“Ash and his guys are an amazing team. They looked after the place as if it was their own, which was critical since most of the time I was in the States. They gutted and rebuilt our beautiful cottage, remedied horrendous damp and structural issues, installing new heating, kitchen, bathrooms, patio etc. They have finished the place to an amazingly high standard and significantly added to its value. I cannot speak highly enough of these guys - the project would have been next to impossible without them, and every one of their craftsmen is a star at what he does. Love them to bits!”

Mr Tim Burnham

18th Century Cottage Restoration – Customer in Crowborough January 2016

“A1 delivered an amazing product that surpassed all our expectations. Ashley and his team were polite, courteous and hard working - always willing to go the extra mile and take the time to explain the various project phases. Despite unforeseen complications with the site early on, Ashley was proactively in working out options and solutions and all the team worked hard to get the project back on track. We also appreciated Ash's help in choosing fittings and final finishes based on his own experiences of what worked well in other projects. Quite simply - we can't recommend A1 highly enough!”

Mr Darren Ponsford

Double Story Extension – Customer in Tunbridge Wells November 2016

“We are delighted with the results and can't recommend Ash and the team at A1 highly enough! Our house is completely transformed and the standard of workmanship and finish is very high. From initial meeting to handing our keys back after 5 months, A1 delivered on everything we asked for. At times a tricky build with challenging neighbours, their professionalism, punctuality and consideration for others was 1st class. Everyone on site was a pleasure to deal with and Ash' s communication and attention to detail gave us confidence. My advice: trust A1 with your build and you won't be disappointed.”
