A retaining wall, timber decking and roof work carried out. They kept to the original quotation and finished the job on time. I would recommend Ames Building Services to anybody looking for maintenance work to their property.

My intial concern was the quality of my apartment. I wanted to be certain the job would be done properly. I am extremely happy I chose this company. They turned my old dull apartment in to a modern home with a quality finish. Highly recommended.

I would recommend this company to anyone! They rebuilt my chimney stack and re-rendered my house. Great job Ames Building Services!

We contacted John for a quote on a new training room to be built and the refurbishment of our office rooms. We were happy with the quote and went ahead with the work. We are very happy with the final result. A good job done and we would use them again.

What an amazing building firm. I have used Ames Building Services on a number of occasions and they have done a superb job every time. They have never let me down, upped the price or finished late. Fantastic.

I am delighted with my loft conversion that Ames Building Services have done for me. I cannot stay out of there and my husband is over the moon too. They even cleaned up after themselves. I will be recommending John and the team to my family and friends.
