Just had our disabled bathroom put in by a1 builders.

Problem with my plumbing, but Ryan did a first class job fixing it out.
Very tidy and no mess left, even swept the drive of any rubbish.

Jim at A1 Builders and our architect undertook and completed our access ramp, paving, drainage ,doors and window and electrical work to our complete satisfaction. They kept us fully informed and we are absolutely delighted with the end result which has given us a way to leave the house safely and to be able to stay in our home.
His team were great, friendly helpful and left everything in tip top condition. We have no hesitation in recommending Jim and his workers. (Reviewed March 2022)
We are so pleased with the work that has been done and Ryan has done a great job (Reviewed February 2022)
Jim and his team took on the huge challenge of a major and complex disabled adaptation for our 7 year old son remodeling the ground floor of an older property to include sleeping and wet room facilities plus creating a fully wheelchair accessible house throughout.
The tradesmen on site were 1st class, tidy, worked in a COVID safe environment and had a great friendly rapport with us which helped as we handed over more than half the house to them for an 8 - 10 week period. Working with the architect, Occupational Therapist and our own push for the best most technically assistive environment for our disabled son, Jim and the team delivered a fully accessible forever home for us as a family which words alone cannot do justice.
Fully recommend A1 builders for complex disabled adaptations

Jim and his team did a fantastic job. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending A1. Thanks to all the workers who made our kitchen a pleasure to go into. (Reviewed March 2021)
A1 Builders were efficient, helpful and easy to talk to about changes as work went along. They came back after the work was finished to make more changes. Their communication was excellent. I would definitely use them again. (Reviewed November 2020)
From first day of inspecting the job to final day of completion the service received from A1 Builders was first class and Jim the propreiter of A1 was always on hand to help talk us through each phase of the work. Our house is a Victorian semi -detached cottage originally built in 1886 so our upstairs loft conversion in to master bedroom with ensuite plus another master bathroom was far from straight forward, however when the work was completed you would never had know how challenging it had been. First class finish throughout, delivered to timescale and at a very reasonable price. Great crew of guys on site. Nothing was too much trouble and fantastic finish. Would highly recommend A1 builders and will defo use again once wife has decided on our next must do project! (Reviewed March 2020)
Jim visited to investigate possible building maintenance work. He advised work in his specialist area was not required but arranged for 2 other tradesmen to contact me directly. He kept in touch to check that I was happy that the work was being progressed. (Reviewed October 2019)

Mr Meikleham was very thorough in talking through the work required at the first meeting before giving an estimate for the work. He was also very helpful when some problems with the existing drainage were encountered and in offering various solutions. The work was completed within the time frame estimated and Mr Meikleham was very well organised with all the sub-contractors turning up on schedule. I was very happy with the way the whole project was handled and with the finished product. (Reviewed November 2017)

We have used A1 builders in the past to fix a neighbour's wall through our car insurance. The level of professionalism we experienced made us sure that we wanted to used Jim and his team for our house extension this summer. It was quite an awkward design but Jim made sure that everything worked, even allowing us to make changes as we went along. His attention to detail and meticulous nature meant we could trust that everything was completed to the highest standard. We are so pleased that our house is now finished and wouldn't hesitate to use Jim and his team again in the future for anything as they do almost everything! (Reviewed August 2016)
Mr Meikleham consulted on a job which another contractor had completed to an unsatisfactory level. He gave free, unbiased, clear, honest advice and cost estimates as well as solutions to the rather messy and complicated nature of the problem. I would have absolutely no hesitation in employing Mr Meikleham. He replied to my phone message almost immediately. Met his appointment time promptly and was extremely forthcoming and helpful. What a luxury to find such an honest builder. (Reviewed July 2016)
Jim, Paul and Ryan provided services to convert our bathroom into a wet room, and throughout, provided a top class service with quality workmanship.

We would like to thank Jim and his team for the work they did converting our bathroom into a wet room.
They started on Monday and as promised finished on time.They were helpful and accommodating, leaving the toilet always available.
Thank you again, I would have no qualms recommending A1 Builders, hassle free and tidy. Their name says it all. Thanks again Jim. (Reviewed March 2016)
A1 Builders have done a brilliant job installing my elderly mum's wet room, also replacing the ceiling and putting in new lighting. The room is looking beautiful, almost too nice to use!
Jim arrived when planned and finished the job with his team in the timescale he had given, and all the mess was cleared up before they left.
I would definitely go back to A1 Builders for further building work and I have no hesitation in recommending them, including to people who are vulnerable due to age or disability. (Reviewed February 2016)
Our roof lost 4 apex tiles during Storm Henry. I called Jim the next day and he carried out a survey and quoted for the work (very reasonable) the same day. Next morning the work was carried out even although there was no one in the house to make payment. This is the second time that I've called on A1 Builders and I wouldn't hesitate to call them again or recommend their work. Fast, quality work at a fair price ! (Reviewed February 2016)
