What our Clients are Saying

We are pleased to include some comments that several of our clients have made over the years :

“We are delighted with both the quality of the work and the professionalism of your team. They have transformed the living areas in ways we didn’t imagine.
Even though it was a much smaller job than what you typically take on, we were treated with great respect and courtesy by the team.”
J McAulay (Berkhamsted Herts)
“Having just completed a major addition to my property, my wife and I would like you to know you are the best builders we have ever used. Your workmen where polite, helpful and the quality of work was exemplary. Whilst you stated you may not necessarily be the cheapest your guarantee the work would proceed to timetable and with the greatest care was proven to be accurate. Thank you for your efforts!”
Mr & Mrs E.T Neal (Bovingdon Herts)
“We would highly recommend G S Walker. We have used them several times in various projects (in various homes) and what they are to us is “peace of mind”. Knowing that the job will be done well, to a high standard, with excellent skilled tradesman at a reasonable cost. Also, knowing that should any issues occur afterwards, they are only too ready to sort them out is a service you don’t always get these days. We’ve recommended them to all our friends (and strangers when our building work has been admired by passers by or neighbours) with no hesitation knowing that they will always do an excellent job no matter how big (or small) the project.”
Mr & Mrs A. Dodson (Rickmansworth, Herts)
“We will only be too happy to give your company references for the work you have completed for us over many years.The work carried out on my homes and my business premises has been done with complete integrity and to the highest possible standards.”
Mr Mrs D Furnell (Berkhamsted, Herts)
“We selected GS Walker Ltd to undertake our extension as it was a rather large project, environment (noise and disruption risk to residents) and safety for public and workforce, the quality of workmanship and the need to and tiles. We needed quality workmanship and a project without surprises both in timing and costs. GS Walker met all these criteria and we are extremely pleased with the result. GS Walker produced a bid which was realistic and covered many elements which we felt were conveniently avoided by others to represent a lower cost option. I have and will continue to recommend GS Walker to people who expect a quality outcome, safe clean working environment, professional team of employees and no surprises when it comes to meeting the budget for both timing and cost.”
CJ Thomas. CFO (Hemel Hempstead, Herts)
“GS Walker Ltd built our extension in 2010. The extension was constructed using green oak and the result was exceptional in terms of quality and workmanship and is a stunning addition to our house. The GSW team were always professional efficient and with a great attention to detail. They were also pleasant to deal with and made every effort to minimise any disruption by ensuring the site was left clean and tidy at all times.”
B Fawcett (Prestwood, Bucks)
“GS Walker Ltd have completed several building and landscaping projects for us over the last 12 years and we have been highly satisfied with the planning and execution of all of them. The project management has been excellent, with work completed on time, to budget and a high standard; additionally, the Walker’s team have always been courteous and considerate in undertaking work around the ongoing demands of our family life. Suffice to say that, since the company completed the first project for us in 1999, we have always returned to them without considering other contractors and will continue to do so in the future. I am very happy to provide this testimonial to their work and recommend them.”
G Prince (Bovingdon, Herts)
“Many thanks to all at GS Walker Ltd for the skill and commitment they’ve shown over the last few weeks. It’s been a pleasure to deal with a building firm whose staff are polite, punctual and are able to offer good advice when asked. Under Gary’s expert project management, the whole job was finished on time, on budget and done with the attention to detail I’ve come to expect from you.”
T Stapley (Rickmansworth, Herts)
“I would highly recommend GS Walker they run an excellent building company. I have worked with Sean over the past 10 years, he has successfully completed two large building projects for us. We have also recommended him to our friends who have likewise been very happy with the standard of work and the management of their projects. Sean is very reliable, honest and efficient, he is easy to work with and communicates well with all the varied trades involved in a large building project.”
P Twogood (Dagnell, Herts)
“GS Walker Ltd built my extension and I have seen other examples of the work undertaken by Sean and his team. I always refer my clients to GS Walker for the following reasons:-
1. Professionalism
2. Quality of work
3. Clarity in quotes
4. Accuracy in delivery
I have no hesitation in recommending G S Walker Ltd.”
L Watts ACIB MBA FSDip (St Albans, Herts)
“We have used GS Walker as a builder on four occasions over a period of 19 years and this is how I would describe them.
• The work is to a high quality: Sean comes across as a perfectionist and he or his Project Manager, monitors the work to make sure that everything is carried out to a high standard.
An example of what I like about how they work is that the area around the site is cleared and cleaned at the end of each day so as to cause minimum disruption as well as to ensure the area is safe.
The team who work for Sean are helpful, polite and a pleasure to have around the house.
There is a system where, whenever I ask for additional work to be carried out, a document is completed confirming what is to be done. This means that both GS Walker and I have proof of this and avoids the embarrassment of potential disagreement at the end of the job. I have no hesitation in recommending GS Walker.”
S Ashman (Kings Langley, Herts)
“GS Walker Ltd completed an extensive rebuild, refurbishment and extension to our home in 2010. Our job was completed to a high standard on time and budget. We had moved out during the works and neighbours commented on the quality of the finish, tidiness of the site during construction, the politeness and consideration to others from the management team and their men allowing the project to be executed with the minimum of impact on neighbour’s daily lives.”
J & J Gregory (Berkhamsted, Herts)
“Over the last 13 years G.S.Walker Ltd have regularly undertaken building work for us. This work has involved an extensive refurbishment of a grade II listed house in Boxmoor, including an extension, major remodeling, new central heating system, and replacement of four bathrooms. While GS Walker was certainly not the cheapest of the quotes we received, we always felt that their fees were more than justified by the high quality of their workmanship. Sean kept a very tight ship with good attention to detail and we were much impressed by the professionalism and high calibre of all his staff. They were sympathetic to the historic aspects of the house, prepared to go that extra mile in researching sympathetic materials and worked well with the conservation department at the council. We have been very pleased with the results.”
Professor A & Mrs J Tinker (Hemel Hempstead)
“When deciding to refurbish our outbuildings to a high specification, we interviewed a number of builders. We were looking for builders that could work to the vision and plans but would also be willing to challenge and advise where necessary. Sean insists on having a constant level of communication and clarity in direction which proved essential to improve expectations about costs and timelines. The site was well maintained and safe, and the builders were all courteous and accommodating of working next to a functioning household. The quality of the finish is testament to the craftsmanship and care taken to deliver a project to the desired specifications. We would not hesitate to recommend GS Walker to others.”
A & M Cooper (Halton nr Wendover, Bucks)
“GS Walker Ltd carried out a major build at our home in 2010. We chose them for their reputation and we chose well. Their build quality is excellent, delivery was on time and we found their staff to be both courteous and professional. At all times we felt that our home and property were in safe hands.”
Mr & Mrs. P Smith (Berkhamsted, Herts)
“GS Walker has successfully carried out a new build for my Dental Practice some 2 years ago. The company has also carried out a large extension to my house some 4 years ago. I found Sean very professional and the workmanship was excellent. I also found the time spent was minimal and the attention to detail was impressive. I have no hesitation in recommending GS Walker Ltd to others. Thank you.”

“A brief thanks you for all your hard work that you and your team put into building Foxwood. I particularly wanted to thank you for your patience and understanding throughout the project and for helping us incorporate an additional bedroom after building work had commenced and resolving all the complications this created for our roof structure. Thank you for your equanimity and guidance.Your team coped admirably with us living onsite and always treated the whole family with consideration and courtesy. We will miss having you all around the pace but we are delighted with the home you have built for us.”
Mr V H Clements (Redbourn, Herts)
“I just wanted to THANK YOU for such a good job done on the new outhouse.
The Shower design is Amazing !!! It feels so spacious and its great having the patio stones go through to the shower area.
Please thank Rob & all the men !”
H Percy (Berkhamsted)
“This is not from one of our cients , however a good read-

"It is unwise to pay too much, but it is worse to pay too little.
When you pay too much, you lose a little money-that is all.
When you pay too little you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing that it was bought to do.
The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot: IT CANNOT BE DONE.
If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk that you run,and if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better.”
J Ruskin 1819-1890 (London)
“Dear Sean,

I’m a little tardy in putting pen to paper to convey our enormous appreciation for all you did for us last year. Your personal contribution and care were beyond expectation and without any doubt, embellished our plans and the end result of the project. It would be a step too far to say I lie in the bathroom you re-designed and think of you but therein lies an example of how your expertise created much added value!

As for your team – wonderful! We so enjoyed having them around, we were genuinely sad to see them go.

Thank you Sean – we are proud of our new home and so should you be.”
Mr & Mrs H (Hertfordshire)
“Thank you for the construction work you and your team carried out at the thatch. You run a very professional outfit and I wish you every success.”
MP (Hertfordshire)

This was a small but lovely project that along with the internal remodelling transformed a small kitchen into a large kitchen diner, with large opening doors onto a sunny patio!
