Richard and his small team showed up on the button, beavered away with smiles on their faces, even when some things didn't go quite as planned. Nothing was unfixable and there was no screaming and washing of teeth (from me that is!). The work was completed pretty much on time and no extra costs incurred. The shower room looks great and works great! They were tidy builders, no huffing and puffing and never once demanded tea (although I was good and supplied) If you want a good bunch of people in your house to do a job you want done 'properly' with attention to detail then Richard's team is it:)

Amazing. The guys turned up on time, put sheets down and got on with it. They were very professional at all times and very hard working. They got the job done in half the time they quoted and it looks awesome! Thank you so much! Would not hesitate for a second to recommend them and if we need more work done, we'll definitely use them again!

Richard is a pro! His desire to do the job properly is admirable and reassuring. As we have an older house, the building work revealed a few surprises which effected the budget but Richard always worked with us to help us find the right answer - even coming to the house in our hours with a new baby on the way. He's dedicated. Snap him up! He's always busy.

Hi! This job was a nightmare for Rich. We were the classic 'changing our minds every 5 minutes' clients. Going from a bespoke handmade kitchen (which Rich was going to make himself with the woodworking skills from heaven) to making the living room and kitchen from two separate rooms into a modern and AWESOME open plan space which lets my wife ask for stuff from the fridge from the couch. Blam! So the job changed up a lot but Rich was always there to help. From hardcore structural stuff and Council approvals to fitting the 'off the shelf' kitchen we finally settled on. He was also super cool about juggling the budget around. Which means we still have things in the fridge that I can bring to my wife from our baddass kitchen. Oh yeah - and we did it through the winter which sucked but Rich was quick as possible so, again - kudos.

RM Builders gave my husband and I the best quote and in the most timely manner. The work started quickly and efficiently with a satisfying progress rate. Richard was always there to answer questions and ask our preferences for any choices we had along the way. The work only went a little over schedule but that was because of changes to the original plan. As a team they were very reliable and really good to work with. So good in fact we have hired them again to fit our new kitchen, knock through another wall and re roof our extension! Richard has been brilliant about keeping us informed and reassured throughout. Richard has been able to sort it all out with a great attitude. We highly recommend him!

Two separate damp repairs done in our office basement, Victorian building. Richard and Peter have been efficient and reliable from the start as well as easy to get on with. The quote was done quickly and then work was carried out the work to a very good standard. If there was a reason he couldn't attend he would inform us of this and the reason why. We were also impressed by his efforts to keep the office clean by using plastic floor coverings to protect the carpet and further sheets to enclose the area to stop dust travelling. Would definitely recommend him and use him for future works.

An excellent builder. I was impressed from the start with both friendliness and professionalism. Well organised, and also communicative and consultative. The work is of a high standard, properly finished, and during the process, issues that arose were identified and resolved with very little strain. I found the quotation reasonable, and was very pleased with the outcome. Richard and his colleague were also pleasant to have in and around the house. Richard took trouble to ensure the work was fully completed satisfactorily. Neighbours have admired the work. I am very happy to recommend RM Building.

They went above and beyond the call of duty in making sure I was happy. I would definitely use them again.

One of the main reasons we chose Richard was that he was someone that we felt we could communicate all our needs and that he also would discuss all the options. This was a fairly big project and we would be living upstairs during the 10 weeks of the work. Richard is immensely knowledgeable about many aspects of building work. If it had not been for his experience our house risked falling down when the structural engineer had advised only a horizontal steel for the knocking through of two of the rooms on both sides of the house. Richard realised when he looked at the foundations in the cellar that it needed a vertical steel, as well. He is a perfectionist and alongside his fantastic plasterer Peter they were able to level my very wonky Walls and laid an oak floor and fix the large skirting boards on very difficult floor levels. I really wished I had got him to install the new kitchen as he is all about the correct levels and angles. He always stops and tells you what is going , drawing diagrams to make sure you are clear. Considering that for a good few weeks we were swimming in dust and sharing one toilet with 4-6 men, the overall experience was very good . That was down to Richard and his wonderful crew. Always respectful, scrupulously honest and amazingly tidy. Richard has great integrity and 10 isn't a high enough rating. Oh and a good sense of humour. Important in any job.

He is efficient and totally reliable and has worked to an exacting standard. He has laid a fantastic limestone patio and has kept me updated as to the progress of the work all along the way! I will highly recommend him to everyone I know without hesitation.

We were extremely happy with Richard's work. The work was carried out very quickly and very professionally throughout. Richard also took the time to answer all the questions I had and, at my request, is also going to give us a quote for further work relating to the guttering. He and his company have given me back faith in tradespeople. It had previously been very difficult to find somebody we could rely on and trust. However, since we discovered Checkatrade, this is no longer the case. Many thanks once again, Richard and Checkatrade!

Took off all the old tiles and disposed of them. Made good the wall where the shower had been leaking and helped me decide on aspects of new bathroom fittings and liaised with plumber for me. Re-tiled to an extremely high standard (metro-style tiles), laid new lino floor. Placed dust-sheets everywhere they were needed and tidied and hoovered when the job was done. Highly recommended.
