I have been delighted with the end result of 'The Build'. The job entailed building a shower/loo extension off the kitchen where an outside loo and coalbunker stood.
For me this was quite an undertaking but Ben was patient, had good advice ensuring I was kept in the picture both cost and time-wise.
And so I watched as every aspect of a build seemed to take place: demolishing, rebuilding, roofing, plastering, tiling, new windows & door, lighting, plumbing - all to be done to a strict deadline which was met.
Ben is a perfectionist - his attention to detail obvious. His team were not only good (they would need to be) but punctual, happy, respectful, trustworthy and tidy.
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Cavanagh Construction Ltd. and friends and family who have since visited, can see why.

I was delighted with the work carried out by Cavanagh Construction who were very considerate and respectful throughout the job. Ben is focused on giving the client exactly what they want and my conservatory is exactly as I'd hoped it would be.

I would definitely recommend Cavanagh-construction to provide anyone who wants a hassle-free reliable building service for any size job. Their friendly manner provides useful information about building options which is invaluable as a customer to guide decisions. I have no hesitation to use this company again for any future building work.'

We have worked with Ben for the last 3 years and found his quotations competitive. Responses to queries are quickly resolved and, alternative more economical methods of construction are presented for consideration when the budget dictates cost savings.

Ben Cavanagh is a good craftsman, clean, tidy, polite and friendly. He has done major jobs around my house which is all wooden. It is always good to know a good carpenter. We are very happy with the craftsmanship.

Cavanagh Construction were recommended to us by a local friend who had work done by them. From our initial meeting Ben & the rest of the team on site, we found the whole process to be stress free & good value for money. I work within the Building Industry myself & felt comfortable using Cavanagh Construction from day one. I opted not to use an Architect & prepare all the drawings myself, which is something slightly unconventional in domestic work.The Cavanagh Construction team were happy to work closely with us to suit our needs & the end result of our loft conversion has been exactly as we had hoped. Their site based team are noteworthy in their professional attitude & approach to site cleanliness. Client perception is in my opinion a very important element in undertaking & delivering a successful project. The team clearly care about what they are building & are all polite and approachable. I would happily recommend Cavanagh Construction to anyone looking for a reliable & professional contractor to take on their building project.

As for your work and you can quote me on this, I am very happy and would have absolutely no hesitation in using Cavanagh Construction again or recommending them to family & friends. I found Cavanagh Construction to be professional, thorough, reliable and clean!

We are extremely pleased with our kitchen, which still looks great several years later. Ben organised absolutely everything, from the new ceiling, replastering, electrics, plumbing and fitting the kitchen. I had always heard that having a new kitchen was more upheaval than any other room, but we simply went away on our summer holiday for 2 weeks and when we came back it was finished! It was very important that we left someone we could trust to complete the work whilst we were away. Everything was exactly what I wanted! I would definitely recommend Ben to others, and in fact did recommend him to both my mother and auntie who also have lovely new kitchens now.

Mr & Mrs H Budden

Dear Ben. We are delighted with all the work carried out by Cavanagh Construction. We found everyone who came into our home pleasant, friendly and efficient and the job was completed earlier than predicted. Nothing was too much trouble and the attention to detail was amazing so we have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending this company.

Mr & Mrs Jayasekara. Burnham on Crouch

Over the past 25 years my association with the building trade was not plain sailing, rarely can I select one and make a recommendation. However, last summer we hired Cavanagh Construction to carry out a project paid by our insurers. It was well managed, completed on time to the satisfaction of our insurers and ourselves. Above all the enthusiasm of the Cavanagh Construction team impressed me immensely.

Mr and Mrs Taylor, Burnham

We have had Ben Cavanagh do several jobs for us over the last few years, including a new kitchen, and we have always been entirely satisfied. His honesty, his attention to detail and craftsmanship are second to none as far as we are concerned. We would not hesitate to use him again.

Mr Pearse. Burnham on Crouch

We had no oven and the design didn't enable easy replacement. Also had low quality kitchen units. So decided to call Cavanagh Construction who had proven to us quality of workmanship as we were able to view and talk to previous customers. The price Cavanagh Construction gave was comparable but offered better value and assurance.Its a pleasure to be in our the new kitchen. The design Cavanagh Construction came up with has made activities much easier due to better locating of the units, storage and workspace. We were able to choose a fab cooker to go in a much bigger area due to removing a wall, also being able to add a down stairs toilet. The quality of the finish and craftsmanship is very high. Ben was very organised and made good use of very hard working, polite and professional tradesmen. We were always kept informed daily.Ben is very approachable and very honest. I was very suspicious of builders not having had a project like this before, but i felt very reassured.

My anxiety about having a new bathroom and kitchen was quickly dispelled by Ben’s calm and reassuring approach. Once he had the idea of what I wanted, Ben made great suggestions which I would never have thought of and ensured that the kitchen and bathroom both functioned as I wanted them to. All of the team demonstrated a professional, polite but friendly approach, happy to answer my questions no matter how trivial they must have seemed to them. They also worked in a tidy manner and cleaned up after themselves properly.Ben was always available by phone or email and responded quickly even when it was a case of me changing my mind about a detail such as wall colour after the painting was complete. The attention to detail was excellent and the end result is better than I had ever envisaged. I now proudly show off my bathroom and kitchen to anyone that I can persuade over the doorstep. Cavanagh Construction approach made the process stress free and I consider it was excellent value for money. I have already used them again to have new wooden floors installed and have another project lined up. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cavanagh Construction for any project.
