  • Brick up external door

    James came on time and gave a detailed quote. He kept me updated on what time he would be here to do the job, he cleaned up after he had finished the job too. Very happy with his work and would recommend him to anybody who needed him

  • Double-skined garden wall.

    I have nothing but praise to say for the way James McDonagh handled this job. James attended when I first asked for a quote but it was his attitude and professionalism which convince me to ask him to do the job. However problems between myself and the neighbours caused excessive delays and eventually the job could not be completed. James kept in touch with me throughout the process of many, many months of delay and never gave up trying to assist me to get the job done. I would recommend James to anyone wanting building work done and I would certainly ask him in the future.

  • Small wall with windows

    James and his team were brilliant from start to finish. Reasonably priced and excellent workmanship.

    I had my garage conversion done and wanted to replicate the design of the existing property on this conversion and James delivered, the end result looks as if its been there since it was built.

    They started promptly at 8am and grafted until end of the day, 3 days later and job complete as planned. James even helped out on another small job as we had some leftover material for free.

    Highly recommended and all positive from me. Definitely will be using this company again.
