...The complete building service

Start 2 Finish pride ourselves on our quality work and customer relations. We endeavour to do our utmost to provide our clients with the best service possible, any feedback is greatly appreciated as it helps us to improve all aspects of our work. Below you'll find just a few of our happy customers and their experiences with Start 2 Finish.

      Adrian, Dan, Anthony and the rest of the team from Start2Finish have reworked the downstairs of our house, including building an extension to accommodate a new kitchen. We are delighted that we chose Start2Finish – both the finished job, and the experience of having the work done have exceeded our expectations!
      We were quite particular in our requirements, so it was a pleasure to work with a company with such attention to detail, and who work to such a high standard. Adrian kept us fully informed throughout, and the team provided valuable input and ideas that resulted in many aspects being better thought through than would otherwise have been the case. Throughout the work, the team were always careful to minimize disruption to us, and to ensure that everything was left clean and tidy. Despite the size of the job, Adrian’s initial quote and timescale proved accurate.

      The outcome of the work is a fantastic living space, finished to a very high standard. Entrusting work of this scale to a particular company is a big decision – we made the right choice! We would not hesitate to recommend Start2Finish to others.

      Start 2 Finish handled all aspects of our kitchen project. This included removing a wall, bricking up doors and installing a window, floor tiling and fitting cabinets.

      We are both over the moon with results and believe the kitchen has been transformed from something rather drab and impractical to what is now the outstanding feature of the house.

      Adrian and Anthony both impressed us with the extent to which they took pride in their work all of which was completed to a very high standard. Nothing was too much trouble and Adrian was happy to share his experience if he felt we were in danger of making wrong decisions - even down to colour schemes for the walls.


      The final bill was in line with the upfront quotation and we would not hesitate to recommend Start 2 Finish to anyone considering similar projects.

Garage Build

       What a fab garage the boys have built for me, they bent over backwards to give me the garage i wanted. Dan and Adrian were very professional, courteous and helpful at all times.
I was very keen to have it finished to a timescale, the boys worked overtime to make this happen. The garage has had many admiring glances and is the smartest on the avenue !! Thankyou very much Start 2 Finish. 

We are thrilled with our kitchen and wanted to write and thank everybody involved for their hard work and commitment in delivering such a stunning result.  It is now a great space to work, entertain or simply spend time in.
      We had spent quite a bit of time beforehand looking around and seeing what was on the market.  Wisteria stood out for us in their flexibility, quality of units and their commitment to achieving what we wanted: make the most of the river view, maximise storage and improve workflow. Sam helped us achieve that and more!
      Through Wisteria's connections, Start 2 Finish; the building works, electrics and kitchen installation became a single project.  Adrian and Anthony were fantastic and although (we are delighted everything is finished now) we genuinely miss them.  Nothing seemed too much trouble and the quality of their workmanship was excellent.


Thanks again and we would definitely recommend all parties.

                                                                       All the very best, Carolyn and Paul

     Start 2 Finish recently installed our new fitted kitchen. They started by demolishing a wall to create a new modern tiled space and then installed the units with care and attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble and the end result was exactly as we planned finished on time and within budget. We would not hesitate to recommend them.

                "Adrian gave me a fixed quote for plastering seven rooms in an old Victorian house in April of 2012. As you may know old houses are not the easiest projects to work on. He was very approachable and gave me some advice of some simple preparations i could do to keep the price down. The work took a week to complete which was right on schedule and has transformed the place. I was delighted with the quality of the finish (i decided to paint the walls instead of wall paper because the finish was superb) and he never swayed from the quote. He is an honest, hard working, clean and tidy professional builder (which is hard to find) and i will definitely get him back to do more work in the future".

     Following the installation of our kitchen we asked Start to Finish to paper and  decorate our hall and stairs in our absence. We returned to clean and tidy house and a job finished to perfection.
Kitchen & Utility Room
   Start to Finish renovated our dated utility room by installing new units and flooring. A clean and functional space now complements our kitchen.
    Start 2 Finish have been excellent from the outset in understanding what we wanted. They completed the whole build on target and Dan works to the highest standard, ensuring we were happy with every step of the build.
We look forward to working with them in the future on other projects.

      Very happy with the work done they were quick tidy and efficient would use again.
      Bathroom and toilet knocked into one, installed shower unit, toilet and basin, fitted into vanity unit. First class job from start2finish.


        Daniel and Adrian have just completed a total upgrade of my kitchen, replastering my ceiling and walls, fitting new flooring, new units and worktops with sink and taps. All aspects of the work were done to a standard well above normal expectations , nothing but perfection was accepted by them regardless of the extra time it took. Their designer Sam was also of the same nature and his designs were clear, precise and available to me within 24hrs both in 2D and 3D presentations. In addition to the designs Sam supplied the units and tiles all of which wer of high specification and very competively priced. As a team they are superb and I recomend them to anyone.

         Adrian and Dan did a fine job. I have no hesitation in recommending them. If they had delays or problems they contacted me promptly. We had a helpful dialogue when changes or alterations to plans were made, offering sound advice.

        Start 2 Finish lived up to their name, giving us a good range of styles to choose from, supplied by Wisteria Kitchens, with Adam making valuable suggestions to add to our plan. Adrian did the bulk of the job and you could not have wished for a more hard-working, co-operative and considerate worker. He overcame various problems in the plumbing and rationalised the mess of pipes at the inlets, producing a far more economical use of space. It was all done in good time with minimal disruption and mess and for an exceptionally reasonable price. They take pride in their work and are also concerned for the after-sale service. We were particularly thankful to Sam at Wisteria for helping us with a dispute over a defective hob. We initially had the units installed, wall tiled and ceiling painted and then engaged Adrian and Dan again to fit the floor we chose. It all looks as we had hoped with an excellent quality finish. We can thoroughly recommend them. In closing I would just say that Adrian and Dan are really nice guys and a pleasure to have around the house.

Thoroughly recommend these chaps. First class workmanship and reliability. Very pleased.


             "Adrian and Daniel at Start 2 Finish provided a high quality bespoke fitting service for our kitchen. They assisted in every aspect; even re-ordering items that were delivered damaged or which i had forgotten to purchase. My wife and i are very pleased with the finished result and, as a chartered architect working on many major building projects, i am hard to please! In terms of the budget, we employed them on a day rate which was perfectly satisfactory for the level of skill that they brought to the project. i am a firm believer in the old adage that "you get what you pay for". As regards to the timescales they kept me constantly informed as to the anticipated completion date and advised us honestly when delays occurred. These delays were not of their making and in one instance they worked late to repair a ceiling which was found to be water-damaged from before we bought the house. We greatly appreciated them going the extra mile to help us get the kitchen we have dreamed of. Start 2 Finish exceeded our expectations and i fully intend to use them again in the future".         

Kitchen re-fit

               "Daniel and Adrian have just completed a total upgrade of my kitchen re-plastering my ceiling and walls, fitting new flooring, new units, worktops with sink and taps, all to a standard well above normal expectations. Nothing but perfection was expected by them, regardless of extra time it took. Their designer, Sam, was also of the same nature and his designs were clear and precise and available to me within 24 hours both in 2D and 3D presentation. In addition to the designs, Sam supplied the units and tiles, all of which were of high specification and very competitively priced. As a team they are superb and i highly recommend".

Painting and Kitchen fitting.

                 "Adrian and his team provided an excellent all round service from quote to completion. Great value for money was accompanied by a marvelously   skilled job completed with minimum fuss in very good time. The quoting process was very helpful as Adrian both suggested areas where work could be done differently as well as areas that maybe weren't necessary to achieve the best possible end result. This enabled a clearer picture from the outset well as accompanying his detailed quote. The work was started soon after acceptance and deliveries (new kitchen) received and signed for which was enormously helpful. We were regularly updated on his progress and jobs outside the scope of the quote highlighted for our agreement as they went along. The finished result is excellent and i would recommend Adrian and his team at Start 2 Finish to anyone requiring building work in the south west.

                Our conclusions were great value, honest, accomplished excellent communication throughout, fantastic finish and helpful throughout the process".

Bathroom Re-model

             "Adrian and Dan did a fine job. I have no hesitation in recommending them. If they had delays or problems they contacted me promptly. We had a helpful dialogue when changes or alterations to plans were made, offering sound advice".

        We feel like we have a new home just as we imagined it when we brought it.

The Shower room is very luxurious and the Kitchen is more than we expected, the Utility is just what we needed to make this little house work for our needs. We love our stair well lights they make a 1980’s house into a contemporary home and the decoration is just as requested.

We cannot praise the work enough and would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone who asks.

We would also like to say that Anthony is an asset to your firm and he has worked like a trooper during this renovation.
