  • Concrete base for a greenhoiuse

    We were very happy with Mark's work, he worked around deadlines for the delivery and erection of the greenhouse and was able to make changes where needed. The work required him to return on a number of occasions. And once the greenhouse was erected he laid a very nice path in an around it. He also helped us by fitting our water butts to the downpipes. He seems to be able to lend his hand to many building jobs and we shall definitely be asking him to come back to do some carpentry jobs for us in the future.

  • Retaining wall

    We found Mark through My Builder,
    originally asked Mark for a quote for the retaining wall, but ended up asking him to do alot more.
    He has replaced our lounge floor, also ceiling joists,and perlins in roof, plaster boarded through out the cottage,
    and at last, built a retaining wall at the rear of the property.
    Each task he has undertaken, has been done with care and professionallism.
    Thanks to him, our poor unloved cottage has been turned into a home.

  • Surrounding wall for 3 small ponds

    A recommendable stonemason! Mark came always on time, worked very hard, had hardly any breaks and was very helpful. He was always friendly, polite and appeared happy on the job. Even when we added little things to his to do list he kept in good spirits. The wall Mark built is outstanding and he made it fit nicely around the ponds . His workmanship looks fantastic and he managed to blend the wall in with an existing wall. We were so happy that we gave him another 2 jobs in repairing a wall and laying 2 concrete bases, which he has also finished to a high standard. Mark's prices was also very competitive . Another little thing we noticed was that he was a very tidy tradesman. We have never seen a builder being so clean. After Mark finished his day you did not notice he was actually there besides the work he had done.

  • Partial re-render and refixing lead flashing

    We asked Mr Cater to refit some loose lead flashing and to re-render a couple of pillars. We agreed a date and Mark attended on time.

We are happy with the jobs and would happily give him a reference.
