“Well, what can I say that hasn’t already been said. After 2 major building jobs, AP Builders are our first port of call for any construction or building projects. Professional, friendly, hard working and reliable, all to the most extremes of their profession. I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to recommend them to anyone. First class service from start to finish, consistently.”

James Pearson


“Excellent quality and the fullest consideration to the upheaval that new building brings. We wouldn’t have anyone else now. AP Builders is always our choice.”

Nick Wattam


“AP builders was recommended to me by a work colleague and from my first meeting with Adrian I was very impressed by his professional service and knowledge. Adrian was always on time to pre build meetings and I felt very comfortable in entrusting him to take on my loft and garage conversions, which lets face it was the biggest investments I had made since buying my house in the first place. Adrian is clearly a very experienced builder and was able to give practical advice and positive suggestions even at the planning stage of my project. I was given an excellent quote and schedule of works for my project and AP builders commenced work on the pre arranged date. This was really important to me as I am aware that some building firms fail to meet the agreed start date. Adrian and his team were excellent from day one and their work ethic was brilliant putting in long days and keeping the mess down to a minimum clearing up as they went. The quality of the work was outstanding and me and my family couldn’t be happier with the build which was completed to the agreed schedule. I even made some savings along the way (often identified by Adrian). I have since recommended AP builders to other friends and I know they also received the same level of service I did. I would highly recommend this firm for any projects large or small.”

“Having used AP Builders to modernise my kitchen a few years ago, I had no hesitation in using him for a recent more ambitious full refurbishment of the rest of my flat. Ady’s quote was sensible and the work he did was excellent. He managed the whole process and knew all the right tradesmen needed for plastering, electrical work etc. My flat now looks amazing! Ady was great to deal with, always willing to help and with a good sense of humour. Highly recommended.”

“AP Builders have recently completed a single-storey steel framed extension to our house in Spofforth. Though not a large project, it was not without its challenges, including building on ‘made ground’ (railway embankment), tying into existing structures that are at abnormal angles to each-other and have inconsistent floor levels, and working in atrocious weather conditions. In spite of these difficulties, Ady and his team have delivered a first class project, on time and budget. The build quality is exemplary and consistent with their refreshingly old-school approach to hard work and attention to detail, combined with bang up to date methods of construction. I’d heartily recommend AP Builders to anyone.”

“We were first put in touch with A.P Builders by our workshop manager who had a double storey extension built the previous 6 months to us needing a revamp of our premises in Knaresborough. We were told Ady and his team were highly skilled tradesmen who were reliable, fast and friendly builders who always kept a clean job and respected the wishes of the customer, we are happy to say all of this we found to be true and are happy to say Ady is our builder of choice for the Vantage Toyota group.”

“Struggling to find a reliable tradesman to build my extension was causing sleepless nights until two separate people recommended I use Ady. My first step was to meet up and go through the plans then get a quote , ( which only took a week to arrive on my doorstep ) . I found the price below my expected budget and found his knowledge of building was very high, My wife and I had no hesitation hiring Ady to build the extension and are very pleased the job came in on budget and the standard of work was above and beyond our expectations of what we expected. We would be more than happy to use A.p Builders again and recommend them to anyone.”

“I am just writing to thank you for converting my garage in to a room, you have done an excellent job and I am very pleased with the work you have carried out for me. I would also like to say how easy it was to communicate with you which made the whole job a more enjoyable experience than I have had with previous builders.”

Alf Gill


“A.P.Builders proved to be honest, trustworthy and reliable. The project was well managed and completed in good time, despite poor weather. Materials were carefully selected and all aspects of the build were carried out professionally and with great attention to detail. We were delighted with the finished result and the way the new porch fits in with the original front elevation.”

Tom Petts


“Good reliable tradesmen are exceptionally hard to find, and when planning on spending thousands on house renovations it is imperative that you get quality, reliability, honest and a company or individual with a strong work ethic. This is how I would describe AP Builders. Adrian Phillips and his associates have completed the following work:- Garage conversion to an integral play room, Utility room, En-suite, bathroom and down stairs cloak room redevelopment, Kitchen, lounge, conservatory works, Outdoor lean-to storage shed. Each time the work has been completed on time, within budget and has represented excellent value for money. If you require any building or remodelling work on any scale, I would not hesitate to recommend AP Builders. I would never use anyone else – FACT”

Damon Dover


“I chose APBuilders from a few recommendations and was pleasantly surprised to say the least. Expecting the normal Monday to Friday, 9-5 workers, Ady and his team proved to work well beyond my expectations. Efficient, professional, polite and courteous and always putting the customer first. They were on site early each morning and worked through till late into the evenings, and always tried to keep disruption to a minimal. Ady also kept me informed of the progress each day, adapting and resolving any problems as and when they occurred. The workmanship is of a high standard and I would fully recommend APBuilders, and I wish them all the best for the future as they are hardworking honest people who deserve to succeed in life.”


“Dear AP. Thank you so much for all your hard work regarding our extension we are very happy with the end result and cannot thank you enough for your help in putting us in touch with all the relevant people architects building officials etc we would not have known where to start had it not been for yourself. Myself and my husband would have been very unhappy moving from our long time home just because of our age and finding the stairs more difficult. Now because of the wonderful ground floor extension you have erected we can now continue living here. Friends and family are all envious of the work that you have done for us and I feel sure that you will be getting a call from one or two of them. Please convey our thanks to your happy cheerful work force who kept us smiling through the worst of the dust and rubble. We wish you every success in the future and will certainly recommend you”

“Dear Ady, Our house is now completed and I felt that I had to write and thank you and your team for the superb extension you added to our home. You came on time, you finished on time and throughout it all your attention to detail was commendable. Please pass on my thanks to your team who turned up every day even in the pouring rain! I will happily recommend you to anyone needing a builder, you are now the only builder I will consider for future needs. Again many many thanks”
