A selection of our previously completed projects showcasing a variety of the works and services John Daniels Builders offers
Looking for a loft conversion?
Stripping out of the old services, floor boards and insulation to get the loft back to a basic shell.
We placed extra supports to the existing purlings, a complete new joist system for the floor and 2 new Velux roof windows and a new stair access from the ground floor.
We formed new walls to the perimeter with storage underneath, new insulation to all of the loft rafters, over boarded and plastered all areas with central heating and electrics added to these areas.
Full decorations were carried out to all the walls, skirting boards and door frames along with new oak doors and carpets to finish all of the works off.
Lawns & Landscaping
Our client couldn’t quite see how things would be when they approached us; we sat down with them, advised them on the best practice and even took them to a builder’s merchant to show them the selection of paving to choose from. We then did a sketch of the garden and worked out what and where items could go, in the end the client was more than happy with all of our team and the results achieved.
Looking for a new lawn?
We excavated all the old weeds, lawns, borders and patio areas in order to get a clean site to prepare.
We used a rotavator to clean out any surplus stones and weeds and to get the land reasonably level prior to turfing.
A new patio area was formed, along with new borders and planting areas.
The lawn was laid, patio area completed and borders filled with a variety of shrubs and small conifers.
Parking & Driveways
After a discussion between the client and ourselves the client decided on the size, style and details they were after for their new parking area. Once completed they couldn’t believe how much room was created and still leaving a border for their plants and shrubs.
Looking for a new drive?
We then removed the existing lawn and reduced the borders around the perimeter.
A new perimeter border curb was fitted and the area was filled and compacted with hardcore.
The small wall was made good and all of the area was covered in new gravel so forming 3 parking spaces.
Looking for roof repair?
We had a call that a clients roof was raining in over the bedroom window, we investigated and found broken tiles and damaged felt.
The areas were stripped back to the rafters and cleaned out of any debris.
A new breather style membrane was fitted along with new tile battens and new plastic eaves boards.
All of the tiles were placed back and new tiles fitted where required, the hips and verges had new mortar bedding and pointing and now the client has no raining in.
Walls and Boundaries
Want to revamp your walls?
We took the old 100mm thick wall down to the existing footings.
We excavated the ground to allow for a larger block to be used.
We then built a new wall in 150mm block work
Then finished it off with a twin fall coping stone and all of the plants re-instated.
