"Over the last twelve years or more Clarkson Builders have risen successfully to all the challenges we have thrown at them.. What more can you ask of a good contractor?"
"I would unhesitatingly recommend Clarkson builders. Over the last 18 years, John and David and their team have refurbished three large London houses for us. They and their team, are an absolute pleasure to work with - scrupulously honest, well-organised, polite, punctual, efficient and they have a tremendous pride in their work.
Most recently, they installed some very sophisticated John Cullen lighting, took down ceilings, rebuilt the kitchen, built cupboards, restored the sash windows, sorted the erratic heating system, sanded some floors, re-carpeted others, installed wifi and an AV system, painted everything beautifully, plus about a hundred other repairs and improvements. The results were immaculate.
John, David and the team always give the impression that nothing is too much trouble. When problems arose they found solutions with good grace, and never complained when I added to their workload with new requests.
A sign of their professionalism is that on the last day of the job, the snag list was completed in only half a day as everything else had already been sorted out. They always took the initiative to get things right. For example, our new kitchen cupboard door had a slight twist in the wood and didn't close properly; before I had even noticed, the Clarksons took it away and replaced it.
It is a happy, well-organised company, and I am not surprised that many of their men stay with them for years. It is reassuring that they also have long term relationships with most of their outside contractors (many of the regular men and contractors remembered my six foot student offspring as toddlers!)
I wish them well and would certainly come back to them for any future project.
