Working Space – Covid 19 Boosts Home Improvements
In a world where we’re spending more time at home, it feels like we need more space. MAH Steel fabricators can help with that.
Families are battling working from home whilst battling home-schooling their children and still trying to find space to relax. Luckily, for those still paid a full wage whilst working at home they’re avoiding a lot of extra spending. The cost of a cramped commute on a train or wasting petrol in standstill traffic? No need. London priced lunches when you leave your sandwiches at home? Raid the fridge instead. After work drinks for a colleague’s birthday? All done via a Zoom invite.
Save or spend?
Maybe this extra spending money would normally go on a much-needed holiday, but not in the current climate. Instead, people are at home with children running around their feet and realising they really do need that bigger space. Reluctant to move to a new home in these uncertain times, families are looking at how to improve their homes. A recent survey by MoneySuperMarket found that around a quarter (26%) of those asked are using lockdown to invest in their homes.
Up, down and out
Loft conversions, home extensions and basement projects need a steel structure and fabricator, that’s where we come in. MAH Steel fabricators specialise in supplying steelwork to these types of projects. The housing market has been hit hard during the pandemic and it’s difficult to sell and move at such an uncertain time. With the rise in demand for home offices and workspaces a conversion is the best option.
Our team of steel surveyors and specialist steel fabricators are with you for every step of your project. Once the site is ready for a steel site survey, we are able get an understanding of the details and requirements to make it a successful project. Once we’ve approved all drawings and plans it’s steel fabrication and production time. Our steel fabricator team have over 100 years combined experience and they are the fastest, most-accurate team of professionals.
After our steel fabricators have completed your bespoke steel structure, we then take care of the delivery, no matter how tricky. Our cranes can deliver steel beams high, low or to the back of a home with thorough safety precautions in place. The steel fabrication and delivery taken care of, you’re one step closer to completing that conversion project.
Giving something back
With the demand for home offices and extensions increasing over the lockdown periods, this has enabled us to grow during these uncertain times. We’re lucky enough to be employing more people, including steel fabricators, steel welders, steel delivery drivers and clerical staff. Some of our new team members are on apprenticeships so MAH Steel are also proudly giving something back to our local community.
