We would highly recommend Ralston Builders to anyone looking to have building work carried out. Our project consisted of a 2 storey extension, re-roof the existing property, change the internal layout of the existing property and to create a monoblock driveway. The team are hard working and trustworthy and take a great deal of pride in the standard of their work. The project was run smoothly from start to finish and we were delighted with the final product.

Review Comments
We had a single story 2 bed annexe extension completed with its own bathroom, kitchen and living areas, along with adjoining garage conversion giving shared utility room space and a new home office area to the main home. Design was completed by architects to an extremely high standard and executed brilliantly by Ralston Builders.

The complete experience was a joy from start to finish with in depth discussions up front with owner John ensuring client understanding in the process and design was assured from the very beginning. During the build process, all workmen were polite, friendly and extremely hard working, even through some of the worst winter weather imaginable, they soldiered on providing their most professional services as always. They never stopped and always took time to ensure the work areas were as tidy as can be at the end of each day. This extended to any of the specialist sub-contractors used (bricklayers and electricians) who were also highly skilled and it was obvious they all had an amazing working relationship and plenty of experience of working together as a fantastic team.

Discussions between builder and client were regular keeping information flow well up to date and any possible challenges or uncertainties when a typical minor build issue occurred, were dealt with so swiftly and diligently, it really was a joy to have such skilled and experienced people on hand to advise and inform on what was such a costly project for us, the client (our first ever building project!). Nothing was ever too much hassle and a few extras which developed during the build (such as installation of a Howdens kitchen!) were costed and executed so well.

We simply cannot rate these guys highly enough! If you are lucky to get a space in their jam packed calendar, then you really do have the best of the best. You will have no qualms if Ralston builders are on your project.

Ralston Builders built us a fourth bedroom with en-suite on top of an existing garage conversion. We were delighted with the end result and can’t fault anything during the build. We experienced delays purely due to covid but they worked around these delays and continually kept us up to date with progress. They worked additional hours to ensure the job was complete due to our baby arriving imminently. I believe Ralston went over and above what I ever expected of a builder, and would highly recommend for future work.

Would highly recommend Ralston builders to anyone looking for work to be carried out.

John and his team at Ralston builders were great to deal with from the offset. The quote was good, communication was good and the work completed has been to a very high standard. John has gave us some good advice and solutions to unforeseen issues that have arisen and overall I am very happy to recommend Ralston builders and will be using them again in the future.

We recently had a single storey extension with patio completed by Ralston builders. John, Lee, Ethan, Martin and the other traders used were fantastic. An extremely reliable, hard working conscientious team. They all took pride in their work, and ensured the quality of workmanship inside and out were of a high standard. We added on several items not included in the original build and John was very accommodating and ensured everything was completed within the time frame. John organised everything well in advance, kept us informed on a day to day basis which ensured the build was completed to our satisfaction and within a quicker time frame than which was expected. Highly recommend John and his team, Ralston builders are a well known family run reputable company, which proved we were right to trust our instincts to use a local trader.

I required building work on both my gardens and I picked Ralston builders to complete the job.
From start to finish They were unbelievably professional kept all areas clean and went above and beyond to complete a magnificent job.

I highly recommend Ralston builders for all building work and have recommended them to all my family and friends.

You will struggle to find a better building company!

A big thank you to John and Martin.

Neil

Very happy customer - thanks again Ralston Builders.

We had our old conservatory demolished and a new extension built. The old kitchen area was converted into a shower room with a toilet and the new extension is now a kitchen. They created a patio area outside the new kitchen.
The quality of work was to a very high standard. Any issues we had were quickly resolved as John and his team take pride in their work. The timescale given was accurate. We are extremely happy with all work and the guys were friendly and professional. John kept in regular contact and kept us up to date with progress and any problems he was having.
John kept any extras costs to a minimum and had lots of suggestions of what to do with our extension.
We would definitely recommend Ralston Builders because of their high standard of work, the cost and the brilliant team of craftsmen.

Demolish existing rear porch, build new extension to rear for new kitchen, create new opening into existing living room and alter existing kitchen to create new downstairs shower room.

The finished project is excellent, the new kitchen is beautiful and has completely transformed my house, the shower room is well finished and a great addition. I am very pleased with all aspects of the finished project. John runs a small team of very accomplished craftsman. John was open and upfront throughout keeping in regular contact and keeping me up to date with any problems they encountered and solutions. The problems were generally small and were not of their making (plumbing / drainage mainly) and the solutions were very fair, John worked hard to keep my costs down.

I struggled a bit with the mess when the works were on site but this was more down to my own lack of experience of home builds. John warned me from the outset that it would be untidy - I just did not realise how disruptive it would be, but once complete, cleaned and tidy the disruption was completely forgotten and the end product first class.

We had an internal chimney removed and some other more cosmetic work done. The work was done to a high standard with excellent communication throughout, particularly when weather required a change to the planned start date. Disruption in the house was inevitable but John and his team kept this to a minimum leaving us with less clearing up to do than expected.

We were pleased that we had used this company and would be happy to use again for any future work required.

Ralston Builders carried out a two storey extension to our property in 2017. From the start of the project John Wingate (the owner) was in regular communication (almost daily) raised any issues immediately and always had options available as possible solutions. He ensured that all work was carried out to the required standard and that the project was complete on time. From initial quotation for the work to the final completion, there were no additional or 'hidden costs', the only change in pricing was as a result of requests to make changes to the plans or upgrade certain fixtures or fittings. Overall, very happy with the work, excellent value for money.

John and Lee and the team at ralston builders have been excellent, from the start of the planning process through to the build, they have put in extra hours over and above at nights and weekends to ensure that my family got back into our home for Christmas. Always willing to listen to any ideas and able to give professional advice regarding changes. I would highly recommend Ralston builders to anyone who was contemplating an extension/ home improvements

I used John and his team on a large extension project at our home in Bridge of Weir. The job ran well and when the inevitable problems and issues happened (as they do on any project) they were sorted fairly. Very happy with the service.

I’m using Ralston Builders again on a project which starts this month, which speaks volumes.
