PLANNING AND PREPARATION
As you know our planning and preparation is meticulous, encompassing the following:
- If your house was built before 2000, there’s a chance it could contain asbestos. To check for this, we’ll complete an asbestos survey which will show if it needs to be removed by a licensed contractor before our work starts.
- We check where electricity supplies enter the property and turn these off before working on or near any existing cables.
- We make sure all structural alterations and propping systems are accurately planned and installed properly.
- We ensure only Gas Safe Registered engineers remove or alter a flue, or install a disconnected gas appliance.
Generally, the existing timbers in your roof won’t be strong enough to support the new floor, so new timber work and, most often, steelwork will need to be installed as the span is normally too much for existing timber beams. We make sure any changes to your roof are built correctly so they don’t affect the structure of your roof.
