    We had major renovations to our fisherman's cottage, a new two storey extension and considerable internal work. Michael and his team are all highly skilled, lovely people and a pleasure to work with. Even in the inevitable stress of a major build, communication was good and trust maintained throughout. We are really happy with the results and would absolutely recommend Browne and Sons.

  • Kitchen renovation

    10Verified Review

    Michael was a pleasure to deal with from the start. He responded quickly to emails and texts and we totally trusted his professionalism. We had new, larger French doors fitted, new electrics, plumbing, floor, shelving, wall cladding. The kitchen itself was fitted by another firm as we were having some bespoke features. Michael’s team were all a pleasure to have in the house and everyone left the site clean and tidy at the end of each day. He stuck to the original estimate, apart from one or two agreed extras we asked for. I recommend this firm highly and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.

  • Converting small dark downstairs bathroom to light-filled kitchen extension

    10Verified Review

    Michael Browne and his team (this is a multi-trade company) listened to what we'd hoped for and understood completely. The job was done with absolute attention to detail and care in every aspect. The result in a fairly small space is really pretty spectacular - what we'd hoped for and then some! All the way through, we knew the project was in safe hands. Thoroughly recommended

    Mike is a fantastic builder. He is thorough, spots any trouble early, and does a great job all round. We worked on a kitchen refit, reversing and adding a staircase, a new attic room and shower room, and a new bathroom. At every stage he was spot on with timings, suppliers and the standard of work is brilliant. He was good at communicating with us throughout which was very reassuring as the spec changed over the project. The costs changed with the spec, but Mike was always very clear about what the options were and what things would cost. Best builder we have ever worked with, by far.

    They were quick to get back to my enquiry and kindly managed to fit my job into their busy schedule. I always felt like my ideas were listened to and the work was completed exactly how I envisioned it. The carpentry work is outstanding and such attention to detail, suggesting to round the edges on the bar has made all the difference. The shop was always left in a very tidy manner and care was always taken to protect my floors and worktops. I was always kept up to date with the costs and never hit with any surprise billing. The work is stunning and I couldn’t be happier!

  • Ground floor extension

    10Verified Review

    Michael and his team were brilliant - efficient, communicative, hard working and kept to schedule. The quality of their work is outstanding and the build was completed on schedule with minimum disruption to the neighbours - inspite of some challenging groundwork issues in poor weather. The property they worked on is a buy to let and we were remote clients - necessitating a greater degree of trust and communication. I wouldn't hesitate to use Browne and Sons again.
