Over the years, Bromley & Gaines has earned huge acclaim as the recommended builder of choice by residents of Summertown and the nearby towns and villages, many of whom have become repeat clients. The superior quality of the company’s design, build, and project management is well known. Because of its involvement in the area over many years, the company has established an intimate knowledge of the building code relevant to Summertown. Because some buildings within Summertown and its surrounding villages are constructed from Cotswold stone and are listed, whilst others are of specific architectural interest; it has been important for Bromley & Gaines to develop close working relationships with the Oxford City Council planning department responsible for building applications in Summertown. This broad understanding of local building regulations helps to ensure that, when your project requires planning permission, the application complies with all current building regulations specific to the area and hence, will be looked upon favourably.

If you have an urge to relocate from elsewhere; Summertown, as a northern suburb of the City of Oxford has much modern-kitchento offer. The area is located north of St Giles and has a popular shopping area consisting of many independent businesses. Just north of the centre of the University city of Oxford, in a part of England known as the Thames Valley, Summertown has excellent transport facilities. The suburb is also within easy reach of Bicester and Banbury. Although there are limited new housing developments within Summertown itself, there are plenty new builds in and around the region. Many of the villages within close proximity of Summertown are known for being picturesque and retain their original Cotswolds charm. Among them are, Woodstock (home of Blenheim Palace), Bletchingdon, Bladon, Kirtlington and Weston-on-the-Green.

Existing residents of Summertown will already be aware of its attractions, so moving home to a different location is probably unlikely. However, as situations change, you may start finding certain aspects of your current home to be limited, creating a need for extra space. Rather than move home, it is often more advantageous to avoid the hassles this entails by considering different ways of improving your existing property. This can usually be achieved quite easily by employing a good builder that can assist you from the planning stage through to completion. You might be consider creating an extra room by extending your property; converting your garage; or by adding a loft extension. If you need to make better use of the space you have available, you could think of having two smaller rooms turned into one (known as ‘knock-through’). This is a specialist job that can be carried out by Bromley & Gaines and includes introducing steel re-enforcement (RSJ) and brick piers as well as plastering and adding all electrics.
