J B Contractors / Builders

    "These guys were great. Coloursteel roofing replacement. A really quick turnaround with safety railing going up only a couple of days after contacting them - they were significantly less expensive than others. Then a bit of working around the weather, but this was well done. Kept everything clean at the end of each day, and the final cleanup left the place tidier than they found it!

    Plumbing (superfluous vents) and building requirements (a rotten rafter) were dealt with without fuss and at reasonable cost."

    "I used No Cowboys to find JB Contractors so it seems sensible to record my mixed feelings on here. My comments aren't about the quality of the actual installation (a Butynol roof and spouting) which I can't really judge. Firstly, old roofing material was allowed to fall through the ceiling into a ceiling light which then cracked. Daren said this wasn't foreseeable but I disagree with that. The light was replaced but a high quality glass light was replaced with a plastic one that seems much lower quality and not 'same or similar'. Secondly, the entire broken up roof was left in the bushes on the other side of my path. Throwing it there broke some planted shrubs. Some was taken away but some was left and I had to contact Darren to get the rest removed. Most of it was but there is still some there. I realized this on the weekend when I stood on a piece of timber with 3 x 2 inch nails sticking out of it. Luckily I had thick sneakers on! I am very confident that this was part of the 'roof rubbish'."

    "I had a total roof replacement done and am very happy with the job. JB contractors started when they said they would, removed the old iron tidily and have a good finish on the new roof. Kept me informed as to what was going on, explain how they would handle the job. Realistic price too."

    "Got JB Contractors to fix a roof leak which had been repaired unsuccessfully by a plumber. Darren is prompt in communication and quoting. More importantly he is very knowledgeable about where the potential leak might be unlike the previous plumber which was complete guess work.

    The repair was done is a reasonably prompt and professional manner and roofer did a tidy job. I would recommend JB Contractors if you have a roofing problem."

    "Darren made this a really simple process. Quote and work done all within about 10 days at a reasonable price. They called me about the additional work that I added on after the original quote to ensure I was happy with the assessment and the price before going ahead. Excellent clear communication and prompt service. "

    "They came, they saw, they quoted. We accepted. They fixed and tidied up after themselves. No more puddles in the bathroom. Even pointed out a guttering issue which would lead to future problems. We found the whole process easy from beginning to end. "

    "Darren and the boys provided us with fast and efficient service to replace our bay window roofs. They even turned up earlier than expected (I had just accepted the quote and then a couple of days later they turned up to do the work).

    Highly recommend J B contractors for all your roofing needs. "

    "We needed our entire roof replaced before a month long trip to Europe and since it never stopped raining as the date got nearer we got more and more nervous. Darren guaranteed to have it done before we left and true to his word it was all completed by the deadline. We came back from holidays to a nice dry house. Highly recommend Darren and his team."

    "After being mucked around by other companies Darren was fantastic. After I called him he turned up the very next day to look at the job and he was back to us just a couple of days later with a quote. A short time after receiving the quote the job was completed!!. Very friendly guys. Very Satisfied we are. Would recommend them to all."

    "We chose JB as the 3rd of 3 quotes for a deck. They were by far the cheapest (half the price of the first quote) and the guys seemed on-to-it while quoting (plus they had great NoCowboys reviews).

    When they came out the work was done really fast with a great result, exactly what we had hoped for. Carl and Al also gave us good feedback during the job, and were happy to receive our input. They cleaned up after themselves and we got on well with them.

    The final price was exactly what was quoted, and we'll be using them again in future."

    "After the butinol on the bay window roof dried, it contracted unevenly in places leaving some of the metal from the under-layer slightly exposed. I wasn't happy with this and contacted Darren, but felt that he brushed this off as being just how the product worked and not his people's fault. It still irks me every time I look at it, but probably not noticeable to others, so I haven't pursued this any further."

    "We had our garage roof replaced by J B Contractors recently. They did a great job, we live on the South Coast and were concernced with rust - Darren was great at explaining the different materials available and pros and cons of each. Once we had made a decision he was able to provide a cost effective solution. The workmanship was very professional and the roof looks great!"

    "Fantastic job on all fronts. This is the second time that I have used JB Contractors. They were recommended to me by my sister -in-law who was really impressed with their work, I have also referred them on to friends who were similarly impressed. I have nothing but good things to say about this firm. They give really robust and practical advice; they turn up when they say they will; they are nice to deal with; do a great job - and are very competitively priced. In addition they have considerable expertise in clay tiles - which I discovered most other roofers dont have. Five Stars!"

    "After spending 3 days getting mucked around by various roof contractors trying to find someone to come fix a tile that had blown off the roof, I rang these guys up - not only did they say not a problem, they came around and fixed it within 24 hours of my phone call...while I was out watching the cricket at the Stadium. He rang me to say the job had been completed and the invoice was totally reasonable.
    So highly recommended that I cant even stress it enough.
