Latest reviews

  • Build front step on block paved driveway

    I had an excellent experience when Rikky came to build a front step on our driveway. We needed the work to be done in a short timescale; he turned up on time, was polite and friendly, and provided a reasonable estimate for the price of the work. On the day he arrived right on time, got straight to work, and left the site immaculate. We are delighted with the work and would happily have Rikky back to do further jobs in future. Highly recommended.

  • Damp on either side of chimney breast

    Very impressed by the team. They were knowledgeable,professional and hard working. I was made to feel very relaxed about asking about things I didn't understand. TBSS will always be my first contact in the future.

  • Help! Repair leak and relay slabs and concrete on drive

    Thank goodness for Rikky Tomlinson and his team at Total Building Solutions Southwest. I decided not to have the new concrete laid on the drive but the long term leak in the conservatory and uneven paving desperately needed doing. The guys arrived on time, started work immediately and worked hard all day, taking only two short breaks. The paving was relaid neatly and cleanly. Rikky discovered the reason for the leak in the conservatory and corrected (without any further cost to me) bad cowboy workmanship left by a previous tradesman. At the end of the day the guys cleaned up and left everything tidy. I totally agree with all the other excellent reviews that TBSS has received - so much so that I have booked Rikky to come back and do more work for me.
