Standard of his work was excellent… 5 star review for Jackson Loft Conversion, Brighton

5 star review for Richard Jackson, Jackson Loft Conversion, Brighton

“Complicated job which involved lowering our existing ceilings”

“Communications, was very professional in his approach” says Peter

“Rich worked with us over summer 2018 on our loft conversion, a complicated job which involved lowering our existing ceilings. His ideas and input at the start were invaluable in getting the project off the ground, when we were unsure as to whether or not it would be possible. Once work commenced, Rich was very responsive in terms of communications, was very professional in his approach, and the standard of his work was excellent throughout. We would have no hesitation in recommending him!”

A loft conversion is weather proof at all times

During construction of a loft conversion the roof is weather proofed at the end of a day. A dormer is built with the existing roof still in place. Nothing is left on the scaffold that can be blown away.

Hip to gable loft conversion

Hipped roofs where designed as an economic method of construction. By extending these you can create a lot of space within the loft.  A hip to gable loft conversion is usually required to accommodate the staircase, giving you lots of head room.

Replacement Velux | skylight | roof windows

Yes roof windows get old and will need replacing!

When they start to leak, they course annoyance and eventually damage to other parts of the property.

If the Velux needs replacing I can do this in a few hours and when it is convenient to you or your tenants.

A damp roof may also be something simple like a cracked or slipped tile.

Velux windows come with a 10 year guarantee. This is what they to say, click here.
