The kitchen wall had been severely damaged by dripping water due to  a hole in the roof.

Much of the wall required stripping down to the original render, sealing & re-plastering.

It was then sealed off with a special sealer/ bonder.

This children's bedroom was severely affected by water seeping in through external brickwork, damaging the plaster walls.

The mould was very severe and required cleaning.

After removal of mould, the damaged plaster was removed and new plaster filled into all cavities.

 

The wall was given 2 coats of primer and awaits a new vibrant wallpaper.

Plaster Wall Restoration

Very heavy looking conduit was mistakenly put above skirting boards & around a doorway architrave.

 

Unfortunately, when removed, much of the plaster came off due to the poor condition of the walls.

 

Once removed, the area was carefully restored.

Custom Handrail Installation

PJ Rail_2.jpg

An elderly client required hand rails fitted along a corridor and down stairs for her husband in a 2 storey terrace.

 

These were purchased raw, stained, lacquered and fitted with specially sourced bronze brackets (matching ones which were 4o years old).

These railings are so important for mobility as people grow older, allowing them to maintain independence.

Restore Architrave

Many architraves around doors in older style homes have narrow light switches embedded in the wood detail.

 

Sometimes people choose to put in a larger style switch on the wall, leaving an unsightly hole as seen below.

Bathroom Regrout/Reseal

The silicone around the bath was also removed and replaced with white silicone.

 

The bathroom sparkled when finished.

Replace broken Tiles in a Kitchen

Over a long period of time, tiles were broken and removed.

 

This job required carefully cutting out the existing grout, cleaning the floor surface and sticking down new replacement tiles.

 

The glue was left to dry and the following day the tiles were re-grouted. An edging was fitted in order for the tiles edges to remain intact.

Small Bathroom Makeover

repaint with bluedoor.jpg

This  small bathroom required a low-cost solution to create a bright, clean look.

 

Re-tiling all the walls was too costly, so we looked at a cheaper alternative: tile paint. As you can see, this brightened up the bathroom providing a fresh modern look.

 

The door was previously hinged, so was replaced with a sliding barn-door, painted a fresh aquamarine colour, creating greater space.
