Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.
 


 
Good Practice
Businesses have a legal responsibility to treat you fairly, but it's often hard to know what questions to ask or what standards to expect.  They are the experts and you should be able to rely on them to help you make decisions.  These questions explain the commitments that this business has made to follow a code of practice and they will help you understand what you have a right to expect.

 
Charges: 100%
Before starting work, did the firm explain the charges including labour, materials, callout & VAT (as appropriate)?
 
Timing: 100%
Before starting work, did the firm explain when the work was expected to start and finish?
 
Payment: 100%
Before starting work, did the firm explain how to pay (e.g. cash, cheque, etc.)?
 
Reliable: 100%
During the work, did the firm keep their promises, explaining and agreeing any changes about the work, costs or timing where necessary?
 
Invoice: 100%
On completion, did the firm give you an invoice showing the cost of materials, labour and VAT?
 
Guarantee: 100%
On completion, did the firm give you a guarantee for a specified amount of time, or usage (where applicable)?
You can see how many customers have said "Yes" in answer to each question, but please don't expect 100% in every case.  Nobody's perfect and some customers may not be completely sure about the answer.  It's more important that you understand these questions and discuss them with the business so that you both agree what good service means for you.  A responsible business will be happy to explain the details to you and it's always better to clarify these points upfront to avoid misunderstandings later on.

Refurbishment of bathroom. Repointing of external walls

"The firm refurbished a bathroom (new bathroom suite, retiling, new lighting and flooring) and repointed the front and side of the house (replacing cement joints with sand/lime mix). For both jobs the work was of a high quality and completed within a good time frame. The builders arrived promptly each day and were careful to clean up before they left. They were all very friendly and kept us up to date with progress, as did Stefan via e-mail and site visits. Overall we were very pleased"

Removal of chimney breast
 
Cost: £6500
 

"Having had a poor experience with two sets of builders and a dreadful experience with a third when renovating our last house in Sussex, it was with some trepidation that we hired S1 Builders to remove a large chimney breast from the kitchen and the room above it in our new house in Norfolk. But our experience with Stefan and his team was so different:
• They turned up on time. They said 8.00. to 8.30. and every morning they were here by 8.10. and ready to start work
• They put in a full day’s work, never leaving before 4.30. and, on two occasions, staying later than that
• They were pleasant and friendly but got on with the work and didn’t waste my time talking about themselves, their families or the films they'd seen
• They worked methodically and were meticulous about keeping the area clean.
• Every day before they left I was told what they’d done and what they planned to do the following day
• The standard of work was high and we were consulted throughout the process.
• They allowed two weeks for the work and finished a day early.
Stefan, please clone yourself and your team – Sussex needs you!"

Customer Review
 
Since moving to North Norfolk last year we''ve used S1 Builders for work ranging from roofing to fencing and modifications to a workshop. We''ve just asked them to go ahead with some drainage work and connection to a main sewer. They''ve always been efficient and friendly delivering a good standard of workmanship at decent prices. Recommended.

"The description of the work and the fact that we've gone back to S1 Builders asking them to do more work says it all. They turn up on time, do good work and always put in a full day. Always friendly and helpful. When a neighbour had some work by another builder that needed scaffolding, S1 completed the work on that side of our home first in order to give them access."

We had a brick retaining wall built on our driveway - new curbing stones laid the whole length of the drive. Large patio laid in the rear garden.

"A date was set for 7th January, and S1 arrived as scheduled on time and discussed with us again the works required to ensure everything was covered. They impressed us with their organisation, efficiency, neat and tidy workers who left the site each day in an orderly fashion.
The work was completed to a high standard and we would have no hesitation in recommending this company. On the last day they even worked with the aide of external lighting to finish some steps in the front garden."
