Chris and his experienced team were all very friendly and did a great job. Work was carried out to a high standard and we are really pleased with the finish.
Side porch extension, full garden makeover including hard landscaping, fencing, turf.
We could not be more delighted with the work Rookwood have done for us. The side extension on our house has had such a positive impact to the flow of our house, and our children are delighted with the bigger garden. Chris and his team were great to have on site - they work efficiently, clearly explain all the intricacies of any issues that arose, and helped to find solutions that worked within our budget. All the team were very polite and friendly to our 3 young children, patiently answering their many questions! We would definitely recommend Rookwood.
New Kitchen, 2bathrooms, 2staircases, studwalls, removing 2chimney breasts, re-wiring, plumbing.
A friendly, approachable team. Rookwood made helpful suggestions and offered amendments to our original plans that were more practical/sensible. If unexpected problems arose they provided solutions with our budget in mind. They replaced two steep, unsafe staircases with ones that now meet building regs and look amazing. Rookwood have achieved exactly what we were hoping for. With their knowledge and skill, we have updated our victorian cottage to cope with modern life, incorporating better flow through the house whilst maintaining its character. We would highly recommend Rookwood Construction.
Repair and refurbishment of large outbuilding roof.
The work was quite extensive and we needed it done fairly quickly. Rookwood were great about scheduling the job around their existing commitments at very short notice so it would be done in time. Helpful, knowledgable and hardworking, Chris, Antoinette and the guys did a terrific job and were a pleasure to deal with. In spite of various unforeseen issues arising they still managed to complete the job for slightly less than the initial quote. Couldn't be happier and we're already hoping to book them in soon for more work.
Conversion of garage and design and fitting of kitchen
The job involved all trades and as well as working hard in sometimes difficult conditions Chris, Antoinette and their team achieved just what I had envisaged. Communication during the works was excellent. Everybody was punctual and worked cleanly and cheerfully. The careful planning of the conversion and the design of the kitchen made the most of the space available.
Relaying our patio and building raised brick flower beds
Rookwood Construction have done an absolutely fabulous job with what was a very tired terrace. We kept the original stone slabs which they cleaned and then replaced on to new foundations. Two raised brick flower beds were built to a very high standard and with great care. I can't over-exaggerate the positive transformation it has had on the entire garden. Chris, Shane and Richie are professional, very capable and considerate - I wouldn't hesitate recommending them. Thank you!
Chris and his team have just finished converting part of our garage into a home office. We are extremely pleased with the end result. This is the fourth building project Chris has completed for us (one being a very large extension). Every time we undertake a building project we always get several quotes but end up appointing Chris because he is competitive and we know the job will be completed on time and will be completed to a high standard. Chris is extremely knowledgeable and experienced and will often come up with money saving and space saving ideas that we have not thought of.
House refurbishment (internal and external)
Interim review of project: We're very pleased with the work on our house so far, both in terms of the quality of workmanship (workpersonship!) and advice offered throughout. Our house turned out to be more challenging beneath the surface than even we had anticipated. But Chris, Antoinette and the team kept us informed and were very pro-active in identifying solutions to problems and improving on original plans where possible. Everyone in the team is friendly and helpful. And Antoinette also helped us create a kitchen layout infinitely better than we had managed for ourselves!
Complete Renovation of Bungalow
Chris and the team have worked tirelessly on the refurbishment of our bungalow. There were many issues thrown up and Chris worked hard to provide cost effective solutions often spending time researching options and suppliers to ensure the results met our needs and budget. All the team were friendly involved us in decisions, are highly skilled, knowledgeable and totally professional. The quality of work is excellent and Chris and all the team were a joy to have around and we would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them. Rookwood have built us a beautiful home - thank you.
Decorating and carpentry
I was delighted by the work that Shane and Richard carried out for me. I had three rooms redecorated with some carpentry work, too. They arrived on time every day, were great company to have around and left the property clean and tidy at the end of each day. The quality of their work was very good. They are just about to start another job for me; relaying my patio and building a retaining wall for two raised beds. I'm looking forward to having them back and feel totally confident that they will do a wonderful job!
