Peter was our builder, building manger on the extensive renovation of our Wahroonga home. You may be considering Peter Beeman and his team from Smith & Sons Ryde to renovate, build or repair your property. We engaged Peter and his team for 7 months to extensively internally and externally renovate our property. In summary Peter did a fantastic job. In more detail he takes care of the detail, does not take the easy option and is up open and up front about dealing with the inevitable problems during the build. His building skills are first rate. He is building his team and learning how to be a good manger and he holds his team to his high standards. His relationships with subbies and other skilled tradies is also strong and he is learning to be discerning and choose the right partners that reflect his high standards. The final test for us was to see if Peter finished the job properly and return to complete all these end of project completion jobs. He has fully delivered on this. His work ethic, attitude and attention to detail was first rate. He is trustworthy, polite and in a tough industry a good person. Experience will turn Peter into a fine builder. If I have any advice in dealing with Peter it is to keep the communication open and straight forward. Have a beer with him, treat him as an equal. Talk to him not at him and pay his bills on time. He will stress if he is feeling stressed and ultimately that is not healthy. In summary with the above advice in mind Voni and I fully recommend Peter Beeman and he would be our first choice on our next project.
