“High quality product”

Written on: 01/03/2018 by 419North (1 review written)

Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. The architect’s expertise and manner inspired confidence from the start, and other staff proved similarly professional as the project progressed. An atmosphere of cheerful industriousness at the factory in Ashton-under-Lyne. Excellent liaison and communications: questions and emails always answered promptly and effectively by office staff. Very happy with the end-product… Read Full Review

“Good design service, delivered and installed on time”

Written on: 03/10/2017 by TimS1111 (1 review written)

We wanted a large rear extension with bifolds and lantern rooflights, Apropos provided an excellent and flexible design service where we could discuss and get multiple designs drafted to help us make the choice. The scheduling and delivery all went to plan and followup has been excellent for snagging items once the build was complete… Read Full Review

“Excellent customer service”

Written on: 18/09/2017 by JessieGreene129 (1 review written)

Our job was very specific (a listed house) and therefore not straight forward. The Company were helpful from the start, with multiple site visits and telephone consultations. We had to have several plans drawn up and the company were efficient with the turnaround. They kept us informed of progress and wanted to deliver earlier than planned which was a great benefit. When it came to delivery the driver was polite and helpful and the installers worked all day long on a very hot day to get the job… Read Full Review

“Superb looking extension!”

Written on: 15/09/2017

We had an idea as to what we wanted but the architect really helped us get it right. The construction is amazing quality and the new living space is changing so much about our home its brilliant. I couldn't quite manage to give 5 stars as there were some logistical challenges along the way and getting the snags sorted at the end took longer than planned but I would still recommend; because whilst those things are annoying in the moment, we'll have a great conservatory forever!… Read Full Review

“Apropos review”

Written on: 28/08/2017 by Brooke192 (1 review written)

Great service and they worked under difficult delays due to the building work and fitted in perfectly. They also came out twice to fix minor issues (small scratch and rubber seal expanding in the heat). The guy that fixed the scratch was amazing. He looked over the whole structure in case there was anything else he could fix while there and was kind, polite and just a thoroughly nice guy… Read Full Review

“Great, sleek structure”

Written on: 19/08/2017 by BusyBuilders (1 review written)

We're really pleased with the conservatory. The end result is just what we wanted and Apropos's design drawings were very accurate. The new conservatory has very much enhanced our living space and allowed beautiful, uninterrupted views to the garden. Overall, the customer service was supportive. However, it would have been useful for a member of the team so discuss more detailed options with us, such as integrated lighting, blinds and the type of glass available. We did feel that unless… Read Full Review

“Good quality and great at getting planning”

Written on: 19/06/2017 by Morrowvx17 (1 review written)

We went though planning once and were unsuccessful; we hired Apropos to go through the whole process from obtaining planning to putting up the structure. They were very patient with us as it took longer than we expected to get the project started. We were very pleased with the end results… Read Full Review

“Exactly how I Imagined!”

Written on: 02/03/2017

From sales appointment to survey to recommendation of builder, the process has gone smoothly. All staff at each stage have been knowledgable even finding other local customers and arranging viewings of their Apropos structures. I feel satisfied that the quality of the workmanship and product is of a very high standard and would not hesitate to recommend. Very happy with the efficiency and quality of the product… Read Full Review

“Service was the worst”

Written on: 03/02/2017 by lederr (1 review written)

Quality of the product is great. our experience with the service was terrible. we got completely shammed by the sales guy. He came off honest but in reality was nothing but the opposite. in order to make a decision on what we wanted to do, we needed a building estimate. He strongly recommended a builder who completely low-balled the estimate. we shouldnt have been that gullible to take that builders estimate at face value but we found him so trust worthy we did. in the end the builder quote… Read Full Review

“Conservatory adjoining Victorian property”

Written on: 13/01/2017 by 49Bird (1 review written)

The Apropos team were very professional, attentive and as accommodating to our requirements as the could be from the start. The first visit from the salesman helped confirm Apropos could manufacture a bespoke construction to our needs taking account of the varying heights and angles of the Victorian house to which it would be adjoined. Apropos liaised well with the builder of the construction's foundations to ensure there was a complete understanding as to who was responsible for certain… Read Full Review

“Glass Extension”

Written on: 09/12/2016 by Cruz140 (1 review written)

The 3 month wait for our stunning glass extension was well worth it! The outcome is as we had envisaged and more. All staff including the installation guys were very helpful and polite. Essentially the structure has enhanced my new kitchen and dining area, bringing the garden into the home as an additional room almost! All my friends and family agree with us that it is stunning… Read Full Review

Cgoodwin's Comment

Written on: 26/09/2017

Hi, Can I ask if you had to compensate for the glass by insulating the house/extension more than one usually requires? We are having an Apropos glass extension on our North West facing kitchen and 1 person has told us to have extra wide side walls to provide extra insulation. Apropos, however say this is not necessary as their glass has minimum heat loss.
Your feedback would be greatly appreciated

“New Extension”

Written on: 09/12/2016

Apropos designed and obtained planning and building regulations in addition to supplying the roof lantern and sliding doors. They also recommended the builder who was excellent. The finished product is very good and there were only a few small snagging issues. Overall I was pleased with the end result which was achieved without too much input from me. NB You do have to make sure the drawings are correct before planning and building regs are sought and it is always advisable to look at the… Read Full Review

“Living outside inside”

Written on: 08/12/2016 by Stephelaine8020 (1 review written)

We are writing this review sitting in our Apropos conservatory on a cold, frosty , Northumberland evening. It is now our favourite room in our Victorian sandstone house. It is a light and airy room which is warm in winter and brings our garden into our living space. The design is both contemporary and distinctive whilst also sympathetic to the rest of the building. Before commissioning the conservatory we visited Apropos's factory and were impressed by the excellent quality and construction… Read Full Review

We have glass on three sides and a sandstone wall on the other - there is no extra insulation and we have been amazed at the heat retention in the conservatory. In our view we would trust to Apropos 'a advice. Hope this helps.

“New Extension Sun Room”

Written on: 02/11/2016 by riflerange (1 review written)

Delighted with finished product, it oozes quality in both manufacture and appearance. From the initial site survey to the finished article was carried out in a very professional manner. The extension that we wanted was higher than the eaves of the existing house, which presented the problem of the new glass roof had to be fixed to the existing tiled sloping roof of the house. So Apropos designed special brackets so that the new structure could be attached to the existing fascia board and the… Read Full Review

“Large Extension with Bi Fold Doors”

Written on: 21/10/2016

We used Apropos to manufacture and install a bespoke system for our new extension in early 2016. This included 6 meters of Bi fold doors and 6 meters of glazing for the roof space above. We were very impressed with the sales person who took time to really understand our requirements and to look at all options without ever being 'salesy'. We own an 1880s farm house and wanted a modern kitchen/dining room extension at the rear that allowed a lot of extra light in but was also in keeping with the… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/09/2017

As far as I know we had normal cavity walls with standard insulation. It was designed by an architect, the apropos contact was also a qualified architect and we had the relevant planning certificates/inspections during the build. Contact your local planning officer who can advise on permitted development and heat loss/insulation requirements.
