    The job included the removal of a small chimney stack from the bathroom, and installation of gallows brackets in the loft.

  • Wall constructs

  • Internal Wall repair work

  • Removal of internal wall

    One word "Fantastic"! Jimmy and the team were amazing. Jimmy removed an internal wall adjoining the kitchen and dining room to open the space up. He also changed the layout, added a loo and utility room. We made changes a long the way which at times must have been very frustrating however they just got on with it and actually brought lots of ideas that worked better than our original plans. I cant express how fantastic they were from Jimmy to James, Alan the electrician and Tony the plumber, amazing.
    I would recommend Jimmy and his team completely. They were extremely competent, knowledgeable and very honest. They have done an amazing job which actually exceeded our expectations, my kitchen diner is beautiful, we love it and its all thanks to Jimmy & co.
    Would have him back anytime, we have actually asked him to complete our new shower room, which says it all.
    Jimmy and his team are a lovely bunch of fellas, true gentlemen which is very important.
    Cant express how fantastic they were and they came in on budget and on time, even with our many changes a long the way.
    If you are looking for a builder who is professional and trustworthy Jimmy & Co are the go to.
    They even looked after our dogs when they were on site and we couldn't get time away from work.
    Just amazing what more can I say!

  • False ceiling installation

    Jimmy was great.
    We were stuck and he was able to help us out at very short notice and give us a very reasonable quote.
    Work was done quickly to our tight schedule and he even came back to readjust some parts after we hadn't given him the right measurements.
    Highly recommended. Really pleased with the work.

  • installation of new waste stack

    Jimmy took on a drainage job that other contractors were reluctant to attempt. He was knowledgeable on regs and what we could do, very reliable – called and showed up when he said he would – and did a great job with less disruption/digging than I expected. He came back afterwards to finish off, leaving a very neat patch where the work had been done. We’re very happy with the job and have subsequently asked him to give us a quote for a full bathroom install.

  • Needed urgently

    Jimmy and tony were Very reliable

  • Convert understairs cupboard to a toilet

    It was an urgent job for reasons of my elderly mother’s ill health and Jimmy turned up to quote when he said he would and started work just 3 days later, having arranged with his next client to defer their job by a few days given our circumstances. He was really pleasant guy and very considerate with my mother. It’s not possible to build without making noise but Jimmy sure gave it a try and also went the long way round to the garage to minimise drafts for her. He worked the Saturday and even took the cistern internal mechanism home with him to get it ready there to get the job finished more quickly. In the end some of the work wasn’t needed and Jimmy reduced the price accordingly. I’d definitely ask him again.

  • Reconfiguration of kitchen/dining room

    I have no hesitation on recommending JBC Building Services. From the start, they were reliable, hard-working and methodical in their approach to the job, which was to reconfigure my kitchen and dining areas into a kitchen dining room. This meant removing an existing wall and chimney breast which is a dusty and messy process. Jimmy and his co-workers quickly and efficiently removed the debris and replastered the walls to a fine finish. Every evening they tidied up after their day’s hard work, which enabled me to get access to the sink and appliances throughout the process.
    I found JBC very pleasant and good-humoured, which made a trying situation much more manageable. As stated above, I would readily recommend JBC Building Services for any work and feel pleased to have found a good and decent builder to work with.

  • Quote for building works after home survey

    As first time buyers we received a homebuyers report identifying a long list of potential defects to the house we wanted to buy. The report could have easily put us off proceeding with the sale but Jimmy kindly came out and walked around with us providing rough estimates and a top end overall figure to get the house up to a habitable state.

    It was really helpful and made us realise that there is very little that isn't fixable with this house.

    After meeting Jimmy, coupled with the reviews on this site, we would be confident in offering this really nice fella first dibs on any work that needs doing. Whenever that may be..?

    Thanks again Jimmy! Your time was really appreciated.
