“We bought a run-down 1920s bungalow, requiring total renovation and bringing up to modern standards – insulation, electrics, plumbing etc. We also wanted to replace the substandard extension at the back and extend into the attic. In the event the back of the house was totally remodelled, the kitchen moved, a staircase built into the attic – which was opened out and made habitable, and a second toilet added.

Pat was recommended by our architect, and he and his team did a fantastic job. We have not been involved in anything like this before but Pat and his team discussed and developed our ideas with us and added many suggestions of their own. He had skilled workers from many different trades and was able to dovetail them in so that the work proceeded very efficiently. He was always available to discuss what was required and what was happening, and he took on without complaint many late requests that we hadn’t foreseen at the beginning. When we needed to choose fittings etc. he recommended and dealt with the suppliers.

Pat and his colleagues were all extremely pleasant. They were proud of their work and worked hard. We got on well with them all, as did our neighbours, who were potentially inconvenienced by the major building site next door.

Despite the complexities of the project, which extended over several months, Pat kept to the agreed budget. We now have a beautiful house, exactly as, or maybe better than, we had envisaged, and everything to a very high standard.

We would unreservedly recommend Pat!”
