“Dean Bickerton and his team undertook a complete room renovation for me. This involved knocking down and bricking up walls, replacement of ceiling, electrical work, roofing, bricklaying and plumbing. On top of this, I live in an old property which required sympathetic treatment. I had around 5 quotes for the work and Dean’s sat fairly in the middle. However, it was on Dean’s visit out to quote that I was immediately impressed with his professional approach and knowledge. He was asking questions that none of the others had asked and despite having thought the job through and having made a comprehensive list of everything that needed doing, his expert eye brought other considerations in. This was really good because it made the quote all the more accurate, open and true and in the end the only extras I paid for were amendments I made along the way which Dean was flexible enough to accommodate. Dean came to me through recommendation via a friend of a friend; I did not know him before he worked for me but I can absolutely 100% recommend him too and do so without a moment’s hesitation. The work he has completed on my home has gone above and beyond the level that I was expecting. Every single one of his team completed their part in an expert and high quality way. They didn’t just get the job done, but showed really impressive craftsmanship, taking care over seemingly small details when needed, to ensure that the finished job is so beautifully carried out and something to be very proud of. They constantly blew me away with their eye to detail and the work they put in; they have preserved historical features that were already there and emulated them in the new building works completed. There was somebody on site every day and they never stopped. They all spoke to each other, to me and to neighbours with courtesy and respect and I felt totally comfortable having them in my home and leaving them when I had to go out. The blend of excellence in building skill across all trades, sympathetic restoration, craftsmanship and congenial manner means that I would never use another builder again. I would always wait for Dean in future and I feel lucky to have found him to make my home look so beautiful.’ Helen (Weston)”
We first contacted Dean when we were looking to convert 2 cottages into 1 property. We provided him with detailed plans, electrical, lighting and plumbing schedule, and the initial quote was well detailed and accurate. The start date was as promised, and the project ran to time.
Due to the age and complexity of the old building there were a lot of unknown until the work started, Dean and his team did a great job of explaining changes as they happened and any extra work was costed and explained before being undertaken, so the whole process was transparent with no “surprises” at the finish.
Communication was excellent throughout and minor snagging was completed very efficiently. It should be noted that snagging was very insignificant, as the quality, attention to detail and overall workmanship was of a very high standard. The D Bickerton LTD team are a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend them.
“When we decided to have an extension to the back of our house we had three quotes, one was very high and the other two were the same, we chose Dean because he was very pleasant and understood what we were aiming for and even suggested some improvement’s to our ideas. We booked him in and work commenced, he was at our house every day at 8 am and worked tirelessly to get the work completed come rain or shine and always with a smile. Explaining every night what they would be doing the following day. He made sure we had water available and that the heating could be switched on if we needed it through the night. The workmanship was excellent and we were very happy that we had chosen Dean and would have him doing any other work if we needed it, in fact he came back some month’s later and did all the fascia boards and soffit’s to fit in with the new ones. The work came in on budget and on time. I would highly recommend Dean to anyone.”
“I used D Bickerton builders on a couple of my projects as I’ve been very impressed with his work ethic and time keeping and how much work they achieve in a day! I left them in total control of a refurbishment project and they kept the budget and time scale. I would not hesitate to use them on future projects”
“Dean has completed various projects for us over the past few years, including groundworks, block paving, joinery, plastering, electrics, and Bathroom. We have always been exceptionally pleased with his high standard of work and would highly recommend Dean Bickerton Builders. Personally recommended and completely satisfied with our kitchen extension. From our first meeting until completion I could not fault their friendly business attitude. Kept fully informed at all times of work to be done which was always started as promised. Standard of workmanship is excellent and would have no hesitation in employing them again for future work on our property.”
“Dean was first to know us last year when he completed an extension and adaptations to our existing property for a disabled child and more recently to fit a new kitchen and bathroom. D Bickerton Ltd is a family run business who carry out work to an extremely high standard producing quality workmanship, In fact i would go as far to say they are all perfectionists. All members are enthusiastic about their work. They are clean and tidy ensuring high standards of health and safety. They are punctual, hardworking, friendly, approachable and trustworthy. Dean the Director has strong leadership skills. All his staff make time for humour, each member of staff appear to be committed to their work and carried out to a very high standard. To us they have become like an extended part of our family and I would have no problems with highly recommending them to do any work for us in the future. You will not be disappointed with their quality of work. All work was carried out with great care to minimise disruption to the rest of the house. When leaving work for the day they were very good with cleaning things so we did not have to keep tidying up when they left. Any other work that we would require in the future we would always ask them first. I would highly recommend Dean Bickerton of D Bickerton LTD.”
“Dean Bickerton builders have completed a 4 month loft conversion and total refurbishment of my bungalow. The project was completed on time and on cost. The work is of the highest standard. We essentially have a new house inside an old body; everything went except the outside walls and the chimney breast. The whole experience with Bickerton builders was a pleasure. The project was very well managed and Dean has produced a high-quality home and we’re really delighted. We have no hesitation in recommending him and his team”
“Dean and his team completely gutted back to bare brick, they replaced electrics, plumbing, ceilings, walls, built a brand new loft conversation, new roof, replaced a downstairs bathroom, built new bedrooms and bathroom upstairs, put in new security and safety features and new windows and glazing. The team worked very hard, were very courteous and informative and I can’t thank and praise them enough for a job well done and in the timescale, Dean promised. I would recommend them anytime. A brilliant and meticulous job done.”
