Tom Leech is both a gentleman and an exceptional professional. Tom was available to us anytime we needed or wanted to talk to him. He was on site most of the time and when not was always contactable. He was patient, helpful and understanding and always listened to what we had to say and answered our questions. He gave us his advice from his years of experience and made a number of practical suggestions which improved our house.
From the very outset, the standards Tom set were exemplary. The site was always spotless, and on evenings when we would visit to look at the progress there was never anything left lying around, offcuts and waste etc. were always cleaned up at the end of every day and neatly tidied away.
The project itself went seamlessly. Everything happened on time or, as was more often the case, ahead of schedule. If you had to criticise Tom, then it would be that Tom moved so fast at times that he was ready to move on to the next thing almost before we had had a chance to decide on the next thing. But this is a positive criticism! If there were any delays anywhere in the project these were our doing because we were never waiting on Tom but he sometimes had to wait for us to catch up. This kept us on our toes, ensuring we were prepared and did the work we needed to do on time, such as picking tiles, floors etc. We can’t emphasise enough how important this was and how much this contributed to the project going so smoothly.
Most importantly, Tom’s workmanship was exceptional. It speaks for itself and you just have to see it and walk around it to understand what we mean. We are not builders but when other tradesmen working on the finishes (such as our kitchen supplier, our tiler etc.), came to the house they all immediately commented on the excellent quality of the work, the clean and tidy finishes on everything and the immaculate way the house was left by Tom. We have told on numerous occasions by such tradesmen, and others, that the house we have got is of the highest quality there is; one very experienced tradesman said that we couldn’t have gotten better anywhere.
What comes across most is the pride that Tom takes in his work, down to every small detail. I don’t think there is a better compliment or marker of someone’s work than that. They say you have to build 3 houses before you get it right. Well if we ever get to do that, we will be getting Tom Leech to build them. We could not speak of, or recommend, Tom Leech more highly.

Leech Brothers Ltd. were employed by Longwood Parish to refurbish and reconfigure Killyon Church. This local building firm came with an excellent name for good quality
building in the midlands. I was delighted that the company won the tendering process and in Tom Leech I had a builder of integrity who kept to his word and managed impeccably a good strong team of workers.
The company sought at all times to deliver on the specified drawings and to keep to the quality and time frame specified. It was no surprise a year after the church reopened in 2018 it won an award for the quality of work carried out by those employed by the parish.
I have no hesitation in recommending Leech Brothers as a builder to anyone thinking of getting quality building work done.

Leech Brothers were a pleasure to deal with throughout our build. We had regular meetings throughout and they always gave us plenty of notice when decisions were requiredfrom us. The quality of the build and the standard of finish on was excellent. The project was delivered on time and on budget. We couldn't recommend them highly enough.
I have engaged Leech Brothers Builders Ltd on several projects, predominantly relating to works on distressed residential assets on behalf financial institutions/receivers. I have found them reliable, approachable, professional and conscientious. They consistently provide quality work and I would have no issue in recommending LBBL to other consultants/clients
Tom Leech built a house for me in 2018/19. He was recommended to me by a friend who is an engineer/partner in a prominent Midlands based Engineering Consultancy Firm.
From the get go Tom and his crew were super-efficient. They are highly organised and most importantly take great pride in their work. I demand high standards from all contractors that work for us here at Gaybrook Lodge. At every stage Tom exceeded our expectations. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough. Life would be very simple if there were more like him around. Please feel free to contact me for any further information. Jim McCartan.

Tom built our house in 2017. We were very happy with how the build went. Tom was very helpful and practical with advice and suggestions when we sought his expert opinion. Like a well-oiled machine, Tom and his team take pride in their work, they are efficient and professional. The site was always kept in a safe and tidy manner. We would have no hesitation in recommending Leech Brothers Builders and have done so to others who have been just as please as we were.

We were recommended Tom as a builder by a number of people. From the moment we met Tom and his QS we were delighted with our decision. We began building in February 2018 and moved in the last week of October 2018. Tom is very experienced and has a wealthof knowledge, but always discussed decisions with us and made sure we were happy. He always kept within our budget and was always planning ahead and keeping the ball rolling. Tom's team are also very helpful, reliable and hard working. The aftercare was also brilliant. I have to say we had no problems with anything from start to finish. He made the process very easy and stress free.
