Satisfied customers, have a say!


Ask provided a complete and professional service which was timely and competitively priced. We were very pleased.

We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you. Our builder only had good words to say about you too.

A very prompt service, thus affording no delays to the work, offering helpful suggestions when build-ability issues arose.

I thought every member of staff I dealt with were very polite, helpful & professional. I would highly recommend to my friends and family.
