The first job was a pathway in York stone and he did a lovely job. Second was to put York stone on some steps and to waterproof the understairs cupboard. It looked great but leaked and the steps pooled water. To be fair, it was not his work but one of his workmen. He has been back a few times to remedy it but all solutions have failed and for the last 6 months he has stopped answering our calls. We like him and he can do really good quality work but we are just hugely frustrated that it is still wet.

Ardvark replaced some old rotten outdoor stairs and a fence. The new stairs are very sturdy and the new fence has really tidied things up. When I wasn't happy with anything Tony would be sure to find out what I wanted and fix it. The job was finished slightly over time, but still on budget and we're very happy with the results!

Tony, Colin and the team have been outstanding. The work we needed doing required professional tradesmen and that's what we got with Aardvark. They not only fixed the crack, but found the cause as well and fixed that. They went the extra yard on each element of the job. The brickwork, pointing and plastering are all flawless. Highly recommended, would use again in an instant.

Tony and Sam did a great job in repairing our rickety staircase. We didn't realise quite how rickety until we pulled up the rotten treads and found the staircase virtually all the support gone. Undaunted, Tony and Sam fixed it up well, using good quality hardwood where needed. Even though it was more work than they thought they stuck to their quote which is great. While on site, they also installed our catflap in a thick brick wall. Nicely done though they didn't quite follow my requests to centre it with the window and ensure it could be removed by unscrewing it of we needed to. Still, it looks good. Thanks guys!

Tony and his team have done a great job. He is very clear when saying how he proposed to do the job - not over-complicating things. He's an easy bloke to get on with and so are his boys. I would like to commend the plasterer Colin who Tony brought in to finish the wall. the old house is quite wonky in places and he managed to make the everything straight and smooth. We have got Ardvark to other jobs that we have been putting off.

In our experience Tony was unrealiable. We selected Tony based on his good reviews. Sadly our experience was totally different from expectations as Tony proved to wholly unreliable. Initially Tony was keen to do the job but then failed to turn up on the appointed day. Moreover he did not call to inform us and did not answer our repeated calls. Both my husband and I were very late for work having waited in vain for Tony to arrive. Tony eventually answered his phone (not the mobile he gave us, but the second number that is on the website) around lunchtime on the day of the job and he said he forgot about the job. He offered to reschedule. We tried to do that however he did not return our calls, nor did he reply to our SMS message. Eventually he responded to our email via this website and said was fully booked so he could not take the job anymore. We have now been delayed by two weeks and have difficulty comprehending why Tony showed such poor customer care.

Tony and Sam did a brilliant job. They were thorough and professional. It was really appreciated that Tony came round on New Years day to give us a quote. Our stonework above the frontdoor needed urgent repair and I was so grateful that they came round so quickly to sort it out, particularly as my partner was 8.5 months pregnant at the time. I would highly recommend Ardvark to anyone.

Tony and Ben were both very lovely. They were punctual, polite, easy to get hold of and did a good job. I will certainly use them again if I need any other work done.

We moved to a new area and found Ardvark on Rated People. Tony's company Ardvark turned out to be the best decision we ever made. The team from the outset made us feel comfortable with knowledge and know-how. Ardvark did an excellent job for us removing our chimney breast, making a thru lounge, full electric rewiring and plastering / skimming walls along with an endless list of other jobs. All the work was done to a brilliant standard. Ardvark are reliable, friendly and extremly helpful. He took us thru the local authority rules and regs and worked with the building inspectors tirelesly thru out the renovation works. More than happy with all the work and will always use them for anywork we have planned for the future!!!!! His years of experiance is invaluable in this era and all the extra advice he gave to us was much appreciated. Thank-you Tony

I have been absolutely, totally impressed by ardvark from beginning to end. From the first contact Tony was helpful and polite, speedy and with great communication. His workers were ultra polite and kept us informed of every step of the work they were doing for us. They left the site exactly as they had found it, and even put protection over our carpets, walls, etc so they stayed totally clean and perfect. The only way I knew they'd been was that they had fixed my stairs perfectly. Would TOTALLY RECOMMEND Ardvark to anyone needing building work done. The most professional building company i have ever dealt with. Prices extremely competitive too. 15 out of 10 from me.
