  • This was a project that really plays to our strengths as a company providing a single point of call for all types of external renovations such as roofing, cladding, windows and doors and soffits, fascias and gutters. Not only were we able to do all these services to a very high standard, we also completed the project on budget and to a tight timetable -the classic 'ready for Christmas'. This was despite record snowfall (as you can see from the pictures) which made us, according to our local building supplies merchants, the only people working in those conditions. Even when deliveries failed to arrive due to the ice and snow, we found a ways to acquire essential materials.

    Prior to our arrival the house was quite cold due to draughty windows & doors and poorly insulated timber frame cladding. The roof was heavily infested with moss and needed extensive mortar repairs. The soffits and fascias were starting to rot and the gutters leaked in many places. In the space of 22 days every external square foot of the house was upgraded. Starting with the roof, it was cleaned and all mortar repairs to ridges and verges re bed in waterproofed mortar. All new shiplap uPVC cladding with vented 50mm PIR board insulation. New uPVC vented soffits, fascias and gutters, new double glazed windows with astrical bars were installed, incorporating two large bay windows. New doors front and back, 1 French door and a patio door, a small annex building demolished and roof and walls made good. And finally when the weather warmed up, the roof was coated with anti- fungal and an specialist acrylic roof coating was applied to rejuvenate roof to like new appearance.
