    "Kev and his team were a joy to work with. Even though they were incredibly busy and our job was not urgent, Kev was brilliant at informing us when our job was to be scheduled. The demolition of the top part of our chimney and the installation of a stainless steel flue was undertaking quickly and professionally. No hesitation in recommending them."

    "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

    Rob"

    "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."
