    Underpinning / Foundation

    Original quote was £29500. In total job has cost over £60,000 and workmanship is very poor. I accept there were some additional costs that were hard to factor in such as removal of soil and some extra small work but anything extra that could be charged was charged. Scott should have sub-contracted a brick layer to do all brick laying. Brick laying is very poor and I have had to employ a brick layer who is taking brick leaf down as joints are wrong and even some specials around bay window back to front. Scott and his team use my cement mixer which was only 6 weeks old but is battered and dented - it works but no care for other peoples stuff, punctured tyre on my new wheel barrow and also dented, damaged my new Hyundia petrol lawn mower by dumping on top of other stuff to make room in garage for his stuff - blade has been bent slightly so when it starts it stops almost immediately. Drainage was not completed - small open hole not bricked up and cemented in. Scott agreed I hold £1000 back to sort stuff out and really didn't have any more energy to deal with him and was glad for him to leave but in all honesty it's at least £6000 to redo all brickwork, connection around sewer drain and replace broken items. No care for other peoples property and me having to make trip after trip to builders merchant buying more and more stuff because he hasn't counted what is required. Have large number of building materials I've paid for not required but builders merchant have agreed to take back. No receipts or invoices for any extra payments I made. Just a very very bad experience that I wouldn't wish on anyone else. Now obviously I may receive some threats from this chap but I don't care as I'm telling the truth and don't give a f*** anymore.

    Internal Walls

    Came out to the house to give us a quote. Said we'd receive a quote later that day. Never heard from them again.

    Roof Repair

    They arrived and did the work as discussed in the quote. Happy with the work so far but it has yet to rain but confident the issue has been resolved

    Guttering and Rainwater Pipe

    Quick response and supplied a reasonable quote, completed the job in a good timeframe over the Xmas period, will use this company again.

    Fascias / Soffits / Cladding - Wooden

    Very efficient and good communication throughout works

    Garage Conversion

    We were really pleased with the work that Scott and his team completed for us. They made quick progress and finished ahead of schedule. Scott’s communication was excellent throughout and he delivered everything we discussed at the start of the project. Would be happy to use Preston’s again.

    Fencing & Gates - Wooden

    Excellent work.. very quick response and job done on the day job posted.. very satisfied with their work.. highly recommended for any job you need doing

    Garden Wall

    Very reliable and a quick neat and tidy workforce … Highly recommend .

    Concrete Base

    I cannot praise this company highly enough! Absolutely fantastic service from start to finish! They knew how desperate I was to have the garden done so that I could have a shed built so they worked over the Bank Holiday weekend just to do it! Really nice guys and I have now compiled a whole list of jobs for them to do! Would highly recommend! Really tidy workers, have left no mess and worked neatly throughout the day. They have transformed a building site into a beautiful garden. They even let my children help, which may have slowed them down but they took the time to please 2 very excited little boys! Do not go anywhere else for builders, choose these guys every time!

    Garage Conversion

    Scott and his team have been excellent and speedy workers, always being there when expected and left everywhere clean and tidy. They have been very helpful throughout and I would not hesitate to have them back if I have any other work in future and I would also be happy to recommend them .
