Here are a few customer comments we are proud and delighted to share with you.
Jeannie Keen – Reconfiguration/ Renovation
Room(s) to be in the conversion: 1 x bedroom, To provide living space for my Dad. Will involve a shower and possibly toilet. Sooner than later but will wait for right builder. Thanks
Utility room can house shower and toilet adjacent enter to garage. 1 windows required I believe. Current downstairs toilet already adjacent to the garage may be poss to use that dependent on drainage. Required sooner than later for my dad but will wait for right builder. Thanks. Recommendations will be appreciated.
I'm not sure if Building Regulations approval is required for this job and would like some advice
I was pleased they responded quickly sending very pleasant and informed planners. During the work as I changed my mind it was a 'can do' attitude and I never felt any pressure. I love love love the finished rooms. Everything is as it should be and I feel confident if in the next few months if I need something done - that need will be met. The guys themselves were all delightful, I was very comfortable with them. Each day they left the site tidy and safe. I would highly recommend them.
Mark Cuddigan - Reconfiguration / Renovation
Services required: construction
Work relates to the following room(s): lounge/Living room
I want to build a small wall 2 meters in width by the entrance to our barn.
They did a fantastic & very professional job building a new wall and storage area for logs in our house. Highly recommended, we will definitely be using them again. 5 stars
Ruari Fairbairns - boiler installation
Replace Conventional boiler with boiler
Install: 5 or more radiators
Additional information: 30 year old barn conversion. We need a full review of the current system and to see what needs to be done. The boiler was serviced recently but we are completely renovating the building and as such will most likely upgrade the entire heating system. Would like someone to come and review the current status and propose a solution. As major renovation work will be going on over the next months the heating system up grade will need to be before/during.
Berkshire build came to our rescue after we were let down by another contractor. We called them on Sunday the day before we went away for 5 days and when we returned we had a brand new heating system! Jake worked into the small hours to make it happen. Young entrepreneurial team we will and have used again.

Sink replacement, re-flooring - vinyl..
Excellent and reliable person who did a very good job of renovating my bathroom. The quality of work was very good . Will definitely recommend him and would use him again in the future
John KayA mixture of things
1. Converting a smallish bare room into a utility room - needs plastering (on brick), a new stud wall with sliding door to contain a new toilet (plumbing exists in room) and maybe closing off a door
2. Pull down a partition wall (breeze blocks), containing old loo, boiler etc and make wall/ceiling good.
3. Cut out hole in wall (supporting wall) and insert new door.
Ralph did a great job. Covered all aspects of work - electrics, building stud wall/doorframe, cutting out new doorway in external wall, plumbing, electrics, plastering, tiling/flooring etc. All no problem. Tidied after. Reliable and friendly too. I thoroughly recommend him
James MaceRetiling of floor and walls
stud wall setup, installation of radiator, installation of fan, ceiling plastering
Ralph did an excellent job of modernising my bathroom. He provided a detailed quote, was informative and helpful throughout the process, timely, reliable, personable and the job was executed within budget with minimum fuss. Ralph created extra space in the bathroom, so it now feels like a completely different space. I am very happy with the results and would definitely use this company again for further works I would definitely recommend to friends and family.
Tahir BhaiI need to create a number or small partitioned offices within a large space.
Simple timber frame and plasterboard to each side with rock wall inside is what is required to be build. a number of doors / frames to be created also.
After having experienced a totally hassle free refurbishment job, I have now given Berkshire Build a number of other building/refurbishment contracts. Mr Wakil, happily gets on with the task at hand, and has given me a hassle and stress free time. Mr Wakil has also done the running around picking up materials etc…. which has been a great help to me.
John BoundyReplace electrical socket plates Replace power socket plates in the house with more contemporary plates. 15 sockets. Also some of the light switch socket plates.
Ralph was great turned up on time, solved problems, did the work we had agreed and commented helpfully on other issues. He also was adaptable to problems that arose and always kept me informed, would not hesitate to use again and to recommend to anyone wanting electrical domestic work done
Nick WoodwardThe lights in the house keep tripping the circuit breaker even when no light is switched on. The circuit might trip between 30 minutes to a couple of hours.
Ralph turned up on time diagnosed the problem and suggested a course of action. While he was there got a few other annoying electrical things fixed as well. Very polite and good service, would recommend.
Nick JohnstoneKitchen socket powering fridge, which was wired/fitted 4 yrs ago, stopped working. Moved fridge onto another socket, now fridge stopped working. Need to get socket and fridge working again.
Very professional & efficient. Solved a long standing problem in my kitchen in under 5 minutes where previously I'd had an electrician from the firm 1st Action spend 1 hour being utterly clueless. A real treat to have an electrician who knew his stuff, therefore, and who could diagnose the problem and deal with it in 5 minutes. Would definitely recommend and use again.
Sarah Haddon-GrantOnly 1 out of 10 of our sitting room lights are working. We think the wires have been eaten by squirrels.
Ralph was great. He came on time and immediately located the problem. He was efficient, polite and speedy. I would definitely use him again in future.
Matt HallRenovating an existing converted room in a loft flat. floor joists to be investigated and lowered and one stud wall to be moved to extend the room. New skylight to be fitted.
Excellent. Finished on time, on budget. Very happy.
David ReidLeaky taps need fixing, droopy shower curtain could be replaced with a sliding screen. Existing bath either refurbished in situ, replaced or perhaps large shower area installed - Shower supply itself as is, is satisfactory. Floor tiling may need replacing too. Bathroom size is may be 1.5 metres by 3 metres.
Always on time. Did exactly what he said he would. Polite, friendly and on budget. I ended up increasing the scope of works slightly and was delighted with the result. Definite value for money. Importantly for me, Ralph was always able to explain what he wanted to do and why. Would use again.
Jamsheda YoungPoorly installed existing lighting system needs replacing. The number of units are: 2 in the dining room, one in the kitchen and one in the bathroom. We are interested in installing LED fittings
Ralph is reliable, prompt and polite. He did a thorough job and we are very confident in his work. I have no hesitation in recommending him further.
George SimsI want to know the price of installing spotlights into the ceiling and strips under the cupboards. currently there is one light in the middle of the room and none round the sides.
Ralph was punctual, and delivered on everything that was asked. Really pleasant chap and would be happy to have him work for me again. Top tradesman and knows his stuff too!
Jasmin AthwalRun electrics for a cooker, a fan hood with isolator switch, under cupboard lighting plus 5 spotlights.
Ralph did a lot of work in the kitchen for me as I was having a new kitchen installed so some electrical work was required. Ralph is a very friendly man and has been very reliable - always on time and ready to work. The quality of his work has been great and the value for money for the work I received is extremely competitive. He was also very tidy. Everything was in order with the supply of certificates where required after the work was completed. I am now using Berkshire Build for all of the electrics in my house.
Richard PickeringNew ceiling lights that need to be correctly fitted. Also, investigate the wiring for recessed lights to see if new ones can be installed (and installation of new ones if possible).
I had complete confidence in Ralph and he sorted my ceiling lights quickly and without hassle. I would definitely recommend and will contact him again if I need any more work
Isla GrayOne new oven will need fitting in replace of old oven.
Reasonable quote, punctual, friendly, helpful, good service, would definitely use again. Thanks
Sindy SyCurrently have 2 x 'normal' sockets (13amp) but need Hardwiring for installation of dual fuel cooker i have bought.
Ralph is the best electrician! He has come out to do two jobs for me and is very quick, prompt, and reliable. I wouldn't go to anyone else and will be using Ralph to provide all future electrical works for my house. A trustworthy man and would highly recommend to everyone!
Sylvia SumiraLights flicker on one circuit in one room.
