we start, we stay, we finish...

My name is John Branscombe. I have been in the building industry all my life, and my father and grandfather before me. My brothers and I all completed apprenticeships within the industry, mine being fibrous plastering. Coming from a large family, all qualifying in different trades, I benefited from hands on experience of many skills and also always having family help to call on. Early on I realized that additional qualifications would be useful, successfully studying to become an estimating surveyor.


My son Philip qualified as a Surveyor and also studied a trade, eventually deciding that he preferred life on site he went on to become a successful carpenter, helped by his surveying background. Following 25 years in the industry he has a wide-ranging skill set, including qualifying in damp proof and timber infestation surveying and treatment.


For some considerable time Philip and I have operated a modest business, offering a complete building service, mainly in our local areas. We are hard working and committed to providing a quality service, with minimal stress to our clients. We believe we differ from our competitors in our approach to work. Unlike others in our industry we make appointments we keep, and having started a job do not leave until it is finished – more often than not only taking on one job at a time! Few jobs are too large, none too small – from extension and loft conversions to assembling flat packed furniture or replacing a tap washer.




about us

After the many years I have practiced my trade within my industry, I am now able to enjoy a more relaxed working life, being semi-retired.  I do still, however, enjoy working on a regular basis, and am pleased that my son Philip continues striving to provide the high quality of service and workmanship we have both always worked hard to acheive.


Perhaps you have some work you would like to discuss right now? If so, why not give one of us a call? You will be under no obligation; we will provide advice and an estimate free of charge for your approval prior to any work commencing and also details of our insurance cover and can offer details of previous clients in order for you to discuss our workmanship and service. We hope that we may have the opportunity of working with you..
