Extensions

Extending your home is a great way of maximising the potential of your property to give you the extra space without the cost and stresses associated with moving house.

Whether you already have architects plans completed or wish to use our own expertise to draw these up for you, understanding your very specific requirements and working with the existing fabric of the property, allows us to create a tailor made solution for the additional living space you need.

We make every step of the process as stress-free as possible from partitioning off the construction works should you choose to stay at home whilst the extension is being constructed, to providing samples of finished materials for you to select from.

We understand that not all extensions are straight-forward and the different types of ground make up across Surrey and Hampshire give rise to different construction methods but our many years of experience assure you of every attention to detail to provide longevity for your investment.

Roofing

Whether you’re creating a cut rafter roof, flat roof with ornate coping stones or a pitched tile or slate roof, we are always mindful to ensure any new roofing, works with the existing building or style of the property you wish to achieve.

Covering all types of roofing, we use only quality materials that provide longevity and peace and mind.

Kitchens

The kitchen is often referred to as the heart of the home and designing a space that works for you is more than the physical cabinets and appliances.

Planning a new kitchen is exciting but we don’t forget that you may be living in the property and will ensure we plan the removal of cabinets and appliances with you and set up a temporary kitchen to enable a stress free transition from old to new.

We have worked with most of the larger kitchen companies in and around Surrey and Hampshire and are always happy to work alongside them for scheduling or providing practical help for drainage, heating or working around structural steels.

Alternatively, our team of highly skilled carpenters can fit your kitchen for you, achieving the best quality finish. Depending on the supplier, we can also order and manage the whole process for you including any necessary returns, changes or additional parts alongside the scheduling of worktop templating and installation, plumbing and electrics.

Bathrooms

Whilst a bathroom is a functional room, it still needs careful consideration to provide the practicalities, storage and finish you have in mind. Details such as low level lighting, storage recesses, concealed cisterns and tiling all need thought at the early stages so that they can be incorporated during construction.

We will always guide you through the process, manage the technicalities and can put you in touch with the right supplier for your budget.

Basements & Tanking

Excavating for a basement or extending an existing small basement area can be a more complex project and requires specialist structural works, waterproofing and tanking in order to meet habitable living standards.

Consideration needs to be given to the impact on neighbouring properties, ground make up, building control requirements and risk assessments and compliance with health and safety requirements.

For the majority of the build, we limit access via the main part of the house to reduce disturbance not just for yourselves but also for your neighbours.

Our 30 years’ experience in building across Surrey and Hampshire have provided us with the expertise and best practise, modern construction methods to achieve a conversion that you can be proud of whether it’s a cinema room, gaming room or garden room leading out onto a rear garden connection.

Structural Work

Working alongside surveyors and structural engineers we have a wealth of experience to provide specialist structural work services to alter internal layouts or structurally repair the fabric of all kinds of buildings, including heritage.

During any construction, structural support is a critical stage of the works, providing structural integrity to the existing fabric of the building. Whether it’s under pinning the existing building, providing new foundations or propping and needling internally, we assess what is the right solution for the project to preserve the building, and most importantly carry out the works safely.

If you’re looking to knock through internal walls, we can survey the existing building enabling us to suggest the best options, tailored to your budget, using the very latest structural technology to deliver high quality workmanship.
