What we do

We are a general building company that can do any aspect of work in relation to your home.


Extensions and loft conversions

These are probably the most requested improvements people make to their homes. We can build anything from a small porch extension to a new home. We can arrange meetings with a choice of architects, all of whom I work closely with so you have peace of mind in terms of any communication worries you may have with regard to the builder and architect conversing and solving any unforeseen problems These meetings ensure you get the design you require as well as professional advice on Local Authority building regulations. Our team of carpenters have many years of experience in working in lofts and a loft conversion cam be a useful way to gain more space in your home. As with extensions we can offer advice on design as well as Building regulations. We can contact architects on your behalf if you so wish in order to get plans ready for submission to the Local Authority. We can offer a 'build only' service leaving you to decorate your home improvement or we can complete the full job leaving you the enjoyable task of furnishing your new living space. We have also undertaken 'part-builds' whereby if a customer has a specific trade eg. Plumber or electrician, we have left those jobs to the customer at their request in order to keep their costs down.

Please view examples of some of our work in the on-line gallery.


Structural repairs and alterations

We can, and have, undertaken many forms of structural repairs and alterations to customers' homes over the last 25 years in the building trade. Therefore you can be assured of accurate and professional work carried out on your home; from installing a cavity tray, to underpinning.


uPVC cladding

We can replace old soffits and fascias for new in a variety of colours and styles to suit your property or to match existing.


Conservatories and windows

I am a warranted builder and can therefore can supply and install uPVC double glazing products to your home. This could be from replacing a small window to erecting a summerhouse or conservatory or even an orangery. We use a high quality product from Germany with a 10 year guarantee that comes in a variety of styles. We will advise on fire regulations with regard to your new windows so that not only will your new windows or conservatory look amazing but more importantly, you and your family are safe as well as secure.


Driveways, paths, patios, walls and decking

With a groundworking specialist with 35+ years experience in this field it is needless to say that these types of improvements are almost 2nd nature to us. We work closely with the local stonemasons, Benton Weatherstone, to ensure that your experience when selecting the appropriate surface for your drive or patio, or brick for your wall is a positive one. It goes without saying that we adhere to building guidelines with reference to damp proof courses and are aware of all the new regulations concerning water drainage for flooding risk. We are happy to extend an already paved area on a drive or patio, matching as closely as possible to the existing as well as digging out an old front or rear garden to make space for a modern clean looking paved, decked or raised area. Equally, we can rebuild a damaged wall or take it down and build a new one.


Kitchens and bathrooms

Often the 'hub' of the house these are rooms that need a lot of thought in the planning procedure as they are often expensive rooms to regenerate and therefore we believe that you must get it right first time because it is not a job you want to re-do. Again, we can become involved in the planning of your room and can make internal modifications as necessary to accommodate your requirements. We can supply and fit your kitchen and bathroom suite or equally, we can supply only or fit only, depending on your requirements. We can advise on and supply all electrical appliances associated with these rooms and, as with extensions and conversions, we can arrange tiling and decorating or leave those jobs to you if you would prefer.


Swimming pools

With the price of swimming lessons (I understand - I have 4 boys!!) and the prospect of warmer summers!! many people are deciding to build personal pools. It is a great asset for a home to have and we are involved in every stage from planning to completion giving the customer various options around issues involving the air conditioning of the pool, to filtration, pumps, heating and different tiling options. We have also built gym rooms and shower / changing rooms alongside the pool to further enhance the pool area.


Payment

My payment terms usually follow the format of weekly payments whilst your works are in progress, leaving an outstanding balance which is payable upon completion. However with smaller works monies are usually only requested once works are complete. As a warranted builder I can also offer the Federation of Masterbuilders warranty if you require absolute peace of mind. I also undertake works requiring an insurance claim.
