About

JC Building Services is a rural building company based on the edge of The Lake District. We undertake all aspects of building projects, working on traditional buildings, new build houses and extensions. We have developed a reputation for providing first class work and offering informed and honest guidance during our construction projects. Working closely with clients from initial design and budget discussions constantly throughout a project, advising and potentially making alterations to layouts, materials, aesthetics so the finished project is exactly what our clients want. 

We specialise in working on older properties, including necessary repair work, sympathetic extension, barn conversions, or fine renovation work to listed buildings.

 

Let me explain why I believe we are a great company to work with.

  • My team and I have a genuine passion for the building trade and take great pride in our work.

  • We regularly work with a close group of sub-contractors and professionals.

  • We source and process our own timber products for structural and architectural work.

  • We have our own plant and machinery, making a project more cost effective than using expensive hire firms.

 

We are passionate about traditional building techniques and trades, encouraging the use of appropriate, locally sourced and sustainable materials for our building projects. We have an understanding of different building design across historic periods.

 

We work in partnership with a team of structural engineers to find solutions to the most challenging situations. We consider aesthetics, materials, budget and site geography to agree a successful approach to make sure our clients are completely happy. We also employ tried and trusted contractors for plumbing and electrical systems allowing us to call on their expertise whenever necessary. Using the same contractors keeps costs down and means projects run more smoothly.

We offer a complete building service and our skills allow us to undertake all aspects of building works.

Listed below are the most common building works we undertake:

  • Groundworks, structural retaining works and drainage 

  • Hard / soft landscaping

  • All types of modern wall construction

  • All types of modern rendering and plastering

  • Stonework and dry stone walling

We can do much, much more.  Please contact me to talk about projects that don’t naturally fall in to this list.
