Loft conversions in Barnet(7 Posts)
Can anyone recommend a local company that specialises in loft conversions. We are looking for an efficient and trustworthy company who work to a high standard, with minimal disruption!
I'm looking for the same - we're East Finchley are and there are about four people in my street alone this year who've done it. I'll post when i've got some recommendations, do let me kmow if you get any good ones too. I think it's well owrht getting peoples opinions, one of our neighbours had a total disaster, roof leaking, unsafe work, all sorts, and the other had a great time but she got a project manager and was quoted much more. She paid a lot less in the end though than the guys who got the cheaper quote and ended up with cowboys. Good luck with it!

Whilst the team who built the physical loft (subcontractors) were not too bad, the overall service from Abbey Partnership was shockingly bad. (this company also uses the name"Abbey Loft Conversions Ltd.")Two years on our 'New' heating system still does not work properly, snags were never rectified and we were basically left high and dry and pressured for all money, sometimes in cash. Poor project management, rude and argumentative staff and a never present MD only added to the three very bad leaks and what to us is unfinished business. Abbey Partnership were only interested in doing it on the cheap, subcontracting and cutting corners, never taking responsibility for their work and delivering on their proposition. We really regret choosing Abbey for our loft conversion.
I am highly surprised at the review above about Abbey Partnership/Lofts - we had a loft installed by Abbey and our experience was the exact opposite, it was a highly positive experience from beginning to end, and we absolutely love the loft they created. We can't recommend them highly enough - super friendly, helpful, thoughtful, considerate and responsive team, a creative design solution that made the absolute most of the space we had, top-quality workmanship and materials - definitely never stinting on time or materials. The project manager was brilliant, and the directors were always on hand. Our loft is fantastic, everyone who sees it is highly impressed. We highly recommend Abbey to anyone interested in getting a loft conversion.
