Residential Construction Works: Enlargements, Refurbishments, Modernisations

Here at Vanilla – Properties of Distinction, we pride ourselves on our ability to offer exceptional levels of service, professionalism and quality to all our clients, no matter what the project size.

Known for our involvement in major scale projects, we also cater for smaller or more minor construction, modernisation and refurbishment works and have created a department entirely dedicated to this work.

Many home-owners, when looking for a contractor to take on renovation, extension or modernisation works, feel they need to turn to a ‘one-man band’. Someone who they imagine can take sole control of the project, to save them from having to organise all the various trades and schedules. This is simply not the case, Vanilla – Properties of Distinction are the alternative solution. So often our team is called in by clients who have been let down, even abandoned, by their previous tradesmen – it happens more often than you think! We can step in and adapt to your project at any stage, regardless of size or requirement and provide exactly what you need to the precise standards you would expect. Let us take the strain; we can get involved in as much or as little of the project as you require:

  • You choose our level of involvement
  • We agree a budget
  • We assign a project manager
  • We communicate at every stage of the project
  • We complete our work
  • We guarantee the work we do
  • Your satisfaction is assured

Why choose Vanilla – Properties of Distinction?

We can offer a osmall-builds_pic3ne-stop service, with total commitment to carry out projects to the highest, exacting standards, meeting both your agreed budget and time-frame, regardless of the project size. With one point of contact and a sole source of supply of both materials and labour, you get peace of mind and value for money throughout the entirety of the assigned job. We will manage every aspect of the build, take away the hassle of project organisation and deal with any arising issues from managing the multiple trades that are needed, on time and on a day-to-day basis. All of this backed up with a centralised national support team.

Work with us from the outset of your planned project and gain the benefit of our experience throughout the planning stages too. We are very experienced in identifying specific planning requirements for individual properties, such as planning permissions, listed building consents and exceptions to the General Permitted Development Rights for your street or area. With so much jargon to consider, you can rely on us to help you develop your dreams from concept to completion.

“But can we afford a National Building company?”


Yes, you can. Building materials and labour are always the largest costs to any project. We keep these overheads to a minimum for our clients by purchasing centrally and in bulk for the multiple projects we are handling at any one time, wherever they are situated across the country. As such, we can strive and succeed to make your project as cost-effective as possible and we will regularly communicate with you on ideas we may have to save you money and maximise your budget. Many clients wish to pay by card; as a TrustWave approved trader, we take both debit and credit cards *
*Terms, conditions and surcharges apply.

Quality Assured

As well as building work, we undertake design, architecture, structural engineering, planning application assistance, material selection, build management, plus finishing and decoration.
