What do building services include?
Most builders are experienced in working with a range of different project types, tools, and materials, although some specialise in delivering a particular type of building service or skill. Some of the most common building services include:
New builds & renovations
Whether you’re planning a new extension or a renovation in an existing space, you’ll need a professional builder to draft up the plans and implement them. Drafting involves drawing objects and plans to scale with details to help guide the building or construction project. Some of the most popular types of renovation and installation projects include kitchen installations, bathroom renovations, and home extensions. If you need demolition, your builder can help organise and oversee the process before you start your build or renovation. Your building contractor will refer to the plans for ordering, measuring, and installing all the materials, and work with other contractors as needed to expertly build and finish the project.
Sheds & outdoor living
Want to improve your outdoor living areas or add extra storage space with a shed? Builders can help with outdoor projects like shed installation, gazebo installation, and even plunge pools. They can also help with installing patios or pergolas. Your building contractor can help with the entire process, from choosing the design and ordering the materials, to concreting and installing the foundations and structure. Finally, they can do the finishing touches, like rendering or shelving. Experienced builders will also check details like local rules and regulations to ensure your structure is compliant.
Need your driveway concreted? Your building contractor can help lay concrete for a new driveway, seal your driveway, or repair an existing driveway surface. They’ll recommend the best driveway materials so you get the design and function you want, before ordering the materials needed. They’ll prep the surface, excavating to ensure it’s level, compacting the ground, then reinforcing the edges with timber. They’ll use a concrete mixer, wheelbarrow, shovel, and trowel to mix and spread concrete, smoothing the surface as they go. To seal the concrete, your building contractor will need to wait a couple of weeks for it to fully cure, before spraying, rolling, or brushing the sealant onto the clean surface.

Filling a drafty hole above our front door
Hornsey, Greater London, N8
10th Dec 2019
During the installation of the front doorbell and security system, the workmen left a hole in the ceiling where the cables come through. We've noticed that there is a significant draft coming through and the corridor is very cold in winter. We would like to have this addressed to stop the draft. We hope it will simply involve filling and insulating the hole in the ceiling to stop the draft. Please note, we're presuming that the hole made in the ceiling is also exposed to the outside environment somehow, perhaps via the external hole the cables go through, but that this doesn't need to be addressed if the ceiling hole is closed. We welcome suggestions for the solution.
