Praise from happy customers

We like to think we’re modest. So we’ll leave it to our customers to tell you why they love what we do. 

Lianne Simm loves her new extension complete with “gorgeous” kitchen, which is the envy of her friends and family. Phillipa and Ian were “over the moon” with our work, while Tim and Eve thanked us for creating “the home we dreamt of for our family”. Thank you guys. Feedback like this makes it worth all the hard work.

Lianne and Mark Simm, Bramhall

The Simms were inspired to have their extension done when they saw our craftsmanship on next door’s house. We got the job done in 12 weeks flat. Delighted Lianne told us this in January 2016:

“We have a gorgeous kitchen now. We spend most of our time in there… its changed our entire house. We’re really proud of it. The family have all been to see it and they loved it. It was great to be able to have everyone there because we have room for them all now.

We’re really pleased with how it went. Trafford Builders were great to work with – they always answered our calls or got back to us quickly. They were at the house when they said they would be – no disappearing acts! It seemed that nothing was too much trouble and they made suggestions too on how we could make things better. If they came across a problem, they already had a solution thought out before they came to us with it.

The people who worked for them were lovely as well. It can be really intrusive having people around the house all of the time but we always felt at ease.Even getting up after a night shift and wearing pyjamas I never felt uncomfortable! We’re really, really happy. We give them 6 out of 5 stars.”

Phillipa & Ian Reece, Burnage

“After considering having the biggest building project on our home for about five years and meeting numerous companies,  we decided to employ Trafford Builders.
“Our decision was based on their can-do approach and valuing what it was that we wanted and problem solving our requests to make them a reality.
“All work was completed to the highest standards,  and within the time scales set out and agreed. And we are over the moon with what our home has been turned into.
“All staff that worked on our home were always really polite and respectful to us  and to our home and needs.
“Right throughout the process,  we were informed of progress in as much or as little detail as was needed and communication was efficient and conveyed in a way that we would understand.
“Most of all,  we invited these people into our home and into our lives and our home and space was respected as if it was their own.  I was never left feeling uneasy,  unsatisfied or unhappy with their work,  them as people or the product they provided us with.
“Thank you for creating a beautiful and usable space within our home.”

Tim and Eve Kimber

“Trafford Builders are extremely knowledgeable, friendly, considerate and professional in their work and we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.

Fully consulted before work started

“Our experience began with a number of consultations at times convenient for us. During the consultations we established the full scope of the job together. We wanted two rooms to be converted into one. To us this was ‘simply’ a case of removing a wall. However we were keen for the finished product to look like one room, rather than two rooms knocked together.

“Without Trafford Builders we may not have achieved our aim because during the consultations they identified a number of areas for consideration that we had not previously thought of, such as the consolidation of light switches and the consistency of features like skirting boards and picture rails. Had these not been considered at this stage we would not have achieved our goal. Thanks to Ben and Ken we  did get what we wanted!

“Trafford Builders provided us with a fully itemised quote rather than an estimate. It was professionally presented with their terms and conditions for work and payment, accompanied with copies of their insurance certificates. So we were able to see exactly where our money was going. This allowed us to budget with confidence that there would be no hidden extras at the end of the work, which has been our experience in the past.

Workmen inspire trust

“Trafford Builders showed themselves to be reliable and trustworthy. They wear a uniform whilst on site as do any labourers they employ – a nice touch when there are strangers in the house, particularly if you have children, as we do.

“There were a number of occasions where we required some additional work or a change to what was originally agreed and quoted for. At these times Trafford Builders demonstrated patience and adaptability and we discussed the cost implications which on each instance was made easy because of the open and transparent manner in which they quote for their services.

“They came back to our home in the evenings a number of times to discuss their work and ensure that we were happy with the way the job was progressing. At all times they were able to answer any questions we had and we were happy throughout the job.

Cleaning and snagging built into the project plan

“We were extremely impressed that not only did Trafford Builders complete the job on time and within the budget they also built in time for cleaning and snagging, which meant that by the time the job was completed we were completely satisfied with the end product.

“It has to be said that having this kind of work completed on your house is not easy and there is inevitably a good deal of upheaval. However I can certainly say that Trafford Builders made this much more bearable because of their friendly personalities, their enthusiasm and the confidence they instilled in us that at the end of the process they would have transformed our house into the home we dreamt of for our family.

“We will certainly be using your services again! Thanks Ben and Ken from all of us.”
