Mr Patrick Taylor,
My wife and I would like to thank John and Ryan for their excellent work in providing us with a lovely new kitchen. The work involved completely gutting the old kitchen, and included fitting a new RSJ, plastering, plumbing,
electrics, carpentry and tiling. Everything was done to a very high standard, with lots of attention to detail, which included building a custom made section of cupboard to provide a seamless link between two awkwardly
located bridging units. Furthermore, with clever use of space saving techniques, they succeeded in building a kitchen that we were originally told would not fit!

Steve Jackson J&R did an outstanding job from start to finish on our extension, complete kitchen fitting and porch renovation; making practical, cost saving suggestions from the onset to securing building control approval within 2 days of completion.

Aside from high standards of workmanship and attention to detail, the main thing that impressed me was they treated my project as if it was their own.

I would have no hesitation in recommending J&R for your new build, renovation (or both!).


John has been fantastic throughout our complete home refurbishment, from providing a detailed quote in a timely manor to being patient with changes along the way. John also has great work ethics, not sure if we ever saw him eat any lunch and was always very easy to talk to. We will definitely be using John again.



Kitchen refurb

Excellent job done, reliable, very clean and tidy and all aspects of the job carried out without any fuss and done to the highest professional standards.

I decided not to replace my old kitchen units but to refurbish them. This has turned out very well and saved thousands. Having both John and Ryan on site doing the carpentry, electrics, plumbing, tiling and decorating meant that I didn't have to wait around for other trades to turn up and the job was completed in less than a week.

A very happy .

JR Services replaced our crittall windows and front door with new double glazing. John visited the property before he provided his quote and brought with him sample windows. We could choose the exact type of window right down to handle design. The quote provided was clear and transparent and far better value than anyone else.
We went for astrical style windows. The quality of the windows are of a very high standard. The installation was done in 4 days. John and his son turned up on time each day and work a full day each day. Work was very tidy, no mess, and all making good complete. All the old windows and door were taken away. Very professional job.  
I was a bit nervous about installing new windows as its an old house and I was concerned about movement etc. I was also concerned whether new windows would not be in keeping with the style of the house... but no need to worry. JR Services proved to be very competent. Advice and guidance before installation was spot on and the installation was perfect. They know exactly what their doing and can be trusted. Everything is explained beforehand and the outcome has been exceptional. It's been over a year now since installation and no issues whatsoever.
I will be using JR Services again and have highly recommended them to others.

J&R services fitted all my windows and front and back doors with a minimum of fuss and mess and it has improved my heating bills no end.

Mark & Trudi North Shoebury Essex.  John was a recommendation to us from a friend. He first fixed our porch roof making a good job at a fraction of the cost of another quote we had. 

We then asked john to re-tile our bathroom. Once again an excellent job done at a very reasonable price. 

Both myself and my wife have no hesitation in recommending John. 

Thanks again

Patrick Lyons John and his son Ryan have done extensive work on my home in the last two years. Having had the unpleasant experience of having had cowboy builders in my home on previous occasions, it is with great pleasure that I am writing this testimonial about the work John and Ryan have completed for me.
I can only compliment their work ethics, their time management and the quality of work completed on time and on budget. I am completely happy with everything that I have had done which includes, specialist floor tiling, bespoke fitted wardrobes, windows and doors that are Fensa backed and guaranteed, painting and specialist coving made on site to match previous coving that is a hundred years old. Indeed one of my neighbours commented on the fact that they never stopped working the entire day on one occasion and she was listening to the banging and hammering for a good 9 hours without stopping. I'm not entirely sure she was that pleased but I was. the guys have had some difficult work to do for me that required skill, experience and initiative which I can say they possess in abundance. I am more than happy to show people their work in my house at any time. I would not use another building firm for any of my future work, the Fordhams have got my business without question. A sincere, trustworthy, quality family business that I would recommend to everyone.
Thank you very much John and Ryan.

John and Ryan came to me as a recommendation when I had told a friend I needed to replace my windows. The windows we had were traditional real leaded windows and timber framed, I had put off replacing them for years because they gave a lot of character to our house. The windows John advised for our house are fantastic and have enhanced the look of our house and improved our insulation much more than I ever expected. We kept our dark wood look and leaded windows, while inside is white and improves the light into all rooms.

We were so happy with the fast a trouble free replacement of all our windows and front door, I then asked John to quote on a new conservatory and demolition of our old timber framed hexagon shaped conservatory. I had asked to quote on a larger P shaped conservatory that covered the whole rear aspect of our house, his quote was reasonable for the amount of work that was involved and  I had the confidence in their workmanship and skill to give us the high quality finish we expected. John gave me a time scale and for once I had found a builder who could keep to it, the demolition and rebuild was a lot faster than we expected. As it was a glass roof we had ordered it was very complicated on construction but just now looks amazing and that was recommended by John, he also recommended full sliding doors on one side and that idea brings the garden into the conservatory. When the conservatory was finished we could not of been any more pleased  with the look of the conservatory and the quality finish.

The reason I would recommend John and Ryan to anyone is what happened a week after the job had finished. We had torrential rain for 2 days and found that the complexity of our P shaped glass roof had started to leek an inevitable snag had appeared. This then proved to me what type of firm John and Ryan run after a phone call to them, within an hour himself and Ryan were on the roof and making good the snag, then taking two hours going over the whole roof to see if there would be any other problems with the roof. The conservatory has been in complete almost a year now and I have never had to ask them back to look at it.

I have used them recently for guttering work, and will always use them for all our building work in the future. I have built up such a trust with the workmanship and professionalism and would highly recommend them to anyone.
