What our customers say

ALCO, under the guidance and leadership of Tom Allen, did a superb job in the renovation of my son and daughter’s house in Guildford. Everything was completed on time, to the required standard and within budget. Tom’s project management skills are excellent and he has a fine team of tradesmen supporting him. We were consulted at all stages of the project on progress and there were no surprises. A great team performance and I would highly recommend ALCO to anyone about to undertake a building project, large or small.

George Wilson

Tom (ALCO) provided many detailed quotes (and showed a lot of patience as the project changed as it went along) and delivered a good service and finish – particularly pleasing as most of the work was done without me being around. Any issues we did have were remedied quickly and Tom showed commitment to providing customer satisfaction.

Jane Muggeridge

ALCO have now done a few jobs for us ranging in size and price. Each time we find then to be reasonably priced, good communicators and a good standard of finish. Have recommended to a number of people who have all been positive.
