A significant amount of people incorrectly use the term ‘property renovations’ interchangeably with ‘refurbishments’. Services relating to each specific term have very different approaches and results. Typically, refurbishments focus on basic repair, maintenance and decorating work. Conversely, property renovations occur on a much larger scale, but can include elements of refurbishment.
A renovation involves the retrofitting or replacement of old features to return a property back to its original condition. Refurbishment work can then further enhance the more superficial elements.
Our building company manages property renovations from concept through to completion. We work closely with homeowners in Bicester, ensuring we make all the right alterations, repairs and replacements. Our team takes the time to analyse the available budget and timescale so we can structure our work for a successful renovation with no delays.
Property and Home Extensions
Property and home extensions share almost identical characteristics. The only caveats for our builders remain whether they occur in the domestic or commercial sector. Extensions involve the addition of a new room to an existing structure over one or more storeys, usually to create additional living or working space due to the growth of a family or business.
Our builders have a portfolio of successful home extensions and commercial property extensions behind them, with many completed in and around the Bicester area.
For clarity, property and home extensions make use of vacant land surrounding the original property while conversions focus on available space within it. While this means sacrificing part of the garden, the resulting build provides our clients with valuable indoor space they can use as a bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, a home office and much more.
Most lofts add very little benefit to the lives of Bicester homeowners. In most cases, they do little more than store clutter. Loft conversions free up these underused spaces, allowing our clients a unique opportunity to maximise the potential of their home. Due to permitted development rights, most loft conversions do not need any planning approval or discussions with local authority departments.
Loft conversions combine a multitude of trades, including builders, joiners, carpenters, plumbers and electricians. Our building company provides the necessary tradesmen for every project as a single contractor.
DJT Builders (Oxfordshire) Ltd constructs loft conversions in the four main styles: dormer, Mansard, hip-to-gable and conversions with roof lights. We work directly from the roof inwards, so you never have to worry about disruption to family life or the prospect of damage to carpets, flooring and furnishings as a result of foot traffic, debris and dust.
