WW Brown & Sons provide 15 years of excellent service to Harborough family
The Gilbert family have used WW Brown & Son’s services for improvements on their home since 2001 – contacting us for everything from structural alterations to plumbing work. Other projects have included new windows, building work, roof repairs and maintenance, upgraded central heating and an upgrade of the family’s shower system.
One of the largest projects WW Brown & Son’s completed for the Gilberts was fixing work on the home that had been done poorly by the family’s previous builders. The Gilberts came to us with a request for advice and costings on what we could do to improve the available space within their home.
After an in-depth consultation, it was decided that we would carry out significant structural alterations to the master bedroom, as well as making smaller alterations to another two of the house’s four bedrooms. In the master bedroom, the exposed A frame beams were removed and replaced with alternative supports and a large window was removed and replaced with French doors in order to create a new balcony area. Where this had been removed, the exterior wall was filled with matching brickwork.
At the same time, the team worked to add a new dormer window to the family’s guest bedroom, a new window to another bedroom, and added insulated plasterboard to the single width brick walls at the tip of the bedroom walls in an older part of the house.
Discussing the work on this project, Maggie Gilbert said:
WW Brown’s builders and plasterers carried out the work with minimal disruption to us even though it involved work in 3 out 4 bedrooms. They did it on time, on budget, and to a high standard.
The family have also called on WW Brown & Son’s when they had problems with their water at a time when it was desperately needed. Maggie explains:
Our shower started spurting hot water out of the controls, and the only way to stop it was to turn off the water to the whole house – not good on a day when we are hosting an important family party and had lots of people staying with us!
We called Roy Brown and he sent someone over to look at the problem – he was here within half an hour and fixed the problem within another thirty minutes. We couldn’t have been more grateful and I am not sure who else would have provided such an excellent response.
After calling on WW Brown & Son’s for all their building and plumbing needs for 15 years, the Gilbert family have expressed their happiness at the service we’ve provided. Maggie adds:
I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending WW Brown & Sons – they have always provided an excellent service and delivered a high quality finish to all the projects they have done for us.
They definitely provide the best value of any builders we’ve used, as when we have used cheaper builders we have had to get WW Brown & Son’s in later to deal with the areas others have cut corners on! They provide a high quality, reliable, and responsive service.
