Specialist jobs at Pristine
Many builders say that they can do any job that a home, or other property, requires but, in our experience, we have found that this is rarely the case. When it comes to jobs which require traditional skills, or more contemporary craft skills using new materials, many builders are simply not up to the job. Fortunately, at Pristine, we have a range of skills which can be applied in traditional, or newer, properties to give you exactly the kind of look that you want for your home. In this guide, we will tell you about the types of specialist jobs that Pristine can do for you.
When it comes to traditional properties, particularly those that have planning permission, you will need to make sure that the work has the correct planning permission. The beauty of working with Pristine is that, not only do we have experience of obtaining planning permission, but that our use of traditional crafts is designed to match the aesthetics of your current property. We use traditional crafts and techniques in our work which means that your new building work will be exactly in keeping with the historical legacy of your home. This not only keeps the local authority happy, in terms of meeting their requirements for planning permission but most importantly means that you will be very satisfied with the match between the traditional and the new work in your home.
Contemporary extensions and fixtures
Pristine are not only experts at traditional property work, but can also turn their hand to more contemporary properties with great success. In terms of non-traditional extensions to properties, as well as the standard loft extension, Pristine also offer very appealing basement extensions. These are becoming very popular, particularly for those properties which already have a loft, or another type, of extension. We can show you how their novel techniques, including good use of space and light, can open up new areas for living in your home.
Pristine are also adept at using the latest techniques to heat and power your home. If you require solar panels to be fitted to your roof, Pristine have all of the latest products and techniques in this area.
There are few things as more pleasing to the eye as a traditional wall outside of a property. Whether this is a wall using bricks and materials that match a particular era, or a traditional wet or dry stone wall, Pristine are able to meet your requirements in this important area of building. We go to great lengths to source the best, and most traditional, materials, for our walls. Our builders and finishers will work to make sure that the wall is of the highest professional standard to last for many years to come. We will be happy to talk to you about our work in this area and to provide you with examples of other walls we have constructed using traditional materials and crafts.
Many houses used to benefit from the look and functionality of lime plastering. Very few builders know how to properly replicate this technique which is good for the home in terms of airflow and structural benefits. At Pristine we are experts in the replication of lime, and other forms, of traditional plastering technique. We also use traditional techniques in our finishing, painting and decorating. With Pristine you can be sure that the finishing touches to our building work will delight and amaze.
Woodworking is a lost technique for many builders, who prefer to sub-contract this essential service. At Pristine things are very different. We have a team of specialist joiners and carpenters who can produce highly designed and specialised joinery and carpentry pieces to please the most exacting of architects.
At Pristine we make sure that all of our materials are sourced with regard to ethical and environmental considerations. With this in mind, we are still able to source traditional materials that will add aesthetic appeal to your building project. From traditional stone to hardwoods and crafted bricks, we can source the materials to your precise specifications. Our materials are also chosen with the weather, and their use, in mind.
