Gerard Taylor Ltd is a local family-run business that employs a strong, tight-knit team of local and fully qualified tradesmen, including builders, roofers, plasterers, and joiners.

Gerard Taylor has over 30 years’ experience in the building trade and prides himself on the reputation that the company has procured since its establishment. He says:

I left school at 15 to begin a City & Guilds apprenticeship as a builder for my father’s company and have been enjoying all the challenges of the building trade ever since. Since starting my own company, I have always worked on the expectation that you, the customer, will want us back again in the future.”

Gerard writes:

We have gathered a huge portfolio of work that we have carried out in the Ryedale area. Every project is executed in fine detail, and every aspect of your project is undertaken by fully qualified local tradesmen.”

The company proficiently carries out an extensive range of building projects — from new builds, extensions, and general building repairs, to sympathetic alterations and restorations of Grade II listed buildings. In regard to the latter, Gerard Taylor and his team always work in accordance with English Heritage guidelines.

Owing to the expertise of Gerard Taylor’s curated team of tradesmen, Gerard Taylor Ltd is able to execute your building project from start to finish, including plumbing and electrical services. In other words, Gerard Taylor Ltd is able to work with you from the initial onset of your idea for a building project to its completion.

They always work closely with an independent building control and warranty control company who inspect their work upon request.

Over the last few years, Gerard Taylor Ltd has established their building ethics into new technology with the use of Sips Timber frames and renewable sources in their new-builds and extensions, giving their customer’s lower utility costs in the future.

In addition to all this, Gerard Taylor Ltd is also a HETA certified installer of multi-fuel stoves (both rigid & flexible flue liners).
