Pricing is clear and value great

We used Self build Heroes to replace the soffit on our balcony and to repair part of our downpipe and roof tile. Their work is high quality compared to the soffit they replaced, which did not have all the trim and had started to sag because additional noggins had not been added to secure the soffit took. They worked efficiently, were friendly, polite and respectful on site, and cleaned up after themselves. They turned up promptly, when they said they would and did a full day of work. The manner in which they work fills you with confidence that they are going to do an excellent job. I know they are highly trained and always looking to perfect their trade. Prior to starting they took plenty of time to discuss what needed to happen and talk through solutions, as well as advising where we could do the work ourselves if we wanted in order to save some money. Pricing is clear and value great. I highly recommend them and will be using them again to fix more things around our house.

Knowledgeable and honest

Self Build Heroes helped me out with a bespoke renovation project and I can’t recommend them highly enough. From the outset the advice was knowledgeable and honest, explaining clearly all the risks involved, which left me feeling confident to commission the project. Once the project started, Matt and his team were extremely reliable, something that is all too rare in his line of work! My project was finished to a fantastic standard, on time and to budget, so I couldn’t be happier.
