“I came across Rich after several quotes from various builders for my self-build. What set him apart was his keen eye for detail, a tenacious attitude, listened to my requirements & more importantly, Rich approached my project with a can-do attitude.
His experience across the building trade and strong relationships with his subcontractors allowed me to complete my self-build within my time frame and budget. A gentleman who knows his craft well. Thanks for making it a pleasurable experience.”

Single-Storey Side Extension, Internal Alterations, and New-Build Double Garage
“We commissioned Whites Building LTD to do our side extension and garage following a recommendation from our architect. The work was completed within the time specified and carried out with minimum fuss and mess. The price was very competitive, and the work was completed to a very high standard. Would not hesitate to use Whites Building LTD in the future.”

Double-Storey Side Extension
Double extension to domestic property at 30 Ox Street, Gornal, a stone-built property, constructed in 1842. The block of 4 terraced houses was constructed in 1842 and locally referred to as the ‘salt seller’s cottages’. In 1995 all 4 properties were brought up to modern regulations, including DPC, cavity insulation, re-roofing, and rewiring.
“Having purchased the end property of the block in 2005 I used Richard who built a double extension to the side of my property. The works were carried out during the summer months. Having known Richard for a few years and based on a good recommendation, I decided to use Richard and his team to carry out the works.
The extension to the property was to be constructed in traditional brickwork, comprising inner-skin blockwork and outer-skin brickwork, 300mm thick with fully ties and insulated cavity. The size of the double-storey extension was approximately 3.90 m wide x 8.80 m long.
The bricks used were a ‘Carondale Bracken Smooth’, as requested by building control to tie in with the rendered face of the existing house and to offer a sympathetic match to the block of houses.
Richard and his team carried out the setting out, and first lift of brickwork over 2 days, which allowed me to install the first-floor joists. On the second visit, Richard and his team built from the first floor up to roof eaves, which again allowed me to install the ceiling joists.
A third visit allowed the final cut-in of the gable to complete the brickwork. All works were complete working around myself, for around 6 weeks.
Richard and his team (4 lads) carried out the works very efficiently, and all of the team were extremely polite and hard working. During the works, the area was kept clean and tidy throughout.
The Building Inspector also passed comment on the brickwork being very neat.
I would highly recommend Richard to carry out extension works and found his price to me to be very competitive and good value for money.”

Double-Storey Side Extension and Single-Storey Rear Extension
“We purchased an older house and needed quite a substantial extension which we knew would be testing due to our foundations and neighbouring wall. Whites Building Ltd could not have been more helpful from start to finish. Richard sat with us right at the start during the quotation phase and discussed all of the options available to us in a way that we understood.
The costs were explained to us and nothing started until we were happy to go. During the build, we had various issues with our property which were unplanned and could not have been foreseen, during what I would have thought would be a stressful time Rich talked us through any issues and handled any problems that we had. He and his staff were polite and took pride in their work by keeping things clean and tidy throughout and at the end of their working day.
I would not hesitate at all in using Whites Building Ltd again and would be more than happy to talk to any future customers to put their minds at ease regarding what should be (but isn’t) a stressful process.”

Rear Double-Storey Extension and House Renovation
“I used Richard for a single-storey rear extension at my parents’ house in 2013. He did an excellent job and as a result, I used him again in 2014 to fully renovate my own house from top to bottom in 2014. I found him to be very professional throughout both builds and his pricing was very fair and competitive with other quotes I had at the time.
He gave me regular updates on site progress throughout the week. He finished both jobs on time as promised and set out a clear payment schedule. He took time to understand my needs throughout the build and was friendly and personable making him very easy to deal with. This helped to greatly reduce the stress of both of the build projects.
I would highly recommend him to anyone considering a renovation/build project no matter of the size.”

Single-Storey Side Extension
“Richard and his team were extremely professional and delivered on time. Very fair, frank, and honest when they built our 28-foot extension at the side of the house.”
Mr Patel – Walsall, West Midlands
Double-Storey Side and Single-Storey Rear
“We approached Whites Building Ltd in 2015 to carry out a single storey extension Rich and his team were very professional and carried out the work to a very high standard. They kept everywhere tidy and finished the project on schedule.
Because of our positive experience with Whites Building Ltd we had no hesitation in getting them to build us a double-storey side and single-storey rear at our new address in 2020.
Again, we are over the moon with the workmanship and quality of the work that took place throughout the whole project. I would definitely recommend Whites Building LTD for works of this kind.”
