We used Hood and Joy to create a large open plan kitchen from a warren of small rooms and passageways, and to convert a number of small rooms into a utility room and bathroom. They did exactly what they said they would do, exactly when they said they would do it and all at the agreed price - which is exactly what we wanted! And everyone on the team was really nice, and they kept the site neat and tidy. We are delighted with the results and wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

In order to sell our house the surveyor suggested that we needed to place a steel supporting beam in the roof. I contacted Hood and Joy, who were so helpful in managing the whole project, from the recommendation of a structural engineer to the production and installation of steel beam Hood and Joy delivered to both time and budget. Great job and highly recommended. A local company you can rely.
Just wanted to write to thank Paul, Gary and the team for the work that they have completed for us. Having used them before, to complete a loft conversion, they were first on our list to complete our recent build. Paul has worked with us over the last 2 years as we worked though the planning stage through to the last cabinet being fitted in the extension. The build was not simple as it joined the existing property to an outbuilding and required further structural engineering solutions for both an old well and utility supplies. Paul discussed with us the issues, and the solutions in a commensense way that put our minds at rest, and moere importantly completed the works as described. I cannot recommend highly enough, and am happy to have the photos of the work undertaken shown to prospective clients.
When I was considering adding a set of stairs to access the attic room, Hood & Joy came round, measured up, and explained the process and all that was involved. Their clear concise advise was incredibly helpful - excellent customer service. One of the best in Ipswich, probably one of the Best in the UK!

Hood & Joy have just completed a substantial extension on our house in Ipswich. Their quotation was clear, their manner reassuringly open, respectful and friendly, their service was punctual (meeting start and end dates without interuption or delay), and they adapted to our requests for minor changes with ease and flexibility. Their work was of a great standard and we would not hesitate to recommend them for this type of work.

John & I are absolutely delighted with the two new dormers Hood & Joy recently built for us. Thirteen years ago Hood & Joy expertly converted our loft space into two bedrooms and a bathroom. The new dormers were completed quickly (7 days start to finish), professionally (with skill and attention to detail) and in good humour (answering patiently my continual questions and queries). With many grateful thanks.

When they built our extension they were professional from start to finish. Always helpful and always on time. Also when we were well outside the guarantee period they called to see if everything was ok. Where else would you get service like that.

Hood and Joy have recently completed a loft extension for us and the work carried out was of a very high standard and it was very stress free - Which I hadn't expected! The team were tidy, friendly and thoughtful towards us as a family and I highly recommend them to anyone who needs carpentry work carried out.

Hood and Joy were initially hired to carry out a loft conversion on our property, but were additionally requested to further works including erecting a large decking area and other conversion work. We have been very pleased with their professionalism and quality of work and as a result continue to use their services and recommend them to our friends.

We were only too delighted to write a reference for Hood and Joy Builders and Loft Converters, who were fortunate enough to discover through personal recommendation. They converted our outhouse into a bathroom and utility room and we are very pleased with the results. Their quote was competitive and was what we paid on completion. They started and finsihed the work within the agreed dates. They kept us informed at all times of how work was progressing and always turned up when they said they would. The work was to a high standard and they seemed to take personal pride in it. We highly recommend them, they were punctual, polite, honest and especially charming and thoughtful to our 15mnth old son, particularly when drilling. We would certainly hope to have them again if we needed more work doing.

Just a short note to let you know how pleased we are with the work you undertook on our chimney breast and lounge dining room entry. We were amazed how quickly you dealt with the various alterations you had to make, once we saw the magnitude of the problem. As a result of your consideration in clearing up each evening we suffered no incovenience and no unecessary dust throughout the house. We would not hesitate to recommend you to any others requiring work of a similar nature.

We recently have had our loft converted into a third bedroom. We contacted Hood and Joy and we made the perfect choice. Above all we can not fault their work. They have been professional, friendly, clean, tidy and extremely considerate as we have a young family that they have had to work around. We will without doubt be recommending Hood and Joy to our friends and family and we too will require their services in the future. All the best of luck to Hood and joy and thank you very much.

We used Hood and Joy for a first floor extension and new kitchen installation and found them to be helpful, fair and friendly. Our neighbour commented how good it was to have workmen who do not swear. Their work was a good standard and their price fair despite us changing our minds about things and of course adding to the original job they were fair and honest about the end price.
We would recommend them without hesitation because it simply was as pleasant and worry free as any major disruption to your home can be.
We had Paul & Gary of Hood & Joy build our beautiful single story garden extension during the summer of last year. From start to finish we have nothing but praise for them and their team.
The site was kept clean and tidy at all times and the communication was above first class, Paul was always available on the phone when needed and the whole build was carried out without any sort of issues.
The finished build is above our initial expectations and has become the most talked about room in our home by friends and family.
We have had no reservations about recommending them to others and they will be the only call we make should we have any building projects in the future.
We are Bonds Domestics on Heath Road and they have fitted a new shop front to a very high shandard. We are very pleased with the work carried out,from the start to the finish. A few changes were needed and they were only to happy to help in every way,they always keep you informed on daily basics,and most of all, always turned up on time without fail.
Everyone that worked for Hood & Joy worked to a high standard,and cleaned up every day and had a good laugh.
I wish them the best and i would recommend them to anyone.
Anyone is more than welcome to come and have a look

We employed Hood and Joy to construct a large two storey extension to our house and to make major alterations to our kitchen. In the tendering process they were, at all times, focussed on our requirements; taking time to listen and to work with us on the planning process.
The standard of work was exemplary, on time and to budget. The staff at Hood and Joy were always polite and courteous. During the project, we made some alterations to the design and they accommodated the changes and dealt with the necessary regulatory processes.
The end result is a very high quality annexe extension which has added value to the whole house. The standard of the fitted kitchens in both houses is excellent and the advanced boiler system allows for both houses to maintain their own regulatory heating systems in an efficient and economic manner.
We have no hesitation in recommending Hood and Joy as builders and would be more than happy for anyone to visit our house to see in person the quality of their work.
Plastering walls is a highly skilful task, as many amateurs will have found to their cost. Re-plastering rooms requires being able to maintain ‘true’ straight edges, smooth and level surfaces all without...
