Bathrooms renovations in Goodmayes, Ilford, Essex

April 2013

This is a report of my experience employing Janbuild Company. I was delighted with the service and quality provided at a reasonable price, on time and with an excellent finish, so much so I have already made recommendations to personal friends and my company.It was refreshing to be able to depend on these builders keeping to time, arriving at the declared time, clearing up diligently at the end of each day. They carried out the renovation of two bathrooms including some structural alterations and at times I felt they were more particular to gain excellence with the finished product than even I was myself! I would not hesitate to recommend them both in terms of the quality of work, reasonableness of price and the diligence and innovative suggestions all geared to produce a finished product that they were as pleased with themselves. They took real pride in their work and in pleasing me as their client. I found the communication with them very pleasant and a very ready willingness to accommodate the things that I wanted.

Kitchen Refurbishment in Hackney

February 2013

Jan came recommended by friends so we were able to see the quality of his work and we were happy with the quote he gave us. We had wanted to strip out the whole kitchen and start again for a long time and once Jan was involved it was great to see the project taking shape. The project involved demolition, plastering, joinery, plumbing and electrical works all of which were arranged and delivered by Jan to a high standard. Jan and his team were punctual, reliable and considerate and we found Jan to be helpful and responsive to our concerns throughout the process. We found his pricing to be realistic and were impressed with his attention to detail. We are really pleased with our new kitchen and would highly recommend Janbuild.

Downstairs bathroom and bespoke fitted-in cupboard

June 2012

We needed to get a bathroom and cupboard fitted-in at home, over a very tight timeframe. Jan and his team were prompt to start work, and managed to complete the project to a high standard within the deadline. I found that Jan's attitude was to do the work to a high quality standard that he could be proud of. He went out of his way to come up with smart solutions to upcoming issues, rather than go for what was easiest. I would highly recommend him for building work.

External rendering, roof repair & garden decking in Ilford, Essex

October 2011

Jan's quality of work and attention to detail was impressive. He doesn't like to do a job that he's not proud of which means he has an internal driver for quality. He was always turned up when he said he would, was on time and communicated well about the progress of the job. He cleared up well, even leaving the area more tidy than it was when he arrived. We were pleased with his work and quickly found he was a trust worthy worker. In short, he is a pleasure to work with and we have already recommended him to friends.

Kitchen pre-install (Kitchen Fitting) in Wanstead, East London

August 2011

Jan with his team did a fantastic job, I presented him with a tight deadline..to complete the renovation of our old kitchen into a new clean space ready for the units. Work undertaken - removing 3 walls worth of old mortar, new plasterboard walls, new plasterwork on all walls and ceiling. New electric circuit, re-directing the waste pipes ready for DW,WM, sink etc. Knocking out outside wall and fitting 6ft bi-folding doors, brickwork and pointing. Jan covered all the basics building work and organised all additional services plumber, electrician etc. Everyone was polite, friendly and worked so so hard. They worked late and into the weekend. Every hour was used to ensure the job was completed on time with a high quality finish. I cannot recommend Janbuild highly enough, trustworthy, friendly, helpful, giving full explanations and advising where appropriate. I will not be looking anywhere else for a builder...I just need to find the money for our next renovation project.

Complete House Renovation in Balham, London

June 2011

Janbuild have recently completed a house renovation project for us. The work included internal and external decoration, carpentry, rendering, plastering, tiling and flooring. I am delighted to say that the work has been completed to a high standard and within budget. Jan and his team are extremely dedicated, professional and conscientious. Like any building project, we encountered problems but Jan always worked hard to resolve issues and returned promptly to deal with snags or outstanding matters. Jan and his team were reliable, honest, trustworthy and a pleasure to work with. My children were very upset when the work was completed and it was time for them to leave! I thoroughly recommend Janbuild and would definitely use them again in the future.

I have no hesitation whatsoever recommending Jan. I found Jan easy to deal with and totally trustworthy, in fact he undertook some of the work whilst we were away in New Zealand. Returned to find a clean and tidy house with all the jobs done to a high standard. Am now planning another 'to do list'!

Living Room Renovation and Bathroom Fitting in Belsize Park, London

March 2010

Thank you for everything you have done in my property. I was keen on you doing the job as I had been so impressed with the interesting design and materials you had used in another job. Along with your caring attitude and interest in working to a high standard, you embraced problems whole heartedly and worked with diligence.
It was always pleasing to discuss with you your design ideas. I really appreciated that you had a vision of what it could be and offered solutions that made good sense. In the midst of my busy life I was able to trust entirely in your judgment and your work.
So, once again, thank you.

Roof re-slating in Earlsfield, London

Before the bad weather started (December 2009) I instructed Jan to completely re-slate the roof of my property (back and front).
I am very satisfied with the workmanship and the manner in which all the work was carried out. I would recommend Jan to anyone.
Thank you kindly for your help and consideration.

Carpentry in Belsize Park, London

September 2009

I met Jan through friend's introduction. He came over to inspect my property and gave me realistic assessment as to what could be done for what sorts of budgets. We agreed on the works and I have to say that I never regretted it since. Jan suggested complete layout and design of furniture, interior lighting , colours etc. The work conducted was done thoroughly and with attention to details. For me it could hardly be any better as I am very busy at work, my interaction was kept to real minimum.
