Velux Loft Conversion – Uxbridge
This family in Uxbridge really wanted more space in their home, but having a loft extension done just before the arrival of their new baby seem like a daunting task…
“Planning a loft conversion seemed a complicated and daunting task not to mention a big financial commitment.
We shopped around for quotes but still felt uncertain about going ahead due to the lack of information we received… until we met Graham from Asset Lofts.
His friendly confident manner helped us dismiss our fear of taking the plunge, as he explained the entire process to us including plans, surveyors, building control etc. We felt reassured in choosing Asset Lofts as they are on the Accreditus Register and also accredited by Which?, this gave us peace of mind as we knew our loft rooms would be built to a high standard.
Asset Lofts also gives you the opportunity to view their work first hand, prior to making a commitment.
Once we were granted planning permission we had a window of approximately three months before the due date of our new baby. We were apprehensive about starting the job and completing it on time, not to mention the mess and chaos in between!
We had an initial meeting with the team manager, lead building consultant and one of the builders from the selected team. They had asked us to make a list of any questions and concerns we may have beforehand and they ran through the whole process including answering our questions.
They also created a WhatsApp group for us, the lead builders and company manager which was a great idea. We felt this enhanced communication and everything was above board, it also meant that everyone was available to answer questions or be notified of deliveries etc.
The project took roughly seven weeks from start to finish and everything went smoothly. Despite being one of the coldest winters ever! The cold weather didn’t phase our builders who turned up every day on time and were very hard working. They were extremely courteous and respectful, they ensured they kept mess to a minimum and took care to protect our property. For example, the carpet was hovered several times a day to contain the dust.
With each step they ran through designs and all options with us, giving us full control of the build and our preferences to ensure our satisfaction.
The overall cost of the job was exactly what was quoted with no hidden charges.
The finish of their work was a very high standard. Our neighbours, family and friends were as amazed as we were with the final finish. We are so happy with our loft and it has been the best decision we made and at the right time, ready for our new baby!
We highly recommend Asset Lofts and Chris’s team of builders.
Yes, of course no project comes without any stress at all, however this was an enjoyable one and at the end we actually missed making the builders their morning coffee!”
