Need a Great Builder in Romford?


Over the past 5 years Hot Trowels have been working tirelessly to establish a formidable reputation in Essex and East London as one of the finest brickwork and landscape specialists the area has to offer. Based in Romford, we were originally a commercial focused contractor. We successfully served many of the industry’s leading construction companies on various ventures, from new build homes to large commercial redevelopment projects. However as a business our focus shifted to the domestic building market after our owner, talented building contractor and consultant Matthew Dibden, noticed a serious gulf in the quality and service being provided by many of his now competitors.

His vision was to bring the service, standards, accountability, value and after-care of the commercial market straight to people’s homes. The move clearly paid off and the Hot Trowels team have ‘Trowel-blazed’ a long line of extremely happy and loyal customers. Over 90% of our new customers come from the word of mouth of previous clients and we are extremely proud that our reputation alone continues to generate the majority of our new business. This is why we are considered the best Romford Builder. We also have a number of commercial clients that always return to us when they need brickwork or landscaping solutions for their large construction projects.

Romford’s Landscaping Specialists


We are now pleased to present our new website where you can browse through a selection of our work and details of the services we offer. We offer basic walls to house extensions, driveways and paving to a full landscaping and fencing service. We have also built up relationships with other excellent tradesmen and we are able to project manage larger developments. This enables us to bring in external specialists who offer experience and quality to ensure all aspects of your development will have that high-end finish we are proud to put our name to.

We know that hiring someone to complete home improvements and building work can seem like a daunting process. That’s why we try to be as open and transparent as possible at every stage of the work we undertake. Communication failures are often the reason why so many building and landscaping projects don’t meet customers and clients expectations. By being friendly, professional and most of all approachable, we find that we always meet and often surpass the expectations our clients and customers.

Unfortunately some people in our industry think that because they get their hands dirty it means they can often forget their manners and professionalism. We on the other hand will go out of our way to minimise disruption to your home while work is under way, treating you, your property and home environment with the respect it deserves. After all the work is completed we make sure we clean up and remove all left over material. We then complete a full inspection and ask you to complete a walk around with us, ensuring you are completely happy with the work we’ve undertaken before we sign off the project with you.
