Home improvements done by the book will always pay off in the end

Home improvements done by the book will always pay off in the end

HOME improvement projects can be somewhat daunting and it can be difficult to find a trusted competent tradesman or company.

Kitchens, bathrooms and fitted bedrooms are costly refurbishments to have go wrong, and we have all heard the horror stories of where some homeowners have been unfortunate in placing work with unqualified tradesmen, with shoddy workmanship done and some that have simply made off with their money.

Not a lot of consumers are aware that having a new kitchen or bathroom refurbishment may often need to be notified to the local building control department and building regulations applied for.

If you appoint someone to do the work and they do not belong to a competent persons scheme or adhere to the building regulations — which can be found at www.gov.uk/building-regulations-approval — you should note that your local authority could make you pay for faulty work to be fixed.

Without approval you will not have the certificates of compliance you may need when you want to sell your home.

GD Evans Interiors have been trading in the Henley and Reading area for many years and director Gary Evans has 40 years’ experience in the construction industry. The firm is a corporate member of the Guild of Master Craftsmen as well as members of Stroma’s CPS Competent Persons Scheme to carry out plumbing installations of kitchens, bathrooms, water softeners, vented and unvented cylinders.

GD Evans Interiors can therefore carry out work without the need for customers to notify the local building control department and apply for building regulations to have the work done themselves with the associated costs to do so and issue a certificate of compliance issued on completion.

The firm can provide many quality references from clients that they have worked for in the area, providing first class service and quality workmanship and are authorised retailers for many quality manufacturers of kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms, with products that are often only found in high street studios, but without the high street showroom price tag.

They can also look after all aspects of home improvements, offering a complete home makeover service.This includes rewires, new heating, plastering, decorating, flooring and more.

An initial consultancy and design service is supplied, followed by CAD (computer aided design) images to help you visualise your completed project.

They also provide a fully project managed installation service too, managing all aspects of the project for you.

If you are planning any home improvements and want peace of mind in knowing that your home and investment is in capable hands, call Gary Evans of GD Evans Interiors on either (01491) 244244, 0118 9474744 or email info@gdevansinteriors
