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

Good patio / repointing work
Customer Service

Chris and his team did a great job of repointing the rear part of our Victorian EOT house, and also of laying sandstone patio slabs in the side return. Communication was prompt and clear when questions & the inevitable unforeseen issues arose. All works were completed professionally and to a high standard. Also some additional small jobs out of the original scope were completed. The guys were here for almost 2 weeks and were no trouble at all.

Chris and his team arrived on site on Monday morning and set up really professionally. They had to work on our flat roof extension with a large glass skylight. They covered this safely and completed the works within 3 days. Repointing looks excellent and the team were always polite and hard working.

Chris and the team re-rendered and decorated three external walls of my house. They were hard working and meticulous in every aspect of their work whilst being very clean and tidy. I am thrilled with the end result.

After the most frustrating, stressful experience with a builder, Chris and his team were a breath of fresh air. They started on time, worked really hard and were only happy when I was happy with the work. The team were really polite and Chris nothing less than always helpful. It was a tricky job but they kept at it wanting only the best outcome. They removed the paint from the brickwork on the front of the house and repointed. They sanded and repainted our fascias. The job over ran but Chris didn’t give up and worked hard to keep on schedule. As a result, my house has been transformed. I feel Chris is someone who can be trusted which is a rare thing in tradesmen these days it would seem. I also think his costs are reasonable. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend CA construction to a friend!

Following a competitive quotation exercise we had the front and back of our Edwardian house repointed and guttering replaced by Chris and Arran and are very pleased with the results. Arran also painted certain timber window frames which needed a refresh. They were punctual, conscientious and kept us and our neighbours informed of progress so no surprises. They were very tidy whilst working. The scaffolders engaged by Chris were similarly experienced and hard working. Chris has clearly built up a good team. Both he and Arran were Covid aware and complied with all requirements from what we saw. I would highly recommend them.

Restoring Victorian bays

Chris and his team did a fantastic job for us on our bay windows. The bays were in a state of disrepair and had also been modified in the past meaning that some original features needed to be reinstated. Chris and his team carried out all the necessary repairs, reinstated the sill and original features, stripped off all the old paintwork, and repainted after preparing the surface diligently. Throughout the project, the team worked hard (even in 35+ degree heat), were very polite, cleaned up very well after themselves and we are extremely happy with the result of all their work. I would definitely recommend Chris and his team to others and would hire them again for further work.

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

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.
