South London Refurbishments Ltd turned an unusable cellar space into a utility room

Replacing roof tiles in Clapham Common, South London, SW12

The weather is not kind to us and when you have a leaky roof it can cause a lot of damage and cost a substantial amount of money.  South London Refurbishments is taking on a project in Clapham Common, where patch repairs have been carried out previously but once a roof has a leak it is sometimes hard to pinpoint where exactly the water penetrates into the property.  We have to remove the roof tiles in its entirety, including ridge tiles, checking the felt and batten underneath for any defects.  We will also be checking the lead flashing, fascia, soffits, gutters and rectify the issues where needed.  We will be fitting new Slate tiles and ridge tiles and then re-fixing all lead and flashing. It goes without saying all rubbish is removed from site and we will carry out a water test on the new roof.

Utilising your cellar, another job finished in Clapham, South London, SW11

In Clapham Junction, South London, SW11, South London Refurbishments Ltd turned an unusable cellar space into a utility room. We removed flooring and investigated the foundation as to how much we can go down to give enough headroom without undermining any existing structure or having to excavate the basement and incurring high costs.  We gained 10-12 inches allowing us to have decent headroom and to use the space as a utility/storage room.  If you have a cellar where there is a potential of turning it to a useable space, there is always a way to turn that room to a useable space for cost effectively.

Loft extensions in South London

When space is at a premium, a loft conversion is the ideal answer to extending the living space of your home. There is much potential in using space that already exists within a house.

South London Refurbishments provide first class loft conversion work in the South London region, covering most areas within it such as Clapham, Fulham, Chelsea.

A loft conversion can greatly add value to your property, so if moving up the ladder or development takes your fancy, a loft conversion can be the answer. The ability to build new housing in a city like London is becoming more and more limited. House prices, convenience of travel to work and schools may have to be balanced against the needs of a growing family and so the decision to stay where you are and have a loft conversion to give you that extra space may be the most logical and financially prudent alternative to moving house.

It doesn't matter what your property is, a semi detached, a town house, detached, if you have a suitable loft space and want to maximise on the size and value of your home, then South London Refurbishments can provide the full service for you.

Did you know that, within certain limits, you may not even need planning permission as the recently introduced “Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (Amendment) (No. 2) (England) Order 2008” has cut the red tape on a range of standard domestic building projects?
