Put simply, the term ‘renovation’ relates to the process of restoring something to a good state of repair. As a building contractor, that ‘something’ usually takes the form of a building, be it a poorly maintained residential house in Selby or Pontefract, or a dilapidated commercial property in York or the wider Yorkshire area.
Here at MH Wood Building Services, we take these run-down starting points and transform them into premises fit for modern use, all while maintaining the original structure.
Our team does this by adhering to the following steps:
1. Assessing the Existing Structure
We carry out a comprehensive assessment of the current structure in order to get a clear picture on the extent and severity of any structural problems. This insight aids us in uncovering issues that may have compromised vital features such as the brickwork and the foundations. In addition, this process also creates a solid platform from which we conduct the entirety of the project itself.
2. Prevent More Damage
Regardless of the extent of any issues found in the structural assessment, they can always get worse if not attended to. In order to perform efficient property renovations on time and within budget, we put certain damage limitation measures in place.
This action includes erecting temporary roofing, boarding up damaged windows and assembling a support scaffold. These measures not only minimise the likelihood of further damage to properties in Selby, Pontefract, York or the neighbouring areas, they also discourage would-be trespassers and vandals too.
3. Stabilising Services
Should we discover compromised foundations to any extent, rectifying this issue takes immediate priority. For property renovations to achieve long-term success, the foundations of the structure have to be in perfect condition.
As the building contractor of choice, we carry out a range of services dependant on the situation at hand. These usually include piling, underpinning or any other work associated with preventing lateral spread through the walls and roof. If a collapse remains possible, we insert props or steel beams.
4. Demolition & Clearance
Having stabilised the structure, we then go about stripping, demolishing and clearing work throughout the property. This reduces the premises to the essential features that we will incorporate into the property renovations that follow. Having concluded this step, only the stable shell of a structure remains. At this point, we carry out more inspections, including those on the damp-proofing and drainage system.
From here, property renovations in Selby, Pontefract, York and the Yorkshire area move from concepts to reality. Having created a blank canvas, we then produce a modern property, fully compliant with UK Building Regulations, within the shell of the original building.
For clients looking to create an entirely new property from scratch, we also provide a new builds service.
