Reroof, install Velux windows, convert garage and install an en-suite.
This was quite a big and messy job but the quality of the finished work was excellent. Special mention has to go to Matty and Ant who reroofed the extension and garage and fitted 6 Velux windows the quality was superb – Ian the electrician who worked miracles rewiring the nightmare 1930’s electrics – Juergen the joiner who was outstanding and John the project manager who pulled a complex job together under the difficulties we all face in 2020 I would have no hesitation in recommending Jim’s team and in fact I already have!

New extension at rear of house.
Absolutely stunning job. We were told it would take six weeks and it was completed bang on time. Contracts manager made regular site vists and ensured the site was left clean and tidy. The extension is superb and has given us two beautiful new bedrooms.

Converted a storage area above the garage into a home office.
We first used Convert Your Garage about 2 years ago to convert the downstairs of our double garage into a Bathroom, Utility and Snug; they (Fraser and his team) did a fantastic job then, so we had no hesitation in asking them to back again to convert the upstairs of the garage into a Home Office. What I like about Convert Your Garage is they genuinely care about their customers e.G. They suggested ideas even through it means more hassle for them for no financial benefit. Fraser is the kind of guy you want to organise your wedding because you know if will all happen smoothly, and on time!
Customer in Warrington, September 2020
The following feedback applies to Jim himself, Gary and Stephen the groundsmen and brickworkers, Les the roofer/joiner/master of all trades, Mark the electrician and Brandon the plasterer supreme; – They arrived prompt and early each morning – The work is to the highest of standards – The surrounding property was always cleaned and tidied as the work went on – The workers were all very personable yet incredibly professional – The pre-work process with Jim was smooth with a detailed plan and quote which was worked to by the letter. Again we’re very happy with the work.

Internal Wall Knock through with internal bi-fold doors fitted.
2nd time using this builder in 12months says it all really. Very precise, reliable and really good quality. Well managed from start to finish. Jim and John (site managers) were spot on, polite and keep you informed. Ive used convertyourgarage for both our garage conversion and now some internal work, knocking through an internal wall to install bi-folding doors.. never the cheapest but always fast and reliable. you should definitely give them a go.
Customer in Manchester 10 December 2019
Internal kitchen/dinner wall knock through. Exterior wall knock through and bi-fold installation. Removal of kitchen (intact). Plumbing, Electrics, gas, joinery and plastering work. Outdoor steps built. Additional major roof repairs
Convert Your Garage (CYG) – Definitely Recommended. As an aeronautical engineer I have a keen eye for precise detail and quality. I wanted a lot of building work done on my home and I want it done right and right first time as does everyone else. To start with I got a few comparable quotes to which CYG wasn’t the cheapest but definitely won with the quality (never sacrifice quality people). All tradesmen under the CYG umbrella were top quality, punctual, courteous and available at any time for problems if encountered. This includes the boss. Well Impressed! Andrew Hoggard MEng (Hons)…

Side extension to kitchen
Really can’t recommend this builder enough, very high standard of work with excellent trades people who turn up when they say and are very polite and friendly. We are delighted with our finished job, if you are looking for someone to do your project then look no further.

Single story rear extension with vaulted ceiling.
We have been so impressed with everything about this company. All the team are easy to get hold of, professional and hard working! There wasn’t a day in the whole process where progress with the build wasn’t being made. We couldn’t believe how smoothly things ran and it made a stressful time with no kitchen and a lot of disruption much easier! We didn’t have to do any chasing up or arranging things as it was all managed by the guys on site! The quality of the work far exceeded our expectation! I really can’t speak highly enough of everyone who has been involved in the build!
Customer in Bolton 22 June 2019
Three quarters of garage converted to internal space. This new space was split in to an utility space and the remaining area an extension to the kitchen/dining area. This included removal of retaining wall.
We obtained three quotes for the works and convert your garage was the cheapest and (more importantly the least time for works to be done, up to 10 days!!). Before works started we were sceptical about the quality of work (because of the price) and the timescale (quoted more than half the time to complete than other contractors). However, the team turned up on the booked starting date and it came quickly apparent that this company was a well oiled machine. The quality of workmanship is unquestionable and we are really happy with the finish. They actually finished in seven days, so even less disruption.

“The house needed an update, so was recommended to go with Jimmy from Convert your Garage. From the first meeting with Jimmy, he listened to what I wanted and believe me I got exactly what I wanted and more. It was finished to a very high standard. The lads turned up every morning at 7:30, on the dot and believe me they can put a shift in. I would just like to thank all involved in my project, and for keeping the mess to a minimum. I would highly recommend this company to all my friends and family. Thanks again to Jimmy, Joanne and the teams,

Extension to rear
“Date agreed approx 2 months prior to build and started on exact date! Took 6 weeks as estimated ( actually finished 2 days early )! High quality workmanship, all work finished to high standard. All builders very professional. Honest and friendly builders ( left alone in house ). Manager and other workers contactable throughout. Price came in under the quote due to not having all work quoted for but also had other extra bits done. Very pleasing company to deal with … can’t wait to get my furniture in now! Highly recommend!!!!!!”

“Excellent work – quicker than we thought, and all within budget. All the team are very knowledgeable about the job as a whole (not just their bit). Communication with the company was excellent and the standard of work was really high-end. Just as importantly, all the crew were friendly, helpful, polite and very tidy – makes a HUGE difference to the stress-levels of a project in a family home – this is probably one of the biggest recommendations from us!

Stretford annex block paving and soffit and fascias
Over a number of years i have used many builders and with hand on heart i can truthfully say that Jim and his team have been the best builders i have employed and i wish i had known a company as good as his and saved my self a lot of hassle over the years. When i decided to convert my garage the thought of finding a builder filled me with nothing but dread, so when i started searching i was pleasantly suprised when i came across Jim’s company. The company wasn’t the dearest nor the cheapest but from his initial visit and receiving the quote and the outline of what was to be done i knew his was the company i would use. The garage needed to be converted for my mother in law who had a stroke and didn’t want to go into a home. She now has her own sitting room bedroom and wet room and she loves it.
I would just like to say to Jim and the lads thankyou for a great job you were always clean tidy promptand never let me down.

What started out as a Garage Conversion turned into so much more!
When Jim first visited to discuss converting our garage, it was clear that he is very enthusiastic about what he does and more importantly very knowledgeable about what we wanted to achieve with our garage. This was reflected in a competitive price, detailed quote and excellent lead time for completing the job.
The work on the garage moved along quickly, efficiently and cleanly, which led to us asking for more quotes on other work we wanted doing – a conservatory, new windows, drive extension, relaying of the patio, sand-blasting of the house! Again, all of the quotes were competitive and completed quickly and efficiently, in fact all of the work was completed in 3 weeks – which included a long bank holiday and a few days of bad weather!
Jim has been more than helpful in sorting out any small issues we’ve had since the work was completed. We’ll definitely make sure Jim’s first in line to quote when we add a second storey to our garage.
Big thank you to Jim and team – we would recommend Convert Your Property wholeheartedly.
Rich & Kelly Galtrey
We were recommended Convert Your Property by a friend and were initially impressed with the response to our enquiry and the quotation received.Once a price had been agreed, the work proceeded as scheduled and we were kept informed on a daily basis as to the progress and what materials/work would be undertaken the following day. There were a couple of problems along the way,however they were corrected swiftly and at no further expence to ourselves. The agreed work was completed on time and on budget [no nasty surprises!] and there was no problem getting they to return to sort out any snags. The quality of the workmanship is to a good standard and would recommend them to others and certainly we would use them again.

Totally professional from start to finish. Jim gave us confidence with his straight and no messing approach, he certainly understood what we needed and offered a competitive price. The guys doing the work were simply brilliant. Turned up sharp and early working tirelessly to get the work done. Courteous and friendly, they took full pride in their work.
Everything was covered exactly as we had asked and we could not believe the high standard of quality of work completed within the timescales it took to finish the job. Even the neighbours keep coming round to look! More than recommend the team if anyone is looking for them to do a job. Top work lads… Well done.
Mr and Mrs Hodges, Farnworth – August 2017
What a fantastic experience!!!!
I contacted Jimbo in in February to quote for a garage conversion, Jimbo attended and gave a thorough quote detailing all the works that were going to be done and at a price that was very reasonable, we did not get another quote, we didn’t need to you just know when everything will be done how you want it by the person you would want to do it!!
Jimbo and his team started the work as agreed in early May, I was concerned that we were due to go away on holiday at the end of the week as to whether it would be completed on time, when Jimbo heard this he assured me that everything would be completed before I went away so I would not have to worry about it, Jimbo and his team worked really hard and often late into the evening to ensure hat it was completed, 4 days instead of 7 and all done before I went away.
I expected some level of inconvenience over the days the job was completed but have to say this was painless, Jimbo and the team are always tidy, completely trustworthy( I left them my house keys all week) great to have around and kept us completely updated all week as to what was happening, nothing was to much trouble even when we asked for additional things to be done Jimbo ensured these were done.
The end result……..We are absolutely delighted, the standard of work is fantastic and totally exceeds our expectations…..My advice DO NOT get anyone else to do your work, you may have to wait, but it’s worth it……what QUALITY building team can you get at a minutes notice anyway!!!!!!
Sean Heenan – May 17
I was really impressed with Jim’s service from the moment I met him. He offered a very competitive price with extras included. The work was completed within 4 days, he was incredibly organised as a project manager and any concerns I had were dealt with swiftly and in a professional manner. I would definitely recommend Jim and his team to anyone in future.

From: Martin and Jackie Holland – February 2016
First up, cheers for a job started and finished on time. That’s easy. what’s harder is saying how pleased we are without sounding like we’ve been bribed. we haven’t, but if you want to, then go ahead! From the first meeting, to the final ’ta-da!’, it’s been a pleasure to have you and the team work for us.
Initial consultation and estimate service was easy and helpful and I liked that you discussed pros and cons of both the potential ideas we had and were honest about which was easier for you, before agreeing to do the other.
We went with an extension to the front of the garage, freeing up space behind, which has now become a much needed study. The room is perfect and the velux roof provides so much light and airiness.
We left the house open and accessible every day, with complete faith in all who worked. we weren’t disappointed. I took to popping home at lunchtimes, just so I could marvel at the speed, effort and professionalism with which the job was undertaken.
Any minor problems were raised with us, very quickly and didn’t affect the agreed price, with the final building looking really good. I can’t wait to move my new furniture into it.
We shall all really miss your team leader, who turned up before first light on the nastiest and coldest of January mornings and got stuck in to his work with relish and professionalism. He was still there, well after 5 each evening, doing the same.
A few years ago, we were badly stung by another builder. Jim understodd some of our reticence about the whole project and went out of his way to reassure and discuss prior to commencement.
Once the work was underway, he didn’t really need to – we could see for ourselves. From talking to the lads, I know they place great value on their ’one job at a time’ mantra. This means for the week (or in the case of us, with building work too, fortnight) they are with you, they are with you. Working for you and with you to deliver the room you want.
Would we recommend – Wholeheartedly.
Will we use them again – oh yes! Saving up to get the kitchen flat roof converted to a pitched one already!!
A building firm that actually do what it says on the tin, at the time they say they’ll do it and the price they say they’ll do it – Priceless!
As promised here is our testimonial;
A big thank you to Jim & all the team. They were friendly, efficient and nothing was too much trouble. The work was carried out in record time to a very high standard, and we are so pleased with our garage conversion. We would definitely recommend Convert Your Property.
Once again, a big thank you & we’ll see you tomorrow with the balance!
