Case Studies


WMS were pleased to assist when a long standing client came to us with a set of particularly awkward circumstances they needed help with including possible road closures!

Faced with working on a split level property, with limited access and parking, sitting snuggly in a tight one way system on a main thoroughfare, WMS have come through with flying colours!

Faced with stripping the existing roof and replacing with new, full cavity wall insulation, application of the full Webber render system to the rear elevation and full external redecoration, this project has been completed with minimal disruption to residents and the wider community. 

Meticulous planning, phased scaffolding, delivery and collection times, sympathetic road closures, out of hours working and collaborative communication with all stakeholders have ensured a smooth roll out and delivery of this work, all completed on time, in full and to the delight of the client, WMS - your trusted contractor!

WMS Devon Painting Team have recently completed the external decoration of this lovely scheme - much to the delight of the local residents!

External decorations are never ideal at this time of year but due to painting being delayed by the pandemic a further delay was not possible.

Upon instruction WMS sought the advice of the local coatings manufacturer for the most appropriate system and specification and following a joint site visit agreed next steps!

Whilst keeping one eye on the weather forecast WMS planned all works accordingly applying all coatings in line with recommendations.

Keeping the residents in the loop was key to the success of this project and is testament to the team on site,  the feedback upon completion has been excellent!

Team work = dream work at WMS!
