Builders that can convert any property!

The Planning

Conversions, a good option for your home improvement

Conversions are a service carried out by Steadfast builders in Essex, aimed at increasing your property functionality by changing the purpose of one or more rooms in your property. Conversions differ from extensions because with conversions you don't create more space like with extensions, you just find a way to repurpose the already existing space. Are you considering a house conversion? For example, your kids left for college and now you have unused bedrooms, while on the other hand your living room or dining room is not big enough for your everyday needs. Or, perhaps you bought a second car while you have a space in your garage for only one and you are considering repurposing that one room that nobody uses anymore? In both cases and many others, conversions are a perfect solution for you. Steadfast builders in Essex offer a professional approach to every clients' needs for conversions.

The challenge

Conversions for various types of spaces and properties

Conversions can be successfully done for every space in your home, in case you wondered. At Steadfast builders, we carry out conversions of all types: basement conversions, garage conversions, loft conversions, and even bungalow conversions. With basement conversions, we can change your basement into a completely functional spare living space, or into space for fun or relaxing activities. Your garage can become a small studio or atelier through garage conversion. Through loft conversions, your loft can be transformed into a cozy bedroom. Possibilities for conversion don't end there, it's only a matter of our client's creativity and his vision. Your bungalows can be modernized or turned into a house through bungalow conversions. Also, your house or bungalow may increase its value on the property market after doing conversions. Steadfast builders in Essex offer creative ideas for making our clients' dreams come true.

The solution

Conversions come with many advantages

  • Conversions need less time and effort compared to extensions or buying a new property
  • Conversions don’t require special permits and permissions from the Essex authorities
  • Conversions don’t need a lot of space to be carried out
  • Conversions optimize already existing space by increasing its functionality
  • Conversions are cheaper than extensions our buying a new house

Disadvantages of conversions are minimal and few in numbers. For example, they don’t change the outward appearance of your house or other property, but that’s not the primary goal of conversions anyway. Depending on the type of conversion it will not necessarily increase your property’s value, but at Steadfast builders, we will always give our best to come up with an idea for a conversion that will increase your property’s value as much as possible. Also, a house conversion won’t increase your space as much as extensions would do, but they will offer much-increased functionality of already existing space, which can be equally good.

Martin completed some structural repairs that I was very pleased with. They were done to a very good standard and have corrected the problems we had. He also identified that the metal fire escape had been badly installed and was causing damage to both my property and my neighbours. This he corrected, also to a high standard of workmanship.

~ Nick

We have no hesitation in recommending Martin Hillstead. His work is of the highest standard. He came to completely refurbish our kitchen – putting in a new window, new floor, ceiling, worktops, wiring and new kitchen units. We were very impressed by the professionalism and care that he took. Indeed, he said that he aims to take as much care on a client's room as he would on his own house – and so he does. We were very pleased with our kitchen when it was all finished – it went from a dark and dingy room to one that was full of light and texture and was much admired by our friends.

~ Ian & Julie

When it comes to structural work, and where attention to detail is required, Martin is your man. You cannot fault his knowledge or the passion for his trade. Very reliable and very informative. Great job.

~ Mr M

We used Steadfast Structural Engineering Services Ltd in February 2017 to carry out external repair work to my property and garage. Martin, (Managing Director) spent some considerable time with us explaining the work that was needed and had some suggestions as to what we should do. He followed this up with an itemized quotation and began work. He worked within the agreed time frame and kept up good communication with us as to the progress of the jobs. Martin turned up early, worked efficiently, and always cleaned up afterward. The work he did was to a very high standard and were very happy with what he did. We would have no hesitation in recommending this company and will use them again in the future.

~ Mr & Mrs C. G

Martin, Thank you for the report. I am happy with the content. I shall forward this to my Insurers and await their reply. I shall let you know the outcome. Many thanks to you for such a prompt, helpful, and courteous service. Kind regards

~ David H

I'm really impressed by the new fence and the standard of workmanship. Excellent job! Pity you don't live closer to Harrogate. We'd recommend you for some work in Yorkshire. I am away in Manchester today so will pay the balance tomorrow when back in Harrogate. Best regards
