``High-Quality workmanship and good communication.

When moving to the area our new home in Walton came with several layout problems which needed rectifying. At the centre of this challenge was an old cast iron spiral staircase and the knock-on effect removing it would then have on the remaining ground and first floor layouts.

To help me with this project I called upon Steve Cole of S.J.Cole and Co after many recommendations.
Steve and his team worked quickly and carefully as the stairs were removed and all but two of our internal walls were altered. Steve was always considerate to the fact that we were living in the house while the works were carried out and he always did his best to leave things as tidy as possible at the end of each day, something my wife and I appreciated.

Along with changing the stairs, altering the layout and making good, Steve also helped with over boarding old, damaged ceilings and with plastering the majority of the house. Steve also coordinated with the other trades throughout and made the process as easy as possible for us.

Steve clearly enjoys his job and this shines through in both the quality of the work and his positive attitude each day on the project.

The work was finished on time as agreed and we could not be happier with the end result. A big thank you to Steve and all his excellent team, my wife and I couldn’t recommend him more highly. ``

``Just a note to say thank you so much for your building work. The front of our house is transformed now and we are delighted with your work. It is rare to find people who do everything they say they will do, are reliable, punctual and considerate, and keep us fully informed about what is going on.

The quality of your work is excellent, and all the different tradesmen that you brought on site were thoughtful, helpful and their work was of similar high quality.

We will not hesitate to use you in the future, and we have, and will continue to recommend you and your team highly.``

``I asked Steve to quote for an extension to my house for a purpose built annexe for my elderly mother. Steve gave me detailed practical advice and ideas for the extension.

I went ahead with Steve because I knew him to be dependable and honest. I am a single parent working full time from home and it is important to me to be able to trust the people who are in my house.

Steve, his son David and all the contractors he brought in to complete the extension were polite, reliable, thorough and tidy in their work. They respected my property and my need to continue working whilst the extension was being built letting me know when things were likely to get noisy!

The job was completed ahead of schedule and within budget. Steve kept me informed throughout and I was delighted with the outcome.
I can wholeheartedly recommend Steve and his company. I have already approached him again about carrying out a further extension to my house.``

``Steve undertook building a new detached garage and major structural changes to the existing house, which went exceptionally smoothly being both on time and within budget.

Steve's work was of a very high quality and high standard throughout, with every consideration shown to minimise any disruption during the project.``

``This is slightly belated, but I wanted to write and say a big thank you for the work that Tony did on my two flat roofs back at the end of July. One of them had been leaking and I was worried about the lower one as much of the work around my property hasn't been well finished. Tony immediately told me the leaking roof had been replaced fairly recently so he would just need to do a minor repair and that the lower roof was indeed quite old and it would be best to replace it completely. I really appreciated his honesty and was pleased to learn the quote hadn't changed.

Tony was quick, neat and tidy and really knew his stuff. I had a party in the garden planned the next day so having the work finished and the garden tidy before then was priceless. He also neatened up the gutters and made it possible for me to open the windows which previously had been problematic. I am so happy with the work and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tony or your company to anyone needing help with a building project. Thank you!``

``Thank you for undertaking a very tricky job for us, locating and fixing a leaking pipe under our floorboards. Everyone else who quoted for the job said that the cost would be enormous as the whole bathroom suite would have to come out.

You and your team figured out a creative way around the problem and were able to locate, access and fix the offending pipe in half the time we were told it might take. I could not recommend you more highly!``
