughout the process. We would happily use them again.

  • 2 bathrooms + downstairs toilet + bedroom cupboards

    I am delighted with the work that Don and Dan have done on five rooms in our house, including the replacement of two bathrooms.
    Their timely, clear communications throughout the job, included great suggestions that enabled us to manage costs whilst still getting exactly what we wanted from our new bathrooms and remodelled hallway and childrens' bedrooms.
    They were very reliable and completed significant work to the house with minimal disruption to us.
    All of the work was completed to a high standard and Don was careful to ensure that we were completely happy with everything.

  • proofing and loft conversion

    Dan and Don were very friendly, professional and completed the task faster than quoted and charged for only the time they spent. They certainly weren't your average builder they treated the job like if they were doing their own house always looking for root causes and consulting before doing any work. Whilst sealing some holes in my loft and alleyway they also managed to spot places where there were damp and where floorboards were sinking. Additionally they always say the little things count and up till the last minute that's exactly where Dan and Don didn't mind helping as they helped fixed a jamming door, a wardrobe door (damaged by me :) ) and put up a door bell. In all honesty I haven't come across a better builder, both me and my wife were very impressed and would highly recommend. we would like to thank them once again for such a great job and also a big thank you to this site which allowed me to find the right tradesmen as im sure we all know that's never an easy task! Finally, if my review didn't make it obvious enough, Yes we will definitely use them again!

  • Chimney breast and wall removal in Kitchen

    Don and Dan did a brilliant job removing a downstairs chimney breast as well as all the extras we thought of for them to do while they were there. This included installing a new kitchen units along with sourcing and fitting quartz worktops and all of the electrical and plumbing requirements of the job.

    They also came up with ideas and suggestions to improve what we had planned as well as putting us in touch with the company we eventually bought our kitchen units from.

    Would definitely recommend and will more than likely use them for my next household project!

  • Kitchen and living room

    So happy with the work Don and Dan have carried out for us. Very professional and friendly.would definitely highly recommend them and have them back for any future projects.

  • general heavy building mainly inside an old cottage

    HBBC have finished a total cottage renovation. The previous modernisation had occurred in 1935 so there were many challenges to be faced, many of them unknown. Don and Dan came up with original ideas to overcome issues as they arose and the outcome is delightful. The 18th century cottage is now warm and dry but maintains some ( the better!)of its original features as well as having a very contemporary bathroom. The interior of the cottage had to be stripped of its horsehair plaster back to the stone and then rebuilt with new wiring, plumbing etc.
    They always turned up for work as arranged, keeping to both starting and the estimated finish date though inevitably we asked them to do additional jobs as the need arose. They brought in specialists as required, like a structural engineer, heating engineer and electrician. They were always approachable and adaptable and I felt I could contact Don at any time. Likewise, Don phoned me regularly and even sent me photos of progress when I was on holiday.
    I am very happy with the quality of their workmanship and would reccommend them for similar projects.

  • Velux,Bathroom and Kitchen

    He came, he did the job,he left !! Don did the velux in a couple of days and I am very pleased with the work. Does what it says on the tin....
    The price did increase because we gave him some extra work.

  • Bathroom Fitting in Bradford

    I would have no hesitation at all in recommending Don and Dan from HBBC on the work they do. In fitting a new bathroom, they were very patient, courteous and considerate with my elderly parents and went out of their way to ensure the work was done as quickly and as little disruption as possible.

    In addition, they went out of their way to resolve matters beyond their remit, like swapping the sink because it was not the right size and this kind of customer service is invaluable.

    We would use them for any subsequent work we require in the future.

  • Repairs to Stonework of Terraced Property

    Don from HBBC carried out a major rebuild of a large party wall,overlooking a drop of approx 20ft, suggesting and implementing methods of rebuild to a very high standard. He also rebuilt the main doorway and 2 front garden walls, both of which had been repaired previously by inexperienced builders.
    All the above work was done in a timely manner and on budget, i was also kept informed on how work was progressing. Don also managed other contractors on site, who were working inside my property, in my absence.
    I have no hesitation in recommending Don for any project, i am also retaining his number for further developments i undertake.

  • Full bathroom installation inc tiling

    I hired Don through this site based on the feedback that he had received & am delighted to say it was all true and he & Dan have more than exceeded my expectations.

    My partner & I have an old cottage with old suite, wooden bathroom surfaces and cladding, the wood around the bath was rotten and basically it needed a complete overhaul. First of all Don was able to quote within a few days of posting the job & was flexible enough to quote on a Saturday. They were able to start within a week of the quotation day & were punctual (8am starts & always bang on time!), polite & are a pleasure to have around. Their work ethic & quality of work has been amazing & I am very happy with the finished tiling on walls and floors. Due to the state and age of the House there were some initial problems they encountered (rotten timber underneath the floorboards, slanted walls & dodgy plastering) which they dealt with quickly, efficiently & without any fuss.

    I have taken photos from the start & I will happily post tomorrow once the actual suite has been put back in so you can see for yourself the high standard of work.

    In addition to this, we received 2 other quotes and they were the most commercially competitive so on top of receiving some of the best workmanship we have had in this House (and there has been a lot!) we didn’t have to pay the Earth for it!

    Thank you Don & Dan for all your hard work, you have gone above and beyond & we appreciate it!
    Babs & Dale

  • Refurbish Lounge

    Work completed early, to a very high standard and on budget. The job was quite complex & involved turning out a cellar full of water into a usable space and full refurbishment of the lounge. We are delighted with the finished work and can highly recommend HBBC

  • Loft conversion

    I would have no hesitation at all in recommending HBBC for any job. The loft conversion wasn't easy but HBBC were able to complete this job efficiently and to an exceptionally high standard. They reduced the stress factor to a minimum and were very friendly and reliable. We would contact them as a first choice for any job now.

  • Various

    Thanks to don and dan and all the other recommended tradesmen who joined the crew along the way and contributed to the transformation of my home. The work grew as we went along (as most building jobs do), nevertheless the changes and additions were met with a positive smiling attitude and the job was completed to my full satisfaction. They are extremely trustworthy and will not let you down however difficult the task at hand may prove to be. I am using them for further work which is the best reference I can give!

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    He put in a new kitchen, a new bathroom, a couple of Velux windows in the attic. He was very tidy, and is brilliant, he had a lot of good ideas too, he has very much a creative dent on things. He always had alternative ideas that worked and knew what he was doing. It was very helpful to have his ideas, prices were good too. I would recommend him onwards. He always turned up when he was going to turn up and stayed till it was done, no slipping away like some tradesmen!

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Donald Howarth of HBBC was the main contractor for the full renovation of my cottage. He oversaw all areas of work - electrics, plumbing, damp proofing etc. He was extremely professional and demanded high standards in all areas. The renovation was complex as the property was very old with no regular features. Mr Howarth conscientiously and was not satisfied with any work which did not meet his exacting standards.
