We employed Jeff and his large number of staff, bricklayers – Ian and Simon whose bricklaying was top class, all the plasterers which there were far too many to remember all their names, main one was Mike, absolutely super glass finish to all the plastering, sparky Adam and his team, who did a super job, albeit always left a mess L, Matt the plumber who was very helpful, gave a lot of advice and again, workmanship was extremely high. Tony the joiner who has took on other jobs, again super, Mark the labourer and there were also some extremely polite young apprentices who worked their socks off. We had a two floor extension, which comprised of knocking down internal walls and a chimney, rebuilding an existing outside wall, extending out and over, building over a garage to make a new bedroom, which also had Juliette balcony with patio doors. Conversion of an existing bedroom to en-suite, knocking down an airing cupboard to make existing bathroom larger. Velux windows, patio and bi-folding doors, oh and nearly forgot a utility room Jeff’s price was very reasonable compared to some other quotes, however his workmanship, project management etc was of an extremely high standard, found Jeff and all of his workers very friendly, great to talk to, approachable and they were always polite and apart from the sparkies, always tidied up after them All the work was finished practically within timescale promised (bearing in mind we had the work done over one of the worse winters ever), and trust me, it was very fast compared to some other extensions I’ve seen being built I would highly recommend Jeff and his team, so much so that my daughter is going to be using him next year for an extension. As detailed above, workmanship on all levels, was of a very high standard and absolutely everyone was extremely professional and polite Word of advice, buy a tea urn J

Jeff Stokes builders undertook a new side and rear extension of my property in early 2017. The work included demolition of an existing garage, kitchen and utility room and the construction of a new kitchen, utility room, downstairs W/C and office space. The work was completed within a 12 week period from commencent on site which was ahead of the planned schedule and was undertaken in a professional manner. Lots of various trades were employed on the job and the logistics and planning of the work was exceptional, the disruption caused to the rest of the house was minimal. My wife was expecting our first baby in the April of 2017 and we needed a fully functioning kitchen by this time and Jeff delivered on his commitment and much more. The end product was beyond our expectations the construction work is truly amazing and the finishing touches recommended by the builder really add to what was already a fantastic job. I would recommend Jeff Stokes builders to anybody and please feel free to contact me for a Personnal reference.

We had had a number of quotes from different builders since obtaining our planning permission for a two-storey side & rear extension. We had almost made up our mind, but whilst we were still deliberating, Jeff started an extension opposite my place of work. As the work progressed I was so impressed with the speed and quality of work that we decided to ask him to quote for ours. We knew as soon as we met him that we had found our builder. From the first day to the last, everything went to plan. Jeff gave us daily updates on the progression of the work and any potential problems were solved before they happened. Being a typical woman, I changed my mind on a number of things as the build progressed, but nothing was too much trouble. All the lads were a pleasure to have in my home - they worked extremely hard from dawn to dusk (sometimes even on a Sunday if the build required them to!) and the quality of their workmanship is evident in the overall finish. They did make a huge mess - but Jeff had prepared us for this and in reality it wasn't actually as bad as I had anticipated - they tidied up after themselves every day and, when the build was finished, apart from a few bald patches on the lawn, you wouldn't have known they'd been there. We had a very small 'snagging' list which was dealt with quickly and efficiently. Jeff has assured us that if we have any further snagging issues they will be resolved. I have complete faith in him. Overall we are very pleased with our extension which was completed quickly, to a high standard and at a competitive price. I would not hesitate to recommend Jeff and his team to anyone. Cheers Jeff!" I hope this is OK - just cut and paste what you want and let me know if you need anything else

Jeff completed a two storey extension and kitchen refurbishment on my home between Nov 2015 and Feb 2016. When we decided to embark on the project we were obviously nervous as it represented a significant amount of money to spend and we don't have any building experience. We spoke to six highly recommended builders but from the first meeting Jeff impressed us, both with his vast experience in similar projects and the way he clearly explained to us how the build would proceed. When the six quotes came in, we were expecting Jeff to be the most expensive but we were pleasantly surprised to see that his was one of the lowest. Even better, he could start work with the next two weeks, which immediately put us months ahead of our original schedule. Jeff and his team made great progress from the very beginning. They started on time and completed the initial build quickly (in the face of some terrible weather), even working on Saturdays. Throughout the work, Jeff was constantly in touch with us and responded to our questions extremely quickly. Any changes from the original plans were discussed clearly with us and all additional costs were explained at the time. This excellent communication made the project much less stressful than we had imagined. In particular, Jeff had to cope with us making late changes to the kitchen design. The work was completed to a high standard and we were extremely impressed with the results. I would definitely recommend Jeff to others and indeed I already have.
