Convert loft to your favourite room in the house...........

You at Saxon John Brown were the most professional loft builder we approached and this was maintained throughout the design and build phases. We wanted an organisation that would take care of everything – and that’s precisely what we got. There are so many Victorian properties in Cambridge like ours - we just hadn’t realised the potential that was just above our heads!

We knew you had built loft conversions close by and once we asked you to pop in and have a look you made the whole process so easy. We now have a beautiful bedroom with en-suite shower room on the second floor. It was intended to be reserved for guests but it quickly became the favourite room of the house, so we’ve turned it into the master bedroom.

The great bonus from all of this – one of us now works from home in the spare room. And we are so lucky thanks to your clever design – you suggested installing French doors in the new dormer overlooking the university playing field – how nice it is watching a game of cricket on a peaceful summer’s day.We certainly recommend inviting Saxon John Brown to make the attic a “loft conversion Cambridge”.

Careful loft conversion planning can provide amazing extra space ......

I just wanted to thank you for our superb loft conversion. We are amazed at how much space we have and the boys are thrilled with their new bedrooms and bathroom.

The project was run extremely professionally and your staff worked hard to minimise any disruption. All in all a very positive experience and we are all delighted with the end result.

Don’t move – consider a loft conversion ....

As you know, we had lived in our house for ten years. With the children growing up, we realised the property was no longer big enough. We began looking to move to a bigger house and then one of our friends recommended that we should speak to Saxon John Brown about the possibility of converting the loft.

When one of your designers first visited us, it quickly became apparent that our roof was not suitable to convert easily but luckily it did not end there. Your idea of literally “raising the roof” seemed to be a massive upheaval but in fact everything worked out brilliantly and we now have 2 new rooms plus an extra bathroom – all for half the price it would have cost us to move to a property of the equivalent size. The bonus to us is the children can remain in their school.

You at Saxon John Brown took care of everything and your staff were very helpful throughout – all we had to do was choose the colour to paint the walls and put in the new furniture. We should have spoken to you years ago!

An impressive loft builder service all the way through ......

We want to take this opportunity to make clear how impressed we have been with your service, from the initial telephone enquiry, through site visits, work in progress, to completion.

Every member of your team, including the contractors used for certain elements of our loft conversion, have each done a first rate job. Everyone has been pleasant and professional, turned up when they said they would and each have completed work to the highest of standards.

Saxon John Brown was not the cheapest quote we had for the loft conversion but the professionalism and willingness to do a good job – especially reflected in the pride taken by those who worked on site – was worth it.

We would have no hesitation in recommending your loft conversion company and offer our sincere thanks for a job well done.

Experience counts with loft conversion companies ......

I would like to take this opportunity to say how pleased we are with the loft conversion. I would like to thank all of the people involved in the project. Everyone that worked here and all the people I came into contact with – either in person or on the phone, made a huge effort to make sure that things ran smoothly.

I particularly mention your site staff who worked extremely hard and put in long hours to ensure the loft conversion was completed as soon as possible. I was impressed with their punctuality, how well they cleared up and the quality of their workmanship.

It was a very difficult time for us to have work done as we were expecting the arrival of a baby at any point! Also, with a very shy 3 year old, things could have been disruptive. But your staff made the experience as enjoyable as it possibly could have been and made a huge effort with my daughter, which we are very grateful for. I’m not sure if builders get told this often but it truly was a pleasure having you work here!

We would not hesitate to recommend your Company to anyone considering having a conversion and indeed we already have. Before I made the decision to use your Company, I went to see a loft conversion that you had completed. I found this very useful and would be happy for people to come and see ours.

A loft conversion is the way to go....

After living in our mid terraced house for over eight years, we have truly fallen in love with it and the area that it sits in. Our neighbours are the best you could ever ask for; we have looked at larger properties over the years but have never found one that ticks all the right boxes. So expansion was the only option for us and after hearing the catching jingle on Heart Radio a number of times, it was time to give Saxon John Brown a call about the possibility of converting our loft.

From the initial contact with Saxon’s there was total professionalism from the start to finish. The two guys Jason and Simon that worked on our conversion are a true credit to the company and ensured that everything went as smooth as it possibly could.

So my wife and I, along with our young son, would like to say a big thank you for making the space in the roof of our house a beautiful room in our home.

Loft conversions Cambridge really do solve space needs….

We were delighted with the full-service experience we received from SJB. The fact that they project managed the build with their team made the whole process stress free. Alan did an excellent job of explaining the process and what would be involved and everything ran smoothly. The variation orders that were sent through the duration of the build made it easy for us to keep track of where any additional expenditure was required and all options were open to discussion to ensure that we got what we wanted and needed within our available budget. We were told that our build would take 8 weeks and it took 8 weeks and 1 day. Given the additional work which we asked SJB to do as the build progressed, this was excellent and relatively unheard of in the building industry. They were also ready to start a week earlier than initially planned which was great.

The quality of the build is excellent and we still can’t quite believe how such a large and useful room was created out of what seemed to be a relatively small space. The quality and workmanship of the staff and contractors was fantastic and we have a number of finishes, particularly with the plastering which we are very pleased with. Even the inevitable items on the snagging list were dealt with quickly and professionally.

A Cambridgeshire loft conversion which improved the first floor too….

May we take this opportunity to thank your whole team for their efforts? We expected a few hiccups with various elements along the way but your attention to detail and hard work delivered a first class loft and reconfiguration of our first floor.

Would you please thank in particular Colin and Dave who have driven the project extremely well and are a credit to the Saxon John Brown company name?

Convert a loft into a master bedroom and en-suite shower room….

We are delighted with our new loft rooms and with the service that we received from Saxon John Brown throughout the building project. One of the reasons that we used your loft conversion company is that we received a complete service from design stage, through the planning process, building and internal decorations.

At each stage we were impressed by the professionalism of your team. Building work began when we had a three month old baby and our daughter was two years old but your building team did a wonderful job of minimising the disruption and the house was left extremely tidy when your workmen left every night.

Converting our loft into a master bedroom with en-suite shower room has made a huge difference to the house. We had been planning to move house because of a lack of space but now we can stay in the home that we love.
