“Robert Anthony provides a friendly and good-humoured service with an approachable and polite team. He was considerate and supportive of our needs and was willing to take the time to explain things in plain English. Regular follow up calls throughout the week ensured we were always kept informed. Rob returned our calls, remained flexible throughout and every effort was made to ensure we were always happy. Consequently, we continue to call on Rob for other building and carpentry projects around our home.
The finish of the build is excellent. The outside of the extension looks fantastic and fits very well with the original building. The space created within is now our favourite part of the house. Money well spent!”

“Rob Anthony and his team came to remove a chimney from stack to floor and to replace the kitchen for us. We were dreading it – the mess, the noise, the commotion. And we feared the delays you always hear of with builders, who are happy to start the work but never seem to finish it. But we were delighted. Of course it took a little longer than Rob had hoped – partly because we kept adding jobs to the contract. So, he also removed another hearth, re-plastered here and there, erected fencing and replaced gates, boarded the loft and fitted a new loft ladder, replaced some of the double glazing panes, added new potting shelves by the garage, fitted a new gulley ….. We wouldn’t have done so if we hadn’t been happy with his workmanship and pricing.
As for the jobs, the kitchen looks great and works well. The new boiler is terrific. The study is much bigger and more usable without the chimney stack. And the loft is a wonderful easily-accessible storage area. The team minimised the mess and – almost every day (!) – came as promised. Rob’s great strength is his cheerfulness, optimism and good humour, which may be why he can always get his subcontractors to come round when he needs them – brickies, plasterers, plumbers, electricians … The work was done to a good standard, Rob was flexible about getting everything done to fit in with our priorities and the price was reasonable.
The only thing is that they drink a lot of tea and coffee – so make sure the kettle is always at hand!”
