About Us

Ours is a well-established business – we started in 1992 – and we offer a wide range of joinery, carpentry and related services to businesses, retail outlets and private customers in South Wales and South-west England. All of our work is fully guaranteed, and we pride ourselves on the quality of everything that we do.
 

About Michael Philpott


“I wanted to be a carpenter for as long as I can remember, and I got my first set of proper tools when I was about 13 years old. I served my time as an apprentice, and completed the full-time Carpentry and Joinery Diploma course at Ystrad Mynach College. Wood is a wonderful material to work with, and from the time I established MC Carpentry & Joinery, I’ve always made quality products – because that’s what wood deserves.”
 

About our qualifications


We only work with qualified and insured contractors. Michael Philpott, owner of MC Carpentry & Joinery, is gold-standard certificated under the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS). This is reserved for Advanced Craft/Supervisory craftsmen with relevant formal training. We’re also on the Gas Safe Register, and we are a member of the NIC/EIC Approved Contractor scheme, for electrical contractors who complete electrical installations to BS7671. 
 

About our environmental values


Wood is a renewable resource, but it needs to be used with care. We only use timber from renewable sources, and wherever possible we buy from local suppliers to reduce pollution from transportation. We are very careful to avoid waste, and where we do have offcuts, we either reuse them ensure they are properly recycled. We also sort onsite waste into different types (eg, wood, plastics, metals, mortar) and recycle that appropriately.
 

About our safety standards


We work to the highest safety standards, and we ensure that our sites are properly protected and controlled at all times. We aim to reduce the risks to ourselves, our suppliers and our customers from machinery or from dust inhalation. As a result, we have an accident-free record and an unblemished reputation for site safety.
