Replacement windows, doors, conservatories and roofline can often mean more than simple renovation of your property .

This is often not the case; there is a lot of variations house construction design and individual requirements that can involve building work, joinery, plastering, plumbing, roofing and electrical work. In our extensive experience we have completed many different variations of this work to ensure you can get the finished installation you require.

Brickwork removal:

A popular alteration to the rear elevation of a property is to turn a flat window into a patio door. If you intend to keep the existing width of the frame and just remove the brickwork below this is quite a straightforward installation. The external walls are cut out, the internal walls removed by hand, the new internal reveals are plastered and a new tread board is fitted. When patio doors are fitted radiators often need to be re-sited or capped off, sometimes plug points need moving too.

We often remove brickwork on windows for various reasons: to let in more light, to get a better view of the garden, or simply a design change. The most popular way of doing this is to remove one or two courses of brickwork below the window.Also some openings have arches above or do not have lintels were we need to remove brickwork and fit a new lintel in line with FENSA and building regulations.this would be our recommendation should we find loose brickwork

Making the aperture wider becomes a slightly more complicated installation. This involves installing a new lintel, either catnic or concrete lintels are used depending on the installation.
