J.B.West Coker

“Joe Symonds and team carried out quite a big job for us: bedroom/bathroom in farmhouse, and conversion of 2 outbuildings into offices.The quality of work was excellent, and the work was carried out within (or very close to) original budget. The team included excellent craftsmen. We were delighted by the outcome, and I would use J&C Symonds Ltd again if I had another such job to do.”

N.P.East Knoyle

“You were probably aware that I was extremely nervous about additional building work due to our previous experience, but you have worked with commitment, skill and dedication to ensure that we had a positive experience this time. Thank you. I would be delighted to recommend you to other clients and schools”
