Have been told it needs 'TANKING' I'm not sure. Still has dirt floor, and walls need sealing/plastering. I believe that is causing the damp mustiness. Would like it done asap as it is a redundant space and would like to use it.

Visited twice to measure and make sure only materials needed were ordered. Explained all aspects of work going to be carried out. Three members of 'PB' that worked on the basement were great! Cleaned every eve post work and were very friendly. Highly recommend
A complete renovation of a two bedroom terest house. Main jobs include. Renovation of a small 10m by 4m Garden. The complete gutting and reinstolation of the kitchen and the whole house replastered (where needed).
An excellent builder. Everything was done on time and everything was explained to me as we went along. The price wasnt bad either!
Brick Chimney showing signs of weather damage. Ideally would like to get repaired as soon as possible, before wetter weather sets in. Need advice on potential costs and repairs necessary. Minor repairs to guttering could be added to work if reasonable, whilst access is available. Happy to discuss.
Punctual and efficient. Gave good advice on how to reduced costs on project, Identified alternative solution. Good communication. Provided customer references and where we could view previous work. Final elements of job to be completed in a few weeks. Will update then.
I know that this job isn't underpinning/foundations but nothing else seemed to fit the job we need doing.
Erect scaffolding to rear of house. Hack off render (tyrolene) to gable end. Remove and replace lintels and cill from upstairs window. Make good plaster internally round window. Then re-render gable end with sand and cement. Other tyrolene at side of house may need work but would be replaced with tyrolene not sand and cement. Paint all external walls at rear of house.
We have been really impressed with the quality of work and professionalism of Canna Construction. They guys have done a great job, time keeping has been impressive and we are really pleased with the finished job.
kitchen (8 x 10) - old removed; damp proofing?; plastering; new kitchen/tiles including dg window
old bathroom (6 x 8) - as above including dg window and back door
new bathroom upstairs (10 x 8)including dg window
We are very pleased with the work completed - the kitchen and bathroom have been completely transformed! Nigel used a team of experts and he and his colleagues were very easy to talk to, were extremely understanding in dealing with an old person living in an old house and completely trustworthy. The only downside was that the work was delayed by a week and it took longer than expected.
Looking to modernise every room in the property as well as revamp bathrom and tile kitchen.
I was delighted with the end product. Very dynamic and talented team of builders. Crucially, Shaun and his team were honest and transparent in their dealings and I would not hesitate using them again in the future.

I need a quote for replacement of timber floor joists in a first floor bedroom of a victorian semi, which have become bowed with age. Quote should include reinstatement of the ceiling underneath to finished quality and floorboards on top. Room is approx 4.09x3.25m.
Upstairs bedroom floorboards are uneven and there is a significant gap/distance in places between the skirting boards and the floorboards. Floor is particularly drooped in the middle of the room.
I need someone who will be able to take up some floorboards, see what is going on and who will then be able to rectify the problem.
No time wasters please- only reply if you think this is within your expertise and capabilities. Timing: Within 2 months
