  • Replace front steps and repair wall

  • Internal wall built plus infil around doors and windows

    Mark did some brick work around the outside of the house plus building some internal walls. He was great to work with, punctual and reasonably priced. He did a great job. Would definitely hire again. Thanks

  • Partial demolition and repair of garden brick wall.

    Mark has been a dream to contract with. He replied quickly to my original post, came round promptly and priced the job extremely fairly, giving me plenty of options to work with. He was extremely easy to get on with and knows his trade well.
    He worked here for two days, in quite horrendous heat and has done sterling work. My rebuilt wall looks brilliant, and my repaired front wall looks better than new. We discussed extra work while he was here, some carpentry, and it is brilliant.
    He and his employee were friendly, polite and tidy. I have no complaints about the work and would definitely employ him again in the future. Highly Recommended.

  • To make a window opening bigger

    A very good builder!!! Had a kitchen window that I wanted to take from 900x960 to 1100 x1500. I had put the job out on this site and I shortlisted mark as he was local...I am glad that I did! He came over and I had shown him what I needed doing. We had agreed a price and a day that work would start. He came to site on-time and was very upbeat about it all. Nothing was too much trouble. After over coming many problems with removing the old lentil the job quickly took shape! Now, we agreed that all mark had to do was arrive, make the opening bigger and that was it. I would clear up, I would make good, I would install the window. However mark has such pride in his work that he cleared up, at the end of a very long day he helped me secure the window for me to glaze, and on the next day he came back and made good!!!!! All of which was not included in the price! As I said, he clearly takes pride in his work. I am happy to vouch for him and be a reference, anyone that needs building works doing look no further. He is fair, honest, goes above and beyond, and even offered me advice/ideas on a few DIY things that I will be doing in the near future. When I have other building works that needs doing I will be most definitely using him!!!!

  • Small retaining garden wall

    Mark did an excellent job of our wall, which I know couldn't of been easy due to having to first dig out huge tree roots! He even suggested and carried out extra strength work to our existing wall. The finished wall looks great and exactly what we wanted. He was friendly, tidy and quoted a good price. Highly recommend and would definitely use him again should we need any more work done in the future.
    Many thanks Mark

  • Mending a garden brick wall

    Fantastic job at very reasonable cost. Already hired for next project. Excellent quality of work, all done to a very high standard - the repaired wall looks even better than the original, beautifully in keeping. Clear quote in writing, Mark gave me different options to save costs. Mark was prompt, reliable, efficient and no mess as he cleared up as he went along. There were a couple of unexpected problems with the adjoining walls and Mark came up with creative options to deal with these and at no extra charge to ensure that the finished repair work was safe and looked perfect. I'm very pleased with the result and will be using Mark again shortly. I have already recommended him to friends.

  • Small retaining wall

    I had an area of garden excavated and a retaining wall put in.

    Several people gave me prices for the job, however mark was the only person to properly come around to inspect what actually needed done. He then gave me a far better price (1/2 as much) as other people quoted. He gave me a time a date when he would arrived and he was there. Myself and my wife work shifts and mark was able to work around these. An unexpected problem arose half way through the job and mark went ahead and fixed it at his own initiative and cost - as it would have delayed things waiting to hear back from me.

    The job took several days and on packing up each day the garden was left tidied and in good order. The job was finished to a very high standard, I'm very happy with the work and I would happily recommend him to anyone.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Mark has refurbished my outbuildings so that they could be used for utility and storage rooms. He was very reliable, did exactly what he said he would do in the timescale and in in the quoted price. He took everything in his stride and probably did more than he quoted for - I was very pleased with everything. He did a first class job and I wouldn\\\'t hesitate to recommend him.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Mark took up an old patio and laid a full new patio for me, including steps and a small stone retaining wall - about 25ft long and 1 1/2 ft high. Since then he has done some tiling in my bathroom. His work was excellent, he was reliable on time, quoted a time and price and kept to it. He provided a skip to clear all the rubbish. He did a really good job and I am very happy with it. I have recommended him to other people.
