"I felt I must write to thank you and all your team for the wonderful job you have done building our lovely extension. This was a major build involving natural stone and stone tiled roof. The end result is stunning and that isn’t just our view, without exception friends and neighbours congratulate us on the finished look and how well it blends in with the existing cottage. Throughout the build you and your team showed professionalism and flexibility when required. I would have no hesitation in recommending you and would be happy for you to quote us."
Mr and Mrs F, Little Somerford
"Having used Simon Pike Builders for the complete renovation and extension to our house, we would certainly recommend his services to others. We were kept fully informed of all progress, and whenever any queries arose Simon was prompt in drawing these to our attention and subsequently resolving them with the minimum of fuss. His team were efficient and tidy workers, even though the house was a building site for over 4 months. They were always aware of any disruption the works might make in our very small village and very accommodating when asked to do something that might not have been part of the original remit! All the works have resulted in a house that has met and surpassed our expectations which Simon helped to fulfil.
Mr and Mrs S, Alderton
"Simon and his team have been excellent throughout the renovation of our property. From the initial tender through the construction works and following up any snagging problems, everything has been done with great care and exceptional attention to detail. I cannot recommend him and his team highly enough."
Dr P, Tetbury
"Having already used Simon for some small building works, and having been impressed by the professionalism of his team, we had no hesitation in choosing Simon to do the major renovation on our listed property. The work started on the date promised and throughout the project we were fully involved in the decision-making. Simon was always available and ready to listen to our concerns. He clearly enjoyed the challenge of problem-solving when it came to dealing with an old property. The completed work has been done to a high standard and we are very pleased with the result."
Mr and Mrs W, Cricklade
"Simon and his team were competent and hard working - both valuable attributes when structural integrity and timing counts."
Mrs T, Malmesbury
"Thank you Simon and your team for transforming my dilapidated listed cottage into the lovely home it is today. All problems along the way were quickly overcome and the whole team helped make the six month project period almost enjoyable! The quality of work has been outstanding and I will be happy to recommend Simon Pike Builders to prospective clients and show them my transformed cottage and garden."
Mrs L, Sherston
"Over the past two years, we have worked with Simon and his team to complete two projects for us; a family kitchen extension and a garden office. Our very positive experiences on the kitchen project meant that Simon was the obvious choice for the garden office. Simon listens! He understood what we were trying to achieve and then used his own expertise to shape the final plans. His approach to quoting and invoicing is excellent, always detailed and easy to understand – any additional costs being agreed before the work was carried out. His own team are fun, great to have on site and produce excellent work. Just as importantly, Simon and his team worked extremely well with the specialist trades we had engaged separately.
In short, we are delighted with the work Simon and his team have produced for us and would recommend his services without hesitation."
Mr and Mrs K, Cirencester
"Simon is a professional and personable builder who has very high standards himself and works with a close team who are equally skilled and very pleasant. We had a studio and office built after a difficult planning consent and Simon was very understanding of the difficulties we had and was very relaxed in his approach which made the whole building process not nearly as stressful as the planning.
The quality of work is excellent and we have a super building because of this.
We made a few changes during construction and there was never a problem that we could not work round. Simon is also very good at suggesting alternatives and/or give ideas and is very quick to sort anything out. His easy manner is a result of hands on experience and careful and detailed planning. Costings were accurate and any extras pointed out. The build took a little longer than originally thought but weather is not always on side! We would not hesitate to use Simon and his team for any future work and would highly recommend him."
Mr and Mrs S, Malmesbury
"After living in the house for 11 years and knowing we needed to do work to it, we found an excellent architect, who was prepared to draw up plans and help us find a good local builder to take on the work. As the house is a Grade II listed building we wanted someone who had worked with old buildings before and would be prepared to work alongside us. We had heard of Simon Pike Builders but knew nothing about him. What a find!
Simon is fabulous, he has overseen every part of the build which hasn't been easy in such an old property, access has been difficult at best with a main road right outside of the house to contend with and all materials having to be taken through the house as no other means of access available.
Simon and the team are incredibly talented and very tidy workers, given my OCD nature this has been impressive. Their attention to detail is phenomenal. If you are looking for a quick in and throw it up, don't look to Simon. This is not going to happen, it is not in his nature to provide a shoddy job. You will have to wait, however the end result will be exactly as you imagined if not even better. Our project although small by many standards far exceeds our expectations.
We would definitely use Simon again in the future. Thank you Simon and the team, you have turned our house into a fabulous home."
Mr and Mrs H, Malmesbury
"Simon Pike Builders have recently completed a significant building project for us: converting a pair of cottges into a single dwelling with a rear two storey extension, a garden room and a separate garage. Throughout this year-long project we have been extremely happy with the quality, expertise and professionalism of Simon Pike's team and the sub-contractors he recommended. In addition to the quality of work being outstanding, the administration has been excellent (e.g. Transparent budget process, regular site meetings) and Simon has worked extremely well with our architect, structural engineer and Building Regulations Officer. We would have no hesitation in recommending Simon Pike Builders to prospective clients."
Mr and Mrs M, Near Cirencester
"Simon Pike was, by some considerable margin, the most professional... his estimate was very accurate and the work was carried out on time and on budget. He employs first-rate young tradesmen who he supervises closely. I commend him to prospective clients."
Mr N, Malmesbury
"We have used Simon Pike for a number of projects over the years, which have included a large extention and a significant upgrading to an older property. We have nothing but good things to say about him. His expertise, work ethic and the team that he uses are second to none. We are happy to recommend him to anyone."
Mr and Mrs B, Malmesbury
"The building inspector has now issued the completion certifcate and we wanted to know how pleased we are with the extended kitchen and porch. Your team were great, even through the worst of the weather, always professional and sympathetic difference to the finished look. We were also grateful for your frequent site visits and again your patience with my questions and occasional change of ideas."
Mrs A, Charlton
"We first employed Simon Pike Builders when we undertook a large project that was to become our home. What could have been a very stressful time was made easier by having a professional, helpful builder who helped us maintain our sense of humour throughout the build. We were working to a very tight budget and Simon did everything he could to help us achieve our dream within that budget. He came up with some great ideas and very quickly seemed to understand exactly what we were trying to achieve. We have since moved on and once again found ourselves in need of someone to do some building work for us so didn't hesitate to contact Simon. He is completely professional and incredibly helpful; we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Simon should anyone need a reliable and trustworthy builder."
