“Grant Builders Ltd undertook a large scale project on our 1920s house. From our first meeting with Leon, we felt we were in safe hands. The project involved demolishing an existing extension and in its place constructing a two-storey part of the house with a new kitchen, two bedrooms and bathroom. The aim was for this extension to look like part of the original house – and it does. This included re-creating many period details including bay windows and brickwork that matches something built 100 years ago. The project was completed on time and to budget – what more could you ask for? Leon’s own employees could not be faulted in terms of their punctuality, cleanliness and politeness and all the contractors were also commendable.”

“These guys are the best! The work is 100% perfect, the guys were considerate and polite, they tidied up at the end of every day. I now have my dream house thanks to Grant Builders. I would never use anyone else and so glad they were recommended to me.”

“From the moment we met Leon, we felt we had made the right choice. He visited us on numerous occasions to go over the details of the conversion and what extras we had planned. We would not hesitate to use Grant Builders again for any future building work.”

“Absolutely AMAZING. Just finished our 2 storey wrap around extension. Could not recommend more, we were very worried about choosing a builder but from the very beginning to way past the end Grant Builders have been fantastic. Cannot recommend enough.”

We contacted half a dozen local builders to quote for our build; a knock through from the kitchen to the dining room and adding a pitched roof extension across both those rooms to the back of the house. From the start we felt most comfortable with Leon, he helped with the design, planning a realistic schedule, and importantly stuck to the budget and schedule (only running over because we added so many “extras”). The team were great, friendly, tidy, and on hand to offer advice on the build. Great with the kids as well! Builds aren’t smooth sailing but Leon, Katherine and team handled the bumps well and dealt with all our weekend calls without compliant. Great to have such a passionate, creative and thoughtful team working on our home! Thank you so much, we will be back for more (if you will have us!). Thank you. Tony & Vicky

“We are delighted with our extension – garden room, downstairs cloakroom, car port and bedroom above. Leo, Katharine and Ryan were very considerate of our family, including the arrival of a baby mid build!! They listened to our queries and accommodated our requests as and when required. The team were friendly especially towards an inquisitive toddler! We would not hesitate to use them again.”

“Thank you so much for ‘transforming our home’. We are delighted with our kitchen extension + kitchen, bathroom and cloakroom refit. Leon and his team are amazing, their work and attention to detail are second to none. We were kept up to date with schedule, details and progress throughout the project and nothing was too much trouble. Leon guided and had suggestions which added to the overall finished effect and the final results far surpassed our expectations. Can’t recommend Grant Builders highly enough – definitely 5 stars!”
