Linda & Ian – Chatham

Building Contracting Services

The building work carried out on a New Side Extension was of a very high standard, and the team were very efficient, friendly and willing to advise on possible alterations to the original plan. SMG ensured that the original plans got through Building Control and employed a Structural Engineer to make this happen. Very satisfied overall and would highly recommend SMG for any building work.

Tom – Rochester

Building Contracting Services

“SMG were superb from start to finish. Their communication was excellent, they turned up when they said they said they would and worked extremely hard. They dealt with the covid uncertainty very well and always let us know with plenty of notice if things needed to be rearranged. Special mention to Max who is a consummate professional. Highly recommended and excellent value.”

Nick and Kate Gray – Chatham

Kitchen Installation

'SMG have provided a first-class service from start to finish – our new kitchen has been completed on schedule, and the workmanship is first class. In addition, the price quoted for the work at the outset is exactly what we have paid – with no nasty surprises halfway through the job – we would have no hesitation in recommending SMG to our friends for future building work'

Susannah - Rochester

Refurb Services

'SMG carried out a range of refurbishments from adding skirting boards to knocking through built in cupboards made from breeze blocks. They opened up the top floor landing and installed a beautiful new bannister. A new, safe loft hatch and ladder was installed, the craftsmanship on this is outstanding. Ceiling light fittings where moved with a new wall switch safely installed. Finally, SMG handmade a bespoke wardrobe to fit over the stairs in the box room. This wardrobe is impeccable. They are friendly, trustworthy people who left my house very tidy and took all rubble and other materials with them to dispose of. I highly recommend this company and will be using them again in the future.'

Craig and Victoria  - Rochester

 Remedial Works

'Just wanted to extend huge thanks to Marie and SMG for helping our family in an emergency when rain started coming through our ceiling and lightbulb. The next day they arranged a roofer to check the damage, and had it fixed the very same day! SMG will be our go to for any future work, exceptional service.'

Ade and Val - Rochester

 Bathroom Installation Services

'We have no hesitation in recommending SMG Building Solutions: Our newly completed en-suite bathroom has been finished to a very high standard at a competitive price.  Every member of the team worked their hardest to deliver exactly what we asked for.

Thank you again to all of you.  We have started to decorate and have a trip to IKEA planned to do the fun bit of choosing the bits and bobs to finish it all off.  I will forward a photo when it's all done..'

Paul and Sue

'Hello there, I would just like to say the work done has been to A1 standard and  would recommend the team to anyone needing any work doing'

 Stewart Owen

Building Contracting Services

'We employed Mark and the team at SMG to carry out some relatively modest but structural building works to our bungalow. Throughout they were very courteous and professional, especially Sam, who gave us huge confidence that he cared about the work, doing it right and doing it cleanly and tidily

We had a few hiccoughs along the way, mainly in dealing with Building Control, but Mark did all that was necessary to ensure we were compliant, and did so uncomplainingly even though it involved additional attendance

We would definitely use SMG again – and we have already asked for a quote for some more work, which is part of ongoing modifications we plan to make

There’s a reason why some builders are busy, and that’s usually because they are good and because they care – SMG tick those boxes'

'Really happy with the work recently completed by SMG. Max approached the work as if it was his own place. The finish more than met my expectations and I found everybody really easy to deal with. I would definitely recommend SMG and happily use them again. I found a builder I can trust to do a perfect job at exactly the price they quote..'

Featherby Partnership Schools

'Following the completion of a new false ceiling in our school hall we highly recommend SMG. This was a particularly challenging job where the original ceiling was curved and not stable enough to hold the new ceiling. SMG found solutions to any obstacles this job created and finished to a very high standard and under the estimated time. They were adaptable and fully adhered to all our Covid-19 related requirements. They cleaned up after themselves daily and, once the job was complete, left the hall clean, neat and tidy.'

Gaynore & Melissa.Kemsley

Building Contracting Services

I would like to express my gratitude to SMG for the professional and supportive service that they have provided to our school (St William of Perth Catholic Primary School) over a number of years. They are the first company that I turn to when I have an issue with premises maintenance. SMG are always available and respond to needs of our school very promptly.

SMG show a genuine concern for the welfare of our pupils and always complete projects or address issues as quickly as they can. During implementation of projects they are very respectful in how they carry out the work ensuring that it is undertaken during a suitable time to ensure minimal disruption to school life. They provide clear and prompt advice which as a school leader is very reassuring. As a school leader I would highly recommend SMG to other educational professionals.

“"A big thank you to SMG for our office renovation project which involved the complete removal of constructed offices and installation of a power and data supply to create an operational open plan working area for our staff. The workmanship is absolutely excellent and to come into a spotless/tidy/clean area after a full weekend of works is almost unheard of in my FM experience. The team are all very professional and completely understand the importance of not leaving a corporate industry site/work area in an unfinished or unsightly way. Thank you also for working to and meeting our deadlines."
