Hi, I’m Rachel Astley and I’m a Director at Adamson's. I'm in charge of ensuring that people - just like you - know what we do and how we can help create your dream home. It's a job I love, and a business I've been involved in for a very long time.
You see, I’m immensely proud to say that Adamson’s was started over 30 years ago by my dad, Colin Moors – and although we’ve grown over the years, we still have proper family values at our heart.
What this means for you is we never forget it’s your home we’re working in.
It’s why we place importance on the little things – like removing dirty work boots or tidying up as best we can at the end of the day.
After all, your home is your private sanctuary. It’s your very own “safe haven” where you can shut out the rest of the world and just be you. It’s your place to relax, entertain and create memories. And because you work hard, you deserve your home to be just perfect – and that’s exactly what Adamson’s can help you achieve.
A family adventure that’s still evolving after three decades
30 years on, and my dad is still a huge driving force behind the business. For example, he was the brains behind our diversification into luxury interiors. It was his vision that Adamson’s should be a “one-stop for north-west homeowners.” A place where home improvements could be managed from start to finish - that’s design, planning, building, interiors plus the finishing touches – and that’s what we now offer.
And myself? Well, I’ve been involved with Adamson’s since I was seven (and no, that's not a misprint!)
As a child, I loved watching my dad establish his construction business from our spare bedroom – the very room that used to house bikes, dolls prams and other kiddies' paraphernalia belonging to my younger sister and me! But the best bit was “helping” (or perhaps hindering!) the unloading of lengths of timber, or even a bag of nails from the delivery truck and carrying them up the steep drive to the garage for safe storage. I can still remember how important I felt, and I treasure my part in helping to nurture our fledgling business all those years ago.
“To offer a superb level of customer service and quality, taking care of every project from the essential paperwork and planning consent right through to the happy hand-over of a beautiful, bespoke design and build solution.”
But don’t take our word for it. Instead, check out the scores of testimonials we’ve received over the years, which show just what’s possible for your home with the Adamson’s touch…
You promised a first class job carried out by professional tradesmen with minimum disruption and that’s exactly what we’ve got! I think Simon could teach most of British industry a thing or two about project management!
