3 Bed Terraced House – UK Full Renovation

 

The refurbishment of this 3 bed property was a major undertaking due to significant damp issues throughout the house. After taking the walls back to the brick, we began our a full renovation of this terraced house.

 

Works undertaken included:

Eliminating damp issues:
  • Stripping plaster down to the brick to apply a full damp proof course
  • Inject ‘dry-zone’ at 12-15cm intervals along the base brick line
  • We applied a special rubber membrane for extra protection from damp
  • We layered the house with a skim and plaster and finished with a layer of waterproof plaster for triple protection
  • Finally, we painted on a special damp-resistant paint
  • Elsewhere in the house we found penetrating damp. To eliminate this issue we removed the old cement between the external brickwork and repointed with a waterproof cement
  • We capped the chimney to prevent rainwater coming in

 

House refurbishment:
  • Installation of a new fuse box to meet current regulations
  • Our client wanted 2 chimney breasts removing to create more space. We installed brackets to support the remaining stack
  • The ceilings were bowing so our team installed new ceilings
  • We laid laminate flooring throughout, with solid wooden boards for the staircase
  • Our team removed the wall that originally separated a bathroom from a small toilet room to create a large family bathroom
  • We installed an L-shaped shower bath, and added a mirrored cabinet for much-needed storage space
  • In the kitchen, we tiled the floor in a large, modern grey tile with classic white metro tiles on the walls
  • For warmth and texture, we used a walnut colour worktop which worked beautifully with the handleless, white gloss units
  • Finally, in the back-yard, we built in flowerbeds, paved the floor and added a striking wooden cladding to the side
