Couple who lost thousands from building firms collapsing turn to EYG to complete dream home

A Hessle family who twice fell victim to building companies who went bankrupt – losing money both times – are finally getting their dream home extension after EYG completed their transformation project.

Darren Kendrew, a training manager, handed over £3,500 deposit for a new flat roof extension to a Hull building company last year, only for the business to go into liquidation. A seocnd one was paid £8,000 and also went bust.

 

Why did they choose EYG?

Mr Kendrew was impressed with EYG's 50-year track record and trusted us to complete the job.

Having now less money to spend on what he initially wanted, he scaled back the project and yet remains thrilled with what EYG was able to build within his budget.

Mr Kendrew, who lives in Hessle, east Yorkshire, was still able to have his old, draughty conservatory removed, but instead of the original flat roof extension with lantern roof he had wanted, our Hull sales manager Jeremy recommended a new conservatory rather than a more costly full brick extension, which used the existing footings.

He also recommended a solid tiled ‘Hybrid’ roof, insulated walls and flooring, and cladding on the outside of the conservatory to give it the appearance and energy efficiency of an extension.

EYG’s bricklayers removed an existing wall to open up the kitchen and levelled the floor between the kitchen and new conservatory, to create one free-flowing space, which is now the hub of the home, as a kitchen and living room.

What did they think of the work?

The work took ten days to complete and Mr Kendrew said he is thrilled with the finished result.

“It will make a big impact on our family life,” he said.

“It has been brilliant dealing with EYG, given what we went through, they stepped in at a time when we were beginning to think it was never going to happen.”
