Mike Cook, Saffron Walden
We instructed Woodgrove Contracts to build a larger architecturally designed extension to the rear of my property in Saffron Walden as well as totally refurbish the existing dwelling and convert the loft space into two bedrooms and a bathroom. Right from the start I knew I had made the right decision; Alex and his team are all very experienced builders with a positive can-do attitude. This build for me was a very precious, once in a lifetime project, I was constantly impressed by the skill, care and attention to detail of their work and in keeping to the agreed budget. I wish Alex and his team all the success in the future and cannot recommend them more highly!

Alexis Didier Serre, Crishall
During two years of planning and work, Alex and his team brought to life our very dilapidated, nearly 600-year-old barn. Alex worked with us, the conservation officer and planners to agree the best way to restore this ancient beauty. Alex totally understood the need to be sympathetic to the history and aesthetic of the building, communicating regularly in a calm and reassuring way, to ensure we all were fully aware of whatever stage of the restoration we were at. This also was reflected in all of the sub-contractors brought in to assist. Enormous care was taken to honour the building where it has stood for hundreds of years.  the work shows a deep pride and artisanal eye and this carries through to the plaster work, painting, electrics and bathroom fittings. Thank you Alex and your wonderful team!

Paul Beverley, Bishops Stortford
This is the second time we have used Woodgrove Contracts and would very happily use them again for any future building work. This time we embarked on a total house renovation and rear extension which obviously had its challenges as it was an older property and work commenced a few days before the Covid-19 lockdown. Even when supplies were difficult to source and labour scarce, the project went ahead smoothly. They were always happy to help and respond quickly to any questions or concerns, were very diligent and approachable. All the team working on our house were hard working, courteous and friendly. Alex and Joe are very skilled tradesmen with a lot of knowledge. I would highly recommend this firm.
