Our Team

Skilled builders and tradespeople in Cumbria, the Lake District and the North West

Our team consists of skilled, fully accredited tradespeople from the local area. We can offer specialist trades for specific jobs or provide a full team for a larger project requiring all aspects of building services.

We have worked with the same tradespeople for many years and have built up excellent working relationships with them; their standards of workmanship echo ours and adhere to the FMB code of Practice, and we are more than happy to take full responsibility for all of the work carried our by employees and sub contractors on site.

The range of trades we can provide is as follows:

  • Plumbers
  • Electricians
  • Plasterers
  • Joiners
  • Stone masons
  • General builders
  • Decorators

All of our tradespeople are skilled and well-qualified, but for extra safety and reassurance we insist on specific accreditations for our plumbers and electricians. Our plumbers are professionals who take the safety of their customers seriously and they are all on the Gas Safe register. Our electricians are all qualified and competent professionals who are registered with the NICEIC, which has been assessing the technical competence of electricians for over 50 years. 

For more information on the projects we have recently completed, please see our projects pages.


  • Windermere Marina

    Troughtons did a fabulous job on our property. Their attention to detail and design input together with their craftsmanship, transformed a rundown 1960's flat into a wonderful modern living space. Throughout the work their team were friendly, helpful, conscientious and reliable. It's not just me who is impressed by the quality of the finish, I've also had comments from the visitors who have stayed there too.
