Ridgewood Contracts carried out all of the external surfacing work at our brand new dealership in Penkridge, Staffordshire. I can highly recommend them as a contractor for the quality of workmanship, attention to detail and completing the job on time in what was a tight schedule. I have also used them for projects on my own personal property and found them to be very professional.
