"I have known JD Glover for over thirteen years. I have always found JD to be reliable, honest and helpful in my dealings with him and his Company.
JD Glover's work is of a high standard and the projects are planned well, keeping the construction flowing smoothly. The building teams that I have met on site are always helpful and polite. Construction of fine difficult detail work is always presented as a rewarding challenge.
I would have no problem in working with JD again and would not hesitate to recommend Glover Homes to anyone thinking of using them for their building project."

"We are the current owners of the “Cape Cod” house featured in the Glover Homes website. In our opinion, JD and his highly skilled team have created a new benchmark in quality, and in standards of construction. The attention to detail and the high standards of finish throughout the house has created a secure and lasting home, as well as a special sense of pride for its owners.
We have found JD honest and trustworthy to deal with. His communication is excellent, and always makes himself available where or whenever he can.
We also recently engaged JD to work on a commercial office refurbishment, - as well as some exterior renovations, without going to market or tendering. His knowledge and experience played an integral part in successfully managing and completing a potentially difficult job, - working around the tenant’s requirements in an orderly and professional manner. His high level of quality and workmanship was maintained throughout.
We have no hesitation in recommending JD Glover and his team, for any residential or commercial work."

"JD Glover built a John D'Anvers designed home for my wife and I in 2001/02. We had chosen a cliff site in Torbay and careful planning was rewarded with building execution of the highest order from JD and his team.
At every step of the building process JD was always helpful, willing to discuss anything and ready to make a decision that enhanced the building process. He kept a cool head, has integrity and ensured his sub contractors met the standards required of his company.
If you are looking to engage Glover Developments to build for you, ensure you spend a little time talking to JD about your project to enable you to gauge for yourself how you and JD will get on together during the building process. We were very happy with his work and ethics and could recommend his company to anybody."
"JD Glover has built 2 large complex homes and refurbished a commercial office for me over a period of 9 years. I can only recommend JD and his team for the work they have carried out. "No" and "can’t be done" are not words in JD's dictionary. He always brings a cheerful disposition to all projects and is happy to make sensible and constructive suggestions where appropriate.
He communicates well with architects, engineers and all sub trades. He brings many years’ experience in all aspects of the building trade to the project in hand both at high end residential and more straightforward commercial and residential work.
I have no hesitation in recommending JD Glover and his team of craftsmen."
"JD Glover and his team of craftsmen have refurbished two homes for us over the last ten years. We have been very impressed with their workmanship and work ethics, to the extent that we had them build our new home last year, without going to the market for pricing.
I have no hesitation in recommending JD Glover to anyone contemplating building a new home, adding an extension or refurnishing their current home."

"When we decided to take the big step of building our dream house, we thought it would be one of the most exciting stages of our lives. We went through what we thought was a thorough process and hired a builder recommended to us by a "building broker" as one of the best. They assured us they had done their checks. We also found out we were expecting our first child. Then we got hit by the bombshell that our builder had gone into liquidation. We were devastated and began to seriously doubt if we should or could finish what we started. The stress this caused was huge.
Then along came Glover Developments. JD Glover was recommended to us by a family friend and we met with him to discuss finishing our build. He was open, and honest about what we needed to do, the hurdles we might face and what actions they would need to take to rectify some of the disaster that had already occurred. We were immediately struck by how friendly, genuine, professional and knowledgeable JD is. He showed genuine empathy to us and seemed to make it his personal mission to finish our dream house. When you have invested so much into your home and disaster strikes, you want someone you can trust. JD was down to earth, managed our expectations and kept us informed the whole way through. He made the building process fun again. He provided us with regular updates, we knew what to expect the following week and if there were unforeseen delays such as weather etc, he let you know what would be happening.
JD was always available and nothing was too much trouble for him or his team. Accordingly, our dream house was completed far better than we ever thought possible, and we love it and know it will be our family home for many years to come. We thought we would never build again. Now it is a matter of we will only build with JD when we build next time. We sincerely recommend him to anyone wanting to keep the process fun, exciting and as stress free as possible, but also safe in the knowledge you are getting a quality, well-built home."

"We employed JD Glover and his team to carry out recent alterations to our 24 year old home. Principally, the alterations were to add a covered, upstairs deck, create a new dining area downstairs, and also to replace the existing roof. This work involved the removal of the original insulclad cladding from the back of the house. After discussions with our architect, and JD Glover, we decided not to reinstate the exterior with insulclad, rather to replace the cladding on the entire house and upgrade to pre-stained cedar weatherboards, thus giving the house a clean, new, modern look.
Our architect recommended that we should take full advantage of the beautiful quality cedar we were installing by using epoxy joints to achieve a clean finished look rather than use soakers. This technique required a high level of craftsmanship, which was skillfully provided by JD’s crew. The result is outstanding and has drawn many favourable comments. Our house has been transformed into a very desirable home.
The relationship and communication with JD Glover throughout the entire upgrade was excellent. He worked extremely well with us, and the architect. We absolutely love our house and would recommend JD and his company to anyone looking for a top quality finish."

"As a specialist sub contractor to superior homes, I have worked on about a dozen projects with JD Glover. All have been superbly finished with attention to detail that is seldom surpassed. JD and his staff achieve the highest standards with a minimum of fuss, and they are one of the best companies to work with.
I would recommend them to anyone looking at building."

“Warmup Heating Systems has been fortunate enough to be involved with JD and Glover Developments as a sub-trade contractor and for over a decade now. His attention to detail, planning and organising is of the highest standard - if not the bench mark itself for all sub-trades to aspire to. I’ve always been tremendously impressed with his calm positive problem solving abilities and friendly positive attitude towards everyone.
