The clients loved the original home and its location. Jetcharm had done numerous other work for these clients and their family and friends so when they decided to add another storey to their home they were keen to work with Jetcharm again.
Due to the age and nature of this property it was very hard to estimate the extent of remedial works required to the existing structure so both parties agreed to carry out the work on a cost plus basis. This proved to be a good decision as extensive extra work was requested and able to be carried out immediately without the need for time consuming paperwork.
The benefits of having the clients living onsite is that as issues arose decisions were made then and there due to the owners having an in-depth knowledge of the issues. Ultimately this meant work progressed quickly and smoothly.
