Testimonials

Mrs and Mrs Bartlett, Brackley - June 2012
We were really pleased with the quality of the work Simon & his team delivered when they converted our garage into a home office. They were prompt to arrive & worked hard each day, resulting in the work being completed within a week. There was very little disruption or mess, which made the whole experience a positive one.

We happily recommend Simat & would use them again for future projects.

Ms J Quarrell, Acting Headteacher Chalgrove School – Dec 2011
We were all so thrilled with the finished project; the governors are very pleased that it was finished early and on budget, the children have really enjoyed using the new play area and the path under the trees will be beautiful all year round.

We were most impressed with the exceptionally professional approach of Simon and his team of builders, as a Headteacher you need to be sure that the people you're inviting into school will be able to work with groups of small children watching and asking questions. All the builders were willing to talk to the children about their work, this meant that the children felt that they were involved in the building project.

Thank you so much for helping us to make our school a better place.

Mr and Mrs Martin, Brackley - Sept 2011
We'd be happy to recommend Simat without hesitation!

Our biggest worry with building our extension was finding a good and reliable builder - We couldn't have made a better choice. The job started on the day it was scheduled and Simon and his team turned up before 8am every single day for 8 weeks - until the job was completely finished.

From the very early stages, including preparing the quote, Simon took time to consider and discuss several options and their effect on the practicalities and price. During the build if there were any decisions to make which would affect the final building, they were discussed, so there were no hidden surprises or features to be undone/redone. The work was all planned to minimise the mess and upheaval in the rest of the house making the whole project go very smoothly.

The extension looks as good as we'd hoped for - the details of the new brickwork matches really well with the older part of the house. Overall we're delighted with the building and with Simat!

Decking and wall - WOW!

Just came back from Holiday and can't believe how much you've done, we sat out on it this weekend. The deck is the perfect shape and size and the wall is STUNNING! Thank you so much for suggesting we make it curved, the bricks are exactly what we were looking for. You can see how much work has gone into building this bespoke outdoor room, you've helped us make something which will really enhance our garden for years to come. Thanks again

J and A, Brackley, Apr 2011
We purchased a somewhat dated detached house in early 2011. Having already done one massive renovation 10 years ago, where several contractors were used, this time we decided to run with a local builder, who was recommended to us. We met with Simon (Simat Ltd.), and immediately felt comfortable that we could work together. As the title suggests over the next 4 months our requirements, which changed several times, were met without question, to a very high standard. We, at the end of the project have achieved the desired lovely updated home with all our thanks to Simon and his team. We would, without hesitation, recommend Simon to new clients

Mr B Kelly, Evenley, (various dates)
"Simat had been handling a number of jobs for us, such as laying new patios and completing large exterior house maintenance work, for some years. They had always been reliable, efficient and workmanlike. They were therefore our clear choice when we wished to carry out a much larger undertaking - a garage conversion and associated ground floor house extension. We were not disappointed. Every morning they arrived early and worked through the full day. They completed the development on time, within budget and to a highly satisfactory level of finish. At the end of each working day the site was left clean and tidy. We have no hesitation in recommending Simat and would engage them again without question."

Ms E Thackara, Bedford - Feb 2010

Simon and his team transformed my kitchen and downstairs bathroom into a gorgeous kitchen-diner. They worked quickly, efficiently and to an excellent standard, plus they kept me informed at all times and tidied up after themselves! I would highly recommend them and am happy to supply references.

Dr and Mrs Carter, Kings Sutton – Dec 2009


"Simat recently completed a garage conversion for us. They were prompt and efficient. Any practical difficulties with the work were discussed with us clearly and sensibly. The quality of the workmanship was first class and they provided very good value for money. The project was seen through to completion very quickly and with minimum disruption to our family while the work was being carried out. The project came in on budget and on time, I would not hesitate to recommend them and we would certainly use them again for any building work."

Mr and Mrs M Willis, Silverstone – Oct 2009
"Simat Ltd was engaged to build:

Our initial objective was to find a reputable professional builder, who was not a 'cowboy' and who could provide a quality finished job on time and at a fair price. It needs one professional to recognise another so rather than risk choosing random names from a local directory we obtained a list of recommended names from our architect. We selected a short list of four, three of whom provided basic quotes based on our architect's plan after just one visit to our house. Simat Ltd, however, paid an additional visit bringing with them their preferred electrical and plumbing sub-contractors which enabled an in-depth discussion on our requirements. We subsequently met with the conservatory sub-contractor as well. This intercourse not only established a full understanding of the project requirements by all parties but also enabled Simat Ltd to provide a more precise quote probably containing less 'contingency' than the other quotes received, which we were happy to accept. The references given by Simat Ltd confirmed our decision to appoint them.

Our confidence in Simat Ltd was not misplaced. The service provided by them and their sub-contractors was thoroughly professional at all times. They attended on site each day without fail and kept us well informed of their movements. They took great care in matching bricks and roof tiles to those on the existing house as far as possible. Unfortunately the bricks used for building the house were no longer available but it is hoped the new bricks will blend with the old as they become weathered. The quality and efficiency of the work carried out and materials used were to a high standard as indicated by the adjacent before and after photographs. The project was finished on time and according to schedule. All snags were promptly resolved and we had no cause for complaint.

We were very pleased with the outcome of the project. Due to the good understanding forged with Simat Ltd at the outset the finished work matched our initial vision very well and there was nothing of consequence that we would have arranged differently. We would not hesitate recommending them for building projects of a similar nature."

Mr & Mrs Crisp,Brackley – Nov 2008
