Working with John Kettle for over 5 years, we have always been extremely pleased with the results, as have our customers.

Recent sites offered strong challenges with respect to tight deadlines & John Kettle’s contributions have been complex and whilst delivered under difficult circumstances, have always exceeded our expectations. His knowledge and professional installation is above industry standards in my opinion.

John was also very helpful in suggesting alternatives which allowed us to reduce our costs without sacrificing the quality of the job.

I would have no hesitation in recommending John Kettle to any organization seeking a reliable, high quality build

John Kettle designed and built a Pergola and Verandah for our new home in 2012, together with a rear yard fence in merbau. His designs were appealing to the eye and his thoroughness ensured prompt Approval by the local Council.  

His Quote was fair and explained carefully to avoid any confusion.

The construction of the Pergola commenced during adverse weather conditions and the foundations had to be completed in thick mud and stormwater. John was not fazed by these conditions and completed the structure within the quoted timeframe.

All materials used were of a high quality and the site was cleaned of excess materials and waste at the completion of the work.

Any additional work completed by his recommended tradespeople (plumbers & bricklayers) was monitored closely by John to ensure that it was carried out to his satisfaction.

My wife and I were extremely happy with the completed structures and we would have no hesitation in recommending John for either internal or external building work

From our initial meeting my wife & I felt really comfortable and confident with John and the crew's ability to deliver the project on time and within a budget.

John was more than willing to assist with our design plans and make his own suggestions to improve aspects. 

John made the experience stress free, smooth and enjoyable & I wouldn't hesitate to use his services agin or recommend them.

Over the past ten years it has been necessary for me to employ builders on two occasions; initially for a major renovation to my California Bungalow and more recently for some reparatory structural work at the same address.

Both times, it was my good fortune to employ John Kettle. John was always punctual and delivered the inside job on schedule to the highest standard. He offered advice on how to improve on what was planned and when this was implemented, it proved to be far better outcome for my home.

I have no hesitation in recommending John's building expertise to anyone who requires a first rate result, delivered with a great attitude and on budget.

Yours sincerely,

John Kettle has recently completed three separate small renovations at my home. He installed two windows and replaced the front verandah decking.

Most recently, he replaced the sub floor and laid a new floor in the back kitchen/living area. He explained the complexities of the last job clearly and was able to alter his plans as unexpected issues arose.  He left the area safe at the end of each day as we were still living in the house. 

All three tasks were completed within a reasonable time and at an affordable cost.

His team were friendly and courteous and a pleasure to have around. They always left their equipment tidy at the end of the day and cleaned up at the end of the job. I look forward to having John assist me with more work around my 100 year old home.

Yours sincerely,
