A very very professional company. Work is to an exceptionally high standard & the project was closely monitored from start to finish. We are delighted with our finished conversion & would highly recommend STAAC.

Exceptional service

"I had a loft conversion that Staac helped me get the planning permission for. They made sure the architectural design was pretty much exactly how I wanted it - I only had to make a couple of changes but Ashley came up with good alternatives. They also did the structural engineering side which made things much easier as I only had one company to deal with. They really are a one stop shop and were always available to talk to which meant my questions were answered quickly. My loft is amazing!!!"
