Kind Words

Steve at Lexden Builders assumed a good regular channel of communication with us throughout the works and coordinated the build well and his team was of a sufficient scale. All of this meant the project was able to progress at a decent pace. The workers that work for Lexden Builders were of good quality. Downtime was kept to a minimum (trades on site every day until screeding) and the finished project was delivered on time, with a pleasing high end result.
