Carol, Cheadle Hulme – November 2016.
Ian and his team built a kitchen extension, installed a new bathroom & developed a mudroom between April 2016-September 2016.
All options were considered and discussed at the planning stage. Ian has good knowledge and experience of the local SMBC planning processes, which expedited the planning approval.
His crew are friendly, highly skilled, worked effectively & did not cut any corners. The builders were trustworthy and I regularly left them alone in the house.
Ian was accessible if you needed to contact him and regularly checked the progress of the build.
We are delighted with the end product and would not hesitate to use Ian and his team for any future work.
Joe & Helen, Cheadle Hulme – October 2016.
Our experience with Hende Builders was that they were very professional throughout the building process, our work was delivered on time, within budget and to a high standard. The team onsite paid good attention to detail and communicated very well with us at each stage of the works. We are impressed with the end result and have no hesitation in recommending Ian and his team.
Steve & Kate, Cheadle Hulme – May 2016.
We engaged Hende on a design and build project to undertake a garage conversion and rear extension. Ian and the team have been exceptional from the inception of the project through to completion.
Ian and the Hende team have expertly managed everything through the design, planning permission and build. The quality of the workmanship and finish is exceptional. Everyone on the team has a great eye for detail and all clearly take great pride in a job well done. Nothing has been too much trouble and Ian and his team have offered great insight and advice in making the right decisions throughout the design and build.
The project came in on time, on price and to a level of quality that we are genuinely delighted with. Ian’s personal approach, ownership of managing all aspects of the build and great communication made it a stress free project. The Hende team are very respectful that they are working on and in your home and are a very professional team of expert tradesmen, it has been a pleasure to deal with them.
We recommend Hende very highly. We got a fantastic build, with a great finish at a very fair price from a highly professional team.
Heather, Cheadle Hulme – April 2016.
Outstanding Builders – Ian and his brilliant team at Hende Building Services have just finished our large single storey extension plus several bits of internal work on our existing house and we’re absolutely delighted with the result.
The standard of work throughout is amazing and has been commented on by our structural engineer, architect, friends and several tradesmen not related to the company.
Every member of the Hende team is exceptionally good at what they do, very polite and unbelievably tidy.
Ian coordinates the whole project brilliantly and made several suggestions to change our architect’s plan, which we took on board and are very happy with the result.
We had a 2 week old baby when our external wall was knocked through and the team did everything they could to make it as easy as possible for us.
If you want building work done by a friendly, professional team that’s finished to a great standard and plenty of banter along the way then give Ian at Hende a call. You won’t regret it!
Tony & Pam, Bramhall – December 2015.
I am writing to thank you for doing what we consider to be an excellent job on our bungalow.
It was fairly priced (not the cheapest) but the standard of workmanship and the helpfulness of your employees and sub contractors could not be faulted. All have been most courteous, thorough and considerate of being in our house.
The work on the roof and the dormer was particularly impressive, because it was not straightforward, but that is not to detract from the skills of the rest, all the way from the plasterers to the electricians, through to the tiler.
I should also like to thank you personally for all the help and advice, as we went through the job, which was over and above what we could reasonably expect. Having not moved for thirty years, we were a little rusty, and your input was very much appreciated.
We would have no hesitation in recommending HBS to anyone considering a home extension, and could assure them that it will be a job well done, with excellent value for money.
Tony and Pam
Gemma & Dan, Cheadle Hulme – November 2015.
Dear Ian and the Team,
Gemma and I would like to thank you for all the hard work and quality building you have done for us over the past 10 weeks delivered on time and within budget.
We are really glad that we decided to bring you on board at the planning stage, as we needed that brutal honesty and advice in creating our first home extension.
The guys always turned up on time and were a pleasure to have around the house, cleaning up after themselves and being generally courteous whilst Gemma was looking after our newborn baby.
We appreciate the attention to detail such as the brickwork tie-ing in so well with the existing house, the new roof and joinery matching the existing traditional style.
Also, thanks for being so amenable to our last minute requests and throwing spanners in the works.
We hope to use Hende Building Services again for future projects.
Dan and Gemma

Hende Building Services – Cheadle Hulme
I met in late 2014 to obtain a quote for a single storey extension. Immediately I felt that Ian would be one of the two builders who we would select. He came over as both professional and honest and provided the quote as requested. Not the cheapest and not the most extensive, but you get for what you pay for.
As we needed a company that would be able to project manage the whole process from start to finish, we felt Ian was able to give us that requirement and was therefore chosen. For us communication was key along with a well-defined plan. Each week you would be advised of what was being planned and any changes would be notified in advance.
Work started in late June 2015. We found the builders were all competent and started work usually at 8am or earlier. Quality was good and the team all knew their role and responsibilities. Even after the last skip was removed from the road, “Steve” still came back to sweep the road in front of the house. The work was completed in early Oct 2015 with some minor snagging items to finish off.
As in any build there were some issues but it is the way Ian dealt with them, which gains our high recommendation.
Should we move and decide on another extension Ian and his team would be our chosen suppliers.
Paul & Anne, Cheadle Hulme – August 2015.
Thank you to you and your team for the excellent work done on our extension over the four month build.
Your suggestions were always spot on, especially regarding the large steel support beam and sun tunnel, and every step is explained and notice given so we knew what was happening.
The finish on the lantern roof window and new ceiling is very high-spec, giving the new large room a real quality feel.
You and your team were very helpful and pleasant to deal with (and brilliant with our boisterous dog!), we are very happy with the work done and would definitely recommend you to others.
Paul & Anne
