They have restored our faith in builders Thankyou from Gaynor and Floyd x (Reviewed October 2020)
John and Mike have just completed a full kitchen and dining room renovation for us and we are absolutely over the moon with the results.
John took our ideas and made them become a reality and the results are even better than we could of imagined.
We canât thank John and Mike enough for yet again making our dreams for our home come true. Thanks very much from Chris, Lisa and Chloe (Reviewed October 2020)
Excellent from start to finish. I canât recommend them enough. We had a double storey extension built. This was to create 2 bigger bedrooms and extend the utility room and put in a downstairs toilet. The quality of work is brilliant and we are so pleased with the result. The service is fantastic and anything extra we needed they did. They even fitted our downstairs oak doors for free as a thank you to us for using them. We still call them now for any extras we need and they bring it to us. I want to thank John Marsland Builders for making our lives easy with this extension cause it can be a stressful time especially when in lockdown with a toddler. Freddy is so happy with his big dinosaur bedroom. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to my family and friends. (Reviewed October 2020)
2 and half years ago the team built me the most amazing extension, unfortunately we have had drain problems (no fault of John Marsland Builders) the insurance company sent someone and they told me I had to lift the floor so they could do further investigation! I phoned John Marsland in a panic and he was at my house and he within 10 minutes to lift my floor for me!!! Once you are a customer of John Marsland Builders you will forever be a valued customer! I can not recommend enough every bit of work is top class quality and affordable for everyone 10 out of 10 would give 20 out of 10 if i could MASSIVE THANKS (Reviewed August 2020)
We selected John Marsland to undertake a large-scale kitchen refurbishment and whilst discussing the preparatory arrangements, we mentioned a long-standing problem with under-floor heated tiles in the bathroom. John offered to help and within 48 hours the work was complete. The service and quality of work was exemplary and we have no doubt that we will be writing an equally positive review for the kitchen refurbishment once this work is completed. (Reviewed August 2020)
We have used John Marsland for a number of projects over the years and each time John and his team have never disappointed us. The current project was for a porch, he worked closely with us on creating the design, advising what would work for our style/function. He kept to his schedule and always kept us informed right through the project. John and his team are great people to work with, respectful, tidy workers with the work completed to a high standard at a competitive rate. We would have no hesitation in employing John Marsland Builders again should we have another project. (Reviewed May 2020)
John is simply a very reliable builder, whom I have never had any hesitation in consulting, and never would. Even out of hours during emergencies, he always offers sound reassurance or advice, and if needed, drops everything to visit and make an assessment. The quality of his service from written quotation to completion of work is of the highest standard. You may pay a little more, but thatâs what you pay for to get peace of mind, years of experience, and most importantly having your best interests at heart, and not his. A rare quality these days. (Reviewed March 2020)
What a fantastic company, John came and gave us a quote for replacing the front doors while we were waiting delivery the back door broke, we rang John and he came immediately and repaired the door until a replacement came. John and Mike came today and replaced all three outer doors, they have done a wonderful job and we are very impressed. Bright and cheerful nothing to much trouble, even repairing a kitchen cupboard for me. Would highly recommend these amazing guys. Thankyou so much. ð (Reviewed February 2020)
The service and workmanship from John and Mike was phenomenal. My husband and I had left our kitchen refurbishment as the last job to do in the house due to the amount of work required. We sought various quotes from builders but non left us confident that we would get our desired look. When John came to firstly look at the job he gave us so many ideas to improve the look we wanted. He managed to keep within our budget and arrived on time every day. His and Mikes attention to detail was amazing. The job took a couple of days longer than initially expected but that was solely so the finished product wasnât rushed. Even though I knew my kitchen would be amazing I never quite anticipated it would be as good as it is! I would recommend John Marsland Builders to anyone and will use them again. (Reviewed February 2020)
I can't praise John & Mike enough, I am over the moon with the work they have completed on my home. Their workmanship is superb. Nothing was too much trouble. They worked tirelessly throughout the project. They are extremely reliable arriving at 8am every day and very tidy too!. They are very highly recommended. (Reviewed December 2019)

Excellent service provided by John and Mike they refitted my kitchen bringing it up to date, they both turned up on time every day answered all queries with no hesitation even carried out extra jobs free of charge. I couldn't be happier with the work carried out and I'm left with a beautiful kitchen. I will definitely be recommending them to my friends and family (Reviewed October 2019)
With 48hrs to go before house selling completion, the buyer highlighted a problem with the roof. The next day with 24hrs to go, the estate agents sent in their builders to assess, quote, complete, and sign the repairs off. Quotations received were between 2 & 8k pounds. With absolutely nowhere to turn, I was at the mercy of the wolves. John Marsland was my only hope. John dropped everything he was doing, assessed the damage, ( not once, but twice) cancelled some of his own work, assessed, quoted, liaised with estate agents, challenged surveyor, repaired and made good the repairs for Â£597, all within the time frame required. Without Johnâs kindness, thoughtfulness, understanding to a very difficult situation. Do not hesitate to contact John for any building requirements. Thank you John. (Reviewed September 2019)
Contacted John and he attended 6 weeks to provide quotes and take measurements of kitchen and utility areas. John was able to supply pictues of what the area would look like following completion of works. John provided us with quotes and came in on budget. John gave us a start date and arrived promptly at 08:30 on the Monday morning. The works were completed on time 10 days later and John and Mike worked really hard to make sure they did not over run. We could not be happier with the works that have been carried out. John is really approachable and did not mind us asking questions as the works were carried out and listened to our concerns and made adjustments where required. Highly recommend John and Mike and we will be using their services in the future for further works we have planned! (Reviewed July 2019)
To add to my last feedback re ground floor kitchen extension and other home improvements. I ran out of space!! thanks to both John and Mike for making our home a better place to live. We decided to stay and not move and thereâs no regrets!! We now have a beautiful kitchen /diner and love looking out to our patio area. Hopefully we will build up to second floor; if money permits, If we do, then we wouldnât choose anybody else!! Also thanks to the architect Stewart who was also excellent and clear. Thanks again!! (Reviewed June 2019)
We employed JMB to complete our ground floor kitchen extension including a downstairs WC, and to undertake a number of other works. These works were: new roof, new replacement windows to whole house and new front door, new large patio area to rear garden, relocating my husbandâs studio/garage. John provided excellent communication from beginning to end. What we liked was the quick response to calls/texts and receiving typed invoices detailing monies paid. Everything was âabove boardâ. The amount of work was large, so there were issues that cropped up, but nothing major and were resolved with our satisfaction. JMB have created a fantastic kitchen/diner with bifold doors opening up onto our large patio area. The downstairs loo has been an excellent choice for us with 2 small children!! :) (Reviewed June 2019)
Excellent workmanship, design and competitive pricing. John put a solid roof on my conservatory,changing it to a dining room.Designed and fitted out my kitchen enlarging it from kitchen/ dining room. Added a wood stove in my lounge and chimney breast. Wood flooring throughout beautiful landing with a glass and stainless steel feature. New fencing,paved back garden and front. We have recommended him a number of times to our friends all of which have used his business. John spends time with you and discusses what you want and he provides the skill and knowledge to ensure thatâs what you get. Wouldnât use any other builder as we trust him implicitly. (Reviewed March 2019)
John and his team have completed a number of projects for us and our friends and family over the past few years. All of which have been completed to a excellent standard and with as little disruption as possible. The lastest job that we have had carried out was to reconfigure the layout upstairs to accommodate another bathroom so that our growing family didnât have to move. We are over the moon with the completed job and the massive impact it has made to our family. We would highly recommend John and his team, they arrive when they say they will and stick to the budget promised at the start and keep you informed with whatâs happening now and the what the next stage is all the way through. (Reviewed March 2019)
John returned to our house to look at a leak that had developed nearly 2 years after he had successfully completed a large scale renovation and extension to our property - which we are still delighted with.
John responded same day to my initial text and came round to do an initial investigation, this resulted in a follow up visit within a few days. Both John and Mike arrived at pre agreed time and they proceeded to trace the root cause of the problem - which involved some fairly significant removal of cabinets and flooring. Fault was found, rectified and everything restored to same standard as they started, including a vacuum and wipe down. As always a pleasure to have John and Mike in the house, more surprising was the zero charge for the days work - which was great aftercare service. (Reviewed March 2019)
John and his team have just finished our bathroom and WOW, it look like a showroom or a boutique hotel bathroom. Itâs everything we wanted. John and his team even worked late to make sure it was completed on time.
This is the the third job he has done for us in 2 years including replacing the conservatory roof, and removing both chimney breasts to make it open plan. The house now looks like a show home thanks to JMB. Thanks so much, kitchen next? (Reviewed March 2019)
We wanted an extension to our bungalow but we were unsure how would be best. John, with his experience gave us a vision and worked with us and for us in every aspect. He guided us through each step and made adjustments to suit our needs. His work surpassed all our expectations.
The back garden was a hazard for me but John and Mike have given us a very low maintenance, pleasant area to sit in. The new resin front garden now affords us off road parking. A real bonus. It also looks really good.
They arrived on time, were there when they said they would be. They cleaned up their work area every evening, told us each day what would be happening the following day. They involved us in everything.
We are delighted with the end result, John and Mike were great and I'd use them again. (Reviewed March 2019)
Absolutely fantastic work from John and his team, can't thank them enough for the new bathroom! Would highly recommend them to everyone after completing it in quick succession! (Reviewed February 2019)
We paid John Marsland Builders over Â£25,000 to renovate our property. The quality of their work was poor. They made many mistakes and fitted damaged goods and refused to put things right. The build took 8 weeks instead of the 2 and a half weeks JMB quoted because they often did not turn up for work or left early. In the end, JMB walked out of our unfinished property and did not come back. We had to employ other tradesmen to fix their faulty work and finish the build. Then JMB attempted to charge us twice for a bathroom suite, spotlights and ceramic floor tiles! If you use this builder, take care and good luck. You will need it!
TRADER RESPONSE: After 48 positive reviews from customers who are more than pleased with the high quality works we provide. I feel that this review is over exaggerated and aimed to cause maximum disruption as possible to my Business.
I am confident this will not be the case.
I am obviously disappointed with this review as I feel it is not correct. My company policy upholds the privacy of all my customers, so therefore I will not comment on the points you have raised as I am sure this will cause further anxiety for all involved. I am glad however you have managed to finish the project using funds that you held back from my company.
We as a company have learnt valuable lessons from this and we will implement these lessons in our work going forward.

John committed to this work at very short notice and the replacement of the close-coupled WC was completed quickly and to a high standard of finish.
Would definitely recommend this company. (Reviewed October 2018)
Another excellent project completed by John and his team. This time it was chimney breast removed in the living room and bedroom and a set of stunning internal bifold doors between the lounge and dining room. Again we supplied our vision and John provided the solution to a very difficult request. Couldnât rate them higher, the best builders in Denton and Tameside (Reviewed May 2018)

John worked with us on a large extension project that began at the start of 2017. John worked with us through the design and planning stages in advance of providing the detailed quotation. John assisted with all questions, providing options and alternatives based on his experience as well as guiding and advising through the planning process and timescales. Once work was underway John , Mike and Charlie worked at pace, arriving early and were always courteous and polite. Mess and disruptions were inevitable given the scale of the project - but these were kept to a minimum with John arranging the worst impacting jobs for when we were away on holiday.
John, Mike and Charlie were completely trustworthy and were a pleasure to have in the house.
A few (very minor) niggling problems towards the end of the project took longer to resolve than expected and detracted slightly from what was an overall very positive experience.
I would thoroughly recommend John and the team if you are considering any building / improvement activities. The end result on my house extension is fantastic. (Reviewed December 2017)
John and the team did an excellent job, friendly, polite and easy to approach. Was kept upto date with progress, and we are very happy with the new kitchen. I hope they do any future work, so thank you to everyone involved. (Reviewed December 2017)

John Marsland Builders recently completed a 1st floor extension to my property, I found it to be stress free and john and the lads kept me up to date on all aspects of the build.
They were tidy workers and very professional in the manner they executed the works. They also fitted a new bathroom and kitchen to a very high standard. He even solved some foundation and drain issues which were required by the building inspector to enable me to get my completion certificate. I wouldn't hesitate recommending John and his team to friends and family. (Reviewed June 2017)
John and Mike carried out quite a considerable amount of work on our house, including putting in a new bathroom which involved turning a storage cupboard into a shower.
Fitting a kitchen from scratch, putting in 2 new doors (front and back), repointing the front elevation, taking down a chimney and making good the roof, fixing the roof on the outside passageway and putting new skirting boards on the landing and fitting a handrail to the stairs.
All work was carried out on time. Any work that was carried out by others eg. plastering, was done very well by tradesman who were recommended by John.
We are happy with the service John provided. Nice people to have around, friendly and polite and always willing to listen to any ideas we had and advised us on things we were unsure of.
They will be calling back in a few weeks to make sure everything is ok which i feel is a sign of good service. (Reviewed June 2017)

Having had several estimates for the refurbishment of a bathroom, I settled on J Marsland Builders. Estimates in general were qualified with " of course we do not know what we may find once we start the project". Not what you want to hear when on a budget.
The estimate from J Marsland seemed to cover all eventualities following a thorough survey and an agreeable estimate arrived at. Disruption was kept to a minimum and the work completed on time.
Really pleased with the result and would have no hesitation in recommending them to others, which I have already done and I believe this work was also well received.
(Reviewed March 2017)
Given a very short time scale in which to complete the work they gave us their estimate of how long it would take, turned up when they said they would and completed everything that was asked of them to a high standard and within time. They gave good advice on how to achieve the best result and responded well to the changes we asked for, even when the work was in progress.
While not given to making recommendations I would make an exception in their case and would happily recommend their services. (Reviewed March 2017)
John and Mike were both very professional and very accommodating when we had a new bathroom installed which was previously a spare room and the old bathroom changed into a utility room.They kept the mess to a minimal always cleaning up at the end of the day, they kept us informed of progress and did a lot of extras that I asked for.
Having never had builders in before I was dreading it and can honestly say if you want a good reliable building contractor then these are the ones you want.
Thank you John and Mike will call you next time we want something doing

Having been let down by another builder, and had difficulty in finding another one, I contacted John via the Buy with Confidence scheme. John made an appointment to come round and look at the jobs I wanted doing which was, removing cracked and damaged concrete from a large backyard and replacing with sandstone paving slabs, removing an old outside toilet and cistern and using the water supply to create a garden tap, completely removing the old toilet roof and structure and replace it with a brand new watertight roof, remove and replace door and surround. After agreeing a price for the work John turned up on the appointed day to commence work, the work was carried out to a very high standard, his team of builders were courteous, friendly, and very helpful. When minor problems arose John dealt with them almost immediately and without any problems. The work was completed quicker than I expected, his men cleaned all the rubbish away, and I have to say that I was very impressed with John and his workforce for the quality of their work. The difference between what the backyard looked like before the work and after it is unbelievable. Should I ever need any more building work then John will be my first point of contact. If you want an exceptionally good and reliable builder, then I have no problem in highly recommending John. (Reviewed November 2016)
This is the first time we have used John Marsland Builders and I can say without a shadow of a doubt that this will not be the last After receiving many quotes, John's was by far the most reassuring as he walked us through every step with confidence. The floor was replaced in record time and the finish was to the highest caliber. After speaking with John about saving an original feature, John did his utmost to preserve this piece which we were very pleased with. The level of attention to detail John and his team puts into their work goes far beyond our expectations. Their passion is evident in the high level of quality in their work. We were more than comfortable leaving John and his team to work while we were away, and were pleased to find the home was left clean and tidy when we returned.
Needless to say, when we come to starting a new project we will have john on speed dial. Thank you again John and team for all your hard work. (Reviewed July 2016)

After being left waiting for months by another trader, we commissioned John Marsland builders to install land drains in our waterlogged back garden.
We had used John in the past for other building projects but we were unaware that he did garden projects.
We have always found John and his team to be very friendly and accommodating with no job being too big or small.
John knew exactly what to do and instilled confidence. He kept to his promised start date and finish ahead of schedule. During the work he and his team show the upmost respect for our house and garden and the finished result is fantastic. Our garden has never looked so good.
I would recommend John and his team to anyone and we will use him again for the next project without hesitation. (Reviewed May 2016)
We got a number of quotes from both local and national companies to replace our glass conservatory roof to a warm system and John Marsland Builders was the best price by far. We have now been able to use our conservatory as a dining room and get so much more use from it. The conservatory is the same temperature as the rest of the house now. The work was completed in just under a week with minimum amount of fuss and disruption. The work was completed to an extremely high standard and we were completely satisfied so much so our neighbours have all commented on the difference it has made to the line of the house and a number of them have requested quotes for the same. Definitely something for everyone to consider (Reviewed April 2016)

When John first came to look and give me a quote for an extension at my home I was impressed with the ideas he came up with, improving on the architects design. Once we'd agreed on price John started work almost immediately and things started to move quickly and proffesionally.
