We are delighted with their work, which was delivered on schedule, on budget and to a high standard. We were kept fully appraised of cost issues which were completely transparent from day one. Their approach to this created trust between us and not a penny of outlay was unexpected – to their professional credit. We were impressed with their work ethic. Some of the construction was carried out during very bad weather but these guys rarely even stopped for a break. The site contained a large amount of items from a recent house move, this could have caused problems but the Altree Joinery Ltd staff worked around the issue without a word of complaint for which we were grateful.
Work like this takes time and we were concerned about the need to have workers with us most every day for weeks on end. We need not have been worried. The Altree Joinery Ltd staff are really easy to get along with, friendly, approachable and always in good humour. We have used builders in the past and can say with confidence that Altree Joinery Ltd were the best firm we have employed. We have further work to do and they are now our first choice.

We would like to thank Sean, Brian and all the team at Altree Joinery Ltd for creating a fabulous new home for us, on time and within budget. As we were going to be on site every day it was important for us to find a team of builders we could work with and as soon as we met Altree Joinery Ltd we felt we had found them. It became obvious very quickly that we had made the right choice. Their reliability, attention to detail and willingness to work in all weathers was second to none. We have worked with number of builders over the years and few have the communication and organisation skills of Altree Joinery Ltd. A fantastic job by a team of fantastic builders who we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. Thanks again.
John and Fiona
The team from Altree Joinery Ltd truly were a pleasure to work with whilst our extension was getting sorted. We were wanting something that would double as a music room and therefore had slightly different spec to a normal build. Sean and his team were always happy to help us research and source materials which suited our needs. All the work was carried out efficiently, with great attention to detail, and there were no delays or waiting around – they stuck with the job and got it done. The finished result has exceeded our expectations in every way. Over and above that, they were great fun to have around, considerate to our needs as well as focused on the job, and we’ll be very happy to use them again. Thanks a million

Iain and Margaret Cormack
We would like to say thank you to Altree Joinery Ltd. We are so pleased with the extension you built on our house. The work was carried out on schedule right throughout, the different trades appeared when you said they would and trades men were all so considerate and helpful. The job was finished on time and within budget. If we decide to do any more building work we will certainly come to Altree Joinery Ltd.

Altree Joinery Ltd have done an excellent job on giving Alavik Lodge & Cottage a complete makeover. A transformation that included a new patio door, additional VELUX window and new guttering, but most importantly a stunning new wrap-around decking veranda and terrace, together with a beautiful timber and steel tension wire balustrade, have ensured that our guests can enjoy a lighter, brighter holiday and not only have a great place to sit out, but a much improved view.
Sean and Brian’s joinery skills are second to none and, working with a great attention to detail, they completed our project on time and within budget. One of the most important things on any building project is really good communication and Altree Joinery Ltd always delivered this perfectly. From the start of our relationship, Sean always replied to calls and emails promptly. He provided a detailed quote and, once work commenced, he and his team always arrived on time and cheerfully worked in all weathers to finish the job to deadline.
Any issues or queries about the job which required input or decisions from us were communicated quickly and a few extras and small changes to the original plan which we asked for were dealt with easily – nothing was too much trouble. My husband and I are very happy we chose Altree Joinery Ltd for this project. We are thrilled with the result and would definitely recommend them to others. Sean and Brian – it has been really great working with you and your team. Thank you!

Sean and Brian and their team carried out a complete restoration of our traditional croft house. This involved stripping the interior of the building right back to the stone and, in effect, building a completely new house within the original walls. All of the work was carried out on time, on budget and to a very high standard. There were several challenges along the way but all problems were overcome and the end result is fantastic. We would happily recommend Altree Joinery Ltd to anyone considering such a restoration as the standard of joinery and attention to detail is of a very high standard.

We are really pleased with our new extension – it’s light and bright and opens up the ground floor of our old croft house. We were very impressed by the standard of workmanship and attention to detail, (in particular the installation of the wood burning stove, which works really efficiently, and the lovely spacious bathroom), and the pleasant, courteous and friendly manner displayed by everyone who worked on the project. If there were any queries or problems, Sean promptly dealt with them. We were promised that the work would be completed by Christmas – and it was! Many thanks to everyone at Altree Joinery Ltd – a job very well done, guys!
Altree Joinery Ltd built an extension on my house over the winter of 2014. I would like to thank them for their good will and hard work; they stuck to the job throughout an unusually inclement winter and completed all the work to a standard which received high praise from an independent chartered surveyor. At all stages of the project, I found the entire Altree Joinery Ltd team to be helpful and responsive and am happy to recommend them to prospective clients.
Altree Joinery Ltd were highly recommended to us by good friends. We were not disappointed. We were impressed by their professionalism at every stage of the build, from the efficiency and transparency in pricing to the care in the detail right up to the very end of the build. Sean & Brian were such pleasant and easy people to work with and we very quickly had complete faith in their advice and quality of workmanship. We class ourselves as very fortunate to have had the services of Altree Joinery Ltd. We have been delighted to be able to recommend them, unreservedly to other friends.

We would like to say how very pleased we are with the finished extension. The standard of workmanship of your own people and your subcontractors has been first class and meticulous. In addition they have all been very considerate and polite and have only consumed limited amounts of tea and coffee!
Given the absolutely foul weather throughout the project we have been impressed by your team’s resourcefulness and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Altree Joinery Ltd to other people.

We had a self-catering cabin built for us by Altree Joinery. Like most clients we were naturally a bit apprehensive as the start date approached, but we needn’t have worried as from commencement to completion of build we were kept fully informed almost on a daily basis as to what would be happening, what sub-contractors would be on site and on which days we could expect deliveries of different materials.
Sean and his team are not afraid to get their sleeves rolled up and get on with it, regardless of weather with tea-breaks appearing to be determined by stages of work rather than the clock! A couple of things that became obvious from day one was that at the end of each day all waste material was bagged and removed from site when they had a trailer load resulting in a clean tidy site and when the team arrived in the morning they never left the site until finishing time other than Sean trying to find phone signal. Altree Joinery are a very professional company who take pride in their work,work to a very high standard as did the sub-contractors employed on this build, very approachable and quick to respond to any concerns, day or night. Our build was completed on time, on budget and hassle free. We would certainly not hesitate to use them for any building work in the future.

Trust and excellent communication is what you need when you are living in England and having a house built in Skye. Sean and his team at Altree Joinery soon delivered on both these vital elements. Photographs of progress were emailed to us weekly, web links to materials sent and every detail of the build discussed. This enabled us to visualise progress between visits.
The finished house exceeded our expectations; we felt at home straight away. Our home was delivered on time and on budget. Attention was paid to every detail including a bespoke, hand-made staircase and other joinery work.
The work ethic of the Altree team and their chosen specialist sub-contractors were second to none; working tirelessly in all the weather Skye has to offer.
We would recommend Altree Joinery Ltd to anyone who would like a first class build.
