"As I live alone with my daughter I wanted a no maintenance garden. Lee came up with the design idea and completed it. The garden part of the job only took him one week. In total including extension it was eight weeks.
He was very trustworthy, always on time, very tidy and I’d have no hesitation recommending him. His quote was also competitive with the other builders I spoke with. I’ve since asked him back to do another smaller job."
"During a very stressful time due to the garage fire which left us with only rubble and twisted metal, Lee had no hesitation in coming straight away to our rescue and juggled his commitments so that they could clear the site and start to rebuild.
They were always prompt, pleasant, and extremely tidy. We were truly impressed with the quality of the work being carried out and the commitment to rebuild the garage to what we had before the fire (but it turned out so much better!) We have no hesitation in recommending Gillott Building Contractors.
We have even had strangers knocking on our door to ask for Lee’s telephone number as they too were impressed with the work carried out. Hopefully if we have any building work in the future Lee would be the first person we would ring."
"We had a large downstairs extension project planned. Lee came and gave us some ideas to work with.
His team of builders were very friendly, hard working, clean and tidy. Nothing was too much trouble. Our kitchen extension was completed with no problems. At every stage we were consulted and knew what was happening.
They even installed our kitchen and their attention to detail was a testament to their work ethic.
Lee and his wife Fahye also planned our garden and patio which we both love.
We cannot recommend them enough.
5 Star rating."
Mr & Mrs Kitchen
"More recently the team have completely transformed my garden to a cool dining space, that’s got a calming feel and still space for kids - not an easy task. Lee and his team have lots of ideas, are really honest if they don’t think something will work or if something isn’t really needed and just an added expense which is great!
When completing the work they are methodical, organised, friendly and just crack on with it to get the work done - always clean and tidy too.
Couldn’t be more impressed will definitely use Gillott Building on my next housing project!"
Lisa and Adam Blackburn, Ardsley
"Many thanks to Lee and the lads for creating a very usable area out of a near impossible space(patio). Work was done with all of our needs taken care of clean, tidy and most of all caring.
Excellent workmanship was shown throughout. It is the second time we have used Lee, he built us a garage at the front of our property which went seemingly without a hitch again good workmanship was shown throughout with all tradesmen, we were always left with a clean tidy area to come home to.
We would definitely recommend Lee to anybody that needs a competent builder who will do a professional job."
"We made the best choice when we gave Lee the contract to Hard – Scape our garden. We had several quotes from several different Builders who would have done the job cheaper. However with Lee you get what you pay for.
We would have no hesitation in using Gillott Builders in the future. Every aspect of the work is discussed with Lee and his wife Fahye, this was done throughout the build so there were no nasty surprises at completion. The Quotation we received before the build started was very professional and explained clearly exactly what they were going to do and also what was not included in the price. The materials they used were the best you could buy no imitations.
Lee started work in March 2019. They are Prompt, they were at the Job at 8am every morning, They are very clean and tidy, all the team are friendly and respectful. Lee and his team are perfectionists.
We have had no issues at all, following completion. The Summer house Lee built is fantastic, We have spent all Summer in there with the Grand children they love it. We have an electric heater in there for the winter and still spend time in there.
I would highly recommend Gillott Builders and I would definitely use them again."
Mr & Mrs Wike
"They worked with us to develop the specification for our elevated patio area with glass balustrade, not an easy task as mostly the works involved exact measurements, material sourcing and specialist fitting.
We got exactly what we were wanting and can now enjoy the area.
We have no hesitation in recommending Gillott Building Contractors Ltd.
With thanks to all involved"
Geraldine & Dave Wilcock - Newmillerdam, Wakefield
"I just wanted to offer our sincere thanks for the time and effort Fahye and Lee put in to support our Gala Day at Sandal Rugby Club. I know how precious their spare time is, but as usual they "got stuck in" without any fuss!!!
Despite the weather the day was a real success with around 400 people attending and we have had lots of positive comments.
We are always dependent upon others "good will" and certainly events such as this don't just reflect one organisation and can't be successful without the commitment of the many organisations and individuals who contribute their time, equipment, energy and expertise.
Throughout, you provided your services in a most professional manner and thereby made a significant contribution to our charity event. We would certainly recommend you to other organisations and events.
The Gala day was the start of national carers week and in Wakefield, highlighted the needs of and contribution of unpaid carers across the district and the UK.
Thank you once again for giving your time and expertise on Saturday and helping make the event the success it was, we had lots of positive feedback. "
Justine Bilton - Carers Wakefield & District
"I have known Lee for a number of years, he built our previous house in 1999. I had no hesitation in asking him to quote for an extension garden room on our recently purchased bungalow as we knew that the quality of his work was excellent.
The quote he provided was very competitive and once again Lee and his team's work exceeded our expectations. The workmanship was of excellent quality, built on time and within budget.
We were kept informed of what was happening with the build every step of the way. The experience of having builders in your home can lead to stressful situations but with Lee managing the project everything ran so smoothly.
We were so pleased with the work he had done we employed Lee and his team to carry out further work in the garden.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Lee and his team to anyone we know."
Mr & Mrs Caddick
"Thank you very much to Lee and the lads for the work they did replacing my roof, soffits and guttering, plus the removal of chimney breasts with full re-plastering of rooms and electrical works.
Excellent craftsmanship all round, very much appreciated the job that you all did. The workmen arrived on time and got straight on with the job and always left things in a clean and tidy condition.
Without your assistance we wouldn't have made it through the long wet winter that we've just had.
No hesitation in recommending to friends, family or anyone and will definitely be using your services again in the future."
Mr & Mrs B Sidebottom
"We have used Gillott Building Contractors Ltd. over a number of years on various projects. We have found Lee's experience and advice invaluable. Lee manages the job well, keeps it both running to time and budget, ensuring that the job runs smoothly at all times and any problems are dealt with by finding the best and most suitable solution. All in all we can recommend Gillott Building Contractors to anyone."
Mr & Mrs M Dale
"Having had many negative experiences of builders in the past, Gillott Building Contractors Ltd. was highly recommended to us in 2000 when we were looking to extend our family home. Our cottage was over 400 years old, so it was extremely important to us that the builder we used would be sympathetic to the needs of the existing building. Lee had extensive knowledge and advised every step of the way in regards to materials required, suppliers and dealt with all aspects of building compliance, whilst remaining sensitive to our "vision".
Gillott Building Contractors Ltd. were conscious at all times in regards to cleanliness, ensuring that, where ever possible, materials were cleared away at the end of each day. They took time to show attention to detail and showed complete professionalism throughout. The finished product was something that we were very proud of!!
We have used Gillott Building Contractors Ltd. for a number of projects since, such as new drains and complete renewal of the roof on our current Victorian home. We value their professionalism and have complete confidence in them. We have no hesitation in recommending them. "
Mr & Mrs Bilton

Mr P Gosney, Gosney Ltd
I have use Lee Gillott as a builder since 2002 when he built my house. Since then I have used him on a number of different projects ranging from small jobs to refurbishment projects to housebuilding and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him for his quality, price and service.

Gillott Builders installed our new driveway and patio, and they really did take care of everything from start to finish. The quality of the finish is superb, and we invited them back to complete the garden landscaping too. Once again, the attention to detail and quality of the finish is second to none. Thanks!
Mr & Mrs Snowdon
From the initial consultation we were impressed with the vision and ideas Gillott Building Contractors Ltd. could bring to the project. The subsequent meetings and actual carrying out of the work proved both the flexibility and professionalism inherent within the team. First they built two brick pillars at the entrance of the driveway and 2 Indian stone steps with smaller pillars in front of the house. They block edged the whole of the driveway and completed with tarmac to create car parking for 2 vehicles at the front of the house as well as some planting areas so it did not create a 'concrete jungle'. The entrance to our house now has a "wow" factor and it stands out from all the other houses in our street.
After the front of the house transformation Lee and his team moved to transform our overgrown and neglected back garden. They took care of all aspects of designing, paving, fencing and planting . Fahye chose all the plants suiting our taste and budget and Lee dealt with the hard landscaping and they both finished off with the re-turfing. We are truly delighted with their work and we now have a beautiful garden with a two stone circles, lush new grass and beautiful plants surrounding the garden. It is the envy of all our neighbours and friends and an excellent job completed on time, within budget and to our great satisfaction! We cannot recommend Gillott Building Contractors Ltd. highly enough!!!
