Mr & Mrs H, Central Cambridge

First class workmanship, kept us informed all the way and absolutely delighted with the end results. Tidy, incredibly focussed and always keen to go the extra mile. No hesitation in recommending you – a pleasure to work with!

Mrs V Watson, Cambridge

They did a complete restoration, loft and extension to my house. I was very happy with the service and the excellent work they did for me. I could not recommend them highly enough.

Mr & Mrs Burton, Girton

Colin and Dave did our kitchen extension, alterations and patio area. They are very professional and friendly. Work was completed on budget and under time, most impressed! They were a pleasure to have in the house and highly recommended.

Mrs S Maltby

Colin has done work for me for the last 15 years including a loft conversion, kitchen extension, renovation of house and numerous other projects. When we lived in Alpha Terrace, he had completed at least 6 other lofts and extensions for our neighbours. He has become part of the family! Great guy, brilliant service, I would not recommend anyone else.

Mr & Mrs Wilcox, St. Ives

Colin carried out a kitchen extension and fitting, new bathroom and various other jobs to our property. Nothing was too much trouble, very clean and very quick without missing out on the details. Great with our two kids, top firm, highly recommended.

Mr & Mrs Cartwright, Cambridge

We were very happy with Colin Barnes recent work on out loft conversion. He was always on time, starting work early in the morning and in all weathers so our project could advance quickly, and was just a tireless worker. The workmanship was excellent and he was very proactive in solving some tricky problems thrown up by architects drawings. He also took the initiative in adding some nice touches to the design (building shelving around chimney breasts) that turned out to be a great idea.

Mr & Mrs Jakes, Cambridge

Colin proved himself to be the most conciencious, thorough and helpful builder that we have employed. He was willing to listen to ideas, make suggestions and try new approaches out. Time keeping was guaranteed and the hours worked long. Each night the building was not left before a detailed clean up was done. He managed to make living in a building project as bearable as possible and worked around our 18 month old daughter, ensuring a safe environment for her. We are delighted with both our completed loft conversion and first floor bedroom/ensuite and have no hesitation in recommending Colin and his work.

Mr & Mrs Livingstone, Cambridge

Colin made an excellent modern conversion of our loft space by extending outwards and upwards to give us another bedroom and bathroom. He added ideas we had not even thought of. This was all completed while we continued to live in the house.Colin is a fast and careful worker ensuring the work was completed well with in the original agreed time period. We thoroughly recommend Colin to others who may have similar conversions to be done.

Greg Mould
Director Premier Travel

Colin has carried out numerous tasks at many of our offices throughout the region, ranging from refurbishments, re-roofing, alterations, shop fitting and many other jobs including emergency and out of hours work. He is always punctual, fast, clean and tidy and totally trustworthy. He is a pleasure to deal with and I would not think twice about recommending him.

Mr Hamilton, Comberton

Colin and his team were focussed, professional and yet also friendly during our kitchen extension. Colin demonstrated a pride in his work by always maintaining high standards throughout the job, and making some helpful suggestions as the job progressed. I was pleased to see him and his team taking care to clean up at the end of the working day, and would definitely recommend Colin Barnes Building Services.

Nigel & Liz, Landbeach

I can recommend Colin Barnes. He did our extension last year. Very good. doesn't waste time and works very hard, even when we had the very hot days last summer. He managed to build our extension on a builders notice so we didn't need to pay architect's fees. I would definitely use him again for any future projects. Plus he is also a carpenter, so hung my internal door beautifully and fitted my skirting for me. I told him the door that I wanted and he ordered and picked it up for me. I just sat back and watched (and made tea!!). He even hoovers and clears up after himself!!
