About

Hi I am a bricklayer by trade and have a wide range of experience in building and restoration.

I went to college for three years and then worked in London for a big stone restoration company on big projects like Kings cross train station for 2years and Harrods to name a few.

I then travelled and used my skills in Australia while I was there.

I have a passion for keeping heritage buildings using old methods in lime and old bricks.

I cover pointing and brick repairs in old methods as well.

New brickwork is undertaken at a very high standard and aim to give the client the look they are wanting for their projects.

I cover most general building projects and confident in what I do.

If you would like to discuss any of your projects with me, please give me a call.

Many thanks,
Chris

Repointed my patio with great care
Customer Service
Quality
Value
I have a lovely Indian sandstone patio, with each slab individually cut to shape. But after 20 years, the original pointing was shot, and some of the slabs were wobbly. A few years back I used some of the brush in stuff you can get in Wickes. It was expensive, and did not last. I realised I needed a professional. I got a quote from one trader, but it was for brush in. Then I found Chris, who confirmed that he did proper mortar. The quote was the same. He and Arran did it very well. The work was "below their pay grade", in that they are more skilled than this job, but they were keen to do it, and I was keen to have them do it. They completed the work (much) earlier than expected - it was a small job, and they had a spare slot at the last moment. As others have said, they are very nice people. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Chris carried out repointing to the front bay window and the result is excellent. The work has been carried out to a very high standard, the team worked hard and was completed on time. The site was cleaned and all rubbish removed at the end of the job. Would highly recommend.

Very pleased with the work Chris & Arran did on the front of our Victorian terraced property: repointing, repairing & the stonework facias & some additional maintenance work. The job was very competitively priced and all the work was completed to a high standard. The guys were hard working & conscientious, and did a great job clearing up at the end. Communication throughout was excellent. All in all, very happy with my choice using CA Building & Restoration, and would definitely use their services again. Highly recommended.

Brick plinth road name sign with plaque and flint inset
Customer Service
Quality
Value
I am very pleased with the work done by CA Building. Chris and his men, working to drawings, put in foundations and built a unique road name brick plinth sign, using lime mortar, emulating local 19th century brickwork. The plinth incorporated an engraved slate name plate set in mortar with knapped flint insets. The bricks included angled plinth bricks and a capping of antique hand made clayware. Everything was completed to our agreed price and payment schedule. Chris listened and was easy to deal with. Thank you Chris.

Chris did a great job and we are really pleased with the outcome, particularly the fence which Chris suggested as the best option. The work was completed to a high standard and the area was left clear with all rubbish removed. We would definitely use Chris again and recommend him to others. Thanks again!

Steer clear

Chris replaced yard fencing for me and installed a shed base. The timber supplied was of good quality and a good price. The fencing work started late and was not finished on time, there were various delays that were not helpful. A year later I am having to pay a contractor to make good (as best as possible) the building work that Chris did last year. Chris did not make the fences level at the top, the posts were loose and some not straight, the fences its self was not straight. There was no ongoing communication or aftercare. I have given 1 star for value as the work has to be revisited at an additional cost a year latter! Ignore the temping price - there are far better contractors out there.

I am truly shocked by this review as I have not received any information via email or telephone about any problems with any fencing I completed last year, If a problem arises with any of my work I would like to be contacted to make sure that I am at fault and then put it right. Please contact me so we can go through the issues you have as I have no idea and move forward.
Replacing Stone Wall on Driveway with Earth Bank
CA Building have done a wonderful job replacing my mother’s stone wall on her driveway. It was complex as it involved an Earth bank, a steep driveway which required some tarmac and reshaping, and dealing with an underground spring in thick clay soil. Chris and his team did a wonderful job on schedule, in the agreed timeline, and cost. He immediately highlighted a problem with the underground spring which we worked with the water company and thus was dealt with. My elderly mother found Chris and his team to be delightful and misses their company very much. Thank you so much to Chris and the team. We are very proud of our new stone wall which has been beautifully finished.

On contacting Chris, he made early inspection of the property and kept to the quote. The repointing made to the full front of my property, and to other areas as needed, has been carried to a very high standard. I am delighted with the results. Chris and his team were prompt, polite, courteous and professional, carrying out detailed work efficiently. They were also very careful to completely tidy up, clean, and remove all debris etc. It was a pleasure to have Chris and his team on site. Highly Recommend.

New Patio in back garden - Top Job

Chris and his team worked hard clearing an area in the back garden, demolishing old shed and installing a brand new patio at the back of the garden. The whole job ran smoothly from start to finish, with great communication throughout. They were punctual, polite & courteous and everything was left spotless at the end and job completed in just 5 days. We are delighted with our new patio. I have used Chris before for re-pointing work and constructing a new porch and his work has always been of a high standard. I would definitely highly recommend Chris for his professionalism, work ethic and quality craftsmanship.

Chris did an excellent job building a new front garden wall for us so had no hesitation asking him to come back and repoint and repaint the front of our house. Chris and his team were very thorough, hardworking and professional and we're really happy with the end result. Highly recommended.
