'I find it difficult to articulate the gratitude I have for Carl and what he has achieved with my property. The building I have been left with is more than I could have wished for and far exceeded my expectations.
After various excessive quotes from other building contractors, we came across Octagon Construction Ltd. Carl arrived prompt and eager to grasp what we as potential clients required in terms of labour, materials and time frames for a large extension.
Our quote arrived, which was far more competitively priced than previous ones from other building contractors. The workers arrived on site on the date agreed and we have not looked back since.
I have an old stone build character property, which inevitably brought numerous unexpected challenges along the way. Carl remained un-phased and was always on hand to find a solution. At various stages of the build, Carl had the foresight to see potential mishaps, which saved precious time and expense.
As the house grew, I could see additional elements I wanted incorporating into the build, for example a moved stairway. This proved to be no issue. Carl was able to plan design and execute this to my taste.
Considering the size of the build and the strict budget on reflection, you would assume this would have been a stressful experience. I can honestly say this was not the case and that is solely down to Carl and the levels of trust that developed. Everything that we asked for was done promptly, professionally and with care. Carl was also willing to offer suggestions and options in terms of improvements, which we as novices would have totally overlooked.
I cannot thank Carl enough for the work he has done for us. He is not 'just a builder.' He is a visionary, craftsman, problem solver, leader and a gentleman.'
