Latest Reviews and Feedback
Stephen has built a two story extension to the side of our house, a single story extension to the rear of our house and carried out various items of remodelling.
They have been utterly professional throughout. We are kept regularly informed of progress and plans, they have had multiple workmen from different trades on site throughout the build ensuring delivery without delay. The timescales have been met without fail and to the agreed cost.
The standard of work has been excellent as has the standard of customer care. They keep the site tidy, never failing to sweep and tidy up at the end of each day and have enabled us to remain living in the property throughout.
I would be delighted to recommend them to anyone.
Stephen, Lucas and the team from HQ completed a large two-story extension to our home over the winter of 2016/17, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
The work they completed included the addition of two large bedrooms, two bathrooms, a new large kitchen and utility room as well as opening up on some existing rooms (removal of internal walls with steal supports, etc.). They carried out all works to the highest standard, and they completed it on time and on budget.
The team were always courteous and friendly when onsite, and even provided suggestions/recommendations as the project progressed (render colour, etc.). They made efforts to ensure that we could continue to live at home as much as possible as the work was underway, including leaving cooking facilities available as long as possible and keeping dust under control as much as possible.
The team also managed all of the suppliers and third-party trades (electrics/pluming) without issue, and my family is now very happy in our lovely home.
We appointed HQDB to build our single storey kitchen/ diner extension - this involved removing our existing conservatory, and a neighbours conservatory, extending our kitchen and building a new dining area with pitched roof and velux windows, creating a new downstairs shower room and toilet, installing a new flat roof on the existing side passage and managing all the association installation of gas and electrics and other trades such as the roofer, carpenter and plasterer up to 2nd fix - all except for decoration basically.
Stephen and the HQDB team were professional and considerate at all times. They provided a clear payment schedule prior to work commencing and consulted with us at every stage of the build to discuss options. They were happy to support discussions with our neighbour regarding work along the party wall which reassured her. When we requested additional items not in the original specification, they were always accommodating and happy to provide advice. They were always respectful and thoughtful of our home, clearing up and trying to minimise disruption to us as far as possible during the works. All of the team are skilled, pleasant and professional at all times and we were more than happy to trust them with keys/ access when we weren't there. We are very happy with the standard of work and the final result and would not hesitate to recommend HQDB to others - in fact we already have!
