WHAT'S NEW?

Until now, timber and joinery repairs were divided between three main product/service categories; timber framers (tf), fine joinery (jo) and cabinet makers (cb). Two new categories have now been added:

Joinery workshops: This category has been added to clarify the distinction between in situ joinery repairs and joinery workshop services where items are made or repaired off-site.

Timber repairs: This category includes the repair of structural timbers and other elements of woodwork that cannot be described as fine joinery, such as timber roof, floor and wall members.

And there's one more, albeit completely unrelated: Excavations and French
drains
.This new category includes all drainage-related groundwork, and provides an important pool of talent where penetrating damp is concerned.
