Because we are a small building and joinery company we pride our selves in being able to deliver bespoke projects that fit exactly to our clients requirements. Our consistently high levels of repeat business and referrals are down to the fact that we are construction professionals who care about build quality and client satisfaction. Our objective is to consistently deliver a friendly and approachable service. We have developed a strong network of architects, engineers, interior designers, and specialist sub contractors enabling us to deliver a seamless construction service.


Dave Argent

Dave left school at 16 and started his apprenticeship with a local joinery company, attending the Leeds College of Building. He went self- employed when aged 21 and some years later teamed up with Mark to form Argent & Clifton. Dave oversees more of the finishing aspects on jobs and really enjoys the final stages of projects, seeing the results of everybody’s hard work. In his spare time Dave enjoys cycling and is a keen skydiver with over 250 skydives to date.

Mark Clifton

Mark attended Harrogate College after leaving school, working for one of the very well established companies at the time, JW Taylors. After spending a couple of years in Australia in his twenties he returned to the UK and gained valuable experience sub-contracting for various companies. Mark oversees the early stages of projects, from foundations up to roof. Mark has always been a keen sportsman playing football in the past for Harrogate Town and Harrogate Railway football clubs.
