Repairing and levelling concrete floor, and fitting new weather bar at back door, in preparation for having new flooring fitted. Very pleased with every aspect of the service and the work. Communications and time-keeping excellent, very good problem-solving when required, high quality technical skills and workmanship. Very professional in every respect, including friendliness and customer service. Overall, the best experience we have ever had of working with a tradesman. Based on our experience, would have no hesitation in recommending.

William built a base for a greenhouse for me. Despite being very busy, he managed to fit it in along other and larger jobs. Communication was good and prompt all the way through and the end result is faultless. Would highly recommend this company.

Review Comments
Work to rear of house included complete strip, reduced levels, retaining wall & step access, surface water drainage (including repairs to existing before tie-in), slabbed patio areas and retaining neighbouring perimeter ground with sleepers.
Work to side of house included complete strip to levels, surface water drainage (for neighbours run-off !!) and hardstanding with slabbed path.
Works to front included complete strip, formation of paved area and tie-in with existing driveway which included altering a MH finished level.

William visited several times to view, discuss and make recommendations, budget, quote and plan the works. The works were not 100% defined at the start, but William come up with solutions on the job (and off it !!) always keeping me advised and agreeing in advance.

William will not cut corners or compromise the quality of work carried out, so if you want a cheap job of questionable quality then he is not your man (and he wouldn't do the work anyway).

Highly recommended

William installed a drain in an area of patio which was prone to flooding. He did an excellent job and was careful to minimise mess. Although the drain hasn’t been tested yet I’m confident that it’ll be a big improvement and will make it much easier for me to keep the area clean.
William responded quickly to my initial enquiry and kept in touch in the run up to the work being done. All in all, I’m very happy with the job and would recommend his company.

Renovating a garden fence. Rotten posts were dug out and replaced. We wanted to lower the fence so large trellis panels cut down and reused. William was very prompt to respond to the enquiry, provided a clear quotation and arrived on schedule for the job. He came up with good ideas for dealing with things like the slope and making use of the old material.
He and his assistant arrived at 8.30 every morning and worked steadily despite the cold wet weather. They did a neat job and were careful not to damage the plants in the garden.

Excellent quality and also preparation for the job in discussing options, potential issues, problem solving on the job, etc. Will use again for larger building renovation work required.

I met William by chance while he was laying a block paving drive for a neighbour. I asked if he'd be willing to quote for our job to address various aspects of hard landscaping in our back garden including leveling soil prior to re-turfing, facing some slope retaining planters and re- laying a slate path and patio area after sorting some drainage snags.
He arrived to scope the site (on a Sunday) at the agreed time and date and spent a considerable time listening to my ideas and contributed many of his own. After a thorough measure of the site he said he'd be in touch with a quote in short order. I have to say I was immediately struck by the clarity and detail of the proposed works and the itemised cost for each. Once we agreed on the proposal and a start date it was a relief to have William on site. He clearly knows everything there is to know about drainage, levels, materials and finish. He is fastidious in every aspect of his work. He brings a level of confidence to a project I have never experienced with anyone else and he is genuinely a thoroughly decent person. I cannot recommend Ravenswood highly enough.

William relayed and pointed my patio steps that lead up into my garden with new stone. Quality of work was excellent, as was his communication before and during the job. Very knowledgeable guy and very nice to deal with. Would be happy to recommend for any paving jobs.

William designed and constructed a platform for a deck in front of our newly installed garden room.
He grasped the brief immediately and after consultation came up with a great solution.
Will be using again next year.

Ravenswood have installed the Foundations, drainage, services and slab for us on site and it has all been done to a very high standard. Extremely happy with the end result and the site has been immaculate throughout the build.

Willie and his team were professional, friendly and reliable. They turned up in any weather and worked hard to bring the job in on time and on budget. Excellent value for money and we will be both using them again and recommending them to others.

Digging track to lay underground cables to out house building. Lifting clients pathways and reinstating when job was finished. Very tidy when completed and during the works being done. Quick assessment of whats required to complete the works.
