Hello everyone, 

thank you for allowing us to join your forum.  

We are in the process of buying a property near Cortelha which needs quite a lot of work to renovate.  Our main concerns are; no wiring (only the fuse box and large cable), also it has been suggested that we remove 60cm high of plaster to replace with a waterproof additive render throughout the house.  Our questions are who would you recommend to do this? How much of it can we do ourselves to save money? And what are the laws relating to this? We also need a new kitchen and a plumber!! Any advice whatsoever would be much appreciated. 

Many thanks for your time,

The Smiths!!

Hi,

We have just had our holiday house refurbished throughout.

We used a plumbing/electrical contractor who we would recommend.

They are based in Albufeira and not sure where you are in relation to them?

Hope all goes well.

Many thanks for your response. Are they reliable and reasonably priced?

Yes they are very reliable and reasonably priced for us.

Because we are based in the UK, when I need work doing I would email Fabio, he would email me a price and then leave it to them to get on with the works to the house. Not had any issues to date.

However these are my experiences, so I cannot guarantee this.
