Loft Conversion

How AllBuilding carried out a loft conversion in Brighton

“We gritted our teeth and got on with the loft conversion. And I’m so pleased we did. The increase in the property’s value has more than covered its cost and the extra room is invaluable.”

“We’d been thinking about maximising the space in the attic since we moved in years ago. Our property in St Leonards Gardens, Hove is ideal for conversion and the changes in planning regulations finally convinced us as we could swerve formal planning and build under the new permitted development legislation. Result!

Our architect recommended AllBuilding, which was a big plus in their favour, but we still had three other building firms round to quote. Price is very important of course, but we quickly realised that if our house was to be invaded by builders, approachability and how confident we were of being able to work with them was equally, if not more important. Finally, you need strong and confident project management and we agreed that AllBuilding showed that.

Speaking of planning, we liked the way AllBuilding were able to make faster progress by allocating their people to works on several areas at once. For instance, they literally raised the roof and protected it from the elements at the same time, while making a start on the stairs that were carefully measured up and then put together off-site before installation.

All in all, we’re delighted with the result. AllBuilding were useful in helping us spec. the loft conversion and especially in sourcing materials for the new bathroom. Michael’s trade contacts and buying power was at times overwhelming!”
