Carpenters in Henley-on-Thames and Newbury
| Why Work with Carpentry and Building Contractors?

Are you researching options for kitchen extensions or loft conversions in Henley-on-Thames? Are you looking at full house extensions or new builds in Newbury? No matter how you plan to improve or develop your home, there are two specialist trades that will make up the bulk of the work: building contractors and carpenters. Of course, other tradespeople like electricians, plumbers and heating engineers also play vital roles in creating new spaces, but their time on site is far less when compared with the former.

Dedicated Carpentry Contractors

At MW Carpentry Ltd, we operate as both building and carpentry contractors. By specialising in both fields, we can manage your large-scale construction project from start to finish.

What’s more, our onsite teams also includes NICEIC and Gas Safe Registered professionals, where needed. This allows us to cover every requirement to the highest possible standards.

But what are the tangible benefits of working with a company which provides services as both carpentry specialists and builders? In this blog, we examine the advantages.

The Benefits of Combined Building and Carpentry Specialists

A Single Contractor

Many aspects come together to make large building projects a success. However, it’s typically the quality of the project management that ensures everything runs to a smooth conclusion on time and within budget.

When you hire MW Carpentry Ltd, be it for kitchen extensions, loft conversions, house extensions or new builds, you have a single contractor overseeing every phase of work. This means we draw up and implement a Schedule of Works. We manage the various stages so work runs efficiently, minimising the chances of delays and disruption.

From your perspective, our management means you don’t need to spend time researching and hiring various contractors yourself, and then making sure they arrive when they say they will.

Best of all, for the duration of your project in Henley-on-Thames, Newbury or the wider Berkshire area, you only ever have one point of contact. If you have any concerns or issues, all you need to do is call us.

As you would expect from reputable carpenters and building contractors, we are always on hand to pick up your call. And you don’t need to worry about chasing up progress reports from multiple contractors as they come and go – we communicate regularly, so you’re never in the dark about your project.

Quick Turnaround

Because we manage your project from the outset, we ensure that each phase of work runs smoothly into the next. Our team has decades of experience in the industry. We use this know-how to structure and organise works with the absolute minimum in downtime.

If you hire individual carpenters and building contractors, your job is more likely to stall at certain phases. This is because you’re exposed to other people’s projects. Your builders may finish work to a point, but your carpenter might still be working on another job which has overrun. In this situation, all you can do is wait.

As an in-house team of building and carpentry contractors, our personnel are always ready to complete tasks as and when needed. These smooth transitions enable us to consistently meet deadlines throughout your project.


Hiring a single contractor is also a great way to keep costs down. Because we cover all the services needed to complete kitchen extensions, other house extensions, loft conversions and new builds, we can offer a more favourable rate than individual contractors here and there.

Our effective management also reduces the likelihood of overspending. We use our expertise to accurately calculate all the materials we need from the start. And because delays and disruption are far less likely, there’s no need to pay for additional labour.
