    "Rob and his team are absolutely amazing. We've had them repile our house and rebuild a retaining wall. Their communication was excellent. We were kept up-to-date with what was happening at every stage. We can't fault their quality of work. The work was completed within the expected timeframe. When they had finished our place was left in the same condition as when they started. Rob took the time to meet with us on the weekend to discuss progress and give advice on other issues around our old house. We will definitely be getting Rob back to do further work for us."

    "The people at A-grade building and repiling are professional. I had 2 houses completely repiled and leveled, stormwater drainage sorted out, and new decks built. The contracted work was done to a uniformly high standard, on time, in the time span predicted, and when they finished, everything was left tidy. Communication was excellent and I never had to worry about surprise extra costs - there were none. I am a happy customer."

    "I would happily recommend Robert, Ray and their team at A Grade Building & Repiling. We contacted them on an urgent basis in April 2016 after our builder informed us that the southwest corner of our house had sunk approximately 90mm. This news came to us two weeks into a financed and consented exterior renovation, which included replacing our cladding, doors and windows. Our builder explained that if we didn't relevel the house before the new cladding (uPVC weather boards) was installed, the cladding would end up at an odd angle, and, furthermore, we would risk damaging our new windows and doors if the house was releveled after they were installed. In short, we had no option but to precede urgently with releveling. We sought the advice of two repiling companies. The first company proposed a less comprehensive and less costly solution but wanted to tear out our floors and refused to give a warranty on their work. When I explained that I also wanted to make sure our Council approved their work, I was told, "good luck with that". A Grade offered us a very different and very comprehensive (wholistic) solution, which included fully repiling our house and underpinning our partial ring foundation to a depth of over 2m. Robert also explained that the most likely cause of our house continuing to slip (it was repiled in 2012 by a prior owner) was poor drainage and gave us excellent suggestions on what we would need to do to resolve the drainage issues - all of which were later confirmed by our plumber/drain layer. Robert was always very upfront about the cost. He warrants his work, and doesn't want to redo work he's already done, so he isn't going to offer a cheap solution that he knows won't survive the warranty period. Furthermore, Robert understood that it was important to us to get Council approval and offered to simplify the process by coordinating the architect and engineer. He also responded directly to Council (KCDC) inquiries as necessary, and we ultimately received a Certificate of Acceptance for the work. In addition to providing quality foundation work, offering quality drainage advice, and helping to obtain Council approval, A Grade also added value (at no additional cost to us) by: protecting my plants by digging them out and moving them away from the work site; patching a water leak from a pipe I had asked our plumber to disconnect, and which I assured A Grade's team had been disconnected, but, in fact, wasn't; adjusting one of our gutters (moved the dropper) to help improve drainage; and building a special shovel over 2m long to hand dig the holes for underpinning around our house when they discovered that the auger was not suitable with our sandy soil."

    "Rob responded quickly to my SOS ( house held up by match sticks) and his team subsequently put in 18 new piles and several new bracing timbers. Rob was very patient with me, answered all my questions re cost time depth of piles etc. His team, lead by Ray worked quickly, pretty much no disruption to the household and the work was done in a week. Very pleased with the work and my house feels way better :-) Would definitely recommend. Thanks Rob and team"

    "Based on two excellent jobs that Rob has done for us, we asked him to remedy a problem with a collapsed soffit. He organised the job, and kept us updated when the scaffolding would be erected. The next morning he came on site, quickly remedied the problem and immediately let us know it was all sorted. We wish all tradesmen were as good as him."

    "Rob had previously done a full re-roof which we have already commented on - an excellent job. Based on this we got him to replace an external wooden staircase. As with the previous job he did for us his service was of the highest standard, his workmanship was top quality, and it was a real pleasure to deal with him."

    "Rob undertook foundation repair on my house and was professional throughout including dealing nicely with my tenants. The 1950s house on peat was subsiding badly at one end due to its original piles not reaching solid ground that he found to be about 2 metres down, and to chronic stormwater drain leaks. Rob recommended underpinning in 4 or so places under the concrete perimeter so it would get support from solid ground (and I believe if my eyes observe right he built the concrete perimeter up a bit at the bad end while the house was jacked up a little), and replaced or repaired several piles that had either moved or been badly installed creating slumps or waves in the floor. He also sorted out doors that had been previously altered to fit with warping frames at no extra charge. The job was completed in a few days and it has taken the house from having a falling down decrepit feel to now feeling like its construction is good quality - amazing the emotional boost a flat floor gives atop the resale and capital gain side of it. Rob came in with the final bill exactly as quoted at approx $16,000. I had got a couple of other quotes but the people lacked Robs qualifications and seemed gung ho or clueless while Rob could explain the problem and best solution. I'm not sure of the exact locations of the underpinning as I was not present during the work to have them pointed out, and remain curious about this... but the result is beyond expectations - Rob didn't just improve the situation, he fixed it by being exacting and you would not know any problem existed, I fully recommend Robs business for any piles job that is a bit tricky - he knows his stuff and has a can do attitude"

    "Repiled a small older house for us. Rob warned us about the worst-case scenario for a house interior during repiling, but the results were the best (no internal damage/changes at all). Our only issue with the repiling was that the work was delayed for a month past the scheduled start date due to poor weather impacting other jobs. Cheerful and good communication overall - we found him excellent via email, not so good about answering the phone. When it came to work that wasn't the repiling, it didn't go as smoothly. We received a detailed estimate for repiling but only a verbal estimate for other building work we specifically asked about. Unfortunately, other workers subcontracting to Rob weren't as reliably good - a plumber who charged us $350 for a simple sink mixer, an electrician never showed up, etc. So I recommend A Grade Building & Repiling specifically for repiling and building."
    Robert responded:
    "I need to respond here as there are issues that do need clarification. It is company policy during working hours to leave cell phones in truck if we are working on a roof for obvious safety reasons. Kitchen mixer costs that much when the durability factor comes to play. A certified builder must afford a ten warranty on all workmanship and materials. Cheap kitchen mixers just don't make the grade. My electricians father in law passed away the night before and did not answer phone for a week. This was mentioned to client but perhaps it being more than a year ago work was completed, must have been forgotten. "

    "These guys are total professionals. Rob directed the work on site and Ray managed the site day to day. They re-piled, re-clad and re-painted our home on a steep site in Eastbourne. The quality of work was exceptional, they work incredibly hard and were a pleasure to deal with. They left the site clean each night and had a strong focus on safety. We'd strongly recommend them and hope to engage them for work again in the future. Our neighbours also spoke of how polite and friendly they were. And just a point to note...don't be concerned about any absence of communication while you're waiting for a job to start. They're totally on to it and communicate really well just before the job begins right through until its completed. They're just busy (no doubt because they're so good!)."

    "This is the first house I have bought in New Zealand and therefore the first tradesmen I have used and I firmly believe you get what you pay for! in a good way....I did quite a bit of research online before employing Robert and used this site, reading previous feedback and comments, before making my decision. I did get three quotes for the work, which was the complete replacement of the piles on the house, and whilst Robert\'s was the most expensive, like I said before, I am a firm believer of you have to pay for quality workmanship. The overall communication and professionalism afforded to me by Robert, and all of his team, were nothing but 100% all the way through. Whilst everything did not go to plan, because of the weather and unforeseen problems (i.e. repiling in bone dry sand is not easy) Robert explained everything to me and we agreed on the best ways forward and the job got done. The price quoted was the price I paid, plus a few agreed extras, which I was happy to pay for. Robert provided me with a few tips of the trade and pointers for the future and will definitely use Robert and his team again when my next project comes up. If you need a job doing and only want to pay for the job doing once then I would strongly suggest contacting A Grade Building, speak to Robert, and you’ll get the job done properly!"

He was upfront about anything he discovered and was open to giving me advice about some other things around the house. They turned up when they said they would and got the job finished quickly. I\'ll be using them again. I should have used Rob to do our pre-purchase inspection!!"

    "The quality of work done on our difficult repiling job was brilliant by any standards. The team cut through a foot thick concrete wall and trenched underneath our 80 year old house to replace the almost completely rotten original piles. They worked within very limited space and in horrible weather conditions, digging out hard clay and eventually rock. Robert is a very good communicator, friendly and professional, and kept me informed of progress all the way. The completed job is excellent by our standards, and has also been given the big tick by my father-in-law who is also a builder. The house feels so different to live in day to day, and this important job is the start of a long list of renovations. We will definitely be calling on Robert for our renovation plans as well."

    "A reasonably large job was undertaken with some technical challenges but they didnt pose any problems for Rob and team. There was a variety of work to do so also included A Grade undertaking a project management and planning role coordinating with other contractors and purchase/delivery of materials as and when required. This was done well, especially too given the middle of winter with variable weather. Though the work was happening right outside our door, A Grade got on and did it with the least amount of interruption and inconvenience to ourselves. The final costs were pretty much as estimated. They will be the first point of call again for further work."

    "Robert has provided us with two FAST, efficient building inspections. The first was a really thorough look and rough price on an advertised dated property. This house needed more work than we had anticipated, and Robert was able to give us a rough guide as to the amount we would be looking at to get it up to scratch. He arrived on the day we rang him and had the report to us within two hours of seeing the property, as tender was due in days. With his information on hand we realised this house almost needed to be rebuilt from the ground up - NOT what was being offered! Without his friendly up front info we could have been up for a nasty shock! The second inspection was again conducted on the day I called him and the report was in that night - couldnt ask for better service! We really hope that soon well have a house, and well be ringing Robert should anything need doing!! Thanks again Robert!!"

    "Agree totally with other comment posted. Rob replaced a roof and added a set of outside stairs on time, on budget and guaranteed his work for a decade. Not hard to see why hes so busy. An easy, straight up guy to deal with; no hesitation in giving his honest opinion, even when it means less work for him. Doesnt subcontract out to others - youre talking to the guy getting his hands dirty; no chance of miscommunication or cutting corners. Rob had the best long term solutions for problems encountered during the job and still beat the nearest competing quote. You will struggle to find a better builder.

    "We were impressed with Roberts professionalism, honesty and the many $1000s he saved us.. He called as arranged to a rental property of ours to give a price for repiling and bathroom repairs (identified as urgent by a professional pre-sale house inspection company). Roberts inspection revealed that the piles were safe and the bathroom walls did not need replacing (they needed the mould removed and a repaint and better ventilation). His honesty meant he did himself out of a job and he declined an offer from us to pay him for the time he took to do the inspection. We highly commend his honesty."

    "I used Robert for 2 property inspections. The first one had a lot of problems that he pointed out and I decided to pass. The second one was in great condition and I ended up buying it. Both times I used his report to make the decision and come up with a price. Roberts report are not as detailed as another firm I used in the past (no photos and no descriptions of light fixtures etc...). Instead you get a concise bullet point report that insist on the problems if there are any, and give a very good overall picture of the health of the property. Robert was great to deal with and he typed up and emailed the report within hours when I was in a rush to get it. Great service."

    "Excellent Job, Thanks Rob & Team. This was a new Garage Build of 80 square metres, included demolition of old garage, some fencing, concrete foundations and erecting all the walls, doors and windows, and exterior corrugate steel cladding and roofing, (with no water leaks). Rob allowed me to deal direct with other Vendors and pay them independantly *(eg. plumber, electrician, & other material suppliers) >which is a cost saving to me). Quoting for the job was a bit vague, and Invoicing was prompt but lacked the detail i expected (ie. detailed list of materials used with unit pricing). Overall very happy with the work. Rob did what the plans called for and more. Materials used were top quality, which resulted in a very solidly built garage. A-Grade Builders turned up on time everytime and some things were completed faster than expeceted. They are also very curtious to neighbours, tidy up all the mess, remove the rubbish, easily contactible and communication regularly. Thanks again, I would recommend A Grade Builders to anyone who wants a thoroughly solid and excellent building. Chas"

    "We had a pretty tricky job to plan and see and Robert was very helpful, gave us a regular updates and told us about issues that were found (we have a house that had some Borer) and made decisions based on this. We were quite demanding and kept on asking for additional work to be completed and this was completed very well and looking forward to the new room once we have finished our bits, at least we now know that the room and house is in better nick than it was before work started, it's also a lot more level."

    "We chose A Grade as they turned up to do the quote when they said they would. They quoted on everything we asked and answered about 100 questions before we took them on. They continued to communicate throughout the job. They gave us an honest quote on a simple flooring job that others quoted us thousands for... A Grade did an excellent job of our roof and took us up on the roof to inspect it when complete. The final bill was not a cent over the original quote so we go a few extras for free. I recommend Robert and A Grade."
