April 2010  - Mr and Mrs Fiveash - Woking.

We had quite a large build which converted our 3 bed 1 bath detached property into a 4 bed 2 bath with extension to the kitchen and living room.

From the very start we knew Dean was our preferred builder, he spent time taking us through everything on our plans asking if we had thought about details from ceilings, door positions, windows, lights, sockets etc. and helping us make our minds up on those we had not even considered, plus his quote was competitive. Every meeting we had throughout the build process were very relaxed and all the way through Deans experience and creativity really helped us from making some basic mistakes, achieve the best from our original design and saved us some money along the way too.

At the start we discussed the schedule of works and from that we were able to plan ahead and it was clear that Dean went out of his way to ensure we experienced as little disruption as possible. Our build spanned some of the worst weather for a long time (Nov 2009 - April 2010) including some of the wettest and coldest weather. Although this did impact the completion date it was by exactly the number of days lost to the bad weather! Amazing. The coldest weather was around the time of 'knocking-through' to help us Dean erected a wall within our living room so we could still use it while the work continued on the other side, we greatly appreciated this, he even lagged it for extra warmth.

With Dean's ideas and creativity, we were able to redesign almost all of the upstairs, meaning that we gained an en-suite. Dean and his structural engineer, who he obviously has a good working relationship with, sorted out all the changes required. And this was all achieved without adding any extra days or costs to the final bill as it was considered to be the same amount of work just in a different shape than originally agreed.

We had several meetings at key stages. At each point Deans attention to details were obvious and really helped speed things along later as there were seldom any urgent decisions to be made.

Throughout the work Dean and his team were always punctual getting the maximum work out of the daylight hours available and they were also incredibly tidy throughout never leaving mess or anything dangerous that our three children could hurt themselves on.

Deans work is clearly of a high quality and he expects the same from anyone else he involves on the job, he sources good quality components and I think this shows, we were very pleased especially after a number of friends who have undertaken similar projects before ours commented that they wish theirs looked as good as ours. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
