We recently had a major extension/refurbishment of our kitchen completed by Distinction. From start to finish, all the tradesmen that entered our home undertook their work in a friendly and professional manner. The works foreman, in particular, was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble for him. In addition, their timekeeping was immaculate. Our family kitchen has been transformed and draws admiring comments from all who enter. We would have no hesitation in using Distinction again, or in recommending them to others.

Distinction renovated our bathroom, replaced the water supply pipe and dug an outside soakaway. Their estimate wasn't the cheapest but they were worth it. The work included plastering and tiling, plumbing and electrical work along with installing all fittings. Their advice and estimating was thorough: they gave us exactly what we asked for, to timetable. Workmanship was careful and well finished. They were good company in the house and kept everything clean and tidy. I gladly recommend them

I have used Distinction to create a new en-suite bathroom, to renovate the family bathroom, the ground floor cloakroom and for several maintenance projects, including roof work. I have found their craftsmen to be personable and reliable, skill levels to be high and the whole outfit to keep their promises and deliver a good job on schedule.

Peter Crosse

I highly recommend Distinction Property Services-they created a new bathroom for us, a beautiful kitchen extension, a garage, outside terracing and service our boiler! The staff are professional, efficient and respectful they take pride in their individual roles as well as the project as a whole. The after care service is second to none and the on-going support is SO reassuring.

I decided to use Distinction because they had a good reputation (I'd asked around) and I wanted a firm which could manage the entire job rather than using multiple trades people.

I can't fault their professionalism, they always turned up when they said and did the work to the highest standards.  This firm deserves their good reputation and are both efficient and cost-effective. The acid test though is whether I'd use them again. The answer is an unhesitating yes. Don Buckland and his team have integrity, something that seems to be in ever shorter supply these days.

Having had two bathrooms, a kitchen and external work done by Distinction I can thoroughly recommend this company. The team take care in their work and are a pleasure to have in the house. They are led by Gareth Guiver, a perfectionist who goes out of his way to work with his customers and always takes the trouble to explain the process. Little things are dealt with as much care as the bigger issues and always with a smile.

This is the first time I have ever recommended builders as I've been let down in the past by others in the building trade. This is not the case with Distinction. They commenced the work, stayed on target and finished the project to the dates as promised. The job was done to a high specification from beginning to end. Their employees take great pride in their skills but are also kind, considerate, tidy and a delight to have around. I am delighted with the final outcome. I would happily recommend this friendly and honest business to anyone looking for anything from a small household project to a major renovation. Truly professional from beginning to end.

Distinction built an extension for us and renewed our roof. Excellent service: they turn up when they say they are going to turn up, produce clear and realistic quotes, easy to communicate with, offer good advice and act with integrity. They can provide all the trades with the people that they have a long-term relationships with. They understand the nature of domestic work and that they are building in people's homes.

In short, I have found Distinction provide an excellent and reliable service. They were recommended to me, and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others. 

Mark Gilbertson

Distinction built a single story extension on the back of our house and knocked into the main house creating a fantastic kitchen / living / dining / utility / toilet. The standard of work is excellent, the boys work hard and attention to detail is very good. Gareth the boss is professional through and through and even his aftercare has been fabulous. I suspect they are not the cheapest but you get what you pay for. 

I would highly recommend them. 

Rachel M

Distinction built a 2 story side and single story rear extension with other general renovations. While they may not be the absolute cheapest the standard of service, approach and finished results combined does represent good value overall. Any questions, challenges and issues that do arise are handled professionally, swiftly and without drama. 

Dave Bridgewater

This company built us a large two storey, full house width extension. They were very professional and approachable from the first meeting, work started and finished on time, even though there was a two week delay during the build, which was out of their control. All the staff were polite and went out of their way to make sure we knew what was going at all times. They always left the site clean and tidy at the end of the day knowing we were still living in the house during the build. Any issues or problems were dealt with speedily. We would have no problems recommending them to any prospective home owner thinking about having work done on their house by this company. 

Mr & Mrs Dunlop


We've met most of the Distinction team during recent years, all are utterly professional, efficient, approachable, helpful, polite and communicative whilst constantly striving for the highest standards in all areas of their work. Excellent planning means time schedules are met and if issues arise during or after a project they are discussed and dealt with promptly and without fuss. We look forward to welcoming them back to our home again in a few weeks' time to embark on the next phase of our renovations. Thank you Distinction Property Services. 

Alison Blancke

Distinction Property Services completed a major side and rear single storey extension to form an extended lounge /garden room with integrated store and utility room involving some challenging structural steelwork. We are delighted with our choice of builder and with the end result. Although not the cheapest in terms of cost the Distinction team have provided an excellent service from start to finish, demonstrating excellent project management skills and keeping us informed at all times with minimal disruption. Build quality and professionalism across all trades has been excellent. We would have no hesitation in recommending Distinction Property Services to anyone seeking a high quality builder in the Bristol area.

I regularly use Distinction on refurbishment projects for private residences. They are professional in their approach and always deliver a good service. 

Nicky Ford

My wife and I have used Distinction Property Services on more than one occasion from working with our interior designer, decorating, advise on design and building construction. We found Distinction responsive, reliable and knowledgeable with excellent interpersonal skills. The work was of a very high standard and the work area was left clean and tidy at the end of each day. We were never in the dark regarding either the work undertaken or planned going forward.

Loft conversions

I have used the Distinction team to manage several properties over the past few years & couldn't live without them. They turn up on time & clean up afterwards, a miracle. Jobs include new bathroom & walk in wardrobe to my previous home, complete major renovation of four storey townhouse including bathrooms, kitchen, rewiring & replumbing, knocking out back wall for French doors to patio,  installing a gorgeous juliette balcony & doors to first floor kitchen, instating a new fire place, full scaffolding, decorating & gardening. Mostly done in my absence providing excellent project management & quality standards I know I can trust. 

Judy Denham

New extension, bathroom, kitchen. Re plastering (including cornicing), decoration of Victorian house. Prompt efficient service. Workmen worked full days and remained on site until the works were completed on schedule. Excellent attention to detail and nothing a problem. 

Dr Connor Hichens

I have used Distinction several times over the last 2 years, for interior decoration and updating work and roof repairs. They provide a streamlined service organising all the different trades you need, high quality work and clear quotes and time tabling. All the guys who have then carried out the work have been friendly, helpful and conscientious and they clearly take pride in their work as any snagging has been sorted out quickly and without fuss. I am very happy to recommend them. 

Sara Whiteley

Distinction Property Services has carried out both internal alterations and external building works at the surgery. The tradesmen are all professional and trustworthy, and the quality of their work is of a high standard. We have used builders, painters, plumbers, electricians and carpenters. Communication is easy as the email address is checked regularly. If I have had any concerns then they were sorted out quickly. I would recommend Distinction Property Services for both business and residential work.
