About Us

Launching in the Northeast of England in June 2021, Mountfair Homes was created to offer a turnkey solution for all domestic building projects.

Honest & Transparent

Our company ethos is to offer industry leading customer service and use master tradesmen in all aspects of building to produce a quality end product our clients love.

Unlike most builders, our team of experienced project managers use their expertise throughout the pre-construction and construction process to make our projects run seamlessly from start to finish. With a team of dedicated tradesmen we can offer our clients the best possible experience with as little stress as possible.

We believe in being honest and completely transparent in everything we do. The ‘that’ll cost extra’ industry standard is something we try to avoid at all costs by including everything a project will entail from the very outset. We let our client make the decisions they want to make and will be there to offer advise wherever possible, without pushing our own agenda.

We run simultaneous projects which allows the project management team to resource projects accordingly and ensure continuity of work, whilst remaining competitive and giving our clients value for money. Efficiency is key and the team have to plan well ahead to ensure we meet our targets and stick to program; we have to be able to adapt when the weather works against us and problem solve on the go. Whatever the obstacle, we will always retain our clients’ needs at the forefront of our decisions and always strive to do the best job possible.

Meet Our Directors

Meet Shea, our Managing Director

Shea studied Civil & Structural Engineering at Newcastle University and then started his career at a tier one contractor working as an assistant site manager on a large-scale residential development in West London.

Since then, he worked his way up the ranks of site project management for national house builders, before creating Mountfair Homes with fellow site-manager Shaun. Shea spent his time on site learning from all the trades, getting stuck in and learning how to manage busy builds - his drive and work ethic comes from spending his teenage years working on his family farm. In his spare time, he likes to spend time with his wife Caroline, dog Alfie and his friends & family.

Meet Shaun, our Operations Director

Shaun spent his teens working with his dad who was a heating engineer, enrolled into college when he left school and gained an electrical engineer apprenticeship. As he developed he found he was carrying out more of a supervisory role so ventured into the role of site management (this was further pushed by renovating his own home and enjoying this process).

Shaun soon learnt that building homes is where is heart was, and after a number of years project managing for national house-builders, both him and Shea decided it was time to set up Mountfair Homes. In his spare time Shaun likes to spend time with his wife Louise, two boys and their dog Reuben.

Both Shaun and Shea thrive off working with people and helping them create their dream homes, their drive and determination ensures projects are completed to a high standard and their management techniques ensures full cooperation with their team and sub-contractors. This communication & trust also ensures health & safety is at the forefront of all projects.

Regarding our experience of our more-or-less total home refurbishment, our expectations have been exceeded in every way. Our refurbished home is both beautiful and functional. Mountfair Homes have turned a neglected 1950s property into a home fit for the demands of 21st century living, with a high-end vibe and - importantly - a home that reflects our needs and lifestyle.

This has been achieved largely due to the excellent relationship between us and the Mountfair team, who designed an efficient schedule and kept us informed at every stage. It all happened as they said it would, there was never a day when the site was idle. The specialist tradesmen were all personable, punctual, courteous and professional, taking their lead no doubt from the tremendous team of Shea, Shaun and Marc who were always on hand at what seemed like a moment's notice.

We have no hesitation in recommending Mountfair Homes - the best company we've ever had. A huge thank you from us to everyone involved. We love our new home.

We have had building work completed by the team and in comparison to other companies I’ve dealt with before Mountfair were an absolute dream. I run by business from home so was naturally worried about the interference, however the communication was brilliant and I had a full break down of who to expect, when and what was happening day to day.

The team are all so lovely and friendly and have gone above and beyond to ensure everything has been finished off to a high standard and exactly how we wanted it. Absolute bonus they even tidy and hoover after themselves every evening! I don’t think I’ve ever had anyone do that for me!!!

I would and have recommended to a number of family and friends and would 100% went Mountfair to complete any future work for me.

We had various types of works done by Mountfair and they were fantastic the whole way through.

Having builders in the family I knew what we might expect and some of the problems that can be encountered, but I have to say that Mountfair exceeded our expectations from start to finish.

They are a great bunch of lads, friendly and professional and nothing was too much trouble for them. I would definitely recommend them to people and use them again if we have further work done.

After seeing a Mountfair Homes project (our next door neighbours), it was clear that the quality and attention to detail was just what we wanted for our own home project.

The communication was superb; easy to get in touch with and happy to answer any questions we had. Not only did they go above and beyond to help with our extension, they really made us feel like the little things mattered.

The whole build was smooth sailing and we could not be happier with the end result. Thanks you!

Having worked with Shea, Shaun and Mountfair homes on a number of projects together now I am pleased to recommend them to any of my clients when we look for contractors.

They are; friendly, reliable, dependable and always pushing for solutions to any unforeseen on site using a wide base of skills and experience within the team.

I would highly recommend them and will continue to do so and look forward to working together more in the future.

Mountfair Homes completed a conservatory replacement for me starting in June last year. An old conservatory was replaced with a smart, year round useable room.

All of the tradespeople were thorough professionals and completed their respective jobs to a very high standard. The project was completed in good time despite some delays due to a downpour that destroyed the foundation footings which had to be re-done.

Shea Grimsdale was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely have them back for home improvements in the future.

Mountfair Homes have recently finished a complete renovation of our kitchen, dining room and utility room.

Their project management skills are excellent. This and their incredible workmanship removed any stress from us. From start to finish everything was planned meticulously and we were kept fully informed of what was happening and when.

They had great design ideas that enhanced the final product. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mountfair Homes. They are an honest, trustworthy, friendly and approachable company.
Full Roof Replacement & More
Houzz Review

Mountfair Homes undertook a full roof replacement when we purchased our new house. We’d been told significant work had to be done, and knowing the age of the house (a Victorian terrace), we wanted to make sure we had expert management in case unexpected issues were found when the works commenced. When the works began it was found that additional joinery work and structural repairs were required to stabilise a dormer roof and place new timbers above a bathroom ceiling.

As soon as the issues were discovered we were immediately informed and the Mountfair Team’s expertise meant that we were presented with a plan of action, had the buildings inspector over to approve the works and had the joinery work arranged within 24 hours, meaning our initial timeframe for the project wasn’t delayed at all.

The Mountfair Team were excellent throughout the entire project, kept us up to date, were reliable and are supported by great contacts around them, we’re incredibly happy with the standard of Mountfair’s work and ability to deliver a stress free project.

I'm very happy with the work Mountfair have done for me. They were all friendly, helpful, polite, and reliable throughout.

Shea's attention to detail meant that I could relax and feel confident that he'd do a great job, which he has.

The whole team were fab and I'm so pleased with the new space and the kitchen. Thank you!
