“Thanks to Vears, and Lloyd Jones in particular, I now have a splendid new Worcester Bosch gas boiler. Its predecessor, which came with the house I bought in 1983, seemed to be tottering on the border of senile decay and I had been planning its replacement for some time. In the process, I spoke to several qualified and experienced Gas Safe engineers, all of whom had different ideas and prices, but the solution which Lloyd offered was by far the most intelligent and effective.
I quickly discovered that Lloyd’s work is truly outstanding and I am convinced that he is without doubt an asset to the company. I came to admire his utter professionalism, his attention to detail and his determination to take as much time as is necessary to ensure that the outcome is always the very best it can be. Nowhere is this more apparent than in his pipework, which he has raised almost to the level of an art form.
Beyond his obvious technical ability, I was also impressed by his friendly and considerate manner, his unfailing patience and the importance he places on good communication with the customer, who is kept fully informed at every stage of the operation.” Mr A July 2019
Our church has recently needed repairs to the roof. At each request Vears came very promptly, Will their roofer assessed the problem,took photographs and explained what needed to be done,a quote was then promptly emailed.
The work was then completed in a timely way with no disruption and the leaking roof repaired.
Will was extremely helpful, he appeared to be very knowledgeable re working on an historic building,with knowledge of materials to be used on such a building and also besides his work as roofer he was very interested and enthusiastic re the history of our beautiful church building.
The service provided by Vears was excellent with follow up to ensure we were happy with the work completed. Importantly we felt that the cost for the work was also very reasonable.” Sara Hall, Church Warden
“I discovered Vears Ltd through a recommendation from a neighbour who was having extensive work done on his house. I liked what I saw, so got in touch with the office and was pleasantly surprised by their friendly approach and helpful advice.
I have subsequently used them for works on my roof and the installation of a Velux window. All was completed on time, very tidy and with very little interruption to our daily routine! I would certainly be happy to recommend them.” Jane
“We have had the benefit of Vears services for over a decade and without question they have provided us with exemplary service at excellent prices.
No mess, no fuss, just good quality work with staff who communicate with you about what you need, and who are absolutely trustworthy.
If you are looking for a builder, a decorator, a plumber, an electrician or a central heating engineer, then talk to Vears.” Nigel Chambers February 2019
“When we moved in 2015 the house we bought needed a complete renovation as virtually nothing had been done for thirty years. Vears undertook the whole project from external work such as roofing, a new front door and windows to internal building work including making a new utility room, installing a new kitchen, two new bathrooms and a new cloakroom. Their planning and organisation was excellent, the quality of the work outstanding, and the knowledge and expertise of their staff was second to none. Communication via their office couldn’t be faulted. All their staff were friendly and professional. Unforeseen problems were always discussed, resolved and corners were not cut. In short we were very pleased and satisfied and we wouldn’t hesitate to use them again” Alan & Mary Rodgman
“When I appointed Vears to rebuild my house I expected a decent job at a decent price I actually received a great job at a decent price. The team work was most impressive I was kept informed from the start and felt like part of the construction team throughout the job. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Given the scale of the work it would be reasonable to expect a few glitches along the way and these were dealt with efficiently and effectively. Well done to you and your team for making the whole process both rewarding and engaging.”
Mr S, December 2014
“Vears have just completed constructing my balcony and I am delighted with the result. The amount of care and attention to detail lavished on the project was amazing. Many different skills were required to build the balcony and at each stage the project was managed so that at the appropriate time the carpenter,plumber, electrician, brick layer ,lead worker , welder etc came to apply the necessary expertise. All the Vears staff were very helpful and polite and did their best to deal with any concerns I had as the project progressed.
I now need other work to be carried out on my property and have had no hesitation in asking Vears to do these jobs as well.”
Mrs V, December 2014
“We have used Vears for both large and small building works and have no hesitation in recommending their services. Their professionalism and attention to detail gives peace of mind that the work is being carried out to the highest standard. Mark was always helpful and made time to talk through any concerns or issues as they arose and was full of good advice. The team were skilled, hard working and made a conscious effort to bear in mind the needs of a family while works were being carried out in the home. Having seen the quality of their work first hand it is no exaggeration to say that all of our neighbours have since used their services.”

“Vears worked on our house extension for a period of 7 months from May 2012. We selected them because they came recommended by a friend who had been very pleased with their work, they were able to show the architect and ourselves that they fully understood the work involved in our complex extensions and, last but not least, Mark Vears communication skills were excellent, so we felt that we were likely to have a good relationship with our builders which is so vital. This proved to be the case. Throughout the build their courtesy to everyone (including our neighbours), their relations with suppliers, sub-contractors and ourselves were exemplary. Their planning was excellent – there were never any scheduling delays and they were always concerned to keep the site as clean and tidy as possible. Their attention to detail was greater even than our own. The architect specified many things, but not everything, on numerous plans and where there was a choice Vears would research possibilities and then discuss alternatives with us, sometimes taking us to other properties or suppliers to see examples of the alternatives. Where something was specified that was unfamiliar to them, they would again do lots of research and discuss with experts if necessary, including the architect, the structural engineer and the bat expert (the build was subject to a licence from Natural England relating to bats), to ensure that between us we made the best possible choice to achieve the optimum outcome for ourselves and for the environment and, of course, that it complied with Building Regulations. We constantly have local people and walkers stop to admire their work. The extensions blend beautifully into the existing house.”
Mr & Mrs OC – Blagdon, Bristol
“Excellent quality work from Mark and his team at Vears Ltd has allowed us to make major improvements to our house over the last 3 years. With an old house and lots to be done, it is reassuring to have a good working relationship with a reliable builder. Mark and Sandy have always proved to be friendly and efficient. Their team has proved absolutely trustworthy and has always delivered high quality craftsmanship at a competitive price. They turn up when they say they are going to and leave a minimum of mess. I don’t know what more you could ask for!”
Mr C – Pensford, Bristol
“We decided on a two storey extension to add a music room and utility room downstairs with a bedroom and bathroom upstairs. Vears helped us all of the way through – design, planning, building regs and then the build itself. Their advice was invaluable.The disruption was kept to a minimum and the work finished ahead of time. The team turned up every day and worked really hard, tidying up at the end of each day. The neighbours commented on how well the job went and how pleasant the builders were.We are really pleased with the result and are already planning the next project which we hope that Vears will do for us.”
Mrs & Mrs H – Downend Bristol
“We chose Vears to renovate our bungalow last year because their professional approach and competitive price were a winning combination. We were delighted with the work which was carried out by expert tradesmen to an impeccable standard. We felt throughout that Mark and the team were giving the project the same thought, care and attention that they would have done in their own homes. They were prepared to challenge what we thought we wanted, but ultimately listened to us and somehow found a way to achieve what we were looking for. They worked methodically, consistently and extremely hard which meant that it was completed on time, despite the inevitable hiccups involved in a big project. I could not recommend them high enough. If I ever undertake any future building projects I would even delay my plans in order to secure their services, they are outstanding and definitely worth the wait.”
Mrs K – Chew Stoke, Bristol
“In 2007 we undertook a kitchen and bathroom extension, and throughout the work Mark and the team were well organised, hard working and very willing to talk through all aspects of the work and provide additional “advice” that we had not initially expected. The work involved a huge amount of disruption indoors, but the house was left tidy at the end of each day. Mark and the team always arrived when they said they would, and ensured that work was completed and everything left tidy before end of each day. Overall the project was completed on time despite some truly awful summer weather and a few changes along the way ! Quality of work was of excellent standard and it was a pleasure having them do the work for us. We would be happy to have the team back to do further work for us.”
