Kingsmead came via personal recommendation as I was looking to covert my attic. The project involved removing the entire roof and replacing it at a steeper angle and was not a small job. I chose Kingsmead to do my work as Adam delivered a proposal to me when he said he would and at a price that was competitive. I did not need to chase him up and I received a written quote which we discussed over a cup of tea and agreed a start date 3 weeks out. He started exactly when he said he would, and I found his team to be very courteous and professional.

They made every effort to keep the mess to a minimum and respected the fact that it was my home and I was still living there. they kept me informed about what the next steps were and when they would be on or off site. There was one significant issues that came up during the build; the size of the existing floor beams were not sufficient and the details supplied by the architect were not correct nor were they verified. I was worried that this would add extra cost and delays. Adam dealt with this brilliantly, bringing in a Stress Engineer to sort the calculations out and installing new joists. It was easily and quickly sorted and did not hold the build up in any way and the extra cost was almost nothing.

The work was finished on time (a week before Christmas) and the building certificate was issued immediately. I was extremely pleased that such a big project went so smoothly. The work was to a very high standard, and I really appreciated the help and advice that was given in terms of some of the finishing touches; the balconies look superb and much better than the solution that I was proposing! It was a pleasure using Kingsmead and I would not hesitate in recommending them.
