How we made a Bespoke base unit for porch in Sutton, Surrey
Last week, we started a small project, designing, supplying, fitting and painting a base unit in a porch.
The job was done for a previous customer, who lives in Sutton, Surrey. He came to Builderplus for help designing his big porch furniture. He needed hidden pipes and a gas meter. He also needed a space to store shoes. When we started the job, everything looked like this:

After fitting the base for the floor, and leveled it, we started fitting the base cupboard, the cupboard was already made in our workshop. The carpenter spent a few days making it, and the painter spent a few days to prime, undercoat and put one coat of white paint. Once we fitted all the boxes and the top with decorative molding, our job looked like this:

After this, all that was left was the job for the painter, as we had already put mastic all around, and filled all the little holes from the nails of the nail-gun. All adjustments for the doors have also been done. After the painter came and done some preparation to paint, and painted the final coat it looked like this:

The customer was very happy with the end result, and promised to leave a review. We hope he recommends us to his friends.

Maintenance for Windows
We have received lots of calls from customers all with the same problem. Windows are rotten. Yes, English weather is too damp. This ruins everything made from wood. Because of this, we shoulden't forget about window maintenance. Very often, we replace sills, and always try to use sills from hardwood. Before fitting the sill, we prime, undercoat and paint once. After installation we fill all the joints, and then add another final coat of paint. Normally, we recommend our customers to do the maintenance for the windows every 4years. We charge normal sized windows around £300, for Carpentry maintenance and repainting. We thunk this doesnt cost that much to keep your windows in a good condition.

Congratulations, summer has started, but .........

Summer is the time for breaks, and Builderplus wishes everyone to have happy holidays!
At the same time resting in Spain, France or other places, you cant forget that winter will come soon, and you need to think about your windows, sash windows, casement windows, or front doors, back doors, or french doors. What condition are they in? Very often, you can fix old windows or doors, without spending much money. You can do drought proofing, and this will improve the condition of your windows or doors. If you cant fix them, and parts are rotten. If you want strong, new windows or doors, then its better to contact a building company, and renew them.
We offer high standard services, you can have a look at our previous jobs.

Kind regards,
