Customer reviews

Marian and I wanted to thank you for the building work that you recently completed at Welford Cottage.  We are really happy with the transformation and are thoroughly enjoying living in the additional space that’s been created. In our naivety we thought that the building work would be fairly straightforward and finished in a few months but we didn’t quite realise the complexity and the intricacy of the work. With Andy’s knowledge, expertise and support the building work flowed smoothly.  Problems encountered were dealt with professionally and quickly.  As we decided to stay in the house whilst the work was completed he showed sensitivity to ensuring we were comfortable and safe. Other subcontractors completing the roofing, plastering (Chris and his team), electricians (Charlie and Ollie) and plumbing (Ben) carried out their work to a more than acceptable standard. We would be happy to recommend Gray’s to other potential clients who wish to consider them for future building work. Very much appreciated

We have used these builders for two fairly major jobs, one an historic cottage refurbishment from top to bottom and the other a kitchen and twin shower room extension. Our experience with them was a pleasure from the outset. They have been helpful at every turn and willing to take on board all that we asked. Nothing was ever too much of a problem and they gave helpful and cost-saving advice. Their pricing is also very competitive and their follow up on any snagging once the job was finished was exemplary. They were good at keeping to schedules and the finish of the work was first class. We could not recommend them more highly. Nick Jenkins

“CJ Gray Building Contractors Ltd. were requested to resolve dampness and other issues in the old part of our house and to restore it to current building regulation standards.  Given this situation, we also took the opportunity to have a new window installed and internal doors throughout the house replaced.  Every individual member of their Team was courteous, competent and extremely hard-working. Thanks to all of them, we now have our home back together and fully restored.  We unreservedly recommend this company.

“I cannot recommend C J Gray highly enough. C J Gray provided a very competitive quote for a single storey extension, conversion of existing garage to additional lounge/TV room, and conversion of car port into new garage. The work was carried to a great standard by their skilled team of craftsmen, who were all very reliable & polite, and they all worked hard to ensure that the house remained as tidy as possible for us, while we lived in the house alongside the work being carried out. The project came in very close to the original estimate on price and timelines. We are very happy with the finished result. Thankyou C J Gray.”  Mr Butler, Ashford

“The works included a new roof with Velux windows, upgraded central heating and reconfiguration of the ground floor.  It was a complex, multi-layered job but a positive ‘can do’ attitude and obvious expertise meant that the whole thing was finished more or less on time and on budget. The staff were courteous and professional – they also displayed common sense.  Andy, who led the team, was very approachable and made every effort to understand what we were trying to achieve. We are delighted with the end result and would absolutely recommend Andy and his team to other householders.” Stephen Hewson March 2021

“We are very pleased with our extension. Andy and his team were very professional and the trades seamlessly worked together to complete our light and bright new room. We would thoroughly recommend to friends and family.” Robert Hinks

“Reliable and honest contractors. I would trust them to carry out a job to complete satisfaction” Phill Brown

The CJ Gray team were part of a group of tradesmen that carried out a large renovation at our home. Andy was always responsive, hardworking and willing to make helpful suggestions. They worked through the first lockdown which is a credit to them and were reliable, thoughtful and provided a very good service. Kathleen Harris

“CJ Gray was one of the more sensible quotes we received and we chose them for our single-storey extension based on price, reviews and communication. Throughout the project, the level of communication and advice was above my expectations.  The initial build was very rapid and the project was managed well by Andy and his team. As ever, there were unforeseen obstacles which were dealt with by CJ Gray in an efficient way. All staff employed were very polite and respectful. We are very happy with the end result and love our stunning new kitchen/dinner. We would highly recommend CJ Gray.” Graham Graves
