“I spent almost all my working life at Pittaway’s. They look after you and they are a really good set of blokes. There are some who are not that far behind me, which speaks volumes about the company.”

Our Team

We are a family firm that takes great pride in our work.

All our tradesmen are professionally trained and have all the relevant accreditations to deliver a quality, professional service in a safe and timely manner.

Our lads are not afraid of hard graft. They are tidy, conscientious and considerate and packed with experience and enthusiasm from the back office to the guys who go out on site.

Recently, we worked out that the average length of service is more than 12 years, but many people have been with us for a lot longer than that.

Take Carl Marshall, he retired after 46 years with the company - and yes we gave him a good send off. Our longest serving employee is now Paul Trory who has been with us for more than 30 years.

At the other end of the scale, we run an Apprenticeship scheme with Hull College, which gives youngsters from the city the chance to learn a decent trade.

Many of our regular clients ask for the same gang back time after time. We think that means we make a great team!
