We are so pleased that we decided to work with Plus Rooms for our kitchen side return extension.

Right from the start they took all the stress out of it because they provide a complete package – from architect drawings, to applying for planning permission, getting the teams organised etc. Everybody we worked with was honest, straight forward and a pleasure to have around.

One of the things I enjoyed most about Plus Rooms is that they give accurate budgets for the build. And then on top they give a list of other things (contingencies) that sometimes crop up that are worth bearing in mind. All the building work was completed at the price that Plus Rooms agreed at the start. On top, we also had some of the issues outlined in the contingencies. But there were no big surprises. All building work was completed exactly on time with the outlined schedule.

The only small issues we had were with the finishing team, which is a new service that Plus Rooms offer so there are teething issues. But although slower than we would have liked, they still finished to a good standard.

Overall, we would highly recommend Plusrooms and would use them again ourselves if we find ourselves needing an extension in future.

Plus Rooms built a rear extension to our mid-terrace house, plus a new patio, a utility room (our boiler was moved) plus a small courtyard/light-well for ventilation and light.

We lived in the house throughout the build (in winter) and we found the team to be very considerate and accommodating. We think our build had some features that were unusual and we were impressed by the way that Plus Rooms listened to and considered the implications of the things we asked for. We are very happy with the extension, which has added the extra space we wanted and which has well designed features. Many of the features were a result of thoughtful recommendations by the project team. The exterior build was done on time and the project was delivered on budget.

The quality of the work was really good, for example, we asked for the brickwork to be done in the same style as our Edwardian house, particularly the “interior” courtyard wall which now faces our kitchen window. The workmen (plumbers, electricians and builders) were all nice to deal with, tidy and hardworking.

The problem solving was fine – we live in an old house and there were a few surprises.

We would have no hesitation in recommending PlusRooms.

If I could give more than 5 Stars for this review I would – our experience working with PlusRooms was nothing short of fabulous. The project management team are professional and extremely knowledgable and all of the tradesmen working on the project were top notch – everyone was a pleasure to work with, took pride in their work and went above and beyond. From the initial meeting through to post-build, they provided a stress free process that was on time, and we also felt the budgeting and contingency was accurate unlike the spiralling costs you hear on from builds. The team of tradesmen working on the project were all equally as impressive, helpful and professional. We undertook our project whilst ‘living in’ with 12m old twins and a 3yr old, which sounded daunting but everyone was incredibly respectful and accommodating which goes a very long way! Post build their after care has been equally as attentive. We had sought a few other quotes from competitors but are so grateful we went with PlusRooms – we simply cannot recommend PlusRooms highly enough!

Plus rooms designed and installed our kitchen side extension in South East London. The service from start to finish was great. We had issues with neighbour objecting to the planning initially and they guided and reassured us through this process and managed the neighbour during the build. The build itself, finished on time and inline with the budget provided by Plus Rooms. Due to the similar nature of these works and the layout of a typical terrace Plus Rooms are a well oiled machine and therefore can spot an issue before it is realised and advise best on how to make the space work. We would use plus rooms again in the future. Thanks for everything, we love our house now!

Plus Rooms delivered on our loft room building project – both in terms of the end result and the process to get there.

Planning: They suggested well-designed, practical, space-efficient ideas as we planned the build. As the project took shape, they delivered on what they said they would.

Build: The work ran to time and when things cropped up (as they do in old London houses), they proactively sorted them out efficiently, openly and to a high standard to keep the work on track.

Result: The finished product is exactly what we envisaged.  Plus Rooms were helpful and professional throughout and overall the process was remarkably painless.

We are delighted with the result.

We had a great experience with the Plus Rooms team in converting our unusual loft space into a bedroom, bathroom and study.

The project was delivered largely on time and budget – where there were overspends or time extensions it was because we expanded the scope or increased the spec.

The builder worked incredibly quickly, the project manager was responsive and helpful and the electrician and finisher/decorator had excellent attention to detail. When we did raise concerns about the way something was done, PlusRooms was quick to resolve the issue for us.

It was a huge help to have someone other than ourselves manage the timeline and keep contractors to account. We’re really happy with the end product and love our new space – we would definitely recommend working with PlusRooms.

We were looking for all inclusive package from start to finish for our side return and first floor extension as we didn’t have any experience or time to do it ourselves. After getting various quotes we decided to go with Plus Rooms which was definitely the right decision. Plus Rooms arranged everything from start to finish and kept us informed all the way though the project. Project started on time and finished ahead of schedule by couple of weeks. Dealing with numerous trades people was a joy, our project manager was out standing, main builder was polite, knowledgeable and did fantastic job. Finishing team were of very high standard and did everything we asked. We are very happy with our new house which has transformed our lives. Will be definitely recommending Plus Rooms to all our friends and neighbours.

We decided to use Plus Rooms as they gave us a very reasonable and detailed quote, and they were able to run our extension project from beginning to end. They coordinated everything for us, they did all the planning work and put in place their building team, covering all the work needed to complete the build, so that all ran smoothly. Plus rooms were excellent. We would definitely recommend them. In fact we have recommended them locally a number of times now. They stuck to their quote. The pricing was very transparent. The temporary kitchen they put in place meant we had minimal disruption. The building team was very hardworking and considerate. All the work was done well, as planned and on time. We are really pleased with our extension, we love using this new space. It is so light and spacious.

We had an excellent experience with Plus Rooms and can thoroughly recommend them.

They completed a loft conversion and a side return extension in our Edwardian house in SE London. The work was completed pretty much on time and on budget. Our quote was in late 2021 and the work started in September 2022 and they honoured this despite major increases in the cost of materials, which was a testament to their realistic pricing/costing based on what suppliers had agreed for them. Any options that could potentially increase costs (such as choice of windows) were clearly explained to us and always kept as much to budget as possible. We had cheaper quotes from other companies but after reading reviews from those who’ve gone with cheaper options they normally regret this as costs spiral way beyond initial quotes or things end in tears with builders disappearing before projects completed or not returning to fix problems. It seems that realistic pricing is much better to go for than the cheapest quote ( which sounds to often end up with a more inflated final price – with a lot of stress and pain added on top)!

We felt every stage of the project felt was very well managed and we always felt reassured by, and confident in the advice given and decisions made. They dealt with difficulties in obtaining planning permission for raising the roofline of the loft space, calmly and efficiently, and complications during the build – such as managing to create a good internal space that looked good from the outside for our loft conversion, in what turned out to be a uniquely tricky shaped gable space.

Every member of the team was extremely professional, and it was a pleasure to have them all working in the house whilst we continued to live there during the build. The project manager in particular, was extremely knowledgeable, responsive and ‘can-do’, and nothing was too much trouble. He coordinated the rest of the individual teams very well, and this made the project feel efficient and well organised.

The builders were calm, efficient and skilled, and worked long hours at times, to complete the work on time. The internal finishing team were also excellent – the quality of their work was extremely high, and again, nothing was too much trouble. Our only slightly more negative experience was with the plumbers working for Plus Rooms whose prices, even for just a basic fitting out of the loft and kitchen, were nearly double the estimate given in the initial quote, so it is worth clarifying what the costs will be for what you have planned. This was in contrast to the costs for the electrics, which was almost exactly what was originally quoted.

We’re absolutely delighted with the new spaces in our home and wouldn’t hesitate in both recommending Plus Rooms to others, and in using them again ourselves.

Excellent service provided from start to finish. Project management was first-class and quality of finish and ability to keep to deadlines was second to none.
