Cotswold Natural Stone Builders
If you are fortunate enough to live in one of the beautiful listed or heritage buildings in the Oxford area, you will know that along with the pleasure of sharing your life with such an interesting space, comes the responsibility of its maintenance. Unlike more modern buildings, those protected with listed status require a higher standard than normal and should you wish to carry out any renovations or improvements, then you require a greater deal of expertise than most builders can provide. Carrying out improvements on any building necessitates a good knowledge of what is allowable, however working on listed or heritage properties requires an even greater understanding, as the prosecution can be sought against any work that doesn’t meet the necessary guidelines.
What to look out for:
As the guardian of such an important property, you can’t afford to employ builders who could jeopardize both the building and the project through their lack of experience or knowledge. Bromley and Gaines have a reputation as builders with the expertise to deal with projects on listed and heritage properties, having worked on many landmark buildings in the Oxford area. They have extensive knowledge of the rules and regulations surrounding work on such buildings, along with the use of the traditional materials often used in renovation projects.
One of the biggest challenges for the owners of heritage and listed buildings is how to extend them whilst being both sympathetic to the original building and also providing the necessary space. Whilst making improvements such as replacing windows requires careful research and planning, the work required to extend a heritage property, is even more important. Bromley and Gaines have vast experience in extending properties, in particular, garage conversions, which have become popular in recent years to ease overcrowding.
They provide a fully bespoke service, from design right through to completion, and are proud to show you their wide portfolio of work. Whatever work you are considering, Bromley and Gaines are happy to provide free quotes, included time projections, whether for a traditional building, listed or heritage, or a contemporary extension or conversion. You can rest assured that your project is in safe hands, from start to finish, with Bromley and Gaines.
