Nu Build added a single-story extension across the back of our property. It was quite a complicated project and involved specialist structural input from a third party, due to the size of the supporting steels required and the finish we wanted to achieve. Despite the complex nature of the work, the build went very smoothly and to schedule. Andy, Ray and all the guys on site were brilliant to deal with, really friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. The work was quite extensive and meant the entire ground floor of our house was out of action. However, the guys on site were really conscientious in making sure the mess was minimised and contained and that the property was secure when they left each day, which allowed us to continue to live in the upstairs. The workmanship on things like the brickwork, joinery and plastering was really excellent and we couldn’t fault this. We're really pleased with the work they have done for us and would definitely recommend them to anyone planning any kind of building project.

Nu Build did some work for me in Doncaster in spring 2018, the job was to rebuild the gable end on a stone built barn. I had them recommended by a family member who was really pleased with some work they had done. As well as the recommendation, the quote I got from Nu Build was also competitive. The job involved supporting the roof and side walls, taking down the unsafe wall, digging and laying new foundations and then rebuilding the stone wall with a block-work inner skin.They also dug a soak-away for rain water drainage. I am really happy with all the work that they did and all work was done to the time scale that they gave. They took the original wall down carefully and safely, which involved moving some huge pieces of stone by hand. They then proceeded to dig the foundations. The concrete for the foundations was poured on the exact morning they said it would be. The rebuild of the stone wall was quite technical as it was done with stone of varying shapes and sizes, but their workmanship was still excellent. The Nu Build team on site were always very friendly and pleasant and were more than happy to explain things or answer any questions that we had. They also did a few extra bits of work patching up parts of other walls in the barn.The site was left clean and tidy at the end of the job. The finished work looks fantastic and I have had several comments from people saying the same. I would not hesitate to recommend them and would definitely use them again myself.

I had an adaptation as I have two elderly parents both with Alzheimer's. I couldn't recommend this team enough. They worked with me every step of the way to create the most wonderful bathroom that we could ever imagine. The manager was connectable at times and even replied to an enquiry whilst on his holiday! There was not one thing that was too much trouble and the installer was brilliant too. He went above and beyond and explained things as the job progressed. His enthusiasm and commitment to making a specular job was very much appreciated. We used natural slate tiles on all walls and it did not even look like an adaption. The finished result was breathtaking. My parents absolutely love it and this was my main hope given their condition. A fantastic job. I would highly recommend and will have the team return to renew the smaller bathroom! Thank you sincerely

Nu-Build have recently transformed a store cupboard accessed from the outside of the house into a downstairs WC, now accessed from my hallway. Work involved bricking up, knocking through, moving a gas meter onto another wall and boxing it in along with a concealed cistern and other plumbing, electrical and plastering works. Workmen arrived on time each day and were polite, trustworthy and kept me informed of what was happening when. They kept the surrounding areas of the house as clean as they reasonably could. Very pleased with the service and work done. Will definitely contact them again for future works.

Could not be happier with the work completed by NU Build earlier this year. A basement conversation from a void space into a bedroom with shower room and separate utility space with a doggy shower, also a staircase from the main house down to the new area. Professional throughout from initial appointment to completion. The whole team were friendly and all the work was to an excellent standard. Highly recommend for any building work, could not happier.

Last year I moved into my first home where the garden needed a lot of work doing to it. I had Nubuild work on the garden just before Christmas where they converted a sloping grassed garden into a 2 tier garden with a patio on the lower tier and a grassed area with a shed to match my house. Nubuild were hard workers and got the work done quickly and to a high standard and they cleared all the rubbish away. I would recommend Nubuild to all my friends and family on such an outstanding finish.

I was looking for a one stop building firm to build an extension onto my bungalow, replace a flat roof with a pitched roof, remove the chimney stack and fireplaces as well as remove a wall between the Dining and kitchen rooms. This also meant some plastering, plumbing and electrical work. I saw Nu build do some work locally and was pleased with their results so I asked them for a quote. Ray and Andy visited to discuss the project and any issues I had The written quote received was competitive and I therefore commissioned them. The extension was built towards the end of the summer and was completed faster than the 10 weeks planned. I was impressed by the efforts made to source stone and bricks to match the original building. Andy went out of his way to achieve this. The finish was further improved by removing part of the old walls to blend in the old to new stone and brick work. Ray and Andy project managed the work smoothly and had some excellent tradesmen on the project. They would text me updates of scheduled work and who was coming on what days. Brian and Padge have made the external appearance fit in very well and were a joy to watch transform the exterior of the building - from the Stone / brickwork to the roofing. Issues with missing lintels and damaged brickwork in old parts of the building were resolved by Padge, who always brought a smile to work whatever the weather. Plasterers Stuart and Sean were neat and tidy and the finish really nice with “straight and plumb” walls smoothly covered, and edges around the sockets neat. Interior joinery by Lee and Mark has also been to a high standard, with Lee offering solutions to problems arising from renovation work. Lee is also knowledgeable across other areas of trades which helped especially with the fitting of a new kitchen. The plumbing concerns were sorted by Mark and James, re siting the Boiler and renewing pipework, fitting radiators and Kitchen appliances. Checks and gas certificates issued on completion. Overall I am pleased with the way in which Nu Build have transformed and renovated my old Bungalow, overcoming some significant issues along the way. They have an excellent workforce who are skilful and all appear happy to do what they can for you to get the job done right. They have been respectful and obliging throughout. I would consider Ray and Andy’s Nu Build team for any future projects Many thanks to all the team Clive

Nu Build have just completed some ‘fairly’ major building work to our house. A couple of months ago we had new doors and windows fitted, the windows had been in for over twenty years and the lintels were original from the date of the house build, circa 1962. The window company had some problems as some of the lintels were crumbling, they had to be patched up as best as they could and that left us with potential structural problems. We contacted Nu build for a quote, Ray and Andy came to our house to look at the job. In all we had the lintels changed in the three largest rooms and the small bedroom. The project manager was Lee, who worked with two other guys to complete the work, they were professional, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and have done a fantastic job. There was a lot of mess and debris every day in the house and outside, the team made sure that everything was cleared so you could still live in the house while the work was going on. They had the correct equipment and expertise to complete the seven day project to the highest standard, if you have lintels that need removing you need to make sure you that the job is done correctly otherwise you run the risk of structural damage to your home. Ray was in touch with us throughout the job, the guys doing the work are a real asset and had years of experience in the building trade. We will certainly recommend Nu Build to family, friends and work colleagues. If we ever need any other work doing we will not hesitate to contact Nu Build.

just a quick note to say it has been a pleasure working with your building team, they have been efficient, quick and good at keeping the property clean throughout the build. I did say at the beginning I had a thing for cleanliness! The standard of work and finish is great. It was like Christmas every day coming back from work to see what had been taken away, added or changed. It was 12 weeks of Christmas gifts instead of 12 days of Christmas. I will be able to look back on my photos with pleasure taken throughout the building works. I have been using the new dining room and bedroom this last week and it has made a fantastic difference in my daily life due to the space and being able to enjoy the garden. I will soon be able to use my new office when the furniture arrives this Friday and cannot wait. Please pass on my thanks for a wonderful extension to all who have helped build it especially Brian, Mark, and Sean the plasterer who worked in 32 degree heat. Also Eddie the decorator who put in the finishing touches, some people I know I will not have met due to being at work. Lee, thanks for the lovely floor it is well fitted and feels brilliant to walk on the click vinyl. I know there were hiccups along the way but resolved, a sign of a good company, so thanks again Andrew, Ray and Lee.

We have just had our bathroom converted into a wet room. It looks amazing and is so much better for the family. I would highly recommend this company, they did a full days work every day. Turned up on time every day was polite, considerate and professional. Kept us informed all the time on what was happening each day. We are looking at future work been done by this company.
