Review of Upkeep contractors by jenny Nolan

Just a quick review to say thankyou so much for all your hard work on our extension. It had a terrible leak from the roof that caused many years of mold, damp and pure trouble. However the work carried out by Upkeep was quick, well priced, very proffessional. The cheapest quote we received. The roof is totally water tight and looks really tidy. Thankyou so much it is really appreciated.

I'm very embarrassed to admit that I was badly ripped off by a tradesman who is now registered on 'mybuilder'. Thankfully Upkeep Contractors was recommended to me and I cannot speak highly enough of David. He knows his trade inside out and has very high standards for his work - and will not leave a customer dissatisfied. He has corrected the sub-standard work which was done without any care or consideration by the previous tradesman and has gone above and beyond what I could have expected. I have no hesitation in recommending David and his company Upkeep Contractors. If you want a guaranteed job you can trust, by an honest and hardworking tradesman call David. He has fixed and renewed a roof, fixed what should have been a new cavity wall, fixed and refitted a new kitchen, fitted out a shower room, laid tiled flooring in bathroom and kitchen, provided storage cupboards, fitted lintels above windows, plastering, repositioned a doorway etc etc.

I will be contacting David again as the front and back gardens need to be done - clearing/paving and lawn laid. I wouldn't take a chance on anyone else.

Thank you David

How can someone tell if their Garage is suitable for conversion?

You need a 2.2 head height minimum the best way to get 100% accurate advice is to get a survey done to give you a list of the works to make it suitable to live in.

Run us through the different stages of the Garage conversion process - what's involved?

First you need to get a change of use application. Then you can install windows, more insulation to bring the u value up to spec, possibly a new roof or add a sky light, a new door, a new floor, reinforced foundations, electrics and plumbing, plastering, painting.
