What our customers say...

We hired Robin James to build a two storey side extension for us. I must admit I was worried about the disruption building works would cause, and also the horror stories I’d heard about other builders.
However, I have to say, from start to finish the whole process went really smoothly. Robin’s team always turned up on time and put a full days work in, they were polite, hard working and always considerate to our needs throughout the build. Communication was excellent and we felt we could discuss any issues as and when they arose. They were accurate with costing so no hidden surprises, and even finished well within the time estimated. I have already recommended them to others and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again in the future.”

Elly, Hertford

“Robin James Builders completed a 2 story extension to our Victorian house and I have nothing but praise for them. Robin gave me a start date about 4 months ahead of when it actually started but he was spot on, showing how great his project management skills are. It finished on time too, and on budget. They did such an amazing job of making the extension blend in with the house and we had neighbours all around complementing us on what an amazing job they were doing. All his staff were courteous, helpful, respectful, tidy, professional and all-round lovely, lovely people. I would recommend them to anyone without a moments hesitation.”

” Robin James built a double height extension for us in July 2015. They started on time with 3 people digging the foundation, and it wasn’t long before there were usually about 6 or 7 people here working on various things. Work progressed quickly, all the guys were friendly and tried to be as tidy and helpful as possible. At the end of each day they would clear up, pack away the dust sheets they used to cover everything and make the area safe and secure. They all kept me well informed on the work being done along the way and asked my opinion on different aspects of the project. I felt my ideas were heard and was really pleased with the outcomes along the way. The job was finished on time and the only difference in price from the original quote was due to me asking for more work done or at a different spec. The work was done to a high standard. They cleared up well when the job was completed. When the job was done there was a small plumbing problem and a small extractor fan problem, both things were dealt with very quickly and efficiently and since those minor teething problems I have had no other issues or concerns.

I would not hesitate in recommending Robin James and his firm in doing any building work for you, they are a great bunch of lads.
I was very worried about all the work and how it would impact on our lives, but I actually enjoyed the whole thing!”

Paul Rocca, Potters Bar

We chose Robin James Builders Ltd for our two projects; a garage conversion and loft extension after having quotes from four other firms.
From the outset the quoting was straightforward and throughout our works the communication from Robin was excellent. All members of Robin’s team were very experienced and extremely professional and we are very pleased with the finished result.”

“We have recently had an extension which comprised of a new garage with a bedroom and ensuite above, together with a single storey utility room built by Robin James. We have been very happy with the build and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. His team are all really good to have around, nothing was too much trouble.

The project management and co-ordination of all aspects was excellent. When the various services were ready for the plumbing, electricity, plastering etc., the appropriate workman were there, sometimes all together. It all appeared to be seamless.”

“Robin James Builders completed an extension for me in June 2010 exactly on time and on budget. He did the total job, including all decorating and the final job is excellent. The workmen were tidy and considerate at all times. I would certainly use Robin again and would be pleased to show any prospective clients the quality of his work.”

Ken Hemming Standon Herts

“We had been recommended to Robin James by a neighbour for whom he had constructed a two storey extension during the previous year. They had been pleased with the quality of his work and his ability to stick to programme. We asked for several quotations from reputable local companies and Robin’s was competitively priced and offered the shortest construction programme. He also recommended the use of a JCT form of contract that showed a professional approach. The design was relatively complex but any difficulties were smoothly overcome. The work force were skilled and pleasant to deal with and enough labour was always available to keep the work progressing. They were scrupulous in cleaning up at the end of each day. The interior and external finish was excellent. We have no hesitation in recommending Robin James Builders but beware of encouraging his motorbike habit!!”

Loft extension Mike Jones Hertford

“Robin James Builders Ltd completed a side extension and an extra bedroom for us. We were extremely pleased with the results. The extension was finished within the estimated time, in line with the quote and according to the plans. Robin and his men were always on site. They were respectful, courteous and friendly- even carrying shopping from the car to the kitchen!! They caused no intrusion to our neighbours and left the site tidy and safe each evening.”

Sarah Trevett Broxbourne

“Having used this company on various occasions for a house extension, raised decking and stone patio, we have found the quality and service to be of a very high standard. I fully recommend this company.”
