Customer Testimonials

Jay is very reliable, reputable, honest and hardworking. He works with you to ensure the financial control of the project remains within the budget which has been agreed. All additional work is fully costed and no work is undertaken until approval from the client has been received. Jay and his supply chain (Electrician, Gas Fitter, Plumber, and Joiner) have completed the refurbishment of the bungalow to a very high standard. Everyone who has seen the finished bungalow (family, friends and neighbours) have been very impressed with the high quality of finish and are planning to use LJA Construction on jobs they are undertaking in the near future. I have no hesitation in recommending LJA Construction to anyone who is considering having building or refurbishment work undertaken. It was a pleasure to work with Jay and we look forward to working with him and his team again in 2012, when we have some work carried out on our own home. David Morris

As a professional Civil Engineer working within the construction industry managing teams undertaking infrastructure improvement works, I was keen to find a reliable builder who would work collectively and achieve high standards at my own home. I placed a brief description of my projects on the Federation of Master Builders website and Jay contacted me and asked if he could quote for the work. I was looking to commission the construction of a rear single storey kitchen extension and a double garage.I advertised the two jobs separately, but ideally I always anticipated that the builder of the first project would continue to the next, with a competitive price being submitted for the combined contract. Jay submitted his quote for the rear extension and took the time to become familiar with the overall renovation project and discussed material options etc. From our initial meeting I could tell Jay was extremely confident in his ability and he came across extremely professional and helpful at all times.After awarding Jay the contract, he arrived on time and immediately set to work, I was immediately satisfied that his confidence was backed up by his competency. He worked will alacrity and independently at all times, always with good daily output. His brickwork is extremely neat and he is fast – he has the balance right in my opinion. He has excellent trade contacts and was able to complete the entire extension without delay. He completed the extension within the original programme and given the excellent standard he achieved, I awarded him the double garage project.Similarly, Jay completed the double garage on time and slightly under my estimate, which was good. He is brilliant to work with and will go out of his way to assist at all times, even with someone as particular as me.I would not hesitate to employ Jay again on my future projects and I would certainly not hesitate to recommend him to others. Overall he is an exceptionally genuine, honest, hard working, young man with excellent building and organisational skills. His forward planning is brilliant, avoiding unproductive time spent obtaining materials / products. Steve Knott

After contacting several builders in regard to pointing work on our property, we chose Jay as he was very reasonably priced and told us exactly what work needed carrying out. When he undertook the work we found him to be polite, courteous, conscientious and very adapting to what we required. He was always punctual, turning up early in the morning before we left for work. The work he carried out was exactly as we required and was to a very high standard. We would not hesitate to use Jay’s services in the future for any building work. Mr. N. Wilson

Jay completed repointing work to the front and rear of the properly along with creating new front and rear door steps to make access easier. He was very prompt with his quotation and flexible with when he could start work. He was always very polite and approachable to ask advice about different aspects of the job, always arrived on time and left everywhere tidy each day I would have no hesitation recommending him to friend and family. Thanks for a job well done. Sarah Dunne

Jc completed some foundation work for me on what’s soon to be an office, it included, underpinning, forming steel reinforcements and concreting I’m having him back to do more work for us. He’s superb, I cant fault him. The guy knows his stuff, he turned up on time. The quality of his work is excellent, he’s better than most other builders I’ve used. Jc’s price is reasonable too, I’d be happy to recommend him to anyone.

I’ve been very happy with the work JC has done for me on, he helped out on a property I was fixing up – JC did all the plastering and fitted the new kitchen, including ripping out the old one. He’s absolutely faultless, that’s why i use him. JC is well mannered and turns up on time. The quality of work was absolutely brilliant. I’ve used quite a few tradesmen in my time, but JC is tops. His quotes are competitive and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to get work done. Westley Allcock

We chose to go with Jay (LJA consruction)as we found him very down to earth and easy to speak to,he went through lots of different ideas of what we could do with the extention and helped us choose the materials we wanted to give the look we were after. He always turned up on time and provided continuous updates daily of the progress so far.Jay was very focused on our needs and expectations, ensuring communication existed at all times. During this project he has endeavoured from day one to get the job finished, this is extremely important when dealing with deadlines, in our case we had twins on the way and need the extention completed with kitchen fitted prior to their arrival.The quality of the workmanship is of a very high standard and it is clear to see he only uses the very best tradesman of which we used for various other jobs since the completion of the extention.Jay also communicated with neighbours reguarding any deliveries etc that would have a tempory impact on the street.Jay and his team always left the property and grounds in a clean and tidy manner at the end of each working day. We have no hesitation in recommending Jay and his team to anyone looking to have any kind of building work carried out and we would certainly use him again for any further projects.
