How much deposit will I need?
We require a 6.5% deposit at time of booking (contract). Please note that preliminary costs for design and engineering, etc (if required) will be charged separately and are not included in the Deposit.
How much will it cost?
The costs to build, renovate or extend varies from project to project.
For peace of mind we offer a FIXED PRICE contract and a complete specification document. This ensures there are no surprises, no hidden extras and no need to worry about cost overruns.
Can I remain in my home when renovating or extending?
Yes. If you own a single bathroom home and it is being renovated we can discuss options such as making a temporary shower and toilet available to you. If required we can erect temporary walls to separate living areas from construction areas. For large scale renovations, we may recommend you stay elsewhere during the renovation as it’s no fun living in a construction site.
Are you qualified to carry out my new build, renovation or extension?
Yes. We are registered Builders (Registration no 12173) with over 20 years experience in the construction industry.
