Layer de la Haye, Essex - September 2015

This was a large timber framed extension and renovation of a 1950's 2 bed bungalow which we began in Setpember 2015 and completed in January 2016. Given the age of the original dwelling we faced a few challenges with the roofline being out of level and the bungalow itself not quite square. We helped this client to create a beautiful 3 bedroom home incorporating a new ensuite and walk in wardrobe plus a large glazed open plan living space with kitchen and diner plus a new porch to the front of the house to give it more 'wow'. The client's review can be seen below.

“We would not hesitate in recommending Sapphire Builders to future customers;
 hassle free and a great experience for us”

Tara Scott-Sowter

'We were very nervous as first time renovators. Paul and his team supported us every step of the way from an open and honest kick off meeting at the start - helping to set our expectations, to reassurance throughout the whole process.


The team were fantastic, tidy and friendly. All work was completed on time and they even incorporated a few last minute changes (skylights and a wall move), each time giving their expert advice on how best to proceed.


They really became part of the family and were missed when the build came to an end. Even our neighbours were impressed with the speed and consideration given to them (the neighbours had a bad experience on a previous build).


Paul managed the whole project for us and I would recommend this, he worked with our own tradesmen as well as sourcing specialists such as electricians, plumbers and roofers etc, all qualified to the highest standards.


We would not hesitate in recommending Sapphire Builders to future customers - a hassle free and a great experience for us.


Well done team!'

"The entire Sapphire Team were helpful, polite and friendly and we are very satisfied with the end result"

Claire Self

'Paul and his team converted our loft into a master bedroom and ensuite. The standard of work carried out was excellent and the quality of materials used were all of a high standard. They had a "near enough is not good enough" attitude and only settled for perfection.


Whenever I had a query, whatever day of the week or time of the day I always felt I could ring Paul or Simon. I was never made to feel a burden and they were always happy to help. Along the way we felt all the decisions made were in our best interest and we had full trust in all the advice they gave us.  The entire Sapphire builders team were helpful, polite and friendly and we are very satisfied with the end result. 


If someone asked me to recommend a builder I would have no hesitation in saying; "Stock up on tea bags and give Sapphire builders a call!" '
