Worth the wait, worth the money.
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.
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
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
Kitchen, attic, bathrooms, flooring, damp proofing
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.
Entire coffee shop store fitting including kitchenette area and front serving area.
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
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.
Damp course, exterior (repointing, decorating, new bay roof), remodelling interior (new stairs, removal of chimney breasts)
I was given a recommendation for Browne and Sons and have no hesitation in recommending them myself. Mike and his team of expert trades were on time, on budget and worked to a very high standard throughout. Most important for me was friendly, efficient and professional project management throughout covering building control, surveys and overall site management. I was based in London through most of the work and felt happy and confident that my property was in good hands. This was my first major refurbishment project and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this team or use them for future work.
Attic conversion, dormer window, 2 x staircases, 2 bathrooms, , 3 box sash windows, decorating throughout
Mike and his team were fantastic. The top quality of the workmanship was apparent throughout the build and was even commented on by the building regs inspector. When unpredictable issues arose, as they do with the renovation of all old houses, they had the experience and skills to advise us and remedy them. We were kept informed of works happening on a day by day basis. We were still living here throughout the build and they were all very considerate of our needs. We can't recommend them highly enough and will be using them again for future kitchen works.
