Here are some testimonials from some of our customers.
“Mr Skinner carried out a lot of work for us in 2005/06, renovating a property.
We found Mr Skinner and his workmen were always helpful, friendly and approachable. They
all got on well together and worked well as a team. They could be relied upon to
arrive on time and put in a good day's work, and left the site tidy.
The machinery and equipment was well maintained and clean and Mr Skinner was always
on hand to give advice on any queries or work undertaken.
We were very happy with the work carried out.
Mr Skinner came highly recommended to us and we, in turn, have no problem in recommending
“We have no hesitation in recommending the services of Messrs J Skinner Building
Contractor, who at several times during the past 11 years has done various building
works and property repairs and improvements for us-all to our complete satisfaction.”
A personal recommendation of John Skinner Building Contractor. Over the past twelve
years I have employed John Skinner to carry out various works on my house, from cement
pointing the whole property and building an outside fishpond and patio area to building
a bespoke fireplace and other works too numerous to mention I first encountered John
Skinner after several other local builders failed to respond to an emergency when
several of my roof slates were blown off during a particularly severe gale. John
Skinner was the only person who would turn out and repair the roof immediately. I
was desperate as I feared the whole roof was in danger of being blown off and was
prepared for an expensive bill. But I recieved an extremely reasonable bill, much
less than I considered to be a fair price. I subsequently always requested a quote
from John for all my needs and every one of them were very competitive so John always
got the work. There is a saying which goes, you get what you pay for, but my experience
is that is not always the case. The quality of Johns workmanship was first class
even though the quote was not the highest by any means. John Skinner has given me
valuable advice as to how to proceed to achieve what I wanted and saving me money
at the same time. I have nothing but praise for his employees too, they are always
polite, helpful and hardworking, leaving a job finished on time and clean and tidy
afterwards. In short I can, and do, recommend John Skinner Building Contractors to
anyone and everyone. I have never been disappointed to date, and expect to remain
highly satisfied with him in future ventures
Friends & other local people recommended John Skinner Building Contractor to me.
In 2003-2004 I used his services for the following projects:
· Building an en suite bathroom, including the tiled roof and internal floor and
· Moving a window in the attached bedroom.
· Removing sceptic tank and replacing it with a Bio Sewerage System. This included
the associated pumps, compressor, piping and the laying of a waste water pipe via
a trench across a field to discharge into a dyke.
· Extensive concreting for a garage base, drive, brick planters and other hard landscaping.
Negotiation at various stages was conducted respectfully and changes met with stoicism
and cooperation. All aspects of work were conducted professionally and on time. I
was not resident whilst much of this work was done but this was not a problem. John
Skinner builders could be trusted to work well and liaise with me when queries occurred.
My wife and daughter found them friendly but respectful in my absence.
None of the above projects needed any rework, nor have subsequent repairs been required.
I have no hesitation in recommending his services.
John Skinner Building Contractor recently built us a sizeable extension to our property
We were more than satisfied with the finished project and have to say that we have
had no serious problems since completion. There have been a few minor things
that have needed attention but these were dealt with quickly and efficiently and
with no cost to us.
We would not hesitate to recomend the Company to anyone that needs a good reliable

John built our home and has provided us with remedial work on our rental properties.
He is a friendly, honest and approachable individual and we have continually been
pleased with his work. We would be happy to recommend him to future clients who can
be confident they will not be disappointed. Great service, right price!!
We were introduced to John and his company by chance through the yellow pages when
we needed help. Since then, we have not only received excellent advice and help for
various jobs executed at the house, we have also had such friendly service from
John, his wife and also his “family” of workers.
During the past ten years, we have had many projects at the house-therefor lots of
people have passed through. We count John and his team in our top three companies.
We asked John Skinner to undertake the task of of connecting us to mains drainage,
excavating ground works from the rear of the property to the mains at the front.Considering it was a big and messy job, we were really impressed with the way the
work was done, keeping the upheaval to a minimum and keeping us well informed at
all stages of the job. Following this, they levelled the back garden and laid a large
patio of Indian sandstone. This work was completed to a very high standard, and we
have been enjoying it ever since.We found them to be a friendly team and conducted
themselves professionally throughout.We would be very happy to recommend them to
others and would have no hesitation in asking them back in the future.
We have had work done by J Skinner Building Contractors on two or three occasions.
We have found the firm to be prompt, reliable and efficient.
The work force is also very professional and works to a high standard. Whenever there
was a problem Mr Skinner would easily come up with a solution in a very reassuring
manner, which relieved us of the worry.
As a person, John is very friendly and easy to get along with. All in all , an excellent
firm to employ. We would highly recommend his company and would be our first choice
in any future work required.
I accepted Mr Skinners quote to build an extension to my property in 2005, which
I am happy to say blends in seamless both inside & out. The work was carried out
expertly by johns workforce to my complete satisfaction.
John has done two jobs for us, a two storey extension to the side of the house
and more recently a repair to the back wall of the house, new patio doors, opened
chimney breast and render & plaster walls & ceiling. Both jobs we are more than
happy with, the standard of work was is exceptional, the men were tidy and very conscientious.
We are more than happy to recommend John to our friends & family.
John Skinner completed an extensive renovation project for our home. He discussed
our requirements in full, provided fixed price quotations and delivered the project
as discussed. His team were professional and polite throughout. The quality of delivery
and finish within the property was excellent.
Having moved to Lincolnshire it was difficult to know who was a good builder and
project manager in this area. John Skinner was the answer, with his team completing
the alterations required in a professional and timely manner and with the minimum
of disruption. I would highly recommend them.
