Refurbishment companies London
Carrying out refurbishments in London is highly specialised work. Being extremely old (many houses date back well into the eighteenth century, and a huge amount dates to the nineteenth century), London properties were almost always constructed using timber joists, members and staircases that have moved significantly with the passing of years. The result is that floors generally slope, windows that are parallel to the floor are not parallel with the ceiling and so on.
It is far from uncommon for the most handsome of rooms to have a different floor to ceiling height in each corner, and for curtains to need to be made up with gentle gradients along their hems. As to windows (which were originally single-glazed and thus extremely drafty), every one must be individually measured and carefully remanufactured as part of a refurbishment.
Surveying a property of this kind is an exacting task, requiring a huge amount of detail to be recorded and calling for significant skill to produce drawings of the layout.
Specialist structural engineers, familiar with properties of this kind, are then needed to advise on what is or is not possible and the best way to achieve the requirements of the remodel. Our view is that just about anything is possible, providing you are prepared to commit the resource to obtain it.
Ensuring a suberb finish to your refurbishment
It is not, however, ultimately the dividing of space that gives the refurbishment its character of elegance and good taste.
These human responses to your property come from the use of premium finishes such as fine solid-wood flooring, quality marbles, high specification kitchens and bathrooms, and best-in-class choices of equipment like sound systems and wine fridges.
You can be wholly confident that we will look after every facet of the refurbishment for you, from the very first survey through to the application of these vital finishing touches.
