HOUSE REFURBISHMENTS & RENOVATIONS
A lot of the work we carry out as Halifax and Hull’s go-to building contractor and joinery contractor involves constructing brand new house extensions and working on new build schemes. But we also take on house renovations, transforming old and tired homes into stunning modern ones.
On this page, we take a look at this particular area. If you’ve already done your research and are interested in discussing your ideas for house renovations, then give us a call on 01422 612 276.
Each and every renovation project is different. While a homeowner over in Halifax may just want a few areas of their home updated, with special attention paid to certain minor details, a client in Hull may want their entire property completely reimagined from the ground, up. That’s why our house renovations start with an in-depth survey and consultation to figure out exactly what you’re looking to accomplish.
If you fall into the latter category then during the initial design process we’ll consider all sorts of different things, not just the aesthetics. For example, the property’s energy efficiency and whether the current layout is going to be satisfactory. During this phase, it’s very important that you consider which original features you’d like to keep within your home. Things like fireplaces, antique mantels and timber staircases may be very valuable, and while looking worse-for-wear now, be completely restorable. Buffing them up would be much wiser than tearing them out for a less attractive new feature.
Then there are the new elements we can integrate. Certain walls may need to be built, others knocked down to create open-plan spaces (very sought after by Hull and Halifax house hunters, and therefore a great way to add value to your property). You may also want to invest in garage, basement or loft conversions as part of the wider renovation. This could give you a new bedroom, home office or games room, for example. In some cases, we can carry out house renovations in conjunction with house extensions. The sky is really the limit when you’re remodelling, it’s really just a matter of budget and what you’re looking to accomplish.
As skilled building contractors and joinery contractors, we can carry out both first and second fix tasks in-house. From relaying foundations that might be failing (in extreme cases), to the masterful installation of skirting boards and interior doors; this convers everything from internal work to repointing external walls so your home looks great on the inside, and also has loads of curb appeal.
Many other companies offering house renovations around Halifax and Hull need to call in external contractors, who they may have little experience working with. By only using workers we know and trust, we can maintain a high standard across all the work involved – both first and second fix.
Another key element of house refurbishments is updating infrastructure, like heating and electrics. Not all clients require this aspect of their home freshening up, but if you’ve had problems with them (e.g a noticeable lack of plug sockets or rooms that refuse to heat up due to old radiators), then it may be worth considering. We can always provide advice in this area, should you require.
So what are you waiting for? House renovations can massively increase the value of old and neglected properties around Halifax and Hull, and make the home a pleasure to wake up in – rather than an everyday nightmare where your kitchen is too small, and your living room an unsightly antiquity!
