Building Renovation Services

We undertake building renovation services and projects within a commercial or residential environment from office and shop refurbishment to domestic modifications.

About our Building Renovation Services

There are many different building renovation services that we carry out either within a commercial or a residential environment. Our projects show off what we have taken on before and give you an idea of what we can do for you. We have worked on colleges, school, residential homes and more, from a complete overhaul to a few tweaks here and there, we are able to work to your specifications.

At ALCO Decorating, we have single point contact project managers to help ensure that all aspects of our refurbishment and property maintenance services are undertaken to exacting standards and ensure they conform to your budget, schedule, and expectations. By having a single point contact project manager means that if any issues do arise, you know exactly who to contact and it should mean that the issue gets dealt with as soon as possible.

Services undertaken include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Audio visual/WI-FI – whether you want to set up cameras in or around he property, or set up a virtual classroom, we can help.
  • Bathroom Alterations – This can vary from adding some new tiles to completely redecorating a bathroom.
  • Bespoke furniture – If you have an idea in your head but you can’t seem to find it, we can help create something bespoke to your home.
  • Brickwork – to prevent your building from collapsing, we can provide brickwork both inside and outside of your property to help preserve it for many years to come.
  • Building automation – we can provide you with a variety of building automation tools, from CCTV to fire systems and more.
  • Decorating – we take on both large and small projects when it comes to decorating so we can cater to your needs whether it’s a single room or a whole building that needs a makeover.
  • Groundwork – the foundations of your property should always be a top priority, which is why we offer a service to make sure the groundwork of your property is stable.
  • Joinery – whether you need new window frames or new doors in your property, we offer a building renovation service to assist with this.
  • Kitchen Fitting – this can involve adding a new kitchen entirely or updating the one you already have in your property.
  • Landscaping/hardscaping – can involve putting in a new driveway or even updating your garden, whatever you need to add the finishing touches to your building.
  • Mechanical services – this can include services such as installing air conditioning to maintaining it either in your residential home or in a much larger scale.
  • Plastering/Dry lining/Rendering – we make sure the plastering in your building is done to the highest standards to prevent further issue in the future. We can also provide dry lining when you are in a rush and need to decorate instantly, and any rendering needs with our building renovation services.

  • Roofing – we make sure your roof is water-tight to prevent issues in the future. We can also give your roof a makeover if you are looking to change up your building’s appearance.

What our customers say about us

neil bouette
Tom and his team are excellent to work with - great fun, kind, careful, and willing to go the extra mile to make things right. They understood the vision for our unique project and added their own ideas to make it special. They gave a clear quote that they stuck to. The few extras that did arise were agreed in a fair and open way. The team worked around any challenges quickly and provided innovative solutions. I felt I had their full attention and no problem was too tricky. The smart technology they installed along with air-source heat pump and AC has given an extra dimension. The quality of the final build was great, both inside features and the stonework outside. I enjoyed working with Tom and would highly recommend Alco.
Elspeth O'donnell
A difficult job working between 2 flats but the men were very considerate and lined up each trade as the jobs progressed. This was the second major work ALCO had done for us, and I would use them again.
David Woodman
Choosing Alco to work on a recent refurbishment was one of the best decisions we made for quite some time. Although I’m a keen DIYer I knew that knocking new doorways in load-bearing walls needed professional expertise. Alco certainly have that & the other work, a new partition wall & replacement coving to match the original Victorian coving was excellent. The men were highly professional & a pleasure to work with. We have other refurbishment projects in the pipeline & wouldn’t dream of using any other builders.
Ben Knight
We undertook a very extensive, root-and-branch development of house in 2017 for which Tom and his team took on and managed from beginning to end. In around 14 weeks they completely stripped back and rebuilt our home from top to bottom including completely replacing all plumbing and wiring, knocking through structural wall (involving the lagest RSJ i've ever seen), tanking one area of the house, a new dormer, removing and replacing the staircase in a new configuration, building a garage, re-configuring every floor, up to all the decorative work. Across this time we had almost no friction at all with Tom or his team (which is amazing given the scope and significance of this project to us) and Tom was a thoughtful guide who not only delivered the work excellently but also pro-actively encouraged us to consider elements to optimise the build to the point that, 4 years later, we wouldn't change a thing about the way we did it. Tom and the Alco team have many great qualities but the 2 that stand out most to us is the energy with which they attacked the build - we often had 7 or 8 different trades on site working to complete the work on schedule, and Tom's wonderful attention to detail which ensured the highest level of finish (on one occasions i found Tom himself changing the screws in a set of door hinges so they all matched - something i would never have even noticed). Alco are an extremely safe pair of hands for any project - I can't recommend them highly enough

Tom and his team are professional and thorough, good service at a fair price. What you want and need from people working on your home
Lee Graffham
Couldn’t recommend ALCO more highly, helped me and my wife to extend and create our home in Witley sticking to our budget and to a high quality finish. Tom and his staff are hard workers, friendly and never once phased bye any issues or alterations to our build during or after completion. Have since recommended ALCO to friends and family after our good experience of working with them and will continue to do so in the future too, thank you Tom and all the staff at ALCO.
Rebecca Crosweller
ALCO did a fantastic and most professional job on our project from start to finish. It was a complex build with lots of unknowns owing to the age of the property, but the team were creative and proactive throughout. We really felt like we got to know everyone well, and that's because Tom and his team are so personable and take such pride in their work. Highly recommend!
Volodymyr Bochkor
Good company ! They always pay their supplies on time .
Charlotte Saunders
Tom Allen and his team carried out extensive exterior works along with some internal decoration to our property in 2018. He was a superb project manager and made the process as stress free as possible mainly due to him being an excellent communicator. Tom has a creative mind, and therefore was great at making design suggestions whilst being patient when we changed our minds occasionally! He has a calm and extremely professional manner and we would definitely like to use ALCO again should we carry out any future work. Highly recommended 👍🏻
