Reviews of Builders in Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne

We have a small attic space currently unusable which we wish to convert into storage space
Came to our house to look at converting some unusable attic space, had some good ideas and seemed interested and said he would send a quote. But over a week later no quite had come. I texted him asking when it would come but never heard back.
Knock down wall between spare room and existing bathroom to make the bedroom bigger. Remove existing bathroom, and build new bathroom out of part of the master bedroom. The wall which need knocking down is possibly structural, and the soil pipe for the toilet possibly needs moving.
I need a builder to accompany me on a viewing of the flat in question, to check whether the work is feasible and get a quote before I put in an offer.
Job was only to give an estimate, but Darren turned up on time and had various pictures of previous job to show the quality of his work. The estimate seemed to be good value for money. Unfortunately I couldn't proceed with the work but I would definitely call Darren again if I need a bathroom fitted.
We would like to extend our small brick garage to become big enough to fit a car and extras - about 1 1/2 size not double. We would like to keep the exisisting side and back wall but will need an entirely new roof and doors (and a new side wall).
The "2 week" job took nearly 3 months partly due to the randomness of when the builders turned up. Make sure you know exactly who is paying for what and be prepared for the contract to be fairly irrelevant.

There are a number of jobs I'm looking to have done by the same firm. I've just bought a 1st floor, Victorian, maisonette in Jesmond. IT needs to be double glazed throughout. We want to put a small bathroom in the attic space and also add a shower cabinet to the existing bathroom. The budget I set below is sheer guess work. I would like to arrange to get some quotes. Ideally the work would be completed by the end of May. Timing: Within 2 months
