Restoration of an extensively water damaged Bungalow, resulting from a burst pipe in the attic while unoccupied. 


Lawrence Hawthorn, based in England.


“I selected McBean Land and Property after interviewing a number of potential contractors. My interaction was with Ewan Beesley the Commercial Director and his office. 

I liked the straightforward, friendly, helpful approach Ewan took with me he was also very knowledgable and professional and it was obvious this was a person and a company who new it`s business and the market. 

As I live in England and would be remote to the project site, it was absolutely essential I had a contractor whom, I could rely on and who would deliver the project to a high standard and on time and on budget. I would also need a lot of advice and assistance on my decisions – it`s not easy for anyone dealing with a property disaster, when I as client are 400 miles away.

Ewan and McBean Land and property Group delivered all of the above. 

I am delighted with the outcome of the project and with Ewan and his team. It has been a great success. I have also benefited enormously from their guidance and advice which has been invaluable. Quality work at a fair price and on budget and on time. Delighted !

I highly recommend the team at McBean Land and Property. For me, they are as good as it gets.”
