Testimonials from Our Clients

Leigh S.

I am thrilled with the result of my renovated apartment. From first contacting Damien I found Smith & Sons Cairns South to be professional and helpful. Damien gave me a precise quote and detailed every aspect of my complete apartment renovation. He was helpful at every stage and very accommodating with my last minute variations that I wanted done. Nothing was too much trouble. Adam reached out to me to introduce himself as my site supervisor and was friendly, helpful and always available. I live interstate and Adam kindly took pictures and kept me updated the whole way through the renovation which kept the project very exciting for me. The job was started and finished on time, on budget and to top quality. I would highly recommend Smith & Sons Cairns South to anybody and would use them again without hesitation in the future. The whole process was a lot of fun and the Smith & Sons Cairns South team made sure it was completely stress free! Thank you!

Ian and Jen W.

I just wanted to reiterate how happy Ian and I are with our major bedroom and ensuite renovation. From day one we had confidence in you, and the rest of the team were excellent ambassadors for Smith and Sons R & E Cairns South.

Mitch and Tim were not only personable and considerate of us and our home, their work was of the highest standard. Adam as the renovation supervisor was on hand if we needed him and kept us informed of each day's expectations. He too was extremely professional and thoughtful.  

This was a five week renovation and at any time on any day we had Mitch and or Tim or Adam together with plasterers, plumbers, electricians and painters. To a man they were respectful of our home and were excellent trades people. Many thanks also to Brian and his team.

We would happily recommend you to any prospective client and would have no hesitation in contacting you again for any future renovations.

Lynda T.

We were really impressed by the team's dependable, professional and quality work. We had new floors put in to our apartment, which we're really pleased with. The team worked very hard to achieve a beautiful finish within the couple of days specified. There was minimum disruption for us and everything restored to order immediately after the job. I can't recommend Smith & Sons more highly.

Tony & Chris N.

We chose Smith & Sons Cairns South to do a complete inside and out renovation of our 1980's bungalow. The home had been rented out for many years and was in a sad state of repair. Our renovation was to give us a winter retreat as well as make it ready for short term and holiday rentals.

Damien from Smith & Sons was the most responsive and helpful builder we contacted. He put a lot of time into discussing plans and options with us, before we took out a contract.

The building works were conducted in a very professional manner. We were most impressed by the communication with Damien, his own team, and all the sub-contractors that were used on the job. Everyone displayed enormous pride in workmanship and in going the extra mile to complete the renovation to extra-ordinary standard.

We recommend Damien and the team from Smith & Sons to anyone considering a quality renovation.

We had a small water leak which became a larger one.  Smith & Sons came and had a look, saw the problem and fixed it.  They were courteous, reliable, answered their emails and phones every time, went into detail and explained the procedures.  If you want to get something done and done properly then call Damien at Smith & Sons.

Erin and Henry S.

The workmanship is above expectations. The attention to detail was outstanding. Your input and knowledge made the renovations so much easier with first class results. To say I am happy with the results is an understatement.

Your input alone saved us thousands of dollars. I took all your suggestions on board and benefited financially and the results were spectacular for a fraction of the cost. Thank you to you and all your tradies for such an amazing job. I will recommend (and have already) anyone who is looking for renovations to be undertaken.

Daniel & Sally E.

We worked with Damien and his crew from smiths and sons for over 7 months whilst they renovated our home in Stratford. They have done a fantastic job of turning our little cottage into our dream home. We didn't have any renovating experience before starting but these guys thought of everything and made the process much easier than expected. It was great too, to have someone who was very particular and even more critical about the finished product than we were.  All of our ridiculous requests were accommodated and we're so happy with the finished product. We'll definitely be calling on smith and sons for any future projects.  We would absolutely recommend everyone from the smith and sons team.

Clinton S.

My story starts where a lot of others do… below standard tenants and agents with the owner working away equaled a house that had been neglected.. Badly. I did not know where to start. Clearly it needed a major internal makeover and I was fairly demoralized by the whole situation so I called several builders to come and have a look. In hindsight the smartest move I made was calling Damien from Smith and Sons. From the very first meeting and walk through assessing what we could do and what I wanted, I knew Damien was the right choice for the job. Everything fell into place from there on. Damien, Adam and the team were unbelievable. Smart, accommodating, knowledgeable and so approachable. The workmanship was top notch and the communications open, clear and to the point. I really didn’t know what to expect going into this project but what was a pleasant surprise was the ease Damien’s team did it with, the sense of support I got from them and the pride they took on their work through the whole project from planning to handover. I would not hesitate to go directly to Damien the next time I need any sort of building or renovation work. These guys are good.

We would like to thank you for all of your help and expertise in completing our renovation. From the moment we met Damien, until the completion of the job, we have felt comfortable and well looked after.

If we had any questions or issues, they were taken care of almost immediately and personally. The completed renovation exceeded our expectations and we are extremely happy that we chose Smith & Sons to bring our plans to life. Thank you once again.

I want to thank Damien, Adam and the team from Smith and Sons for the fantastic job they did on our bathroom.  It was basically a complete remodel, and we felt completely confident from the beginning that the guys would do a great job.  From Damien's advice in the early concept stages, to Adam's masterful scheduling and management skills during the build, we were completely comfortable with the whole process.  Everyone who worked on the job was polite, courteous and professional, making the whole job as painless as possible.  The results are amazing, and we would absolutely recommend Smith and Sons Cairns South to anyone who asks.

Thanks again!

Mal & Jann Armstrong

"My Husband and I were in need of a renovation and had no idea where to start when a friend gave us Smith & Sons phone number.  We immediately called Damien on a Saturday and saw him that same day.

My Husband and I gave him the brief on our renovation.  Damien took lots of notes and asked lots of question to ensure we were on the same page with the quote back to us before we knew it.  Happy with the detail in the quote we proceeded.

Damien made the project a breeze.  As we are both time poor we left it up to him to get the job done.  He was in constant contact with any issues that arose so that a decision could be made immediately.  His team of sub contractors were brilliant.  

Damien's attention to detail and customer service are second to none.  The job was completed on time and we are extremely happy with the result.   We are so pleased we are about to use Smith & Son for the next stage of our renovation.  Well done to Damien and his team."

Smith & Sons Cairns South have made my first renovation experience easy and trouble free. Their prompt service meant that moving things forward happened quickly and with minimal fuss. Their professionalism was evident immediately with their thorough quote and easy to understand emails and phone calls. Any problems or queries were raised straight away and were solved easily with minimal input required. Working full time, I didn’t have time to manage this renovation myself. Smith & Sons managed everything for me, taking away most of the stress and drama. I highly recommend Smith & Sons for anyone who needs a professional builder to get things done, on time and to standard without supervision.

Jarod and Carolyn Shannon

My partner and I were recommended to contact Smith & Sons to help us with the total renovations of our house and it was the best advice we could have been given. We had the main design changes worked out but Smith & Sons helped refine them, had the drawings done and then quoted on the whole job. We also got other quotes from other builders for the same job and Smith and Sons were the lowest tender.

From beginning to end, the entire staff was wonderful to deal with, always on time, always friendly and helpful and very professional and thorough with their workmanship. As with any renovations we asked for extra things to be done and these variations were charged at a very reasonable rate.

We are thrilled with how it all worked out. We now have a home that we are truly proud of and it is largely due to Smith & Sons. We now regard all those that worked on our renovations as our friends. We have no hesitation in recommending Smith & Sons to anyone wishing to have renovations and/or extensions done regardless the size of the job.

Peter and Vicki

We renovated both of our bathrooms – a task we were not looking forward to.  However Damien inspired confidence in us from the first phone call.  He was friendly, professional, organised and clearly has superior technical knowledge of his work.  We found the same qualities in his entire team. Nothing was too much trouble and all staff were conscientious in ensuring we were satisfied with their work.  Our bathrooms look stunning and we couldn’t be happier.

Sarah Gill

Damien and his team were exceptional from start to finish on our bathroom renovation, far surpassing any previous experiences we have had with tradesmen. For the quote, Damien took the time to discuss what we required and worked through all of the options to reach the best result, even taking the time to explain why some options weren't possible. He inspected the worksite regularly to ensure everything was going to plan, and was always available on-site if required. His team were punctual, hard-working, and polite, and always cleaned up at the end of the day. They were friendly and responsive to any questions or suggestions we had, and were also proactive in making decisions on the go as the works progressed. The quality of the end result is excellent, and we would recommend Damien and his team from Smith & Sons to anyone who wants a superb renovation.

Testimonials from Other Offices

Fiona H.

We initially requested a quote with Smith and Sons after viewing the before and after jobs on their Social Media sites. Neil was very prompt at getting back to us, was honest and realistic about our proposed project. We were impressed with the range of products and timeframe of completion and felt confident in their knowledge and experience with renovations. Neil and his team commenced the project efficiently and promptly and communicated each step very clearly to us, so we felt involved in the whole process. As we needed to move out to complete the renovation, we were eager to ensure the project stuck to the agreed deadline. Neil and his team were very considerate of this and in fact the job was finished before the deadline and we happily moved in before Christmas. The job completed was of a high quality, we were able to pick and choose our range with no complications, Neil and his Team were very easy to speak with and communication was always prompt. We highly recommend Smith and Sons to any future families or couples hoping to undertake a renovation, you can be confident in a great outcome, quality service and professional team.

Emma & Lochie A.

We recently had renovations made to our property to expand our house, remove an old outdoor laundry which was replaced by a second bathroom, office, laundry & a great outdoor living area. We chose Smith & Sons due to the organisation and how simple they made it for us. They listened to what we were looking for, what our budget was and what we were trying to gain from the area and made everything work.

I have recommend the team many times while they were completing our house and will continue to do so, we are so happy with our end result. The guys that work for them and the tradesmen that they get it are professional and communicate with you through the whole process. As we were still onsite through the whole build, I couldn’t fault the team, they always left the site clean and were very respectful. Thank you so much for everything. We are so happy with our new area and it’s made such a difference to our home! Will have you back soon to do more work for us!

Dee & Phil

We'd both like to thank Brett from Smith & Sons Hornsby and all of his crew for the works just completed. We're very happy with the quality of the work. It must be said that Rab, the Tiler, did an outstanding job on the tiles. We have no hesitation in making any recommendations in respect of your company - everyone was friendly & polite in addition to the quality of work.

Gavin Wilson from Smith & Sons Manly was 1 of 3 builders recommended to us. What struck us about Gavin was his honesty, passion and ability to communicate. We felt Gavin was the right person to build our home. From the beginning, and continuing through the whole build, we were very impressed with the quality and finish of the work, his team were particular and they were always friendly. Gavin discussed any issues that arose in a clear fashion and presented options at all times.  We are so happy with the end result, it looks amazing. We would highly recommend Gavin to anyone building their home.

Steve & Leigh Nash

Before our renovation started we were concerned with the timeframe and cleanliness of our bathroom renovation. We were happy with both. All tradies turned up when they were meant to and kept the site extremely clean which was great. Travis was very good at letting us know exactly what was happening so we were never left wondering when the next stage would begin.

We especially love our bath and the tiling. We love the way the bath is free standing but plumbed against the wall. The tiling looks fantastic, we appreciated the feedback on what would look best from our tiler and Beaumont Tiles the supplier.

Travis Vanderwey and his team completed a high-quality job on our renovation. We love our new bathroom and can’t wait to speak to Travis about our next project.

Voni & Jon

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.

Thank you again Vinay.

Greg & Victoria

"When we set out to renovate our home recently we wanted to work with a trustworthy, quality builder to turn our renovation dream into reality.  Mark from Smith and Son Geelong provided all of this and so much more for us.

 We found Mark extremely easy to work with, he was fully across our plans and design from the beginning, and offered us very sound and practical building advice that only comes from many years and lots of experience in the industry.  

Mark fully managed and coordinated our entire renovation, was very well organised, had very regular contact with us throughout the renovation and was extremely easy to communicate with – He took the time to make sure that things were right, and we were happy throughout the entire process.

His quality tradesman ship and attention to detail definitely sets him apart from some others, as he genuinely wanted to deliver us with a renovation of the highest quality, within budget and within a very strict time schedule.

Would we ask Mark to renovate another home for us?  …. Most definitely

Would we recommend Mark to others? ….. Without hesitation

Thanks to Mark of Smith and Son Geelong, our renovation dream has now become reality, and we couldn’t be happier."

To Whom It May Concern,

Peter was our builder for a major renovation job in our recently bought house. We interviewed several builders and chose him as we found him determined, very organised and professional. Throughout the whole renovation process, Peter informed us about any issues at the time and regularly updated us about the progress. He was a phone call away if we needed to talk or ask questions. He tried hard to work around the routine to accommodate our requests. We found him knowledgeable about his field, responsible and always on time. We would like to thank Peter for all his help and highly recommend him to anyone planning a renovation!

I am absolutely delighted to provide a reference for Peter Beeman from Smith & Sons Ryde. His work ethic, attitude, attention to detail was the best I have ever seen.  It is rare in a trades person to exemplify all of these qualities let alone in one still reasonably young.  Nothing was too much trouble for Peter.  Every one of my endless questions was explained in common sense terms so I could understand and I always felt that he treated me with respect.  He is extremely personable and I felt completely comfortable having him in my home.  He is trustworthy, polite and a very decent human being.  Also he is an excellent builder – “I can do anything” he would often say to me and he could! Anyone who is fortunate enough to have Peter Beeman work on their project can rest assured in the knowledge that the job will be completed on time and in a professional manner.

Jess & Daniel

We could not be happier with the job Ben and his team from Smith and Sons Wyong has done for us. We went into the project without any experience or knowledge on renovating so we were extremely nervous about the whole process. Having a newborn and a toddler we had to make sure we picked the right builder who could look after everything and get the job done properly and with as little disruption as possible, we couldn't be happier with our choice.  Ben was there to offer advice and answer all our questions right from the start he came out to our house with Architect Jak who drew our plans and looked after the approval application Ben explained the whole process and put our minds at ease. The renovation exceeded our expectations and has given us a beautiful forever family home. Ben and all the trades he organised were extremely reliable and considerate of noise, mess and safety which was very important for us; our neighbours have even commented that we had the quietest builders ever. Ben has pride in his work and attention to detail he went the extra mile to make sure everything looked amazing and was to a high standard we really felt looked after. We still cannot believe how fast it was completed and how stress free the whole process was. We would not hesitate to recommend Smith and Sons Wyong to anyone who is thinking of building or renovating.

The experience’s we had with Smith & Sons Tweed Heads during renovations to our 22 year Townhouse was one of “life’s learning events”, especially for us in our senior years.
Andrew and Lyn were very patient with us during the decision making for a full Kitchen renovation, En-suite renovation, Bathroom renovation & Laundry renovation   
With Andrew’s experience, the Designs, Hardware fittings, Colour co-ordinations all came together without a problem.
The Smith & Sons workers were very polite and well qualified in their respective trades, which assured quality workmanship.
We have no hesitation in recommending Smith & Sons Tweed Heads for any building and renovation work.

We employed Smith and Sons to fully renovate our house so that we could have extra room for Mum who had come to live with us. We had decided to change the whole layout of the house, adding new bathrooms, walk in robes, an alfresco area, changed the layout of the kitchen, we had new windows and sliding doors put in, in total, it was quite a big job.

Right from the start, from the moment Ilhan came to give us a quote for the renovation we felt very comfortable and gave them the job straight away. Ilhan, Reg and Younis were absolutely fantastic to work with, nothing was too much trouble for them even when we changed our minds throughout the works. Their advice was invaluable. They are very trustworthy and conferred with us throughout the whole project.

We would be very happy to recommend Smith and Sons to anybody contemplating any size renovations and we will use them without hesitation again in the future if required.

I am delighted to be able to say I engaged the services of Gavin Wilson from Smith & Sons Manly as a builder for a major renovation/re build of my premises in Collaroy St Collaroy. Gavin not only exceeded everyone’s expectations with a faultless job that blew everyone’s minds, he saved me thousands by adding his common sense approach to his recommendations. The re build was finished on time with every major step explained and no surprises. A no nonsense builder that exceeds expectations. I have no hesitation in recommending Gavin to anyone considering engaging the services of a builder.

We would like to write a testimonial in regards to our experience while working with Ben Falconer from Smith & Sons Wyong on the renovations of our house. We were very sceptical and unsure before starting this process as it was our first major house renovation. We had ponded over this for years, always putting it off. Shopping down at Westfield Tuggerah we approached and questioned Ben who was there advertising for Smith and Sons renovations and extensions. Ben made us feel comfortable and helped us understand the procedures involved in renovating. We walked away with a clear understanding on how it all worked and a feeling of ease. These were the main reasons specifically for deciding to use Ben and his team. After deciding to go ahead we contacted Ben who then walked us through the procedures step by step. With help from Jak, the Architect, and Ben with cost relating figures we came up with a design that was far and beyond better, then anything we had ever imagined. During the process time of the build I always found Ben to be polite, easy to talk to, always answered my questions directly and acted promptly. His work was always done and finished to its best. He is a man of his word, finishing the job before his estimated time frame, within budget and far better than ever expected. I would strongly recommend Ben and his team to any of my friends, family and would have no hesitation in using Ben again in any future projects.

Vonetta and Tony Jones

Neil Whittred of Smith & Sons recently undertook a major renovation of our Gold Coast apartment.

The renovation incorporated a total refit of the kitchen with all new appliances, cupboards and stone bench tops, two brand new bathrooms, tiling and carpeting the whole of our 16 square apartment, and a totally new paint job.

Neil was extremely professional through the whole process.  His quote was significantly lower than the other quotes due to the economies of scale that Smith & Sons is able to achieve on account of the size of the Australia-wide franchise.

He explained each step of the renovation process so we knew exactly what to expect.  Then he delivered a finished job which, in our opinion, is perfect.

He is also just a heck of a nice guy.  We could not thank and praise him enough.  Also everyone who stays in the apartment is extremely complimentary about the standard of finish and we are generating a far better return than we did before the renovation.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Neil Whittred and his team from Smith and Sons – Gold Coast Central for bringing our renovation ideas to life, we are absolutely thrilled with the finished product! Our home now has more outdoor living space, the area flows better and the construction included the materials we love being timber, sandstone and beautiful greenery, in addition to fitting in with the existing materials. Being our first renovation we had undertaken, we wanted a builder who understood what we wanted to achieve and we feel Neil did this from the outset, his guidance, support and commitment was fantastic, we feel very happy with our newly renovated home and would have no hesitation in recommending Neil at Smith and Sons – Gold Coast Central.

Neil from smith and sons gold coast central has done an amazing job on two bathrooms and separate toilet for my family and me. It was not an easy job by any means as our home is over 35 years old and needed quite a bit of elbow grease to bring it up to scratch. Neil listened and delivered what I wanted in a timely manner.

“Home Renovation”- for the inexperienced, these two words can understandably evoke genuine fear. After a few false starts, we found eventually found Ashley Fraser from Smith & Sons, which would prove to be a masterstroke. After some productive discussions about style, budget and timeframe, we quickly found ourselves in the middle of a well-co-ordinated and high quality kitchen and bathroom makeover. Smith and Sons’ passionate and committed core of electricians, plumbers, painters and carpenters delivered in spades, just as Ashley said they would. Put simply, Smith & Sons ticked all the boxes. The tradesmen were friendly, on time, and adept at their craft. Importantly, they listened, advised and acted on any additions or alterations we called for along the way. All we had to do was sit back, relax, and watch them bring our home back to life. Many people have renovation horror stories to tell- this isn’t one of them. Thanks Ashley! Kate and Tony De Bolfo

Gavin from Smith & Sons Manly has worked with us on four projects to modernize our 70-year-old home. These included: Improving drainage under the house, which created room for a wine cellar; A patio for outdoor entertaining; Guest bathroom and improving the hallway/kitchen design; and Main bathroom. We really like the way Gavin approached the construction methodology and is looking at ways to improve the liveability and usefulness of the space whilst identifying opportunities to reduce capital expenditure. An example was through subtle re-design of the patio that enabled the use of standard trusses and saved the need to excavate then build foundations, saving us tens of thousands of dollars.

We have engaged Tony Lucien from Smith & Sons Maroubra for 2 major renovation projects and in both instances the projects were delivered on time and to exceptionally high standard and quality, with all our needs, concerns and wish lists addressed. We found working with Tony a breeze, his passion for his job and the pride in work is infectious. He has the ability to provide options and explain building requirements with real clarity and with no question too silly attitude which puts you as the client at ease. He was diligent in keeping us across all aspects of the project, always answering our calls and provided regular updates on the progress so we felt very included in the decisions and evolution of our home, even when not on-site. We are soooo happy with our newly renovated home and would gladly recommend Tony for any job – big or small!

We engaged Peter Beeman from Smith & Sons Ryde to renovate our en-suite bathroom two years ago after he was recommended to us by two sets of friends. From the outset Pete’s communication was a standout: he clearly understands that the client has a mix of ideas, some of which will work and some won’t, and that either way the client deserves the respect of being listened to. We had some very specific ideas on innovations we wanted to bring to the bathroom: for some of them Pete showed us clearly and patiently why they worked better on Internet websites than in reality, but most importantly, even for some of the crazy ideas Pete listened and worked with us to find practical solutions. From showers without taps to motion-sensor lighting and invisible drains to a heated towel rail right outside the shower, Pete found a way of making it work AND being within the compliance standards of Australia – he wasn’t budging on compliance and would not accept shortcuts. We had to change suppliers and products where necessary to fit inside Australian laws, but the process came together beautifully and we have an end result that we are extremely pleased with. Pete was onsite most mornings at the crack of dawn, ready for the day’s discussion about progress, tradespeople, innovation, design, materials, options and more – this was a real highlight of working together and gave us a feeling of being part of the final product. It’s now been two years and we haven’t had a single reason to complain, and haven’t had to call Pete back for anything. Would I recommend Pete? Would I use him again? Absolutely – in fact, we already have recommended him to friends down the road (he started a few weeks ago) and he’s going to be doing far more significant renovations for us once our council approvals have come in! I highly recommend Pete’s work, ethics, standards and communications to anyone considering doing building work.

We had our pool /outdoor dining deck made by Smith & Sons Wyong and absolutely love it. It completes our backyard & couldn’t have chosen a better builder to complete the task. A quote was originally given & adhered to, during the quote stage ideas & options were offered to us to get the best out of our backyard & deck. The deck was completed in a timely manner & communication was of an optimum. I would 100% recommend Ben Falconer to any of my friends. Thanks once again for such a great job, always receiving compliments about our deck.

Neil was recommended to us to totally renovate 2 bathrooms. Neil responded to our initial enquiry promptly and enthusiastically. We were very impressed with all his tradesmen who arrived at the times they stated, and always cleaned up at the end of the day. Neil guided us through the selection of products and gave us his constant attention during the job. Thank you Neil for a job well done and we will have no problem recommending you to others.

I was introduced to Warwick from Smith & Sons Castle Hill as a contract builder for a small but complex renovation I did recently. It involved a lot of logistical thought. I found Warwick to be a rare soul: both very skilled and knowledgeable, very quick to creatively solve problems, and also to be excellent in his contract business dealings with me. The final result was excellent. Every small detail considered important. I appreciated his service and highly recommend him to all.

Peter and his team from Smith & Sons Ryde saved my house. After a termite infestation and a dodgy rebuild, Peter came in and was able to identify the problem with the roof rebuild and fix it! Peter and his team are dream builders - dependable, respectful and good communicators! They left the site tidy and are amazingly trustworthy. And best of all Peter is a problem solver - nothing seems to be too hard for him! Best thing I did was to call him! My roof is fixed, my living rooms renovated and looking fabulous - thanks Peter!

I employed Ben Falconer from Smith & Sons Wyong as project manager and as a tradesman in the building of my new home Ben has done earlier work for me which was of a standard someone could only hope for and so I had absolutely no hesitation employing him for a major project. I have a trade background myself (electrical fitter) and am very capable of telling if something is level, square and straight. When people such as gyprockers make positive comments such as “this is the squarest and straight house we’ve ever done," it says it all. Ben’s knowledge of the building industry became obvious when he was required to engage specialist trades people such as concreters, tilers, painters etc. Every single person employed by him produced work to the highest possible standard. As the project proceeded he was able to offer many suggestions that I had not thought of, all of which contributed vastly to improve the final outcome. Finally, and I consider this extremely important, the standard of safety maintained on the site was exceptional. Since 2008 every single person that has entered my house has commented about the quality of our lovely home.

I approached Brett from Smith & Sons Hornsby because I needed a verandah and carport built in keeping with my holiday house in an eco-estate that has strict building guidelines. Brett came out to look at the property, then came back to me with plans on how it would look and gave me pricing, based on progressive stages of completion. I went ahead with the verandah and plan to complete the carport and covered walkway in the near future. They were very easy to work with and I am very happy with the quality of the job. I would highly recommend Smith & Sons Hornsby to anyone needing help turning their ideas into a reality!

Smith & Sons Doncaster renovated our 50 year old home, an original farm house from a medium sized home to a large home with four bedrooms plus study, multiple living areas and a four car garage. The renovation included internal and external works - inclusive of pool and decking areas. The team at Smith & Sons were amazing, reliable and extremely efficient with a good attention to detail. And the project finished ahead of schedule!  We would definitely recommend Matt and his team and renovate with them again!

We asked Warwick from Smith & Sons Castle Hill to complete some internal renovations that included removing a load bearing wall and installing structural steel beams and then creating a kitchen, dining and lounge living space. We chose Warwick over the other quotes because he provided us with advice and solutions above and beyond the scope of works. His quote came in a timely manner and looked to be best value for money. Warwick didn’t disappoint; now having completed the works, we couldn’t recommend Warwick and Smith & Sons Castle Hill enough. The attention to detail and constant communication and advice he provided during the build provided us with the comfort of knowing our home was in good hands. The final result was a space that our family love spending time in and the confidence to say we will be using Warwick in the future for further works.

We are very happy with our renovation completed by Smith & Sons Wyong – thank you for a job well done. The tedious process of demolition and rebuilding was relatively pain free and your good communication with us eased the very few hiccups that occurred along the way. All the tradesmen were excellent - pleasant, courteous, tidy, efficient and good at their job. Post renovations both you and Ben have followed up our queries and ensured we were totally satisfied with the work.

Peter Beeman from Smith & Sons Ryde recently replaced an external timber staircase at our St Ives home. I was impressed with the service provided by Peter from the outset as well as the standard of workmanship upon completion. Peter was immediately responsive to my initial phone query and arrived punctually to provide a competitive quote with breakdown options relating to materials and project scope. Upon engagement he completed the work in record time, was clean and tidy and most importantly polite and courteous to my wife and family. Where a change to scope was noted Peter called me to discuss options and kept me updated on progress throughout. The project was completed to a very high standard. I propose to engage Peter Beeman again for future work and would accordingly endorse him without hesitation as a trustworthy and reliable tradesman who delivers to very high standards.

I would like to write and thank Ben Falconer of Smith & Sons Wyong after engaging him to build / construct a relatives’ accommodation for us. The job was to convert our existing double garage into three rooms (including an en-suite) for our mother /in law to reside in. Ben has shown complete professionalism throughout the entire job phase, firstly at the planning stage right through to completion. Ben on many occasions would go outside normal boundaries to ensure the work was completed both to his high expectations and on time. Whether it was dealing with council issues or supply of goods issues, he was always there to get the job done. The job was completed on time and we are thoroughly happy with the result and all the efforts of Ben and his team. It is without hesitation that we would recommend Ben Falconer and his services.

I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Smith & Sons Ryde to anyone who is planning a large or small renovation. I recently renovated the kitchen, laundry and family room of my 80-year-old home. This work involved demolition of some walls and redesign of the whole area. Peter Beeman, the builder, was professional in every way, easing the inevitable disruptions that such a big renovation involves. He was always completely reliable, punctual and honest. He discussed each step fully and made sure I understood the cost and the nature of the work which would be done. He consulted me in advance at all stages. In an old home, there will always be unexpected issues, but Peter always found solutions. Peter and his team were always very courteous and polite, and went out of their way to assist me. Peter has high standards for himself and expects the same of others who work with him. I am delighted with the renovation and would contact Peter immediately if I ever decide to do another one.

I would like to thank Ben and his team from Smith & Sons Wyong for the wonderful job they did in adding significant value to our investment property at Beachcomber Parade, Toukley. From start to finish we felt like we were the only client you had and didn’t waste time getting to the point which is exactly what we needed to an efficient and extremely impressive build of our granny flat. They removed the stress of the build from us by handling the Council which isn’t something we were looking forward to and made the whole process easy…except for picking the colours for the granny flat which almost resulted in myself or my husband moving into the granny flat!  The finished product is quality from top to bottom. The raised pergola roof adds a whole other room and awesome entertaining area. It’s amazing what they’ve done with such little space. The team were respectful of our tenants in the main house on the block during the build which we really appreciated too. Thankyou sincerely to Ben and the team. We really appreciate everything they have done and are extremely happy with the end product as are the lucky new tenants.

I had hired Mr. Beeman from Smith & Sons Ryde for the renovation of my 3-bedroom unit. Throughout the course of the renovation, Mr. Beeman was a skilled professional. He was accurate in his initial assessment of the scale and cost of the project. He chose and managed the sub-contractors well. The job was done with care and precision. In addition, he is extremely clean and tidy in the workplace. He and his assistant never left the worksite in disarray. They vacuumed routinely in the unit and also the common stairwell. If there were any delays, due to suppliers Mr Beeman was quick to let me know and always had options available - there was always a solution. Although the project took time to complete, due to delays outside of Mr Beeman's control it never detracted from the overall project finish. I am very happy with the outcome.

Peter from Smith & Sons Ryde has just completed his second job for us. He is trustworthy, reliable, has a meticulous eye for detail and sticks to his quote even at detriment to himself. The only variation we have ever had is a 25% variation downwards in our favour. He is also respectful of your property and your privacy and is not intrusive to have around. He is actually a pleasure to have around. In short, he is a rare and lucky find. We will continue to use him in future renovations. I unreservedly recommend Peter and am happy to support this written reference verbally on 0415 802 858. It would be nice to see a builder with integrity prosper and I wish every success to Peter for the future.

We started the process unsure of what we wanted to build. We then met with Ben from Smith & Sons Wyong and immediately knew he was the perfect builder for us. We are a busy family of five who work full time and wanted a home that would provide extra space for us and our growing kids. Ben guided us every step of the way and held my hand throughout the process. Nothing was too small nor too hard. The experience with Ben at Smith and Sons Wyong was a remarkable one. It felt like I was the only home they were renovating. We received lots of personal attention. We now have an absolutely stunning home and had a really great experience doing it along the way, we wouldn’t have that if it wasn’t for Ben at Smith and Sons Wyong. They are truly the best.

My husband and I attended the Newcastle Home Show and came across a stand for Smith & Sons Wyong. We filled out an enquiry form as we were looking to build a covered deck. Ben Falconer contacted us and was one of four people we had come out to give us a quote. Of the four, only two gave written quotes and Ben was one of them. For the same price as two of the estimates for a concrete slab deck, and half the price of the price of the other quote for a wooden deck, we now have a beautiful, covered wooden deck that is so sturdily built we have nicknamed it the bomb shelter. Ben and his team were prompt, professional and most importantly maintained excellent communication throughout the process. We have endured horrendous renovations previously and in sharp contrast to our past experiences it was an absolute pleasure to deal with Smith and Sons from start to finish. We have no hesitation in recommending Smith and Sons for any work you wish done to your property. They are trustworthy, hardworking and give a high quality finished product. We are absolutely thrilled with our covered deck and retaining wall and would look to them for any future projects we undertake.

Pete from Smith & Sons Ryde has expertly assisted us with a number of internal building works and we are soon to engage him to build a timber deck. His training as a carpenter has given him an excellent foundation on which to base his building expertise. He has an eye for detail and prides himself on producing high quality work. Pete is quick to respond to questions and in our experience has kept to agreed time frames.

I contacted Smith & Sons Wyong in 2009 to provide a new Colorbond roof for my house after it was damaged by storm weather. Ben was able to explain to me in a straightforward manner the work that was required and what the end result would look like. The quote was competitive with other builders I had contacted but what really impressed me was the high level of quality finish on the job. Since this time I have used Ben to complete renovations to both my bathroom and kitchen with Ben providing valuable insight into possible layout designs. In both cases Ben seamlessly managed the various trades from glaziers, plumbers and electricians to ensure the job was completed on-time. The work Ben has completed on my house has added value and exceeded my expectations. I recommend Ben Falconer regularly to friends and family who need renovation work completed and will continue to do so in the future.

Michael Sweeny | Architect at MassDesign

I have known Peter from Smith & Sons Ryde for several years and we have worked together. Peter was the site supervisor on a $600,000 renovation in Northbridge, Sydney where I was the Architect. The project was complex in parts comprising a curved roof supported by laminated timber beams and a copper wall cladding system, also several of the window and wall openings were of unusual shapes. Peter managed the high level of co-ordination required for the timber carpentry and all the sub trades which contributed to the successful outcome of the project. I can happily recommend Peter as the main contractor on similar sized projects.
