Wrenches and Pliers
  • I have used Hamilton Pierce on two consecutive house renovations over the last 6 years. My current house is a 5 bedroom 4 story semi-detached that had a severe damp issue. Russel has many years of relevant experience and he was able to analyze the problem and propose several costed options. I have always found Russell very professional and honest. I have been very happy with the quality of the work. Any minor issues have always been discussed and resolved in a timely manner.

    There are obvious unknowns when taking on an old house that needs significant work and Russell always kept me informed and explained/showed me issues that needed resolving. The work Russell and his team carried out for me included rendering, plastering, kitchen fitting, window fitting, bi-fold doors fitting, plumbing, flooring, structural changes (ceiling, floors, walls), tilling, damp proofing, and decorating. I would use Russell in the future and recommend him and his team

  • Between March and December 2015, Hamilton Pierce carried out extensive alterations to our house. The original building was a chalet style bungalow, with a shallow pitch roof which provided limited accommodation upstairs. The project involved removal of the entire roof structure and replacing with one of a steeper pitch, providing two large bedrooms, one with an adjoining dressing room, a further bathroom, a galleried landing and enlarged hallway. In addition, a large double garage and workshop was built.
    Russell visited site most days to meet with us, review progress and plan the next stages, and, when his other projects permitted, spent the day working with his team. At all times he ensured that we, his clients, fully understood each step he was planning, and that his interpretation of our wishes was correct. Based on his experience he was able to offer valuable suggestions on how we could enhance the scheme with detail alterations and additions. Pablo, as Russell’s deputy, worked full time on site. He is extremely skilled in a range of building related operations, ranging from excavator driving, through plumbing and plastering, to laying timber floors.


    Throughout the entire project, the team was friendly and courteous, and the works were carried out to a. High standard. At all times they ensured that while this was their job site, it was our home, and they did everything possible to minimise disruption and mess.

    We have no hesitation in recommending Hamilton Pierce for building works of this type, and hope that we shall have the opportunity of working with Russell and his team again.

  • To whom it may concern.

    We can thoroughly recommend Hamilton-Pierce, under their project manager Russell Johnson, who have recently completed a massive renovation project for us.


    They are not just builders, they are craftsmen. Not only is the standard of their workmanship exemplary but they take the greatest care in making everything they do look aesthetically pleasing. They are polite, courteous, reliable and exceptionally good humored, especially if their clients have changes of mind and they are always ready with creative solutions that are sympathetic to the age and style of the property in response to any unexpected problems that arise. The level of communication is of a high standard and, while they may not be the cheapest option in their field the premium is well worth it for a first class job.

  • This is just a quick note to say thank you for the fantastic job that you, Pablo and your team have done converting our kitchen and breakfast room. We are thrilled with the result and can’t believe how closely you managed to recreate our sketches and ideas whilst sticking to the budget. We now have the perfect family room and we have just enjoyed our first evening meal together looking out of the French windows onto the garden; there’s so much going on out there that we didn’t know about!

    We were a bit anxious about the disruption that such a large job would cause and really appreciated the way you cleared everywhere up each evening so that it was safe and tidy for a toddler to run around in. Everyone who was coming and going in the house was polite and friendly; you have a lovely group of people working for you.

    The finish of the kitchen is great and you did everything to ensure we were totally satisfied with the final job. We always felt that we could approach you with questions or changes and it was good to know that you would always try to accommodate our requests.

    We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to friends and family. Thank you for transforming our home. The whole house is now filled with light and we have the perfect kitchen/dining room for a growing family!

  • We can highly recommend Hamilton-Pierce, working under their project manager Russell Johnson. They have been building a complex 2-storey extension for us and have also incorporated several enhancements to the existing structure as the work progressed.


    Their team are all excellent craftsmen always working to the highest standards and producing very high quality results every time. We have enjoyed having them working on our property. They are pleasant to have around and get on with the job efficiently. They are very responsive to design changes and always ready with creative solutions when problems arise.


    Russell has made several excellent suggestions which have enabled the impact of a relatively small extension to create the feeling of a greatly enhanced space throughout our home. The level of communication is very good with frequent visits from Russell to check on progress and explain the next stage or stages in the work. We look forward to them continuing to work with us on further projects as they always produce first class work of real value which has enabled our home to be converted into a stunning and beautiful space. Our house and garden are now a real joy and in times of lockdown we have felt so lucky to live here

  • In 2013/2014 Hamilton-Pierce built for us a two story extension by rebuilding the garage (providing direct access from the house) and utility room and creating two additional bedrooms above. In addition the existing interior was revamped [creating a new family bathroom and an en-suite to the master bedroom] and improved [with upgrades to the heating and hot water systems and refurbishment of the existing roof). The work was carried out over the winter 2013 / spring 2014.

    Throughout every stage of build [from the initial demolition phase, ground works, exterior and interior building works to completion), and despite being undertaken during some periods of extreme weather, Hamilton-Pierce made every effort to maintain the momentum of the project with the least practicable disruption to our daily life.

    The finish of the kitchen is great and you did everything to ensure we were totally satisfied with the final job. We always felt that we could approach you with questions or changes and it was good to know that you would always try to accommodate our requests.

    Without exception we found everyone involved to be very capable, talented, professional, thoughtful, considerate, polite and hard working.

    They were also extremely accommodating, at every stage discussing with us our wishes and suggesting how they might best be achieved. We believe they are a company that genuinely care, and want you to love what they build. The attention to detail has been excellent and thanks to the capability and skill of those involved the extension blends in extremely well, like it was always part of the original (1935) building.

    In conclusion we are extremely pleased and happy with the final outcome and quality of workmanship.

  • We can unreservedly recommend Hamilton-Pierce as a building contractor that we would use again and again. In fact over the past 15 years they have been responsible for a wide variety of tasks both in our present house and previous home, which was an eight bedroom seafront hotel.

    Work has ranged from building an extension in our current home, fitting new kitchens in both properties, refurbishing bathrooms and installing en-suite showers and toilets in our hotel, window replacement to most recently replacing all guttering and down pipes. No job was ever too small and on the couple of occasions when we had a problem with water leaks in our hotel Russell would respond immediatly to get us out of trouble and minimise the damage which water can cause.

    We have recommended Russell and Pablo to many of our friends and acquaintances seeking honest and reliable and trustworthy contractors.

    I have never had any concerns about them holding a key to our property in fact we have left them to continue working while we have been away on holiday.

  • Having interviewed several local builders to take on my loft-conversion project I eventually found Hamilton-Pierce. Once I’d met Director Russell Johnson, for the first time I felt reassured that my building project would be undertaken in a thoroughly professional manner. Russell took the trouble to visit several times to talk over the project, look at different possible options for the design and explain how the building work would proceed. The whole team of carpenters, plumbers, plasterers, tilers, fitters and painters are top class. They take great care with their work and have pride in the finished result; a veritable team of master craftsmen. The loft-conversion was taking shape so wonderfully that I decided to extend the project into a kitchen redesign, whilst the team were still on site. The kitchen has been crafted most beautifully and the attention to detail is incredibly fine, every effort being taken by the team to make certain the design was exactly as desired. Hamilton-Pierce is a first-class company providing outstanding quality and delivery on every level and I am delighted with the very significant building upgrade in my home.

  • Dear Russell,

    As our work is nearing completion Maggie and I would like to express our heartfelt appreciation of the fantastic job you have made of our alterations. In these days when one struggles to find a decent and reliable builder your firm are in a different league completely. I even hesitate to call you a builder in fact; your firm is far more akin to a specialist group of artisans and craftsmen. The standard of finish is in a league of its own and the results are just stunning. On the management side of things, your coordination with architects, structural engineers and council building control agencies from our point of view appeared virtually seamless and such obstacles that appeared were dealt with in a very timely and efficient fashion. Lastly, your advice to us on some aspects of the project, where your experience guided us away from potential mistakes, was invaluable,

    Very best of wishes,

    John & Maggie Russell.

  • I wanted to thank you and the guys for the work you did, the quality of the work was outstanding, the attention to detail and the finishes all exceeded our expectations and we are really happy with the end result. The team were all friendly and professional and your communication throughout the process and whilst dealing with any concerns was top class.

  • " If it wasn’t for Russell’s can-do attitude and vision we may not have started our build, after over a year of plans and costs trying to get it going, but we are so glad that we did as Hamilton Pierce have delivered exactly what we had envisioned and we are delighted with the result.


    Our experience with Hamilton Pearce has been very positive throughout. Remarkably different to that of many of our friends and family who have undertaken similar residential construction projects with other builders.  We highly recommend their services to anyone seeking a professional, trustworthy and experienced team. The communication, personality and openness to consider, and to work through any tweaks and take on board our ideas, and the relative ease from start to finish has been excellent. 


    We feel fortunate to have met Russel, Pablo and team. The Hamilton Pierce team have been, without exception, totally considerate and personable.  Russell’s daily visit to the site ensured a good experience and top quality end result"
