I employed Darren to do quite a few alterations to my bungalow, this included creating a new room from what was originally a garage and also altering the internal layout. I cannot express how pleased I am with the result. I felt really confident in Darren's ability to carry out all the work, and I have further work that I am pleased to say he will come back and carry out. As a single older lady, I was apprehensive about employer a builder, but felt that I had made the right choice as Darren was polite, always on time, extremely tidy and I felt comfortable with him around the house. The work he has carried out is excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. (Reviewed September 2019)
Having a shower room installed in place of a traditional bathroom is a one-off experience and it involves a not inconsiderable investment of capital: two reasons for making sure you get it right. Of three contractors, I chose Darren because he undertook to remove all spoil and old sanitary fittings; very important in a small house but also because he decided on the shower unit that would be suitable and guaranteed for 5 years. Darren was always in time to start work at 8.30 and worked diligently throughout the day. Some contractors are good at one aspect of the work but not so good on others. Darren has made a superb job of all aspects; tiling, plumbing , electrical. I am delighted with the result. (Reviewed February 2019)
Very pleased with the refit of our cloakroom. Darren was prompt, friendly and very thorough. First class workmanship with great attention to detail. Finished a day early so reduced the quote accordingly. Would definitely recommend. (Reviewed December 2017)
Darren was excellent. He took the time to understand our requirements and completed the project on time and to budget. The quality of his workmanship is superb.
I would highly recommend Darren to anyone. (Reviewed November 2017)
Very very poor communication running up to two weeks before the jobs was due to start (23/10/2017). We rung Darren to check size tiles that we could use and bought them from where he recommended. Two and a half weeks(3/10/2017) before start date we asked him to come so we could just run over the job, where he made a comment on the size of tile (which we previously had checked with him). Then two weeks (8/10/2017) before he was due to start the job he emailed to say he would not do the job as he felt we had no confidence in him, no phone call to explain just an email. We do ask questions the same as anyone else, so failed to understand this. We had his quote on 20/7/17 and he let us down after us waiting 4 months for him. We now have nearly £1000 worth of tiles in our kitchen and no-one to lay them so feel completely let down and disappointed. ***Please note the following response from the BWC scheme administrators*** We have put this feedback to the BWC member concerned. They share our disappointment that this work has not progressed as planned but advised us that after careful consideration they felt that in the circumstances it would be better to withdraw from the contract and for the client to source another contractor to carry out the work to the customers specification and satisfaction on this occasion.
They have commented that the client made a number of significant changes to the contract after the work was agreed and had also purchased materials that would require additional preparation and subsequent work and that these were not what had been originally quoted to take account of. They state that the client declined their offer of an updated quote to take account of these significant changes/additional work, which were likely to impact on the overall cost to them on completion.
Maidment Property state that in addition to two site visits they maintained regular telephone contact with their client regarding the nature of the work and the materials purchased and made arrangements to supply details of alternative contractors to the clients. Although very unfortunate they are of the view that this incident is an exceptional occurrence which is supported by their otherwise excellent feedback from previous clients. (Reviewed October 2017)
We have used Maidment Properties on our last two houses and would always recommend them, service and level of finish could not be higher.

Excellent work - we were nervous because we didn't know Darren but couldn't be happier with his work. (Reviewed May 2016)
Can't recommend Darren highly enough. He's just finished our cloakroom, family bathroom and en-suite. We will miss his 8:30 prompt starts and trustworthy, good-humoured nature - he even fed the cat one day when we were away in London! Great workmanship, close attention to detail and bright ideas made the work pass effortlessly. We miss him already! (Reviewed April 2016)

Darren is prompt and reliable. He takes pride in his work and excellent attention to detail.

Excellent, efficient service - job well done! (Reviewed December 2014)
The bathroom had to be enlarged, walls knocked down, drains re-sited, etc to accommodate disabled persons. The job had to be started without really knowing what was hidden. Despite having to overcome lots of difficulties, a fantastic job was done. Input by Maidment has given us a better bathroom than we could of hoped for and although it can be used by disabled people it is a high end top spec bathroom too. (Reviewed November 2014)
