The importance of sourcing a reputable builder can not be underestimated when planning any kind of home improvements. Your home is one of the biggest investments you will ever make so it would be unwise to let just anybody get their hands on it! Of cause we all like a bargain, but cutting corners and going for the cheapest solution is seldom a good idea as you may be compromising on quality.

We offer a first rate bespoke, concept to completion service for all large or small building projects including loft conversions, refurbishments, building consultancy, renovations, redesign, extensions, kitchens and new builds. We can project manage your work and offer a concept to completion service providing everything from submitting architectural drawings, to the final coat of paint and finishing touches. Our tradesmen and engineers have carried out many successful jobs in places like Great Dunmow, Bishop's Stortford, Chelmsford and around the general Essex area. A professionally finished project such as a loft conversion can give spectacular results, and not only contribute extra living space for the family, but add value to any property. We use exceptional attention to detail and always ensure that for instance the materials used for the conversion or extension created are a good match for the original.

When older properties are about to benefit from a refurbishment or renovation, it is crucial to ascertain whether there have been past issues with things like damp. At Premier Build we are dedicated to identifying any potential or existing problems like this and in fact offer a building consultancy service. We have built up quite a reputation for succeeding where others have failed in this respect, and are experts at discovering elusive causes of damp, leaks and water ingress. Once the relevant cause is found, we will begin to put it right. On many occasions customers have had 'specialists' trying to solve the damp, to no avail after paying out numerous times. We believe that in order to understand and remedy any building related problem, you need a qualified, experienced and practical builder's approach.

Premier Build Ltd, are registered with the National House Building Council, an organisation which aims to raise standards within the building industry. We undertake building insurance work of all types and have substantial contracts on behalf of Aviva, Direct Line, AIG and Axa.

Professional Restoration Work, Damage Repair, Additional Services

The team here at Premier Build Ltd, are constantly aiming to hone our skills, and add to the long list of services we offer. After all, the construction landscape is continually altering as new designs become popular. Recent additions include foundations, engineered flooring and parquet flooring, we can also provide high quality installation of fascias, soffits and guttering. The exterior appearance of a property is extremely important, and if attractive and well maintained, creates an imposing first impression. We have successfully completed professional applications of Cedral boarding and silicone rendering, both of which can completely transform a building.

As specialists in every kind of building related process, we are often required by insurance companies, to return a property to it's original state after damage by floods etc. This can be a challenging proposition as just the right kind of materials are needed. A recent project called for just this expertise, when an apartment block in Bishops Stortford suffered damage by a vehicle. The impact destroyed a portion of the outer corner brickwork, so we used exact matching bricks to rebuild the wall along with some internal work. This sort of remedial or restoration work features in much of what we do, and outstanding results are something we are committed to.

Great Dunmow and the Dunmow Flitch Trials

Great Dunmow and the Dunmow Flitch Trials

Amongst the locations we cover there exist some colourful and unique traditions, one of which occurs in the ancient market town of Great Dunmow. The town sits near the River Chelmer, in north west Essex not far from Bishop's Stortford, Chelmsford and Braintree. It boasts the oldest recorded competition in the world, namely 'The Dunmow Flitch' or 'The Dunmow Flitch Trials'. The trial was mentioned by Chaucer in the Canterbury Tales, and is said to have started in 1104. The four yearly competition consists of married couples, a mock court and a flitch [or side] of bacon. Each couple [who may hail from anywhere in the world] has to swear to and convince the court that neither have repented their union once in the last year and one day. Their stories are tested by the mock court, which consists of 6 maidens and 6 bachelors and if found to be true the lucky couple are awarded a flitch of bacon. [so not one for the vegetarians].

Winners were not officially recorded until 1445, and the trials lapsed in the early 1800's but were revived again in the mid 1800's, and have continued to delight residents and tourists alike ever since. Although it has to be said, winners are usually few and far between!

Waytemore Castle Mound, Bishop's Stortford & Chelmsford Cathedral, Essex

Waytemore Castle Mound, Bishop's Stortford & Chelmsford Cathedral, Essex

Waytemore Castle in the town of Bishop's Stortford in Hertfordshire, no longer exists but its past presence is indicated by a mound which once served as the base of the castle. The Motte [mound] and Bailey [courtyard] castle and mound are a bit of a mystery, as there is not much known about their beginnings. Some believe the mound was intended as a grave mound, while others think it was a moated and stockaded fortress. There has also been extensive debate about the name Waytemore Castle, and suggestions include 'place of ambush in a marsh', 'boggy place' and 'forest clearing'. Visitors are allowed to climb the mound on the popular Bishop's Stortford Carnival day held around the 20th June each year.

If your interested in beautiful buildings, you will find a fine example in Chelmsford Cathedral or St Mary the Virgin, which was first built 800 years ago, then rebuilt in the 15th and 16th centuries. The construction was rebuilt using flint, rubble brick and stone and has a tower and a spire with a ring of 13 bells. After a partial collapse, the nave was again rebuilt in the early part of the 19th century, and stunning stained glass windows appeared throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. An extensive refurbishment was carried out in 1983, and installations included a new honey coloured stone floor, seating and altar. This cathedral is the second smallest cathedral in the country and contains some wonderful stained glass windows, organs, and artworks, many by contemporary artists. Chelmsford Cathedral is well worth a visit.
