“Many thanks, Ben was very prompt with contact and his quote was very clear. Although we changed our mind half way through the job went very smoothly”

Liz, Stockport


  • Boarded out the loft and a built in bespoke wardrobe.

“I was very happy with Ben. I felt very comfortable with having him in my house, I wasn’t in when he did the work but I had no problems leaving him a key. He was very economical with the boards that I already had, helping to keeping the price as low as possible. The new wardrobes are a great use of an awkward space.”

James M, Potters Bar.


  • Bespoke full height entertainment units either side of the chimney breast.

“We instructed Ben to build two units in our lounge. We found a picture and asked for this to be replicated. The project ran very smoothly, Ben is very easy to deal with, and the finished product is great. We are really pleased and are currently getting Ben to replace out solid wood worktop which had become rotten.”

“SCJ were very professional, reassuring, helpful and we were really pleased we got them to complete our work. Ben took complete control of the refurbishment making the whole process really enjoyable. Any problems he dealt with after consulting us with clear description and options of how to rectify the issues. It was well worth SCJ project managing the whole process, Ben co-ordinated with the other trades, even the ones we arranged, ensuring the job ran seamlessly. The finished product is amazing and looks so professional, we would definitely recommend him and there is already work coming his way from our neighbours who want exactly the same work done. We love it, thank you”
