Prestige Construction Nottingham Ltd

  • single story side extension

    Prestige construction won the business based on Ricky's friendly personality and his credibility and quoted experience. As the job progressed his lack of skill and experience started to shine through! To cut a very long story short we were left with a house that was unsafe as our extension and removal of party wall led to the the side of the house dropping 4.5 inches. We were forced to move out for 3 months and lost more than just money on this disastrous project. Prestige construction have been banned from working in Rushcliffe as a result of the work they did on house.

  • Double, side. Back extensions and remodelling

    If you want work carried out by a professional firm of builders who have great ideas, then look no further.

    Firstly, I would like to state for the record that I had never met Rickie from Prestige Construction before the tender process. When I met Rickie, I was looking for a large double storey extension on the side and a single storey on the back with extensive remodelling inside.

    My first impression of Rickie was very good; he clearly knew his stuff, and he gave the impression that he would bend over backwards for us. From the outset, Rickie said that the key to the project was making sure we communicated regularly, and he was right. He always gave us plenty of time to make our minds up about what we wanted, which meant that the final result was exactly what we were looking for.

    Throughout the course of the renovation, Rickie and John (his right hand man) were the epitome of professionalism. They were accurate in the initial assessment of the scale and cost of our project,our job was done with care and precision. Both Rickie and John are gifted builders, and throughout the project the two had some great ideas on improvements to the renovation and, more importantly, on reducing the overall cost

    I interviewed 5 different firms of builders for this project and did my homework on all of them, and I have no doubts that I made the right choice when choosing Rickie. I honestly can’t thank Rickie and John enough for everything they have done for us.

    Thank you

  • Remove wall, add steels.

    I would recommend prestige construction for a job well done and completed on time. They stuck to their original budget and left the house tidy after completion. They resolved any outstanding issues quickly and effectively with no fuss whatsoever. We were impressed enough to request another job from them (new window) which they completed quickly and perfectly. I felt they were approachable at all times for advice and help. Thanks!

  • Removing internal load bearing wall in 3 story terrace

    Rickie is very reliable and did a very professional job removing our internal load bearing wall. Would def recommend Prestige/use them again for future projects.

  • Single storey extension

    We hired Rickie as once we had contacted him he came round the same day, we had specific requirements and a set budget,he worked with us, advised on some changes which have really made the build look great, Rickie and John are friendly, he has always kept to his word, we aren't the easiest customer and Rickie worked with us on everything.

    We would recommend Prestige as they kept on budget, did a great job and the finish is excellent.

    Great thanks to both Rickie and John.

  • pointing

    John and Rick have been great and nothing has been too much trouble. Any little niggles were dealt with straight away and they were a pleasure to have around. I wouldn't hesitate to recommended them or hire them again when we do more work.

  • Interior wall removal, steel work, small ext & roof

    We employed Ricky to remove an internal wall and reroof a small extension adding a roof lantern. We had previously commissioned architects plans and structural calcs and we had also had quotes in from other builders.
    Ricky investigated the existing structure before quoting and suggested an alternative build which was considerably cheaper than the other builder.
    We gave Ricky the job and he turned up on the date and time advised, completing the work for the quoted price.
    I would recommend Ricky, he came up with a design and build that was more suited to ourselves and our house.
    He came in on budget, saving us several thousand pounds on the original plan.

  • Full length of house rear single story extension

    Rickie and his team have been brilliant. Cost was exactly on budget and they worked well and did everything we asked for. When there were small problems they fixed them with no quibble. I would 100% recommend them.

  • Change archways into doorways

  • remove load bearing wall

    would definitely recommend prestige construction job well done and completed on time.

  • kitchen tiles

    I am very pleased with the job u did for me I would highly recommend you thank you

  • Double Storey Extension To The Back

    I really dont know where to start.
    We had dreaded doing our extention because of all the tv progs & how you hear of what has happened to others.
    we found this site back in january of 2014 & put our advertisment on here for a builder
    to do a double storey extention.
    I was contacted by 5-6 builders & had quotes from them all.
    We chose to go with Prestige construction because if Rickies first visit, not only made me feel comfortable but had ideas we had never thought of.
    We had cheaper quotes we had stupid expensive quotes, Rickie was in the middle of them.
    After a visit to one of his references we decided to go ahead with the build.
    Rickie first said it would take 16 weeks & was very happy it only took Rickie & his team 12 weeks & that included anew kitchen we had not originaly said & decking outside the bi-fold doors we had not originaly spoke about.
    All the way through the build Rickie had ideas to change things, some good some bad but over all we are very happy with the build.
    We would recommend Rickie & John (top man) to anybody who is thinking of any work to be done, as Rickie is aware we will be using again for the next project.
    It was a hars 12 weeks for us living in the property but hard for Rickie & John too doing things around us living here.

    A massive thank you to Rickie & John for all they have done.

  • New front windows, Guttering, soffits, facias,rendering

    I cannot stress how happy I have been with the service provided by Prestige, Ricki and John have been magnificent. The work has been completed to a very high standard. Ricki and John are accomodating and have been an absolute pleasure to do business with. I would asbsolutely reccomend them. Having to choose tradesmen can be a daunting prospect, this should no longer be the case. Ricki and John are meticulous, thorough and just genuinely nice people. I will be using them and only them on all future projects. A real pleasure backed by quality workmanship. I am employed by Barratts PLC the largest builder in the country, I cannot recommend highly enough.

  • Extension and Refubish a Bungalow in Skegby

    We engaged Rickie and Prestige to complete a large project on our new home and are absolutely delighted with all aspects of the work and the final result. The work involved a complete renovation of the existing house and a large extension. Rickie and John immediately impressed us from the first meeting and we were delighted when their quote came through as one of the most competitive ones and they delivered to this cost which was remarkable . The work started in April and completed in November and it has been a pleasure to work with the Prestige crew during this time, in fact we miss their bright and early good mornings and our relationship with them has been excellent throughout. The quality of the tradesmen has been superb with each trade taking a real pride in the quality of their work and them all showing a strong desire to do the best job possible for us. We have had issues which were fully discussed with us and solutions agreed on quickly. We also appreciated a number of suggestions that Rickie and the team made during the work. They recommended a larger sky light than we were planning & this advice was spot on. We also wanted real wood floors but Rickie suggested a floor tile which I was really not convinced about but again his advice was spot on as it looks absolutely brilliant and our six different floor levels are now magically one single flat floor throughout. I've run out of characters to write more but happy to act as references & have many photos to share.

  • Rear single storey extension

    We had been planning our extension for some time, Rickie explained how the work would be done and even gave us some ideas we had not considered. The fixed price quote was very competitive which included all planning and inspections. Time scale longer than some builders had quoted but we appreciate that it was necessary and are delighted with the results. Workmanship of all tradesmen was very good and all were approachable and keen to achieve what we wanted. We now have a much improved living space and would like to thank Rickie, John and all involved for a job well done.

  • Conservatory dwarf wall

    Very pleased with the job that Prestige Construction and Interiors did for us. No complaints whatsoever and would recommend them again and again. Thanks Rickie.

  • Single storey extension

    Rickie and his team have been fantastic. Rickie was the only builder who came to give me a quote and displayed any vision. Other builders asked what I wanted whilst Rickie advised me on wha could be - just what I wanted! Rickie has a great team of subcontractors, from Colin the brickie who turned up at 8am promptly each morning, to Martin the plumber, Mark the Joiner and of course Dave/Graham who made me cups of tea. Rickie listened, advised, kept me informed and most importantly came back to rectify any little snags. I would without doubt recommend Rickie and Prestige Construction and would willingly work with them again. Everyone is impressed with our new kitchen and we would have never ended up with what we have, had it not been for Rickie's vision and consultation throughout

  • Convert loft in victorian terrace (conservation area)

  • Wall removal

    Rickie and team did fantastic job!
    Exactly what I asked for
    Would definitely recommend and will be using them again!
    Many thanks

  • window removed

    brilliant and kept to word, would definetly recommend to anyone

  • doorway put in

    Good work complesed quick and at a good price, will use again

  • porch

    Despite taking 3 weeks longer than the predicted 1, the job ended with a flourish and i'm very happy with it.

    I sought 5 other quotes, one was a little short of twice Prestige's, the other 4 never replied. Nonetheless, I paid precisely what was quoted and that was before the job was assessed. Given the previous high quote and the other 4 'no shows', I'd have been daft not to take the offer.

    I'm happy with the outcome.

  • extension

    We hired Rickie because he provided a very competitive quote, met us several times to discuss things before we made our decision, and was very approachable. This continued throughout the build of our 2 storey extension, with loft conversion. We are grateful for the hard work of Rickie and his team, in all weathers, wind, snow and rain over the winter. It was a challenge replacing our whole roof in these circumstances, and the cover they provided to protect our house from the weather worked well. We were obviously anxious, and Rickie did his best to reassure us. It was a big job, and Rickie accommodated our needs to change things when needed. The work involved building a retaining wall, as our house is on a hill, single storey rear extension with folding sliding patio doors, double storey extension to the side, and loft conversion. The team completed all aspects of the build and fitted and tiled our ensuite bathroom. We have identified some snags since completion, which are to be expected on a project of this size, and Rickie has been very good at coming back to resolve these for us. we are extremely pleased with the finished project, and many thanks to Rickie and his team.

  • Ground Floor Renovation

    We hired Prestige to do our ground floor renovation and extension last May. During pre-sales we were told that the project would take 6 weeks. Unfortunately, the last tradesmen left our house in early December (7 months!!!) with the work still not finished to the standards we expected.

    With regards to Prestige, they do have some good points. Their price was competitive and they were helpful with finding kitchen suppliers and other utilities during pre-sales.

    However, they also come with many areas that they need to immensely improve upon.

    In our opinion they are poor in:

    1) Preperation and Planning.
    2) Communication.
    3) Attention to detail/Finish Standard.
    4) Damage to property and time to fix such damage.

    Rather than write another long essay on everything that went wrong/we were unhappy about (a 6 page dosier was sent to Prestige) feel free to email me if you would like to see pictures of the work andrew_hodgson at yahoo.co.uk.

    Prestige Construction Nottingham Ltd's reply:

    it has taken a while to digest these comments and formulate a reply as im flabbagasted .The work didnt finish after seven months it was on time on budget and excellent as normal .it has taken nearly 1 year for this client to register a feedback to my builder ,the reason for this is because they were charge extra by there architect for upgraded steel drawings as the ones for the job werent sufficient as we pointed out to the building inspector and we had to underpin the footing to make safe,they have now recieved that bill .i can only summise this is the reason for there comments?i will as always openly allow anyone to view our work and speak with our customers to make up there own mind.

  • Removal of load baring internal wall

    For what Rickie charged, he did a fair job.

  • Repair of external cracks + other maintenance

    The external repointing work is neat and I'm very happy.

    I also asked them to plasterboard and plaster a room, which is very well done. Overall I was happy, until they reattached the radiator, overestimating the thickness of the wall and put a 'peep hole' into the bathroom next door, which they have roughly patched up.

    They were generally prompt and quick, although they showed up early/changed the schedule without warning.

    The team were very polite and friendly, and overall good value.

  • build a porch

    Rickie and the boys have done a good job and i will be using them again in the new year.

  • Conservatory floor tiling (Mansfield)

    Rickie and his team did a great floor tiling job for me.

    From accepting the quote, Rickie swiftly surveyed the job, advised on materials and went on to do a fantastic job.

    The job was completed on time and in full, exactly as promised and not a penny over the quote.

    I definitely recommend Rickie for any building or decorative work - he clearly knows his stuff and delivers what is promised. Great value as well.

  • 2nd Storey Extension Burton

    Good value job, needs a bit of reminder sometimes to get things done but always resolved issues even after completion

  • Two storey side, single storey front extension

    Ricky and his team did a really goog job and i would not hesitate in reccomending him. Ricky and his team completed a two storey extension for us plus they installed a new kitchen and boiler for us also as well as replacing our facias. The job changed during the build and nothing was to much for Ricky and his team. All the trades man working for Ricky were first class very polite and i would not hesitae in using Ricky and his team for any future work we may need

  • Extension on top of attached garage providing 2 beds.

  • Tiling Kitchen floor

  • Roof Tiling, Rendering and Garage Repair

    Rickie and his team were friendly and reliable. The work took approximately 7 weeks to complete and the team worked continuously throughout the period.

    We changed our requirements some way through the job and Rickie and his team responded to our requests and were always helpful.

    Any problems were rectified as requested and the job was finally completed to a good standard.

    The job was well priced in comparison to the other quotes.

    I have no problems recommending Rickie and his team and would use them again in the future.

  • salon renovation

    Rickie is very knowledgable with regards to all the legislations required for a commercial building. I found him to be very quick and efficent with all aspects of the build, even when their were issues with the build Ricki would manage the situation professionally. I would recommend Rickie to any prospective client and wish him and his team all the best. Kerry Doncaster Partner & Manager of K Hair Salon & Academy Bingham Nottingham.

  • Replacement bathroom

  • bathroom alterations/kitchen knocked through

    Rickie was so bad I would not let him touch my kitchen job! The bathroom and en suite conversion was a mess and we had to have someone else come in to repair everything. The pipes leaked and brought my kitchen ceiling crashing down in the middle of the night, also the toilet soil pipe leaked into my kitchen onto the worktops.I gave them lots of chances to repair things but it just got worse! The sink was attached crooked, pipes just slotted into each other - I could go on and on but I think you get the idea.DO NOT HIRE THIS FIRM THEY ARE TERRIBLE!!! However I did find another builder on this site scooternick who completed the job for me and everything was perfect - him I would recommend to anyone!

    Prestige Construction Nottingham Ltd's reply:

    .unfortunatly we did have a pipe that leaked due to a faulty stench pipe boss .we had no further problems on this job and am alittle taken aback by such negative critisism as we left the job on good terms.i can understand the customers distress and indeed unhappiness at the soil pipe leak and hold my hands up to that .i will let you decide on the feedback from other customers what you think.

  • chimney flashing repair and roof channel repair

    The inspection of the job was done thoroughly. He then turned up and carried out the repairs when he said he would, and very efficiently. His quote was less than half of some of the others, and he did not try to inflate the value of the job.
    I have a small portfolio of 14 properties, and I would employ this company again.

  • House refurb in order to sell

    Rickie Brunt and his team did a brilliant job for me with a comprehensive house refurbishment. This work included

    New Bathroom,
    New Kitchen,
    Total Replaster,
    New Boiler,
    New Fuse Box,
    ReWire,
    Pointing work,
    Decoration,
    New Guttering

    Due to personal reasons I wasn't able to supervise the job so I needed a builder who would take the house keys and project manage the whole thing. Not only did Rickie make sure that everyone turned up on time and do a great job - he fed back to me regularly on new or changing aspects of the refurbishment with advice on the different options moving forward. This flexible and partnership approach was exactly what I would expect of a professional and I wasn't disappointed. I wouldn't hesitate to use Rickie and his team again and I am looking to do exactly that when buying more properties as investment opportunities moving forward.

    He has my permission to pass on my phone number to anyone who would like to check on this reference.

  • 3m x 3m extension with pitched roof

  • Kitchen refurbishment, with more work to follow.

    A very professional and conscientious company. The standard of their work is top class and the finish was superb. The quote they gave was also very competitive.

    They installed a full kitchen and constructed a conservatory from scratch, with the minimum of fuss and to a tight schedule. They keep their work areas clean and nothing was too much trouble, if I wanted to make alterations to the project.

    All the workmen were friendly and polite, and all were highly skilled in their respective trades.

    I highly recommend this company, whether it be for a small, or a very large project.

    They are now my builders of choice and I will definitely be employing them again in the future.

    To R-brunt and team - Thanks for everything.

    Signed - Mr S. Leach.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Rickie and team converted my separate toilet and bathroom into one large wet-room. They were fabulous - all his workmen were fantastic. Everything he said he stuck to. It was exactly how I pictured it. His quote was fine - what I expected really. I can't recommend him enough. The whole team was fantastic - they cleaned up after themselves too. I would without doubt use them again and would by happy to recommend them.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Ricki did a full house renovation for us this included putting in a new kitchen, windows, flooring & electrical work. He was always on time and kept within the agreed budget, his work was neat and professional and lot of people have made comments on how good it looks and have expressed interest in using him. .
