FAQ

 

Why should we use your company when we have had cheaper quotes?

Answer: 

Cheap is not synonymous with quality or expertise which are two things you can be assured of when choosing us but don’t just take our word for it.

Have a read of our customers quotes and once you have expressed an interest in using us, we will gladly arrange for you to visit a completed project in your area.

Do I need planning permission for a loft conversion?

Answer:

This type of alteration to your house is classed as permitted development and therefore would not require planning permission.

However, there are strict guidelines and exceptions to this ruling which you can check here:

Are we responsible for organising building control for our extension?

Answer:

You are at liberty to contact the council and organise this yourself but we do work

closely with local building inspectors and we are happy to arrange this on your behalf

as it often speeds up the process.

Will our project be completed without interruption?

Answer:

Yes. We will never leave your project half finished for weeks on end whilst we work on other projects.

We agree a time frame with you in principle from the outset and this is what we adhere to unless you wish to make any amendments.

 

Will I always be able to get hold of someone to discuss my requirements during the project?

Answer:

Yes. Our office hours are Monday to Saturday 08:00-17:00 and there will always be someone at the end of the phone.

Outside of these hours, we have an answer service which we aim to respond to the next working day.

Can I change my requirements once the project is underway?

Answer:

Yes. Our aim is to deliver your vision for your build/renovation so we understand that this requires a degree of flexibility.

However, there is usually a cost implication which will not have been accounted for in the original quote so this would be communicated clearly with you.

Do you subcontract?

Answer:

No. All our tradesmen are registered and employed by the company.

They are qualified and experienced giving you peace of mind and the reassurance that you will be dealing with familiar faces throughout your project.

 

What are your site working hours?

Answer:

We are on site each weekday morning by 07:45 to start work at 08:00 and we finish at 17:00.

We are also able to work on Saturdays if this is something that you require.
