About Us:

Hi my name is James. I have been a bricklayer for approximately 15 years. I have built extensions, walls and houses. I can do hard landscaping and fencing I enjoy ground works

I am hard working and very reasonably priced. Can provide photos of previous work.


I worked with my father weekends and school holiday since I was 12 years old. He is a general builder. I served my 3 year apprenticeship with a much larger company where I learnt skill to work on industrial buildings and many MOD projects. I prefer the job satisfaction of domestic jobs.
