I live immediately next door to a house, where Crawford & Co. Construction were working for roughly nine months, carrying out extensive building work. The men worked efficiently and tidily, with as little disruption as possible to both me and other neighbours. They were extremely polite and quickly made good one or two tiles of mine that were cracked in the process of their own roof works. The house is now extremely well-presented, including new windows and an excellent paint job on woodwork. I recommend them wholeheartedly. - N.H.
Ours was a challenging and utterly miserable renovation project, which saw completion delayed by over a year. Crawford & Co. Construction was involved throughout, and despite some truly desperate moments, did not turn their backs and remained engaged. I am amazed we are able to have a laugh about how miserable it was today - in part because through some significant ups and downs, Crawford & Co. Construction saw this through to the completion of a well-constructed home that was in the end, worth all the pain. - E.T.
Stanley Crawford oversaw and worked on the renovations to my house in 2015. He was unfailingly helpful and I trusted him implicitly. Work was of a good standard and budgets adhered to. - E.W.
Crawford & Co. carried out a complete refurbishment of our Regency Grade II listed townhouse. The work involved was extensive from the top to the bottom of the house, ranging from replacing the roof to underpinning the foundations and building a kitchen extension at the back of the property. The work was all completed to a high standard and a very positive feature was that Lawrence Stanley Crawford was on site most days to discuss progress. The other positive aspect of using Crawford & Co. was that once the work began, they were on site nearly every day until it was completed. - C.G. & K.D.
I am writing to say how much I enjoyed having Crawford & Co. Construction reform my house. They were very good builders with attention to detail, as well as the 'end result'. My house has been transformed and looks wonderful now. They were always courteous and timely, and I would highly recommend using them. - S.B.
We used Crawford & Co. Construction Ltd. to completely renovate a Victorian terrace house close to Jericho in Oxford and create a state of the art, modern home within the existing Victorian shell. The building work involved expanding the property's footprint by digging out, underpinning and damp-proofing the cellar, installing stairs in a dormer window to access the attic space and re-roofing the entire property. Our primary contacts were Israr Hussain and Stanley Crawford. We had supplied our architect's drawings specifying the work to be done and they helped us turn these plans into reality in an active building phase of approximately one year. We continued to live in Germany throughout the duration of the project and made periodic visits to the property to inspect progress and fine-tune decisions. We therefore relied on Crawford & Co. to project manage the team to get the job done and had regular contact with Stanley by phone. We chose to work with Crawford & Co. based on a competitive building quote and having inspected their craftsmanship on similar renovation projects in the Oxford area. Being based overseas we valued working with an established local firm with a proven pedigree and good connections to reliable partners. We found the Crawford & Co. core team of employees and their specialist partners friendly and reliable to deal with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Crawford & Co. for residential property renovations. Indeed, if were renovating a second property in the Oxford area I would definitely use them again. - D.B. & D.B.
Crawford & Co. Construction Ltd. undertook a total renovation project on my house and I can recommend them wholeheartedly. They were involved even before the planning stage and used their extensive experience to give constructive advice on my ideas. They began the job in a timely fashion and took it through to completion with great efficiency, overcoming planning and practical hurdles with imagination and adaptability. Crawford & Co. has a very personal touch with Lawrence Stanley Crawford regularly on site and a reliable and good humoured team who managed my changes of plan with skill and flexibility. They have been fully engaged in any follow up work and I feel they have been consistently committed to the best outcome possible - I am thrilled with the result. - N.K.
