We also require the existing internal kitchen to dining room door bricking up and plastering.

Feedback for Open Plan Solutions (Hunbuild Ltd)

Due to problems with St Albans Council Planning Dept we ended up hiring Adam and his team to refurbish our kitchen. This involved opening up the existing door between the dining room and the kitchen, blocking up the door between the kitchen and conservatory and making good. They also installed new wiring, fuse box, plumbing and kitchen units, tiled the walls and floor and painted.
From the first meeting Adam and his colleagues were always polite and friendly. We had various members of his team present depending on which phase the job was in - builder, joiner, electrician, plumber, labourer etc, all of whom were on time and worked hard often late into the evening and on Saturdays. Not all spoke English but there was always someone at the job who did. They prepared the area every morning with dust sheets and cleaned up in the evening before leaving. The job took just under 3 weeks which was a little longer than originally estimated but we were given regular updates so we were aware of planned completion. The final product was of a very high quality and all remaining little bits of work were completed before they left the job. Their quotes do not generally include materials and supplies (the estimate will state this) so remember to budget for that. Adam did send me regular account updates with scans of receipts for everything they bought so it is immediately clear what you are charged for. I wouldn't hesitate to hire Hunbuild again for any future work we have done on our house.
