Celebrating 50 years of taking pride in building quality property

Testimonial McKnight & Son Builders have recently completed some major refurbishment works to the Gents Wash Room area here at Carlisle Golf Club.   I would highly recommend McKnight & Son Builders.  They completely understood the initial brief providing extremely impressive plans and drawings that gave a sleek and classy, yet practical solution.   They were totally professional throughout the works and kept disruption to a minimum. The quality of their work was to an extremely high standard and the job was completed on time. All the trades were courteous, helpful and pleasant to deal with.   Any issues that arose during the work were explained, acknowledged and dealt with promptly.   We would not hesitate to use them again.

McKnight & Son is one of the longest established building firms in Carlisle. Bob McKnight started the firm in 1965 and, through hard work and determination, has built a successful and well respected business based on personal service, attention to detail, and top class workmanship. Bob built his first house in 1972 in the Morton area of the City. At that time the foundations were dug by hand. Over the years many hundreds of homes have been built, all with the same attention to detail and pride in quality workmanship that marks out all McKnight properties.
