Pete is an extremely experienced builder and roofer who is very knowledgeable and quick to respond to requests. He has done a lot of building work for us over the years including an extension and we have always found his work to be of the highest quality. He communicates with you frequently and you therefore feel that he is listening closely to what you want. Nothing is too much trouble and with his wide network of skilled tradesmen he can always find the right man for the job. Thoroughly recommend him! More...

I gave Pete very short notice to carry out the work I required but he very kindly fitted me in and prevented what could have been a lot of hassle. His work was fantastic, very neat and tidy and you could tell he really cares for what he was doing. I highly recommend using him. More...

Peter is very tborough in his work. I needed a new front door step to be built in keeping with the age of the house which is Victorian. Peter listened to what I wanted and also gave me some ideas but all the time made sure i was happy with the outcome. The step was built within a few hours and I am very happy with the work carried out. More...

I hired Pete to install some decking. He came round, on time to take measurements and then came back another day with a quote. The quote was broken down so I could see all the costs. He completed the build on time. He arrived every day promptly and kept me informed. He’s polite and friendly and I felt comfortable leaving him a key to my property. I’m really pleased with the work that he’s completed and would happily recommend Pete. More...


Most garages are suitable for conversion. Points to consider are quality of existing structure, roof quality, floor quality and access. Usually a garage conversion will come under permitted development and most importantly, building control.

An initial visit from myself to check out basic suitability at the onset.
Followed by a budget quote to make sure that you understand what the works will cost approximately.
If it's something that you are prepared to proceed with then the first thing is to contact local planning and talk to a surveyor about what it is you propose to do. They will normally ask for a drawing outlining your proposal and will then tell you how to proceed.

Before any work is undertaken all utilities must be located. Garage can then be stripped internally and works can go ahead under the local building offices guidelines.

I've been in the building industry for over 35 years. Starting in office partitioning I moved into learning bricklaying and plastering. I ran my own roofing company for over 20 years and went to college during this time to learn the trade of leadwork. I've built three natural swimming pools including associated landscape work. I've built many extentions and loft conversions along with completing hundreds of new roofs both slated and tiled.

I welcome building control to look at any or all of my work during and after completion. Once signed off the work is fully guaranteed.

To be able to stand back and get the wow factor on completion.

I've worked for myself or ran my own business since the age of 21 and I was inspired by the love of manual work and the freedom that came with working for myself.

Because I'm honest and I know from experience what I'm talking about.
I'm also NVQ qualified and can obviously give references.
