…Very good and professional

I just thought it worth letting you know that we are very happy with the wall you have built us. Your people were all very good and professional during the build which was undertaken in difficult circumstances circumstances caused by the traffic situation in the High Street. The wall looks good, sturdy and fits in with the area.

Thank you

…Delighted with the outcome!

I would like to thank you and your people for the landscaping work in our garden – we are delighted with the outcome! What a difference you have made compared with what you started with.

 I know there were some issues to resolve during the project and that we were not always the easiest clients but your people were all flexible and tried their best to understand what we were trying to accomplish. In particular, special thanks to James for his flexibility and organising the work and also to Gaz, Matt and Stuart who did most of the work They always worked with good humour even during spells of rain and very hot weather.
Thanks to all involved!

How delighted we all are…

We are delighted with our new terrace.  What an amazing difference it has made, and I know will change the way we use it (and we have waited nearly 8 years for it!).  I particularly wanted to say how impressed we were with Jordan who worked tirelessly and meticulously for the 4 ½ days and remained upbeat even after a solid 11 hour day (as did the lovely Zane).  His bespoke heat-pump inspection cover is a masterpiece!

Tidy, polite & very professional

We had a longstanding damp problem that we had tried to solve in various ways. Carl gave recommendations that were spot on. Two months later, after a lot of wet weather, we now have no dampness. His team are tidy, polite and very professional. I would recommend this company unreservedly.

A great big thank you…


I just wanted to say a great big thank you for resolving our damp issues in November of last year.  These have certainly been tested over the past couple of months and we have experienced no dampness at all in our utility room.  Your recommendations were top notch Carl and the work carried out quickly, neatly and with no problems at all.

Carl’s team were excellent. The quality of work was very good and Carl is adamant that above all else the customer must be happy. I had a couple of snags at the end of the project which Carl’s team came out immediately and rectified. I would definitely use him again.

The gazebo is amazing and looks like it was meant to be there. The caretaker was truly amazed and actually smiled – I don’t see that often!!
Thanks again Carl, you and your team have made a real difference to our school.

I would recommend this company

I had work done in my bathroom, I posted my job online and found the company quickly and professionally looked at and gave a me a very reasonable quote. Explained exactly what they were to do and carried out to a very high standard. After inspection I found I was extremely pleased and satisfied with my new bathroom. I found Carl to be of a very friendly nice mannered professional. Due to the high standard of work I am now looking to use the company for further work to my property.

Just wanted to write and thank you and the lads for all their hard work during the wind, rain and, sorry just wind and rain really, it was absolutely horrible conditions for outside work. You have transformed our eyesore piece of land which was about 3 foot above the required level into a wonderful Double Garage with a magnificent undercover access to our home.
The price you quoted was extremely competitive and there were no surprises with the final bill and the staged payment agreement was fair as it only required payment for the work completed.
The lads are a credit to the company, they did not ask for anything and never stopped working.
We will definitely be using you again soon and would highly recommended you to others.

Without hesitation we can wholeheartedly recommend Carl Mintern and his team

In my 35 years of finding and developing houses I have never come across a builder who is so capable of getting a job done, and so well. If an unforeseen problem arises, Carl can be relied on to sort it out quickly and efficiently. His prices are very fair and competitive and he sticks to his quotes.

We are really delighted with our new kitchen floor and would not hesitate to recommend Mintern Building and Landscaping

James and Ollie worked really hard and completed the job with minimum disruption. So refreshing to find a good, reliable and reasonably priced local building company. Thank you from the Moores Family.

Having recently moved to the area, we were unsure of local tradesmen to carry out a complete transformation of our new garden, so having received quotes from one or two others and not entirely impressed with their knowledge or enthusiasm for landscaping, we were advised to look at the ‘Trusted Trader’ section of the Blackmore Vale, where we found Carl’s company. Suffice to say, the garden has undergone a complete and utter transformation into ‘exactly’ what we had in mind, in fact better, and we are delighted with it, which is all down to Carl’s passion and enthusiasm right from the outset. So much so, we have raved to all our neighbours and anyone else who happens to comment on the lovely job! Well done to Carl and his brilliant team who gave us the most delightful haven on our doorstep! We hope you continue to go from strength to strength.

Carl, thank you so much for all the work you have done for us.  We are delighted with the results and cannot praise Ben and the lads too much for the way they worked, it was a delight to have them doing the work, a good advert for your company. They were cheerful despite the inclement weather. Once more, thank you.
