Service Update – 29 April 2021

We are fortunate to be in an industry that has been extremely busy over the last 12 months. We are very grateful for this and, in particular, to all the customers who have asked us to transform their garages. It has been very pleasing to read so many wonderful comments.

Looking forward it seems we are entering a challenging period for different reasons and this is being created by global shortages of raw materials and other key supplies. So far we have received notice of price rises for timber, floor tiles, cabinets and all our metal based accessories.

This is on top of shipping price increases and delays which are causing issues for the whole supply chain. But we have also been advised that some manufacturers are slowing down production and restricting supplies to  their key customers of which we are one.

So I anticipate we shall continue to remain busy and be able to fulfil orders but some items or colours may appear out of stock on our online store.

This applies specifically to our floor tiles where we have been advised by our supplier that the colours red, yellow and green will be in very limited supply over the coming months.  We have therefore taken the decision to temporarily suspend orders of these colours

So I suggest that if you are considering a purchase it may be sensible to deal with it as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.

If you have any doubts or questions then please do call us and we will be pleased to answer your questions.

New garage makeover in Caversham, Berkshire

In March 2021 our fitting team started work on a single garage in Caversham, Berkshire.
The completed space had all walls clad with our FlexiPanel wall solution, enabling racks, hooks and cabinets to be installed on the wall.  A resin floor was laid and some beautiful metal storage cabinets installed.  The space looked great!  But we wanted to see just how great it looked once the owners had put all their items back in, so in early April, we went back to have a look.
Below is a gallery of images, starting with all the completed shots of the space as it was when our fitting team had finished.  Then finally, showcasing how great the garage now looks with all the belongings packed back in.  We hope you love it as much as we do!

Before and After: A garage makeover

This garage in Sidcup, completed a few weeks ago is a real transformation.

Before we arrived, the garage was a standard double garage with zero storage and plain walls and floor.  With a bit of thought, design and then the installation, this space is now a beautifully bright space.

The new tiled floor adds a real pop of colour and sets off the whiteness of the ceiling and walls superbly.  Racks and shelves were also added for storage purposes and the garage is now clean, tidy and organised.

A great example of how a garage floor can be transformed

We’ve seen thousands of garage floors over the year, some in good condition and others that need a little more TLC.  This garage floor in Buckinghamshire certainly needed some help to get it back on form and we are delighted with the outcome after having one of our MMA Resin Floors laid recently.
Our Flooring Consultant arranged a video call with the customer to look at the current state and found that the substrate had failed in a few places.  The floor also had an existing coating that was peeling.  The plan was to repair the areas of damage with our repair mortar then apply a scratch coat before the final MMA coating was laid.
After!  With repair of the failed areas and a scratchcoat, the floor looks unrecognisable!  Shown here is one of our MMA Resisn Floors in Linen Grey with a smooth, seamless finish.  To find out more about our Resin Floors and to download your free brochure, click here.

Remember The Runner Beans gym fit-out?

For those of you who remember the makeover we did for The Runner Beans.  You might like to see the most recent post from Charlie on her Instagram account featuring her Garageflex installation.

Since we completed transforming her shed last May, Charlie has used the space continuously.  Whether it is doing a treadmill session with the OnePeloton App, utilising the space for a glute workout or making the most of the indoor training when the weather is rubbish outside.

Of course Charlie also gets out and about in the fresh air and it is very inspirational to see her progress over the past 10 months.  Why not see more on her account?  For those with an interest in running, there is also a Podcast which is very informative.
