Removing of an internal brick wall, repairs to exterior brickwork, render to front of house...

Verified Review

Alan and Jason worked on our property for four days to complete various jobs. Alan provided a written quote before hand and kept in good contact with us regarding start dates. Alan and Jason worked hard over the four days, early start and late finish. They were tidy and it was clear that they took great pride in their work. I found Alan to be very reasonable and honest, he re-quoted me a lower figure when he discovered the main job didn't require the quoted parts. Overall, we highly recommend ARA Carpentry and Building and will be using them again in the future.

The work was carried out on a converted barn. It was carried out to a very high standard and I was very pleased with the result. Alan and Jason were professional throughout and it was a pleasure to have them doing the work for me. I would give them a high recommendation.

Kitchen fitting, custom tables and decorating

Verified Review

We had an old building which we wanted to transform into a welfare area for personnel. One pleasant phone call to ARA and a quick site visit made this possible. We had tight deadlines and budgets but ARA made it there top priority to ensure we had the desired outcome we wanted. We did make a lot of last minute changes but this was no problem for the team who exceeded all expectations and delivered on time with great attention to detail and quality. ARA managed the project with professionalism and we would highly recommend them, we will be using them as our go-to from now on.
