House Extensions in WiganBuilding Contractor in Warrington

Our additional building services include:


The groundwork, drainage and foundation stages of a project heavily influence finished builds, brickwork or hard landscaping themes. Our building contractors understand that preparation is the key to success on all jobs in Warrington, St Helens and the surrounding areas. We can manage excavations, earthworks, sub-base preparations and more.

Because we also cover the North West and the Channel Islands of Guernsey and Jersey, AK Brickwork offers local and regional scope that’s the envy of even the biggest house builders and bricklayers.

Structural Alterations

A structural alteration is often the best way to adapt your home, and to add a more open aesthetic, some welcome space or some much-needed light. Our building contractors can remove structural walls, create structural openings, deal with load-bearing steelwork, and add apertures that allow for the installation of new doors and windows.

An alteration can enhance how you live, and it provides you with a welcome return on investment that far outweighs your initial outlay. We work closely with architects and designers to guarantee safe, lasting and structurally sound alterations.


Great examples of architectural stonemasonry exist in many parts of Warrington, St Helens and the other areas we work in. While it is very much a traditional skill at heart, stonemasonry work also plays a pivotal role in the modern construction sector. This is particularly true when we work on refurbishments and renovations at period properties.

Our building contractors and bricklayers understand that you’ll want to preserve the traditional charm of an older hone and maintain its personality. We achieve this with dedication and a gentle approach that protects features made in stone.


Lofts, garages or barns, our building contractors can convert your home and help you to make use of underused space. Inspire yourself with a new studio, relax in the comfort of a purpose-built man cave or keep productive by having a home office made to a bespoke specification. We can design and build your conversion in any way you want.

Choose from dormer, mansard or hip-to-gable loft conversions, complete with rooflights for natural light transfer and a roomier feel. Alternatively, opt for attached, integrated or detached garage conversions, or have our building contractors transform a barn into something truly special.

Refurbishment and Renovation

From St Helens to Skelmersdale, from Warrington to Wigan, and from Guernsey to Jersey, we can supply your refurbishment or renovation with time-served tradesmen. This work sees us improving, repairing or modernising defective or dilapidated properties, using a variety of construction skills including retrofitting.

Typically, our building contractors focus on cosmetic or structural flaws during a refurbishment or renovation. The results make homes habitable, fit for purpose and add significant resale value to your property investment.


During the later stages of construction work from our house builders, or a refurbishment or renovation from our building contractors, the rough, uneven surfaces of walls and ceilings require a plaster finish. This finish protects brickwork and blockwork, and leaves walls and ceilings in a suitable condition for decorators to do their side of the job.

There are several different types of plaster we can use; cement, clay, gypsum and lime to name just a few. AK Brickwork can also apply plaster to stud partitioning installations fitted with plasterboard, often used to make interior walls.

We also trade as commercial builders, offering services to businesses, developers, landlords and local authorities.
