“Alan and his team completed a loft conversion for us last year. From the moment we met to discuss our requirements through to completion, Alan has been professional, reliable and a complete perfectionist. He and every member of his team take such pride in their work and the attention to detail shown by every single one of them is amazing. Our standards are very exacting (which Alan himself will attest to) but they even exceeded our expectations and were always thinking ahead, considering things that would never have crossed our minds. Not only is their work of the highest quality, the team are all incredibly neat and tidy. We can honestly say that we didn’t encounter any of the residual building dust that is so often referred to. We have two small children and not only did they make sure the house was kept clean and free of any danger at all times, Alan and all of his team were wonderful with them. Our daughters were very upset when I told them the building work had finished and that they would have to say goodbye to them all! Even our neighbours commented on how polite and professional the team were throughout the build.
Alan was always accommodating and patient(!) with us, even when we slowly but surely expanded the remit (the price you pay for being so good!). The job was completed on time and to budget and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the result. We couldn’t imagine using anyone else and would highly recommend Alan and his team to anyone (and we have to everyone who has visited us, seen our lovely loft, and invariably asked for his number) but not before they come back to start on our other rooms!”

We recently demolished and rebuilt our home in Cuffley and were extremely fortunate to have Alan Wright carry out the work for us. Would I recommend him and his team?
We were complete novices to the world of home improvement and Alan made the whole journey a manageable experience from beginning to end. His expertise, skill, conscientiousness and endless patience were faultless throughout. Nothing was too much trouble and every member of the team he brought to the site was equally professional, courteous and reliable.
The outcome? We have a home exceeding anything that we had dreamed of! There were no corners cut and the finish was fantastic – Alan’s eye for detail exceeded even ours! He is a true gem in the world of builders, taking a genuine pride in the work he carries out and completing everything to a very high standard.
Building a home involves thousands of decisions but the best one we made was employing Alan!

We first met Alan and his men when we went to look at a new build house he had almost completed. We were very impressed with the quality and finish of his workmanship and that of his employees. Also we hadn’t realised that his contract with his then customer, extended to helping unload the shopping and removal boxes. The most important thing was obviously the quality of the build and the interior and exterior finishes. Alan and his men had all this covered and we were very impressed with what we had seen so much so that we appointed him as our builder on the extensive enlargement and refurbishment of our house. Alan and his men completed the work on our house in a timely fashion. He project managed the build so that there was a constant flow of activity and called on other specialist professionals from his broad spectrum of connections. He incorporated managing the site and sourcing materials whilst being hands on and on site everyday, working side by side with his men. He made us aware of things we might not have thought of and we incorporated many of his ideas. Nothing was ever too much or inconvenient for him and his men, even when we changed our minds, our happiness was paramount. Very reliable and easy to get on with and they kept the site clean and tidy so much so that we never experienced the layers of dust, many people refer to, that normally keep settling weeks after their project is completed. A very personable man with a lovely team behind him.
Our development was a 1930’s detached house in an acre of garden. Almost untouched since it was built, planning was to extend to one side, remove the roof and add another floor and to incorporate and convert a detached garage. In the process, all internal walls and floors would be removed and replaced, two new staircases installed, and the whole rewired, replumbed, replastered, and new windows throughout. In short, a lot easier to knock it down and start again!
The quote was not the most expensive, nor the cheapest, but from the first meeting we got on fantastically well with Alan. He was professional, articulate and very straightforward, and we were totally confident in giving him the contract.
Alan and his team turned up on the agreed date, and every day, weekend and bank holiday for 8 months until the job was complete. As and when problems arose (and they always do), a solution was always calmly and carefully worked out. Any variances that would affect our budget were always quoted for beforehand, and our total spend with Alan was almost exactly to his original quotation. Nothing was too much trouble and the skill and craftsmanship that went into the project resulted in a beautifully built and finished house. We have to be two of the very few people that really missed our builders when they left!
We have completed many projects over the years but Alan and his men are by far the best team we have ever worked with and we would not hesitate for a moment in recommending him to anyone.
I used Alan Wright’s building company some four years ago when renovating my bungalow. The renovation consisted of – new windows, doors, central heating, new kitchen , new bathroom and plumbing. I had extensions to provide one new room, enlarge another room and to construct two new bathrooms together with the replacement of a flat roof and roof light. All work was carried out professionally and to a high standard. Communication throughout the work was excellent and all work was carried out with respect for our neighbours, with the site being kept clean and tidy. I am happy to recommend this building company.
Over the past 15 years Alan has carried out a number of building projects for us on two different properties.
On our terraced period property, he completed a loft conversion and the removal of a supporting wall and chimney breast to create a large kitchen/dining area. Both these projects involved co-operation with the adjacent properties which shared a party wall. Alan’s attention to detail meant that all the new woodwork and staircases were in sympathy with the original building.
In recent years, Alan has installed a new kitchen and added a conservatory to our 1960s property, again involving the removal of a supporting wall; refurbished a family bathroom to maximize the available space and created a downstairs shower room. Due to his professional approach, Alan enjoys a good relationship with Local Authority Building Control officers and ensures all his work is compliant with current Building Regulations.
Alan works alongside a network of professionals in allied trades meaning that he can draw on specialist skills when required and co-ordinate all the trades to minimize delay. Examples of this in our own experience being the design and installation of our kitchens and conservatory.
We have recommended Alan to several of our friends and would not hesitate to do so in the future. He is reliable, willing to correct any problems arising from completed work and considerate towards the needs of his clients. A particular example of this being our experience of having building work carried out in a house with a young family when we were always comfortable having him around our children.
Thank you very much for the recent work you completed for us. We are impressed with the competitive quote we were given and the detailed breakdown of what the work involved. The work was completed on time and to a very high standard and we are very grateful for the excellent service we received.
We could summarise the service, professionalism and workmanship of Alan and his workforce in one word “outstanding”.
Alan Wright and his team completed a 2-storey extension including a complete re-design of upstairs in May 2008. There was always a team of builders working every day to ensure the job was completed with the minimum disruption and no unnecessary delays. Work was completed in 5 months. The quality of work and attention to detail was excellent with good recommendations from the team for improvements and a number of additions to the planned work being accommodated without issue. All members of the team were pleasant to have around and totally trustworthy. I was delighted with the finished extension and would definitely recommend Alan and his team to anyone needing a good quality builder.
Last year I required a building job to be carried out at my residence. Alan’s company was recommended to me, so I asked him and two other builders to supply an estimate for the works.
The quotation received from Alan was competitive and I sent his company the order.
Alan visited my house and together we formulated a programme for the works.
The building operations were carried out in an efficient manner, with Alan controlling his workforce and material suppliers from start to finish in a very professional manner.
I particularly liked his attention to detail with the construction, and would not hesitate to use him for future work, or in recommending his company to others.
After a recommendation from a friend we chose Alan Wright to extend our home to create extra space at the back and to undertake the conversion of our garage into a study and utility room, in addition to many internal alterations. We were extremely pleased with the standard, quality and attention to detail of the work completed by Alan and his team. Any issues were quickly dealt with and Alan was more than happy to explain things to me as they went along. Everyone involved was very easy to get along with and I loved the fact that they vacuumed up after themselves daily! We found that the work was conducted in a professional and friendly manner at all times whilst taking into consideration our needs and more importantly that of our very young child.
Therefore, we not hesitate to recommend Alan to our friends for their building work and would definitely use Alan and his team again should the need arise.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Alan – in fact, I already did, to my best friend! I was delighted with the both the quality of the work and the manner in which it was undertaken. Alan and his colleagues were a pleasure to deal with, and Alan was always honest about the progress of the work, any issues arising and the costs. He’s so good that I don’t really want to write this as it might mean that he’s too busy next time I have a building project!
We employed A.S. Wright Complete Building Services on a diverse range of projects to complete the refurbishment of our home in 2011. Having discussed the scope of the work with us, Alan Wright came up with practical solutions to our complicated requirements. Alan demands a good work ethic from his team and subcontractors, and he ensured that everything was finished to his own very high standards. We would happily recommend the company as in our experience it lives up to its name and really is a ‘complete building service’ providing a professional job at a competitive price.
It almost goes without saying that Alan’s work, and that of his team, is of the highest standard. He is also 100% reliable and trustworthy – if he commits to something you can be sure he will deliver.
What I value most though is that, despite the many and varied projects he is invariably involved with, he always takes the time to understand the needs of the specific customer and tailor his approach and recommendations accordingly.
Alan came to us highly recommended and we were not disappointed. Alan is the best kind of builder and project manager rolled in to one. Work was completed to a very high standard and within budget. Any issues encountered were brought to our attention immediately and Alan was creative in his solutions to issues encountered to protect our overall project budget. In addition, Alan handled all aspects of Building Control and has a wide range of skilled tradesmen he can call. We would recommend Alan without hesitation.
In January 1997 I hired Mr. Alan Wright to undertake some structural changes and to install a new bathroom. I was very impressed with the quality of the work performed, and with the care and attention to detail shown. The house was always left clean and tidy at the end of each day, although the work generated a great deal deal of dust and dirt.
I would highly recommend Alan Wright to anybody considering any kind of building work.
We were extremely pleased with the standard of your work and with your team of builders. Deadlines were always met and you communicated all stages of the building process very well. The work was always done in a cheery manner and the atmosphere within our house was a very good one. We certainly felt very happy and confident throughout your 8 weeks work here.
Everybody in our street commented on how you always tided up at the end of the day and were most impressed at the speed and standard of the work. I have spent the last few weeks passing your name to all sorts of neighbour’s!
We were also very impressed with the work of you sub-contractors (electrician, plumber, window and flooring expert). We would have no hesitation in using them again.
Once more, thank you for all that you have done for our household. We do plan one other smallish project sometime in the future. You will obviously have first refusal.
Please pass our gratitude to your team.
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for my bathroom. I absolutely love it. I can’t believe it’s the same room!!!!! Please pass on my thanks to your team and can you ask them if they can come round and hoover and tidy up every week?
Alan Wright is one of the nicest people you could meet. His professionalism is second to none, he is always polite and courteous and is extremely trustworthy. Alan is always the first person we call when we want some building work done on our house and he comes up with some good ideas and vision when we can’t see it ourselves. The finished job is always perfect – he won’t leave until it is perfect. I would highly recommend Alan to anyone that asks, and have done on quite a few occasions.
