I have been in the building trade for 43 years and my sons joined me as they left school. Between us we are experts in all trades of building and roofing and road construction. We are a very friendly family business who look after their customers. We like to leave sites clean and tidy and always clean up our own mess! We do all our own groundwork. We try to be very competitive with our pricing and are always willing to ‘make a deal’. Very often I do little extra jobs for nothing. Our main aim is to please. I am contactable day or night and can be used in an emergency. We have all necessary insurances in place.

A magnificent job and I am so pleased. The "decking" that I originally required is excellent, good wood, strong and solid. Groundwork had to be undertaken also as ground slopped and this was done to precision, even put in a door so that I can store things underneath. I then asked for a "shed" and a Children's play area which again have been completed to such a high standard I could not have hoped for better. The Team of workers are polite, trustworthy, conscientious and honest. I cannot praise them enough.

Absolutely terrible. Completely shoddy and abusive man. Had to pay to remove him from property. Work not carried out as requested-taking shortcuts, forcing materials on without properly measuring, caused damage to existing guttering etc. Lied about cost of materials eg he verbally stated 39 quid for a plastic fascia board which was actually 6 quid when he showed me receipt. Having to pay double to clean up the mess he created! DO NOT USE.
