Choosing the Right London Builder

Finding a good builder can be a stressful task. There are a lot of cowboys out there and the results of dodgy work can take a toll on your psyche and your bank balance.

However, doing a little bit of research at the outset will protect you against a dodgy builder trying to pull a fast one.

Personal recommendations are always the best way to start when choosing a London builder for a large building project.

Choose at least three builders to offer you quote.  Ask for a written quote with a detailed breakdown of charges. You don’t want any nasty surprises at the end when you discover something you thought was included but your builder says is not.

Before finally selecting your builder in London always ask to see previous examples of their work. Visit at least three properties they have worked on previously, and talk to their former customers about the quality of their work, and overall approach.  Did they turn up on time, was the project completed on time. Did they clean up afterwards.

When your building project is underway, set aside time to understand the plans and project, and visit the builders regularly on site.

Following these simple steps will ensure your building works go smoothly without any nasty surprises.

Starlet Building is a London builder that always offers a detailed quote, and our customers are encouraged to visit past and present projects to check the quality of our workmanship.

Fitted Kitchen Design Ideas

The style, design, and construction of the fitted kitchen has changed dramatically in the last few decades.

Busy and hard working families have less time to cook these days, often preferring easy to make ready meals or other quick and convenient dishes. Many families now have their breakfast and evening meal in the kitchen too, or they invite friends for dinner. As a result fitted kitchens have become more stylish than purely functional reflecting people’s personal taste.

Whether you are a Jamie Oliver or an amateur in the kitchen the layout needs to be practical and labour saving for today’s busy families, with the sink close to the hob, the fridge within easy reach of the worktop, and pull-out cupboards for easy removal of crockery.

Investing in a good quality kitchen can add to the value of your property. To maximise the value potential the fitted kitchen needs to be one which meets the needs and taste of most people likely to be interested in your property.

At Starlet Building we offer kitchen installation services in London, that will help you create a functional space that will look good and reflect your personal style  We offer a wide choice of finishes, door styles, and work surfaces as part of our kitchen installation service.
