The Many Types of Construction Contractor

Yo! Welcome to this new blog. Last year, I decided to fix up my home. I had lived in this place for the past 20 years and since I moved in, I haven't really done a thing to it. I decided to do something about it when I arrived home one day and saw how terrible my house looked compared to my neighbour's places. I called in a range of different contractors to replace the roof, repair the walls and paint the interior. I was really pleased with the results and I picked up a lot useful tips which I would like to share with you.

If you are a new contractor who is reluctant to use tilt-up panels, this post highlights some of the significant advantages of the building system. Read More 

Ensuring Your Splashbacks Enhance Your Kitchen Remodel

Irrespective of the care that you put in to keep your kitchen pristine, it is bound to start to exhibit signs of wear with time. The high humidity, wetness and high heat that characterises the kitchen's environment coupled with heavy daily use are bound to start affecting your building supplies leading to surface damage that can quickly make the space to look decrepit. However, if the various elements of the kitchen are still functional such as working cabinetry and operable appliances, then you do not have to invest much in a kitchen renovation. Read More 

What type of concrete repair do you need?

Concrete can be damaged in a variety of ways. Perhaps you have a concrete structure that has suffered damage from a heavy impact, or maybe your structure is leaching water or has experienced some other chemical exposure. If you are dealing with reinforced concrete then perhaps it is not the concrete itself that caused the problem but the corroding steel resulting within is causing cracking and spalling. Whatever the cause of your concrete problem you will need to arrange for concrete repair to take place before the situation deteriorates to a position where the concrete structure can no longer be saved.

When Should a Developer Use an Urban Planner?

An urban or town planner may be used by a developer or by a city council when a new and large development is being planned. The services of an urban planner may be needed even before drawings and schemes are created for that development, and they may also be needed during the construction phase. If you're a developer, note when and why you may want to hire an urban planner, and how their services can benefit you. Read More
