"In November 2013 we needed a builder to renovate our daughter's house in Sheffield. We were so lucky to find Eric and his team at Whitecliffes. It was wonderful to find a builder who did the work he promised to do, when he said he would do it and at the price agreed. But that is not all. Eric is a delightful man. He offered helpful advice at every stage of the renovation. The team were very friendly and all the job was done most efficiently to a very high standard. The work had to be done within a narrow time span and it was all successfully completed. Our daughter is delighted with the result. We now know that we have a reliable and trustworthy builder to contact in the future."

"We moved house in March of this year and have had to undertake rather more renovation work than we bargained for! This has included the installation of a cellar pump to combat damp, replacement of roof insulation and extensive timber treatment.

All of this work has been carried out by Whitecliffes of Stainton near Rotherham whose name appears elsewhere on this forum. If you want a thoroughly professional, reliable and efficient team to do your job, I would strongly recommend that you contact Whitecliffes. Eric the MD and all his team were great to have about the place in testing circumstances and we were particularly impressed by the attention they paid to clearing up at the end of each day."

Jon, Sheffield Forum  2013

"I would like to recommend Whitecliffes Builders. I recently had a problem with rising damp and Whitecliffes came in and sorted the problem in two rooms. This is after the previous builder had skimmed over and ignored totally. I cannot commend Eric Cliffe and his work men highly enough and will be using to get some more work done to my roof and cellar."

Ben, Sheffield Forum  2013

"I would like to highly recommend Whitecliffes builders. Eric and his team have spent the past 4.5 months renovating a run down property for me. It required numerous improvements including damp proofing, dry root treatment, re plaster and render, roof fixing, new flooring, new kitchen and bathrooms, new windows, re wiring and new central heating.

Eric helped organise all the work and with his team turned up on 2nd January on time and with good advice throughout the project. His team are both friendly and very skilled in their work and kept to all the schedules we had agreed.

The price was both competitive and Eric stuck to his agreement. But what sets this company apart is that following the completion of the work he didn't just leave he came back and thoroughly worked through the few snagging issues a project this size undoubtedly has. The quality of their work is outstanding!

I would fully recommend Whitecliffe buildiers and would like to use them again."

Sheffield Forum  2013

"We have just had some major tanking/replastering work done through Whitecliffes and would recommend them. Professionals who got the job completed when they said and carried out to a high standard. Also helps having the owner (Eric) of the company calling in every day to oversee progress on the work."

Sheffield Forum  2013

"We can thoroughly recommend Whitecliffes. They helped renovate our 1840 home in S10 with real skill and care, installing a damp proof course, plastering and treating timbers.

Eric, who is a true professional and lovely gent, was courteous, prompt to quote and true to his word when he said we would be pleased with the service provided. Martin and team were polite, friendly and worked hard all day - and even brought their own tea & coffee (though we were pleased to provide biscuits!). They also left the house clean and tidy and were respectful that we had to live on site throughout.

It was very important to us that the house retained its character through this process and Whitecliffes took exceptional care to do just that. We were involved in every decision and any additional costs were discussed and reasonable. The outcome is a great finish and therefore a lovely home.

Whitecliffes were recommended by many friends, and I am now happy to do the same.

Thank you very much Eric and team, we will back back in touch for future projects."

Jen and Matt 2013

"Hi - just a note to say we have recently had our cellar converted from a dark dank hole into a lovely additional room by Whitecliffes - excellant job, lovely friendly people, efficient, knowledgable, punctual - job was finished on time despite some rather adverse weather - lots of snow and we live at the top of a big hill! Highly recommended if you're looking to convert your own dank hole into a nice space."

Iain Glitch  2013

"I highly recommend Whitecliffes (builders) if you're looking for a quality job at a sensible price. They're not the cheapest but not the most expensive, I felt their pricing was realistic. I've worked with a few cowboys in the past and wanted to avoid this. Eric from Whitecliffes (certainly no cowboy...) gave very logical advice which helped save me money - my job was a mix of small beer electrical work to damp proof course/tanking/building. I also trust the guarantees that Whitecliffes provided. Oh, and another bonus is his team, they're great fun to work with and some of the hardest workers I've come across. I'd definately call them in again."

Sheffield Forum  2012

"We were the people that had Hydroleak (Liam), Whitecliffes and Andy the Joiner basically re-building our house for us over the last few weeks!
Liam did an outstanding job with the two bathrooms, which he completely gutted and re-fitted; really impressed with the attention to detail, and he went over and above what was necessary to ensure that everything was spot on. Liam was also incredibly clean and tidy. Andy the joiner did a great job with the joinery on a very difficult house (lots of wonky walls). Whitecliffes were very sympathetic to the style and age of the house, and knew what they were talking about with the damp proofing of a house where you couldn't get an injection damp proof course in the walls. Everyone turned up when they said they would, professional and I would recommend to anyone - in fact will be recommending to a friend and sister-in-law who have both need work doing soon."

Kitty and Mike  2012

"I can highly recommend Whitecliffe's builders. They have recently replaced the living room floors and stairs in our terrace house, moved / added light fittings and re-plastered the walls. They did a fantastic job, and were happy to make changes where things were not quite right and even when I changed my mind. They were polite and professional, and made sure the work was completed correctly and not rushed.

The quality of the completed work was very good and the prices was reasonable."

M Burkitt  2012

"We would like to recommend Whitecliffes who have just undertaken a cellar conversion for us in S8. Everything was done in an extremely professional manner. Eric was easy to talk to, very informative and listened to what we wanted and we are extremely pleased with the final outcome. There were a number of professionals involved over the 3 weeks but father and son team, Martin and Dale were the constants and they were extremely courteous, considerate and helpful at all times. They made sure that we were happy with the work as it progressed and kept things as clean and tidy as possible. We would not hesitate to use Whitecliffes again."

Sheffield Forum  2012

"Big recommendation from us for Whitecliffes Thank you Eric and Nigel for doing a great job of building our new 'solid' porch, what a great experience we had working with you. Minimum fuss in freezing weather with no delays. These guys are the real deal - reliable, high quality and professional. Nigel even brings his own coffee supplies Superb! We'll definitely be using their services again."

Mark and Clare  2012

"I can highly recommend Whitecliffes Building Company. The man at the helm is Eric Whitecliffe. How often has anyone come across a builder who says he will start at a set date and finish at a set date and then it actually happpens! They turned up everyday on time and I was promised that I would be in my property, which required extensive renovation a week before Christmas, and low and behold I was. Yes, there were snags and with many builders it is almost impossible to get them back to address them. However, Eric has not simply gone on and become engrossed in another project, he has timetabled workers to come in to complete any small outstanding works. He has demonstrated the patience of a saint, returning all telephone calls as promptly as he can and resolving any issues swiftly and professionally. I am delighted with the work that has been undertaken; it is to a high standard. Furthermore, throughout the whole project I felt he listened and made very constructive and useful recommendations and kept my interests at the forefront at all times.

I cannot praise him and his team highly enough. You cannot go wrong with entrusting your property renovations/building work to Whitecliffes."

Surinder Jeet  2012

"Whitecliffes have recently completed a complete reroofing for me ,handling all stages of the work including obtaining planning permission and commissioning of architect . They have worked for us off and on for 20 years on 2 properties ,small jobs , big jobs and very big jobs. We have always had complete satisfaction and know and like the very experienced work-force . It gives great comfort of mind to have a builder we can trust. We have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending thentrusting your property renovations/building work to Whitecliffes."

John Kirk  2011

"I know they are already recommended a number of times on here but I would also like to highly recommend Whitecliffes. They have recently completed a lot of work for me. Works included structural works inside the house. They have also pointed the majority of the outside, its a 1900 stone fronted terrace so not really the easiest for pointing.

My dining room was still with the original black plaster and had 2 ceilings that needed replacing. They took my dining room back to the brick and built it back out, including damp proofing and tanking external walls - I've never seen such flat plastering! and certainly don't have any to compare in the rest of the house The electrics were expanded and doors were replaced along with all the other woodwork such as skirting and the bits round the doors. It is a totally different room and I am very pleased with the quality of the work done.

Eric the owner and all his staff were excellent, friendly and professional throughout the week and a half of works. They also took the time to consider dust problems for my neighbours and cleaned my windows at the end. They even watered the plants in my bathroom at the end of the first week as I had been away

They happily dealt with one small snag. I shall be saving up to use them again for further works as I couldn't be more pleased with outcome of this job. So, give them a ring on 0114 255 7522 if you want a good job doing."

Sheffield Forum 2011

"I can strongly recommend Whitecliffe's who have just installed a new kitchen, replaced 2 ceilings and part rewired the house.

The team are first class, always prompt, and treated it as if they were working on their own homes. They gave great advice when asked.They were a delight the whole time they worked here and their work is of a really high standard.

It would be well worth getting a quote for any building work as their work is very professional and their charges surprisingly reasonable.

We would definitely use this firm again."

Joe C  2011

"We were extremely satisfied with the service provided by Whitecliffe’s from start to finish. The whole project ran smoothly and the end result is a fantastic and beautiful extra room in our home."

Helen  2010

"Would strongly recommend Whitecliffes for all building work-used for renovation of house, damp proof course etc. Very proffessional, helpful and took pride in ensuring all work was carried out to a high standard."

Jaremac  2010

"Just had a whole load of work done by Whitecliffes. At last a really positive experience with a builder.”

Sheffield Forum  2010

"Excellent, very reputable company and been going for yonks. Head honcho Eric is a lovely fella too..."

Rachael  2010

“We have had Whitecliff's undertake a cellar converstion and we have been extremely pleased and satisfied with their work. Having had a bad experience with builders we were apprehensive when considering choosing a builder. I chose Whitecliffes as I felt comfortable with Eric. He introduced us to Martin and Dale who have the best can do attitude I have experienced. All in all I have to say that if anyone is looking for a basement conversion, they should consider Whitecliffes.

My faith in builders has been restored!!!!”

John Bradley  2010


"I can highly recommend Whitecliffe Builders. I am fairly new to Sheffield and found them through this forum. Eric and his team, Nigel and Owen, have just installed for me a new kitchen and downstairs WC as well as replacement wall ties and other work. This has been by far the most painless building project I have had done over the years, the standard of work is great and the guys have been a pleasure to have around. I will definitely be using this company again."

Julie, Sheffield Forum  2014

"I would like to recommend Whitecliffes Builders. They have been renovating my bungalow for the last five months and I am delighted with the result. Eric and his team are highly professional and the work is of an excellent standard. Nothing has been too much trouble and they have always shown a willingness to go the extra mile. It has been a pleasure to have them here with their friendly, helpful and good humoured attitude. I can thoroughly recommend them for any building work and will certainly ask them to do any further work that may arise in my home.

Many thanks to Eric and his team!

PS The dogs are lovely!"

Dolly C, Sheffield Forum  2013

"I recently had a new kitchen & flooring installed in my house (Hillsborough area) as part of a re-plastering/full rewire/new gch project. The contractor I used was Whitecliffes Property Renovations. Eric at Whitecliffes suggested outside plumbers, electricians & decorators to do each type of work; I was daunted at the thought of dealing with so many separate contractors, but Eric effectively project-managed everyone so it was easy for me. He even agreed to do some small follow-up jobs for me *for free* a good month after the main work was complete (I had expect to have to pay for these!). The kitchen looks great now compared to the 70's/80's one that was taken out and I can thoroughly reccommend them as contractors."

Howerd, Sheffield Forum  2013

"Would like to sing the praises of Whitecliffes Builders. They recently converted our cellar/basement into a brand new living space and removed a chimney breast in our kitchen expanding the space available to us.
Throughout the whole project, Eric the boss kept us fully informed of the progress and ensured we were happy at every step of the way. Dale and Martin, who carried out the majority of the work, were a pleasure to be around, arriving promptly every morning and always tidying up at the end of their working day.
Price was very competitive and we both couldn't be happier with the result - can't recommend them enough if anyone is thinking of having building work."

M H Jenkins  2013

"I have no hesitation in recommending Whitecliffes. Living in a narrow road, we were delighted to have a small drive-in laid at the front of our house. The brick work and York stone paving was laid to a high standard. More recently we needed work done to our roof. All work was done to our complete satisfaction. Eric Cliffe called daily to make sure we were happy with everything. A friendly and thoroughly professional service."

R Manuel  2013

"I would like to highly recommend Whitecliffes builders. Simply fantastic. They have recently completed a fabulous job for us which included converting a damp and dark basement to a beautiful main kitchen, dining room and also a play area. They also moved internal walls on other floors and chimney breasts etc, added RSJs where required, and all finished to a high standard.

We have been so impressed by their professionalism, work ethic and the rate they worked. Even the building inspector was impressed! They were onsite and working before 8am every morning and worked non stop all day with a short scheduled break for lunch. Everything was so clear from the outset. We knew exactly when they would be there and they always were. There were no trips out to get materials (something that bugs when it happens all the time) because Eric the boss came every day and brought whatever was needed or arranged delivery. Problems encountered were solved without a fuss. Communication was so clear and all promises were kept.

The price was also extremely competitive. Martin who was running the job was a super guy and all of the team worked around our dog and 2 small children and were very thoughtful to keep them safe. They also handled neighbours and the building inspector very professionally. They were so easy have around and a breath of fresh air compared to some of the builders we have used in the past. We also saw two of their jobs before we chose them and met other customers who were very happy with their work. I could not recommend them more highly."

Sam MT  2013

"I have also had work done by Whitecliffes and want to say:
What an absolutely marvellous job.
My bungalow extension of porch, kitchen, utility room and a second bathroom, look and feel like they have always been there.
Having successfully undertaken some work for me 3 years ago when I decided to have my extension built I had no hesitation in asking for a quote from Whitecliffes. As recommended by all the TV programmes I obtained more than one quote and as the price from Eric was competitive to others, having worked with Eric and some of his team before I went with Whitecliffes again.
Nigel along with is son Owen (and occasional visits from Nigel’s dad Morris) did almost all the work on my extension from digging the foundations, building the walls and roof and putting in the kitchen and laying the floor. They were professional, clean, tidy, punctual, polite and extremely knowledgeable in everything they were doing. Nigel + Eric discussed everything with me along the way advising me whenever required.
They turned up every day with a cheery good morning and overall completed the build work in the time quoted. My kitchen was ready for Christmas.
Without a doubt I will call them again when I am ready to undertake my next project.
I would definitely, definitely recommend them."

Liz T  2012

"Hi I have just bought a house in Walkley that needed some damp work and woodworm treatment. I used Whitecliffes and found them really good. Response to enquiry was quick, very prompt quote. Discussed all the work necessary and carried it out quickly and very efficiently. Great personal service from Eric Cliffe. Happy to recommend them as will certainly consider using them for future needs."

Howarch  2012

"Whitecliffe Builders have just finished some extensive refurbishment to my property. The roof was retiled and strengthened, new central heating installed, the house rewired and repairs made to external walls and to a small extended area.
The price was fair and all the work was completed to the highest standard within an acceptable period of time.
Many thanks to Eric and his team.
Very strongly recommended."

T Bird  2012

"We had our basement converted by Whitecliffe's earlier this year which has given us a fantastic new space. Eric turned up with the boys on the day and time they had stated and continued to visit most days to check that everything was ok. The boys worked diligantly through the 8 week project, were all polite and courteous and a pleasure do have around, despite our fussiness and changes of plan. Martin in particular is a highly skilled craftsman, and often thought things through overnight and came back in the morning with a solution. Our only slight grumble was that the team who started the project were moved on to another job half way through which led to some miscommunication between teams.
We were happy with Whitecliffe's work and would use them again."

Sheffield Forum  2012

"Whitecliffe's builders - this firm had just undertaken fairly major work for us - replacing damp proof course, re-plastering, treating woodworm, replacing a rotting floor joist, fitting an underfloor pump - all done quickly, efficiently and with the minimium fuss and mess.
Many many thanks to Eric, Martin, Dale and Andrew for going the extra (several) miles to make sure that all the work was completed and discussing with us every step of the way when they found a new problem.

I cannot reccommend this firm highly enough. Excellant work and very reasonable pricing."

Sheffield Forum  2012

"Another very satisfied WHITECLIFFES customer. Put in a new kitchen, took down a wall, and put in new french doors for me. Great job, started and finished exactly when they said, listened to what I was wanting and did everything they could to make sure I was happy! They went out of their way to resolve issues with the design of the kitchen which had been done poorly by another firm. They guys were great and even shared their sausage sandwiches with my dog! Will be contacting them again for some outside building work when it is warm enough for Nigel to have his shorts on again"

Sheffield Forum  2012

"We have just had the pleasure to deal with Eric and his expert team from Whitecliffes (0114 2557522) who have been working on our property in Sheffield. Eric has been extremely helpful and courteous and provided invaluable advice on the renovation of our house and offered his services at a fair price. We were fully informed throughout of all costings and timings and developments. He delivered on all aspects of the build and we are very pleased with the outcome. We would highly recommend his services. His team were professional and extremely polite. They are the "real deal" and genuinely want to do a good job!

Thank you to you all and also to Susanne who has been very helpful and we have been very impressed with her ability to organise things so well back at the office! We look forward to working with you again!"

James & Bal  2011

"We are a young couple with not much experience with builders. We had a damp problem in our cellar and needed a local builder to sort it out. We looked through the yellow pages and contacted a couple of companies who subsequently came out to our property to give us quotes. We felt comfortable with Eric from Whitecliffes straight away and felt that he had alot of experience and knowledge in the subject. He gave a very reasonable and competitive price for the job so we decided to go ahead and use them. We now wonder why we had not heard of Whitecliffes before as we are extremely happy with the service we got from them. If you want a job doing right Whitecliffes are the perfect choice. On the first day Eric introduced us to our builder Martin and Eric came every day to ensure he was at hand if we had any queries and to review the progress made. Although we expected a team of builders it was soon apparent that the job would be carried out competently and efficently with Martin in charge. He involved us throughout the process, gave us choices and informed us of what was happening. Things were not done the easy way but the way in which we wanted things. As the customers we were most important and they were happy if we were happy. The work was carried out to the highest standard and to schedule. Ofcourse you expect some mess but Martin was very clean and cleared up after himself. We would highly recommend you use Whitecliffes if you need a builder and we will use them again in the future without hesitation. Whitecliffes have helped turn our house into a home and we can not thank them enough. The only problem is they have made our cellar so nice I cant seem to get my husband out of it!"

Katie Wass  2011

"Like others on the forum we can highly recommend Whitecliffe's for building work and rennovations. Eric and his team have done about three major jobs for us over the last few years, and every time they have done a really professional job. Their work has always finished on time (and on budget), is very high quality and the team are tidy, courteous and all very nice. We'd certainly use them again."

Seymour Parks  2011

"We were really pleased that we asked Whitecliffes to do our cellar conversion and new kitchen. We simply can't imagine anyone doing it better. Martin and Eric have years of experience between them - they always talked things through with us, and we soon found they could turn their hand to all of those tricky building issues that turn up. In fact all the guys on the job were pleasant and friendly and they worked hard to get the job done. They were clean, tidy, professional and (very important) reasonably priced. They weren't at all fazed by the discovery of dry rot half way through the schedule - just got on with dealing with it'."

Brian & Catherine, Nether Green  2011

"We just had a fair bit of general building work done on our house by Whitecliffes. damp proofing, new windows, plastering, spot of joinery. I just wanted to say that everything was excellent from start to finish. Couldn't be happier. Good price, great work, super quality. And Eric, head of the firm, is the real deal."

Sheffield Forum  2010

"I am very happy about the work you have completed at my home. It was efficient, clean and carried out to a very high standard. In following your advice we have transformed our doll’s house, (small, dark, little rooms), into a large, open plan area. Thank you Eric.”

Mia, Chapeltown  2010

"If anyone needs building work then Whitecliffes are worth a look.The quotes were competitive and their work was top notch. The guys on site were the most polite and clean builders I think have ever met.”
