About MB Carpentry & Joinery

Before I left college I worked part time labouring for a local carpentry and building company gaining experience in renovation and restoration work. My carpentry career really began when my college tutor offered me a job after noticing my potential and work ethic. The main concept of the role was constructing high specification, bespoke timber framed buildings in a workshop environment and then installing them on domestic and commercial sites all over the country. This gave me vast experience in timber framed structures, kitchen and bathroom fitting, plasterboarding and dry lining, fitting aluminium and solid oak bi fold doors, fitting and glazing windows, skirting and architraves, facias and soffits, real wood and laminate flooring, decking, weatherproofing, ground works, guttering and cedar cladding. I worked for this company for 5 years as it became more successful and grew. The last 2 years of this role I was trusted to lead a small team ensuring that productivity, quality workmanship and customer satisfaction was maintained. This job gave me all of the practical experience, confidence and customer service skills I needed to become a reliable self-employed tradesman.

Since being self-employed MB Carpentry has become a well established company. I have built a reputation on superb attention to detail and quality workmanship by working closely with my clients, listening to their requirements and offering my friendly advice and creative flare to produce a desirable end product.

Using both Traditional and Contemporary designs and techniques, I specialise in Bespoke Timber Framed structures; I have designed and built superb quality solid oak porches, treehouses, children's playhouses, garden rooms used for offices, gyms and entertaining ect. Ideal for extra space required without the need for planning permission. General carpentry, joinery, bathroom / ensuite and kitchen refurbishments, tiling, handyman services in and around the home.

My workshop is based in Welshpool however, I service clients in and around the Shropshire area.

I look forward to working with you!
