The quality of their work is very high…
I wanted to convert my loft for a number of years and having previously worked in the building trade I knew what was involved in converting the loft and how much it would cost. Realising that if I was to do the work myself it would take too long so I decided to get a number of quotes from companies that I either knew or had done work for friends.
Phil was the second company I had quote for the work and after about an hour of chatting with him I knew that he was the person that I wanted to do the conversion. He knew exactly what needed to be done and gave a really simple price breakdown and there was no hidden costs, basically we paid what was quoted at the agreed stages of the build. There was no massive up-front cost to pay, just stages of payments after work had been completed. The only extras I had to pay was for work I requested on top of the agreed work.
Work started as soon as the building regs was approved by the local council. Phil, Dave and Trevor were always on site before 8am and really cracked on with the work at great speed. The steels and main flooring were installed within the first week and the main dormer was constructed within 3 weeks of the guys starting work. All of the work up until the stairs were installed was done through the roof and there was very little disruption and dust/dirt in the existing house. There were many small things that the guys did that really impressed me like after the old loft insulation was removed they hoovered the ceilings to remove all the old dust/dirt then they laid chicken wire between the new joists before laying the new insulation. These small points are things that other firms probably wouldn’t do and show the level of detail and care that D&P Construction put into your home.
The work was scheduled to take 8 weeks however it was all completed within 6 weeks. The quality of their work is very high and I’m very happy with the level of detail and finish in the work they completed.
The team were all very friendly, helpful and understanding to our needs and any always cleaned up after themselves before going home each day. Phil always took time to explain to us what work they were doing at each stage of the build. The loft conversion has transformed our house and we are delighted with the end result.
I am very pleased with the build and the finish.
D&P Contracts constructed a single storey extension and raised decking area to the rear of my small bungalow. They also recommended someone to draw the plans and submit to Havering Council. The work began in April 2013 in snow but that didn’t hold anything up.
Dave or Phil was always on site when the electrician, plasterers etc. were here. The internal and external plastering was completed in one day to a first class finish. They cleared up each night to keep the mess to a minimum and removed the rubbish. I am very pleased with the build and the finish. It has given me exactly what I need and asked for.
I have no hesitation in recommended these guys to you, just as I was recommended myself.
I really do feel I made the right choice.
We chose D&P Contracts as they came very highly recommended and we now know why! Our loft conversion was a painless procedure. For the first three weeks all the work was carried out from the scaffold so there was minimal disruption to home life. When the work came inside, there was still minimal disruption and any mess was cleared up each night.
D&P and all outside agencies involved roofers, plumbers, electricians, plasterers carried out their work in a professional manner and have worked to a very high standard.
We would not hesitate to recommend Phil and Dave, who from start to finish have been on site or on the end of a phone.
We were quoted six weeks and it was completed in six weeks. Unlike many other contractors D&P do not leave you to undertake other work.
We are extremely happy with our new bedroom and en-suite – thanks D&P.
