Getting back to grass roots!…well it seems like an age since this was my primary business, carrying out around 250 back to brick renovations on terraced homes prior to selling them on with 5% deposit, legal fees, carpets etc etc all paid…..those were the days eh!
It makes a pleasant change from our core business to get back to basics again with this terraced house renovation in macclesfield on behalf of a landlord…That in itself makes a pleasant change, most landlord enquiries we get involve the superficial tarting up to get ready for the next tenant, needless to say we don’t blogg those ones!

Obviously the correct way to modernise a property to this extent would be to employ the services of a builder, and if you wish to modernise a property in stoke on trent, cheshire, staffordshire or shropshire we would be only to happy to help.

If you are a hands on type, and you want to have a go yourself, then this is how we go about it!

Stage 1 – After carrying out a full assessment of the property it was decided that there wasn’t much left to keep in this one, so the handsome young apprentice joe mason ( heir to the throne ) sets about removing all of the plaster from the walls and most ceilings.
The problem with properties built in this era .. approaching 100yrs old, is that the old rendered plaster has become damp. perished, loose etc…and yes you could spend time repairing and patching, but realistically its better in the long term to start again sometimes.

look out for stage 2 where we start to treat the damp and carry out tanking the walls.
