There are many different aspects to home refurbishments and property renovations, each of which needs careful consideration. As experienced builders, contractors and tradesmen, we undertake all aspects of refurbishment and renovation work, anywhere in Chalfont St Peter and the surrounding areas. Our skills include plastering, rendering, painting, decorating, electrical work and roofing. We can even care for your plumbing and heating.
Many of the talents that we bring to home refurbishments and renovations also have applications on new builds, property extensions, loft conversions and other types of construction work. With so many areas of improvement where we can lend a hand, it can be difficult to know where to start on a project.
That’s why we’ve provided a helpful list of things to consider when planning refurbishments and property renovations. Some of these will apply to property extensions and loft conversions undertaken in the Chalfont St Peter area too.
As one of the most important areas to consider, the exterior of your property needs to be in a good state of repair for interior refurbishments and property renovations to be worthwhile. Before starting work, our builders assess the structural condition of your home including the roof, the guttering and other external features. Structural alterations are often what separate large-scale renovation work from smaller home refurbishments.
Addressing these issues first ensures any further work has the best possible base to build upon, almost literally, in fact!
Property renovations often include alteration of the interior layout with the modern preference being for open-plan space. This is a popular design choice for kitchen/diners, which is why so many property extensions built in Chalfont St Peter follow this style. We put plenty of thought into layouts on a project. This means that our builders and tradesmen never encounter any problems with the specification while working on your home.
There are several ways to improve living space, such as:
Constructing Single or Double-Storey Extensions
Removing and Constructing Internal Walls
Optimising Attic Space with Loft Conversions
Property extensions and loft conversions are both great ways to increase living space. We regularly increase the space inside homes in Chalfont St Peter with additional new bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as creating functional home offices, kitchen extensions and utility rooms for customers and clients.
Flooring has a significant effect on the look and feel of a home, with different materials providing different benefits.
Luxury vinyl tiles and wooden or stone floors are very popular in modern homes because they are easy to clean and are available in a broad range of finishes. Some products, like Amtico and Karndean, have a wide range of commercial applications. They are not restricted to home refurbishments and property renovations.
And we’re not restricted to being just builders. If you need us to install a floor or tile a wall, we’ll be there to help.
Whichever material you prefer, make sure the sub-floor is in a good condition and ties in with your choice of style. If a floor needs repairing or replacing, we can use concrete, screed or latex to restore condition and to prepare for the job ahead.
With experience in all areas of electrical work, we ensure that your system is both safe and functional. Most refurbishments, renovations, property extensions and loft conversions will all require a registered technician to check the standard of electrical installations, wiring, fixtures and fittings, or may require fuse boards, rewires, additional sockets or lighting.
It is important to think about where sockets and light switches will go. To get the best from your space, consider how you will use the room and where you plan to position your furniture.
An effective plumbing system is essential if a home in Chalfont St Peter is to produce heating or hot water to its full potential. If installing a new kitchen, bathroom or utility room into one of our property extensions, or if you plan to use one of our loft conversions as a home office or hobby room, it is important to assess the heating and the pipework. A drain survey checks for blockages and could identify structural damage.
We make sure the existing system heats the home without putting strain on the boiler. In some cases, it is necessary to upgrade to a more powerful model for superior energy efficiency.
Kitchens sit at the heart of modern homes, so they need to be comfortable as well as functional. Home refurbishments and property renovations can include replacement of cabinetry, units and drawer fronts, or a complete remodel using a new kitchen suite. If your existing kitchen meets your needs, a little cosmetic work is a marvellous way to revamp room space and for our builders and tradesmen to give it a new lease of life.
Simple solutions, such as updating cupboard doors and handles, or a little painting and decorating, improve the appearance and feel of rooms in your Chalfont St Peter property and turn it into a home that’s designed around the way you want to live.
