It was very easy arranging an estimate and the subsequent work. The team were careful and cleared up well each day. We opted for the external insulation followed by the cladding and we’re very pleased with the result. Thanks to Richard and team.

Review from James - Verified Customer

They were extremely accommodating to the urgency of our work, and they fitted us in the next day after unexpected storm damage. The work was completed on time and the end job finish was of excellent standard and was also reasonably priced. Richard was also very helpful in providing quotes and a breakdown of the work for insurance company purposes. I would recommend the company to family and friends.

Extremely accommodating

The work was completed as stated by Richard. Could not fault the workmanship and the price was competitive. They work in a tidy, methodical manner. The cladding has completely transformed the appearance to the rear of the property and I will have them back to do the front of the house soon. I would highly recommend this company.

Fascias to rear of property

I knew I was in safe hands with Kent Cladding from the beginning. Richard explained the whole process and I was impressed with the quality of the products he would be using. The work was carried out within a week of the quotation and was completed to a very high standard. Richard and his team were professional, polite and friendly. They worked very hard, cleaned up at the end of each day, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
