My wife and I were very keen to extend our house and have a loft extension built as a financially viable way of gaining the extra bedroom and bathroom we needed. We went through the process of getting several quotations from different companies and we were immediately impressed with the attitude shown by the two Paul's from North and South. The work was started on schedule and progressed very quickly leading to it being completed on time and to a very high standard. We have had a very positive experience from using North And South and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anybody looking to have a loft extension built.

North and South have just completed a large, complex kitchen/study/garage extension for us. It required extensive steelwork to underpin the existing house and accomodate a 6m glass bi-folding door and large atrium for the new kitchen. It also incorporated large areas of plastering, tiling and piped under-floor heating. The workmanship has been of the highest quality and professionalism, dedication and attitude of the team has been first rate. The subcontractors they used were first rate and the whole team interfaced very well with the architect/surveyor, specialist door/glass supplier and kitchen fitters that we had already chosen. They coped professionally with the inevitable changes (although these were few and unforeseeable) and priced additions that we requested fairly and competitively.
We would thoroughly recommend them to anybody considering any scale of building work, as they were recommended to us by friends.

We asked North & South to quote for works based on recommendations from friends and they have lived up to all expectations at every stage of the project. During the couple of months of works we have worked closely with all 3 owners (Paul, Gary & Paul) and they have all approached their work with a courteous, considerate, honest and reliable manner. We lived in the house throughout the works and North & South treated it as a family home rather than simply a building site and were meticulous in tidying up any mess at the end of each day which was much appreciated.
We were very impressed by their customer focus - they genuinely put the customer first. Their quotes were honoured and any unforeseen issues were fully explained and agreed before proceeding. As customers, we felt that North & South did everything to keep costs down to those originally agreed. The attention to detail has been outstanding in all aspects of the works and throughout the project they were very amenable to any changes in specification that we requested. We are delighted with the completed works. In our experience North & South are a very professional, trustworthy and helpful firm and we have already recommended them to several friends considering building works.
Many thanks Paul, Gary & Paul for an excellent job!

North and South built a single storey side extension at our property. The level of workmanship and professionalism was of the highest quality.
I found them to be friendly and totally trustworthy. I would not hesitate to recommend them and also would certainly ask them to carry out any future work at our property.
Mr & Mrs Lang, Shenley, Hertfordshire
In March 2006, North & South Carpentry completed a garage conversion, rear and side extension on our three bedroom semi. We are not builders and our grasp of DIY is sketchy to say the least. This made it all the more important to get builders who would not only do a good job, but also give advice where needed and most importantly trustworthy.
In Paul and Gary we were lucky enough to find both!
North & South were recommended to us by two separate people, both of whom had them back to do more work later on. I would not hesitate to recommend them to others and they are currently working for two of our best friends.

We cannot speak highly enough of the excellent work that Gary and Paul have completed for us. They are friendly, likeable individuals who take their trade very seriously and professionally, and for whom customer care is a reality not just an afterthought. We recommend them most highly.
Lorraine and Nick, Hatch End, Harrow
The standard of workmanship has been excellent throughtout across a range of trades from electrical work to decorating. They have responded rapidly to problems and issues(old pipework causing leaks) and finally they have been communicative throughout the process and have kept me fully informed.
Quotations were kept to and any additional work negotiated by agreement with the minimum of fuss.
They are a really decent team of men and I was happy to have them in my home and was very pleased with the finish work.
Dorothy Thornhill, Elected Mayor of Watford
During the project everyone has been most helpful, reliable, courteous,cheerful and considerate-both to us and our neighbours. We were kept informed at all times about the progress of the work and all of our requests were met with helpful and positive response.
Please pass on our sincere thanks to everyone involved in our project for the their hard work and professionalism.
We have no hesitation in recommending you to others.
Phil & Helen, Abbots Langley, Hertfordshire
The quality of their workmanship is excellent as is their manner and efficiency. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone as an outstandingly professional firm.
Mr & Mrs Waite, Bushey, Hertfordshire
In March 2008 we used North & South to build our loft conversion. We have been very happy with all aspects of the build, including quality, finish and communications. The work was completed to a high standard and within the agreed timescale.
They were at all times, professional, considerate and tidy. I would not hesitate to recommend North & South to anyone looking for a local building firm providing good service and value for money.
