  • Lean to roof and cladding replacement and associated works

    10Verified Review

    Richard did an excellent job replacing our leaky plastic lean-to roof, porch roof and cladding. He understood our vision to take it from a leaky eye sore to something much more attractive and in keeping with its agricultural surroundings. The job was very challenging with many angles, different roofs and previous historical bodges, but he took it in his stride and it now looks great! We were very impressed with Richard’s hardworking attitude and attention to detail. Thank you Insideout Building.

  • Removing a stud wall, blocking up doorway and creating new doorway through brickwork,interior

    9.75Verified Review

    Richard was very friendly, approachable, efficient, hard working and punctual. He arrived each day promptly, talked us through the plan of action each day and explained if things needed to change. It was lovely to have a builder complete work to a high standard and tidy up afterwards. Quote was accurate aswell. Can't thank Richard enough for completing the works and will definately use his company again and recommend to friends in the area!

  • Building a stud wall, plastering and boxing in pipes.

    Richard helped with a last minute job to support with the installation of an en-suite cloakroom, after sub-contractors of my plumbers pulled out. Richard was punctual, personable and most importantly very good at the work that was needed. I'd definitely recommend him, and hope we can do more work together should his diary allow!

  • Excellent Work

    10Verified Review

    Richard has carried out work for me on several occasions. The most recent was the refurbishment of a large bathroom, in which everything needed to be replaced. Richard is meticulous, tidy and friendly, and charges a fair price for the work he undertakes. He has a wide range of skills and is not fazed by unexpected problems. In refurbishing my bathroom, I found his recommendations very helpful and I like the fact that when he finishes a job there are no loose ends. I have no hesitation in recommending Richard, I just wish that all builders were like him.

  • Building of large side and rear extension.

    10Verified Review

    I would highly recommend Insideout Building to anyone looking for a highly professional, accurate and positive building company. Richard was on time and did a full day, every day come rain or shine. Even with regular changes / issues with the build (nothing to do with Insideout), Richard adjusted accordingly and advised on the best method to move the job forward whilst still achieving the aesthetic we wanted. Richard also went above and beyond on many occassions with an excellent team of craftsman (plastering, electricians, plumbers, roofers etc) and always quality controlled all work done.
