Andrew was excellent in terms of design and providing creative solutions to building challenges. We did not need to hire an architect or designer. He came up with novel ideas and solutions which could then be passed by planning. He is a strong, burly Yorkshireman who inspires confidence and trust. Andrew carried out three separate phases of development on our property, all of which have been carried out with professionalism, on budget and within a reasonable time frame.
We enjoyed working with you

As the Managing Director of Batiman Bergerac I required a company who delivered a high standard of work to assist us when we enlarged our show room of doors and windows etc
Team Astruc were happy to work along with our staff to deliver on time a range of quality displays. They were professional, punctual, polite, flexible, tidy and completed the project before the dead line.

Their scope of work included
Tiling floors and walls
I would have no hesitation in recommending Astruc Renovations

Mr S Pauly - Managing Director

Moving to South West France for us was a huge decision andparticularly as we hadlived in large houses we had renovated in England using builders we knew and trusted. Andrew, Ashley and all; the Astruc team very quickly made the apprehension disappear.
Their work was not only first class but all were a joy to work with. Our house is now admired by many. and we are regularly asked how we found such a good team who not only worked to time and budget but were always there for us.Not forgetting Andrews patience in helping choose kitchen and bathroom fittings, tiles etc. etc.
It you want your work achieved to the highest standard, total care and cost effective we would highly recommend Astruc.

Christie and Tim Fairburn. Agen 47 8.1.2013.

We employed Astruc Renovations for erecting a garden shed that we bought from Briconautes. They also installed a wood burning stove and carried out external decorations and improved some garden lighting. We are satisfied with the work and service. They keep their word and come on time at this company and that is good business.
If you are looking for a good and reliable versatile company, we can heartily recommend Astruc Renovations.

Mr R Frenzel 82 Tarn-et Garonne

Earlier this year, we decided to take the plunge and have our old barn converted into a self contained dwelling for those occasions when we have more people to stay than the main house can hold and, more frequently, when our teenage children come to stay with a gang of friends...

We must say it was rather daunting leaving our property in the hands of someone we had met only a few times, although he had come highly recommended from a number of people we had spoken to.

Andrew and his team totally transformed our dusty old barn into a wonderful dwelling, following our requests with precision and always completed each stage on time. Whenever he came upon situations we had not discussed, he always came up with excellent and practical solutions, with which we were very happy.

There is no doubt that the end result exceeded our expectations and we can say with hands on hearts that it has been the best building experience we have ever had.

Andrew and his team are charming, extremely competent, diplomatic (when needed!) and hard working.
We were not living at the property during this project, so it was all carried out remotely. We felt completely comfortable putting out trust in Andrew at all times.

We would definately recommend Astruc Renovations to anyone looking for a high quality and sensibly priced project (despite him being a Yorkshireman...!).

We are happy to recommend Astruc Renovations as they have done excellent work for us over the last two years. Our garage and car-port were completed to a high standard, on budget and on time, as was the total renovation of our en-suite bathroom. The workers arrived punctually and always cleaned up after themselves.

I hereby certify that Astruc Renovation has done work in my office (replacing the floating floor). The work was carried out satisfactorily and within the time promnised.


I appreciated the professionalism and quality of workmanship from Astruc Renovations.

We would not hesitate recommending the work of Astruc Renovations.

Since we purchased our house some 6 years ago Mr Faraday and his group through their innovative planning of projects and extreemly high standard of work have helped us convert an old farm house in to a beautiful home.

Team Astruc we must say are a friendly bunch and are always on time and dont exceed quoted budgets

Eileen and John Flynn - 'La Tuilerie'

We had a tremendous experience with Andrew Faraday from Astruc Renovations and most strongly recommend that you consider using his services.
His project management, budgeting and quality finishing is excellent.

Andrew and Emma Clout – Lifernet, Frespech

“We employed ASTRUC for some weeks during 2008 to undertake some major changes at our recently acquired property in France including alterations, refits and a new extension. From our first enquiry they responded promptly in visiting us to view our house and listen to our requirements. They made helpful suggestions including what type of materials we would best benefit from, which suppliers would give us the best service and delivery times and what order the various works would be best undertaken so as to avoid too much disruption to family life. Also helpful was giving us realistic time schedules for when they would undertake the work and detailed written estimates on costs with allowance for variations according to material choice and unforeseen problems occurring during the works. They showed a good knowledge of French building regulations and planning requirements and employed efficient French sub-contactors to attend to electrical and plumbing installations.

Once engaged they arrived promptly both at the time specified to begin the work and each day to carry it out. They kept us up-dated as to progress and any adjustments needed in costs or changes in the work order. Everything we had asked for was completed according to our requirements and within the time they estimated. Throughout there was attention to detail and personal interest in what we wanted.

Overall we were and continue to be very impressed and satisfied with ASTRUC and would confidently recommend them to anyone desiring reliable building contractors.

We would be happy to give further details verbally and can be contacted by arrangement through Mr. Andrew Faraday of ASTRUC.”

Mr and Mrs Day Lot et Garonne

We have employed ASTRUC on many occasions over the last eight years to carry out a large range of works on our barn conversion in the Lot and Garonne.
Prior to selecting ASTRUC we had two other building contractors, neither of whom matched the quality and efficiency we have received from ASTRUC. We particularly like the fact that Andrew and the team at ASTRUC are excellent at discussing our initial requirements and proposing the most effective way to carry out the work. They are creative, they understand French building regulations and planning requirements, and are able to provide and manage quality French sub-contactors when needed.
Whilst we were away from site, they kept us up-dated as to progress and often sent photographs of work complete. All work was completed according to our requirements and within the time and financial parameters they estimated.
We are still using ASTRUC and have no difficulty in recommending them to anyone requiring a reliable, efficient, and cost effective building contractor who provides high quality products.

It is with great pleasure that I take a few minutes to thank you for our new kitchen

All our wishes and expectations have been realized by your attention to detail.
The quality of your work, good advise and professionalism are a mark for your future clients. It is rare these days to find a company capable to realize a project in time and on expected budgets.
The kindness of your employees was also much appreciated

I have no hesitation to recommend Astruc Renovations for all your projects private or professional

I am at your disposal for any other comments

Mr G Ferrod

“The project to modernise and dry wall the bathroom of our early 19th century farmhouse was commissioned at the end of our last visit in 2012 and carried out to our agreed specifications by Astruc Renovations over the winter to be ready for our first visit this year. This work involved plumbing/plastering/tilling and electrics and whilst Andrew had emailed us pictures of the completed job at the end of March which much pleased us we were not able to actually physically view the work until mid May, when we were even more delighted with the results.

We are very used to commissioning refurbishment work on properties in the U.K. which we project manage and closely supervise ourselves but have not been disappointed by the end result of this project which has been carried out on time, on budget and remotely without any further involvement from us after the acceptance of the estimate for the agreed specification .”
