What Does the Client Think?

Client TestimonialWhat I liked about Fintan was that he didn't respond like Pavlov's dog and mindlessly do the work. when Fintan saw possibilities and opportunities, he would very gently make suggestions and leave the final decision to us.

Fintan came up with good ideas for the colour of the house and was able to put another press in the kitchen we hadn't thought of. Fintan's cabinet making expertise allowed him to use the kitchen space very well. We had a fireplace that I thought was well past its time but Fintan thought that it could be rejuvenated and it was. It's aesthetically very attractive and appropriate to the room.

The project ran excellently. We gave Fintan a job to do and he did it wonderfully. Fintan was very good to deal with, easy to talk to and has wonderful people skills. I've had experiences in the past where you feel almost ambushed by a trademens personality, some are pushy and others are patronising. Fintan on the other hand is completely straight and everything is clear.

The biggest benefit to you of using FJB Construction Ltd would have to be Fintan's utter competence and reliability. Before the work even started we were impressed with the detailed and itemized quotation he put together. We knew exactly where we stood.

Fintan put together a very attractive, comfortable, and functional house. Fintan's building and cabinet making skills are marvelous. I couldn't recommend Fintan more strongly. He's a good guy, a hard worker, imaginative and he has wonderful people skills. We were very happy with him.Client Testimonial
