What Customers Say About Mark Whiting

“The most trustworthy, hardworking builders I have ever come across! The attention to detail and practical solutions that Mark and his team came up with were fantastic. They are worth every penny and are reasonably priced to boot. I will definitely get them to do any future work that we need,” Jayne and David Bell, Market Weighton, 2011.

Mark Whiting and his team built a two-storey extension on our house in Spring 2011 and we have nothing but praise for them. Firstly, out of the five builders we contacted for a quotation, Mark was the only one who took the time to come and visit us in order to discuss our plans and then respond with a thorough breakdown of costs. When we were unable to afford all of the work suggested by our initial architect, Mark introduced us to an architect he knew and, between them, they worked tirelessly to help us reach an affordable solution without compromising the quality of the build. In fact, if it hadn’t been for their hard work and understanding of our requirements, the build probably wouldn’t have gone ahead at all. During the build, Mark and his team exceeded all our expectations and provided us with an outstanding level of craftsmanship and customer service. Mark’s expertise and attention to detail are second-to-none and he really excels in customer care, always finding solutions to problems before you’re even aware they exist. Our neighbours and friends were so impressed with his work that several of them asked for his contact details and we were very happy to oblige. We cannot recommend him highly enough!” Jane & Peter Smith, York, 2011.

“We had a lath and plaster ceiling taken down in our living room, timber beams exposed and a six metre structural support beam installed. All the work was completed to a good standard and the work started and finished on schedule. The site was left clean and tidy on hand over. We would be pleased to recommend Mark Whiting Builders.” Andrew Hine, Bishop Wilton, York, 2011

Mark Whiting undertook building works for us in 2008 and 2010. Both times, he accompanied us from the beginning with sound and well-thought through advice on the best solutions for rebuilding our house, that had been built, rather badly, in the 1970s. During the building work, Mark and his team of three were helpful, polite and coped with every obstacle thrown in their way professionally and efficiently. Due to the poor build of our house there were a number of unforeseen problems, that Mark sorted out to everyone’s satisfaction. Mark works closely with an excellent draftsman, a plumber and electrician, and has other contacts which means that the work goes smoothly.We have recommended Mark to several friends and all of them have also been very happy with his work.’ Malin Holst, Bishop Wilton, York, 2010

We wanted to add a fourth bedroom to our Victorian property, but we had a limited budget. Mark Whiting helped us to achieve our goal, introducing us to architects and working with us from the planning stage all the way to supervising the plumbers and electrical fittings. I can’t recommend them enough.Richard Minion, Bishop Wilton, York, 2010.
