Richard gave clear information on all aspects of the work, including an accurate time of starting, was always very tidy, and always respected your house as his own.
In 2010 he built a "garden room" to the side of our house, employing high quality workers where necessary, and recently put a window into our lounge again doing an excellent job. He gives advice on extra ideas to improve where necessary which we have benefited from, we would have no hesitation in him working for us again or recommending him. I

Rich and the team helped us turn a three bed semi detached into a modern four bedroom, spacious family home. From our very first meeting it was clear that Rich was a very knowledgeable and experienced builder. We felt instantly confident that Rich understood what we were looking to achieve. His advice and guidance was always practical and invaluable. He always approached any questions objectively and would not spend money for the sake of itâ¦he was very conscious he was spending someone elseâs money. In fact the total project came in on budget!
Rich projected managed the whole build for us, bringing in the various trades as and when required. He also spent countless hours researching and sourcing materials so ensure we had the best products for the best price.
The project did throw up some unexpected surprises and this did push the completion date back. However, Rich was always communicating and allowing us to plan ahead, especially vital with a young family.
Simmons property solutions probably arenât the quickest builders around but when youâre spending considerable sums you donât want a rush job. Their work is immaculate (many neighbour commented on this as they walk past). Rich was passionate about the job and his eye for detail shows in the finished build.
Rich and the team were a pleasure to have around the house and I would not hesitate in recommending them in the future.

Simmons Property Solutions have just completed our eleven month building project. Our old three bedroom house has been extended and completely refurbished. Richard showed an enormous amount of interest in our project from the outset.
He is an extremely knowledgeable and experienced builder. Richard and his team literally took our house apart and rebuilt it. He was able to tell us some of the history of our home by looking at what he uncovered.
He made recommendations regarding how we could change our plans in order to improve the design. We made at least three alterations to our plans and have been very pleased with the results.
Richard project managed the entire build for us. This included managing carpenters who replaced the roof and plasterers who re-plastered the whole house. He also liaised with our window fitters, kitchen designers, electrician, tiler and plumber.
Our build required a great deal of structural alterations as we knocked down walls, moved the kitchen and created four additional rooms.
In a build of this nature it was inevitable there would be complications. Richard worked with our structural engineer regarding the steels required in the house and the strengthening of the new concrete floor.
A well was discovered on the building line and Richard was able to come up with a solution to overcome this issue.
Our site was cleaned and tidied every evening. Richard and his team turned up when they said they would and worked solely on our build until it was completed.
Our project did take longer than we thought it would, but again, that was largely down to the issues which had to be overcome and the alterations that we made post planning.
Simmons Property Solutions are not the cheapest or the quickest builders in the area. However we were not looking for cheap or quick! We were looking for a builder who was as passionate about our house as we are. We also needed someone with the skills and knowledge to take our plans, improve on them and create our dream home.Richard is professional, reliable and has an eye for detail.
He worked all week on our project and then spent time at weekends organising trades to come on site, sourcing and ordering materials and liaising with us over important decisions.
His project management was excellent, he and his team were a pleasure to have on site.
I would not hesitate to recommend Simmons Property solutions to somebody who is planning an extension or renovation of their own.

We contracted Simmons Property Solutions to build a kitchen extension and knock through for a kitchen diner. All works were carried out to the highest standards with fantastic attention to detail, the result looks fantastic!
Work was completed on time, on budget and communication throughout was first class. Good technical advice and knowledge, which serves well when dealing with Building Control.
We would not hesitate in having Richard back to do more work and would not hesitate in recommending him to others. (Reviewed November 2015)
We felt straight away that we had confidence in Simmons Property Solutions. They took time to discuss the building project and to give ideas on how it could perhaps be improved. The whole of the building work ran smoothly, to schedule and the end result speaks for itself. There was great attention to detail and assistance given when ordering fixtures and fittings. The start date was delayed due to the previous job taking longer due to additions. This was no fault of the company and we felt certain we wanted to wait for them to be able to start ours and are very pleased that we did so. The site was kept clean and tidy and quite a few neighbours commented on this and on how little they noticed the works being done. (Reviewed July 2015)
excellent, although we had to wait some considerable time to start due to other commitments (Reviewed March 2015)
As soon as we first met Simmons Property Solutions, we could tell that them understood all our requirements with respect to the complete refurbishment of our new house.
They provided detailed quotes, made promises about the dates for work to be done and very importantly they always kept them. As the project progressed we would get "update" emails which ensured that we always knew what was going to.
They we neat & tidy, polite and accomodating and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
We have them lined up to do our extension soon. (Reviewed March 2015)
Extremely delighted from the initial enquiry right through to the work being completed, which was on time and within budget and price quoted.
No hidden charges or add-ons for any unforeseen extra's.
Friendly and polite through out
Very very pleased with everything, workmanship first class, left site clean and tidy. (Reviewed February 2015)
The service I required from Richard was to remove the wall between my kitchen and dining room to create a kitchen diner. After seeing the drawings I had received from a structural engineer, he discovered that they were incorrect. I was facing unnecessary costs to achieve what I wanted and it was through Richard's advice that I got new drawings and saved hundreds of pounds on the overall cost.
Whilst Richard carried out the work he ensured that the impact on the rest of the house was kept to an absolute minimum. He used dust sheets to cover other areas and I barely noticed any dust at the end of the day. The site was kept very tidy and the whole approach to the job was professional and courteous.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Richard. Thank you for a great job.

The service I received from Simmons Property Solutions was excellent. Efficient, and always updating me of there progress.
They were always very pleasant and easy to get along with.
I would certainly recommend them to anybody. (Reviewed January 2015)
We first used Simmons Property Solutions in early 2012 for some interior work. The results were so good and the whole process so easy and unobtrusive that when it came to adding a major two storey extension to the house, we naturally approached Richard Simmons and his team first. We were not disappointed. Richard's attention to detail and consideration for the client, defines the way he runs his business. His expertise and knowledge enables him to identify potential issues and recommend solutions, whilst also being able to suggest alternative options and new ideas; some of which we adopted and the results have greatly enhanced the original plans. We trust Richard implicitly and have no hesitation in recommending his work. (Reviewed January 2015)
Extremely professional. Very tidy in his work leaving nothing to clear up afterwards. Took great pride in achieving the best results. Would recommend to anyone. (Reviewed January 2015)
