“Forrester builders were selected based on reviews posted on myworkman, but found that work wasn't carried out within the timescales allocated, and we had to keep checking on the quality of work thus a few visits to complete what should have been a fairly straightforward job.”

“I was very pleased and impressed with the work - a very high standard of craftsmanship. The job was done in good time and pretty much on quote. Whilst there are cheaper contractors out there, I would reccomend Foressters over any of them - Hylton and his people are honest, polite, hard working and dedicated.I will definitely use them again.”

Load bearing walls are the external walls and the wall that the floors and roof are loaded down onto.it can also be the wall if removed it would affect the upper floors and spand of the floor joists.
Yes it is for the work on the quote. they can be ajustment to the quote if un for seen areas for example. digging foundations into clay and the building control states we need to dig another 50cm that my cost more in skips and labour. if this si the case it should be writen on the quote.
Yes. if the upper wall and chimney breast is supported with a steel beam or gallows breakets. with building control agreement.
No. the timber floor is flexable. it will be bouncing under the chimney breast and will cause some movement.
No. it is a permitted developemnt. but you need to inform building control and do a party wall agreement.
