About us

My name is Paul Merifield and I am the founder of Merifield Carpentry & Construction we are a family run carpentry and construction company.

I have over 20 years of experience in the construction industry. After leaving school I became an apprentice and attended college within two years passed my NVQ levels 1 & 2 in carpentry and joinery. I decided to stay on and complete my NVQ level 3.

In recent years I have been working for a company as a Site Manager running the sites but last year I was promoted to Contracts Manager which was overseeing the all of the projects and managing the budgets, schedules and site managers.

I have now decided to put all of that experience and form my own company. 

I have been very lucky with my career and have gained some very valuable experience over the years. 

I started off as an apprentice for a carpenter in my local area. Most of our work was around the affluent area of Wimbledon village working to extend and update properties to a very high standard.

Since qualifying as a carpenter I have worked on all manner of projects from huge residential sites, commercial buildings to small residential properties building extensions and loft conversions right down to simply hanging a door.

I also spent two years working for an exhibition company building the stands in a workshop then installing them in exhibition halls around the world. 

I am a very lucky man to have such a loving and supportive family. My wife and three boys have been an amazing inspiration to me and kept my dream to start my own company alive and now become a reality. 

My wife is the driving force behind me and pushes me to be as successful as I can be and also helps out with the business. I hope to one day pass my business down to my three sons and they carry the company onto newer and exciting projects.

Both sides of my family are very much involved in my business from my father-in-law to my brother who is a Gas Safe engineer we always look to provide the highest quality of finish.
