Many period properties throughout the UK have undesirable layouts, often split up into several small, awkwardly shaped rooms. This is one reason why these properties may be cheaper than more contemporary homes. Thanks to our expertise in house renovations, we can perform structural alterations, such as knocking down internal walls, to create larger, more spacious rooms.
Implementing open-plan living areas and kitchens is a great way to modernise a rundown, outdated property in Crystal Palace, Dulwich, Greenwich, Hackney, Walthamstow or the surrounding areas.
Older properties may require extensive electrical and plumbing works in order to ensure they cope with the demands of modern-day life. Not only do we have NICEIC approved electricians in our house renovations team, but we also have experienced plumbers, Gas Safe registered heating engineers and FENSA certified glazers. This enables us to carry out a wide range of tasks, such as installing new, more efficient boilers and central heating systems.
We can also improve the energy efficiency of older homes by fitting aluminium or uPVC double-glazed windows and doors. Not only can we easily improve your property’s ability to retain heat, but we will also lower the cost of your energy bills.
This is a big aspect of house renovations on period properties. We repoint brickwork, repair roof structures and perform other such tasks to restore the original charm of a property’s exterior. And, if you live in a listed building or designated area in Crystal Palace, Dulwich, Greenwich, Hackney or Walthamstow, we are always mindful of any restrictions that we must follow.
Britbuild Direct Ltd also restores decorative mouldings, ornate fireplaces and timber beams, to show off the original features of your home’s interior.
