"Ruston Construction is the best imaginable team for building and all aspects of improvements to properties.
After a long life of dealing with builders, plumbers and electricians with very mixed results, I can highly recommend the team. Ruston is in and out in the shortest possible time, delivering attention to detail and sustained care going forward. The team is congenial and brilliantly managed. I could not be happier with the results I have had from paving and drain work, highly skilled roofing, period brickwork, difficult plimbing issues resolved, expert electrics and the overseeing of sub-contracted glass roofing to my particular specifications. Several quite difficult problems were solved because of John Ruston's experience and skill".
Mark Alexander Wraith, Southbank, London.
"Always prompt and cheerful, the builders in the Ruston team are in my experience, trustworthy and competent and give sensible advice.
John himself is able and willing to help with advice and suggestions in the design process. He and his team care about all aspects of the build. They are mindful of the community and work in a respectful and orderly manner.
John is available to deal with any issues 24/7.
After completion, any follow-up is provided as necessary"

"My wife and I have found Ruston Construction's work to be of a very high standard and his workforce are always willing to be of assistance. The team renovated our house including our bathroom, kitchen and bedrooms and converted a rundown outbuilding into an office.
All jobs were carried out to a high standard and we would recommend Ruston Construction to anyone looking for a good construction company."
Ivor Mazure, Waterloo, London.
"We have used Ruston Construction over the past 6 years on our grade 2 listed Lonon town house. john is highly experienced and very knowledgeable and has been very good at solving the problems we give him.
We have used him for structural work, a new roof, new floorboards, new bathroom, complete redecoration, electrical, shelving, balustrades, garden paving and he even built us a garden table to our own design!
He and his team are professional, trustworthy and personable and carry out their work to a high standard. He is always at the end of a phone if we need him. I would not hesitate to use him again or to recommend him to others."
Sharon Blake, Southbank, London.
Ruston Construction converted our small office building into a beautiful, modern home. Building an extra storey, putting in a staircase, a picture window and skylight, Ruston created a light airy living space at the top of our mews building. This was no easy job, working in a narrow road with restricted access for vehicles and with neighbouring buildings abutting on three sides, there was plenty of negotiation with neighbours involved. John Ruston's cheerful pragmatism saw it through with the minimum of fuss.
Ruston's experiences team installed a new kitchen, two bathrooms, an energy-efficient boiler and central heating system. The entire building was rewired and Ruston oversaw the installation of solar panels to the new flat roof. Whatever we asked of Ruston Construction, it was met with a knowledgeable and considered response. This was our first time working with the company but we soon learned that we could trust the team to keep us informed and flag up potential problems before they arose.
When the job was finished there was very little 'snagging' to be done. As soon as we identified an issue, the team were back to fix it. It is an impressive after-care service which ensures that I have no hesitation in recommending Ruston Construction.
Melissa Mackey, Hatton Garden, London
When you have building work carried out sometimes you take a step into the unknown but our concerns were quickly put to rest. John and his team are on the ball, they keep you informed, take care of everything and delivered to a high standard and on time. We're extremely grateful to them and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ruston Construction.
George and Lucy Cooper, Islington
We have used Ruston Construction since 2009 for various construction and maintenance jobs on our property. These have included digging out our basement and thereby providing us with two additional rooms, installing a shower room, re-wiring the whole house, re-laying paving stones and fitting lighting in our courtyard garden, down to smaller jobs such as repairing leaks in a glass roof, replacing missing roof tiles and dealing with emergencies.
We have been very pleased, not only with the outcomes but also with the friendly and accommodating team and after-sales service.
