"We love the extension, its great, not forgetting the enthusiasm and hard work that went into it by all the team"

"We selected JP Hale through a recommendation by our Architect and excellent feedback from previous customers. We found working with Justin an easy stress free experience, he was always prompt at returning calls & emails etc. Our project was on time, good value for money and issues were dealt with immediately which resulted in a positive experience. We would highly recommend J P Hale, it was a pleasure to work with Justin on our build and excellent customer service from Emma as well"

“We bought our bungalow with the intention of making it more suitable for my wife’s disabilities and I made a list of all the things that I would like done. I knew that it would be a big project and most of the builders I contacted never came back to me. One who did, came, and then told me what he would do, which wasn’t my dream. I’d seen a building firm working on a house on the road where I walked my dog and having watched them over several weeks I was impressed by what I saw. I contacted them and that’s when I met Justin. My wife liked him instantly, and he listened to my plans and offered practical ideas and advice. We had plans drawn up and chose J.P.Hale for the job. Throughout the long project I was involved with the decision making and felt completely involved. Justin was able to offer solutions to all of the problems and remained confident and sure, even if I began to have doubts. The job was long and complicated, but Justin delivered it within the timescale promised and on budget. We now have a home that is better than I’d imagined and we are very happy. Justin has been supportive at every stage of the project and has made everything possible for us. We are extremely grateful for his professionalism and the overall competence of every aspect of his company’s operation.
I have no hesitation in recommending J.P.Hale as a building firm who are capable of taking a concept of a plan and making it reality. “

"I had a side extension and building alterations constructed by JP Hale.  From the moment I met Justin I liked his attitude.  Justin and his colleagues are the utmost professionals going out of their way to explain everything and keep me informed at each stage and making any small amendments required.  He developed my project on time and on budget.  I feel I had good value for money.  An outstanding professional company that I would have no hesitation in recommending."

“The 8 month wait for J P Hale to be available was well worth it.
From the initial planning meeting right through to completion, nothing was too much trouble. The excellent team had the knowledge and expertise to adapt to any problems that arose or changes we asked for, always with a smile (and often some background singing!!)
We never felt that any question was too stupid and Justin in particular was always on hand to talk through any concerns.

A professional, courteous and efficient company who were a pleasure to deal with and completed the works to an amazing standard.
We would highly recommend J P Hale to anyone”

“We decided to use JP Hale for our loft conversion after meeting with Justin for him to provide a quote. Justin has a great personality as well as extensive knowledge of his trade & we didn’t hesitate to book him in.
Throughout the process of the project Justin was always on hand if we had anything we needed to discuss or for any advice. His team are exceptional, 100% professional & dedicated. They were here first thing in the morning & often stayed late to complete various tasks.
The project was delivered in budget & was completed well within the estimated timescale.
We are extremely happy with the outstanding work provided by JP Hale & will use then again for any future projects we may have. We cannot recommend them highly enough, it was an absolute pleasure from start to finish.”

"Having recently moved from Bromley, we were very grateful to the Association of MasterTradesmen ( for approaching us and providing recommended builders in our area. We obtained quotes and references and selected JP Hale.  Justin's team were very professional and we had no issue in sharing our house with them.  We are very happy with the final result and any issues were quickly resolved.  The project was completed ahead of schedule even though we added some design changes.  The project also remained on budget.  J P Hale's quote was competitive and we would not hesitate to recommend them to other clients".

"We are really happy with the new garage extension.  Justin and his team are very reliable and work to a high standard. We would always use you and would recommend you to our friends and family. Both the extensions and patios you have done for us have added a new lease of life to what was an ordinary bungalow.  We now love our home and are looking forward to the summer to be able to use the garden.  Thanks again for a lovely job".

"This was the second project JP Hale had done for us, we were so pleased with the first job  so we asked Justin to give us an estimate for an extension and new front windows and doors.  We altered our minds 3 times, but this was not a problem to him, he gave us advice and took on board what we were looking for.  The job started on time and completed within schedule.  During the whole time Justin and his lads were courteous , hardworking, helpful and trustworthy.  Any new additions we asked for were discussed and dealt with.  The finished project exceeded our expectations and we are really pleased with everything and would recommend J.P.Hale to anyone".

"Justin and his company were a delight to have in our home. They were friendly, kind and professional throughout. Our kids loved having them here (though not always showing it!).
The build was in budget and in time frame, and finished to a very high quality. We adore our home now so a huge thank you to them all. Now to save up to get them back to do our loft and garden!"

"We appointed J P Hale to extend and refurbish our kitchen and utility room on the basis of a very competitive estimate and a site visit to a job they were just about to complete.
No building project is ever without its challenges, but Justin and the team tackled everything our 1920s house could throw at them. In many ways the finished product is even better than we could have hoped for.
J P Hale will be the first company we ask to quote for any future building works".

"We put together our building project ITT out in June 2016 and had interest from 4 companies.  We invited the tenderers to visit and ask any questions in advance of submitting their response.  This was an interesting experience for us and in truth the selection process was more about who we wanted to work with rather than who was going to be the most cost effective.  Justin on his visit listened and offered solutions whilst also showing he was keen to win the business.  We felt we would be able to work with Justin and 6 months later upon completion of the works we are pleased we chose the right contractor.  Works started in September 2016 and are now fully completed.  Like probably every building project the customer is prone to changing or adding to the project and we certainly made some additions and changes along the way.  Communication and project management has been excellent throughout the project and we always knew what was planned and when it was going to take place.  Justin works with a team of plumbers, electricians, tilers and plasterers all of whom, along with his regular guys, were a pleasure to get on with and they all did an excellent job on our project.  I am sure that JP Hale will continue to do well in this space, we are extremely pleased with the works and the transformation it has made to our house and cannot recommend J P Hale highly enough".

"I was very pleased with the quality of the work carried out by J P Hale.  The initial job entailed re-designing and re-building some outside steps to bring them up to current safety requirements and give a cleaner, more contemporary look.  Justin listened to what I wanted to achieve and made pertinent suggestions regarding materials and function.  The work was carried out whilst I was away and my close neighbours remarked upon how clean the site was everyday.  The finished result has made a tremendous difference to the look and feel of the property.  Throughout construction, communication was good with both Emma and Justin.  Justin regularly checked that the work was proceeding in the correct manner.  I then decided to ask the company to carry out the next job I had planned.  This entailed clearing a small patch of garden and laying a paved area.  Justin was very helpful regarding advice on the correct materials and suggested 'Fossil Mint' for this.  The site was cleared efficiently and my garden pots were handled carefully.  The work was carried out with no fuss and Justin checked the work regularly and made sure that I was happy with each stage.  Paul worked extremely hard and the project was completed on time.  Having dreaded the whole process, I actually enjoyed each stage because it was so well planned and efficient.  From my experience, I would certainly employ J P Hale for future projects".

"We first came across JP Hale Ltd whilst 'surfing' Twitter and were immediately drawn to his website.  This professional site provides ample reasons to investigate further if you have a building project in mind!  Justin Hale quickly responded to our initial enquiry and spent considerable time understanding our requirements.  Our project was scheduled around eight weeks and we came to know Justin and his team very well during the project.  Justin is a very enthusiastic person and has a happy disposition which makes his 'downs' all the more noticeable!  He has clearly acquired a comprehensive knowledge of the building industry and can often offer 25 different ways of tackling something.  He has a great sense of humour and having one is helpful, a builder can often reduce you to tears, with Justin this is down to laughter! Throughout the project Justin was keen to keep us appraised of progress and ensured that we were entirely happy with the finished result.  Justin has surrounded himself with a talented team and whether they be architect or carpenter, electrician or plumber, brick layer of painter they all display many of Justin's qualities and all combine to enhance the experience.  Our job was completed on budget and schedule!  Having them here was an experience not to be missed and the finished result surpassed our expectation! If you are looking for a good builder then give them the opportunity.  We will definitely use them again in the future!"

"We are thrilled to bits with our dormer window extension with ensuite bathroom.  We chose JP Hale as we had heard of his good reputation and good workmanship, and we were not disappointed.  Justin listened carefully to what we wanted and gave us good advice and cheerfully made any changes we requested.  We enjoyed having the whole team work happily onsite together, and found them all very professional and worked to a very high standard, on time and on budget!  Thank you Justin and team, we cannot praise you enough for the excellent job you have done and we are more than happy to recommend you to anybody".

"From the very first visit, Justin has been a breath of fresh air in our experience of builders, and just who we needed for our project.  Within the rather simple description of 'Side and Rear Additions' was a substantial and sometimes complex project that has been completed without drama and to a very high standard.  We could not be more pleased with the outcome.  Justin and his small team have been augmented by other specialists such as screeder/plasterer, roofers and tilers, and without exception everyone who worked on site has been committed, professional and pleasant to have around.  The work has been undertaken with interest and care and the finish is just great! Justin is a problem solver.  Where the inevitable queries arose, he explained and discussed options, and in our case he undertook an additional unexpected major chunk of work without fuss and with the same attention to detail.  Throughout he has maintained close personal contact with a real sense that our home matters to him.  We could not be more pleased and have no hesitation in recommending JP Hale".

"After seeing a number of other building contractors, we were immediately impressed with the way Justin (JP Hale Ltd) interpreted our design and listened to us.  Justin project managed absolutely everything from day one which included re-routing the sewer, a complete electrical re-wire and replacement of central heating system.  He liaised closely with our Architect, managed Sub Contractors, Suppliers and Building Control, all the while maintaining excellent communication with us so that we always knew exactly what was going on.  Justin interpreted our design perfectly, brought his own vision to the project and, with his eye for detail, has completed the work to a very high standard.  It is so good these days to find someone who is so enthusiastic about all aspects of building work and is able to meet the everyday challenges, expected and unexpected, with a cheerful can-do attitude.  We are delighted with what Justin and his team have achieved for us and are proud to have a stunning Kitchen (with pantry and Utility Room), Dining Room, Study and refurbished WC.  We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Justin to you".

"It is a fact that for most people having building work done in their home is quite a stressful experience especially if you cannot escape to your holiday home on the French or Italian Riviera whilst the work is going on.  To minimise this problem we cannot recommend Justin Hale highly enough as his ability to make you believe that everything will be fine in the end is quite admirable.  We can also confirm that he was right everything did turn out well and all was completed to our satisfaction".

‘’We chose J P Hale to undertake our building work as from the initial meeting Justin completely understood our requirements. He was also able to put our minds at ease regarding any fears we had. We both felt we had confidence in him to do a really good job".  We found Justin and his whole team to be reliable, considerate and professional and each stage was always fully explained to us. Communication was excellent, everything was well organised and all stages of work were completed to schedule.  Justin made sure we were happy and everything was finished to our satisfaction. We would have no hesitation in recommending JP Hale to anyone considering building work".

"We have used J P Hale on several occasions, initially because they were recommended to us. Justin understood what we wanted and gave good advice. He was punctual and reliable. The work was carried out to a very high standard, for the price quoted and within the time scale specified. The site was left clean and tidy, his workmen were polite, hard working and very professional and caused as little disruption as possible.  I would have no hesitation in recommending them and would definitely use them again".
