    Bit disappointed that GEO BUILD was not amongst the recommendations in the 'patio contractor' thread.

    Disappointed in myself on reflection.

    Many thanks to Joe and Angela for hosting the meeting on Wednesday night.

    It was good to meet the others and we now have a plan of action.

    Ideally we'd like more people to come forward with their experience of Mark Jackson so that we can strengthen our case.

    If anyone reading this has been a victim of Geo Build but doesn't want to come on the forum publicly, or even if you don't want to attend any meetings that's fine. One of us will take your details and anything you tell us privately will remain confidential within the group.
    Please contact myself or @Joski with a private message.

    Also if anyone knows anyone that has been affected by Mark Jackson then please alert them to this thread.

    Perhaps setup a Gmail account for it, some people might not want to register on a forum to contact you. Or use a disposable forwarding email like https://www.33mail.com/ for it so you don't need to go through the rigmarole of making a Google Account.

    Following Carole's message there is now an email address available for those who would prefer to contact us confidentially by email (rather than using the forum). The email address is:

    I would like to say a big thank you to everyone at last weeks meeting. Whilst working for us, Mark Jackson of Geo Build Stafford made us feel that we were being unrealistic in our requests to have our extension completed to an average standard. Although some of the damage caused to our home was by his subcontractors, Jason Ward- carpenter, window fitter, roofer and general odd job man and Simon Barnes- the "ninja" floor fitter (or not as it turned out!!!!), it was Mark Jackson who took our money and gave us 12 months of hell. After listening to many stories off lots of different people, although distressing, it gives me a great sense of relief to know that my family were not the only ones to trust such a convincing bunch of conmen.
    I now want to appeal to anybody who has suffered as a result of Mark Jackson to come forward and contact us on the above email. He is one man, who has very few people at his side now the truth is being revealed. Do not be afraid to come forward, there are lots of us who are supporting each other. Mark Jackson cannot be allowed to carry on lying and causing distress to any other families. Help us to stop him.

    Thankyou to everyone who has come forward, and for the very positive meeting the other night. We need to make sure that Mark Jackson and his company Geo build stop ripping homes apart and walking off with thousands of pounds....only to shut down his business and start one up again the next day.
    The stress and financial burden has been terrible.

    Well we're finally underway in recovering our building project, having now employed another builder. Him and his guys have done more work in 3 weeks than Geobuild managed in 14, including putting right a lot of the previous work. It's been a totally different experience - full working days, guys turning up when they say, cleaning up after themselves and actually reading drawings!!! It kind of restores our faith in tradesman. It's easy to forget when you've dealt with Mark Jackson that there are good people out there!

    Are you happy with how work is progressing now? It's been two months since it started and appears to be stalled at the moment.

    Hi Jonah, sorry for delay first time I’ve been on here for a while. Mark and GEO are pretty much finished there bit (the build) we’ve had a few minor delays with other contractors - windows, rendering, services etc but I contracted them separately. GEO will be back to do final finishes when that’s complete, should all be complete in 4 weeks which is about 2 weeks later than planned.. but hey you can’t win them all!!
