jd kent

At last a reliable honest hard working builder. I always turn up and see the job through personally to the end, to get the job done to both my and your high standards. I always stay on one job at a time as not to slow the project down. A good job at a fair price.

  • Wrap around extension

    We hired Jonathan to build and project manage our wrap around extension at the beginning of the year. During the build we made many changes to the original plans with some being suggested by Jon himself. Some of the big changes did require an extra cost to the original quote but these were agreed to at the time and stuck to.. All the other changes were done within the original quote. Jon and Mark turned up every day on time and even weekends and bank holidays to bring the project in on time.
    I would be more than happy to employ Jon again and would recommend him to anybody who is looking for builder in the Chorley area. Many thanks again Jon. Kieron.

  • repointing brickwork

    Work carried out to a high standard. Would use again for future projects.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    We first used Jonathan Kent to carry out some internal modifications -replacing 2 bedrooms with 3, and moving a bathroom. We were so impressed by his work we subsequently used him to carry out some modifications on a sun lounge - replacing windows and doors, improving insulation, and roof repairs. In all aspects we have found his work to be of the highest quality. We have found him and all the tradesmen he emplys/contracts to be skilled, reliable, trustworthy, and fully committed to producing a high quality product. His prices are also competitive, with no nasty shocks for the 'extras' we requested as the projects progressed. I will certainly use Jonathan Kent again and would recommend him wholeheartedly.
