John Sorry I thought I sent this to you.


Hope this is ok.


John, Just wanted to write to express our thanks for the hard work and commitment everyone showed on the extension. The Ex-Army Builders have done nothing but impress from start to finish during the whole house extension project (2 Storey Side and 1 Storey back and a redone attic conversion). Always being wary of stories you hear about the building trade it was refreshing to find a very professional attitude. Every one of the references provided could not be more complimentary. From providing a competitive quote to overcoming issues unforeseen by the architects, dealing with the Planning Control Officers and even doing a bit of late night security on the site, every member of the Ex-Army Builders team have really exceeded our expectations. Everyone who we have had dealings with in the company has shown commitment and focus on making sure things went right and that the build was completed to the highest possible standards. We certainly will be using your company again for all future building projects and would happily recommend Ex-Army Builders to anyone looking to take on any type of building project big or small.

John reference below:

we employed Ex Army Builders to build an attic extension. They delivered exceptional service throughout the project with high quality workmanship and attention to every minor detail. The completed extension has enhanced our house. We will definitely use them again and would have no hesitation  in recommending them to friends and family. 




Michael Moore,

retired company chief executive commented:

Ex-Army Builders are a highly commendable firm, totally committed to quality. As the name of the Company implies, the work force are skilful, creative and disciplined and take justifiable pride in their achievements. With the major emphasis on site preparation – a key factor in their success - they carry out the work as a well-managed project. When one engages Ex-Army Builders one effectively forms a working partnership, with the site manager and his team amenable to changes as the project evolves and keen to ensure customer satisfaction at all stages along the way.

Many thanks



Roger Houseman,

Following the fantastic job that your team produced. I just had to write and say the following.

From the outset we were in no doubt we had chosen the right firm to put a two storey extension on our property.

All the headaches were taken away by the in house approach ( no pun) from plans , groundwork, tiling the bathroom,fence ,to laying the new lawn you managed to do a first rate job both my wife (Andrea) and I are so pleased. The complete package we have already recommended you to our friends in Crowthorne.

Make sure you pop in when your passing for some Tea ( the whole team)

Many thanks John

best wished with the future

Mrs. K. Lawton,

Hello John ,

Thank you very much for erecting the new fence and posts , and I will call you in a couple of months time to sort out a start date for my extention.

All the best



Dear John

We would like to confirm our delight and thank you for the magnificent transformation to our
back garden. Removing the old swimming pool, landscaping including patios, a retaining wall
and other excellent brickwork.

With the contours of the land, it was not a straightforward job but you were very helpful with
ideas and we appreciate the amount of time you spent at the design stage. Earlier in the year
you created a new driveway for us, which was carried out with military preci
sion a nd to our
great satisfaction. The garden was radically improved in the same way. (We have attached
some photos).

You and your team were incredibly hard working and always very pleasant. Nothing was too
much trouble for any of you. We have no hesitation in recommending your work and if we
require any building work in the future, we will certainly be in touch.

Finally, we would like to wish you all every success in the future, as you certainly deserve it.


Janet and John Thomas


To Whom It May Concern

We have now used Ex-Army Builders twice and are delighted with their advice, work & service. We firstly
used them for a driveway splay a couple of years ago and they have just completed ( Feb.2010) a second
large splay with drainage & verge works.
Their prices are competitive & the team work swiftly & efficiently to produce an excellent end result.

We are
happy for their work to be seen Mill Lane, Yateley GU46 7SS phone 01252 879688

Dear John,

I am writing to express our gratitude towards you and your team for the
wonderfull extension that you have just finished.

June and i are both stunned at the speed and the overall finish of the
building work that was achieved ahead of schedule.

Many thanks again

Mr & Mr`s. J. Watts


Dear John, No, change that.

My wife and would like to express our complete and utter satisfaction with the new patio
your company has recently completed for us. Your team were always very hard working,
professional, courteous, quiet and always tidied up at the end of the day's work. The work
was carried out in a fully professional manner and to a high standard.

The colours in the stone when damp or wet really show through and make it (the patio) come
alive.I am more than happy to recommend you to anyone who cares to ask. In fact there
have been one or two enquiries from people at my work already. We would not hesitate to
e attached some "before and after" photos for you to use if you wish, mostly "after",
"before" was too embarrassing to photograph much.

Good luck, and may your company continue to grow and prosper.


Iain and Pamela
