I'd like to recommend Kevin from Y and J Builders for building projects you have at home. My reasons are:

1) he showed fantastic attention to detail and did an absolutely brilliant job to extend and renovate our very old and ramshackle Victorian terrace kitchen. Through Kevin's determination and vision, we have a totally transformed space, and he has had to deal with knocking down supporting walls, putting in new foundations, joists, asbestos removal, replacing lead pipework etc. to make it a top quality job. He also made our garden a far more useable space, which hadn't been part of our original thinking, but it is fantastic and above and beyond what we'd expected. Nothing has fazed him or his team, and he very much demonstrated a 'can do' attitude to our work which we initially thought would be a small project, but turned into something far more complex owing to structural deficiencies in our existing house. He is meticulous, which has also meant the job taking longer, but has definitely been worth it.

2) great communication with us throughout the job from start to finish.

3) hardworking - Kevin was often here well into the evenings and weekends to get the work done.

4) considerate - to our neighbours and our personal space. We have a young child and baby on the way and Kevin did everything he could within the circumstances to accommodate our needs.

5) reliable and trustworthy - Kevin has been at pains to ensure we have been happy with the work, well after we paid our final instalment, which to me is a very good sign.

His team have also been great, top notch decorator and various other contractors whom he works with. Overall, if you want a personal service, with a highly skilled and knowledgeable builder with a great attention to detail and appreciation for quality, we'd recommend Kevin. Details below:

I recommend Kevin and his team. I found them to be personable, professional and flexible and with a genuine sense of pride in the work. They obviously have a lot of experience in the trade, and are generous with sharing helpful tips and ideas in a diplomatic way. Would definitely have them back for further work in the future.
