I would strongly recommend this company to anyone. We had our whole house repointed with lime mortar. The work was carried out to a high standard, and for a very reasonable price. Craig and his team were really professional, reliable, and considerate. Communication was great throughout, very responsive to requests as the work progressed. Outstanding.
Having had previous bad experiences with builders and tradesmen, we were very weary when looking for a company to repoint our Victorian cottage. We needn’t have worried, Craig and his team turned up on time, were professional, courteous and most of all, done a fantastic job. We’ve had many comments from passers by on how big an improvement it has made. Would without doubt highly recommend English Building & Restoration.
Absolutely excellent service. Genuinely surprised and impressed by Craig's knowledge, what he doesn't know isn't worth knowing! The service and end result were first class. Would recommend over and over again.
Extremely skilled and talented craftsman. Absolutely delighted with very high quality finish of our traditional lime mortar re-pointing. Would not hesitate to recommend.
I cannot speak highly enough of Craig and his team. Craig gave us invaluable advise and carried out the works on time and finished perfectly. On top of all of this, they are just such a nice team of people - nothing was ever too much trouble. In the end it was a shame see them go. If you have an old house - or any house for that matter - then this is the company that you need.
Craig English and his team are true professionals, whose professionalism extends beyond the exquisite quality of the work they carry out to the quality of their engagement with their customers and the reasonable prices they charge. When I employed them to repoint and restore the brickwork on a largish mid-Victorian house, I started with only a small area which required urgent attention as I was initially apprehensive that repointing would spoil the building's appearance. When I saw the result, the rest of the building looked so shabby by comparison that I had the whole building done. As one of my neighbours said afterwards, the building looks like new - in a good sense, due to expert use of original materials in the restoration. If you want top quality at a reasonable cost then this team is for you.
Craig has been a trusted partner, guiding us towards resolving some long-standing damp issues in our three hundred year old cottage for us for over a year now. His clear knowledge and friendly personality have certainly saved our wits!
