In 2006, Markus Berres, a craftsman for over 25 years, and his wife Eva created a company focusing on skilled work in the renovation of houses in the Languedoc area, of southern France. Their workshop is in St. André de Roquelongue in departement of the Aude, close to Narbonne.
Their aim is to offer high quality work in the true spirit of craftsmanship, while respecting the environment.
They will support your project with experience and advice, individually tailored to your needs.
They are committed to carrying out their work with respect for the human being, nature, craftsmanship and architectural heritage.
They cover not just major works like modifications to walls, creating openings, the renovation of facades, roofing, the building of terraces and balconies, but also finishing jobs like parquet or tile flooring, bathrooms, made to measure furniture, decorative pieces based on client sketches, or modifications to existing doors and windows (e.g. to make them draught proof)

Markus Berres continues his commitment for the environment by using ecological materials even when these were difficult to find in the Corbières area,

like lime (multiple functions), linseed oil, organic insulation materials such as hemp, recycled paper, cork, etc.. and wood, when possible, from nearby sawmills.
