What started as a tiny business in Aberdeen (2015) has quickly become a business that can handle almost any residential construction project you might have in mind. Our portfolio includes a variety of projects, from various bathroom and kitchen remodels to large conversions and extensions. Since 2021, we’ve specialised more and more, at the moment undertaking almost exclusively bathroom and kitchen remodelling.
At the moment, we consider projects in Aberdeen, Dundee, and Edinburgh. Every single day we find new ways of improving our service and increasing the efficiency of our business. This translates into better technology, hiring the best tradesmen we can find, and constantly improving our workflow processes.
In 2022, we got to the point where we felt comfortable offering a 5 year warranty on all projects (projects after July 2022), both on workmanship and the products that we supply.
In most cases, no. Emails are considered written contracts in the UK, so we rely on that.
If you get a quote from us, you’ll notice that it’s going to be valid for a short period of time. This is because prices are quickly rising in the construction industry.
There are a few reasons for this.
- Inflation. Everything is getting more expensive, so we have to increase the wages for our team to keep up with the cost of living.
- The prices of materials rise by much more than inflation. Some things are already double the price of what they were a few years ago.
- The demand for construction work. After the lockdown, everybody appreciates the comfort of their homes more, so there’s a rise in demand for home improvement services.
- A shortage of construction workers. There’s a shortage of construction workers in the UK. This has been the case for many years, but this has been exacerbated by Brexit since there’s no longer an influx of workers coming to the UK, since it’s basically impossible to get a visa for construction work.
We try to be as efficient as possible and, where possible, reduce costs. But there are a lot of events that are out of control, so higher prices are sometimes necessary to cover the extra costs.

One important aspect of home improvements and house values is that they tend to follow inflation. Especially during times of high inflation, property is one of the few assets that offer some protection against inflation. A project might cost £10 000 now, but with high inflation, it’s almost certain that the same project would cost double in just a few years time. So it’s a much better use of money, rather than keeping it in a bank account and losing it to inflation.
