"First class service from Commercial Manager, Derek McIntyre, at all stages of the project. Once on site, Gavin Brock and his installation team were skilled and highly efficient. JML SIPs are a great team and know their product."
G. Smith, Strathaven
"For you and your team to hit your estimated build costs at every turn and to do it before deadline was a real credit to your organisation and efficiency and a massive relief to ourselves. We could not have asked for better building contractors. John was so patient and tolerant of my crazy plans and last minute alterations to the house."
Mr & Mrs Wilson, Tree Cottage, Killearn
"We are extremely pleased with the professional service provided by JML SIPs. Not only is the work to a high standard but also the positive and client specific approach was exceptional throughout."
Robin Wilson, Auchterarder

Ian Reynolds, Killikrankie
"JML SIPs were very professional and conscientious throughout all the stages of the construction of this high specification property. Their attention to detail, responsiveness and service provision were first class."
Douglas Sheasby, Dunblane
"We are delighted with the high standard of renovation and extension work recently carried out by JML SIPs. John and Robin proved invaluable with help and advice as the project progressed and all the direct tradesmen employed by them were helpful, courteous and efficient. No problem was too big or small and they were very flexible with all arrangements."
Bob Lindsay, Dunkeld
"The team were courteous and hard working, arriving promptly on site every day. The site was also kept very tidy with cut blocks and slates stacked for use before any new materials were cut. Every comment from the local community about the build has been positive and I am happy to pass on the recommendation to anyone considering building a house."
Gordon Motion, Stirlingshire
JML SIPs provided a first class service in building our four-bedroom house in Moray. We were highly impressed with the design consultant who listened to our requests, came back with drawings and ideas and with us decided on the house that woud meet all our needs. We were supported through the whole building process, were consulted in respect of planning and authorisation and we felt that we were listened to all through the experience. It is not too much to say that we enjoyed the journey. During the build the workmen were well mannered and hard working. They were clearly skilled craftsmen and were confident and efficient in their work. The manager and designer were attentive to our request for change and were creative in managing any problems that arose. When we contacted the office manager and the reception staff they were friendly and very helpful. We had an excellent experience with JML SIPs and would certainly use them again if we were to build another house.
