Given the budget we had for our extension we knew we would have to be choosing a builder with a good reputation and plenty of experience. Having had a few quotes already, we asked Damian round and we were very pleased when he showed great knowledge and confidence in delivering what we were asking for. Although we were worried about the upset a build like this could cause, Damian and his team showed up and soon put our minds at rest. Throughout the works they were friendly and helpful (even though we kept making tweaks) and solved any problems that arose. We can't thank Mick enough for his hard work on the back wall and trying to incorporate our own gate... it's perfect! Also to Grant, who was patient even when our original kitchen plans changed, as well as the plumber and the electrician for putting up with us being indecisive. And last but not least Cav, Ste and Les... your hard graft didn't go unnoticed! (You're all welcome back for a bacon sarnie!) All-in-all we chose well and we will highly recommend Damian and his team to anyone who asks. The extension gets so many compliments and is all we wanted and more...Thank you to all involved.
From start to finish we cannot speak highly enough of the onsite work team during our home being extended. They were reliable, hard working and tidy despite knocking through to the main house. Nothing was too much trouble and they were more than happy to explain processes as the build went along. The communication between builders, electricians, plumbers, joiners etc... was an unbelievable demonstration of real teamwork. The estimated build time was pretty much exact and we couldn't be happier with the finished product. We certainly know who we will use for any future building work - Damian Lee Building!
Throughout the build, from our initial meeting to after completion, Damian was honest and realistic about what we wanted to do. We are very pleased that throughout the process any additions or removals were costed in a completely transparent way. The project was delivered on time, on budget and the different trades were lined up in perfect order. Damian had regular meetings with us and always made time to take a phone call. As we proceeded Damian made sensible suggestions on any practical changes to the plans, once it started taking shape. I would highly recommend Damian Lee Building.
We recently used Damian Lee for a garage conversion at our home (to form and install a kitchen) which also involved linking the kitchen to the main house. Damian and the specialist team of tradesman were spot on throughout. They did what they said on time and on budget, were professional and courteous throughout and kept a tidy site. Highly recommended
We had an extension to our house which created a new bedroom over the garage by Damian and started last October , it took three months and was finished on time, although the weather wasn't good there was lots rain. The work has been done beautifully with Damian and Harrison keeping us updated and often came to check on the works. All the builders were friendly ,efficient and professional. We are very happy with their speedy and quality work and would recommend Damian to anyone.
We approached our project with some reservations due to previous bad experiences with other workmen. Damian came to see us in June and left us feeling confident about the whole process for our building work. The project started on time, with all the workers being prompt every day. Our foreman Zac ensured that each stage of our build went smoothly. All the builders that arrived were polite and a pleasure to have around. Nothing was too much trouble. When we needed to talk through anything Damian and Zac were always available and would pop to see us at short notice. The whole job was finished within the 15 weeks estimated by Damian. All our friends and family who have visited us since have loved the finished job. We love it and would like to thank all concerned, Damian for delivering all he promised, Louise in Accounts, Harrison in the office who was happy to correspond with us every day keeping us up to date, Zac and Phil the brick layers, Ryan and Grant the joiners, Mick the groundworker and Les for his cheerful attitude to everything he did. We would recommend Damian Lee Building Ltd to anyone.
Working with Damian Lee Building Ltd really has been an easy process from beginning to end. They are invested in their clients and want the best for them. Communication was simple and easy, via email or telephone there would always be someone available to help or advise. Thank you (Amy Reid- Lancashire County Council Community Support)
Damian and his team was very reliable, had good workmanship and was an honest builder.
We would thoroughly recommend Damian Lee building to anyone considering an extension to their property; from the outset Damian was honest and thorough with his quotation, and was happy to discuss details and any changes as the build progressed. The team were polite and professional, tidy workers who are experienced from a vast number of previous projects. The resulting extension to our property has given us more space with a great quality finish, and attention to detail that has impressed us. Thankyou to Damian and his team for their hard work and to make our ideas become reality
I would highly recommend Damian Lee building to any domestic or commercial occupants requiring any building work. We especially want to thank Damian and his employees for their consistent, exemplary professional contributions... I am more than pleased with the finished works and would pass on Damian's details with confidence to anyone wanting any building work done.
I had 2 large extensions built on my property and would class myself as a very fussy customer. Damian supported me with advice and recommendations throughout the build, he and his team were extremely flexible and professional and I was absolutely delighted with the quality of the finished build and internal work.
From the very first meeting I had with Damian, to discuss our building needs, I felt very confident in Damian Lee Building. Throughout the entire process from the initial meeting, design, planning, construction of the extension and handover at completion - I had upmost confidence and felt reassured in the abilities of the company. Damian kept me updated throughout the construction and sought approval before any last minute changes were needed. There were no hidden costs. The finished building - an extension to my children's day nursery, exceeded all expectation".
Damian Lee Building have carried out all the building work at my current home since we first moved in September 1995. In that time we have had 3 extensions and a sun room all completed to a very high standard. Damian was extremely helpful right from the start giving advice on Building Regulations and planning permission so we felt confident that everything would be carried out as was required. Always punctual, each job was finished within the specified timescale and always to our complete satisfaction. I have recommend Damian Lee Building to many of my friends and family and would not hesitate to use their services again.
If you are considering Damian Lee Building then I wouldn't hesitate to employ them. Damian and his team are professional and courteous. They were always on time, worked hard and were clean and tidy. They took extra care to minimize disruption to our lives and the rest of our house which meant we were able to live in our house as the building work was carried out. Building work can be stressful but from the outset I found Damian to be reassuring and patient, which meant I never worried about our decision to extend the house. All the trades worked with great attention to detail and as a result achieved a very high end finished result. During the build, our family found ourselves in very difficult, personal circumstances and I have to thank Damian and his team for the respect and caring attitude they all showed us. I must mention several of the guys in particular for their patience and understanding. Zac (foreman): always quick to answer my queries and keep me up to date with order of work, giving me plenty of notice when I needed to make decisions as the work progressed. Grant (kitchen fitter): apologies for making his life difficult because I choose a Swedish kitchen which he hadn't worked with before but he tackled it with good humour. Harrison (ordering supplies): Embracing my interior design ideas and helping me source fixtures and fittings that I'd seen on Pinterest rather than from the usual standard suppliers. And last but not least Ryan (joiner and master craftsman): he spent so many days with us, it felt like he was one of the family! His skill and dedication to his work was exemplary. So in short, I can fully recommend Damian Lee Building without hesitation. Thank you so much, we absolutely love the improvements to our house and will enjoy living here for many years to come.

From recommendation we invited Damian round to quote for a single storey extension to the front of our property. We worked with the Architect and Damian to ensure that the final design met our needs. During this process, which was well in advance of the building work starting, Damian kept in contact and was always happy to drop in for any further discussion and queries that we had. He was well organised in the execution of the plans and his team of builders and workmen worked to time and were friendly, trustworthy and easy to have around the property. Any issues that arose were quickly addressed and the site was visited most days by Damian himself to check progress, in addition to a weekly meeting with ourselves. Wer would highly recommend Daimian Lee Building Ltd to do any work and would certainly use the company again - superb job.
We started with an idea for a project to extend our home by converting our garage into an art studio. There were a number of possibilities for how this could be done and we consulted several local building firms to discuss and consider how things could be progressed. Damian Lee provided a prompt and efficient response to our enquiry with them, and helped with suggestions for the scheme. We felt that they were with us every step of the way, even when we changed our minds about what we wanted, concerning the plans. They were supportive at every point and gave clear advice. Prior to the work starting we felt that everything that that we had wanted had been fully incorporated into the final plan. Their quotation for the works was very competitive and Damian Lee`s team, managed to progress the planning application swiftly and we did not have to worry about anything. When the works commenced we were impressed by Damian Lee`s building and project management team, who were friendly and consulted with us at every stage, and kept us fully informed. Once work was started things started to take shape quickly and during the work itself the team took great care to work in conjunction with our neighbours, as the extension was immediately adjacent to their property. Our studio has now been completed for six months and we are delighted with the outcome. What was a rather dank flat roofed garage is now an elegant, light and airy creative space.
Following completion of our kitchen extension by Damian Lee we wanted to post a testimonial to recommend their service. From the moment the project started it was very organised, the lads were always on site early and met deadlines. We live in a small cul-de-sac and they managed to organise everything perfectly. Any problems were seen to straight away. All the lads who work for Damian Lee and the contractors work to a very high quality and are all polite and hard working. We are so pleased we chose to have the work completed by them and would recommend their service very highly.
We've had a single storey extension on our property and had never done anything on this scale before. We found Damian Lee to be professional, knowledgeable and gave us some great advice at the initial planning stage. The building team were brilliant also, in particular the foreman Damian Naylor. He was always contactable, often working late at night and didn't mind answering all my (predominantly stupid!) questions. We're really pleased with the quality of the build and would highly recommend them.
Dear Damian, I would like to express my gratitude for the way in which you and your firm completed the annexe on my home. Everything, that you said would be done, was done and my husband and I were amazed and very impressed about how quickly and reliably the work progressed right through some horrible winter weather. We very much appreciate the hard work and professionalism of your whole team and also the nice friendly attitude displayed by all of the people who worked on the project. Throughout the entire project we were kept informed with everything that was going on, any queries and questions we had were answered and sorted immediately. Each craftsman worked skilfully, it was a pleasure to see how things developed and the whole building has come together efficiently and looks lovely. Everyone who has seen it has been very impressed to the overall quality of the build. My mother is not at all sure that its all for her, but I have great peace of mind knowing that she will be in great comfort and that I can look after her in such beautiful surroundings.
