Newest Review: ... one day, Darren requested a 2nd installament of 2k for 2nd week, it was clear Darren had no idea of being a project manager and was not to be trusted. I paid it as it was in his quote. The job then became drawn out. 3 more days work was completed over a month. Then no contact for the next month.

After agreeing a price and completion time of 3 weeks (with an army of labour) for a side extension the nightmare began. I paid the 1st installament 7k for a weeks worth of work, materials and labour. After one man working one day, Darren requested a 2nd installament of 2k for 2nd week, it was clear Darren had no idea of being a project manager and was not to be trusted. I paid it as it was in his quote. The job then became drawn out. 3 more days work was completed over a month. Then no contact for the next month. Then came the excuses (all excuses have been seen on rogue traders), heart attack, car wont start etc etc. Now he requests final payment after doing 5 days ... Read the complete review

Had my property "renovated" by them. They left holes in the walls, gloss paint that wouldn't dry because the surfaces hadn't been properly prepped, faulty wiring, a loose and dangerous power socket, a bathroom ceiling that hadn't been painted with waterproof paint and later cracked (photos available if you want to verify it) and failed to meet the deadlines agreed, losing me valuable rental income. Their website claims they provide a high standard of work; their work says otherwise. I wouldn't trust them to renovate a shed.They specialise in "landlord" work, so if you're a landlord, don't use them. You may find yourself with very unhappy tenants.. or worse still a claim for an unsafe property.Would give them minus 1 if I could. Trading Standards, please note!

We instructed The Allkare Group to carry out work to our property following flood damage- there was quite some work to be done but we were promised they would be able to do all the works that needed doing- They were more than 3 weeks outside the timescales that they gave for the completion of the work- The plastering work was very poorly carried out and the kitchen units have already started moving out of place after less than a year- I would not recommend these builders to anyone as they seem like they are only in it to make money and not in anyway for customer satisfaction (as our complaints fell on deaf ears)!Stay well away from this company! We would never ever use these builders again!.....

I had a large Conservatory built by Kenwyn and found them to be totally professional and reliable. The work carried out was done to a high standard and to budget which was a great help. I will be inviting them back later in the year to revamp the bathroom with no worries, i would recommend them to anybody to carry out work.

I would highly recommend Derek Petrie and Sons because: They arrived exactly when they said they would for the initial quote and to do the work. The boss Derek explained everything that would be done in easy terms as i have no building exerience. They completed the work when they said they would. They did an excellent job removing my chimney breast over two floors. The boss Derek came to the address and reviewed the work when they finished to make sure i was happy. The workers tidied up every bit of mess before they left. The price was reasonable. I was very pleased with the service. The lads ... Read the complete review
