Merriman Road, Blackheath, SE3

"The finishes are beautiful, the workmanship is solid, the building work carried out with expert care. We asked Sentinel to renew and restore a small semi in Shooters Hill and design and build a large rear extension. What we've happily signed off is even better than we expected. That's not only because of the quality of the work. Throughout the process we were fully consulted about everything, and when we occasionally changed our minds we were met with patience and flexibility. All the workers were pleasant and easy to deal with and everyone - decorators, carpenters, builders - did a great job. Our project did suffer some delays, due to a double whammy of Covid and Brexit related supply issues; all the same, we are very contented clients. When you're choosing a builder to carry out a big building project it can be a bit daunting. Sentinel was able to show us some work at different stages of progress and that's what swung it for us. We're pleased it did."
