Period buildings have stood the test of time; they have stood tall through wars; weather and the ever-evolving world round them. This timber framed property came off the worst though; when a supermarket delivery van reversed into it…

 

How do you sympathetically repair such damage?

 

In the UK we are privileged to have a wealth of historical buildings that have stood the test of time; surely a testimonial to the skill of master craftsmen of the past. Today we have taken over the reins of our predecessors to restore, repair; or in this case, reconstruct a hidden historical gem that could have been lost in time. 

We were instructed by our clients, owners of this fine 14th century listed building, to carry out a thorough survey of work that was required.  When we got to the roof we were quite certain that the chimney stack would need some attention.

A few words from our founder, Mr Kevin Jones :-

Welcome to our new website! Here you’ll find examples of our past work, and as time goes on new projects as they evolve. We’ve tried to make it as easy as possible to find the information you need, and to get a sense of the quality of work we achieve.

Any comments, or it we can help you in any way with a project of your own; please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We were very gratified to get the following testimonial from a customer :- "K.E. Jones & Son have done a fantastic job on restoring our 15th century farmhouse."

"What seemed a daunting task to us was made much easier by Ben and his team, who have built up a tremendous understanding of these old timber framed listed buildings. They advised us on work that was needed and the costs involved. Always helpful in finding the best and most economical way forward. Any problems were quickly sorted with the minimum of disruption.

We are delighted to be able to share with you examples of some of our work, as well as advice and tips on renovating and restoring period properties, and other building and construction techniques, right here on our website www.jones-builders.co.uk.

Not only that, though, but we have recently launched new social media channels across four of the major platforms so we can bring you even more content from our day to day work renovating and restoring period properties in and around the Essex & Suffolk border.

Once again we a proud to receive another nice tribute from customers who we recently helped with work at their home in Suffolk.

"K.E. Jones & Son have been extremely thorough, professional and helpful at all times.

"Their service is head and shoulders above that of other companies we have dealt with and we would not hesitate to give them the highest recommendation."

Mr and Mrs Baker 

We have been very busy as of late. The jobs are coming in thick and fast, especially extensions. So I thought I had better show some more of the jobs we have been working on over the past couple of months. 

We were fortunate enough to find another lovely customer to work with. She asked us to extend her house in Suffolk, and re-tile the roof as the tiles had started to break and crumble. First we started to prepare the foundations for the extension work.
