Are you planning to ask your builder to start or restart building works in your home? There are many factors that need to be considered first. Builders and homeowners should work together to determine if it is safe to return to work. We have prepared guidance for consumers when determining whether to undertake building works at this time.

The job involved repair to the party wall of a terraced property at roof level, replacing lead work, and re rendering with drip bar. Internally, evidence of damp was removed repaired and re plastered; The quality of work throughout was excellent, and carried out promptly. Above all, regular and accurate communication between myself and Rhondda Damp Proofing, was a great benefit, providing confidence as the job progressed.
Strip and re tile pitch roof chalet type bungalow with hip roof extension and insulate bedroom in the roof. Richard carried out a comprehensive survey of the work and submitted a very fair price. We were kept well informed and during the work. Scaffolding was installed prior to the start date as arranged. Richard and Cliff were friendly, fast and efficient throughout the project and did an excellent job of stripping, re felting and re tiling the less than straightforward roof. Poorly done work by a previous builder/roofer was rectified, including a badly fitted sun tunnel to the kitchen. Richard replaced this with a bright LED light - a great improvement. The bedroom in the roof was insulated with Richard’s recommended product and we are already aware of the benefit. We are more than confident in recommending Elwood Builders and would certainly use them again. Great!

External wall insulation I received a fast response from the company, putting me in touch with a hard working, reliable well mannered team, who done the job in hand perfectly. but I must say that Shape up Construction were very prompt and professional.

Single story extension, creating an open-plan kitchen diner. The extension has a contemporary design with larch cladding and a black metal roof. Stone patio to the rear. Communication from TFR Property Improvements has been excellent throughout. From the tendering process through to completion I have felt very well informed and Ed has always responded quickly to any emails. The team were all very friendly, considerate and approachable. I was always kept up to date as to who was coming to site. Considering that this work was all done with a background of Covid and shortages of building materials, the team were all very thoughtful and every effort was made to ensure that materials were sourced, within budget, and alternatives agreed with myself,the architect and structural surveyor. We are very pleased with the finished result. The quality of the work is really good and we are getting great feedback from everyone who has seen it.
Garage conversion to a work room /bedroom plus storage room From start to finish we had a great job done. The guys were all brilliant and polite and friendly. We were kept informed all along the way and they managed to sort out supply issues along the way. We were told from the start that due to current Covid and supply shortages it would take longer than normal and Ed''s time scale was pretty close to the time it actually took. Very pleased with the finished job.
Exterior wall insulation Exceptional service from shape up and the team
External wall insulation on semi-detached house Bogdan was clear with the price and time-frame prior to the job. The team started the job at the agreed date and completed the work exceedingly quickly (about 1 week from start to finish for scaffolding, insulating, rendering and clearing up). I was happy with all the work completed and all workers were polite and friendly. For example, they queried with us before making any decisions regarding drain pipes, window sills etc. and asked permission before walking through the house and what sockets/water pipe to use etc. The team also was also knowledgeable of all the products and kit they used and answered all our questions before and during the job. They were also exceedingly good regarding payment as were happy to take payment for the entire amount after the job was completed. I highly recommend ShapeUp Construction to anyone wanting External Wall Insulation for their property.
