About Tony Burgess Builder and property maintenance

We have recently relocated to cornwall and “starting afresh” I have been working in the trade since leaving school in 1983 and have been self employed for 30yrs now. I have done pretty much everything associated with building houses. My qualification is in brickwork but also learnt plastering on site. I do like variety so carpentry is another strong area, I also do this as a hobby and have all the tools needed.

Since living here I have been renovating our home so have examples to show if needed. Before moving here I completely renovated 4 properties mostly by myself with some help from electricians and heating engineers.

I have never needed to advertise before as word of mouth gave me more than enough work, however I am not known here much yet. I will upload photos of past jobs soon, don’t have too many as I wasn’t expecting to move away and start over.

List of jobs done in the last few decades:-
Setting out for new build and extensions,
Mini digger driving, Drains, concreting footing etc, paving, block paving, fencing, brick and block walls, some flint stonework, repointing, roofing, fit windows doors conservatorys and facias & gutters, first & second fix carpentry, some bespoke carpentry such as built in cupboards & matching a painted kitchen unit, kitchen fitting, bathroom refits inc minor plumbing, stud walls, plasterboarding, rendering, plastering, screeding, coving, tiling, flooring, decorating, preparation work for electrical installions (chasing and back box fitting) etc etc.
