    "Karl and Lisa demolished the old sleepout at our bach and built a new one - which was a nearly $200,000 job. They started when they said, got it the job finished before Christmas as promised, and were really good at communicating. They gave us a comprehensive quote, and stuck to it exactly. They worked hard, and were always friendly, cheerful and positive - lovely people to have around as well as doing excellent work.
    I was prepared for anxiety and tension around this project, but Karl and Lisa made it remarkably stress-free I recommend Built to Last without reservation - thanks for great work!

    "Karl and Lisa built fences and gates for my new home to secure my little dogs in the garden. They did a very professional job, were a delight to deal with, nothing was too much trouble. They even came to finish the job on a public holiday (Anzac day). Very impressed with their work ethic and would throughly recommend them for all the building jobs you want done properly. They really do make things "built to last". A+ service. Thank you Lisa and Karl for being such an awesome team and I am very grateful that I found you on this website. You are a winning combination."

    "Karl and Lisa did a fantastic job on my renovation/custom built storage cupboard. Totally professional in their conduct and execution of finished product. They took out a wardrobe, dismantled a wall, renewed ceiling, replaced rotten manhole frame and custom built an amazing storage cupboard.
    Karl and Lisa were fast, efficient, agreeable and helpful with suggestions and solutions. They included me every step of the way and had great communication.

    Thank you Built to last Builders! 100% Recommend! Ellen"

    "We had our kitchen completely renewed and can only say that we were more than happy with the way Karl & Lisa executed the work in a timely and efficient manner. Nothing was too much trouble and the completion was on time and the house left in a spick & span condition.
    Would highly recommend and will get any future work done by this great company.

    "We had the best experience with Karl and Lisa. We have used them numerous times throughout our renovation because we know they will do a fantastic job, get it done quickly, nothing is too much hassle and their quotes are very reasonable. They have built and installed a bath cradle for us. Replaced a large section of rotten flooring in our laundry. Pulled out all the old kitchen cabinetry and replaced with new. Installed the new benchtop (which was no mean feat as it had to be scribed to our 1940's very crooked walls!) Installed the range hood (which was also a bit of a tricky one as the stud was too high - Karl sorted it) and most recently took out an old ranch slider and replaced it with french doors. It is so nice to have builders you can rely on and we highly recommend them."

    "Karl and Lisa did a fantastic job, building us two decks, removing an old conservatory and internal wall, and extending our living room into the space this created. Their quote was very reasonable, and when one piece of the work turned out to have less required than they'd originally thought, they took the relevant amount off the final bill.

    They worked incredibly hard, and nothing was a problem. The brief started out being the internal renos and one deck - two weeks before Christmas, knowing that we were thinking of eventually adding a second deck, they told us they were ahead of schedule, and had time for the second deck if we wanted to go ahead with it now. We did, and they still finished with a couple of days to spare. The work looks amazing, it's all done to a really great standard. Karl and Lisa are incredibly hard workers, friendly, helpful, and even cheerfully worked alongside the four-year-old and puppy "helpers". Thanks so much for everything guys - you made what could have been an incredibly stressful time a lot less painful! We'll definitely be calling on you again when we've saved up for the next stage! (Said four-year-old is already heartbroken that you won't be back after Christmas!)"

    "We are happy to recommend Carl and Lisa very highly. They have recently converted a garage of ours into living accommodation plus bathroom. They are skilled and hard-working and have done an excellent job. At all times they were friendly, helpful, and easy to talk to. They not only did their own work, but organised other tradesmen needed on this job, e.g. the electrician and the plumber. And they also did a number of small jobs for us without any extra charge."

    "Karl did a fabulous job installing replacement rimu floorboards in our kitchen and a new bath in our bathroom. When removing our old bath and wall tiles, he discovered we had had water leaking into the walls. He was quick to remove the rotted timber and re-line the walls for us before installing the new bath liner and bath. Lisa and Karl and both great to deal with. Definitely recommend!"

    "Karl and Lisa are great. They responded promptly to our enquiry, turned up when they said they would and quickly understood what was needed to replace/effect repairs to old weatherboards on our 1920s cottage. They scheduled the work realistically and, again, kept to promised dates. They\'re really good people to deal with and we\'re looking forward to calling on them again as the house renovation progresses. Thanks to you both. "

    "Karl and Lisa recently built a lovely kwila deck for us. They did a fantastic job from start to finish. The price was very reasonable, the quality of the work fantastic and it was completed promptly. The design and details of the deck evolved and changed slightly as the job progressed and Karl was flexible and accommodating at all times, nothing was an issue or too much to do. We are very happy with the end result and how good it was to deal with Karl, would definitely use again and recommend him."

    "I had a barn-sized garage buit by \"The King\" and Lisa. They did a great job in a very resonable time .
    Later I had Karl back to add an extension to it, then install a side door. All done professionally and quickly. Highly recommended.

    "We\'d been left in a bit of a pickle thanks to poor previous building and plumbing work and needed someone who knew what they were doing. We received a flyer from Karl and Lisa in our mailbox and took a bit of a punt, we are very glad we did!

    The service is really friendly and patient even towards people like us, who struggle to use the right building terminology.

    So far they have renovated a bathroom, repaired a rotting exterior board and replaced parts of an interior window frame. The attention to detail is really good. Karl and Lisa prime the wood for painting,and the finish, which can include some plastering as well as construction, is to a high standard. They are also tidy workers. We definitely recommend them and will make use of their services again. Mark and Janene"

    "We moved to the Kapiti 10 years ago, and after a nightmare start with another local company were lucky enough to find Karl. Since then, they have helped us with all of our building and renovation projects.

    After the enormous stresses and strains that we have had with previous builders work and egos and attitudes, we find Karl and his team to be a breath of fresh air.

    A very likable, can do, no nonsence guy. Quality wormanship, reliable, fast and reasonably priced.

    I simply can\'t reccomend him enough. PS. The bathroom looks absolutely fab... thanks for all your hard work (and patience) haha"
