About wood doctor

Hi, my name is John Benham and I work under the wood doctor. I have been a fully qualified carpenter for exactly 29years. I served my apprenticeship at the unicorn gate college at Portsmouth dockyard. Carpentry runs in the family as my father & grandfather were carpenters. I am an old school type of carpenter, extremely reliable & punctual.i am very experienced in all problem solving involving carpentry. I am more about word by mouth than glossy websites !. Look forward to meeting new customers & old. Kind regards john.

Absolutely brilliant. On time, very helpful, knowledgeable and professional. Would have no hesitation in recommending The Wood Doctor to anyone. Will be using him in the future as his work is of the highest standard

Punctual, friendly, thorough and going on with the job without fuss. Workmanship second to none. Even did a small add on floor while he was there. Would thoroughly recommend and will definitely use again. Thanks John

John is a real find. He goes out of his way to help with related problems that arise and makes realistic suggestions to improve the work ordered; also to point out any pitfalls that may crop up. He worked cheerfully and tirelessly to complete not only the loft flooring but also to build and paint a substantial log cabin in our garden in time to beat variable weather John is a professional to his roots. His trade name 'Wood Doctor' could not be more appropriate.

Great job - on time, great guy. Willing to quote for other jobs. Already asked for him to do my fences. Can’t recommend more. Understands my night shift pattern too.

John approached the laying of our laminate flooring with professionalism. He consulted with us on various occasions to achieve the excellent finish that we had hoped for. We are very pleased with the end product.
