Blacksmith / Metal worker

An excellent job. The wrought iron fencing on the steps are strong and secure and have made the space attractive and smart. Attention to detail was evident and despite extremes in weather, ranging from extreme heat to heavy rain the job was completed efficiently and in good time. Thank you. ??

Excellent work. Peter suggested a solution to the path which we hadn't thought about and the result is a much safer entrance and we are really pleased with the look of it. Thank you Peter.

Peter started the job when he said he would and made a really good job of it. When finished the site was left clean and tidy with all rubbish removed. I would recommend Peter to anyone needing building work done with confidence that he would do the same quality of work for them.

Absolutely exceptional job. Peter is clearly a perfectionist and has spent the whole day getting our iron gate and wall fixed properly to make sure it looks good and is safe for our toddler. He has done a cracking job. Thank you Peter.

The job wasn't straight forward and i had a couple of options for resolution. Peter was prompt to respond, talked through the options and gave a good price for the work. He completed the job in a timely way despite the snow with good quality materials and to a good finish. There were no additional costs and I was kept updated on things throughout the work being undertaken. I would definitely recommend Beamish Construction Services and would use again.

Peter gave me the best quote of three, then finished what turned out to be a troublesome job to a very high standard. It's clear that Peter is a perfectionist and he was fussier than me about the finished product. Very impressed and very highly recommended.

Lots I could say, but restricted to 512 characters. Peter is a one man band who concentrates on his high levels of workmanship. Got the quote from Peter on how to correct the issue. We employed an independent structural engineer and after his survey, he was shown Peters quote. The independant agreed with Peter that the solution given was correct. Peter keeps you fully updated so you know what is being done and when. My neighbours are impressed, I am impressed and more importantly my wife is impressed.

Peter was excellent in giving good advice regarding the driveway and enhancing the surrounding area. The workmanship was meticulous and everything kept tidy as possible during the process. Peter turned up every day bar one, when the weather was atrocious making it impossible to work. I would recommend Beamish Construction to anyone wanting good workmanship carried out with the minimum of fuss. I would certainly use them again myself should the need arise.

's question
Thu 6 Feb 2014 19:51pm

I have a flat grp roof (replacing a felt one) the sides of which come down over a plastic fascia. A gap has now appeared between the two in several places, exposing the roof void. The roof was put on about 4 years ago and measures about 44sq meters. What can I do to correct this? I wondered whether I could screw the grp on to the fascia,but would expansion cause more problems?

    Hello Plastic has a very high expansion rate , GRP probably expands also , in the large area you mention, so yes, expansion or incorrect fixings is probably causing your problem , could even be the roof moving slightly with expansion . Joining the two together could cause more problems . There is an adhesive black foam tape used on industrial buildings tin roofs [ about 1 inch thick ] that could be used in the gap. Hope this helps Peter R. Beamish Const. Services.

Can i replace single glazing with double glazing into the existing wooden frames.

  • Peter Ruddick's Answer

    Hello Carol If it is a listed building then, no . [you could try secondary frames ]. If it is not, then yes . I am just completing a similar project on 6 windows in a two story bay , with wooden windows . We have had problems with hidden wood rot in the frames that had to have new wood cut in before the new double glazing units were fitted . We used stepped units in the lights and normal in the main panes due to size restrictions , fitted with wood beads inside and out , to hide the seals.[ We could not get a router in to rebate the frames.] Hope this helps .
