Standards? What standards?

(Last year 8,765 complaints were made to Trading Standards about dodgy builders)

The rise of TV shows like Cowboy Builders; DIY SOS; Bad Builders: Bang To Rights; Rogue Traders; Don’t Get Done, Get Dom; and Watchdog shows just how bad the situation is. The trouble is that literally anyone can call themselves a builder and start a business. And with such large amounts of money involved, often cash-in-hand, the opportunity can prove irresistible to conmen, cowboys and criminals. Consumers often lack the knowledge to know what they’re buying and to adequately protect themselves, and this makes them perfect targets.

Of course not all cowboy builders have criminal intentions; some are simply incompetent or, at best, unprofessional. But this isn’t good enough either! Customers are spending huge amounts of their hard earned money and we believe they deserve VIP treatment in return.

We’re different

John Davidon Xtenda

Xtenda’s Managing Partner is John Davidson. He has been working in the building trade for over 40 years since earning a scholarship to the prestigious Harland & Wolfship building company at the age of just 15. His apprenticeship gave him a passion for master craftsmanship, exquisite detailing, and professionalism. Throughout his career John has been frustrated that others within his trade didn’t share his high standards. Witnessing the sloppy, careless and neglectful work of other traders has at times infuriated him and provided the motivation to set up Xtenda.

“It drives me crazy to see how some customers are treated by so called ‘builders.’ No other industry would get away with it! Can you imagine paying £15,000 for a new car only to lose contact with the dealer and then get a call 3 months after the delivery date to say that it’s finished but it’s only half of what you ordered?! Or to get a call asking for another £10,000 to finish the car because they got the quote wrong?! There’s no way we’d accept that sort of service from the motor industry. But we almost expect it from the building trade. It needs to stop!” – John Davidson, Managing Partner, Xtenda

Don’t just take our word for it

“We just had the place revalued by the agent who sold us the property and, thanks in large part to the work of Xtenda, it has increased in value by 25%. That apart we were impressed with the professionalism, flexibility and “can do” approach of Xtenda’s excellent team who were a pleasure to have been associated with. The end result exceeded our expectations and invariably results in positive if not envious comments from our visitors.”
Allen and Val, Stafford
“We had other quotes for our extension, kitchen and shower room, but Xtenda were the only ones to show us why certain aspects of our own designs wouldn’t work for us and offer alternative ideas. Their costs are very transparent and honest and John helped us by offering a range of prices to suit our aspirations. Xtenda started on time, kept to their deadlines and provided a constant and clear line of communication throughout the project. We found them to be thorough, honest, confident in their abilities, really approachable and friendly. Having a project manager available to us every day also allowed the design to be quite organic. If we had a new idea along the way, they did everything they could to accommodate us. We wanted the “WOW” Factor and, in every way, we got it!”
Tracey and Paul Johnson, Stafford
“When you work hard for your money, you don’t want to waste it. We had a number of quotes and Xtenda was the company recommended to us by a trusted friend. John was the only builder to question our ideas and he freely offered valuable guidance and new design ideas. All prices were outlined in advance and there was always a range of cost options available to us. We appreciated being able to change aspects of our designs along the way, as the structure took shape and we could better visualize how we might use the space. The whole team was honest, trustworthy and, above all, reliable. With our new kitchen/family room extension – we now eat all our meals together, around our fabulous’ Island’, and we definitely spend much more time together as a family. A recent re-valuation of the property has shown that we are holding our market value well in these difficult times, and as for the finish of the work – we love it!”
Jo and Andrew Hoggarth, Crewe
“Thanks to Xtenda, we now have full use of a fantastic extension to our house as well as redesigned existing rooms to enhance our living area. You would never recognize the inside of our house from how it was before! We had a few quotes from other builders, but John’s enthusiasm was infectious and his knowledge and creative eye for adjustments to interior design ideas gave us the opportunity to improve on different living area designs as he went along, certainly saving time and money in the future. John and his team worked so hard, at the same time clearly attempting to limit our stress levels by keeping our existing habitable areas in a relatively normal state for as long as possible. Impressively, before the team moved on to a different area, they would tidy up and somehow managed to never leave behind any unnecessary disorganized mess. We have no regrets whatsoever about using Xtenda.”
Angela and Graeme Maynard, Stone
