Concept Carpentry & Building

Professional home improvements from concept to completion

About Us

Based in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire and have been trading in the local area since 1999

Paul Leach, the owner, trained as a carpenter at Oakland’s College, St Albans while serving an apprenticeship for a local builder for 7 years. During this time Paul was involved in renovations, refurbishments, extensions and new builds, learning many aspects of other building trades on-site and the importance of quality of work, customer service and time management.  We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and we offer a friendly, efficient service. We feel this is a testament to the quality of our workmanship and the professionalism of our company generating a lot of work through repeat custom and recommendations.

Concept Carpentry & Building are experienced professionals that undertake all forms of carpentry and building work, large or small. Our mission is to provide a professional service from initial contact through to completion, aiming to give honest advice, competitive prices and high-quality finish on time. We have many happy clients who are happy to give references and also recommend us to their friends and family.

What Our Customers Say

Paul did a great job: gave an estimate when he said he would, the work started and finished on time and was carried out with the minimum of fuss. The doors look great and I have already recommended him to a friend.

Mr I Gillespie, Rickmansworth

I was recommended Paul by a neighbour who had a kitchen refit, thus I could see his quality of work at first-hand. From the first contact of requesting a quote through to job completion, he was extremely professional and considerate of my circumstances, two young children in the household, plus the kitchen and hallway flooring had to be relaid due to two water pipes leaking. As he had done such a splendid job, we asked Paul to lay laminate flooring down on the downstairs boards. Work was completed in the proposed and costed timeframe.

Mr M Lawrence, Abbots Langley

I thoroughly recommend Concept Carpentry for kitchen installations. Paul did an impeccable job with great workmanship all around – there is absolutely nothing that I’m not happy with. He left the work area very neat every evening which minimised the disruption caused by such a major job. And on top of all that, both himself and the subcontractor for the electrical work were a pleasure to have working in the house, very friendly and good-humoured. All in all a very good value service and would use Concept Carpentry again without hesitation if I move house and need more work done!

Ms Y Smith, Uxbridge

Highly recommended. High level of workmanship, minimal disruption and professional throughout. Also, very competitive price considering the high standard of work.

M Atkins, Watford

Cannot recommend this tradesman highly enough.

My kitchen re-furb had to go back to the brickwork so it was quite a major task.

He was prompt, efficient, diligent, clean and organised. All the electrics, plastering, flooring, tiling, installation of new units, oven, sink, plumbing, etc. were carried out to a high standard and I love my kitchen. Further advice was available if required regarding colours, suitability, etc. Viewing can be arranged because I am so pleased with my new kitchen that I am happy to show it off.

Mrs K Stronach, Abbots Langley

We would like to thank you for the excellent work you have done and how remarkably tidy you have been we will recommend you to all our friends Thanks again.

Mr & Mrs Bowden, Harefield

K Smith Rickmansworth

Fitted a kitchen for us and various other jobs around the house. High standard and quality finish.

M Gravatt Abbots Langley

Based on Which Local reviews, I contacted Paul to do a number of carpentry jobs around the house. He eased all of the bedroom doors as I was having new carpets fitted. He eased a couple of cupboard doors on his own initiative that I forgot to mention to him. Paul also built a shelving/clothes-hanging unit for my son’s built-in cupboard and made some excellent suggestions. He also hung a new door and repaired another door. I found the quality of Paul‘s work to be excellent and he is neat and tidy.

As I had a list of things to be done, I asked Paul to quote his daily rate. He came in early in the morning as promised and worked through the day to get the job done. His price is fair in view of his work ethic.

I will be calling on Paul again.

Mr C Kapadia, Amersham

We’ve used Concept Carpentry & Building many times and have never been anything other than delighted by their excellent work. Paul in particular is thoughtful and very considerate in his work, and always finds a way to accommodate his customer’s needs – and changes of mind!! Can’t recommend highly enough.

R Thackery, Chorleywood

I highly recommend Concept Carpentry & Building to all my family and friends. Paul did a great job as usual, nothing is ever too much, even if the design changes halfway through! Fantastic craftsmanship and so tidy during and after the project. I couldn’t be happier with my handmade media wall. It’s such a focal point and is perfect. Thank you so much.

J Boniface Watford

Paul did an amazing job replacing the supporting beam between my kitchen and dining room and fitting a new kitchen, clean, tidy, always on time and genuinely takes pride in his work.
