I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend LMB Group Loft Conversion Specialists to my friends and family!I wanted a reliable and trustworthy building firm. Navigating the construction industry can often be daunting, risky and expensive. For people needing reassurance, I found LMB offers a well-rehearsed, standardized working method that has given my family and I the results we were looking for, combined with their approved building specialists with proven and established experience. The workmanship was fully backed by a friendly professional admin team, always available via email or phone to give answers to our questions.I wanted to keep costs under control. LMB provided me with a clear itemized payment schedule and kept to the original quote. This was key to helping me maintain course on budget throughout the project. I did encounter some unexpected costs in connection with building issues and, out of inexperience, selected more expensive fixtures and fittings out of a range of choices that were not included in my initial quote. I wanted to be kept informed.Joanna was crucial in informing me of project updates and helping to communicate our expectations effectively to Lee and contractors. Charis and Shirley were always happy to explain any financial queries and quickly settle arising concerns, making the project experience a very good one. I am very grateful to MD Lee who managed our project. Tirelessly available at any time of day, in person or by phone, liaising directly with contractors on our behalf, offering his experience and solutions and prompting progress. All contractors were considerate, professional and tidy. A number were exceptional, like Laurence and Bobby on structural building work, Agim and Team on plastering, Eddie and Ryan on tiling and Kevin on carpentry.LMB Group and Team, thank you for giving us the home we were hoping for – super job, we love it!I would call upon your services again any day.Spenser Pession More...

Note for transparency : We were offered vouchers of our choice in an exchange for honest reviews. I was planning to provide feedback anyway (not immediately) as my personal experience says that honest reviews help others when making decisions. And that's how other reviews helped me to find LMB. So, it's a nice gesture from LMB to spend their money to encourage customers to write reviews when they really don't need to do that.Back to business..In summary, we are happy and pleased with the deliverables from LMB hence the 5 star. I was in between 4 and 5 but let's be honest, you can't expect a perfect product and a completely stress free project. It took me 2-3 months to find the right company to execute our loft conversion project and deliver to satisfaction. I found LMB in google quite last min after my frustration with the other local builders and Simply Loft. They simply failed to understand our requirements and slow. Lee was fast responding to our request for a house visit and kicking off the project under a demanding deadline. He went through the details with me & my partner as he understood the urgency of our request and our busy work schedule. We started the discussion in June/July and LMB delivered the loft within the timeframe they promised.Not to mention that LMB has groups of experienced traders to deliver the promises to customers. From the builders (Rob Hattan and his lads), the tiler (Harry and his boys), the plasterers, the plumbers (Matt, his son and that chatty man), they are all very experienced, polite, good chat, and always respond to our text messages/phone calls. Even Lee made himself available on WhatsApp and responded to our questions at odd hours (weekends/late evening/early morning).Items for improvement:Communication: Once the loft was build and pending small items like skip removal, site clearance, plumbing completion due to our own issue with the shower tray from Victorian plumbing (don't use them!), we weren't informed when traders will be onsite. There were days we arranged to work from home but no ones turned up. And when we're in the office, one of our neighbours called to inform that someone was throwing tiles from our roof. So, we weren't too happy about that and called Lee immediately to resolve.Quote transparency in the contract: There are some extra items which we requested that we willing to pay such as traders to install extra switches for us and etc. There are items we requested but probably not in the quote so should have mentioned in the contract under additional cost. There are fixed materials which we won't have knowledge about should have also been mentioned in the contract if LMB thinks the design might change (for example that surveyor suggested 5x2 timber instead of 4x2 timber) and the additional steel. All these could have been avoided but we learned that now.Will we recommend LMB? Definitely yes! Will we use their service in the future - yes, if they still have those great guys supporting them. To be honest, I don't think those guys/traders/builders will do business with Lee or LMB if they're not all honest in doing business together . More...

We recently had our loft converted by LMB, the work is to a high standard and was completed promptly, all of the tradesman were very professional and helpful, the office staff were also very good following the payment schedule was easy and we always knew what was what was going on. I would definitely recommend LMB lofts. Excellent! More...

So glad we converted our loft with LMB Group. We wake up with the perfect view every morning! The work took place very quickly, efficiently and professionally. Brandon kept us informed of progress on a daily basis. The teams all cleared up at every stage and I felt that our property was looked after by all the different trades. During our quote, Lee took us through how much space we'd achieve and what sort of things we could use it for, which helped a lot. He also showed us photos of similar sized lofts to help us visualise what our loft could look like. We're so happy with the excellent quality of the finish. I'm still surprised at how easy the whole build was. Our loft is our piece of heaven now. More...

2 Months!! That's the 2 words that sums up the best part of the service we received from LMB, in the completion of our loft conversion. After considering 10 potential building companies, I chose LMB primarily because of the initial assurances & discussions with Lee. However, from the 1st day of works I was impressed with the workmanship - the speed of construction was also impressive, with the structural work (inclusive of a re-roof) was completed in 3-4 weeks (Thanks Lawrence & Bobby). The wider team/skills followed thereafter; The excellent finishes from the plasterers (Thanks Agim) & the tiler (Thanks Eddie), the high quality & attention to detail of the plumber (Thanks Matt), the electrician (Thanks Pete), the carpenter (Thanks Jermaine), and last but not least - the diligence and perfectionism from the roofer (Thanks Steve). Aside from the fantastic results and how pleased we are with our completed loft conversion, the fact that I am able to remember/name all the work team above - says something more about LMB! The LMB team (including Joanna & Charis in the office), met our expectations and always endeavoured to accommodate all our requirements! Thanks Lee & the LMB Team!Much Appreciated More...

Good except for the plumbing.We used LMB for a dormer loft conversion recently. The core LMB team was great. They were considerate, hard-working, and got the main building work done very quickly. Special shout out to Brandon the foreman who was excellent. Most of the trades that LMB subcontracted to were also very good quality.So why not 5 stars? The plumbing work was atrocious. At first they put all the pipes in the wrong place, despite being given a clear diagram, and later they attached the bathroom radiator to the hot and cold water feeds instead of the central heating. To be fair to LMB, the whole thing was eventually sorted out with no extra cost to us, although there was a lot of extra hassle involved.There were a few additional unexpected costs, but by and large the costs were in line with LMB’s quote. The final product is very high quality and we are very happy with it. Would recommend, but don’t let Matt do your plumbing. More...

A great building company! Lee and the team are highly professional, friendly, punctual, and produce a great quality of build. There were different contractors brought in for each stage, which meant they could seamlessly work around each other. The outside structural work was all finished in 3-4 weeks, which was incredibly fast and efficient.Lee checked in with us regularly, and also with the different contractors to ensure things ran smoothly. We are delighted with the outcome and the finished product. More...

LMB carried out a loft conversion and I am pleased with the result.The work started with Laurence and Bobby who carried out the bulk of the conversion. They were both very good and carried out the work quietly and efficiently with little impact on our daily lives. The roofer, electrician, plasterers, carpenter, Tiler and plumber were also very good. Joanna, Lee and the team in the office were easy to contact and very helpful.We used our own architect who was a little optimistic with the space but Laurence and Bobby were able to explain our options. Extra steel beam being required incurred an additional cost on top of the quotation. Also, the building inspector required work on all the doors in our house to meet fire regulations which also cost extra but these things always happen when doing major building works. As long as you bare this in mind your build should go as well as ours did. I would not hesitate in recommending Lee and his team to my family and friends, in fact I have already recommended them to friends and passers by who have expressed an interest. More...

LMB carried out a loft conversion and I am pleased with the result and would recommend them. The tradespeople LMB use are excellent. All were polite, good at their job, helpful and approachable.
The work started with Brandon and Darren an apprentice building the bulk of the conversion. They were both very good and carried out the work quietly and efficiently with little impact on our daily lives. Brandon was a great communicator and clearly explained each step of the work. We were lucky to have such a helpful and skilled worker.
The next stages involved electricians and plasterers. The plasterers finished a great job in one day and the electricians were accommodating regarding positioning of sockets etc.
Following on from this the roof tilers and bricklayers arrived and worked competently.
The final stage involved Jermaine the carpenter. He is another great worker; friendly, obliging and skilled.
At the end of the project Rob carried out snagging and clearing up- He did a good job.
During the build, LMB are easily contactable and Joanna, Lee and the team do their best to answer questions and sort out any issues.
Although the loft conversion went well there were some aspects that could be improved. The architect’s plans were a little optimistic regarding the use of space, the engineer’s report resulted in an extra steel beam being required that incurred an additional £1500 cost on top of the quotation. Also, the building inspector required work on all the doors in our house to meet fire regulations. I think it is important for clients to examine the architects plans carefully and clarify the position regarding structural beams and fire doors at an early stage.

We recently had a loft conversion carried out by LMB. Lee is a pleasure to deal with and has an excellent team behind him in the office. LMB offered us excellent value for money. All of the builders and tradesmen were punctual, polite and carried out work to a high standard. We changed plans during the works. Lee and his foreman Dave and his team were able to support and guide us through the process. I would not hesitate in recommending Lee and his team to my family and friends. More...

I have used LMB for a L shaped loft conversion compromising of two bedrooms and a shower room. The construction was supposed to take 12 weeks. It has in fact only taken 8 weeks. All tradesmen have completed work to a very high standard. We have used plasters, carpenters, tilers for the roof and bathroom, plumbers and electricians. I would definitely use all of them again. The quote received was a very competitive price. Do be aware that you will incur extra costs for some works and upgrades so it is always good to have a contingency pot. Over all the experience has been good and I am happy with the work completed in my home. More...

LMB carried out the first floor extension of my house. Despite being nervous about complications, I couldn’t have been happier with how they performed. They worked very diligently according to the schedule. They were transparent about any issues that arose and were proactive about providing solutions. They were very responsive to extra requests we made. And most importantly they are close to the timeline we had agreed. So I can thoroughly recommend them. More...

Just had a loft conversion completed by Lee on my house and here is my verdict Customer service Top customer service. Lee provided us with advice and what is best for the build mainly on design and build. Lee would dedicate his time face to face in person.The builders were so relatable and trustworthy. They were clean and tidy up each day. At the end of each day they would catchup with us and show me what was done and next stage. The actual build I am completely more than satisfied with the build. The main structure of the loft was up with the first week. The finished product was vert professional. There were no flaws with the build.PriceWe looked around for other loft companies and LMB was the best offer I got. But it also goes to say that the price depends on size and what you getting done in the build.Gave me a discount which I could not refuse.After service There were few things that were not part of the actual build which I was not aware of and Lee’s builder came round and carried out the job. No questions asked. But he is ready to offer the after service within reasons.All in all food price excellent customer service and last but not least top quality.For those of you looking to get building work carried out I suggest get a quote at least from lee even if your looking elsewhere and I am sure you will not be disappointed.Thanks More...

I’ve just gone through the experience of having a loft conversion and have to say that I couldn’t have wished for a more amazing company to lead the whole project. Every single work person has been so professional and helpful every step of the way. I have found the cost of everything excellent value and very transparent from the very start. When minor things have gone wrong, due to Mother Nature and our wonderful weather, there’s always been someone to come and check that everything is ok at the drop of a hat. I’ve also been lucky enough to have my project finish considerably ahead of time. I would whole heartedly recommend LMB, Lee and every contractor he uses to anyone considering any building works being done to their property. Thank you so much!! I’m really grateful to you all for your hard work, total professionalism and impeccable communication. Angela James More...

So i recently had a loft conversion carried out by LMB. Lee took us through the whole process from planning to construction. Everything was clear and transparent. The actual loft construction was completed on time. Lee and his builders are top notch guys. The builders knew what they were doing and got on with their jobs. The builders were accommodating I cannot fault on the workmanship and quality.Lees team were humble and got on with the job. Trustworthy and reliable.The price for the construction was very good compared to other quotes I have had in the past. So let’s talk about Lee and the after service. We needed to carry out minor fixes. He was contactable instantly, he would get builders on site to have a look at any repair work and would be scheduled in. Response time is very quick. Lee is quick at responding very very quick with any queries. I have no complaints about lee. Very good customer service.All in all top construction company.Mr Miah More...

LMB did a second story extension to a bungalow. After getting several bids from both builders and loft conversion specialists I decided to go with LMB. They were the most professional and worked closely with the architect. They were comfortable with the project and provided a very competitive price. The tradesmen that carried out the project were all extremely competent and professional. The build was on time and whenever any issues arose LMB were quick to respond and resolve. I would highly recommend them to anyone doing either a loft conversion or larger build. More...

I done lot of research and got various quotes before deciding to with Lmb and was glad i did. They were very professional and i couldn't believe i had a whole new room that was ready to move into in 6 weeks. Laurence was great and answered all my questions, of which i had many, mainly because I'm fascinated on the process of works, which probably drove him mad, but he was very patient and had no problem answering them when asked. Lee was also good and came around each week to make sure the works were on schedule and check that i was happy with the progress of works. More...

Really pleased with my loft conversion, and had a positive experience overall. Lee Murphy came out to see us initially and found him friendly and very knowledgeable, and we ended up going with a design that was quite different from what I had imagined, but used the space in a much better way. Work was carried out to a high standard and the guys were friendly - a few issues acme up along the way, as they always do with building work, but everything was resolved quickly and the finished loft is spot on!

I am more than satisfied with the customer service and the end result of my loft. The loft design ideas that they have are really good and it ended up looking better than how I pictured it.

We are extremely happy with our new loft!! The whole project was about 10 weeks and with a baby on the way we wanted to make sure that the whole thing was done and dusted before the new arrival. Lee and the team were great. Rob was in charge of the project from start to finish and he was fantastic, always at hand to answer any queries and issues that we had. A couple of hiccups along the way but that is always expected, and communication could have been slightly better towards the end between the various contractors. I would recommend LMB to anyone who is thinking of having works done to their house and will certainly use them again in the future.Thanks to Lee, Rob and the team!!!! More...

Review update June 2019: Just thought I'd add to the below - 4 years after we'd had our loft done we had a minor issue arise with a window. This was very promptly repaired without hesitation so I thought I'd update this to let people know that as well as a good build experience, we've had a really easy aftercare experience too. Brilliant.We had a superb experience with LMB and given the amount of coordination a loft extension project must involve, it went ahead with very little disruption.They were extremely conscious that the clock was ticking for us as a new baby was imminent and it was 99% finished in 4 weeks!!! This was some 18 months ago now and I have had no reason to contact them to revisit any post extension issues etc, the workmanship was fantastic, and the quality of the different tradesmen that visited our home was superb. indeed, our decorator observed that they were the smoothest walls he had ever painted.Our project manager was our main contact throughout the build. he was brilliant and I really enjoyed working with him. He was accessible when we needed him and visited our home frequently. I felt like I had a new friend at the end of it!So thank you for a lovely new loft and a hassle free experience. More...

From start to finish, we had a very positive experience. There had been some nervousness to start with, considering a loft conversion is a big task to take on. However, Lee and his team had been very helpful throughout the process which put us at ease. Lee explained the whole process very clearly. Rob was the in-charge of site work and his team were professional, flexible while being practical. We were given regular progress updates, work was completed to high standards and within stipulated time.M Baluch More...

We had a loft conversion and rear extension done by LMB and the whole process was worthwhile, it was done to a very good standard of work and was very well organised by Lee and his team, we had the loft done first and then had a weeks break and then the extension got started which to be honest we thought would cause myself and my family a lot of disruption but LMB gave us a temporary set up and they proceeded to work on site every day, the project was completed on time and the workforce were very good and worked incredibly as a team. The office staff were also great. I found by the time we moved back into our new amazing home we had invested our time well and this is a company that I know I can recommend to friends and family and have done so. Thank you so much Lee and all of LMB Group More...

LMB completed our 2 bedroom loft conversion to a high standard. The work started around the 10th March 2019 and was completed on the 25th May, 2019. All the contractors possessed the right skills , customer focused and attention to details. The loft was also done to a high standard of work , work area cleaned and kept to time. The plastering work was a swift job and professional finished, a good team . The plumbing and electrics were completed at different stages but was managed properly and neatly finished. The tiler did a good job, took his time but produce an excellent job. The loft was well finished, there were few disruptions due to bad weather but the contractors were able to plan around this event and complete the roof in a timely way. The contractors involved were great and were ready to get the job done. We have no hesistation in recommending LMB to anyone expanding their home. More...

I had my loft done by LMB, they have done a lot of work in my area. I can see why they are always busy, the value for money was great. The project was done in 8 weeks and the team was very good, they were here everyday and kept me in the loop with progress, We had regular meetings on site by Lee. We felt we wanted to handover to a company who dealt with the design and build.I can see why this company's banners are up as a good local reliable firm. More...

From start to finish, we had a very positive experience. There had been some nervousness to start with, considering a loft conversion is a big task to take on. However, Lee and his team had been very helpful throughout the process which put us at ease. Lee explained the whole process very clearly. Rob was the in-charge of site work and his team were professional, flexible while being practical. We were given regular progress updates, work was completed to high standards and within stipulated time.

Review update June 2019: Just thought I'd add to the below - 4 years after we'd had our loft done we had a minor issue arise with a window. This was very promptly repaired without hesitation so I thought I'd update this to let people know that as well as a good build experience, we've had a really easy aftercare experience too. Brilliant.

We had a superb experience with LMB and given the amount of coordination a loft extension project must involve, it went ahead with very little disruption.

They were extremely conscious that the clock was ticking for us as a new baby was imminent and it was 99% finished in 4 weeks!!! This was some 18 months ago now and I have had no reason to contact them to revisit any post extension issues etc, the workmanship was fantastic, and the quality of the different tradesmen that visited our home was superb. indeed, our decorator observed that they were the smoothest walls he had ever painted.

Our project manager was our main contact throughout the build. he was brilliant and I really enjoyed working with him. He was accessible when we needed him and visited our home frequently. I felt like I had a new friend at the end of it!

So thank you for a lovely new loft and a hassle free experience.

We are extremely happy with our new loft!! The whole project was about 10 weeks and with a baby on the way we wanted to make sure that the whole thing was done and dusted before the new arrival. Lee and the team were great. Rob was in charge of the project from start to finish and he was fantastic, always at hand to answer any queries and issues that we had. A couple of hiccups along the way but that is always expected, and communication could have been slightly better towards the end between the various contractors.

I would recommend LMB to anyone who is thinking of having works done to their house and will certainly use them again in the future.

Thanks to Lee, Rob and the team!!!!

Lmb are a very good company. The final results are excellent though one may have to be patient to get there.
It was our first experience of a major building extension or work so parts of the plans had to be changed and remodelled along the lines.
The results were fantastic and our friends and families loved the final outcome
Thank you Lee. We’d use you again and gladly recommend your company

LMB completed our loft conversion with a high standard. The contractors possessed the right skills. Brandon was a professional builder to the core, he possessed good communication skills , customer focused and attention to details. Brandon tidy up his work space at the end of each day before he leaves and updated us on progress made . The carpentry work was completed by Jermaine , was also done to a high standard of work , tidy up work area and kept to time. The plastering work was a swift job and professional finished, a good team . The plumbing and electrics were completed at different stages but was managed properly and neatly finished. The tiler did a good job, took his time but produce an excellent job.
The loft was well finished, there were few interruptions due to the weather but the roofers were able to plan around this and complete the roof in a timely way. There were few disruptions within the house during the constructions but each contractor created time to explain their plans before work commenced and worked around our timetable. In conclusion, the staff at the office attended to our concerns and they were actioned within a specified time frame.
We have no hesistation in recommending LMB to anyone expanding their home.

LOFT CONVERSION Mid December 18 finished March 19.Far less hassle than we anticipated with an outcome way above our expectations. Our house is a mid-terrace in Addiscombe and we now have a 2nd floor with:2 light airy double bedroomsShower room Walk in wardrobe accessible from landingAND a home office space.There are small doors into the front under eaves from the bedroom and from the walk in wardrobe providing lots of storage …not an inch of wasted space. Brandon who built our loft was a very good communicator, had ideas along the way e.g. The home office space and other minor tweaks which he always discussed with us first. A few weeks into the build there was a dreadful storm on a Sat night and Brandon arrived to check all was well on the Sunday…above and beyond I would say.Rob seemed to respond to the urgent matters in a calm and pleasant manner. He is clearly appreciated as whoever was on site seemed pleased to see him whenever he arrived.The way the tradesmen fit in with each other’s timetables amazed me. I know Lee has an overview of the various stages of work but I think there must be a lot of good will among the different trades for it to knit together as it did. Matt and his plumbers had to complete 3 different stages with electricians working in between for example. There was no disturbance inside our house until the stairs went in and the plastering, which was the most "messy" part of the job, only took a few days.Agim and his plasterers were artists. As well as producing conventional smooth walls they converted the wire and brick spaces under the new stairs into a smooth beautiful sweeping curve. I love that and have painted it deep yellow.When plaster was dry and it was time for the 2nd fix I was thinking oh dear sawdust but Jermain was tidy and very easy to have about the house so it was not bad at all.He paid attention to detail and his finished work looks great.Over all the tradesmen were verbally appreciative of each other’s work not just to me but to each other. ..and any issues between them were openly dealt with quickly.We have a lovely well finished loft and I have no hesitation in recommending LMB..

I done a lot of research as I wanted to do a 2 story side extension and wrap around the back, all the quotes varied, my brother has used LMB a couple of times and said that he found them to be very professional, he was so right the owner Lee gave us so much good advice and what would be the best option, the works commenced and from the ground workers all the way to the roofers worked with myself and my young family, I could not believe the can do attitude throughout, as most do we decided to change a couple of things, once finished Lee done a final visit to make sure all was ok and that we was happy, I think the personal touch always helps when doing major alterations, I would highly recommend LMB and would definitely use them again in the future.

Great big thanks to Lee and LMB team for our wonderful loft!!!

As a mum I was very nervous to take on the project of loft conversion, however Lee & Joanna and all the staff made us feel very comfortable and were very reassuring throughout the process. The workmen were so polite and considerate and treated our home with respect. They never left the site till every tool, nail and sharp object was carefully removed. They accommodated all our requests to work around our kids needs.

The attention to detail throughout the project was fabulous and we really appreciated that Lee personally comes around to check every phase of the build . Cost wise we were impressed that there were no hidden surprises everything was very upfront.

Can't believe I have got such a lovely space upstairs we are all fighting over it.

Second times a charm!

Having previously had an extension built by Lee and his team, some 10 years ago I was delighted to see the expansion of the company and asked them to quite for our loft conversion. This was by no means a forgone conclusion and I asked a further two reputable companies to quote too, but the build 10 years ago was a huge success so it would be fair to say LMB were the favourites!

Having read a lot of reviews on LMB and the other companies asked to quote, I noted that there was a very similar trend, mainly good to great reviews with the odd negative posting. My advice to anyone looking to spend what will always be a considerable sum of money is to go with your gut, I was made to feel at ease by Lee 10 years ago and again on this occasion and offered the contract to LMB.

I am delighted I did!

On day one of the project, Lee convened a meeting with ourselves and the builders so we could set the ‘ground rules’! I am a firm believer in building relationships and therefore made it clear to all builders on site that if they treated my home like theirs, we would have no issues and I am delighted to say we had no problems there! Common courtesy and decency has to be a must when you have what are strangers in your house when you aren’t and I can’t fault any of Lee’s team on this front. The house was clean every day with the only real noticeable difference when the ceiling came down for the stairs and once the plastering had been done, other than that they all had their own hoovers and cleaned up brilliantly every day.

The pace of the build is immense, scaffolding up, roof off, dormer built, plasterboarded and plastered etc etc, I’m not ashamed to admit it caught me by surprise, but these are surprises you are happy to receive!

The two builders we had that did the main build, Olly and Lee were superb and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough, very attentive, always checking in to make sure we were happy and always on time. We had our loft built during the snowfall, which resulted in a slight delay but also water ingress, a quick call to Lee on a Saturday evening at 8pm and within 30 minutes one of the lads was around to secure the issue, completely unavoidable and due to melting snow, but the message it did send was that LMB really care about their clients and that wasn’t the only time help was needed ‘out of hours’ and was sorted very quickly.

If I could offer one piece of advice it would be to try and make sure you speak to the different trades as they arrive. A couple of small problems we encountered were that we had bought a specific radiator which we had failed to communicate and the original light fittings were not as we expected, both unavoidable with better communication but my fault as much as anyone else’s, and in any case sorted following a quick telephone call with Lee!

The finish of the build is absolutely brilliant, you never really know what to expect but I hadn’t envisaged what we have ended up with! We are lucky in the the pitch of our roof is high so we have a loft room with almost a normal ceiling height, this was totally unexpected but both Lee and the architect mentioned to me on day one of the process they could get a great height for us and they delivered!

One of my initial concerns was the sheer number of different tradesmen flip flopping between each other and how this would work in reality but all of them were managed superbly by Lee and his staff in the office and I was kept fully up to date with who would be on site and when, builders, plumbers, electricians, plasterers, tiler, Roofer’s all working together to deliver the final product.

I have to give a special mention to both the Paul’s on the build, the tiler and roofer. Both are incredible and their strife for perfection in what they do is something to behold!

All in all, we are absolutely ecstatic with the whole process and have no hesitation in recommending LMB so a huge thank you to everyone involved and to Lee and the staff in the office for their attention to detail, it’s been a pleasure!

When my wife and I decided to hire LMB to turn the our loft into an extra space to live in, we were initially overwhelmed by the prospect. After all, you don't remove your roof and have builders working in your own personal environment everyday. Luckily, we were reassured by Lee Murphy, the Managing Director, during our initial meeting. He gave us a specific time frame, made clear the costs involved and the payment schedule, not to mention telling us important and relevant information that would help us later. He also answered our questions truthfully and made sure we were happy with everything before proceeding. His advice was invaluable.
From start to finish the process took a little over three months. His team were on time everyday, very pleasant and worked extremely hard. There was never a shortage of materials being delivered and whenever we had any issues, the men on site were happy to discuss them with us and assist in any problem solving. The work was completed to a very high standard and my wife and I are extremely pleased with the final product. The space is now luxurious and welcoming and no longer a place where we keep things in boxes. Since finishing the work, friends of ours have commented on our new large one bedroom with an ensuite bathroom as being like a "hotel room" and we haven't even finished decorating it yet!!!
I am sure that by investing in our home we have handsomely added to our property value if we ever choose to sell it.
I would happily recommend LMB to anyone who is thinking about undertaking such a project. Thanks again LMB.

Delighted with our L shaped dormer loft conversion. We went with LMB because they were a local firm and their quote was competitive. We went to see a nearby job they had completed, the work looked good and the customers happy.

We were very happy with the design layout and felt the architect did a good job making the best possible use of the space available. Dean and the onsite team were also excellant and happy to make minor adjustments where necessary, this really helped ensure we got the end product we were after.

The build itself was quick and efficient and carried out to a good standard. It took a bit of chasing to get the snagging completed and joanna was very helpful with this.

We would recommend LMB.

Of course in the beginning there’s a little apprehension but that soon disappears when you become aware of the high level of workers put in place. Big mention to Brandon, who is the 1st Carpenter/project manager.. was exceptional, showing quality and skill. His apprentice Darren was also impressive & hard working. Many of the tradesmen, Stephen & his team from SGE services (electrics) were also brilliant, so was Eddie the tiler, Savi the plasterer and Matt the plumbers. Front office with all her girls is Joanna, customer service is outstanding! so if your thinking about making that call, then don’t hesitate! LMB will not disappoint!! More...

I am absolutely delighted with my loft conversion from LMB.
From start to finish, everything went smoothly. There were different workmen looking after each phase of the project and they were all highly qualified, experienced, hardworking and courteous. They didn't take loads of tea breaks and they always tidied up meticulously after themselves. LMB managed my expectations about how long it would all take, and the time passed quickly - I think they probably completed everything ahead of time. The quality of the work was excellent, and people consulted with me regularly on the finer details - from the original design plans right down to where I wanted spotlights, plug points and light switches! I LOVE my new loft space... LMB have created a spacious master bedroom and en-suite, transforming my home to a 4 bedroom 2 bathroom property, which will have increased its value well over and above the money I spent having the work done! It was definitely a smart investment to make use of my loft space. I would thoroughly recommend LMB to everyone! More...

My wife and I were looking to move home as we were out growing our 2 bed end of terrace property but found moving further afield unaffordable.

We actually like the South Croydon area and toyed with the idea of an extension to our house until a Friend of ours mentioned he was having a loft conversion. On Viewing this spacious luxurious looking Dorma with en-suite bathroom and walk in wardrobe all to a high quality we we're immediately sold on the idea of a loft conversion.
Several quotes were taken including LMB and we found them to be the most competitive and at a most respectable price.

The Managing Director Mr Lee Murphy we found to be a very affable Gentlemen putting our needs and what we wanted first. Several drawings were done to accommodate a bath in the loft! and with Mr Murphy's expertise and knowledge working together with a fantastic and patience team of employees the loft was completed to a very high standard and good quality workmanship.
We have been mightily impressed and so thankful for LMB and in particularly Mr Lee Murphy.

Thank you

In particular, Lee's team managed to integrate the staircase with the house, so it looks 'right' and the loft and eaves access, which were included in the quote are tidy have maintained much needed storage space. I would recommend LMB. More...

The jobs are completed to a high quality and spec and Lee takes great pride in his work and company. Fantastic, professional, organized and punctual. More...

We were extremely happy with the final result of the loft conversion. Lee's Architect designed the loft in such a way that it flowed from the rest of the house and maximized the space in the loft. Lee uses only quality trades people and the end result was fantastic. More...

Second times a charm! Having previously had an extension built by Lee and his team, some 10 years ago I was delighted to see the expansion of the company and asked them to quite for our loft conversion. This was by no means a forgone conclusion and I asked a further two reputable companies to quote too, but the build 10 years ago was a huge success so it would be fair to say LMB were the favourites! Having read a lot of reviews on LMB and the other companies asked to quote, I noted that there was a very similar trend, mainly good to great reviews with the odd negative posting. My advice to anyone looking to spend what will always be a considerable sum of money is to go with your gut, I was made to feel at ease by Lee 10 years ago and again on this occasion and offered the contract to LMB. I am delighted I did! On day one of the project, Lee convened a meeting with ourselves and the builders so we could set the ‘ground rules’! I am a firm believer in building relationships and therefore made it clear to all builders on site that if they treated my home like theirs, we would have no issues and I am delighted to say we had no problems there! Common courtesy and decency has to be a must when you have what are strangers in your house when you aren’t and I can’t fault any of Lee’s team on this front. The house was clean every day with the only real noticeable difference when the ceiling came down for the stairs and once the plastering had been done, other than that they all had their own hoovers and cleaned up brilliantly every day.The pace of the build is immense, scaffolding up, roof off, dormer built, plasterboarded and plastered etc etc, I’m not ashamed to admit it caught me by surprise, but these are surprises you are happy to receive!The two builders we had that did the main build, Olly and Lee were superb and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough, very attentive, always checking in to make sure we were happy and always on time. We had our loft built during the snowfall, which resulted in a slight delay but also water ingress, a quick call to Lee on a Saturday evening at 8pm and within 30 minutes one of the lads was around to secure the issue, completely unavoidable and due to melting snow, but the message it did send was that LMB really care about their clients and that wasn’t the only time help was needed ‘out of hours’ and was sorted very quickly. If I could offer one piece of advice it would be to try and make sure you speak to the different trades as they arrive. A couple of small problems we encountered were that we had bought a specific radiator which we had failed to communicate and the original light fittings were not as we expected, both unavoidable with better communication but my fault as much as anyone else’s, and in any case sorted following a quick telephone call with Lee! The finish of the build is absolutely brilliant, you never really know what to expect but I hadn’t envisaged what we have ended up with! We are lucky in the the pitch of our roof is high so we have a loft room with almost a normal ceiling height, this was totally unexpected but both Lee and the architect mentioned to me on day one of the process they could get a great height for us and they delivered! One of my initial concerns was the sheer number of different tradesmen flip flopping between each other and how this would work in reality but all of them were managed superbly by Lee and his staff in the office and I was kept fully up to date with who would be on site and when, builders, plumbers, electricians, plasterers, tiler, Roofer’s all working together to deliver the final product.I have to give a special mention to both the Paul’s on the build, the tiler and roofer. Both are incredible and their strife for perfection in what they do is something to behold! All in all, we are absolutely ecstatic with the whole process and have no hesitation in recommending LMB so a huge thank you to everyone involved and to Lee and the staff in the office for their attention to detail, it’s been a pleasure!

My husband and I have been so impressed with this company. Nothing is ever too much trouble! Our new loft conversion was built to a very high specification thanks to Dave’s team (contractor) and also lee for project managing. All of the contractors were helpful and were also very good and experienced tradesmen. All the snagging was done quickly and efficiently leaving us with the perfect loft conversion. I would highly recommend this company. Thank you :) More...

Our loft is wonderful - thank you LMB. The build work was done to a very high standard thanks to Laurence and his team who were very knowledgable. All tradesmen were polite and friendly, which was really important to us as we had a toddler at home most days. In fact our little boy even knew all their names and enjoyed chatting to them. Joanna managed the project superbly for us. We would recommend LBM based on the finished result. We did have some delays and concerns at the start but Joanna ensured everything ran smoothly as soon as we voiced these. The project did run over time-wise but came in exactly on budget as quoted and we are very happy.

Overall we were very pleased with the work carried out by LMB. Like most large projects, there were issues, however, LMB were quick to rectify these. All Tradesmen were professional, courteous and efficient, especially the builders, roofers and plasterers. The work took a little longer then expected, but was to a high standard. Having a Loft conversion has made such a difference in space, but also added value to our property. We would not hesitate in recommending LMB. More...

When my wife and I decided to hire LMB to turn the our loft into an extra space to live in, we were initially overwhelmed by the prospect. After all, you don't remove your roof and have builders working in your own personal environment everyday. Luckily, we were reassured by Lee Murphy, the Managing Director, during our initial meeting. He gave us a specific time frame, made clear the costs involved and the payment schedule, not to mention telling us important and relevant information that would help us later. He also answered our questions truthfully and made sure we were happy with everything before proceeding. His advice was invaluable.
From start to finish the process took a little over three months. His team were on time everyday, very pleasant and worked extremely hard. There was never a shortage of materials being delivered and whenever we had any issues, the men on site were happy to discuss them with us and assist in any problem solving.
The work was completed to a very high standard and my wife and I are extremely pleased with the final product. The space is now luxurious and welcoming and no longer a place where we keep things in boxes. Since finishing the work, friends of ours have commented on our new large one bedroom with an ensuite bathroom as being like a "hotel room" and we haven't even finished decorating it yet!!!
I am sure that by investing in our home we have handsomely added to our property value if we ever choose to sell it.
I would happily recommend LMB to anyone who is thinking about undertaking such a project. Thanks again LMB.

Our loft is amazing! It is even bigger than we thought it would be and the work was done to the best possible standard. All of the builders were friendly, reliable and top in their trade from the builders to the painters to the tiler and plumber. I'd say they were also all perfectionists as their attention to detail was spot on and the painter in particular insisted the room was flawless. The price was good too especially considering we got a lot more for our money as expected the room to be a lot smaller. More...

LMB have just recently completed our L Shaped Dormer loft conversion with 1 bedroom and en-suite, and below is an honest review of our experience of LMB. We had relatively low head height in our existing loft space, just under 2.3meters, and some of the companies we had come out did not want to undertake the work due to the existing head height, they said they would not undertake unless the head height was at least 2.4 / 2.5 meters.LMB were one of the cheapest quotes we received and assured us that they could undertake the work and ensure we had regulation head height over 2m in the finished conversion. We decided to go with LMB because of their confidence and also they are one of the few firms we found that actually have a walk in shop so we knew any concerns we had during the project we could easily get in contact with them. They have also converted a number of lofts in our road and local area and the people we spoke to did recommend them.The work is now completed and we are really pleased with the finished result and have had many comments on how our house has now been transformed and the new layout / use of space is fantastic. The work did take longer than expected, we were initially quoted between 10 and 12 weeks but it took around 15 or 16 weeks in the end, however there were a few complications found during the conversion which resulted in the work overrunning, and we can’t blame LMB for this, we have an old pre-1900’s house and during the build some things were found not to be level which complicated the first fix build, also the low head height meant that it took longer to install the new joists due them being lowered to get the desired head height. Even though the work did overrun slightly and complications were found, LMB never charged us anymore than the contracted price which I thought was really good as I’m sure some companies would have used this opportunity to get more money out of us.A loft conversion requires so many trades coming to your house, first fix builders, electricians, roofers, plumbers, plasterers, bathroom tilers, and all of the trades LMB sent were polite, trustworthy, competent and did a really good job.We did have a problem with the flat roof after the build was complete, water was finding its way off the side of roof in one spot and running down brickwork on the outside wall, even though our loft conversion started in January we had hardly any rain during the build so the problem was not spotted until the first period of sustained rainfall. So again this was one of those things, the problem could not have been foreseen during the build, and we know many people who have had issues with their new flat roofs completed by various companies, that’s just the nature of flat roofs. LMB sent the roofer over promptly when we reported it and they fixed the issue that day which we found very re-assuring as we had paid all of the money to LMB and this gave me a lot of confidence that they honour their guarantee and do not ignore you once the build is complete. I’m not going to pretend everything was perfect during the build, hence the 4 stars, and to be honest I wasn’t expecting it to be perfect, and LMB could improve on some things like communication on when trades are arriving, payment requests, and project management visits, but overall I would highly recommend LMB, the finished result is a great loft conversion with building regulation approval and a 10 year guarantee.I am someone who wants to share honest up to date experiences, so if my experience of LMB changes, so will this review, so what you are reading now is my experience to date and should be taken as an up to date review.Anyone looking to have a loft conversion which is fully managed by the building contractor with and hassle free experience and competent trades completing the work, I would certainly recommend LMB.

My wife and I were looking to move home as we were out growing our 2 bed end of terrace property but found moving further afield unaffordable.

We actually like the South Croydon area and toyed with the idea of an extention to our house until a Friend of ours mentioned he was having a loft conversion. On Viewing this spacious luxurious looking Dorma with en suite bathroom and walk in wardrobe all to a high quality we we're immediately sold on the idea of a loft conversion.
Serveral quotes were taken including LMB and we found them to be the most competitive and at a most respectable price.
.
The Managing Director Mr Lee Murphy we found to be a very affable Gentlemen putting our needs and what we wanted first. Several drawings were done to accommodate a bath in the loft! and with Mr Murphy's expertise and knowledge working together with a fantastic and patience team of employees the loft was completed to a very high standard and good quality workmanship.
We have been mightily impressed and so thankful for LMB and in particularly Mr Lee Murphy.

Thank you

LMB recently completed our 1 room loft conversion with ensuite. We are so pleased with the final result! From beginning to end, the staff were friendly, attentive, considerate to our neighbours and very hard working. The attention to detail and quality of their work is excellent. Our loft looks amazing! The finishing touches provided by the team have made a real difference and the new floor flows really well with the rest of the house. We have had so many compliments from our friends and neighbours and would happily recommend LMB to anyone who is considering this type of renovation. More...

Having decided upon a loft conversion we researched three companies in our area including LMB. When Lee the owner came on his initial visit he informed us that he had converted two lofts in our road. After viewing them we were convinced we would be choosing the best company, as they were both finished to a high standard.

We are very happy with the extra space it has provided and will enjoy many hours in our new bedroom including an En-suite. We upgraded from French doors to Bi-folds and Metal Juliet balcony to glass, Lee was helpful in assisting in our decision-making.
We had a couple of issues, but these were quickly and amicably resolved to our satisfaction. Although we are not architects we were able to draw accurate plans of the layout, we are pleased that the finished room was exactly as imagined. All the tradespeople were efficient, friendly and respectful of our home.

We are extremely happy with the final result therefore have no hesitation in recommending LMB.

We recently had a loft conversion and additional building work done by LMB. We are very pleased with the finished loft we now have two rooms and an extra toilet and it was completed very quickly. The initial build was very quick and we were impressed with the fact that we had a floor and skeleton outlines of the rooms and stairs within a week. Lee managed the job courteously and asked our opinion at every step of the way and all the tradesman he used were of high quality, particularly the carpenters and the painter and decorator. Their experience in this kind of build was obvious due to the efficacy of the whole process.All of LMB’s staff were polite and got on with their work without disturbing us - which was particularly good as my husband works from home and he was in the house when much of the work was taking place. They always left the house tidy when they left. The work is of a high standard and the office ensured that the whole process was painless, informing us in good time that we needed to play fees and keeping us informed as to what was happening. LMB also removed two chimney breasts which took place while we were away. Again LMB worked quickly and efficiently to complete the job and we are delighted with the way they have transformed our house. More...

LMB carried out a superb conversion to our 1950's 2 bed detached bungalow. We now have an upstairs! consisting of a huge master bedroom with en-suite, an office and storage areas. LMB workmanship is second to none, their workmen were always very polite, considerate and LMB completed on time, with no (additional) surprises! Their electrical and plumbing contractors were also very cooperative - in designing and upgrading the old systems and incorporating new circuits and outlets etc. Without any hesitation, we would recommend LMB Loft Conversions Ltd.

They were neat, pleasant and competent workmen and at the end of each day saw to it that our loft was well covered so as not to be exposed to the wind and rain. They were very also very helpful and trustworthy especially as we had to leave them to lock up while we visied my mum who was very ill in hospital. When she passed away they stopped their work for that day as a mark of respect and this we greatly appreciated.We wish LMB all the best in the future. Mr and Mrs, G.B.Wilson More...

A fantastic job,the quality of workmanship, including, carpentry, plastering and plumbing are of a very high standard. It is so easy to get ripped off in this market but LMB are a safe pair of handsHighly recommended More...
