We are so pleased and impressed with our new kitchen and a big thank-you to Chris for all his patience and understanding as we came through to our final plan. What sets Chris apart is the one to one personal service and interaction from start to finish of the project. His eye for detail, his enthusiasm and the care he takes with the smallest finishing touches is astounding. We can not recommend him highly enough and we are very happy for anybody wanting to see an example of his craftsmanship to come and see our finished product.

Seven years ago, via a fastidious engineer neighbour who had highly recommended the quality of his work, my wife and I were introduced to Chris Holgate of Holgates Ribble Valley Ltd. How pleased are we! After then commissioning Chris to rebuild our kitchen and make a number of alterations to our bathroom - the finished result was absolutely superb. Such quality! Such workmanship!

Holgates have now completed another of our projects. The complete design and installation
of yet another kitchen and bathroom - this time within a local purpose-built apartment. Completed on time, on budget, and as always - EXCEEDING our expectations. What a finish! Nothing fazes the man and he finds a solution to EVERYTHING. How I envy him his skills. Chris NEVER cuts corners and insists on the finest (German manufactured) tools with which to complete his tasks. This includes the most proficient vacuum cleaner, one's ever seen! The working area is left absolutely spotless at each day-end.

Previous reviews clearly compliment Chris for his punctuality, cleanliness and his meticulous
attention to detail. I can only reiterate those comments. This man is truly unique - nothing is too
much for him, During the past 40 years when undertaking various degrees of home renovation,
my wife and I have always attempted to seek out the best. Seven years ago - we found the VERY best. Holgates Ribble Valley Ltd.

Look no further!

It is 10 years since we first commissioned a staircase from Chris, this has been followed by many other projects, every time the work is exceptional with the closest attention to detail and the site left clean and tidy everyday. Brilliant! Thank you.

I now have my finished kitchen and it is fabulous. Holgates have provided an excellent service start to finish, from design and consultation through to workmanship and clearing up at the end of the day. Our kitchen definitely has the WOW Factor.

Chris has just started fitting my new kitchen and I am so impressed with his work and him so far. It has been a long time since we have seen such meticulous attention to detail, and can't wait to see the finished room.

We have used Holgates Ribble Valley three times now, the first was when we moved a bathroom, the second was for a new kitchen and recently for an oak staircase, with integrated baby gates. We have always found Chris Holgate to be very reliable, punctual and professional. He works with you to ensure you get the best design for your project and his attention to detail is second to none. He takes great pride in his work and always leaves the work place safe, clean and tidy. We would not hesitate to recommend Holgates Ribble Valley and will definitely be using them again in the future.

I first met Chris when he built a beautiful oak barn for me at a previous property. His helpful and insightful nature has meant that I have used him consistently since. Most recently he has installed a kitchen that we inherited - not the easiest task - considering the units were built for somewhere else! His attention to detail and his inventive and thoughtful approach means that my wife has the kitchen that she has long dreamed of. His contacts in the wider industry have meant that we have been able to adapt the kitchen to our precise needs, and the result is just fantastic - even to the extent that the original owners say that it looks better here than it did in their original kitchen! The keywords here are insight, thoughtfulness and an ability to listen to the needs of the client. Resourcefulness, attention to detail and good old fashioned hard work, tempered with an awareness of new technologies and design advances. I can't recommend Chris highly enough. One thing that particularly impresses is that Chris always cleans up before he leaves - a small point, but it really does make the whole installation process a lot easier!
