Hough Construction completed a two storey extension to our house in September 2015 having provided a very competitive quote to secure the job.  The work was carried out to an exceptional standard and the team were careful, courteous and worked without complaint when we made changes as the project developed.   We are very pleased with the finished job, which was delivered on time.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Hough Construction to others.

Patrick & his team have provided the Wyche Centre with a fantastic extension to our building for the youth & community of Middlewich to continue to use for many years to come. His approach to the project has been absolutely first class. From the initial consultation & quotation nothing was too much trouble to him. His professional attitude & attention to detail was of the highest standard right from the very beginning to final completion.

At all times we found the staff polite, courteous & willing to work around the demands of a busy community centre.

All the hard work raising funds to complete the work has been completely worthwhile and the quality of his work is open for all the public to see at any time. We have no hesitation in recommending Patrick & all at Hough Construction to any potential client.

I have worked with Patrick and his team on a number of consecutive projects which is testimony to the fact that he manages to combine consistently competitive pricing, very good quality workmanship and a determination to complete on time without losing focus.  The guys on site are a real pleasure to work with and Andy, the site foreman, is always concerned to deliver client satisfaction.

Hough Construction carried out the construction of a new ground floor disabled WC and store room at our surgery in Middlewich. The work was carried out to an excellent standard and completed on time and on budget.

Hough Construction undertook this work whilst the surgery was still in use and were flexible with their working hours to facilitate this and keep disruption to patients to a minimum.

We chose Hough Construction as our main contractor on a large extension and remodelling project after a full tendering process. We have been delighted with our choice.  The team are an absolute pleasure to have on site and really care about doing the best possible job.  On numerous occasions we have been impressed by their attention to detail, highlighting and following through on specific elements which might otherwise have been missed.  The project has also required some changes in design and their flexibility and professionalism in dealing with these variations has always been just right.  We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone considering similar projects.
