Read what our clients have to say about us, from partnering with interior design business to meeting personal home extensions Buckinghamshire and surrounding areas demand.


We employed Sansom Construction to build our new single storey garden room extension in 2013 based on a recommendation from friends. We provided Paul with drawings and specification prepared by our architect. Paul priced the project up front in a clear and transparent manner and made a number of practical suggestions to improve the outcome and the cost. We found him to be very competitive on price.

The project itself included a number of unusual materials (metal roof, timber cladding, exposed roof beams, underfloor heating) which Paul and his team executed professionally and to a high standard. Paul also managed a number of client changes to the design and materials along the way and kept us appraised of the impact on cost and programme.

The team were considerate builders keeping a tidy site and were friendly, diligent and hard working. Snagging at the end of the job was dealt with in a timely and cooperative manner. We would certainly be happy to use Sansom Construction for any future building work we carry out.

Richard Kolb, Woodfield Park, August 2013


We hired Paul and his team to build a single storey extension to the rear of our property including for works on the boundary with our adjoining neighbour. Paul was very thorough in his approach coming and discussing with us the detail of the quote so we understood what was and wasn’t included, realistic timescales and approach to working together before starting the work. The works started on the agreed date, were completed on time and without any surprises regards budget. Paul and his team were very aware and respectful of the environment; the works being undertaken under the constant ‘watchful eye’ and ‘questioning’ of our two young boys (2 and 3 ½) who kept an eye on quality and progress! Paul and his team were also very respectful of our neighbours with the extension being on the boundary with them and the works requiring access to their garden; this extended from meeting with our neighbour prior to starting and communicating on progress throughout. In short, we are very pleased with our extension, the work and attitude of Paul and his team and wouldn’t hesitate to use Sansom Construction in the future or recommend them to others.

Neil Binns, Bayleys Hatch, August 2013


Living in Essex and Wimbledon we were very fortunate to be recommended Paul and his lovely team to renovate our mother’s house following her death. We recommend them highly and the whole team was professional and produced work of a very high quality. They were unfailingly courteous and helpful. As we lived such a distance away it was good to know that the project was in such capable hands. We only wish they were based in Essex. In all a lovely experience and we would recommend Paul and his team for an excellent service.

Claudia Rumsey & Barbara Davies – Colville Court, June 2013

I was very happy with our single-storey extension completed by Sansom Construction. The whole team of people who worked on the project were pleasant, hard-working and maintained a high standard of workmanship. The quotation was competitively priced, and Sansom Construction was attentive and amenable to fulfilling any of our changing requirements during the build which was completed on schedule. I am very happy to recommend them.

Dr. John Summers. Nairdwood Way, June 2013

Thanks to Paul, Ricky and the team for a great job. We had a 2 storey extension plus internal works and would highly recommend their services. Right from the quoting stage, everything was transparent and we were kept updated on a regular basis. They worked on site when they said they would, through wind, rain and snow, and the project came in on time and under price. Thanks again, we would not hesitate to contact you again in the future.

Mr R Deering, Amersham, March 2013


Paul and his team did a really excellent job on our side extension from start to finish. His quote was clear, comprehensive and detailed and he made sure that we understood what was included and what wasn’t. He organised the project efficiently, bringing in a great set of tradesmen, with no time lost waiting. His team worked hard and were wholly reliable, getting through a lot each day and making sure that we knew where things had got to. When decisions were needed, Paul talked us through the options and ensured we got what was right for us. When we made changes, he incorporated them with minimum fuss and ensured that we knew what they would mean in terms of cost. His attention to detail was excellent and he made sure that everything was finished off to a really high standard. We are delighted with our new space and couldn’t have asked for more.

Cath Jenkins, Pines Close, December 2012


In 2012 we chose Sansom Construction to build a two-storey extension to our cottage and make major alterations to the internal space of the rest of the building. It was to be a 6 month project and we were to live there with our 3 children while the work was being done. From the start Paul was happy to give us a detailed breakdown of all the costs and the project came in only slightly over budget and all from agreed additions. He was very considerate of me and the children and his staff were all pleasant, cheerful and polite and cleaned up after themselves so we weren’t in a complete mess. They worked continually and efficiently on this project and did not leave until it was finished. I had employed a designer/project manager and she and Paul maintained an excellent working relationship. Any problems were dealt with by open and clear discussions between myself, Paul and the project manager.
Having the builders in is never easy but this was as pleasant an experience as it could have been. The quality of the build is excellent and we are left with a very beautiful new home.

Sarah McIntyre, Orchard Cottage, 2012


Paul has carried out 2 projects for us and we have been delighted with both of them. The quality of work is excellent, his prices are fair and he and his team are professional and a pleasure to have around.
We are very happy to recommend him and will be using him again for any building works we undertake in the future.

Iwan and Val Emmanuel, Hill Farm Road, October 2012

I am an interior designer and have been working for 15 years in the industry, I have just completed a project in Gt Missenden which entailed demolishing and rebuilding a two storey wing of a house together with major internal alterations. Right from the beginning of the tender process through to the completion of the project Paul showed himself to be a thorough, trustworthy and extremely honest person to work with. Making time to go through the pricing of the project at the beginning and at every subsequent weekly meeting we had.

Paul and his team were a pleasure to work with touching base with me and the Client whenever there was a decision to be made. They had enormous respect for the Client and understood their difficultly in living on a building site. The project was finished early and was just over budget, (having added a few things that were not in the original budget). I cannot recommend Paul and his team highly enough so far to say that it would be a pleasure to work with them all the time, if only they would come to London!

Paul, thank you so much for making that project a joy to work on.

Alison Richardson, Director, Richardson Design Limited, London, November 2012

We hired Paul and his team to build a two-storey extension to our house in Amersham, after going out to tender to his and two other firms recommended by our Architect. From the start, Paul’s approach was very professional, taking us line-by-line through a detailed quote, explaining in laymans term exactly what would be delivered and providing us with a realistic timetable. The build started on schedule, then progressed rapidly to complete a few days ahead of the planned handover date, this despite our adding in a list of extra jobs as work progressed. Everything was done to a very good standard and passed the final building regs inspection without any problems. The build also came in right on the price quoted.

Paul’s team, led on-site by son Ricky, were consistently cheerful and very professional – for example, doing whatever they could to reduce the ongoing mess and cleaning up properly at the end of every day – and he has some real craftsmen on the team. The end result is a properly built, well-finished extension, which we moved into the day the team left site.

Overall, Paul and the team at Sansom Construction have restored my faith in humanity (well, in builders, anyway…). After years of using one builder after another who have, for various reasons, let us down on either quality or timeframe (and usually both), it has been really refreshing to find one who just gets on with the job quickly and efficiently, and delivers a true quality result, on schedule. I can’t recommend Sansom Construction strongly enough and we will definitely use them next time we undertake any building work.

Mr A Gillett, Amersham, April 2012

Paul has created an extension on our home that is more stunning than we could have ever imagined. His work is perfect, professional and considered. He is very knowledgeable, patient and thorough; happily discussing any part of the work. He has an excellent team, whom he insists follow his high standards of workmanship and customer care.

Paul is very aware of the disruption building work can cause to the lives of home owners and made us all as comfortable and unaffected as possible.

We found his costs to be very fair. Paul provided a comprehensive breakdown of each aspect of the job. He helped us to make savings in several areas, without impacting on the functionality or beauty of the extension.

We intend to employ Paul again to carry-out more improvements to our home over the next few years.

Mr Jarvis, South Heath, March 2012

Sansom Construction have worked for us for over 2 years, maintaining and making repairs within our offices. They are always pleasant and courteous, and extremely clean and tidy. They also always turn up when they say they will.

Heather Pritchard, Practice Manager, Allan Janes Solicitors, High Wycombe, August 2011

I would be exceptionally happy to recommend Paul and his team. His attention to detail and easy rapport with us, resulted in a faultless build quality, of which he should be very proud. His team were always polite, friendly and approachable and equally attentive to attaining Paul’s high standards.

Mr Devey, Princes Risborough, January 2011


Very competitive pricing and the job came in within budget. Paul has a friendly team who were sensitive to our needs and any concerns we had. They always arrived punctually and kept to their schedule. Paul was always at the end of the phone if we needed to speak to him. We were extremely pleased with the final result and have no hesitation in recommending him.

Christine Petty, Plantation Road, December 2010

I have had work done by Paul Sansom and his team for many years. Paul has undertaken a large house extension, then done an attic conversion, altered two rooms to en-suite bedroom and study, added a conservatory, constructed garden walls and sub-contracted a new driveway. I first used his services after a local architect recommended his workmanship and fair dealing. He has always satisfied those criteria, and I am happy to pass on my good experiences of Paul Sansom to any who wish to contact me.

Mr Taylor, Amersham, January 2010

There are tradesmen and there are craftsmen and I am so pleased to say that your company falls into the latter category. My husband and I have been absolutely delighted with the work you have carried out for us, on more than one occasion, that we can heartily recommend your company to those looking for a professional job at a realistic price.

Mrs H Wynyard-Wright, Prestwood, March 2009
