Customer feedback

We were really happy with the job

Builders in Cumbria undertook re-roofing in green slate, plastering and joinery. They were good to have around - very amenable with everything to be done. Punctual, did what they said they were going to do in the time specified. Builders in Cumbria were great and I would recommend them.

The work was completed on time. 

Our project was the restoration and decoration of the ground floor of an old Cumbrian farmhouse, which included stabilizing and strengthening the structure and plaster of the ceiling. The upstairs work was similar plus the addition of 50mm of Kingspan insulation board in the bedroom ceilings, re-plastering and decorating and the construction of a stud wall in the bedroom to create a through corridor. KDM have also maintained another rental property, involving wall strengthening, chimney sealing and wall waterproofing. They have also re-roofed some pigsties with plasticized corrugated iron.

The work was exactly on time and exactly on budget.

The work was of very high quality largely due to the long-term relationships with their craftsmen. All work was completely sympathetic to the age and character of the building and was carried out with great flexibility to our suggestions and the limitations of an old structure.

They are very personable and pleasant to have around

Their strengths lie in the fact that they listen well, makes appropriate and well informed suggestions and then gets on with the job, fast and to a very high standard. Builders in Cumbria are very personable and pleasant to have around. Last but not least - they clears up afterwards well."

Their preparation and client briefing were excellent 

We asked Builders in Cumbria to block pave our drive and courtyard, which had not been maintained for several decades. Their preparation and client briefing were excellent and this helped us to make some crucial early decisions. We then left to go on holiday and while we were away, they stripped out the old concrete and tarmac and took away a huge amount of hardcore. By the time we got back..., the paving was well advanced and was looking great. Over the next few days their team completed the job to a superb standard - it really does look fantastic. It was on time and budget. The things which stood out for me with Builders in Cumbria (who we will be using again on other projects) are: 1. Excellent communication and explanation. 2. Tremendous technical competence. 3. Precise attention to detail - a real pride in their work.

It was a case of KDM to the rescue.

They overhauled a house I bought which had been badly finished by another contractor. They built a new brick & slate roofed storeroom, and did all the garden landscaping to a very high standard. It was a case of KDM to the rescue.

They have a wealth of experience & it showed.

Everything they did was well considered & properly done. They have a wealth of experience & it showed. KDM worked extremely hard & the work was on budget. I always felt they were looking after my interests and was completely trustworthy. I didn't worry that things wouldn't be done properly when I wasn't there - I had complete confidence in Builder in Cumbria. They were very easy to get on with and the work was always spot on. Highly recommended."
