Flood damaged bungalow restoration

After flood damage, a 1930’s bungalow needed to be totally gutted and refurbished, including new kitchen, bathroom, electrics and decoration.

What We Did

  • Removed ceilings and plaster from walls

  • Plastered throughout + full electrical re-wire

  • Redecorated & installed new flooring

  • New heating system & pumping upgrade


Project Brief

Owners of a 1930’s bungalow contacted the experienced builders at Marisco South to fully refurbish their property following extensive flood damage.

After pumping out all the water and a very long drying out process, the Marisco team got to work removing all the ceilings from the property and taking internal walls back to brick. The property needed a completely new electrical and heating system, so we re-wired the entire home, installed new heating and upgraded their plumbing to ensure it was brought up to date with current legislation.

Once this was complete, the team installed a brand-new modern bathroom and kitchen to replace the flood damaged ones. We also installed new laminate flooring throughout the property and redecorated each room in attractive neutral colours as per the client’s brief. Using our specialist knowledge and skill, we were able to save all of the original 1930’s internal door handles to keep the character of the past alive in the bungalow while in keeping with the beautiful modern family home we had created.

To complete the project, we replaced the original aluminium and badly damaged windows with new uPVC ones to both the front and rear of the property as well as installing new patio doors which are FENSA registered.

Our client was delighted with the final result of the refurbishment that eradicated all traces of the flood damage and left the owners with a gorgeous and functional family home that has all the mod-cons they could need. They were particularly impressed with the new kitchen, bathroom and windows that gave the property an instant facelift as well as the original 1930’s door handles that provide a subtle nod to the past.
