" C Morgan & Son Ltd are exceptionally good at what they offer, which is a high quality, professional and complete building service.  This is clearly a company where the customer matters and the finished product is exceptional.  Our project involved an extension and complete refurbishment of a Victorian house and the work done was outstanding in every respect.  I cannot recommend them highly enough".         Mr. C.


"We have used Glen and his team for two significant projects on our home and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. From initiation of both projects, we received detailed and accurate estimates that showed Glen had fully assessed the brief and sourced the most appropriate materials and suppliers.  We have been particularly impressed with the craftsmanship in the stonework which is a close match to the original building.  The team is very professional, friendly and clearly passionate about doing a great job".         Mr. & Mrs. S.

This project consisted of the complete refurbishment of a 1890s detached Victorian property, which included a substantial extension, new drainage and a sewage treatment system.  The specification was to an extremely high standard. We took over the project management of the job after two months, once we had gained the trust of the clients.

This property used to be a coach house and had been extended several times over the years. Initially we had the contract to convert part of the garage area to a study and to add a W.C. but this also led to re-furbishing three of the ground floor rooms. About a year later we returned to build a first floor extension, and to alter and re-furbish six of the other rooms. At the same time we also carried out extensive landscaping works.
