Here is a selection of some of the projects we have undertaken:


Loft Conversion
Location: Romford, Essex
Works: One of our recent projects was a loft conversion on a semi-detached house. This project involved removal of the existing hip roof structure and in it's place we constructed a new roof structure with a large dormer to the rear, installed Velux windows to the new front roof structure and constructed brickwork to the side elevation.
The loft conversion added a new master bedroom with an en-suite wet room to the property and the eaves to the front of the loft were boarded across the full width of the property to provide maximum storage space.


External Redecoraton

Location: Anstey, Hertfordshire
Works: Having previously redecorated the exterior of this property in 2005, in 2011 the property owner instructed us to redecorate the woodwork to the property to encompass windows, doors, weatherboarding, the porch, fascias and soffits . To achieve a high quality and long lasting finish, as with the work carried out in 2005, this decoration work involved undertaking Repaircare repairs to any damaged timber, thorough preparation to all the woodwork - including cleaning down surfaces, removal of loose / flaking paint, sanding down, apply knotting solution where required, filling any gaps and holes, and applying preservative primer to any bare wood - prior to applying the top coats of colour paint.

Single Storey Side and Rear Extension

Location: Romford, Essex
Works: Having previously undertaken works at this property including chimney removal and a new roof to the property, the owners invited us to estimate for the proposed extensions they wanted to add to the property to provide a large open plan kitchen, diner and living space.
Following the clients acceptance of our estimate, we undertook this project which involved the removal of the existing lean to type extension, removal of the existing garage and construction of a single storey side and rear extension to the existing property and construction of a new garage.
Inside the new extension we installed plumbing, heating, electrics, a new kitchen, windows and French doors leading in to the garden.
We also installed acoustic insulation in the existing kitchen in the property and converted it in to a utility room.

Modernisation of a Shower Room

Location: North Chingford, London
Works: Having previously undertaken work for this client we were called upon to modernise the shower room of this property.
The existing toilet, square shower cubicle and basin were removed but the existing boiler was to be retained in this room.
Due to damp penetration and historic woodworm damage in the timbers of the ceiling of this room the works involved removal of the existing water/woodworm damaged timbers, supporting of the first floor ceiling to avoid disturbance of flooring and finishes above and installation of new ceiling timbers.
The floor to the room was treated with a damp proofing agent.
The walls to the room were stripped back to brickwork and were covered with tile backer board to provide a straight and flat surface for the new wall tiles.
In order to modernise the room the boiler was enclosed in a purpose built cupboard and the toilet was replaced with a concealed WC cistern. The shower was upgraded to a rectangular full room width shower enclosure and a new basin, toilet and heated towel rail were installed to complete the new suite. New tiles were fitted to the walls and the floor of the shower room and the floor tiles were continued in to the adjacent hallway floor outside the shower room.

New Bathroom Suite

Location: Romford, Essex
Works: Having previously installed an en-suite shower room for this client, we were asked to install a new main bathroom suite.
The works involved removal of the complete existing bathroom suite, adapting the plumbing in the room to suit the new bathroom layout as required by the client, and changing the opening side of the bathroom door and position of the light to suit the new layout. We then installed a complete new bathroom suite including a whirlpool bath, over bath shower regulator, concealed cistern WC, basin, heated towel rail and bathroom furniture.
The room was fully tiled to complete the modernised bathroom.

Extension and Refurbishment

Location: Hammersmith, London
Works: This project involved the strip out, refurbishment and extension of the existing one bedroom ground floor flat to create a modern two bedroom property.
The works involved the strip out of the existing bathroom suite and separate WC in the property along with the walls dividing the WC and bathroom. New walls were built to create a larger bathroom with the WC and bathroom suite within one room. The new bathroom was fully tiled and modernised.
The existing kitchen was removed and we undertook the construction of a new single storey extension at the rear of the property to create a new kitchen space. The roof to the new extension was fitted with a large roof light to maximise light in to the new kitchen. In the new extension we installed plumbing, electrics, new kitchen units and appliances and French doors leading in to the garden.
The previous kitchen in the property was refurbished to become a sitting room and the previous sitting room was refurbished to become a second bedroom.
Throughout the property we fitted solid oak flooring, new skirting boards, modernised electrical fittings, installed new windows in the new sitting room and bathroom to match the rest of the property, and decorated the complete property.
In the garden we installed timber decking and custom made fencing to create a modern private outdoor garden area.

En-Suite Shower Room

Location: Romford, Essex
Works: This project involved the creation of an en-suite shower room in the master bedroom of a three bedroom terraced house.
The existing wardrobes in the master bedroom were removed and in their place the walls for the en-suite shower room were built. We installed a shower enclosure, towel warmer and compact basin and WC all within the compact yet effective en-suite.

Reception Room Dividing Doors

Location: Gidea Park, Essex
Works: This project involved the installation of bi-folding internal doors to create a divide between the front and rear reception rooms.
The opening between the two reception rooms had been created by the previous owners of the property, the current owners wanted to create a way to divide the two rooms but also maintain the possibility of opening the rooms as one large space without large doors intruding in to the space.
The clients selected bi-folding doors which can be closed to separate the two reception rooms and can also be fully opened and folded back to one side to create one large reception area when required.


Conversion of 1 No. Bedroom in to 2 No. Bedrooms

Location: Abridge, Essex
Works: This project involved changing the second bedroom in the house in to two separate bedrooms to add an extra bedroom to the property.
Internally the works comprised moving the wall dividing the second bedroom from the master bedroom - this created a slightly smaller master bedroom but a wider second bedroom; building a dividing wall through the middle of the second bedroom and creating a second entrance door in the hallway; modifying the heating, lighting and electrics to serve the two separate rooms.
Externally, as the second bedroom only had one window in the centre of the room this window was removed and two new openings were created in the external wall of the property and two new windows were installed so each bedroom has its own window.
This work increased the number of bedrooms in the property and saved the family from needing to move home or undertake a loft conversion to achieve another bedroom for their children.

Location: Kensington, London
Works: This project involved the complete strip out of a top floor flat at the top of a Georgian house conversion.
