Sky High Prices. I asked them to quote for several areas of renovation work including insulating a kitchen, installing 4 flat pack kitchen units, fencing, etc. They followed up asking if I'd come to a decision. Unfortunately I had to advise them that in some areas their quotes were an eye-watering FOUR times the amount of other Buy With Confidence highly rated builders. For example, they quoted almost £2000 to install 4 flat pack kitchen units and a sink unit against less than £500, tiling a kitchen £1000 more, a fence along the back of a small garden almost £2000 against £780 etc. I supplied them all the figures and said I would genuinely like them to come back to me to advise why their quotes were so high in case there'd been any misunderstanding. 3 weeks and they never replied.
We very much regret to hear that you were not satisfied with our company. Allan Ball Building Contractors are a professional business and provide workmanship of high standards as expected of us as members of the Buy with Confidence Scheme. The feedback concerned relates to the quote provided to a customer, but this was specifically a quote and the final decision is up to the consumer on whether they wish to proceed with the contract or not. Quotations by businesses are usually based on a number of variables including distance, availability of staff and other commitments in addition to cost of materials and labour. We always ensure our pricing is clear and not misleading.
North Wales Buy With Confidence Comment:
North Wales Buy With Confidence would always advise consumers to obtain at least three different quotes from different traders for comparison before making a decision on which business to go ahead with. (Reviewed March 2020)
We needed two failed double-glazed windows replaced. We received excellent service in every way. The team worked very quickly, tidied up afterwards and treated us in a polite and friendly manner. We were very pleased in every way and will certainly employ them again when we need work done. (Reviewed January 2020)

Chris, Allan and Thomas were an amazing team of builders. They delivered what they promised in the time scale. They were also totally in tune with what I was trying to achieve with the build. Their timekeeping was brilliant and they were extremely tidy at all times on the job. Excellent builders who I'd highly recommend you use. We have used them on several occasions and will use them for future projects too. (Reviewed October 2018)

Highly recommend Allan and Chris - reliable and work always done to a high standard. (Reviewed September 2018)
We needed a new kitchen fitted as was recommended to Allan Ball building contractors. Very friendly staff, Chris, Allan & Thomas very friendly, prompt, very tidy workmen, all work carried out to a very high standard. The organisation of the whole job was done brilliantly and professionally. We did need extra work doing which we had not thought about and they incorporated into the job with no problems. Would highly recommend this firm, we are very happy with all the work carried out and if in future we need any further work doing I would not hesitate in contacting them. (Reviewed February 2018)
Very efficient, punctual and clean workers. I will be using them again (Reviewed October 2017)
Carried out a refit at my salon. Their work is faultless, they take alot of pride in their work and keep everything clean and tidy. I cannot recommend their work enough and all my clients at the salon have complimented at the finish of their work.
