When we first moved into our house we were pleased to have the extra space offered by having a conservatory. However, we quickly realised that the conservatory was too hot in summer and too cold in winter. We decided to take down the conservatory and build a two storey extension that would include a living room upstairs and a balcony that offered views of the fells behind.

We received several quotes for the planned work and McKnight’s came in with a competitive price. We had also seen other work that they had completed in our village and the work seemed to be of a high standard and so we chose McKnights.

From the outset the service was professional and friendly. Gary worked closely with us at every stage of the build and gave helpful suggestions on how our original plans could be adapted here and there to improve the overall look of the extension. On more than one occasion we changed our mind as to what we wanted, in one instance switching from a traditional staircase to a spiral at quite short notice. Within an hour we were sent a wide range of staircases to choose from. As and when we changed things we were given frequent updates as to how this would effect the final bill.

McKnight’s started the project two weeks ahead of schedule and completed on time, they were on site every single day apart from one day where we had very heavy rain. With a large skilled work force they have the ability to have lots of builders on site, pushing the project forward quickly when needed. Every day they arrived promptly at 8am and they tidied up every night before they left.

Now that the extension is complete it has changed our house completely we now have a large kitchen diner, with a staircase leading to our upstairs living room. It has changed the way we live and use our home. The finish is of a very high standard and we are very happy with the end result.

We would have no hesitation in using McKnight’s again and recommending them to others.
