About Us

Northants Carpentry was formed in 2007 by friends & now business partners Chris Thurlow & Andy Penny. Both Chris & Andy have worked as carpenters in the construction industry for over 25 years along the way learning valuable knowledge about many aspects of construction.

Northants Carpentry was initial formed to provide carpentry services on a subcontracting basis to larger clients and also offer carpentry & building services to residential clients. Over the years the number of carpenters that we have working for us may have grown but our core business model has remained the same with us offering our services from small residential projects to much larger developments. With backgrounds in New Build & Restoration carpentry we are well based to provide quality tradesmen to all types of project. Our tradesmen carry CSCS cards with some of our restoration carpenters carrying gold CSCS cards & emergency first aid.

Due to the varying nature of the construction industry at NC Carpentry we do not pigeon hole ourselves into one specific area preferring to offer our services to a wide and varied client base. We are able to offer carpenters to small building projects or too multi million pound developments.

Our aim is to provide quality carpentry services and believe that customer satisfaction is the number one factor in repeat business from our clients.
