About Us:

We are based in the Plymouth and Tamar valley area, we do however cover a much larger area. Carrying out works through out Devon and Cornwall and into Exeter.

Any customers should be aware of the following, this is order to clarify any confusion for customers an estimate is not a fair assumption of price only a guess.

We will provide a fully detailed quotation outlining exactly what work is being carried out and where, plus materials to be used. We will not do estimates so your bill will be exactly what is quoted.

Like wise we will no longer undertake extras until all other works quoted for are completed and paid for. All extras will be quoted for and detailed in a written quotation.

Payments up front or deposits generally we don't not take these unless in certain circumstances eg double glazing products and non standard products.

We will be asking for references as opposed to ratings, this is in response to customer request.

repair and paint a woodend boathouse - Joinery & Carpentry job in Falmouth

“Would suggest you need a VG rating. I would rate his work as VG.I live some distance from our holiday home therefore needed someone to do the work 'long distance' which I could not oversee. Shire quoted promptly, did the work on time and to the quote. I was impressed with the quality of the finished work -which included not just renovation and repainting of my very old wooden boathouse but also the construction and fitting of new doors. The quality of workmanship for the doors is impressive. ”

Break up concrete - Demolition & Clearing job in Plymouth

There are many trades which do roof felt on sheds, i would try a general builder, landscaper first then a roofer. however for a habitable building or room then i would use a roofer first or a carpenter or builder who does roofing.
Simple, ask your builder for a copy of his public liability certificate this will have the insurance or brokers details on . give them a call quoting the policy number on the certificate and ask for comformation of validity.
when to ask we provide details before starting but you can ask at any time any reputable tradesman will be happy to oblige you.
