Oakenstone came up with an innovative design for our house, after much discussion with my husband and I. As the build developed, new ideas and options occurred to both us and Oakenstone and these were incorporated seamlessly, after having given us an estimate on any cost/budget change implications. Oakenstone kept in touch with us and involved us and advised us on all the small decisions that are inevitable in such a major alteration to our home e.g. switch and socket locations etc. Overall we have a house that is far better than we could ever have imagined.
It was a pleasure dealing with both James and Dave who provided a very professional service from start to finish.
We were extremely fortunate to find such a reliable and skilled builder/planner having been let down by a company who decided at the last minute they didn't want the job which had awkward access. The team were all courteous and prompt, the work was done to an excellent standard and all within the expected budget. What stands apart with Oakenstone is the level of clear communication about the details as well as the overall plan and the creative solutions to some problems (notably the amount of light into our house). Even though we lived in the house while the work was done (which included removing the kitchen roof, knocking down various walls etc) the level of disruption was surprisingly little as Dave had planned the work around us. James redesigned the layout which has meant that our first floor home now feels much lighter and a better use of space. It is such a pleasure to have had this work done, we wish we'd done it sooner! We would recommend this company unreservedly.
Prior to buying a new house I had a survey carried out which identified various issues. I contacted Oakenstone, as well as other builders, to inspect the issues and provide advice on whether there was work needed or not. Oakenstone were very prompt in both replying and carrying out an inspection. They provided advice on all issues (some were not issues at all) raised and also identified a rather serious issue not raised on the survey. I had ridge and vent tiles repaired on the roof. There was also work carried out on air bricks and ground levels adjoining the house which involved the ground, dirt and gravel being excavated and back filled with pea gravel to the underside of the airbricks. This was due to the ground level being to close to the damp proof course. I was provided with a quote prior to the work being carried out. Once the workmen were up on the roof they identified another issue previously not raised and carried out work to repair this. This was completed with the quoted amount previously given due to one of the jobs taking less time to complete. I would definitely use this builder again and they will be my first point of contact should I ever need a builder again. I would also, without hesitation, recommend this builder to anyone else.
