Richard was recommended by our architect. He has provided an excellent service; he and his team (E, A, J) have been genuine and professional throughout our build. Richard has a great approach to the work, he is helpful and accommodating whilst using experience to provide guidance to meet the highest of standards in the build. The personal touches from him and the team were truly valuable through this tough time.
Richard and his team have delivered a tremendous extension to our 1920’s end of terrace. He has balanced our vision with common sense finishing. Luckily, we have been closely involved in the finish which at times has required some tough decisions. However, the team accepted our input and continued to deliver in a way that we would not have any different. At times it has been hard to see our house as a building site however the result outweighs the occasional lack of attention to maintaining the areas of the house the not being worked on. Despite having some restoration work to complete at the end of the build it is an impressive standard and we will be using Richard for any further work without hesitation.
Following a recommendation, we used The Hindle Partnership for a side extension. The project took 3 months (exactly as Richard had predicted) and we’ve been really impressed throughout. From initial quotes and throughout the build Richard, Ernest and the team were prompt, diligent and a pleasure to work with. The project was finished on time and within budget, the only overspend being due to our requirement for more electrical fittings. The quality of work is excellent, they took great care to keep the place as clean and tidy as possible given that we were living in the house throughout, and they were considerate of our young baby.
Richard and Ernest provided lots of advice for our ongoing DIY work too. We would strongly recommend them, and would use them without hesitation for any additional work in the future. Thank you very much
We were recommended The Hindle Partnership and this year Richard and his excellent team completed an extensive bathroom and bedroom project – on budget – despite the challenges of COVID midway. His team, especially Viktor, were always polite, punctual and creative at coming up with ideas and suggestions along the way and a pleasure to have in our home. Communications were really easy and Richard himself has a wealth of knowledge. We already have them lined up for our next project.
Hindle Partnership seem to get their business only through word of mouth and that is how we heard of them, from a friend of a friend. We had looked at a number of other companies, including some big names, and although they mostly did a component job there was usually something to fault.
Sometimes it was the design, sometimes the carpentry was not right, or the plastering a bit rough, sometimes the people were a bit smarmy or pushy. We were therefore relieved to meet Richard Hindle who was calming and authoritative.
He listened well and had great patience. For example, he brought round his plumber to explain in great detail all the options we faced, the pros and cons of each and the likely costs. We were also impressed with the designer/draughtsman who drew up the plans. He was equally painstaking and good at giving advice. In fact, all the people they used (electrician, bricklayers, roofers, plasterer, etc.) were without exception easy to get on with as well as being good at their trades.
Our job was relatively complicated. A hip roof was removed, the gable built up with old bricks to match the existing and a mansard built. This gave us a shower room and a huge bedroom (we could have made the space into two rooms but liked the feeling of space). Richard made it all look easy, we hardly noticed anything as the work was done from the outside and we were all set to complete in the scheduled time.
The best test of a company is to see how it performs in a crisis. On another job, Richard Hindle badly damaged his hand and was forbidden on doctor’s orders to work for 6-8 weeks. As this was the height of summer with a number of jobs underway or due to start, this meant great pressure on Robert Hindle to run the workload of two people. Although this was a fraught time for them, we had only a slight delay in our work.
Another test is what happens when small things go wrong. We had days of torrential rain and twice some water came in on weekend evenings. Both times Richard responded immediately to calls on his mobile and came round to fix the problem, climbing out on the rain lashed scaffolding to fix the problem.
We highly recommend Richard Hindle and would be delighted to show his prospective customers the results of his work.
Why have one kitchen, when you can have two?
Having moved into a house with an exceptionally poorly planned kitchen that had the sink and dishwasher in a separate room, floor-to-ceiling south-facing glass window with no opening ventilation, and nowhere to plug in a toaster, I asked friends to recommend their builders. Richard turned up on time, had loads of ideas, provided the best value for money and we were immediately on the same page in terms of the finish and quality of craftsmanship I was after.
Throughout the building project from the rip out, to digging up the concrete floors, knocking out new doorways, and replacing everything from windows to ring mains, gas supply, and plumbing, to kitchen units, the site was managed well, the project stayed on budget and the finish exceeded my exceptionally high standards.
Needless to say, I was so delighted with my kitchen extension that The Hindle Partnership has since been re-employed to completely re hard-landscape my garden with yes, an outdoor kitchen too. Well, why not!
Richard Hindle and his team worked on our house for nearly 4 months doing an extension and a re-arrangement of the ground floor rooms. This included the removal of three walls and replacement with steel girders. Richard and his team were great; they were reliable, worked hard bringing the architect’s plans to reality, were neat and tidy, communicative, responded to our ideas and requests and maintained a creative interest in our project from start to finish. The project was delivered on time and to budget. My wife and I would definitely recommend The Hindle Partnership.
We have used Richard Hindle twice over the years and have been very pleased with the results both time. His work is reasonably priced and of a very high standard (see kitchen). His team are professional, personable and the projects we’d had with him have stayed (largely) on budget. I would heartily recommend him!
We used The Hindle Partnership initially for a loft conversion approx 9 years ago and were so happy went on to use them again for a kitchen extension. I have recommended them to friends and continue to do so as we have been very happy with their work.
