  • Mr J Dyson - Wandsworth SW11

    I wouldn’t necessarily say that biggest is best when it comes to deciding what basement company to use. We are just off Northcote Road (SW11) and are currently having our basement done by Estbury Basements who are a smaller company in comparison to some of them out there. The directors have a huge amount of experience with big companies but set up Estbury a four years ago and have gone from strength to strength through word of mouth and recommendations...

    With the cost of moving so high and stamp duty more and more people are extending their properties rather than moving. We find that many people looking for a basement are growing families that do not really want to leave a certain area due to schools, local amenities, & friends etc. Many of their properties have already been extended to the maximum above ground so a basement is a great option to give them all the space they require without having to move...

    I first met the two directors of Estbury, Richard Peel and Danny Preater, in the summer of 2010, having had glowing referrals from local friends. Within a few weeks of our initial meeting, the digging out stage of my basement was well underway! It was immediately apparent, and has been the case throughout our basement conversion, that they offer a uniquely hands-on and personal approach to each job...

    "It is not easy choosing a basement company… you need to place a large degree of trust in their abilities as we all value the structural integrity of our houses!! We would thoroughly recommend Estbury Basements – Danny and Richard make a great team. Danny is exceptional at understanding (and explaining!) the building process and keeps his team firmly on track, to time and budget. Richard ensures the customer experience runs very smoothly...
