Banken Building’s director Francis has over 40 years of experience in the building industry as a Roof Carpenter. Francis completed his apprenticeship with his father and continued to work with him until he retired, which then saw Francis take over the family business. In recent years Francis’s daughter, Ashleigh, has also joined the business and completed her carpentry apprenticeship.
Francis and his team of qualified carpenters pride themselves in quality workmanship and only use good quality products from local suppliers. They work on small to large projects such as:
- roofing on new residential properties
- home renovations requiring timber frame work, re-roofing
- decking for verandahs, entertaining areas and pool areas

Single Storey Addition – Kalamunda
Our lives have been changed for the better as a result of the renovation completed by Banken Building. Francis provided us with great ideas on how to improve our old 3 x 1 cottage in Kalamunda (our block is on a slope so not the easiest to build on). We ended up completely transforming our home into a 4 x 2 with a lock-up garage and a huge entertaining deck. All of the new areas were built in timber frame and we even put a new tin roof over the entire residence. Francis has so many contacts in the building industry which made the whole process seamless. We have encountered a number of obstacles along the way (as goes with renovating an old home), Francis and his team were super quick to come up with solutions that were achievable and affordable. We’ll be forever grateful for the work they’ve done on our dream home. Thank you to Francis, Ashleigh and the boys.
