Window fitter / Conservatory installer

We are very pleased with the work carried out by Base to Apex- replacement and installation of a sash window, and construction of a window seat. The work is of a high standard, and was done efficiently and to suit our rather difficult time constraints. The weather has also delayed the work on several occasions. Thank you, we will certainly ask you in the future and can recommend you.

I posted my job for a new staircase on xmas day, certainly not expecting a reply that day but Nigel did. I contacted him a month later & he came out less than 12 hours later on a Sat morning to weigh up the job. A couple of options quoted for at fantastic rates were sent out within a few days & Nigel explained options relating to building regs. He managed to slot my job in 3 days before originally planned. Nigel & Damien did a cracking job and Claire in the office always got back to my emails very quickly!

Nigel did a very good job on my extension build and was very knowledgeable on building works. The job took longer than expected as he had other contracts going on at the same time. Other than that I would recommend Nigel for their building works.

Carpenter / Joiner

Couldn't fault Nigel and his welder mate (Dale) during the 5 days they were working on my project. Nigel was great from start to finish, even helped me and partner Vickie find a plasterer to assist with some existing issues. We can't fault the finished product, it looks amazing in the dining room and much better than we could have imagined. Thanks again Nigel on bringing to life our furniture ideas.

Nigel and Dale came round the same day I posted the job. They knew exactly what I wanted, sent me an estimate and drawings. I needed some help with design and Nigel was there with helpful suggestions. Design and price were agreed and date set. Work began on time and within less than a day I had a beautiful, character-adding porch on the front of my house. Quality excellent, they used the best products, they were professional and efficient and there were no hidden costs. Highly recommended.

What is the legal minimum gap between spindles on a staircase?

    Sorry maximum gap

  • Nigel Thompson's Answer

    Hi Graeme. The minimum gap between any spindle is 100mm at the widest part of the profile. This is to stop a child getting there head stuck between the spindles. Some spindles when we fit are tapered in places. Because of this, I generally fit at 90mm for piece of mind.

Why is all the information I receive referring to Tradesmen? Are there no females listed as tradespeople?

  • Nigel Thompson's Answer

    Is this really a serious question. Hasn't society gone mad enough, It's been called tradesmen from the beginning. That could mean tradesMEN or tradesWO(men) We are all aware of women taking on different roles within the construction industry, and I hope like them many more take it up. But seriously, is there any need for such a question.
