“We bought a small two bedroomed bungalow probably built during the sixties.  The architect design was modern and challenging. George and James had to demolish a large amount of the original bungalow and build a large extension. The quality and the standard of their work has been exceptional. The people they employed worked to the same high standard. They advised and helped us in every way possible. We are very proud of our bungalow and would recommend George and James Construction with the greatest of confidence.”

David and Sue Harmsworth

“The builders at George James Construction Ltd are all friendly and professional. They listened and understood exactly what we wanted. Their knowledge was brilliant and they helped us work through some ideas that we had not considered. They arrived when they had arranged to and worked hard. The work was carried out as agreed and they kept our home as tidy as possible, considering the mess creating a door in a solid wall makes. I am pleased we chose George James Construction Ltd to carry out our building work and would highly recommend them.”
