West Country Renovations started in 2004 and has expanded steadily every year. We currently employ 40 full-time tradesmen including masons, tilers, carpenters, roofers, lead workers, plasterers and decorators, on 4 to 6 projects at any one time.
Our success is down to our Polish builders’ exceptional skills and work ethic, combined with effective project management backed up by efficient Head Office staff. We have a wealth of knowledge and an extensive stable of reliable suppliers and specialist sub contractors, whom we know and trust to deliver the best quality and price.
We use an ‘Open Book – Cost Plus’ system which we have developed and tailored to our business and now employ as standard for all contracts. The system is very transparent, extremely detailed and most importantly is quick and easy to read.
We maintain that by buying the materials and finishes you want, as cheap as they can be bought, and by employing hard working skilled builders for less than other builders charge, it follows that you cannot get a good job done cheaper.
We charge out our ‘in house’ builders at £17.50 per hour for all trades. This is significantly lower than the industry average of £25-£35.
Thanks to our excellent credit references, reputation and long standing accounts with suppliers, we source all our materials and sub contractors at very competitive rates. We pass on 100% of the savings we achieve direct to our clients, along with a hard copy of every receipt and invoice.
Overheads and Profit margin
We charge an overheads and profit margin of 15%. This covers our directors time, head office staff and overheads, warranties, insurances and liability.
We can also arrange for your works to be estimated, or for a fixed price quote. Please call us to discuss further.
