I have worked with numerous contractors over the last 20 or so years, and would definitely recommend the team at WRS. They’re a family run firm that cares about their jobs. Their positive and helpful approach throughout the build made the process run smoothly, and meant that issues, questions or variations were dealt with quickly and efficiently. They were a pleasure to work with

Thanks so much for the way our project was handled by your company and the way your work force so cheerfully handled everything. No request from us was too much trouble. We will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who asks! Best builders in Essex!

As we now come to the end of “Phase 1” of our redevelopment of our bungalow we would like to thank you and of course Chris and Ginge for their work on the project. We are happy with the work undertaken and are proud to show off our new rooms. Naturally we will pass on your good name to folks
James and Lynda McClure
I have been complimented on numerous occasions about the build and how it blends in with the original house. This is a direct reflection on the work of Wright and Ruffell
