We specialise in replacing old wooden fascia with maintenance free UPVC Fascias.
Available in a standard flat profile or a distinctive sculpted ‘ogee’ style, our fascia boards are easy to fit and make a smart improvement to your home.
Replacing cavity wall ties with a remedial tying system is a low-cost alternative to rebuilding walls that are suffering from wall tie corrosion and has become the accepted method of solving the problem of cavity tie failure.
EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer) rubber roofing is an extremely durable solution for flat and low sloping roofs. High quality rubber roofing for flat roofs offers exceptional durability to all types of weather. The rubber is cut to size so typically one piece will cover the roof, providing a water tight solution with exfor decades to come.
With different thicknesses available dependent on foot traffic, rubber roofs provide a strong and flexible product for your flat roof. We can discuss your needs and provide a solution suitable for you.
- Choice: Variety of widths & thicknesses
- Safe: Heat & flame free installation
- Flexible: Resists extreme temperature, UV & ageing
- Durable: Will not tear, split or crack
- Maintenance free & environmentally friendly
Roof Tiling and Slates

Fascias, Soffits and Gutters
Full replacement or cap over?
Very often we attend houses delivering a range of products and see customers who have had cap over fascia boards fitted instead of having the old rotten fascia boards removed and replaced with uPVC fascias.
It is a little cheaper in the short term to cover up a problem but we believe in doing a quality job first time. If the rotten wood is left in place then it remains rotten year after year where the fixing pins can become loose and potentially leave your new fascia board unsecured.
So the answer to the question is a full replacement for a quality job…
uPVC or wood?
Historically fascia and barge boards were fitted with a wood solution. The problem with wood is that it is porous in its make up and over a period of time, water penetrates the board leading to rot and water ingress.
The uPVC solution leaves you with a long lasting solution which will not deteriorate, discolour and only needs a wash down periodically to keep it clean.
Wall tie failure occurs when the ability of the built-in tie-system to secure the façade wall of a building to its structural frame is compromised. Failure may be due to too few ties having been incorporated into the build or deterioration of the ties as a result of rust.
In the case of wall tie corrosion, the rusting steel generates an expanding build-up of iron oxide layers as the steel erodes. The damage that can be caused by the expanding ties depends on the type of wall tie used in construction.
Ask us how we can prevent your walls from structural failure using this low cost alternative to rebuilding.

I engaged LMG to help re-render the front of my property, they arrived on time, finished the job pretty quickly and were clear and upfront about the project throughout. I would definitely recommend them.
Very happy with the external wall insulation work LMG has provided and at a reasonable price too. The boys were very friendly and hard working,reliable and the quality of the work is excellent. I was always kept in the loop. I will definitely be contacting them in the near future for work on the inside. Brilliant company!!
Very happy with the work done. Very clean no mess couldn’t fault this company. Recommend LMG Home Improvements to anyone.
After 2 weeks cooling off period, the boys were here the following week, had my house hacked off to bare brick, soffit wall ties done, weather boards replaced, facias and soffits and an acrylic honeysuckle render put on. Looks really good, very happy with the price as Carmarthen builders were much more expensive. In total it took them a whole 7 days to complete the job. My neighbours are very impressed with their work. The only downfall was that I had to keep them in bacon and egg sandwiches, coffee and biscuits. 🙂 Would definitely recommend them.
Recently had some insulation render put on our 2 bed terraced house. After the 2 week cooling off period the chaps were on site & had the job done relatively quickly & for a very competitive price. We’re very happy with our Ardente colour which has set off a mini trend on our street.
I would definitely recommend LMG. We’ve got them back on site in a week to render our extension (which we couldn’t do at the same time due to works on our shed)
Want to say a massive thank you to all the guys at LMG Home Improvements! I’m extremely happy with the outcome! The guys on site have been fantastic throughout and a real credit to your company. Will happily recommend to anyone.
LMG provided a good, reliable quotation for the works that was in line with other quotes obtained. The quality of the insulation and rendering work completed is excellent; including the detailing around windows, pipes and roof line.
Communication with LMG was excellent throughout, with regular updates at each stage of the work. The professionalism of the communication was greatly appreciated, long with helpful advice on the technical points of the insulation system.
We are very pleased with the finished rendering to the front of our house, so we are planning to have LMG do the back next year.
The workmen were very friendly, easy to talk to and listened to our requirements, telling us what would happen, why and when. We felt they had pride in their work.
Very happy with the work done. Very clean and no mess. Couldn’t fault the company. Recommend LMG Home Improvements to anyone.

External Wall Insulation
If you have a property built before 1940, the chances are it is built from stone or solid brick and is poorly insulated. As well as making your home cosy and warm, External Wall Insulation provides a brand new finish to your house in a choice of colours.
Rendering & Facades
Give your property a facelift and prevent any nasty damp from penetrating into your brickwork through cracked render. We offer a range of options for rendering and facades for terraced, semi detached and larger properties.
Cavity Wall Extraction
If your property has had cavity wall insulation in the past, the chances are your home is suffering or is at risk of suffering from damp and mould. We specialise in the removal of cavity wall insulation, eliminating the causal factors of penetrating damp.
In addition to providing EWI, Rendering and Facades, we are often asked to renew fascias & soffits and gutters. We also provide a cavity wall clearance service and install remedial wall-ties for cavity walls with a chequered past.
