Meet the Man Behind the Name

Hello and welcome to my website, I’am Wayne Erfmann, 30 years old from Adlington, Lancashire. I have been part of the building trade since I was old enough to walk. My dad was a Foreman on site when I was younger. My brother and I were on site as often as we could be when not in school.

I left school when I was just 14. I didn’t find it easy at school. Maths, French and Geography just wasn’t me. I always new I wanted to be a builder and from an early age I just wanted to work. I left school and started work for my dads company. I worked there for 4 years I worked hard, Day in day out, Starting from the bottom i worked my way up doing all different building work from extensions and conversions through to driveways and groundwork.
After 4 years I began my second role, Learning the craft of Joinery. This time I did 6 years on site and it’s through my time here I gained my NVQ’s in Groundwork and Shuttering Joinery. I set up my own business at the age of 25 working part time at first but business soon took off, 6 months later W Erfmann & Son Builders & Groundwork was a full time business. I have never looked back, In my 6 years trading we have grown from strength to strength. Nowadays we are always busy.
For a tradesman with  high quality work at competitive prices, Word travels fast. Most of my work nowadays comes from repeat customers and recommendations.
In just 6 years trading we have 3 vans and full time staff, Trained to meet and exceed expectations. We Deliver high levels of customer service and provide a truly professional service on every occasion.


I have 2 children who I work very hard for, my daughter 11 and 3 year old boy that is already ready to join in the business :) I love what I do, and I think that’s important, i’m not in it just for the money, going from one job to the next picking up cheques, I genuinely enjoy my work on site, meeting new people, engaging with customers and getting to know them, and perhaps most importantly it’s the end result for me, when it comes to installing a new driveway or refurbishing an old one you’ll notice if you have me on site I love to take photos when I arrive, throughout the job and take a look at my face on completion, I take pride in the end result, you have to love what you do I think, without the love for the job or pride in your work the standard of work just isn’t there.

I don’t “sell” I don’t push and I don’t pester, you’ll get that a lot from groundworkers, well any type of trade really, not me, you can pick up the phone and have a chat with a real human being with no ulterior motive and no salesman patter, I left school early so never got round to sales training or psychology :0

I always new I would have my own business from a early age. It’s all I have ever known and all I’ve ever wanted to do, my reputation means everything to me, one bad job is all it takes to destroy a reputation built up over 6 years. With me you are guaranteed a high quality service, a beautiful driveways and a competitive price.
