Testimonials

We are delighted to be writing this letter to you to thank you and your team at Lewington Homes for the excellent work that you have carried out to help us realise our 'new' home. It is ten months now since we moved back into our renovated house and we could not be happier. You have an excellent team at Lewington Homes who have been very accommodating in understanding and appreciating the needs of our family. Our neighbours frequently commented upon their punctuality and work ethic in addition to the quality of their work. Friends of ours who live in and around the village who have had similar projects carried out with other builders have been particularly impressed with the attention to detail in the finished product. From the outset it has been your attention to detail that has been particularly impressive, beginning with your initial response to the invitation to tender in which each aspect of the project was individually priced to help us understand our building costs, and which afforded us the luxury of enhancing the specification to include some comforts such as under floor heating in the tiled areas. This continued throughout the project where your frequent guidance and suggestions led to other features being incorporated or modified that were either more practical or pleasing to the eye, such as the placement of reused tiles from the old garage to those parts of the roof seen from the road. We would also like to thank you especially for the level of after care service that Lewington Homes has provided. We do and will continue to highly recommend you and Lewington Homes, and are only too happy to act as a reference for any future prospects considering your quality services.

Refurbishment and extension


Thank you for doing a great job within cost with no hidden charges. It was very reassuring to have you acting as Project Manager, this meant all trades worked in harmony and went out of their way to make sure I was happy with everything. Matching the bricks for the corners proved difficult but you came up trumps. I have already sung your praises to friends. I hope all continues to go well for you – you deserve it.

Extension


I am writing to express my thanks to you and your team for the extensive refurbishment works you carried out on our family home. Having moved to Farnham from London we had few local contacts so when appointing a local contractor it was without any background knowledge or recommendation. The quote you gave us was one of the most competitive, but importantly for us the most detailed and well put together and also delivered to us quicker than a number of others. The work started as planned and I was impressed with how hard and diligently your team worked. We now have a fantastic family home and love living there. Hopefully we will be able to invite you and your team back soon to start on the garage re-build and extension to complete the final plans for our home.

Complete refurbishment – 6 bedroom house


Lewington Homes have recently converted our loft into a master bedroom and ensuite. We were so impressed with their service that we also asked them to refurbish our bathroom and will, in the very near future, use them to do our kitchen.
Our initial enquiry was responded to with a visit within three days, and, on submission of our architect's plans, a quote was provided within a week. (Of the other ten local builders we approached, five responded and only two offered quotes, these arriving some six weeks later.) Work started on the target date established some four months prior, and the building materials even arrived during the week before. All work was completed by the end date requested (seven weeks in total). At all times throughout the project, Richard Gray was immediately available (daytime & evening) and resolved queries speedily.

Quality of Work All materials used (eg. light fittings, door handles, timber) were of a very good quality and the end product is impressively robust, easily serviceable and neatly finished.
Hugely Impressive Work Force: Lewington employ numerous staff and consequently were able to work quickly. At times up to seven men were working in our house. All workers were civilised and considerate. They treated our house with care, attempted to be as unobtrusive as possible and made polite conversion when appropriate. The work ethic of all workers was staggering. They arrived promptly at 0745 each morning, paused briefly for one short tea break and a lunch break, and at all other times worked fiendishly hard.


Accuracy of Quote The price quoted by Lewington did exceed the quotes provided by the two other building contractors that eventually responded to us, however, these quotes both stated that not everything was included in their approximations. Richard Gray from Lewington went to great lengths to stress that his prompt quote included every conceivable expense and, very pleasingly, our final bill did not exceed his quote. All in all we are delighted with the service that Lewington Homes provided. We enjoyed the company of their workers and appreciated their courtesy, care and incredible work ethic. Both ourselves and visitors admire the quality of our loft conversion and bathroom. Without question, we wholeheartedly recommend them to fellow home improvers.

Loft Conversion


I wanted to write and say how delighted Mum and I are, at not only the finished product, but the way the whole project has been conducted. Trying to organise and manage a renovation from afar was my biggest concern. With your help, patience and guidance our concerns were unfounded. The quality of the workmanship has been excellent throughout and the finish is exactly what I hoped for. Your team was always polite, courteous and helpful to Mum and she has always been treated with kindness. I don't believe she would have received such service elsewhere. Mum has had a new lease of life and this is everything we could have hoped for.

Refurbishments

We ensure full project and site management for every refurbishment project. We employ a truly structured approach to domestic building works, as well as leaving an excellent finish, enabling us to offer the client an exceptional building service.
We carry out renovation/refurbishment projects by following one of the two procedures below.

We can design every aspect of your refurbishment, using experienced architects and then carry out the build stage from this point

If the client already has a set of drawings we will develop a solid working relationship with client and architect to ensure a seemless service

Extensions

When planning an extension, it requires the skills of many craftsmen. From carpentry and joinery, electrical work, plumbing, flooring, bricklaying, plastering, painting, tiling, lighting and heating, there are many trades involved. At Lewington Homes we are proud to say that, as we have these skills in house, our own craftsmen complete most of the work and the use of sub-contractors is kept to a minimum.

We strongly believe in building a personal rapport with our customers to develop a better understanding of their requirements and expectations. Because every project is managed carefully, we are able to co-ordinate each task so that the building programme can flow without interruption. In essence, we start and finish projects on time with the least amount of disruption to our clients

Conversions

A loft or garage conversion can add substantially more living space to your home, increasing the value of your property. We construct all types of loft conversions, such as mansards, dormers and the installation of rooflights/Velux™ which allows you to keep the shape of the existing roof. Please contact us for free advice on your options.

Health & Safety

Running a safe site is essential to any project. Longdown Developments complies fully with CDM (Construction, Design and Management) regulations.

Insurance

We are fully insured in respect of all Public Liability and Employers Liability Risks. We are insured by AXA who are one of the largest insurers of commercial business in the United Kingdom.

Sustainability / Environmental

Longdown Developments recognises the impact of construction on the environment and therefore we are constantly looking at issues such as energy use and carbon emissions.

We work with designers to improve the lifecycle environmental performance of buildings through better planning, smarter procurement and the use of sustainable materials.

We are actively looking for ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by reducing demand for fuel and energy in new buildings.

Longdown Developments is one of Farnham's most reputable building contractors delivering high specification projects. We have considerable experience throughout the area working with architects, developers and private clients.
