Reliability and Workmanship

Customer reference for Expand Building Services as told to pickapro by John from North County Dublin on 23-May-2019

When was the work done?
October 2017.

What was involved?
Expand completely redid our back garden, built a shed, put in corner seating, raised beds, artificial grass and granite paving. They also put up fences, made a storage area for our bins, installed outdoor lighting and covered our outside boiler. They also redid our front garden as well - removed the grass and put gravel down instead. The shed is really more of a garden room, I'd say. It's tiled and painted inside. It's just like another part of the house really.

We have a big, massive slider in the kitchen so we brought the level of the garden up to that so when you walk out it really is like you're still inside the house

How did you choose Expand Building Services?
I've known Neil since he was a kid so I asked him to quote. We asked a few other people to quote as well but Neil's quote was better and he was someone we knew. We also liked that he did everything start to finish and managed the whole budget for us. I just wanted to deal with one person really.

Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to Neil Boyle?
Yes, I had a fair idea of what I wanted. We have a limited space in the backyard so we wanted to keep one corner for where we're going to sit. Then I wanted a shed to put our bikes and tumble dryer in.

Did Neil introduce new ideas?
He was able to suggest things that, maybe we hadn't thought of. All I'll say is that it turned out better than I could have ever thought.

How did the project run?
Well, I'm very particular about this stuff and I couldn't have been happier. They was here everyday and everything was cleaned up impeccably everyday when he left, the place was cleaned and power hosed down. The workmanship was really good - the slabs were all laid perfectly.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using Expand Building Services?
It's the flexibility, reliability, and the workmanship really. Anything we asked for, it wasn't a problem. Neil managed the entire project - it was easy to just deal with one person.

What's your favourite part now?
Well, there's a new corner bench that sits about ten people. That and the shed. It just made the garden more functional.

Would you recommend Expand Building Services to others?
Yes, nothing was really too much of an ask from him, he did everything that we asked and more to be honest.
