Looking for a Builder or Building Contractors in Welwyn, Stevenage or St Albans?
Building Contractors and Services
All of our builders cover a wide range of services. These include all general building such as. Extensions, alterations, refurbishments, renovations, new builds, brickwork and loft conversions
Property maintenance can also be included under builders as too can carpenters & joiners. painters & decorators and even block pavers.
Planning permission is sometimes required before commencing an extension. Your builder will advise you on this and is most cases, will submit the request for planning permission to the local council for you. It is wise to allow a long lead-time for council approval though. It can take several months to get the go ahead.
Alterations can be a cheaper option to moving house and is favoured highly during times of recession where moving can be a difficult option or where funds are restricted. It is also a good solution if you are particular about the area or even more important, like the neighbours.
If you have a particular design in mind for a property, why not build from scratch? A suitable piece of land, plans and a qualified, reliable builder can make dreams come true and can be cheaper than purchasing a completed property.
