Superior build quality
New homes are built to a higher standard than ever before, from the latest building materials to the newest appliances. In fact, the cost of upgrading an old home to new build specifications is nearly £45,000. We work with the Environment Agency at planning stage and NHBC throughout the build, to guarantee you a high specification home.
Our quality assurance

You get a blank canvas
Whenever you move into a new home, it’s natural that you’ll want to put your own stamp on it. With new builds you have a blank canvas and you can even work with the builder to help shape the space the way you want it. And with Taylor Wimpey, you can use Touchpoint, our unique online portal which allows you to choose interior options and visualise how your new home will feel to live in.
Less DIY, and more you time
Forget all those wasted weekends doing repairs and maintenance. If you find any snags, we’ll take care of them, so you don’t have to.
