Why Choose JT Contractors

Here’s just a few reasons

We have just had our old driveway taken away to have a nice new blocked paving one put in, which was completed on the 12/10/2020. The boys had a big task on their hands removing our old concrete driveway and replacing it. They were hardworking, tidy and very polite to work with. We are very happy with our new paved drive. I would highly recommend. Thank you!

All the best,
The Davidson’s

sharona davidson

very happy with the service we had thank you so much!

James Pride

Very good work throughout both drive and patio.

Contractors were very clean and reliable helped me from start to finish even worked on bank holiday Monday to finish my drive or new baby’s arrival.

Jamie Clark

JT Contractors have made me a very happy lady! I’ve not been the easiest of customers, scrutinising their every move, asking lots of questions (then asking for clarification), keeping a close ‘eye’ and phoning them whenever I have had a query/concern – even outside normal working hours. On every occasion, James (the boss) and his team have been so obliging. They have responded to my questions without making me feel like the nuisance I probably was. To summarise, they were punctual, worked so hard without taking numerous breaks, did what they said they were going to do, never accepted offers of drinks/snacks, completed each day’s work without delay and produced a final, what I can only describe as a ‘work of art’. I love my little front garden which has been overhauled, tarmaced and sealed and keep going out there to look at it very proudly. The men took pride in their work and James ensured the highest standards were met from his staff. The final touch was the embedding of posts and railings by Josh, all of which was finished today. Josh was the epitome of a gentleman, much younger than me, but a true gentleman and fantastic worker. He asked my opinion before he completed anything, changing as I requested along the way without impatience. It looks glorious now. No, I am not a family member or friend… If anybody wants to make contact, please ask for my number through James; I will be happy to talk to you personally.

Steve Miller

Just had a whole lot of work carried out by Jimmy and his excellent team of Ian, Paul ,the two ‘Barrow boys” and for a short time Josh.
You couldn’t have got a more friendly helpful crew than these. The very small amount of changes I wanted were done without fuss or complaint and they even planted a favourite tree for us. We have ended up with a totally transformed garden and frontage and where I am now able to park my car without getting my feet muddy. Thanks boys and I won’t hesitate in recommending you

J T did a new drive way for me and they were excellent.
The finish was exceptional and they were friendly and very hard working.

Mike Whiting

Driveway paving and garden patio is excellent. Super fast, listened to our needs and went above and beyond when we realised we needed adjustments. Would use a dedicated garden specialist for the lawn, but for drives and patios highly recommended.

Tim Gow

Recently had my driveway designed and laid with JT Contractors.
Not only was the price exceptional the workmanship excelled.
I would highly recommend this company.
Thank you so much JT Contractors.

Debbie Lewis

Speedy service, work was carried out at the agreed price and still looks great months after.

Richard McCarthy

Literally just finished my drive which was completed to a very high standard. We were a bit skeptical at first as we had received a cheaper quote elsewhere (although some more expensive ones as well), but so far we are more than happy with the level of service we have received, and the driveway looks excellent.

Russell Kilby

James and the team was very efficient and I am extremely happy with the work that they have done, we had a drive way with a huge dip in it, James and he’s team of guys had completely transformed my drive! Even finished before goal date which was even better. The price was reasonable, cheapest are not always best.
Very happy with the quality of the work.

Samanther Garner

Did a great job, we are really happy with how the guys transformed our drive and patio. We are in Chelmsford we fully recommend them.

Paul Davey

After getting three quotations from local Southend driveway companies JT contractors Ltd was very competitive and had good ideas for my elderly mother driveway and wheelchair access I would highly recommend to anybody many thanks JT

Kelly Poul

I’ve just had my patio, driveway and fencing done and the work is fantastic, the staff were very polite and hard-working, the organisation was phenomenal, they come to my house Monday and finished Saturday and done a brilliant job, no mess left, didn’t have to pay till the job was done and I could honestly say I would recommend them for any work any time of the year, keep up the good work guys. 👍

Josh Wye

Had Jimmy, Ian and the team in to block pave our frontage. From the outset they were very professional and friendly. After a discussion with Jimmy got them to include fencing to one side of the house and a small brick wall to the other. They have totally transformed the front of our property. Would definitely recommend JT Contractors to family and friends.

Paul Smith

James and his team have just finished my drive and patio in Rochford Essex, As a builder myself I would highly recommend them and will be using them on my building projects in the future, many thanks especially Ian for keeping my neighbours happy and keeping all foot paths and roads tidy and clear.
regards Mr Thorogood

Callum Thorogood

JT contractors have worked magic on our driveway! They responded to an enquiry quickly, offered a competitive price and were able to work to a tight timeframe. The driveway is now the envy of the road and the guys that completed the work were very friendly, hardworking and considerate to both our needs and the neighbours. I cannot recommend JT contractors enough, 10 out of 10 for quality and service!

Claire Noy
