Fitted 5 new internal doors and locks including fire door, disposal of old doors and replaced damaged plinth in bathroom.

“I chose Applebee Carpentry because it was a local business, reasonably priced and with good reviews. James liaised with the door supplier which delivered to his workshop in Barnet. He was very courteous and friendly, kept us informed and managed to fit the job in before Christmas by working over the weekend. Thanks James for an excellent job and best wishes for 2019. We highly recommend this company.”

New floorboards on upper floor level and new stair banister rails.

“Excellent standard of work, explained everything well, very tidy and professional. Very pleased with the result. Happy to recommend the company, and would use them again for any future work.”


The creation of a new War Memorial (Roll of Honour) Board.

“James Applebee created a handsome War Memorial in oak for our Church to commemorate the local men who lost their lives in both World Wars. He worked to a simple but dignified design, suggesting features to improve the Board and ensuring that the stain of the wood matched panelling in the Church. We are delighted with it and the quality of James’ work.”


Double story Extension.

“I've used James and his team for awhile now the team that keeps on giving. The work was done to a very high standard inside and out as the walls done all out of face brick on the outer skin looks amazing!! Having experience a lot of building projects I have never met a more honest firm to do business with. Thanks James see you on the next one

Supplying and fitting glass banister.

“James and his team were friendly, helpful and very professional throughout. James clearly has experience fitting glass banisters and has very high standards for making sure the work is done well but also for a very good price. He was happy to help and take on any requests and did the work quickly and to a great standard. I was very happy I chose James to fit the banister and would definitely use him again for future work. Thanks James!”


Complete house refurbishment, plastering, carpentry, kitchen, bathroom.

“This company I have used time and time again with all my properties. All members of their team are very hardworking and know to the pin prick what they have to do. James and the site manager Mic Day were very helpful and explained everything through to completion. They completed a very difficult and complex job with all high end fittings. We are very happy.”

New garage door and replaced windowsill.

“James provided quotes for both of these jobs - and the process was straightforward and he was open and honest discussing the work and the best ways we could proceed. Both jobs were done brilliantly - the garage door was replaced to a high standard so we had no hesitation in recently asking him back to replace a rotten windowsill. He is polite and professional and tidies up after himself, taking away our old door and the old sill. We highly recommend James' work.”
