Testimonials some reviews & kind words from our clients

Reference:- JBalltrades
The above builder and his team were recommended to me by a close work colleague whose judgement I trust. He had worked for her and her neighbour over the course of the past ten years and had successfully completed a whole variety of different projects for both of them. Given this recommendation, I then went to see the work done by him on her house. I was impressed by the quality of the work and the positive feedback she gave about her experience of his company. We were contemplating a fairly major house extension involving new build foundations, removal of an internal wall, and building a ground floor extension with shower room and new bedroom and refitted kitchen.

We commissioned our own architect and structural engineer who designed the whole project. We then invited tenders from several building firms. Mr. Brown responded promptly and he met with us and the design team. He quickly produced a detailed quote for the works along with a probable completion date. We were all satisfied that he could deliver the project.

We decided to commission him and his firm to produce the works:

  • Remove the conservatory
  • Convert the garage
  • Build a garden room{new foundations}
  • Extend and refit kitchen{internal wall to be removed}
  • New shower room
  • New bedroom
  • Install new boiler
  • New cupboards

He gave us a clear estimate of cost and a completion date. He worked closely with our design team and he attended meetings with them and us.{ to accommodate our schedules.} Crucially he and the design team took care of contact with G.C.C. to ensure planning permission and building warrants were all in order.

Once the work began,we were surprised{ given the major size of the undertaking} how little disruption we experienced during the time. We were never without heating and always able to have hot food and running water.

It was clear from the outset that he has a fantastic team of joiners, carpenters, plumber, electrician tiler and roofers. It was evident that he has a close knit team who displayed a great deal of camaraderie and cooperation. They were reliable ,hard working and cheerful but NOT intrusive. Having them in the house for almost 3 months was not a problem. Their input was scheduled and monitored by Jeff on a daily basis and any problems solved expeditiously. We were kept up to date with the progress of the works.

This was a firm/ team who exhibited reliability, honesty, integrity and a pride in their work. The whole work was completed on time and within the specified budget{ no nasty surprises!} We have a stunning extension which exceeds our expectations and aspirations. I cannot speak highly enough of Jeff and his team and have no hesitation in recommending this firm.

Jeff and his team completed an extension and conversion of old kitchen to a shower room and small utility space. They worked well as a team with Jeff overseeing and coordinating the tasks, at which he was excellent. Their level of workmanship was to a very high standard. Considering the extent of the work and the inevitable disruption, they did what they could to minimise dust and mess.

Jeff kept me up to date with progress and work was finished within estimated time. There were some inevitable snags but all options were thoroughly discussed with me and Jeff did his best to defray cost without compromising on quality: he was clear when the cheap option was not advisable or directed me towards cheaper options where he saw I could make savings. Both neighbours commented on the quality of the team and their work ethic and respect. I would definitely use JB All Trades again.

Jean C. McInnes – Renovation @ Broomley Drive, Giffnock.
Jeff and his team arrived on a cold November morning and started my renovation in a very efficient manner. The demolition team arrived, walls came down and debris cleared in week1.
The house was open to the elements but you did your best to keep it secure. Then the joiners, plumbers and electricians set to work. Goods arrived when required and the job progressed even on the coldest days. I had a working kitchen by Christmas as promised.

The job was completed on schedule by mid-December bar some snagging which was done in January. Special shout out to Kevin, a skilled joiner, who arrived first most mornings and did a lot of the supervision, your right hand man so to speak.You would come on site, check progress and sort out any issues requiring attention.

I would not hesitate to recommend your building company as we are very happy with our renovations and is much admired by family and friends.

My experience of Jeffrey was absolutely 1st class. The service was both personnel and professional. They recently completed the removal and re-installation of a new bathroom and kitchen together with an attic conversion. They committed to a time scale, and completed the works within this timescale. Their work was of a very high standard with a particular eye for detail. Their staff was always on time, courteous, tidy and discreet. JB All Trades came with a high recommendation and they certainly didn’t disappoint!!

Jeff Brown carried out a garage conversion for us Oct-Dec 2006. We have been delighted with his workmanship, professional attitude and courteous manner (not to mention his amazing work ethic!). We have since used him in other projects and he is about to start a kitchen/diner conversion for us. I was so confident about his work, that I have been able to recommend him to friends and colleagues who have been similarly impressed. Jeff is so good that we wouldn’t’ think of going anywhere else!
Regards

Jeff Brown’s company built a garage for us in Spring 2007 and I have no reservations in recommending him for any building work. Jeff is courteous, dependable and punctual and takes great pride in his work, which is of the highest standard. Our project was within timescale and budget and very well finished. He and his team are always very helpful and are tidy workers – our neighbours complimented them on this.

You will be pleasantly surprised, when using JB All Trades, at how painless it can be to have building work done!

M Dyer – Glasgow
JB All Trades converted our dirty, grotty cellar into beautiful large and airy kitchen / utility room over last autumn/winter.
The new space has transformed our house and the whole family is very happy with the end result.
It was undoubtedly stressful while the work was underway but throughout the project Jeff and his team worked very hard, they were always on time and nothing was too much trouble. Jeff worked through any unexpected challenges, of which there were a few and overall made every effort so the end result was as we wanted it. The finished job is great and the overall quality very good. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jeff.

Just to say thanks for your help and professionalism in rebuilding the wall at our house which had been knocked down by a car. The job was extremely well done with your brickie and rough caster both providing a first class service. Thanks again for a first class job. Regards

Having used JB All Trades to renovate my toilet and shower rooms I can’t recommend them enough. Their involvement truly made this a painless experience and the quality of the work done has resulted in an end result that exceeded my expectations.

Jeff and his team met or exceed the benchmark on every aspect of the job, professionalism, communication, work ethic, quality and attention to detail. Any initial wariness I had on hiring a company based solely on the testimonials on their website were removed once I had met Jeff face to face. His manner in dealing with me was always as a professional tradesman and never as a salesman, building a level of trust that gave me confidence that I had chosen the right person for the job before the work had even started.

The work itself was carried out to a first class standard, within the agree time frame and price; which in itself was very fair and competitive. I was impressed with every aspect of the work carried out, each of the guys involved lived up to the high standards set and demonstrated by Jeff himself. Overall I’d like to thank Jeff and his team for a job really well done. If the opportunity arises I will definitely use them again in the future and recommend them to people I know.

To Jeff and ‘the gang’. A big thank you from us for the superb job you did converting our attic. All the builders were so professional – even our neighbours commented on how hard working they all were and how accommodating regarding any disruption in our narrow street caused by skips etc. Unexpected issues were dealt with promptly and with minimum fuss and it was a delight seeing grown men with a vacuum cleaner at the end of every day cleaning my stairs. The finish of the final rooms is splendid and I will be recommending you without hesitation to all my friends and colleagues. Finally, it was refreshing to meet a builder with a sense of humour to rival that of my husband!
Thank you to all

JB All Trades completed a 2 storey extension to our house and we are delighted with the result. Jeff, and all those working for him, were extremely hard working, punctual, tidy and courteous and completed work to a very high standard. Jeff kept us very well informed regarding the progress of the build and we found his advice on a number of matters, invaluable. The service was both professional and personal and Jeff’s project management skills were first rate, quickly resolving any problems and issues so that we were able to continue living in the house during the build with minimum disruption. Would highly recommend Jeff and his team to anyone.
