I’d be grateful if you could let everyone know of our appreciation.

Mr P, Sherborne. July 2016
I would like to thank you and your team on behalf of myself and my family, for the work you did for my Mum. The gentle and kind consideration that you showed her during the building of the bungalow and following works has meant a great deal to us. Your prompt action when there was a problem put our minds at rest and your attending men were very kind and thorough.
She has settled in and is enjoying the comfortable life of living on one level with everything close to hand.

Mr & Mrs B, Broadchalke. July 2016
I just wanted to thank you for all your efforts to cure the chimney flooding problem after the pretty severe tests of the last month. I say with some confidence that all seems to be well. So again, very many thanks for removing a bit of a nightmare.
We are so pleased we asked Burfitt & Garrett to tender for the work; throughout the build, the service your company has provided has been outstanding and at all times very professional and courteous in its approach. We are also grateful for your willingness to resolve any issues that we have encountered since the house has been finished.
Please pass on our thanks to your staff for building us a home far nicer that we deserve.
Mr & Mrs S
Many thanks for the wonderful work here at Wardour. We are thrilled. The staff have asked especially that I thank you. It was brilliant to come in on Monday and see a complete transformation and still be able to teach our classes.
We are pleased with your work. We hope to call on your services again in the near future.
Mr & Mrs R
Thank you and your team for the excellent work in helping us achieve an extension to our house which we can be proud of. We particularly appreciate all the hard work which went into ensuring that the walls and ceilings of the new part of the building matched those of the existing with no obvious joins. This is a tribute to the quality of your team and your sub-contractors that this has been achieved with such success.
We enjoyed working with you all and the opportunity that it presented to make new and interesting acquaintances whilst the work was in progress.
Once again, thank you and all the men who worked on our project for a job very well done.
Many thanks for everybody involved in the build for making us a fantastic house.
Mr & Mrs R, Stour Row. Sep 2015

Mr F, Shaftesbury. Aug 2016
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for everything carried out here by your firm: my wife and I have been very impressed by the quality of work carried out and above all by the willingness, courteousness and overall professionalism of all your staff, the same is applied to all the other subsidiary companies that you out source to employ the various services of.
We will certainly be delighted, if the opportunity arises, to highly recommend your firm to others in the future.
Many thanks to the workforce who were very helpful and took time to explain what they were doing, also to Ian and the plumber for their advice and help.
May I also say that the service we were given by yourselves was exemplary. The staff you employ were first class in every aspect and the finished result was a credit to their workmanship.
At all times we were able to have a working dialogue and were kept in the picture throughout.
I would have no hesitation in recommending you as builders of the highest quality and hope that your company flourishes through the tough times ahead.
You and your staff have done an excellent job. I cannot speak highly enough of your workforce – all of whom were so thoughtful and courteous alongside their high standard professional finish which has left me very pleased indeed with the result.

It was a pleasure having them here and I have been telling everyone what a fantastic job they did and recommending you unreservedly.
BB & DB
......except to thank Burfitt & Garrett, and in particular their site foreman, for dealing with the contract so well, and completing 3 weeks early.
The cottage is transformed and improved beyond recognition. I was most impressed with the speed and efficiency that you and the excellent builders managed to complete the project.
Mr & Mrs W
...we are really thrilled with how the house has turned out. The on-site and wider B&G team worked really hard and their positivity, good cheer, willingness to go that extra mile and commitment to do a 'proper job' was all hugely appreciated. The transformation in the house is superb and we could not be more pleased...
Mr P, PenSelwood. Dec 2016
We would like to thank Burfitt and Garrett for the efficient way the whole contract was completed, including particularly the removal of the old flat roof and insertion of the new lower ceiling within the week’s holiday and the general tidiness and on time completion. Also for the general helpfulness and attitude of the employees and contractors on site.
Thank-you very much for an excellent job well done.
Mr & Mrs C, Barford St Martin. Oct 2015
We have been absolutely delighted with our house extension and all the work that you have done for us. We were so pleased with the speed everything was done and would not hesitate to recommend you highly to anyone.
Thank you for your care and attendance throughout this project and for completing it well within the period required.
Thank you for doing a wonderful job on the repairs. Your team were excellent as usual. We are very pleased with the new French doors. In due course we may consider a new front door and will be in touch.
We would like to thank you and all your team for the exceptional help and flexibility (and good humour). We felt that everybody was especially sympathetic over the problem which we found very re-assuring and supportive. Many thanks again for your personal attention and concern.
Mr & Mrs M
The project was commenced on time and completed slightly ahead of the school re-opening in September. Whilst the extension was small there were still a lot of different processes to sequence and this was done seamlessly by Peter and his team.
All works were done to a very high standard and the school was left clean and tidy.
Continuity of supervision was maintained and it was felt the premises were left in safe hands during the summer holiday.
Terrific job! As always done with great speed and tidiness...Many thanks to you and your team who are always a pleasure to deal with.
Mr F, Sedgehill. Dec 2014
Thank you for the hard work, tolerance, tidying up and good humour. A really excellent job.
Many thanks for a job very well done.
Many thanks for fitting us in before Christmas. It was thoughtful of you and the work was perfect!
Mr & Mrs M
We thoroughly enjoyed the period of the work, and congratulate you on excellent craftsmanship, and a very efficient and friendly approach. We are absolutely delighted with the result and will certainly be recommending you to our friends.
We have been very pleased with the outcome and wish to praise you and your staff for an excellent job well done.
Thank you for the excellent standard of this repair work.
MJ & KM F
Thank you so much for coming to the rescue so swiftly – all looks good now and faces look happier with food production back to normal!
We are very pleased with the work which you and your team have done and the result is far better than we had hoped. Please pass on our thanks to all concerned.
With many thanks for your work on our barn. We are delighted with it.
We are really delighted with the work and look forward to using your company again.

Many thanks for a job done very well and very quickly.
...the house is really excellent. We are thrilled with the results and the work you have done, and our friends over the weekend loved it too. Thank you so much.
Mr RJ, Stockton. Aug 2016
We are very pleased with the work that you did, the doors are much less draughty and we are warm and much more comfortable.
Please pass on our thanks to all those who carried out the work, which was to the high standard we had expected.
My wife joins me in expressing thanks and appreciation to you, your staff and your sub-contractors for the way in which the work was carried out. I have been used to supervising craftsmen and inspecting their work, and I consider that all the men involved were craftsmen. Each stage of the work was good, nothing was skimped and the results looked good and is good. Each man took a pride in his work and took pains to clear up as thorougly as possible at the end of each day. You can be proud of your men. You will probably know the saying that the quality of a business depends on the man at the top. Fight it out between you. We shall readily recommend you, and rest assured that should we require further building work, we shall place it with you.
Thank you very much for creating my beautiful home

Thank you for the excellent work carried out and the farmhouse looks much improved.
MFA, Mere. June 2017
The house is looking great, so thank you to you and your team for making the build process so trouble free. Peter deserves a special mention the calm and efficient way he has organised the build and kept the stress levels relatively low!
We are so delighted with the result. All credit to everyone at Burfitt and Garrett. Several passers-by have commented on the house and have made some very approving comments!
So thank you once again to you and your team.
N & P F
We are absolutely delighted with the lovely reception area we now have at school and would like to thank you and your firm for all your co-operation during the build.
Many thanks to all concerned for the excellent work they carried out.
We are very pleased with the work your company did for us and would like to thank you and all the men who did the work. Without exception they were pleasant, helpful & considerate - as well as getting the work done and doing a good job.
Mrs T, Mere. Apr 2014
I am delighted with the work and found the tradesman who carried out the work to be most pleasant as well as being clean and tidy in their work. A good team.
Thank you for fitting in my small renovation into your busy work schedule.
Burfitt & Garrett instilled real confidence … our plans were straightforward but converting the house required tight scheduling. The finish of the entire job is good and the resultant living accommodation excellent. I recommend Burfitt & Garrett for their openness, integrity and no nonsense practicality. All said, this is a first rate job.
...Can you pass on to the team that have worked there that the works are excellent, and the residents have nothing but praise for them...
Mr G, Tisbury. Nov 2015
Thank-you for a good job done and promptly.
Mr R, Bowerchalke. Dec 2015
Terrific job! As always done with great speed and tidiness despite occasional adverse weather conditions.
Many thanks to you and your team who are always a pleasure to deal with.
Mr & Mrs F
Thank you very much for the good work on my out – building, I should be moving stuff into it this week.
A heartfelt thank you to you and your team for the work you carried out at our house. We absolutely love what you have achieved here. You completely made our vision come to life. Without exception your team were unfailingly polite, friendly and fun. Their attention to detail was flawless. Would love to mention them all by name but fear this letter would be endless!
I am especially grateful to you for pushing the main work through so it was done for the birthday. I know how hard everyone worked to do that and please pass on our enormous thanks to them all. They really did go above and beyond and were brilliant.
I am constantly impressed with the way you and the team always kept us informed of what was happening, the guidance you gave us, and the fact that nothing was ever too much trouble… even when I changed my mind and kept coming up with “little extras” I would like done! Not to mention that without you guys we would still have huge drain issues.
This was our first foray into having building work done and you all made it a great experience. Will not hesitate to recommend your firm and when we decide on what the next project is will call you straightaway!
W & CJ
I am very pleased with the level of the work done and it will be a relief to be watertight. Also your work force were a pleasure to have around.
Once again we would like to thank all of the people who have worked so well for us, and to say how pleased we are with what has been done. We look forward to there being enough dry weather for the gable end to be finished, but understand how difficult it is when everything is so wet, perhaps the Spring will prove a little more accommodating
We have been delighted with the work you have done for us and have given two people reference who asked about the building work in this area.
Mr & Mrs H
Donhead St Andrew
...Our new home exceeds expectations by a considerable margin and we are most appreciative of all the hard graft put in by the B&G team...we were constantly struck by the very positive and pleasant attitude of everyone involved in the project. What could have been a very stressful experience was in fact a relaxed and pretty painless six months for us.
Mr W, Sixpenny Handley. Oct 2015
Very grateful for the speed and dedication with which you and your crew tackled the job. What with Easter, holidays and the wedding, it could not have been easy to keep the momentum going in such a limited timespan and we are more than happy with the results.
With the re-building now done, we would like to sincerely thank you and your staff for everything that you have done to give us the home of our dreams.
The work was concluded on time and virtually on budget (apart from things we requested or agreed to as the project evolved); something that must be a rarity going by the horror stories we have seen on TV and heard from others.
There were too many people for us to name individually but we would really be grateful if you could forward our thanks and appreciation to the core team of Iain, Dave, Del and Lee.
Iain in particular deserves special thanks for the way he kept a cool head and things ticking along in an easy going manner. His extra-curricular work of providing us with ideas for picturesque walks was also much appreciated!
Thanks again and if you ever want anyone to act as a reference, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Mr & Mrs B,
As with the previous work you’ve done here – thank you for the excellent service.
I should like to say how very pleased we are with the work you have done for us. The house looks lovely. I should also like to say how very helpful and kind you all your men have been.
We are both very pleased with the finished job and the speed in which it was completed. Please pass on our thanks to the staff who were involved with the works.
The project was not an easy task, because of the lack of accessibility, the fragile state of the ceiling and the difficulties posed by fitting three very heavy steel beams within a confined and awkward space. However your staff rose splendidly to the challenge and I have nothing but praise for their professional skills, frequently their innovative solution to problems which arose, and the high standards of workmanship throughout the job.
May I also thank you, Steve, personally for being so attentive and thorough: I always felt that any query – no matter how small! – would receive your wholehearted attention, and the response would be swift and accurate: very reassuring, as we face the unpleasant prospect of the landing ceiling collapsing under the strain of the work on the roof!
Well done and may thanks!
G Capt H
