Customer feedback is a great way to judge a product and the service of company, to this end we speak to A. Miller about their experience of buying a Room4-you garden room:
When did you buy your garden room, office or studio?
What were your requirements for your garden room, office or studio?
I required an annex for Granny. It should have a lounge with mini kitchen, bedroom and wet room. It must be well insulated and low in heating costs. All lighting should be LED.
Did you look at other sorts of home extension before settling on a garden room? Why did you choose a garden room over other type of extension?
I looked at many other buildings, not many were bespoke and within my budget. Traditional brick and mortar was not a consideration, in order to meet, cost, time, thermal factors and planning for my site, which is in a designated conservation area. Most other buildings appear to be nothing more than garden sheds, made to look like something else, like a Wendy house. The quality of such was below poor.
What made you choose your garden room, office or studio supplier?
They were interested from the start. I had frank and sales ‘waffle free’ discussions. They wanted the business and were eager to provide to my specification, if not beyond it.
Does your garden room, office, studio fulfil its intended use?
Is your garden room, office, studio comfortable to use all year round?
Definitely. It is a modern contemporary design and due to its thermal properties, it maintains a good constant temperature, without any heating at all!
Do you have heating or cooling systems, were they supplied with your building or did you add them at a later date?
Heating as specified and supplied at build time. Hardly used to date.
How long did your garden room, office or studio take to build on site, was it straight forward?
Very straight forward. From start to finish, excluding planning wait time, it took abound 6 weeks.
Would you have done anything different ie specified different materials, altered the design etc?
Not at all.
If you could give a prospective customer a piece of advice what would it be?
Pay a bit more and get the job done properly. Don’t cut corners and get good quality fittings and high specification insulation. Oh, and don’t employ a traditional builder.
Good advice! For more information about Room4-you garden rooms visit their website
