Check out what a few of our satisfied customers have to say…
My job (loft conversion) was done really quickly which when you are upside down in your house you really don’t want things dragging on. I received a full written quote, house design plans and visit from a structural engineer. They came in on time and on budget.
All the builders were polite, friendly and conscious it was your home but you have to accept the dust and mess when they are running through the house!!! They worked really hard all day and each day you could see the changes happening. I had a couple of minor accidents but nothing that wasn’t fixed or resolved with no quibbles or problems.
I would recommend them definitely. They have skilled experienced guys working for them and they are always on hand when they are needed. I paid in instalments with final payment when the job was finished which was agreed right at the beginning.
After talking to a few loft specialists we decided to use Loftus as the time quoted for completion of the project was less than half, and having a young child this really appealed.
It was definitely the right decision as the job was completed on time and the quality is excellent. We love the design as what was once a grotty loft now feels like a cool penthouse.
The on site team were very professional and conscientious, which combined with the impressive speed made what can be a large, disruptive job much easier to deal with.
Also, everyone was very flexible to our needs. We were truly amazed that after a week and a half the new structure was already in place.
The aftercare of Darrel and the team has been exemplary too, following up any query we’ve contacted them about immediately.
We would definitely recommend Loftus and would use them again.
We recently had a loft conversion done by Darrel and his team and couldn’t be happier with the result. We have two small children and were really apprehensive about undertaking building work, particularly in terms of the disruption and mess that it was likely to cause.
We interviewed lots of other builders before we selected Loftus. One our primary reasons for selecting them was the fact that 80% percent of the build is undertaken offsite which minimises both the mess and the time they are on site. Darrel told us it would be quick – but you never quite believe it until you see it. Totally amazed to find the structure was in place by day 3! with the help of a huge crane that lifted panels on to the roof. Kids loved it and in fact the whole street were totally impressed by the speed and efficiency of the operation.
I can not recommend Darrel’s team highly enough, all of them worked exceptionally hard, they always arrived on time, were tidy , courteous and took pride in finishing the job to an very high standard. They were also very flexible, we made some last minute changes to the design and they were very accommodating and flexible in approach. We were really worried about the breakthrough stage and whilst Darrel did keep telling us the mess would be minimal- I definitely did not believe that would be the case.
Again, i was shocked to come home one afternoon to find they had done the break through and honestly hadn’t noticed until i saw the hole for the stairways. They basically create and fix a little box thing under the stairway roof that will form the opening cut out from above, hoover in the loft with any remaining dust debris falling into the box which is then detached.
Really impressed, the whole project took just over 3 half weeks. We are so happy with the work, we will be using them again to do our kitchen extension next year!
“Loftus Design and Build completed my loft conversion and back addition walk in bathroom to a very high standard. The specification and attention to detail was always apparent from the very approachable Darrel Gostelow. The loft was constructed to a speedy programme that had very little effect to the day to day family routine.
So pleased with the outcome we decided to upgrade the rest of the house to changing the floors to solid oak, changing the double glazed windows throughout and decorating inside and out.
The disruption, which previously had put us off from doing the work, was minimal and I would recommend this company highly to complete your work in a stress free and professional manner
There are so many programmes on the TV nowadays warning of cowboy builders, that it is pretty scary when trying to find one of the good guys. We got a few people over to quote on our rear extension, but Darrel (of Loftus) , who was recommended by a friend, made an immediate impression and put us at ease. He spoke very clearly about what was needed and how long things would take. When it came to deciding who to use, my wife and I were both convinced that Darrel was the right man.
We knew after day one that we had made the right decision. Darrel’s team at Loftus were, like him, all polite and helpful and also made the minimum of mess. They were friendly with the children and having them in the house didn’t feel intrusive. As the project started to take shape, they would work into the evenings and on weekends in order to get things finished and they all seemed to take such pride in their work. Darrel would literally oversee everything and would have no hesitation in starting things again if he felt something wasn’t quite right. I never felt the need to stand over any of the work men as their daily progress was so evident and Darrel would give me regular updates.
In the end they finished ahead of schedule and the quality of their finish was excellent. The experience definitely restored my confidence in the building trade and I would have no hesitation in recommending Darrel and his team. I would definitely use him again if I were having any other work done
We couldn’t be happier. But I must admit we were nervous before the job started because we had two young kids to deal with as well as major building works in a new home. Thankfully it all went very smoothly.
I delayed having a loft and rear extension done for years because of the months of disruption it would cause, Loftus D&B had both completed from start to finish in 5 weeks without planning. All I had to do was move my furniture in
“Right from the start of the whole process, Darrel at Loftus filled me with confidence. Nothing was ever a problem and when he talked of completion in a matter of weeks, I was sold, though a little apprehensive. Having an 18 month old baby in the flat at the time of our building works (as well as my wife being pregnant) meant that speed and sensitivity were paramount.
Loftus lived up to those expectations and more. The whole team was extremely pleasant and sensitive to our personal environment, keeping everything clean, tidy. They were all trustworthy, respectful, reliable, responsive and clearly very competent. Within 6 weeks our mansard extension was complete (other builders quoted 3 months). Not only was it on time but also on budget. I would highly recommend Darrel’s very skilled team and would definitely use them again wherever possible.
True experts in their field. Thank you to the whole team!” J
