Celebrating 50 years of taking pride in building quality property

Testimonial We would like to thank your team of fellow workers and subcontractors for all the hard work undertaken in major construction alterations to our home in what must have been the worst weather condition imaginable. We are extremely pleased with the final result and of your hard labour which has massively improved the appearance. 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.
