The quality of the work proved exceptional, especially the attention to detail. We never thought they would go through the local town records to find exactly the right brick match, which looks fantastic!
In fact the external work from the bricks to pointing is exceptional and makes us smile every day.
The workmen were also considerate and helpful, a god send when you are almost living with them for six months and have a one year old child and are in full time jobs.
From Trevor’s interpretation and improvement of our plans to the professionalism of his team throughout the build phase, we were delighted with the way that out extension was build. Trevor’s project manager Alfie managed the process for us and made sure that any concerns we had were addressed immediately and although all of the trades worked together seemlessly through Alfie’s coordination, the craftsmanship and attention to detail that the core team of Tim and Chris had meant the outcome met out expectation of an outstanding quality build.
Throughout the build there was no scope creep and all of the agreed build milestones were met (or beaten) and although Linley Developments were not the cheapest builder to bid for our work, what they quoted for is exactly what we got. Since we believe that generally you get what you pay for we were delighted with the premium product that Trevor and his team delivered for us and would not hesitate to recommend their work.
Throughout the consultation and design stage we were fully briefed on the complexity of the construction, the disruptive nature of the build, timeframes and estimated costs. Linley took total control of all building regulations, drawing specifications and submissions with the local council, their knowledge and relationship with the building control department was highly professional which gave us comfort as a client.
Once an agreement to commence was made we were introduced to the team of craftsmen who were appointed to carry out the building work. We found these guys to be friendly, totally trustworthy and importantly to us, they lived locally in Hertfordshire.
The Linley team interacted extremely professionally with the other trades and held our privacy, security and saftey as their number one priority; this allowed our family to continue to live normally and still take our family holidays in the knowledge that all was well back home.
The completed build was exactly as planned, costs were slightly higher than forecast due to upgrades on finish and materials but the timeframe was about spot on. As a design and build business we would highly recommend Linley Developments, as such we have welcomed 3 potential Linley clients to our home in the past 6 months.
