What our customers say about us

Jane Gallacher
The workman who did the job was so polite and courteous and never assumed anything, he always asked before doing anything.
neil bouette
Tom and his team are excellent to work with - great fun, kind, careful, and willing to go the extra mile to make things right. They understood the vision for our unique project and added their own ideas to make it special. They gave a clear quote that they stuck to. The few extras that did arise were agreed in a fair and open way. The team worked around any challenges quickly and provided innovative solutions. I felt I had their full attention and no problem was too tricky. The smart technology they installed along with air-source heat pump and AC has given an extra dimension. The quality of the final build was great, both inside features and the stonework outside. I enjoyed working with Tom and would highly recommend Alco.
Elspeth O'donnell
A difficult job working between 2 flats but the men were very considerate and lined up each trade as the jobs progressed. This was the second major work ALCO had done for us, and I would use them again.
David Woodman
Choosing Alco to work on a recent refurbishment was one of the best decisions we made for quite some time. Although I’m a keen DIYer I knew that knocking new doorways in load-bearing walls needed professional expertise. Alco certainly have that & the other work, a new partition wall & replacement coving to match the original Victorian coving was excellent. The men were highly professional & a pleasure to work with. We have other refurbishment projects in the pipeline & wouldn’t dream of using any other builders.
Ben Knight
We undertook a very extensive, root-and-branch development of house in 2017 for which Tom and his team took on and managed from beginning to end. In around 14 weeks they completely stripped back and rebuilt our home from top to bottom including completely replacing all plumbing and wiring, knocking through structural wall (involving the lagest RSJ i've ever seen), tanking one area of the house, a new dormer, removing and replacing the staircase in a new configuration, building a garage, re-configuring every floor, up to all the decorative work. Across this time we had almost no friction at all with Tom or his team (which is amazing given the scope and significance of this project to us) and Tom was a thoughtful guide who not only delivered the work excellently but also pro-actively encouraged us to consider elements to optimise the build to the point that, 4 years later, we wouldn't change a thing about the way we did it. Tom and the Alco team have many great qualities but the 2 that stand out most to us is the energy with which they attacked the build - we often had 7 or 8 different trades on site working to complete the work on schedule, and Tom's wonderful attention to detail which ensured the highest level of finish (on one occasions i found Tom himself changing the screws in a set of door hinges so they all matched - something i would never have even noticed). Alco are an extremely safe pair of hands for any project - I can't recommend them highly enough

Tom and his team are professional and thorough, good service at a fair price. What you want and need from people working on your home
Rachael Balls
Lee Graffham
Couldn’t recommend ALCO more highly, helped me and my wife to extend and create our home in Witley sticking to our budget and to a high quality finish. Tom and his staff are hard workers, friendly and never once phased bye any issues or alterations to our build during or after completion. Have since recommended ALCO to friends and family after our good experience of working with them and will continue to do so in the future too, thank you Tom and all the staff at ALCO.
Rebecca Crosweller
ALCO did a fantastic and most professional job on our project from start to finish. It was a complex build with lots of unknowns owing to the age of the property, but the team were creative and proactive throughout. We really felt like we got to know everyone well, and that's because Tom and his team are so personable and take such pride in their work. Highly recommend!
Volodymyr Bochkor
