Testimonial – Hawkinge house extension, garage combined into lounge and rear extension

I chose HGT to carry out a major refurbishment of my property not because their quote was the cheapest, although it was very competitive, but because John took the time to listen to what I wanted to achieve and considered my requirements carefully.  Inevitably, as the build progressed, unforeseen issues requiring further work came to light and after discussion of the situation John always came up with a solution and a fair price for the additional works.  Similarly if I wished to make changes John was not only very helpful in effecting the changes but also pro-active in making suggestions as he was totally in-tune with my end goal.  On the very rare occasions that something was not done quite to instructions or my satisfaction John ensured that it was re-done.  We established an excellent working relationship of mutual respect which was very important to me, a single lady, and I can honestly say that I am delighted with the finished job.  Furthermore, and very importantly, John is highly reliable and he and his workers were always on-site when expected but on the few occasions that they were unable to be there John always contacted me to inform me of this and they always returned the following day to continue the work.  The build took some months to complete and John always respected the scheduled site meetings as well as meeting with me on an “ad hoc” basis whenever necessary.  I can sincerely say that I would recommend HGT to anyone who has building needs no matter how large or small as the job will be done to the client’s satisfaction and within the agreed time limits.
