Feedback for C.J Builders

Chris was an absolute star from start to finish. As a keen DIYer, just getting quotes in at the beginning was stressful enough, but Chris made it easy and uncomplicated. He always has smart soutions to the problems that inevitably come up, and clearly has a wide range of knowledge. He and his team also uncovered some dangerous electrics that I would never have known about, and got that sorted out no problem. Also did various other "easy" (easy for him maybe) extra bits along the way, where we could spare the resource. But we were kept well informed throughout of everything, and all the work was done to a high standard. Pleasant, fair, and very reasonable chap. What more could you ask for. We would definitely ask him to come back again in the future, if he'd be willing. Thanks Chris and team!!
