    "I emailed AJ Oaks about the problems with our property at 9pm. I got an email reply at 11pm. Nicola explained why they could not help us but provided a comprehensive email and advice what to do next. I further talked to Nicola the next day and she was very helpful explaining things to me. Thanks, Nicola. The ratings are not really applicable in my feedback as we have not done any work yet. But I feel that I should provide my feedback even though no work is done."

    "Lately I have got a question about my house's cladding and I invited Andrew to check it out onsite. Andrew has agreed to come and provided us very useful opinion on the issue and guided us to a solution. Andrew is also a very nice guy to talk to. Without reservation, I will recommend them to the people who need building work or advice."

    "Andrew didd a small but quite tricky carpentry job for me. He arrived right on time, did a thorough job, and was great to deal with, reasonably priced, and totally professional. I am more than happy to recommend his services. "

    "Andrew was very knowledgable, communication was very clear ie possible risks that could happen that may cost extra (ie installation of windows could cause damage to wood panels above window - Andrew was very careful and no damage done) and was able to complete a difficult task of fitting the windows into spaces. Also installed our rangehood and small section of skirting board. All done to a high standard and cost of job was very reasonable/affordable. I thoroughly recommend Andrew for any building work, window and rangehood installation."

    "We wanted to build a new porch and renovate the bathroom and shower room - Andrew gave thoughtful advice and helped us reach a decision. His work, and that of the sub-contractors (especially the tiler) was very high quality. He communicated with us throughout. It took a little longer than expected, mainly due to delays from suppliers. We are very very happy with the finished result! Andrew gave us a quote for the work which indicated a range - we ended up buying some of the materials direct, the final total bill was within the range. Would definitely recommend Andrew."

    "Andrew arrived on time and was able to give me helpful advice to bring our bathroom into the 21st century. He took into consideration my requests and did the additional work required without costs going too far over what I had budgeted. Andrew was professional and kept me informed of all trade people moving in and out of my house while I was at work.
    The only downside to the renovation was what initially was suppose to take 1.5 weeks took 3 weeks. This was mainly due to the late arrival of the shower unit which put all the trade people behind the eight ball. Earl the plumber was invaluable as he talked me through what was economical, ecological and above all practical units to purchase. I would definitely use Andrew again his workmanship and eye for detail was excellent. Thanks for our modern bathroom.

    "Andrew and Nicola were both really easy to deal with when booking the work and getting the work done. Andrew arrived exactly when he was booked for, the job took how long it was expected to and I was absolutely 100% satisfied. The work could not have been done better. Was a relatively small job but know I know I have a reliable builder I feel I can think seriously about getting other things done."

    "These guys are young, energetic, onto it and straight up 100 per cent honest. My work replacing a mass of rotten weatherboards came in at the lower end of their quoted range - even after some nasty unexpected rottenness was discovered. A slight mis-communication re the building notices put in neighbours letterboxes, but otherwise they kept in touch every step of the way and did everything they said they would. Their apprentice even cut up my old weatherboards into small pieces for firewood! I would absolutely use Andrew and Nichola again. They are great at what they do but more importantly they are thoroughly nice people."

    "I used AJ Oaks Building for the second time recently and I was just as happy the second time around. Andrew very quickly identified the problem causing my door frame to leak and fixed it very efficiently. His communication was great and the work was top standard - even down to removing all traces of building work afterwards.
    I wouldnt hesitate to use AJ Buildng again and would recommend them to anyone - for value and service as well as expert building work.

    "The job was well done at short notice. It was a small job - a hole in the ceiling which needed patching. Everything was done on time as expected. One minor difficulty was that we expected the plasterer contracted to finish off to turn up on a particular day, but he was delayed until the next day. It wasn\'t a problem for us though, and AJ Oaks Building had warned us that it might happen due to the short notice. A quick text message and everything was sorted out for the following day.

    I will be using their services again in the future! Highly recommended."

Couple of minor hiccups with communication (delay in getting the right suppleis) but overall communication was very good and some of the best I have experienced from trades people. Definitely on my list to use again if needed."

    "Andrew did a fantastic job, fixing problems that had arisen with doors sticking where new carpet had been laid. I had initially thought it was only a problem on a single door, but Andrew correctly identified all doors needed fixing which was a great help. Andrew had all the tools to do the job (including a vacuum cleaner to clean up the debris afterwards) and worked quickly and confidently.
    I would recommend A Okay Building to anyone - Andrew is lovely to deal with as well as being a very professional, skillful builder.

    "Andrew was able to figure out what was structurally wrong with our front bedroom very quickly - essentially rot due to a poorly converted porch. The extent of the damage was a little tricky to determine, but Andrew worked above and beyond what you would normally expect, and delivered a first class result. The new weather boards, window-frame and detailing look fantastic. We will definitely be using him again and highly recommend A Okay to anyone needing good craftsmanship. On a personal level, we found Andrew hardworking, reliable and trustworthy - all in all a good bloke!"

    "We needed to have a couple of rotten spots in the window sills of our 100 year old villa cut out and replaced in a hurry as we had house painters on site. A Okay came, provided us with a written quote and undertook the work all within a couple of days. The workmanship was very good and the work extremely competitively priced. This was not an easy job and it was completed in a very craftsman like manner."

    "We had a leak in two rooms. Over a period of a month we had three builders and a roofer who either weren\'t sure of the problem or did fixes like silicone on the outside. It was getting worse so we called Andrew who was a saviour because within half an hour he\'d looked inside and outside of the house and located the problem. It was a leaky pipe which he obviously wasn\'t able to fix, but at least he found the problem, took the ceiling off and put a new ceiling back on after the plumber did his bit. The work was completed to the highest possible workmanship and everything was cleaned and tidied afterwards. He even brought down a vacuum cleaner from his van to vacuum everything up, which we were very impressed with! We are happy customers and very grateful to him for locating this problem and would immediately call him for any future work and thoroughly recommend him as he clearly knows his stuff."
