Our philosophy. Keep it simple and affordable!

Things are easier to manage when kept simple, so there's no flashy gimmicks, high overheads, or running costs which would all inevitably be passed onto you by a larger contractor. Estimates and quotes will not be based on the size of house you live in, or what kind of car you have parked in the driveway, but please expect to pay the going rate for a days labour and to cover the cost of materials.

Our aim on every single contract is honesty, consistency, reliability and always attempting to go that extra mile and convert a first time client into a repeat customer by specialising in attention to detail and providing quality Ames taping and jointing at a fair price.

One advantage of using a small contractor is that you get the personal touch on a one to one basis. All our business leads come from existing clients, word of mouth and internet referrals - so you won't see us advertise anywhere else.

Our guarantee and quality of service.

Please see What you should expect from a taping contractor for more information.

For added peace of mind, all our work receives a walkthrough on completion ensuring you are completely happy with the finished product before settlement is requested.

We believe no plasterboard should be untouchable or too difficult to tape.

As long as it is hung securely and not broken, then it's possible. Unusual and awkward plasterboard is our speciality and any drywall, whatever shape or size will be finished to your specifications. We are happy to work alongside your own tradesmen and any enquiries for tenders in all types of construction will be considered.

We are small enough to be responsive to your individual requirements, yet big enough to provide a reliable service on larger building site contracts. Automatic taping tools and drywall sanders are used as they remove most harmful particles from the jobsite so you can be assured that your job will be dealt with in a manner compliant with current health and safety regulations.

Construction skills and finishing trades available to you.

We don't pretend to be a jack of all trades but really know our own and are happy to help if you require other specialist trades. These optional services can be provided on a sub contractor basis that we use from our network of quality tradesmen we have come to know and trust over the years.
