Customer testimonials

We received numerous quotes for work, which included demolition, kitchen refit, patio refit, and flat roof replacement. It was Matt’s company only who maintained consistent communication during the decision stage. This, his experience, knowledge and his fair quote, made us choose JKL Construction. We have no regrets. Matt's team were consistently reliable, with excellent work ethics and skills. They went above and beyond what we expected of a building team. In addition, they maintained good humour and politeness throughout - sometimes in circumstances where anyone's patience would have been tried. We were kept fully informed, with payments requested periodically upon percentage completion. Any problems encountered were met with intelligent problem solving, leading to practical solutions, whilst keeping in mind that we were on a budget. Matt answered questions promptly and clearly. Nothing seemed to faze him. We would have JKL back in a moment. We would thoroughly recommend them. - Claire Cheetham & Vince Cullen

We are so glad JKL’s leaflet came through our door. We don’t usually use companies unless we know someone who has used them before, but something felt right about this local family business. From start to finish the project has been a joy. We have especially enjoyed the people Matt has brought to the job; a skilled team of conscientious, fun, yet hardworking builders. The attention to detail and eagerness to meet our every expectation has resulted in our dream annexe; a building that will stand the test of time, holding its own alongside the other two Grade II Listed buildings on the site. Ultimately, the use of quality people has resulted in a quality build and we would not hesitate to recommend Matt and his team to anyone. - Jilly McNaughton

From the invitation to tender JKL's approach has been very provisional. On presenting the costs everything was explained and how the PC sums would be spent on our choose of fittings. The construction has been to a very high standard and carried out by very professional and friendly craftsmen. Following the start of the contract work was delayed by serve inclement weather. JKL still completed the work on time and budget. After completion, we have received telephone calls asking if everything is ok and any problems. This shows thought and care in ensuring a satisfied client. Would highly recommend JKL Construction. - Conversion of stable block to 5 bedroom house.

JKL Construction & Carpentry Ltd recently built a two story extension compromising a boot/utility room, a dressing room and en-suite to the master bedroom along with a single story extension to extend the existing kitchen to comprise a bigger kitchen, dining and family room with ceiling lanterns, underfloor heating and bi-fold doors to the garden. We were very impressed with the quality of work, the team worked consistently and conscientiously and were willing to go over and above. Our original house dates back to the 1800’s and therefore as the build went along we came up against various unforeseen issues, any necessary uplift on costs was clearly communicated and agreed before going ahead with the extra work. We are delighted with the final result and would highly recommend JKL Construction & Carpentry Ltd for any further work. - Kelly Mowles
