Types of Brickwork We Carry Out in Colchester
We carry out different varieties of brickwork in Colchester. They are as follows:
Garden walls can improve the aesthetics of your outside space and add value to your property.
Remember, the design of your garden wall will entirely depend on what you will be using it for. Footings Direct will design and plan every element to ensure it is appropriate for its need.
It is important to note that planning permission is necessary for garden walls above 1 meter in height constructed on public highways.
Whether you want to add an extra dimension to your garden or you require something more functional for preventing dirt and dust from accumulating into your property, Footings Direct will ensure that retaining walls will offer you an assortment of advantages.
Retaining walls are constructed of good quality stone. They are specifically designed for keeping rocks and soil in place. We deal in different varieties of retaining walls which include anchored walls, gravity walls and cantilever walls.
Our retaining walls can prove to be highly beneficial around areas sloping down towards homes. They will help you in preventing debris and soil from spilling down onto the landscape of your property.
So, you can remain assured of getting complete protection during rainstorms when runoffs can ultimately weaken the soil, causing it to spill down slopes.
There are different types of home extensions. Some people prefer extending their homes upwards while others extend into lofts, whilst others prefer side extensions and downward extensions.
When it comes to the most popular home extensions, the side extensions are generally favoured as they help homeowners in extending the sides of their homes with anything from the first or the second-floor extensions to porches and even conservatories.
With a plethora of options available, there are good reasons why homeowners might benefit from going for our home extension services.
Our home extension services will help property owners in making the most of external space; to gain another reception room or bedroom; to make a kitchen a large entertaining space, for storage, complete home remodelling or maybe an additional bathroom. Not only do home extensions maximise space and enhance your living area, they add value to your property too.
Our new-build solutions will help you realise all construction requirements. We deal with traditionally constructed homes and more contemporary builds.
We at Footings Direct are experts at undertaking all the different facets of building, building control and liaising with the planning departments so our clients can enjoy stress-free developments.
The experienced architects working for our firm have years of experience designing and sizing beautiful homes for our customers.
Driveways, whether new or the old ones repaired or replaced to look new, bring in many advantages.
Crumbling driveways do not just make the home look uncared for and unattractive but might take a lot of time just to be cleaned and maintained.
Our decorative stone and block paving driveways serve as one of the best options when it comes to having long-term and low maintenance outside areas. These require a single jet wash to keep looking fantastic.
Our driveways are more affordable than frequent repairs, and they even add considerable value to homes. They can serve as a great means of personalising homes and making them look really well-cared for.
The other name for block-paving is brick-paving, and it is one of the best decorative ways of creating hard-standing or pavements. One of the greatest advantages of going for brick instead of other materials is that individual bricks can easily be lifted and even replaced if they start wearing out or get damaged entirely.
Bricks used for block-paving are generally made of clay or concrete and sometimes composite materials.
Using our assortment of specialist and exclusive vehicles, we can provide varying amounts of aggregates and topsoil directly on-site. Our concreting services are available in different blends and grades.
We offer concrete in varied shapes suitable for large scale projects. Our concreting services are known for their durability, thermal properties and strength.
Maintenance & Repair Work
We specialise in brickwork maintenance and repair using both modern materials and traditional methods. The brickwork maintenance and repair solutions we provide look original and we ensure they will match existing brickwork.
Different maintenance and repair jobs that we have carried out over time show great workmanship and attention to detail.
Brickwork can start wearing down and get damaged because of several factors like general ageing and weather. This can further cause the walls to get damp and cause serious problems.
Careful maintenance and replacement of brickwork are only solutions to this problem. Our brickwork restoration services will help you with this!
