Imagine a builder who turns up when he says he will, very rapidly grasps what is needed and the shortest route to achieving it, works at double pace to most, cleans up, finishes the job on time and doesn’t overcharge. Oh, and smart, amiable and 100% trustworthy to boot. I was lucky enough to meet just such a builder/carpenter (Simon Hyde) when we moved to the area nearly 15 years ago and since when have always had Simon lead on projects to renovate our house- notably major extensions to the loft and side of the house as well as many smaller works. Simon’s extensive network with all the local trades means that we haven’t sat around waiting for plasterers, plumbers, bricklayers, roofers etc but they have been efficiently brought in when required whilst Simon worked on and led the project on site. In fact for the large projects we chose to move out and handed him the keys with no hesitation. Work started the day we left and was completed by the time we returned. An outstandingly professional job that gives real value for money is always delivered. Thanks Simon.

We had Simon recommended to us by a bricklayer when we needed a stud wall building. Since then he has built a kitchen, stair rails, reskirted our hall and is about to start removing and rebuilding our en-suite. Simon is very professional, honest, and always does what he says, he has never let us down and always turns up when he says he is going to. Simon always gives good advice and will not take the expensive option if it is not needed. If he cannot do a job he will know someone who can, and will not recommend them if they do not work to his standards.
