 Large Extension & Renovation - completion Dec 2021

Mason Knight undertook a 6 month project to renovate and extend our bungalow. Throughout the project, David and the team were a pleasure to work with. The quality of their workmanship was excellent, and at every stage they came up with ideas for improvements and solutions to any problems we encountered on the way. The whole team were reliable, knowledgeable,  professional and a pleasure to have onsite. We're delighted with what they've achieved and are enjoying living in our 'new home'.

Large Glazed Extension - completion June 2021 

Having gone through architect's designs and planning, perhaps the most difficult decision is to find a builder who can turn the ideas into reality. Having looked in many places we eventually found David Melling's company on the internet, and he was one of those rare builders who did what he said he would. We found him to be a great leader of his team, always ready to come up with solutions and careful to use matching materials to make our extension blend in with the house, for example he spent a long time sourcing the house ridge tiles which really helped to achive the look we wanted. We are delighted with the new extension and very pleased and relieved to have used David and his team to build it. Aaron the team leader did most of the slating and stone work and deserved particular credit for his skill in ensuring it all matched the original on the house. I would have no hesitation in recommending David and his team, and thank him for all his work on our project.

 Tanking to basement of cottage

' I had my basement and porch tanked using the Sovereign certified system. Both rooms had significant damp problems. The job was carried out with real care and attention to detail. Mason  Knight Construction Ltd were completely reliable, punctual and efficient. I was kept fully informed at each stage of the process. Since the tanking was completed both rooms are dry and the walls free of damp and I am delighted with the result.'

'We cannot recommend Mason Knight highly enough. From their first visit to discuss our plans to extend, adding another bedroom and en-suite upstairs and creating a new kitchen downstairs, everything went smoothly from submitting the plans and receiving planning permission, right to the end of the project. They kept to schedule and were always cheerful whatever the weather!
The work entailed (apart from actually building the extension) - demolishing the garage, knocking through walls upstairs and down, moving a 10’ high wall and pillar one metre and rebuilding to create wider entrance. Creating a garden door (christened Davegate as the door was David’s suggestion), installing new en-suite upstairs and new facilities in downstairs cloakroom, plus fitted kitchen and flooring, with all the plumbing and electrics the job required.
Mason Knight, with the help of their trusty team of excellent time-served craftsmen, did it all with the minimum of fuss or mess.
Thanks guys!! I also learnt to make builders’ tea and discovered Smooth Radio!'

'We would recommend David Melling to anyone thinking of having work done. Totally professional and helpful, as we were new to the area. He designed a new ensuite for our loft space, and designed our new double storey extension. A first class job. All work carried out on time and to a very high standard. We would be pleased to show anyone thinking of using Mason Knight to inspect the work done' -

Extension & Renovation

 Havenwood Front     Havenwood Terrace  

'Mason Knight undertook the modernisation & extension of our recently purchased property in Grange over Sands. The work started at the beginning of May 2013 following our approval of detailed estimates for the proposed work. Briefly the work consisted of remodelling internal spaces for new kitchen & the 2 new bathrooms. The house required new central heating & considerable upgrading of the electrics. All this work was carried out by, or supervised by, Mason Knight. At the same time they drew up plans & submitted for approval a scheme to extend the property at the front. This scheme was approved by the local authority  & they started the work  in mid summer.   All work has now been successfully completed on budget and within the expected time frame.    Throughout the project Mason Knight were extremely professional & very much aware of the importance of minimising the stress to the client in what can be a very difficult time. We have no hesitation in  recommending this firm for domestic building projects'.  

Martin & Pamela Gregory, November 2013


Internal Renovation 

 "We asked David Melling to quote to remove a huge Victorian stone wall between our kitchen and conservatory extension, insert steel beams (at a complicated angle) and make good the whole new room. We chose his estimate after appreciating his quiet confidence, his professionalism in all his recommendations, and his helpful flexibility.  He also priced the job appropriately. We were delighted in our choice; his work was exemplary, beautifully finished, to time and extremely cleanly done, and he even took photos to leave with us, obviously enjoying the task and and rightly proud of his work. We cannot recommend this company more highly." -

Garage conversion  June 2012

 'We contracted David at Mason Knight to convert out garage into a warm studio space. From the start David conducted himself with the upmost professionalism being very responsive to our questions and providing insights into the job at hand. The work involved converting the roof from a prefabricated configuration into a traditional high beam ceiling, including insulation and finishing. This was a very challenging procedure but David's experience shone though. All in all the work was carried out quickly and to an extremely high standard. Highly recommended A+++++' -
