I would be happy to recommend this company. I have used classic restorations for all sorts of jobs large and small over the years and have never been disappointed. From replacing a kitchen to putting up shelf, high standards and cleanliness are order of to day to them, highly recommended without hesitation.

Bespoke fitted shelving in walk-in wardrobe.
A compact walk-in wardrobe was made very smart and efficient by Steve. After insulating the walls, the mdf storage units were made to measure in his workshop, edged with hardwood and coated in polyurethane. They look really smart and professional! Price was very reasonable indeed. Highly recommended.

Replaced roof tiles, removed moss from roof, fixed guttering.
Steve and Andy did a great job of bringing the roof of our 250 year old cottage up to scratch. They removed years of moss (4 bin liners full!) and replaced 40 broken tiles, sourcing them locally to match the originals. They also cleared and repaired the guttering while doing the job. The price was very fair and the work done in 2 days. Excellent!

Oak gate made to measure and fitted.
Classic Restorations have a workshop and they replaced a rotten old softwood gate for me. I opted for a solid Oak gate with new fittings. It is beautifully made and extremely solid, will last for decades. Makes the property look very smart too. Price less than I thought and very reasonable.

Excellent renovation of one bedroom flat.
Steve and Andy from Classic Restorations completely renovated a detached one bedroom flat for me after the previous tenant had left and the property was run down and very tired. I am delighted with the result, especially at the competitive price! The bathroom was terrible and they stripped it out, re-plastered, replaced the roof and tiled. After moving the toilet to a new location they were able to cleverly put in a full size bath with shower over, turning it into a lovely bathroom instead of the nasty shower room it had been! Steve devised a new hot water system and mounted it in the loft, so the property now has running hot water powerful enough for a decent shower too! It used to have individual water heaters. The kitchen was also replaced completely with budget (but very presentable) gloss white cabinets and dark worktops. Appliances including washing machine, dishwasher, cooker and fridge were also fitted. New flooring was fitted in bathroom and kitchen. Finally the whole flat was decorated professionally and the carpets cleaned. I have loads of interested tenants within a week of advertising and will have the property rented out in a few days subject to references. I thoroughly recommend Steve and Classic Restorations. They have now completed several projects for me both large and small, and I would not use anyone else frankly. They are professional, fair and trustworthy.

Replaced summer house roof.
Steve and Andy replaced the roof of our summer house that had become very rotten and leaky. They used high grade ply and several layers of professional roofing material. They even put some guttering in place to prevent further damage and did not charge any extra for this. A really solid job at a reasonable price that should last for years and give the summer house a new lease of life. Thanks!

Redecorate 3 bedroom bungalow.
Steve from Classic Restorations has now done several jobs for me and this is the latest. I needed my mothers large 3 bedroom bungalow completely refurbished in preparation for rental. Classic Restorations had already done a very good job replacing the kitchen and bathroom. Steve and his team prepared and painted the house to a very high standard. They also did a considerable amount of 'snagging' as the property had been a little neglected and this was included in the price agreed. There were no surprises! The new tenants were delighted at the property and described it as being given a 'new house'. Steve does a great job at a fair price and is always helpful and completely trustworthy. Highly recommended.

Kitchen refurbishment.
Steve refurbished the kitchen in a 3 bedroom bungalow to enable me to rent it out. Initially we thought we could reuse the base units, but because I wanted to add spaces for more appliances. It became apparent that it would be more cost effective to replace the units completely. Steve put in a complete new kitchen, worktop, wall cupboards and sink very quickly and efficiently. He even managed to find some flooring that matched the existing, in order to cover up the gaps where base units had previously been situated. To keep costs down Steve used standard white tiles, but in a brick pattern that made them look far more expensive than they were. A solid job at the right price.
