  • grade 2 listed period property oak frame rebuild

    10Verified Review

    I highly recommend Karl Alaniz and his team from Lichfield Spires. Their expertise and experience were obvious to see from the outset. We are very thankful for the manner in which Karl navigated the rather demanding planning conditions for our Grade 2 listed property. They were so efficient and made the entire work such a hassle-free experience despite its complexity. The quality in which they rebuilt the timber frame is exceptional and to the highest standard. We are so pleased with the final structure. I found Lichfield Spires through a friend and will certainly pass on the recommendation.

    Karl has organised a few projects for me now - bathrooms, kitchen and now bedrooms. Once he works with you, you won't go anywhere else! Honestly. Not only is he so skilled at what he does and is incredibly organised and enthusiastic , but he is is also a great person to work with. It was a pleasure to have him and Ollie doing another beautiful piece of work to our old cottage. I am genuinely grateful that I had no worries during the work as I knew I would get a quality job! Keep up the outstanding work!

    10Verified Review

    Working with Karl, founder of Lichfield Spires, has genuinely reignited my faith in the building industry. My husband and I have worked in property development for many years and have been a bit let down of late. I am so grateful that Karl was recently recommended to us. Not only did he turn the whole project around in 18 days, he was meticulous to detail, and was helpfully sending me little daily reminders of things we needed to order/buy this end to keep the project moving along as quickly as possible. Would wholeheartedly recommend. Excited to find a new project to work on with Karl.

    They were super tidy and considerate and did the work on time and coped with some last minute changes to the scope.

  • Demolition of an old 1950s pre-fabricated garage

    10Verified Review

    Karl was great. He and his mate Ollie came with all the necessary equipment and they worked super hard to get the building down and in the skip in less time than anticipated. They also fixed a few boards to my old wood store free of charge to make it watertight.

    Karl and Oli carried out the work to the very highest standard with superb professionalism and meticulous attention to detail. They were a pleasure to have around, and I firmly believe that if you want the very best builder available, you should look no further than Litchfield Spires Development
