Awesome builder! Brickwork is impeccable. Can do all works needed to start and finish a build not just bricklaying. Stud walling, plastering, you name it he can do it or knows someone who can. Will be using John again this year for a full house build. All round top bloke!

John has been a great bloke to work with. He works hard, turns up when he says he will, keeps you up to date and clearly wants to do a great job. We had the 'toilet from hell' and John spent ages sorting it out and making sure it was right. John kept the place tidy when he was working and always made an effort to clean the space before leaving each day.
The extension space is great. The plastering is soooo smooth, the lights are just what I wanted and the shower is a joy. The guys he works with are great and I highly recommend him. Plus, he will keep you entertained with tales of the chickens.

Shed dismantle, move and reassemble Garages & Sheds
John is certainly a hard worker and offers very good rates. The project was to dismantle a fairly new shed - 12'x6', and transport it to a new address. Unfortunately, the shed was too big for his van, which was only realised when half of it was loaded. He gave me a reduction on the cost of the work, and thankfully the removal company carried the shed as part of my move a few days later.

Dismantle and remove asbestos garage Demolition & Clearing
What started out as requiring an asbestos garage removal turned into me asking for a quote to also prepare a base and build me a shed and fitting me a fence and gate. John was brilliant in his flexibility and gave me a really competitive quote which I accepted. When John and Martin came to do the work they were absolutely brilliant, very friendly but more importantly very conscientious and skilled in their work. I have been very pleased with the quality of their work and when there have been issues John and Martin have been brilliant at going that extra mile to make sure problems were addressed and I was happy with the work. I think the best feedback I can give is that I would happily recommend John to friends and family and have already asked him for further work.

Demolish and dispose of concrete garage + asbestos roof Demolition & Clearing
I invited John to quote for our demolition job after seeing his many good reviews. Over the phone John came across as an amiable sort of bloke and we agreed a fair price to include the additional demolition of our carport which was not mentioned in my advert. John arrived on schedule with a helper and they didn't mess about - the garage was gone in no time. The carport proved to be the bigger task but the job was still done by mid-afternoon. Not everything would fit in the van, so John had to return for some bits but did so as promised and left the site in a tidy state. The demolition had uncovered some pointing which needed doing, but John took the time to sort this out for us at no extra cost. Great work John, thanks again.

This is the second time I've used John and he's done a great job yet again. He squeezed me in between jobs, and even did a couple more small things for me while he was waiting for the skim to go off. I hope to employ him a couple more times in the future as I am really very happy with his skills and dedication to doing a good job, and his prices are very reasonable. Cheers John!

Garage removal with asbestos roof Demolition & Clearing
I can't thank John Bedford and his team enough for getting rid of the garage from hell. The garage was the simple part but the base and all that lay below was another story. Absolute mountain of stuff. The steepness of our drive was also another major problem.
Even with all these major problems John got the job done in good time and bang on the agreed price. As well as this John always kept me up to date on how progress was going so I always felt well informed, he even came back to give the drive a good sweep. Can't thank him enough and would recommend him to anyone needing any similar work completed. Cheers

I originally hired John to build a 3mtr x 3mtr single storie kitchen extension but because of a drainage problem I had to change plans and apply for a 4 x 3 single storie build plus remodelling of the interior of the house, this delayed the start by eight weeks. The build started on 23rd of July.
John has done a very good job. He is very knowledgeable of building regulations, and nothing was above him. He and his team were very helpful and friendly people.(I lived in the house while the work was been done and they went out of their way to make me comfortable.)John was very considerate with my neighbours. The site was always left tidy and safe.
The extension was redesigned and is now complete and a very nice and modern area.
The original house went through extensive work with walls out, a new downstairs toilet,upstairs shower room,bay windows ,patio door, plastered completely downstairs and a block paved patio area.
I am extremely pleased with the outcome. The work is top class, He is very professional and an excellent job was done at a very good and fair price. I would have no problem in hiring John for any more work I may need doing and would highly recommend him and his team for any building work large or small.
He made a difficult time for me very easy and bearable which is all that is needed in a tradesman

This was the first time we had used John, and also the first time we had used the my builder website after being let down by another bricklayer. John contacted us quickly and gave us the best price, did an excellent job on rebuilding a boundary wall and we were pleasantly surprised that everything was done professionally and on time with the minimum of fuss. We will definitely be using John again.

SINGLE STOREY REAR EXTENSION Extensions
My wife and I embarked on a 38sqm extension in March 2015. It included 3 steel beams, with 1 across the entire back of the property. The existing kitchen and dining room was extended, including a new room and bathroom.
We entered the project with a degree of uncertainty. I was keen to choose a professional, trustworthy builder thus avoiding arguments and miscommunications.
We met John twice. We were impressed by his easy manner, past experience, professional knowledge, reasonable price and equally, his excellent reviews.
The project started in March 2015. John was present throughout. He volunteered updates, left the site clean and made the process as comfortable as possible. No easy feat, as we were still residing at the address with children. The project finished within the time scale and on a happy note.
Other than the obvious bias of my wife and I, who are extremely pleased with the finished project, we equally receive constant compliments from others more neutrally regarded. Those that visit are complementary about the scale of the extension and its impressive finish. The attention to detail and high quality finish that I hoped for, is present throughout.
If your home is your greatest asset, leaving it in the hands of someone else demands a great deal of trust and a jump into the unknown. Based on my personal experience, I am pleased that our instinct was vindicated. Entrusting our project to John Bedford, proved to be the best decision of all.

Kitchen Extension Extensions
;ohn took all the hassle off me and I was surprised how quick the job started. From day one John let's you know exactly what they are doing and what stage they will be at for me this is what makes these builders a favourite - excellent customer service.
John has a fantastic team all polite, clean and tidy at every stage. His apprentice is an absolute star who cannot do enough to help. They are funny, will have you in stitches at times, (I won't mention the soil pipe incident, amongst many more) but are very professional and extremely hard working. I have 2 kids living with me, youngest who is 9 year old and they were great with them, and my kids found them great and seemed like we lost family members when they left for their next job.
I just want to mention the integrity of John Bedford builders, please don't doubt them, you will receive an excellent service and if you are told they will do something, rest assured they will do it. Keep in mind this job started in January and these guys were up against every ailment that the weather could send, snow, frost, wind, rain, gales, on certain days they were unable to work due to these reasons but they carried on and got the job done.
The extension is now complete and both me and my kids love it, excellent work, excellent craftsmen, excellent people, excellent business. Highly highly recommended.
A personal thank you to you John my friend.
Thanks John, cracking job.

Kitchen / dining room extention Extensions
Not knowing any builders we put our faith in My Builder. Really glad we did. We got about 4 quotes from various builders and we pick John as he was very competative with his price and got a good feeling from the start.
We can't recomend him heighly enough. Nothing was to much trouble. The job was finish on time and on budget. As with most builds there was a few unexpected problems along the way and John just sorted everything with no issues or fuss.
We have not only got a perfect extension but also found a friend.
If you want a friendly builder who will do the job to a very high standard and at the right price then look no further.

John and accomplice worked extremely hard all day. They have done a fantastic job of fitting a ladder into a very awkward loft hole, they have moved all of my skirting boards down and plastered any damage left by removal of a wall and existing ladder. I am very happy with the job they did. They were very friendly and kept the house as tidy as possible. They took off their shoes and laid dust sheets straight away right from the door to the room. John only charged what he had quoted despite the job being more difficult than anticipated and the original quote was very reasonable as another company asked for nearly four times the amount. Thanks John, I will be in touch soon with another job for you!

Dig up grasses area and lay gravel Driveways
After receiving a couple of other quotes to have this work carried out we lost hope of being able to afford having the work done. John arrived to assess the area to provide a quote, he had an extremely pleasant and professional manner. He was the only person who took accurate measurements and also photographed our existing gravel to get the closest match possible.
When he phoned the following day to advise of the quote he had for us we bit his hand off as he had the best price and also the best feedback on mybuilder.com.
John managed to fit us in just 2 days after coming to provide the initial quote which was also a bonus for us as we required the work carrying out as soon as possible.
The work was carried out exactly as we had requested in just 2 days and we are over the moon with what John has done.
We will definitely be having John back in the future and have already recommended him to friends and family.
Thanks again John!

Extend house into garden. Extensions
I couldn't recommend this builder any higher. He was hired to build an extention to our house which was for a dining room. The building was completed today (ahead of schedule) and the standard and price of the work was excellent.
Throughout the build John's timekeeping was exceptional. He arrived either early or on time every morning and stayed all day until the tasks for the day were completed.
We encountered a few problems throughout the build (not the fault of the builders) and John went the extra mile to fix all of these and ensure that his original plans for the building were met.
Both John and all members of his team were very approachable and interacted with both us and the numerous children we had around at various times.
If I ever require any further work doing I will not hesitate to use John Bedford Builders and would recommend everyone else to do the same.

Will be storing John's number and will highly recommend him to family & friends.

Plaster Cloakroom Plastering
After being let down by another plasterer, John was able to start the job with 3 days notice. He confirmed by text the day before and then again an hour before he arrived. His workmanship is 1st class, and a genuinely nice bloke. I had no problems leaving him in the house when I had errands to run, and I am already lining up more jobs for him that I've needed doing for ages. Can't recommend him highly enough!

Lay concrete Drive 10m x 4m Driveways
John turned up to quote for the work when he said he would. The price was right. John was on time to start the job and the quality of work was top class, everything was completely cleaned down and tidy when he left. I would not hesitate to recommend John for your building work.

From the first time meeting John, I had a high level of confidence in his knowledge and building skills. There were multiple tasks involved; from an intricate demolition of 3 concrete roofed, derelict toilets [without disturbing a 10’ high retaining wall], to staircase building, incorporating a roof skylight, replacement of broken lintel, removal of an internal wall and making good plastering [inside] and rendering [outside], and general carpentry work. John, Tom and Ben were always on time and did not stop all day every day. Upon leaving at the end of each day, they made the place as tidy as they could. If I suggested changes as the work progressed it was not a problem, and John suggested how they could best be incorporated into the scheme. All three were very pleasant and very approachable – nothing was too much trouble. Their work is of excellent quality and it came in on budget – and is definitely value for money. I know it’s a cliché, [and having been let down by other builders], ‘when you find a good builder – hold on to him’. Owning other property, I will have no hesitation in using John Bedford Builders again for any work I need. Cheers, John, Tom and Ben – We’ll speak soon!

What an absolute gem of a guy. See feedback regarding this job and you will see we was left on Friday night with a hole in our house, because we trusted the work to someone who had clearly never done bricklaying before. So we called John on the off chance he could come out ASAP, he was busy but as soon as I told him our situation he dropped everything to make sure our property was safe. He then returned the next day to finish the outside skin. The workmanship is great, great job and we are safe in the knowledge it was now done the correct way. He really got us out of a hole!! To top it off he actually charged us less than he had originally charged. Great guy, great work says it all. Thanks again John!

Replacement of Driveway & Garage Door Driveways
John has just finished laying a new block paved driveway. I am very happy with all aspects of John's work including the high quality workmanship, his friendly manner and the price of the job. All waste materials were removed and the site was swept and left in a tidy state. I would definitely hire John for further work in the future.

replace gully Groundwork & Foundations
John called to see the task first and gave me a no obligation price that was more than fair. He raised one or two problems he thought might occur and discussed their resolution, prior to leaving. He also answered questions that I raised, in concern with the matter, so I felt re-assured. He took photo's, which I thought was very professional, to help him source the appropriate parts and came at the pre-arranged time to complete the job. He left things neat and tidy. I would not hesitate to ask him again, should anything crop up. Many thanks.

John Bedford`s quote was very reasonable and he has has done a really good job of cementing ridge tiles on my semi-bungalow. Whilst doing the work John found my gutters needed clearing badly and some brackets on the guttering were also missing. John sorted these out for me at no extra cost. He also secured my next door neighbours chimney for nothing! All rubbish was taken away and I am very satisfied with this tradesmen and will certainly use him again if needed.

Re-Point 2 Bed Semi & Replace Guttering Bricklaying
I would highly recommend John and his guys.
They came and repointed my house and re-did all the guttering. Refreshingly they reviewed the job and advised of some stuff that didn't need doing and took money off as a result. Really nice to have such honest people working on the house.
Stayed in touch throughout the job as well and were realy flexible on timings when I was having problems with a scaffolder.
And they've done a really great job as well!
