He will also take care of all the building warrant work with the council building standards and deal with any subsequent points. This removes all the stress from having to do this yourself.

And unlike other companies, we do not simply sell you a job and then put a group of contractors into your house to complete it.

With Michael at the helm, he does what he does best with your project. From the initial survey, to making sure that your materials arrive on site. We take care of it all. Michael is a fully time served, qualified and highly experienced joiner and he makes sure that your job is run as smoothly as if it was his own home.

We have worked for years in partnership with a very well qualified electrician in Greg at GSM Electrical. He makes sure that all the electrical work is of the standard expected and indeed conforms to Select code and regulations. This is absolutely essential as a Select certificate is required by building standards in order that you get your completion certificate. His advice on energy performance and subsequent recommendations are employed by us. This could mean LED bulbs or lighting solutions in your new room. This will help lower your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint, which is something to which we all aspire.

Any heating or plumbing work is undertaken by John, he is a highly qualified and experienced heating engineer. John is also Gas Safe registered (ID 514107) for your complete piece of mind. His varied experiences are essential when adding a radiator or 2 to your house as he will check over the boiler and zones to see which works without any heating issues. After all, no one wants a half warm radiator. This can be the case when using companies that can do everything with one man doing all the work himself.
