Problems with our roof
Customer Service
Quality
Value
Karl did a building project for us several years ago which included a complete rebuild of our entire roof with brand new tiles. Unfortunately he failed to follow manufacturers guidelines on maximum spacing of the roof tiles, leaving the roof with 20% less tiles than the recommended minimum. This has left us with problems with our roof which we have had to have addressed at a large cost to us. He has not been willing to offer any form of recompense for his mistake, nor been willing to offer an explanation as to whether this was intentional or an oversight. Two separate professional roofing companies who have worked on the roof during other extension works to our house independently identified the mistake and stated that it is not common practice to tile as such, and I have also verified the information on tile spacing with the manufacturer directly. The only reason I haven't left the minimum rating is because the sub-contractors K Design and Build used for groundwork and brickwork were fortunately of a high quality.

The trader replied (on 29/10/2018)
K Design & Build received a complaint with instant request for financial reimbursement from Mr and Mrs Lloyd over an alleged fault with work that was undertaken 7 years ago. We responded to Mr & Mrs Lloyds request of financial reimbursement appropriately, we informed the client that if there were problems with work undertaken that we would need to be notified about this at the time of the problem so we could them look to start the process of a site survey where a full evaluation of the assumed fault could be made. A full survey and report would have been provided and we would look to then remedy at our own costs if there was a genuine claim. The client persisted with the claim for a lower financial reimbursement over email and an apology for the faulty works, K Design & Build responded accordingly; we would not reimburse any financial claim or apologise without the process as previously stated has been followed. The client responded with again the intent of a full reimbursement and further threats. The review that has been left is the result of a client trying to claim financial reimbursement without following the guidelines required for a valid claim, however simply on the say so of themselves and deciding to pay for additional work done without consultation with K Design and Build.
Large single storey extension and additions

The project involved the demolition of two conservatories, and a single storey extension that involved some structural work and underfloor heating. The project was increased to include a garage extension and other additions. The project started and finished later than planned, though this was not a major issue. The most impressive aspect of the K Design and Build team was the can-do attitude and the work done to overcome any issues. Karl has available to his business some very good people with good skills. The majority of the workmanship is very good and the final extension is a delight to live in. All conversations with Karl were positive and he responded to any requests and feedback accordingly. After seeking several quotations, and understanding some of the risks surrounding the building industry, I have no hesitation in posting a positive review of K Design and Build Ltd.

Single story extension

We'd decided to get rid of our old conservatory and replace it with an extension to add ground floor space to an existing dining room. Karl and team did a fantastic job building our this extension over the last 3 months. Though his quotation wasn't the lowest, we were quickly convinced by his professional response to our request and by his enthusiasm about the project (and building in general). He has gathered a great team around him - always polite and helpful with advice. They left the site clean at all times and the final result is stunning work at top quality, completed even slightly below budget. The only reason he's not getting full 15 stars overall is a (very) slight schedule overrun, but that wouldn't stop me for a second to recommend K Design & Build services to anyone. Great company!

K Design & Build built my dream kitchen and extension that I have always wanted. Their help and advice before and during the work was extremely helpful to insure the design was perfect. We were impressed with Karl's professionalism and his ability to create our vision. We are so happy with all the work K Design & build Ltd have undertaken and we would happily recommend them on to friends & family.

Thank you to Karl & his Team for the excellent job in transforming what was a dated kitchen and utility room into a modern functional Kitchen living space which is now the centre of our home. Top quality workmanship, well managed project. Clear quotation, which whilst not the lowest, was delivered on time and with excellent finish. Karl's carpentry skills are excellent and he has a particular attention to detail. We have no hesitation in recommending Karl & have since used him for other project

When we moved house we saw Karl was working on a neighbour's who seemed pleased with his work so we asked for a quote to compare with another builder we knew. Though his quote was slightly more expensive (~£1.5k) we decided we felt more comfortable with Karl than the other guy and we delighted with the decision. Karl's carpentry is brilliant , his ideas were great especially when our Victorian house made things challenging, site was kept tidy and budget was met. Good guy and highly recommended.
