Alex from Pride and Joy Construction have done quite a bit of work for us. He adapted a bungalow for a disabled person, laid a new driveway, put on a new roof and also built a car port. Not only did Alex do a first class job, he came up with some very good ideas which saved us money. He did the work when we were off site and he kept us in the picture all the time. We are absolutely delighted with the work that has been done, I would recommend him to anyone and we would certainly use him in future.

Chimney Building / Repairs

15/11/2019

Pride Joy took down a chimney and re-roofed the area, took out the hearth in the lounge, re-plastered the wall, skimmed a ceiling, skimmed another wall for us in the dining area and replaced a garage roof that was damaged in a storm. They were punctual, very polite and the one thing that really stood out was that at the end of each day they would completely clean the area and tidy up, even going into our neighbours to check if any brick dust had gone over as they would sweep their drive as well. They did not stop and talk on mobiles all the time, in fact I didn\'t even see a mobile. They were really good workers and the job has been done to a really high standard and we are delighted with the work that they have done. I would definitely recommend them.

One bed dormer

15/11/2019

P&J Construction recently completed my dormer extension. I had not had any work from the company previously locating them online. Their quote was realistic and value for money. My considerations when using builders are; 1. That they're close to their quote 2. That they're punctual & polite 3. That they clean up 4. That they're security conscious 5. They complete the work to a high standard I can say that P&J completed all of the above. Alex provided me a quote for the work & time of when the work could start. They turned up nice & early throughout the build so we could discuss what work would be carried out that day before i went to work. Due to bad weather they also worked long into the evening, worked weekends or simply got wet. They continued to graft through wintery conditions & surpassed my expectations. They created more floor space than what the architect suggested. When removing the roof they identified poor work left by previous builders and righted all wrongs. They had cleaned up after themselves and on completion of work they cleaned all areas of where they had worked which was highly appreciated. They were very polite to my wife and children and they were professional throughout. They always locked up after themselves and made sure all windows were locked. Best of all, the work came in at exactly what they quoted. Overall I am extremely pleased with the finished product.

RON WILSON - RENOVATION OF HOLIDAY HOME

13/11/2019

Choosing a builder is very difficult and worrying at any time. Placing trust with your most prized possession in one company is a nervous and thought-provoking time. Having moved recently to the Paignton area we decided to embark on some much-needed renovation of our newly acquired home. After some local help we made contact with Alex at Pride and Joy construction. During his initial visit he made us feel very relaxed with the proposed works and offered great suggestions on how we could proceed and improve on our ideas. We received a well presented and fully detailed proposal for the works and after a very short time we decided to proceed. Alex started on the work on time and the day he stated. He was prompt and was clear on what and how he was going to proceed with the works. Working with Alex and his team gave us confidence to grow our ideas into a bigger project. Alex offered cost saving suggestions throughout the project but kept quality to the highest standard. During the project Alex and his team worked around us while we got on with our daily life. His team were extremely courteous at all times and made extra efforts to clean up after each day. All works were left in a safe and secure state, which is imperative when our children were running around. Any changes to our project were clearly communicated to us by Alex and we were given options before any changes were made. This helped us to keep control of our budget throughout the project. We cannot recommend highly enough the quality of workmanship and the hardworking nature of all the team in the company. We have ended with a beautifully built kitchen, conservatory and extension to the house which is a testament to the professionalism of Pride and Joy Construction. Overall, I would not hesitate to use Pride and Joy construction again and would recommend them to anyone in the area who is looking for a quality builder.

Renovation

This was a complete renovation of their holiday home, adding a substantial conservatory.

To completely re-design the garden which was previously un-usable due to being on a steep slope, of which Alex designed a 3 tier design enabling him to have an area for the children, and area for sunbathing for the adults and also the top level from the conservatory for entertaining family and guest’s.

Alex enjoyed this project as he was able to demonstrate his design ideas and put them into practice which Mr Wilson put complete trust in Alex’s ideas and outcome.

Barn Conversion

11/11/2019

We purchased Bovey Barn at the Auction from the farmer, he used it to feed the Pigs.

We converted the barn retaining all barn period features throughout. With restrictive covenants we had to exhaust all construction skill and expertise in order to maximise on minimal space, enabling us to gain 3 bedrooms.   The finished barn was completed rich in period features, slate flooring, wooden beams, period bathroom & kitchen, with countryside charm into a stylish country retreat.

Large Renovation

11/11/2019

This was a large Renovation for a property in Essex. Mr & Mrs Owen bought a house that was in a beautiful location, lovely gardens but the house had no style, no features. They had some good plans drawn up although our master builder could see an entirely different scheme and changed most of the layout, Mr Owen was very keen on his vision. 

This house transformed into a sleek, stylish property which now dictates elaborate Elegance! Bursting with features and charm it developed a beautiful character fitting for its Essex surroundings.
