About

In 1955, my father Herbert Barker founded H Barker & Son, a local building contractor based in Bury, Lancashire. At the age of 21, I became a partner in what has become a trusted, reliable business that has been established for over 50 years. Now known as J&C Barker Builders Ltd, the values of the business remain the same: choice, value & high quality workmanship you can depend on.

Based in Bury, Lancashire, I cover a radius of approx. 25-30 miles, and further depending on the nature/duration of the job.

Please give us a call.

After reading previous reviews I asked Jim for a quote to move an L shaped section of garden wall and to key it back in with an existing section of the wall. He came out very quickly to see the job and also responded very quickly with a reasonable quote. Within two weeks he returned to undertake the work which he completed to an excellent standard in two and a half days. He worked hard and managed to recover the bricks and reuse them without the need to use new ones. I have asked Jim quote for further work and my neighbour is also going to contact him. I will certainly use him again, thank you for a good job.

Jim replaced the lintels above four windows and did some repointing in such cold and atrocious weather. He was prompt every day and worked really hard without a single complaint. His work is first class and I’m so happy with the finished job. I would totally recommend him. Such a lovely guy too.

I contacted Jim following a leak after the recent bad weather. Jim was able to quickly come round, take a look at the problem, and provide a quote. A few days later he was back doing the job. He was very quick and tidy. He turned up when he said he was going to. His work looks excellent. Jim was polite, respectful, and pleasant to chat to. I paid the price quoted. I would definitely recommend Jim's services.

Communication was excellent from day one. He kept us up to date via e-mail. After initial contact and a visit assessment, Jim was able to give us a written quotation for the work needed, which was supported by photographs. He was punctual on each day and carried out all repairs to a standard well above our expectations. A very friendly builder and we would definitely use him again. Glad we went with a Which?

Jim is a great guy. Very pleasant and works away without any problems. He was Covid aware and gave a very good quote for work on guttering. The first day it was pouring with rain and Jim was out there starting the work. Paid exactly what was quoted and have no hesitation in recommending Jim to other customers. It is a relief that our work has finally been done after trying to get other people out to fix the gutters. Will definitely use Jim again.

Could not recommend enough
Could not recommend Jim enough, he was punctual every day and completed the job ( an internal wall removing and plastering) to a very high standard, which we are so pleased with. Did it all with a bit of humour also! We felt very comfortable having him in the house as he was respectful too. Will be the first person I contact when I want more work doing in the future.

We waited a while for the job to be done but we had told him there was no particular rush. He replaced the front gutter and downspout and cleaned the facia boards. This was completed to our satisfaction, the only complaint being that he did not clean the windows of the stains which his work had caused.

I employed Jim to make good the plaster work in my house following a full electrical re wire. It was quite a challenging task but he has made a great job of it, completed ahead of time and left the house tidy. His timekeeping was spot on and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. I would definitely employ him again in the future.

Jim responded very quickly when we had a new patch of damp on a bedroom wall. He identified the problem and provided a clear quote for the work. Turned up on time and carried out repairs to the roof to a high standard. Good communication throughout and we took the liberty of asking for a few extra repairs to the chimney to be done while the scaffolding was in place which Jim did without compliant. Would definitely use again
