Here's what our clients have to say about us.
Mr K. Fincham - Rear Extension And Alterations
"Reflecting on the last few months, I have to say what you guys have done for us is incredible. Finding a builder can be very stressful but you made the process straight forward from the start. You and your staff have been extremely helpful and professional throughout. You kept us on schedule and delivered us the perfect build. It was refreshing dealing with a proper company with office staff who can answer all our questions. You are a credit to the industry and the phrase ‘you get what you pay for’ has never been so true. Your business philosophy is in my opinion, a recipe for success. This is because you are hands on and client focused, which is a rare thing in the building industry. Adam became part of the family for 2 ½ months and was always there to listen to my comments and action my additional requests. My son even asked where he was after the last day of the build, I believe ‘Adam gone’ was the phrase. I have never met such a versatile builder before, he is a credit to ABL. Sarah has been fantastic from the start, she always provided answers quickly and no question was too much trouble. I received very positive comments from my neighbours and others regarding your work and your team’s conduct onsite. Everyone who came onsite during the build mentioned how tidy and organised you and your guys are. Thank you on behalf of the family for turning our house into a beautiful modern space. I wish you and your company every success in 2019. I would recommend you in a heartbeat."
Mr A. Scott - Single Story Extension And Various Alterations
"We would recommend Alan Bender Ltd. At our first meeting, Oliver Bender brought his building expertise to our architect’s plans, suggesting several ways to reduce costs while preserving the architect’s intent. During the tender process the Bender’s admin team did a great job in quickly answering our questions. Their tender indicated a 12 week timescale; much the same as quotes we had from other builders. Bender’s site supervisor is only working on your job; none of the “we are working somewhere else today”. The supervisor pulls in other trades as necessary. Simon, our site supervisor, worked to very high quality standards and showed skill in planning, coordination and customer service. The result was that their work finished 4 weeks early and we are very pleased with the result. We highly recommend Oliver Bender and his team."
Mrs J. Ferry - Internal & External Alterations
"I can whole-heartedly recommend Alan Bender Ltd, both for the quality of their work, which is impeccable and beautiful, but also for their friendliness, attention to detail, reliability and efficiency. Not only do they provide a schedule of which trades will be working on site and when; they also start work when they say they will and complete when they say they will. A major refurbishment is always stressful, but Alan Bender made everything run smoothly and easily. They really are a pleasure to work with."
Mrs M. Osborn - Internal & External Alterations
"Just wanted to say thank you to everyone at Alan Bender Ltd for carrying out my recent renovations. Really, really pleased - everything looks fantastic and your staff & contractors were all great, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you too for all the liaising you did to ensure that everything was as required. Alan Bender Ltd is certainly a company I would not hesitate to recommend."
Mrs M. Von Wrede - External Decorations
""We are absolutely chuffed with the works you have undertaken. It was well worth the research and wait to find the right company. From the moment you started, it has been non-stop and you have certainly delivered exactly what we were hoping to achieve. The project was completed well ahead of schedule and the result has added massive curb appeal to our house and the area. To your entire team, thank you very much for all your hard work, discipline and efficiency""
Mr Abbott - Single Storey Extension
"We just wanted to say how pleased we are with the house, and the work that Alan Bender did was fabulous from start to finish. Thanks again so much."
Mr & Mrs Malone - External Wall Extension
"We just wanted to write and express our sincere and heartfelt appreciation for the excellent work carried out by your team over the last couple of weeks. They always turned up when they said they would, they were polite and friendly yet unobtrusive, they were all extremely hardworking with a real attention to every small detail, they were very tidy (even to the extent of sweeping up small bits from the lawn) and the work they have carried out is absolutely brilliant – the wall looks amazing. Please thank them all very much on our behalf – they are a credit to your company. "
Mrs Hill - Commercial Renovations
"Firstly, I know I have already said it, but a huge thank you to you and the team for the amazing amount of work that was completed over Easter. Absolutely amazing and the feedback has been really positive today."
Mr & Mrs Baker - Extension
"Richard has just left after leaving everything completed to a very high standard and neat and tidy. He has been a first-class craftsman for this project so far as we are concerned, and so have all the other specialists who have been involved in the work. The bathroom has transformed the property! As you said, the finish on the tiling would be fine, and it certainly is. Thank you so much for your professional oversight and management of the project. We certainly have no hesitation in recommending your company should the occasion arise."
Mr Marfleet - New Build
"On behalf of Mersea Island Rugby Club, may we thank you for the professional manner in which you delivered the changing rooms. The contract was not only delivered four weeks early, but within budget and to a standard that is a credit to you, your site foreman Dave and your company. Running a construction company myself, I fully appreciate the complexities delivering a project that involves working for a committee on a building within a public open space. The works were fully segregated from the public at all times, ensuring safety as paramount importance. In doing this, the needs of the other sports clubs using the area were fully considered to minimise their disruption. All parties have been complimentary on the standard of finish and I would like to thank you and your staff for the ease at which you allowed me to project manage the project with your non-confrontational, cooperative approach. I wish you every success on future contracts."
Mr & Mrs Scott - Kitchen Extension
"We would like to thank you once again for everything you and your team did for us. The standard of work by all the tradesmen was extremely high. They worked hard, carefully and continuously. There was always a cheerful atmosphere on the site and it was a pleasure to have them around. The site was left clean and tidy each day. The whole project was on time despite some additional work, and importantly, it was also on budget."
Laurie Wood Architects - New Build
"My wife and I are very pleased with the new house. It is a difficult task for any builder to build a house for an architect and here Alan Bender Ltd excelled. His care and attention to detail was 'spot-on' and his workforce carried out the building to a very high standard. As architects we expect a high standard of workmanship and on this project we were not disappointed. We also had a very good working relationship with the builder throughout this contract and this always makes life more pleasant and more often than not, creates a better end-result."
