Some customers know from the start exactly what their building requirements will be; others would like some advice as to what would suit their property the best. Thatís where our many years experience will help, we can advise and provide real life case studies of different Extensions we have built and the problems we faced in each of them and how we were able to address those problems.†At MRS Construction we know that everyone has a different budget to work within and we are flexible enough to advise and make recommendations that fit within those budgets providing a standard finish, however some of our customers require luxury items such as granite worktops, high end range cookers, solid wooden flooring. And under-floor heating, to mention just a few, these luxury finishes can increase the overall building cost substantially, so once again we will advise on the cost for each and talk through the benefits to you the customer.
