Every good company needs a great Mascot. Her name is Blue and she's often seen in our design studio or asleep at the wheel.
Meet The Boss!!
(Strictly speaking my 7 year old daughter is the boss, then the wife, cat , me, dog...)
My name is Carl Weller and CTW is owned and run by myself. Ive been in this trade for 20 years. I love my job, and I'am passionate about the work I do. If you want good honest advice, I'm your man.
Recently myself and my family have relocated to Cornwall from Hampshire. Living close to the Newquay area. The cornish people and way of life suited my family. I believe family comes 1st. I moved away from a area where CTW Had constant recommendation, very happy customers and a strong reputation. Please see our reports on Checkatrade. I feel that my surf and swim loving family will thank me one day for this exciting move. You will see many of our reports on checkatrade are from the Hampshire area. As we have only just relocated we are already working for new customers. Please look out for checkatrade reports from this area.
I understand to you I'am a stranger. why should you trust CTW? let me give you a few reasons why! most of our work is generated from personnel recommendation. This i think you may agree, is the best one can get. as it means someone out there has liked what we have achieved for them, and taken it upon themselves to tell someone else about CTW. Other ways are the website of which I'am really proud as it is all our own hard work, no gallery shots at all. The other very important channel is Checkatrade.com
Steve – Master Bedroom Fitter
Steve who fits for me is a friend since school. Steve has worked with me for a long time and knows the way I work. He is again a very honest guy.
He’s a master bedroom fitter. Steve has worked for the top bedroom companies. Steves other skills are kitchens and bathrooms. Steve is great with customers and quality tradesmen.
We've played football together most our lives. Steve is more like a 3rd division player and I’m like a cross between Messi and Ronaldo.
I know Steve will treat every job and house he works in with the respect needed. But every 2hrs you need to put some coins in him (or food) otherwise the engine turns off.
Paul – The Man That Can
I went to college myself to serve my Carpentry apprenticeship and Paul served by my side.
Paul was that good he won Gold in the Carpentry Olympics (I know there was one for Carpentry, well just in the UK). Paul left college and worked for Armstrong Builders in Cornwall.
Armstrong are a highly regarded builder in this area and have some very famous clients. Paul decided to leave and set up working for himself. The minute Paul left I recruited him. Paul is very good at bespoke work and has a great eye for detail.
If there’s a tricky job that needs patience and an eye for detail, then Paul’s the man that can!!!
Nathan – Dreams About Kitchens
Nathan!!! Well this boy eats, sleeps and dreams kitchens, flooring and carpentry.
If I need to know what is the best adhesive to use, or best drill on the market, Nathan has read the book and done the course.
He is so particular about everything he does – it has to be done properly. Nathan is a great relaxed guy to be around. He likes his bodybuilding. We all hate working with him in the summer as we all have middle aged bellies and Nathan has a 8 pack!!
Nathan and I met at my wife’s works do as his wife works at the same place. We hit it off straight away.He loves his job (tick), is a polite honest guy (tick) and I knew that night this guy is working for me.
THE MAN THAT DOES IT ALL
Other team members...
The Ex-Army Man
Shaun served as a para in his younger days and is in charge of plastering. I’ve never met someone who works and trains as hard as him. He is a great guy to have around. His finish is amazing and he takes great pride in his work. After a hard days work he is known to go for a run with a back pack on full of bricks!!!
Paul & Chris
We use Paul and Chris from Eclipse (Eclipse Plastering and Decorating on Checkatrade). I've known them both since school and I trust them 100%. Their values are the same as mine. Paul is a Liverpool fan (not good), and Chris supports QPR, even worse! As I’m a Reading fan there are many heated debates.
Taking Pride In Our Work
We treat every kitchen or bathroom like its our own. We are local guys, with young families. We hate mess and people not turning up on time, and those tradesmen who promise and never deliver. Well that's not us. On every job we keep you informed of progress, and tidy up after every day's work. We are not just passionate about our work, we are passionate about the whole process.
We're not just working hard so we can get paid, we're working equally hard for a great checkatrade report. This is very import to us. Future customers will know the truth about us and hopefully give us a chance to quote for them. We don't want a bad report and I’m never happy until you are. The best part of the job is seeing my customers happy with the final finish.
Running a successful company like CTW can be demanding.. So we need surf time!!!!!
If its not surfing or swimming ourselves we are out with our families enjoying everything Cornish.
Last But not Least!!!
CTW are here to give you a great service. To achieve this we need a great team. Hopefully reading the above you will gain a little confidence. It takes a long time to find the right people and suppliers. Many companies use contractors they don’t know much about. So unfortunately many projects are fitted badly by poor tradesmen. This gives the name CONTRACTOR a bad name.
CTW has worked with our guys over and over again to get a good understanding of each other, we are a great team. We have many glowing reports from our customers and keep getting recommended to others.
CTW don’t claim to be the cheapest. If you’re happy to buy your own products and find your own tradesmen, then yes you will save money. But unless you know quality tradesman and work in this industry I expect the whole process will be very stressful. For some people they are prepared for the stress as they need to save money. We totally understand that, thats why we offer supply only to keep the cost down. Not everyone can afford to pay a company like CTW, but if you’re looking for the whole VIP package you’ve come to the right place.
If you would like your dream Kitchen, Bathroom or Bedroom designed, supplied and fitted by a great team, to be project managed from start to finish by CTW, be tidy, polite, make you laugh and leave you with a top class job and finish ?
