3 international trades people who can transform your property

Written by Posted On Thursday, 29 August 2019 02:27

Property improvement isn’t an exact science.

But it’s still a discipline you’ll have to get to grips with when you want your domestic or commercial property to be as comfortable as possible for those who use it and also increase its resale value.

If you’re an old hand in the realty sector and have a keen eye for aesthetic beauty, the chances are you’ll be fairly adept at making many of the changes you deem necessary for a thorough refurbishment.

But there are other projects best left to trained professionals who have the practical skills and experience to make your creative vision a practical reality.

With that in mind, here are three international tradespeople who transform your property.

  1. 1.Dry Stone Dyker

The Scottish word for a wall is ‘dyke’ and dry stone dykers like Neil Moffat uphold an age-old tradition by plying their trade with beautiful walls constructed with no cement whatsoever.

Years of experience mean that a skilled dyker knows exactly which stones to select so that they fit together so firmly that they withstand the extremes of Scottish weather and often remain standing for centuries.

For something a little different, a dry stone dyke would look delightful as an alternative property perimeter.

But the same stone dyke technique can also be applied to creating unique seats and benches that add another dimension to gardens.

  1. 2.Cabinet Maker

While carpenters might take charge of essential woodwork in your home like roof beams, flooring and window frames, firms like CabinetMaker NYC can create one-off customised tables, chairs and desks that perfectly match your personal taste and home interior.

This Brooklyn-based business produces made to measure, high grade furniture that’s hand made by time-served craftsmen.

The only trouble is that the products are so splendid, you’ll want to take them with you when you move, rather than using them to entice potential buyers. Still, there are worse predicaments to work your way out of.

  1. 3. Electrical contractor

Electrical projects are something you certainly shouldn’t tackle unless you’re fully qualified and experienced.

Which is why an electrical contractor like C J Connally can turn their hands to a range of disciplines, including internal and external lighting systems, data cabling, CCTV, earthing and bonding and emergency power supplies.

If you’re a landlord who’s responsible for the maintenance of a large residential or business property, this is the type of trade company you should definitely keep on speed dial – and it might even be worth keeping them on a retainer.

When you’re in the realty business, these three tradespeople can ensure your property is in tip-top condition all the time, which always makes good business sense – find the equivalent firms in your town for total peace of mind.
