Case studies

New extension

In order to create a new utility and kitchen area, our client decided to extend to the side and rear on this property.

Trenches were dug to the level specified on drawings or by the building inspector. These footings were then filled with concrete and a brick and block wall was created to include the damp course.

Wherever possible, a brick match is obtained to ensure that the extension brick used matches with that of the property. Brick and block wall were constructed to the specified height.

On goes the roof, again ensuring that all specifications on the drawings are adhered to. Windows and doors have been installed to suit the client's requirements and again to match the existing style as closely as possible.

Finally, a brick paved driveway was requested by the client and completes the job nicely.

Two storey extension

This impressive two storey extension was completed to provide a 1930's home with additional living space and larger bedroom with en-suite.

The trenches are dug in preparation for the footings.

Having laid a concrete footing, the brick and walls were created to include the damp proof membrane, once this is in place the floor was insulated and a concrete screed applied.

The construction of the walls can then be completed.

Lintels are placed in, as necessary and scaffolding erected to enable construction up to the second storey.

The extension begins to take shape as the roof goes on. As with all our workmanship, we have a keen attention to detail.

Beautifully neat tiles complete the roof!

AFTER: A stunning two storey extension to give extra space to this lovely family home.

Basement kitchen

Our clients made a grand choice by converting the access to their basement cellar and knocking down a wall to create a magnificent kitchen/diner area.

A new point of entry and two new windows were installed. Brick arches were created to be in keeping with the rest of the house.

Inside, the room was opened up and a new kitchen was installed.

The testimonial provided by this client reads as: "Harding Builders have completed several large projects in our home including the removal of structural walls and the addition of new external entryways. All work was carried out with professionalism and attention to detail. Whenever the project posed problems it was discussed with us and solutions suggested. Jason & Gavin were prompt every morning and stayed until the job for the day was done, sometimes until late into the evening!! Jason in particular has an eye for detail and his tiling work is second to none - I absolutely love the work he did behind the Aga in our new kitchen. Both Jason & Gavin were happy to liaise with the suppliers when required and made every effort to ensure that we were happy with the work they carried out."
Praise indeed!

Patio area and feature patio

Having erected a single story extension on this home, we were asked to complete the job by laying a new patio area. The slabs were chosen to reflect the colours in the house brick.

You can see from this photo that all aspects of the new extension are designed to be in keeping with the original house. Windows and doors match, as do bricks, tiles and guttering.

The patio was edged neatly with small round coping stones and a shingle drainage area surrounds the new extension, as requested.

This patio was laid to surround an existing conservatory. The slabs chosen work well with the house and the brick paved area around the edge ties the design in beautifully.

Our client provided this testimonial: "We are both extremely happy with the end result, which has complimented our conservatory and given a completely new look to our back garden. May I just add that we found Jason and Gavin's work to be absolutely first class. They were always happy to discuss the work involved and keep us in the picture at all times. We found them conscientious and reliable and the site was left clean and tidy at the end of the project. We have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone wishing to employ a truly professional builder"

Installation of deck and spa

With a keen eye for detail, Jason and Gavin installed a diagonal deck to compliment a stunning spa. Surrounding the decked area they created a warm red brick wall with flint inlay to reflect the style of the property.


Many of our clients are deciding to purchase their kitchen from a kitchen retailer and then arrange for us to fit the kitchen. This is usually beneficial for our clients as any preparation work can be completed by us before we install the kitchen is fitted, for example plastering. Once we have fitted the kitchen we can remain on site to take care of any additional matters such as floor tiling etc. Another great advantage of this is that we can handle the plumbing and electrical works, saving you time and most likely money and ensuring that the project runs as smoothly as possible.

We installed the kitchen and tiled the floor and walls. As in many cases, most clients like to add their own contribution to the build and will decorate the rooms themselves, however, we are happy to provide this service if requested.


With over 20 years experience, Jason and Gavin's brickwork is always neat, tidy and professionally laid. It may look easy but there is a definite art to this trade.


These before and after photos demonstrate the effect a simple suite can have in dramtically enhancing your home.

Internal works

As with all external works, we follow a specification as directed by the plans for the project. All newly constructed rooms were plastered to a very high standard and first and second fix electrical and plumbing works were completed as requested.

Our clients provided this testimonial regarding the completed works: "Jason and Gavin did a good job on the extension and went out of their way to be helpful. We appreciated both their advice in planning the extension and their flexibility to accommodate minor changes as it was completed. Many thanks."
