Barrie Causon has worked twice for my family with excellent results.
In 2016 he built a full height extension for my daughter and son in law in Hurst Green, Surrey comprising an additional bedroom, bathroom, family room, cloakroom and an extended kitchen and hallway. A major project increasing effective incremental living space in a two bed traditionally built home by an excess of 50%.
In 2017/18 he demolished an existing conservatory at my stone built Edwardian house in Limpsfield, Surrey constructing a new base and all building works necessary to enable the erection of a far larger 450sq ft Orangery by David Salisbury. Critical requirements of this build were to:-
Sympathetically match modern building materials to an Arts & Crafts house constructed of Portland Stone and handmade bricks.
Constructing two permanent archways between the house and orangery that required specialist stone masonry skills.
Very accurate final dimensions of all brickwork to match the very exact requirements of the new orangery.
Barrie and his team are easy to work with, highly attentive to the needs of the customer (cleanliness, consideration for neighbours, in particular safety as we had very young children present throughout) and work well with other trades who are on site. Their work is of the highest standard, Barrie was particularly attentive to all aspects of the job including areas outside his own responsibilities, an aspect that I found particularly valuable.
I have no hesitation in recommending Barrie Causon for similar or possibly larger building projects and would certainly use Eden Valley Builders again
Barrie has delivered 3 projects for me in the last 6 years. The first in 2011/12 was a major top to bottom wholesale renovation and modernisation of my house, including conversion of the loft into two new bedrooms and a shower room. This job went extremely well and I was very pleased with Barrie’s work. I have subsequently used Barrie to re-model and modernise a buy to let property in Lingfield. And most recently add a stunning new dining room to our house. Barrie’s team always work hard and deliver a good product. I’d be happy to recommend him.
We are delighted with our extension by Eden Valley Builders and thoroughly recommend them to others. The work was completed to a very high standard by Barrie and his experienced team. Billing was prompt and detailed and any delays in the work were due to outside contractors engaged by ourselves. Barrie acted as project manager, liaising with planners , engineers and others. Three years later we have had no problems and other professionals in the building trade have been impressed by the quality of the work.
