"We are both very pleased with the way that the original plans were turned into the final build by Adam and the team. The work started as planned and proceeded at a very good pace. The almost inevitable additions and changes made to the original requirements, and any problem solving along the way, were agreed and accommodated within the build in a straight-forward and collaborative manner. The workmanship throughout was to a very high standard of finish. The final cost of the bulk of the build as originally planned was very much in line with the original quote.
The team, including external contractors, was well managed, reliable, punctual and hard-working, and we were always to communicate with key people on the team. We were able to have a positive, friendly and co-operative relationship with all of the team, and our neighbours expressed to us, both during and after the build, their appreciation of the team's respectfulness and cleanliness."
Mr & Mrs Atkins
"Thank you very much to you Adam & Neil, Shah, Po, Luke, Finn and Bobby for all the hard work involved in executing such a great transformation - we are enjoying the results very much. Your team were warm & friendly and the quality of finish is excellent. As discussed feel free to arrange with Ali if you'd like to come back & take pictures!"
Pete & Alli Champion
"We were delighted with the work Adam and his team did in extending our home. Importantly our expectations were managed well throughout so there were no nasty surprises and the work was completed on time and budget."
"Adam Hayman extended our downstairs living space and knocked it through to make and open plan kitchen, dining, living area. The results are fantastic and you can see the quality and care that has gone into all aspects of the work. Throughout the work the team onsite were considerate and friendly. We are really pleased with the results."
Mr & Mrs Bell
"Adam Hayman did a major extension on our Grade 2 listed property that also included a large basement. Throughout the 10 months of build we have nothing but praise for the way the whole works took place. We were always kept up to date, all tradesmen used were highly professional and if problems occurred there were sorted within hours. Hayman are a company we would fully recommend to anyone wanting high quality workmanship from a new build, extension to a new kitchen/bathroom."
John & Karen Handford
"The quality of work, on two occasions, when we had our bathroom completely redone, and then when we had our kitchen refurbished last year, was outstanding. While works were in progress, everything was functioning as a well oiled machine, without fuss, and, on both occasions, the works were completed as promised, on schedule. Truly professional designers. Good value for one's money! Supremely qualified tradesmen!"
"I have used Adam Hayman twice and very happy indeed. The first time was to install a number of bathrooms and the second to build a single storey extension, remodel the ground floor and supply and fit a new kitchen. Both jobs done to a very high standard and I was particularly impressed with the response when ever I had a query or something went not quite as intended. Have happily recommended to friends."
Mr Paul Betts
"Adam Hayman helped us to create our dream home in Esher. We were impressed by the attention to detail, timeliness, and responsibility they showed. During the process we enjoyed creative advise as well as their ability to work to budget. Thank you for the great work!"
Charlotta & Michael West
"With the replacement of our bathroom by your company, now completed, we wish to let you know how pleased we are with the result.
The standard of workmanship is there for all to observe; and we want to express our appreciation for the manner in which all your workmen executed this, leaving the place as clean and tidy at the end of each day, as the difficult circumstances allowed."
Mr & Mrs Verdie
"We want to say thank you to you and the team for all your hard work on our house. You and the team were very professional throughout the works and provided good ideas.
Our neighbours are particularly complimentary to your team, on how well they conducted themselves on site which differentiated your company to others.
There has been challenges along the way, thank you for helping resolve these. We are very much enjoying our new house and are happy with the results."
Hanna & Raymond
Hayman Developments answer questions about home extensions and property conversions in the Kingswood and Surrey areas. Property extensions and conversions can be a little expensive but are proven to be an important way for builders to create extra space at your Kingswood home. Initial investment is recouped through future resale value.
Here, we’ve listed some of the more common questions our builders regularly receive from clients who are considering property conversions and home extensions for the first time.
How long do home extensions take to build?
This will be dependent on the size of any property extensions our builders will be adding to your Kingswood home. Most home extensions, on average, take between 10 to 12 weeks to complete but this is only a rough guideline and not something set in stone.
How much do property conversions and extensions cost?
Again, this is dependant on the type of property conversions or extensions our builders will be performing at your Kingswood home. No matter how big the scope of the job may be, we always do our best to offer highly competitive rates on all work. Our site surveys and our consultations are provided without charge and are free from obligation.
Will I need planning permission?
This depends on the property extensions you’re looking to have at your Kingswood home. Our builders carry out a survey and advise you on whether you need permission or not. We can write to the authorities on your behalf to gain approval. Certain jobs, such as garage and basement conversions, won’t need approval if no major structural changes are needed.
What is a party wall agreement?
Some home extensions require a party wall agreement. A party wall is where your Kingswood home shares a wall with a neighbour. If you go ahead with property conversions or extensions, you have to let your neighbour know at least two months before you intend to start work. This leaves time to iron out any potential problems before work begins.
Can you explain permitted development? Can I build home extensions under this process?
If your Kingswood property is not in a conservation area, you may have permitted development rights. This enables property extensions to be built by our builders without having to go through the planning application treadmill. We will happily discuss the process to you in detail during your free site survey and consultation.
What types of property extensions can I build on my Kingswood home?
You could choose from rear home extensions, side-return extensions and even double-storey extensions. What you want to use them for is entirely up to you but as reputable builders for the Kingswood area, we’ll always advise you on the best possible addition.
What insurances and guarantees do you provide?
We carry public liability insurance up to £5million as well as employer’s liability cover. All work is fully guaranteed. Email us if you need to see documentation at any point.
Can I have other work done, such as renovations, whilst I’m having property conversions carried out at my Kingswood home?
Yes. Our builders will be informed at the initial stage on what work will need to be carried out at your Kingswood property. Any renovation work to run alongside property conversions and extensions will be factored in at the earliest opportunity.
