Frequently Asked Questions

Which areas of the UK do you cover?

We are based in Cumbria and work in Northern England (Cumbria, Lancashire and Northumberland) and Southern Scotland (Dumfries and Galloway and The Scottish Borders).

I think that my job is too small for your company. What size contracts will you consider?

Askins & Little carry out contracts of all sizes and are happy to provide a quotation for even the most minor repairs. (One of our recent small works contracts came to a grand total of £15.00!)

What makes you different from all the other contractors out there?

Askins & Little only employs skilled tradesmen with experience in working on historic and listed buildings. The traditional training and skills our tradesmen offer help us to provide a high quality and professional service while working sympathetically with the building fabric; this has led to us being commended by numerous conservation architects and individuals.
