At London Building Renovation we care about the details. Our passion is the housing stock of the Victorian and Edwardian period. We take pride in using period correct materials and detailing and prefer to restore wherever possible. We are experienced building and roofing contractors with a history of tackling difficult projects, alongside more mainstream building.
In addition to membership of the FMB we are members of the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (with whom we are registered solar panelling installers), FENSA registered window installers, and all skilled operatives have undertaken training at the VELUX Academy. We are particularly proud to have recently been accepted as a Team Icopal Approved Contractor. Icopal are an international flat roof product manufacturer. In conjunction with them we are able to offer a manufacturers’ guarantee on most flat roof installations.
We undertake our own drawings for planning applications and will be pleased to provide you with a price for our design and build services.
Our loft extension foreman has been carrying out loft conversions across London for 10 years and we are proud of the speed and quality we can offer.
Extension and structural alterations form a major part of our work- speak with us before undertaking this sort of project as our extensive knowledge in this area can really make your project a success.
We undertake a great deal of exterior structural work, often tackling jobs that many firms do not wish to undertake; we recently rebuilt a late Victorian failed flank wall in a conservation area after developing a system of rebuilding the brickwork in strategic panels. Using lime mortar we rebuilt the entire end of the house before applying a lime render over. This sympathetic approach towards our aging housing really does separate London Building Renovation from other builders. Our understanding of old buildings and systems used to construct them has enabled us to correct many problems from poorly advised “improvements” such as cement rendering.
We are passionate about period details, slate roofs, cast iron guttering, correctly functioning chimneys, timber-frame sash windows, internal and external cornice details, stained glass and period correct entrances.
If you are looking for a building contractor who really does care about the aesthetics and minor details we would be delighted to hear from you with a view to carrying out a job for you.
