Last year we underwent a transformation of our downstairs living area and instructed Kasteel to knock through a central load bearing wall to open up the house. After being let down by another persons quote, Richard gave us a swift quote and arranged all the steel required and set to work with very short notice.
The outcome was absolutely amazing and Richard managed the whole project for us, recommending plumbers and informing us when certain things needed doing. I’d have no hesitation recommending them for any building works.
We decided after obtaining planning permission to take the plunge and have a single storey extension which would incorporate a living room and fully kitted out bathroom,we called richard who explained in great detail the process including full costings,work commenced the following week,by week 6 we were watertight and completed at the end of week 8,the service we received by the whole team was outstanding,more or less daily updates what works would be carried out and how they would be doing it,even going to see the neighbours to update them,the work was first class by all the tradesman concerned,we felt totally at ease with the whole development which was a massive commitment financially,the most impressive part for us was the attention to detail,thanks to these guys we have got a fantastic new area to our home and added value at the same time.richard gave us the build cost and that's exactly what we paid,no hidden costs,if your looking for honesty,reliability,first class workmanship these are the guys without question.
I can't thank the members of the Kasteel team enough. Thoroughly professional throughout the build helping to ensure what can be a very stressful experience went smoothly and swiftly.
The quality of workmanship in addition to the pace at which they constructed the extension left my wife and I in no doubt that we had picked the right team for the job. As with any construction unforeseen challenges arise, the guys at Kasteel dealt with all such issue swiftly and professionally always ensuring that our requirements were at the center of their thinking and problem solving.
In summary great quality work from a team who are fully customer-centric putting the client at the heart of what they do. I can't recommend Kasteel highly enough and are incredibly happy with the end result of their work.

Last year Kasteel Construction had the hard task of building an extension for me.
The purpose of the build was to keep a family member at home and not have to go into a home.
I wanted the new build to comply with 2 things. One it had to remain to look like home and not a hospital, and flow with the rest of the house. Secondly had to adhere to specific turning spaces have a reinforced roof for a hoist and a wet room .
I met with Richard and straight away felt at ease. He actually listened and took on board what we wanted .He understood that the build had to be right for us. Richard and his team of builders took on the task of turning my garage into a room. The room had to be insulated so there wouldn’t be a drop in temperature. The extension also involved a garden room with a sky light for all the family to sit in all weathers. I was quoted 3500 for a ramp to the back door but Richard came up with a fantastic idea I hadn’t thought of and lifted the current mono blocks, raised the drive and re laid the bricks. Not only did it look great it was practical too and it saved me money.
I am incredibly happy with my build. Richard and his team were tidy, time Conscientious polite and hard working. It’s not often you can find a genuine builder that cares and takes pride in his work. I would highly recommend anyone contacting Richard for a quotation. If I was unsure about anything I would call Richard and we would either be able to sort it by phone or pop around.
Everyone who has been to my house since ( including builders) have said what an excellent job they had made. Couldn’t be happier. Thanks Richard and your team.
I have no hesitation in recommending Kasteel Construction.
Richard and the team were friendly, professional, inspired confidence, and left us with a great job.
Richard also offered us advice throughout the build, and even improved on our initial design, leaving us delighted.
It can often be overbearing when dealing with and choosing a builder, but Richard and his team were so easy to deal with, and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a local builder.
Needed a driveway widened which included rebuilding the pillar and rebuilding the wall as well as laying the concrete down to the house entrance,Richard came out gave me a very reasonable price,the work was carried out,everything cleaned up and did a amazing job.the staff were so friendly and explained step by step what they were doing.highly recommended,will now only use these guys.

'Richard carried out a side return extension and extensive knock through for me on an Edwardian property. The work was completed on time to an excellent standard that I am very happy with. Richard provided me with a competitive quote which explained everything that would be involved. The build was quite a complex job involving a lot of steels, bifold doors, and a brand new kitchen, but Richard and the team made me feel at ease and explained everything to me at every part of the process. I was incredibly happy with the final result and would not hesitate to recommend him to any of my family and friends.''

Project 1 – large house extension – May- December 2017
Kasteel construction undertook a large two storey side and one storey rear extension for us during 2017. They did a fantastic job. Their quote and scoping was well thought out and clear. Richard was particularly good at being involved from day 1 with the drawings and planning permission, right through to ultimate building control sign off. He was always on hand and approachable for queries or advice both before and after his team were actually on site, and it was never too much trouble to come to site to assist us. He also took care to explain things in laymans terms for those of us who are not experienced in the building trade. He and his team managed the build itself, but he also coordinated windows, doors, garage doors, roofing, drainage changes, building control and many other moving parts for us. While on site he and his team were reliable, professional, approachable, tidy, and very helpful. The build was well organised, and we were always aware of what was going on each day, and in the days to come so everything was completed efficiently due to good planning. The quality of the team’s workmanship was excellent. We would definitely use Richard and his team again.
Project 2 – garage conversion – December 2019
Richard and his team undertook a garage project with us recently. Richard was involved right through from planning to completion, and was able to fit us into his schedule quickly which was very much appreciated. He was approachable and clear in his planning and view of how the project would run. He communicated with us well both before and throughout the project to keep us updated on how each day had gone and any matters where he needed decisions taken. He and his team were professional, reliable and friendly, and they got the job done to a high standard and quickly. They were also very mindful of keeping the site secure and keeping the impact of their works to a minimum. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Richard!
