About G.F. CHASE

I started in the building industry with my family business F.E. CHASE & SON LTD in 1995 at the age of 16. I completed a apprenticeship / NVQ level 3 here and at Southampton city college.
I normally like to carry out carpentry and joinery works so my main work is New kitchens , new doors , new skirtings and architraves, new floors , Staircases and ballustrades and all other associated carpentry works.
I am also capable of carrying out larger projects like extensions and property refurbishment with a good selection of reliable trustworthy quality tradesmen.

Latest reviews

  • Removal of stud walling around old fitted wardrobe

    Gavin, Damian and co did a great job over 3 days taking out an old fitted wardrobe and associated walling and then re plastering and making good the surrounding area. The team also took on various smaller jobs I needed doing - really happy with the results and everyone involved were a pleasure to have in the house. I would definitely use Gavin and the team again and highly recommend to others.

  • Garage conversion and kitchen reconfiguration

    I would not hesitate to recommend Gavin. When we were looking for companies to quote for the work, Gavin arrived promptly, took the time to understand exactly what we wanted and provided a detailed quotation. Our plans changed a number of times and, on each occasion, Gavin set out how this would reduce / increase the original quote. The final bill was exactly as outlined. At every stage of the work, Gavin advised us of what would be happening and who to expect to turn up each day. All of the guys who worked on the project - carpenter, plumber, electrician, plasterer etc - worked to an extremely high standard and were all friendly, polite and helpful. The house was left tidy at the end of each day (or as tidy as possible, bearing in mind walls were being removed) and rubbish taken away. The job was finished quickly and we are delighted with the result. There were a couple of small snags on the way but Gavin dealt with these quickly. Overall, an excellent company to work with.

  • Converting garage,bathroom and remodelling living space

    We have had a super experience with Gavin and his team. Our job was quite a mid match- garage renovation, knocking walls to make open plan, new kitchen, new flooring, new en-suite, painting and decorating. They came to our rescue when another builder let us down. From the first day we met him he was honest and up front about the job and he sent on a thorough and detailed quotation with a very reasonable payment plan which meant that it was easy for us to keep track of our budget at all stages. There was no hidden extras with Gavin and when he had quoted for something we no longer needed he took that cost off another part of the job. His contact throughout has been regular and any text or email I sent he got back to me very quickly. Our job changed a bit throughout the process and the team were so efficient at getting what we needed done in a very quick time frame. The other great thing about Gavin is that he can project manage everything for you- kitchens, flooring, carpets, painting and decorating. There’s nothing that him and his team cannot do. They are an honest and respectful building company and I couldn’t recommend this team enough.
