“We had used Coleman Building Company to extend our previous house and were very happy to have them build a brick carport, an extension to the rear of our new house and new steps and paving. James and his men were easy to get on with and did an excellent job with minimal disruption. The car port looks as though it has always been there and the extension blends in really well. We are very happy to recommend them.”
“While this was a small job – creating a new window to match other windows in a listed barn – it was done with a great deal of care and expertise; also the work started as planned and took no longer than the estimated time allocated for it.”
“In 2014 we decided to demolish the bungalow in which we were living and build a new house in its place. We went through a tendering process involving three building companies and chose Coleman’s for the job, not only because they offered a competitive price but also because we thought James and his Team would be good to work with. We have recently completed the project, and are very happy with the choice we made back then as Coleman’s delivered on all counts. The project was completed on time, on budget, and to a excellent level of finish. We were particularly impressed with how proactive Coleman’s were in bringing ideas to the table for how to reduce costs where possible, allowing us to invest more in areas that were important to us. We were also pleased with the quality and friendliness of their staff, especially the site foreman Kevin who was always very attentive. We can definitely recommend them.”
“We were looking for a very modern extension to an Edwardian semi to open up the rear of the house and enjoy the views of the South Downs. We were introduced to Colemans by the architect. They offered a competitive price and good testimonials. We selected them from the tenders and were not disappointed. The build was high spec and needed high quality precision builders and that is what we got through Colemans.They were highly reliable, personable and good communicators and we have a great build as a consequence. Post completion they have also been good in seeing to snagging items.I would not hesitate to recommend them.”
“Having worked on properties for us over the past 35 years, we were delighted to get Coleman Building Company involved in work on our current house. We had always had the pleasure of working with Philip Coleman but on our recent project of adding a conservatory we had the great pleasure of working with his Son, James. It is wonderful to see how a family business is thriving and with skills and knowledge being passed on. Younger members of the team are obviously being taught the skills they will need to become craftsmen themselves and that is very important for all concerned. Everyone who either works for the business or who is brought in to carry out specific tasks carries out their work to the highest of standards and nothing is too much trouble for them. The whole process has been co-ordinated with great thought and care and has taken into account our needs and requirements at all stages. This was especially true in the initial stages when the groundworks team prepared the site and began work. Any fears of upheaval I had were quickly alleviated and I began to really enjoy watching the work take place and providing refreshments for the workforce. Long tea/lunch breaks or smoking breaks are not taken by any of the team, instead they carry on working whether it be in the heat of summer or on a rainy day.
Whilst there is the sheer joy of spending time in our wonderful new space, there is the sadness that the team will no longer be here. Would I employ Coleman’s again? Yes, without a doubt. Would I recommend them to others? Definitely. If you have a project in mind I would wholeheartedly recommend you speak to James because you are unlikely to get a better team to work with.”
“We employed Coleman Builders to renovate and extend a small, dilapidated bungalow in a Conservation area. Access to the site was a challenge and the requirement to maintain parts of the existing structure made development difficult, however nothing phased James and his amazing team. The project was delivered on time and on budget and we were kept informed of any changes on a daily basis. All the staff were polite, trustworthy and reliable and our site foreman Kevin was outstanding. Our grateful thanks to all involved. Our completed home is a delight and has been built to a very high standard. James was very knowledgeable and provided solutions to the various problems that emerged during the build. He worked closely with us at all times, making the project a much less stressful experience than we had initially imagined. We cannot recommend this company highly enough and would be more than happy to speak with anyone considering engaging Colemans for their own project.”
