About BMF Building Services

I went to college doing carpentry at Bridgwater college and G course and ONC at Weymouth. I moved to Romsey, Hants and worked around the New Forest area. I did a lot of work as a sub contractor mainly on carpentry doing price work. I did all the carpentry on Warsash school for their new classes, also all the carpentry on a number of prestige houses near the Hamble. Ive worked on Winchester Cathedral, various shopfits, Disney store in Frankfurt and quite a few jobs with Havelock Europa including shops such as Marks and Spencer, House of Fraser and Debenhams.
I've done various extensions in the Romsey area, numerous doors, upvc windows, flat roofs and a lot of traditional roofs which need to be cut using roofing square.
At one time I worked for a builder in the New Forest, AA Morgan at Cadnam where most of the work was on older properties with sliding sash windows and timber floors, windows etc.
Whilst in Hampshire I was in the guild of master craftsmen for my roofing skills etc .
I've completed contracts with Southampton council for repairs to housing.
Then I came back to Somerset where I have been doing some barn conversions on my own and carpentry for 7 new houses at Lyme Regis and Somerset and Dorset.
With the council work and barn conversions I did all the plumbing, bathrooms toilets, sinks, basins etc.
Over at Blandford I put in 15 kitchens for the Royal Signals. I've done hard standings, bases for sheds, footpaths/drives and even carports.
I've re-roofed several farmhouses, and replaced tiles or slates, and chimney repairs.
As you can see there's not may jobs I haven't done.

    Barry is a superstar. I brought him in to do this job and several months later, he's still working on my renovation project as he can turn his hand to pretty much anything I ask and do a great job at it. His years of experience shine through when problems crop up and he is excellent at proposing solutions. I'm delighted with his work. Highly recommended!
