With our experience of over twenty five years within home improvements, SDP is the perfect choice to help you make your dream home a reality.
Several reasons exist for people to remodel the inside of their house. Some intend freshening up the property as an aid to selling it on. For others, renovation is to improve an already cherished home. In some cases, owners feel a desire to radically change the style or feel of where they live.
One of the advantages of a renovation is that all of the above aims can often be achieved relatively cheaply, quickly and easily. A good example is the common practice of removing an existing wall in between a kitchen and dining room in order to create an open plan area. This can be accomplished within just days and yet utterly transform a home and how it feels living there.
The same is true for changing individual features such as stairs, flooring, windows and interior doors. One particularly popular desire is the restoration of original or period features removed by previous owners, which requires skilled workmanship and access to select materials.
SDP has performed countless renovations in Sheffield. We are happy to work on renovations projects from simple wall and chimney breast removals to enhance the sense of space through to a complete interior renovation and alterations works.
We are acutely aware that detail is important in achieving the best results; that the little things such as helping clients source hard to find, period doorknobs can be a huge factor in ensuring a successful and satisfying renovation. Another good example is aiding the careful selection of lighting solutions appropriate to the new decor and best suited to inspire the right mood. We can also advise you as to whether the planned renovations of a property is an opportune time to fit in additional works, such as updating electrical systems or on the best configuration and size of doorways to improve a sense of flow within the property.
"Thank you very much for all at SDP Ltd who have recently refitted our kitchen and carried out building works to make our kitchen and dining room open plan. The work was carried out to a really high standard and all of the workmen who attended our house were friendly and professional and left the house tidy once they had finished each day. The work they have carried out is fantastic and we are really glad that we instructed SDP to carry out the works which were all organised for us from start to finish. Thanks James. Lindsay"
"We found Sheffield Properties Development efficient, effective and value for money. James kept us informed of who was coming and when. He also solved any problems that occurred there and then. We didn’t have to wait long for answers or solutions. His teams did a good job and were reliable, personable and hard working. Our new extension is a delight and it’s almost impossible to tell that it is new brickwork from the front of the bungalow. We are planning to do our kitchen next year and will be using this firm again. Regards Christine"
"The company has recently fitted me a new kitchen, the quality of service and workmanship has far exceeded my expectations, I had prepared myself for a chaotic 11 days !! In fact the whole job was a stress free experience, workmen came and went, only bothering me if really important . They kept mess to an absolute minimum, clearing up at the end of each day, they were also polite and courteous .All in all I can t recommend sheffield development properties highly enough. Good job lads! Kind Regards, Susie Coish"
"I bought my house a few months ago and needed some work doing. I have never heard about SDP and when I did meet them they gave my a very professional service. James listened to me and was very passionate about the project as just as me. I am delighted with the work that he has done already and look forward for him to work for me in the future. Thanks James. Christine"
"Having decided to finally go ahead with an extension and major redevelopment to our property, we engaged SDP to undertake the work on the basis of recommendation from other people and we are totally happy with the finished product. The work, a full-width single storey extension with, the existing floor-plan being changed from a separate kitchen/dining room into 1 large open-plan living space, was managed by James brilliantly, with every detail of the plans/schedule being made available to us before the work started. James attended almost every day, keeping us informed of expected progress. The team(s) James employs are professional and helpful. A pleasure having SDP do the work and would happily recommend."
We love our new kitchen extension. It is exactly what we wanted. SDP listened to exactly what we were after and did a fantastic job. Everyone who worked on it was very friendly and polite and worked to high standards. I would definitely recommend them.
"We contacted SDP to do a house inspection for us prior to buying our first house. James was very helpful in taking us through the potential works identified in our Home Buyers report and associated costs and risks. Once the house purchase was complete we took up SDP’s offer to undertake some works to the timber in our cellar. The work was completed in a professional manner and to a high standard and SDP could not be beaten on price by the other companies that we considered. Overall we were very pleased and will definitely consider SDP for future works. Kind Regards, Andy & Liz."
"James did some major work for me and exceeded my expectation. They where limited disruption and his workers where fantastic. Thank you SDP for building my dream room! Christine Daley"
"We contacted James after a recommendation from someone who had used SDP previously. We were looking to replace our kitchen and create some extra space via the removal of some adjoining walls. James and Steve were extremely helpful in terms of proposing different options, whilst always looking to meet our requirements. The final layout has meant much more than just a new kitchen. We feel like the rear of the house has been completely revamped, giving us a more airy, spacious, functional and modern kitchen / dining / entertaining space. Having also added some additional work to our roofed conservatory (underfloor heating, bi-fold doors and seamless flooring), like many of the other testimonials on this site, we too are receiving lots of ‘wows’ from visitors. A small extension to the front doorway was also carried out by SDP – this was also done to a high standard and has left us with a far more practical space. We would certainly recommend James and his team – who were all extremely helpful and friendly. As our children grow up and we seek some additional refuge, I’m sure we will be back in touch re a loft conversion !!"
"Our long awaited extension is so impressive and looks amazing. Everyone who comes to the house and sees it, always gives the same reaction – Wow! James and his team were incredibly helpful throughout the whole process. At one point we wanted to amend a section of the build, James worked with us to make sure we got the result we wanted and the finished result was definitely worth it. The extended area has given us much more space and light and creates a wonderful relaxing environment which is perfect for a family with teenagers. We would highly recommend James for any building project , his approach is professional and he looks after his customers well, we will always return to his company for anything we may need in the future."
"Dear James, Just wanted to say thank you for the work undertaken on our property , the work was done well and to schedule. The workmen were helpful and cleared the work area on completion, be assured we will contact you in the future to quote for other work. Many thanks John Ramsden"
"I selected SDP to undertake a redevelopment and extension of the rear of the ground floor of my 100 year old semi because James approached the project in a very professional manner, explaining that he supplied a price, not an estimate, he gave a timescale and guaranteed daily visits to my house to project manage the work. There were inevitable little hiccups but nothing that James and I could not discuss and sort out. It was most helpful that James was always on hand so that queries could swiftly be dealt with. Together we could talk through tweaks to the plans. James employs a team of very polite, considerate and caring workers who always treated the house as my home, not as a ‘building site’. As well as this team James also hires in skilled artisans which has resulted in a completed open-plan family room/kitchen/dining room along with a loo and utility room that exceeds my original hopes and plans. I can highly recommend James and his team to anyone considering renovation work, large or small."
"Hi James, Many thanks for these fantastic photos. They do indeed look brilliant. It really does put my amateur efforts in to place but on the other hand they show our home in the most wonderful way. Let us also take this opportunity to thank you and your team. We are absolutely delighted with what you and your guys have done. You have helped us realise our vision for our dream house. From the outset we were confident that you would be able to deliver what we wanted, on schedule and within budget. The format of payments was excellent. We really appreciated your “can do” attitude and the way we were able to add items into the schedule as we realised that we needed to do more to our house to make it into our home. The finished quality of what you have done is wonderful. Your guys have been a pleasure to work with and we thank you for the care that they took working in our home. Also, watching your guys tackling some of the more ‘difficult’ tasks was truly exciting. Working through the development of the project, day by day with you on site, has been a pleasure , your attention and sense of humour have ensured that it has been a really great build. We have really enjoyed our time with you and your guys and want to thank you all so much for building our dream. We are so pleased and delighted that everyone who walks in goes WOW! Best regards, Jim & Adrienne"
"We’ve used SDP twice now, and both times we’ve been delighted with the results. The staff are friendly, polite, and most importantly, they deliver an excellent standard of work. We HIGHLY recommend them. Joe and Kayti Ball"
"Renovating a property can be a real minefield at the best of times, fortunately James at SDP was available to make the process as smooth as possible which was critical for me as I was living very remotely from the project. He had all the guys to do the right job in a timely manner and with the minimal of fuss. The finish was very professional and my property was sold above the asking price within a few days of going on the market. I would certainly use him again."
"As new house owners, we had no experience of having work done on property. James and his team made the entire process simple and easy, working with extreme professionalism, to schedule and on budget. Even our requests for custom wardrobes and awkward tiling didn’t phase them! We are overjoyed with the results, and will seek out SDP next time we need work done. Thanks again, and send out regards especially to Gundas! Lizzy and Ian"
We had a fantastic experience with SDP. James and his team knocked through our lounge and kitchen last year, this involved obtaining structural engineer's calculations, knocking through the brickwork, putting in steel support then arranging building regulation sign off. This was finished by 'making good' including plumbing a new radiator, re tiling the floor and re plastering. The work was carried out to the highest standard and from start to finish the process was smooth. What really impressed me was how specific James and his team were with the timeline of events and when they would occur so we could adequately plan ahead and his team are really friendly. We are already planning on using SDP again when we extend our kitchen later this year. I cannot recommend them highly enough!
"James, We would just like to say thanks to you and your team for completing the alterations on time and to budget . You kept us informed throughout , the work was to a high standard and the various tradesmen turned up when you said they would. We were very appreciative of the fact that your tidied up after themselves and kept the disruption down to a minimum. Once again, many thanks Michael &Sandra Totley , Sheffield"
"I needed some basement work completed as it was determined that after a surveyor had looked at it, there would need to be a full rebuild of the wall. The guys who came round were friendly, hard working and did an excellent job. They tidied the place up nicely after the work had been completed. Extremely happy with the cost for doing it and would not hesitate to ask for future work to be completed by Sheffield Development Properties."
SDP recently completed our loft conversion, from start to finish they were superb! James and the team were incredibly open minded and friendly, they listened to all of our requirements. They kept us up to date with all progress and any amendments / changes which were required they offered options along with the pro / cons to each choice. Each day we were made aware of what they were doing and progress which had been made. They ensured the site was tidy and clean after each visit, which was important as we had to live in the house during the conversion. The finish was amazing and we would highly recommend them to anyone doing any building work. Absolute pleasure and we will always look to use them in the future.
At SDP we start by arranging an informal meeting with you, to ensure that there is, from the word go, an implicit understanding on our part, of your exact wishes and what it is you want to achieve. This filters down through the entire company and ensures that each and every member of our highly experienced team is aware of your exact specifications
We then arrange for you to meet with one of our architects, so that your vision can be discussed in terms of feasibility, and any likely limitations that may need to be overcome.
With everything approved, we are ready to commence work on your extension.
