Read about our clients’ experiences of working with ridgepro construction.

We found Peter Berry to be professional, courteous and responsive.

We found Peter Berry to be professional, courteous and responsive: he was a pleasure to work with and absorbed much of the stress that is inevitably associated with a significant building project.  We'd have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

Mr & Mrs A Sharma – South Liverpool

We are thrilled with our finished extension and it is even better than we hoped.

Huge thanks to you and your team for our finished extension. We are thrilled with it and it is even better than we hoped. You dealt with everything with such professionalism which meant little problems caused us minimal stress. We so appreciate your working and managing the finish with us on holiday the other side of the world.  We knew our house was in safe hands.

Mr & Mrs Hampshire – Heswall

What can I say....apart from a huge thank you Ridgepro for turning our dream into a STUNNING REALITY! The whole build was a very positive experience, finished on time and to the very high standard we wanted, we are delighted, its an amazing space to live in.

After finally gaining full planning permission for our oak framed extension, the next hurdle was who would/could build it to the high finish we wanted?  After discussing the project with numerous builders but to no avail we, on recommendation went to look at some of Peter Berry's work.  The build quality and finish was the same high standard throughout the properties.....we had found our builder. We were so impressed with Peters organisation, everything ran smoothly and on time.  The trades that work with him are courteous and share his perfectionism.  I brought  in two companies for the project (an Oak Frame Company and Spiral Cellars), Peter liaised and scheduled them in to the 6 month build without a hitch. Obviously snags do crop up along the way but its how they are dealt with.  Peter discussed any problems with us immediately so they could be swiftly sorted.  I always felt well informed and part of the build as I wondered around in my own yellow hard hat and safety jacket sorting out paint colours, light fittings, position of plug sockets etc etc! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ridgepro and will very much look forward to working with them again.

Mr & Mrs Batson – Willaston

Peter is responsive to design and client requirements and happy to work collaboratively with the design team to achieve the highest standards of workmanship and detailing.

We have worked with Peter on several residential projects, most recently a complex refurbishment and extension of a Cheshire Farmhouse within a Conservation area.  Peter is at all times responsive to design  and client requirements and happy to work collaboratively with the design team to achieve the highest standards of workmanship and detailing, as well as ensuring the project is completed on time and budget.

Good project management and interspersonal skills are essential for a successful domestic project and Peter has these in abundance.  I would not hesitate to recommend him.


Richard Roberts RIBA – Partner CASS Associates

Peter Berry has an eye for detail and produces a top quality finish keeping you informed and involved in the project from start to finish.

Peter did our first house remodelling back in 2008. Every room in the house was changed so we moved into rented accommodation for the duration of the project. From start to finish we were fully involved in the project, with a realistic budget and timescale. The house was transformed into a fantastic living space and the project came in under budget and one week ahead of schedule!!

Since then our family has expanded and we needed to extend the kitchen to create a new dining area with direct access to the garden. We were so impressed with the original work we asked Peter back to do the kitchen extension and didn't bother getting other quotes. Peter Berry has an eye for detail and produces a top quality finish keeping you informed and involved in the project from start to finish. A true professional - so good we used his services twice. You wont find better.


Mike Jenkinson MD – South Liverpool

The finish is exactly what we wanted. It looks and feels good and the craftsmanship is of the highest quality.

I am more than happy to provide a testimonial for Peter Berry and his excellent team of craftsmen. They have been on site for nearly 8 months tackling an exciting and exacting project. The finished article is superb. The finish is exactly what we wanted. It looks and feels good and the craftsmanship is of the highest quality.

Peter himself has run the project to a very high standard. He has been approachable and anything we have asked for has been carried out in an exemplary professional manner, on time and within budget. Nothing has been too much trouble.

My wife and I would strongly recommend him for any such future projects we might have and in the broader context of other work we would be happy to provide a reference.


David Richmond MD – Thornton Hough

To anybody considering using Ridgepro, think no more. We have to say working with Peter has been an absolute pleasure.

To anybody considering using ridgepro, think no more. We have to say working with Peter has been an absolute pleasure. You always enter these projects with some trepidation, worrying about what problems may arise, and have you chosen the right builder for the project. Yes, we had a few obstacles, but Peter was invariably part of the solution and not part of the problem.

Right from the very start, Peter took the time to explain to us what was going to happen and when. All the way through the build he was in regular contact, and was very accommodating in working around our schedules. The quality and reliability of the tradesmen Peter uses is superb. If he told us they were going to be there on a certain day, they would be there. The build was completed on schedule and within the original estimate.

Peter’s attention to detail was fantastic, even taking time to source reclaimed bricks that match the existing building. During the build, the site was kept very clean and tidy, and even when he had to break through into the house he took great care to minimise dust and disruption, and to keep the house secure.

We would have absolutely no reservations about recommending Ridgepro as your building contractor. We are more than happy to let any of his prospective clients visit our house and view for themselves the quality of the workmanship.

Peter, once again, many thanks for all of your time, effort and patience. The end result is superb.

Everything is just perfect. Thank you so much for making it a reality.


Mr & Mrs Robb – Willaston

Mr Berry has a passion for delivering both a high quality of building work and service to his clients, and therefore I would not hesitate to recommend Ridgepro to other clients.

We have lived in our house for seven years, and had always wanted to knock through from our dining room into our attached out-house. We had initial plans drawn up and received quotes from two companies.

Peter Berry, from Ridgepro, discussed our initial plans with us for about an hour and a half. After this discussion we decided to alter them so that we had an open plan kitchen/dining room. This would be achieved by removing an internal and an external wall, adding a small extension, and removing a chimney breast from the dining room. We also planned to knock through into the out-building, converting this space into a utility room and toilet.

After our initial meeting we received a detailed summary of our discussion and a quote. The estimated duration of the work was 10 weeks. Although the length of the building work is important to any client, it was crucial to us as we were expecting a baby on the 24th April and the building work was scheduled to finish on the 9th April.

We decided to proceed with Ridgepro as we felt it was important to use a company that would deliver the high quality that we wanted, working within the constraints of our plans. The build would not tolerate any errors, since the plans involved working within a fairly small space contained within an existing seven foot high sandstone wall and a considerable height difference between the existing kitchen and the out-house (a drop of three feet).

Work was due to start in early February, and the initial work actually started on site in the week before this. Throughout the work, we were kept up to date with progress, and were involved in all decisions at various stages of the building work. One of the best things about the building work was that we only had to deal with one person (Mr Berry) who managed the project, and we did not have to become involved with discussing our plans with any of the other builders or tradesmen.

During the build Mr Berry suggested making some minor changes to the build design (removing a small window and adding a Velux window). These changes improved the build by increasing the light into the utility room.

We were pleased that the work was finished on time, and within the cost of the initial quote. We were able to move back into our house on schedule. The snag list was also sorted out without any delays or problems.

Mr Berry has a passion for delivering both a high quality of building work and service to his clients, and therefore I would not hesitate to recommend Ridgepro to other clients.


Mr & Mrs Hampshire – Heswall

We have been very pleased with the standard of work and the professional manner in which the whole process has taken place.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Peter and would be happy to take calls from anybody who wants further information.

Ridgepro Construction has carried out a number of major building projects for us during the last 12 months. The work includes a single storey extension, a magnificent hardwood conservatory, and the current remodelling work to the whole front boundary wall and garden area of our house. We decided to allow the company to carry out all the finishing touches including a new shower room, full decoration, the underfloor heating and slate flooring throughout the new conservatory.

We have been very pleased with the standard of work and the professional manner in which the whole process has taken place.

All work is clearly documented and finished on time against the agreed costs, with the minimum of fuss.

Peter has been our direct contact and been available to answer questions and resolve any queries promptly.


Mr & Mrs Lipsey – West Kirby

With Peter Berry as the one point of contact we always felt clear about what work was being done and who would be doing it.

Thank you Ridgepro Construction for giving a fantastic extension that gives us the extra space that we need for our new arrival.

We moved to Heswall four years ago and always had plans to extend our property but just never got round to it. When we found out I was pregnant at the beginning of this year we realised that if we were going to extend it was now or never!

We were recommended to Ridgepro Construction by a friend and so invited Peter Berry to come and have a look at our property and plans in April this year. We were extremely impressed with Peter from the start. On the initial consultation he took a great deal of time to understand and clarify our needs, wants and budget. We are certainly no experts as far as building work goes, so were pleased that Peter took the time to explain everything in great but simple detail. No question was deemed too small or stupid. At the end of that consultation we were completely clear about what the work would involve. Peter then forwarded a very comprehensive breakdown of costs and timelines.

We were told the work would take between eight and ten weeks. As our baby is due end of September when we told friends and family that we were extending the house this close to the birth they said we were mad and everyone had their building horror stories to tell about projects taking years and costing a fortune!

Work started on the 15th June and right from day one we found Ridgepro Construction a pleasure to deal with. With Peter Berry as the one point of contact we always felt clear about what work was being done and who would be doing it. It can be stressful have workers in your home for long periods of time, but again we were very impressed with the level of professionalism, friendliness and reliability of all the different tradesmen that Ridgepro uses.

Work finished on the 20th August, exactly ten weeks on! We are so pleased with the end result, especially as it also came in on budget. We would have no doubt in recommending Ridgepro Construction to anyone due to the personal, professional service that is provided, coupled with the excellent workmanship. In fact, we recommended Ridgepro to our 92-year old neighbour! Work started on her property last week.

 

Mrs Woodley – Heswall

The project was completed as promised to the agreed time scales. All of the work was done to an extremely high standard.

We have just completed a kitchen extension to the rear of our property. Mr Berry provided an excellent service from the initial consultation from the plans and construction to the completion and handover.

The project was completed as promised to the agreed time scales. All of the work was done to an extremely high standard.

Mr Berry made every effort to minimise the inevitable disruption caused by such a project.

His contractors all arrived on time and as agreed. Without exception their work was of the highest quality and his workers were all trustworthy.

On completion of the project the property was left clear and tidy, and all rubbish was cleared away.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Mr Berry and his contractors. I would undoubtedly use his services again if required.


Mr & Mrs Eyes – Heswall

We both still, everyday, get a real thrill from our fantastic new ground floor room, which you envisioned and then designed and built for us.

Thank you for the finished product that we have much enjoyed and will continue enjoying. We have no hesitation in recommending you to any potential future customers.

As promised we are sending our comments on the standard of the work and our opinions on the overall presentation - how the building work went and your role in completing this project. We know it is sometime since you completed our project (about 16 months ago now) but in some ways a later reference gives a great deal more credence to our comments on the standard of the work and the overall concept undertaken.

We both still, everyday, get a real thrill from our fantastic new ground floor room, which you envisioned and then designed and built for us. We would not have been able to conceive the design and the overall concept on our own, nor had the courage to attempt it. For the concept and your gentle persuasion we will be forever thankful to you, Peter. We are aware that a specialised technique was employed by using a steelwork frame support that proved to be more than satisfactory to Building Control.

We have no problem in giving high praise for your vision; your time in taking us to see one of your completed projects built to a similar design; your encouragement in taking us through the project to the end; the high standard of cleanliness at the end of each day's work; your sensitivity to the cessation of work over Christmas, and assisting us with the ability to function very successfully without a kitchen for a considerable period. This, together with the high standard of the finished project, is for all to see and vouch for. Since completion we have been able to relax and fully enjoy this new room (open plan kitchen/dining and sitting room) which has also brought the garden closer to us by the use of the bi-fold doors.

The new utility room fulfils its purpose admirably as well as giving utilitarian access to the side of the house, and the en-suite shower room is fantastic, being to an excellent, high standard and what we have waited so long for all these years.

Several months after completion when a small issue with a door frame occurred (the result of the drying-out process) you responded immediately by calling the next day with the appropriate workman and the issue was resolved there and then.


Mr & Mrs Maunder – Parkgate

We have no hesitation in recommending Peter Berry of Ridgepro Construction as a highly professional and reliable builder for your project.

We have known Peter for over eight years and have worked with him on numerous projects. We understand that by extending or carrying out alterations to your home you are likely to be making a large financial and emotional commitment to your project, which makes standards and performance from others all the more important.

Ridgepro have a policy of “good communication”, to minimise the possibility of running into problems, which both our clients and ourselves found to be excellent. Ridgepro helped throughout the process from start to finish and ensured that works are carried out with as few hitches as possible and without any hidden costs being added to the final bill.


David Cornett – SNOW Architects Ltd (RIBA-registered practice)

You and your team are a credit to the building professions/trades. Your workmanship brings a smile to my face and I constantly thank you for making it so stress free for me.

Sorry to have taken so long to reply. I have been hectically showing off my wonderful extension for the past three months. It is amazing how it has altered the whole feel and flow of the house. My sitting room never needs tidying because I spend all my time in the extension. I never realised how active the garden is, with wildlife.

I am particularly pleased with the work on reconfiguring the kitchen and utility room. You started when you said it would and despite the unexpectedly harsh winter, finished exactly on schedule. If there were any glitches I did not know about them and my life continued amazingly near normal during a four month build. You told me the plan, there were no surprises and I really appreciated that.

My neighbours are grateful and stunned that you took their concerns about their view so seriously as to have the brick effect hand finished to match the original side wall, which I rarely look at and would have ignored.

Everybody who has visited thinks it is beautifully made and all are incredulous that the build was so problem-free. I have been broadcasting your praises to anybody who will listen. You and your team are a credit to the building professions/trades. Your workmanship brings a smile to my face and I constantly thank you for making it so stress free for me.

Should you ever need a recommendation I am happy to vouch for your high standards and professionalism. If you ever need to show it off, give me notice to tidy up and it will be available.


Patricia Sheehan – Heswall

I have found them to be the best domestic builders that I have worked with. They are organised, courteous and professional.

I have worked closely with Ridgepro on more than ten building projects over the last nine years.

I have found them to be the best domestic builders that I have worked with. They are organised, courteous and professional.

I have got to know Peter Berry well during this time, and he is a man of great integrity. He takes great care at every stage of the project, from initial pricing through to hanging the final picture on the wall. His management skills are excellent, and he takes on a personal commitment with each job.

I would not hesitate to recommend Ridgepro.
