It is Wickford Development's aim to provide the highest of standards both in materials
and workmanship at every stage of construction and fitting.
All our customers see the finished product. Why is this? Wickford Development wish for potential customers to see the new home they want to reserve from day one when they view the completed home.
Unlike national house builders which often concentrate sale completions usually in June and December, Wickford deliver houses to a constant programme.
This helps ensure the quality of the build and eases any time pressures or constraints on the tradesmen constructing the house. With over 50 years experience Wickford have found this minimises post occupancy snagging issues.
The customer views and reserves their completed home before exchange of contracts. There are no hidden extras within the sale price.
Our homes come with fitted carpets, tiled floor surfaces, tiled wall surfaces, quality kitchen appliances, turfed gardens and a patio area, blinds and window dressings to some/all windows.

This is the tenet of Wickford Development Company Ltd who have been building homes for over 50 years.
Our attention to detail and quality has been recognised by the NHBC on a regional and national level numerous times. In 2018 the Woodlands Park Development once again won the NHBC regional 'Pride in the job' award.
Those who view our homes will no doubt appreciate the attention to detail that Wickford, EJ Taylor our Principal Contractor and the professional tradesmen who have worked on the property have invested in constructing the home for sale.
Sometimes it really is the small things that illustrate the care that has been taken. Initially you may walk past this without noticing, but if you stop to take a careful look you may then appreciate how these small details reflect the overall care and quality you can expect from a Wickford home.
