Company Profile

My name is Alex Harrington and I am owner and founder of 'Harrington's Building & Carpentry Services'. 

I have been in the building trade for over 13 years. Having gained valuable experience and skills, I started my company 'Harrington's Building & Carpentry Services' 7 years ago and have built a reputation of a clean, professional and excellent quality service which I am extremely proud to put my name to.

I enjoy and love my work and take maximum pride in every project my company undertake. There's no better achievement than when a client is completely satisfied with a finished project.

I am a fully qualified Carpenter by trade. I have more than 9 years experience in project managing and organising my sites. I have been working on domestic projects from start to finish my whole career and have years of experience in how to plan a job from the start to achieve a perfect finish at the end. Working on domestic projects my whole career I understand the impact building works, (no matter the size) can have on a client’s routine, so my company does its utmost to ensure the client has as little disruption as possible to their daily lives.

I have undertaken over a dozen extensions and numerous loft conversions but still enjoy taking on the smaller jobs from bathrooms and am a specialist in bespoke Kitchens, wardrobes and alcove units.

I have undertaken many high specification projects in the Kensington & Chelsea area as well as St Margaret’s & Twickenham areas, but have worked all around London and the South East. I have experience in 'environmentally friendly building techniques' from Solar panels to SIP's system (Structural Insulated Panels).

I am also a proud member of the Guild of Master Craftsmen since 2008 and have many references.

I have an excellent and trusted team of sub contractors to help my company achieve extreme high standard of work.

Thank you for viewing my profile and look forward to your custom.

Rear extension and internal renovations.
Alex did an excellent job for our new kitchen extension and knocking through into the dining room to create an enlarged kitchen diner. Whenever any obstacles or problems arisen, he dealt with these in a calm manner and communicated the different options and costs with us in a clear and concise manner. All of the tradesmen he used for the project were polite and courteous and did an excellent job. Work was done on time in difficult wintry conditions. I would highly recommend Alex and not hesitate to use him again.

Kitchen extension.
Alex completed a fantastic kitchen extension, created a new patio outside and a new terrace at the back of the garden. Alex provided us with a very detailed, exact estimate at the beginning of the project and was great at communicating the implications of any changes over the following months. Alex and his team were very punctual, efficient, precise and clean in the work, and most importantly taking a lot of pride in their work. They were friendly and fun to have around and became part of the family and were sorely missed by my 3 children when they finished the job. We are thrilled at the results and have already had many comments on the high level of craftsmanship. Alex is a very honest, hard working and professional craftsman. We would highly recommend him for any job big or small.

Computer desk built from plan in a small office.
Alex turned up bang on time. Even working in a small space he kept things constantly tidy and didn't finish until the work was complete (even though this proved a long day). As for the work itself the craftsman ship was spot on and exactly what was planned / asked for.

Custom built, kitchen cupboard unit.
Alex custom built a kitchen cupboard unit, in the space previously occupied by our old boiler. The workmanship was first class, probably the best we have seen. Could not fault it in any way. Alex was polite, punctual and obviously takes a lot of pride in his work. We would definitely use him again and recommend him unreservedly.

Roof terrace built.
Alex and his team did a great job in building our roof terrace. The quality of the work was excellent and the project finished on time. Alex communicated with us throughout the project and we appreciated his input and ideas that contributed to making the roof terrace and the room below better than we initially thought and planned.

Vanity unit and bathroom closet, and wooden storage shelving constructed and fitted.
Alex Harrington Building's and Carpentry Services constructed and fitted furniture (vanity unit and a closet each made of Egger board) to our bathroom, and wooden shelving to a storage room in September 2012. The installation was carried out over two days and also involved the removal of a metal towel rail. We are pleased with the quality of the materials used and the finished product is what we had in mind. Highly recommended for efficiency, care given to the works carried out, behaviour, and on-time and on-budget delivery of what had been agreed.

Knocked through upstairs toilet into bathroom, to create one large bathroom. Full rewire throughout house and removal and plumbing in of new rads, again throughout house. Stripped out carpet of front sitting room, restoring original floorboards to original state. Convert front bedroom into a nursery and cleared remaining two bedrooms ready for sleeping in, laying carpets and decorating.
Alex and his team did an exceptional job restoring and modernising a 1920's semi. We were particularly impressed by his communication skills and time management, delivering on time as promised, working late on only a few occasions thus avoiding any inconvenience. Alex on numerous occasions suggested money saving alternative ideas and practical solutions to the work required. I was particularly impressed by the recess work to the linen cupboard in the bathroom.
