Experts at historic or listed building restoration & renovations

At Tetlow Developments in Manchester in the Northwest of England, we take a real pride in our conservation work on historic buildings and renovation projects. Whether rebuilding a three hundred year old fireplace, replacing worn-out interior oak panelling or even undertaking an entire renovation of a listed or historic building, our work is impeccable.

Renovating a house usually raises the question “where on earth do I begin?“. When confronted with a semi-derelict property needing extensive renovation, or perhaps a listed or historic building in need of conservation, one can often feel pretty overwhelmed.

That’s where we come in. We can show you, step by step, how to bring your vision to fruition – within the budget you can afford. We can help you come up with the most vital element of any restoration project – having a plan

The most important element of any house or home renovation – or indeed any larger project involving listed buildings or historic building conservation – is to have a clear plan. This plan not only helps you focus on your long-term goal, it also provides a clear timeline for each step of the project management process. After all, there is absolutely no point in concerning yourself with the poor plastering on a given wall, if the quality of the electrical wiring behind it is unknown.

The plan will also help to ensure that all costs are included so there are no unpleasant surprises half way through. We are always delighted to visit the property in question with you. We can then discuss your ambitions in great detail, following up with a comprehensive quotation that includes guaranteed and accurate costs for each step.

Most importantly, the plan we help you devise will ensure that your project will be completed to the agreed high standard, on time and on budget.

When it comes to renovating or conserving any historic or listed building, whether in the Manchester, Rochdale, Bury, Bolton, Stockport or Oldham areas , you may be a real enthusiast and want to do some of the work yourself. We understand that completely. After all, we this type of work too! So we’d certainly be able to advise on how you might contribute your skills and your passion in order to keep costs down. And this can often provide you with a real sense of shared achievement.

Of course, you may simply want someone to manage the entire project on your behalf. That’s just fine too. Either way, our expert craftsmen and site managers based in Manchester will provide you with total peace of mind, with a clear plan that ensures any improvements to the electrical wiring, plumbing supply, roof timbers, walls, floors and/or any historic artefacts or features, have all been carefully thought through and costed.

And each planned item of work will also adhere to all relevant planning and legal requirements…

When it comes to renovations, conservation or restoration, with any listed building there are usually quite detailed legal issues to address, and often quite demanding guidelines to follow.

In many cases, these detailed requirements can cause the property owner a real headache, unless they have expert advice on hand. Again, this is where Tetlow Developments can help. We have an extensive knowledge of both local and national planning laws, along with years of experience in managing both small and large-scale conservation and restoration projects for our many satisfied clients.

When I asked Tetlow Construction to build an extension on my house, they were brilliant from start to finish. The work was all done to a very high standard, and there was no mess during the work, nor any left behind afterwards. And the price was right too!

My tired looking wooden floor was restored by Tetlow Construction. Ross Tetlow worked hard and proficiently and though I had expected there to be lots of dust I was very pleasantly surprised to find every surface had been cleaned thoroughly. Tetlow Construction also replaced my integrated fridge and this necessitated installing new doors which were in keeping with my bespoke fitted kitchen. Ross Tetlow spent a lot of time researching different options for me and I am so delighted with the finished effect. I can recommend Tetlow Construction for reliability, professionalism, quality of work and value for money.

Tetlow Construction did a full rewire, new heating system, and plastering for our Victorian semi. The results were great, and Ross is flexible. I'd describe him as a "fair" man, so rest assured you won't get ripped off. Even after payment, Ross got the plasterers back in and has continued providing advice. A proper gent!

I recently employed Tetlow Developments to carry out repair at my property.

The project involved the uplifting of an existing patio which forms part of my garage roof to cure a problem of significant water leakage into the garage below.

This was a technically challenging project.

Ross researched a solution and identified a suitable specialist system to waterproof the roof structure and then rebuilt the patio above using natural stone pavings. The solution was a total success.

The project was carried out on time and on agreed budget. The work was carried out by Ross Tetlow assisted by his brother. Both worked diligently from start to completion of the project.

The standard of workmanship and finish were high and we are  very pleased with the final result. On the basis of their performance on the project I would recommend Tetlow Developments to others.
