i.w.j building and maintenance

  • knock through wall, put in french doors, cupboard doors

    Ian and team were very friendly, and helpful with some additional work that needed doing . They completed the job well. There was a delay with the french doors so the work took longer than expected, but otherwise I was a happy customer and would hire them again.

  • Load bearing internal wall removal.

    Ian and Andy are great. We were working away from home while the work was being done. They dealt with the council and structural engineer. So we didn't have to worry about time off. Really pleased with the job they did. We would recommend them to friends and family. Thank you Ian, Gary and Team.

  • Demolition of out building

    The work to be done was the demolition of an out building in my garden built during the Second World War as a shelter. It had a reinforced roof and thick walls. Obviously this was extremely well built to suit its purpose ( it wasn't the 4 to 1 mortar mix used for buildings today. The work was done very professionally and all the rubble cleared away. I would certainly recommend Ian for any work to be done and for future work I may need doing. Excellent

  • Dismantle and Remove Single Concrete Garage

    We hired iwj to dismantle and remove a prefabricated concrete garage. Polite and friendly Ian came round one evening to provide a quote and was able to start work very quickly. The work was completed to a high standard and the site was left neat and tidy. The collection by a sub contractor was delayed however this was quickly resolved. I would have no hesitation in using iwj again or recommeding them to others.

  • retaining wall replaced and decking

    I had a few quotes in before deciding to go with Ian's company and he was very competitive with his prices and I felt that I could be comfortable working with him. He communicated about the work in an efficient and knowledgeable way.
    He was very accommodating in doing the work in a time that was convenient to us.
    The work on the wall was completed to a high standard and he made suggestions about how to finish off the steps and also suggested a ledge on the wall that has definitely contributed to the overall look that our patio will have when that is completed. We are definitely having Ian come back to do our patio as well. His team also needs mentioning as they worked extremely hard and were very pleasant to have around. They were all punctual and polite.
    In our opinion Ian is trustworthy and a reliable person and we would not hesitate to recommend his work to anyone.

  • Dismantle & Remove Concrete Garage

    IWJ did a great job,they dismantled and removed our old concrete garage leaving the site tidy
    They were very friendly and helpful when we had any queries.
    I would strongly recommend them to anyone considering having building work undertaken.

  • Remove internal load bearing wall

    Ian and his team did a fantastic job on my house.
    I had 3 big jobs that they worked on:
    1) Remove load bearing wall, inserting steel beam, add fireproofing, firedoor, extend electrics and plaster.
    2) Convert 2 cupboards into a shower/wc - including new external soil stack; underground drain changes; new shower+basin+wc; electrics; plumbing and lots of plastering
    3) Remove a corner chimney, adding beam and hiding soil pipes under floor.

    I chose Ian back in Jan, and was delighted that he stuck to my target start date in July.
    The team worked on all 3 jobs at the same time. I was very impressed with their skill, speed and determination to tackle all challenges (such as the complex modification of joists to enable long soil pipes to go under floor and later correcting leaks from a mispositioned shower door.)

    We now have a lovely extended kitchen and a great new internal shower/wc - without needing a dreaded saniflow.

    Ian is very trustworthy, hardworking, keeps in good contact and is keen to ensure the customer is completely satisfied. He also employs some good tradesmen - especially the plasterer and electrician.

    I highly recommend Ian and team; and hope they will return next year to tackle a few more challenges.

  • Parking space & garden refresh + shed build & fencing

    We hired Andy and Ian for our gardening job early this summer and were very pleased with the work they did. Within the space of 6 days our outside space was completely transformed and has added features to it that we make use of on a daily basis.

    As well as adding value to the property we have been able to enjoy the garden throughout the summer; something we certainly weren't able to do before.

    All work was finished to a high standard and I’d have no hesitation in recommending the guys to anyone who wanted outside work doing.

  • Baby's Nursery Interior Insulation

    Ian and his team worked tirelessly and efficiently to get the job done. His associate electrician, plumber and plasterer were equally good and professional and we were thrilled at both the attention to detail and finish quality of the work at a very reasonable price. We would certainly recommend I.w.j. Building and maintenance and hope to use their services again.

  • Remove Old Garage Window and Brick Up Hole

    Ian did a great job of removing our old rotten garage window and bricking up the hole. He was professional and friendly and his quote was very reasonable. I would recommend him to others.

  • Steel beam fitter

    Great service. Quick quotes, professional job, great communications. Overall great!
    Thanks Ian

  • Garden wall needs repointing.

    A few people came round to provide quotes for the wall pointing job but Ian was by far away the best at communicating about the work that needed doing. He also provided a really competitive quote.
    After I decided to hire Ian he he was flexible about doing the work at a convenient time for me. The work on the wall was completed to a high standard.
    My general impression is that Ian is a trustworthy guy and I am in discussion with him regarding some more work that I need doing on the house.

  • Removal of two chimney breasts

    Ian and Andrew have done a great job for us on the removal of our chimney. The work has been carried out to a high standard and was done on time at a time that suited us.

    Ian and Andrew were great from the first time they came round, offering advice and thoughts on solutions for our job. The cost was good value and we would absolutely recommend anyone to use the guys.


  • Demolish and clear a garage. Make secure the site.

    A very nice job. Ian was great to deal with; friendly, easy to contact and turned up when he said he would. He and his colleagues worked quickly and caused no bother at all. He understood that we wanted a neat and tidy job, and just got on with it. Final price was exactly the price quoted. We're delighted with the finished result and would definitely use them again.

  • Garden Wall

    Ian and Andy were efficant and quick. I am very happy with the quality of their work and look forward to working with them again


  • Internal Wall Removal

    Job completed as agreed. It took longer than anticipated because of delays getting building control approval, but overall I was happy with the quality of the work done. Ian and his team were polite and kept us informed as to when the work would be completed, and the reasons for the delays. Compared to others, I was impressed with how tidy they kept the house during the work. I have used several different builders over the last 5 years and I think this team was the best we have used so far. I would definitely use them again.

  • Load bearing wall removal + beam

    Ian, Andy and Nigel knocked through between 2 rooms and put in a steel supporting beam. They plastered the walls smoothly afterwards and although there was lots of dust due to the work, they did their best to clean up at the end of each day. No complaints at all. Just really pleasant people to have around. They also waterproofed a leaking conservatory roof where it joined to the house. I'd confidently recommend them.

  • New side to boundary wall

    Ian and Andy built my side boundary wall and the result is better than I expected. The bricks are perfectly laid and were sourced to match the existing front wall ones. It's an amazing job and I'm very, very pleased. They are both extremely nice people whom I got along with very well and they were a pleasure to have around.

  • Replace WC

    Great job done at a great price. Reliable and efficient. Will definitely use again. Thanks

  • Re-plaster around a doorway

    Really good job, managed to blend new plaster into an existing plastered area seamlessly, once painted no one will ever know the doorway was once bigger!! Very pleased and excellent price. Will be keeping his number for further work and would recommend to a friend.

  • landscaping of 7.5m wide by 12.5m long garden

    Garden now looks as I've always wanted it.

  • Extend my kitchen and new porch

    Ian and his team carried out an excellent job. Ian and his team are extremely polite, helpful and works to exact timescales. The work he carried out was completed to a very high standard. I have other building jobs which I need done and will not hesitate to contact Ian to carry out the work. I had quite a few quotes from Tradesmen and no-one came near to what Ian quoted me. I cannot express enough how professional Ian and his team are. Thank you

    Ian turned up on time and he was extremely polite and courteous. He did an excellent job for a very reasonable price. I would definitely use him again and would recommend him to others. Ian will do well with his future business plans.

  • Patio, raised beds and walling

    Ian and his team were an absolute delight! I can't praise them highly enough. Puntual, polite, hardworking and a joy to have working at home. So good were they in fact, that the job extended twice and now has included a garden pah and fencing. I would thoroughly recommend Ian to everyone I know and definitely ask him to work with us again. A complete star!
