To whom it may concern:
Bentley Brothers completed a double storey side extension and a single storey rear extension linking through to a new garage in January 2012. It looks fantastic!
Both I and my wife are extremely happy with the extensions and all work undertaken by Bentley’s. As well as delivering a high standard of work across the board, all contractors were polite, tidy and efficient and both Paul and Andy went out of their way to ensure we remained a happy customer throughout.
As an engineer, I am aware of much of the work involved and can be extremely difficult to please and also can be fussy to ensure that the work meets my expectations. However, Paul and Andy maintained patience with me throughout and worked with me to ensure that the work was in line with what we expected and they deserve great credit for this.
Many building projects go wrong. I would suggest if you employ Andy and Paul, they will plan and check everything to avoid it going wrong but, if anything does go wrong, they will correct it. There is no question we chose the best possible building company for our project.

To whom it may concern:
We are very pleased we chose Bentleys to modify and extend our 1930s House. Having lived here for nearly ten years we knew what we wanted and when we asked for a quote, Paul supplied a very clear and concise list of the work to be done, with individual prices for each step, so there were no nasty surprises at the end of the job.
Andy’s depth of knowledge and experience was very reassuring and his team were trustworthy, reliable, polite, and professional during the whole time they carried out our work. They always arrived on time, they took great pride in their finish and helped with suggesting some very good ideas to add value.
I would thoroughly recommend Bentleys. Thank you so much for a job very well done!

To whom it may concern:
After our architect failed to secure any tenders within even twice our budget, we contacted Bentleys direct and they were able to meet our budgetary needs. Our concern was that they would need to cut corners, but nothing was further from the fact.
The build process was carried out efficiently, any problems were resolved amicably, and the finished work is an absolute delight. We would heartily recommend Paul and Andy.

We appointed Bentley’s after getting planning permission and completing structural design work to ensure that the extension was buildable, given that the existing garage had a suspended beam and block floor.
We selected them as first and foremost they took note of our specific requirements and gave us a competitive fixed price for the base works. Within days, they produced a cheaper, less disruptive structural solution; throughout the job, they made useful suggestions as to how the design might be improved.
Their team was excellent, from the scaffolders and bricklayers to the flat roof specialist, and they worked well with our solar pv installer, to ensure that their requirements were integrated in the scheme.
We are very pleased with the finished product, which has given us a lot more space but blends in with the original property.
Paul, Andy and Karen are great people to speak to if you are considering works to your home.

The Bentley Brothers have recently finished our two-storey rear extension and new pitched roof.
This was the first building project that we had undertaken, so we wanted a building firm that we could trust to do a good job on time and on budget. We approached 4 companies and were immediately impressed by the speed of response from Paul and Andy, who met with us to tell us about their company and their project plan and to respond to our many questions and concerns. This was rapidly followed up by a well presented and detailed proposal from Paul confirming the work they would undertake. This document was used as a point of reference by both parties throughout the project, so it was well worth the time spent getting it right at the outset.
We were pleased with many things throughout the project. Paul and Andy’s team of workers were a pleasure to have around the house, always cheery and considerate. The standard of workmanship was good and in some cases exceptional. Andy and Chris planned the work carefully to ensure minimal disruption to us, creating a temporary “dream” kitchen complete with washing machine, sink, cupboards, work tops and fridge whilst a new pitched roof was created over our new kitchen/breakfast room. This was a fantastic solution for which we were very grateful.

We had a side, downstairs extension built between February and August 2014. We chose Bentley Brothers as our builders because we were impressed with their professional and detailed approach to the build, setting out what was covered by them in the quote and what we needed to buy ourselves, with dates and the order of each stage of the build. We only paid at the end of each stage of the build.
There were few days when there were no workers on site and, on request, we were notified ahead of time when those days were likely to be.
All of the different contractors brought in by Bentley’s were, pleasant, courteous and professional at all times.
Andy kept in close contact during the building process to check that they were sure of the details of what we wanted, ie the opening side for windows or types of hinges etc. Of course there were inevitable hold ups and hiccups, products not arriving on time or contractor illness such is the nature of the job. If there were any concerns or comments we had to make they were received in a professional manner and promptly dealt with.
Everyone who has come to the house to see the finished product has commented on the high standard of the finish (even builder friends).
We have faith that both Paul and Andy work with integrity and will follow up should there be any snagging problems following the completion of work.

We are so glad we chose Bentley Brothers Ltd above several local competitors, to modify our home. When we asked for a quote, we were given a very clear and concise list of the
work to be done, with individual prices for each step, so there were no nasty surprises at the end of the job.
Paul Bentley was an excellent project co-ordinator and gave plenty of reassurance during the build. He supplied a weekly schedule of who would be arriving each day, what work
was to be undertaken and the current financial status of costs and payments so we always felt in control.
Andy Bentley and his team were totally trustworthy, reliable, polite and professional during the whole time they carried out our work. They always arrived on time, they took great
pride in their work and the finish was superb. They went the extra mile to please and gave good advice.
We thoroughly recommend Bentley Brothers Ltd without any hesitation whatsoever.
Thank you so much for a job very well done and creating our dream home.
Pauling and David
I chose Bentleys because from our first meeting. They were easy to talk to; they were happy to answer my questions and also willing to give advice. As I was taking on this project on my own it was very important that I felt comfortable with them. Their specification and quotation was the most professional.
I was given a detailed work schedule. The work started on time, there were a few hold ups due to the weather but I was kept informed of what was happening, who would be on site and what work they would be doing.
Andy is very experienced, any problems I had were dealt with quickly and efficiently.
Pauls organisational skills meant that all materials needed were on site in good time and didn’t cause any hold ups.
The entire team of tradesman were polite and helpful. They made sure that everything was left tidy at the end of the day. I felt comfortable having them in the house.
In conclusion I’m very happy with the work that‘s been done and would not hesitate in recommending Bentleys.
