About Us



John Ellis Builders started trading under the name of JGW Ellis and Sons many years ago by the first generation John Ellis. It was then changed to John Ellis Builders in 1988 by John Ellis, the second generation. Since then John has been joined by his son Adam in running the company.

The company has been involved in a wide variety of projects amounting a vast knowledge of the building industry over the years. Projects have included new builds of varying sizes, barn conversions, extensions, alterations, basements, loft conversions and industrial buildings.

John Ellis Builders normally works as the principle contractor and can provide all trades needed such as electrics, plumbing, heating and decoration on top of everything required to build the fabric of the property.

We pride ourselves on the personal level of involvement and communication that is required to make the project run smoothly, ensuring the client’s requirements are fulfilled.

The building industry is changing and different methods of construction and better performing products are coming forward to the market. We like to keep up to date with these technological developments and implement them in the projects we undertake.

 The company also does its own developments – please see the current development page to see the latest projects for sale.

John Ellis Builders have been the proud sponsors of Boroughbridge AFC for over 30 years – please see www.boroughbridgeafc.com for their latest results.

At the 2014 LABC West Yorkshire Building Excellence Awards we were proud winners of the best domestic extension after being nominated by the building inspector.
