Earlier this year we began searching for a new home. One of our friends recommended Mark to us, to undertake a building inspection of a property that attracted our attention. He promptly completed the inspection and gave us a practical, yet comprehensive assessment of the house at a very reasonable price. Any questions or queries were discussed and answered fully. As a result of our good introductory experience with Mark we retained him to carry out a further building inspection of another home that we were particularly interested in. This second assignment was conducted equally well and we subsequently bought this property. In his report Mark highlighted some remedial/renovation work that needed to be carried out and we took this into account when we negotiated the purchase. We then hired Mark and his team to undertake a building contract which involved the removal of a large rotting deck, the construction of a completely new deck with two sets of stairs; a series of internal modifications throughout the house; and strengthening of a wrap-around verandah. At the conclusion of the contract Mark compiled a maintenance plan for our new home. From our experience of using Mark on three important projects we can thoroughly recommend him for a range of building activities, both large and small. His particular attributes are as follows:

He is highly professional, produces quality work and maintains high standards

He is client-centred and respectful, taking our views into account

He has a strong work ethic and goes the extra mile

He hires good staff and is respectful and supportive of them and their development

He is enthusiastic, fun and pleasant to have around

He is mindful of budgets and time schedules

He is a good communicator and is willing to take and act on feedback [such as over-talking on occasions]

He does what he says he will do

Finally, he has a strong sense of integrity and trust

We thoroughly recommend him and would be happy to answer any questions.
