Loft Boarding, Moving a Loft Hatch and Filling in old Hatch
This is a fantastic company, 100% recommend them.
We had a loft hatch moved, the old hatch blocked in, new hatch in the hallway with a lovely wooden ladder, loft boarded out with 18sqm of boards, loft insulation brought up to standard and some new electrics put in.
We had a visit from Charles, who inspected the loft, explained what the team would do and answered all of my silly questions. The quote was very reasonable and we were booked in 6 weeks later.
The electritcian came a few days early, as they have got COVID bubbles setup for their teams, and was finished in a couple of hours, very clean and tidy.
The carpenters arrived promptly at 8 on the day, straight to work with barely a break, they were finished with the job and had cleaned everything up by 1:30. The work was done to a very high standard and we were really pleased.
All the guys were friendly, knowledagble and efficient. Adherance to COVID rules was very good.
Getting hold of back-office staff was easily done via email and they answered the couple of questions I had with no fuss.
All in a fantastic experience, we will be contacting them again for our next project.
Replacement of old Asbestos Garage Roof
We had our old asbestos garage roof removed, and a new roof installed. Mike and his team were very personable and efficient, with Mike supervising the team to ensure that work was completed before the expected date.
The team was hardworking and skilled, and we are very happy with the completed works. Though not the cheapest, we’re glad we chose a builder with many years of experience and one who sets high standards.
From the outset, Mike impressed us with his professional and friendly approach, and we were always happy to receive his very prompt and comprehensive and detailed answers to our questions, usually by e-mail.
Thank you, Mike and the team for an excellent job done. We’ll most certainly recommend you as a first-class builder in future.
Replacing old Doors and Door Frames in old House
We hired foundations up last year to board our loft, then again to fit a new door frame and a front door.
On both jobs they were excellent, in particular the front door was a challenge (old house everything uneven) that no one else wanted to take on! Would definitely recommend to others.
