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.

'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!
