anniversaryMarnick Builders reached its 25th anniversary on Tuesday, Celebrating a quarter century of working with the local community and providing high quality building services.

The Business was formed on the 1st of march 1991 amid the recession of the 1990s with just two employees, Mark Smith and Nick Chinn forming the name ‘Marnick’. Over the next few years they took on many small scale building projects ranging from loft conversions to extensions, with their extensive knowledge of the building industry they soon progressed onto larger scale jobs. The turning point came in the form of ‘Stack House’ a prominent seafront property that allowed Marnick to stamp its mark of quality on larger projects.

25 years on and Marnick builders still take the same care and attention from job to job, taking pride in employing highly skilled tradesmen who have been at the core of Marnick’s success over the past 25 years. With current projects on-going all over the county the company continues to grow, taking on more challenging projects with new cutting edge materials and design.

Mark and Nick would like to thank all the past and present employees that have helped them reach this milestone and are looking forward to continuing for many years to come.

Waterside House, Malpas

The team have recently completed an extensive refurbishment and renovation of a waterside house in Malpas.

The client initially contacted us for small works required in the kitchen area. After consulting us on some larger alterations the project snowballed into a full overhaul of the property.

This included the elevation and structural support of the existing parking area, a second storey extension to encompass the new master bedroom with waterfront balcony, a new cantilevered 180 degree view lounge space with views over the water and finally the renovation of the boatshed to a small usable annexe.

 

Alongside these major alterations the team followed the client’s brief, finishing the property to an exceptional standard, with high class bathrooms and fittings throughout.

As mentioned above, one of the more extensive alterations was the addition of the new cantilevered lounge room. This required the excavation and structural rebuild of the existing garden rockery to mask the steel support which enables the room to stand out and over the steep waterside garden.

With a very experienced workforce we were able to combine new and old techniques to achieve a great result and the property has been enhanced considerably from its original form.

If you would like us to provided an estimate for a project that you have in mind then please do not hesitate to get in contact, our initial consultation and estimate is free.

 

 

Tanking provides peace of mind against damp

For a majority of homeowners in Cornwall the effects of damp on the ground floor and basement levels of the home can be considerable. Many homes require some degree of tanking or damp proof membrane to protect the home from water related damage. At Marnick builders we have used Newton tanking systems to great effect on a number of properties and there is a Newton system to suit any property, from render based damp proof systems to plastic tanking and sump pumps.

We have the experience to be able to advise you on the best possible solution for your home, taking into account all aspects of planning and surveying to ensure that encroaching damp is a thing of the past, allowing you to enjoy your home to its full potential.

Click through the gallery below to see an example of a rigid plastic tanking system in Falmouth. This system drains into a sump pump and is covered with stud walling over the top of the membrane  leaving a stable base for whatever surface finish the room requires.

If you would like to discuss damp proofing or tanking for your property please Contact Us. We Provide free estimates for all our work.

 

 

 

Marnick Builders use specialist systems to improve the thermal performance of an ageing property in Falmouth

The three storey semi-detached Victorian house was constructed around 100 years ago with solid granite walls, and although structurally strong the thermal performance of granite is very poor by modern standards, the owners were looking to fully refurbish the property and address the energy efficiency issues.

Marnick builders used there experience in property renovation to suggest a full plan of work, recommending Bostik’s Climatherm External Wall Insulation (EWI) system as the best material to improve the thermal efficiency of the home, yet retain the period features and appeal of the house.

Operations Director Nick Chinn explains:

“We needed an EWI system that offered the right thermal performance and a very high level of durability as the property is located on the coast and exposed to some quite extreme weather conditions. The Bostik Climatherm system with EPS insulation and white silicone render finish proved ideal. We were very impressed with both the performance of the system itself and the support offered by Bostik.”

“An extension was added to the property as part of the project which did not require insulating but needed to match the external appearance of the rest of the house. As a Bostik Climatherm approved contractor we were able to source additional render through the local branch of Travis Perkins and make sure the extension perfectly matched the rest of the property.”

The property now achieves a U-value in accordance with building regulations for work of this kind while retaining its period look and feel, fully meeting the requirements of the homeowner.
