Alderley Edge builders are hard to find. This is because demand exceeds supply. South Manchester locations contain many affluent homes. Therefore residents in Alderley Edge often want to stay. But they can afford to extend. So local Alderley Edge builders are usually busy. Especially good ones.
We still searched Alderley Edge builders. But this project is too small for most. So I decide to project-manage it. This means the following :- Design and drawings.Technical specification. Recruiting tradesmen. Organising tradesmen. Obtaining materials on time. Setting up site. Supervising the work. Managing costs.
My client wants more glass compared to less framework.
Look at this old lead-work! It overlaps the glass which causes shade. It traps moisture. Therefore risking rot. It could be neater!
Exitex Glazing System
Instead of lead I specify Exitex. It costs less than lead. It’s a system of aluminium and neoprene. The aluminium is factory-painted in any colour you like. The same painting process as your car. Neoprene is used for any water-resistant need. For example wet suits for deep sea divers. Exitex is installed by the following method:- Lay neoprene cushion onto rafter. Then add new glass. Next clamp in the glass. Finally clip on the aluminium covers. Exitex makes many accessories too. We bought it from Westward Building Services.
The Team : Alderley Edge builders in action!
The work is being done by my colleagues. Excellent tradesmen. They are John Shuker (07899 780906), Stuart Rollinson (07951 350092) and Chris Firth (07988 509951). Gary Henfrey supplied the tented scaffold. So bad weather does not stop work. And my client’s home stays dry. Brian Sheldon supplies the timber framing. John’s speciality is joinery. Stuart is an excellent brick layer and plumber. Chris is an artist in lead. (Or so he says!). We have all worked together before. Clients say we make an effective team! This client said…
