    Abdul Alim, Skinner and Co

  • I'd like to express my gratitude to you and your firm for your professional and helpful approach to the building work we had done .

    RJ Construction

  • I just wanted to say thank you to you and your staff at jhai. I have been recommending your inspection services to all my customers over the last two years or so. Only last week a customer forgot to apply for a building notice and asked me at very short notice to arrange. After calling you up, I dealt with Kaya who immediately emailed my customer the relevant paper work. After they returned application and payment , Kaya then contacted me to let me know that all was sorted and I could commence works after five days. On other occasions, Hannah has also been of great help. On the front line of inspections, I deal with Lewis Jones, who also is very helpful and knowledgeable about the building works I carry out. Thanks again to you and all your staff .

    Darren Hodgetts, DHC, carpentry and building works.
