Review Comments
Kevin and his team at The Ridge Foundation have renovated two unusual cabins at our self-catering holiday accommodation site. The cabins were pretty dilapidated when The Ridge Foundation started out - rotten cladding, rotten support posts in places, broken decking, rotten stairs, a shot roof, not a 90-degree angle anywhere, sloping walls, knackered windows, straw insulation etc. Both cabins were basic, to say the least. However, the team could see the potential in these quirky, one-off structures, and had the vision to figure out how to renew without losing any of the original character of the buildings. They used new materials which complemented the old, and have given both buildings an incredible update in terms of integrity and style, and a huge upgrade in terms of comfort. The work has been extensive, imaginative, high quality and always with an eye on budget.

The fact that this organisation is also "doing good" as a social enterprise, supporting its community through excellent employment opportunities is an added bonus of working with them. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend the team at The Ridge and we are already considering future projects with them.

Prepare and over paint external wooden sheds.

Very slight delay in starting work. Once started the job ran continuously until complete.

Workmen were courteous and obliging.

Finished job is more than satisfactory.

The guys have transformed Old St Andrews Kirk in North Berwick. In the past there had been some very poor work on the building and they undid all that and re-pointed and gave it a limewash much more in keeping with the original type of colouring that would have been there when it was built. The site was always kept very tidy and everyone on site was extremely friendly and professional.

A new door lintel was installed for an outside doorway. Advice on the type needed was given which was excellent as I was unsure.

All woodwork around the door was also carefully removed and replaced as it was rotten. Work was rendered and left looking very neat and well done.

Good communication throughout. Definitely recommend and use again. I especially liked it was giving young people an opportunity to learn on the job and my payment would assist the project going forward.

After our dog brought down one of our garden walls we asked a few builders and stonemasons for quotes. We then remembered that we had seen the Ridge rebuilding the stone wall by their new garden in Dunbar and thought we'd ask if it's a piece of work they would undertake.

They replied promptly and said they could do the work and their stonemason came out with one of the apprentices. Their knowledge was excellent and the repair work they have done is amazing. I'd happily recommend them. It's great to offer the work to a local enterprise that is also providing opportunities to young people.

Re-pointing of existing stone wall and building of a new stone pillar, using reclaimed sandstone. The workmanship of the newly built pillar was excellent.

Repairing stonework around doorway and draughtproofing door.

Work done ahead of schedule and to a very high standard. The final invoice was for less than the original quote. We were very pleased and would be happy to recommend them to other customers.

This trader was used to strip the concrete render off a gable wall which was suffering from significant internal damp. The external stonework was indeed very damp, and removing the occlusive render was clearly the right thing. The stonework has been attended to, repointed, and limewashed. The final effect is excellent. The work was done efficiently and all the mess was cleared up efficiently at the end. Excellent value for money and efficient and effective workmanship.
