About A R Carpenters,

I am Alan, the proud founder of A R Carpenters,
As a professional carpenter I have spent the last 28 years in the building trade and am well known in my local area for my reliability, fantastic customer service and high quality of work.

I cover all aspects of carpentry and building work so have the experience of building bespoke fitted furniture, bathrooms and kitchens to larger renovation projects.

Why choose me
Having a single point of contacts takes the headache away from dealing with multiple contacts, you will always speak to the expert and I ensure that all my customers are well informed of progress, our planned schedule and what to expect each day.

Accurate pricing
My experience and wide range of contacts allow me to provide accurate pricing for work. I prefer visiting you to gain an understanding of your intended project. I then take time to write everything up and provide you with a full, detailed pricing structure. All my quotations are intended to be fully transparent and allow you to understand exactly what to expect so we are both on the same page.

Work carried out
My wide range of contacts and experience allow me to have the knowledge and access to materials to accommodate a wide range of projects that you have in mind.
There is nothing we can’t do, from interior fitted cabinets and kitchens, to full construction projects and external projects. Please see my gallery for more examples, or get in touch and I can discuss how I can help.

We can now install glass (10 mm clear toughened) within balustrades.

Samples – Computer renderings / Drawings

For bespoke projects and large designs I am able to generate and provide computer renderings and drawings to give you an idea of how the final product will look. At that stage is very easy for us to make alterations and modify the product to suit you.

I use various trusted suppliers, known for using quality materials and can obtain samples / direct you to various showrooms to see the materials yourself. On occasions we have been able to obtain rare and specific materials quested by customers.

Aftercare and keeping you informed

Thought construction I will keep you informed of the progress, what to expect e.g. how long skips, scaffolding machinery will be there.
I often walk round projects and keep you updated, this allows for easy modifications or rectifications to be made throughout the construction process. I am also proud to be known for always having a tidy work site to minimise disruption to yourself and ensure a safe working environment.

‘Our name is our guarantee’
My customers recommend me to friends and return for future projects as they know my name is my guarantee. The service and care does not stop at the end of the project, I am always happy to return to previous projects. Components, appliances and some work projects are supplied with their usual manufacturer guarantee for the few instances they are required to be used.

My phone is always on so I look forward to hearing about your planned projects and discussing how I can help turn them into a reality.
