After leaving school in 1977 I carried on in the long family tradition in the building trade, so far traced back to Truelove Vincent a Carpenter born in 1730 and followed my father Ronald Vincent to train as a Carpenter and Joiner and started a Apprenticeship with a local building Company.
After serving my apprenticeship for three years I had gained my Craft and Advanced Craft City and Guilds Certificates in both Carpentry and Joinery.
For the next three years I carried on working for my employer on mainly Government Contracts gaining a variety of extra skills .
In 1983 I decided to leave my employer and become self employed
For the next 5 years I worked on many housing developments and large government Contracts including a year working on building a mock German village built on Salisbury Plain to be used for military training.
In 1989 I moved away from site work and started to trade as Richard Vincent Carpentry and Building.
Over the next few years I was working mainly on Residential properties carrying out general repairs and alterations.
Fitting kitchens as supplied and building Bespoke hand painted kitchens were always in demand as was new Bedrooms and Bathrooms.
I also began building more Garden buildings, Garages, Workshops, Porches, Conservatories Loft Conversions and Extensions.
Throughout the 90’s I continued to build up my business and to the present day most of our work comes from the Extension and Loft Conversion market with the occasional New Build thrown in for good measure.
In 1999 after going through the vetting process I gained membership of the Federation of Master Builders better known as the FMB.
