Our Testimonials

Below are a few of the things our clients have to say about us:

Tom Fountain and his team came highly recommended to us and from the outset were both professional and friendly.  He is a rare breed of builder; honest, reliable, courteous, prompt and helpful!  Not often that can be said!  Tom and his team were always available to answer questions and we trusted them to continue work even when we went away for a few days. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tom to others.

From the quote to the end of the build of our extension we were very impressed with Fountain Construction; they were very professional. The finished project was more than we had hoped for, it was beautifully built with very nice finishing touches.


Fountain Construction kept us informed throughout the build and the team was on site every day and willing to answer any questions.


The whole experience of having an extension built was an easy one. We fully recommend Fountain Construction to deliver a first-class build.

The difference with Fountain Construction is that they never let you down. After 20 years in property management, I have dealt with hundreds of builders and have never found one which is as reliable and trustworthy, as well as being friendly and easy to deal with.


What any client wants is excellent value for money, which they deliver in spades...literally!


Visitors are amazed by the high quality finish, including my brother who is a Chartered Building Surveyor.


Thanks to Tom, our house now has the 'wow factor'.

As I have no practical building knowledge, it is essential that I use  a building company that can turn my ideas into reality-This is  just what Fountain Construction have done for me, right from the designing and planning stages through to the completed project.  I would always recommend them to my friends and family.


Home Owner


I just had to write and thank you for the excellent and professional manner that ‘Fountain Construction’ demonstrated during the completion of a major extension project at my new home. I was impressed that you were prepared to spend time with me discussing design options from the outset and that you kept me informed of progress at each stage of construction.


I was particularly impressed with your patience, especially as I changed my mind on details throughout the project. I am absolutely delighted with the final outcome and my home now benefits from an outstanding ‘Orangery’ that looks original to the house. The first class standards, which are the norm for ‘Fountain Construction’, have ensured that I will remain a loyal customer and I am already looking forward to the outcome of the next project you have been engaged to undertake.


Thank you once again and I am very pleased to recommend ‘Fountain Construction’ for its professionalism and excellent service.

I am long standing customer of 'Fountain Construction’ and have had had three  substantial projects completed by the company. The first was a stunning conservatory that made maximum use of traditional brick and a double glazed frame the company’s design and finished product always engender admiration when friends visit the house. The second was the construction of a long dining and kitchen area, the company have managed to create a seamless area that has transformed the heart of the house. The third project was the construction of an en suite making maximum use of the space available. Throughout the three projects the company employees were friendly respectful and meticulous in their work. I would recommend Fountain Construction to you unreservedly

After meeting a number of builders to work on our house, which was an extensive remodeling job and an extension room the property, we chose Tom Fountain of Fountain Constructions. He was not the cheapest but he was worth every penny! He and his team did a superb job on what was a complicated project. The quality of the work cannot be faulted and his team were hard working, efficient and good honest guys. The project was completed on time and on budget and any extra work asked for, the costs were agreed in advance so there was no misunderstandings.  Any snagging was dealt with quickly and efficiently. I have no hesitation in recommending Tom and Fountain Construction and I would certainly working with them in the future again.

Tom's 'can do' & 'anything is possible attitude' made a difficult extension (due to a lack of access & split level garden) into a seamless process with absolutely fantastic results.


With our baby due on the extension start date we were dreading the start of the build. However the Fountain Team's way of going about the task put all our concerns at bay.


His creative, experienced input gave us results way beyond what we imagined. Tom and his team have turned our house into a beautiful open plan family home that has transformed our lives and added value to our house.


We can't recommend Tom & his team enough!

The most defining point about Fountain Construction is their integrity, and honesty. I’ve now used them for three separate projects on my home, and from the initial site survey to completion of each project, the service and quality of work has been excellent.


Home Owner


I have used Fountain Construction for two major projects. The first was the construction of an en-suite ground level bedroom at my own home, which also included a complete modernisation programme of the whole house and garden. This involved new bathrooms and kitchen, complete lighting and electrical overhaul, radiator and heating system overhaul, plastering and painting, new flooring throughout the house, and gardening landscaping.


Due to the success of this first project I then employed Fountain Construction for a second project at my care home for the elderly in Earls Barton.  This project required the building of three new bedrooms with en-suite shower facilities and a brand new dining room with bi-folding doors and 15 foot glass sky lantern.  The project also required internal re-structuring of the care home, an electrical and heating system overhaul as well as major garden landscaping.  Being a care home for the elderly the added complexity was that all of the works needed to conform to the standards of various statutory organisations.


With both projects I was impressed with the pro-active and meticulous manner in which Tom Fountain and his team operated.  Tom is an excellent project manager who understood the timelines and budget I had set and operated within those parameters.  Additionally, I had chosen Tom as my builder since he came highly recommended due to the quality of his work.  On both of my projects he over delivered on my expectation.  I come from a management background and that’s why I really enjoyed working with Tom.  He and his team are consummate professionals and very good at what they do.


I couldn’t recommend Fountain Construction highly enough.

We knew we needed an extension. We were very tentative at the prospect of 'Builders' invading our home. Even the contact and discussion of our needs with the 'at least 3 quotes' stage seemed like a massive trial.....and it was. That is until we spotted a 4 x 4 Flat back truck emblazoned with the slogan 'building to the future, maintaining the past'. This had to be the brain child of a'thoughtful' builder - a rare creature. Tom Fountain proved to be just that. From the initial quoting stage to the final wrap up, he proved to be an excellent project manager. His 'A' team were a mirror of his example.

An extension to the front of our house, comprising a large hallway, sitting room/creative space and shower/utility room with conversion of existing flat roof to bespoke wrapped around pitched roofing was completed in 2011. We continue to be delighted with it. Work was completed on time to a very high standard. Communication was also excellent and disruption to our daily life minimal. We have complete confidence in Tom and his team and will definitely use them again.


Mr & Mrs Bentley


Tom and his team offer a professional service from beginning to end. They were approachable during the build and responded to our queries and requests efficiently. Fountain Construction provide quality workmanship and are reliable, trustworthy and flexible.  I wouldn't hestitate to use them again. 

Home Owner


Over the years, I have used Fountain Construction on a number of building projects.  We have always found them to be very reliable and no request is too big or too small. They are a young enthusiastic team of builders providing an excellent level of workmanship and they are totally trustworthy and courteous at all times….and tidy!


Tom keeps you informed on the project and jobs are completed on time and to the best of standards and are competitively priced. I would have no hesitation in recommending Fountain Construction to friends and family as their attention to detail makes all the difference.


Guy Smith


Tom Fountain was recommended to us by family members and after using him once we would always go back to him if we need more building work done!
