9th April 2021 Able Projects began the week in the pretty market town of Masham in North Yorkshire, where we are refurbing a holiday cottage. This has been a long project working around lockdowns, reconfiguring the footprint of an old converted stable, installing en suite bathrooms, exposing original stone walls and installing insulated panelling. Work…
Are You Able?
18th March 2021 Able Projects was built to solve a problem. Johnny had bought a house on Rectory Fields and had been let down by pretty much every trade. From patchy paintwork to the infamous staircase (it’s a conversation best had with a glass of wine in hand) reliable, accountable, responsive professionals were thin on…
Reasons To Be Cheerful
4th January 2021 Finally! We’ve seen the back of 2020 and are peeping into 2021 with a mixture of hope and trepidation, so what better time to look towards what’s hopefully a happier year ahead. Although further lockdowns are on the cards it feels like the end is in sight, so let’s hang in there…
How many insects does it take to rent a flat?*
4th December 2020 One of the reasons we set Able Projects up was to address the challenges in finding and coordinating reliable trades. That’s why we value effective project management just as highly as the technical ‘on the tools’ work. It’s also one of the reasons we do a lot of work with estate agents,…
20th November 2020 Decorations up yet? Ordinarily it would feel way too soon, but a lot of people are making the best of Lockdown 2.0 by bringing out the baubles. This has been such a strange year but fingers crossed the restrictions end on 2nd December and we can celebrate Christmas with our loved ones.…
10th November 2020 We talk a lot about being ‘proudly local’ because we think it’s important to understand our community and the people within it, so that we can work sensitively around your lifestyle and commitments, sharing inspiration from other projects in the neighbourhood. Working effectively with local suppliers means projects run smoothly and with…
Winter is Coming
6th November 2020 What a week. With Storm Aiden kicking things off and then lockdown 2.0, like it or not we’re going to be hunkering down indoors for the foreseeable future. At this time of year when strong winds and high rainfall are an almost everyday occurance it’s important to think about weatherproofing your home.…
30th October 2020 One way or another, with the nights drawing in, 10pm curfews and local lockdowns we’re going to be spending a lot more time in our homes. William Morris famously said ‘Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful’ so now we have…
Kerb Your Enthusiasm
16th October 2020 There’s much debate at Able HQ about the importance of kerb appeal. If you were raised to have the shiniest step on the street a smart looking exterior is a matter of great pride. Others would rather focus on the interior decor and give the neighbours something to talk about. Whichever side…
We recently had a wall papered and another painted in our flat by Johnny and Paul at Able Projects and I couldn't recommend them enough. Professional, affordable and extremely nice guys. The attention to detail was exceptional and worked to our specifications impeccably. I'd had a few other painter and decorators quote for the job, but all seemed off on the paint we chose offering alternatives and pushing for something to suit them - not Johnny, he just rolled with it and did such a great job. We couldn't be happier, and would definitely use them again.
Great service, very helpful, clean and tidy good workmanship. highly recommended.
Great to work with. Recommend. We will work with ABLE again.
Highly recommend Able Projects, Johnny was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and can’t be happier with the work that was done. Very friendly, helpful and patient with my kiddos too. Will definitely contact again.
They did a great job painting the rendering in a new grey colour and resetting the window sills so water ran off away from wall. Job was done efficiently, expeditiously and effectively. Thank you Paul and a John for a job well done.
We used the services of Able Projects and are glad we did. They painted windows and rendering around the whole outside of our 3 story house. We were so impressed that we are having them back for further work. They are a highly professional team, very friendly and kept us up to date with what needed to be done all the way through the process. Thanks guys. See you again soon. 5* for sure
