Don’t just take our word for it – read what our happy customers have to say about R Toon Construction and the building services we provide and why they chose us to complete their project…

Before our project began I read all the testimonials and didn’t believe customers had actually wrote them. Now I know exactly what they mean. Ryan is everything I was looking for in a builder. Passionate about his work. High quality, considerate, hard working, trustworthy. No matter the weather he was there, never cuts a corner, tackles every problem and is always thinking 3 steps ahead.

Mark & Amy Smethurst

Finding quality builders are few and far between. We actually waited about a year to find the best builder to complete our project. We haven’t been disappointed with Ryan. He’s dedicated, hardworking and diligent. Unfortunately for him this was his most challenging and complex job to date but that hasn’t phased him. He has taken on the project finding practical and workable solutions to the problems encountered. His enthusiasm and passion for his work shows in how he completes every task at hand with pride and precision. The quality and workmanship of his work is second to none. He is honest, hardworking and trustworthy. Ryan has a warm and compassionate personality and his presence will be missed. We have even asked him to stay on to compete additional work. We thank him highly for transforming our home.

We have had extensive work carried out over the years by numerous different trades and needless to say that these have all been barely what we would call adequate!

R Toon Construction is unbelievably the best in the business.  I have never experienced what I would call true expertise and perfectionism until now.  R Toon Construction even went that extra mile to correct mistakes made and left by builders etc. in the past and make our home safe!

It doesn’t matter how big or small the job undertaken by Ryan and his team, all works are carried out and completed to an exceptional standard of quality.

We consider Ryan Toon to be so trustworthy and reliable that we are we were also willing to allow Ryan to have his own key so that he could come and complete works in our absence.  There was no doubt in our minds that Ryan would complete works to an impeccable standard in our absence at all times and that our property was in extremely capable and safe hands!!

Ryan is there to oversee the works at all times and each individual tradesperson on his team were all a tremendous group of guys with a friendly but yet professional attitude at all times.  Their attributes were second to none and there was nothing that we could fault at all.

All of the team’s standards have been outstanding from Plastering, Decorating, Carpentry and Plumbing.

Ryan and his team were appointed to undertake works following damage caused by a burst pipe in our loft conversion en-suite bathroom.  The mess was phenomenal but thanks to R Toon Construction, our home was rectified with minimal fuss but to a standard that anyone and we certainly will be proud to show off.

We could always rely on Ryan to keep us smiling throughout with his jovial and friendly personality but with the ability to maintain a professional attitude at all times!

We have even decided to have additional works carried out as the standard of workmanship is that profound we took advantage of their services and completed jobs we had been putting off for years.

We would personally like thank Ryan Toon and his exceptional team of guys for making our home perfect and one that we are very proud to call home.

I would have no hesitation in recommending R Toon Construction

Once again a huge thank you guys!

There are many builders out there, some are good, and some are not so good. R Toon Construction is none of these. We don’t know any other builders, nor do we need to. Ryan is what we believe to be a true craftsman. R Toon Construction are truly passionate about what they do, if an idea you have can be improved, Ryan will make it even better. His attention to detail is second to none, he makes your job feel special and number one. If it’s not good enough for his house, he won’t build it into yours. He is a friendly approachable guy, he’ll answer any question you have and will happily explain to you what they are doing in a way that anyone can understand. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

R Toon Construction was the best decision we made to have our extension done.  He was so reliable, friendly and caring. We had heard horror stories of people having extensions but we honestly could not understand these horrors as Ryan’s work was immaculate and very clean! He even cleaned the house! We lived in the house with 2 young kids (age 4 and 2) and he made sure it was a smooth process. We doubted some of the architects ideas and began to panic but Ryan and his team turned it around and made it brilliant. He’s very trust worthy and friendly. That is so important when someone is in your house for a long period of time. We will definitely have Ryan again and I would recommend him 100 per cent! Thank you for making our house lovely and we have made a great friend!

Neil & Hital Gilliver

We are nearing the end of a large project during which Ryan and his team have carried out extensive work for us throughout our house. The first floor has been extended and remodelled to create a bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and ensuite, a new family bathroom with a dormer window, an additional bedroom, and a bright airy landing with a sun tunnel. The roof has been renovated, the central heating has been upgraded, and the ground floor is currently being refurbished.

The work has been carried out to a high standard and with great attention to detail. Ryan has project managed everything and has never given us any cause for concern. Parts of the specification were very complex but Ryan and his team have been able to tackle everything and he has always presented us with solutions rather than problems. He is an excellent builder and the quality of his work is very impressive. Ryan communicates very well, his advice is sound, and he has good working relationships across the trades. He is reliable, trustworthy, and very easy to get along with.

We would happily employ Ryan again. He is a credit to his profession and we recommend him unreservedly.

Mr & Mrs Ratan

Ryan of R Toon Construction has just completed interior work in our house, knocking through a wall.
It was not straight forward, we were so impressed by the way he solved the problems that arose.  He just wanted to make it perfect for us, and we are so pleased.
He went beyond what most tradesmen would have done, not taking any shortcuts.
His standards are high and we enjoyed having him in the house.  We normally dread having workmen but it was a pleasure having Ryan.
We thoroughly recommend him, and wish him well. 

Vera & Bertrum Lightstone

We had a 2 storey extension that included a new bedroom, en suite and extended kitchen. The quality of the work completed by R Toon Construction was outstanding and they pay a lot of attention to detail and take a huge amount of pride in their work. Their attitude to work filled us with the confidence that they had our best interests at heart.

Ryan would work long hours to ensure the job got completed and would often turn up on a Saturday. Ryan would discuss clearly with us when he thought extra improvements would be beneficial and made clear any extra costs involved. The whole project was managed brilliantly and Ryan was always available to help with questions we might have.

There was never an issue having him around the house, he left the house as clean as possible every night he left! Ryan is a genuine, hard-working guy who wants to do a good job all of the time. He is so easy to get along with and we can honestly say we class him as a great friend. Cannot recommend R Toon Construction enough.

Rich & Sophie

We received three quotations at the beginning of our plans to extend our property. Compared to the other quotations received, R Toon Construction’s quotation was thorough and set out details of specifications and expectations including what was and was not included in the quotation. He was thorough in his assessment of the type of materials needed and took time to brick-match.

Ryan began the work on time, his skill and knowledge in every aspect of the building work required was excellent and he kept us fully informed of progress at all times. He was very polite and professional in all his dealings with us and the other contractors that came on site.

The finished building has clean brickwork, proper insulation, good quality fittings in the way of windows, guttering, soffits and facias, etc. We are happy to recommend R Toon Construction in Birstall to anyone.

Mr & Mrs Croft

We had a 2-storey extension that consisted of bringing the lounge/hallway forward, a garage and extending the third bedroom forwards and sideways to create a large bedroom with wet room at the rear. The quality of R Toon Constructions work was exceptional, very neat and carried out with an outstanding eye for detail.

We have a field in-front of our house that is used by the community and we have received universal praise for the work carried out and the end result.

Our architect deals with numerous contractors within Leicestershire and he was particularly impressed with the neatness of Ryan’s brickwork, as are other tradesman that have carried out work on our interior. Ryan completed the extension within our time expectation and was resourceful in assisting us in finding the best priced products.

We found Ryan and the whole team at R Toon Construction to be hard-working and honest. They take great pride in their work and want the best for there customers. Ryan is a genuinely nice, friendly guy who we couldn’t recommend enough.

Mr & Mrs Hartopp

R Toon Construction should already know how pleased we are with the building work that they have done at our bungalow.

They worked terribly hard for us and have done far more and put in greater effort than we believe any other builder would have done. We are truly grateful for everything and think of Ryan as a friend because he has made every possible consideration for us.

R Toon Construction should be proud of what they have done to transform our home. Thank you so much for your hard work, your professionalism, your courtesy and your kindness.

Obviously we are glad that the building work is finished. However, we will miss you not being around. We have only lived here for 9 months and it seems that you have almost lived with us for almost the last 5!

Martin & Cherryl

Our bungalow was extended along the whole of the rear of the property to provide additional space in the kitchen and the lounge. A double apex roof was constructed, with four velux windows in each part of the roof. The chimney was taken down and new doors and windows installed. Internally, stud walls have been built to give an en-suite and utility room. The quality of Ryan’s work is brilliant. The building inspectors have commented on it and commended R Toon Construction for it.

Ryan explained what they were doing, what we could expect and discussed what we wanted at each stage of the building work. His quotation was very detailed and he went to great lengths to match existing brickwork, roof tiles, etc. The work was on time and on budget, any additional cost (choice of internal doors, etc) was discussed and costs obtained and compared by Ryan on our behalf. Ryan turned up when he said he would, worked full days and was always polite and considerate to the fact that he was working in our home.

Mr & Mrs Read

We bought a 1907 Edwardian property near the Leicester Botanical Gardens in December 2012. We eventually wish to move my wife’s parents into the property so the ground floor accommodation required extensive adaptation. Ryan was engaged as a principal project leader and master builder required to co-ordinate a group of craftsmen including: Architect, Structural Engineer, Electricians, Plumbers, Roofers, Landscape Gardeners, Painters & Decorators etc.

The project included a large kitchens diner extension requiring a complex roof and lighting arrangement. He then made stud wall interior rooms to our specifications. Groundwork and drainage took almost 4 months and needed both patience and resolve. His communication across all trades was excellent and was able to secure excellent support.

I am delighted to recommend his work which is complimented by a character of diligence and equilibrium enabling him to deal with all types of clients and characters. I am sure that he will have an impressive number of photographs from such a large project but if you need to see his work first hand then you may arrange this via Ryan at a convenient time. On a project like this my advice is to be flexible on both budget and timescale to enable scope for initiative and design evolution.
