Commercial building services

Commercial building services for Cumbria, the Lake District and the North West

Photo of Commercial Building services projectWe have developed our commercial building services to include commercial building refurbishment work, commercial restoration projects, commercial renovation work, and specialist services such as bespoke joinery or traditional stone masonry.

We have a full team of trades available for commercial projects including general builders, carpenters and joiners, plasterers, plumbers, electricians, stone masons and decorators. All of whom have accreditations and qualifications from the appropriate body. As a local company we’re well versed in the demands of traditional Lake District buildings and we’re not phased by commercial sites that have tricky or restricted access.

We always work to exceed expectations. We particularly pride ourselves on the quality of workmanship that goes into every project and we have received awards and accolades for our most recent commercial building project, the Epi Centre in Ambleside.

Please see our commercial project page and our awards page for more details of our successful approach to commercial building works in Cumbria and the Lake District.

    Troughton's is a family firm and after working on our property throughout 2015 and 2016, we feel honoured to have been part of this family during the renovation / conversion of our property. During 2015 when the farmhouse was being renovated we were still living in Lincoln. Despite the distance, Jim and Paul Troughton kept us regularly informed on progress, on decisions to be taken and sent us regular photographs. Jim not only acted as a builder but full project manager and his son Paul was instrumental in design choices ensuring a beautiful finished product. Without even asking for many of the features we now have, Jim sourced traditional stone flags for our fire places and some floored areas, plus traditional looking timbers and slates for window trusses and sills. Jim knows exactly how our old farmhouse and barn conversion should look. His own staff have a wide range of skills and where necessary he used skilled sub-contractors. The quality of everyone's work has been faultless and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Every member of staff working on our property has been courteous, polite and friendly at all times. The Troughton Home Improvements team have produced a beautiful home for us. It is truly our dream house.
