Avonvale Developments Building and Maintenance Ltd

  • Garden retaining wall.

    Rob turned up on time and got straight on with the job without taking a break. He is socially pleasing and always willing to answer any questions you might have. Robs over all performance and job ability was certainly one of the best jobs I have encountered from Trades in a long time.

  • Wall removal

    A rare find! What luck finding Rob on this website to remove our wall and make good. My husband was drawn to him because he was the only builder who took his time to measure up and check everything before his quote. He is an absolute perfectionist and his attention to detail is fantastic. He was great at project managing and was able to take me step by step what he needed to do to get the work done, each day I knew what was happening. Day 1. Steel prep work and measuring up. Day 2. Props went in and wall removal began. Day 3. Wall is gone and electrical work sorted. Day 4. “Packing in” is done. Day 5. Wall is filled in ready for plaster board. He also removes an old porch door frame and makes good. So neat no plastering needed. Day 6. Plaster boards are in and walls ready for plastering, props come down and packing finished. Day 7. Floor is levelled to living room. Day 8/9. Plastering is done including my kitchen ceilings. Day 10 skirting is added and flooring laid. Great builder, great service, very lovely assistant builder ;) will be calling him back to do some other work.

  • Patio

    I have known Rob for many years and I would highly recommend him for his professionalism, attention to detail, trustworthy and value for money. He has just finished a patio for me and the finish is beautiful and he was clean and tidy throughout. You would definitely keep his number for future business.

  • 2 side extention

    finding a builder for us was a very daunting situation. It is our first home and we had had no need for trades men previously and had no one to ask for a reliable opinion so we took to my builder and found Robert and his team at Avonvale. Robert came out to the house and gave a very competitive quote for our two-storey side extension, porch and patio doors. when we received the quote was broken down into stages this meant that we could understand what we were paying for on each part of the build and tailor it to just the bits we needed and keep us on track for our very strict budget.Robert,Ian and Dan were a pleasure to have in our home they were courteous, polite, and professional they were here at 8.20am and worked until 3.30/4pm each day even if the weather was not in our favor. The work was completed to a high standard they are all very proud of the work that they do and are only happy to put their name to something if it is just so.The project was completed very close to schedule.Robert is very keen on completing a job exactly how the customer wishes and is very keen on communicating about each stage of the build.He was very flexible when we changed our mind even at the last minuet. He was very upfront with any changes in cost and would always wait for approval before going ahead with anything.We would defiantly recommend Robert and the team to friend’s, family and anyone reading this. we already have plans for Robert to come back to help with our next project.

    I'm completely happy with how this job went. Completed on time and to price. I would recommend their services and wouldn't hesitate employing them again.

  • Extension of existing kitchen

    Rob and the boys did a fantastic job with our extension. We had an existing galley kitchen, and we wanted a porch/extension at the end to complete it. Rob was very flexible with changes and explained everything in simple terms to a building novice. It took around two weeks with some less than ideal weather conditions, yet this didn't massively affect progress. I also had some other work going on with the house, some of which impacted Rob, however nothing was too much of an issue. Very trustworthy, punctual, polite and does a fantastic job - couldn't ask for more really. I'll be using you again, Rob, thank you very much.

    What can I say other than a huge thank you to Luke for the excellent job he has done on decorating nearly the whole of my house! Lounge, hall, stairs & landing, bathroom, 2 spare bedrooms, my bedroom and en-suite. Luke is certainly a perfectionist which can been seen in the standard of the work. He was accommodating, totally professional and reliable. He was also extremely patient with me! I cannot praise him enough and have already recommended him and Avonvale to others. Brilliant job, can't stop wondering around looking at my beautifully transformed home!

  • Kitchen and hall painting

    We were delighted with the work carried out by Luke. He did a fantastic job at painting our kitchen, stairs and landing. He was always punctual, polite and professional. He paid meticulous attention to detail and did a very neat job. He worked in a tidy environment and always cleared up at the end of the day. He did a lovely job also of tiling behind our cooker which was not easy given the curve of the wall and the 450 year old chimney breast! We felt happy to trust his knowledge and experience to guide us about which tiling and paint products would work best for us. It was a pleasure to have Luke working for us and we would not hesitate to use Avonvale Developments again for any future decorating work. Thank you.

  • Internal Woodwork

    Rob responded very quickly to our request for a painter and decorator, and sent Luke round very quickly too. Luke is a great painter and decorator, we're very happy with the work he's done.

  • Decorating of hall and landing

    Luke has done an excellent job on the hall and landing and I am impressed with the high standard of his work. He is courteous and hardworking and I have been impressed with the way he cleans up at the end of the day. I was more than confident to leave him to get on with things while I went on holiday. He has offered to come back to revarnish the front door which due to bad weather did not meet his standards. I will be happy to recommend him to friends and to use him again in the future.

The job completed on time and to a high standard. The quote was not the cheapest we received, but we were confident the job would be completed to our specifications. This confidence was not misplaced and we were exceptionally please with the results of works completed. We would not hesitate in using Avondale and Rob & Luke again.

    Our painter Luke has done an excellent job. Luke is a very pleasant and competent worker nothing was to much effort any thing he was asked to do was done instantly and with goodwill.

We are extremely happy with the work done and the way it was carried out , so much so we have discussed further works to be carried out in the autumn. Mr and Mrs White. Bath.

  • Painting of Hallway and Landing

    Very impressed with the standard of glosswork completed in the hallway and landing, very efficient and very neat. Luke and Rob were both friendly and professional and Luke did a great job. Thank you and would highly recommend.

  • Painting of 2 hallways, stairs plus some exterior work

    I was very happy with the work done by Luke on behalf of Avondale Developments. He undertook interior and exterior painting and was on time, worked hard, cleaned up after himself and did a really good job of the painting. Based on the work here, I would thoroughly recommend them.

  • Rebuild a portion of boundary wall using concrete block

    Rob and his team came and rebuilt a portion of our boundary wall. The work completed was of a very high standard and we are very impressed. His price for the job was very fair and reasonable.

    There is also the added bonus that Rob is a genuinely nice bloke!!

    I hired Luke for redecoration of hall/stairs and landing.

    Luke made a lovely job of re-painting our window frames and doors, including making minor and not-so-minor repairs to the windows as needed.
    The quote was competitive and detailed, and was exactly what we were charged at the end. I have no hesitation in recommending Luke and Avondale.

  • Trowbridge 2bed terrace needing extensive redecoration

    Experts and really nice people too!

    Excellent work by Rob's team, I can't speak highly enough of them. It was a long and complicated job but Luke far exceeded expectations both in how the job was run and also the quality of the finish.
    Very good value for money and a pleasure to deal with. I wouldn't hesitate to use Avondale again myself or to recommend them to a friend. They are actually now moving on to do work at my parents home.

    Many thanks.

  • Painting hallway

    Luke has done a grand job freshening up our hallway. He was punctual and efficient every day and we felt comfortable leaving him with a spare key to lock up when he was finished for the day.

    We received a few quotes for the job and Avonvale provided the most competitive price. After reading so many positive and relevant reviews here, we were confident that Luke would be more than capable.

    I have already recommended him to family and would not hesitate to use his services again.

  • painting

    I can thoroughly recommend Luke.

  • Paint Soffits

    We received a very reasonable quote from Rob, owner of Avonvale Developments Building and Maintenance Ltd. The painter, Luke, turned up on the day at the said time. Both Rob and Luke are Polite, friendly and efficient. They also painted our neighbour's soffits (joint arrangement) and they were also very pleased with the work. Excellent job done on both properties and all completed within a few days. We would definitely use this company again and have no hesitation in recommending them.

  • Painting hallway, stairs and landing

    Outstanding. Luke at Avondale Developments is the most wonderful painter. The company have been fantastic; professional, friendly, cost-efficient and reliable. Luke was a pleasure to have in the house and incredibly hard working, quick and good at decorating. He is a perfectionist which shows in the finish. Nothing was too much trouble for Luke and he made our home look brilliant. In our opinion there is no better tradesman or company if you are looking for a painter or decorator. We are very grateful to Luke and thrilled by the fantastic job Avondale Developments did.

  • Extension and alterations

    Avonvale were a really professional team
    Rob shone out as a natural leader and consummate craftsman but all the team were really nice, polite and good humoured
    During the build as things evolved I changed my mind on several items but this never fazed the guys they never threw out there dummies instead they listen carefully to my requirements and came up with solutions not problems
    A truly professional company whom I would recommend to anyone and my wife made the comment that Rob brought the build in on time, on quoted price and most impressively the team turned up every day for a full days work from outset to completion
    Rob is extremely proud of his craft he cut cornerstones out of the original building to set them in the corner of the extension balancing the whole vista of bungalow and extension as one
    Bath stone block work - a real artwork, plasterwork - after a coat of paint looked a million dollars, electrics - spot on, roofing - a difficult graft into the existing roof but what a great job
    All round a very great thank you Avonvale, so happy with your work

  • front of house re painting

    Ended up re pointing one of the walls on my house instead. They done a very good job and I am very happy.

  • To paint the outside of a house

    Happy with the finished job - although it did take some time to happen owing to the approach of winter soon after the job was agreed. I hadn't realised cold weather would make it impossible to paint the outside of a house and my one complaint perhaps would be that this could have been explained at the outset. However the work was eventually completed and the quote agreed was stuck to so I am happy to recommend.

  • Plastering, painting and some tiling hallway & landing

    Luke has done an excellent job of stripping and painting our front door and redecorating our hallway, which was no small job given the condition the walls were in previously. Rob managed to fit the work in in the timescale we were hoping for. The attention to detail has been great, lots of filling and patching, and the result has exceeded our expectations. We would certainly contact Rob and Luke again, and will happily recommend them. Thanks again.

  • Replace concrete parking area, patio and garage doors

  • terrace house in Frome

  • Extension to Rear in Holt Trowbridge

    Very pleased with Rob and his team. High standard of work and completed on time within our tight deadline. Always accommodating and flexible with our requirements and were happy to adjust bits and bobs as required throughout the job.
    Good communication throughout so there were no surprises. Would highly recommend to anyone and would definitely use again.

  • General renovation to 1800's house

    Really fantastic! Cannot rate highly enough. Did exactly what he quoted plus more, went over and above what I expected and couldn't rate him high enough for anyone who wants a job doing professionally, quickly and for a reasonable price. Would definitely use his services again.

  • Pointing and painting

    Professional and helpful, offer great advice, always on time, very pleased with quality of workmanship.

  • House re-pointing (front)

    Rob quoted for this job best part of 8 months ago at the time Rob did say that he would not be able to start for 3-4 months which was fine be me as this would mean that it would be done in the summer allowing for everything to dry out and let me then coat the building with weather shield before the bad weather. Rob contacted me a couple of times to let me know that he hadn't forgotten me and that he would be in contact soon to start the job. Due to other work commitments Rob was later than I had hoped at starting the job which means now that I will not get to do the additional work that I have to do until the spring next year.
    Once the job was started Rob arrived as arranged and got straight to work, doing pointing is by its nature a very messy job but at the end of each day the whole place was left clean and tidy, the work was completed on time and to a good standard.

    Overall very pleased with the job.

  • Home to decorate

    Excellent professional job by a friendly team
    Very happy to recommend

    Thanks Rob.

    Best regards

    Rob has completed our kitchen extension to our total satisfaction. The quality of his work and his sub-contractors has been of the highest standard, despite having to work in freezing northerly winds. He identified several problems with the drawings at an early stage, which were resolved promptly with his expert advice. His fixed price approach was a definite plus point when we were making our decision on contractor, and being able to start, and finish, to our required timescale was a great benefit to us.
    We are happy to recommend Avonvale Developments to anyone seeking a high quality build.

  • Repair of exterior house stone work & re-pointing

  • Paint the internals of a three bed house

    Rob came around straight away to quote and once the price was agreed, Luke started the following week. Luke did a really good job on the painting and completed in no time, and the work was excellent.

    I would fully recommend Rob and Luke for further work

  • lay summerhouse foundations

    Rob was quick to respond within viewing the job, estimating and delivering the finished product and all within a 10 day period from start to finish (extremely swift). Very good standard of workmanship with everything left clean and tidy - Top job would highly recommend Rob to friends and family.

  • Painting and decorating in Calne

    Rob quoted for a substantial internal decorating job. For three weeks Luke turned up early and reliably and got on with the job - as others have commented he is a nice, polite young man who does a good job and I would not hesitate to recommend him for this kind of work. It's important when someone is in your home for that long that you can feel comfortable being around them and it was very easy to get along with Luke. Communications were good, and Rob came to inspect the work a couple of times to check it was all on track and up to scratch . We are very pleased with the results and will be in touch again. Thanks!

  • Garage conversion

    We're really pleased with the work Rob and his team have done. The work was carried out on budget with the minimum of disruption and completed to a high standard. In particular they have been friendly, helpful and especially understanding of our very inquistive young son! Would definately recommend Rob and the team to others.

  • plasterer

    Rob and his team has done a great job... They always make sure they clean and tidy up after themselves... Rob always offers a competitive rate...Would highly recommend...

  • Lay Concrete Floors - Plaster Ceilings - Wall Removal

    Rob and his team (Ian, Luke and Lee) met and exceeded my expectations in every possible way.

    They worked very hard and always kept the site clean and tidy. Of all the trades working on my renovation (electrician, plumber, heating engineer, etc), Rob's team were definately the most professional in terms of work rate, communication and general site admin. They were on site every day (from early in the morning) and didn't leave until a full days work had been completed. If only I could say the same of the other trades!

    If I needed to speak with Rob he was always available by phone. If I need clarification on any points he would always offer to meet me on site to discuss the detail, exactly what you need when trying to pull various jobs together.

    Couple all of the above with Rob's competitive quote and you have a winning combination. If friends and family require any work in the future I would not hesitate to recommend Rob.

    If you're looking to get your job completed with the minimum amount of stress possible I would advise contacting Rob for a chat/quote before looking elsewhere.

  • Off Street Parking

    Really very pleased with work done. Efficient and very friendly workers. Would recommend to anyone requiring building works. I will definitely call when I need any future jobs.

    Thanks again.

  • Single Storey Extension

    After getting 4 different builders to quote for our extension we chose Rob due to his competitive quote which was itemised and backed up with a copy of his liability insurance and certificate from the FMB, which for us was important when having any work done on our house.

    Rob and his Team were onsite at 8am every day and even when we have 3 inches of snow they carried on digging the footings. The whole project ran to Rob’s schedule which was given to us on the first day and he always kept us up to date with all work being done along with the payment schedule and answered all the questions we had, even when we hit problems (not due to Rob) but due to the architect, Rob did everything he could to help resolve the problems which we did. Rob also took care of all building inspections from the council and explained anything that we did not understand.

    Rob and his Team were very organised and kept the site as tidy as possible, the standard of work done by Rob on the bricklaying was fantastic and matched the existing brickwork perfectly, We had Phil onsite from building the roof to laying the floor and again all of Phil’s work was fantastic and met all of our expectations. To finish the extension we had Luke decorate and he also did a fantastic job. Now the extension is finished we wonder how we survived without the extra space!

    Everyone who sees the extension cannot not stop commenting on the high standard of finish and how good it looks.

    Choosing a good reliable builder is always difficult to find and I am so glad we chose Rob and would recommend him and his Team to anyone looking to have building work, garden work and decorating.
    Thanks again Rob for the excellent job you and your team did and I will be sure to call you if we need any other work done. Nick, Yvonne & Emily

  • Knock down part of internal wall to make kitchen/diner

    Rob and his team were fantastic! They have done a brilliant job and with minimal disruption to the household. They overcame the initial problem, down to me, and reassured me every step of the way. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone and indeed, already have. It is very refreshing to meet people who know what they are doing, do it professionally and don't charge ridiculous prices. I cannot praise them enough!! I shall definitely use Rob and his team for any other work I may need in the house as he's proved himself trustworthy, honest and reliable, three qualities seriously lacking with a lot of trades people these days!

    Feedback for Rob Rackley (Westbury1) - 20th Sep 09.

An accredited member of the FMB he is a professional and polite person to meet. I would thoroughly recommend Rob and his team. Very neat work and punctual everyday. Quick to respond when communicating with and overall I will be using his expertise for future work.
    Thank you Rob.

  • Rebuild chimney

    Rob was excellent; the job was very reasonably priced, he got on and did it when he said he would (he actually offered to come earlier than agreed, which has really helped my project timescales) and cleared up! I actually needed more things done, which Rob was happy to take on. All in all, very pleased and I will definitely go back to Rob should I require his services in the future.

  • fireplace stone base hearth replacement

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Robert built a first floor extension for us. It was a very professional job, they finished pretty much on schedule and they were very accommodating for a family of young children and one baby on the way. The finished product is absolutely superb. I would definitely recommend him.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    The work undertaken was a large 2 storey building extension, which included; a master bedroom, shower-room and bathroom en-suites, fitting of a new extended kitchen and a downstairs WC, an integral garage and a new drive and drop down kerb. Rob also added a front porch and at the rear a large walled patio area. All in all, quite a lot of work, which required the full range of trade skills. Rob provided us with a work breakdown schedule spreadsheet, with logical phased payments and was prompt in dealing with all queries. All members of the team (Rob, Phil, Luke and Mark) were a pleasure to deal with, they were polite, enthusiastic, always put in a full days’ work and ensured a professional and quality finished product in all the varying tasks undertaken. Rob and all members of his team are very proud of their work results and Rob ensures that all contractors he employs also work to his exacting standards. Rob was straightforward and easy to get along with, was completely trustworthy and honorable in all our dealings with him. When problems arose, Rob took the lead to offer practical solutions and dealt directly with the authorities, to successfully resolve the issue. He also dealt with the inspections and all other requirements expected of building control. Thanks for a job well done Rob. We will definitely use you again for any future building work we require, and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to others.
