Testimonials and case studies from clients

“We have a semi-detached 1930’s property and wanted to convert the loft into two bedrooms and a shower-room, for our teenage lads. We had done quite a bit of research, and already earmarked a few builders before meeting Gary from Build&Convert, but it was his straightforward approach, experience and depth of knowledge that immediately stood out.  I recall upon his first look at our finished drawings, he used his insight to suggest subtle improvements to our design in terms lighting/spacing, which proved invaluable. His team were excellent, comprising of a core unit throughout the project, and specialists brought in as/when demanded. The team were all punctual, very hard working, polite, and easy to have around.  During the project, Gary was good at listening to our needs and responded quickly without fuss when changes needed to happen. I should also mention that as a family of 5, we stayed in the house during the entirety of the build without any major disruptions. So in summary: Budget and timelines – The project came in on budget. In terms of timing, we had included additional works during the project (e.g. fitted wardrobes, laminate flooring, etc..), and so this added about a fortnight. Quality of the work – We are very happy with the build, and it feels robust and solid. Build team – the core build team, electricians, roofers, etc… were all excellent, courteous, and hard working. All in all, Gary has crafted 3 wonderful spaces for us, and he is my go to Contractor for my next project. I would certainly recommend him”.

“I have had a loft conversion and ground floor rear extension completed by Gary and his men at Build & Convert .
Gary took the time to discuss each step of the project and was always available to discuss any aspect of ongoing work.
I am extremely pleased with the high standard of work carried out, the attention to detail, sensible and cost effective suggestions and clear and reasonable quote provided.  The quality of the finishing speaks for itself. Friends, family and neighbours have seen our renovated home and love it! They’re now keen to consider instructing Gary to do work on theirs too!  Without a doubt, highly recommended !

“I hired Build & Convert to do my loft conversion and kitchen extension a few years ago. The two projects were finished to a very high standard and was commended by friends and family when they came around. Mr Taylor, the owner was very professional, trustworthy and always met deadline and worked within my budget. I have recommended him to friends and neighbours who have been very satisfied with his work. The after-care is also exemplary. He would undertake any snagging problems without a fuss. I highly recommend this service especially if you would like a first class finish to your building work.

Olivia Suter, Streatham SW16

 Build and Convert is the firm I used in 2016 when I built my extension. I still have strangers wanting information about my Builder. Minor problems are dealt with promptly and efficiently. After care of the build is excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend ‘Build and Convert. If you want a Builder for life choose “Build and Convert.”

 “Gary and his team did a huge refurb for me 4 years ago and it still looks amazing !
It was a massive time for me as it was my late Mum and Dads house which we had been living in since 1976. A beautiful bit dated Victorian property.
I had my dream kitchen with 2 huge electric sky lights and bi fold doors on two of my patios. The old patio dugg out and bought up to the same level as my large living dining room. A complete dream kitchen. The whole place completely re-wired and redecorates to the highest standard. New windows.
Nothing was too much trouble for Gary and his team . I stressed they didn’t! I also had a new boiler and radiators etc .
The tagging was superb and I continue to use some of Gary’s guys.
I have recommended Gary to many friends and family who are all delighted and will continue to do so!

“Build and Convert built a lovely extension to our house a few years ago and it still looks brilliant today. Gary, who runs the company, has fantastic attention to detail; he comes up with loads of great ideas; he’s helpful, approachable and made the whole experience stress free. He’s gone on to do loft conversions and extensions for other friends who saw and liked our extension, and everyone says the same thing. I really couldn’t recommend someone more. Beautiful work at honest competitive prices”.

Helen Harker, Streatham SW16

“My loft conversion was done by Build and Convert Services supervised by Mr Gary Taylor. The job was done very well and I am so pleased with the final result even after 10 years later. I will use this firm again and certainly recommend him”.

Bob Prabhu, Streatham SW16


“Build and Convert have completed 1 3m kitchen extension approx 6 years ago in a past property. They have also completed a refurbishment of an existing structure in my present home. The works were completed to an extremely high standard..i still receive compliments from admirers. Any aesthetic jobs that needed to be finished off after the main works were completed where done promptly and without any fuss. I have also returned to the tradesmen who work for the company when in need of smaller jobs ie tiling, plastering, removal and fixing of that troublesome radiator..All works have been completed and I have been extremely happy with the process and the over all finish.
I am in the process of planning for my next renovation .I have approached Build A Convert Services for a quotation and will continue to make them my first port of call”.
