What People Are Saying

My husband and I decided it was time for the renovation of our fifteen year old villa at Mermaid Beach. Having had little experience in renovating our question was "where do we start?" I had a good idea of what I wanted in a renovation and could visualise the end result however we had neither the time nor the knowledge to do it ourselves so I started by making an appointment with Neil, owner of Smith & Sons Gold Coast Central.

Following a multitude of questions and ultimately satisfied by the answers we were given including "what about the cat?" we embarked on the renovation of the bathroom, powder room, ensuite, laundry, study and tiling throughout the ground floor. We lived in dust and dirt and tradesmen coming and going for six weeks and many times we questioned why we were putting ourselves through this however the end result was a beautiful renovation which was made possible by Neil and his crew.

We would not hesitate to recommend Smith & Sons Gold Coast Central to anyone wanting to renovate their home.

Our house in the Gold Coast was flooded in early December.  After 3 very frustrating months trying to get contractors to give us quotes, deal with insurance and get repairs under way with no success, a friend gave us Smith & Sons Gold Coast Central’s number.  Everything changed that day!  Neil called us back straight away, and quotes were done promptly and accurately. He liaised with the insurance assessor, organized all the work to be carried out with better rates than any of the other quotes we had received and he was always available to take our calls and replied to texts and emails pretty much immediately. All of this was done while we were living in a very remote community in Cape York, so Neil was also incredibly patient with all our questions and requests for pictures and he suggested changes to our original plans that worked out splendidly.

All the work is now finished, and we are extremely happy with the results.  The house looks much better than we dared to imagine it would and it was all done within the original budget. We are very grateful to Neil and his team!

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.
