To whom it may concern.
I used J & S Builders in September 2012 to replace
the whole roof of my house, construct a roof for my porch
and paint the exterior of my house.
The work was carried out quickly, very efficiently and
to a high standard. The staff were very friendly and hard
working. Their workmanship was excellent and they were very
neat and tidy whilst carrying out their work.
The work was carried out on schedule despite the poor weather
conditions at the time.
My house now looks much better now that the new roofs have
been completed and the walls painted. There was no need
to call the company back to do any alterations as the work
was done properly first time.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this company
to any of my friends.

I asked J & S Builders to provide me with an estimate
for converting my garage into a sitting room, converting
a large utility room into a smaller utility room plus shower
room, and changing a flat roof to a pitched roof. I was
given a competitive price for the job.
The workers were friendly and polite at all times and took
the time to explain to me what was happening at each stage
of the works. I was very impressed with the quality of workmanship
by J & S Builders.
Although Stephen was not on site every day his personal
attention to detail was impressive. He made sure doors,
handles, glass etc all matched existing. Stephen also liaised
with the Council's Building Standards section as and when
The site was left safe and tidy every day of the 8 week
I am delighted with the finished job and wouldn't hesitate
to contact J & S Builders for any future work and would
definitely recommend them.

Stephen Burke, J&S Builders, co-ordinated the building
of our garage in Maybole. Communication with Stephen was
very good, phoning or emailing when he said he would and
dealing with any queries we had quickly.
Although Stephen didn't work on the site much the trades
people he sent were first class, in particular the bricklayers,
the guys who poured the concrete base, the roofers and the
plasterers. We dug the foundations, which Stephen checked,
and then everything else was done by Stephen's contractors/employees.
The build was scheduled to start in January, but this being
the worst winter for a long time there were delays which
could not have been prevented (snow and hard frost). It
took around 7 or 8 weeks from the start of the job to the
The site was tidy and when the job was finished it was
cleared of all rubbish. We have applied for the completion
certificate but as yet we have had no communication from
The price was competitive and the agreed price was what
we paid, no hidden extras.
All in all a job well done and satisfied customers who
would certainly make Stephen the first port of call for
any future work.

Mr Stephen Burke: J & S Builders
Mr Stephen Burke and his team have now carried out several
projects on our home since October 2009.
This included remedial work on our chimney, extensive insulation
work, joinery, plastering and the installation of underfloor
heating in one room along with the laying of solid wood
and tiled floors.
Throughout this process I have found Stephen and his team,
punctual, reliable and hardworking. Importantly, they always
tidy up at the end of the day.
As with many complex renovations, the project evolved as
it went forward. Throughout the process I found Stephen
and David approachable and keen to take trouble to get our
I have no hesitation in recommending this company, regardless
of the nature or scale of building project.

J & S Builders carried out the work done at the
this address. All aspects of the job were explained to myself
and my wife by Steven Burke. All work was completed when
we were told it would be. We both found Steven and his colleagues
very approachable and very accommodating. They arrived every
morning and were never late. They were very professional
and tidy around the house. At the end of everyday they tidied
up after themselves and hoovered up any mess made. The work
carried out in the house was to a very high standard.
Any further work we require at the above address, I will
not hesitate to contact J&S Builders as my wife and
myself were both very impressed with the overall work carried
out and the costings of the job.

going on in our home and with a busy family you managed
to "fit in" with us all and it was not unbearable
- even when the roof was off!
After Sales Service
Given all the work that was undertaken, we have
only had to call on Stephen twice, on both occasions he
was there the same day to check out the problem and rectified
the issues within 2 working days.
We continue to call on Stephen & his team for
other jobs around our home, big & small.
John & I would have no problem recommending Stephen

J & S Builders
I recently used J & S Builders for the installation
of an internal door leading through to the integral garage,
and have no hesitation in recommending them for all type
of building work. In general they provided excellent value
for money for the following reasons:
- Prior to commencement of the job, the staff took time
to explain all that the work would entail.
- The price for the job was very competitive.
- The employees arrived promptly at the agreed time and
- The workmanship was first class with all rubbish removed
from the house.
- The job was completed within the timescale.
- The employees were polite at all times.
- A courtesy visit was made by one of the Directors on
completion of the work to ensure that I was satisfied
with all aspects of the job.
- Building Standards were happy with the quality of the
work and issued the relevant completion certificate.
