Employ only if ready for lots of hassle
If you want the hassle of a builder who does not build according to the approved plans, upsets the neighbours with repeated trespass and is foul-mouthed to boot, this is just the company for you. Employed by my neighbour to build an extension approved by the council's planning department, no objections having been received, this company relied on my goodwill to use my property to access the rear of the house. There was no initial control of workmen who arrived to start work noisily at 7.30 am, contrary to council regulations. An 8 am start was gradually enforced after complaints, but later in the process work often continued through Saturday afternoon, again contrary to council regulations. The builder went off-plan. Either out of ignorance or disingenuousness, he denied that the new structure would need planning permission. But it did indeed require approval by the council, causing his employer extra expense for new plans. When I withdrew permission to use my land for access pending official approval of the new structure he retorted: I am sure it will be interesting when you attempt to levy trespass against us? He continued to ignore the instruction and did nothing to stop his men trespassing on my land for weeks thereafter. For trying to ensure that normal regulations and the law were observed I was "a complete idiot", "bullying and antisocial", and further expressions too foul to record in this review. Employ at your peril!

Initially we went to SLBC for a basement conversion, the experience was great right from the start. Firstly I had meeting with the directors of the company who took me through every aspect of the build, methods used, materials and hardware, costings and final outcome. They were very open and knowledgeable about any restrictions we may have, legal or physical. When the build was started we went in feeling very comfortable, the crew were great and they had a senior member of the team on site at all times. The basement conversion went smoothly and SLBC made sure they hit every time target they'd discussed with us. In the later stages of the basement conversion we decided we'd like to have the upstairs completely re-done as well, the guys were able to allocate hands to the demolition and rebuild within a matter of days while still completing the basement. They worked very well with my other tradesmen(plumbers) and supplied their own electricians and plasterers to get the whole project to a finished state before we moved back in. Everything but the brick was replaced on my property and I'm extremely happy with the final outcome. I'd give a full recommendation to SLBC as they're a truly professional company who have high standards, work long hours and price well.

Both teams were great and a pleasure to have around. The work was finished to a high standard. It took a little longer than we hoped but overall I would certainly use them again. They also dealt happily with me changing my mind last minute about some finishing touches!
