E5 Carpentry

  • Built in cupboards/wardrobe into attic room

    Beautiful fitted wardrobes in our bedroom - quick and easily done, on the more expensive side of quotes but worth it

  • Fitted wardrobe and bookshelf

    I would have no hesitation in using Calum and his team again. From the very first moment I talked through my ideas through to completion, Calum provided a very personal and flexible service combined with a 'high end' finish. Calum clearly cares about his work! We are very pleased with the finished products!! - Thanks Calum!

  • 3 built-in Bookcases and 2 built-in wardrobes

  • Shelving needed

    Callum and his team did a great job for us, easy to work with and responded in just the right way to our concerns, thoughtful and reacted fast. Always kept us informed about delays caused by suppliers. Would definitely use him again and everything was as he said and agreed, no problems whatsoever and lovely to work with, thanks.

  • Bedroom wardrobes

    Calum did an excellent job on my bedroom wardrobes, he gave some good advice on sizing and structure.

  • Shelving for Alcove

    We had some floating alcove shelves fitted by Calum. Really good finish in super quick time at a competitive price. Nice chap too.
    I would definitely recommend him.

  • Fitted wardrobes

    E5 created beautiful bespoke fitted wardrobes for our bedrooms, exactly to our spec and the design fitted perfectly with the vision I had in my mind.

    The level of craftmanship, materials and customer service we received from E5 was excellent. They did the job quickly and were really nice to deal with.
    I would 100% recommend them and will definately be booking them for further jobs that we need doing.

  • Build floating shelves in X4 alcoves

    Calum did a fab job and it still looks good!

  • Bookshelves plus other bits

    Calum did a good job fitting some new shelves & cupboards. All the work was neatly done, and well finished off. Calum made sure that all the details were thought through and discussed in advance - e.g. lining up to fit neatly around skirting boards, access to plug sockets, exactly where handles were to be placed etc. Worked flexibly to fit around other work that we were having done that caused delays on our side, and Calum let us know when he would deliver. Overall, a good job and we're happy with the result.

  • Floating Shelves Required

    Friendly, fast, and professional service from Calum. Our wooden, floating shelves look fantastic. Thank you.

  • floating shelves in livingroom

    Calum and Oscar did a stupendous job putting up some floating shelves in our living room. Not only do the shelves look great (Calum gave me great advice on the thickness of the shelves), but everything was done to a top standard with no mess at all and for a reasonable price. And it was all done so quickly: we spoke for first time on a Thursday and by Tuesday, the job was done. Would not hesitate in recommending them and we will definitely be using them again.

  • Building shelves on 3 walls and building new table legs

    Calum did a great job creating bespoke floating shelves in two rooms and customising a dining table. There were some issues with hollow walls etc that he dealt with creatively and the finished project looks fantastic.

  • Fitted bookcase

    Calum and his team have done an amazing job in our living room.
    They built a bookcase that fit an entirely wall.
    We designed the bookcase and then, he help us to make it technically possible.
    He totally understood your project and give us some very good ideas/solutions.
    His decorator made an excellent finish that looks perfect
    The work was done to a very high standard with a reasonable price.
    I would definitively recommend E5 Carpentry!

  • Bookshelves along a 12ft wall

    All good. Thanks Calum

  • Bespoke shelving for kitchen/ diner

    Calum is very easy to work with, polite and did a great job. Would use again and recommend to others. Thanks!

  • Fix wooden front door

    Great job! Will definitely hire again in the future. Thanks

  • hang 4 oak internal doors and fit handles

    Callum came to quote for the job of buying and hanging 4 pine door and fitting brass handles, his was not the cheapest quote but he seemed want to do a good job. I was away when the job was done, but on my return I found that the door stops were too large and quite badly fitted, with large gaps in the corners and they seemed rushed. Doors were of good quality pine, but the smaller brass hinges he fitted left large gaps in the door frame which did not look great. Problems with the door frame not being square (Victorian house) meant there was a large gap under one door. I expressed my dis-satisfaction and immediately Callum offered to fix everything. He fitted smaller door stops as i requested and took much more care with fitting them this time, I agreed to leave the hinges as is, as they were good quality, but the frames would need work later which I agreed to. He fitted a draught excluder in the living room, and offered to stain the doors as compensation. I am happy with the job now, but I do feel that you should consult on all the details before starting and check the work as it is being done. Callum did a fine job, but these problems could have been avoided if everything had been discussed before and I had been there before they fitted the unnecessarily large door stops which I said I didn't want or need. His workmanship was good and Callum was determined to make everything right as quickly as possible. Consult and establish everything first is the lesson.

  • Fitted wardrobes in two bedrooms.

    Excellent. Efficient, good quality work at a great price.

  • Convert half-wall into breakfast-bar with cabinet

    The guys did an amazing job. Very happy with both the quality and the time it took to complete.

  • Build small wooden raised breakfast bar

    I hired Calum partly due to the positive feedback on here and was not disappointed. The job was completed to an incredibly high quality of workmanship, efficiently and on time. Calum helped suggest materials of a really high quality which helped deliver exactly what I'd imagined.

    I'd have no hesitation in recommending Calum to a friend.

  • Fixing of battens, blinds, curtain rails

    Callum did a great job; he got us to a design we loved and then executed quickly and without fuss to a very high standard and with an excellent finish.

  • Build and install floating shelves

    Calum and his team did a great job building us three sets of floating shelves and put in long hours to ensure a good fit against uneven walls in our flat. The shelves are sturdy and well built and look really smart. Very happy with the job from a friendly team.

  • Professional carpentry work

  • shelving and desk

    Calum and his team did a really fantastic job of our shelves, desk and storage cupboards. He was communicative, thorough in his planning and was really accommodating when we needed to change a few our requirements. He worked very neatly, never left a mess, was respectful of our home and finished the project to a really high standard. I would definitely recommend his services and I'm hoping he will complete a few more bespoke projects for us.

  • Front door fitting and decoration

    Calum and Oscar have the patience of saints! Work to fit my new front door was already delayed due to rain and they came back on their bank holiday to be faced with the most wonky and warped door frame in London. They worked tirelessly to get the door weatherproof in one day. They were very friendly and kept the work contained and cleared up as they went along. The door was painted the next morning. Once the door was finished I was cheeky and asked if the frame could be spruced up as well. I was very fortunate that this could be squeezed in at very short notice the next day. The new door looks fantastic and very secure, the frame also looks 10 times better. Calum will definitely be in my address book for future use!

  • 2 metre boiler cupboard and 2 new windows

    Callum turned up the same day as asking to quote on the job. The whole process from the consultation (where E5 were extremely insightful on the best way to do the job) to installation was managed very well with great communication and flexible timing. The quality of the work and the installation was fantastic, with plenty of challenges thrown up by the less than straight Victorian walls. All in all great work and would recommend E5 for anyone looking for work done

  • Sanding floor - Paint walls - Bespoke wardrobe

    Calum and his team have done a good job for us for a very competitive price. Nice people to work with, reliable and honest. The timeline was quite strict and they finished all the work in time as agreed. We had to travel abroad so they worked unsupervised for a week and all the detailling was good when we came back on site. We provided drawings for the wardrobe and they built everything very precisely. The joiney work and the fixing/sanding of the floor was done by Calum personally at a very high quality standard. The painting job (walls and the woodwork) was instead outsourced to other two decorators that actually did not work at the same standard. Still an ok job for level of the price we paid, but not as accurate as Calum's work.
    So I would suggest E5 Carpentry to find a more skilled decorator to create a true oustanding team. Overall we are happy and would use E5 Carpentry again.

  • Install skirting, doorframe, making a shelf E2

  • Fit external door

  • Fitted Wardrobe

  • Repair hole in the wall and box in pipework in kitchen

  • Plastering bathroom ceiling 3ft by 6ft and wall tiling

    Excellent!
    Calum completed his work to a very high standard – plastering and tiling in a bathroom. Before and throughout the work he kept me up to date with timings and progress. He provided a very good recommendation on the finishing of the work and was flexible. I would highly recommend.

  • Table and benches and cupboard door

    The guys did a great job, they are both affable and professional, creating a great end product and for a competitive price, i would definitely recommend them.

  • Redecorate Bedroom

  • Plaster and possibly re-render small area in bathroom

    Work completed quickly at our convenience and for a very reasonable price. Would recommend.

  • built in bookcases and shelves

    Calum and his team did an amazing job. Fitting really neat alcove book-cases in our lounge and bedroom, discreet floating shelves, re-panelling our bath and building a beautiful shoe rack under the stairs. This was not an easy job in our old wonky victorian house but they somehow managed to make everything fit perfectly with a craftsmanship and attention to detail that I didn't think was possible.

    They were very easy going and friendly throughout the whole process, turning up bang on time every day and working really hard through each day to keep the job on time, always keeping us informed of progress and taking care to be clean and tidy and respectful of our space.

    I'd thoroughly recommend Calum and his team.

  • Hang up two mirrors on wall

    Callum did a great job for me - will defiantely hire again.

  • Plaster, Electrical outlet and Radiator relocation

    Calum did an excellent job for us and I would be more than happy recommending him to anyone. He is an honest, hard-working guy who was easy to get a long with. His work was to a very high standard and I will definitely have him return to do additional work for me in the future.

  • Plastering in kitchen and other (about 6-7m square)

    Really friendly and great work, will definitely be using again.

    Calum and his team were charming and efficient and did a lovely job. I can highly recommend!

  • Stippled ceiling to smooth

    Friendly, and Timely.
    Came round on time, and kept me informed re timings etc.
    Nice job, will use again.

  • Solid wood front door with frame, locks and furniture

    Calum's work was fantastic and proved to me that if I'd gone for the DIY option, I'd probably have ended up with an insecure door or a hospital trip! Who knew fitting a front door would take so much skill?! Anyway, I'll be sure to hire this man of all trades again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend his outstanding skill and chirpy attitude to anyone.

    There will be no messing about or disappointment, just good honest work.
    Highly recommended.

    Thank you Calum, I wish you all the very best with your business.
    I'll call again.......

  • Painting living / dining room

    Callum was great, would recommend.

  • Bedroom Ceiling needs replacing

    Calum came with his small team to rebuild my bedroom ceiling - a nightmare of a job as this was the original Edwardian plasterwork. He did the most amazing job in record time. The finished product was beautiful - clean lines, beautiful coving and a lovely paint job. The icing on the cake was that he brought in cleaners - and he left me with as little mess and dust as possible because they all mopped, dusted and hoovered up the mess. A job very well done by a very nice chap who turns up when he says he will and does a good old fashioned reliable job. Thanks Calum.

  • Hang 3 floating shelves

    I found Calum’s details on this website after struggling with a couple of DIY jobs myself for months. I had been trying to hang really big mirrors and attach book shelves to the walls but had made a complete mess of it.
    I spoke to him one day and he came over the next. It was a Saturday morning to fit in with my schedule. He knew exactly how to fix my mistakes and then re-do it all correctly. It looks great, so glad I got in touch with him.
    Couldn’t recommend him highly enough. He’s a really lovely guy, did a fantastic job and I would definitely use him in the future.

I would happy use Calum's services again.

  • Water damage to bathroom & bedroom ceilings

    All of my recent dealings with Calum have been positive: from his original site visit and assessment of the work required to repair the water damage to our ceilings (which in fact was less than I had been led to believe) through to his work in sealing and redecorating the ceilings. Throughout this process he has been informative, honest, punctual and reliable - and the standard of his work and attention to detail was fantastic.

    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Calum and will certainly be keeping his card handy for future use.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    I found them hard working and good time keepers. They have plastered and decorated several rooms, re-roofed a shed, re-built a wall and fitted several kitchen units. The quality of their work is of a high standard and what I really liked about them was if they felt something wasn't going to work they would tell me and then work out how it would work. They quoted me a daily rate for a number of days and finished a day early and it this day and age that never happends so I would be happy to recommend them to any of my friends.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    They completed their work on time and on budget and the result was top quality. Their plastering work is excellent as is the general finish that they produce, and the price was very reasonable.
