We completed our loft conversion with Crown Development Services last year and we’d definitely recommend them!

From when we first met Tom, through to all the office team and contractors, we really appreciated how professional, friendly, honest and trustworthy they were. We love our new space they created and would definitely use them again and recommend them to friends and family.

There were some issues along the way (as expected with any building work) and the team always went out of their way to ensure they were corrected with speed, professionalism and quality.

Thanks so much Tom, Lina, Geri, Kyle and all the other contractors involved. We’re so happy with our new space.

I can't recommend Crown Developments enough.

We have a fantastic new loft bedroom with library and bathroom and the finish is fantastic. Our builders Leigh and Tom were an absolute pleasure to have on site - trustworthy and reliable. They were also really responsive when we needed to communicate out of hours and I knew when they were going to be here and what they were planning to do each day.

A local friend of mine decided to go for a more established (and more expensive) loft company and she deeply regrets not choosing Crown. The finish of her loft, especially materials used for the staircase, are really bad in comparison to what we achieved with Crown. Her loft conversion also came in at £10K over budget where ours was spot on with the original quote from Crown.

When issues did arrive the team were able to deal with them swiftly and professionally. I had a number of more bespoke requests like built-in storage in the bathroom and a library area - these were all easily accommodated despite being slightly unusual.

I have had many compliments about how lovely the loft conversion looks from the outside, "like it has always been there". Re-using our existing roof tiles helped create a really seamless exterior for the dormer.

Very happy customer.

We have just had our loft conversion and whole first floor renovation completed by Crown Development Services and we couldn’t be happier with the finish.

We had three quotes from various local loft companies but Tom’s quote was by far the most competitive and we really bought into him as a person.

From putting our initial deposit down to secure the build we were given a timeline of the process and knew what to expect and when. We found the flexibility we had working with the architects to get the design to match exactly what we needed to gain from the space to be a real bonus.

Due to the current situation our build was brought forwards by about a month which was amazing as we were desperate to get started! Our fitter Rob arrived on site on the first day and assured us they could get the job done within 6 weeks!

The build itself went really smoothly, we had excellent communication from Lina throughout about when material was arriving, through to first fix dates and when to expect various tradesmen on the build. Rob & Simon were always on hand to advise us when our plans changed slightly and nothing was too much trouble. We really struck gold having them as our main fitters. The project finished just over a week ago, and we now have a beautiful master bedroom and bathroom, plus 3 now double rooms on the first floor. Rob has done an amazing job and we couldn’t be happier with our now dream family home.

We have recommended Crown Development Services to everyone considering a loft conversion.

When choosing a company for a loft conversion, we did the obvious thing and got a few companies to quote and discuss the job.

We found Crown with a simple Google search as we wanted to see if there was a local company to offer another quote for comparison.

We ended up choosing Crown because, above all others, they seemed to know their stuff and be genuinely invested in doing right by us. We loved that they are a local, family run business. And this really shows. The quote provided was competitive and very comprehensive which we were very happy with.

We managed to get a build slot earlier than anticipated and Crown were brilliant from the start. We were very fortunate to have Chris and Callum as our main guys doing the work and we honestly cannot recommend these guys more highly!

Right from the start, before any work had started, Chris came to have a chat and a look around. From this point he was giving his ideas and insights which saved us both time and complications later on. He managed to give ideas we’d never thought of, but wish we had! We immediately had a schedule and build plan from Chris and we knew we were in good hands.

The speed at which these guys worked was astounding. And, to have such a quality job as well! We saw progress right from the start and we were kept informed and up to date all the way through.

Every single one of the trades we had in were brilliant. Genuinely really nice guys each with incredible work. I never like to pay people for jobs I can do myself, but all of these trades exceeded expectation.

Special thanks to Chris and Callum for all their work. Their work was fantastic and we genuinely miss having them around. Fully trustworthy, honest guys. Even, on more than one occasion, Callum would look after our 2 year old triplets and 3 year old whilst we chatted to Chris on the next plan. Another special thanks to plumbers Steve and Brogan. These guys are machines and genuinely seemed like they’d do anything for you.

We first met with Tom over a year ago to get a quote for converting our loft.

As soon as we spoke with him we got a great feeling, it’s a great small company and we loved that and how friendly & honest he was. He loved the ideas we had and said it was definitely possible.

We left it a little while before starting but when we got back in contact it was all systems go. We met with Chris who was managing the build, he was fab, really nice guy and told us everything to expect. Super helpful and answered all our questions with ease.

All the work was completed in 6/7 weeks to a high standard. Crown organised everything including roofers, electrics, plumbing, tiling, plastering and scaffolding. We used all the recommended companies which were all amazing and, again, finished to a high standard. Chris managed it all perfectly - was such a stress free process.

We couldn’t be more pleased! The communications with Crown were always easy and quick too, throughout the whole process from architects, checking in, chasing quotes/queries (not that we really needed too) was all great.

We highly recommend Crown. And want to say a special thanks to Callum & Chris for all their hard work with the build and completing any little snags we had. Such hard workers and really nice guys, always here on time and so profession all, yet easy to chat too.

Thanks for everything, you made our dream loft conversion.

We had thought about converting our loft space for several years and when we reached a decision to take the plunge, we engaged with several local companies.

Whilst all reputable it was Tom’s professionalism and genuine enthusiasm that swung it for us. Plus, he was open to all our suggestions and really listened to what we wanted to achieve from the space and was happy to adapt the original design plans.

The scaffolding was due to go right when COVID hit and Crown were completely on the ball in postponing given the uncertainty and in agreement that we should defer until things improved and most importantly we were happy in opening up our home to his team which was a biggie for us.

When Luke and Tyler finally started we knew that we were in good hands, they were respectful of our home, courteous, polite and incredibly hard working. Luke also acted as Project lead liaising with Lina and the other trades who were also incredibly professional. Lina also was in regular contact and any questions we had were promptly dealt with as were any small snagging issues that inevitably arose. Fast forward 8 weeks (would have been less but there was an unavoidable COVID related supply delay) and we couldn’t be happier with the result and our new space which has made a massive difference to our former two up, two down. Our friends who have visited or seen pictures are equally blown away; our once dilapidated dumping ground of a loft is no more.

If you are thinking of extending your home be sure to speak to Crown, you won’t regret it but you will regret not speaking to them!
