    Dear John,

    Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your and Paul’s hard work for the wonderful basement conversion you have made...

    It looks even better than I had expected!

    I’m sure it will look even better once the rest of the furniture is in too...

    I’m also very grateful for all the “extras” you both threw in - it was very kind and considerate...

    Hopefully once the finances for the rest of the house are sorted I can look forward to working with you both again !

    Best wishes,

    All aspects of the build were dealt with promptly and professionally. Talented work force.
    I was at home throughout the build and they made every stage of the construction comfortable for me.
  • Jonathan D
    Professional extension completed to high standards. Just had a single storey extension built and a knock through of the kitchen. To provide a nice open plan living space, with Living room/dining room and new kitchen. Great friendly professional service throughout, with competitive rates compared against quotes received. The work has been finished to high standard and the site kept tidy over the period of building - Would definitely recommend.
  • Ali M
    Basement conversion. We had a very wet dull cellar converted into a lovely clean dry room (fully tanked) with a shower room. Everything was done to perfection...! All work started and finished on time and the project manager couldn’t be more professional and helpful.
    The price was also very reasonable...
    Strongly recommend them and would definitely use them again ...
    very happy customer!
  • Addy Newill
    A trusted and reliable contractor. We have used Bridgewater Developments over several years for carrying out property repairs and maintenance and are pleased to confirm that the Company is a trusted and reliable contractor.
    We have found them extremely professional and they have never let us down on dates or the work that they carried out. We fully intend to continue to use Bridgewater Developments for the foreseeable future as their work is excellent.
  • Orange Soap
    Our "go-to" guys.
    I have worked with Bridgewater Developments for a number of years at various letting Agents in and around Cheshire.

    Their work has been excellent and they have conducted themselves in a professional manner at all times. Landlords and tenants have been very happy with their work and they always leave the site in a clean and tidy condition

    They are super diverse and quick to respond to any given situation on quoting for a job which makes an agents live much easier! Very adaptable and can turn their hand to any workload.

    I really cannot recommend this company highly enough and would also advise that i passed them through to a longstanding client of mine who has a large portfolio of properties in the Timperley area, and they now use Bridgewater for all their maintenance work.

  • Black Bucket
    Five star company. We have worked with Bridgewater development on a range of maintenance issues for some time. We have always been impressed with the speed of their responses, the quality of the work and the value for money. Any feedback we have had from residence has always been positive and they seem to build up a really good rapport with the tenant and make a real effort to get to know the site.

  • Professional Company
    An assured choice company. I have been asked to provide a brief reference for Bridgewater. My dept. deals with properties which are in receivership, both tenanted and vacated.
    Bridgewater are on our panel of contractors and I can confirm that any quotes and works that have been completed have always been done in a timely manner and to a good standard. They have always been willing to go out of their way to assist us and to ensure that works are completed to our expectations.
  • Roger M
    Excellent - highly recommended
    Having used the company earlier in the year, we knew the standard of their work would be excellent, and we weren't disappointed.

    Their service and communication has been exemplary and the finished product very very pleasing.

    We had a large room with 2 ceilings re-plastered and painted. The finish on the plaster was superb as was the painting. Will definitely be using the company again!

  • Dan M
    Excellent service
    Would highly recommend. Provided quality work at a reasonable price. Kept informed the whole way. No nasty suprises, quote and eventual bill were bang on. Will use again.
  • Roger M
    Excellent work - Can highly recommend
    We decided to use this company going off the recommendations people had written about it on this site, and was so very glad we did!
    From start to finish the communication with the company was professional as is their workmanship.
    Jonny and his team kept us informed about the progress of the work and did an excellent job.
    We had a pipe that was leaking behind a concealed wall in the kitchen and to get access to it required part of the wall to be removed, replaced, plastered and painted.

    All this was done with little or no mess as they tidied up as they were going along. We also had a small amount of pointing done. All of which has been completed to a very high standard.

    Will definitely use this company again.

  • David M
    Excellent Full Service Firm
    Great company to work with. I am a landlord who lives a long way from many of my properties. I left this company to identify the work needed. They helped me to find the most economic way to achieve a great finish. They kept me informed as to progress. They also helped with things that weren't really part of the brief such as contacting letting agents and helping with viewings.
  • Emma O
    Highly recommended. We have used Bridgewater Developments a few times now for our property business and with own home, they have always been professional, friendly, tidy and trustworthy,
    They send out detailed quotes and explain the work being carried out step by step.
    I would certainly recommend them and I'll be using them again.
  • John M
    Remarkable professionalism, response time and attention to detail. We have had several jobs (pretty much full range of indoor and outdoor building work) as well as some project management and architectural design work done by/through the company in the past, most recently couple of weeks ago. The level of professionalism, the quality of work (always by the agreed deadline and at agreed price), the response time (even at very short notice) and the attention to detail were always truly remarkable. It was real pleasure working with both, John and Jonny, as well as with all their people.
  • Theresa D
    Very pleased!
    I hired John and his gang to do some renovation works on a house for a landlord - they were very quick to respond, provided a detailed quote -full of broken down costs, which was very helpful - and even provided me with an accurate timescale for the works to be completed.

    Whilst there, there were a few issues they found at the property that was in dire need of replacing, however they didnt hesitate to ask permission before they carried this out.

    As I work for a lettings agent, landlord permission is imperative before any work is carried out. They followed all procedures without issue - I definitely wouldn't hesitate to use these again!

    Worth every star!

  • Kirst78
    Guttering and reporting. Fairly prompt at responding to the query. Completed the work without any issues. Kept me informed throughout the work being completed, and completed the work to a good standard.
  • Michael C
    Efficient, flexible and high standard of work.
    Bridgewater Developments were hired by my landlord to do some work on my apartment. I can't fault them on their efficiency, quality of work and manner. The work was dragged out due to middlemen dragging their feet on the landlord side but they were always in contact ensuring everything was ok and when it came time for the work to be done they were very flexible and responsive around my working day.

    I would highly recommend these guys, very pleased with the work and service.

  • Colin W
    Excellent - highly recommended. We have used Bridgewater for three jobs (patio cleaning/repairs, damp repairs, decorating) in the last couple of months having seen the reviews on We had no prior contact with them nor any personal recommendations but decided to use them purely on the basis of these reviews having had poor experience with others in the last couple of years.
    Their service and communication has been exemplary and the finished product very very pleasing. Everything they said they would do they have done.

    Could not have been more pleased and will definitely use them again - highly recommended

    Many thanks

  • Realshaw
    Went the extra mile. I couldn't speak highly enough of the contact I've had with John and Jonny. Both have been very professional throughout the process of working with them and the phrase 'pride in your work' springs to mind. I needed some building repairs due to a leak from the apartment above mine. The job was completed to a very high standard, and I was kept well informed throughout the in-between period of first engagement and job commencement. I was impressed that when they first assessed the job, they worked with me to see how I could keep costs down - which I really appreciated. I'd also like to mention that they also helped me out with another niggling problem I'd had with my boiler. Which, although wasn't a big issue, they fixed it for a (very) minimal charge - something that would have cost me quite a lot more if I'd got a plumber out to see it. Would 100% use again.
  • Professional Company

    Highly recommended company. I have used Bridgewater Developments over the past years for all repair and maintenance work on my mother's house.

They even re hung our blinds and curtains for us. Highly recommended.

    I am glad that I found a company who was prepared to do structural work.

I found Bridgewater Developments to be very knowledgeable and they completed all the work on time and on budget.
