To John Thomson and the Tidybuild team we are delighted with the completed finish to the works carried out on our house this year. We embarked on a project of what a lot of people described as “crazy” to do whilst our family of 5 continued to stay in the house. The organised and speedy progress Tidybuild made meant the project was completed around us, and at every stage consideration was given to… us and the safety of our young children as walls were knocked down and our home was rebuilt (and they really are Tidy!)

Our bungalow was transformed by adding a dormer window which allowed us 3 bedrooms in the attic. Our existing stair was removed and a new stair built at the other end of the house. A landing area and upstairs shower room was added upstairs as well. We added a sunroom and knocked the wall down between the kitchen and playroom to create a large open plan family kitchen/dining/sitting area.

The existing bathroom was altered to become our en-suite and what was a bedroom downstairs became a large family bathroom.

We have dealt with builders in the past and it was important to us from the start that whichever company we chose to do the work, could offer us great service (Tidybuild’s customer service is remarkable), keep to our agreed budget (there were absolutely no hidden costs), and carry out the work to a finished high standard (from the electrician, plumber, painter, to the joiners, each of the team were highly skilled tradesmen who took a pride in the finish of their work).

Every room in our home at some stage in the project had building work carried out in it from beams insterted across the whole width of the house to walls knocked down and rebuilt elsewhere. It was transformed in the most professional and courteous manner we could have hoped from each and every one of the Tidybuild team. They turned our “crazy” project into our dream home which I’m told will be having no more work done to it… for now!

A satisfied customer writes – if you’re paranoid about being ripped off by cowboy builders and the like then get Tidybuild in. I had a problematical job (a bathroom refit/plumbing upgrade in a tenement flat older than Bruce Forsyth) and Tidybuild got the job done without any nonsense. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions – I’ll be using Tidybuild’s service again soon.

Just to say thanks to all the team for their the hard work and effort on completing the extension both within budget and on time. It gave me a lot of confidence from start to finish to see a plan develop from the drawing stage(thank your architect )to completion.Many thanks to John for guiding me through the process.
thanks again

I got this company to build the patio in my back garden.

From start to finish everything was great, the workers knew their stuff, they even left the place as clean as could be.

I found them very good and stress free to deal with, I even got a quote for a loft conversion while they were doing the patio, the quote is very reasonable (as was the patio quote too), will consider it nearer the time when I am ready to get the work done.

I would recommend this company to anyone needing work done, great job.

Extremely pleased with the recent work completed on my leaking conservatory. In the early stages, John provided clear options and advice and engaged an architect on our behalf. I particularly liked his no pressure style and allowing us time to consider the proposals. Once we had decided, John project-managed the work from end to end and was always available to consult with and answer as many questions as we liked. Throughout the build the tradesmen were polite, trustworthy and completed an excellent job and most of all were extremely tidy as they completed each stage of the job. I now have a lovely sunroom with a proper roof and can't believe the transformation.

I had a job in the house that I had wanted done for over a year. However working full time and needing to find a plasterer, joiner and electrician I just didn’t have the time to source and manage all aspects of the work.

I then met John and the job was done within a week of our first meeting! Everything was taken care of. The tradesmen came and went with no disruption to myself and even cleaned up after themselves!

I cannot thank John and his guys enough for their help. If it hadn’t been for them I have no doubt that another year would have gone past and I would have made no progress.

Thank you!

As a female I was very weary about getting any builders company in to do any work never mind a parking area, but I was told about tidybuild by word of mouth from a friend and also seen them on this site, called them, liked the quote, then got the work done, I must say I am very pleased with the whole job, seems to be a very good job, and the best part is that he was one of the cheaper quotes .

I felt very comfortable with the company and did not feel pressured or anything like that, I would and will be calling them again, more than happy

Tidybuild provided me with project management of all trades and delivered the complete renovation of my house within time and without a nervous breakdown dispite all the unforseen hidden nightmares of damp and rot lurking beneath the surface. Being a single 30 something I thought I might get ripped off but I went on a reference visit to another young lady in similar situation and that gave me and my folks piece of mind that Tidybuild were the right guys for the job.
The house needed rotten chimneys removed, rotten back porch demolished, new roof, full insulation of the loft, complete rewiring, replacing the heating system, plastering and decroating throughout, new kitchen, new bathroom suite, installation of en suite upstairs plus new external render.
Johns team of tradesmen started demolition work in January and I moved in early April… Considering the work required the timescale was brilliant.

The transformation of my old shell of building to this brand new state of the art nursery is simply amazing, have a look at the photos and you will see for yourself.

From architects to planning people, John @ Tidybuild had everything covered, there was never any problems that had me concerned at all.

I say again, just have a look at the photos , they speak for themself.

thanks John & tidybuild team.

I would not hesitate to recommend John and his team. The work went very smoothly.

John arrived as arranged to discuss the job – the tradesmen arrived on time as arranged – they got on with the job and tidied up at the end of each day – the job was finished on time – there were no additional costs – and all the rubble etc. was removed from the site.

We are happy with the job and would use John and his team again.

Tidybuild were very helpful from the start of my garage conversion project, even before they were given to job they suggested alternatives to my original design to maximise the potential of the space, thus creating a fantastic living/dining area.

Not being in the building trade it was a real bonus to find a company that were willing to answer any questions I had – no matter how silly they seemed – and reasure me throughout the project.

My garage conversion and extension was completed in time for my daughter’s first day at school – big bonus points with my wife!

Everyone who has visited my house since the conversion have been very impressed with the design and finish supplied by John and his team.

I would recommend Tidybuild to anyone wanting a reliable, hardworking and pleasant team if builders to work in their home.

I have just had my driveway paved by Tidybuild and they have made an excellent job of it.
I had 4 quotes for the job but in the end choose Tidybuild (although not the cheapest) John Thomson spent a lot of time going over the project and I felt more comfortable and assured that he and his team would deliver a quality job which in the end proved to be the case.
John was on site at least twice each day ensuring things were going to plan and dealing with any minor issues. The job was started on time and finished according to the schedule we had discussed.
It is refreshing to know that there are builders out there who you can trust to carry out a quality job; Tidybuild is certainly one of them.

Tidybuild were recommended by a friend and we were very happy with our loft conversion. Our plans had been drawn up, prior to engaging Tidybuild, however, after discussing plans with John, we changed a few aspects on their advice, which we had not thought was possible. This increased space upstairs which has worked very well. Good communication throughout from John and Stuart and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend and use their services again.

Retaining Boundary Wall

I had six contractors tender and suggest solutions for the work required.
I was most impressed by Tidybuild – not only the advice being given but also confident that the job would be “hassle free” and should any issues arise they would easily be resolved.

Extremely pleased with the work John’s team did on the wall. I believe I now have the “Great Wall of Crookston”
It was a pleasure to deal with John and his team. I would certainly use Tidybuild again.


Very happy with service received from pre-planning stages through to construction with Tidybuild. Amount of time spent by John and Stuart even prior to work commencing discussing options and what we wanted was invaluable.

Work carried out to build extension on rear of house, knock through kitchen wall into dining room, construct new shower room downstairs, renovate upstairs bathroom and rebuild front porch.

The professionalism, knowledge, quality and approachability of all employees were very high indeed and helped us gain the result we wanted from the outset.
Being in a mid-terraced house I was concerned with building works and affects on our immediate neighbours. However both neighbours have commented on the consideration and work ethic of the builders.

Delighted with the finished build and would recommend Tidybuild to anyone – already have!

John and his team done a wonderful job by transforming your kitchen. The quality of workmanship is great. John is professional, friendly and reliable. Would definitely contact John and his team for our future project.

I found John very easy to deal with and trusted the advice he gave.

Professional service and happy with the standard of work done with our chimney and wall repairs.

Tidybuild were recommended by 2 of our neighbours who had extentions built. Work was carried out to budget, to a good standard of workmanship and our home was respected.
John and his team were very approachable. We were kept up-dated and encouraged to discuss progress.
Work was completed 2 months ago and we have had no reason to contact John regarding any problems.
We have recommended Tidybuild and will continue to do so.

I work for a large Manufacturing Company in glasgow and we regularly need to maintan our bulidings. I always get 3 quote for all jobs but John was the first person to give freely genuine good information and listen to our needs. We have used tidybuild for large industial concrete work and to build internal offices.
I would have no hesitation in recomending Tidybuild.

My House Extension.

Job made very straight forward, John and his men made a great effort to carry out the work as quickly and with as little disruption as possible to me or my home.

I would use this company again.

Tidybuild were recommended to us by a colleague and on first meeting we were impressed by the knowledge, experience and advice given to us by John. Quick and thorough replacement of supporting beams in open plan kitchen/living room area from plan stage to completion. John and his team were timely, efficient and considerate of family living during the construction process. Johns team always left the house in a spick and span condition at the end of the day. We would highly recommend Tidybuild. We will definitely use Tidybuild Services in the future.

Had three builders visit regarding small rear extension right away John seemed to be more knowledgeable and In sync with what we required . From start to finish john and his team where first class- project managed and led us through the project getting us to not rush decisions and advised us on ways to get the best out of the space we where adding. Really can't recommend this company highly enough-

We chose Tidybuild to build our extension and carry out internal alterations after recommendations from friends.
The work was carried out on time and to budget and to a good standard of workmanship: John and his team were very approachable and kept us well informed throughout the build and swiftly dealt with any problems that arose.
Disruption to our neighbours was kept to a minimum which was really important to us as we like on an open plan estate. The site was kept tidy and workman cleared up after themselves on a daily basis.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Tidybuild.
