Ben, Mark, Jason and all of the trades Ben coordinated were fantastic. Family have used the Darby's in the past and so when proceeding with Ben and his team I had little doubt they'd do a fine job; and they did. Trustworthy, reliable and high attention to detail - not a lot more you can ask. Highly recommend to anyone. (Reviewed March 2023)
Ben and the team were punctual efficient and tidy. Very pleased with the work carried out which included the blocking up of a doorway, the insertion of a new side window which allows plenty of light, knocking through a dividing wall and inserting glass French doors. A great job at a fair price.

I can't recommend Ben, Mark and Jason highly enough! We used them off a family recommendation and I wouldn't hesitate to suggest them to anyone! They are friendly, efficient, tidy, trustworthy and really do go the extra mile. We will no doubt be using them again in the future for any work we have, trades akin to these guys are like gold dust.

The whole team were punctual, worked carefully and speedily completed tasks to a high level. They left the house clean and tidy. I was very pleased and rate the business as excellent. (Reviewed October 2022)
This is the 2nd project that the Darby's have done.
Always excellent work.
Always very clean and tidy after.
Have already recommended to my neighbour. (Reviewed February 2022)
Ben and his brother built our 2 storey house extension with his father Gil 13 years ago which we are totally satisfied with not only the build but the professional attitude and work ethic on site dealing with any issues and communicating with us on a daily basis and leaving the site clean and tidy every day taking care to be considerate and not inconveniencing the neighbours during the process.
Our 1960's roof needed to be re-felted recently and it was with no second thought that I contacted Ben to do the work.
From quote to finished roof they did a fantastic job, 5 days to strip and re-felt reusing our cleaned tiles and putting on brand new ridge tiles and repointing the chimney.
True professionals, a credit to the trade and highly recommended. (Reviewed October 2021)
We cannot recommend Ben, Mark & Jason highly enough. They were extremely helpful from start to finish, extremely knowledgeable, kept the site tidy & organised at all times, respectful of the clients property, very thorough & carried out each piece of the work to the highest of standard. Thank you so much guys. (Reviewed September 2021)
This was the second major extension Ben and team did for us. The first one was double storey side extension done 5 years back and this was rear kitchen diner. It was no-brainer for us to go back to Ben again. Ben is not only an excellent builder, but a great leader for his team and a well organized project manager. There are so many things about building work, about which we don't know what we don't know. Ben knows what is critical enough to educate you about the options for, so you can participate in decision making, and takes care of all trivial aspects on his own. I will highly recommend Ben and team for any scale of building project. (Reviewed September 2021)
I can't praise Ben Darby and boys highly enough. He made the whole process and experience of our extension as stress free as possible. Nothing was ever too much trouble and we always felt the decision making process was made easier. They were always very clean and tidy and the site was always cleared every evening before they left. Would highly recommend. (Reviewed May 2021)
Darby Builders are thoroughly professional in their building work. The full specification was met and a quality build. Always a tidy site and clear communication through out made the build less stressful.
Regular and clear payments helped with managing payments and all work was itemised.

Ben, Mark and all sub-contractors worked brilliantly together to build a room over our garage. Despite the pandemic, they performed heroically to complete an extension that looks stunning. Many people have commented that it looks like it was a part of the original house, such was the expert way they matched all the bricks, tiles and woodwork.
Throughout the build, Ben was always willing to listen to proposed changes and worked with us to accommodate what we wanted. I fully appreciated his patience, flexibility and good nature in our discussions - it made us feel more and more confident that we had chosen the right builders (and sub-contractors).
I wholeheartedly recommend Ben Darby Builders. (Reviewed August 2020)
Ben and his team have been outstanding not only in workmanship put Knowledge of construction, as the project started there were several suggestions were put forward to adjust the building work to improve design and if possible to save money on the building work.
I would highly recommend B Darby Builders and I will have them back later in the year on any other project, they are professional in workmanship and personally.

I couldn't have wished for better builders.
All work was done the 'proper way', with no corner cutting.
The team were a pleasure to have around and I missed them after they left.
You couldn't ask for more polite, tidy and thoughtful builders.
Every challenge they came across was carefully considered and thought out, with nothing they couldn't solve.
Many passers by commented on how great the extensions look and good the brickwork was.
I would recommend without any hesitation! (Reviewed June 2020)
