Residential building services

Residential and domestic building services for Cumbria, the Lake District and the North West

Photo of Residential building services projectOver our years in business, we’ve worked on a broad portfolio of residential renovations, sympathetic extensions, and barn conversions. We cover all types of domestic and residential building projects ranging from new build to historic and traditional Lake District buildings, and we have good experience of work on properties for the lettings and holiday rental market.

Our skilled tradesmen deliver the highest quality of workmanship, and we can co-ordinate the full range of trades required for the site - from general builders to plumbers, electricians to plasterers, stone masons to joiners, decorators to carpenters.

We always aim to exceed expectations, complete on time, and work to your budget. We are proud to be members of the Federation of Master builders, and we’re committed to the highest standards of customer service and workmanship in the industry through their code of practice.

We can help you with the planning process, we will work closely with other specialists (architects and surveyors), and you can expect us to manage your site professionally and tidily. And of course we are local and family run so we’re easy to talk to and we enjoy chatting with our clients over the odd mug of tea (only if it’s well-earned of course).

Please see our FMB page and our projects pages for more details of our successful approach to residential and domestic building works in Cumbria and the Lake District.

    Dear Jim. At the end of what we might call phase one of the work, Margaret and I would like to express our appreciation of your workforce for their careful and excellent work. They are a credit to the trade where so often customers are left unhappy. Cheerful, responsive, clean and thorough in their work, they are a pleasure to have around and we shall have no hesitation in using you again when we have a plan for the outer office and utility room. It is also a great pleasure to have doors that fit and close properly.
    Keith and Margaret
