We've been incredibly fortunate to have had Craig and his excellent team take on a major interior renovation project in our home - and execute it flawlessly. We cannot recommend CDL Builders highly enough, with appreciation for:

  1. Their high quality standards.
  2. Their reliability and dedication to the job.
  3. Their excellent project management, communication and flexibility.

The team were able to accommodate the challenges of the job with great skill and imagination. We had total confidence in their professionalism and expertise at every step. It was quite simply a pleasure to a pleasure to have them around. Thank you Craig and the whole team!

Craig and his team are unquestionably professional, friendly, highly skilled and above all, reliable and punctual.

Summary:

Repointing work for two chimneys. 

Comments:

Craig and John were absolutely fantastic.

Craig explained what work was to be done, gave us a full quote of all aspect of what was to be done and how long it would take to do. He kept us updated to when he would start the work and delivered the work well within his timescale. There was excellent communication from him. The work done looks fantastic. I understand why he is so busy. He is very approachable and professional. I do not see him nor John have many breaks. Hard workers

I would be using his service again

Review of recommended builders in Walton, Peterborough

Review Date:
8th June 2021

Summary:

They dismantled and disposed of our old conservatory and replaced it with a stunning single storey extension.  This included all electrical work, heating, new windows including a velux roof window, decorating and a new patio.

Comments:

I have no hesitation in recommending this company.

All work was done to the highest standard and a full itinerary and payment plan was given to us before commencement of the work to allow us to budget, plan our days and make our neighbours aware of any likely disruptions.  Craig and his team went above and beyond to make the experience as stress free as possible. They were always prompt, extremely reliable and nothing was too much trouble. Craig has very high standards and his team of tradesmen echo his work ethos.  

I am absolutely thrilled with the outcome and the additional space achieved.

Attached garage.

CDL carried out our kitchen extension a few years ago and this attached garage was to the same high standard.

Craig has a very good, well deserved reputation and works hard to keep it.

Excellent.

Summary:

  • Strip off front wall tiles and cladding
  • Break out inner blockwork
  • Tooth out existing brickwork
  • Insulate below the front windows and brick up
  • Shutter existing bay window opening
  • Clear out any debris left

Comments:

Craig visited us to discuss our plans for the front of our house. He made suggestions of the best brick we should use and was absolutely spot on with the colour match. Craig arrived promptly on the first day of work and was extremely neat and tidy. It's very clear that Craig takes pride in his work and company.

We would thoroughly recommend him and don' t think twice about contacting him.

Thanks Craig and your team.

Review of recommended builder in Market Deeping, Peterborough

Review Date:
26th November 2020

Summary:

  • Knock down and replace lean-to conservatory with a brick built utility room and WC, including replacing existing kitchen extension flat roof with tiled truss roof over both kitchen and new utility room
  • Built an extension on the other end of the bungalow with a tiled 'cut roof' to allow for a vaulted ceiling, including fitting of french doors, bespoke windows, internal bi-fold doors and plumbing and electrical work etc.
  • Adapting drainage to allow for new sinks, WC and provision of X2 new soakaways.

Comments:

Craig and his team were excellent from day one, they gave us confidence that we would get a great job done, which has proved to be the case. Craig's organisation was excellent throughout and without his forethought and planning I doubt the work would have been completed on time as it was, despite Covid!!  We were always kept informed about what was being done and any issues (along with solutions) so we were always up to date with progress.

The final building control inspection was completed today with no problems at all, as expected.

Our thanks to all of the team who were friendly, hard working, conscientious and skilled in their trades. We can definitely recommend CDL if you need a reliable builder!!

Comments:

Having read all the previous reviews we cannot add anything else but to say that we wholeheartedly agree with the things other people say about Craig and the team.

Review of recommended builder and landscaper in Peterborough

Review Date:
5th June 2020

Summary:

New sun room built plus associated landscaping.

Comments:

We are very happy with our new sun room and give CDL Builders 10 out of 10 for all attributes especially the excellent managing of this project. Craig and his friendly team clearly take pride in their work and regard customer satisfaction as a priority.   

We are particularly pleased with the quality and workmanship of our finished sun room and how well it fits into its new landscaping. Here safety, changing a step for a gradual slope, and practicality, raising the level of new lawn to meet path have been executed very neatly. We appreciate the care Craig and John took to preserve the existing plants and provide exactly how we wanted the room patio and garden to be.

We will definitely use Craig and his team again.
