Morgan Ritchie Property Services
How long have you been in business?
Morgan Ritchie Property Services first started in 2000, when we were more involved in providing our services for letting agents, over that period of time we have gathered experience and important contacts of the period of time which have lead to us becoming preferred contractors for lettings agents. These agents have supplied us with work throughout London and the Home Counties. We now have a varied portfolio of clients in and outside the letting agent market., transparent free estimates give every potential client the opportunity to see exactly what work is required and the cost of individual areas they require.
What guarantee does your work come with?
Our work is completed to a high standard and carried out by professional trades people, and our estimates mirror this, whether a refurbished bathroom or kitchen you can expect to be charged between £6000 and £10000 fully fitted with a guarantee on the work we carry out for you and equally as important to your satisfaction before the final payment. Decorating a bedroom or reception will be estimated at between £400 and £600 for labour alone but once again our guarantee of work to the highest standard. Our skilled builders will carry out a complete house refurbishment that ranges from £50000 upwards. All our work carries a guarantee of what we carry out after the estimate is agreed, small or large!
What do you love most about your job?
The satisfaction of a job done to a professional standard.
What inspired you to start your own business?
One size does not fit all and so we saw a gap in the market to provide a transparent and personal maintenance service to cater for all London areas and the Home Counties. where we think each job, big and small, has a independent requirement. We have also now developed a portfolio of overseas clients who have property in the UK and need professional trades people to maintain there property while being rented so giving them a clear and detailed up date of all work that is needed or being carried out, this has recently happened with clients from both America and Canada.
Why should our clients choose you?
Trust, personal service, transparent detailed free estimates no matter the size of the job, we have also recently been awarded The Certificate of Excellence from Bark, which we are very excited about and mention with pride and hard work by all of our team. Our work carries a guarantee and we have public liability cover of £2,000,000.. We have professional trades people in all the residential decorating, maintenance, refurbishing covering all the services required to inside and outside, completing the jobs to a very high standard.
Victoria House Refurbishment
One of our recent and successful projects, complete refurbishment from top to bottom including basement of a Victorian 3 bedroom house. This house needed plastering, decorating, new kitchen, bathroom, new floors and carpets throughout, and work carried out to improve garden. Before work started we had to remove and dispose of many house contents that were left by the landlord. In need of a full refurbishment this was a big and demanding project that was carried out with full transparency and the landlord updating on a week by week until full completion. The house was rented by the first and successful applicant.
Adding a Touch of Class
We have just completed requested decorating and gardening to a property in East London. The project was to bring the hall,l stairs and landing up to a professional standard, including painting to wooden flooring. Part redecorating to 2 bedrooms and floor painting to a bathroom and bedroom, all to be completed within the landlords budget. The mature garden also need an uplift which again our services carried out. Finally ahead of the tenancy professional cleaning throughout. It was nice to known that both the landlord and new tenant were pleased.
Refurbishment in Wanstead East London
We are very proud of the finished re-decoration to the front external of the lovely house in Wanstead, and a full refurbishment to its 4 bedroom, bathroom, cloakroom, reception, dining room, kitchen and conservatory. We also carried out garden maintenance and professional cleaning. Our client who is currently living aboard has been very happy with our work and service in up dating them on each and every step of the work carried out. This property has now been rented successfully to a family recently moved into the country.
Bathroom refurbishment in Manor Park
After extensive water damage to the apartments main bathroom we had to remove all fixtures and fittings, taking the bathroom back to a shell. We double lined the walls and ceiling and skimmed and prepared before tiling and painting. We boarded the floor and before tiling layed Detramat [a must before floor tiling, this makes the floor area water tight and holds the tiles, the grout all in places avoiding cracked tiles. Then as instructed we re fit bathroom with new fixtures and fittings, and accessories as we completed the final fix. Happy tenant and very happy landlord!
SE London water damage insurance project
After a water leak inspection that needed access to ceiling to kitchen ceiling was complete we were asked to quote to repair, re-plaster ceiling, make good walls and woodwork, then apply 2 coats to all surfaces. After competition our next job was to investigate to see if the leak had affected the hallway floor. The floor was found to be soaking wet under the laminate. We removed laminate, prepared for new covering and applied with satisfactory results for both the landlord and current tenant. The job was carried out in a very professional way with our very best professional contractors, all mess and rubbish cleared away and all concerned happy with the results and a tenant with a new floor and brighter kitchen.
This client requested our services to extend her kitchen through to the rear reception of this Victorian house, with our professional contractors a job we take on regularly. A structural engineer was asked to produce the plans required to know how many and where steel beams were required, a very important part of this type of work, one we would not attempt the work without. The findings were very important and showed previous building work to be inadequate and corner cutting. With the plans we could now move forward, but the costs had now risen due to past poor workmanship, this was all agreed with our client and could proceed. Removal of the wall, replaced, and new beams installed, 4 in total, other brickwork was required and with all the beams finally in places progress was good...........to be continued
One of my favorite parts of London is the areas around Victoria Park E9, this recent project through Bark was to freshener up a recent purchase by a young couple who had bought this charming 3 bedroom Victoria house with all it original features (shown above in our photo gallery) and requested painting to ceiling, coving and walls and cleaning to the woodwork give it their identity. The work included a large through reception. hallway, stairs and landing, and 3 bedrooms. They had a suitable budget and the work also included installing a dishwasher, garden tidying, repairing a broken window and some other hand work. We at Morgan Ritchie had all the suitable contractors to carry out all the work in a short period of time and at a cost they were happy with and satisfied with the end result.
Some months ago i visited a house in Wanstead East London where i carried out an estimate to a bathroom replacement to a new shower and all other bathroom fittings and redecorating and re-tiling. Our estimate turned out to be too high for the potential client and went with one of the other contractors who estimated. What happened next is not necessary due to the estimate but more to the clarification of professional workman and both estimate and work timetable and communication. The chosen contractor and then another did not complete the work leaving the owner with no bathroom for over 2 weeks, only the plumbed in toilet. Again the cause of this was due to lack of communication and what the work involved, the bathroom was left empty and 3/4 of the tiles removed and the rubbish left to the front drive area, and the owner out of pocket. We were glad we could help the owner as this position is not pleasant, we installed the bathroom to full use in 4 days, but during this we came across sub standard electrical work, and in one case dangerous to the fuse box where covers were not installed to live wiring. This is not the sort of project we like and only post the details so you can be aware of the 'pot holes' and to make sure you are clear what all parties will do and complete to the recognized and the legal standard. Make sure the estimate is detailed, transparent and any funds or deposits are fully documented and work to that level is complete before paying, an assure that the contractors can be contacted and give a guarantee to their work. If you need any further help after reading this please contact us, we will always help in any situations like the above.
