Garage Extensions

With properties ever increasing in value, people are thinking differently and now think twice about moving to a bigger house and instead think about expanding their existing residence. One option that homeowners choose is to convert their small garage into an additional bedroom or an office. We are highly skilled in the conversion of garages, with decades of experience.

Side Extensions

As with garage conversions, we've noticed that there is a bigger demand for homeowners to expand their properties before considering to move out from their homes into larger homes. We will be able to add additional rooms to your home, provided the plans that you present are compliant with building regulations and planning guidelines.

Rear Extensions

If you find that you need more space in your home and you have the capacity to add additional space to the rear of your home, whether it be solitary room, or a full-blown kitchen diner extension with glass ceilings and walls, coupled with new patio sliding doors. This is something we are able to provide for our customers.

Porches Extensions

Do you find that there isn’t enough space to store all of your coats and shoes in the hallway and the majority of the time they ‘clog-up’ the busy corridor? Why not add an external Porch to the front of your home? This will make your home more welcoming and add additional space to the storage in your home.

New, well-presented bathrooms are one of the most eye-catching and attractive parts of any house when you come to sell your property. Who doesn’t want to use a modern clean bathroom?

Along with bathrooms, you would have noticed that houses built in the last 20 years have heavily concentrated on expanding and modernising a kitchen that shows the house to its full potential and makes this a family room.

Painting & Decorating

The majority of all building work is normally finished without painting, to a ‘builders finish’, but there are occasions that a professional painter and decorator is required to complete the job. Ask us about any painting and decorating that is needed.

Not only do we provide services for general building work, we also are able to provide high-end plastering work that creates a ‘finished’ look that can be painted on.
