We write this letter in recommendation of Adrian Williams as building contractors. We had the pleasure of working with Mr Williams on the renovation of our hallway, stairs and landing from October to December 2014. We can recommend him highly and without reservation.
From the initial meeting where he carried out a survey for the work to be done, he came up with innovative ideas and suggestions which only enhanced the final look of the new hallway and stairs refurbishment.
Throughout the course of the renovation, they were consummate professionals. They were accurate in their initial assessment of the scale and cost of our project. They chose and managed the sub-contractors as well, which ensured that all the work carried out was of a high standard.
Our job was done with care and precision. In addition, they were extremely clean and tidy in the workplace.
We have no hesitation in using the services of Mr Williams in the future.
Remove old bannisters and replace with glass ones
This has been a fabulous job done by Adrian and Sam not only have they removed old bannister and replaced with an oak and glass one but have laid oak floors throughout the downstairs of the house.
Their workmanship has been second to none with such an eye for detail and finishing touches and would not hesitate to recommend them as a company or have them return for any future jobs, many thanks again Devon Oak Interiors.
Engineered Oak installation in Sitting Room, Yelverton
Adrian exceeded my expectations regarding the quality of work and he was professional, reliable and helpful.
We have had a loft conversion with Devon Oak, they were very professional. We live in a bungalow and we didn’t realise how much more room we could have. Adrian has really good ideas that really helped make the most of the space. The team were all excellent and kept everything really clean. It exceeded our expectations and I would be happy to recommend them to anyone.
extention behind garage and to the side of the house
We initially started out with plans to add an additional room to our house, but these plans grew to a side extension. Adrian and Chris came to discuss ideas with us a few times at the start. They were both very informative and helpful in the advise given.
We had a few issues at the start of the building which they found solutions for. We lived in the house during the work and they made sure the disruption to us was as minimal as possible. In fact the whole trade team used were great!
Having never had work carried out like this before we were very nervous about who we would use and we're really pleased we decided to go with Adrian and Chris. We are delighted with the end results and have had many people compliment the house - thank you to all involved.
I have some experience in renovating properties in both England and Switzerland, and have just completed a project in Calstock with Adrian Williams of Devon Oak. I can honestly say Adrian has been the most skilled and knowledgeable builder I have had the pleasure of working with. I recommend him highly and without reservation.
Due to personal circumstances, I was unable to visit the site as often as planned, but Adrian kept me informed, sent pictures and consulted me at every stage. He was accurate in his initial assessment and the scale and cost of the project. I trust him implicitly. He took on board all my suggestions, had endless patience when I said “I've had an idea" and was flexible. The work was carried out with care and precision, the attention to detail is amazing. I thank him and the team for making the house a beautiful home.
Garage Conversion Conversions
Adrian and the whole team were completely fantastic! Their workmanship is of an excellent standard. They are also tidy and reliable workers. They even put right a couple of our DIY disasters for us! :)
We can't praise them enough and we've already got them booked in for 2 more jobs!
Loft Conversion with hip to gable extension
We have been really happy and impressed with Adrian and his team for the work they have done on this project. It is the largest building job we have been involved with and Adrian was extremely good at managing everything onsite.
The quality of work was extremely high and he takes genuine pride in what he and his team do. He was very reliable and flexible and extremely reasonable when it comes to discussing amendments and changes to the drawings being upfront with any additional costs that may be incurred. We have recommended him to our friends who have building work that they would like done and will continue to do so as we have a very lovely new space created by Adrian and his team. Thanks very much!
Convert downstairs kitchen to bathroom.
We hired Adrian to convert and old dining room and kitchen into a new large kitchen and bathroom. We are absolutely delighted with his work and would recommend him to anyone. He is a very skilled carpenter and builder and he worked very hard through some pretty big problems to produce a lovely kitchen/diner and bathroom for us. I would have him back to do more work for us at any time. Thank you so much Adrian.
Garage Conversion Conversions – General
We hired Adrian to complete a garage conversion as we wanted to convert this space into an office. Considering it was quite a big job we were pleasantly surprised at how well the whole process went and overall we are very happy with the work that was carried out by Adrian and his team.
I was taken back a bit when Adrian stated that he would be starting work each day at 7.30am and thought that the likelihood would be that they would show up later in the morning, but true to his word his team showed up on time and grafted all day.
When I say grafted, I mean proper grafted! I hardly saw them take a break and I was surprised at the speed in which they were able to complete the jobs and on inspection I could see that everything was done to a very high standard.
The tradesmen that he brought with him were all very competent and experienced within their trade and together the job was completed in just 2 days. I would have no hesitation in recommending Adrian and would happily hire him again. His pricing was very competitive, he worked very hard and has a great attention to detail.
Supply and fit a pagola to cover a hot tub Carpentry
Extremely professional work undertaken when promised, to a very high standard with a friendly attitude. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was left tidy at the end of each day. Highly recommended!!
Reconstruct stairs Carpentry
I hired Adrian to replace a stairway that was originally right angled to a straight set. Adrian was punctual & a very conscientious worker, I cannot fault the job he did for me & am very pleased with the finished work. He was helpful & discussed each stage giving advice & choices with candour.
The pricing of the job was fair & competitive & Adrian was a friendly & easy person. I would happily hire him again & recommend him to friends & family.
Single story extension Carpentry
Adrian Williams recently completed work on a single storey extension to the side of our house in Plymstock. This included a new shower room, guest bedroom, utility and a garden room. There is a flat GRP roof with two roof skylights and the exterior is clad with beautiful Siberian larch. We had some difficult experiences with builders in the past so we were a little apprehensive about work starting. However, from start to finish we have been very pleasantly surprised.
As soon as construction began it was clear that everyone who came on site was experienced and competent in their trade. It was also clear that Adrian, as well as being an excellent project manager, is also a dedicated craftsman who displays commendable care and concern for the quality of the work done. When issues arose which required decisions, Adrian was patient and helpful.
Not only highly knowledgeable in practical matters but he also showed thoughtful and unusual understanding of aesthetic issues. His team were reliable, arriving regularly, on time and kept us well-informed about progress of the work.
They also showed patience, taking time to fully explain and discuss any issue or detail, revising plans and sometimes redoing work where needed. Work was organised wherever practical to minimise the impact or inconvenience to our normal family life and to our neighbours.
We felt that our concerns were taken seriously and that our satisfaction was always their priority. We are pleased with the professional way in which the work progressed and with the finished job which has mostly exceeded our expectations. Many of our neighbours have remarked on how good the finished job looks. I would not have the slightest hesitation in recommending Adrian Williams.
Garden entrances Carpentry
Devon Oak Interiors completed a wonderful project for us that involved designing and building a garden entrance and two beautiful bespoke Iroko wood doors. They took great care to make sure that the design was in keeping with our Victorian house and their workmanship was simply first class. They did an outstanding job and we can unreservedly recommend them.
Refurbishment work Carpentry
“We were very fortunate to receive a recommendation for Adrian & Steve to carry out work on our bathroom. We have been absolutely delighted with the work that they have done for us, their attention to detail has been excellent.
After being so impressed with what was initially just the bathroom, we then asked them to do other work in our house. All of which has been to an exceptional standard. They also made suggestions and recommendations to which we were grateful.
We will definitely be requesting their services again in the future and will happily recommend them to our friends as well”.
