Covid has changed the way we work forever, as a seasoned professional with many years experience in the construction industry myself, staff shortages during the pandemic left my team understaffed so I asked long term colleagues at PJB to help construct a new build two bed
holiday chalet at Cedar Park Bovisands.
Despite the issues that the pandemic threw at them the works were completed to a very high standard and within budget. The customer was thrilled with every aspect of the build and thought Pete and Jon were thoughtful and very diligent in every aspect of the works. Often making quick changes and adapting the project to meet the customer's needs as the project progressed. We are very grateful of their support and will be working much closer on other similar projects in the future.

PJB undertook an extension to our property, between Feb and Nov 2020. This was a delayed start, but we had been kept informed of the reasons for the delays and so that was not a major concern. Unfortunately, international events ended up disrupting our project - PJB managed to get the foundations poured the day of the first lockdown. The pandemic contributed significant problems relating to delays and also supply of various materials.
Despite this, and associated delays, PJB worked reliably with us to ensure that we did not deviate too far from our budget. Although this was not without friction, the project was completed to everyone's satisfaction.
There has been some low level 'snags' to overcome since, and Pete, John and Bailey, have returned to rectify ASAP. Thanks (Reviewed February 2021)
This company was exemplary in every way. Attention to every detail, perfectionist care, and nothing was too much for them. I am truly delighted with the standard of work.
they were careful, cheerful, and a pleasure to do business with. (Reviewed November 2020)
PJB created a garden room; turned a garage into to a fully fitted kitchen and created a very useful utility room and toilet. Two openings for access to the lounge and utility area were included, also a small patio, garden steps, retaining walls and much more. PJB kept us up to date with progress and issues when they occurred, offering positive ideas and alterations to improve the existing plans. From our very first meeting through to completion, we found the team to be trustworthy, hard-working and very conscientious with regard to every task they undertook. The completed project has totally changed the downstairs living space, providing a light and spacious feel to all the rooms. We are very pleased with everything and so are visitors. In short first class communication, team and job. (Reviewed March 2019)
We are delighted with our new sunroom, it's even better than we imagined. Right from the first meeting Pete kept us informed about the start date & then, once the build was started, gave us a progress report each day and a plan for the next. Pete and Jon are very reliable and didn't go off site to do other work as we have heard that other builders can do. They were very approachable & eager to share their experience to help us decide on things such as window design, internal & external lighting, decking etc. They are totally trustworthy & we were happy to leave house keys with them. They are also very conscientious - and example of this was during a stormy weekend when Jon popped round to check that the tarpaulin covering the roof was secure. We have no hesitation in recommending PJB. (Reviewed November 2018)
I have given PJB Builders 5 stars. It's just a pity I couldn't have given them 6 ! Being a tradesman myself in another field I can honestly say I have never received service like this from any builder previously.
I would 100 % recommend them for any job in their fields of operation. Peter and John delivered more than was originally intended, to the quoted price and on time. A great job all round. (Reviewed October 2018)
Builders came to build an extension next door. I saw their work and asked them to build me a wall of which I was very happy with and the price was right. (Reviewed September 2018)
We were very pleased with work, which was rerendering the back of our house and some internal replastering. It all went to schedule, Pete always kept us informed to the progress and what they planned to achieve the next day. A few small problems arose (you never know what you'll find when you start hacking stuff off) but they were all dealt with straight away. Best thing we can say is that we would use PJB again if we needed anything doing. (Reviewed April 2018)
I was very pleased with the work carried out by PJB at my house. Pete kept me well informed throughout the process and made some great suggestions to get the best out of the property and budget. Standard of work is really high and the company were a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend them. (Reviewed April 2018)
Excellent and prompt service. Repairs to roof done to a high specification. The site was left clean and tidy. Would highly recommend. Thankyou to Pete And Jon for a job well done. (Reviewed February 2018)
Pete and Jon made our dream come true!
After being let down by another builder, Pete and Jon along with Billy the apprentice, came to our rescue. I believe they wanted us to have everything we dreamed of as they set about building the extension on the side of our bungalow.
Nothing was too much trouble.Lots of extra tasks were cheerfully carried out.
Always bright and cheerful they felt a bit like extended family as they worked in our home. We are delighted with the outcome.

PJB Building have just built a 40 m2 two storey extension to the front of our house, roughly doubling the size of two bedrooms, kitchen and dining room. From initial discussions about possibilities and options, negotiations on the contract, through to the build itself, Pete and Jon have done an outstanding job. The quality of their workmanship is excellent and they fully involved us in the design and build, adopting an accommodating and 'can-do' approach throughout with a great problem-solving approach - inevitably on such a large project issues arose, but all were solved in a professional and innovative way: just what we wanted. They have constantly been professional, whilst at the same time adopting a very affable approach, even in the face of adversary: the weather! It is a tribute that a large number of people walking/driving past the building have commented very favourably on both the workmanship and final result. We have been very happy throughout and can thoroughly recommend PJB to anyone wanting building or maintenance work done. Thank you PJB! (Reviewed October 2017)
The fact that everyone in the street has been asking for these guys number since completion speaks volumes.
From providing us with our initial estimate, to completing the works carried out on our property, PJB Building and Property Maintenance have done an exceptional job.
They demolished the existing prefabricated garage from its current position, undertook a small-moderate landscape project and constructed a single storey dwelling.
It is obvious to us that all the internal and external materials that were used throughout the works were of high quality, and the initial estimate that we were given was not altered at all (apart from the small-moderate landscape project they did for us which we only asked for a few weeks before they started...they were very patient with us and eager to make us customers very satisfied with the service they provided!) The internal finishes such as the skirting and painting, were also performed to a high standard.
The contract they provided us was clear and concise. This is the first time we have had any building work done on such a large scale, and the way they communicated with us (face to face, via email and phone calls), was excellent.
They kept us constantly up to date with their progress and sometimes finished slightly later than planned on certain days, to ensure they stuck to the timeframe they gave us..they are very dedicated and hardworking!
We would recommend PJB Building and Maintenance to anyone looking for value for money and at the same time, those wanting to receive a five star service! (Reviewed July 2017)

I phoned PJB Buildings to receive a quote for an end of build snags list of works. Pete came round and discussed all the various works and costs. I was very pleased with his knowledge and professionalism. I agreed for the works to be done. Pete & Jon completed all works to a high standard in a reasonable amount time for a very fair price. It's difficult to find honest, quality builders, so I cannot recommend this company enough.
They fixed a leak in my walk in shower, which needed tiles ripping up and retaking and relaying new tiles. Plasterboard removing and replacing in the ceiling underneath, which was re-plastered and painted. You would never know any works had been done. Great job.
I had partially built a fence, they completed the fence building in difficult sloped spot and finished all the planting of shrubs and bushes in that area. It looks immaculate.
I had a partially build shed which they completed. They planted a dozen bamboo and did landscaping services.
They fitted 2 new bathroom fans, one that was grouted into the wall. Both look immaculate and work perfectly now. They fixed several down lighters that has dropped out of the ceiling.
They also did some painting works and other repair jobs.
If you need any building works large or small, I would use this company. I will be contacting them for any future services. Cant thank them enough. Very friendly and professional. They did a great job. (Reviewed May 2016)

PJB Building have completed a number of small jobs for us over the past year, so we decided to ask them to complete a whole house renovation of our family home. I have been recommending them to everyone as they completed the job on time, under budget and with the minimum of fuss. We can not recommend them highly enough. Having building work can be very daunting but Peter took the time to guild us through every aspect - GREAT JOB WELL DONE - they will also be coming back to render our home and build a car port later this year - thank you Peter.
