Why us?


Shakespeare Carpentry was founded in 2008 by the founder Alister Shakespeare. Previously Alister worked for a company undertaking high quality loft conversions and extensions. During the 7 years he was able to gain a vast amount of experience from all aspects of 1st and 2nd fix carpentry, which he is able to apply to Shakespeare Carpentry. Alister completed the City & Guilds NVQ Level 2 and 3 in Wood Occupation through an apprenticeship building new houses on local building sites.  

With his experience and qualifications Alister decided to take the leap and create Shakespeare Carpentry - a business he runs solely on his own. Unlike a lot of trades from the moment you contact Shakespeare Carpentry, meet for a quote and have the work undertaken, this is all undertaken by Alister and not subcontracted out to other people you have not met. Alister works hard to ensure all work is undertaken to an excellent standard and to all customers expectations. This is why he felt it was important to join a scheme to show the satisfaction of Shakespeare Carpentry. He joined Checkatrade.com and to date has over 290 feedback cards which are available to be viewed on the Checkatrade.com website just search Shakespeare Carpentry. Since 2008, Alister has been able to build up a good base of customers from new, existing and recommends. 

Shakespeare Carpentry is based in Eastleigh and generally work in a 10 mile radius but can cover other areas.
