Worked tirelessly to complete the work, finished it to an excellent standard, there were a few misinterpreted bits along the way but just as much our fault for not explaining. Very refreshing to have such hard-working and honest tradesmen, very rare these days!

CDS builders have done a fantastic job with our home. From first coming in to quote to throughout the job Darren, Callum, and Jayse’s work has been exemplary. I have been kept informed throughout. I requested a lot of changes and nothing was a problem. Any additional expense was discussed and agreed upon prior to the work been carried out. Everyone who comes in says “wow what a difference the house looks amazing”. I couldn’t be happier the conversion is exactly as I envisaged if not better. Attention to detail and finish is to the highest standard. I thoroughly recommend CDS.

Extremely pleased with the service Callum and his team provided. Being 5 hours drive away from the renovation meant that I couldnÔÇÖt check in personally to see the works progress but was kept updated with photos and emails throughout. Will definitely be using CDS again in the future and highly recommend them to anyone for any type of home improvement work!

CUSTOMER IN MIDDLETON ST GEORGE

I cannot recommend CDS Builders highly enough. We were originally supposed to have an orangery built by another company which they totally messed up and luckily Darren and Callum were on-site knocking down an internal wall for the orangery. They helped us to sort out the mess from the other company and then agreed to take on the extra work of planning and building a new extension. They worked tirelessly throughout lockdown to source materials and have built an extension we are thrilled with. They are tidy, efficient and their attention to detail is fantastic. CouldnÔÇÖt have had better builders. Thank you!

Darren, Callum and Jason came and fitted new ceilings in four large rooms. Callum then plastered the ceilings and went on to do the walls in three additional rooms. They worked hard and diligently, keeping me informed as they progressed and everything was completed to an exceedingly high standard. This is the second time I’ve used their services and I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again. They’re always polite, friendly, full of good humour and open to any suggestions and concerns you may have, and happy to share their knowledge. I’d recommend them in a heartbeat.

CUSTOMER IN LONDON

CDS Builders are very professional and provide sound advice (ie they don’t just suggest works need to be carried out unless it is required). Their workmanship and finish is of a high standard and they never leave a mess. Darren kept me up to date at all times during the works and also provided photos from start to finish so I knew exactly what was going on. I will definitely recommend CDS Builders and will be using them for my other properties as well.

Damp proofing a property, roof repairs, kitchen roof repairs, tanking, floor joist replacement, electrical wiring of a humidistat, decorating, plastering, and fitting new kitchen units.

Darren and Callum did great work. Everything was itemized and cost in advance. The project started off small, but we found so many issues it took a lot longer than anticipated. Darren and Callum stuck with it until the problems were resolved. I had been through a few builders before I found CDS Builders who were very reliable, unlike the others. High-quality workmanship. Friendly demeanor. Great to work with.

Outside toilet and coal bunker buildings rebuilt as downstairs shower-room for an elderly relative. Plus utility room re-built and refitted, adjoining kitchen refitted.

CDS Builders and Joiners provided a full breakdown of costs from architects’ spec and were not put off by Edwardian houses with Edwardian plumbing. Building work needed and received planning permission. CDS Builders and Joiners did a very good job. No problems with the building work. Darren, Callum, and Jase were a pleasure to work with. It was a team effort to get everything we wanted as clients.

Worked tirelessly to complete the work, and finished it to an excellent standard, there were a few misinterpreted bits along the way but just as much our fault for not explaining. Very refreshing to have such hard-working and honest tradesmen, very rare these days! Apologies for the late feedback
