All Aspects of Building and Maintenance

Customer Testimonials

Manorhouse Construction have done a few jobs for me. The most complicated was a side extension over a sewer. I have always found Steve Hancock very friendly, helpful but more importantly skilled and knowledgeable. He liaised well with the Building Inspector and the project was started and finished on time to a high standard and I would be happy to show the work and recommend him.

- Ken Graham, New Haw, Surrey

Steve has done various work on our property to an excellent standard. He is very honest and trustworthy and we have no problem with leaving at our property on his own. We won't use anyone else now that we have his number.

- Benjamin Ingham, Rowtown, Surrey

December 2014. We recently had Steve convert our garage into another room. I can;t begin to say how pleased my husband and I are, the room has turned out way above our expectations.  It took just over two weeks, all aspects of work have been done to an extremely high standard. The men he brought in to do the floor and electrics also did their work to a very high standard and when asked to do extra jobs around the house were more than happy to help out. I was very happy to leave keys with Steve and trusted him implicitly with working in my home without me being there. When the job was completed Steve cleared all rubbish from site and left the place as I would expect. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Steve and have actually passed his number on already, please feel free to get in touch if you'd like to see the room or get a verbal reference.

Many Thanks Steve for an excellent job.
With Thanks Pippa and Alan Cheung "

I chose Manorhouse Construction for a range of works ranging from paving, tiling, brickwork, painting and decorating as a direct result of seeing the quality of their work to a neighbour’s property. All works were conducted on time and on price and the finish was of a high standard and as specified. I would not hesitate to recommend Steve to anyone”

- Joss MacLeod, Putney, Surrey

We have known Steve and his family for many years. He has done extensive building works on our current property, a detached 90 year old cottage, which has been refurbished over the last three and a half years. We are one of his regular clients who return to Steve continually. Steve is hard working, trust-worthy, reliable and punctual. He has a wealth of knowledge, particularly of brickwork, but any job he knows he is unable to do satisfactorily he will know someone who can. We have no hesitation in recommending Steve to anyone who is considering using his services.

- Gillian Kite, Woking, Surrey

Steve has carried out work for me since 2008 on various projects. From a new build in Horsell to NHBC standard to renovation of our mill house in France. The only reason I can nor recommend him and his team is because he will not find time to do work for me. You will not find a more professional or amiable all round builder who will always go out of his way to make sure you end up with what you want. There is no more to say as Steve is a rare breed in his trade. 

- Daron Mitchell, Lakewood Briar Road, Send, Surrey

Steve carried out some work at our house in November 2014. We were very pleased with the quality of work and the overall professionalism. He was a very tidy worker and always made sure he kept us in the loop of what he was doing. We had no issues with leaving Steve at our property during the day and trusted him completely.  He is a genuine guy who does everything you ask for and more. We would have no problems recommending Steve as he is very good at what he does.

- Jo Vass-Gavin, Staines, Surrey, 

Steve originally built our extension in 2005 and has provided a very professional service, for a number of subsequent jobs, for a number of years. I have always found him knowledgeable, hard working and flexible in solving problems.

- Jeff Wright, Virginia Water, Surrey

Manorhouse Construction have just completed the insulation and plastering of our detached garage, which is being converted into a studio/workshop. The work undertaken by Steve was to a very high standard and we are very pleased with the quality and planning of the work which was completed to schedule. Steve has done work for us in the past and we would highly recommend him to any future prospective clients.

- Sean Howley, Cobham, Surrey

Being an owner of your own company is difficult as you always strive to ensure you give the customer the best you can and ensure you keep them informed at all times. Well, at last meet Manorhouse Construction. What can I say but, Great Great Great!! Its a pleasure to actually have a company that listens, does exactly what is asked, and even makes decisions on your behalf because they could not get hold of me (I was on holiday in Mexico at the time) They are very trust worthy, even liaised with my neighbour every day as they needed to access the rear of our property through the neighbours garden. We had both the drive and garden patio laid with new slabs and bricks. All works completed while we were away, and I am glad to say that Steve is doing extra works too. Next big job, roof and dormer insulation. Well done Steve, Michelle and the team. Its been a pleasure, and with hand on heart, you will be very happy with the quality and professionalism of Manorhouse Construction. Thanks John and Emma Martinez

Steve took on the project of finishing my extension. He project managed the work (electrics and plumbing) as well as completing the build and plastering himself. His work is of the highest standards and I can’t recommend him enough. He even did a few small jobs that just needed doing without charging me. He was always available to talk to and seemed to really care about what he was doing. He has a lot of qualities that are hard to find these days.
- David Stevens, Addlestone, Surrey
Steve and his team at Manorhouse carried out a large brick wall project in our garden this summer. It may sound like a straight forward job but we were very particular about the look we wanted to achieve and Steve helped us each step of the way to ensure our wall was a feature that was in keeping with our house. He helped us to source reclaimed materials and was not phased at all by using old bricks and cappings to make sure we got the finish we were hoping for. Steve and his team were hardworking, professional and polite and we really enjoyed having them around. Even our neighbours commented that they were the most hardworking builders they had come across! We are delighted with the finished wall which I am pleased to say was completed on time and on budget!

I cannot recommend Manorhouse Construction highly enough. The context – an extension at our house in Ashtead with 2 young children and a baby born mid build so it was never going to be easy! Steven is an extremely talented and highly skilled builder who can turn his hand to almost anything. He is incredibly knowledgeable and as such is great at problem solving and also gave great advice regarding design when asked. Steve’s workmanship is of the highest possible standard and he takes great pride in his work. His attention to detail is second to none. On top of this, Steve possesses a combination of characteristics very rarely seen within the trade. His communication was outstanding throughout the project, from first quote through to final snagging he always replied promptly to messages. During the build he kept us up to date on a daily basis and liaised well with the building inspector. He was very aware of the challenges of having young children around the house and worked flexibly around these. Steve is extremely efficient and adopts a highly proactive approach to his work – he took time to thoroughly plan the job at the very beginning to minimise disruption and always identified any decisions we had to make well in advance. Steve is a pleasure to have around the house. Nothing is too much trouble for him and he went above and beyond the call of duty on several occasions. He is completely honest and trustworthy, calm in nature and has a good sense of humour. Steve worked together with his colleague Barry who was also brilliant from start to finish. Behind the scenes, Steve’s wife Michelle works hard making Manorhouse Construction a highly professional and efficiently run business. Thank you for all your hard work and we look forward to working with you again in the future!

We are absolutely delighted with the work that Steve Hancock and his fabulous team at Manorhouse Construction have achieved! They turned our vision into a reality and we couldn't be happier with the results. Steve is extremely professional, polite and punctual, as are his team! All the boys, talented and skilled in their areas are trustworthy, fun and hard working. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they were always happy to go that extra mile to ensure we were happy and fully satisfied with the finished look. We love our new kitchen/dining area and lounge and would thoroughly recommend Manorhouse Construction to any of our family and friends ! Book them in advance though ... They get very busy 👍🏻 !

- Rachael Goldhawk, Wilson Drive, Ottershaw

Steve and his team were absolutely first class with their work on our house extension project, including interior changes and a new patio, despite our requirements changing part way through the build because the plans weren't quite up to scratch! Everyone was really friendly and professional, and Steve was brilliant at offering advice and tips when I had little or no clue. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Manorhouse Construction to anyone.

- James Harden, Godley Road, Byfleet

Having read through all the other glowing testimonials we can honestly say we agree with everything that has already been said. It's very rare you'll find a builder that ticks all the boxes but we certainly did with Manorhouse Construction - the best team in the business. From the moment we met Steve, recommended to us by an electrician we'd previously used (who had told us he would never normally recommend anyone), we had no doubts about using him. We were immensely lucky to get him as, unsurprisingly, they are booked up a year or more in advance. But good fortune was on our side as he had just had a client wishing to delay the second phase of their build which meant he had a 3 week window. True to his word Steve and his great work colleague Barry did the business and transformed the tired and dated bungalow to a little gem for us. They are really reliable hard workers, knowledgeable, proactive, polite, easy going and always punctual. Although our job doubled in size it did not phase them at all - they kept us calm and did a fabulous job. We so thank our lucky stars! Michelle, Steve's wife, completes the trio and deserves much credit as she keeps the wheels turning and follows up any concerns. We must now take our place in the queue but look forward to Steve and Barry working with us again. You will not find a better team anywhere. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Steve has done a magnificent job of a two storey front extension to our house. He tendered a price and gave a concise programme with staged payment. The job went very well with nothing but praise from the neighbours for his conscientious approach. He finished the project on time to an exceptionally high standard. I now have an extra large double room made out of the box room upstairs and a beautiful shower room with toilet and new entrance hall downstairs. I will definitely be using Manorhouse on future projects.

- Sean Burke, Gaveston Close, Byfleet

Steve recently did a new porch for us. Friendly service from start to finish. Work completed to a high standard. Very pleased. Would definitely use him again and recommend to others.
