Jeffrey & Wilkes were our chosen builder from 4 estimates for our loft conversion, not the cheapest but certainly not the most expensive, recommended by a friend. A great choice for us!
From day 1 when all the materials arrived, to their last day, we have nothing but praise for them. A brilliant team of guys, worked full days, none of this vanishing for several days to another job. Our job was a little different in that we had a 'bare bones', that is the loft was created to our specifications but the fitting out & decorating was to be done by ourselves. We found them to be efficient & helpful all the way through.
The work was done between November 2009 to January 2010 in one of the worst winters in recent history, we had heavy rain, howling winds & a lot of snow, but undaunted, the guys worked on, made sure that we were watertight (except for one room!) & kept an eye on all the outside structures, we are a large end terrace with a hip roof so we had scaffolding on three sides.
All the guys were so nice, some days we had as many as 9 here - much tea was consumed- but without exception we found them to be polite & considerate - shoes were always removed before entering the front door & we can honestly say that we heard no bad language during the time they were here, a real bonus as we had our young grand daughter here too.We felt that we really got to know them.
The work was done to a high standard & overseen by the project manager.
We now have a very individual 'penthouse' with an en suite bedroom & living room/kitchen which houses our son, his partner & their 2 cats in comfort.
A big thank you to Greg, always there if a query arose & answered with patience & good humour. Thank you also goes to Darren, Big Dan, Little Dan, Martin & Jason who spent best part of a day plastering & bouncing around on stilts to reach the ceilings, sorry if I have forgotten anyone!
