Your experience of Moore & Stone Carpentry & Building Ltd depends entirely on our people – not just the quality of their work, but how they work and the way they treat you.

Everyone in our team is selected as much for their interpersonal and communication skills as for their construction skills. If you have any questions while we are working on site we can immediately explain clearly to you what is going on.

Within our team you will find people who have spent decades perfecting their craft and others nearer the beginning of their careers who we have trained. We choose who will be working on your construction project by matching skills to the requirements of your project.

Our lead team members:

Matt Stone is co-founder of the company and from a family of construction workers. A qualified carpenter, you will find Matt doing ‘hands-on’ work for 2 days a week, the rest of the time he is office based sourcing materials and scoping quantity requirements and costings. He is sometimes accompanied by his black Labrador, Eddie.

Westley Moore co-founded the company with Matt. He too is a carpenter – a trade he has pursued since leaving school – and from a family of builders. Most days you’ll find Wes on site where he is very hands-on. He is excellent at fixing things and is currently restoring the old cottage where he lives.

Reed Bailey joined in 2006 and served his apprenticeship with us. As a finishing carpenter he installs doors and windows and makes all those final adjustments and fillings in preparation for the decorators. His patience and skill make him ideally suited to completing the fiddly bits at the end of a construction project. Being originally from London, he follows West Ham’s football team.

Rebecca Neville heads up the office and is in charge of making sure materials and man power get to site efficiently; you may also have her pricing your job. Rebecca will usually answer the phone in the office if you call.
