We feel we fell on our feet when we selected Trad

Our project involved remodelling of the interior of an Edwardian House which had been messed up in the 1980s. It took 24 weeks over the winter and was complicated. Throughout that time the works were appropriately resourced and well run.
The Trad employees on the job were a pleasure to work, unfailingly polite and cheerful whatever the task at hand. We were always confident that they knew exactly what they were doing.
We are delighted with the outcome and with the final finishes which are very good. We received good value and we would recommend Trad to anyone contemplating a project like ours.

We cannot thank David and his team enough for the work that they put in

When we bought our cottage in the village of Durweston, we knew that we had a job on our hands to turn it from damp, dark and enclosed to a dry, airy and open plan space.
The work was extensive in our eyes but to David and his site team it was a regular job. The team on site ranging from the chippies, plasterers, electricians, plumbers and decorators were all very helpful along with the office based staff and the joinery team who we dealt with from time to time.
It was our experience that people enjoy working at TRADitional Building and this is demonstrated by the quality of work and the spirit in which it is undertaken.
As the end of the build came in sight and the workmen started to leave we were left with a beautiful conversion of a cottage. We cannot thank David and his team enough for the work that they put in.
We are more than happy to recommend TRADitional Building.

Very high standards of workmanship

I am writing to express my grateful thanks for all your expert advice and for the superb repairs and redecoration carried out by Mark and his team on my cottage. I could not have asked for more knowledgeable and professional support and was particularly impressed by the tremendous care and pride as well as the very high standards of workmanship.

The finished product has given the cottage a new lease of life and certainly sits now very proud in Milton Lane. Indeed your work has attracted many commendable comments from people passing.

Please pass no my thanks to all involved in this project; their high standard of workmanship was very much appreciated. I will have no hesitation in giving the strongest of recommendation to anyone in need of your expertise.

Their team was a delight to work with

Traditional Builders carried out the work to our Grade II thatched cottage in a most professional way. They were always patient and courteous, and the work was completed promptly and within the budgeted estimate.

They have had long experience of working with old buildings, where nothing is straight forward with angles and levels often off kilter. There was always a positive solution to every problem, and the level of skill of their employees is outstanding. All in all their team was a delight to work with.

I can recommend them to anyone with reservation.

I was particularly impressed with the workforce

Traditional Building worked on the renovation of my Farm House in the latter part of 2014. The work was both extensive and technical, which Trad Build promptly accomplished with efficient diligence and care.

I was particularly impressed with the workforce employed by Trad Build as being experienced and friendly.

The final invoice was very much in line with the work carried out and, more importantly, in line with the original estimate.

I have no hesitation in recommending Trad Build for all or any building work; furthermore, their experience working with older buildings is extensive, at no time was David Morgan unable to find a solution to any difficult situation.

We had an excellent experience with Traditional Building

From our first contact with Trad Build we were very impressed. The company was friendly and professional. A comprehensive quote was supplied on time, all questions were dealt with promptly and the quote supplied as the lowest price.

The staff were all friendly and helpful. The company dealt well with the changes we made as the work progressed even though some of these were quite major.

The work was completed on time. After completion there were the inevitable minor issues, these were dealt with very promptly, sometimes the same day.

In summary, we had an excellent experience with Traditional Building and recommend them without hesitation.

They definitely restored our faith in builders

After being very badly let down by another builder to do our kitchen refurbishment and boot room extension we approached Trad Build for a quote to do the work.

The standard of building work they carried out was excellent and our builders, Aid and Matt, were always on time, polite, friendly and very tidy.

Another factor we liked was the precise, detailed quotation and billing, we knew what and how much we were paying for with no hidden extras. 

We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Trad Build as a trustworthy, honest building firm. They definitely restored our faith in builders.

Sharon and Raymond O'Haire, Pimperne, Dorset

Very friendly and proffessional

We have used Traditional Building for two drainage jobs, one at home and one in our field. We found the work of the company to be excellent and achieved exactly what we wanted.

The company’s staff were very friendly and professional and nothing was too much trouble. We would not hesitate to recommend the company for building work.

The whole team were amazing to work with

Having bought and old garage, we were on the search for a builder to build our 4 storey modern town house in north east London. Our team of architects had worked with David on a previous project in London and suggested that he might be up for considering the job.

I truly believe that if David and his team had not taken on this project, it wouldn’t have got out of the ground. The whole team were amazing to work with… Honest, practical and lovely people… the house went up in 9 months and what could have been a very stressful experience was made enjoyable thanks to David.

If Abi and I ever build again, we would definitely ask TRADitional building.

I commend them to you

I have contracted with TRADitional Builders on two separate occasions over the last six years, once for a new build and once for the refurbishment of a 17th. century cottage.

The mere fact I used this firm repeatedly indicates how pleased I have been with their services.

On each occasion they have stayed within budget, plan and time with the resultant buildings have being achieved to a very high standard.

The whole team have been keen to ensure their efforts meet with the clients wishes and they have also maintained excellent relationships with our representatives.    I commend them to you.”

No hesitation in using his services again

We employed Traditional Builders to refurbish our tiny Grade II listed cottage. David Morgan was incredibly helpful right from the start.  He directed us to several suppliers for ideas for materials and finishes and was also happy for us to explore elsewhere.  He was very gifted in how to make the best use of the tiny space in the cottage.  The kitchen he created is quite incredible. 

There are so many details all down to David and when we saw the finished cottage, we both just said “wow”!  Visitors still say “wow” even after 4 years.

We were very pleased with all David and his team did and would have no hesitation in using his services again or in recommending him to others.

David Morgan and his staff were excellent

In 2010 Trustees accepted the Tender from Trad Build to refurbish our 16th Century Ryves Almshouses and outhouses in Salisbury Street Blandford Forum Dorset.

From the outset the working relationship with David Morgan and his staff were excellent.

Being a Grade I Listed Building, Trustees were obviously anxious to ensure any refurbishment was undertaken sympathetically, professionally and competently.

We can categorically state that Traditional Building achieved just that. Trustees and residents are delighted with their modernised Almshouses which we have no doubt will stand the test of time for the next century or two!

Carole Sharp, Chairman of Trustees, Blandford Forum Almshouse Charity

An outstanding renovation of my little cottage

Thank you Traditional Building for an outstanding renovation of my little cottage.
Having lived in London for over 40 years I had awful experiences with builders and the contrast has been extraordinary!
