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 him. “

“After having considerable building works carried out to our home by John Skinners builders we would not consider any other builder for any future works.

John and his team were always professional, trustworthy, punctual and in our opinion delivered a high standard of work at a competitive rate. “


Mr & Mrs Hurry Friskney



“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

Sincerely B.R.Hallsworth, Sibsey.


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 wall tiling.

· 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 and conscientious workforce.

Anyone seriously considering using this Company would be welcome to view his work here.

Simon & Emma Newby Boston


John Skinner has always been very friendly and professional and carried the work out to a high standard


Mr Hopper Boston


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.


Trevor & Joan Boston


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.

Dr Wookey, Boston


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.

In the summer of 2008 J. Skinners came and laid a block paving drive way. They did an outstanding job. A year on people walk past and say what a lovely drive way.

We would highly recommend J. Skinners to any body for a job well done.

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.
