Two side extensions, a garage conversion and complete landscaping

Verified Review

The project is not yet complete due to the weather and finances but so far I can say with absolute certainty that everything has been done to the highest standards. No corners have been cut and we know the building will last us more than a lifetime. Any building project of this scale will undoubtedly have unexpected issues but they do well to find solutions to problems. We are now on pause until April next year when the weather warms up again, then full steam ahead to completion and I have no doubt that we have found the right partners in 1st choice for this project.

Extensive refurbishment and repairs.

Verified Review

Russell and his team completed a complex refurbishment, as additional work was required , before the work could progress. In addition, Russell was particularly creative in making the most of the available space , which needed to accommodate an new Shower area. The work was completed to a high standard and Russell kept me informed throughout the project. His team are courteous and friendly and hard working. I would recommend 1st Choice for all types of building work including rewiring and installing a completely new central heating system with Hive Technology.

I've been using 1st Choice for years and what sets them apart are the people they use, from the admin to the craftspeople they are not just good at their jobs just really nice people too. It does make a difference and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Major ground and drainage works, levelling up and laying of edging and large porcelain slabs

Verified Review

The guys from 1st Choice worked extremely hard from day 1 to completion. They were polite, friendly, respectful and always cleared up after themselves leaving the site tidy and safe each day. Their workmanship was excellent and we are extremely happy with the finished driveway. Would definitely recommend them for all building, ground works and driveways.

Garage conversion

Verified Review

First Choice converted our garage into a laundry room and new study. We were impressed by the work which was done and are very happy with the result. Lee, Dan and the team were a pleasure to have in our house and were very courteous. Several people in our street have also complemented us on the quality of the work which was done, particularly how the new brickwork was blended into the existing. Well done and thank you!
