The boys worked very hard and efficiently in a very confined area to construct a new drainage system and a concrete path. A new access gate was also well made and fixed. Job very well done,we are very happy with what has been achieved. We recommend Legacy Restoration without reservation. Eddie and Heather More...

All the team are polite, friendly, very helpful and accommodating and their work is to a high standard and nothing is to much trouble. They cleared/cleaned and decorated a 2 bedroom flat for me in just over 2 days and at very reasonable rates. Excellent company and people. I would highly recommend and will do, and would not be afraid to ask them to carry out work for me or my family /friends again. More...

We are awaiting an estimate for our renovation project, following a visit to site. Legacy Restoration would appear to be very experienced and professional, but we have no first hand knowledge of their work, although the examples on their website are certainly very interesting.

Right from the start of our visit to the shop - which, if we had gone there first would have saved a load of hassle! - we were treated with professionalism and warmth. The quote was just what we had asked for detailed and accurate. Chris was amazing in that he was able to accommodate us so quickly as the kitchen was at completion stage. George, his highly professional fitter, did an absolutely wonderful job. Nothing was too much trouble. The quality of his work was incredible and the end result was stunning he always tidied up as he worked and at the end of the day. We would highly recommend Endurnce Flooring, they do just what they say and you will never be disappointed. More...

Recently had our entire house carpeted and tiled with this company and would highly recommend.
The whole process was excellent and we are thrilled with the finish. They managed to fit our job in at short notice even though they were busy and this greatly assisted us especially as we were in the middle of a difficult house move. They have excellent knowledge and skills in this business and this gave us great confidence. More...

Q&A

Need to check the foundations. Make sure that it is capable of taking the extra load if you are going up as well. Don't assume that just because it is attached to the building that the foundations are adequate.

Plans. Get plans together of what it is you want the room to be used for.
Change of usage. This is why you need the plans. When you approach the council for planning permission, you will need to have what you using it for and what it will look like when completed. If large conversion, it would help to have an architect involved as they can also help with the planning permissions. Remember none of these are free, so not as easy to acquire as you might think and it all takes time, so be prepared for a bit of a wait.
Then when everything is in place, you put you job out to tender for builders to quote on the works.

Two main structures are used for roof construction — namely traditional framed type and truss section type. The traditional framed type is typically found in pre-1960s houses where the rafters and ceiling joists, together with supporting timbers, are cut to size on site and assembled. This type of structure has more structural input, so is often the most suitable type for attic conversions. The space can be easily, and relatively inexpensively, opened up by strengthening the rafters and adding supports as specified by a structural engineer.
Post 1960s, the most popular form of construction used factory-made roof trusses. These utilise thinner – and therefore cheaper timbers – but have structural integrity by the addition of braced diagonal timbers. They allow a house roof to be erected and felted in a day. However, this type of truss suggests that there are no loadbearing structures beneath, and so opening up the space requires a greater added structural input.
This will normally involve the insertion of steel beams between loadbearing walls for the new floor joists to hang on and the rafter section to be supported on — together with a steel beam at the ridge. This added structural input requires skill, knowledge and equipment that would limit scope as far as DIY is concerned — and a far greater cash outlay.

Works will commence with the erection of independent scaffolding.
First delivery of materials – ie structural steels, joisting timbers etc.
An opening is made in the roof for access – initial works are completed externally, so minimising internal disturbance (approx 3/4 weeks)
Floor joisting carried out – following which the local authority Building Inspector will visit to approve floor construction.
If a dormer conversion, the dormer will next be constructed, insulation installed, followed by a further inspection by the Building Inspector.
Completion of external works – ie roofing of dormer, lead work, fascias, soffits, guttering.
Internally, erecting studwork walls, forming bedrooms/ensuite/stairwell access. Insulating walls to required standard.
Fitting dormer windows/Velux windows.
Creating access to facilitate installation of new staircase and fitting new stairs.
Installing new cabling for lighting, sockets, Expelair, smoke alarms etc.
First fix plumbing to new ensuite and additional radiator(s).
Plastering all new areas.
Second fix carpentry works – ie skirtings, architraves, doors, handrail, spindles etc.
Second fix works for electrics (upvc fittings installed) and plumbing (sanitary ware, radiators etc).
Clearing down – including guttering inspection.
Final inspection by Building Inspector who issues Completion Certificate (all works having complied with building and fire regulations).
The new loft is now ready for decoration and habitation.

With Legacy Restoration ltd 3 Years.
As builders 18yrs Respectively as there are four brothers involved. As well as our close nit team, some of whom have been in the trade for over 40 years.

We offer standard guarantees on workmanship and all are passed by building control.
However we do not just walk away from our clients.
Currently we still hold keys for every property we have ever done, well almost all. As we still do all the maintenance on these properties.
We are there for as long as you want us.

Every thing. We love to work. love the fact that we are there to make peoples dreams come true.
And its so great meeting new people and trying to come up with new ideas for people, some times things they never thought they could do or just couldn't see.

Got fed up with people saying they were being ripped off. We thought we could maybe put a stop to it, by offering a service people could trust in. Its hard work sometimes, as more often than we would like people still think that a low price means value for money.

We aren't out to be millionaires, we just want to work and make dreams become reality. If you are happy so are we.
I know that sounds cliché, but its true. Meet us and find out. If your not happy you can always get someone else. Its always up to you. Your money.
