5-star recommended housebuilder
How the survey works
The HBF customer satisfaction survey is an Independent survey that our customers take part in once their purchase has completed. The results are based on a single question:"would you recommend your builder to a friend?" The star ratings are applied as follows:
- 5-star = 90% or over recommended
- 4-star = 80 - 89.9% recommended
- 3-star = 70 - 80% recommended
- 2-star = 60 - 70% recommended
- 1-star = 50 - 60% recommended
We're more highly recommended than any other major national housebuilder. So you can trust us with your move.
We've won more Pride in the Job Awards than any other national housebuilder for 13 years in a row
Since 2007 we have won a total of 734 Pride in the Job Awards, that's more than any other national housebuilder.
This year we have won an incredible 74 Awards, more than any other national housebuilder for the 13th year in a row.
NHBC Pride in the Job is the home-building industry’s most prestigious awards programme, dedicated to recognising Site Managers who achieve the highest standards in quality home-building. A Pride in the Job award is the highest industry accolade a site manager can receive.
Each year as part of the awards, the NHBC join with leading experts in the home-building industry to rigorously judge over 16,000 Site Managers across the nation. Winning a Pride in the Job award requires consistently high scoring across a variety of categories, including:
- Quality of workmanship at every stage of the build process, including foundations, roofs, surface finishes and external works
- Leadership skills, which are reflected by a high level of morale and motivation on site
- Technical expertise and their ability to resolve issues on site
- A certain ‘X’ factor that sets them apart from their peers
