We first contacted JD Kent after receiving several verbal recommendations from previous clients that Jonathan had done work for.

Initially we asked for a quote on a small extension, however, we were also having new windows and doors which Jonathan was happy to quote for.  The quote was received within a few days and was very competitive. We accepted the proposal and work began a week later.

During the building work changes were made to the orginal proposal which the team were very happy to accommodate, much to our pleasure

All the work has now been completed and we are so pleased with the end result.  Not only were the team so professional but the sub contractors Jonathan used were also very professional and we would highly recommended them.

Overall we would recommend him to anyone for a complete building package.  (shares in Nescafe will be needed J )

“a professional service was received throughout the building of our garage conversion.   Jon Kent and his team were not only proficient and skilled at their work, but also adopted a friendly and courteous manner.  I am delighted with the work they have done, from start to finish, and would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone”

I recently had occasion to employ J D Kent Building Services for some work at home, including the creation of a utility room, building out the front of our garage, brickwork, building, joinery, electrical work and plumbing.  I had selected two builders to request quotes, and although the prices were sililar, selected J D Kent based upon the professional attitude of John Kent  When arriving for a quote, John also brought photographic examples of other works completed and offered references if required.

Immediately after selecting J D Kent we were kept informed of the timescale for commencement of works, and J D Kent commenced when they said they would.  Despite the fact that the works caused disruption to the family home, and access was required there were never any issues with the company’s workforce entering and leaving our property, whether we were in or at work.  The two members of the team who attended on site with John were pleasant, courteous and cleaned up at the end of each working day.

I found communication with John very easy, and any amends to the programme of works were discussed openly, and alternatives advised by John if necessary.  The work executed by John and his team, along with his professional sub-contractors was to a high standard, and executed to the timescale provided.

I would have no hesitation in recommending J D Kent Building Services to friends, family or colleagues, as stated earlier the work was completed to a high standard, with the minimum of disruption to our home.  Even if John was not on site, and sub-contractors were undertaking work, John always called in at the end of the day to inspect works and check that we were satisfied

I recently – late 2010 – used Jon Kent’s building company to build a pair of random stone entrance walls and gate piers and to install the gates. I am extremely pleased with the results. I was happy with the professional approach of Jon and his workers. Jon consistently impressed by giving advice and guidance on both technical and design issues which cropped up both before and during the build and so have no hesitation in recommending Jon’s building company.

Jon Kent completed a two story wrap around extension for us. He was extremely reliable turning up on time everyday without being chased. He worked in all weathers, even asking to use the chiminea to melt the ice off the site!! He never let us down. He came in on budget and kept us informed throughout the build.

The people who worked with him were equally hardworking and reliable.  Jon ensured that his subcontractors completed work to a high standard and on time. He cleaned up the site at the end of each day. We are delighted with the results. We have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone at all.
