builder wanted in enfield,

Postby v-technician » Mon Sep 10, 2007 7:57 am

Hi all could anyone recommend a competant and reasonably priced builder in the enfield area?

I want to knock a load bearing wall down between the kitchen and dining room. and brick up the two doors in the kitchen (one to go into kitchen and one to go into garden).

i was quoted £1700 by some random builder. this seems expensive to me, what do you guys think?

£1700 seems a reasonable price,your looking at 3 maybe 4 days work for two men.Not forgetting the hire of a skip,you'll need an r.s.j (girder) bricks,sand,cement,plasterboard,timber to make good the floor where the wall was removed,and the list goes on.
