Paul responded to our job quickly and provided us with a great quote and also offered us different ideas for how he could tile our chimney breast with split face tiles. He is super polite, friendly and his workmanship is outstanding. Without hesitation, we will ask Paul to do further tiling for us in the future. Thank you Paul, we are over the moon. Jane and Mark

We liked Armando straight away. He's a lovely person and can't do enough for you. We wanted a garage opening widened. He responded to my request promptly and came round quickly, providing a quote straight away. It was a good price and we gave him the job. Armando performed the work well and to schedule. That's not the whole picture though, he went out of his way to help out with other tasks that weren't included in the quote, like taking unwanted stuff to the local dump. I can thoroughly recommend him.

Mick and Tom have done a brilliant job converting my garage into a room. They were very quick and efficient, extremely friendly and completed the job to a high standard. They also recommended some additional drainage which I required, without this I could have had problems in the future. The tradesmen they work with were also wonderful and I would use them again if I needed anything else doing.

Specialist Services - what you need to know

There’s a huge range of specialist tradespeople who can help you with whatever you need. It doesn’t matter how niche it is, we’ve got it covered.

In many circumstances, if you’re having substantial work done on your home, a builder or project manager will take care of all the individual tradespeople needed to complete the whole job. However, if you’re taking on some work yourself, you might still need some specific help from someone who’s qualified and experienced. For example, you might be confident enough to do some work to your roof, but you need scaffolding put up to get the job done.

What a specialist tradesperson can help with

  • Air conditioning and refrigeration.
  • Damp proofing.
  • Fireplaces.
  • Scaffolding.
  • Thermal insulation.
  • Sound proofing.
  • Aerial and satellite dishes.
  • Brick and stone cleaning.
  • Cellar and basement conversion.
  • Demolition.
  • Digital home networks.
  • Disabled access and mobility services.
  • Sound and audio visual installation.
  • Timber preservation, woodworm and rot.
  • Underfloor heating.
  • Waste removal.
  • Whole internal refurbishment.
  • Stored gas or oil.

Maybe you’re redecorating, but you need some help installing a sound system where the cables are all neatly hidden. Maybe you want a fireplace installed too – whatever niche trade you need, you should find it here.

Here’s some info on the more common ones.

Air conditioning

Air conditioning is an increasingly popular bit of work to have done. Although the climate in the UK is fairly temperate, when it’s hot… it’s HOT. Read a bit more about your air conditioning options on our blog.

Damp proofing

If you’ve ever had damp in your home then you know how stubborn, unsightly and unhealthy it can be. So it’s always best to get it dealt with promptly and professionally. Rising damp, dry rot and wet rot are the most common instances of it – check out our 5-part guide to damp problems, which will help you get on top of it.

Fireplaces

Fireplaces and wood burners are definitely making a comeback, with their hearty warmth a real treat in the winter months. Find out which fireplace is right for you, as well as how to restore a fireplace.

Thermal insulation

If you find it difficult to keep your home warm in the depths of winter, you might need some extra insulation. Thermal insulation keeps heat from escaping too much, and it means you don’t have to keep the heating on all the time.

Scaffolding

Scaffolding needs to be put up by experienced teams to ensure it complies with all health and safety standards. It needs to have enough strength, rigidity and stability for the job to be completed safely. Make sure you use a professional if you need to do some work on your home that can’t be done with a ladder.

Sound proofing

There’s nothing worse than a noisy neighbour, unless it’s you, in which case you’re probably having fun… but either way, sound proofing might help you out. Have a look at how to get started with sound proofing here.

Insurance for any specialist tradesperson

As ever, anyone working on your home should have public liability insurance, which will cover you and them if someone gets hurt or if the property is damaged.
