David Huddart Joinery and Building logo Expert building contractors

During the period of 2006 to 2007 we carried out a large amount of grant work for various clients under the Gateshead Council "Up Your Street" project. This consisted of a wide range of property maintenance from decorative railings & doors to major structural work to the front of some properties. Below are a few testimonials from our happy customers.

I am writing to those building contractors who carried out works as part of the Up Your Street Improvement Scheme in Bensham and Saltwell, Gateshead. Everyone has worked hard to fit in with the extremely tight funding deadlines and to produce a d good end result.


We have received some very good feedback both from the property owners who participated in the scheme and from the public in general about the appearance of the improved properties. Property owners have also commented on the good quality of the customer service provided by contractors. I am pleased to pass the information on to you and have enclosed one of our Your Area Your News newsletters, which headlines the scheme.


I would like to take the opportunity to thank you and everyone on your team who has helped make up the Up Your Street Scheme such a success. We look forward to working with you again in the future.

Dear David,


I would like to thank you and your team for your professional service from start to finish in repairing my home.


I will highly recommend your building services to anyone looking for a friendly service with high quality.

David Huddart was approached by me with a view to becoming the main contractor in the refurbishment of St Cuthbert’s Marley Hill. I had seen the quality of his work in a previous job and believed he would be the right man for our job – and was absolutely right.

From the word “go” David tackled the job with skill and enthusiasm. He was always willing to adapt, and to suggest ways of making the job better, and this is reflected all over the site.


David’s team also overcame great physical difficulties – digging a 25 metre trench by hand across a churchyard, (it was too wet to get a digger on) and then tackling collapsed drains and tree roots when building the ramp. Everything was done with a smile and without even breaking a step.

The quality of David’s work is also seen in the kitchen area where wood and laminate are blended together in perfect harmony.


The end result is magnificent and has been admired by everyone who has visited.


Probably the best moment of all was at our opening celebration. David, his team, and their families were there. The “boys” stood ten feet tall as the Bishop of Durham added his tribute to their skill and dedication – something which was richly deserved, bringing the whole project to a fitting conclusion.


David walked on to the site as a contractor and left as a friend whose impact on a “tired” Victorian church will be admired for years by the many generations who will visit St Cuthbert’s.
