Mr Roper, Teddington
The client wanted to completely transform the property including a loft conversion, ground floor extension and structural alterations, and renovate the property throughout. The key note from the brief was to keep all the new additions matching the existing house. We built the loft conversion first adding a huge master bedroom with en-suite and large Velux’s filling the room with natural light. As soon as the scaffolding was down, we started work on the rear extension. Again, substantial steels were needed to hold up the back of the house, internal walls were removed as well as the entire suspended floor ready for the new concrete floor and 1st fixing. Three large Velux’s were installed with a wide set of bi-folds allowing loads of natural light to stream in. We laid an oak engineered floor throughout downstairs as well as fitting a new contemporary kitchen. The latest LEDs were installed as well as LED strip lighting above and below the kitchen units. We renovated the 1st floor including a new bathroom after removing an internal wall and chimney breast. Matching the new stairs to the existing stairs made a seamless transition between the new part of the house and the new. The end result was a lovely extended house in the heart of Teddington adding value as well as keeping it looking as original as possible, which the client was delighted with.
As we would not be living at our property we needed a builder that we could trust completely and who was excellent at communicating. We were recommended Andy Stevens of Eclipse Property Solutions and he did not disappoint in either respect. Furthermore their work was finished to an exceptionally high standard, making the house seem like new, whilst still retaining its character. Everyone working on the project was local and clearly knew what they were doing, producing high quality work with the minimum of fuss. They were also very friendly, offering us a cuppa on our occasional visits, and keen to chat about the job.
Being new to this sort of thing we relied heavily on Andy’s network of suppliers, who gave us first rate service and top quality products at competitive prices. As a result we have a beautiful house that we love and have every confidence that it will still be standing in many years!
We got weekly emails from Andy giving full details of the progress of the work and the plan for the following week. We were also given enough time to choose the fixtures and fittings.
To give you some idea of the level of service we received, during one of our visits in the evening we noticed a leak. I phoned Andy and he was round like a shot to sort it out, despite the late hour.
In every respect Eclipse delivered and we couldn’t be more pleased with the service and the end result. Everyone who has seen our house is so impressed with the work done.
We would not hesitate to use Eclipse again in the future, and can not recommend them highly enough to anyone thinking of having work done on their house.
