We had a great experience working with Beautiful Basements! A great team with excellent communication from the beginning of the process to the end. Pricing was fair and accurate, coming in on budget. The workers were considerate and professional and got the job done in the time frame agreed. 10/10 would recommend.

Top quality professional building contractor which built a reinforced concrete basement for our house. Olly needs a haircut though!!!

Beautiful Basements built our new basement in 10 weeks without a single hitch. Very helpful and professional and bang on budget. Would recommend without hesitation.

Beautiful Basements built our new basement from the ground up with no problems and bang on budget. Really nice bunch of guys and all very knowledgeable about what they do.

The site was also kept nice and tidy so little disruption for neighbours. Highly recommended as basement specialists.

I work for Langton Homes Ltd and we asked Beautiful Basements to create a basement in a new build property.

We were very impressed with how professional they were and the excellent job they did. They worked very hard and through all weathers!

We would recommend them and will be using them again on other new builds.

We were very impressed with the way Andy and Rich executed the work in our cellar in 2012. They were totally professional in their approach to the job and we liked the fact that they communicated well with us at every stage and they explained everything to us each day.

We changed a few things along the way and this didn’t faze them in the least. They carried out all the work in a sympathetic way with the least amount of disruption to us and the rest of the house AND they cleaned up as they went along!!!

We were more than delighted with their skills and workmanship and we would recommend them highly to anyone considering having any work carried out in a basement or cellar.

Beautiful Basements waterproofed our new basement in 3 days flat! Great technical knowledge and the guys worked hard.

Even had their own portable WC for a 3 day job! Pricey but well worth it.

I’ve worked with Beautiful Basements on a few projects. They are experienced and their work quality is very good.

I also respect their approach to quoting, as they deliver fair and simple service.

I highly recommend their services.

Beautiful Basements built our basement from scratch. They took care of everything for us, from dealing with our architect, organising a structural engineer and designing a tailor made waterproofing system for it.

Their crew was highly professional and took care of the site and even the road outside very well, they even cleaned the road every week! The end result was fantastic and it was on time and they stuck to their pricing and budget perfectly.

I would highly recommend this company for any works, they made it all so easy for us.

Thanks Andy & team!
