At ‘247 Carpentry’ the majority of our customer base are like ourselves average hard working people, not those with endless pockets, but those who come to us that are looking for a quality job at a sensible cost, for which we offer a realistic fixed priced quotation and that they are happy during and at the completion of the works and keep coming back, because we do it right and when its right its right. We have a large portfolio stemming from loft conversions works through to complete property extensions, alterations & developments and can send you to see many of our previous works that would be similar to your own and we know our customers are happy to recommend us.

Over many years we have purchased our own plant so we are not hiring in. we bulk buy and stock all our consumables at the best rates. We have a large turnover of materials with our local builders merchants and return we are offered competitive rates of which we pass to our clients. We are approachable and happy to guide your project from start to completion or do the parts of the work if the customer wishes to be involved (we do a lot of work for self build clients).

Steve at 247 Carpentry turned our tired, old 1950’s bungalow into a beautiful 4-bedroom house, and carried out the work as if it was his own house, taking pride in every aspect of the build along the way. Steve’s skills and standards are high, and when we were met with a couple of unexpected problems, Steve and his very capable team solved them for us, while still keeping everything on track. Steve is clearly very experienced and accommodating, full of useful advice, and has a good eye for design and efficient use of space, and was very good at liaising with the other trades, and also Building Control so that everything kept progressing to plan. We were always kept up to date, informed of what would be happening next and when, and generally made our experience as stress-free as possible. Steve took time to fully understand our build to ensure that every aspect was covered. The quote arrived when Steve said it would, was very detailed and clear, and Steve and his team arrived to start work on agreed start date. ? Everyone on Steve’s team was pleasant, hard-working (even in the torrential rain on one day when I would not have expected anyone to be working!), and kept and tidy and safe working environment, and everything tidied away, made safe and secure, and ready for the next day. We are really pleased with our newly-transformed home, and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending 247 Carpentry for any size of work. - Ralph
