SeddonKent Customer Testimonials

Mr & Mrs Sporle - Caversham, Berkshire

“Dear Michael. Just a short note to say a big thank you for all your hard work and professionalism whilst working on our extension. It's good to have guys on site when they say they will be there and on time. The quality of the work was excellent.”

Paula Tegg, Operations Manager - Accord Union, Reading

“I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you so much for the work you did for us to the rear of our offices. We were really worried that the underpinning would mean that we'd have to close our business for some time, which we just couldn't have afforded. Your quote was really reasonable and we were able to carry on with business as usual thanks to the professional and efficient way you organise your team.

All of your workers were a delight to have on site. They were always courteous and cheerful and kept disruption to a minimum. To be honest, we hardly knew they were there. It was so refreshing to arrive at the office and see them already hard at work. Not once did they arrive late; nor did they ever leave site early. This meant that the job was completed on time; in fact, slightly ahead of schedule. It was our experience of the underpinning project that made it easy to choose you to repair the faulty drains in the car park. The soakaway that you dug so quickly is working efficiently and we've had no more floods in the car park - fantastic - no more swimming to the front door! We really appreciate all you've done to keep our business operating at times when it looked like we'd need to move out. Thank you all so much.”

Glynis Gibbons, Headmistress - Gateway Private School, Buckinghamshire

“I first met Michael when he came to my place of work, a school in Buckinghamshire, to carry out building and maintenance work. Two years ago I accepted his quote to repair the chimney at my home and to carry out other general maintenance works. Michael has a team of associates upon whom he calls to provide the necessary professional skills for the work to be carried out. His quotes were reasonable and the work was done efficiently and within the time estimated. I found Michael and his team to be polite, professional and trustworthy. They obviously enjoyed working together and I would not hesitate to offer them further work.”

Maxine Lattimer, Owner - 50 Belmont Crescent, Maidenhead

“It is now the final week of our building project and Mike and his team are busy with the big clear up of the site and the finishing touches. It has been a difficult project for them because of unforseen problems with the fabric of the original house and disasters left behind by previous builders. Edwardian lath and plaster ceilings are very difficult to deal with, and there were a host of horrendous electrical and plumbing faults that emerged and had to be corrected. However, they soldiered on and we are now living in a much safer and more structurally sound building than we were before, as well as a much more spacious one. Mike pulled out all the stops to try and get the worst of the work completed while the family were away and they all worked exceptionally hard.”

“The family are now back in our newly completed extension and we are enjoying our new rooms. They are also newly decorated by SeddonKent who provide an excellent painting and decorating service to a high finish and at very reasonable rates. This building work will make a huge impact on our day to day lives and was definitely worth it. The past few months have been tough but I am really glad we went with SeddonKent because Mike has done a great job, he has tried to make the experience as pleasant as possible for us, and I am very happy with the end result.”

“I have no hesitation in highly recommending SeddonKent for any building work. From the outset they have been excellent. Firstly the quotes they provided were very prompt (at least half the time it took other builders I had approached), were in writing with a detailed breakdown, and also very competitive in price. They were happy to answer any questions and took a lot of trouble, visiting us and explaining exactly how they would do the work and what to expect at the different stages. They had a definite plan and obviously knew exactly what they were doing. I felt I could trust them to get the job done well even at this stage and I have not been disappointed.

I have five young children and the youngest was just two weeks old when the building work started. They approached the project in a very family friendly way and did their very best to keep disruption to a minimum which was just what I needed. Mike and his team worked extremely hard to get the main building work done so that roofs could be put in place as soon as possible to keep us warm and dry. They have continued to make great progress and we are still on schedule. Even when problems arose Mike always had a solution and has also made quite a few improvements to the original plans. When I have changed my mind about how I wanted things done he has always listened and tried his best incorporate them into the work.

All of the specialist workmen such as electricians, plumbers, roofers and plasterers that Mike has used on the building work have also been excellent. His building team are very hard working which is why they can achieve rapid and good quality results. Mike is also perpetually cheerful, which is an important quality in a builder, and it makes the inevitable disruption involved in any building project a lot more bearable!”
