Solo Timber Frame have been vetted and approved by Trading Standards. We are the first and only Timber Frame provider to have achieved this.
It took Solo and our local Trading Standards office almost six months to get to a point where we were offered membership of this scheme. CRB checks, Interviews with previous customers chosen at random by the assessing officer, Checks into our Directors business backgrounds, Close inspection of our systems and contracts and research into any previous complaints (of which there were none) all formed part of the process. In order to maintain our membership we will continue to be monitored.

Solo designed, fabricated and installed the timber frame for our new annexe... building. Thoroughly professional, easy to work with and very competitively priced. The whole team was brilliant and everything was completed on time and on budget. I would not hesitate to recommend them - they were fabulous.read more
We had some work that was needed on one of our properties (an extension).... Originally we were going to work with a local firm to quote on a relatively standard extension. A friend of ours recommended us to Solo Timber Frame. After speaking with Chris there, we decided to get him and his team in. The design and planning phase was very smooth, we were not rushed at all and Chris really helped us to identify the pitfalls as well as things that could help for the future.When it comes to the actual work, the Solo Timber Frame team were very professional, turned up when they said they would (sounds silly but there are many that don't!), project was done on time and around budget (we made changes on the way) and the final product was far better than what we had originally envisioned when we started the initial research.I cannot recommend the team highly enough.read more

Excellent, I have used Solo Timber Frame in the past and would definitely use... them again in the future. Chris and his staff provided an exceptional experience from design to completion of work. They are always professional, courteous, and pay paticular attention to detail. The quality of work was excellent. The job was completed on time. The workers always arrived on time and the job site was always cleaned up at the end of every day. Any problems or concerns were addressed in a timely manner and were followed through until resolved. Overall an excellent experience.read more

“Building a one off house is never an easy task, but you guys made it so much simpler. I'll never build using bricks again and would be delighted to recommend Solo to others.“
Email from Solo Developer Customer, Mr Ellis
A great firm from start to end. Staff are wonderful. The back office is so good. Ask for something and it pings into your email within minutes. Value for money is the best without question. This is my second Self Build and the third will be with Solo as a partner. Solo are with out doubt the gold standard in the Self Build business. No one is better.
