IAN RICE BUILDING LIMITED is available to help with a wide range or building projects including Extensions, Conservatories, Porches and Patios. Ideally we like to estimate for work within Stroud and the 5 Valleys.

We’ve reproduced here some of the genuine comments and references we’ve received from clients. Their names and addresses have been supplied although not all are displayed.

Extensions – Stonehouse

Extensions - Stonehouse - Rosemary Jenner - Outside Shot“Ian Rice adapted existing accommodation to create a downstairs bedroom and en suite for my disabled mother and then built us a single-storey extension to add a dining area to the lounge and to enlarge the tiny kitchen to form a good-sized, practical one.

It was evident from the start that Ian was a skilled and knowledgeable builder. He kept us informed of what he was doing at each stage and why and he gave good, sound advice when decisions had to be made.

The team of specialists he brought in at appropriate stages were well chosen and also produced excellent work.

The results are absolutely stunning and have thoroughly impressed our friends, who have particularly commented on the quality of workmanship throughout.

Extensions - Stonehouse - Rosemary Jenner - Inside ShotIan is totally honest, scrupulously fair and unwilling to compromise on the quality of his work. He went out of his way to produce satisfactory solutions to problems and to avoid excessive costs. He was disadvantaged by having to work around us but remained cheerful, patient and considerate at all times. we miss seeing him every day and count ourselves lucky to have found him.

I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone needing a good builder.”

Rosemary Jenner

Conservatories – Stroud

“We use Ian Rice Building’s service for the construction of most of our conservatory bases for our own clients. Given that we have our own reputation to uphold, the diverse range of products we undertake and the quality of what we need to ultimately provide, then having a builder we can trust and obtain very high standards and accuracy from is paramount. We have such a builder and are happy to continue work with Ian Rice.”

Extension and Porch – Stonehouse, Stroud

“Ian built our two storey extension & porch, which incorporates a bedroom, landing, dining room,bathroom, utility room and adapting an existing bedroom and finally a patio.

Ian provided an excellent service, very friendly, reliable & considerate to my husbands disabilities and made adaptations such as a ramp for a mobility scooter to access the porch to provide my husband with independence. Ian was very considerate towards my husbands medical & mobility problems throughout the build.

Ian was very honest with any challenges that arose, he not only found a solution, but followed it through, we feel he went way beyound the call of duty.
Ian provided a complete team of tradesmen, so i did not need to find an electrician or plumber etc.

I would certainly recommend Ian to my friends & family, he made what could be a very stressful situation, enjoyable so we could sit back and watch our home develop.

Our two young children miss his early morning visits, Ian was very punctual, he came at the same time every day and my children would wait for him to arrive with his cheerful disposition.

Thank you so much Ian, for not only doing your job, but being the genuine person you are, we are so grateful.”

Garden Wall and Patio – Cainscross, Stroud

“Mr Rice built a new garden wall and patio. The quality and service was excellent. We have also had some plastering work done, which again was excellent.”

Paul Brown

Building Work – Edge, Nr Stroud

“Ian Rice proved to be an excellent craftsman who paid attention to build, quality and price. With a knowledgeable and helpful attitude, he maintained a great working relationship throughout the build. His working practices, skills base and competence were all excellent and contributed to a successful project.”

Kel Portman

Patio and Conservatory – Stroud

“Ian Rice has recently built the base for my Conservatory; with small patio and raised bed on one side. The work entailed was difficult, with the site on a slope and need for level access from lounge to Conservatory. All the work carried out over several weeks was accurate and his reliable service much appreciated.

My nearest neighbours watched the progress, from foundations to completion, with interest and were impressed, as I am, with the high standard of his workmanship.

I am well-pleased with my finished Conservatory”
