Extensive damp repairs
Customer Service

While decorating my living room a damp problem was uncovered which had resulted in a large section of the timber floor rotting. Shane responded quickly, had a quote for repairs with me the very next morning, and work started soon after. Throughout the work Shane and all the team were fantastic to deal with. I was really impressed with their reliability, workmanship and willingness to go the extra mile. The entire floor was replaced, an old fireplace stripped out, new lintel fitted and walls re-rendered. As the work progressed it became apparent the damp was more extensive than initially thought and had spread to the adjacent room. Shane and Charlotte were excellent in communicating this information. They kept me updated by email and phone calls and discussed options and costs openly. At no point did I feel railroaded into making a decision. On top of the damp repairs Shane also organised an electrician to update the wiring, for repairs to the main roof/chimney, and took on converting a dilapidated flat bay window to a pitched slated roof which is now a smart feature of the house. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend SH Carpentry & Construction!

Replacement of fascia on dormer window

Shane and his colleague Craig were both very polite, professional and friendly whilst also doing a great job. I felt very comfortable with them carrying out work on the front of our house as it was clear that they are both very competent and knowledgeable in carpentry. I would definitely use them again for any carpentry jobs. Possibly not the cheapest but price reflected the quality. If you want someone to do a professional carpentry job then this is a good company to use.

I found this company through Which? Trusted Traders and have had them replace a dormer window that had fallen out and also repair a leaky roof. Shane and his team have been brilliant and we are really pleased with the work. It’s very difficult to find a builder/carpenter who is reliable but Shane has been. Pleasant, helpful, courteous and the standard of work is exceptional. I would highly recommend them to people and I am asking them to quote for further work that we need doing.

Fantastic extension

Shane and his team were renovating a big back room and adding an extension. The back room had three slightly different floors, having initially been two rooms that had had an existing extension, so they had to dig up the whole thing and lay a concrete floor that would align with the hallway corridor. They had to do this while building a further extension in bad weather, during the lockdown, and under time pressure so that parquet floor could be laid by specialists. And it was done perfectly! The job had endless details - a new kitchen, painting, replumbing, rewiring, a new garden wall, a new patio, some change of design as we went along, and SH Carpentry & Construction were always patient, attentive and accommodating; when things went wrong or we changed our minds, they sorted it out straightaway. And the result is really lovely. We've got a big family room that looks fabulous and is much warmer than it used to be. We love being in it. Thanks Shane, Charlotte, Pete, and the gang!

Renovation of hallway and stairs in 300 year old farmhouse

Shane was recommended to us for our hallway renovation by Daniel Rokins, who was building a bespoke walnut staircase to suit our 300-year-old farmhouse. We were absolutely delighted with Shane and his entire team. The project ended up expanding exponentially due to rotting floorboards, overlying rotting joists, due to lack of ventilation bricks, and requiring rerouting of plumbing and gas pipework, all of which were addressed calmly, competently, and with endless patience and good humour from Shane and his team. The new staircase required unique structural work, also designed and constructed by Daniel, Shane and team. The wooden flooring was laid beautifully with artisan finishes and details worthy of the true craftsmen they are. The carpentry by Craig, James, and Shane, has been absolutely top quality throughout the job, including sympathetic door renovations and cabinet-making. The plasterwork was outstanding, unlike anything we have ever seen, and the painting and decorating have also been unequalled in quality. We are extremely pleased with the outcome of the job, and can't recommend Shane, Charlotte and the entire SHC&C team highly enough!

Outstanding management service and works

We are a national charity based in London and have a number of bungalows on one site used by our beneficiaries in Oxfordshire. We have used Shane and Charlotte for a number of years to manage the site maintenance. Charlotte provides an outstanding management service and with the residents, is caring and understanding of their individual situations when considering the works required. She reacts appropriately in emergency situations and I have full trust in her. Shane and the team always carry out the works required to a very high standard and have never let me down. I highly recommend them to anyone requiring this type of service.

Shane and Barry did a great job of boarding out our loft. They were friendly, professional and fast. They even fitted the loft. ladder as an added bonus and hoovered up. We have a busy home with kids, dog etc. My Daughter even shot them with Nerf guns while they passed through the house, so highly recommend them as "family-friendly". Cannot recommend enough!

Top Notch firm, Shane and his team were all very helpful, polite, diligent. We had a disasterous leak in a porch which caused a lot of damage.

We met Shane and his team by happy accident but would not hesitate in recommending him. Luckily for us a replacement window fitter who was measuring up for replacement windows for the cottage came when torrential rain had flooded the rear porch causing quite a lot of damage, recommended him as a good and reliable workman. Shane arrived the following day, assessed the situation, was very helpful and stepped in at short notice to help us resolve the immediate problem. Following on from mending and reroofing the porch. it was discovered that all the windows of both cottages did not have any lintels on the outer walls. Shane and his team agreed to stay on and worked for three weeks replacing missing outer lintels on the two adjoining cottages windows which we let to tenants. They were very punctual and polite, tidy, professional. Shane kept us appraised of the costings, gave us regular progress reports. good job all round.

Shane and his team converted our garage into a playroom and converted the loft space into a bedroom. The team have done an amazing job and we couldn’t be happier with the end result. We were very impressed with how helpful everyone at SHCC was during our project and any questions were answered quickly. I would highly recommend SHCC.

Shane and his team built a new car port for us. We were very impressed by how responsive the team were to our questions, how well they conducted themselves on site, the timeliness with which the job was done and the quality of the work. It was an extremely good experience and I would not hesitate to recommend this company. Matthew Batstone
