Welcome to my Checkatrade page. I am Rob McLeod and I have been a joiner for over 30 years. I trained with a company in Harrogate and studied at York Technical College. I passed my City & Guilds and then went on to do my advanced joinery which I passed with distinctions and credits. I then worked for a medium sized company in Harrogate for 7 years where I gained a lot of my site experience, however, I decided to set up my own company. To begin I fitted kitchens for Magnet and MFI for about 3 years at the same time as being self-employed; I sourced the work via advertising and good recommendations from existing customers. Eventually I stopped working for Magnet and carried on with my own personal work.
I am DBS cleared and do work in nursing homes and schools.
My work consists of small, simple jobs through to large house builds from start to finish. I have a group of trusted professionals I can bring in for larger jobs. I work with a team of individual self-employed people who are all experts in their own field of work.
My work includes:
- Reducing doors after carpet fitting
- Supply & fitting of new internal and external doors
- Made to measure fitted bedroom furniture and flat pack furniture
- Complete design of new kitchens from start to finish with all different trades covered
- Alteration of full bathrooms including showers and toilets etc (I organise all of this but with appropriate, qualified trades covering tiling, plumbing, gas etc)
As you can see from my photographs, I also undertake larger jobs such as the conversion of an old coach house in Harrogate changing it into 2 superb dwellings.
We do loft conversions and house extensions either to your plans or our architects.
Over the last few years I have been involved in lots of glass work internally and externally on kitchen splashbacks and stair balustrades.
