Home Building & Property Refurbishments Limited

  • Renovation and upstairs extension - with planning permission approved

    We first looked at hiring Home Building and Property Refurbishments because they were competitively priced, showed up on time and could fit us in over the summer (they’d had a cancellation). Speaking to previous clients who raved about Mike and the team clinched the deal. 3.5 months on, my job’s been done on budget and ahead of schedule and I couldn’t be happier.

    They took what could have been a really stressful time for us, and made it so that the highlight of many days this summer was stopping by the site and checking out the miracles the guys had been working.

    All the work has been done to a very high standard. They’ve also done a bunch of extras (not charged for) that I didn’t know enough to ask for and am now benefiting from.

    The team’s wealth of experience allowed them to deal with the challenges thrown by my crumbling Victorian semi with a calm ‘we’ve got this’ approach.

    They provided cost-saving suggestions that didn’t compromise design or build quality. Suggested a few improvements to better use the space.

    They were proactive, approachable, punctual, tidy and an extremely capable group.

    They took care of building regs and inspections and struck a good balance between not stressing me out with small stuff, and consulting me on things I care about.

    These guys are a dedicated, professional knowledgeable team and if you’re fortunate enough to have them work with you on your build - I’d say go for it.

  • Renovation of early 20th century semi-detatched house

  • Small extension and house refurbishment - plans in place, permissions in progress

    I can honestly say it’s quite tough to find decent builders out there. I thank my lucky stars that Mike from Home Building and Property Refurbishments came along.
    Genuinely one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met, and Mike and his team are doing a fantastic job.
    We are renovating a bungalow through private money and a DFG grant as the house is being adapted for my daughter who is severely disabled and another young chap with similar disabilities.
    Mike has made the whole process so easy and with NO stress... a first when using a builder.
    Mike and his team have genuinely gone above and beyond with what they are doing.
    They have built a small adapted bathroom extension, widened all doors and hall, placed ramps for access and new paths , replaced a roof for a skypod, put in bifold doors, replaced the whole front garden with adequate parking for 2 Motorbility cars, all new wood floors, decorating and plastering and too many other building jobs to mention.
    We couldn’t be more pleased with the workmanship and attitude of all the team and the work is not far from completion. I’m that confident of the finished job I’ve done the review prior to completion.
    The office team are also amazing at communicating with you, sending quotes and specs and keeping you up to date.
    I highly recommend Mike and his team, best builder I’ve ever used by a mile!
    Many thanks
    Gary & Jacqui Thomasson

  • Complete renovation of house

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Two storey extension provides a dressing room and en- suite to the main bedroom whilst increasing the hallway space and adding additional length to the garage. The project over-ran by a a few weeks mainly due to delays by the solar panel installer in removing the panels and then refitting them. This was outside of the control of Mike Harman and his team. We are delighted with the end product which has exceeded our expectations. Mike Harman kept us up to date on a daily basis with a progress report and what work was planned ahead.

    Michael Harmans company has completed several building projects for me recently at different locations. These include demolition of an internal wall, enlarging kitchen, fitting new kitchen and all associated remedial work. A garage conversion to a bedroom and bathroom repairs to several rental properties. The work has been carried out to a good standard with a high degree of reliability. I was kept informed of the progress and of any problems that inevitably arose. I intend to use his company on a larger forthcoming project.
