"My husband and I had heard of Hotchin builders through our neighbours who had undertaken an extension at the back of their house. I had seen the vans parked and the workmen seemed very quiet and respectful so I was impressed with that aspect as we live in a quiet cul de sac. We had been planning the extension, which was extensive, for a couple of years and were looking for a builder we could work with for a lengthy period of time (seven months). We saw the work that had been done on the neighbour's house and were extremely impressed. We spoke to them about all aspects of their experience with Lester and were satisfied that this was our first choice of builder.
When we first met Lester we were impressed with his friendly yet professional attitude towards us. He came across as very knowledgeable and was able to put our minds at rest over any worries we had. We both agreed that it was Hotchin builders we wanted and even though we had to wait several months for work to begin, we decided to go ahead.
This was to be a very exciting time for us as we saw our dreams gradually turn to reality. Lester was informative at every stage and we had regular meetings every few weeks on a Sunday as my husband is only available on that day. As I was at home I saw Lester nearly every day and was thankful that he was a pleasant young man as several months of seeing someone in your house may be quite arduous with the wrong person. Lester was very positive and able to suggest an alternative solution, where necessary. If that was not possible, we worked together to provide a suitable solution.
He introduced us to each of the trades he worked alongside and most of these had worked with Lester for a good length of time which is another sign of a good builder. They all worked diligently and cleanly whilst being polite and courteous at all times. They turned up usually at 8.00 on the dot and often worked past 4.00.
Our extension comprises of two extra rooms above the garage and a large extension on the back of the house. The difference it has made to our house is amazing and we are thrilled with the finished product inside and out. The work was carried out to the highest standard and we would recommend Lester Hotchin builders to anyone who is looking for a highly professional and skilled job."

"Lester and his team carried out work to extend our original kitchen and produce a more open space for us to live in. We would like to take this opportunity to express our upmost appreciation for the quality and reliability of the work completed. The team provided a thorough service, completing all work to a very high standard, and the excellent project management and the alliance of all workers involved, meant we were kept informed throughout, allowing the deadline to be easily met. This is a company I would highly recommend, if you are looking for the complete package."
