What our customers say

approach to

Latest Projects


This was a property where a section of the house had been badly damaged by fire.

Once the repair works were started it became apparent that there was a lot more damage than was originally thought and so the extent of the works became much greater.

Works included – major structural work together with a partial new roof and coverings and a full refurbishment of one section of the house together with a partial refurbishment of the remainder of the property.

This was handed over to a satisfied client in 2020.
