TESTIMONIALS < back to home

  • Mrs Smithers – August 2016

    “I would certainly recommend Sprinks to anyone wishing to have building/renovation work done.

    All your staff from workmen to admin were professional and most importantly friendly and helpful.

    It was wonderful to have a personal project manager and that cut down on so much of the stresses of such a project. Keith was absolutely marvelous (…) I would expect a project manager to plan, organise, schedule (…) but Keith did that plus so much more. He was not only professional but importantly to me he was so  approachable, friendly, helpful, patient and so calm and positive. I think he also ‘went the extra mile’ with advice and bringing me samples, informing me of when each decision needed to be made etc.

    (…) I was comfortable with having all of your workmen in my house which is important to me.

    (…) I am very critical so I don’t think I have ever said somebody’s work was perfect before!

    So, once again, thank you for doing the renovation work for me and thanks to your workmen.”

  • Mrs Balding – April 2016

    “From before the work started, dealing with all of the Sprinks staff and their subcontractors has been a first-rate experience. Peter was great in communicating with me as to all aspects of the project, talking me through any extra works that were required.

    I would also say that Alan and Mick, who did the initial works (…) were a pleasure to deal with, as were the subcontractors (…)

    I have recommended Sprinks to others and I hope that you do get some future projects from this.”

  • Mr Carnt – April 2016

    “KCC, in the main, rely on good working relationships between school, contractor and consultant (…) and it would appear that you have gone above and beyond that. Therefore KCC would like to add their thanks to what could have been a rather difficult project to undertake while the school was operational.”

  • Mr F Westmorland – April 2016

    “Please may I thank all of you who worked upon the repairs to the chimneys at our school (…) it is clear that the work is first class. There are many challenges, for primary schools (…) but I may say that each and every individual who worked with us filled me with the utmost confidence and delivered a sterling outcome and, might I add, in less time than the expected causing zero impact upon the running of the school.

    I feel very lucky to have worked with not only highly professional groups of contractors but also individuals who recognised the spirit and character of our school and reflected this in the way that they worked upon our buildings and communicated with my staff.

    Schools can never easily tell when they will need the services of skilled trades people but I am sure to be asking for your support the next time I have work to be done.

    Once again, many thanks for your considerate, tidy, professional and friendly attitudes and work.”

  • Mr and Mrs Cartmill – March 2016

    “We would like to take the opportunity to express our thanks for the excellent work carried out by everyone, and to Keith for his kind and patient attention. We will have no hesitation in recommending you to others.”

  • Mr and Mrs Young – January 2016

    ” I would just like to say a big thank you to all the workers Keith, Jason, Ben, Wayne and Jack for the amazing work they carried out on getting the bathroom up and running in our house last week. Their efforts were outstanding. When I told them that my daughter was coming down to stay with her newborn baby, the next day they really got on to get the bathroom up and running. We cannot thank you all enough!”

  • Mr and Mrs O’Neill – January 2016

    “Just a brief note to thank you for organising the above job and for looking after us so well during the process. We are really pleased with the quality of workmanship and the professionalism of your workmen during somewhat adverse weather conditions. Not only the standard of their work but the way they tidied up at the end of each day (perfectly house-trained!)

    We would have no hesitation in recommending you and, as discussed, will make you the first port of call as and when we require any further work undertaken. Also, could you thank Adam for his help and advice originally.”

  • Mrs Bristow – Hythe

    “Just a card to say a big ‘thank you’ for all your hard work and support. It was very much appreciated and I’ve told everyone how wonderful you were.”

  • Mr B Morris – November 2015

    “I am very pleased with the work carried out by your employees, particularly with the paintwork. Your painter had to struggle with persistent bad weather but has turned out a wonderful job. All of your men were first class throughout the job. Thank them all for me please.”

  • Mrs H Braithwaite – June 2015

    Period Property Open Plan Kitchen

    “It has been an absolute pleasure to have you and your team working here at our home, in all aspects – lovely people, positive attitudes, excellent team work and quality workmanship. We are delighted with the result, its beyond anything we dared to imagine!”

  • Mrs M J Humber – June 2015

    “I can sit back and appreciate the lovely home you have made for me in my flat. My kitchen and bathroom are absolutely perfect for my needs – they couldn’t be better – you did an excellent job organising everything – it really feels like a perfect home and I would thoroughly recommend you to anybody. I only regret not having a “before” and “after” the renovation – remarkable.

    Thank you so much for all you did.”

  • Mrs Hughes, Hawkinge Primary School, Business Manager – April 2015

    “At Hawkinge Primary School we have employed the services of Charles Sprinks many, many times over the last 10 years plus. We would never hesitate to recommend them and the services they can offer.

    Sprinks are always professional and understand the additional factors that are needed to be considered when working in a school environment. Prices are competitive and work is always to a high standard.

    We have recently paid for them to fully install a working Home Economics room, the timescale was 2 weeks and the work was complete as always within that deadline. We are happy to let Sprinks work within school without supervision or a member of staff being around.

    As a School we always contact Charles Sprinks for our building needs and will continue to do so.”

    April 2015



    “We look forward to working with Sprinks again in the coming months and thank you for always making the work you and your team do fit so easily into School life and more importantly School holidays! It makes our life so much easier that we can give you an idea of what we are wanting to achieve and you just “get it”. That isn’t always an easy task I know and being exceptionally fussy makes your job harder. We are never disappointed and would always highly recommend Sprinks and Sons for jobs big and small.

    “The toilets look fantastic so a massive thank you, the colours are super and the overall finish is just what I wanted.

    The flooring in the staff room makes a huge difference and has made a grubby muddle of a room look nice. All staff are extremely pleased and it’s just so much nicer. The upstairs loo, well it looks better!

    The Hall is the icing on the cake, I have now had the blinds fitted and it just looks great. The wood that has been taken back and restored just looks fantastic. I am so glad we kept it there. The walls and floor just make a massive difference, the kids love it, the staff love it and even visitors are commenting on it! I have to say it make us feel proud when we get such positive comments about the transformation. In the hall the red tiles on window sill have been painted, they look so much better and I want the others in the school like this.

    So there we are all good and as I said I didn’t doubt it would be. Please say thanks to all your great decorators, they work so hard and really are nice guys too.

    I am sure I will be in touch again soon, not sure what my next project will be but I will have an idea before long and then can bombard you with my wants and needs!!”

  • Mrs J Crawford – February 2015

    “My one requirement for having my bathroom changed was that it would look like a “hotel bathroom” and this has certainly been delivered. My bathroom has been completed to an extremely high quality finish and I absolutely love it. Overall the job was properly project managed with regular updates provided and the various tradesmen turned up on time and were courteous and tidy which was essential. Overall I couldn’t recommend Charles E. Sprinks and Sons highly enough.”

    “I, on behalf of Towers School have worked with Charles E. Sprinks & Sons on many projects over the last eight years and have found them to be consistently reliable and conscientious. I would always consider them for any building or refurbishment.”

  • Mrs Martin – July 2013 (Dover Harbour Board Resident)

    “Following recent repair works to ceilings in our living room and hallway, I feel it only right to comment on the excellent workmanship and standard of work carried out by the contractor employed on the job.

    I would highly recommend them to carry out any such works in any Harbour Board property with the same satisfaction that Sandra and I have experienced.”

  • Mrs G Jones – April 2013

    “I am so delighted with the finished job it looks like a new house. The two chaps that did the redecoration were superb; extremely professional and despite the dreadfully cold weather, very pleasant and cheerful. My neighbour also remarked on how good they were, not only for their excellent painting and the preparation but at the end of each day, cleaned and tidied up.”

  • Mrs Ashton – December 2012

    “Many thanks for providing me with a lovely extension to my home.

    I was very impressed with the professional, courteous and accommodating way that the work was carried out and the respect with which my neighbours and myself were treated.

    I am very pleased with the result of all your hard work and attention to detail and would have no hesitation in recommending your company to others.”

  • Mr & Mrs Anderson – October 2012

    We are writing to say how delighted we are with our new kitchen.
    It was so pleasant to have such a nice collection of people coming and going as the work progressed, how hard they worked and their dedication to producing perfection.”

    October 2012



    “This is just a note to say how very pleased we are with the conversion of our garage. It is all we hoped for.

    We would particularly like to thank Dave, Paul and Terry, Bill and Danny for their excellent work and also those who only came briefly – Terry and Barry. The plumber, window fitters and the two truck drivers delivering materials and carting away rubbish.

    It has been a great pleasure to have them with us – all cheerful and pleasant.”

  • Mr B Kemsley – September 2010

    “I would just like to record my sincere thanks for the excellent works that you have done to my property. I don’t have the time to get involved in the detail, nor the expertise, but you have managed the works, which have been trouble free throughout, on my behalf superbly.

    I would not hesitate to recommend you and your Company to anyone in need of a traditional, quality builder.”

  • Mr Sidders, Brockhill County Park Ranger – March 2009

    “I am writing to confirm that Kent County Council would like to thank you for the completion of the works at Brockhill Country Park (Café improvements).

    Thank you for the high standard of work and the helpful nature of your staff.”
