Mike was brilliant. He was hard working, proffessional and was very reasonably priced. I unexpectedly asked him if he could sort out a few other jobs and he did them for me on the same day! Very happy with his work and service and would recommend him to anyone looking for a good builder. He is very honest and knowledgable and i have 100% confidence in him. I will be using him for all my future jobs!susie
Existing wood shed demolished. back blockwork front brickwork. partitioned into 4 sections Basic outbuilding with concrete foundations
Very professional & polite. Turned up when they said they would, worked long hours to complete the job in a tidy and well finished fashion. I would definately recommend them and would use them again without hesitation.
Wall between kitchen and study needs to knocked down and a steel beam inserted for support.
The floors in these room are at different height, so they will need evening out with a layer of concrete.
This room will then be fitted with a kitchen, so I also welcome quotes from anybody who might be willing to supply that too, from trade sources (obviously with a separate quote and price), but I will still be happy to just have the building work done.
Installing a false partition in adjacent room for a door.
Opening up and repointing a bricked up fireplace.
Jim and Gareth did the most accurate survey and provided the most accurate quote, also giving lots of brilliant suggestion on how to best use the space.
They turned up on time, worked very hard and finished when they say they will.
They were always very patient, answered all my questions and always talked me through the day's progress, as well as any delays.
They were always very tidy and made sure we were always able to use the sink, washing machine and cooker at the weekend.
They cleaned up after themselves and left the new rooms absolutely spotless.
All in all I'm going to run out of space and I still couldn't recommend them enough. They are brilliant and really do a great job!Stef
A stone fire-place is to be removed that measures width 123cm X height 103cm & harth is same width by 49cm. The fireplace is then to be bricked up. A heating engineer will have already removed the gas fire. There is also a fitted wooden cupboard that measures width 133cm X height 103cm depth 49cm which is to be removed. Once done the room will need to be plastered (skimmed hopefully) up to the picture rail. The room measures 422cm X 340cm and the height of the picture rail is 190cm. There is a large window in one of the walls and two doors.
The job was completed to a high standard, much quicker than anticipated. Mike and his colleague arrived on time both for the estimate for the work and the job itself. Would recommend his services to others.Gary
To remove an internal load bearing wall. All structural engineering calcs have been done and are available for inspection. They have been submitted to building control.
Tameside Brickwork & Building did an excellent job. They did the work on time and within their original quote despite several minor modifcations to the original request. bob and his collegues worked hard and were as tidy as could be on such a job. Building control have just inspected and passed the work so again a good job well done.Dave
We have a non-converted loft with a tiny loft hatch. I would like a larger loft hatch, a loft ladder and the loft boarding for storage. The house was built in 1926 so I presume the joists are not suitable for much in the way of load bearing.
Related to that last point, I'd also be interested in how much it would cost to fully convert the loft into a bedroom and whether it can be done in phases and how much each phase would cost.
I also have a couple of other bits of bobs including bricking up an old external coal bunker and making it into an internal cupboard and installing some sort of drainage on a concrete driveway as it keeps flooding the garage.
I have a traditional 2 up/2 down terrace with downstairs bathroom. Currently an open plan style downstairs, I am looking for a ground floor renovation to involve replacement of bathroom and kitchen with reconfiguration of both. Installation of new 'patio' style doors and blocking up of old back door to make larger bathroom, replacement of flooring, front door replacement, possible porch to be built, updating of interior decoration and flooring. Some structural work to bathroom extension may be needed. Cosmetic work to back yard also needed (re-concreting floor area and rendering walls). Wood burner to be installed in living area - can be dealt with separately but interested if this can be included as well. Looking for project management of the entire works.
not a chimney.Edging roof tiles need pushing back in place.
We need a load bearing internal wall taking down and an rsj putting in. Also need to be plastered and made good.
Updated : To repair damge to kitchen party wall and sort out damp problem in terraced house. This will mean first removing kitchen units, cupboards etc in order to gain access to the wall behind. The units etc will need to be repaired / returned to position after the work of dampproofing has been completed. Ideally once started the work needs to be done quickly as the house is ocupied by a tenant and child. Original : To repair damge to kitchen party wall and sort out damp problem in terraced house.

Updated : Plumbing included and fitting of kitchen and utility room.... Original : two walls removed, re pitch of roof on extention, floor leveling and more.....
Opening up a doorway between kitchen and dininng room, load bearing wall so need an rsj. Knock down wall and make good. Also may need someone who can put in new windows.
I have ripped out my old fire place but the new one has a bigger arch so I need someone to open up the entrance of the chimney breast to enable the new one to fit (only by about 3 or 4 inches). it would be desirable if you had plastering and joinery experience but it's not essential.
Please get back to me ASAP, in a hurry to get the job done
Hi, I want to potentially take out a gas fire in my living room and dependent upon what is behind it, open up the chimney again. This would involve having the chimney cleared, checked in the loft and on the exterior. Also seeing whether the breast can be reduced in size.
I would obviously like to take some advice from the builder i.e. if a real fire / wood stove would be appropriate. Obviously if all goes to plan, someone who also has plastering on their resume would be great.
I am looking to have the work take place as soon as possible.
The removal of a wall between the kitchen and the utility room. And the installation of french windows.
