We have been very impressed with J.R. Carpentry - from our first conversation through to the last day of the job, Jim and Maria have been a pleasure to work with.  Jim's attention to detail and expertise translates into quality craftsmanship - we are very happy with all of the work undertaken at our house (alcove units, floating shelves and built-in wardrobes) and have already recommended J.R. Carpentry to friends.

"We had a very positive experience with JR Carpentry from start to finish and are absolutely thrilled with our new built-in wardrobes which have transformed our bedroom. Right from the beginning Jim was very collaborative in his approach and his attention to detail was second to none. He made really helpful suggestions and worked with us to come up with a design that worked. We highly recommend JR Carpentry and hope to use them again soon ourselves."

"JR Carpentry have always provided me with a reliable, honest and professional service. Jim's amazing attention to detail has meant that we have been really pleased with the work he has completed for us, and I would recommend him to any of my friends! We had fitted wardrobes in both of our main bedrooms and alcove units in our front room and dining room - all of which we are thrilled with. As well as Jims great work ethic he always proves to be a friendly and helpful person - which I believe is very important when you have people working in your home. I will not hesitate in asking JR Carpentry to carry out work for us in the future."

"Thank you so much for doing such a fantastic job, both with our bedroom wardrobes and the television cabinet. Both have transformed the rooms and had exactly the effect we had hoped for. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you (and in fact have done!) to our friends, and we wanted to say how happy we were with the standard of work you did for for us. Many thanks, Christopher & Karin Evans"

- Christopher Evans


"This is just to say thank you so much for the super alcove units you have installed in my sitting/dining rooms. I am absolutely delighted with them as they are extremely well made, exactly measured and beautifully finished in my Sanderson Cameo paint. Thank you also for the picture rail which has enhanced my sitting/dining room - I can't think why I didn't have one fitted years ago! If I need any more carpentry work done in the house I will certainly be in touch with you."

- Janice Brackenridge


"We first used JR Carpentry 10 years ago and were delighted with the cupboards Jim built in our living room. He has returned to us on several occasions to make computer tables, bedroom cupboards, and most recently he supplied and fitted lovely new timber garage doors for us when we had an emergency. Jim's work is excellent and at a reasonable price. He always checks to make sure we get exactly what we want and he fits the cupboards on site with minimum disruption, and paints them if required. I have found Jim and his wife Maria 100% trustworthy, very pleasant and talented - I am happy to leave them a key to my house while they do their job!"

- Jo Pfeifer, SW19


"Hi Jim

Just to say thank you for doing a great job on our wardrobes - really pleased with them and can't quite believe how quick it all was! If we need any more carpentry work done we shall definitely be in touch and will have no hesitation in recommending you to others.

Many thanks again

Tracy "

"It has been a pleasure working with you and I very much appreciate the care and attention to detail that goes into your work. I think I'm detail conscious, my Husband says I'm fussy and had unreasonable expectations for the alcove units but down to every dimension, cut out, cable slot and detail they are exactly what I asked you for and look stunning - we now just have to make sure the work on the rest of the room does them justice! Very much looking forward to the wardrobes and window seats!!"

- Alison Burstall


"Not only did Jim and Maria Riches do a wonderful job, but they were very professional, tidy and solved any little problems with great inventive solutions!  After asking them to build a wardrobe and chest of drawers, we called them again for a quite difficult angled bookcase and cupboard, and the result is just beyond what we had imagined!

Thank you again and we certainly recommend them!"

- Veronica and Gianluca


"J.R Carpentry were a pleasure to work with, they are extremely efficient, collaborative, professional and tidy (and not to mention very kind to a curious two year old!). We are so pleased with how our alcove units have turned out, they fit to perfection as if they had always been there. We will not hesitate in recommending them to family and friends!"
