“We took a long time to choose to proceed with our loft conversion however, Touchstone remained patient and supportive throughout the process. Once the decision was made we can honestly say:
The building team provided by Touchstone were first class, professional and engaging. They worked with care, consideration and provided helpful insights.
The end result is a wonderful new loft space which has already had a huge and uplifting impact on our busy family dynamics.”

“We had two contracts with Touchstone, one on the Loft conversion and one on the extension f the rear part of our three-storey townhouse. We are pleased with the quality of the work on both contracts. When we were thinking of having the loft converted, we searched for a suitable builder and were impressed by what we saw on the conversion done to a neighbour a few doors away which was also designed and built by Touchstone. Consequently, we asked them to build a two-story extension to the rear of our house after the Loft conversion was completed.
Being less than 20m from the river, they took great planning to ensure that piling and the temporary support of the house during the removal of the outer wall were done adequately to sustain the building weight. It was engineering work in a grand scale for a domestic project. We were pleased with its results.
We now have a beautiful Loft room; bright, airy and have great views overlooking the surrounding landscape. We never thought this could be possible. The extension at the back of the house is also impressive. We use it as a kitchen dinning as well as a small office overlooking the river, providing a very tranquil work environment.
As to the cost, one needs to be realistic. They are not the cheapest. You get what you paid. Paul is a reasonable guy. He runs his business like any other builder does.”

“We are a retired couple from Manchester who were looking for a small home to be near our daughter and her young family. From the moment Touchstone’s consultant entered our bungalow in headington, Oxford and started sharing his thoughts, we knew we were in the right hands. Touchstone lofts refurbished our whole home, it was rewired, a new boiler and heating system, replastered, and a new kitchen. They moved internal walls and did all decoration. We are delighted with the project management, quality of build and the bungalow is now a two floor home.”

“We inherited the property from my Father and we wanted to add value to sell on. Touchstone came to give a quote and appeared more knowledgeable and professional than the other builder who came. The wait for the works was more than we had expected but once on the job it went up quite well. My son is a surveyor and recommended Touchstone as they had great references and they are Gas Registered which is great as they did our boiler. The materials used were good quality and My son did regular check on the building works and was happy. First class from start to finish.”
