Country Life Top 100 - 2024 Logo


Eight generations of building excellence since 1798.

Everything Moulding does is driven by the latest building standards and techniques, underpinned with the passion of our dedicated team and the profound knowledge of construction and maintenance that comes from many generations of practice.

The Team

We actively employ over 100 staff, and are one of the few specialist companies with the scale, skills and experience to deliver very highest of standards in residential building.

As a family business, every project that the firm undertakes is personally supervised by one of the Directors. Whatever the job, if you employ Moulding, you get the Moulding touch.


Training & Apprenticeships

Traditional building skills are passed on from generation to generation. Good apprenticeships are vitally important to the development of key skilled staff. So too is the ability of existing craftsmen to work with and pass on these skills to the younger generation.

Moulding are very lucky to have recruited several employees following their fathers into the company. This reinforces the family culture and loyalty that underpins our philosophy. Traditional building skills are sadly in decline due to the economic pressures of mass-produced building. We are continually looking to develop talent from an early age to continue the reputation of our most valuable resource.

Work for Moulding

The strength and reputation of our company relies entirely on the calibre of our staff. We are always looking out for trained and experienced people to help reinforce our teams. Equally, we are also one of the few building companies to actively promote apprenticeship schemes and are allied to the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB).


We are always pleased to hear when our customers are delighted or our partners have recommended us.

I have just left Chandlers House with my work now complete bar the odd cushion, and I felt very sad at saying goodbye to the Moulding’s team. Phil has been remarkable and such a joy to work with. Josh and Tom have been brilliant with the picture hanging and general sorting of bits and bobs that made all the difference to my work. The outside lads have battled and continue to battle with the elements with more cheerfulness than I would have thought possible. They have all been a delight to work with and I am so grateful for all they have done to help me.

I write to thank you and your team for the excellent work done for us at All Saints Church. We have enjoyed the extra space and facilities the work created, and received many favourable comments from visitors.

I have to tell you that everyone from Moulding, without exception, has been outstanding. Nothing has been too much trouble; every change in plan has been greeted with understanding (even enthusiasm!) and even minor crises have been dealt with calmly, professionally and effectively. David, Kieron and James have led the team brilliantly – Michael, Trevor and Phil are exceptional craftsmen whose skills we have wondered at, and whose advice we have relied on.

Once again, so many thanks for confounding everybody’s predictions of how much of a strain dealing with builders can be!

I would like to thank you and everyone else involved for the high standard of work, good communication and a very professionally executed job.  The Family are very pleased with the finished result, we will certainly keep you in mind for future projects.

Thank you very much for your completion of Jill’s Steel beam and new Bay Window and Porch.

You made the little Project easy for Jill and the result is most attractive with a high quality of workmanship. It was a pleasure to work with Bill and his guys.

Thank you for the work you have done and for fitting into our tight timetable. The concert and Harvest Festival last weekend were a great success and an excellent show-case for the new lighting, which was well received.

A belated note to say thank you for sorting out the final postscript to a job well done. We are still delighted with it all, with both the bathroom and kitchen getting compliments from visitors – I have name checked Mouldings on more than one occasion. And it is undoubtedly nice to have it all done now we will be spending so much time at home. Please say thank you to everyone involved on our job, particularly Paul who was a pleasure to have around.

I just wanted to say how pleased I was with Bill Dables and all his team who carried out the repairs following my recent leak.  All the lads that worked on the job were polite, courteous and hardworking with special mention to Andy, Kevin, Paul and the young lad for the extra detail and attention they paid to the decorating, cleaning up each evening and generally doing a really superb job.

All your staff are a credit to the company, it is so difficult these days to find people who actually care about the work they do and so it’s very refreshing to find this in Mouldings staff.

A big thank you to them all for looking after me and my house so well.

We are extremely happy with the build! I want to thank you and everyone who’s worked on our house for the amazing job that’s been done. The whole process from start to finish has been enjoyable and I wish we could do it all again! The guys were brilliant.

I rushed off to London on Monday otherwise I would have emailed earlier to say what a marvellous job Mouldings did here last week. Your chaps are all so nice and helpful and they have done a beautiful job. Thank you.

No doubt you will be hearing from us again soon!
