What our clients say

Listed Cottage with full Refurbishment and new extension

Chic Building Ltd completely remodelled and refurbished my 3 bedroom listed terraced cottage in Larkhall.

It had been very poorly half renovated a few years early and need a total remodelling. They gutted the whole house including the roof. Everything had to be replaced new roof,new floors,complete new plumbing and electrics kitchen bathrooms the lot. They actually found live wires buried without any insulation in two wall and there was an existing wood burning stove which was pouring out high levels of carbon monoxide !

In addition I wanted a big new extension for an extra bedroom and bathroom. They arranged architects, engineers report and obtained planning permission for me.They held my hand from beginning to end and took all the worry and stress away.

Every single little thing was taken care of with no fuss. Chic were outstanding at providing smart solutions to difficult problems without a huge uplift in cost.

The final renovation and extension cost came in under the quoted price and was finished early !!

The standard of finish was exceptional.

They did not have to return to correct a single problem or mistake.

I went from having the worst house in the area to owning the best in the area.

They truely are The Dilligent Building Company and I am happy to recommend them to anybody.

Mrs B of Larkhall

New large extension with complete internal remodelling on a 1960 semi detached house

Chic Building Ltd built a large extension converting my cramped two bedroom house into a spacious four bedroom two bathroom ultra modern house. It looks stunning.

They are highly organised and use only very experienced, intelligent, fully qualified tradesmen.

They are the rare exception in the building world and actually do what they say they will do.

We previously had several bad experiences with so called “builders” and were therefore very nervous about picking another unknown contractor.

They came highly recommended by previous clients and are full members of The Federation of Master Builders where we carefully checked them out. They showed us examples of high quality previous projects they had completed and we were able to talk to the owners to see if they were happy with the work. They were also completely transparent with their pricing and their profit margin!

Chic were highly organised and kept us fully informed about how the work was going.ย  They never left the house for days on end until the work was completely finished. The whole project ran like clockwork and the work was very reasonable priced and completed exactly on time.

We could not be more delighted and we cannot recommend them highly enough.

Mr E

A developer building 3 new houses near Bath

I chose Chic Building Ltd to be my contractor after an exhaustive search of local building companies and because they are a member of The Federation of Master Builders ( FMD)

It took a while to find them as there is every type of company out there from cowboy cash only unregistered “builders” to massively expensive companies who already have too much work. I never found another local building company who was a member of the FMB.

Chic constructs correctly with an easy to understand contract and simple pricing. They build acurately and conform to the highest building standards and do not cut corners. Every step from the detailed planning to dealing with engineers etc was made very easy. They did not even use the allotted 5% contingency in the budget.

They are amazing to work with and it is refreshing not to lie awake every night wondering what will go wrong.

I would not hesitate to use them again. They are brilliant.

Mr J โ€“ Somerset

Complete refurbishment of a 5 story listed Georgian townhouse

We chose Chic Ltd to completely refurbish a townhouse that needed everything ( including the roof ) rebuilding except for the four outside walls.

They came highly recommended by friends. They are also Master Builders.

They found and corrected lots of unforeseen problems at no extra cost. Their staff are outstanding, easy to deal with and very respectful of the building site.

We now own a fabulous spectacular townhouse in Bath and would not hesitate to recommend them to anybody.
