Built a new large outbuilding with fine cladding detail

Mr Carey was extremely helpful and very knowledgable on how to achieve the best outcome for this project. The base which was concrete and insulation was done to perfection which was carried out with the main timber frame.

As the pictures show this cladding was installed with precision and Mr Carey's advice and knowledge proved helpfull and had great ideas to achieve the final aspects which I initially had different ideas.

Summer House built to 1st fix

Summer HouseWe can't recommend Carey’s Carpentry highly enough. The work they carried out is exemplary, far better than any flat pack alternatives on the current market, bespoke built with far better quality and finish. I've never known such friendly, approachable workmen to arrive early every day and tidy up everything when they leave. No job was too small and last minute design alterations were carried out without hesitation or issues, shows years of knowledge in their trade and skills. We have already suggested them to quite a few people looking to get work done and have no hesitation in recommending them, I’ve already procured their services for my loft conversion next year 2012. Thanks again CC for creating a beautiful summer house!

Roof reconstruction to convert hip roof to gable

James and his team did an excellent job on our roof conversion, they worked through the weekend to meet the agreed schedule and completed the work in a very short time, at a fair price and to the satisfaction of the Building Inspector. James kept us fully in the picture, openly discussed solutions with us as the work progressed and responded positively to a request for extra works to replace facias and soffits. All the team were very pleasant and hard working and we are very pleased with the end result.

Fitted new skirting boards and doors throughout house, replaced door frames, new bannister and spindles. Loft hatch, new flooring in hall and cupboard under stairs.

James was very accommodating with our situation and worked round our schedule (baby on the way) as the work originally started in October 2012 without any problems. At the start of the project linked up well with the plasterer so that they worked in tandem. James was very reliable and his work was to a high standard. He was always making sure that we got the best look and finish of work when we were unsure ourselves of how it should look.
