Domestic & Residential Work

Harland Building Services has been carrying out Domestic and Residential work in South East London and Kent for nearly two decades. As a result, we have learned how to deliver an unmatchable service each and every time. We cover all aspects of construction, as well as maintenance, and are able to do so in a way that meets the clients’ budget and needs. Below are just a few examples of the building works we provide:

Extensions & Basements

When extending your home with an extension to create a new space in your basement or home, Harland Building Services knows how to help you every step of the way. When we take on your project, we take on all the stress involved so you don’t have to. We talk to the council for you, arrange papers for planning permission and offer design services too.

Basement extensions have soared in popularity in recent years, thanks to the fact that they don’t eat up any external space and instead have the ability to add space and value to homes in urban areas. Basement extensions can be used to free up space in other parts of the house, or can be self-contained with their very own access.

Whatever it is you want, be it a small kitchen extension or a sound-proofed basement, Harland Building Service can help make it happen.

New Builds

Building a bespoke home or property from scratch is demanding work, which is why Harland Building Services only employs dedicated, skilled tradesmen who pay a huge amount of attention to detail. We offer meticulous planning and consultations, working alongside clients, designers and any other third parties involved. We build good working relationships on every job and are able to ensure your ideas and requirements are clearly defined and at the end, expectations are met, if not exceeded.

Complete Refurbishments

Our knowledge of renovations and refurbishments is unrivalled, meaning our services cover a vast range of projects – from the redecoration of one single room to the total refurbishment of a property, be it commercial or residential. To find out more, please feel free to contact us for a no obligation discussion on your future projects.

Loft Conversions

Why bother moving into a larger property when you can add a significant amount of space to your existing property with a simple loft conversion? We help add value to your London or Kent based home or commercial property, and make the process simple for you by planning, designing and building your loft – from start, to finish – all within your budget.

Structural Works

Harland Building Services have been providing designs and documentations for a broad spectrum of residential and commercial projects that require structural works since its inception. Therefore we have gathered first class knowledge and now have a vast amount of experience in carrying out structural works. Whatever it is you need – be it footings and foundations or framing and other structures, such as modular and cyclonic.

We offer kitchen designs and fittings, as well as floor tiling, heating and plumbing to complete the service. We understand that the kitchen is the heart of a home, and how integral it is that works are carried out quickly and efficiently so that clients can get back to their day-to-day routine. Thanks to our unmatched experience, we get the job done to an agreed timescale and budget each and every time, without going over budget or hiding any costs.
