Rebuilding of the chimney from the inside, up through the roof. The construction of a new chimney stack and fire place. In a very old building.
 
Cost: £11000
 

"David and his staff were very trustworthy. They identified the issue regarding the chimney, explaining and showing me why it had to be repaired. They communicated well with regard to the process and any decisions I had to make. They worked safely, cleanly and efficiently with the minimum of fuss. The fire draws beautifully. A Pleasure to work with."

Customer Review
 
General maintenance and building work in and around a Church Building and Church Hall which has included: Creating a Unisex toilet and Disabled toilet in both buildings. Installation of a kitchen. Work on Church Tower.Structural alteration to large double doorway and building multiple storage area. Office refurbishment. Repairs to outside valley gutters and replacement of lead work.

"I have been in charge for many years for organising the maintenance and alterations for a Church and Church Hall. I have found David Walkingshaw to be competitive with other builders and I find he provides a good well finished job. His work is tidy which is important in buildings being used by the public. He provides a full service which includes plumbing, electrics, joinery etc. He provides a full breakdown in his estimate and this has always remained the agreed price. He responds well when contacted."

Other damp-proofing and timber spraying work to cellar of 4D Disabled toilet installation in 4D also. Fitting of wood-burning stove including new hearth,building up fireplace, chimney lining and new cowls etc.Numerous other unplanned,urgent callout jobs over many years.At the start of November 2020 David will be installing a toilet and basin in our downstairs utility room.All building regs work will be completed by David. Very helpful. The outside of our house will be painted at the same time.

"Always very straight forward beginning with a site meeting and discussion as to what we would like to have done and what is to be quoted for.

We always seek David's advice which is always sensible,practical and coherent and we talk through any potential problems.

Start and end dates are also discussed at this time.Then a quote will follow.

We are kept informed during the work process and any issues(if any) dealt with promptly.

Work is to a very high standard and we have never had cause to complain."
