About Defreitas construction

I started in the construction industry 17 years ago at the very bottom and have worked my way up to where I am today as a general builder. I have experience in most trades from plastering to bricklaying and over the years have acquired all the tools and knowledge that I need to complete all jobs to the best possible standard, quickly and efficiently. I can undertake most projects you may require ranging from a simple door swinging or plastering to total refurbishments. Here is a example list of some jobs I have completed over the past few years.

• internal stud work
• plastering & rendering
• small extension brick work
• total house refurbishments
• fitting velux windows
• all types of pointing

One of the jobs that I am most proud of is my work on the Houses of Parliament roof as a Mastic Specialist.


All of what I have learned was on site. I quickly realised that at collage it was all set up work, in real life nothing is predictable and there are many ways around problems you may come across. Most of my knowledge is as a general builder as I have worked with many trades and quickly learnt from my seniors and on the job time served.
