When the Coronavirus first came about, I was worried that I’d have to wait months in waiting to get the extension I’d saved up for. Luckily, I found Total Improvements online, and Wayne assured me they’d be able to carry out a safe and socially distant job pricing. After coming round and offering to do the job for an extremely reasonable price, about a week later they began work. At first, I thought that due to the virus and its effects on local trade, I’d be waiting weeks for the building to start, but to my surprise, all the materials arrived within a couple of days, and the lads started work immediately after. From the very outset, the lads updated me every morning on what they was doing (from a safe distance mind you) and the closest I ever got to them was leaving the kettle plugged it and the teabags and milk out next to it. 
I never had any issues with the staff, they respectably kept their distance from myself and my partner, and when the job was finished, I couldn’t have been happier with the immaculate state of the garden and the paving.
On their final day, they even asked if I wanted them to contact someone they worked with who specialised in tree stump removal to get rid off the huge stump that had been dominating my garden for the last year and a half. I took their recommendation, and now my garden is unrecognisable from its old self. A contractor that truly goes above and beyond in its efforts, cannot recommend them enough.

Hi Wayne just to thank you for the work you have just done for us. The garage is just what we wanted the team was very hard working and were out there whatever the weather we could not have asked for more, the work was efficient and the worksite kept very clean and safe. We could not have had a better result and would certainly recommend your services it is an excellent looking building.

Thank you

Pete & Brenda

We decided that we would like to make our downstairs into more of a family living area, so our plan was to extend the kitchen. We then decided that if we were going to have some disruption why not do everything we wanted in one go, so we decided to add a 4th bedroom above the kitchen extension, refurbish and modernise the family bathroom and then convert the garage into a storage area, cloakroom with downstairs toilet and utility room.

Total Improvements Ltd was one of the builders we got in touch with. Wayne came and discussed our needs, made suggestions and gave advice.

The job that Total Improvements took on had many complications; however, Wayne and his team took on each and every hurdle they encountered as a challenge. His team are friendly, respectful and hard workers. They worked quickly, kept mess and disruption to a minimum and were helpful ….nothing was too much trouble.

We were very fortunate with the weather; the job started middle of September and completed for the end of November. This included the added extra work that was not discussed in the original meeting as a few changes were made along the way.

The site was managed carefully and kept safe and clean during the time they were with us due to our dog, our daughter and the neighbor’s children in the area playing outside

We would not hesitate to recommend Wayne and his team. We are more than happy with the work done and its completion to an extremely high standard.

Thank you to Wayne and all of your team. It was a pleasure and fun meeting all of you.

I’d like to take this opportunity to comment upon the work on our extension Dining Room, which you recently completed for us on our property.
My expectations were high, as I had originally been made aware of your business based upon the recommendation of a neighbour for whom you had done similar work. Having seen the standard of the work done at my neighbour’s property i felt confident in requesting you to quote for my work.
I was pleasantly surprised with the manner in which you and your team dealt with the project. I was particularly impressed with the high standards demonstrated throughout the work, from your assistance with Planning, Management of the project completion of the work and friendly interaction with all of us.
Your team worked very professionally, and in a structured way. The work was well orchestrated, and completed on time and within the agreed budget. The site was well managed and kept surprisingly clean during works.

We were more than happy with aspects of the work done and especially with the finished article – it was completed to a standard we were more than happy with. I will have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone; it really was first class.
Many thanks for the excellent job; i look forward to using your services again should an opportunity arise in the future.

May I thank you on behalf of myself and my wife for the building and installation work carried out by your company in connection with the extensive renovations to our kitchen. We are both extremely pleased both by the quality of work carried out and the promptness in carrying it out. May I say that you have made the whole process stress free in the manor which you have undertaken to deal with all aspects from the conception to the execution. We found your friendly advice and recommendations particularly helpful. We will certainly be asking your company to carry out further work for us and we would have no reservations recommending you to others.

Wayne and crew built a front extension for us in May 2010, the extension comprises of a cloak room w/c and an extension to the living room. We are pleased with it and everybody who passes comments about how good it looks. Wayne and his crew came when he when he they would, they were a great set of lads. As we were there throughout the build, I was able to ask many questions as I wanted and everything was thoroughly explained to me. Many Thanks to them all.

Total Improvements Limited carried out a full scale refurbishment of our home after the 2007 floods. The refurbishment was completed quickly without quality being sacrificed. The work was to a very high standard. They are punctual, hard working and organised. Mr Bursell is always polite and courteous to deal with and we certainly recommend them.

We have known Wayne from Total Improvements Limited for some 25 years when he started as an apprentice joiner. He first worked for us providing maintenance for our rental properties. We bought a run down bungalow 18 months ago in Cottingham. We didn’t hesitate to ask Wayne for a quotation which included extensions, new roof, central heating system, UPVC windows, electrics, plastering, flooring, etc. His quote was within our budget and we asked him to proceed with the work. He recommended we hire an architect to draw up the plans and then he started work on our massive project. We paid him in stages. May I say my wife Sandra and I are very impressed with everything that has been done in the bungalow. We would not hesitate in recommending his company to anyone, we have been in the bungalow for 12 months now and not once have we had to ring him with any problems. We have suggested to him that if any prospective clients would like to see his workmanship to just call round and see for yourselves. 35 Canada Drive, Cottingham. Also may I add Wayne’s knowledge of building plans and regulations are second to none. Wayne was also able to recommend further tradesmen, such as a landscape gardener. Once again Wayne big thanks for a fantastic job.
