What our clients say

We have used JG&JR Langridge for an unusual project, building and installing an elevated disabled-accessible bathroom, and constructing a wheelchair-accessible ramp to our front door, with assistance from the Council’s Disabled Facilities Grant

As such the work had to meet very strict specifications, but Lee Pollard and his colleagues consistently made great efforts to work within these parameters to assist us in creating a bathroom and ramp that still felt personal and beautiful. Throughout the build the staff have been consistently impressive.

The work is of a very high standard, and all the workmen have been friendly, accommodating and respectful of the fact that they were working in and around a busy family home. We would gladly recommend Langridge’s and their sub-contractors to others in the future.

Mr & Mrs T | Brighton

Home owner

I can 100% recommend JG & JR Langridge. Whilst they were not the cheapest estimate we received, the ease with which the project progressed and the quality of the workmanship mean we have no regrets about our choice.

We commissioned Langridge to build a single-storey extension and landscape our sloping garden. The work was project managed by Lee who was professional, honest and courteous throughout the process. Communication was great; we never experienced any problems reaching Lee and we always felt we were treated fairly by him when things changed or we came up against unforeseen costs.

The subcontractors all shared Langridge’s values; we weren’t let down by any of them. We are delighted by the end result and would use Lee and Langridge again in a heartbeat.
