Customer reviews for this trader
I have used Alison Building Co. before and thus had no hesitation in employing them again when I needed some work done. They were their usual efficient selves and completed the work to their usual high standard. Helpful, courteous and prompt. I shall be using them again.
We were very pleased with the work done. We had a significant amount of re-pointing work done on our old property including re-laying of several rows of bricks on a high chimney stack and re- setting of the chimney pots. We felt that Vic Fell gave us sound advice at the quoting stage and the work was carried out efficiently and to a very good standard. The workmen were considerate and hard working.
Alison Builders did a great job. Although the job itself was quite small the access to the work was difficult. Alison sorted everything out so that the work could be done in a day. I would certainly use them again for future building work.
Very pleased with this work. Quick response and excellent job. We have used Alison builders before and have confidence in their service. Would certainly use them again.
Vic said he'd do the job right and he did. Turned up when he said and made sure everything was done to our satisfaction. Fair price for the job too.
We were extremely happy with the work done by Vic's boys. From start to finish we received excellent service. The operatives arrived on time, every morning and were very polite and accommodating. We were kept updated on the progress of the work throughout the 3 weeks the job took. We would fully recommend this trader to anyone and we have even asked them for a quote for our next project.
Very swift response to enquiry. Work done to a very good standard and very pleased with result. Would definitely recommend.
We have been using this company for years for all our maintenance solutions, because of the quality of work and reliability.
Trustworthy, reliable, reasonably priced and a nice job done. Will definitely use again. Extremely satisfied 10/10.
Vic and his team have done excellent work for us for a number of years, he is our go to builder and the work is always very good.
Alison Builders were true to their word. They gave a fair quote. Explained how they would do the work. Then did the work on time with a smile on their faces. We were well pleased with the result. Thank you.
Alison builders have done a great job we are very pleased with the result and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to others. Thanks to Vic, Matt, Jim and Dave.
Can't recommend them highly enough. They did a major kitchen renovation for us, which was very difficult for them due to Lockdown. The work was carried out to a very high standard, the team were all hard working and conscientious. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them, and will definitely be using them again.
As we were unable to obtain a personal recommendation for the specialist jobs we required for our period property we were grateful for the excellent reviews for Alison Builders on this site. Our initial contact was owner Vic who visited us promptly and on two occasions to discuss our needs and offer advice and suggestions. Having seen Eddie and Jim positively mentioned in several reviews we were delighted when they came to introduce themselves and offer further ideas prior to starting our work. This consisted of roofing, soffits, fascias, guttering pointing and reconfiguration of pipework and took over two weeks. Each day they arrived on time, were always cheerful and delivered a very high standard of work in all weather conditions. No challenge was too great for this excellent team who have great problem solving skills. We were updated re progress and shown photos of inaccessible areas to us. The site was left tidy each night and fully cleared on completion of the job. During and since the works we have received many compliments. Value for money reflecting high quality workmanship by experienced tradesmen. Highly recommended.
Vic and all the boys made a lovely job of our roof, front walling and stonework. Rate them highly. Thanks guys.
We have used Vic and his lads for a few years now and are more than satisfied with their workmanship and standards. They are punctual, thorough, organised and tidy. We would recommend Alison Builders without reservation.
We were very impressed by Alison Builders. We used them for some roof work. Vic's understanding of the work gave us confidence; he gave us realistic options and was always available to answer questions. Jim and Eddie worked tirelessly and cheerfully high on a roof ridge in really horrible weather conditions. Every time they went up on the roof, they took photos to show us what they were doing. They were professional and extremely competent. Their repair of our stone chimney stack was done to a high standard and I am sure it is now good for another 100 years or so! The price charged was reasonable. I have no hesitation in recommending Alison Builders.
I was very happy with the work done by Alison Builders, the work was completed quickly and care was taken to leave my property clean and tidy afterwards. In addition to this Vic was very helpful in dealing with the building control inspection of the work once it was completed which I appreciated as I had no personal experience of dealing with these issues. I would be very happy to use this company again in the future and recommend them to anyone looking for a professional and trustworthy builder.
Alison Builders undertook several projects on our property, an old stone cottage. On reporting an internal leak to Vic Fell, who was very understanding and helpful, he sent members of his team to sort the problem out which they did really quickly and effectively. Since then the team have installed new fascia and guttering plus carrying out much needed pointing on the property. The finished result is more than I could have hoped for and has made a real difference to the look of the cottage. My thanks go to all of the team involved and particularly Eddie and Jim who carried out most of the work. All of the team are very professional and friendly, taking great pride in their work, paying attention to every detail. Once the work was complete everything was put back in place and left spick and span. I'd use them again without hesitation and if I could evaluate their quality of work it would be with a Gold/5star rating.
Alison Builders installed my wet room downstairs. Vic Fell surveyed the available space, listened to my ideas and came up with practical solutions to meet my requirements. The work was carried out efficiently and completed on time, with great attention to detail, creating a room with the "wow factor". Nothing was too much trouble and I would highly recommend this company and it's employees. I would certainly use their services for any future building work.
Alison Builders have undertaken several jobs for me previously and I didn't hesitate to contact them when I wanted a new kitchen. As always, the workmen attend when they say they are going to and do the tasks that they are asked to do. The workmen are kind and always tidy up after themselves. Vic is the contact and co-ordinates the workforce. He is always contactable and willing to help and advise. I would highly recommend this trader should you wish any work to be undertaken to a high quality.
We had a wall removed, a skylight, french doors and a new kitchen. Work took 6 weeks and once Eddie and Jim were here they came every week day, on time too! They were tidy, trustworthy and most of all cheerful especially on days when it got hard with no sink, facilities etc. Vic was contactable and approachable throughout and we highly recommend them and thank them for the excellent work. I really love the new kitchen and the light and space created is just what we wanted.
The employees arrived on the day & time as promised. They were very polite & friendly. Both worked very hard & well together. The workmanship was excellent & we would certainly ask them back for any future work.
Work efficiently carried out, all cleaned up properly afterwards.
Work done as agreed on time at agreed price - cleaned up after job finished. Would recommend.
On the unfortunate occasion of having to make an insurance claim following a leak in our kitchen, we needed a builder quickly. Unimpressed by builders recommended by our insurers we turned to Trusted Trader. Impressed by the Alison Builders Story we contacted with them and Vic Fell attended our property to inspect the extent of the damage and give a quotation. Alison Builders were able to provide services for the entire project which was key for us. Everyone from Alison Builders wear garments displaying the company name and their personal name. Before works commenced, adhesive plastic carpet/floor protector was laid in our conservatory/utility room. Jim and Eddie worked together with expertise and knowledge, their attention to detail is incredible. Their skills were tested on a few occasions but, they quickly overcame the issues. We didn't think this level of service existed anymore, our completed kitchen exceeded all our expectations. Staff are punctual, trustworthy, pleasant and hard working. Alison Builders statement on Trusted Trader is something they truly mean and stand by. When work was completed, and they left it was somewhat bittersweet. We would have no hesitation in recommending this company to others looking for a dependable professional building company.
We were very pleased with Alison Builders. The workmen turned up when they said they would, did a great job, were pleasant & cleaned up afterwards.
