We were introduced to the Coverdales by our neighbour and would highly recommend them. The clarity of the project management both on and off site was highly professional, with friendly, skilled efficient craftsmen, as a consequence the whole experience was far less stressful than could have been the case. So thank you to all.

    Since the purchase of my period property in Norwich City center, i have had many repairs and alterations to the house. I have always had very professional and high quality service from N.F Coverdale Ltd, a building and restoration company that i would recommend without hesitation. At every point of the organisation of the works to be done, and during the time the team have been in the property, everything was explained to me, and the work completed by a cheerful, honest and helpful team of highly skilled men who managed to keep the disruption to my life minimal, and who were praised by the neighbourhood. Many thanks to everyone involved, was truly a pleasure!


    I wanted to express my sincerest gratitude for you and your team's hard work. As you know, my previous experience of builders was not altogether positive! NF Coverdale exceeded all my expectations and has completely restored my faith in the building trade. The cheery, helpful and optimistic can-do attitude of all workmen and contractors along with your detailed communication, organisation and willing assistance and advice at all times made this experience a wholly positive one. Your regular progress visits give me complete confidence that all work met the highest quality and standards. I was also amazed that the final invoice was on budget, especially given the additional items. I cannot recommend you and NF Coverdale highly enough for your exceptional professionalism, attention to detail and overall efficiency.

    We are pleased to have an opportunity to recommend Nigel Coverdale. Our barn restoration was a challenging project. All who contributed towards the excellent finished result, worked conscientiously and with "old fashioned" expertise. We were especially happy with the confident approach at all times by Robert who involved us at little or as much as we wanted whilst work was in progress. Robert sustained good communication between our selves, other employees and adjoining neighbours. With this high standard of teamwork, our barn conversion was carried out both sympathetically and professionally. We have an exceptionally well restored building which was nominated for a Broadland District Council Enhancement Award.

  • Our listed 1600s farmhouse needed complete refurbishment 15 years ago. NFC dealt with the planning and building control and then completed tricky structural internal rebuilding, plastering, plumbing, flooring, decorating and refurbishment. He was constantly helpful with design ideas and drwaings. Subsequesntly we have asked NFC to build a conservatory, replace our roof and many other smaller and specialised jobs. Nigel and his staff have always been helpful, adaptable, easy to contact, and very reliable. We receive itemised written estimates which are then adhered to, jolly employees who clear up daily, and excellent technical work. We have been consistantly happy with the very high standard of workmanship and professionalism which NFC has delivered.

  • Nigel Coverdale and team did a terrific job. My property is a listed building, constructed more than 200 years ago, and the Conservation officer is very particular about the exact look of the doors and windows - they're clearly visable from public highway. Nigel was careful in working precisely to the brief and producing period windows that exactly matched the originals. Fine craftmanship, installed on time and precisely as per the quotation.

    Eades Mill - Barney Jones

  • We are delighted with the renovation work that Nigel and his team carried out, including renovating our old fire place and installing a wood burner. All works were carried out vert sympathetically on a very old fire place, the attention to detail was outstanding to ensure that all new works blended totally. The work was completed on time, as quoted and with minimal upheaval - a very pleasent experience - we would not hesitate to recommend them.

    Burberis House - Carl & Chris Durban

  • We were extremely happy with all the projects undertaken by NF Coverdale. The "can do" attitude when faced with a problem is fantastic. The quality of workmanship was very high and equally as important, the workmen in our house became part of the family, were really good with our young and inquisitive children and were a pleasure to have around. I can highly recommend them and will be using them again for future projects.

    Turner - Norwich

  • Friends recommended Nigel's team to us and we were delighted that they did. Not only was the work to our period cottage carried out on time and on budget, but the ream were a pleasure to deal with, keeping us up to date with progress at all times. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to our friends too.
