Wendy and I would like to express our thanks to you and your team for the first class job you have done with the refurbishing of our bungalow at the Fairway. Your company came highly recommended for design and quality of workmanship and we have not been disappointed. The extensive project has been managed and executed to our complete satisfaction and will have no hesitation in recommending you further. It could not have been easy for you as we were over two hundred miles away and infrequent visitors to the site and most communications by email.

I have been retired for ten years and moved back to Plymouth about seven years ago after the death of my wife. I bought a small two bedroom flat and needed someone to carry out a total refurbishment. I noticed a building firm working on a similar flat to mine in the area. I asked if I could look around and appreciated the quality of the work that was being carried out. The firm working on the building was Complete Works and I asked them for a quotation to carry out the work on my flat.
I went away for a month’s holiday whilst the work was being carried out. I had asked Andy McGowan, the owner of Complete Works, to design and provide the kitchen, wet room and toilet, build in furniture for the bedrooms as well as new doors and windows throughout. He organized the contractors, the carpets and the cleaning prior to my return.
I found Andy and his staff completely trustworthy, friendly and reliable, and would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone who wishes to have, not a cheap job, but one with a good knowledge and who is competent in all aspects of property renovation.
I moved again about six months ago and hired Complete Works to carry out another total refurbishment. I went away whilst the work was being carried out leaving a lot of my property in the house, and on my return my property was in an immaculate condition.

I recently contacted ‘Complete Works’ regarding some renovation to a 3 bedroom mid terraced house in the Milehouse area of Plymouth. It was my intention to let the property once work had been completed.
Due to the competitive quote I received from this company I appointed Mr Andrew McGowan (the owner) as project manager. A new kitchen and bathroom were installed along with a complete re-paint to the buildings interior. New carpet was also laid throughout. His team completed the project on time and within budget with the minimum of disruption. The overall end presentation was to a high standard and any problems encountered along the way were quickly resolved.
As I was going to rent the property I was also grateful for the legally required documents for this purpose compiled by Andrew. Indeed I was unaware of some of these regulations myself having not rented before.
I would thoroughly recommend ‘Complete Works’ to anyone else thinking about undertaking a similar project.

I recently commissioned ‘Complete Works’ for a building project I had been contemplating for quite some time. Having acquired the necessary architects drawings and the City Councils planning permission it was all systems go – or it should have been. I was rather nervous about choosing a decent builder and going ahead. 3 quotes and arranged meetings later I finally chose Andy. Right from the start his honest opinion and helpful advice eased my anxiety during my preparation for the works. I was having a bay window added to my breakfast room; the kitchen and bathroom were gutted. The 3 steps leading from the breakfast room down to my kitchen and bathroom areas were to be leveled using a suspended floor and ceilings made higher, with the bathroom one being demolished and replaced with a fiberglass flat roof.
The mess was kept to an absolute minimum and my safety paramount – all exposed areas being sealed and made safe at the end of every day. Andy was extremely helpful when it came to choosing and purchasing everything I needed, while keeping my colours and period of my house just as I’d hoped. Andy even took me out and about in his van choosing tiles and purchasing cast iron drain covers! Andy and his team were with me for 10 weeks and during the building works everything was discussed with me during each step of the project.
I definitely recommend ‘Complete Works’ for their honesty, dedication to the job, punctuality and cleanliness on site. I could quite happily go to work everyday knowing that on my return all was made good ready for the next day.
A brilliant team!

I employed ‘Complete Works’ to build an extension to my house with shower, toilet and hand basin. This was to provide my elderly mother in law with ensuite facilities on the ground floor.
All types of work were involved including construction, carpentry, plumbing, floor laying, concreting, plastering, electrics and replacing gutters. As can be imagined this was quite an upheaval for the household but Andy and John by their pleasant manners and consideration made it bearable.
I have been well satisfied with the way they went about their work, not wasting any time and working to a high standard with attention to detail.
I would have no hesitation in employing ‘Complete Works’ again and would recommend their services to others.
