    I called on John at short notice and once again he responded in his normal friendly and efficient manner. His work is always of the highest quality and carried out in a timely way. John is very experienced and can carry out a variety of tasks. On this occasion he assembled table and chairs after I had been let down by a well known retailer.

    10Verified Review

    John did a fantastic job painting a room (in 2 colors), repairing the celling and hanging some wall sconces. He came when he said he was going to, worked full days and even got it done a day early. He knew we had carpeting being installed and wanted to finish the room in time, which he did. We are thoroughly pleased with the work and highly recommend John and J.A. Builders.

  • Rebuilding 3 walls (one of which in our pond), a bridge and a overflow

    10Verified Review

    John is an extremely skilled and knowledgeable professional. He has charged us very fair prices for the excellent work he carried out in our garden. He has rebuild and fortified 3 large brick walls using steel and concrete foundations, one of these walls was inside our pond. John and his team have also rebuilt a steel and wooden bridge over our stream; they also dug up and cemented an overflow from the river to our pond. We are very pleased with his fabulous craftsmanship, his dedication and his super friendly and kind attitude throughout the time he has been here with us.
