Chimney stack re-build

This chimney stack needed to be broken down as the whole construction was literally on the verge of collapsing and letting in more rain than it already was. The pots were also quite loose, so along with a cracked bed, and with no ‘caps’, the whole thing needed a re-build, with the pots re-bedded and ‘capped’. Chimney caps are designed to help minimise heat loss from disused chimney flues. It provides 100% protection of the flue against rain, hail, snow, nesting birds, leaves etc. – protecting it from damage while still allowing ventilation of the flue.

Entrance Renovation

This is the rear entrance to a unit on an industrial estate. Some rubber matting had been used for some time around the tree, hiding stones, weeds and cigarette ends. A complete over-haul was required.
Around 4 inches of clay soil was removed and a membrane was used to prevent further weeds. Only a little ballast was used as the ground was relatively compacted naturally. Sand with a medium-wet mix applied with the pavers, as at the time there was quite a bit of sunshine – (so no chance of some rain helping a dry-mix along).
A couple of intricate slab cuts needed here and there but, needless to say an improvement on how it used to be.

Kitchen Refurb

With the old kitchen removed already by the customer, all that remained was to discuss exactly what the customer wanted in their 1 bedroom flat for a replacement. After a little guidance and deliberation, a neutral theme was decided with a view to perhaps letting the property.
