The building team at HD Property Services (Midlands) Ltd totally transformed the exterior of this property by converting the garage into a bedroom to create additional living space, along with installing new uPVC windows and exterior doors to the whole of the house.
The garage conversion included removal of old door, digging/laying foundations, brickwork, damp proof course, floor, wall & roof insulation, FENSA approved window installation, plastering, flooring & electrics.
