How we work

​How we work

At Abode Home Services, we have time served carpenters, plumbers, plasterers, insulation specialists and trade partners – such as locksmiths and soft furnishing makers, available to make your project go perfectly. With over 20 years experience, we have refined our working process to perfection. Every project is unique in terms of scope, trades and budget, but a typical project will go like this…

1. Site meeting

Following a phone conversation or enquiry email, a skilled tradesperson from Abode Home Services will arrange to come and meet you to discuss your project in more detail. We’ll listen carefully and advise on the best way we can fulfil your building needs, taking notes and making sketches to ensure that your requirements are clearly understood. We will take into account your budget, design ideas and any material specifications required.

2. Quotation

Abode Build will then provided you with a written quote outlining the costs and any options available, with an approximate project timeframe. Once the quote is approved, we can confirm a starting date.

3. Advance payments

We will agree and take any advance payment required, before we start work. Typically these will be for building materials or procurement costs that may have to be incurred before work begins.

3. Commencing work

Working with our team, we will aim to ensure that this is as frustration-free and inconvenience-free as possible. Keeping you up-to-date with developments and providing a work environment that is respectful and friendly.
For extensions or conversions, plans will be drawn up and submitted for approval by the local authority before we start any work on site.

4. Finishing up

Once all the major work has been completed, we will start a round of snagging, to finish anything that isn’t 100% right. We involve the client in this as much as we can to ensure once Abode Home Services leave, the client is completely happy with the work.
