I have been in the Building Trade for 20 years. I am qualified and have time served in many trades including Bricklaying, Joinery, Plastering, Kitchen and Bathroom renovations. I have competed many extensions, Knock throughs, Full Refurbs and Kitchen and Bathroom refits.
I have been self employed for the past 10 years and have worked throughout Staffordshire and Manchester. I started off doing small renovations jobs and progressed to extensions and full house refurbs.
Hello there, i would advise getting a builder by your side from the beginning as the builder can advise on ideas and the stages needed. alternatively you go through the process yourself and employ a builder once permitted.
It all depends on what you are having done and the size of the job to be honest.
most straight forward loft conversions are about 4-5 weeks.
where as some that have large dormers and be spoke stair cases take 6-8 weeks.
Hello its mason here, it takes the average builder/bathroom fitter 5 days to remove and refit a new bathroom suite including all plumbing etc. thanks mason
Hi there, its mason here. the average bathroom price all depends on the quality of the suite and tiles as the prices vary massively. but a average quality suite and tiles etc is around £1200- £1500.
the labour is around the same.
Hi its mason here, skimming is plastering but it is when you put on average a 4mm layer of plaster
over the original plaster (before skimming) brush on a diluted layer of pva glue so the new plaster adheres to the old. thanks mason
