  • Great team of building contractors

    10Verified Review

    Dobsons completed a full house renovation in Wakefield for us. The work included removal of structural walls, chimney stacks and some floors, full house rewire, full house replumb, new bathrooms and a new kitchen. The communication with Dobsons was excellent. The quality of work was great. Any challenges were dealt with professionally, clearly communicated and with options/solutions discussed. Working with Dobsons, our house renovation was exciting and rarely stressful. We would (and regularly do) recommend Dobsons to everyone looking for a building contractor.

    The work was carried out in a thoroughly professional manner with exceptional skill and precision, the workmen were courteous and considerate throughout the build and I don't hesitate to recommend them as we are in the process of having Dobson Builders now doing an extension with bedroom above.

    Wow, what can I say. We had planned our dream house extension and we’re completely overwhelmed by the work carried out by Dobsons. They took our plans and developed them into a reality that was far in excess of what we imagined. The quality of the job, all elements, brickwork, joinery, plastering, electrics as well as the finishing off detail, were done to such a high standard we haven’t had any snagging issues at all in the two years since. Any little extras we have asked for have been no trouble. Brilliant to have such a professional company in local reach.

    I recently hired Matt and his team at Dobson’s for an extension project and I couldn't be happier with the results. From the initial consultation to the final walk-through, the team was professional, knowledgeable, and attentive to every detail. They took the time to listen to my vision for the project and offered their expert advice to ensure that the end result was even better than I imagined. I highly recommend Dobson’s to anyone looking for a reliable, trustworthy, and skilled construction company. They exceeded my expectations in every way and I would definitely hire them again!

    Another great job! We have used Dobson Building Contractors? previously and were delighted with their work, so when we took the plunge to get a new extension, we decided to invite them back... and we are glad we did! We now have a single storey extension across the back of our home and it's totally transformed the place, we're thrilled with it. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Matt and his team; they are helpful, accommodating, hardworking and produce great results... Many thanks!
