Charles Grosvenor Ltd offer a helping hand to Dominic & Melinda and help fight those Cowboy Builders!


A few weeks ago our company was approached by the producers of the channel 5 show ‘Cowboy Builders’. The new series of the show to be aired sometime next year will feature a family from Cardiff who have been a victim of a ‘cowboy builder’ when they hired a firm to convert their loft space. The channel 5 show approached us to ask if we would kindly supply & fit a bespoke staircase, of course we siad yes and our staircase surveyor has been out to site to carry out the survey. The staircase will be manufactured over the next few days ready to be fitted on their request.

Having seen the damage a ‘cowboy’ can do to a family home, we would again urge all those considering a loft conversion or any other building work to fully invesitage the construction company that they wish to appoint. There are lots of companies out there who claim to offer better prices or quicker builds and usually they come with a charming sales person but please do not be fooled easily and make sure that you investigate the company as much as possible. We would advise that you ask to see a credit report and make sure you go and see some completed projects in order to view quality of workmanship and speak to some of the companies previous customers.

We have been delighted that we can help restore this families home and we will blog again shortly with an update on how the project is progressing. The episode will be featured in Cowboy Builders Series 6 which will be aired on channel 5 next year, as soon as we have confirmed dates we will let you know.
