Celebrating 50 years of taking pride in building quality property

Testimonial Firstly can I complement you on the aptitude and professionalism of your lads. They have done a fantastic job and although mine was probably a small job compared to a lot of the work you do they showed respect, care and attention throughout and ensured work was carried out 'right'. Special thanks to Ian who kept me informed at all times about what was happening when and what to expect. Also thanks to Mike the plumber. Over and above this i ordered a new toilet, shower screen and radiator. I also needed the services of your drain men (sorry for my ignorance but i am not sure of their correct title) who came and unblocked the drain from my downstairs toilet. I would also like to thank you for putting up with us swapping the original date for the works when our personal circumstances became difficult and then pushing our work through later on. This was very much appreciated. Testimonial

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.
