We like to have an ongoing relationship with our clients, often going back for their next project.
This is what they say about their Portfolio Experience.
Communication throughout the five month project was faultless and Keith’s commitment and meticulous attention to detail was exceptional. From the start of the building work, the co-ordination of the numerous services was seamless. The detailed budget that was supplied and agreed before the work commenced was achieved, with a high standard of workmanship and skills at every level and stage of the development. We have no hesitation in recommending Keith, his skilled and friendly team and the whole Portfolio Experience!
"We have just undertaken an extensive renovation and extension on an older bungalow. We chose Keith and the Portfolio Experience team as from day one we were impressed by their professionalism and friendly manner. Throughout the project there was excellent communication by phone and email as well as regular visits to update us on the progress. We are very happy with the quality of work both externally and internally."
"We are delighted with our Portfolio experience and would highly recommend Keith and his team, it was based on a recommendation given to us that we originally approached Keith.
Keith brought his own great design vision to our project along with a patient and practical approach that helped make our own design ideas feasible. The whole Portfolio team are friendly, extremely competent, tidy workers and have a passion for making sure the finish is spot on – all of which has given us a really high quality end result.
Keith provided clear and detailed information on the scope of work and associated cost. He gave us sound advice on options and had a fair and transparent approach when dealing with changes/additions. He also kept us well informed on progress made and the upcoming schedule.
Our development involved 3 parts:
Demolishing a derelict double garage and clearing a wilderness Garden, which was replaced with a cedar clad Garden Room (including kitchen area and shower room), a large decked area, a new garden and double driveway.
Conversion of an outbuilding (formally outside toilet and wash house) to a home office.
Developing a tired looking back yard area into a clean, modern and practical outside space – the same treatment was also given to the front garden.
Although these were effectively separate projects they all needed to hang together for us in terms of the overall cost, planning overlapping works efficiently and each part complementing the other visually - Portfolio were perfect for our scenario.
Elements of our project evolved as we progressed, this was inevitable for what we were undertaking. The changes we made along the way were all discussed openly and were well considered, we are delighted with the additional item; for example the garden lighting – this wasn’t something we originally thought of but it has made huge difference to the evening view from our Garden room/decking.
Even with elements that Portfolio don’t undertake themselves (like plant selecting and planting), Keith was able to recommend great people to us who we used and are also really pleased with.
"I would like to thank Keith and Rob and all associated with Portfolio for the terrific Job on the supply and fit of my New kitchen.
I must say the coordination and planning was excellent, as you converted the whole of the rear of the house , 3 rooms and converted it into one magnificent kitchen area.
The guidance on what was possible and what was available was good and as we changed and altered and added to the requirement it was seamless.
"The quality of the Kitchen, from Floor Tiles to Wall Re-structure, the changes to the inner room shape, to the Wall Tiling, the Bi folding Doors and not least of all the quality of the Cabinets and Doors (with feature Lighting) - was First Rate.
Once again thank you for a Job well Done."
We were first introduced to Portfolio by Zoran, our architect at Fuzed.
Our house wasn't working for us and we decided to extend the kitchen into the existing dining room, plus replace the litte used conservatory with an extension (with a solid roof).
We were impressed from the start, in particular when Keith brought the Project Manager, Scott, to the first meeting. The idea that someone else would project manage everything was one of the deciding factors, and we felt comfortable with Scott from the start.
The entire team at Portfolio was excellent from day one, consulting us, guiding us throughout the whole project. Dave the electrician also provided good ideas and worked closely with us to get the perfect lighting.
We are delighted with the end result and now have a home that fits with our lifestyle.
We all wanted to Thank you for the fantastic job you have done in transforming an old and tired restaurant into the amazing new and modern one it is now.
You and Shaun have gone above and beyond and the team that have contributed to it have been fantastic – you should be very proud.
We shall miss you all being around but hopefully see you relaxing and having a bite to eat and a glass of vino or two in the restaurant! – and not forgetting phase 2 of the project!
Both my wife and I would like to say how please we are with our new solid roof conservatory that has replaced our old conservatory.
Andy and Adam are great guys and didn’t complain too much about the weather up at our house or the journey on the M62! Andy also kept us entertained with his jokes!
When Andy initially came to give us a quote he suggested a few ideas and we followed his advice with great results. During the cold spells the conservatory has been incredibly warm and we have spent quite a lot of time in it, which, because of the cold, would have never happened with our previous conservatory. In addition, because of the solid roof and two velux windows in the roof to let heat out we are now looking forward to sitting in it in the summer which again would not have happened with our previous conservatory due to the heat coming through the glass roof.
During the construction of the conservatory our original laminate flooring was damaged, but it was replaced with no argument. The work was done to an excellent standard at a great price and we have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone.
From a range of four building companies that quoted to build the extension we made what proved to be an excellent and important decision in choosing Portfolio. The guidance and advice given by Keith was first class in every respect. Nothing was too much trouble and he was involved in the build from beginning to completion.
The Portfolio tradesmen, in the main Scott and Craig were highly competent and professional. Always keeping us aware of what they were going to do and when, during every stage of the build, never once letting us down. They were neat and tidy and considerate in everything they undertook. They worked through some appalling conditions during February when the build commenced never stopping or complaining, they just got on with it with a smile. Two excellent lads who it was a pleasure to have around.
To say I would highly recommend Portfolio and its team would be a great understatement.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the superb job you & Adam did tiling our Conservatory roof. Very professional, prompt time keeping, thorough on the job & a willingness to please the customer.
It’s by far surpassed our expectations & looks tremendous. During these hot summer days we no longer get a sauna like heat & we’re looking forward to the winter when I’m sure it’ll be less of a fridge! It’s also peaceful – the sound of the rain no longer disturbing us.
The finishing touches inside of a smooth plastered ceiling, lights & white edge trim, finish off the interior of the Conservatory.
Very happy customers & pleased to recommend.
Thankyou for all you have done for us, it is very much appreciated. Your guys are brilliant & now finally we can start loving our home again.
Job well done
