Client Testimonials

The 1970s house I bought needed much work. I had to wait 3 months for Sam and team to be free, but good builders are never free and it was definitely worth the wait. He promised to start in mid-January and so he did. Over the next 4 months the house was transformed: new ceilings, plastered walls, new heating, re-wired, new kitchen, glass panelled stairs, new French windows, great front door, wooden flooring …. A fantastic job. Thank you, Sam.


Sam keogh was recommended to us in respect of our planned internal alterations to enlarge and refit our kitchen, by incorporating an adjoining study and part of the utility room. As soon as we met him, we were pretty sure he was the man for the job and he provided us with a competitive estimate for the project.

Having agreed to engage him, we had to wait some time for his workforce to become available but the works were commenced pretty well on schedule and were completed in the agreed timescale and for the estimated price. His workforce, both direct employees and chosen subcontractors were polite, hardworking and diligent and each stage of the works progressed to allow the installation of the Wren kitchen units and the Everhot range on programme.

We have since used Sam twice more on smaller internal projects (which required close coordination) and have no hesitation in recommending him.

Jane & Nigel Harrison

Went out to tender for a project to extend my house by adding two bedrooms with EnSuite and an inner Lobby. Also a new kitchen and Oak flooring throughout the house. I chose Sam Keogh Building Services. I am delighted to say that I made the right choice as the detailed estimate was followed to the letter and there were never any surprises when it came to settle accounts. The work standard is 1st Class and Sams personal involvement with the project allowed me to relax and enjoy watching my home be transformed. The house was handed back on time and Sam even helped me to move my furniture back in!

Sam carried out the conversion of an outbuilding at our property to an annexe between October 2017 and March 2018. From our first meeting, we had the feeling that he was efficient and organized and this proved to be the case throughout the work. His team of Lee, Liam and Ryan were hardworking, friendly and helpful, as were his sub-contractors working on the project.

Sam proved himself proficient at solving the unforeseen problems which inevitably arise with any building project and excellent at ideas for making improvements. He is also very good in sourcing materials at the best price and was mindful throughout of the cost of the project.

We would definitely use Sam again and have no hesitation in recommending him to other potential clients.

Michael Day & John Shelly

We would have no hesitation in recommending Sam Keogh Building Services Limited. We have used the company twice and been delighted by the quality of and approach to the work. We found them entirely trustworthy. Work was done when they said it would be done to a very high standard and communication was easy and effective throughout both projects.

Steve and Moira

Sam and his team have worked with us on three significant projects:
1. Construction of an extension to our house, including a vaulted ceiling living room.
2. Construction of a garden room and a studio together with hard landscaping including the creation of a walled garden.
3. Complete renovation and alteration of a three bedroomed bungalow.
On each occasion the projects have felt like a collaboration with Sam bringing great ideas as well as the skills and management necessary to deliver the projects within the agreed timescale and budget. Sam’s clear communication provides confidence from beginning to end. He has a team of trustworthy and skilled people including electricians, plumbers, etc who operate with his mindset. Everyone arrives when they say they will, they complete the work to a high standard and are always a pleasure to deal with. We have always been absolutely delighted with Sam’s work and would not hesitate to use him again and to recommend him to his prospective clients.

Ian Shaw

We would highly recommend Sam for any building work needed for the following reasons:-
1) Sam had a detailed project plan for all the work carried out. He managed every detail and kept us informed at every stage of the work. He would let us know who would be coming each day & what was going to be done next etc. He was always pleasant and determined to minimise any disruption caused by the work. He discussed any arising or unexpected issues with us and was able to deal with them effectively. There were no delays and he managed a few added jobs for us too. Everything went to plan. He was extremely well organised and very professional. This was really much appreciated and played a big part in our satisfaction of how the whole job was carried out. A really nice person.
2) All the tradesmen (without exception) who came were highly skilled, professional, pleasant, respectful of our home, timely and very hard working.
Thank you to each and every one of you for all your skill and hard work, Sam, Liam, Freddie, Gary & Lee (builders) Sam & Liam (Plumbers), Ian & Jake (Carpenters), Mark & Benny (electricians), Dan (plasterer), Mike (tiler) Patrick (flat roofer), Steve & Dave? (Roofers), Neal (door & windows fitter). A fantastic team.

Thank you so much Sam!  Lizzie and Dennis.

Sam Keogh, was the first and only builder we contacted for North Norfolk projects. He came highly recommended, at the top of a long list of contacts. When we met Sam, we immediately had a good feeling! It was the right decision.

We have completed three fairly large projects together over the last three years, where Sam’s planning and organisational skills enabled all the projects to proceed stress free. Sam’s communicational skills are very good, nothing is too much trouble, the standard of work is very high (I am a perfectionist!). He has good forward thinking ideas which allow projects to develop and flow accordingly.

His team of employee’s and chosen sub contractors demonstrate exceptional dedication and hard work. They are polite, friendly, helpful, reliable and competent. Most folks can’t wait to get rid of their builders at the end of a project, but for us, it has always been a sad occasion!

Sam Keogh’s Building Services – one of North Norfolk’s best kept secrets!

Alison Allinson and Guy Gowing

We were delighted that we chose Sam Keogh to carry out a substantial extension to our bungalow. He started on schedule, turned up every day and completed on schedule and within budget.

The quality of workmanship was of the highest standard. Sam and his crew were courteous and tidy during the three months of building work. No hesitation in recommending Sam Keogh.

Campbell Welsh

Professional and exceptional.
Our property is in a small loke with no access for lorries, vans or skips, with all that in mind he managed to turn our small cottage into somewhere anyone would be proud to own. Always going the extra mile, sympathetic to the area and always considerate of neighbours.

He has a great work ethic and we have used him on a few occasions and would certainly use him again.
Would highly recommend, outstanding work.

Linda Cripps

I would like to highly recommend Sam and his amazing team. I took on a project in Blakeney that Sam project managed. He took all the stress away and ran the project very professionally. The workmanship was incredible. He sourced materials and had many fantastic ideas for the cottage.

Great work Sam! Thank you so much.

Jane Robb

Sam renovated our property last year and did a great job. He was always contactable, helpful and reliable. The work was completed to a very high standard. We would be happy to recommend him to anyone.
