With today's huge demand for extra living space a home extension or conversion can offer endless possibilities and for many homeowners can be the best value-for-money home improvement you can make - adding substantially to both the value of your property and your quality of life.
With a growing portfolio of completed projects from single storey extensions to simple internal alterations, we are confident that our experience and expertise can provide the best solution to successfully achieve any requirement.
Loft conversions play a large part of our day-to-day business and completed conversions range from VELUX, to Side & Rear Dormer, Mansard and Hip-to-Gable.
Not all loft spaces are suitable for converting into habitable space so it is important to get the right advice before setting your hopes on that much needed additional bedroom. At MS Build and Construct we have an experienced team in place who can guide you through the required process, offering the best advice possible from the start, which will enable you to fully understand your projects potential.
Basement conversions are becoming increasingly popular today with properties unable to extend upwards or outwards. Often a little more complicated than a traditional new build extension, basement conversions can offer huge potential as they generally work off the footprint of an existing property.
The teams at MS Build and Construct have worked on a number of basement conversions creating unique spaces from studys & offices to kids playrooms and general living areas.
Garages are often regarded as unused spaces and general storage areas for household items no longer wanted. They can however be a very cost effective way of extending your living area or adding a new room to a home or property.
Considerably less complicated to construct than a new-build extension (which is reflected in the cost), garage conversions can be the perfect solution to create a home office or study, utility room or to extend an existing living area. MS Build and Construct have successfully completed a number of garage conversions, for details please contact us to discuss.
Sometimes an internal/external refurbishment or renovation can be just the change that's needed, and with the assistance of MS Build and Construct that doesn't need to cost the earth.
At MS Build and Construct we can provide you with the professional advice and services to establish and achieve your requirements, whether this is part of a larger project or not. From simple painting and decorating to a complete property overhaul with new kitchens and bathrooms, we aim to provide consistent high levels of customer service from start to finish.
All projects are carefully managed by a dedicated project manager who will be the main point of contact throughout. Supervising the team and site works the project manager is always on-hand to offer guidance and to deal with any unexpected issues that can arise.
Experience has proven that effective communication is key to success and our project managers realise this more than most. Providing a vital role at all times throughout the process, this will be the person responsible for keeping you regularly up-to-date with site progress and liaising with third parties such as, client architects, building control and client based suppliers.
We are always happy to undertake work along-side a client appointed architect and work to client supplied drawings and details, providing they have been professionally prepared.
Although we don't provide 'in-house' design services, we have good industry connections who we recommend and work with on regular basis. As specialists in their field they are available to guide you through the construction process, which can be a confusing and stressful time. Services range from: initial survey and design, preparation of drawings and details, guidance through the planning / building regulation system and liaising and administering with local authorities.
A common misconception is that 'Planning' and 'Building Regulation' requirements are the same, this is incorrect. The Planning system addresses whether a project can take place and Building Regulations address the compliance of building standards. It is important to understand that even when Planning is not required, Building Regulations will be.
At MS Build and Construct we will advise and assist with all necessary procedures in order to get your project started and often recommend the use of a private Building Control company to ensure consistent communication throughout a project resulting in less potential delays and frustration.
Structural details are required under the current Building Regulations Act when any such work is taking place. This can involve removing a supporting wall or adding a new load, such as a new floor or roof onto an existing structure.
Prepared by a qualified structural engineer, these details assess, specify and justify the relevant structural requirements for your proposed works. The resulting calculations provide both Building Control and your builder with the correct details for size and specification of any required steel beams, lintels, posts or pad-stones.

Whether a requirement is to 'match existing' or to 'supply new throughout' most projects we undertake involve doors and windows of some sort. From timber framed sash, upvc casement and bespoke aluminium, we have vast experience in sourcing, refurbishing and installing all types of windows.
Today external 'sliding-folding' and 'bi-fold' doors are becoming a common feature in projects, available in a number of colours and finishes they frequently add the finishing touch to a home extension. And, along with standard timber, glazed upvc, or bespoke internal doors our specialist tradesmen are experienced in fitting and provide a high standard of finish.

Tiling can add the finishing touch to any Kitchen, Utility Room, Bathroom, En-suite Shower Room or Wet-room. And at MS Build and Construct our tilers at are experienced in laying and finishing most materials on the market today from ceramic, to porcelain, glass, mosaics and natural stone.
Whatever the intention, from simple 'splash-backs' to full area 'floor and wall tiling' (with or without underfloor heating), our teams are on hand to advise you on required quantities, grout colours and any necessary cleaning or aftercare treatments.
We are often asked while scaffolding is in place, to replace the odd roof tile or piece of broken guttering and whilst we would prefer to concentrate on re-roofing a complete property or replace an entire rainwater system our teams are happy to accommodate these additional works.
With loft conversions such a huge part of our business we have experienced roofers on hand to deal with most requirements from tiling to repairing or re-laying a felt roof and installing a seamless flat roof system.
Very rarely do we complete a project where external areas haven't been used to store materials or for building works. And, although our teams work in a conscientious manner, respecting a customers property and surroundings at all times, unavoidable damage can be caused over such a period.
MS Build and Construct regularly provide the services to lay stone or tiled patios, timber decking, driveways and re-turf garden areas on completion of a construction project.
