Company info

Hi my name's Martin Holmes and have been running my business since October 2016.
Although I had been subcontracting to different companies for year's previous to this.
I've been building 12 year's now and love my job. 
Main reason of starting my business is that I pride myself on customer satisfaction. 
I have high standards on any work that I do and believe in the saying that if I wouldn't be happy with the work then I wouldn't expect any customer to be either. 
I believe in having very good contact with any of my customer's. 
For an example one of my previous customers worked away in London so I kept them up to date by emailing picture's throughout the job. 
I specialise in stonework which I love doing.
Also undertake any building work as well as hard landscaping.
Hope to hear from you soon with a free quotation.
Kind regards Mr Holmes

Stone walls constructed on driveway

Great work from Martin to remove old stone in bank, prepare and construct new restraining walls from stone. Friendly and helpful from the outset, great workmanship throughout. We’d definitely use Martin again for any work we needed…

Martin did an excellent job repairing a ramp that leads up to a drive and also repairing some pointing to my cottage. All work looks professionally done and the areas left very tidy. All in all an excellent job.

Purbeck stone retaining wall

Verified Review

Martin Holmes has done a fantastic job building a purbeck stone retaining wall that supports our garden. Martin is a professional and reliable person who communicated well and diligently checked that the work being carried out met our requirements and satisfaction. A trust worthy and skilled individual who worked around the location constraints and was a pleasure to deal with. We would not hesitate to use him again.

Replace shed roofing plus a couple of astragal bars to windows

Verified Review

Martin's done several jobs for us: he's the first on my list always. He's prompt to come out and quote, no surprises in his invoices, and he does a great job. Highly recommend.

Repair a dry stone wall and add several courses of Ham Stone to make it taller.

Verified Review

We employed Martin Holmes for the third time, to build a long stone wall, a pedestrian gateway and a gravel path. He did a great job as usual despite this winter being challenging to work with lime mortar. All his work is neat and he took care to understand what we wanted.
