    "Walmsley Builders refloored a large section of the wharenui of our marae that was damaged. They did a professional job exactly what they had quoted for at a great price. Their subcontractors have also done work such as painting and that was done to a very high standard.

    I have personally known Henare and his family including his sons for 9 years and know them to be men of integrity. He does a job and does it well whatever that job may be. Whoever has them working for them is lucky to have them.

    I have also had other professional dealings with Henare in my work where he has volunteered his time. It was disappointing to read the negative feedback as I know that is not their doing, some people have very unrealistic ideas that if they cut corners, they can then get a quality job. It makes you wonder why they didn\'t just do a complete DIY as it seems they had no faith in the professionals and in the end they got what they did because they didn\'t let the professionals do the job for them.

    God bless you all in your work.

    "Walmsley Builders carried out an addition on our bach at Otaki Beach earlier this year. We found their service was excellent! great value for money and could not have been more helpful. They even cleaned up the site before they left. I would recommend them to anyone looking for the best builders in the Wellington area."

    "The job was quoted for 3 weeks and took 8 months, including 3 months where we were left with no kitchen, no living room, no bathroom and only one outside tap working, and we lived onsite.

    Communication and project management was very poor. We had to fight to get the job finished to spec and no more. The fact it was a renovation was blamed for everything.

    The finish was poor everywhere, including a non level floor, non-level sink (which we already had to fight to have recentred on the taps), 10mm gap between jib sheets behind the toilet and the list goes on.

    If you have a new contruction, maybe they're the ones, but if you want your pride and joy renovated, stay away from them. The price was decent, but not for the quality of the work and the hardship.

    Bruce Walmsley responded:
    "With all due respect to the client this was an extremely difficult project with the key issues listed below: -The project had a very limited budget for the scope of works. The client was advised of these limitations prior to the start of the project - The original house was in extremely poor condition with most walls out of plumb and floors not level. Additional work to correct this would have required a variation on an already limited budget. - The clients (and their dog) occupied the building while under construction. This made it very difficult to programme the works. The contractor made their best attempt to keep services running while under these conditions - The original time frame ‘to build’ was approximately 3 months. There were four weeks to draw the plans, 6 weeks for council approvals and further 4 months to practical completion and then issue Code of Compliance. Client variations contributed mainly to time extensions. - Adding to the difficulties; the client wanted to recycle old equipment and materials; there were substandard items purchased off Trade-me by the client; and there were time restraints from client nominated subcontractors - The client had decided to do their own painting and decorating. The finish was a reflection of their work In conclusion customer satisfaction has always been a key to the successful operation of this company. Considering the limitations of this project, we strongly feel that the client received value for money. The finished product was a reflection of the client’s budget and circumstances. "
