D&G Ltd won the contract to remodel, extend and fully refurbish our holiday home.
We received several quotes from builders and it was only after I took the time to spend a few hours with Dave, visiting several of the houses he had either built or refurbished that I decided to place the work through his company. I cannot recommend taking the time to meet the builder in person and visit some of their previous projects ahead of agreeing to a large schedule of works.
The house required a huge amount of work to bring it up to standards. We engaged an architect to help us with the design work and given we were extending the property a full planning application was submitted and eventually approved.
The work started in November 2016 and continued until the summer of 2017. By the time the work had finished not much of the original house was left. Work included, new concrete floors and full underfloor heating system, much structural work, including removal of many interior walls (several supporting) to open up the inside of the property, lots of steel added to support, new doors and glazing throughout, full rewiring and pluming, full tiling, new bathrooms, wet room, new kitchen, moving the stairs, removal of interior garage to increase living space and 1st floor extension which created new master bedroom and en suite. House was completed to a very high standard, with triple glazing, two sets of bi-fold windows and a feature glass floor to ceiling window which allowed lovely sea views. Dave also removed reliance on the old oil boiler and installed an air source heat pump. The exterior of the house was fully rendered and a new roof was also added. Outside new block paving was added and also raised wooden decking at the front of the house. The finished house looked incredible inside and out.
Dave and his team totally transformed the property and we cannot be happier with the finished job. We didn’t employ a project manager and throughout the build I was in contact with Dave to agree work. Where extra expenditure came up this was always discussed and agreed. The work was pretty much completed on time. Dave and his team were a pleasure to work with. In the best part of a year working together there were no issues. He takes great pride and care in his work. There were a couple of things I wanted changing and these were done with no fuss. I would happily employ D&G again and recommend their services.
