We transformed an old stable block into an amazing 5 bedroom family home with annexe accommodation.
This project had solar power and air source heating installed, bringing this old stable block well and truly into the 21st century!
This very tired building with Tudor foundations, completed in it's current form back in 1793 and with Grade 2 listed status was to be a very challenging project! Due to years of neglect the entire building required careful restoration and renovation. We felt truly privileged to be able to work on such an exceptional building.
With our attention to detail and dedicated team, JKL were able to transform this beautiful building from roof to basement back to it's former glory and it is now a wonderful and spacious family home again.
We are so happy with our extension and very glad we chose JKL. Right from the very start, Matt was more than happy to help and advise - looking at ways to save us money and talking through different finishes / fixtures and the different price options. We were particularly impressed by the detailed quote at the start. We went through many changes and redesigns with the architect and Matt was more than happy to spend time looking at each plan and requoting. He'd happily pop in and answer the many questions we had and there were a lot! He was super patient as we were totally new to this. When the work began we were really impressed by all of the builders. They were super respectful, polite and funny and were considerate of our needs as a family at all times. So happy now it's finished. I was amazed by how smoothly it all went. Matt and the team work their socks off, are highly professional and we'd really recommend them - great job! Thank you all :-)
Matt and JKL Construction built a 2 storey rear extension and internal renovation on my house. Working with Matt and his team was straightforward and clear. Any changes to the quote due to complications during construction were outlined clearly and priced fairly. I'd have no hesitation in recommending Matt for any building works.
Outstanding from start to finish. When we met Matt he was very professional and had some great ideas. Barry stayed with us throughout the kitchen renovation. What a fab fella he is. All the JKL team are really hard workers and really down to earth. Whoever was on site that day always cleared up after themselves before they left. We were always kept up to date with who was on site the next day. Fantastic attention to detail. End result was more than we imagined. Would recommend JKL day after day. Just make sure you have enough coffee in the house :-)
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.
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.
I can thoroughly recommend JKL Construction & Carpentry Ltd for their professional attitude and attention to detail. I am extremely happy with my extended bathroom and wetroom
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.
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.
JKL Construction & Carpentry Ltd has been a pleasure to work with and we're delighted with how our rear extension and internal renovations have turned out. From the very beginning of the project through to completion and snagging, Matt and his team have been friendly and professional, keeping us informed and involved at each stage. All the works were laid out clearly in the quote and Matt was very transparent about any unavoidable price uplifts as well as drops in price, which were discussed with us in advance. We found the fortnightly valuation sheets ahead of invoicing particularly helpful in tracking the progress of the project and keeping our budget on track. The quality of the work is extremely high and we have no hesitation in recommending JKL to our family and friends.
This was our first experience doing major building works and JKL were good at leading us through the whole process. Their original quote was reasonable and itemised in a comprehensive way and any changes to this original fee were communicated well throughout the project. We did experience a number of delays throughout the work but these were mostly due to factors outside of JKL’s control, for example the onset of bad weather through the winter months. The team did push at the end of the project to reduce this delay as much as possible. The finished product is excellent. We are delighted particularly with the way the kitchen has been fitted and Mat has been hands-on to the very end to make sure we are happy. Overall we love the new space. It has revitalised our house meaning we can stay here for many more years to come.
JKL are a well established, reliable and trustworthy company. They undertook a complete renovation and double rear extension of our home which was finished to a very high standard. They have great workmanship and pride themselves in doing a great job. All of the team were very pleasant to deal with, kept us fully informed along the way and helped us to overcome any hurdles we came across with a quick and efficient resolution. A comprehensive quote was provided at the start of the job with any changes being discussed and agreed before they were commenced. Since completion, the aftercare has also been outstanding – we highly recommend.
We’re so pleased we chose JKL for our build project, which was a knock through of our kitchen into the dining room and ground floor extension. From the quotation process and throughout the build, communication was really strong and Matt was incredibly responsive. The regular invoicing was transparent and easy to track. The whole JKL team were friendly, respectful and easy to be around and as we were living in during the build this was really important to us. On the occasions that there were challenges (which were outside of JKL’s control) it was managed effectively with appropriate solutions found. They have transformed the downstairs of our house into a beautiful space that we are delighted with.
We had confidence from the outset that Mat & the JKL team would do a great job renovating our Georgian period building which had been used for 40+ years as an NHS doctors surgery. They had previously undertaken a smaller project for us at another period property in 2020. Under his careful eye, Mat’s team demonstrated a sincere interest in our needs and cared about doing a great job. It is clear that his staff are not only qualified & competent but love their jobs and are passionate about providing an A+ standard of workmanship, sympathetic to the unique needs of our building. All in all we would not hesitate to recommend Mat and the JKL team in the future.
We are delighted that we chose JKL Construction & Carpentry Ltd to complete the extension and renovations to our home. Matt and his team were professional, and Matt kept us up to date at all times. Although the project took considerably longer than originally planned, for a multitude of reasons, we are delighted with the end result. The building work for the extension, ensuite etc is outstanding. All of the finish completed by Matt and his team is exactly what we wanted. We also loved that Matt is down to earth and challenged us when we were potentially not making the right choices during the build. The additional space this has given our home is amazing. We cannot recommend JKL Construction & Carpentry Ltd enough. If ever we wanted to undertake any further home improvements, Matt and his team would be our first port of call. Thank you JKL.
This was our second project with JKL, and as with the first, I thoroughly recommend them. Matt's communications are all clear and professional, his time and cost estimates proved to be accurate, and the quality of the work carried out is very good. We are very happy with our new space!
My wife and I would like to thank JKL Construction & Carpentry Ltd for the amazing project (Extension) the team at JKL completed! It has absolutely transformed our social living space. From the tender process through to completion the Team at JKL were a pleasure to work with. Not at any point of the build process did I feel that I was not part of the process, the Key workers on site were polite and the attention to detail was exceptional! As with all projects we unearthed additional areas that required attention to which JKL advised on and addressed and captured within programme and budget... which was key. All variations and valuations were up to date and presented professionally. A big thank you to all at JKL... I have and will continue to recommend to others. Keep up the good work.
Matt Williams and the JKL team showed their full commitment to our design intent for our garden cabin. In advance of the start on site, we were invited to visit another project to view the sliding doors JKL were recommending installed and in use, which we appreciated. The team on site were efficient and co-operative and worked very conscientiously to achieve our anticipated level of quality, and their subcontractors were similarly very well organised. We are delighted with the result.
JKL carried out works to reconfigure our downstairs with a kitchen extension and garage conversion which has given us the most amazing space for our family. We chose JKL due to the experience Matt had which was apparent from when we first met and we are so grateful we chose JKL for the end result. The whole team were fabulous who became part of our daily lives with the amount of time they spend in your home. The benefits of JKL was having our own site Manager Matt 2 who did an amazing job. We’re absolutely delighted with our space, the finish is to an extremely high standard. I can’t recommend them highly enough. Thank you guys!
We had an extension and kitchen renovation done by JKL Construction (Stansted) recently and Matt Williams and his team did a brilliant job. They gave us clear timelines and kept us informed of progress and any potential deviation. The JKL Construction team highlighted potential challenges during the process and came with solutions to ensure we kept the process moving. We would happily use Matt and his team again and highly recommend JKL Construction!
I am delighted with our new extension constructed by Matt Williams and his team from JKL Construction over winter 2021. The quality of the work was excellent and attention to detail was superb. The clear and realistic breakdown of costs at the start with regular updates on expenditure throughout was very helpful. Communication throughout was exemplary and there were no issues that couldn't be resolved or accommodated. The site foreman was as concerned with quality as we were. As both the client and the architect for the project I was extremely satisfied with the final quality of the work and progress throughout and would highly recommend.
From start to finish I was really happy with JKL. The quote was reasonable and came with a clear breakdown of where the money is going. Matt provided really good practical advice before the project started and kept our feet on the ground -- not trying to push the sale with promises of only smooth times ahead. The quality of the work is excellent and we couldn't be happier with the results. The guys working on the site were all good fun, proper professionals, and also considerate not to leave a mess (or disturb the neighbours too much). All finished on time and pretty much on the original quoted price. Would definitely recommend JKL to anyone planning to do an extension on their house (and already have!).
Matt and team created a new extension and fully gutted and replaced our existing kitchen creating a lovely new space for us. Support was given throughout the whole process and issues with supply chain and unavoidable delays were managed professionally. A friendly hardworking team with clear and honest pricing helped to make the whole process as smooth as possible. Highly recommended.
Matt and his team did a 1.5 story extension and full refurbishment of our house. They have been very open and honest from the very beginning and included us in all the relevant decisions that had to be made during the build. It has been a challenging time with material and labour shortages, but Matt dealt with all of this without us having to worry about it and his time estimate to completion was spot on (even with adding additional work items during the build). All work has been performed to a high standard and Matt took care of fixing any issue (which are expected due to settlement) after completion.
JKL Construction & Carpentry Ltd carried out our single storey extension to a very high standard, they are reliable and efficient. JKL provided a comprehensive service and their team were, without exception, highly skilled, polite, meticulous and tidy. We were impressed with the effort, they went over and above in these very challenging times - shortages, covid etc., and the finished result is amazing. We would definitely recommend JKL for their dedication, tenacity and their honest and up-front approach. Thanks for enhancing our home, we love it!
We are so happy with our new kitchen. Matt and his team did a superb job. From supplying the kitchen via Howdens, to sorting the kitchen fit, electrics and plumbing- we are so happy with it all. Great communication and attention to detail throughout. Would 100% recommend.
Matt and the team at JKL Construction have been great, really easy to work with. Matt has a great eye for detail and noticed some remedial work to do ahead of signing off the build which had escaped my attention - another builder might have let that slide but JKL didn't and so the project was only signed off when both myself and Matt were satisfied. I would have no hesitation in using JKL again or recommending them to others.
Matt and his team completed a two story extension to the side of our house and a large single story extension to the rear. There initial quote was very thorough, detailed and competitive. The work carried out was to a very high standard of finish. I would highly recommend JKL construction. Matt, Jake and the team were a pleasure to have around.
Throughout the project, they were extremely professional - well-structured quotations, good, clear and timely communication, and most importantly, the work was well carried out with a careful attention to detail. We're very happy with the end result, and hope to use JKL again!
JLK Construction stood out from the beginning as thorough, honest, knowledgeable and passionate. Matt and the team were completely transparent with their pricing, adaptable when requests and add ons were made and were on hand if we needed anything. The team were trustworthy and a pleasure to be around. Thanks JLK for delivering our vision. We’re delighted with the space you’ve created and look forward to raising our family in it over the years to come.
Despite extremely difficult times for materials supplying the construction industry, I was extremely impressed with the professionalism and pragmatism that the team at JKL Construction brought to our build. No problem was without a solution, with the client’s needs always at the forefront. Regular clear communications helped align our expectations especially with materials arrival dates, which was beyond their control. The team also ensured that a qualified tradesman was on site immediately once the necessary materials arrived. The payment process was transparent and no unforeseen additional costs were levied. All in all, I’d highly recommend JKL Construction for their dedication to a quality outcome and their flexibility to accommodate client change requests.
We would like to thank the craftsmen of JKLConstructionltd.co.uk for their excellent work and friendly respectful manner. They replaced a traditional conservatory roof with a solid roof incorporating a lantern and new lighting. The kitchen also was made -over with new work surface (amazingly original tiles were not damaged), new doors and lights. A job well done and a company we would certainly recommend, Satisfied customers A and G
The initial quote we received was incredibly detailed with every element of the work individually priced. This made it so easy for us to make decisions to add and remove elements depending on our budget. Matt was always on hand to answer any questions and give practical, cost effective solutions to any issues encountered throughout the project. He is very experienced and we always felt confident in his ability to get the job done. Tyson managed the project day to day. The quality of his work was fantastic and he took real care and attention to make sure the house was looked after during the renovation. Everyone who worked on the project was a pleasure to have around and we’re so happy with the end result. Special mention to Carl whose painting was second to none.
I shortlisted 4 builders to undertake our building work. From day 1 I liked Matthew and haven’t been disappointed. Having a friendly and trustworthy team of unknowns in your house is very important but every visiting JKL tradesmen was great. Our project was led by Jake, who always listened and went over and above to help. Jake was here every day, keeping things going, coordinating tradesmen and keeping me informed at all stages. The project came in on budget even with a few unavoidable hiccups and holdups along the way. Matthew was keen to help and make our wants possible. I can not recommend JKL strongly enough and hope the company continues to grow. They are perfectionists and attended to details that I would’ve overseen. Thank you so much for our lovely new extension 😃.
"Mathew impressed us both with his knowledge and quick response to our request. The project was to remove a wall and create a kitchen diner. JKL Construction has access to all the required trades: Structural Surveyor, Building Control, Kitchen Designer, Project Manager, Labourer, Plasterer, Electrician, Plumber and Decorator. I always felt secure that the project would continue and complete on time and within budget. Matt our day to day Project manager was very helpful and knew exactly how to deal with the many different tasks involved in the project. The finished result is very satisfying and exactly what was wanted."
Matt and his team were friendly and professional. They kept us informed throughout and advised and offered solutions when needed. The quality of the work was excellent and we are delighted with the end result
Matt and his team at JKL Constructions have recently completed a remodelling project in the down stairs of our house (July 2020). This involved demolishing an internal wall, installing a major new structural oak beam, various joinery, installation of new flooring, electrical work and general decoration, all of which was completed and finished to an excellent standard. From the outset JKL stood out - the quoting system was straightforward and easy to understand. Matt worked well with both our engineer and building control, which helped the project to run smoothly and keep within timescales. It was a pleasure working with Matt and his friendly and skilled team who went out of their way to make sure everything was exactly to our liking. I would have no hesitation recommending JKL Construction to anyone looking for a builder and they will certainly be our first point of call should we need any work done in the future!
JKL recently built our extension. We are so pleased with our new space and are so grateful to the team for all their hard work. On the first day the team set up the worksite, and made it look very professional with fences and barriers to protect our property. JKL were so amenable to our requests and questions throughout the whole project. We were given a project plan and Matt regularly updated us with progress. This was so reassuring and really put us at ease. The communication was outstanding. All the team were so friendly and very conscientious. They paid attention to every detail and even jet washed our drive on the last day. Thank you to the whole JKL team who worked on our project.
We would like to thank Mathew, Becky, Dickie, Barry and the rest of the team for their exceptional work. Our project was delivered to the highest quality standard, was on time and on budget. This was the first building work we’d ever commissioned, so we were understandably nervous but JKL immediately made us feel comfortable. Mathew maintained excellent communication throughout and was very professional, helpful and generally did whatever he could to keep us happy (which we were!). He took full ownership of the project, going above and beyond to make sure the results were as good as they could be, whilst also ensuring that costs were controlled. He was able to identify good opportunities for improvement, which made all the difference to the end result. The team are all highly skilled at what they do. They are also nice people and are considerate, polite and well mannered. Our job wasn’t the most straightforward, yet the team took all of the challenges in their stride and ensured that the end result was perfect. They kept the site as clear and tidy as possible, whilst also maintaining excellent site safety. Another exceptional quality of JKL is transparency – costs were fully itemised and valuations were fair, honest, accurate and easy to understand. Becky was extremely professional and was a pleasure to work with. There really isn’t a bad word to say about the entire experience and we are thrilled with the results. We genuinely feel lucky to have selected JKL for the work and would do so again if the opportunity were to ever arise. We will certainly strongly recommend JKL to our friends and family.
We used JKL construction and Matt and the team were brilliant at everything! Being what I call myself to be a “ fussy client” they rose to the challenge of meeting my high expectations! We even continued their services to the garden as Matt is a skilled carpenter the decking seemed to be an easy task for him! I am thrilled to have a home we can enjoy at last and I would be happy for anyone looking for a builder to recommend Matt and the guys.
JKL recently replaced all our internal doors, arctrive and frames, and some skirting. Fantastic job, highly professional, highly recommend.
Matt and his team have just finished our house extension. The service has been exceptional and we are delighted with the results. Matt is brilliantly organised and from the very start kept us informed of what we could expect to happen and when. Everything happened when he said it would, which made it much easier for us to plan for our kitchen installation and deliveries of furniture etc. I really cannot recommend JKL Construction highly enough. We do not intend to do any more building, but if we do in the future, I would not use anyone else. Thank you to Matt and everyone at JKL!
Matt has just finished a house extension for us. He and his team were professional, friendly and efficient. He even did additional jobs for us and kindly included them in the original quote, whereas many other traders would have charged extra. Would certainly recommend..
