Feedback / Testimonials
Kennneth Semple, Grangemouth said on 15/07/2020:
I needed some roughcasting done on my back-exterior wall after an elderly neighbour had inadvertently lost control of his car and damaged the exterior. Alan responded quickly to my e-mail queries and provided a fair quote for the work. The work was done quickly and professionally. I will use Alan again for future jobs and recommend him.
Doug R, Shieldhill said on 26/06/2020:
Wilson’s carried out a renovation project on the exterior of our building in late June 2020. From commissioning to finish, Alan Wilson kept in touch with us. We were given a realistic timeline for the work. They arrived on site as scheduled each day and physical disruption was kept to a minimum. Parking where we stay is tight and they took this into account as they worked. The actual workmanship was of a very high standard! They cleaned up the site at the end of each day and very, very thoroughly at the end of the project. The price for the project was very competitive. Highly recommended.
Jan Fletcher, Stenhousemuir said on 09/12/2019:
Alan opened up the back of our roof and was able to extend two of our bedrooms and install a bathroom. At ground level, Alan constructed a sunroom measuring 4m x 4m. Alan has previously carried out work for us, which we were very happy with, so when it came to this we didn’t even look elsewhere. Alan does what he says he will, when he says he will and always keeps you up to date. Alan is very helpful and easy to get on with. He has a good eye for the finished project and provides good advice and suggestions. The standard of Alan’s work is excellent, as is the standard of the associated contractors that Alan supplies. We are planning further work in the future and it will definitely be Alan who carries it our for us. I would very much recommend Alan to anyone.
Mrs Sinclair, Grangemouth said on 09/12/2019:
Alan has recently carried out work for me at my house. He has built a sun-room that has Velux windows and patio doors on to the back of my kitchen. He has installed a brand-new kitchen and has also done work for me in my living room. I am really pleased with all the work carried out and Alan is so nice to deal with. There were no problems at all, and I would definitely recommend Alan.

Philip Jackson, Edinburgh said on 13/07/2017:
We had Alan in to knock down a wall between kitchen and dining room to create a large open family area. Can’t praise Alan’s attitude, approach and work highly enough. He clearly knows what he’s about and the contractors used (joiner, heating, plumber, plasterer etc.) were all highly competent. Alan has an easy and open manner which made it very easy to discuss the project and make decisions as required. Completed exactly on time and for the expected price. The finished room is absolutely fantastic. Cheers Alan.
Peter Bates, Dunipace said on 07/06/2017:
We have just had Alan Wilson and his colleague completely re-pave our front path. From the initial contact we had with Alan, his service has been first class. He selected the slabs for us, got just the ones we wanted, and made a superb job of laying the path. He even made a slight adjustment to a rather troublesome step, and completely eliminated a trip hazard. The finished job looks so much better than before. Also, everything was left clean and tidy. We have no hesitation in recommending him.
Mrs Macfarlane said on 07/03/2017:
Alan Wilson and his team carried out remedial work on our slabbed driveway after a previous tradesman did a poor job. I have waited a while before posting a review to see how our driveway has fared particularly after our previous experience. 3 months on and we are delighted to say that our driveway still looks fab and sturdy. We found Alan and his team to be punctual, professional, polite and very tidy.
Chris Harris said on 05/12/2016:

I would thoroughly recommend Alan. Regards Chris

Mrs Malone, Camelon said on 02/12/2015:
The lintel above my back door was crumbling and I thought I’d need to replace it. I called Alan out and after investigation he confirmed that it was basically sound enough to repair. He plastered it and roughcast it and I was very happy with both the job and the price. He could easily have made it the bigger job for himself and charged me more, so I was really impressed at his honesty. I would definitely have him back again.

J Jones, Brightons said on 04/09/2014:
I would like to recommend the services of Alan Wilson who completed the removal and rebuild of our garden wall recently. He was very professional in all his work, providing additional information and samples of bricks to help us decide on the final choice of stonework. He and his colleague Joe were extremely hard working and completed the work on time and cleared up the site at the end of each day. We were so happy with the work that we have also had him back since to sort out a patio and additional drainage. We will definitely be using his services again in the future.
J Dougall said on 02/09/2014:

J Dicker said on 23/08/2014:
I had Alan Wilson out to sort my garage wall that was collapsing. He put in 6 ties that were unobtrusive and made a really good job. He was a wee bit late arriving as he’d been held up at the previous job, but it didn’t matter. He knew exactly what needed doing and he just got on with it. I’m an 80 year old lady and very wary of tradesmen, but Alan was very nice and very good. He charged me £50 but I hadn’t change so he just took £40. I was well pleased overall and would definitely recommend him.
M Hughson, Grangemouth said on 17/08/2014:
Alan Wilson made an excellent job replacing a concrete windowsill. I would definitely use him again and highly recommend him.
Pete, Grangemouth said on 18/07/2014:
Once again I have used Alan Wilson the builder to rough cast the out side of my house and painted. The work carried out was of high quality standard and done at a very reasonable price. No mess left afterwards. No wonder people come back time and time again to Alan I won’t go past him, I highly recommend him for any building task.
Lynn Hunter, Grangemouth said on 01/08/13:
Wilson Building Services – just completed replacing our double driveway which included breaking up & removing the old concrete and red chips (full length of driveway and along front of house), digging trench for new mains water pipe and compacting it after refill, laying the 3×2 slabs, adding concrete butting along sides of slabs to make sure they don’t shift, laying weed prevention liner and topping off with 3 tons of new stones. Also put in new edging and tarmac at pavement to give good finish. Alan and Joe were really good workers, very pleasant to deal with, thorough and tidy. End result is lovely and price was better than we’d expected! Definitely recommend. Welcome to view it – 17 Victoria Rd, Grangemouth.
Gerry Harper said on 21/06/2014:
I selected Alan Wilson from your very useful TrustyTrades site to repair/restore my front garden wall. Alan completed the work in a thoroughly professional manner within the time and cost limits agreed. I am very satisfied with his work. A feature of the service was the way in which the site was tidied at the end of each day and thoroughly cleaned on completion.
Mr McAuley Grangemouth said on 04/06/2014:
Wilson Building Services completed work on my driveway four weeks ago. This involved removing existing 3×2 slabs, removing a 3 square metre slab of reinforced concrete in front of garage and excavating the drive to accommodate 100mm hardcore bottoming, installing a new channel drain in front of the garage and connecting it to existing drainage system, redirecting an existing drain, laying over one hundred new 3×2 slabs and laying decorative chips between slabs. Alan’s preparation and planning was faultless. He also tried hard to carry out the work with minimum disruption to neighbours and passing traffic. Alan and his workmate Joe arrived at 8am every morning (5days) worked very hard in a safe and efficient manner leaving the site as tidy as possible each evening. Several passers-by made positive comments about their skill and endeavour. The drive looks great and I was happy with the price. I recommend Alan and Joe highly.
Mrs Murdoch, Grangemouth said on 20/03/2014:
