What Our Clients Have to Say

Thank you for everything you have done for my clients. Some easy, some not so....

I have loved working with you, and I think we have worked well together. 

Thank you again, take care


Senior Technical Officer
Disabled Adaptations Team
Adults, Housing and Communities, Southampton City Council

“I wish to formally record my thanks to S&J Building Services for all the assistance provided in the removal of a considerable amount of shelving and plans chests from the Chart Depot to our new storage facility. Spencer ensured that everything went very smoothly and nothing was too much trouble for him and his team. The entire job was handled with a quiet, calm approach, utterly professional, and no adjustment to the proposals that we made was unachievable. Spencer and his team are a credit to your company.”

Liz Filer

Headteacher at Bassett Green Primary

"We have a couple of operatives working at the above property and I just want to say they have been really professional and working great with the resident who has learning disabilities.


The resident fell over yesterday when they was onsite and they was so good with her and helped her go from the location of the fall (hallway) to the lounge and called me straight away as she wouldn’t let them call for an ambulance – they didn’t do any manual handling but just stayed with her and reassured her.


They have also found when being onsite that the stopcocks aren’t the best and have liaised with us at Sovereign on what options they have to isolate the water in which we suggested to isolate the whole building, when doing so they worked really fast and placed new stopcocks for the property and got the water back up and running in the building before anyone could notice.


So I just want to say a thank you to them as they have been great, wearing PPE and placing plastic down so carpets don’t get marked"

Chloe Atkinson

"Dear Steve, Dave and the team at S&J Building Services,


I am writing to thank you very much for the excellent work carried out to refurbish my 100-year-old Mother-in-law's bathroom including installation of a walk-in shower enclosure, new WC and basin. The whole process has been a delight - from initial contact through to meeting on site, planning the layout, provision of excellent computer-generated plans and detailed specification / quote, then prompt execution on site keeping to the programmed timescales.


The technicians on site were extremely helpful and the standard of work top quality.


I am pleased to report my Mother-in-law is now making good use of her fantastic new facility.


I have no hesitation in recommending S&J Building Services - they have a proven record of expertise in the field of bathroom adaptations and deliver an excellent outcome with great customer care.


Many thanks, once again, and best wishes,"
