About hughes renovations

I've been in construction since leaving school 20 years ago where I completed a 3 year apprentiship in decorating with a large painting contractor after completing the course I became self employed and have been a sole trader ever since. 8 years later I felt I would benefit from doing a carpentry apprentiship and have been doing a mix of the 2 trades ever since, along with other skills i've picked up along the way such as tiling. I've worked on a few new build projects but mainly renovations, I'd worked as a sub contractor until my early thirties, gaining valuable experience and in the last 10 + years I've fully renovated properties for both myself and for private clients. I've recently completed a large modern extension with a lot of future proof energy saving materials, which I'm happy to advise on. I've converted garages in to habitable spaces. I also help manage the projects, there are myself and Alex both multi skilled tradesmen full time and then I bring in other trades when required to complete a project, of which I feel I have a enough contacts to never hold up the progress on most projects.

  • 3-bedroom flat refurb Cheltenham

    You will honestly not find a better person than Josh to undertake a renovation/construction project.
    We had had a bad experience with a contractor that disappeared, leaving our project delayed and costing money while we had to find someone new.
    We contacted 15 or so builders/companies, met with eight of them and finally decided to go with Josh. We were renovating a badly neglected 3-bed period flat from top to bottom: All new plumbing, heating, Electrics, Kitchen, Bathroom, re-plastering walls from water damage, restoring wooden floors, replacing a ceiling, insulating the loft etc. plus dealing with the curveballs that a 200-year-old building throws at you once you scratch at the surface.
    We live 100+ miles away from the property so Josh was also managing the project day-to-day in our absence. This could have been a complete nightmare for us but Josh kept us informed and ran it very smoothly. The other trades that he works with are just as skilled, reliable and reasonable as he is, which says a lot about how they operate.
    These guys are just very good at what they do and really nice to deal with, no drama at all.
    110% recommend!

  • Cottage / Annex Renovation in Stoke Orchard

    Wow, what can I say, Josh and his team did an excellent job. He has recently completed the complete renovation of our annex into a premium holiday let property.

    He was extremely quick and efficient, yet has a very high standard of work. His craftsmanship is excellent and can turn is hand to a variety of jobs.

    He helped with recommending and arrange all the different trades we needed to get the job done too which was a god send.

    We're extremely pleased with the result and would certainly contact him again in the future if we needed any more work doing.

    I couldn't recommend him highly enough

  • Stud walling, internal doors and kitchen

    Josh is a very dedicated workman who is very fussy about his standard of work. He can do a wide range of work and prices fairly and transparently. He is strongly recommended and I would use him again in future.
