What our customers say

“After completing the build, our family and friends favourite comments were, ‘‘So… who all did you fall out with?’’ and ‘‘It must have been such a difficult, stressful time!’’ I had to inform them that nothing could have been further from the truth… for the duration of the 18 month build, from the architect’s drawings through to completion, everything flowed, in a calm, orderly and professional manner. We ended up with a property that has exceeded many of our initial expectations: the quality and craftsmanship of the finishing is superb, and the attention to detail and willingness to confer and strive for the best result was so refreshing to witness. There was an obvious ethos of care and dedication at the heart of the company that transferred itself to us, the clients, such that when we parted at the end of the project, we did so with respect and friendship.

I could not recommend the company highly enough.”

Rory Macdonald

“Richard M MacKenzie Ltd was referred to us by a friend as being the best builder in the area and, having used them firstly to renovate and improve our Edwardian house in Dornoch and then to create adjoining high quality boutique B&B accommodation, we are happy to agree that this is indeed the case!

Richard MacKenzie himself was always a pleasure to deal with, being helpful and innovative. We were also very happy with all the tradesmen that worked on our projects, whether Richard M MacKenzie’s own employees or sub-contracted professionals recommended by them. As all the tradesmen were used to working together as a team, both our projects were well-managed and completed in line with our expected timescales.”

We undertook a new build, for the first time and – living in London – from long distance, and so it was vital to work with a building firm who we could trust.  Richard Mackenzie were excellent throughout the process, and we were delighted with the result.  They quality of their workmanship was superb, and the team were extremely helpful in delivering the design which we were looking for.

Richard M Mackenzie was recommended to us by friends whose house was built by Richard.
We had bought a plot of land in a spectacular location overlooking Loch Fleet and were keen to have our house built with traditional external features but with a modern open plan interior and some quirky features. This is where Richard’s experience shone through.
Living in Cheshire at the time meant that our site visits were relatively few, however every Friday Richard would phone with a progress report on that weeks work. When we were on site his team was polite, helpful and showed a high degree of expertise in their workmanship.
Our new home was completed on time and has received many plaudits.
We would recommend Richard M Mackenzie as a highly competent firm of joiners and building contractors and we look forward to working with him in the future.
