What our Customers say… 

There is so much that we can say but it is nothing compared to what our customers say after having worked first hand with us.

 At last found the time to write my detailed review of Palmer Developments and their excellent service. After planning the big changes to our home I was left with the daunting task of finding the best possible Company to carry out my work at a reasonable price. After weeks of visits from numerous Companies I was still undecided and must admit became a little anxious because each of them left me feeling mostly underwhelmed with both their enthusiasm and professionalism. That is until my first contact with Caleb who represented Palmer Developments during an initial phone call. He was clear, knowledgeable and most of all enthusiastic towards our project. A visit promptly followed where I met Wayne who arrived at my house in a clean smart sign written van. Great first impressions! He came fully prepared with all the kit to create an accurate professional quote. What was pleasing also was that we had some constructive ideas between ourselves which is something that definitely didn’t happen with any prior companies which made me totally at ease with the whole way in which these people do business. During the next few weeks the regular communication through Caleb was excellent and resulted in them issuing me a quote which came in at the exact amount I was wanting to pay for my plans. This was not the least or indeed not the most that I had been quoted so far however the confidence of this going well was on a daily basis getting better. Without hesitation I gave the go-ahead to proceed with the preparations to making a start date. Correspondence once again amazing and the date they said they would commence work was indeed the day they started. From the very start the people who Wayne had working with him were friendly, courteous and polite. They willingly took provisions to make sure the site was clean and safe at all times and also gave me overall feeling of enthusiasm for the job, that overwrites all the stereotypical stories that you look at when carrying out such an major change to your home. The two storey side extension to my house is now in the final stages of completion and without a shadow of a doubt thank lady luck for finding this company on the internet. I must commend every single member of the team for their hard work and total professionalism Wayne was reassuringly visiting on a daily basis giving updates and having a chat with us all which was brilliant, even when I had a tweak or two nothing was too much trouble. Hats off to this brilliant team of tradesmen especially Wayne, Caleb, Gary and Andy.This was in my mind going to be a very stressful ambitious project. However my experience throughout has been very little stress and the end result a very impressive addition to my existing home. I would not hesitate at all in having Palmer developments carry out any other work in the Future! THANKS GUYS! Rob, Jen and Owen.


We recently had our kitchen and living room knocked through to make one larger kitchen diner space. After obtaining quotes through various companies, Palmer provided us with a fantastic quote and the work provided is of an extremely high standard. The lads turned up on time every day and worked late to complete the project on time. We had a few hiccups along the way which Wayne and the team sorted hassle free. Also, one of the best assets this company has is Caleb who works within the office as he is always on hand to answer questions or queries whereas you will likely struggle to get hold of builders normally on the phone as they are busy completing work. Highly recommended.


We employed Palmer Developments to complete the work on our extension and would not hesitate to recommend the firm and all the staff most highly. Wayne’s personal integrity and trustworthiness are reflected by the whole team. Work is carried out to a high standard and we had Gary and Andy, two of Wayne’s team, with us for a long period, working on our house. They were reliable, courteous, efficient and trustworthy. Caleb, the office manager maintained close contact with us throughout the build process and managed many and varied details and difficulties with calmness, expertise and helpfulness. He responded quickly to emails and calls and was always so personable and friendly. Our experience of workmen has not been universally great. There are many who over promise and under deliver; however we can say wholeheartedly that Palmer Developments are the opposite and always do their best to fulfill commitments in a timely fashion. We did experience a variety of issues on our build as it was complex and difficult but Wayne and Caleb always worked hard to resolve issues quickly. We have already recommended Wayne and his team to people we know. Thank you Wayne and Caleb – We are delighted with our new extension.


 We had a wall rebuilt, with a 3 way agreement, Palmer developments where professional with the other 2 parties, one being Oldershaw Acadamy, all 3 parties are very happy. I can strongly recommend Palmer developments. His guys where quick, clean and the company was very efficient. The job was well planned and the materials turned up on time with the lads also being on time. All the area effected by the works was left in the same state as before with all the plants and shrubs re planted etc.


 We recently had a porch built by Palmer Developments. The work was carried out to a high standard by Wayne’s friendly team. We were also kept regularly informed of visits and they proved flexible to alterations we made to the job.


This is the third major works that Wayne has done for me over the years and my second review. From full loft conversion to rear extension to full basement conversion. All the jobs have progressed without any major issues and any minor ones are quickky put to bed. There maybe cheaper builders out there but i dont think there are many much better.


Palmer Developments have recently completed a full renovation and two storey extension to my home. I am delighted with the result and attention to detail. Everyone comments on how the extension joins seamlessly to the house and looks as if it has always been there. Wayne has maintained the original character whilst bringing the building up to date. I have been pleased to recommend Palmer Developments to friends about to make improvements to their homes. Thank you Wayne for giving me my ‘wish list’ and thanks to Caleb in the office for unfailing politeness and quick responses to queries.


The build involved the construction of a side extension in order to create a new Kitchen/Dining area plus modifications to the existing property including new render, windows, roof and internal door openings. Wayne and team exemplify the best in construction by seeking to work with you in order to deliver a finished product that is to an exceptional level of quality, on time and to the agreed budget. Wayne, Caleb and Rachel provided 100% support and guidance throughout our build and were always on hand to provide advice and re-assurance, which is something rare into days challenging, cost cutting world. We would recommend Palmer Developments to anyone seeking to undertake any building project.


We are thoroughly delighted with our kitchen refurbishment carried out by Palmer Developments. Work involved knocking through an outside wall into an existing extension, plastering, plumbing, electrical work and fitting new appliances and units.
All this done in just over 2 weeks! We found Wayne to be very professional and his team on site were hard working, obliging and friendly. Caleb in the office was also very helpful. We have already recommended Palmers to others.


We used Wayne and Palmer Developments for work to complete a single storey rear extension and creation of a large family room. From start to finish we were ntohing but impressed with his professionalism, attitude and workmanship. We are delighted with the results and would have no hesitation in recommending Palmer Developments to potential future clients. A great company offering great service!


I contacted Palmers for a quote on a garage conversion having seen them working locally (after asking the owners if they were pleased with the job). Being let down by previous builders Palmers were a real contrast, great from the first! Prompt, efficient and doing exactly what they said they would, on time. Wayne Palmer came to view the job himself and was helpful, pleasant to discuss plans /budgets with and provided my written quote quickly. Caleb in their office is a real asset as are the tradesmen who worked in my house. They arrived everyday at the correct time and worked solidly all day. There was an unexpected problem which arose, which was dealt with swiftly. I was always kept up to date with every aspect from the start of the job to sign off. They also arranged the building regulations and worked to my own plan. I would recommend the company from my experience.


 We had an extension and internal renovations done to our bungalow by Wayne and his men. Everything was done to a very high standard and the guys were pleasant and helpful. Our architect commented that no shortcuts had been made and we are very pleased with the final result.


We had major work needed for a large mortgage retention… Palmer Developments had all work completed on time. No complications, works were all done to a high standard and all quoted prices were not exceeded. We would highly recommend and will definitely use again.


A local charity commissioned Wayne and his team to create an internal opening, with fire door, between two offices. The work was entirely completed in one day and was a very good experience. The team were on site by 0740 and they didn’t waste any time at all in getting started. The job was completed to a very high standard, and the team were professional, tidy, polite, and very helpful. They left everything clean and tidy and explained everything they had done.
We will certainly be using Palmer Developments again in the future – we are very satisfied customers.


We had extension work done which included 2 ensuites to two bedrooms upstairs one of which had a dressing room as well. Wayne and his team have done an exceptional job. It looks fabulous and they were working to a tight deadline as we wanted the work completed before our family visited us. The entire job was completed in 6 weeks and we have heard people say that it could have taken double that time. Even the neighbours commented that they were ‘good lads’. And they have done an exceptional job. The lads were very helpful with little things and willing to go the extra mile. 



We have used Palmer Developments in a project to remove a load bearing wall between our kitchen and breakfast area and make a new large kitchen. Since the start, we have dealt directly with Wayne Palmer, the company director, and we remained in constant contact with him through the project. We found him friendly and accommodating, and his staff friendly and easy to talk to. The project went smoothly and Wayne has done his best to sort out any problems. He stuck to the cost estimate we were given at the start. Overall, it has been a good experience and I would not hesitate to get the company’s help again in the future.


We had a 2 storey extension done and would highly recommend Wayne and his team at Palmer Developments. Work was carried out according to plans and on schedule. The workmen are friendly, professional and very trustworthy


We had our attic conversion carried out by palmer dev. The whole team have been really great to work with from the initial design to carrying out the work. All are extremely professional and very friendly. The work was carried out with minimum mess and fuss. Everyone who sees the work is impressed. You get what you pay for. We highly recommend PD

C.WRIGHT - Chester & Heswall

A team of extremely professional and polite builders. They kept the mess to a minimum and completed the work on time.


Friendly, flexible and Fair (pricing), along with pragmatic advice made Palmer Developments a good choice for building contractor. Recommendations really boil down to one question. Would you use them again? Yes, would be my answer.


Palmer Developments did a great job to restore our 150 year old cottage in Heswall. Despite many surprises no the way and problems encountered in trying to restore the cottage , Palmer Developments worked tirelessly and more importantly cost effectively to find workable solutions. Wayne never tired of finding ways to accommodate our change in requirements. The result is magnificent with the bathroom modernisation being one of the major achievements . We look forward to using Palmer Developments again in the future and recommend them for the most difficult job you have to throw at them .. you will not be disappointed.


Extremely pleased with work done by Palmer Developments on retiling my roof and refitting my kitchen plus removing two fires and plastering a wall. I am currently waiting for a quote to have my bathroom refitted too. Each job done was to a high standard by professional and friendly people. Not only was I impressed with the cost and the standard of work it was really appreciated that they tidied up as much as possible at the end of each day.


A truly amazing team, professional and friendly. After being let down by 5 other builders, Wayne and his team came to our rescue and with a great price too. I can highly recommend Palmer Developments for any large building projects. I know I will be using them again for sure. Don’t try the rest.. Just try the best! Cheers again guys.

Palmer Developments have done several large jobs for us since 2008. I now have a trust in them I do not have with any other building firm. The last job was internal insulation of a flat and fitting a new bathroom there. I was out of the country for most of the job, and had full confidence that Wayne would be able to work with that. We had hiccups due to lack of communication and me not being around to notice if something was not being done to my ideas, and correcting it immediately, but I can learn from this for future projects. The work did go significantly over timescale, which I worry was because I was not present, but the work when finished was excellent and we are already planning the next project with Palmer Developments.


Wayne and his team are extremely professional, polite and a pleasure to have worked with. They recently installed a baptistery into our church, and considering all the logistics this all went smoothly. I’m sure it wasn’t necessarily for them but they showed a real professionalism at all times. Would highly recommend!
I hope to use them again in the future both personally and professionally.


The job entailed the removal of a large area of flat roofing and the replacement of it with pitched roofs. From the moment we met Wayne we found him very trustworthy and were confident that our job would be undertaken to the highest standards. We were not disappointed. The job was completed by an exemplary team, exactly to our specification and plans, was completed on time, and on budget. Everything was done in a very professional manner, from the initial quotation, the timetabling of the work, the protection of the house during some very inclement weather after the old roof had been removed, the quality of the workmanship of the various trades on-site, the dealings with the local council building control, and the office support including interim and final accounts. All in all a first class job of which we are very pleased. Without any hesitation we would highly recommend Palmer Developments.


We had some internal reconfiguration work done to our home which including the removal of a number of supporting walls.Excellent service and we are delighted with the work. Efficient, great quality and stayed within the budget. Would recommend without hesitation.


Have now got a fabulous new bathroom thanks to Palmer Developments. They completed gutted the old one, insulated it all, new door, window and radiator and new bathroom suite. Very reasonable cost- no unexpected bills at the end and only paid when all the work was completed. Wayne was very helpful with suggestions for our small bathroom. The team were lovely, cleaned up very well after themselves and a big plus – didn’t patronise me or suggest I discuss things with my husband first, which other companies did! Confidently left in the house whilst we were at work from the first day. Would definitely recommend them and have already asked for a quote for further work to be done.


Having obtained several quotes for our kitchen extension, Palmer Developments provided a fair costing and stayed within budget throughout the project. The quality of the work completed by Wayne Palmer’s team was of a very high standard, carried out by polite and friendly tradesmen. We would certainly recommend Palmer Developments.


Palmer Developments recently completed work for us to re-render and stabilise a wall and investigate and fill a hole which had appeared in our back yard.
The work was carried out in an efficient, professional and courteous manner by the staff and the quality of work produced was excellent and fit for purpose.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this firm for such work in the future.


Palmer Developments have removed part of an internal structural wall to improve our kitchen / diner. The initial consultation was clear and straightforward. Wayne and his team were highly professional and courteous. The team was assiduous in ensuring we were happy with all aspects of the job at the completion. We are very pleased with the result and would use them again.


Our driveway has just been re-laid by Palmer Developments. We are delighted with the finished result and would definitely use Wayne and his Company again. The guys were polite and considerate, no blaring radios, and started work punctually just after 8am finishing at 5pm. We definitely recommend Palmer Developments for a job well done.

Palmer Developments carried out structural works on our kitchen to make it into a large open plan living space. The work was carried out to an excellent standard, within the time agreed and every person that worked on the job couldn’t have done more. Our expectations were completely exceeded. To anyone looking for an honest, reliable and trustworthy builder, look no further. We would highly recommend Palmer Developments and will use them again.
Recently had a some alterations done and a new kitchen fitted by Wayne and his team. The work was carried out in a thoroughly professional and friendly manner, the team were punctual, helpful and Wayne checked in daily and any ‘problems’ were dealt with efficiently. The level of workmanship was nothing short of excellent with attention to detail, even cleaning up after themselves at the end of each day. We would have no hestitation in recommending Palmer developments and indeed a relative has been so impressed he hopes to employ them them for an extension to his property
Replacement of garage roof and various electrical work was carried out in a very efficient and professional manner to a high standard. Jobs were started on time as promised and finished on time. Roofers made sure when weather took a turn for the worse that the garage was made watertight even though it meant foregoing their lunch. Additional electrical work was carried out without as requested at short notice was carried out without fuss.
The conversion of our garage into a high quality music room was carried out to a high standard meeting all our requirements. The tradesman were friendly and considerate.

I decided to use Palmer developments for a single story extension on my property earlier this year. Following the addition of our first son, we needed some extra space so I contacted a few companies for some quotes.

I spoke to Wayne, the managing director, who agreed to come out and discuss my plans. Not only was Wayne able to offer a service to meet all my requirements, he also gave some excellent ideas about a few other improvements to my property which helped to solve a few problems along the way. Palmer developments were miles ahead of the other quotes I received and I decided to book the project in.

The whole job went smoothly and actually finished around 3 weeks ahead of plan and there was very little disruption to our family home whilst work was being carried out. Wayne was on site every morning to ensure the job was running on time and to plan – He even hired a portable toilet for his staff to use!

Wayne was only ever a phone call away to discuss any queries and he would make regular contact with me to make sure I was happy with the work. Wayne is a perfectionist and he made sure the site was ALWAYS clean and tidy.

I would highly recommend Palmer Developments to anybody requiring any sort of building work. A professional team of highly skilled workmen will make light work of any job, no matter of size.


Palmer Developments has just finished replacing 18 windows in our house. They had to be made to unusual specifications to suit the character of our period cottage, and the work had to be delivered over a time period that best suited our busy lifestyles. The work was completed on time, done to a very high standard and for a very competitive price. We particularly liked the commitments of Wayne and his team and their attention to detail, and willingness to be flexible when plans had to change.

We actually did not allow Wayne to leave the house until he had agreed to change the paving stones in our swimming pool which in was done with great care and efficiency. We are very pleased with the result.

We have no hesitation recommending Palmer Developments to anyone looking for a highly competent and reliable provider for a house refurbishment project.


Having been let down by other builders, Palmer were like a breath of fresh air, work started on the agreed date and was completed without any fuss and for the agreed amount.
There may be cheaper builders out there, but not as reliable and competent as Wayne and his team.


As a sub contractor to Palmer Developments, we are more than happy to write this review.
We have carried out a number of electrical works on Palmer Developments projects, the attention to detail and timing is fantastic to see and so we are happy to recommend their services to anyone. Pride is taken in their work and also the customers are always informed with what is happening. Always a pleasure to provide a service to.


I am very happy with the recent maintenance work carried out on my premises by Mr Palmer of Palmer Developments.

A large area of flagging maintenance was carried out to a very high standard. I also asked Mr Palmer to check the condition of the roof whilst on the premises and a job of which I was unaware, but which was totally visible to me when pointed out, was also repaired. Mr Palmer assured me that when roof jobs were not visible to the property owner he would always photograph the job first and discuss the required work.

Mr Palmer arrived on time whenever he said he was coming; he explained each job in detail and he also had every consideration for my neighboUrs whilst here i.e. In parking his vehicle etc. On the basis of his workmanship and professionalism I would have no hesitation in asking for a quote for any further work or larger jobs required in the future.

As his business card states…. “construction with integrity”.


Palmer Developments delivered a first class job at a very reasonable price!!
We had a room completely re-plastered ready to be re-decorated: a very high quality work was carried out during the agreed timescale.
Very professional and honest: we will definitely use this company again for future work and will definitely recommend.


Palmer developments converted our loft in a very professional manner. We ended up with a large bedroom, full ensuite bathroom, walk in wardrobe and still had a good sized loft storage room – so well done to Darren the architect for making maximum use of the space. All the workers were polite and took into consideration that we had a 6 month old son and dog. They cleaned up after themselves each night.


A first class job at a very reasonable price.
Work carried out on stated day and completed with minimum fuss.
Very professional, would not hesitate in recommending and would definitely use again for future work.
