Like with most refurbishments or building repairs jobs, looking after your chimney can be costly, but a necessary outlay. There are factors that should be considered when trying to decide whether or not your chimney needs to be repaired, demolished or completely rebuilt. The two main factors you should consider when deciding to repair or rebuild your damaged chimney are; the safety risks and long-term costs.
We can inspect your chimney and let you know just how extensive the damage is and if it is worth the cost to repair or rebuild it. If it is a simple repair, it won't take long and won't be intrusive. If your chimney needs to be rebuilt, then it will take longer.
Everyone knows how important it is to have a good roof overhead. Your roof protects the rest of your home from damage, helps hold in heat or keep your home cool, adds value to your home and gives you and your family a healthier, happier place to live. Even if your roof isn't new, if you follow these simple maintenance tips now, you may be able to keep your roof in tip top condition much longer than even the average 15 years covered by most warranties.
Adding an extension to your property in Romford is an effective way of creating more living space, perhaps to give you more room for your hobbies or work, or to accommodate a growing family or an elderly relative. It is often a more economical option than moving house, not least because buying a new property incurs stamp duty and estate agent fees – which in some cases might amount to the cost of an extension itself.
Below is a step-by-step guide to the main challenges you will face as you advance from deciding to build an extension in Essex in the first instance, to moving into the final structure.
Like with any renovation project, organising for a room to be plastered takes planning. The following basic steps will help…
Step one – budget
The cost of plastering your room will depend upon the size. Small rooms will be charged less than large rooms, although it is possible to get a good rate if several rooms are being plastered at the same time.
Step two – furniture
What is the room you are considering to have plastered used for? If it’s a bedroom, is it big enough for the furniture to be moved around the room or will everything need to be moved out? If you have said yes to the second question, is there somewhere that this furniture can go? Also bare in mind that your plasterer will need to have access to this room with their tools and equipment.
Step three – water
Water is an important feature that plasterers use to make up their plaster and access to a bathroom, kitchen or outside tap will be required.
Step four – sockets and skirting boards
If you are able to remove sockets and mask skirting boards, this will make the plastering job much easier. Plastering around sockets can slow a job down, so taking them off the wall or loosening them so that they are away from the wall is always helpful. No-one wants plastering cement in places where they shouldn’t be, so covering these and flooring is recommended. Your hired plasterer should bring their own dust sheets too.
Step four – research
Do your homework! Plastering services can be searched for online on the internet, social media platforms (like Facebook) or via personal recommendations.
Step five - quotes

Your car hasn't seen the interior of your garage in ages, and the garage itself has become an archive for out of date magazines and other assorted rubbish. The question is, when you’re not using your garage for a car why not use it for something more useful? Here are six excellent suggestions on how you can use your garage. But before you begin...
...Tidy Up First
Before you begin your project, the first thing you should do is dispose of all the assorted rubbish in it. If you have quite a bit to dispose hiring a skip will save you time versus making a number of trips to the local tip.
Most skip businesses will deliver the skip to your home and remove it once it is filled. Speak to a skip company to discuss what size you will need to accommodate the amount of rubbish you produce. Be sure you don't dispose of any perishable items or things that can harm the environment such as batteries or household cleaners. Once you have cleared and cleaned your garage - it’s ready to be transformed!
