Home improvements are valuable assets that can make your house feel more like home. From minor renovations to significant constructions, these improvements will not only add value to your property. The additional space will allow you to create a sanctuary within your own home where you can unwind and relax after a days’ hard work.
At Chartwell Construction, we offer professional carpentry services all over Perth. From timber-framing a new build and creating a deck for an alfresco to urgent roof repair and minor home fixes, we have mastered the trade, and we have expert tradesmen available to complete a project.
Timber framing is one of the most popular building methods throughout history for it is easy to work with and quick to assemble. It forms the basic structure of the house or the building and ‘frames’ or encompasses the space within the areas. Timber panels are arranged to create the base of the roof and the walls. They are then fastened or joined together by a nail gun to keep its shape and allow for the rest of the foundation to go in. Studs or vertical wooden members are then added within the walls, while joists or horizontal wooden beams support the floors, and the rafters or the sloping wooden beams support the roof. Also, Timber Framing is not just a construction method, but it is also a decorative point. Designers and builders choose to leave exposed beams to give off a rustic feel or a farmhouse-vibe and add character to a property.
Decking & Alfresco
Decking and Alfresco add value to a property because any additional space – especially one which can be used for recreational activities or for entertainment purposes is highly welcomed. Alfresco in design and construction follows Al Fresco in Italian which means to ‘dine in cool air’. It serves to provide additional shelter as an outdoor living space, especially during the summer where you can enjoy the breeze of the air yet still be in the shade. For decking and alfresco in the garden or the backyard, the additional space can be used for outdoor cooking and barbecues. Alfresco that serve as balconies, terraces or verandas can be used as relaxation spaces or even as a herb garden or a small greenhouse.
A leaky roof will require urgent repair to limit damage to other areas of the house. Roof carpentry may also be necessary when there are cracks on the inner and outer layers of the roof – which if left ignored, can cause more damage and lead to the collapse of the whole roof. Roof vents that are not working properly, as well as damaged pathways caused by clogged gutters and shafts, are also cause for urgent attention. Where there is no proper insulation or when ventilation is not working well, it’s best to have your walls and your roof checked by Chartwell Construction.
At Chartwell Construction, we offer professional building and construction, renovation and carpentry services for residential and commercial properties in Perth. We do timber framing, especially for home extensions and second-storey additions. We use the panels to line the design and give our clients the first view of what the construction would look like. If you are considering a new garage or extending the roof on an alfresco setting in an upper level of a multi-storey property, talk to Chartwell Construction for expert advice. We install decking and alfresco construction for properties with a backyard making good use of available space, and we reconstruct multi-level houses to create an alfresco area or a terrace, a balcony or a veranda. Our roof repair services include damaged tiles, leaky holes, broken shafts and clogged gutters. In addition, we also do second-fix carpentry like creating new openings for doors and windows, as well as skirting boards and architraves for visual aesthetics.
