Loft conversion in old town Eastbourne
We needed an extra bedroom in our three-bed semi, but couldn't decide whether to do a loft conversion or move house. We considered it on and off for about three years and then finally decided to build upwards – and we haven't regretted it.
We chose French & Thorley as we kept seeing their vans around, so invited them round for a chat. We liked Grant when we dealt with him over the phone and then when we met to talk about the project. He was happy to show us the loft conversion he'd done at his own house, plus another client's and we always felt he was open and honest and nothing was too much trouble.
While we wouldn't say it was stress-free having workmen at the house for several weeks, Grant, Rob, Andy and the team were very respectful of working around our family and tried not to get in the way during the mornings before the school run.
To make the most of the space available, we had a full width dormer and hip to gable end built at the side of the house giving us a bedroom with en suite. It's finished to a high standard and the new space has made such a difference. Now we don't know why we waited so long to do it!
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend French & Thorley and will use them for any other building projects in the future.

Large extension, loft conversion and refurbishment
The team from French and Thorley were a great choice for our extension and loft conversion. It was good to work with a professional team that cared so much about the finished product, but were also great at discussing new ideas and ensuring that opportunities were not missed during the building phase. We love our new home and recommend the company to all that enquire.

Great job all round
Very happy with the quality of workmanship, especially the communication and timeframe the conversion was done in, I would not hesitate to recommend Grant and Robs work to friends and family, and will happily use them again in the future.
