Building and Property Maintenance in Dorking | Your Questions Answered

One of the cornerstones of our building and property maintenance company is good two-way communication. Located in Horley, D & R Carpentry Ltd covers the surrounding Surrey and West Sussex areas. Dorking is an important service location for our business. We work closely with our customers to ease any concerns they might have about new builds and property extensions, and to help them choose suitable design options for loft conversions and bathroom installations.

 

On this page, we let our builders and tradesmen take the floor to answer some of the more common questions we receive from customers in the nearby Dorking area.

 

Does your company have good credentials?

 

Yes. All personnel on our team carry CSCS cards and have the appropriate qualifications for their trades. Our business is a member of the Federation of Master Builders and the Association of Master Tradesmen. We also have approval from Surrey Trading Standards and have an excellent Checkatrade rating of 9.68 (February 2019). Very few builders and tradesmen in the Dorking area have credentials quite as good as these.

 

Our accreditations and qualifications inspire trust in our building and property maintenance services, and show that we can deliver loft conversions, property extensions and bathroom installations with appropriate levels of consumer protection in place for the customer.

 

Can you adapt loft conversions to suit any type of home?

 

We can. D & R Carpentry Ltd already has a sizeable number of successful loft conversions in its portfolio and our builders have worked with the most common dormer, mansard and hip-to-gable styles many times in the past. We have also transformed attic spaces with the addition of rooflights, which allow for the natural transfer of sunlight in what is traditionally one of the darkest areas of a Dorking property.

 

Whichever style we recommend for your home. D & R Carpentry Ltd specialises in bespoke loft conversions and tailors the design not just to the specification of the property, but also to the needs of the customer.

 

Our builders and tradesmen can even equip conversions with bathroom installations.

 

Are property extensions costlier than moving home?

 

Let’s take a look at the bigger picture. A move to a bigger home leaves you with a bigger mortgage to pay off and significant bills for removals, estate agents fees, stamp duty and other associated costs. Add in the price of property maintenance work to bring your new home up to a habitable condition, should you need to, and you could spend just as much on moving as you would on one of our property extensions.

 

We also remind our Dorking customers that the town is a good school catchment area, and that property extensions provide a respectable return on investment in later years. Combine them with one of our kitchen or bathroom installations to get the best possible value from our builds.

 

Can your company handle all types of property maintenance?

 

Yes. In addition to builders, we can also assign carpenters, joiners, electricians, plumbers and heating engineers to your property maintenance project. This means D & R Carpentry Ltd can manage all aspects of the job from start to completion without our Dorking customers having to hire in extra contractors for the things we can’t do ourselves. Taking full control over the project helps us to work inside tighter budgets and timeframes.

 

We can work on any type of home or business, and we also provide property maintenance services to keep loft conversions, conservatories and property extensions in good condition.

 

If you would like us to refurbish or remodel a room, D & R Carpentry Ltd is a specialist in kitchen and bathroom installations. We source, supply and fit to give Dorking homeowners an inclusive brand of service that helps them to realise their design aspirations.
