Kitchen Extension

"Arundel & South Downs Renovations have undertaken various building projects for me over a number of years. These include a large kitchen, dining room and utility room extension and extensive alterations to the first floor layout of our house – to include installation of a new staircase to the loft".


"Andy, Keith and their team have a wealth of experience as well as excellent contacts and suppliers enabling them to come up with good, practical, sensible and cost effective solutions.  They are good to deal with and their team are polite and courteous - which is particularly important when they are working in your home.  I would have no hesitation in recommending them".

"I employed A&SD Renovations in the spring of 2012 to build a small single storey tiled roof extension to my bungalow.  The work comprised an external toilet and shower room that links to the master bedroom".

 

"Throughout the project the work was carried out in an efficient manner and all the staff were pleasant to deal with.  Workmanship was of a high standard and I am thrilled with the result.  The extension matches perfectly with the existing building.  You would be hard pressed to know that it wasn’t original.  I would have no hesitation in using them again".   

Adrian Biggs, Stonehurst Road,Worthing

"As the owner of a grade 2 listed property in Arundel, I am acutely aware of the need to preserve the character and integrity of my house.
In 2005 I commenced an extensive renovation, phased over four years. Before I started, I asked Cluttons if they could recommend a reliable builder who charged sensible prices. They came up with two - one of whom was Andy Ayling".

 

"As soon as I met Andy, I felt that he was a person I could relate to. He is friendly and polite - and above all, professional. The work his firm carried out went smoothly and was delivered on time and within budget. It consisted of :-

1. Stripping out a large bathroom and creating from it a smaller bathroom and an en suite shower room with a wash hand basin and W.C.
2. Demolishing a wall between the kitchen and the dining room, installing a steel joist, installing  new kitchen cabinets and a new central heating boiler and installing new lighting.
3. Installing a new cloakroom suite.
4. Completely stripping out the sitting room and replastering all walls, installing new lighting and constructing a display cabinet to match one already in situ.
5. Redecorating throughout.
6. Widening the entrance to the garage.
7. Hard landscaping the garden including paving, trellis work, decking and lighting".

 

"All Planning, Listed Building and Building Regulation consents were obtained and the standard of workmanship was very acceptable. and within the constraints and the age of the building. Andy has subsequently helped out on numerous occasions, fixing the odd leak, repairing gutters etc. etc. - usually at the drop of a hat".

"Arundel and South Downs Renovations have carried out a variety of construction, repair and general work at Lavant House Stables, always with pleasing results. It is a relief to find a construction company who are efficient, punctual, tidy, are environmentally aware and importantly satisfy our exacting standards".

"No job is too small or large or too unusual - 2012 for example this company cleared an overgrown woodland path, re-designed and installed a more efficient drainage system, constructed a new entrance and driveway for the business and created a cost-effective way of building and securing cross country jumps for the horses. We have and will continue to recommend this established company who have consistenly produced quality results".

“Andy Ayling and his team have done many construction and renovation jobs for us in recent years, some very substantial, some quite modest. Their work and finish is of a  high quality and their attention to period detail is particularly good and welcome. We have always enjoyed working with them and would always consider them first for similar jobs in the future”.

Daniel Hodson, Arundel.

"Being new to the area, Andy Ayling and his team were recommended to me as suitable builders for my complete kitchen/diner refurbishment. From the process of quoting right through to completion, he and his team of tradesmen delivered attention to detail and quality workmanship. They have subsequently done other work throughout my home and I would endorse their experience and professionalism. They would be my first point of call for future projects".
