A trusted Building company in Sussex and Surrey

What people have to say about Cooke & Charman

Possibly the most competent and professional individuals I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Their work is only ever of the highest exemplary standard - always. True professionals in their field and I can recommend them and trust them without equivocation.
Very personal and professional service. An absolutely trustworthy and reliable firm to have fulfil your dream project from start to an outstanding finish.
Excellent worker. Professional attitude. Commercially good value. Completed to a very good standard and Ashley was extremely conscious working in domestic properties.
We recently used Charlie Cooke, he was amazing. So easy to work with, patient, chilled, reliable and very good ideas. Has a fab team of guys too and his attention to detail was impressive.
Cooke and Charman, turned my 1868 Old Run down cottage in Arundel, into a surreal environment. The end result really is mind blowing, not to mention the value increase of the property.
The end result is absolutely perfect and gives my gym the luxury look and feel that i have been trying to achieve for ages. The smoothie bar is already proving a massive hit with the members and looks like something from a show home- so impressed!
Thoroughly recommended - internal wall removed and new open plan kitchen installed in 2021. Professional and excellent craftsmanship at every stage of the project. Extremely happy with the work throughout and with the final look.

Ashley and his team completed various jobs at my house: installed the electrics for my hot tub, installed my outdoor lighting, and replaced all the electrics in my garage with new electrics. They are so tidy and everything is done perfectly. Amazing company to deal with.

In 2019 C&C carried out and project managed upgrading all our internal doors and the installation of a brand new staircase. Everything was handled and done in a friendly and very professional way and we are absolutely delighted with the final upgrades. I would have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending Cooke & Charman, and, if we have any future projects, we will definitely use C&C again.

Charlie and Ash provide a top quality service when it comes to house renovations. When others told us what we wanted to do was too tricky or complicated, Charlie and Ash simply said ' No worries, we'll get it done." Cooke and Charman have helped us to reinstate an annex back to our main property by refitting two stair cases and knocking through to re-join the space back to the main property.

They also fitted our utility room with units supplied from Howdens and have delivered fantastic results. All of their work was delivered on time and has really helped us to utilise space in our home which previously unusable. They are a well organised business and provide a high quality service with impeccable finish.

We have been so pleased with the work completed that we've got them coming back to help us transform another room. We couldn't rate them more highly!

Having just recently finished our single storey rear extension, I can not speak highly enough of Cooke & Charman.

From the initial meeting with Charlie, right the way through to completion, they were a joy to work with. Charlie, Ash, Les & Tim were professional, personable and their quality of workmanship was second to none. They took the stress away from us, organised all trades and ensured everything was completed in a timely manner to the highest of standards. We can safely say without hesitation we would highly recommend Cooke & Charman.

Thank you both and all your team for turning our vision into reality.

In a word, brilliant. It's always nice to work with a company who are clearly passionate about their work and in the case of Cooke & Charman, they delivered above and beyond. They were also operating in difficult times with supply issues, but they were resourceful and highly responsive. They're a great team of professionals, always friendly, always punctual, always cleared up at the end of each day and the finish is stunning. Would highly recommend. Creds to Ash, Charlie, Les, Tim, Mike.

Cooke and Charman were recommended to us by our architect and we are very happy that he did. I can't think of anyone I'd rather have to build our kitchen extension with downstairs cloak room and utility room. They were professional from start to finish, offering good advice and ideas we hadn't even thought of. They really do go the extra mile. We are delighted with our new kitchen and can't recommend Cooke and Charman highly enough. Will definitely be using them again in the future!

I have used Ashley Charman for some time from when a friend recommended him to do some electrical work for me and haven't looked back since. He has a wide ranging capability from heavy cable works to the other end of the scale sorting out IT and internet issues too. When he joined forces with Charlie it enabled them to offer so much more and a brilliant team was born. Charlie's eye for detail clearly came through when they fitted a staircase for me, with it being fitted and removed a number of times until Charlie was totally satisfied that it was completely right. I continue to use them now , in fact we have electrical work being done this week, so I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Charlie & Ashley gave us great confidence that we could achieve our spec, within budget and to a high standard. They were working in a difficult time, where supplies and manpower were often affected but still managed to provide good communication and quality service.

We were one of the first customers to install a Blossom Avenue kitchen which is superb quality and finish. The design of a bespoke seating and cupboard space has been widely praised and is truly unique.

We cannot speak highly enough of the professionalism of all the staff involved in our project.

We recently completed a full refurbishment of the downstairs of our home with Cooke and Charman. Not only did they meet our expectations set they also went above and beyond to exceed them. From the start of our design process through construction and follow-up, Cooke and Charman showed off their professionalism, expertise, customer service, and true passion for their business. It is clear that their true purpose is to ensure their client’s complete satisfaction, and each and every individual – from Charlie Cooke and Ashley Charman(Co owners) to their designers and own highly skilled contractors and office staff –have put in the time, effort, and energy to ensure that they accomplish this goal.

Cooke and Charman have excellent project management, ensuring a successful project. They very clearly outlined expectations for budget and timeline, and worked with us to adjust and fine-tune both as needed. Ultimately, our project was completed on budget and on time (give or take a few additional days for final touch ups). The weekly meetings during construction are very organised and efficient, including agendas sent in advance to ensure alignment on open topics/issues. Cooke and Charman also partners very well with any sub-contractors needed to ensure that the same level of professionalism and work ethic is provided, regardless who is completing the work. If any questions or issues arise, Cooke and Charman goes above and beyond to ensure they are addressed immediately, even coming by our house after hours to ensure that we were happy with the work and to answer any questions that we may have. Minor issues were treated with a very impressive sense of urgency.

Not only are we extremely pleased with the final result of our refurbishment, but we are also excited to have found a reputable, respectable, trustworthy company to partner with again in the future. The team at Cooke and Charman quickly becomes more than a construction partner; they become trusted friends who you know have your best interests at heart. We would recommend Cooke and Charman to any one.

Thank you so much Charlie, Ashley and all at Cooke and all Charman at Cooke and all at Cooke and Charman.
