"Simon was recommended to us by our door and window supplier The Panoramic Door Company (PDC). This was after I explained we had been less than impressed with some builders we had approached. PDC said they had worked with Simon on several occasions and that they found both Simon and his Team (Flint) were very professional and approachable. This certainly turned out to be true. Simon arrived with a smile and a very friendly attituded which lasted throughout the project, despite: unforeseen issues, additional requirements! and horrendous wet and windy weather. At the start it was explained that Flint were neither the cheapest nor the dearest and that they had an open book policy. This worked well for both parties throughout. Good relationships were maintained and negotiations accepted. When it came to Barry and his team from PDC working with Macer and Robo to measure up and fit the windows, Bi-folds and Roof-light, it was a pleasure to watch and receive the confidence of a quality job. Similarly, the same applied to Macer’s co-ordination and working relationship with the Roofers, Electricians and Plumbers. Macer and Robbo’s daily time keeping and smart vans were most impressive, receiving pleasant comments from both neighbours and other tradesmen. An excellent reflection on Simon and his company. We would have no hesitation on recommending Simon and the Team at Flint." - Mr & Mrs O'Sullivan - June 2020
"We chose Flint based on Simon in the first instance, we felt his expertise and approach was very credible and we liked the fact that the guys on site were employed by him. It has always felt like our project was a partnership between us and Flint. The onsite team were excellent, and they managed the 8-month job professionally, as well as navigating the family as we were living in the house at the time. Care and attention to the build detail has been impressive, as has their approach to dealing with neighbours and managing the inevitable emotions that arise when you are living in a building site. Having had some experience with construction, I am pleased to recommend Flint as a team and they should be highest on your consideration list. I will use them again in the future. Needless to say, we are very pleased with the quality of the build." - Mr & Mrs Anthony - April 2020
"Id like to state that we’ve both enjoyed working with you and we were extremely happy with Macer and Robbo, clearly very skilled but also very committed to the job, punctual, good fun but very professional in all respects; they were a pleasure to have in the house and we both think the standard of their work was to an extremely high standard. Really pleased and highly recommend them." - Mrs & Mrs Bishop - March 2020
"Absolutely delighted with the finished result. Flint worked for several months, re-roofing, re-building etc whilst it was still inhabited and in sometimes taxing conditions. The in-house team were a delight – tidy, professional and nothing was too much trouble. I am thrilled with everything they did and can’t thank them enough. What a transformation to the cottage." - Mrs Fyson - January 2020
"I take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the very efficient, tidy and courteous manner in which the works undertaken and completed well within the estimated time period. I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to others." - Mr M Gleeson - September 2019
"From beginning to the end of working with Simon & team on our link extension it has been a pleasure. Simon was very professional & provided an in depth quote, which impressed us from the start. Kept us updated with pricing as we went along. Also when ever there was a problem he kept us informed ( as often there is on a building project, small or large ). The Flint team, Macer & Robbo that worked here for 3months were a pleasure to have around. They were on time everyday & at the end of everyday they would tidy up. They helped make life as easy as possible when having a kitchen demolished, keeping us informed about our appliances, when we were going to be without. Which was a great help. The quality of their work is really good (they seem to take real pride in it). Anyone thinking of having work done we would & have recommended Flint Property Group. The whole building thing is a scary time & they all made it as easy as they could & we now love our new extension. Thank you Simon, Macer & Robbo."- Ms C Turner - August 2019
"What’s not to like about Flint……?
Err, nothing. What’s there to like about Flint? Everything. From the start, the polite speculative letter from Simon asking if he could be considered in the quotation process for our extension project piqued my interest; normally, letters of that ilk receive short shrift. But the way it was written,led to a first meeting and like all other meeting that followed it adopted the same approach. Friendly, professional and setting things up to meet (and sometimes exceed) my expectation. When it came to the final choice of 2 builders in the competition, Simon was slightly the more expensive. However, he was willing to discuss price and we agreed a way forward. And he stuck to the agreed price. (variations excluded of course). There were no promises of early starts; his order book was full and precluded a ‘I can just fit you in’ type of conversation. That in itself would have worried me and it was reassuring that the order book was full. The best bit though, was that they started when they said they would! Once on site, the team were excellent. Polite to a fault, engaging, timely and adaptable to our needs. As a team, Flint communicated extremely well throughout the build. That also included our neighbours with whom they kept up a timely dialogue to ensure they were aware of what was happening. The quality of the construction was second to none and the team had a real eye for detail and ‘just getting it right’. They clearly took pride in doing the right thing. Simon came to site every day to make sure that things were going well and made sure that we were content with how things were progressing. Where I had reservations about some of the subcontractors Simon went out of his way to ensure alternatives were provided. If I could take one example to highlight their conscientious approach. I had a brief medical issue that potentially required a trip to the hospital. The builders were very concerned and offered to take our dog out during their lunchbreak so my wife did not have to worry about it. So, to go back to the original comment, ‘What’s not to like about Flint?’ The answer remains, nothing. The best building company I have ever had in my house." - Mr & Mrs Meridew - July 2019.
"Hi Simon, it was great to receive your quote and really opened up my eyes to the work involved to do a proper job. I have to say thanks to your very professional approach and detail which has enabled me to make a clear decision." - Mr C Evans – June 2019.
"Flint are the 4th firm of builders we have ever dealt with and they are simply the best. They turned up when they said they would and finished on the day they said they would – how impressive is that? Des, Macer and Robbo arrived every morning before 8 and were ready to start work at 8am, they remained on site every day until, after cleaning up, they left about 4.45/5pm. Anything they needed either arrived on site via delivery lorries or was brought to site by Simon. They all took immense pride in their work and were happy to advise us or to tell us that they didn’t agree with what we proposed and why and make alternative suggestions (they even came up with ideas for things we hadn’t even considered) all of which we found very helpful. We were fortunate in that there were very few unforeseen issues but those that arose were explained to us and solutions presented. They were then dealt with quickly and efficiently. Nothing was too much trouble and all the guys were a pleasure to have on site. Simon updated us on the financial position every Friday morning. We are delighted with the finished product and would happily recommend them to anyone and will use them again if the opportunity ever presents itself." - Mr & Mrs Wilson - May 2019
"Flint Property uses a slogan “… a fresh approach to your building project.” This is apt. The project from the beginning was undertaken with communication and clarity at its heart. Simon, the Company Director, helped us develop our ideas and kept us informed of progress, and difficulty, at every step. Unfortunately, our house had significant failings that were hidden at the time of commencing its refurbishment; once discovered, we were shown where and why structures were unsound and offered plans for their rectification. Simon acted on our behalf with the suppliers of various materials and services; he negotiated more favourable terms for delivery dates and discounts than we could ever have achieved. In all areas there was transparency.
Importantly, Simon’s team are also first rate. Masters of their craft, the quality of their work is excellent. Moreover, while significant home improvement is intrusive, the Flint Property team are unfailingly polite and always willing to explain the process. They were supremely flexible in adjusting the order of work to allow household priorities to continue. At the end of each day they would ensure that they would leave the house as tidy as possible. We are very happy with the results of the work." - Mr & Mrs Jacobs, January 2019
“I have no problem recommending Flint Property Group to anyone seeking a builder recommendation and will be very happy to work with you again. Our extension build is of excellent quality and has exceeded expectations with regards to engineering quality, the skill of the onsite team, and the use of specialists at no extra cost, such as the engineer and the window fitters. I have at no point throughout the process had any cause for concern with regards to the build quality, with the building inspector commenting on this, and that some aspects are actually over-engineered. Communication has been excellent. It has been in contrast to previous building-works experience to deal with a professional who communicates via email and phone, in a manner in which I am used to in my own corporate environment. Wishing Flint Property Group every success going forward.” – Mr Tucker, November 2018
"I have had dealings with Mr Simon Walker of Flint Property Group Ltd. over the past couple of months concerning a proposed house extension building project. From the outset he has been extremely solicitous and always true to his word. He laid out in very clear terms his plan for tackling our request for a quotation, giving definite dates in advance for when he would present us with a) a general estimate, b) a more detailed and definite estimate and finally a very thorough ten-page breakdown of all the costs so that we would know exactly what we would have to pay. He kept precisely to those dates and subsequently he has communicated with us in an efficient and planned manner, gaining our trust and considerable respect. Finally, he gave us in printed form a series of promises, verifiable in the future, of how he would operate in carrying out the proposed work. I have no doubt about his integrity and that he would work efficiently in the customer's best interests. I wish him every success." - Alun Roberts, October 2018
"Very thorough and thoughtful service from Simon and his team. Would recommend to anyone and be very happy to work with him again." - Joseph Green, October 2018
"I never thought that I would write a testimony for a builder but having recently dealt with Simon Walker of Flint Property Services I decided one was well deserved. Throughout my dealings with Simon he was courteous, proactive and totally professional. On the day I received my Planning Permission he placed a business card and introduction through my door. Far from being shoovey he was the exact opposite. He spent considerable time with me getting to understand my requirements and explaining my options and the process. Simon mapped out a whole schedule of works in detail and once I had selected my requirement he priced up each aspect of the work involved. At all times he told me his timescales and he delivered to them. I was disappointed that I could not use Simon for the project due to the fact that I wanted to work to start almost immediately and Simon already had work booked in. When I explained why I was not using him I was still met with the same courteous, kind professional manner he always displays. Good luck Simon, good luck Flint Property Group, it was a privilege to meet you." - Glenn Wright, August 2018
"I would highly recommend Simon and his team. They are a very reliable building firm with very high standards. Simon and his team work efficiently and provided us with exceptional service throughout the project. They are always punctual, effective and considerate with the task we set for them. Simon was very open with the project detail allowing us to review the options available as the project progressed. In all, I would highly recommend Flint's as your chosen builder. They give the industry an excellent presence with trustworthy service, it's a shame that other builders don't follow their work ethic. I trust this provides you with the reassurance you require to proceed with Simon and his team." - Mr Wolton, June 2018
"Hi Simon, Will have a look at the plans this evening but just wanted to thank you for your prompt work. It sounds very reasonable, I can't wait to have a good look at what you have proposed. Many Thanks. Victoria " - May 2018
"The whole experience working with Flint was made easy from the outset with clear communication, transparency and a fabulous ‘can do’ approach. It became apparent very quickly that Flint are interested in understanding our requirements and were able to offer creative options to support our needs. Flint is run by experienced, professional and qualified individuals. The Flint Team working at our home were efficient, reliable and unbelievably tidy in all aspects of the build. The quality of our project is outstanding and we would highly recommend Flint for future build requirements. Great work – thank you, and we’ll be in touch for our next project very soon!" - Mr & Mrs Lanksford - July 2020
