    "I would like to thank Kevin and his boys Rob and Liam for the wonderful work they did with removing my chimney down to floor level. They were professional, friendly and went out of their way to do more than was asked of them. They not only replaced the weather boards where the chimney was, but also covered where a previous window had been as well to make sure the weather boards went all the way across. I was kept informed all the way about the changes that needed to be done for a better outcome. Thank you especially to Rob and Liam who kept at the job until it was completed despite being called inside to have something to eat and drink. Kei te mihi nunui ki a koutou mo to mahi pai rawe atu. Nga mihi Pat & Dan"

    "Kevin's team were a pleasure to deal with , answered any questions relating to the work, and were over all very helpful. They made sure there was minimum amount of mess and dust kept out of house. The Chimney was brought down quickly and the remains removed from Site. Since I said I would do the patching of the hole in the wall where the Chimney was, they also gave some good advise on doing the job correctly. They did patch the hole in the roof and you would never know there was a chimney there in the first place. Highly recommend the company / Services, prices for doing the job very reasonable.."

    "Kevin and his team did a great job. I only needed my chimney removed to the roofline - the chimney breast is on the outside of the house and there weren't any benefits to removing it completely.

    I have a 60's weatherboard house and it took some time to find the replacement roof tiles because they're no longer manufactured. Kevin did the work to find the roof tiles that were closest to my own, and provided regular status updates. Once the tiles were ready, it only took a day to remove the chimney and repair the roof.

    I'm having my entire roof painted so it doesn't matter if the tiles aren't exactly colour matched but it's close enough that they don't stand out unless you're looking for them!

    They kept the job site tidy and took away all the rubbish at the end of the day. I have recommended them to my friends.

    "Kevin inspected the proposed job of removal of a brick chimney shared by two units which was a potential earthquake hazard. He suggested taking it down to just above roof level and capping it. The result is a neat finish, much improved safety with a big saving in cost compared with complete removal to roof level requiring additional tiles to match. I appreciate that Kevin's foreman and crew were very helpful and patient with questions and requests while on the job and I am happy to recommend Kevin Giles Building Ltd to anyone looking at lowering a chimney for safety reasons."

    "Kev and his team were a pleasure to to work with, from start to finish. Great workmanship and friendly communication, with a willingness to adapt and meet our needs regarding time frame and job details. All finished, our chimney has been removed and the replacement wall looks great! Fantastic job integrating the weatherboard and matching the paint. The levelling up down the bottom and new cement etc also really good. We're very happy. A big thank you to Kev for the way he put it all together and his general building know-how re options for further works, and a big thank you to Rob and Mike and the team for working so well and being so easy to have around. We will definitely be in touch again when we start our renovations!"

    "Kevin and his team did a great job of removing our chimney promptly and professionally after the Kaikoura earthquake in December. He made taking it down a priority (it was in danger of falling down in the aftershocks) which was a comfort, especially as there were a lot of other people needing the same service. The communication was clear and his honesty appreciated; another company gave us a comparatively exorbitant quote. A hassle-free experience."

    "Following the Kaikoura earthquake we were keen to have our two chimneys removed down below the roofline. Kevin was quick to respond to my email and came around to quote for the work.
    When the work was undertaken the scaffolding was assembled on a Thursday but a rain deluge meant the chimneys couldn't be removed that day. The following day Kevin and his team returned and completed the work and arranged for the skip bin to be removed the following day. We were amazed at how quickly the work was undertaken and that all the rubbish was removed from the house - there was no sign that they had been there.

    We were very impressed with the quality of the work and the manner in which the crew conducted themselves.

    "A very professional job, demolishing two chimney stacks down to the roofline. Despite an awkward access - Kev's team sorted it out within a day and moved 3 tonnes of rubble to the tip.

    Kev is a perfectionist whose positive leadership of his team means I will definitely be using his building services again with kitchen renovations and extensions.

    Cheers

    "We had concerns about our chimney which were completely put to rest by Kevin. His professionalism and customer service is fantastic. The work could not be done at the time originally specified yet this was never an issue as Kevin kept in constant contact to let us know progress. When the work was schedule it was incredibly efficient despite the scaffolding requirements. I had a couple of other issues that I wanted Kevin to address and this was done so quickly and with no hassle. Would recommend highly"

    "Kevin was good to deal with and communicated well. Very pleased with the results and the reasonable costs (particularly when compared to the other quote I had got). I had been dreading the potential mess, but the two chimneys were removed very quickly and cleanly, with good organisation of the other trades needed to complete the job. All rubbish was removed and there was little evidence remaining of what could have been a very messy job."

    "Kev is straightforward, honest and finishes work to a high standard, following through on any of the inevitable extra work you find when dealing with a 100 year old house ( in a professional rather than pushy way).

    Recently he removed three chimneys at our house and highlighted to us that our roof may be an earthquake risk and one of our chimneys was a fire risk. These are good things to know! As a result of this we used an engineer to provide us with a solution, which Kevin then built for us.

    The quality of his work was great, everything was cleaned up well and his team were a lovely group of guys who I didn't mind our kids being around. At all times, our property and the people who live in it were treated respectfully.

    In addition to the scope of his work he also told us that there were old asbestos pipes in our roof. We were very grateful for this as we were about to have a roof ventilation system installed by another provider and they had no intention of removing them until I asked them to.

    In short Kev is reliable, trustworthy and honest. He doesn't look to cut corners and is really experienced at dealing with old houses and their unique challenges. He has a great team of people around him who he treats well, and this flows on into your job being done both efficiently and properly. Highly recommended.

    "Kevin's quote for the removal of our chimney above roof level was half the amount of the second quote.
    He kept us well informed about when the work would be done and it was done quickly and well. What impressed me most was that the rubble had to be taken out through the house and up steps to the car port yet the team left no mess what-so-ever. To me, that indicates the level of care the team takes with its work.
    We are very happy with the job and would recommend Kevin and his team to anyone.

    "I got Kevs details from a friend where Kev had previously done some building work. His name came with a glowing reference. From the moment I contacted Kev he met every timeframe re coming to quote to send me the pricing. His level of workmanship was of a very high standard. He kept me up to date with his progress. He and his team respected our home to the end degree.
    I would have no hesitation in recommending Kev to anyone wanting chimneys removed or any General building work. He is already quoting on the next building project at our home.

    "I contacted Kev over the xmas holidays for an urgent door install (my doors arrived late so I lost my builder).
    He was able to get Mike to me within 48 hours even though it was the holiday period. The doors were installed well, and he was happy for us to stay at the house while he worked. Very trustworthy, lovely chap. Highly recommend.
    A little pricey, but it was the xmas period so that's to be expected.

    "Quick quote, great communication, flexible approach and a pragmatic handling of variations. Kevs team took down my chimney in an awkward location at the side of my house on a sloping section, replaced rotten piles and weatherboards, arranged for the replacement of an aging sewer line and built a small retaining wall for me. Due to the age of my property there were a fair few discoveries and problems to tackle along the way. These were well dealt with as the issues arose and they were also very accommodating in leaving up scaffolding to allow me to paint the new panels and boards. Site was left nice and clean on completion. I'd definitely recommend them and use them again."
