    Ray was comptenent and did the job to the best of his ability, he identified a few issues and helped to sort this out. We had to point out some mistakes and made him rectify them at no extra charge. All in all, the job is done and we can start to enjoy the space now

    Wonderful to meet Ray, he was extremely patient with me whilst I went through all the things I wanted to do. He also helped me with few solutions to issues that I was facing with my property. I felt that he listened and gave me positive feedback.

    Will be giving Ray the Job for the full works as his positive can do attitude won me over.

  • Quote for possible purchase to refurb 2 Bed Vic/ house

  • 3 bedroom Terraced House refurbishment Leyton

    Ray and his team have done a full house renovation for me over the last 10 months. They have been professional experienced, knowledge, and incredibly helpfully throughout.
    I have done several property renovations in the past and Ray has been by far the best and easiest builder to work with, making the whole process much smoother.
    The works are exstensive and Ray has supported throughout including advising on a Structural Engineer and private building control to ensure they were on site and on time when needed.
    The works include a rear exstension with large goal post frame and deep pad foundation, glass roof and glass walls to the exstension. This also included a complicated water mains builder over, which Ray help to ensure we could pass building regs.
    Full loft conversion including innovative steel solution to maximise ceiling height and pass building reg.
    On suit wet room in loft.
    Relocated a bathroom & re-organised another bathroom to our specification.
    Full rewire and plumbing throughout.
    Pastered and decorated whole house.
    Laid new reclaimed pine wooden flooring. Tiled flooring in bathrooms and built in wardrobes.
    Ray has been a fantastic communicator throughout, always available on the phone or via txt when needed. I have been incredibly impressed by the quality of everything the team have done.

    I highly recommend Ray and his team to anyone.

    A R K Build's reply:

    Will let the judge decide with the facts should any one see this I have 5 years worth of jobs you can see and talk to coustomers that will beg to differ what qualities I have rather then a diy person who can not keep to a simple contract of building works and thinks he can take some for a ride.
    Also I have ((10)) years worth of refs that people can see from different websites that I am also on.
    Thanks to any one reading the truth alway wins.

    ARK Builders (Ray and his exceptional team are very impressive) and I have used ARK Builders on two occasions to carry out two large jobs on my home. The first job in 2012/13 was to carry out a rear kitchen extension and a loft conversion at the same time and the second job in 2015, Ray and his team carried out a garage conversion, side room extension and installed a 21ft x 10ft conservatory off the back of my rear living room & dining room. When I was first looking for 3 potential builders to quote for the major works I needed done on my home, Ray gave me a very good quote and I was very happy with his price and although it was not just the price that made me choose ARK Builders, it was Ray's knowledge, professionalism and him having over 30 years experience in the building industry that really impressed me even more to put my trust in him to carry out the home improvements I wanted done. ARK builders were very punctual, well mannered and kept to their schedule. At the end of each working day they tidied everything up and left me very little mess. When the work was completed it was done to a very high standard way beyond my expectation and left me completely satisfied. The overall service offered by ARK Builders was great and I would without no doubt recommend Ray and his team to anyone seeking any home improvements as he does what it takes to make sure the homeowner is happy. ARK Builders have now completed £000s of pounds worth of work for me and I will continue to use them in the future. All of the jobs done looks amazing and I strongly recommend ARK Builders if you are looking for a swift, reliable, high quality service.

    Ray's team built an extension to an awkward building in London. They did a fine structural job. Moreover Ray was very creative as a problem solver, happy to deal with changes to the job, and generally a delight to work with. He's a creative, sincere thoughtful and very honest and competitively priced builder.
