Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

We're not able to find a property done to the standard we want and we're considering a full renovation of a 3 bed house in the Ladder/Gardens area. We're considering:

  • side return extension
  • extending the kitchen into the garden
  • loft conversion including dormer to add a bedroom and bathroom in loft
  • full update of a dated property i.e. redo bathrooms, flooring etc

I'd love to hear from people that have done a renovation like this, particularly:

  • how long it took
  • experiences/advice on planning
  • is architect required, did you use a project manager
  • ballpark costs (DM me if you prefer)
  • any other input

Thanks for any advice you can give!

We got David to quote for our side extension based on the reviews on HoL. We decided not to go with him as his quote was 3x higher than the quote we had from a team who also provided project management. It was really surprising to see the cost difference for identical jobs

Hi Alice, I sent you a connection request for details of your builder? Would you mind providing contact details? Many thanks, Nick

Hi Elinor

David doesn't have a website but his email is fairlopcontractors@gmail.com and his number is 07830 119421. Our work involved two reception rooms being knocked into one, completely refurbished kitchen (including structural changes and new electrics and plumbing) and new bathroom (also involving structural changes). The job was actually small compared to the complete house renovations/extensions he usually does! We couldn't fault him or his work.
