    "Kane installed a drain for us in our garden. He was prompt, reliable, communicative, and worked efficiently. His work was incredibly neat and precise - at the end of the job, he even smoothed mulch back onto a surface he had dug into. He also proposed a clever approach that minimised the cost of removing soil after it had been dug out. "

    "I can highly recommend Kane following his work to remedy 2 stormwater drains blocked with tree roots. He turned up on time to view property and provided a detailed and reasonable quote. He completed the work efficiently, leaving the site clean and tidy afterwards. His communication throughout the whole process was excellent and he provided 22 images of each stage of the completed work with his final invoice.
    Kane is very professional in his approach, he is obviously very experienced and knows what he is doing. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone else.

    "Due to planned construction work, we approached Kane in the winter of 2021 to install a small Cesspit in the corner of our property. This was preparatory work for subsoil drainage we wanted done during the summer months once the clay soil had had time to dry.

    Using a small 1.8T digger with trenching attachment, Kane excavated 110m of trenching to a depth of 600mm before installing scoria, drain coil subsoil drainage and weedmat before topping with clay spoil.

    In my search for a drainlayer, I found Kaneage Drainage on Google and then on nocowboys.co.nz for fully verified reviews.

    I was really impressed by what all of Kane's prior clients had to say about him.

    Having Kane work on site for a week, I can attest to his skill, professionalism and work ethic. He's a great bloke and is very easy & pleasant to deal with.

    Kane thoroughly deserves the 5 star ratings given to him by myself & others and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing a drainlayer.

    "Excellent and great guy to work with. Replacement/ upgrade of old clay storm water piping to pvc.
    Great communication through out the work, there were some unforeseen issues with existing connections which were easily fixed, Kane informed me of each step so there were know unexpected charges at the end.
    Neat, tidy, quick and he went the extra mile to do a great job.
    Well recommend.

    "We initially hired Kaneage Drainage to complete trench type drainage around our house. We were so impressed with his (Kane- owner operator) work that upon hearing he also did landscaping work, we further employed him to remodel the front yard, installing and establishing a flat lawn and earthworks embankment. Kane is a seasoned pro on the excavator and left the property looking superb and natural looking. We would no hesitate to recomend him, and we will be using him again in the future. All work competed on time and on budget."

    "We contacted Kane to install drainage required to comply with lenders requirements and LIM reports. Kane's quote was competitive and his advice on how the job should be done was excellent. Instead of running pipes under the house a trench was dug and the job was finished very quickly and neatly. Kane provided us with his planned work for Council purposes, gave us a timetable and stuck to it. He was pleasant to deal with and I have no hesitation in recommending Kane to anyone contemplating drainage work."

    "I can't rate Kane highly enough! After previously speaking with a couple of far inferior contractors from other companies to undertake some drainage work, thankfully I found Kane through this website. After explaining the result I wanted, he advised the best and correct course of action to achieve the result, where both other contractors had already advised me of the wrong solution.

    Kane worked very effiiciently, achieving exactly what he said he would, communicating with me throughout the process.

    I would recommend Kane in a heart beat. If I ever need any drainage work to be done again, I will contact him without question.

    Thanks Kane, for a fantastic result!

    "My basement was flooded after heavy rain in March. I checked the comments on nocowboys website and contacted a few drainlayers. Some were busy. Some didn't bother to respond. Some didn't give me a written quote and clear description of work. Kane offered a practicable solution with a reasonable price and detailed quote. I decided to go ahead with Kane. Now the work is done and I'm happy with the result. I would recommend Kane to anyone. He is trustworthy and a pleasure to deal with. "

    "After reading great reviews on the No Cowboys webpage , I decided to invite Kaneage Drainage to quote for some drainage work that was needed.
    The quotation was very competitive and Kane (the owner operator) was a pleasure to deal with.
    We decided to proceed with the quotation, the work has now been completed and we are very pleased with the outcome.
    All in all, the process from start to finish was a very smooth affair and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the services of Kaneage Drainage to others. AAAA+

    "We initially contacted Kane after reading through his reviews on No Cowboys and from the get go he was very prompt with communication and visiting us to quote the job. He talked through solutions for our drainage which included future proofing for potential renovation work. Whilst we couldn\'t get the job done straight away as was bigger than we initially thought, he was very patient until we were ready to go. Was on time for the job and worked solidly through to completion. I felt very comfortable having him at our property even when we weren\'t home. He also detected a leak while he was at our place and fixed that for us while he was there. That meant my high water bill I got the following week wasn\'t as much of a shock!. Will be recommending Kane to friends and family and would not hesitate to use him again should the need ever arise. Thanks Kane."

    "We knew we needed drainage work performed due to a very boggy paddock but were unsure of what was required. We were reluctant to just give Kane the job from the get go as we have a personal connection to the family. But when it came to inspecting the site and preparing a quote he was thorough, very professional and easy to understand. From start to finish all ran smoothly within cost and time quoted. We ended up extending the job to further earthworks and landscaping design, hence to say we were happy with his work. We have no hesitation in recomending Kane (Kainage Drainage) as a can-do, will-do professional who charges fairly and works hard."

    "We have hired Kane to do the drainage on our place on two seperate occassions, and both times he has done a fantastic job!. When Kane came to look at the job he was extremely helpful in giving us advice on what needed to be done to fix the problems and did not try to convience us to do more than what was needed. The correspondance with himself and his business partner Dana was excellent. We received the quote within a week or two and within days of this we had a start date booked in that suited my financial situation. The quote was well priced and there was no unexpected over runs. On job two, where a extra bit of timber was needed, Kane did the shopping around for the best price and was sure to communicate with me first before purchasing. Kane always came across very professional and friendly and I would highly recommend Kaneage drainage to anyone. Myself and my husband have been so happy with his work that we have already discussed hiring him again for some basic landscaping preparation."

    "My name is Andrew Coombes - I am the General Manager of Scot Thrust Limited - Civil Construction company est. 1988

    Kane contracted to Scot Thrust to undertake pilot trenching to expose existing key utility assets for major Vector Substation upgrade.

    At my house Kane plumbed in my new pergola, replaced under the house all the old 80mm SW with 100mm and is currently excavating large grassed areas installing the appropriate drainage/link ins - placing 100mm of GAP40 with 100mm of crushed shell along with bracing/bracketing a kitchen bench to our sleep-out for cleaning fish.

    Commercially and personally I thoroughly recommend Kane for any drainage/civil earthwork work and for that matter any other job around your house that you never seem to get around to doing.

    By all means call me on 021 484 404 for further reference.

    "Kane came through on everything he said he would deliver and more. He was on time, professional and worked hard every minute of the day (couldn\'t even get him to stop for lunch!). He went further than necessary evening out the surface afterwards and made it look fantastic. He loked at our plans and together with the plumber figured out ways to save us money in future work, outstanding. We have had some really disappointing experiences with some tradespeople over the past few months and its fair to say he restored out faith! Would recommend to anyone, pleasure to work with."
