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! - Nadja & Gino (Stansted)

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. - JKL Construction Ltd

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!). - Pekka Aalto

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. - Rob

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. - Victor

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! - D&L Ball

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. - Jayne Mays

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. - N Barrett

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. - Shane Kehoe

A job well done and a company we would certainly recommend, Satisfied customers A and G - Ann and Gerry Conroy

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. - Mr K Lowe

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 😃. - M Jordan

"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." - BB

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! - ST

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. - A & L

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. - MM

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. - AL

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! - JW

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.. - ST
