Butterworth Cox transformed our 17th century thatched house, replacing the bathrooms, the floor finishes and redecorating throughout. They did a first class job at a reasonable price - master builders. I have no hesitation in recommending them for future work.

Anthony Charnley

We have used Butterworth Cox for the last 15 years whenever we have needed any building work carried out, and have always been extremely satisfied with the results.
The work is always carried out in a timely manner to an extremely high standard and to budget. David Cox is a perfectionist and treats every piece of work as if he were doing it for himself.

Peter Cooper

Having bought a very tired home, David stepped in and did some very pleasing alterations immediately, all of which were to a high standard. A little later I finally got planning permission for an extension. Despite the Covid hitch I had no hesitation in asking David to complete the project.

Jennifer Edwards

ButterworthCox have done a number of jobs for me and have always been super professional. David provides great advice, ideas and completes the work to the highest standard. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Chris Moysen

Having found it difficult to find a builder who would quote for / fix a small leak in our roof, we received a recommendation to call David. He quoted promptly, attended when advised and carried the work out as described, sourcing matching tiles so the repair blended in with the original roof of the property. We found him to be friendly and reliable and wouldn’t hesitate to use his services again.
