We understand it can be hard to choose a carpenter or builder. The obvious things you will probably consider include finding someone you can trust, who is reliable and who offers value for money. We agree these things are important.

But it is also vital to establish that they are both legally and technically capable of completing the job correctly and professionally - unfortunately anyone can call themselves a "carpenter" or "builder" without a single qualification or insurance policy. Also consider the worst case scenario - do you feel confident that they will stick around to take ownership of, and resolve, problems or will that mobile be on constant voicemail/turned off?

Word of mouth remains one of the best ways to choose a builder and we are proud that the majority of our work comes from personal recommendation or repeat business.

If you really are starting from scratch you will find most professionals will recommend that a good place to begin is the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) of which we are proud to be a member. This means that we have been vetted by the FMB through the checking of our work, our business operations and our financial credibility (ie: we know what we're doing and we do it well!). We also adhere to their Code of Practice and this, in conjunction with our own company ethos, helps to ensure first class service to all our customers.

But we don't need to blow our own trumpet - read exactly what some of our customers say here!
