We moved into our house a year ago knowing that the property would require extensive rebuilding and repairs to turn it into the house of our dreams and a family home that would work for us. We knew that choosing the building contractor would probably be the single most important decision we had to get right and we did just that. I appointed Steve in early February with the promise that work would start in the first week of August and it did on the exact day Steve stated it would. 6 months later the team left us with what was our dream family house. In what was a large project which had to overcome some shoddy previous building work and make extensive structural changes. From a new roof to changing nearly every room and rebuilding the back of the house, fitting kitchens, bathrooms, new electrics etc.
All work was done to the highest standard of work and any problems were overcome quickly and Steve kept us informed all the way through the project. His planning was great. We moved out during the major parts of the work and had no hesitation in Steve and the team looking after our property which they did with no issues. Whilst we still lived there the team were considerate at all times of us and were great with our two young children. As I mentioned the most important part of any building work is getting the right builder, with George Hicks and Sons you will. I am happy to give any references or would be willing if required to show anyone the work the team did.
Samardzija - Two storey extension and refurbishment , Loughborough
George Hicks and Sons Ltd have just finished a large single story extension to the kitchen of our town house which is in the Victoria Street Conservation area. We chose Hicks on recommendation from others and for the fact that they understand old properties. The work was completed to the highest of standards and attention to detail is superb - although the extension is large and contemporary, it blends naturally into the house. Steve and the rest of the boys are lovely to deal with; always pleasant, utterly professional and unbelievably tidy!!! The disruption to our lives was minimal and the neighbours made constant remarks as to how nice they all were! We would recommend them completely - everyone is commenting about how stunning our kitchen is, and it is all down to them - they were great!

Many thanks for all your time and effort in making our house extension experience such an easy and pleasant one.
Taylor - Single storey extension, Loughborough
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and all the team for doing an excellent job in building my house extension. The standard of service that I received and the work done was exemplary. I was also very impressed with your attention to tidiness around my house when needing access to facilities. I have had a lot of comments from people living nearby saying that the work has ‘curb appeal’ and one or two have asked me for your contact details which I have passed on. I would have no hesitation in recommending you and the team and would be more than happy to supply references to any future prospective customers.
Heath - Single storey extension with integral garage, Loughborough
We had George Hicks and Sons remove the wall between our kitchen and dining room. From the first phone call to the final invoice we were impressed by the professional attitude of the builders. They were punctual, friendly and polite, and we knew what was going on throughout the build. The cost was comparable to other quotes we received, and the finished work was to a high standard. Overall, we were very pleased with the work, and would definitely use George Hicks and Sons again.
Murray - Kitchen extensions, Loughborough
George Hicks & Sons proved to be totally professional in their approach, competent, reliable, honest and trustworthy, clean working and knowledgeable about the building industry. Above all, they were friendly and approachable. They put themselves out to offer advice and resolve any problems that arose from the building work. They also project managed their own sub contractors to ensure that we were caused the absolute minimum of inconvenience. I will certainly use them in the future for any building work and would have no hesitation in recommending them to prospective customers.
Fowler - Single storey extension and alterations, Loughborough
We are so pleased with the loft conversion that George Hicks and Sons did for us in the summer, the craftsmanship and attention to detail is faultless and this major alteration to our Victorian house seems to blend in and has not changed the overall feel and style of the property, George Hicks and Sons have an obvious understanding and respect for older properties. Steve, Jamie and Lee are completely professional and extremely understanding and sensitive, this made it possible during the building work for us to live a (nearly!) normal life with our two very young children – our three year old really missed them when they had finished and still talks about them! The job was started and completed on the exact dates specified in the original agreement and Steve and Jamie took great care to leave the house very clean and tidy. They even looked after our rabbit when we were away! I would recommend them without hesitation.
Firth - Loft conversion, Loughborough
Quality craftsmanship, excellent customer service, reliable and trustworthy – George Hicks and Sons is the best of the many building companies that I have contracted. Steve Hicks managed the project very efficiently; informing and consulting with me at every stage. The project started and ended on schedule and on budget. The Hicks’ family, their crew and subcontractors were a pleasure to deal with. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again. I recommend George Hicks and Sons wholeheartedly.
Evans - Extension to property above ground floor kitchen, Loughborough
G Hicks and Sons started work on a 6 month project to transform our house, building a new extension and changing internal walls and doors. Throughout the project communication was excellent with Steve ensuring that we, the architect and all the subcontractors knew exactly what was happening and when. Steve, his builders and the sub-contractors that he employed were extremely considerate and made sure disruption to our day-to-day lives was as minimal as possible. With 3 small children this was important to us, and the kids still ask after their favourite builders! We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the firm to anyone and are absolutely delighted with the finished product.
Davies - Single storey extensions and conversion of garage, Loughborough
We’re very pleased we chose George Hicks & Sons for our garage conversion. The work started on time and finished ahead of schedule. We wanted the new room to match the existing house as far as possible and they were able to get good matches for the bricks, doors, brassware, artexing etc. etc. The quality of their work is good and Steve (Hicks) was frequently on-site just to make sure everything was going satisfactorily and to plan. We’d happily recommend them.
