Why choose Camberford Construction Ltd over our competitors in Camberley?
From day one, we’ve worked hard to build a reputation as a trusted, reliable choice for loft conversion, garage conversion and house extension work. That’s why we joined the Federation of Master Builders and enrolled in the TrustMark scheme. It’s also why we only use our own experienced builders and top-branded materials on all projects undertaken.
We’re aware of the choice that customers in Camberley have when choosing their tradesmen. That’s why we always aim to be as transparent and as upfront as possible.
Our builders insist on getting things done by the book, and our company avoids undeclared “cash in hand” work. We much prefer to offer an alternative to companies in Camberley and the surrounding areas that sometimes take advantage of their clients on house extensions, conversions and new builds, and to change perceptions of our industry for the better.
What does it take to become a member of the Federation of Master Builders?
To become a member of the FMB, you must tick all of the following boxes:
• To be in business for over a year
• To provide professional references
• To pass credit checks
• To pass public record checks
• To pass director checks
• To confirm no undischarged bankruptcies or County Court Judgements (CCJs)
• To obtain public and employer liability insurance
• To register for VAT
• To agree to the FMB’s Disputes Resolution and Complaints procedures
• To sign up to a detailed Code of Practice
Do your builders only serve homeowners around the Camberley area?
No. While homeowners might make us their preferred builder in Camberley for a loft conversion, a garage conversion or a house extension, we also serve commercial clients. We specialise in shop and gymnasium fit-outs, but also have the flexibility and knowledge to take on commercial renovations, refurbishments, soft demolitions and new builds.
Will I require planning permission for my project?
This really depends on the type of project in question. A typical loft conversion or garage conversion which doesn’t involve significant alteration to the structure of the roof, attic or garage can proceed without permission. Likewise, a house extension in Camberley which meets certain criteria relating to its dimensions might not need local authority approval.
Large-scale conversions, extensions and new builds will require planning permission.
Some loft conversions, garage conversions and house extensions require formal application so we recommend consulting with our builders and your local council first before you consider investment into any type of major home improvement work. Failure to deal with the local authority for Camberley at the earliest opportunity could delay your project.
