Family run for the best experience...
Founded in 2003, Andrew Christopher Builders has grown to become one of Weymouth’s top Builders. Recognition for his efforts to maintain the highest standards of work was acknowledged in 2009 when Andrew was entered into a national competition run by Trustmark to find the UK’s top tradesmen “Finishing in the top 10 from so many strong entries was a real achievement and makes all the hard work worthwhile and for a customer to take the time to recommend us makes it even more special”
Andrew started his building career in 1984, working for a small local company Wey Valley Builders. I was fortunate to have fantastic training as it was only the two of us at that time, I had to learn fast and nothing less than perfect was acceptable. We spent two years building four individual houses near Upwey Wishing Well. They each incorporated individual features such as inglenook fireplaces. Shortly after Gary Walter joined the company and he still works alongside me today. We then moved into restoration work and worked on individual projects all over the County, including work for the Princes Trust. We were fortunate to work on some really old character properties and it gave me my passion for quality work. It is so important to preserve our heritage and pass those skills on to future generations.
A family run business directors Andrew and Lisa Christopher share the day to day responsibility, while son George who joined the business after leaving school in 2011 works on site, after successfully studying and completing his apprenticeship to advanced craft level. Andrew oversees all aspects of project management and liaising with the client on site so he can keep them fully updated with progress and ensure the project meets and hopefully exceeds their expectations. Meanwhile Lisa works in the office dealing with all the administration and financial side of the business and is always available on the end of the phone for additional client support. I think the key to any project is to understand our customers needs and keep them fully informed at each stage. With any project we can find the unexpected and plans may need to adapt and change, but as we have an excellent working relationship with local architects, structural engineers and most importantly the Local Authority Building Control, our customers can be reassured to know we are working hard for them to keep their project on track ,limit delays and most importantly limit any unexpected costs.
Specialising in domestic alterations incorporating extensions, loft conversions and structural alterations, Andrew Christopher Builders offer a complete service. When considering a project such as an extension or loft conversion, it is advisable to make contact early. We can offer initial advise on the viability of your project and can guide you through the various planning stages. It takes a long time from that first conception to gaining full building regulations, so it is advisable to use this time, to take up references and obtain your free estimates.
We have a highly experienced and skilled workforce who have a wealth of knowledge between them built up over a lifetime of working in the industry. They have the ability and skill to complete the task at hand, without fuss, and to the highest standard. I personally introduce any new faces on site to the customer so you always know who is working in your home. We fully understand that working in people’s homes is an intrusion of privacy however we always try to keep the disruption to a minimum and also ensure as clean and as tidy site as is possible.
