Wade Builders in Heald Green, Cheadle
My mother moved into our house when my father died, so we needed to make use of the space in our house the job was to convert our basement into a kitchen ( this room was previously the kitchen in victorian times) and to revamp the bathroom. My pensioner mum paid for most of the work and was in charge of the job as my husband and I were working.
We went to Wades hoping it would be honestly carried out and to a professional standard, unfortunately this was not the case, also we were told it would only take around a month or two. The work started in February, maybe early March, they didn't finish till August!
During this time we were without hot water for 3 weeks. Supporting posts for the house were fitted on a skew and we have one room that continually leaks in the basement as they put in a window and now the room floods every time it rains.
This job was quoted at around £30,000+, it worked out alot more, but that was because we chose quality fittings. This work was in 2005 or six, we have never been happy with the work they did, and our heating boiler, which they chose and fitted, has broken every year in the winter. The february after they fitted the boiler my mother passed on suddenly, at the same time my boiler still wasn't working, I phoned to explain to Mr wade that I would like this to be mended before my mum's funeral as this is something she had been trying to get rectified and I needed closure. Mr Wade said he'd send someone along, no one turned up.
The reason I am writing this so late on, is our boiler finally broke and I got an expert in, to see if it needed to be replaced or mended and the guy took one look at out boiler and said they had fitted too small a boiler for our size house and that was why it had broken every time we had heating and water on. These builders fitted my bathroom so badly that the bedroom below is constantly wet as the shower leaks. We have endless problems since they did the work and are now in the process of trying to correct their mistakes. This is terribly frustrating as we thought they were a trustworthy company, unfortunately they weren't.
