Mr Warne Building Contractors

Nayyar Rafique

“When friends visit the house they can’t believe how good it now looks. No one can seem to remember what it looked like before the work was carried out as it previously lost its original character and those who see it for the first time assume that the portico has always been there, a testament to Acanthus’s quality and skill. The work to the front of the house was completed the day before we opened our garden to the public under the National Garden Scheme. Acanthus were aware of our tight deadline when we placed our order with them and to their credit they and their builder did everything possible to ensure that they delivered and constructed the stonework to meet our deadline. On the day we opened our gardens the front of the house looked fantastic – and complemented the gardens perfectly. We cannot recommend Acanthus highly enough.”

Zoe Chilvers

“Just a quick note to say how pleased we are with the heads and cills, which were delivered on Wednesday. They look superb and are a perfect match to the original Victorian ones. Many thanks for sorting the order out so quickly for us.”

Mr Paul Peat

“Just a few words to say how pleased I am with the pier caps and coping which were delivered on Wednesday. They have now been bedded on the wall and it looks simply amazing. Beautifully crafted and and are a credit to your company. Once again many thanks.”

Mr Jennings

“Thank you for all your help and patience with this project.. an excellent outcome from using excellent products alongside excellent service.. everyone who visits comments on the stonework detailing, many thanks again.”

Richard Bailey

“From start to finish, the service and effort that you put into our war memorial project was superb and the final design that you came up with for us and the local authority was highly impressive. Your erection team did a superb job and the monument has quickly become a major landmark. The quality of the obelisk is fantastic and the huge number of visitors that comment on the actual memorial are testament to your ability – many thanks.”
