‘We love our “new” family home. Jason’s team took real pride in their work and nothing was ever too much trouble.’ – Victoria Brock
Victoria Brock and her husband recently completed a major re-build at their four-bedroom Victorian terraced home. They chose Jason Wilkinson of Whitehall Construction as their contractor and here Victoria recalls the experience of working with him on the seven-month project.
‘We bought the property three years ago and then took some time to deliberate about making changes. The house was tall and narrow and like a maze, with lots of small rooms and dark, narrow corridors. Fundamentally, our aim was to open up, extend out and increase the floor space: that involved bringing half the garden inside, creating a mezzanine dining level and enlarging the living room and ground floor.
‘Our architect knew and recommended Jason and, when we met him, our first impressions were very positive. He was straightforward, realistic and told us exactly what we needed to know. Of course, it helped that he’s lovely: as well as trusting Jason, we knew that we would be seeing him every day, so it was essential that we got on well on a personal level.
‘The on-site team reflected Jason’s high standards. They were friendly, turned up on time and their workmanship across the board was exceptional – after a while they became like part of the family. Jason himself was always available to answer any questions and he also has an excellent eye for detail. I handled all the interior decoration myself and, as well as ensuring that the plans were practical, I really appreciated his second opinion.
‘If we need any more work done in the future, we wouldn’t think of going to anyone else. We absolutely recommend Whitehall Construction.’
