Client Testimonials


Paul and Carole Kirby

"It’s been a pleasure working alongside such a professional, caring building company. We would recommend Staley to anyone. The house continues to get lots of new admirers and we love it!"


Paul and Fiona Newbury

"Many thanks for the excellent work carried out by your team in the building of our porch in a conservation area.
From the very outset you provided a competitive and realistic quotation and were very honest about the work schedule and what would be involved. Where amendments to the design were necessary these were discussed thoroughly with options being explained clearly, along with the implications for the build itself.

The workmanship was first class and your team are a credit to both themselves and to you. They were tidy, courteous and kept us updated throughout the schedule. The problems encountered during the build were handled in a professional manner resulting in a build which we are very pleased with. Even our neighbours have commented on the excellent finish achieved by yourselves.

We have no hesitation in recommending your services to prospective clients or allowing you to show potential clients the workmanship displayed on our porch."


Paul Goad

"Jonny Staley and his team transformed our dark, unkempt and Spartan back yard area into a really pleasing courtyard, which is a pleasure to spend time in.

He listened carefully to our requirements, and came up with a very pleasing design. His team worked hard to ensure that the design was implemented in a professional, timely and cost-effective way."


Helen Hays, Garden Designer.

"For garden designers it is really important to find a landscape contractor you can trust and rely on. Jonny Staley always respects my designs and specifications and provides help and advice when I need it. I know that if Jonny is building one of my designs we will work together to provide the best solutions for the clients and their garden."


Andy and Sarah Law

"We have employed a number of trades in this renovation since 2007, however, none of them have come close to the service you have given us. Be it structural work, stonework, flagging, flooring, carpentry, plasterwork or plumbing, the service we have received has been nothing short of superb. Even the decorator your recommended has been top notch.

The costings we have received from you have always been accurate, competitive and the work completed either in the timeframe we have requested, or indeed suggested by you at the outset.

All of your guys are courteous, polite, hardworking, and particularly good at their trades, and it's obvious that you have picked the best for your company, and that they really appreciate working for you.

Thank you again for your help and continued assistance with our Grade II renovation."


Mrs M Lawson

"Staley Stonework were recommended locally to us, and we have received excellent work and excellent service from them. We have been very impressed by Jonny Staley's team, who worked on a challenging 2-year restoration project on part of a historic landscape registered with English Heritage Parks and Gardens. Throughout the project skilled traditional walling has been consistently delivered with sensitivity for the landscape (and the owners!) and with professional care. The completed job looks stunning. Thank you very much."


John Lee

"My partner and I were really delighted with the final result of the hard landscaping and building project that Jonny Staley and his team completed for us. Having completed three major building projects before, we know that plans do not always translate to reality as you would expect, but they did for us with Staley.

Jonny was always readily by phone or email, which was really reassuring with a project cost of around £100k. He is very sensible and approachable. This makes working with him a real pleasure.

I was very pleased that the quotation for the work was the price actually charged despite problems being found as the job progressed. Staley's timing was very good. When there was a deadline (e.g. the delivery of glazing) people appeared from nowhere to express that part of the job. He hit all the deadlines we agreed which was really helpful and very professional.

Overall, I would say that Staley provided us with a high quality build and delivered it in a very professional manner - we remain very happy customers, over two years after the job's end."


Mr and Mrs Lennox

"Staley Stonework undertook a major renovation of our Victorian townhouse in York in 2008. We were absolutely delighted with the workmanship & professionalism of Jonny Staley and his team & the results were stunning. Jonny is a quick ,creative thinker who was able to accommodate a request for a laundry shoot spanning four floors in a 150 year old house!

Despite the complexity of the project, Jonny maintained excellent communication & I was consulted continually.

The result has been a beautiful & sympathetically restored period home from what had been 5 flats & which continues to bring us great pleasure."


Rachel Pedley

"Building your own house is a daunting step in life, but with Staley Stonework our house was completed two weeks ahead of schedule, on budget and exactly to plan, and we are so pleased with the result.

The team were pleasant and polite and professional. Jonny Staley personally project managed all aspects of the process, steering us through the myriad of decisions with patience, integrity and clarity. We would not hesitate to employ them again."


Matthew Scrafton

"Staley Stonework did more than just extend our house and landscape our gardens, they turned it into the dream home we always wanted. Jonny Staley and his team worked tirelessly to build our two storey extension and when problems arose due to the architect’s errors and omissions, Jonny liaised with the architect and Building Control to solve them.

Staley Stonework came to us highly recommended and gave us a very competitive quote. We are more than happy to pass on our recommendation to prospective clients and our thanks to the company."
