“They were extremely proactive in communicating with us and keeping us updated with the progress”

We have just built a new house with Fogden Builders.  We found Daniel and Michelle very professional and helpful throughout the duration of our project. They were extremely proactive in communicating with us and keeping us updated with the progress. The work carried out by Daniel was very high quality with great attention to detail. We found them trustworthy and supportive throughout the entire building process.

What we found when getting quotes from different builders was that Fogden Builders took the time to price the job thoroughly right at the start. This proved very beneficial as at the completion of the project there were no surprises or cost over runs.

We highly recommend Fogden Builders to anyone who is looking to build a high quality house with a building contractor they can trust to get the job done right and within budget.

“Daniel’s standard or workmanship was beyond perfect; he was willing to think outside the square

and made my dream happen”

When deciding on a builder I had heard from a local person that Daniel was particular in his attention to detail with his work, so I knew this was the man for me. I found Fogden Builders overall service absolutely amazing, their service has made me want to build again but only if they are my builders.

Daniels standard of workmanship was beyond perfect, absolutely no complaints but praise. He worked hard to find ways to make my small design decisions happen, he was willing to think outside the square and made my dream happen.

The best thing I liked about working with Fogden Builders was that I could talk through any changes and could trust them for an honest opinion with reasons and explanations, but the decision was still mine. They were good listeners, they confirmed everything in writing and phone calls. Daniel took time to find solutions, so no random rushed decisions because he addressed issues before they became an issue.

I found their communication throughout the project excellent, they were open and honest with clear verbal and written communication, it’s a given I would not hesitate to recommend Fogden Builders to anyone looking for a new home builder.

“Daniel and Michelle are thorough at every step of the process”

Daniel and Michelle are thorough at every step of the process from the initial consult through to the completion of the project. Daniel has a good skillset and a good range of contacts for materials and labour. He was enthusiastic and confident about taking on my project – from the structural beams to the gib fixing. Other tradesman were positive about Daniels workmanship. Daniel & Michelle communicated well and stuck to their time frames’

Fogden Builders was the contract builder who built our family home in 2018. We found Dan to be a great communicator and a meticulous builder with an eye for detail. We’d be happy to use Fogden Builders again and have no hesitation in recommending them.

“We wouldn’t think twice about recommending Fogden Builders to other people”

“From the outset it was very apparent that Fogden Builders took pride in the work they carried out. Fogden Builders were dedicated to meeting the needs and wants for our renovation with very close attention to details no matter how big or small.

Daniel and Michelle were very happy to listen to what we wanted, work through our changes we wished to make and then offer advice on what would and wouldn’t work within building codes and regulations. There were a few issues that occurred during the renovation outside of Fogden Builders contract and again they were very much willing to go the extra mile to help and guide us in the right direction on what paths should be taken to remedy those issues.

Their willingness to make sure the job was done correctly, to a high standard, meeting expectations, but most importantly working with them we got a genuine feeling that they wished to ensure that we were happy and comfortable before, during and after the renovations were carried out.

We wouldn’t think twice about recommending Fogden Builders to other people, considering we only had a bathroom renovation job it was hard finding a Building company who seemed as genuinely interested in the job as Fogden Builders.  We wouldn’t hesitate to use them again as we have more renovations work to carry out and Fogden Builders will be our first port of call.

Great Company, great family with a true sense of reaching customer satisfaction.”
