Philip Waugh General Building has helped homeowners across Fleet, Farnham and the surrounding areas to renovate their properties for close to 30 years. Whatever your starting point, be it renovating an entire home or updating and improving several rooms, our builders are specialists in home renovations. No matter how big or small the project, our team has the knowledge, guidance and skills required to produce your ideal home upgrade.
A renovation may be the necessary option if your property needs to meet updated UK Building Regulations or is perhaps damaged or dilapidated. Family and lifestyle developments may have you considering home renovations as a practical, cost-effective alternative to moving house altogether.
You may have purchased a property which requires extensive work from the outset and wish to improve its appearance and value to flip a fast profit on a resale.
Whatever the situation or circumstances, whether you are struggling with where to start or need help in moving a home renovation project forward, our team of expert builders will provide the exact services you require.
Home renovations are always a big undertaking so, ahead of deciding if this is the right building and development work for your property, consider the following:
Most home renovations occur in older properties. Confirm the age of a home with your local authority for Fleet or Farnham, or with HM Land Registry. This can potentially highlight specific work that may have previously taken place in the foundations not obvious in a general survey of the property.
Overlooking this could affect your planning and budgeting.
Ahead of major works taking place, establish how transport and larger machinery can get to and from your property. You may have to consider access via external land or neighbouring areas. Preparing a project to allow for the access of people, materials and equipment is referred to as site enabling.
Our builders have experience in enabling large-scale projects so will be competent in planning for smaller renovations too.
Period properties may contain distinctive features that add character and value. Take this into consideration as part of your initial planning, determining carefully what can be replaced and what could be a potential renovation or refurbishment. Considerations should also be applied when purchasing property with the express intention of renovating.
Surveys and building reports consider space around the property, including neighbouring homes and landscapes in around the Fleet and Farnham areas.
Each phase of renovating a home must be consistent and completed in a timely manner to guarantee the best results. From day one, our team initiates thorough project management and applies attention to detail and diligence at every stage. We work with you closely to get the concept, design and architectural planning exactly as you desire. Maintaining open lines of communication and transparency, we ensure documentation, choice of methods and materials, budgeting and any variations or alterations are handled efficiently.
This keeps you on track for a flawless renovation.
All home renovations have different demands and requirements. Our multiskilled team of builders have covered all bases with their work in Fleet, Farnham and the neighbouring towns and villages over the years.
It is likely that significant alterations to your home will require permission from local authorities. Speak to your nearest office to find out what is likely to be accepted by planning departments in Fleet, Farnham and the neighbouring areas, and they will guide you through the correct procedures and timescales accordingly.
