  • Repair

    Joe came out to give us a quote on repairing our leaky roof, He was the 1st guy to contact us and when he arrived he seemed like a real genuine bloke and new what he was talking about, i even joked can you do it now Joe!! Seemed like a fair price too..

  • Remove old tiled fireplace

    Joe did a great job removing my old fireplace and boarding around inside the opening. He was very careful not to make any more mess than absolutely necessary even climbing in and out of the window rather than walking across the hall carpet! He was quick clearing a large volume of soot and rubble and boarding the opening in a day. Having previously had another fireplace removed I was expecting a lot of mess. The other company got soot everywhere including up the walls. I was amazed how little mess Joe made! There was very little for me to clean up afterward which certainly wasn’t the case with the other company. On the strength of that alone I would highly recommend Joe... he was so careful and tidy! If I had more fireplaces to remove Joe is the person I would call.

  • Brick fireplace!

    Hired Joe R Powers to dismantle an old fireplace and reposition the duel fuel stove and to replaster the chimney breast. The first day after starting work he disappeared for nearly three hours, said he was going to Wicks for a spare part. I phoned his mobile to see where he was and he said he was on his way back.... with to my astonishment children in the car! They stayed in the car while he got back on with the job. This is absolutely wrong! My duel fuel fire was put back into place with one of the feet not sat properly on the tile, the chimney flue is slightly tilted, these are things you notice afterwards. Also we ‘paid’ him up front to fit a floating shelf and a hearth which we were to buy and to get him to fit them but we had completely forgot about it until we got another firm to do it. I have been emailing him asking him to reimburse us the monies owed to us but have had one reply saying he would get back to me and that’s all and that was in September. I have asked him not to come to the house (not that he has offered to) because of my husbands ill health as I don’t want him upset. I have taking photographs of each stage of his work and have told him this. And I just hope he doesn’t take advantage of another older couple like he has with us!

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    I have used Joe now for several jobs on both my home and my parents home, with ongoing work still in progress. After many hours of searching I am pleased to be able to recommend Joe as a man who takes the time and care needed to complete a job to the highest standards. A job that will last, because it has been done correctly first time. As I tell my friends and colleagues, the quote you get from Joe may not be the cheapest put forward, but when you take into account the time and effort put in it is very fair, and the work will last, unlike many who may charge less but then you have to keep on repeating the same job over and over again. So far I have had roof work done both at my home and my parents, a new car porch built for my parents and at the moment I am looking to have some brickwork repairs done to my property to resolve the damage to the lower bricks which due to age and the effects of frost are splitting. I have no hesitation in recommending J R P Builders and as far as I am now concerned, Joe is the only number I have saved into my contacts list for maintenance work. I use his services every time now without the need to search round for alternative quotes.
