Feedback / Testimonials

E Duncan, Falkirk said on 30/06/2022:
Contacted John for our garage conversion following a recommendation from a friend. John got back to me straight away and came out in a couple of days. He then provided a quote shortly after, explaining everything that was needed. He turned up when he said he would, kept us up to date on what the next steps were. Extremely trustworthy, so much so we left him with a key when we were away over a weekend. He stuck to his quote, no hidden costs and we couldn’t be happier with the result. Would absolutely recommend.

Angela Ure, Larbert said on 13/05/2022: 
Absolutely delighted with our extension, John went out of his way to make sure everything was as we wanted and delivered a high standard of workmanship and superb attention to detail. Would be more than happy to recommend and will definitely use again..Great job John, thanks so much!

William McMartin, Laurieston said on 04/04/2022:
John built a wall for me and did a very professional job.  Would definitely recommend John to anyone. One of the best tradesman we have ever encountered.

A Forsyth, Larbert said on 01/04/2022:
I saw John working on a large extension in our street and when my husband took ill I approached him regarding converting our garage into a downstairs apartment. He stopped what he was doing, came down from the scaffolding and took the time to speak to me. I knew immediately he was the kind of person I could trust with the job. The conversion has now been completed giving us the required room, toilet/shower room and utility area. John and his team are honest “trusty” hardworking tradesmen who I would recommend to anyone.

Kenny Williamson, Falkirk said on 26/02/2022:
Thanks to John and his team for building a new load bearing wall between us and our next door neighbours. It looks great and we’re delighted with it.

S Beath, Falkirk said on 26/02/2022:
I would highly recommend John’s services and advice. I contacted him about replacing a retaining wall between my property and my neighbours. He was knowledgeable and contactable. He quoted a fair price and his work has been of a very high standard. His team have worked very well and despite weather related delays we are delighted with the results. I would not hesitate to recommend him or use him again.

Peter Mosson, Airth said on 23/09/2021:
We contacted John looking to have a brick and slab access stair built. Even though this was just a small build, John fitted us in and completed the job in a short space of time. John is a very professional and knowledgeable builder who I would not hesitate to use again and would recommend highly.

Alan Glen, Larbert said on 02/06/2021:
John fitted a new window installation onto the side of our house. From the start John was friendly and showed good knowledge of the job to be done. He ordered the window for us and gave a clear timetable for completion. Everything was done in a professional manner and we would recommend him to others.

Peter Lynch, Stenhousemuir said on 13/06/2020:
John created a structural opening in a standalone garage as per the design drawing to enable door installation.  Fair price and tidy job. Highly recommend and would definitely use again.

Claire Ward, Falkirk said on 12/06/2020:
John and his colleague worked well changing the front of my house to accommodate a door where a window has been.  He built a step to compliment the door. The finish is great, and the job was concluded very neatly.

Laura Greig, Larbert said on 22/02/2020:
John and his team carried out the brickwork at the front of my converted garage.  They were very professional and kept me in the loop at every stage and carried out a fantastic job.  I would use again and highly recommend.

Lesley Allan, Stenhousemuir said on 11/01/2020:
Just had John finish some work for me to demolish and rebuild my front step, from the moment I enquired it was a breeze, quick response and always kept up to date with progress, no issues, punctual and very polite , very competitive prices and most of all fabulous quality of work and I would highly recommend to anyone.   Thanks again!

Ewan Graham, Larbert said on 04/01/2020:
When we changed a Juliet balcony into a standard window John carried out the brickwork on the outside.  He did an excellent job at matching the brick and then took the new brickwork to fit in with the existing brickwork. Fantastic job. Highly recommended.

Kevin & Carol Corr, Larbert said on 23/12/2019:
We contacted John through Trustys as we were looking for a bricklayer for a single storey above garage extension.  John came and looked at the job and got back to us with a price very quickly. He advised us on materials and organised some of them for us. He explained everything he was doing as he went along and was so helpful and obliging. His workmanship and his attention to detail is excellent. His young apprentice, Carson is such lovely, polite and hardworking young man. He was so proactive and a brilliant help to him. What was very good is they always cleaned up and kept the area tidy. They have done a fantastic job and we as so pleased with their work and have already pencilled John in to do more work for us next year. He is such a perfectionist and takes pride in his work. Thanks for a great job John. See you next year.

Janice & Mark O’Donnell said on 15/12/2019:
I was recommended to contact John by another tradesman. He came and looked at the job and got back to us with a price very quickly. He explained everything he was doing as he went along. He organised everything for us. His workmanship is excellent, and his young apprentice is a lovely young man too and appeared to be a great help to him. They done a fantastic job and cleaned up after themselves. So folks if you need anything from a wall knocked down to make a room open plan (which is what we had done) to full conversions please give John a call. He is first class. Thanks for a great job John. I will certainly use your services again.

James Syme, Stenhousemuir said on 12/12/2019:
I found John’s details on Trustys and he has carried out work on behalf of my elderly Mother on two occasions.  He has replaced brickwork and pebble dash on her house and has installed a hatch in her floor in order to reach pipework.  John is an excellent builder and made a great job of the work done and the pebble dash was a great match.  He arrived on time each day and left everything clean and tidy.   John is a very considerate and genuine guy who is nice to deal with.  His pricing was spot on and I would absolutely recommend him to others.

Sammy, Falkirk said on 01/07/2019:
I had john round doing another job for me.  Excellent work and quality of finish.

Sam O’Donnell, Falkirk said on 09/05/2019:
I contacted John about a quote for a new patio, he called round explained how he would do the work and we agreed on a price was very fair.  He fitted the job in between other work and I am delighted with the job.  He cleaned up after he finished, and I would definitely recommend him.

F McDonald, Falkirk said on 15/04/2019:
Wonderful double job: a lintel and then an enlargement to our doorstep.  We were delighted by the work done, by the friendly service offered and by the attention to detail.  In a world where one worries over problems with builders and roofers, this was a blessing.  My wife loved the improvements; I cannot recommend John too highly.  A big thanks.

Raymond, Stirling said on 04/04/2019:
Recently had my front window replaced by John and Carson.  The job was “major surgery” as three concrete lintels, internal and external spanning some 3metres had to be replaced with a steel beam and outer Catnic lintel.  The workmanship was very professional and efficient.  John kept us up to speed with every stage of the work as it progressed.  He takes pride in his work and is attentive to detail and the finished product.  A very tidy “operation” was completed on schedule.  John and Carson are very pleasant hard-working builders and I would not hesitate in using John and his company for any future building projects.

R Bell, Falkirk said on 13/03/2019:
Required a replacement window lintel and John was very professional in his work. Very pleased with the finished job.

Sandy & John Harvie, Stenhousemuir said on 11/03/2019:
We were happy with the quote we got from John for laying a patio and replacing slabs on a path.  He and Carson worked hard and came up with some suggestions which enhanced the work. It was obvious that John wanted to leave the job as if he had done it for himself – excellent! I would thoroughly recommend this firm for good quality, fair pricing and being trustworthy.

Mark & Anna Hunter, Falkirk said on 26/02/2019:
John and his team carried out the brickwork for the foundations, underbuilding and then did the brickwork for the entire house for our self-build.   They were hard working, reliable and always did what needed to be done and went above and beyond, resulting in a great job.  Our joiner said he had never before seen such precision in the brickwork when he came on site to erect the kit!  Carson was an asset to Johns team and was a willing helper and also went above and beyond to help when on site.  They were a friendly team and a pleasure to work with and nothing was any hassle!  I would definitely recommend John to others who are looking for a good builder!

Chris, Larbert said on 26/02/2019:
John replaced a small wall outside our house that had fallen apart due to weather damage. He did not replace the wall like for like but gave us a great alternative that should prevent it happening again.  Great work and a fair price would definitely recommend him.

Kirsty Potter, Falkirk said on 25/10/2018:
Couldn’t be happier with the work John has done for us.  Very Professional and to the highest of standards.  Also very knowledgeable and fair pricing.  He used the best materials and there is never any skimping on his behalf or work.   Always stuck to his word and all his team of tradesmen he used / recommended were very trustworthy and reliable.  He even saved us money when buying our garage door by recommending a place he had previously used.  Carson who works with him was always happy to be getting on at work too.  A superb team! I would 100% use again.  If you’re thinking of using them, do it! You won’t be disappointed!

Craig Small, Larbert said on 25/10/2018:
I highly recommend John and his team.  They recently removed 3 internal walls and opened an external wall in preparation for a large sliding door to create an open plan living/ dining area.  He communicated everything that was happening and would answer any question I had, no matter how often I called.   They were always on time, there when they said they would be and tidied up behind themselves.  Will definitely be using him again.

M. Taylor, Falkirk said on 15/05/2018:
John and his team were to build a small retaining wall and steps in our garden. Access to the back garden is difficult but there were no complaints about having to carry bricks, cement, coping stones etc down into the garden.  The weather delayed the completion slightly but the quality of the work more than made up for any delays. Everything was tidied up and no mess left. We are delighted with the quality of his work and would recommend John and his team.

Carol Fincham, Falkirk said on 30/04/2018: We have just had a new garden wall built between our drive and our neighbour’s. John Monaghan is conscientious and very hard working. He takes a real pride in his work. Everything has been completed thoroughly and to the highest standard. He is always friendly and obliging. We would certainly ask him to do more work for us and recommend him to others.

A & M Nicol, Reddingmuirhead said on 30/04/2018:
I phoned John as I required repair work to a front wall damaged by a driver.  Although he was busy, he managed to deal with it and made a very successful job of repairing the wall. He was friendly, efficient and cleared away all debris from the drive and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to you.

Mr & Mrs AC Steel, Bonnybridge said on 28/03/2018:
John has successfully completed a number of jobs for us to a very high standard.   A dwarf wall for our conservatory was built using stone to match our house and included cut-outs for brick lights to be installed.   Additionally, 19m2 of Indian Sandstone patio has been prepared and laid with terrific results.  John has been in constant communication and is very approachable to discuss requirements.  My wife and I are delighted with his work and would have no hesitation using him for any future projects.

Colin Barron, Stenhousemuir said on 16/03/2018:
John fitted new sills to a window. He was prompt came to see the job when he said and once we agreed the price he came as soon as weather allowed and did a good tidy job. Would recommend him and would use him again.

Jackie, Falkirk said on 05/03/2018:
John and team removed two interior walls in my kitchen, installed LED spotlights and removed the ceiling artex. The job was not quite as simple as expected, this didn’t cause them any issue they worked tirelessly to ensure the deadline was met and transformed my kitchen. They did a fantastic job, from the intial quote to completion – couldn’t recommend them enough. Would definitely use them again.

Janette, Falkirk said on 15/01/2018:
John and his team did the building work for our garage convention and we are delighted with all aspects of John’s work. Approachable, friendly and knowledgeable we would not hesitate to use John again and recommend him to others. He was completely trustworthy and clear in all aspects of his work. We were able to contact him easily and he replied quickly. He was flexible and reliable throughout the project.

Sam & Shona, Airth said on 04/01/2018:
Had John Monaghan re-build our rear access steps to our house recently. His work was excellent, and we would not hesitate to use him again and would recommend him to others without question.

Kenny Marshall, Falkirk said on 02/12/2017:
John Monaghan And Steven did a fantastic job rebuilding our house wall that was recently damaged .
First class service by first class tradesmen.
Communication was key to this job being completed in a certain timeframe between John, ourselves and the rough caster.
John excelled in this department giving us regular updates about the job  , even down to weather updates for the brick laying /rough casting to go ahead successfully .
The whole job was completed within a few days to an extremely high standard at a very reasonable cost.
I would recommend John Monaghan Bricklayers to anyone and would have no hesitation in using them again myself .

Steven Wyper, Falkirk said on 01/12/2017:
I got John to build our new double garage , he gave a clear and well explained quote and at a fair price . I’m delighted with the finished article its been built to a very high standard and even when John hit some obstacles he found a work-around , he even accommodated some last minute changes to the build, extra windows and doors ! John and Steven are thoroughly nice blocks to deal with and i’d have no hesitation recommending him for anyone considering a building project . Thanks Trusty’s !

David & Diane Niblo, Larbert said on 05/11/2017:
Just recently had a single storey extension built on to my house and John Monaghan and his team did all the brick work, firstly lining the foundations then all brick work and window sills. Really pleased with the result. They worked hard and are nice guys. I would highly recommend John to anyone -great job!

Steven Band, Falkirk said on 10/10/2017:
We employed John Monaghan to carry out building work on our house, assisted by Stephen and Jim to replace 3 lintels, reduce a window and rough cast the wall,  John and his team carried out the work to a very high standard. John is a very experienced bricklayer and gave advice where necessary to enable decisions to be made to improve the overall end result. He repaired broken old air vents to ensure the finished wall looked great.  I would have no hesitation in recommending John and his team.  All staff on site were courteous, friendly and polite, worked hard and tidied up after themselves. Many thanks for a job well done.

A Goring, Brightons said on 12/06/2017:
John came and built two retaining walls, a set of steps and some raised beds in my garden. He did a fantastic job, even when the work was more than expected. He worked incredibly hard and kept me updated as he went along. He was flexible, listened to what I wanted and gave good advice too. The work is excellent, he’s very professional and I always felt I was in safe hands. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

Michael Dickie, Falkirk said on 04/05/2017:
John Monaghan – Builder – Enlarged our patio and replaced paving slabs in our back garden. A very professional job conducted by a very skilled bricklayer — truly a great result and this has completely transformed our back garden. He has great communication skills and fully explained what was required to be done and I thoroughly recommend him as a first class tradesman.

JOHN MONAGHAN – New driveway and fencing – Absolutely thrilled with new drive, it looks great and has been done to a very high standard and quality! Work done quickly and flexibly. John went out of his way to make sure everything went really smoothly. Would highly recommend this builder!

Fiona Quirk, Redding said on 12/04/2016:
JOHN MONAGHAN BRICKLAYERS converted my bedroom window into a patio door and window with disabled wheelchair ramp outside. From start to finish I was highly impressed with the work that John and his team did for me. John was excellent at keeping in touch, especially when then were delays due to the weather. It was clear that John has pride in his work and he works hard to do a good job. The end result is superb and I have no hesitation in recommending John Monaghan Bricklayers.

FK1 Design said on 11/02/2016:
I employed John Monaghan to carry out works to my property and I cannot speak highly enough of the service and quality of work he provided. He discussed all stages with me and made his own recommendations which I was happy to be guided by. At the end of the job he came back and tidied up leaving things in great order. I would happily recommend John Monaghan to anyone who is looking to carry out works to their home.

Mrs P, Larbert said on 27/01/2016:
JOHN MONAGHAN BUILDERS We can not thank John enough for coming to our rescue. Lintel above my daughters bedroom window all crumbled away due to water damage when the window was taken out to be replaced with a new one. The very respective window company walked off the job with no other advice but to get a builder out yellow pages to fix. Through word of month I was recommended John and really can’t thank him enough as for us it was a stressful time as the lintel ran from Eve to Eve on a high end wall with extra rough cast damage. John reassured us, work completed and we can not be any happier, even the rough cast stones used matched for a 50 year old house.

Jack Grangemouth said on 10/01/2016:
I would like to take this opportunity to say how much I was delighted with the building work carried out by JOHN MONAGHAN, he knocked down a supporting wall in my house and blocked off two doors, John arrived when he said, cleaned up as he went along and at the end, working with his plasterer Jim the two did a grand job and I have no hesitation in recommending them or in fact having him back for any more work I may need done.

Dave Cooper said on 05/01/2016:
I used JOHN MONAGHAN BUILDERS to create a new opening and fit a new upvc window to the side of my house. I met with John and informed him of my requirements and he got back in touch very quickly with a competitive quote. His work from start to finish was outstanding, he was easy to deal with and kept me informed of his progress. The wall was rough casted and the window looks like it has always been there. He is a very tidy worker, he removed all of the waste and washed down the wall and paths when finished. John would not accept full payment until the work was completely finished and i was 100% happy. I would not hesitate to use him again.

Gayle Forsyth said on 29/12/2015:
I am really happy with the job that John has completed on my house and I have already requested that he carries out further repairs. He gave me an estimate up front and kept me informed throughout. I would definitely recommend to family and friends.

Jamie Munro said on 30/08/2015:
John Monaghan did work on a dwarf wall and concrete floor for a Greenhouse in Renfrew. Very good job overall. Happy with the price and service throughout. A week after settling payment was a problem with some of the facing bricks being a bit loose, and John came back out to fix them. No problems since.

Mr K Myles, Larbert said on 20/07/2015:
I recently had John and his team price some builder work for me, for a large extension. We met up and discussed my plans and what I was looking for and he returned a quote promptly. I felt the price and programme that was discussed to be very fair and reasonable. The package that I employed John to procure included groundworks, foundations, concrete raft, block under-building, floating floor with concrete screed and drainage for a large single storey extension of 30m2. He also demolished a bay window, grubbed up the founds and made the property water tight and secure. He helpfully provided a scaffold at short notice for my joiners and roofer (with whom id already agreed costs with before talking to John). He approached the job in very diligent manner and i found him to be honest, responsive and always helpful in his approach in dealing with questions and changes. I believe communication is the key to working on any building job and i was pleased with John who kept me regularly informed. Personally I was very happy with the work and attention given. and will not hesitate to have John back carrying out other work for me.

Leon Megger said on 11/02/2015:
I have just used John Monaghan Builders for garden drainage work The work was carried out in a very professional and competent manner completing the work exactly as quoted. As a result of our complete satisfaction of the work carried out we are asking John to quote for further work to be carried out.

VR Hutton, Central Falkirk said on 15/11/2014:
We had John Monaghan to carry out pointing work/brick work. He was fab, he is a nice guy who text us to advise of when he was coming and carried out the work to a high standard. We did ask for and receive a quote in advance which was given. John is a genuine guy who left all areas clean and tidy and have given his name to other family for work on their homes. We had complete trust in him. So a fab guy who we can highly recommend!

Strathie said on 11/11/2014:
Just had John Monaghan again to replace our boundary wall. His work is done to perfection and at a reasonable price. He is a very nice chap and would not hesitate to use him again for any building work.

Jean McCall said on 21/04/2014:
John built up part of a wall, put new coping stones on and just at the weekend he renewed my front step. very pleased with work done. Very nice man would recommend him.

Bill Paterson said on 09/10/2013:
John Monaghan has undertaken several projects in a major renovation in central Falkirk. A house that had been boarded up for five years required some fairly major surgery, new walls, slap throughs and an entire floor replacement. John was excellent at turning up, giving helpful suggestions and then providing detailed quotes. His work is also very good and timely. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

Sandy Paterson, Falkirk said on 09/10/2013:
John Monaghan has worked for me on 2 projects and his performance was excellent on both. He is a builder specializing in the brickwork, stonework , foundations area. One project for me involved a very complex retaining tanked wall which John managed perfectly. A helpful, resourceful and reliable builder who I am happy to recommend.

Giles Guthrie said on 04/10/2013:
John Monaghan built our house then 6 months later our large workshop. Hard working, reliable, fair priced. A family man and although we didn’t know him before doing our work he is now a family friend. Totally trustworthy, definitely recommend not just his work but as a person too.
