Recommendations are how JAM Builders gets most of its work. We have built up a reputation over the years as a professional, and friendly, company, who bring in all projects within budget and to the highest quality.
Below are some words from our Clients.
“ JAM was originally contracted by us to undertake the extension of a side return for a new conservatory, as well as the digging-out and tanking of our cellar in August 2009.
Jed and Marlon worked with our subcontractors and us in order to achieve the smoothest workflow possible and it is testament to them that they coped excellently with a very dynamic project environment. Jed and Marlon were always on hand to give advice and where necessary, offer alternative suggestions in order to get the job done as efficiently as possible.
Jed and his team were always on time, hardworking and fun to be around and there was always plenty of lively banter on site! They coped with a variety of requests for additional jobs to be done and kept within our agreed budgets and timescales, apart from one totally unforeseen modification to our cellar. The quality of the work has been nothing short of excellent and both my wife and I are delighted with the work that has been done.
It is rare to find tradesmen who operate in such a professional and courteous manner, stick to timescales and budget and ultimately produce such high-quality results. I can thoroughly recommend the JAM team in an environment where finding a quality firm is fraught with uncertainty. It is without question that you get what you pay for – JAM were competitive, but on the basis of recommendations from a friend who had used JAM previously, we chose them over a cheaper quote and are very happy that we did so.
Thanks once again for a great job. ”~ Alex & Karen Tangen
“ I was very pleased with the overall project management and final result. I've always felt at ease with the workers allocated to the project (carpenter, electrician and decorator) and they were happy to discuss changes to the original specs and give suggestions based on their expertise. The final result is great: the flat looks brand new. Also, the quotation process was very clear and professional. I would definitely contract JAM again. ”~ Alberto Coppo
“ JAM builders have now completed two jobs for me on my house in Hammersmith and I would highly recommend them. The jobs were completed on time and on budget and with a minimum of stress to myself the client. Marlon and Jed are very quick to understand requirements and are happy to pitch in with suggestions too. They use polite, friendly, tidy, skilled people to complete the work. It is very clear that Marlon and Jed are very particular about the quality of the people that they use on jobs and I believe that if they continue to do this they will continue to be successful. I look forward to working with JAM in the future. ”~ Mike Haward

“ JAM has worked on two projects for us and both have been performed to very high standards. They also came in on time and within budget, which must be unique in the construction industry. Jed and Marlon are a pleasure to deal with, and I would now not go to anyone else for our building work. ”~ Guy Jones
“ We wanted a side extension for our kitchen and needed some reliable builders who could take us from start to finish. JAM builders were recommended and from our first contact we felt confident that they would manage the total project well. They helped in all areas from listening to our needs, developing plans, submitting planning and getting planning permission. When we agreed to go ahead with building work JAM were able to start the project within 10 days. Everything ran smoothly and to time, and if there were issues - JAM dealt with it. There was always time to consult when we wanted, however, in reality, little time was needed as the project was managed well - and it helped that one of them was always contactable.
The workers who were contracted to JAM were excellent; hard working, really tidy and always helpful. (On one occasion, when we felt that a builder was not so good we found it easy to approach Jed or Marlon to discuss; and they quickly sorted the situation). JAM also worked well with other builders and suppliers (we sourced and built the kitchen from 2 different suppliers) and JAM ensured that everyone worked together to ensure lighting, decorating, tiling, underfloor heating also came together at the right time and in the right order.
On costs, JAM is not the cheapest, but they are good value for money. The project came in on budget - except when we changed the specs (!) - and these additional cost were always highlighted to us asap. Invoicing was very efficient
Overall, we are really pleased; our new kitchen has overexceeded our expectations (wow!), the quality of the work is very high and even when the end of the project seemeds to drag on a bit (doing final small touches etc) we still feel that Marlon and Jed are attentive and eager to help.
We have no doubts about recommending them and are happy to be contacted if you have any questions. ” … email Hilary~ Hilary McArthur
“ Hiring a building firm can be risky - you worry that everything will take longer and cost more than the original quote, the builders will juggle several jobs (and yours always seems to be at the bottom of the list), and you never see any paperwork for all that cash you hand over....JAM Builders are completely different and as a result I highly recommend them: NOTHING went over budget, EVERYTHING happened in the agreed time scale...JAM is run as a business and I always felt confident that the job was being done professionally, by professionals. A breath of fresh air. ”~ Jonathan Jay
“ JAM Builders recently undertook a number of projects for me at a Putney property, both decorative work inside the property and the rebuilding of exterior parts. Throughout the project I found Jed and Marlon, and all their guys, to be totally reliable and honest. They showed up when they said they would, left the place tidy at the end of each day, and kept me informed of progress as we went along. When we did hit a minor glitch, I was impressed by their willingness and co-operation in solving the problem to my satisfaction. It was all done with a bit of humour that made the whole process somewhat easier. I'd have no hesitation in recommending JAM Builders to others. ”~ Caroline Watkins
“ From my office window I watched JAM Builders work on the house opposite. I observed them over several months and was very impressed by not only thier very high standard of workmanship but by their time keeping, their tidiness and their demeanour to each other and to other members of the general public.
When I asked them to quote for a job I needed doing for my house, they were efficient, cost effective and quick. When they started work; again, apart from the high standard of work, all of the men were unobtrusive in the house, the usual problem of builder's loo and tea habits were nonexistent as they were all off site. They started when they said they would and they finished in the time quoted and within budget.
I would highly recommend them to anyone. ”~ Jennie Hardless
“ I had the pleasure of having Marlon and Mark of Jam Builders work in my flat. They were very professional, honest, and prompt and finished to a high quality. I would definitely recommend them to friends. ”~ Demetri Economopolous
“ I can strongly recommend JAM builders. Both Marlon and Jed have been to enormous help and did a great job refurbishing my flat.
The work was completed in time and while the work was in progress I received frequent updates. Marlon and Jed also helped me with practical issues and helped me choosing the right material etc. All in all: I am very pleased with JAM builders. I was impressed by the knowledge, work ethic, the great attitude and friendliness. It is hard finding good builders but here is a team you can trust to do a great job. ”~ Cristina Aldrin
“ We have engaged JAM builders on two projects for our Fulham home (bathroom and kitchen). Both projects were managed and delivered to our requirements & timescales.
What is so special about JAM is the quality of trade resources they bring in and the project management they give really adds value. We are both busy corporate workers with little time to manage tradesmen. JAM takes full ownership of the overall project, guiding us through the renovation process and giving us the trust to let them make the important daily decisions that are needed on-site with any renovation project on our behalf.
In addition to fine craftsman and building work, they have a great eye for contemporary design and helped us transform our bathroom and kitchen into stylish and functional spaces that reflected our vision and lifestyle. JAM are straight talkers and a heap of fun to work with too. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to renovate any living space; indoor or outdoor ”~ Charlotte Knight
“ Having recently moved into a old mews house in Putney it badly needed some chimney breast support & structural roof/ceiling work, the involvement of an architect and wandsworth council. I can recommend Jed for any large project (in fact 3 other builders wouldn't touch the job as it was "too fiddly") as he liased well with the architect and council and was very professional. His team of guys arrived on time every day at 7.30am and finish the job in 5 days (right on schedule and I was happy to leave Jed with keys for the house to manage the job while i was at work). When unforeseen jobs popped up he was able to call on other tradesmen to fill the gap and sort out the problem with no delay. Not the cheapest but would rather have the job done than run about and chase people to complete. ”~ Howard Williams
