Andy qualified as a carpenter in 1995 gaining a City & Guilds and NVQ levels 1 & 2 qualifications and has worked in the building trade ever since, picking up lots of new skills along the way, including becoming a locksmith 

Andy is a kind, friendly & approachable person who always has his clients best interests at heart. He likes to work closely with each of his customers to ensure they are completely happy with the work being undertaken.

Andy say's "It can be a horrifying thought that you are having to put your trust into trades people that you may not know, and worst of all, they may be about to pull your home apart." 

The way around that sinking feeling is to employ Lockswood Ltd to do your work for you. Andy couldn’t be further away from the typical ‘cowboy builder' reputation, and his Checkatrade reports and feedback scores from previous customers speaks for itself.

Andy is a perfectionist, so you can be assured that no matter what project is being undertaken, the outstanding quality and high standards that Andy works to will always be achieved.

As well as himself, Andy also expects the very highest standards of workmanship from all of his team, so you can rest assured that you will get the high quality finish you should expect.

Lockswood Ltd are fully insured and have £2m public liability cover.
