Customers reference:

We are extremely pleased with the work that Dominic’s Green’s team (The Builders SW) did at our terraced cottage. Despite many logistic conundrums (re access, no right angles, age or building and non traditional construction – cob, stone, sandstone, rubble, etc!) the team did a brilliant job. The brief was to replace 4 existing rear roofs – 3 different apexes and 1 flat – with one single apex roof with skylights. Each roof rafter had to be hand measured and cut to a different size – a real work of art in itself – and would have been delightful to have been able to have kept exposed to admire – but regs demanded proper insulation, thus hiding them from sight! With the roof in situ we were able to knock down 2 internal walls and relocate our previously micro kitchen into a fabulous new space, and create a lovely new snug with views. During the process both of our tiny bathrooms had to be updated – which we’re delighted with. Several ‘oddities’ were discovered – like the 1912 bathroom extension that had been built around a caste iron gutter – cause of so much of our leaks and damp…. Our build extended over the 2 significant snowstorms or 2018 and we, with our cats and dog had to live in the house as work progressed. Throughout the build we were looked after and treated respectfully by the team, our foreman in charge of the entire job onsite daily, pulling in different trades efficiently, as needed. All was left as clean and tidy as possible each day end. Recommend. A+

Our Comments:

This was a very difficult project due to the fact it had very poor excess and we had to deal with extreme weather conditions, the weather put us back a week or so but we got the job done to a high standard and the customer was very happy with our work. The customers had a previous rear lean to extension with four different corrugated roofs. As the customers kitchen was in the existing extension, we had to be very considerate and separate the job into different phases, so the customers wouldn’t be without a kitchen. The job was very trying for everyone but it was finished to a great standard and the customer was very pleased with the out come. It’s a large rear kitchen extension with snug leading to a new patio area with bifold doors.
