- Fix damp problem on south wall
- Insulate and warm up existing loft conversion
- Give the exterior a facelift
- Landscape garden and driveway
We started the project by removing the roof, and removing two chimneys and adding Celotex throughout for good insulation. We then added a TLX gold felt – this has a very good u-rating (adds warmth) and then used rosemary red pan tiles on top. These tiles are smooth so stop moss from growing and helps keep the appearance fresh and clean.
Scaffolding was put up in order to allow us to widen the eves spaces, and then we cladded the upper sections in Cederal weather boarding (very good for seaside properties)
We replaced four leaking old windows for new ones – this was an instant fix for some of the damp and cold problems. We also replaced four new velux windows in the roof as the old ones were also leaking.
Whilst we had the scaffolding up we replaced facias and and extended the soffets (for appearance) and added extra wide contemporary guttering. And then finished off the facelift with K-rend – a very good rendering for seaside properties.
Other jobs included adding new sliding doors on the rear of the property and also a single door to the laundry. And then the garage was cladded in Cederal weather boarding to match in with the upper half of the house.
Out the front we dug up the lawn and laid buff stones instead to make extra space for parking and to reduce the amount of maintenance, and edged the flower beds in Marshals red pavers (to compliment the roof tiles). And finally we added a new composite front door with side lights and finished off the look with a brazilian slate doorstep.
We think you’ll agree that this house now has the wow factor!
