We first encountered CJ Holmes when they were undertaking a major redevelopment at a neighbouring property. The high quality of their work and tidy management of the site impressed us. So when we embarked on pur own redevelopment, CJ Holmes was an obvious choice for our shortlist of potential builders.
We selected CJ Holmes because of their detailed quote and our knowledge of their previous work nearby.
Our completed project is excellent. The standard of workmanship is superb; Dan has clearly chosen highly professional and experienced employees and sub-contractors. Throughout the works Dan kept us fully informed of progress, the site was always tidy and the crew were always helpful and friendly.
Without hesitation, we would use CJ Holmes again and have recommended them to others.

A friend recommended Dan Eaves and his team after CJ Holmes had built their house for them and we are very happy to pass on the recommendation. The extensive renovation work to our 400 year old property has been expertly completed on time, within the precise and detailed budget and to an excellent standard throughout. Dan brought his expert knowledge, precision and attention to detail to the job and seamlessly managed the whole team of electricians, plumbers, decorators, joiners and carpet layers on our behalf. The whole process ran smoothly and efficiently from start to finish, he was able to accommodate changes to the plans along the way and has offered a level of service far and away above our expectations.

We would without hesitation recommend CJ Holmes, and not hesitate to use them again. Their ‘can do’ service ethos, attention to detail and quality of finish was outstanding. We undertook a major house building project in the wettest year in many many years, and were still able to finish on time and on budget with minimal stress incurred along the way despite the whole family continuing to live on site throughout the build

CJ Holmes was one of a number of builders we received quotes from for substantial renovation work of our grade II listed house and building of a new garage. Firstly I was impressed with the level of detail they required before they actually made a quote whereas some builders did not even visit the site before quoting! Therefore I felt reassured that the quote contained everything and there would be no additional costs at a later date. Once work commenced the standard and professionalism from all staff members was excellent. Dan eaves always responded to any form of communication rapidly which is rare in this industry so it meant the whole works process was stress free. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again and have already recommended them to many of my friends.

Thank you and your team for delivering to requirement and to the detail. It is a delightful building and enhancement to our home. Thank you also for working through the detail with me before and during the build in a professional manner. No build goes exactly the way as planned and we sorted the challenges and difficulties with the minimum of fuss and came to balanced decisions to make the contract work. That is an increasingly rare thing!

I’m so pleased that I chose CJ Holmes LTD. Their level of professionalism and standard of work is second to none. Through what could have been quite a traumatic project the staff managed to make everything run smoothly and conclude with an exquisite end result.
