Three Short Videos Introducing Our Three Steps to Success When Undertaking Home Improvements, Conversions or Extensions.

STEP ONE - THE DESIGN PROCESS AND OBTAINING PLANNING AND BUILDING REGULATION APPROVALS

We listen to what you want to build and why you need the extra space. We then produce creative designs for you to consider and approve. Once you have approved your preferred design, we will submit your Planning and Building Regulation applications and liaise with the Planning Department to obtain the appropriate approvals for your project.

 

STEP TWO - FINDing THE RIGHT BUILDER AND SHOWING YOU HOW TO SAVE £1000'S OFF the cost of YOUR PROJECT

We can help you to find the right builder, at the right price, by inviting your preferred builders to tender for the work. We will show you where and how to save £1000’s at this critical stage of the process. We will also introduce you to our trade discounts and contacts.

STEP THREE - MAKING IN SURE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ARE PROTECTED AND YOUR CONTRACT IS LEGAL

We will help you to complete all of the relevant paperwork and documentation necessary to ensure you are protected throughout the build; from concept to completion of the works. 

 

USE OUR 3D DESIGN SERVICE TO unlock your propertY’s potential

Before investing thousands of pounds on improving your home, it’s advisable to have 3D photo like images produced to bring your ideas to life.  This way, when you sign off on your final design you know it is 100% what you want to be built. There are no grey areas with your builder and you will avoid furture disputes with the builder and/or the need to make unnecessary and costly changes during the build.

The One Stop Shop for all of your home improvement needs 

“I started buying kitchens, windows, doors etcetera almost 40 years ago and over the years my team and I have found the best places to purchase these items. When we opened our doors at Bricks and Pieces, back in 2009, we created a community. I suggested that our clients go out to the market to obtain quotations for the larger items that they needed to complete their dream home improvement.  I explained not only do many builders add their own mark up but they often have only 1 or 2 suppliers to choose from.  Even back then, we offered a “COMPARE A QUOTE” service.  Almost without exception, we were able to help our clients make significant savings for the same items without ever compromising on quality or specification. On the rare occasion we didn’t make our clients’ an additional saving, we completed a due diligence check on the supplier and if the results were positive, we invited the supplier to join our trusted community to benefit our future clients and paid our client £100 for the introduction. This is why we are still so confident we can deliver exceptional savings and quality to all of our clients”.
