Our Services Explained
Quality timber can add significant value to your property, as it is highly sought after as a sustainable, premium material that’s preferable to synthetic materials.
Bespoke Joinery & Furniture –Simply put, joinery refers to any task involving the joining of wood. It could be the careful fitting of skirting board, a cupboard, windows – any timber fixture you can think of. While some of these are seen as possible DIY jobs, the benefits of the professional finish offered by a qualified, experienced carpenter cannot be underestimated. We also build beautiful bespoke furniture that can help you save space, and add significant value to your property.
Roof Construction –We specialise in cut and pitch roof construction, a bespoke service that’s suitable for new-build homes, garages, conversions and renovations. Unlike truss roof construction, cut and pitch doesn’t require a crane, making it simpler and ultimately cheaper. We carry it out on-site, and it provides an exceptional standard of roof that will last for many years to come.
Timber & Oak Frame Buildings –A G Kerr Carpentry excels in timber frame building, specifically construction of oak frame buildings. These can function as extensions, standalone garages, outhouses or as part of a renovation/conversion. The advantages offered by, for example, oak framed buildings over brick and stone buildings include: ease of installation, thermal efficiency, durability and ease of maintenance.
Renovations, Conversions & Extensions –We offer all three of the home improvement holy trinity. Renovations can bring dated properties into the present, or completely reimagine your existing interior design. Conversions can turn under-utilised space, including barns and lofts, into liveable, value adding space. Extensions are a fantastic way to invest in your home and get more room without the inconvenience of moving.
Windows, Doors, Fascias & Soffits – There are many properties in areas like East Grinstead, Haywards Heath, Horsham, Reigate and Oxted which simply do not suit uPVC windows, doors, fascias and soffits; synthetic materials look out of place and ugly when fitted on traditional homes. That’s why carpentry companies like our own still offer high quality timber fixtures which are functional, long-lasting and low maintenance.
