We have lived in our house for over 30 years and often considered converting the loft.
We had architects and builders in on previous occasions but they never seemed to be able to give us the design we wanted. However, we saw a Loftplan advertisement in our local Windsor magazine and thought we would get them in just to have a look and see what they thought.
Within minutes, Alan had come up with all the ideas we wanted to hear and assured us they were all feasible. Their architect came a few days later and their quote arrived by post shortly after. We couldn’t quite believe we could get exactly the design we wanted so we allowed them to go for planning permission, which was granted, and the work began!
The initial team consisted of Jim and Jordan who had the horrible task of dealing with nearly 70 years’ worth of dust and dirt that had accumulated up there but they didn’t complain once. They didn’t enter the house but knocked a hole in the roof where the largest window was going to be and entered through there and worked there right up to the stage when the stairs went in. They were hard working, reliable, professional guys who just got on with the task in hand, always friendly and polite and a credit to Loftplan.
In fact, everyone we dealt with at Loftplan was the same. The plumber, Alex was very conscientious, making sure that everything worked and we were happy. The carpenter, Mark, was brilliant! His attention to detail really has made the conversion something special. The roofer, Brett, had a particularly difficult job as, although ours is a large old house, it is semi-detached and had differing roof levels but, again, his professionalism and attention to detail has made it look amazing.
Everyone at Loftplan has been a pleasure to deal with. All the staff seem to really care about getting the job done well. As a result, we now have an additional floor to our house that is full of light with wonderful views over the river that we couldn’t enjoy before.
Loftplan stuck to their original quote (which is unusual these days!), and our new space was worth every penny!
