Our Work

Property Boarding

We were called to a property in Stoke on Trent following the eviction of squatters by West Midlands Police. We attended the property and secured all ground floor openings as instructed.


‘We have used CGT for a few jobs now which included building door frames, hanging doors, fitting door handles, skirting and architrave. The work was all done to the highest of standard and we were consulted throughout the works. The team were reliable and always arrived when they said they would. They were clean and tidy as they worked so I could still be at home in a clean space. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them.'
