Work carried out by Harrogate-based Derry Construction proves that fine old buildings can be cost-effectively converted whilst still being able to conserve or enhance period detail
As well as refits, Derry Construction also offers fixed cost design-and-build services, acting very much as a sort of 'one stop shop' for homeowners and commercial customers with a range of budgets.
Three shabby flats are to be transformed into one house to be proud of. The Regency features are all evident, and craftsmen from Derry Construction Ltd are painstakingly stripping and refurbishing sliding bow windows, doors, panelling, skirting boards and ceiling mouldings.
Attention to detail saves valuable arhitectural components which others may consign to skips. Deep skirtings, doors, panelling, 170-year-old sliding bow windows and ceiling mouldings are painsatkingly stripped and repaired to recover their crisp clean lines. The original windows and doors have been upgraded with double glazing, weather gaskets and security devices without detracting from the original.
