One of wonderful clients has been kind enough to take the time to leave a review of the recent building work we carried out for her on a front extension. Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback for us.

The Process:

I decided to extend the front of my house to increase my living area.
CJK Builders came highly recommended by a friend of my sister.
I received a very detailed quote and decided to go ahead with the work.
Building work was completely contained on my property and the impact on neighbours was minimised.

A lot of effort and attention went into the groundworks, structural alterations and brickwork – the building inspector made positive comments and noted that David, the boss, dealt with issues that other builders would apparently have just left (there was a steel beam in an unexpected place).

Project management was excellent. As soon as one stage of the work was finished, the next stage started and I was kept up to speed throughout the process.

The People:

The core team were professional and friendly which is important when they are going to be around your home for a couple of months. Neighbours have also mentioned that the team were nice and friendly.

All contractors were 5 star – all nice people that I was happy to have in my house and good at their trades.

David had promised me my job would get 100% of his attention but I think it actually got 110%. He is a perfectionist and nothing was too much trouble. He was happy to discuss little details that he probably didn’t have time for, such as where to put sockets, and also made suggestions, such as glazed internal doors, which I’m very happy with. Yes, there is an architect’s plan and construction is a process, but the overall feel is that David appreciates that he is creating your home, not just a house, and he puts a lot of effort in to ensure you are happy with the end product.

So, the end product…

Internally, the house is transformed and finished to a really high standard.
Externally, the house looks excellent and various neighbours have complimented it – can be summed up by the neighbour who described it as ‘a cracking job’.

The end product massively exceeds my expectations and I love it!

Would I recommend David and the team? Absolutely!
