"We have employed Green Building Company this summer to repair and redecorate both the front and rear elevations of 74 Lansdowne Place.

Initially I found them on Check a Trade and was impressed by their reputation so asked Michael Green to quote. He was the most professional of all the builders I had to quote in that he produced a written quotation within 2 weeks as he said he would, others I had to chase or they sent a 2 sentence email as a quote.

Michael's family team started the job on time and worked reliably and systematically through the job. Their preparation and repair work to cracks in the render was thorough, stripping off all blown render and starting from scratch. The team clean up after themselves and were courteous and polite to have around. Michael and his team were easy to communicate with of any problems that arose. All of their work was to a very high standard and I will certainly continue to use them in the future and recommend them to anyone."

"We have recently employed Green Builders to build a sidefill extension in our 100 year old tenaced house. They were atways punctual, always very respectful and polite and a pleasure to dealwith. The work has been completed to a high standard, consistent with their quote and on time, despite the inevitable unexpected problems which arose during the project. Michael always made sure that we understood what was happening and took care to explain things to us when necessary. Michaeland his team have abundant knowledge and experience: there were a couple of occasions where the architect and/or structural engineer had overlooked essential points which Michael picked up and resolved, thereby saving us much time and worry."

"We just wanted to say thankyou for doing such a great job on our garae conversion.

The new rooms look fantastic -it's hard to imagine it was ever a garage! You all worked really hard, turned up on time every day and cleaned up as you went along which was great to come home to.

If we need some building work done in the future, we will definitely give you a call."

"Michael provided a comprehensive quote for the job discussed along with several written references. Although the start date was delayed he kept me informed and I was willing to wait because I liked him. He didn't have a problem dealing with a woman (still the case with some unfortunately) and didn't talk to be me like I was an idiot. He is always swift to respond to communications day or night and provided revised quotes for additional work quickly. He won't dodge your calls or emails and doesn't make you feel like he is doing you a favour by turning up for work. I work from home and was concerned about the impact of having people around for an extended period (I am quite a grumpy and solitary person) but the boys are really nice and don't impose themselves. They turned up at 8 am for 7 weeks and got on with it. Michael and his sons are pro-active, positive and pragmatic craftsmen who are actually running a family business. We would use them again and I am happy to be contacted if you need further reassurance."

"I employed Green Builders to build a kitchen extension and new bathroom in my house last year. I had previously seen Michael’s work at a friend’s house and I was impressed with the quality of work.

Michael is a very good communicator and prior to the work starting we discussed the project and he gave me a full and accurate quote and starting date.

The work started on the due date and was carried out in a highly professional manner. As a family firm, he and his sons were extremely friendly and considerate. They tidied up at the end of each day and kept me fully informed of progress. They worked quickly and tidily. The level of workmanship is excellent and the care taken in the finishing is again excellent.

The project came in on time and within budget despite having to work around some unforeseen issues. I am delighted with the work.

Green builders come with my highest recommendation."

"When we started looking for a builder to carry out our kitchen alterations we looked on for a local firm. Green Builders Sussex Ltd had excellent reviews and scores so after looking at their own website and photos of work completed we phoned them and invited Michael to visit our house and give us a quote.

From that initial phone call to Michael within a few days he had a full quote sent to us by email and we quickly instructed him as our builder.

Michael fills you with confidence with his knowledge and his communication is excellent from start to finish. Work started at the beginning of November 2015 and was scheduled to last 2 weeks. Michael and his team of sons arrived on the first day and completely finished the removal of walls, steelwork, plastering, and all gas, electrical and plumbing work 9 days later. Our house was left clean and tidy everyday with all
services still working.

All the team are punctual, hardworking, approachable and friendly. During the work we were able to discuss any issues that arose and Michael found ways to work around them.

The work was finished on time and on budget and we are delighted with our new kitchen/dining space.

We would recommend Michel Green and his team to anyone and we would be happy to answer any questions from prospective customers."
