I need to put down a concrete reinforced base in my garden with damp proof membrane 9170mm x 4340mm x150mm deep as I am erecting a 6 pen cattery!
Russell at North Construction has done a fantastic job for me - laying a large (36 sq. m) concrete slab and tiling it. He is very reliable, friendly, tidy and knowledgeable. Would have no hesitation in using this company again and would highly recommend.Gill
Repoint chimney & fix a few roof tiles. Move a bedroom radiator. Remove & make good fitted wardrobes. Insulate loft & lay floor. Fix taps & kitchen cupboard.
Would definitely recommend. Very friendly, punctual, reliable, adaptable (we made a few changes and nothing seemed to be too much trouble), productive and worked to the deadlines we set for them, always tidied up at the end of each day. Generally very good, we have enjoyed having them on site and have given them some more decorating work to do for us - that's a recommendation in itself!PAUL
Retrospective fitting of steel beam to support remaining chimney stack after removal of chimney breast in the diving room and rear bedroom, that at the time workmen did not fit necessary support. Approximate span of supporting walls is 4m with an approx 2m chimney height needing an 80kg beam. Work not including structural engineer or cost of steel beam. Fitting only.
Replied and came out to the property very quickly to give free quote for works.
Replacement of 7 wooden balconies on a large block of flats, 6 at first floor level & 1 at second floor level. Age of block approximately 20+ years old. Occupies a sloping site but access to balconies flat.
To look the same as current balconies but to be built using hardwood rather than current softwood. Each balcony about 4 metres by 1 metre.
Despite the job being downgraded to repair rather than replacement Jamie was helpful, courteous and reliable. Will certainly offer the replacement job to him when the time comes.Joanne

Thanx a lot
We would like to create a doorway from a bedroom into a roof void, which would involve knocking through a wall. The roof space is currently part boarded and we would like to extend this to cover the whole area within the roof void as well.
I live in a terraced victorian house and where a previously removed chimney breast was in my ground floor, the ceiling has leaked a little which indicates water is getting into the chimney. I need something done to repair any damage and to prevent it happening again.

We need an internal wall knocked down and steel beam support to be installed plus vertical steel support. Also 2 doors to be taken out and one to be bricked up and one to be replaced with a window .
1. Install a bathroom on the first floor of the house by dividing the front main bedroom in two. 2. Install a set of double doors in the internal wall that divides the ground floor kitchen from the livingroom. 3. Partially remove another internal wall downstairs. 4. Possibly add a single storey rear extension. (Subject to building control regs.)
We would like to add a second floor to a bungalow
We would like to remove an internal section of wall and door (approx 2 metres wide) and replace with another internal wall about 1ft back. The aim is to widen our hallway. I think the wall is solid brick, but am not sure how much it supports, as most of it is a doorway.
We would then need the new wall replastered and made good on both sides to match the rest of the hallway and dining room.
The hallway floor will then need to be repaired. At the moment it is stripped narrow boards, but we would probably tile the whole hall, so the affected area would need to be able to support tiling and frequent footfall.
