Ray & Sarah Hiscock – Kitchen Refurb & Structural Alterations Prestwich
Ray and Sarah contacted us regarding their kitchen in a mid terraced property in Prestwich. It became apparent on visiting them that they were struggling to get all they needed within the available space within the existing kitchen. They had already done a lot of thinking over the problem and had come to the conclusion that they needed to create more space in the kitchen area by opening up the cupboard space under the stairs. This basically involved supporting the upper floors by way of acrows (the wall is supporting) and installing a steel. Immediately after removing a portion of this wall it became clear the kitchen area would have much more usable space. It was decided the tall free standing fridge freezer would go in the created space because this would be the most aesthetically agreeable area with it being a large appliance. A 3D CAD image was produced prior to work commencing which was agreed upon and the finished job was pretty much 100% to the 3D produced. All appliances were supplied by us and we provided a new ring main to the kitchen, gas supply, plastering and new flooring.
NMB supplied all appliances for the kitchen apart fom the freestanding fridge freezer which Ray & Sarah bought. Appliances supplied were Oven, Hob, Extractor, Integrated dishwasher, sink and tap

We had a number of people round to quote for a new kitchen which also involved some building work to make a bigger space in the kitchen. North Manchester Builders were not the cheapest quote we had but we were more confident that the quality of work would be much better than anyone else we saw, and we weren’t wrong. From planning to build the guys at North Manchester Builders were really prompt and always on time. There were no half days here, the guys were there from early morning to late evening and everyone we met who did the various jobs such as electrics and plastering were top quality tradesmen.
There were issues in the kitchen once plaster and walls had been worked on – as there always will be – but north manchester builders always let us know what was going on and worked out great solutions to solve issues.
We now have a beautiful kitchen that we always dreamed of and will hopefully be able to call on north manchester builders in the future for more work around the house.
