" Chris Ackrill completed a major refit of my kitchen, the work included designing the new kitchen, extending into the garage, a new floor, electrical, gas and waterworks, fitting the new kitchen and decorating."
"Chris managed the project very efficiently, everyone turned up on time and there where no delays. This took away the worry often associated with this type of work. In addition, I was given good advice when asked."
"The quality of the workmanship was excellent and everyone involved was friendly and helpful. I would have no hesitation in Recommending C Akrill and Son."

 "After extensive research, I finally settled on Chris Ackrill to re-fit our main bathroom, which also included external drain and stack replacement.  The work involved walls and the ceiling being re-plastered, with new flooring fitted, the room was tiled floor to ceiling, as well as the fitting of a new bath, toilet, washbasin and shower. The external work was all at the rear of the house, and with no direct access from the front we decided the best option was to arrange for the work to be completed whilst we were on holiday.
We was very impressed with the finished result, the quality of the workman ship was excellent, everything was completed before our return, and the house cleaned afterwards, with all waste materials removed. "

"We have and will continue to recommend Chris Ackrill whenever asked."

   "I have reached the point where decorating is no longer possible due to poor health, and I know use Chris Ackrill on a regular basis for all our painting and decorating. I have never had a problem, and always charged a reasonable rate." S Srivesta

"My wife and I work so it is especially important to us that we use a builder on whom we can rely. A neighbour who has exacting standards referred us to Chris Ackrill and we reasoned that if Chris could keep her happy they would be more than sufficient for our needs"

"We have always found them to be most reliable, always turning up when they said they would and has always been very careful not to leave a mess. They have given us a good advice, even if it resulted in less work for them and they have never been daunted by unusual problems."

"Chris takes pride in their work and has an excellent reputation in Old Town, Swindon which has been built up over a long period of time."

 "My client wished to update the property whilst retaining as much as possible the original character.
Throughout the project I have liaised closely with Chris on all aspects of the work which have included an extension to the kitchen, new bathrooms, replacement windows, underfloor heating, complete rewiring, refurbishment of beams and fireplaces, complete redecoration, and new terraces, porch and driveway.
Design Challenges are usually responded with 'lets give it a go' and we have always found a solution that satisfies the brief.
I am happy to recommend C Ackrill and Son as a building company that I have found to be reliable and easy to work with and who keeps my clients happy."

 Chris has been involved in carrying out our small and medium sized building & refurbishment projects and we have found Chris to be very flexible, responsive and cost effective. For an organisation such as ours it is very important that suppliers and contractors are aware of the environment in which we have to work and give due consideration to patients, their families and their friends. Chris and his team members consistently demonstrate how conscious they are of this during all project work. Prospect Hospice
