Richard and his team have just completed a rear storey extension, creation of a new bathroom and all associated works for us. From the outset (including drawing up plans and managing building regulations and requirements) it has been a pleasure to work with Richard’s company.
Throughout the project everyone was polite to us and considerate to our neighbours. They were also very careful about the security of our home and we were happy to leave them with our keys when we were absent. The quality of the work is outstanding. It was completed on time, within budget and we are delighted with the improvements that have been made. We would just suggest that you stock up on tea bags, green milk and chocolate biscuits to keep Darren and his colleagues going - they deserve it!
We have no hesitation in recommending Richard’s company to you.

wanted to have major interior works done on our house, including
removing a fireplace, capping a chimney, reworking lighting and
sockets, fitting new ceilings and flooring, major re-plastering,
fitting new internal and external doors, and installing fitted units.
Richard offered a service where he would manage all of these
different things for us.
he spent a lot of time understanding what we wanted, advising us
would work best, and preparing a thorough estimate. He was clear
about where he couldn’t give an accurate estimate, and why not.We
had all three downstairs rooms and one bedroom out of action at the
same time. It could easily have made for frayed tempers but Richard
and his team were a pleasure to have around. They arrived on time
every day, worked hard, consulted us fully as work progressed, and
cleared up every afternoon. We actually missed them when the work
was finished! Everything
was completed to a very high standard. There were even a couple of
occasions when something was good enough for us but not good enough
for Richard and his team!
really can’t recommend them too highly, and wouldn’t hesitate to
use them again.
and Jean Jeffcoate. I
am really pleased with my new bathroom. It was not an easy job as so
much needed to be done, but the result is beautiful, the standard of
work is excellent. The plumbers, Darren and Liam were fantastic. They
worked well and cleaned up after themselves every day. It was a
pleasure to have them working in the house. Thank you for all
your help with making sure that everything ran smoothly. Pat
have done a great deal of work for me over the past 8 months
transforming my out-dated bungalow into the attractive home it now
is. The work consisted of a complete new bathroom, new flooring ,
electrics, renovated kitchen, new fireplace and decorating etc. The
quality of the work is first class. The tradesmen who carried out the
work were excellent, friendly, cheerful, punctual and cleaned up
after themselves every day. It was a pleasure to have them in the
again and I will be in touch soon regarding the next round of works. Pat Hughes We would recommend R S
Aston Builders with no hesitation. Richard and his team completed a
very large project which involved knocking down and erecting new
walls and ceilings, installing a new kitchen, utility &
cloakroom, extensive electrical work and tiling the whole ground
floor, everything being finished to a very high standard. I was very
impressed with the way the team cleaned up at the end of each day and
how conscientious and considerate they all were - I would certainly
use them again. Thank you guys for all your hard work, we love our
Richard and Katherine
Many thanks for the
structural works you carried out in our kitchen. Your team were
pleasant, well-mannered, despite the difficulties encountered in
getting steel beam manoeuvred into the basement and the discovery of
a large concrete hearth resting atop the kitchen ceiling – not
something that was in the original plan! They were happy to keep us
informed and answer our questions. They treated our home with respect
and we were grateful for their clearing up operation at the end of a
long, dusty shift. The quoted price was sensible and there were no
hidden ‘extras’. We would happily recommend RS Aston Builders to
Quinten Taylor and
Tanya Kynaston, Reading. From
start to finish you offered us valuable advice and put us in touch
with great suppliers. Additionally you took all the stress out of
managing the job for us and project managed everything – we just
came home every day and marvelled at the progress. David
and I wanted to write to thank you and your whole team for your
excellent work in completely refurbishing our kitchen. Everything
from the large jobs such as removing the ceiling and putting a new
one up to the smallest detail was carefully managed and finished to
the highest standard by you and your friendly and efficient team. We
are delighted with the finished kitchen and just hope you will have
time to come back and do similar for our bathroom later in the year Rachel
and David. We needed a wall knocked through between the
kitchen and dining room, and part of the disused kitchen converted
into a cloakroom and cupboard area. Richard and his team completed on time and
within budget and the work looks exceptional, we are very pleased
with the result. With parents staying with us most of this time
they were very conscious that they kept noise and dust down to a
controlled level, and always tidied up after themselves. Additional works have been done which they
suggested, and this is all for the better as the job looks fantastic!
Once the kitchen is finished I'll post pictures
- R.S.Aston are highly recommended by us.
Sean and Tanya. We recently employed R.S Aston Builders to carry out
an entire kitchen refurbishment which we are extremely happy with.
Richard’s experience and knowledge was of great use to us and his
advice on certain areas such as design ideas, quality of products and
technical detail was very beneficial. The Team which work for Richard
were very, polite, respectful of our home, hoovering before leaving
daily, shoes removed when in other areas of the house, kitchen fully
cleaned on completion day. The job was completed on time and in full
to a very high standard.
we are so pleased and would highly recommend R.S.Aston builders to
and Andy. Purley-on-Thames. We employed RS Aston
Builders to completely gut and refurbish our kitchen. Our property is
just under 150 years old and the room’s layout, low ceiling and
lack of right angles provided a stern challenge. The work was fully
completed to a high standard and the finished kitchen looks brilliant and it has been much admired by our friends. All staff were
professional , reliable and respectful of our property, as well as
being happy to answer any questions we had. They were also flexible
to our requests for changes and extras as the job progressed. Also,
when a unit hinge failed after completion, it was replaced swiftly
and without fuss.
We would have no
hesitation in contacting them for future work and would recommend
them to others.
Quinten Taylor and
Tanya Kynaston. We
would have no hesitation in recommending Richard and his team for any
home project that you are considering. We have recently had 7
weeks of major work carried out, removal of a wall, structural beam,
gutting of kitchen, utility and down stairs bathroom, new radiators,
French patio doors, electrics, lighting, floor finishes, decorations
and some outside drainage work. As
I was new to all this, I didn't know where to start so Richard spent
a few visits with me planning the layout of the kitchen and bathroom.
I knew what I wanted but his advice on different styles, appliances
etc put my mind at rest that I had made the right choices prior to
the job starting. Now
our work has been completed we are delighted with the results, it is
even better than we had imagined. We love our new kitchen and
bathroom and many of my friends have commented on how good the
workmanship is. What
we thought was going to be quite an upheaval actually was not
(especially as we have a 3 year old). As I work part time, I
left the team my keys and they just got on with the job, I had
complete trust that my house was in good hands. The work was
carried out by Darren and James, both who are very nice guys and
extremely professional, with Richard and his Electricians completing
other elements of the job. Darren gave me advice on what tiles
to choose and what would look the best on my kitchen and bathroom
floors. Richard kept in contact with me daily so I was kept
well informed what was happening next and how things were going. I
always came home to find my house left in a tidy and safe way.
you Richard, Darren, James and the rest of your team.
and Steve, Banbury Gardens, Caversham.
a quick courtesy note to thank you for the fab job you've done for us
on various refurbishment works. Having
been badly let down by another 'reputable trader' (beware flashy
websites and posh sounding 'trade bodies' that aren't worth the paper
they are printed on), Richard and his team first sorted out the
serious water pressure problems we had been left with in our
bathroom. He then insulated our loft and sorted out further poor
workmanship in our office before installing a new laminated floor and
latest part was refurbishment of 3 bedrooms included installing new
ceilings and coving , installing 2 sets of sliding fitted wardrobes
and redecoration of 3 rooms. Richard was patient throughout and even
accommodated a last minute decision to add spotlights with less than
24 hours notice (sorry Richard!)
wife working away meant most meetings had to take place on weekends
or late evenings. This included a visit on his daughter’s birthday
to help us input measurements for the wardrobes. Being
a man who can just about screw in a light bulb, it's fantastic to have
found such a reliable tradesman and team and I rely totally on his
expertise including selecting other tradesman.
would have no hesitation. In recommending Richard and his team or any
of his sub contractors for anyone who wants a decent job with minimal
and Mrs Jeff Tilehurst. Mark, just a quick line
to thank you personally for a really excellent service over the
three planned days last week for the remedial work undertaken
within our apartment. The contractors you selected (R.S.Aston
Builders) were really excellent! Arrived on time, worked
very hard, good quality work, friendly and clean in clearing up etc.
Great job done. Please pass on our special thanks to Peter and
Darren. (Do not lose these guys!).
Once again, many thanks
Mark, and all at R.S.Aston Builders
Stuart & Ann
valued your sensible advice on components of the refurbishment work
and your overall design of a challenging kitchen layout. Your
knowledge, thought process and patience compared to some other
contractors and large high street retailers was outstanding. Your
team were friendly, polite, tidy and their workmanship was first
class. I would be happy to recommend your services to anyone.
thanks and kind regards,
are builders of perfection. From day one to completion and beyond
Richard and all his employees have been hardworking, courteous and
first class professionals. Their help and guidance have completely
changed my house into a perfect palace. I was kept up to date at all
times with regular meetings and telephone conversations. The
complements from neighbours and fellow trade professionals have not
stopped due to the highest standards of workmanship.
massive thank you to you all. Julie and George Vince. Richard and his
excellent team have recently carried out a full bathroom refit and
bedroom alteration, also some external work to improve insulation
etc. We are very pleased with the results, the standard of
workmanship is excellent, we had no “blank” days, the team
arrived promptly, cleared up each day, and were always cheerful, and
very willing to discuss details. I would unreservedly recommend the
firm to anyone looking to carry out improvements to their property. Dorothy and Peter.
