We asked Richard's carpentry team to fit a huge amount of furniture into a very small amount of space. They created a wardrobe, fitted shelves and inventive cupboards into every available space of our two attic rooms and one further bedroom. They also fitted three solid oak desks and a sink unit, beautifully routed and finished. I was very impressed with the craftsmanship and would certainly use them again should we need skilled carpenters in the future.

The loft conversion we are now enjoying, built by Richard and his wonderful team, has changed our house completely. From the initial meeting Richard adopted a 'can do' attitude and allowed our plans to become a reality with no detail spared. Between them, the Shaw team managed to find solutions to any problems we had along the way, resulting in a better build than was originally planned. I would recommend drawing up the plans directly with Richard before build. We went for an external architect who became the source of problems we could have avoided if we had used the Shaw and Son Builders from the start.

After having the loft converted by Shaw and Sons we were so impressed by the work carried out we asked them to rework two tiny box rooms into one double bedroom. Although there were difficulties with differing ceiling heights and the removal of a supporting wall they managed to overcome the obstacles to create a wonderful room. Would thoroughly recommend this company.

If you want really decent builders who do an excellent job and care about their work and the reputation they leave behind, use these guys. Very happy.

The high standards and flexibility demonstrated during Phase 1 (loft conversion) were again in evidence. Scheduling of work was vitally important given that the house remained occupied throughout the project. Reporting of progress was constant and revisions to the plans were agreed so that work could proceed without unexpected disruption. The quality of the work meant that we extended the project, to include new wooden floors, replacement kitchen and bathroom. And new porch. Combined with Phase 1, the house has been extended and all rooms remodelled/refurbished to a high standard.

The whole process was so much easier than we had expected solely because of the professional team within Shaw and Son Builders. The extension was finished to a very high standard, on time and within budget. Richard Shaw and his son Lewis worked closely with us throughout, always taking a positive, approach and pro active in offering expert advice. The pride they take in their work is refreshing, and our extension was delivered beyond our expectations! We would recommend them without reservation.

Shaw and Sons provided a complete service from architectural drawings through to final decorating. The work was completed to a high standard, and throughout the process the team were able to offer a number of suggestions that improved on the original design. A desire for quality was evident at all times. During the build a number of additional items were added. These were costed and agreed and incorporated into the original programme. Work had to be planned around the continued use of the house and the team remained flexible in order to minimise the impact on daily life.

A genuine family firm, Shaw and Sons impressed us from start to end with their reliability, commitment, flexibility and attention to detail. They were very approachable throughout the work and happy to discuss any aspect of the job, making many practical suggestions to source the appropriate materials and to provide a high quality ‘finish’. We would strongly recommend them to anyone considering a building project in their home.

Richard and his team go above and beyond to ensure that you get the best job possible. They work six days a week and try to ensure that every day you can see that the work is moving forward. Lewis and Miles are both friendly and tidy and work hard to ensure that they keep your house tidy as they progress with the work. Richard even lowered the roof of the extension once it was on as I was unhappy with it, which was really beyond the remit of his work but he wanted to ensure that I was truly happy with the end result. They worked hard with the kitchen to find me samples and quotes to ensure I got what I wanted at the best price possible. I really cannot fault the work that they have carried out for me and would recommend their work to anyone without question.

We are really pleased with the final result. Shaw and sons kept us fully informed throughout and were very happy to tweak plans as the room began to take shape. They were very pleasant throughout. We would be very happy to recommend and will be using them again.

The work was completed to a very high standard, on time and in budget. Richard Shaw and his son Lewis were extremely helpful, courteous and reliable. We particularly liked their flexibility and willingness to discuss each phase of the work and to really listen to what we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We would recommend them highly and without reservation. We actually miss them being around - and you couldn't say that about many builders.

The work was completed to the highest of standards with complete liaison throughout the process to minimise mess (as much as one can when removing walls) and an excellent understanding our particular house having completed a number of others in the road. The end product exceeded our expectations to see it visit their website. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering any building works.
