TDR Kent is a small, highly reputable company that can find a solution for your building needs. We are based in Canterbury, but our range of services cover the whole of Kent.

What Professor Ian R Swingland had to say about us:

This company has built a long retaining wall, a courtyard, an extension to my town house and the extensive groundwork to a very large glasshouse erected by Hartley Botanic. All of them presented problems:

  • the wall adjoined another property,
  • the tarred and pea-gravelled courtyard needed a central sump to penetrate the chalk used when it was a farmyard and allow water to seep away,
  • the extension had to appear the same as the house, and
  • the glasshouse groundworks had to be within fine tolerances and involved repositioning the brown water piping to a cesspit, specialised electrical and plumbing needs.

They dealt with any planning permission or building regulations needed, were fast, co-operative, paid attention to detail, had a sense of humour, and did a fine job, which was finished on time and within budget. They finish jobs well and even seeded with grass the disturbed earth raked smooth.

I have no hesitation in recommending them to clients as the best in the area and capable of taking on anything successfully, even for demanding clients like me!

What Tim Bostock had to say about us:

Terry Relph is an excellent local builder and clearly has considerable knowledge and experience with complicated ground work.

I have two old cottages in Littlebourne one of which needed car access from the rear of the property, away from the busy main road, while the adjacent cottage had an existing, unused, narrow and very overgrown drive with garage. We wanted a design that would accommodate improved access to both properties... Having already put some ideas together on paper, I went on search for hen's teeth - (aka the "eliable local builder" ) and fortunately found Terry.

Following a few site visits, we came upon a scheme which met my requirements. Some modifications were needed during the works, but overall the outcome is excellent and quality of work very good.

Importantly, Terry does the work himself with strong support from his labour force. They were fast, reliable and always there despite the weather. Highly recommended.
